fontas and montoya were better than muniesa in this match

gai,jonathan, rochina too showed skills in patches

I can't decide. Didn't see much individual game-changing abilities that struck me ala Yaya last night. Still too early, they need more playing time together against high-quality teams. Bright spurt here and there like Gai ball movements but none critical moves so I'll pass, maybe next match.

Gai Was great for the first game with the first team, just a little nervous.
In the 2nd part of the game Rochina make some good moves.

We relly have great youth players !

gai?
he was not his best yesterday i think...muniesa was clearly best.

This says it all from the Guardian's story, quoting Redknapp:

Disappointing? Not for one member of the audience. The Tottenham Hotspur manager was blown away by the qualities in Barcelona's junior ranks. "I take so much out of that game, almost as much as any game I've been involved with," he said afterwards. Everyone sniggered. Surely he was being ironic, but no: "It is fantastic to see a football club built on those lines," he added. "The pressure they put you under makes it so difficult. All those young players were excellent and it is not just the passing but the work rate. It was an amazing football lesson. I wish our youth team had been here tonight."

I think Dos Santos was the best yesterday... He did not lose balls, he had good passes, I think that alongside Xavi or Iniesta and Yaya od DM he could be next youngster in the first team after Sergi... Gai showed some great skills, but he lost too many balls, and Rochina for me is a little bit too slow... Muniesa played also good match, he was very calm and I thing that he will be very good defender for few years...

I'm a Lebanese from the middle east we had a lot of battle with Israel and honestly I don't like their behave so much but yesterday Gai had shown the opposite he attracted me he switched on both side during the game ......................he is impressive.

shit i missed the first hald. was gai so good? rochina was great in the 2nd half. great skills. he did things i didn't except and that made me happy :)

jonathan dos santos played good. he is never losing the ball like xavi and iniesta. as one said above i think he can be promoted to the first team. he can get some playing time in the cup and in the last 15 min. he can learn a lot from xavi and iniesta. yesterday he reminded me of ronaldinho with his passing.

muniesa is a hard worker in the defense. he has everything to become a ruler/captain one day.

btw: tottenham played with the first 11. and barca played with 11 b-players. barca had more possession.

oh man, they are all great. i love that team. i think ibrahimovic is one of the last striker/winger barca will buy within the next 7 years. why? with keirrison, bojan, rochina, jeffren, pedro and gai we have the stars from tomorrow.

where's pedro's name in the poll ?
he impressed me most yesterday :)
but i voted for Marc Muniesa.

refter said...

Pedro is a first team player since last season. Like Victor Sanchez.

Jonathan Dos Santos!!!! I love that kid. I saw him for the first time yesterday. Just when I thought we'd have to resort to Fabregas to fill the boots of Xavi, I saw Jonathan. He has vision, close-control, excellent passing. Folks we have found a new playmaker folks. Iniesta's replacement in the future might be Thiago Alcantara.

Marc Muniesa was a close second for me. Wow that kid is to central defence as Xavi is to playmaking. His Calmness, prowess in the air and good forward runs make me calm about our future in defence.

Gai was also good although he lost balls. But you have to look beyond that. That kid is going to be the best ever Israeli footballer to walk th face of earth. I'd say he's the closest thing in our Youth system to Messi, although messi is of an extremely rare breed.

The future looks bright guys.

for me, except some good runs by montoya, some good dribblings by pedro and a superb one by toure yaya, some good technically tricks by rochina, some good back to forward moves by fontas, good scenes by keita and good defensive scenes by muniesa and the fact, that they just started season, showed many mistakes done in the game, but more than all, as said above, a very aggressive and good attitude by all, putting spurs on fully pressure.
only a draw, but for me, as the team also changed nearly fully for second halftime, a very good one, as everyone tried to show his best, especially as a team.
but to me, it showed also little weakness by some players, especially gudjohnsen, who seems sometimes to get lost in this technically strong and fast playing team, also by pinto, who seemed unable to give the defence the safety needed, not to forget caceres, who hold the ball often too long, to take out the speed of the game from behind, to play then false passes, after spurs close room or space.
but as said, it just begun.
missed the vote for 'the whole team', as the whole teamplay overweight the good individuality

barca nike said...

Muniesa was clearly the best of them all, he had the spirit of puyolfor fighting to get the ball from the opponents, Muniesa is my man.

tero said...

Gai had some good moves but it was clearly not his best playing,he can do a lot more...I voted montoya because he surprised me most,his runs were good and he has composure unlike Caceres

LeónDragón said...

agree somehow with above, as to me, muniesa seems, despite his early age, to be the most developed player of the youth.
as what i saw also at the spain-youth-team by him, he's very promising and looks at his young age very experianced and little mature by his tactical defensive play.
to call some others like pedro, espasandin, oriol, etc talents, is a little too much for them, as they got out of this age and came late up

Gai, Jonathan, Jeffren and Muniesa impressed me a lot.

Dale said...

Guys i was there and i have to say Muniesa was awesome. He made a few goalsaving tackles and even went on piquenbauer-like runs.
Gai was also very good some barca fans in the crowd actually thought he was messi. That says it all!
On the negative the majority of the barca fans there were quiet and hardly cheered. I still have a sore throat though.
