Hello! My name is Tre'. I'm an American fan of FC Barcelona. I have my reasons and I couldn't care less if you think I'm a bandwagoner. I'm negative, but make no mistake, I'm a fan of FC Barcelona. Probably a bigger fan than you are. If you want to talk about anything football I'm open for discussion, but I don't censor my opinions.
Jesus f*cking Christ, we suck ass right now. Big changes are needed at FCB...
Every Cule should read this article. It is excellent and shows just what is wrong with this board, this manager, and this team.
Here is an exerpt from the article. It's definitely worth the read.
"So when Martino is forced into making changes, weird things seem to happen. Injuries have left the team with a dearth of center-backs; the natural response would have been to call up a defender from Barcelona B. Instead, Martino traveled to Granada with only a single center-back in the entire squad, Javier Mascherano. Beyond its implications on the game itself, think of the impact this decision has on Sergi Gomez, Edgar Ie, or Macky Frank Bagnack. They train and play for Barça B fighting for a chance at the first-team, waiting for an opportunity – and when just such an opportunity comes along, they’re ignored in favor of woefully out-of-position first-teamers. While Josep Bartomeu and company preach the importance of La Masia to FIFA, Tata Martino ignored the youngsters in a way neither Pep nor Tito Vilanova would ever have dreamed of."
He looks pretty good. Very confident finishing and some nice tricks. Right now, he's upgrade over Pedro. I think he deserves a fair shot to start right now.
Do you think Kroos would fit in Barca ?
He was the epitome of tiki-taka style at Bayern..
Also BTW do think Tata could be good for Man Utd?
It's actually terrible, sometimes I just feeling like crying. No champions league, a mediocre manager, a dysfunctional team in which everyone seems to wants leave.
It just shows how good SAF was.
i agree this comment system is just bad
where have you been ahahahhaa
Terrible again from the team. I don't know what to expect anymore. I'll just sit and wait and see how the next seasons play out, and probably find myself waiting for 2016 when we can correct this mess. All I really have to look forward to now is the ban getting sorted and Gerard and Rafinha coming back.
I agree Tre. Right now I'm reading comments from fake Cules who want to sell Messi for Suarez and Agüero. No thanks, swapping possibly the greatest player ever for a racist basket case and glass man is not a good deal. He's basically the scapegoat - we've been the Lionel Messi Show for 2 seasons now, he's been making up for all the team's deficiencies and people expect him to keep doing it. I blame him partly for being lazy and not fighting harder, but I also blame the other forwards for not stepping up when needed. The midfield, well we're stuck with backpasses and possession for the sake of it.
We desperately need Rafinha and Deulofeu to inject some energy and hunger into this team. The defense is a joke and has been for years. I agree that only a few key changes are needed, but I disagree about Tata. I understand that he has not met all the expectations, but considering the shitty situation he has had to contend with - board issues, Rosell resigning, having no transfer budget because of Neymar's obscene transfer fee, flopping players, Messi's injuries, etc I don't want him gone. He needs to step up though, one day he is outsmarting Ancelotti and the next he reminds of Tito. I hope he can make the improvements next season though, I know this stupid ban will be either reduced and delayed or just outright revoked.
I'm not expecting much this or next season though, it's a transition time and I'd be glad for just 1 cup a season. I don't care if we don't even win one, the only thing I won't accept is if we lose without trying. I want to see players running and actually trying to score, if we lose fighting I can forgive that. But I won't accept players walking and casually passing the ball waiting for Messi to do something.
Kill me now. Unless this ban gets lifted, Tata and the rest of us will have to suffer through another season with a squad of lazy underperformers. We desperately need some new blood in this squad, from the academy or outside I don't even care anymore, but changes have to be made.
Also how do you think Barca will react to this assuming that the ban is upheld? Do you think the Barca B players are up to scratch to take up the mantle and do you think the transfers of Ter Stegen and wonderkid Alen Halilovic?
