    I wouldn't underestimate Sociedad, not one bit. Watched the Athletic Bilbao derby the previous Saturday. Some would love to point finger at our beloved mister, but IMO Sociedad played a great home game.

    They are on a run of 9 wins in a row and are deservingly in 3rd spot, 7 points clear of Atletico Madrid. Closer to Real Madrid, actually.

    Lewa playing will improve our game massively compared to the last one, we need a vocal point in attack.

    Still don't care if we lose though.

    Be good to win the cup.

    Nothing but positives to it.

    As always the cup matters to club and will to Xavi.

    Hopefully a good atmosphere tonight and less of those quiet old socios listening to game on radio waiting to be entertained.

    The female team gets better atmosphere into Camp Nou than mens team do in majority of league games when those socios there.

    To be fair, we should beat Girona even with a rotated lineup, so I'm all for this game being the priority this week.

    I am not sure if he will rotate away to Girona.. doubt he does.

    But he clearly had the team on Sunday with this in mind.

    Also taking back MATS for Pena etc.

    Xavi is putting a lot of importance on cup.. which he is correct to do.

    He wants the win the double that's cool, mini treble would be even better, but not at the cost of the league, if he gets it right, Big dick waving, if he wins the cup & loses the league...

    No coach would take a domestic cup at cost of league.

    Nothing unique to Xavi.

    This is why cup matters.. becuse on its own better than not winning a thing. Added to league makes a double etc.

    Xavi gets it.

    Fucking cowardly if he gave it up and claimed it doesnt matter. Even if Barca would have been stronger with him that season and less turmoil. The team needed to rebuild.

    Glad he went full strength, winning a double would be massive. Come on Barca!
