    Don't agree that the same people would be moaning.
    I think you are doing them an injustice about saying it was all about sporting reasons.

    Would bet they knew exactly the political climate and what playing the game meant. They would have weighed up sporting reasons vs what is going on off the pitch otherwise there is no discusssion.

    People would be moaning it would all be about falling into the trap that league wanted to drop points. It had started when game was even being mentioned as being off.

    It was a tough decision with a lot of grey areas that it seems many voices were heard from players to board and they went with playing it.

    There would have been people unhappy no matter what the decision was.

    Would think everyone involved had clubs best interest at heart and not wanting to play or wanting to play behind closed doors doesnt mean anything much either way about those involved.

    I got a feeling that Viallarubi is going to force Barto to resign and take his position. I think he was one of the power players in current Barca board and he wanted to push out Barto earlier this year. If he decides to get into action I bet he is going to be very successful.

    Curious as to how you think this is going to happen? If most media sources are correct, there will be a press conference this afternoon with the board announcing the resignation of Villarubi and some other members.

    Why you think it is impossible? He can force Barto out using his influence on the board and start the election process. I think as a candidate he will be way ahead of Laporta or Beneditto. (by the way I'm not saying he will be better president, he has better chances to get elected). Don't forget Rosell resign before he got elected.

    I thought the board made the right decision and I am no fan of Barthomeu and co.

    6 points is too much to give away. We might as well have exited la Liga and petioned UEFA to play in another league. The players put in alot of effort and they shouldn't have to suffer because of external circumstances. FC Barcelona is a football club first and foremost, the politics comes second. I am sick and tired of people hijacking the club to further their own political agendas.

    If this continues we will have trouble attracting players. Not everyone is interested in Catalan politics.

    Looks like Raul Sanllehi has resigned. Been at the club for 15 years.

    Bartomeu hiring people so far proved to be a disaster.

    We had people who chased Di Maria as madmen on deadlineday, after chasing Verratti half the summer. I can't see how a change in personal can make things worse, tbh.

    I think it has to do with the sporting department restructuring. But I'm not totally sure myself.

    According to Sport it was Sanllehi's personal decision. He apparently was very disappointed with Neymar and this could also lead to his decision. On the other hand MD is mentioning that he was named as director of UEFA Club Competitions SA a month ago so this could also be one of the reasons he's leaving.
