    pique would make a great president because unlike the current board and many presidents past, he actually speaks his mind in the face of clear injustices. barto is a coward--imagine what a president that empowers and supports our players through their difficulties (i.e tax scandals etc) could do for morale...

    for all his flaws, pep was right at least to part with this board and not look back.

    Loved how crowd chanted his name and how he knocked down Williams.

    It is sort of in style to criticize Lucho in every which thing. Lucho did not do any thing wrong there, any thing at all. He was like, "Why the fuck are you so bothered? Don't you think he is an adult and that he can handle himself?"

    Too much attention to referees. Start playing better first, then complain.

    Agree!! I'm sick of us being the recipient of bad decisions and RM receiving favours from the ref.

    I hope Pique continues to be outspoken.

    As a president you have to be diplomatic but pull some strings behind the curtains (I think Bartomeu is doing that but he just doesn't have the power of Perez - that's understandable though because Florentino is 2nd or 3rd most powerful man in Spain) not complaining publicly about everything. If Pique becomes our president he'll need to learn to behave different than he does now as a player.

    Sorry, I love Geri and support his declarations about Catalan independency etc. but I disagree with his complaining about referees because it won't bring us anything positive. If anything, this will make things even worse for us.

    Piqué would clean house at barça to better attack RM. Why would Barto attack anyone ? He's dirty and thinking in terms of his own interest.

    Pique never said anything about Catalunya independency. Just that he wishes for the referendum to be allowed to happen.

    And it won't make it worse. Laporta used to put pressure on rfef and the lfp, and it worked back then. Being quiet while being robbed is what doesn't help.

    Barto couldn't pull in a brothel mate. He's a dork.

    I mean if only he was a nerd, he'd made smart decisions.
    He's just an awkward person with limited brain.
    And a (former) Perico.

    It is funny how so many people don't realize this.

    One other thing is Pique is rich and wouldn't be prone to corruption as some other former presidents.

    Well, Laporta and Bartomeu/Rosell are rich too. Very.

    Macri in Argentina is rich too.

    As the quote goes: 'Greed does not rest until it is satisfied, and greed is never satisfied'

    That said, Pique being a former player and not just a business man gives him far more credibility than anyone else. Pique would probably win quite easily if he really goes for it after he retires. Rich, affluent family and a very popular player and public person.

    He has the personality, the balls to not hide and knows the club inside and out as his grandfather is a former VP too, and he has a lot of important contacts, connections in the World. A lot would depend on him appointing the right people though.
