Barcelona have made some remarkably high-profile, and equally as remarkably cheap, signings this summer. Memphis Depay and Sergio Agüero are the big names joining the attack, both for free, but alarmingly, the area that needed the most attention was the defence.

The only new addition that could help in this regard is former Manchester City centre-back Eric García. Still, as detailed in this The Athletic piece, he only played 35 games for City and is still only 20-years-old. While certainly a talented prospect, the Spaniard isn’t the upgrade that Barça’s stats would suggest they need.

Naturally, finalising a new deal for Lionel Messi and getting finances in order is the priority for the club, but should attention be turned to reinforcing the backline?

If you believe the papers, FC Barcelona is in the midst of a nasty crisis. The wage bill is too high, there’s no money for transfers, and the club’s reputation is in tatters after the Super League revelations. Fans of one of the biggest brands in world football have certainly had happier days when the trifecta that was Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez, and Leo Messi controlled the sport.

Still, the idea that Barca is in turmoil is a little farfetched. Yes, money is a problem at the moment, yet the good news is that every cloud has a silver lining.

From what point this deal to swap Griezmann and Saul brings any benefit to Atletico Madrid is beyond common sense. The only one who needs this deal is FC Barcelona, not Atletico Madrid nor Griezmann. Is this some kind of SCAM/FRAUD?

"With Barcelona, Everything is Possible". That literally ought to be our club's motto. At least we should replace our great motto with this during the transfer window. Deals which makes you head spin with amazement, deal which makes you wonder whether the other party is governed by fools; those are absolute normalcy at Barcelona during a transfer Window.

We had the endless rumours of how we were going to sign Neymar, actually, he always was on a private jet back to Barcelona. Then there was the always present Lautaro Martinez deal. Hopefully, everyone has sweet memories of the done deal to sign Georginio Wijnaldum. Then how many others, I have lost count. The latest entrant is the Griezmann - Saul swap deal between FC Barcelona and Atletico.

Futbol Club Barcelona have been attracting supporters, setting records and winning trophies for more than a hundred years. Established in 1899, the Spanish football team survived political turmoil, civil war, occupation and numerous other challenges to be the world-class contender they are today.

Together with long-time rivals Real Madrid, they’re one of the most successful European clubs, consistently performing well in the continent’s top five football leagues.

For Football fans of Barcelona, it has been quite a disappointing season with Barcelona Men's football team struggling to come third in the League. Normal clubs will be thrilled after winning the King's Cup, but for a Club like Barcelona, the failure of the other tournaments dampens that spirit. That's the consequence of having enormous success in the past and also have the World's Best Player in the ranks.

In all this doom, it would be criminal for us to ignore the success of the two other department of Barcelona's Sporting Fraternity - The Men's Basket Ball Team and the Women's Football Team. They made sure that we had enough to celebrate at the end of the season if one can look past 'Messi and Boys'.

FC Barcelona produced one of the most sensational performance of this season last night, in a stadium where they normally struggle to dominate. Barcelona kept up the good work they have been displaying in recent matches, with a 6-1 demolition of Real Sociedad at Anoeta Stadium. Lionel Messi was once again in sensational form scoring twice and assiting one.

Enjoy the highlights from the match below:

FC Barcelona closed the gap between Atletico Madrid and themselves to mere four points with a victory over Huesca. This was expected to be an easy outing, even though at times Barcelona made life tougher for themselves. Once again, they had Lionel Messi in impeccable form. He scored twice and created another in the 4-1 victory.

Enjoy the highlights from Barcelona's 4-1 victory over Huesca below.

Barcelona were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday evening following a double-leg defeat to French champions PSG. The damage was done in the opening game at the Camp Nou where the Parisians hammered Ronald Koeman’s men 4-1 to the disbelief of fans watching around the world.

Barca were one of the pre-tournament favourites with many leading soccer to be crowned kings of Europe for the sixth time but that wait rumbles on. It has been six long years since FCB last claimed the top prize in European football. Hardly a drought but for fans accustomed to glory, it will feel like an age.

Barcelona did the unthinkable, staged a dramatic fightback which saw them secure the Cop Del Rey final spot. Once again Barcelona fans could dream of silverware, something which was unthinkable a week back.

Unbelievable has been this week, if you happened to be a Barcelona fan, maybe better a Messi fan. The week started with 'Music to the Ears' news of Bartomeu getting arrested, and that too for setting up a campaign to smear the players and their families. If he had walked unhurt from the 'BarcaGate' scandal, fans would have simply given up on the hope of a God or 'The Ultimate Truth'.

As it stands, the scoundrel was charged and taken to prison temporarily, Barcelona kind of kept their League alive, maybe by a shoestring, but alive it is! And now Barcelona against all odds produced another master class to secure a place in the final, against all beliefs!

Barcelona's 2-0 victory over Sevilla on Saturday reignited the visitor's hopes to clinch the La Liga title. Lionel Messi and Ousman Dembele reignited Barca's hopes with their two goals, putting them only two points behind leader's Atletico Madrid. Currently, Atletico has one games in hand. Even though they won against Villareal this weekend, they have been a bit wobbly lately..

Barcelona's hope seemed very dim a few weeks ago, but their victory in their nine games out of 10 La Liga games raised their hopes. Keep in mind that Athletico Madrid is set to compete against Real Madrid coming weekend, presenting an excellent soccer betting opportunity at Betway.

FC Barcelona produced another Remontada, this time against Sevilla in the second leg of Copa del Rey semi-final. Goals from Dembele, Pique and Braithwaite secured Barcelona a 3-0 victory, which takes them to the final of Copa del Rey. This one is a significant result considering the issues the team is having.

Enjoy the highlights video from the Match below. This one is one to treasure for each Barcelona fans.

This was billed as the moment Barcelona gets back into the La Liga title race by the Catalan media, but alas like we have seen the umpteenth time. They screwed it all. Barcelona may have dominated in all aspects, but then that's a testimony of how bad Cadiz was. This time maybe it's for Good.

Short story first, Atletico Madrid gave Barcelona and Real Madrid a chance to get back into the league title race and as expected the current reigning champions took that with open arms. For the team from Barcelona, they managed to once again shoot themselves on their foot, drawing 1-1- against Cadiz at home.

Barcelona were lethargic, complacent, uninspiring and hurtful to watch yesterday. To be honest, Real Madrid weren't great either, but they most importantly managed to get away with three points after another horrendous performance. They were being just classic 'Real Madrid'.

By the end of the night, there were no feeling of being hurt. When something becomes routine and expected, people get adjusted to that. The hopes were all ended in the first few minutes.

Barcelona suffered yet another humiliating defeat at Camp Nou going down 4-1 to a KMbappe inspired PSG. KMbappe scored a hat-trick, which many believe indicate a change of guard in World of Football. Honestly, I believe last night's performance doesn't prove KMbappe's greatness, but only a testimony of how bad this Barcelona side is.

By the end of the night, there was no feeling of being hurt. When something becomes routine and expected, people get adjusted to that. The hopes were all ended in the first few minutes. Midway through the match we were going through the motions and were worried about how it will all end in Paris. Luckily there is no hope left for you to be worried about!

Even though Barcelona let go of this Super Cup from the jaws of victory, one have to agree that it doesn't come as a huge surprise. What surprised us was that Barcelona was winning the Trophy with just a minute to go. They didn't deserve that!

Barcelona's Super Cup Defeat was not a Surprise, Considering Koeman's Tactic

In the end, there was that familiar heartbreak story that we (Barcelona Fans) were all so accustomed to now. It has to go this way. Barcelona just simply can't go and lose, they need to build up hope and then shatter it is the unkindest fashion. This time that came via Jordi Alba ducking! Why Jordi, WHY?

A day is a good measure to sink this feeling in and use the objective side of your brain if one has one! Yesterday, it was all about rage on Alba and his stupidity, which grabbed defeat from the jaws of triumph. But today with the rage settling in, one has concluded that Barcelona deserved to lose this more than winning it.

Now we wonder whether the hope which got rekindled at the start of New Year was a genuine false-hope. Most of the bookmakers like Meta.reviews still expect us to make the top four, but if this final is a testimony, Barcelona may have to work hard to make them true!

With turn of the new year, Lionel Messi has come back to his usual self scoring goals and terrorizing opposition. Let's take a look at what went right for Barcelona's captain so suddenly.

It all starts to come back slowly, atleast for Lionel Messi. The turn of New Year has brought a new Lionel Messi, who is sudddenly once again the greatest player on earth. He currently leads the La Liga scoring charts, in a season which is considered his worst ever!

Barcelona still is a long way away from making a legitimate challenge for League, but if Messi has unleashed himself, we all could dream. But what happened so suddenly that we see a different Lionel Messi.

Barcelona have experienced an average season by their high standards and they have already dropped points in eight of their 17 La Liga games. That sees them already seven points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid and the deficit could extend further with Diego Simeone's side having two games in hand.

Hence, the Blaugrana face a stiff task of reclaiming the Spanish crown and they find themselves in a position where they could miss out on the title for the second season running, something which has not happened to them since 2008 when Real Madrid won the league for successive years under two different managers in Fabio Capello and Bernd Schuster.

Barcelona is drawn against French Champions PSG in the first knock-out stage of this season's UEFA Champions League.



A mouth watering contest between FC Barcelona and PSG awaits everyone in the next round of UEFA Champions League competition. PSG will start favourite in the tie, courtesy of playing the second leg at home and Barcelona's poor season so far.

PSG is not flying in full cylinders so far this seaosn. So Barcelona definitely have a chnace. But a lot will depend on whether Koeman remains in charge. With the Dutchman in charge, we may not have any hope!


It is safe to say that this season has not gone to plans for Barcelona. Not as per the fans plans nor as per the coach's plans. The season has been a very disappointing affair so far.

Barcelona is in all kind of serious problems. Lying a whole mighty 9 points behind the League leaders, Barcelona's hopes of challenging for the League is virtually non-existent. Nor Barcelona's performances have shown any signs of a resurgence or an ambition to do so.

The most hurting part of all this wasn't the result, it's the realization that there is no end of this suffering in near future.



It doesn't surprise us any more, these defeats. We have come to terms with these horrible results. Now the immediate prayer on everyone's mind would be to see a series of not-so-bad results, which would help us to qualify at least for Champions League.

That's how the situation has turned for worse under Koeman. Despite the horrible last few matches under Setien, we all would admit that he at least got us dreaming in the first few matches undercharge. Still, to date, we wonder why he changed from that initial orientation and how it would have all changed had he remained true to that.

With Koeman there was not such pretence! This guy's unique selling point was that 'He knew How to Fix Things'. At the moment he doesn't look capable of doing anything other than going down under the weight of his ego.

Nov 16, 2020

It has been a tough 18 months for Barcelona and after a difficult start to the 2020/21 campaign, the big concern for the Catalan club is that this season is going to end in a similar way.

New manager Ronald Koeman has not had the start he would have been looking for, which means that Barca are going to have to play catch up. Despite all the doom and gloom, we have decided to look at some positives which will hopefully keep spirits up for those who follow the most prestigious club in the world.
