    All money spinners. Seems an awful lot of travelling for pointless matches to me.

    I'm really interested in seeing what Valverde's approach will be this season in terms of tactics, lineups etc.

    If it will be the same old shitty football relying on Messi Magic or if he'll actially attempt to be a bit more daring with his general approach.

    After two consecutive fuckups in CL, hopefully he has a change in perspective.

    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.

    Do we have any match with full XI players? When will the Copa America players join the team?

    They will get 3 weeks off. The final was last Sunday, so probably another 2 weeks until they're back.

    Some of the players are back today. Medical check ups under way.


    Ps. I hope Rakitic doesn't check Barca's twitter account. 90% of the comments is just people cussing him out.

    I'd like him sold too but that's a bit harsh imo.

    Inaki Pena, Oriol Busquets, Riqui Puig, Collado and Carlos Perez are the only B team players joining the first team for their pre-season.

    Wague (ACON), Miranda and Abel Ruiz (Euro U-19) are missing due to international duty.

    Pretty disappointing to see so few youth players join the first team for the initial part of pre-season. Would of been good experience for the likes of Araujo (best B team defender), Reis (played last season in Eredivisie), Monchu and Hiroki (just because he is ridiculously good looking and we have games in Japan).

    Ah, so we lost even that. Last pre-seasons were more exciting that way but now we know why that was now. Valverde simply had to call more youngsters because it was a World Cup year and seniors had extended vacations.
