Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba are being three of the players who are disputing everything this season, if they are available: Is it something that should change?

Calendar of FC Barcelona

They are being days complicated for a FC Barcelona that, although it tries it, does not achieve to heave flight. The situation of the team is alarming, in spite of the good feelings that leave split yes and party no. The reality is that, without having finished the month of January, the Barça has remained out of the Glass of Rey, lost the Supercopa of Spain and sacked in December of the Champions League. Simultaneously, it finds to 17 points of the leadership of LaLiga.

The situation is, as little, delicate, and after the defeat in front of the Athletic of Bilbao were few the players that 'saved' by his performance. All the team left a lot that wish and the interrogante of which are, really, the changes that have to effect for 'improve' remains in the air, because even recovering to big part of the effective, the Barça keeps on being a 'machine' of the irregularity.

Xavi has wanted to change him the image of the team and create him an identity (or recover it) and has 'supported' in three of the captains of the team: Sergio Busquets, Gerard Hammered and Jordi Alba. They have been the 'anchor' of the Barça in the beginning of the stage of the egarense and have contested it practically all whenever they have been available, by in front of all the 'wave' of youth that there is in the team, for some 'balance' with the experience, that him leftover to the 'capis'.

However, it is moment to question if the three are to play it all always, as they come doing up to now. The reasons? Every time they are more desacertados and proof of this are the last two parties of the Barça, in which Busquets and Alba have been the most distinguished of the team. 'Busi' Was protagonist against the Real Madrid for losing the balloon of the so much of the goal of Vinícius and not knowing surpass to the centre of the field madridista, whereas this Thursday Alba was surpassed, during all the party, by Nico Williams.

The player bilbaíno did party by the band and practically all the actions of danger arrived by this side. Jordi Alba was unable to defend it and remained 'portrayed' in the party. Intencionalmente, also was the culprit of the penal for the Athletic in the extention, but Xavi defended him in room of press: "The commitment of Jordi Alba is intachable", stood out the trainer.

Gerard Hammered does not save to come under scrutiny and against the Athletic was important in the exit of the balloon, but yes that appeared in the photo of the second so much of the rojiblancos, after not being able to refuse the balloon in the area that finish colándose in the goal. In Saint Mamés, was hit, even more than Araújo, but remains to ask: When it was Eric García, how has to be configured the axis of the defence?

They will follow 'to the control' of the Barça?

They are not being the best weeks for the captains of the Barça. Jordi Alba recognised it after the party in Saint Mamés: "we Have to recapacitar, I the first, and to be followed"... And has the key point. If in the team follow the meritocracia, it will be necessary to begin to ask if they are to be headlines above the rest. It is true, also, that there is not with what rotar and that, in the left side there is not replacement for Alba, but will arrive a point -if this follows like this- that the situation will be unsustainable.

The changes are necessary and the revolution generacional also. We can be in front of the last months of Hammered, Busquets or Alba like indisputable headlines, because for the moment they follow without justifying it, further of the leadership that can show in the field. It will be this sufficient?
