FC Barcelona defeated Real Sociedad in their latest encounter at Camp Nou. The victory for La Blaugrana was the first since the club defeated Malaga on January 22, 2012.

While the victory is great and I wish Barca luck in its future matches, there is still a long way to go. The rest of the season is not expected to be easy.

The 2011-2012 BBVA La Liga tables show FC Barcelona in second place behind Real Madrid with 48 points. Barca is expected to face Valencia in the next leg of the Copa Del Rey semifinals.

What should be done in order to win titles? La Blaugrana must continue its 4-3-3 tactics and must not rest on its laurels.

Barca should play from the beginning to the end in all of its matches. I say this although there are times when clubs, like people, have their days.

While Guardiola is the only one who can make the decision to stay or leave Barca, he must decide as soon as possible. The reason is that La Blaugrana needs to have less stress with a decision made by its manager.

I have faith in Barca and its ability to win, but the club has to win more and draw less. It remains to be seen what will transpire with the rest of the season for La Blaugrana.
