I'm kind of glad their domination is coming or has come to an end. The decision process at the club is an absolute joke. What kind of club would hire a manager who goes by the name of TATA.

I loved them under frank. Watching Ronaldinho and an emerging Messi was an absolute joy. Ronaldinho was a rock star who shined like a god for quite a brief moment. For 3 or 4 years Ronaldinho did the impossible in a Barcelona shirt, a true magician, while there are better and more effective players than Ronaldinho, there isn't a single player in the history of the game who can touch his brief explosive magic.

I still quite liked them under pep, but was disgusted by the treatment of Zlatan. I thought Zlatan was a genius signing, that would finally transform Barca into a side with a plan A and plan B. The team could have been built around Zlatan and Messi successfully, fast forward to today and you've got a side struggling with an identity crisis, dodgy transactions, tax fraud, and various other failings at all levels, what club gives 30 million to a players family? Its utterly incredible. Neymar is a good player but he's no where near the quality of Zlatan, he doesn't have any kind of presence in the team. Barca have failed to build a team around Messi and Neymar.

Messi also looks bored and uninterested. His influence is less, and he runs less, yet he still might outscore Ronaldo this season.

I hope athletico Madrid win the league and champions league this season.

It will be interesting to see who their next manager is.

I feel Barcelona and Manchester United will both compete to sign the same manager next season.

I mostly agree to you, but there are lots of other factors: Messi didn't like Ibra, Messi's been vomiting on the games lately. Also, they're not that bad tbh. They might end the season without trophies, but close enough in all competitions and with joke defenders. They can sign this summer, so they better solve that. If they don't go mad and they keep the good things, there's no need for an end of cycle but a redesign.

Obviously they are very hateable, specially for non sporting reasons, but I'll never see again a team like they were on their peak with Pep.

Also, I quite dig Tata. He seems like a calmed man feeding doves at the park.

Plus Neymar has some kind of magic too and he seems more clever than I thought. His signing might be wrong for a thousand reasons but he will be the best in a few years.

He blows hot and cold barny

He has good stats for a first season

But he hasn't really done it yet has he ? He hasnt captured anyone's imagination, he might be the best in a few years but I think he'll turn out to be another robinho.

I used to think that, using Robinho as the same example, but I really believe he has that extra thing to really make it. Time will tell and it doesn't change all the shit with his signing though.

Did anyone just see this?! :D :D



On a serious note, Sky are fucking pricks for completely ignoring it, not one word was said in the commentary. Let's just pretend racism doesn't happen and you can continue to televise every game in the world, you twats.

Alves is a cunt 99% of the time, but there he taught a good lesson to the racist idiot who threw that.

Tata means grandfather of daddy in the spanish speaking world AXL rose

I think it's similar in Argentina but in Mexico, everybody has a nickname to accentuate a personality trait or to point out a character or physical flaw and if you don't then it means you've got no friends and should kill yourself.
