    Fabian is brilliant. Really sad we didn't sign him.

    It happens. There are 6 Barça players in U19 squad. Plus Eric Garcia and Sergio Gomez.

    Germany have reason to feel cheated to be honest. Spain should have been down to ten men in the first half but the clowns in the VAR booth took no action.

    Nice match.
    Olmo scored a winner. Barça graduate... Dinamo player. Nice to watch
    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    Saw the match live only from 2nd half on. But looking at the replay now I agree that this should have been a definite straight red card. No idea why VAR did not intervene there.

    Sad indeed but not unexpected given the developments in recent years.

    In any case the win yesterday was another confirmation that you are bound to win if you have a long-term sporting project, the right manager and managerial team, a patient federation/board and a large talent pool. Once you taste success it becomes a habit hence why the same national teams (more or less, club teams included) tend to dominate again and again historically.

    Fabián Ruiz the MVP of the entire tournament IMO and deservedly so. Wanted us to buy him last summer and always rated him higher than the likes of Ceballos (he did very well again in his own right) or Lo Celso. Would have been ideal in a midfield composed of FDJ and Arthur IMO.

    Could very well see Pep going for him next summer when Silva needs to be replaced and provided that Pep will remain at City.

    Spain U19 reached the Euro U19 final by beating France U19 in a penalty shootout. They will play against Portugal U19 in the final.
    This team has 4 Barça players (Abel Ruiz, Jandro Orellana, Juan Miranda, Arnau Tenas) and 2 former Barça players (Sergio Gómez, Eric García) as starters and other 2 Barça kids (Alejandro Marqués, Álvaro Sanz) on the bench as well.
    Really proud of our players

    That's good to hear. We need more local kids coming through the system.

    Ferran Torres the main man. Impressed by the goalkeeper, thought he had some really clutch saves
