Heard of him last year, he's a defensive midfielder/centre midfielder, supposed to have really developed this year in Barca B's squad (but you hear this all the time with young players so not sure how promising that might be). He plays quite a lot like Josh, picks up the ball, passes and moves and has good vision.

I'm a bit skeptical because being a Josh fan boy I don't like the idea of Josh having even more competition :biggrin: but having said that he may compliment Romeu quite well in the centre of midfield. However, I did hear that Tito has plans for him in Barca's first team next year if Keita leaves and that if he did come it would be included with a buy back deal for Romeu sometime in the future.

Why hasn't the B team system picked up over here? Seems like a great idea compared to the reserves, mean the youngens face real competition. Don't have to be loaning them out hoping they get game time..

Never heard of this roberto lad, seems Barca want his contract to have another buy back clause, like Romeu's. I like how we are investing in youth, but there's no need to go over the top with things, lets the ones you have, have a chance at getting through, before putting more barriers in their way.

They don't use the B team system here because it is seen as reducing the importance and stature of the lower leagues. Over here they mean a lot more to the fans and clubs further down have stronger support than in other countries. It has been discussed, but it will never be accepted by the Football League.
