Griezmann hasn't settled in at all (doing a lot of running on the left but doesn't get the ball enough), Rakitic has been on the bench for most of the season and was very poor on the weekend in a rare start, Pique is nowhere near who he once was, Umtiti has struggled with an injury and has barely played, Vidal is on the bench most of the time and wants to leave if he doesn't start regularly and Alba has been out injured for some time now. De Jong is doing well (he has good and bad games) but is new to the team - he will take some time to find cohesion with his teammates and will end up playing in Busquets' position, who is also feeling his age. Dembele is out injured again and can't be relied upon for several reasons. Suarez has had his moments and ter Stegen has been superb at times. This weekend Barcelona won 0-1 away to Atleti, after several great saves from ter Stegen and a moment of brilliance from Messi. Typical.Griezmann was third in the ballon d'or last year, Suarez, Rakitic, De Jong, Pique, ter Stegen, Umtiti, Vidal, Busquets & Alba are all super players too.
My god I have never seen a bunch of players regress so much within a a couple of weeks. Anyone would think the Barcelona squad is full if Sunday league players and Messithe way people have talked this week.

Barcelona has been relatively poor or average for the whole season already. Their away form has been the poorest in 2 decades and yes, they're hard to watch currently if you take into account how many talented players are out there, but it looks like they don't have a system and heavily rely on scoring from set pieces, which is why many want Valverde to get the sack rather than let him finish his contract at the end of the season.
