No, Boetang to Barça
post #1565 of 1994

why do they even wanted Boateng? I mean Barca has better players in their team. For sure, he is world champion now but still a bit overrated if you ask me... never mind, would have been good for Boateng :D

In central defence? Who? That is their weakest area, even their fullbacks are suspect at actual defending. Bartra has potential but has not played much so some depth would help.

Boateng is not the greatest but would represent a bit of an upgrade nonetheless.

Bartra is not good enough and Pique is dodgy at times..

They have no cover there apart from Matthieu.

Matthieu is 30 and has got a decent pedigree..

They need to play him..

I think we agree Lasbar. Bartra is still young so I will give him some time to prove himself, like Boateng was only 22 at City.

Hence bringing in Vermaelen and/or Boateng or someone else will allow them to put Mascherano back in as a defensive midfielder as opposed to relying on him as our best CB.

Mascherano as CB was surreal but he was quite efficient despite his lack of height.

Through gritted teeth I may agree...

Masche is a champ, no matter where he plays. May have had the ArgNT captains band taken away in an effort to fuel Messi (which failed...), but that guy has heart and grit.
post #1573 of 1994
Oh don't get me wrong, I love Javier and agree he is all heart and has played great. I think the team is strengthened with him in his natural role and two natural CB behind him. Overall that is a stronger defensive unit.

And yes, we need a healthy comeback year for Messi and hopefully he and Neymar and the one who I will not name can click better.

Looks like Vermalen is headed for Barça. So there's the CB pairing. Bench Piqué? Matthieu + Vermalen?
post #1575 of 1994
Better than seeing him go to united.
