    At last I had some fun watching this Barca team. Great game for a sunday evening.
    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.

    Attack was entertaining and we played with great attitude. Defense will keep letting us down in future though. Hope Araujo can save us.

    Also Bobo left building after the 3-1.

    Bobo left the building after he realized he can't keep trashing Dest after he was clear MOTM or close by

    Attacking-wise this game showed much more compared to the last 5 or so
    MD and Defense-wise though...
    The team needs to improve massively

    We have a likeable squad tbf and haven't collapsed so far during these tough times. Proud of the team.

    Sergi still needs to go as stinking up the place.

    Disappointing that we're not even surpassing 50k fans at Camp Nou. Hoping it'll increase.

    Next weekend might be the first league Clasico with less than 90k.

    Seems like most of the fans were band wagoners all along. Covid also having an effect aswell maybe.

    Anybody who has been to the CN know it was full of tourist. Now the tourist are not there and everybody can see that Barca doesn't have real fans.
    Some say he's a fan of Barcelona...

    If you want to see Clasico now it's easy to see. A lot of tickets left. Not even sure if it will crack 90k.

    Tourist can be fans. I am a tourist in Barcelona but also a fan.

    It is a mixture of more things. Just because Covid hasn't probably impacted you guys financially, doesn't mean it hasn't done so with other people. There are around 83k season tickets for Camp Nou. The waiting list for getting one of those is very long. At the start of this season, Barca offered those 83k to pause their season ticket for one season if they are impacted by Covid and literally "can't afford" them. Nearly one third of those 83k have taken this offer, which tells you a little bit of how hard Covid has hit people in Catalonia.

    Another thing is lack of tourism. Passenger numbers at airports are still less than 50% of pre-Covid numbers. Asians especially have issues as their vaccine isn't "allowed" everywhere in Europe. Don't know about Spain and Catalonia in particular, but can be a factor too.

    Prices for a ticket haven't changed much and other Europeans are hit by the pandemic too. I'm sure there is a significant smaller pool of Barca fans who can afford a journey to Barcelona. Ticket prices for the Clasico start at €99 which is a lot (I know, it is a Clasico). On top of that you have to wear a face mask in the stadium, which lowers the fun of the experience too.

    Of course, performances on the pitch matter too and might play a role too, but I doubt it is the main factor for a lack of visitors. The club had worse times when it was much harder to get a ticket for the Clasico than it is now.

    Laporta, its time to bring boixos nois back in the stadium. He banned them, now let them inside again. We need that camp nou fortress atmosphere
