There are no Barca clones … No other team can play like Barca

Filed under: Uncategorized — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 8:59 pm

But there are things that other teams can take from Barcelona. 

And it isn’t you need to have a Xavi and a Messi.

Have a structure, and have a bunch of players who understand and can implement that structure. 

Barca does short passing and possession.  This is not the only way to play.  But whatever system you want to use.  Everybody has to understand it and implement it well.  The same defensively.  The Barcelona defence is a press.  Pressing isn’t the only way to defend.  But whatever defence you use, everybody has to understand it and implement it well.  The Barca vs Arsenal ties a couple of years back are an example.  Barca pressed.  Arsenal pressed … badly.
