Fan Voice: Our users decide between Firpo and Alaba
Barcelona are in dire need of a left-back. Jordi Alba played without a replacement last season and it ended up costing the club dearly.
- Firpo 52%
Chris Garcia: "If we're looking for a long term replacement we should get Firpo. You all complain about how our team is old as f*ck and you want a 27-year-old over a 22-year-old. F*cking unbelievable"
Phil Pinalo: "Firpo is young and very talented. How would you compare any old guy to the fresh blood? Really."
Varun Singhvi: "Firpo 100%. Why? He's younger and therefore has more potential. Alaba is 27, more expensive, and it is likely Dembele would have to go the other way if we wanted Alaba."
Leonidas Oriarewo: "Firpo Junior is a better option to replace Alba. He's still young and already a La Liga player."
Firpo's 2018-19 season:
29 games3 goals5 assists
- Alaba 48%
Obaze Samuel: "There are times the game becomes tougher when ticki taka won't really work. We need a player who can shoot from a long distance so I believe Alaba is the right choice."
Nurudeen Yahya: "Alaba is tried, tested and proven. He is more versatile and attack-minded. David Alaba is a big game player. For next season treble, get Alaba."
Shevyguy Lawal: "WE NEED CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WHIS SEASON, BUY ALABA AND LOAN MIRANDA. AFTER 2 OR 3 SEASON BRING THE GUY BACK."
Alaba's 2018-19 season:44 games3 goals3 assists
- Surprise choice
Emmanuel Yawson: "Neymar"
Although we at Tribuna.com don't doubt the Brazilian's quality, is he really the best choice for the left-back position?
