On Easter and for his 2nd Birthday he got Barcelona ball and scarf. Now for kindergarten he got Barça kids shoes-bag. Even when nurse came to watch how we deal him I had "nursery log" in Barça notebook.

    While we walk around parks and watching game at home I test him with recognition of Barça crest. He knows even polo-crest that is blue/dark blue. Messi is like mam/dad.

    He only recognizes Croatia jersey like that. But he only can say Lakitić from all croatian players... (no R yet, he'll learn).
    I must get him small Barça kit ASAP. I didn't want to buy that stupid horizontal striped from last season.

    I think when it comes to all these historic European clubs,you usually follow one of the teams that were in a good condition when you were a kid.For example,one of my earliest football memories is the 2006 final.It also helped that i visited Barcelona and the Camp Nou with my family in late 2005.So,the one thing brought the other and here i am
    The official Barcaforum 2016/17 MotM thread

    "At Barcelona, you’ll hear about this kid on the youth team. He wears number 10 like you. He’s small like you. He plays with the ball like you.[...]His name is Leo Messi.[...]I want you to give him one piece of advice.

    Tell him, “Play with happiness. Play free. Just play with the ball.”

    Even when you are gone, the free style will live on in Barcelona through Messi."

    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    I did similar but only because he kept asking for a Barcelona shirt, seeing me in them or watching matches, vldeos. He seems to think there are only two teams to root for, Barca & Le Nati (Suisse NT) - sometimes gearing up in a combo of the two kits
    Paolo Maldini - "In my opinion, Messi should win the Ballon D'Or each year. He's an unbelievable player."

    HEHE. Yes, indeed.
    There is no bigger "spectacle" than a YEAR OLD KID watching UCL finals with a crowd and yellin AAAAAAAAAAARGGGHHHHHHH when Rakitić scored a goal. Even my wife was proud (nothing about "hooligans" and simmilar crap...)

    Exactly my point. As said, I would buy him kit but that last season is so horrible to me...


    EDIT:
    This is must have for a school kid.
    For pens and pencils

    My father has a soft spot for Barca and loves the Celtic just like me.
    Got my first Barca strip in Can Pastilla in 1987. (first Celtic 83)
    I remember Real falling to pieces against Tenerife in 92 and 93
    Djukic missing a pen for Depor in 94 and getting up every Sunday morning to record Barca highlights from Trans World Sport
    I wish we'd won tonight,. I know that we (Celtic) are going to get punished
    Mon the hoops anyway

    “If you can go and play at a full Celtic Park on Champions League night then you can play anywhere. The fans create a crazy atmosphere like nothing I have ever heard. “I do hope in the future we can draw Celtic again because even though we lost it is one of the best stadiums to play football in the world".

    In answer to the thread title...
    I have been very fond of the club for a number of years, but it’s only really in the past couple of years that I would say I have considered myself a supporter.
    When I was younger, on a family holiday we did the Camp Nou tour and I remember being blown away by the stadium which was like no other football ground I had seen before. I can also remember being engrossed in watching the Champions League final against Arsenal in 2006 and wanting Barca to do it – and they did! And of course it was around that time and since that the club have been so dominant.
    But as I say it’s only the past couple of years that I’ve taken my interest in the club further. I’d been in Amsterdam for a few days and did the tour of the Amsterdam Arena and of course the history of Ajax with Cruyff and the style of play gripped me, and obviously there are many close links between Ajax/Dutch football and Barcelona. It was shortly after then that my girlfriend went to spend 13 months working in Barcelona. With many trips back and forth, I became more and more gripped by the whole culture of the club
