Yesterday he was amazing, that goal was prime Lewa style. Unfortunately he didnt get other chances to score even tough he made great runs. We trust in Lewa!
Makes great runs every game and gets ignored. Also, zero crosses to head in. Awful awful service all around.


Will get one or two good chances once every 7 games and by then a striker of his calibre is already frustrated and not motivated enough.

Oldest Barcaforum excuse in the book for players underperforming... 'the players ignore him'.

Reality is he cant make many of the runs these players are trying to pick out.

Pedri is not looking up and seeing Gundo make that run yesterday and deciding to pass it as not Lewa.... that is basic lack of understanding of how players think on pitch.

Barcelona want veteran superstar to stay at club, will respect whatever the player decides​


Robert Lewandowski’s struggles at Barcelona have been well-documented this season. After all, the Poland international only has nine goals in La Liga so far and the evident toils have already been acknowledged by his national team manager, Michal Probierz, who has expressed how “frustrated” he is by Barça’s performance.

Given the gravity of his presence, a lot was expected from the veteran forward and while it is not entirely his fault, the fact remains that his turnaround in front of the goal has diminished to a great extent.

Considering the situation at hand, questions regarding his future at Barcelona are bound to surface and if a report from SPORT is to be believed, the Pole is still prioritising his continuity but wants to see the sporting project beyond Xavi before making a decision.

Lewandowski is valued at Barcelona​


It’s no secret that Lewandowski hoped for a better season but he now focuses on staying with the team while waiting for a new exciting project with a new coach.
The forward is highly respected at Barça for his professionalism and good physical condition and despite a tough injury in Porto, the club wants him to stay, even maintaining his salary for the third year of his contract, making him the highest-paid player within the team.
Currently, Lewandowski is anticipating potential squad improvements. He’s comfortable in Barcelona, even though his performance this year isn’t his best, having scored 14 goals and six assists in 31 games across all

Barcelona will respect Lewandowski’s decision​

Barça will respect whatever decision Lewandowski makes as they have a good relationship with him and his agent, Pini Zahavi.
Whether he continues leading the team or accepts a lucrative offer elsewhere, the club will acknowledge his contributions.
Lewandowski joined Barça from Bayern Munich, making a significant economic effort. He was a key signing for Joan Laporta, and his performance has consistently been good.
The veteran believes he has at least three more years at a high level, and the club sees him as a crucial part of the project for at least another year but only if he chooses to stay.

All old news.

There is no way half way through season they are going to try and force him out and most likely know they are fucked if try to sell him in summer anyway.

No one in their right mind at Barca thinks Lewa is worth his salary and cost on books next season but they may well have to live with it.

The problem defenders are always stick to him and except Gundo and maybe Frenkie nobody can play a precise pass between the defenders like Gundo did yesterday

so other players get more freedom tough

anyways, his legs look faster, im excited to see him against Napoli :cool:

He's making the runs and is largely getting ignored.
Barcelona are choosing to unnecessarily dink the ball around another dozen times or so, holding and slowing down play, allowing the opposition to markup. They need more direct play.

Nah its the same old excuse as ever.

There would be no reason to 'ignore his runs'.

There was plenty balls into box yesterday with him nowhere to be seen.

Just a a fluke Gundo can find the chances and Roque etc...

The opposition can play hight up and keep Lewa away from area as he is zero threat running in behind. Thats the reality.

Bernd Leno gave Sport Bild an interview released in todays print edition. Some parts of the interview can be viewed here (German).

On the Bundesliga being called "Farmers League" in England:

"Of course I think the term is inappropriate. But to be honest, that’s what everyone here calls the Bundesliga."

"This is the country of the Premier League and no one is really interested in the Bundesliga, neither the English nor the foreigners."

"A term that would fit better would be “development league”. Ambitious players very often go to Germany and then back or to the Premier League - see Haaland, De Bruyne, Gündogan. There are many examples."

"But again on the topic of “Farmers League”, I have discussions with my teammates every week. I can tell you an example:

When Bayern played against Hoffenheim at the start of 2024 on Friday evening, Burnley played against Luton Town. We were all in the physio room, but I had no chance [to watch Bayern].

They were saying that not much happens in the Bundesliga, it's not interesting. No chance, the boys said: "The Farmers League" won’t be on the screen."
