I have got the feeling Ronald Koeman is the worst positioned Barca manager for success in 20 years with the lack of support he is getting from the fans and the club. He openly admitted after the game that he doesn’t have the player’s to play the Barca way, this for me is a sign of accepting defeat with the season barely at 5 games. Their failure to break down Granada who in all earnest sat back for the whole 90 minutes is a sign of lack of creative players which have never lacked at Camp Nou. Koeman has no choice but to play long and hope set pieces get the goals which happened here with Araujo.
Letting go Antoine Griezmann clearly wasn’t Koeman’s decision but a board one in order to put less pressure on the wage bill. But the decision to replace him with Luuk De Jong was his. Could he have for a better player than the Dutchman? I think he could have so that glaring miss by De Jong from a routine header will have fans pointing out that he was the one who picked him to come to Camp Nou. So what next for Barcelona?Wait for the January window,tick. Sack Koeman ,No. Give the young players more game time, absolutely.
