Barca’s 20-year-old squad resisted crisis due to COVID-19

Barca is having a series of young players ready to create a 20-year-old squad when they need to deal with the crisis caused by COVID-19.

Barca, like many other clubs, will face the risk of falling into recession due to the negative impact of the pandemic caused by COVID-19.

In addition to the first team, Barca has young talents spread across Europe to reevaluate or continue to grow. With this team, they can reduce the amount of money they spend on the next purchase.

Specifically, Barca can set up a squad with an average age of less than 21 (20.73), excluding Philippe Coutinho or Marc Cucurella, who Getafe is ready to buy 60% of ownership in next summer.

In goal, Inaki Pena is currently the third goalkeeper of the first team, playing an important role in the youth team and U21 team.

Of the defenders, Ronald Araujo is most likely to be promoted to the team next season. Along with that were two loaners at Schalke including center-back Todibo and left-back Juan Miranda.

Also on loan is Alena at Betis, who is ready to return after accumulating valuable experience. Similarly, Oriol Busquets made the most of their time at Twente in the Netherlands.

Two of the midfielders preferred by both Setien and Valverde, Riqui Puig and Collado, are playing in the youth team. Nor do not miss Monchu – the captain of Barca B.

With Collado, he can play as a winger, just like Rafinha – who is on loan at Celta and also works in the virtual No. 9 role.

On the other hand, Barca signed with two promising young talents after the race with other big clubs in Europe.

The first to arrive was attacking midfielder Pedri Gonzalez from Las Palmas with 5 million euros and bonuses. The second is striker Francisco Trincao for 31 million from Braga in January.

Premier League has been postponed until May (Part 2)

Like the UEFA meeting on 17/3, the meeting of the Premier League is mainly oriented, instead of giving a specific plan because of waiting for the development of Covid-19. However, the opinion of the majority of teams is to expect the season to complete all 38 rounds.

The fact that all sides committed to make the Premier League take all 38 rounds is considered a victory for football in the foggy country. As can be seen, the happiest teams are Liverpool, Leeds Utd and West Brom. Anfield owner is almost certain to be thirsty for the title of England champion lasting 30 years, while the two First Division teams have the opportunity to return to the Premier League.

The positive points

There are many positive points, but the prolongation of the tournaments causes many clubs to be seriously affected on the schedule. The two Manchester teams will have to reschedule the most because they are in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup and have many chances to go far in the two European cups.

Two days after the Euro final was postponed to the summer of 2021, the FA, the Premier League Organizing Committee, the First Division, representatives of the clubs and the PFA met to finish the season in June, in line with UEFA. The purpose of the meeting is to find the least costly option for the parties.

Arsenal boss was positive for Covid-19

Earlier, on March 13, the day after Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was positive for Covid-19, the Premier League organizers postponed a round and stopped the tournament until early April. According to The Times, tournaments in the UK are likely to be delayed until the end of April because the government has not controlled Covid-19.

In the UK, the number of patients with Covid-19 is still on the rise. By March 18, more than 2,500 people had the disease. The possibility of canceling the tournament is still left open, although this is a scenario that the team is keeping the top of the Liverpool table and the top 6 First Class clubs do not want.

Premier League has been postponed until May (Part 1)

Premier League football tournament will return and play all 38 rounds, according to the results of the afternoon meeting 19/3.

Under the rules of the Premier League, the season cannot end after June 1. But because of Covid-19, the English football leader and the clubs broke the rules: there was no limit to the end of all leagues in the foggy country.

The decision of the FA and the Premier League Organizing Committee was previously backed by UEFA, when the agency delayed the Euro finals to the summer of 2021. In return, the players may have to play with very thick density, counting from the start of the tournament to the end of the summer of 2020.

Currently the Premier League has just reached round 29, and nine more rounds have just closed the curtain. Apart from this tournament, the lower divisions, the FA Cup, and the women’s soccer league are also not completed.

Each of the 20 Premier League clubs, in turn, spoke in two parts: proposing their aspirations at the end of the season, and the difficulties encountered in three situations: keeping the score sheet, canceling the season, and end the season late

At 17:30, in the middle of the session, Sky Sports said, the Premier League Organizing Committee reminded representatives of 20 clubs about the commitment to UEFA, that the 2019-2020 season is completed in June. Former First-Class CEO Shaun Harvey said that this could cause the 2020-2021 season to kick off later than usual – be it in late August or early September.

The reason is that the tournament needs to complete nine rounds in the most 11 weeks, not to mention the time for three FA Cup rounds (quarterfinals, semi-finals, finals) is too urgent. Man City may suffer the most, as they have to attend two domestic leagues and have the ability to progress deep in the Champions League.
