    Joan Laporta

    I don`t wanna see him anymore.

    Rosell made some good transfers for Barca.

    I hope he didnt drop his trousers at the airport lol

    Anyway ive been a supporter of laporta (should that be a s'laporta? no? ok maybe not ..) since the beginning. He has lead this club superbly over the years and cemented us as the greatest club (in my totally and utterly unbiased opinion lol) of the last 5 years. Even when rijkaard was doing poorly i credit him for not being a real prick about it and firing him mid-season. I dont think he won many new fans when he hired pep, but although i was a bit curious about it to say the least, i defended his descision. I dont think anyone knew how well pep would do though..but its turning out to be a master stroke by laporta.

    Forsa laporta...

    Laporta is a lameduck president, and prone to grand standing.

    Lame duck? Not at all, he still holds all the cards and his position will be strengthened at the end of the season if we win the league and 1 or 2 other competitions. Of course he's prone to grandstanding but he's president of a La Liga club and they all are, he's made mistakes but he's also made the club stronger. Visca Laporta, visca el Barça.

    No one can really critisize Laporta this season, he refused to step down and wanted to continue what he started despite the majority of the fans going against him. I know our success this season is mainly because of Pep and the squad we have, but again, he made the decesion to appoint him. Plus I'm sure he'll make some important signing at the end of the season to keep a good image of him. But even if he didn't, when he leaves I doubt anyone could look back and say the Laporta Era was unsuccessful.

    Definitely. Its hard to find a president of a club such as fcb (omg i actually typed "madrid" there...i need to flog myself) whose tenure will be smooth and wont run into problems. The fact is that if you take where we were at the beginning of his time at the club, and where we are when he leaves, then no matter what went on in between, we are without a doubt in a better position now. Since we are in a better position now, then its fair to say that even though there have been setbacks during his 'reign', they have been overshadowed by the succcss of the club. And in 20 years people will look back on the good things he did for the club as opposed to the bad.

    Think the guy has been one of the best presidents we had..I know quite a number of Madridstas who wished they had a guy like Laporta as their president ..He has brought the club to winning ways..reduced debts...made the Barca brand popular..Its true he has made some mistakes but i think,...As maz said the good will overshadow the bad!

    I saw it on tv, that was not a great gesture from him, it was Baaddddd especially he threw out his hands on his way out expressing disdain. What a twat!!!! I thought the Espanyol president was the only one who can do such impropriety. Now I can say that he has no statesmanship whatsoever at all.


    "I hear some people say he will never be able to rediscover that form, but I don't think that's correct. He needs to refocus on his game, he needs to get his mind on his game and then I have no doubt that he can be at his best again. Like Messi, he brings so much happiness to football." - Rijkaard on Ronaldinho
