After the debacle of last season against Liverpool in the Champions League and against Valencia in the Cup, Barça made four signings to change the face of the team. Now you need your best version
After the two consecutive disasters in the Champions League, with two traced back historical of the Liverpool and of the Rome to take down to the FC Barcelona of Europe, from the club culé tried do a wash of face to the team with signings. Thus, they arrived two stellar signings -Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie of Jong- and other two in shape of bet (Net and Junior Firpo).
By the moment, the Dutch is the one who is giving a more regular paper and determinant in the Barcelona team. Of Jong has turned into a fixed in the centre of the field of the FC Barcelona and in one of the canalizadores of the game of the team of Ernesto Valverde. In fact, the best parties of the culés coincide with the days of greater his inspiration.
Little by little, Of Jong is adueñando of the control in the Barça as already it did it in the Ajax. It is true that still is missing him pulir some details and avoid parties like the one of the Slavia of Prague, in which the Dutch was not at all hit, or like the ones of Granada or Valencia, in which his game was flatter. Thus, the influence of the of Arkel in the game of the team is putting of self-evident, and now only remains him achieve a stable regularity in his game.
Less well they are him going the things to Antoine Griezmann, the another 'galactic' that arrived in summer. On the contrary that to Of Jong, to the French forward is costing him much more fit in the diagram of the FC Barcelona, maybe because it has been undressed of the role of mediapunta that had in the Athletic of Madrid. In the Barça, the Frenchman plays of extreme, as it did in the Real Sociedad, but his contribution to the offensive game of the team is not fulfilling the expectations.
It is true that, to level of attitude, little can him reproach. Griezmann Runs like anybody, help in defence, presiona and deploys physically. But the Barça did not pay 140 million euros by an extreme that defends: Griezmann has to step advance and show a quality that only has showed in dropper, in duels like the ones of the Betis in the Camp Nou or the Eibar in Ipurua. Ofensivamente, needs his quality to opt to the titles.
Residual paper of Net and Junior Firpo
If Of Jong and Griezmann were the signings of which expected an immediate impact in the game of the team, Net and Junior Firpo arrived to have a more secondary paper. For the moment, the Brazilian goalkeeper has not debuted in official party and the Hispanic side-dominican has turned into the enésima victim of Ernesto Valverde, that does not seem to trust he in spite of that endorsed his arrival.
