After having contested the three only parties of the pre-season of the team blaugrana, is moment to analyse cuales are the positive and negative appearances
The pre-season of the FC Barcelona, this year, only has consisted of three meetings, further of the trainings under the orders of Ronald Koeman. The parties against the Club Gimnàstic of Tarragona, Girona FC and Elche CF have left joys and remarkable disappointments. Also they remain some doubts that will have to clear along these weeks
In the first place, as it could not be of another form, have to mention to the best player of the world: Lionel Messi. The fact that, finally, have opted for following a year more in Barcelona, in spite of the reasons, represents, by himself only, a joy for the culés. Besides, it has gone back to good level, as we could see, especially, in the crossing in front of the Girona.
The new incorporations also have represented a puff of cool air in the changing room blaugrana. Pedri Has left to see cual was the reason by which the Barça decided to bet by him like proposal of future. Trincao, on the other hand, has showed to have the sufficient level to be a player regulate in the rotations of Koeman for the first team.
Anyway, the elder of the joys for the culés is the state of form of a player that already had dressed the colours of the Barça: Philippe Coutinho. It has showed that the cession to the Bayern of Munich has seated him frankly well; it has come with a physical level something upper to the rest and, the most important, with win to be protagonist taking responsibilities in the important moments.
Two big players had to show a jump of quality with regard to the previous season: Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembélé. The exjugador of the Athletic of Madrid did not do a bad campaign in the previous edition, even so, was not to the level that expected him ; and the extreme, frustrated by the injuries, could not contribute as much as the club needed
After the meetings that has contested the Barça of pre-season, both have left a feeling agridulce. Grizi, in spite of annotating until in two occasions, has been quite missing when it would have to be one of the leading players. On the other hand, Dembélé, has showed that it is a technically exquisite player, but that still has a lot that learn to tactical level.
The disappointments of the season, this time, do not come by the performance of some player in the field, but they proceed of the sportive management of the club. In the first place, the news that Koeman does not go to have Riqui Puig has been a disappointment for the barcelonismo, and more still, taking into account the last parties of the previous season.
Finally, it seems that, to fault of two weeks for the closing of the market veraniego of signings, the staff follows something descompensada. The priority was to reinforce the line defender with a central, and second, a leading pure centre. The defence keeps on being the same that the past season, and the leading centre has not arrived. To other the operation gone out of the FC Barcelona has not worked so well like all expected.
Like this it was the victory of the Barça in the Gamper (1-0)
