Barça lost the first title of the season on Thursday, since the qualification for the Spanish Supercup final was for Atlético de Madrid. The defeat of the catalans in the tournament leaves several important conclusions
The FC Barcelona sacked this Thursday of the Supercopa of Spain in a party of crazy in which it showed two very differentiated face. The first, and more recognizable, arrolló to an Athletic that survived thanks to Jan Oblak and to the VAR; and the second, that already has cost him numerous discontents in what it goes of campaign, was the one who buried him, because it allowed that the Madrilenian resurrected with too much ease in ten minutes of intensity.
After a first analysis in hot, the Catalans have given several days of reflection, with four days without trainings in which the aim is to freshen the legs and the head. The good game exhibited largely of the crash in the King Abdullah Sports City does that it was harder still assimilate the hit, but the priority in the changing room is to raise and look to forward, because it still remains a lot for contesting.
It is thus that, as they warned some 'heavy weights', touches to take out important conclusions to short, half and long term, so that the current project do not remain touched and sunk and so that the following start with illusions renewed. The experience has to convert the last tropiezos in a key point from which resurgir, and separate the ghosts, critical and doubts that would carry to the desunión that look for the rivals.
The conclusions of the defeat of the Barça
This team has a lot of route
Although it is obvious that the Barça is in full process of transition, also is it that it does not be necessary to demolish a project that still has a lot for offering. In Saudi Arabia saw a team that did time that did not shine like this, because it contained to one of the best groups that at present exist in Europe. The Athletic did not show his best version and this partly went by the inspiration of the culés, that manacled it and devoted to look for the cracks in a blindaje that to Diego Simeone always is used to him work.
The combinations accelerated in three chambers of field and the pressure after loss, more ordered that in the last months, was, obviously, more effective, what allowed to accumulate spare occasions to win. If acaso was missing something of fortune for esquivar to Jan Oblak and to the VAR, but as it aimed with tarpaulin Leo Messi, already has given an interesting step forward. The first 80 minutes have to show the way, and no the group desubicado and disordered that in a lot of stadiums have seen to happen.
The responsibility shows in the field
That they did a lot of things very does not remove that they did other a lot of evil, and this precisely is what it is necessary to eradicate. The fans has tired to listen after each 'prick' that the cracks go to work a lot and that his only aim is to improve, but the football does not understand of words and the only that voucher is what shows on the lawn. The '10' spoke of "childish errors" and Antoine Griezmann signalled that "they cost parties, Leagues and Champions", and both had a lot of truth in his messages. The problem is that it does not be necessary to criticise only to the defence, because the disconnections are fault of all, and are those that are preventing to have continuity. The battles last 90 minutes and discount.
The changing room needs a shake
After so many years of glory, is impossible to think that it does not be necessary to confront to the change and to the farewell, and this changing room shows increasingly that needs a shake. Progressively it has gone rejuvenating the staff and the veterans that remain are in good form, although perhaps it would be necessary dosificarles more and atinar with a greater precision with his apparitions. The Barça misses to Sergio Busquets when it is not but also suffers too much with him in the field, so more than marrying with what a day was, touches to think in how can him manage better so that it follow contributing what has.
In any case, and doing quotation to a delicate subject, perhaps the goodbye of Ernesto Valverde to final of course would be a good news, because the renewal would give something of spark to a team that is remaining grey. It is erroneous to throw him all the fault of this crisis to a trainer that has to assume responsibilities but that does not have them all, because they are his footballers those that play and in the field have seen attitudes that can not forgive. Even so, with all the well and all the bad that has contributed the Txingurri, was Xavi, Koeman or Have Hag, the one who avenges will have to win the confidence and the respect of the stars and clear them that it is necessary to give the size to play.
The bet has to combine style and character
It is so important that the Barça recover his style that in occasions forgets that the character also marks differences, and the attitude has remained in the caseta in more than a disappointment. In addition to seeing to a group that does not know to defend with the possession, hurts that the hunger and the harp do not sustain him in more occasions, precisely what saved to the Athletic and allowed him tumbar to his big rival. Xavi and Andrés Iniesta, for putting an example, helped to Messi to base of football and touch, touch and touch, but also with an intensity that has lost . It can not be that ones run and others no, because in this sport, if they do not have win to play the eleven, is impossible that two or three cost to triumph.
