Hi! Just read your discussion with this thug Xabernas or what's his name - from september 2012. About "Real Madrid drama from a Barca fan perspective". God, he IS a jerk! Too bad I didn't read BR that much those days and couldn't support you. It's really sad about Barcelona and UCL but I wonder what all those bandwagon fans will say now..... That Barcelona is still better than RM and Morinho-Ronaldo-Ramos-Özil are all drama queens?
Yeah, I do understand what you said. Well, some of these people think it's as easy as doing transactions on FIFA. The reality is that they need to invest on a couple of players for sure, but I suppose it would be hypocritical is they go beyond that and suddenly follow the Galaticos model, or the PSG/City/Chelsea example. But they do need to reinforce the academy core (Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Pique, etc., help for Messi in attack) because it is decaying. Barcelona has failed to do that in the last two years, which is now why this downfall becomes greater than it should have been. The fact is, Barcelona can't suddenly throw away everyone who has failed. I would be very shocked if they do that. That means that people like Pedro, Fabregas, and Pique are huge disappointments that will stay because they have earned it and are part of the family. Also, I imagine that Barca will be loyal to Xavi and Puyol, even if they cannot longer play at their previous high levels and even if it costs them money and possibly titles.
