The FC Barcelona follows put of full in the fight by the titles, and in the last weeks has ilusionado with the recovery of Leo Messi. The one of Rosario was going through a bad patch in the start of the season because the physical problems kept him separated of the terrains of game, but once confirmed his return and his good feelings, the crack is growing and throwing of the car with an impressive security.

In the last times has accepted that the 'Messidependencia' is not a defect of the team, but an argument to use to his favour. As they have warned others and recently has remembered Ernesto Valverde, enjoy of the best player of the world and one of the best of the history is not something by what have to ask pardon to the opponents, but a source of talent, goals and victories of which resupply while it last.

The problem is that the Barcelona group has important lagoons to collective level, and there is little with what can back to the '10'. In what it goes of campaign the results have saved a hope that does not go to abandon, but the game and the attitude have left symptoms that invite to the worry. When the attacker is not, does not find fine or is too covered, there is few that can assume responsibilities. With some chispazos of Luis Suárez, Marc-André ter Stegen or Gerard Hammered does not suffice.

The positive part is that the classification and the 'timing' of the season leave an interesting margin of reaction, because if it is necessary to argue, analyse and look for solutions for the pothole, from the first place in LaLiga and the Champions can do better. That is the truce that can save to the Griezmann, Dembélé or Junior Firpo, and that it can allow that more stars add to the cause and that the group order his ideas.

The negative is that if the situation does not improve, the consequences can translate in a drought of trophies that anybody would explain when in the changing room commands, precisely, a Messi that needs to feel supported. As they already showed Rome or Liverpool, the football does not play only, and when it arrive the hour of the truth, the staff has to take a step forward and back to a crack that already has showed to be above the rest.

The project 'post-Messi' is not settling

Further of the assessments of present, also there is a clear warning for the future, because the foundations of the era 'post-Messi' are not cuajando. The most evident in spite of the irregular illusions with Of Jong, Arthur, Ansu Fati or Carles Pérez is that all they need time, and that for when the Argentinian decide to give this feared step to a side -that for the moment neither contemplate-, will have to be obligatoriamente ready.

The Barça has lived a clear example very near, with a Real Madrid desconsolado without Cristiano Ronaldo. The course of a legend of this dimension leaves a difficult hole to fill, what forces to an effort in the planning that to date has left more doubts that certainties. It was with this trainer or with another, with the players that today are or with canteranos and more signings, touches to consolidate a project that for the moment only has an ace in his stirs.
