hes ok, but thats it. better bojan or pedro or even jeffren to be honest. for 5-7 million, not a horrible signing, but not a really good one either.

mike said...

riera is really not good enough.

he has a good shoot. but thats all...

groga said...

Not good enough, certainly if we will have to pay a serious fee. Next!

I don't understand why we are not interested in Dembele? He can play anywhere up front. Do any of you Dutch guys understand this?

fcbee said...

Dembele has to raise his scoring. And it's not because your good in the Dutch league... You can't predict those things. I'm sure they've watched him already and for the 20 millions AZ is asking, they think it's not worth the money.

riera used to play for espnayol, i doubt he'd come to barca out of respect to his old club. but if he comes i dont know if hell fit or be another flop like hleb. hleb could not adapt to the 4-3-3 as at arsenal he plays 4-4-2.riera plays 4-4-2 at livpool.

for 7 mill or 8 maximum : hell yes !!
for more : HELL NOOO
mata is younger and better ( but also more expensive)
but to be honest guys riera is better than jeffren...
and thats my opinion :D

But surely, even if AZ asks 100 million, there is something called negotiations, and he will never leave for the amount they ask. The asking price is just a negotiation tactic. I'm sure we could get Dembele for 13-15m euros if we negotiate properly.

no no no riera isnt good enough.i wish we were after suarez ,even in the dutch league 5 goals in 2 games is no easy deal...

Oh God! NO!! Riera has got no pace, no technique, no composure nothing... All he got is that explosive shot of his, which even our Rueda & JDS got. I would rather play JDS than Riera, at least the dude's cool

Our priority is a goddamn CM!!! We have Henry, Jeffren, Pedro, Bojan and Iniesta who can play as LW. Get Veloso, he is believed to be around 15mil. Freekick and longshot specialist and can play as CM and DM.

Okay, it's time for a PJ... We don't need a God DAMNED CM, we need a very good CM to rotate with Xavi & Iniesta :P

Veloso sucks. Watched him play in the Portuguese league. He is far from Barca material. Busquets is much better.

barca4life said...

Veloso is cup tied in any case. Played for sporting in the CL already

they should buy arda turan .. hes a great left winger and not so expensive

Anonymous said...

Why not try to sign Babel instead. I predict him a great future and also get Agger while you are at it

Anonymous said...

yeah! finally!! vote for Arda +1 :)

André said...

Why don´t we go for Martin Petrov? No playing time at City, and he won´t cost much!!
Any opinion?

SJP said...

i agree with above if we are going to take a liverpool player get babel, he's young, strong, good technique and is wasted in the preimership. petrov is too injury prone.

mindfreak_bg said...

Guys,I'm bulgarian and I would say that we should really go for Martin Petrov.He is not only cheaper than other mentioned left wingers but he is has speed and great level of commitment.He will give our attack an other dimension as we don't have a typical winger providing good crossings to Ibrahimovic from the left(he is like a much more offensive version of dani alves on the left flank). In addition he is very passionate in every game he plays and he has agood character.Besides he has an experience in la liga playing in Atletico Madrid(despite missing long time due to injury).I have to admit he is really a bit injury-prone,but I believe that with pep's amazing way of physical training from last season and a proper rotation he won't get major injuries and he will be a great signing helping us win all the trophies in the long and tough incoming season.

It seems that various members of Liverpool FC travelled to Bilbao last night to witness the Spanish SuperCup game between Athletic & FC Barcelona. That was to scout Fernando Amorebieta.

Now Rafa Benitez scouts a LOT of players from Spain, exploits a LOT of Spanish talent... examples---> Fernando Torres, Arbeloa, Riera(not so great but not mediocre as well, plays for Spain!), etc. And we instead scout NO-BODY's. Not saying Chyhrynskiy is a mediocre player, but come on, you can't be sure he would be success with us. Recent examples of our bad scouting---> Caceras, Hleb, Henrique, etc. None of them are actually bad, but none could also not get accustomed to our style.
There's some thing wrong with our scouting system itself :(

would prefer names added to our squad and not to a list, as this list could fill more books, as there are trees that spend the paper.
a lw is a must, cm would be good too.
time is running out, txiki

Bojanibra said...

whao LEODRAGFON,u;re funny.do u think this name is added to the list?its all rumours.reira is clearlly not our own material,we can see all he knows our to play is the english football partern and we can see what he is playing for the spanish bational team.
danm fool.l

LeónDragón said...

damn fool.l ('l' like leóndragón?)
watch your mouth, clown.
don't give any bout riera, read between the lines, if your brain allows it.
