Is Xavi Finally Proving Points at Barcelona?
it's been a long weekend without the EPL!
I am not really a fan of the Spanish League but I do find/create time to follow up with Barcelona and Real Madrid. Real Madrid is actually my favourite team in from Spain.
I could remember that I used to hear a lot about how Xavi isn't matured enough for Barcelona's job yet and then, I personally didn't see much of a big deal in him coaching the team and why?
Firstly, he was a great or rather one of the greatest players to have played in and for Barcelona; he understands the club's tactics and DNA so well. That fact alone makes me feel that I should succeed at coaching the team.
Secondly, the team he worked with before Barcelona, he had a very beautiful record there which shows that he's a fine coach material but I also think it's normal for people to think he wouldn't succeed at the job.
For me, I believed and believe, if Zidane could be that successful at Real Madrid then Xavi could do more at Barcelona too with time.
I don't know if it's right to say that he's lucky this season considering the players the club's management was able to help him secure for the season but then, I must say that the management had really done a great job by helping him to secure some certain players this season.
At this point, I feel with what Xavi has at his disposal, he ought to be able to secure at least a trophy with the team this season. He doesn't just have quality players in the starting squad but he also has a very fine depth to it on his bench.
Perhaps the team could have sold Depay instead of Aubameyang.
The statement above is the most frequent statement I'd been hearing from Barcelona fans around for some few weeks now. They feel it would have been better to keep Auba instead of Depay and to some extent, I really do agree to that.
Depay isn't and can't be a better support nor competition to Lewandoski.
Talking about Lewandoski, he had a goal to his name yesterday alongside two beautiful assists. At first, I didn't expect him to pick up such a beautiful form with Barcelona this season but like I said earlier, the new signings the club made this season has really changed Barcelona's game to something even more beautiful.
With no doubt, I feel Lewandoski would have the Spanish golden boot to himself this season with ease. I really do not see that much coming from Benzema this season and I think that's that biggest competition Lewandoski has in the league at the moment.
Barcelona is fairly behind Real Madrid with two points but the two teams had scored some number of goals this season in just five games. Although Real Madrid had conceded more while Barcelona had just conceded just one.
I think I could say Barcelona's defence is quite massive so far this season but then, there's still plenty of time and I hope they would keep proving me right.
I feel just like many other seasons, it's clear again that the league title is either going with Real Madrid or Barcelona again this season but before I stand by my assumptions firmly, I would love to watch the first El Clasico for this season first!

I do agree with you on this, when Xavi came to Barcelona the club was 8th on the Laliga Santander table, he managed to turn the team around and before the end of the season, Barca was second on the table. Xavi has already shown how good a manager he is and this season I know he will definitely win a trophy with the club.
Hian nwanna,u neva even address d point u raise o.
I don't see where the writer says Xavi's coaching,doesn't merit the players brought in. He's only just kinda surprised that Xavi has such wealth at his disposal. I stand to be corrected by @nucleus-tezz himself.
A lot of people out there will count Xavi lucky,not just because of the exquisite talents they now boast(see the talents) but also they fact that they achieved this in a time of cash squeeze.
Lol my bad, autocorrect has set off my point, I totally agree with @nucleus-tezz point about Xavi's managing skills in Barcelona.
Lol... We approach with replies differently but then, let's give Xavi this season to know if a hype would be needed on the long run.
Ok well,you can be part of the "let's give", I opt out please.
You may have seen my post I referenced here. I am with @iamchuks with the confidence he has.
Let's see of you beliefs would come true.
Hi, when I saw the heading,I thought I would read that,you were not sure on Xavi initially, but I see that's not the case and you have developed your points well.
Then the Barca fans are right on Auba and it's not like their team made a mistake either,Xavi wanted him to stay and he spoke out,just the way he did when he wanted Dembele to stay.
But what do you do? Auba wants to go,that's it. And why won't he go? He's 34,he needs to play regularly at his age. I mean,a Champions league club comes calling(and that shows his quality), even some Barca fans won't blame him for responding to the call.
It's a fact that Depay is no Auba,if Lewa was not signed,Auba will play ahead of Depay surely. However,let's not talk like Depay is trash, he can do a fair job of assisting Lewa,when necessary. Afterall does Real have a top striker on the bench as a replacement for Benzema?
So here comes Barca,my post on them, they are definitely back!
Xavi has proposed a project that is gradually solidifying. The truth is that Barcelona is plagued with star players and we will see if over the course of the season it will all be true or a mirage
For me, he has this season to prove that he's more like a coach to be compared to Pep!
Hehe, "plagued with star players".
Wonderfully put @pacobeta365
