Just imagine a midfield of:

-----------Busquets
-----Modric--------Iniesta

Would be orgasmic. hmm

Wouldn't necessarily be better, but different and certainly joyous to watch. Modric is magical in a different way to Xavi. He's also got that x factor that both Busquets and Iniesta have, which is why imo the chemistry between the 3 would be great.

Busquets' ball-clearance success rate per season

Busquets, the brilliant mind - Page 3 Ctyvov3W8AElgKG



Worst season of his carrer so far. Absolutely awful and ridiculous.

Could he have peaked already? And now it's only downhill?

Or he might simply be ought of form. Benching him for some hames might be good for him.

When a player recovers the ball and it stays within their possesion or at least goes out of the play?

What I know is that he has been awful at disrupting the opponent's counters, been losing every possible challenge and if he got the ball and cleared it ended up at opponent's feet anyway.

one of these new stats people spend a lot of time to dig up to make players better than they are e.g. goalkeeper's passing success rate/goalkeeper dribbling strikers success rate or number of assists to the guy who assisted the goal or defenders with the most successful bicycle kick clearnaces

It can be "summer form", i.e. not coming back to club season at your sharpest, or it can be what I said about Fabregas earlier, just losing your best motivation because you've won so much and earned so much money that it becomes mentally difficult to maintain your best form. It's a myth that (most) footballers' ultimate motivation is trophies, really, it's money and the security of having plenty of it already.

Or it could just be that teams have keyed in on the fact that despite not being the best player on the team that if you disrupt Busquets and his role in the team it unsettles Barcelona in general. He plays a very important role and if he's getting more attention and focus the team becomes quickly disjointed.

If I were a team gameplanning for Barcelona my plan wouldn't start with Messi, it would start with Busquets.

Nah he just is in awful shape. Plays like he doesn't give a single crap. Uninspiring.

Its not that suddenly team have started to target him lol. He was god awful even against newly promoted teams.

I've not seen him this bad yet though so i'm worried.

And your team would lose. The only thing Busquets does offensively is pass it to someone in close vicinity. Shut down Busquets and another CM or a full-back will provide the ball to the same players Busquets would. Disrupting Busquets is in no way the answer to breaking down Barcelona for Busquets on the ball is not crucial to their game plan.

Busquets is absolutely crucial to their game plan, and you're severely underrating his impact on and off the ball (when in possession).

I think the only question that can be asked here is that whom you rate higher, Busquets or Henderson?

Watch him struggle, folks.

I thought Busquets was finished a couple of years ago, and then it turned out he wasn't.
Will be the same. Pretty sure once the CL latter stages arrive, they'll find their form.

Busquets strength is winning fouls, holding the ball well and making clever short passes. Now he plays like a brazilian party boy, acts for crowd, tries to get attention.just like modern iniesta who overdribbles in many situations lately. Desire is gone they try to enjoy the moment

While neither of them hold a candle to Andy Carroll I'm tempted to go with Henderson purely because he has better hair.

I don't see how he was mocking anyone? Everything he said was true. Well, the Carroll part, anyway. Personally I don't care much for hair. Unless it's long. And dark.

Rafinha, Gomes, Sergi, or Gomes might also have something to do with Busquets subpar performances, maybe. Barca tend to lose the ball alot more than they used to. At least, this season has shown that so far.

Or maybe it's Mascherano's decline/absence that has something to do with it.

One thing is certain Barca's mid and def are extremely shaky right now. Even Ter Stegen hasn't been able to fill Bravo's gloves.

There's is defo a difference from last season.

He is a family man now, got a little baby. Will take a while until football becomes a priority again in his life. His form has been shaky for a while now, especially for Spain.

Nah Messis first son was born in June 2012 and in 2012/2013 he had lots of problems with injuries yet still singe handedly won Barca the leauge. Had to play with Pedro and Alexis on the wings (+with suffering Tito as coach) and still had an insane season.

Thus, I dunno how becoming a father makes Busquets play like absolute crap. I don't see any connection. I think the issue lies elsewhere.
