The draw for UEFA Champions League 2014-15 has been completed and Barca has been drawn in to Group F along with PSG, Ajax and Apoel Nikosia. Like last season we will be meeting Dutch Champions Ajax again in Group stage. Ajax may possess some trouble but may not be able to harm us. The biggest test in Group stage will come in the clash with French Champions, PSG. The winner of these clashes is expected to top the Group. Apoel would be considered a light-weight in this group but they will be competent at least at home. To be honest every Barca fans would be happy with the draw as we are drawn in to a very much manageable group. That is not the case with Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich team who have been clubbed with Manchester City, Roma and CSKA Moscow. That definitley is the "Group of Death".

Barcelona Football Club has announced the much awaited signing of defender Jeremy Mathieu from fellow Spanish Club, Valencia. The transfer of the French national was stuck up for sometime with dispute arising about the final fee and the way in it will be structured. But finally it looks Barca has succumbed to Valencia's demand and agreed to pay €20 Million. Jeremy Mathieu, who has been a pretty known face in La Liga was one of the best performing defender in last season. He usually plays in the left-back role, but did really well when he was shifted to the center back role last season. With this signing FC Barcelona have finally started to take steps to improve the defensive situation associated with the team. We may still need a number of signing as the sword of transfer ban is still hanging on our head.

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit. Napoleon Hill
This will be tough, even for a person like Lionel Messi - who to his credit keeps his emotions under check at most of the situation. After losing the final it was clear that he never wanted to spend anymore minute on the pitch. But he has to. He was the losing Captain! His colleagues, many who towers him in size couldn't hide their tears. Aguero, Mascherano, Garay, Demechelis all were crying like little children but not Lionel Messi. There was disappointment in the face but no tears. But one look in to those eyes told a different story. Inside we were crying, screaming, breaking down; but still presented an emotionless face. It didn't end their! He has to make that long walk up the stairs twice - first to collect the Golden Ball Award, then to the mandatory medal for the losing team. It was too cruel!
