    The end of an era indeed. If Messi goes, Barcelona could become what Manchester United were for the better part of this decade after SAF- a middling Europa League club.

    Horrendous purchases during the past three years. To mention a few (Gomes, Digne, Alcazar, Coutinho — what they didn’t need is a Griezman type, but a Dembele type who can carry the mail and generate speed and excitement. Re the game, Barca coach in advance knew that Bayern were a significantly faster team: they should have started Fati, Puig and the faster and better defensively Rakatic instead of lumbering Bousquets. Will Ter Stegen, arguably the best shot stopper in the world, ever master the art of long distribution. Since he hasn’t he should have been coached to desist.

    Feel for Setien, but his stint at Barca reminds me a bit of Lopetegui at Madrid. Both decent managers, but perhaps better suited to clubs outside Spain’s current big 3.

    That being said, Barcelona’s transfer policy has been horrendous. They’ve splashed big money on Dembele, Coutinho and Griezmann (all over 100m), and they were all only fit for the bench yesterday. The lesser spoken about the Braithwaite signing the better. Seems to point to a big management problem.
