What On Earth Are Barcelona Thinking?

    Runtime: 11:32

    Following a humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Barcelona sacked manager Quique Setien and terminated the contract of their sporting director Eric Abidal.
    In Setien's place, Barca have appointed the Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman, who was most recently sacked by Everton within the club game, with the Toffees in a relegation scrap despite significant investment.
    As such, some people are wondering why Barcelona's unpopular president Josep Bartomeu has appointed Koeman, what impact it might have on where Lionel Messi plays next season, and what it means for the future of the La Liga giants.
    In this video, HITC Sevens examines all of those questions, and attempts to understand what Barcelona's rationale might be.

Since 2018,Barca has been declining for many reasons like for example,they lost their way of football that Cruyff established and they also failed in their youth academy,La Masia doesn't produce as much talent as before and the ones that did make it barely plays in the starting XI,Ansu Fati and Sergi Roberto are the 2 last players that made their way to the First team,Carles Alena?Loaned out,Alex Collado?Not even playing,they've produced more flops than talents such as Bojan Krkic and Giovanni Dos Santos

Bayern's whole starting xi is 60000000 pounds less than coutinho who is 30 years old and loaned to bayern as bayern in the champions league and won barca 8-2. And that is all true

Why do you only mention Everton and Valencia when it comes to the managerial career of Ronald Koeman? How did he do at Ajax, PSV, Feyenoord, Benfica, & Southampton? He also had 4 games against Joachim Löw's German team. How did that work out? Don't underestimate the tactical nous of the Koeman, dude...;)

The problem is the players became bigger that the club. Players having no respect for training and working hard. Plus Messi became a problem when everything depended on him. Overpaid players and wrong side of 30. Madrid has 1 problem contract in Bale. Barcelona has 4 or 5 players that get paid for just sitting around

As a dutch guy I really don’t think helll fit the job but the one of the reason they took him is because of his low value and because in his contract with the Dutch national team he made a clause which lets him leave the National only for Barcelona. That’s a open love letter to Barcelona and they took advantage of this

The reason they didnt go for Xavi(unproven coach btw) is because he is being promised by a rival Presidental candidate so he wont take the job while Bartomeu is in charge. So Barto went for Koeman.. Koeman knows that if Barto loses the elections that will probably be replaced(unless he has an insanely good season) by Xavi

Always enjoying your content a lot but even as a longtime Real Madrid supporter, I have to say that you went way to harsh on Koeman and you should have done more research here. Sure he did have some bad campaigns at AZ, Valencia and the second season at Everton. However, he did great with Southampton, Feyenoord, Everton in the first season and brought the spirit back in the Dutch team.

Puyol left Xavi left Iniesta left Neymar left None of them has been replaced correctly the quality just went down really bead when you play with Sergi Roberto and Vidal instead of Xavi and Iniesta obviously its very difficult to replace such awesome players but come on why the hell would you buy Vidal,Arda Turan,Digne or pay fucking 140m for Coutinho just bullshit management ...

Some brutal disrepect to Zlatan. That "dinosaur" cleaned up pretty well in the EPL not too long ago. Was easily Man U's biggest threat, and would've been a top scorer in league if not for injury. Awful commentary.

I feel like you are severely underestimating Barcelona's squad. You say Real had great players, and Chelsea too, but they needed a coach to make it work. Well, this is exactly the same situation at Barca: Griezzman, Ter Stegen, Pique, De Jong, Coutinho, Dembele, Fati, Puig, Semedo, Alba, Sergi, Trincao. Sure there are too many aging players, they need to offload a few. Sure there are some young players, but I for one do think they are a good fit for the first team. Imagine telling a 16 year old Messi he is too young for the first team. No, the truth is Barca have a good squad, which they should fill with prospects and youth players, so the transfer policy should be better. And they need a new president. I seriously think you can and should be more optimistic when there is a new influx of young players in this squad with a Barca legend as Koeman as coach.

Noone understands anything. Koeman comes in to destroy the Messi Maffia and to make the necessary changes which has been postponed by Messis hangmen! This will take 2, max 3 years as planned to pave the way to Xavi, who is their real objective. The only one strong enough to get Messi out is Koeman! And he will do it. Barcelona was mediocre thanks to Messi.He is a bigger problem for a coach then he is an asset! On top of that the reporter failed to acknowledge that Koeman at Valencia had more issues fighting internal politics while also changing one generation for another!. Which will also be the threat in Barcelona. In short, the reporter leaves out ALL important information WHY Barcelona made the ONLY logica choice just to put his miserable opinion on a louse 3 minute video. For that noone knows his name and everyone knows Koeman!

You probably make a lot of good points and sure followed Barca more intens than me but I do feel you are a bit 2 harch on Koeman. I ve never been a huge Koeman-fan and he is mostly known to be a highly pragmatic coach. Borring one could say. But still his achievements are a bit greater than you point out in your video. He reached the quarterfinal CL with Ajax. He brought fallen Dutch outsider Feyenoord back to the Dutch top 3 with very little money-power. He did I believe very well at Southampton. And yes struggled at Everton, but hey who didnt? His succes with the Dutch national team is evident and yes that is no club but still it is remarkable. Also you cant completely ignore the Frenkie De Jong signing when talking about the choice for Koeman. Not that a player should lead to a coach. But the idea of a new start at Barca is symbolized by Frenkie I think. And if Frenkie finally gets used proper that will make a difference, I assure you. Not a big Koemanfan, like I said. But there is a little more to him than you mention.

With football is really simple; if there's no money, there's no music. PSG, Man. City, and mentioned AC Milan (in negative way atm - but when it was financed by Silvio Berlusconi they were ofc able to buy the best players, btw Silvio Berlusconi and AC Milan is/are responsoble ie. he/they started all this astronomic fees and wages madness) are the best example of this.

People (including the author/s of this video) don't REALLY understand and see just how BIG & CLOSE the parallels between Milan 2011/12 and Barcelona 2020/21 ARE! EXTREMELY SIMILAR! Btween the late 1980's and late 2000's, AC Milan was most justifiably dubbed by all relevant UEFA & FIFA officials "The most dominant European club for the LAST 2 DECADES!" Just for the ones who know nothing else but EPL + Real and Barca, and those who were born yesterday (not that they matter really - these are people who truly believe that a team like Arsenal is better than Borussia Dortmund, or Inter Milan = totally dumb idiots who know nothing about football! But just in a case they're reading), In those 20 years, Milan won 5 UCL titles, played 8 UCL finals, and god knows how many semis and 1/4 finals! Only in the 2000s, two of their players won Ballon d'Or, they had the strongest footballers on every position, etc, etc... NOW, LOOK AT only less than 10 years later! Or rather, what happened in these 10 years?! Due to a series of bad decisions, terrible transfer market policies, overpaid old stars, not investing enough in the Primavera team... Milan found themselves playing in UCL only twice (and that was in 2012 and 2014, when some of the old elite spirit was still there), and afterwards, they managed to get to the 6th place in Serie A ONLY two times! As a result, they changed owners three times in three years, the revenue level plumitted, wins became rare and rare...and club fell down BIG TIME! Even now, after a series of good moves (after a long time) and being forced to completely change their strategy, Milan shows some signs of beginning to return on the right path, but they are still (no one is) sure that they've gotten a firm step on that path towards recovery and coming back amongst the elite! And even if they do, given that they don't have owners like PSG and M-City who are throwing money away on everything, it'll take them at least 4, 5 years in order to get back amogst the European Top Guns! Now, with everything that was happening in Barcelona in the last few years (if you take a closer look, as I said, the similarities with Milan are more than HUGE)(, the terrible transfer policies, fucking up the primavera squad, (La Mesia), having overpaid old stars, partying with their best players, heading towards financial troubles... the chances we see Barca repeating Milan's scenario ARE HUGE! Let's hope it won't get there and the team will recover in a 2 or 3 seasons, but, with this last moe, starting a "war" with their most legendary player, instead of gracefully letting him go, and with uncertain future of the other players, and unlike Milan (or any other team in the world, for that matter), Barca's HIGHLY POLITICAL ATMOSPHERE inside the structures of the club (just remember Bobby Robson's words about his impressions during his time at Barcelona)... the chances we get to see another AC Milan scenario, in which by that time, Milan could very well be getting on healthy feet, is VERY LIKELY!

As I remember Ferguson left Man U with a team full of youth and experience that had reached a champions league final a year or two before. That team could have still competed at the top. I think the mistake was getting someone like moyes to come in and take over. Just like there are different tiers of players there are also different tiers of managers and moyes is a second rate manager not good enough for a club like United. Moyes destroyed Man U.
