    Breakdown Weekly #2: Riqui Puig: Answer to Barca's Problems? Overrated? Why did Koeman Ignore Puig?

    Breakdown Weekly #2: Riqui Puig: Answer to Barca's Problems? Overrated? Why did Koeman Ignore Puig?

    The BarcaBreakdown discuss Riqui Puig, the man who so many love and want to see more play, while others debate whether he deserves so much adulation. FC Barcelona certainly need to improve and with Pedri tired, we wonder why Koeman decided to ignore Puig for much of the season. Riqui certainly offers a play style which Barca lack, that in the mold of an offensive, forward looking midfielder along the lines of Xavi and Iniesta. With a stagnant midfield that sees little forward passes from Pedri and Frenkie De Jong when things go wrong, we discuss whether having Puig play more throughout the season would have left us with a better "go to" sub than Ilaix Moriba at the end of the season.
     
    With recent news about Laporta being upset that Koeman ignored Puig for much of the season, Puig's place under Koeman (or another manager) next season is a huge point of discussion.

    Levante 3-3 FC Barcelona Falter..Again! Messi, Dembele Score, Roberto Woeful, Koman's Job Questioned

    Levante 3-3 FC Barcelona Falter..Again! Messi, Dembele Score, Roberto Woeful, Koman's Job Questioned

    The BarcaBreakdown discuss another key loss for Koeman's Barca against Levante, as the La Liga title is almost certainly out of our reach. With Messi, Pedri and Dembele scoring, the defense again failed our team as Sergi Roberto was played as Center Back in a 3-5-2, a truly puzzling decision by Koeman. Pique, Lengelet, and the defense in general seemed to relive previous collapses as we could not keep Levante from scoring.
     
    Overall, after a great early 2021 and a bad close to the season, the big question will be whether or not Laporta will keep Koeman as coach next season. Regardless, it also seems clear we need to shore up our defense with Erica Garcia, Emerson, and some competition for Marc Andre Ter Stegen in net.

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid: Koeman Big Game Draw, Riqui Puig? Messi and Suarez Reunited as Rivals

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid: Koeman Big Game Draw, Riqui Puig? Messi and Suarez Reunited as Rivals

    The BarcaBreakdown discuss the 0-0 draw against Atletico Madrid, as Messi and Co. failed to take the big victory that could have secured the La Liga Title. Unfortunately, Busquets was hurt, Pedri and De Jong were quiet in attack, and Dembele was substituted too late. Koeman again failed a big game as Barca continued to drop points as the Liga title slipped further out of our hands.
    As a big battle between Someone and Koeman ensued, neither team took full control as Atletico performed better in the first half while Barca stormed back in the second half. We now have to have BOTH Real Madrid drop points against Sevilla (or the rest of the three games), and hope that Atletico drop points as well.

    Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid La Liga 2021 Match Preview! Simeone vs. Koeman Job on the Line?

    Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid La Liga 2021 Match Preview! Simeone vs. Koeman Job on the Line?

    The Barca Breakdown discuss the HUGE game for the La Liga title, as we hope FC Barcelona and Leo Messi can stop Luis Suarez' return to the Camp Nou and defeat Diego Simeone's team after an early season loss. We predict whether we will see Sergi Roberto, Mingueza, Dest, or Dembele in the starting line up, as well as recap the first game from November. The team has dramatically transformed, though our recent form has left much to be desired. Though we do not control our own fate, with Real Madrid playing Sevilla the following day, this could be our last big game to prove that Koeman deserves to keep his job and make a final push for the title! We hope the team can avoid silly defensive mistakes and that Ter Stegen can rival the best goalkeeper in La Liga this season, Jan Oblak.

    Breakdown Weekly #1: TalkFCB Quits Twitter? Neymar to Barca? Fati Surgery? Messi Team Lunch Drama!

    Breakdown Weekly #1: TalkFCB Quits Twitter? Neymar to Barca? Fati Surgery? Messi Team Lunch Drama!

    The Barca Breakdown is back to discuss the large channel TalkFCB quitting twitter due to unfair criticism and Neymar rumors increasing as PSG lost to Manchester City in the Champions League Semifinal. We also discuss Ansu Fati's surgery to have his meniscus removed and the drama surrounding Messi's team lunch ahead of the Atletico Madrid game on Saturday. We discuss the need for Barca supporters to stay positive and respect people who put in the work to make content, though Messi is not above criticism, especially on penalties. We think Neymar rumors will run wild this summer, but the team should stay focused on young stars such as Mbappe, Lautaro, or Halaand to look to the future. Unfortunately, Ansu Fati needs another surgery, though we are glad he should be healthy by the start of next season!

    FC Barcelona 3-2 Valencia Review: Messi Wonderful, Ter Stegen Blunder, Liga Title Hopes Still Alive!

    FC Barcelona 3-2 Valencia Review: Messi Wonderful, Ter Stegen Blunder, Liga Title Hopes Still Alive!

    The BarcaBreakdown discuss the 3-2 victory against La Liga, with two wonderful Lionel Messi goals helping to keep the title hope alive. Real Madrid play Sevilla next week as we challenge Atletico while we hope Frenkie De Jong can keep up his stellar play. Busquets again looked lively helping take the Messi missed penalty into a goal opportunity that helped tie the game. Once again, as in Granada, our poor defense and awful cross defending put us at risk of losing points. We also question whether or not Ter Stegen is slipping lately and why he is struggling. Overall, we were happy to see Messi lead the team back, with Griezmann again scoring an important goal for Barca. We analyze the good and bad, so that we can be prepared for what to expect when Luis Suarez and Simeone's Atletico come to face FC Barcelona next week at the Camp Nou.
