    Laporta in the mud

    It's done


    🎙[@samuelmarsden] | Xavi: I?m always on the market! But in these last three, four months i haven?t had any contact with Joan Laporta or anyone from the board. They decided to stick with Koeman and I wish the club the best.

    Xavi: I feel ready to coach Bar?a. I know the club, the environment, but Koeman?s the coach at the moment and you have to respect that.

    I can't imagine they didn't have contact and that Laporta didn't ask at least informally about Xavis availability.

    But if this is true, and it must be true that he didn't get a solid offer, a lot of people should feel a bit ashamed for what they've written about Xavi the last month.

    Laporta doesn't feel Xavi is ready to coach Barca.
    I agree.
    Laporta should be more concerned about the fact the PissSG are trying to screw us at every turn.
    They want Dumbele on a free and are urging him to not renew.

    Laporta thinks Xavi should coach Barca B first or prove himself somewhere else in Europe. Nothing new and no need to contact him as Barca can be more than happy with Pimienta as B coach currently.

    Xavi wants to take the easy route and wait for the offer without proving himself first. Being a great footballer doesn't automatically make you a great coach.

    Fuck me. Sacked Pimienta. I'm beginning to get really worried now. This board is going off the rails.

    I think he pretty much wants to remove any decision that was brought in place by Bartomeu, obviously reinstated Alexanco who worked with him last time, Albert Benaiges is also returning to the club too.

    La Masia in general has been floundering for some time, Pimienta can feel very hard done-by though.

    Seems lost, doing things just to do them. Questionable decisions, a bit too early though! Get it together, please.

    Far too soon to jump to any conclusions.

    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]

    Man bitched about Rosell kicking out the good, competent people from La Masia when he became President only to do the same himself now. I can understand removing a couple of the guys that were fired today, but firing Pimienta to hire Sergi Barjuan makes very little sense even if he was a youth coach in the academy a decade ago.

    There's rumors Sergi Mila will be fired from Juvenil A too and be replaced by Rafa Marquez.

    Even if accurate, this does not mitigate the fallout but it would underscore the gift that keeps giving from Bartomeu in terms of the penalty-laden contract. Penalties that are so exorbitant you'd think it was intentionally crafted this way to ensure his continuity knowing full well Bartomeu would not be around to be on the hook for the financial implications.

    Like the Arda & Aleix fiasco where he gamed the club statutes to conduct transfer business during the elections, he has left financial booby traps throughout the club like a virus infecting the host
    Paolo Maldini - "In my opinion, Messi should win the Ballon D'Or each year. He's an unbelievable player."
