It has been another summer of drama in Barcelona. There is still uncertainty about the future of the coach, his great figure left, La Liga further lowered its salary limit for next season and they have not managed to give way to a handful of unwanted players with high salaries, inherited from the previous regime.
President Joan Laporta started the summer saying he needed time to "reflect" on whether Ronald Koeman was the right man to lead Barça. In the end, given the lack of options to replace him and what it would have cost them to remove him, he decided to give the Dutch coach a second season.
To add insult to injury, Lionel Messi, the team's most important player, had to leave the club, and is already playing for Paris Saint Germain. He was followed today by Antoine Griezmann, who seemed to be the team's standard bearer, after the Argentine's departure.
To focus on the front, is to cover the other eye with the palm of your hand. The truth is that Barcelona is much less in all places on the pitch, but if we refer to the offense of the team, and the difficulty it had already had to score goals, it is worth noting that it is a forward that is far from be elite. It is true, Memphis Depay arrived, and Sergio Agüero joins him, who is injured, but the truth is that not even in Catalonia they are convinced that they will be competitive.
