Barça B have had a disastrous start to their Segunda Division campaign, having only collected 4 points out a possible 18. The Catalan youngsters are in 19th position and, if the season stopped now, they'd be relegated. Not good at all!
The main reason for this poor start is past key players are now unavailable. Fontas and Thiago joined the first team, Oriol Romeu left to Chelsea, Nolito to Benfica and Jonathan Soriano is injured. None of these footballers have been replaced with players of the same quality.
Yes, players like Deulofeu and Rafinha are coming through nicely, but what caused Barça B's success last year was the balance between new talent and experience - That balance just doesn't seem right at the moment.
Plus, as you all know, Luis Enrique is now in charge of Roma, leaving Eusebio with quite a challenging task.
HAVING A COMPETITIVE 'B' TEAM IS CRUCIAL, WE NEED TO TURN THINGS AROUND!!!
