Dembele keeps getting better with each game. Hope he keeps this up
He certainly is but he could be a lot better. Watching him is very frustrating sometimes. Easy misplaced passes, loses the ball quite often and is sometimes lost on the pitch.

He's still quite young and if he keeps his head down and works hard, he will be one of the best for sure.

This Messi guy slotting home 2 free kicks sublimely and adding an assist, 8 successful dribbles and 5 big chances created... He deserves that 5th spot in the Ballon d'Or election this year.
Really? 5th is too much. Every tom, dick and harry can do that
When I think of Iniesta who scored the winning goal for Spain in WC 10 and all his on the field magic , the most fair player ever, he never won the ballon d'or , I doubt the fairness/authenticity of this award.
Seriously, they should find a way to award the ballon d'or to Andres.
That said, I do support awarding the ballon d'or to someone other than Messi & Ronaldo, these two guys are in another league of their own, but they've won it more than enough, time for someone else to win it.
2018 was a disappointing year when it comes to individual brilliance in football. I'm biased, of course, but I feel Messi should've won it, followed in 2nd place by David Silva, 3rd place for Modric, 4th for De Bruyne, 5th for Ronaldo.

Griezmann is a joke; he's top 50, not top 5. Mbappé is insanely good for a teenager, but not top 5 in the world yet amongst all the big boys. The focus for this individual trophy is FAR too mich on team trophies won and the World Cup. David Silva isn't even top 30 but he's probably been the best midfielder of 2018. Then there's players like Ter Stegen, De Gea and a host of great defenders who don't even get mentioned... Just ridiculous. As if it requires more talent to score goals than to deny them. It just requires different talents.

Team statistics taken into account on an individual award always rubbed me the wrong way. Reserves get medals too, but doesn't mean they did anything special.

Defenders will always be at a disadvantage because at it's core football is about handling the ball and best at that usually play at the front. Strikers dominate these awards because they score goals as well and that's what people care about.

At some point it becomes a popularity contest. You put the greatest player in the world in a mid table team, have him score 50 goals and it won't matter unless the team wins something. Ridiculous.

It's the reason Ramos keeps showing up in best11s all the time. He scores goals and his team wins. Real Madrid the best team in the world because they won a select few matches. Same thing.
+1
Congrats to them for being the top three but this award no longer means sh** to me since non-footballing factors became the main basis since years.
i choose to enjoy the real football magicians and ballers (that according to fifa and uefa didnt make it to top 3), kids can enjoy the award.
Ballon d'or is a popularity contest. Sometimes they give based on individual brilliance and sometimes based on trophies. 2010 was the year when I thought Sneijder would win it but he was not even in top 3. Iniesta was superb but so was Sneijder. He won treble with Inter Milan and was joint top scorer and arguably best player in the world cup helping Netherlands reach final.
Again Dembele shows why he should be in the starting 11. The guy has lighting speed and very good at dribbling. We need his dribbling ability in our team. Valverde keeps playing the same players over and over with zero tactics implemented in the game. Dembele gives us a plan B which we need badly.
The problem is consistency. He has started with us before and has s**t games where he misplaces passes and doesn't make the right decisions. He has actually been a great impact player from the bench this season more than he has been a better starter. So I guess this "he should start" debate is not so black or white of a topic
+6
He, obviously, has some qualities and that's why we signed him in the first place, but before seeing him in starting line-up he needs to change his attitude and takes this team and life in Barcelona more seriously. Hope he grows up soon and gets what he deserves.
He played well today though. Let's hope he's just maturing and will find the determination and professionalism our senior players have. He'll be world class then.
He's improving with every game but he will only do so if he starts every game. Wonder what Valverde will do once Suarez is back
I think his attitude is problematic, he looses the ball way too often and doesn't get pissed off when he looses it. Don't get me wrong ,he has tremendous talent and speed, but I think he lacks the competitive fire needed at this level.
Valverde is a huge liability. He never seems to learn from his mistakes
+1
How reliable "Football Leaks" is ?
What if Wenger would manage Barca ?!
Please no. No disrespect to the man but his Arsenal side stopped playing good football like 5 or 6 years ago. His team can't defend nor attack. He got destroyed by big teams in CL over and over again.
+1
I would actually pay to see that.
to be fair to Wenger, he didn't have financial backings due to the stadium development and the fact that his best players all left for a direct rival heavenly backfired and Arsenal competed for so long with the Top 4

+2
3 goals came from the left side where Roberto plays!
+4
S. Roberto is a la masia product and although he is liable in defense, he will never get criticized by cules. Same with Pique. 18 goals allowed in 12 games. But cules will easily criticize Dembele for wearing a toque and glasses watching a game from stands.
+2
We played so sloppily while Betis played their hearts out and courageously attacked when they had the chance. Bartra and Tello had great games for them and if we had to lose against a team in Spain, I'm glad it's against them.

GG Betis, but I hope we pick it up and play more organised next games.
they deserved the victory.... we were awful.
Setien is the coach we should have got instead of freaking Valverde. Last year he played the same players all the time and that got him results in the league. This year , we have a much better squad and due to injuries, he is forced to rotate and look at the result of that.
+1
did you guys see the FK of my boy vs juventus or not? LOL, always wished barca would have signed him few years earlier
