    Just read the report. Hopefully this is officially shot down and doesn't end up being true.

    I am not going to make Pimienta out to be a martyr of Barcelona youth football. But it has been very clear to me that he was been doing an excellent job for a number of seasons. The B team have been close to promotion twice, and when the games enter XT and Penalties then it becomes a lottery.

    But more than that, youth players have consistently improved under him over the length of a season. That much has been very clear.

    Now if he is sacked and Xavi comes in as B coach, then it is still a move that stinks of lack of respect to the job Pimienta has done. And if someone like Xavi does not come in, I do not see what option you can bring in that will do a better job with the group of players who will be here next season.

    Extremely disappointing news.

    Can't say it's all Pimienta, but plenty of players who trained under his supervision in Juvenil A and later Barca B are showing promise and doing well in the league, if not for Barca. Thought that was the main point of the job. Btw., I've always thought it's the best for Barca B to avoid Segunda.

    Sacking Pimienta does not make sense whatsoever.

    There must be more to it because makes no sense to sack him. Let's wait and see.

    An apparent re-modelling of the grass roots structure at the club under the guidance of Alexanko. Very weird decision, as I agree with Joan the primary remit for a coach at that stage is to nurture and help players development.

    Out of all the areas of the club you'd say were actually doing well, it's the Femeni team (who is actually excelling of course) and the b-team.

    If this is true, then probably there is a conflict with him.
    No other explanation

    Pimientas job was to develop players not get Barca B winning promotion. The B team is a vehicle for developing players.
    I cannot understand this. Pimienta was loyal and did a great job. Now he fucking gets shafted.
    Does Laporta know what he's doing or is this another knee jerk reaction?

    Yeah only thing which was working. Finally we had some good prospects.

    LaMasia itself might be a bit outdated.

    Laportameu has arrived.

    Garc?a Pimienta had earlier been told that he will continue at Bar?a B. He got an unexpected call today saying that he is fired. [@martinezferran]
    Maybe you guys dont believe me but even with 72 years I have a body from a 39 years old man, in my mind I am 22. When people try to guess my age they say 35 , 40 or something. Last week a girl said 29!!!.
