    Very strange timing. After losing in the least important competition(even though you wouldn't think so the way real madrid were celebrating the win). I wonder was there some crazy bonus offered to the winners we dont know about and that's what made up the owners mind

    It wasn't only the loss against Atletico, it was that draw against Espanyol as well, losing 2 points against the worst team in La Liga andin general we have been horrible in almost all away matches this season.

    He has said it this morning that will not hesitate to bench any starters, if they don't perform at a high level. That means, he will probably turn more often to Barca B for young talents. I hope, he can implant to the first team at least 2-3 of them. As of selection of new players, Quique is another YES MAN, same as EV and will do whatever his bosses say him.

    How will Semedo shine? By playing as a central forward? LOL

    Don't they know my name, my nick? I'm calling Barto right now, he'll get me back or I'll make public those photos...
    Dude. You should change your avatar and username already. There is a new coach in Barcelona. Enjoy. Let it go.

    Is not only the luck of pace player upfront. The entire team needs changes, starting with our 31-32 y.o. veterans. I can just hope that Setien will use more often Fati, Perez and Puig.

    Just face it, whoever the coach is, this team is facing downhill, unless we found new players to slowly replace the veterans. Well, it's normal for every club, but hopefully not too long until we could once again have at least 'silver' generation, assuming 2016-2015 as golden one.

    Fixed the 2006. year

    Finaly some realistic post. That Barcelona Era is something special. It can't be instantly replaced. It needs time to find players on all positions that will fit together and still be world class. Only 2 or 3 weak spots and top teams nowdays exploit that ...
    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.

    Unfortunately I cannot see likes or like a post for some reason.
    Apart from that, cheers to everyone who enjoyed that day.
    All thing shouldn't be serious and football is the least serious of all.
    But some times the joy it brings.. unparalleled.

    Whatever happens with setien, EV was a cancer for the club after the anfield defeat.. and the day he was sacked, was an epic day!!

    Agreed.On my end, I got really drunk with friends and we celebrated the news till after midnight. I hope Setien can handle better the locker room and work with our aging veterans for one last run at the CL.
