If you are a follower of FC Barcelona you might wonder what the hell is going on in la liga. One step back one step forward going no where. Theirs 2-1 defeat to Cadiz was as poor defensively as they come. 2 goals courtesy of horror errors from Te Stegen and Busquets gifted the win to Cadiz. Cadiz now claim to have beaten Real Madrid and Barcelona in the same season a rare feat.
Similar to Arsenal in the premier league,Barca have not all been bad in their defeats. But a lack of coaching particularly in the goalkeeping department is to blame for most loss of points. The winner by Alvaro Negredo was down to lack of communication between defender and keeper. The first by Cadiz was due to the Barca defender attempting to head a ball that he should really be trying to kick. This caused him to divert the ball towards his own net leading the attacker to be onside and with an open goal.
I am not sure holding on to Messi was the best thing for both parties. Clearly Messi is not putting his best effort for the club . Moving him on was probably the best thing. I would build a team around Fati assisted by Coutinho.
