ESPN FC’s Alejandro Moreno, Craig Burley and Shaka Hislop break down what went wrong for two-time reigning La Liga champion Barcelona in its season-opening loss at Athletic Bilbao. Lionel Messi did not play, and Luis Suarez was injured in the first half, but Hislop says Barca should have been able to win without two of their iconic stars. Plus, the panel examines the challenges facing Ernesto Valverde to put every player, especially newcomers Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong, in positions to be successful on the pitch.

Trust me valverde will be gone by the end of the season. Also it is only the first game. Give them some time ,Rafinha was electric in his first game.wait until they all adapt and Barca played five preseason games and arsenal played eight

Valverde out please. This barca was so boring. De jong was great in such a lackluster barca. Dembele was trash, griezmann was barely given the ball and then valverde has the nerve to say he needs to get more involved. FOH why would you put him down left wing just to force that 4-3-3. It wasn't working the first half, why the hell would it work in the second. On top of that you let Coutinho and malcolm leave and now we have less offensive options. Fucking idiot

The disrespect is real. I imagine most of these pundits don’t even watch La Liga on a regular basis. Athletic Club is always a tough away game and a difficult place to get a result in for any club be it Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atlético or Granada. Real Sociedad and Celta are also two other tough away days for Barcelona. In fact I don’t think Barcelona have won in Anoeta since they came back to the first division in 2015.

It doesn’t matter if Messi is there or not. Barca have no philosophy under Valverde. Roberto and Semedo on the same side never works.Dejong should not be stuck on defensive mid. He should play left or right and then help busquets when he needs rest.

I had to agree finally that Valverde is the problem with this team. Yes , he strengthened the defence, but from there going up the pitch is only gave the ball to Messi and let see what happens. The team is brimming with quality and the end product don't reflect this.

I am a long time Barca fan, I always said Messi is the GOAT, no one in history has carried a team on his shoulders for 12 years only him, and this is why, he is out Barca is a mid table team, Valverde next s rubbish I have said that since day one, I don’t care what he wins, it’s Messi and Ter who brought trophies last season not the coach.

Dembele incredibly overrated... Cant pass or retain posession to save his life... But at the end of the day it comes down to the fact that Barca has a coach that simply put, is shit and does not deserve to be managing a club like this... How the fuck did one of thee biggest clubs in the world decide to go with a manager that wouldn't even get the job of a Burnley coach is beyond comprehension. Bartomeu needs to go and Valverde will follow suit. Look at how much a coach can effect a player in a good way and bad. Malcolm and Coutinho's decline is because of the pathetic fuck face Valverde

Too bad Messi promised his dying coach to stay in Barcelona forever. This team does not deserve him in their current form.
