Score some of the 10 insane misses?
this, and also, what was on display recently sorta was the plan B
playing 3 in the back
abidal not there (he's massive tactically, keeps the shape, doesnt get lost wondering forward like adriano, solid defender)
no predatory striker (villa has been out since the winter broken leg)
iniesta hsan't been the same since last year , quite sluggish
cesc drop in form
xavi has been carrying an achilles injury for over a year last season he was being given injections to continue playing
no Pique for 2 games, then he comes on but gets concussion early on (he was taken to hospital today)
tello is not very "barca-like" in that he has 0 assists, he is a bit like walcott.
messi very quiet last 3 games
not excusing barca's performances, but just keep in mind this hasn't been Pep's plan from the get-go. they'll be back next season assuming guardiola extends his contract. if not there are a few, namely Basiela who is pep's idol and mentor doing his thing at bilbao
