Right now, the FC Barcelona crop are considered the best team in the world and one of the best of all time. The Camp Nou is treated to a spectacle every week, with world class players routinely dismantling their opposition.
But it hasn't always been like that. At the beginning of the decade, Barcelona were in great crisis, even finishing sixth in the 2003 La Liga, and some really woeful footballers donned the Blaugrana jersey (mostly in the first half of the decade).
For any culé, this slideshow will evoke really dire memories, mostly of the Joan Gaspart era, but it will also help understand how lucky they are to have the current crop and how these successful times should be cherished.
