The crisis of today is the joke of tomorrow. H.G.Wells

The Year 2014 ended in a sober note with Court of Arbitration for Sport dismissing FC Barcelona's appeal against a two window transfer ban imposed by FIFA. For many who followed the entire chronicles of event this come has no surprise. Only the extremely optimistic believed that the transfer ban will be revoked or at least reduced. Now with the transfer ban in place Barca cannot sign any players in January 2015 (which we hardly do!) and summer of 2015. The summer transfer ban would be the one which will hurt us a bit. As I wrote earlier, this ban could force the management, who notoriously have a habit of not trusting La Masia, to trust our kids again. If there any other team who could overcome such a transfer ban, then it has to be FC Barcelona. And that's all down to the strength of our recruits at La Masia.

The transfer ban also reminds Barca the need to be extra vigilant when dealing with youth transfer policy at La Masia. There is no doubt that FIFA's clause which caused the violation is quite a foolish one. It does nothing but to hamper the development of extremely talented kids from nations which are not considered football powerhouse. But we have to respect the reason why it has been put in place and that was only to prevent the exploitation of these kids by agents and Clubs. We should take it to FIFA to ammend the clause so that it clearly helps these promising kids.
