    10 - Lionel Messi - v2

    The same thing happened last season against Atletico, although it was his cleverness, not strength, that made a difference. Hopefully he keeps doing that more now that he is told to press heavily. Can't say I'm not impressed by Tata so far.

    Gareth Bale

    Of course he does, but it's not really about one's value, it is about what the team needs at the moment. Well, it is their problem of course, if they want to pay 100m+ for a midfielder/winger while they still need a new world class striker. Maybe they can afford both. If they can't, it is a huge...

    10 - Lionel Messi - v2

    It is much easier to perform a long-range through ball in the Premier League due to the ridiculous amount of space on the pitch. Those clips have nothing to do with their current situation.

    Celta Vigo

    Maybe a bit late, but I'm excited to hear the news about Nolito joining Celta, this is a right team for him. Also, I wouldn't mind them loaning some Barca youth players apart from Rafinha if that would allow them to play regularly on a higher level. I think I'll watch that match against Porto...

    Borussia Dortmund

    Piszczek is actually the one I am worried about. His replacement, to be precise. Is there any right back in Dortmund apart from him? Because I'm not sure if Grosskreutz can be that consistent on this position as a not-so-pacey midfielder. I also remember Błaszczykowski playing as a LB in...

    Pep Guardiola

    With that shameful match result right on his face? :pep:

    Bayern Munchen

    Hopefully Dortmund can stop them, at least in that single clash, I don't want them to be as successful in 2013 as we were in 2009 :pep:

    Tito stepped down as Barça's coach. New coach to be announced next week.

    Klopp will not be leaving for at least 3 or 4 years from now as far as I remember an interview with him.

    Francesc "Tito" Vilanova

    I feel so sorry for him. As for his replacement, I don't know if I fully trust Rubi on such a task. Marcelo Bielsa is unemployed right now. He's a great coach, knows how Barca's system works, and more importantly is very experienced. But I don't think it's going to happen.

    10 - Lionel Messi - v2

    I agree, still all those arguments about Ronaldo being the hard-working one are overused and not fair towards Messi even if he's still considered to be the better one overall. Messi is not only an extraordinary footballer in pretty much every aspect, but also a true professional and a true...

    10 - Lionel Messi - v2

    I was looking at all those training pictures and then I suddenly realised that he's SO buffed up right now, it's not that a lot has changed recently, it was simply hard to notice over all this time. And they say that Cristiano is the one who works out so much. Nothing Messi can't do better...

    Thiago Silva

    Don't you think that it's one thing to say that to the press and the other to make it public on an official site? What I mean that for me this is much more reliable than all the bullshit that we are being served by media all the time. Now it looks like he decided to stay and while this transfer...

    Thiago Silva

    I think we can end the speculations now. He's not going anywhere. A statement from his agent on PSG's official site is enough for it I guess:

    Thiago Alcantara

    Sport claims that only 20M went to Barca, the other 5M consists of a friendly within 4 years, also Thiago decided to have his wage lowered to make that deal possible. Well, at least someone's number is now free. :neymar:

    Thiago Alcantara

    Are you serious? Stop exaggerating. It was a bad move for him indeed, but he's not even close to being the biggest Barca's traitor. Calm down.

    Sergio Busquets

    Here's the girlfriend part: Contrary to what was suggested a few days ago, Barcelona left back Jordi Alba does not have a new girlfriend. He is still single. [md] @barcastuff Those summer football rumours... :lol:

    10 - Lionel Messi - v2

    Didn't CR say pretty much the same thing last year? I remember him saying that he'd had a better 11/12 season than Messi. That could be a good sign. I don't think that public arrogance is a good strategy. 5th in a row? :messi:

    Thiago Alcantara

    The only thing I can think of is that Iniesta finally won't have to play on the left wing now. It used to happen a lot, maybe a bit less at the end of the season, but still. As of our midfield future, I have high hopes of Babunski too, along with Samper. The thing with La Masia is that it's...
