Thinking about the older players Pep is facing a real conundrum. After Kompany left the club we need leaders off and on the pitch. So, we need the legends that Dave and Kun are. But the legends can't run as much as it is needed, especially when we need to be fantastic in our high-pressing in order to help our make-shift defence cope with threats. So, Pep needs both leaders and fresh legs. He can't risk pissing off the legends by making them bit part players, as this might ruin the atmosphere at the club. But he can't play them without undermining the defence. Kun has scored 8 goals but he was poor in all games in which we dropped points and even in the 8:0 trashing of Watford. The problem he made when he got substituted against Spurs shows what Pep is against: aging legends with huge ego who can't perform as well as they used to but are desperate to play and start games on a regular basis. Kun is still a top goalscorer but he offers very little outside the box and the less is said about his ability to press the better. Gabby had a good game against Everton and had to watch from the bench two insipid performances in attack against Zagreb and Wolves. It would be really bad if we lose both Leroy and Gabby. We'll need 200m and luck to replace them well.
