    Hello from London

    Hello all,

    Been lurking on the forum for a few months, decided at last to sign up...

    I'm a 35 year old Barca fan, have been since 1991. I was fortunate enough to be at Wembley in '92 to see the team lift their first European / CL title against Sampdoria. My heroes of the time were Stoichkov, Romario, and Koeman.

    The defeat the other night was painful to watch, but the club has been in these positions before. The worst for me was the 4-0 loss in the final against Milan. I had made bets with more or less everyone in my school year that the Barca dream team would destroy the Italians...

    Whatever happens next week the team will rest and improve over the summer, and hopefully get back some of the energy they seem to have lost.

    Cheers!

    Jimmy

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

    Hello, Jimmy. I am a fellow Londoner!

    It's nice to see some positive thinking

    What a privilege to see the first Wembley win!
