      Hmm, is it just me or did it look like he miskicked that and he was actually trying to pass it to Messi?

      Not easy to tell if he was aiming towards goal or if he was actually trying to play it across for someone else. But, not that they will care, goals a goal and I doubt it will be his last for them.

      He is not going to make it there though, it's nonsense to think he can satisfy the amount of goals Neymar was netting. He isn't a good option to play deeper because of his lack of defensive skills. I just don't see where he fits long term once they get griezmann.
      Coutinho is getting slated over at the Nou Camp. Fans are saying despite that goal he keeps giving the ball away.
      I am not sure who Barcelona can sell to raise funds for Griezmann since most players are ageing.

      Happy to see Coutinho having a stinker of a game and getting subbed off after an hour

      Didn't start vs. Eibar, but came on and replaced Iniesta on 65".
      Haven't been paying very close attention, but seems to be having a slow start at Barca.
      Guess can take time to settle, not everyone can have a Salah type start :)

      Yep. He'll be a key player eventually, most likely next season.

      Coutinho can't even play against Chelsea in CL, so a it is surprising, he has not performed well so far though.

      Wouldn't count on it, I just don't know how he fits. He doesn't score enough going forward to earn a spot in the front 3, he does not have the same defensive attributes as Iniesta. He just has the passing of Iniesta and some goal scoring attributes, personally I think he needs something extra to solidify a place. I actually think he would be behind our front 3 in the pecking order and I never rated Coutinho in a deeper role.

      Not really playing with a front 3 under valverde at the moment,  it is more 442

      Only if we apply for one for him

      Which I hope we wouldn’t, as he refused to play the qualifier he shouldn’t be entitled

      I’d also hope he wouldn’t  want one as he abandoned the campaign

      Agree.

      Once you leave a club it should automatically rule you out of any medals won.

      He's getting settled. Wouldn't call him a rotation player just yet.

      Fair point, but the way I see it, when you pay £140mill for a player, there should be no settling in period.
