first_imgCarles Pérez 68 ‘ 90 ‘net Ter Stegen 540 minutes A quick review of the numbers of the players with Setién allows us to establish some conclusions. The first is that, in addition to Messi, there is an untouchable for the Cantabrian. Busquets, one of the players hurt with Valverde for that substitution in the first League match in San Mamés, has gained weight. The tweaks that the Cantabrian has established in the game plan benefit him and he knows that he has all the confidence of his new coach.One of those who has won the site is Lenglet. Sethien opted for Umtiti in his first game, as if he wanted one of his first decisions to bet on the world champion ahead of the former Sevilla player. Lenglet has eaten Umtiti and is already untouchable, more after the card festival and some physical problem of Piqué. Semedo He has also won points but not to the detriment of Sergi Roberto, which is still a good wild card. Another revolution has been Ansu Fati, who had lost prominence in the last matches with Valverde and to which Setién has believed himself, among other things, almost by obligation. Without Luis Suarez, Dembélé or Carles Pérez, there are no more strikers. So much that he begins to alternate with Griezmann on the team for Setien’s fear of running out of one more point.Next to Busquets, From Jong He is the most used midfielder. Rakitic and Vidal alternate ownership and substitutions according to the characteristics of the rival and Arthur, which is not at a good physical level, has barely become a resource to close games with ball possession. In Bilbao and the Villamarín It was in a better tone. The last novelty that Setién has implemented is that of Alba as revulsive. The side is a regular starter, but in Ibiza and Seville, his fresh out of legs had an impact on the game and is also a way to protect him so he doesn’t have to play so many minutes.Setién is not yet loved or hated by the fans of Barça. It is simply analyzed. He announced that he can only promise his teams that they will play well and, for now, that has not been achieved with continuity. The results are not for rocket fire either. Five victories (Granada, Ibiza, Leganés, Levante, Sevilla) and two defeats (Valencia and Bilbao) that meant the loss of the leadership in LaLiga and goodbye to the Cup. The Villamarín has allowed him to prevent his qualification in the first month from being suspended. And it has opened a door to the hope of recovery. We will see how the north wind blows for the Cantabrian from now on.Thus he has distributed the minutes Setién Messi 540 ‘ Alba 488 ‘ Umtiti 280 ‘ Sergi Roberto 470 ‘ Piqué 350 ‘ Rakitic 347 ‘ Busquets 540 ‘ Riqui Puig 93 ‘ Arthur 166 ‘center_img Junior 174 ‘ 5 ‘pass Quique Setién celebrates a month as coach of Barça this Thursday. The north wind moves him, he has already advanced on arrival. But maybe I didn’t expect so many convulsions, so fast, on the trip. So far, Setién has not complied. Your team has already been removed from the Copa del Rey and has lost the lead in The league which he inherited from Ernesto Valverde. However, the Cantabrian saved a match-ball on Sunday in the Villamarín and showed that, like his players, he knows how to stand up and is alive. It can be said, in fact, that Setien lives his first quiet days this week since he arrived in Barcelona. A week of field and offices, because the signing of the nine is dispatched after the operation of Ousmane Dembélé. But with less wobbles. Vidal 243 ‘ On January 13, it was learned that Quique Setién would coach Barça and, a day later, he was introduced. He announced to the four winds his love for Cruyffism. His debut was already controversial. Barça won a Pomegranate with ten by 1-0. A sector of critics celebrated the return to style. And certainly, Barça broke the record for possession of a LaLiga match this course (82.5 percent), but of the 1,005 passes it took, only 203 (20.2 percent) went forward. From the premiere, Barça jumped to Ibiza in the middle of the storm Gloria. There, he saved what might have been a historical ridicule. After losing 1-0 and not throwing in 70 minutes, Griezmann He saved the ballot. That night, between Net (29), Lenglet (114), Sergi Roberto (105) and Junior (82) gave 330 of the 718 passes of a team, 46 percent. The debate was more, and Barça, despite a good second, crashed in Mestalla.Something had to be done and Setien made an intelligent decision. He moved the system and returned to Valverde 4-3-3, in which the players had more automated machining. From those concepts already learned it would be easier to give a personal touch. Barça improved. Ransacked the Leganés in the Cup and played a good first half against Levante. But progress was not enough in Bilbao. Despite deserving more, he fell 1-0. Setien’s speech proved too self-complacent for the demand of a great. “I am satisfied”, he said after losing at the last minute the opportunity to approach a title from which that afternoon he had picked up the Madrid, his eternal rival.As if Setién didn’t have enough to try to pack a weakened team since Cornellá’s night, when Valverde’s figure began to be questioned, the club has filled up with fires in the market. The decision to send to Rome to Carles Pérez Before knowing if Dembélé was able or not to return, it was completely strange. He also admitted the error days later. Injuries Suarez and Dembélé have still unsolved the question of nine. But in the worst that happened in this month of Setién, the Cantabrian had absolutely nothing to do. Abidal slipped a criticism of bad taste to Valverde and dropped that some players complained about working little and not being comfortable with the Txingurri. Messi came out as a steamroller to bust the Frenchman on Instagram and the fire, For a moment, it seemed that it would get out of hand and affect all levels of the entity. Bilbao’s post-match was well controlled from within. Aware that everyone was in the eye of the hurricane, from players to managers through the coach, the speech was one of unity. That “We already have enough with the shit that they throw us from outside to throw us more on us” It worked as a general anesthetic. Barça calmed down and Setién closed his first full month as coach of Barça with a restorative victory in Heliopolis which allows him to continue in the race for LaLiga and look with some optimism the knockout stages of the Champions League. In this last game, in addition, Setién used his third system as such. From the first 3-5-2, or 3-1-4-2 as preferred, he went to 4-3-3 in the match against the Leganés and, in Heliopolis, he played with a 4-4-2 with Vidal at the apex of the rhombus of the center of the field and Messi Y Griezmann playing inside as strikers. Again, without extremes. From Jong 525 ‘ Semedo 450 ‘ Griezmann 532 ‘ 540 ‘tongue LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 11, 2020 Ansu 489 ‘last_img
