Koeman's biggest challenge will be to integrate some of the promising youngsters into the line-up, at the same time using the best of the proven stars. Riqui Puig's role is still not clear in the line-up and will be the primary focus for the new coach.

Why Shifting Immediately to a 3 Man Defense will help Riqui Puig and Barcelona?

Many Barcelona fans are slowly waking up to the prospect of seeing very less of Riqui Puig this season. That was unthinkable for many fanboys, a week before but slowly and steadily the reality is dawning upon them.

In every sense, it is quite disastrous for the Club and the youngster, if he ends up not being a first-team regular this season. The five-man substitute allows him to see some playing time, but then he is not yet promoted to the first team. Only Ansu Fati is promoted.

Koeman's biggest problem could effectively integrating Francisco Trincão to play efficiently with Lionel Messi, Barcelona's Captain. It may seem so simple, but we have seen how players struggled earlier! Will it happen again?

Francisco Trincão entertained all in Barcelona's first outing of the 2020-21 season. Even though the opposition was a below-average side, and we should refrain from going euphoric about that display; even then Barcelona fans were quite impressed by what they saw of Francisco Trincão.

The second half display was quite brilliant, especially if we compare with the first-half display. The second half had the young and the new kids, and that was the difference-maker. But the brightest spot was Trincão.

Many consider him to be one of the brightest spots from a rather disappointing season. Will this be the Season where he genuinely becomes one of the starters. Or is he going to struggle with new manager around!



Riqui Puig was one of the rare bright spots along with Ansu Fati, from a rather disappointing last season. He was quite good and we all demanded more and was disappointed when we didn't see enough of him towards the end of the season.

It was surprising why Setien failed to use him after he looked pretty bright in many of his outings. Naturally, everyone expects him to showcase his talent more this season. Is that going to happen? Maybe not, and don't be surprised!

With Lionel Messi staying back at the Club, the majority of the Cules are relieved. Relieved that this extended saga, that threatened to upend the season is finally over. Relieved that the World's Best Player will be there for at least one more season. The key is the word 'at-least'!

The announcement also rekindled the hope of maybe seeing Messi play out his career at Barcelona. The dream of every Barcelona fan would be to see their captain renew for another two more years. We still need to wait to see how that hope will churn out!

Even though Messi can claim the higher ground, when the dust settles the winner will emerge from the opposite end, and unfortunately it is Bartomeu.



In the end, the only one who will stand alone when the dust settles would be Lionel Messi, the Argentinian Maestro. His supporters may claim how Messi handled a very tricky situation, with a targetted attack on the board and clearly explaining his decision to stay back at the club.

But when it all ends, this will be once again remembered as another moment where Messi failed to stand up and fight when the going got tough. That's always an accusation even those who loved him regularly levels against him. The current situation is not going to look favorable when viewed through that angle.

Catalan media is painting a picture favorable for Bartomeu in the whole saga, but they know that Messi holds all the card. His silence is killing them.

So what we have learned so far - Messi and his camp believe that he is no longer a Barcelona player, Messi wants to go from Barcelona with amicable terms, Bartomeu doesn't want anything of it, He wants Messi to renew the contract.

One thing is clear whether he likes it or not, Messi is gone for good. If the court does not allow him to leave Barcelona, there is a high chance of him retiring from football than continue playing at Barcelona. Then as he did with Argentina, he will make a come back from retirement in the winter transfer window. Not a bad option for Manchester City!

Lionel Messi should insist on leaving Barcelona for free as mentioned in his exit clause. That will be a huge favor he will be doing for his old club as well as his new club.



All signs show that 'Messi-Exit' saga is only in his initial stages. The entire Globe including social media and the footballing clubs are in a stage of shock. Many of the active Pursuiter is struggling to make out whether this is all a political circus or an active interest of 'The GOAT' to move away.

No one wants to end up looking stupid. It's normal, and that's why no club is showing a clear public interest in the pursuit. Behind the scenes, everyone is making contact. The silence surrounding the Messi entourage makes this entire episode more intriguing!

The kind of vitriol that's thrown on the likes of Messi, Saurez and Busquets baffles everyone. One is left to wonder whether any other club supporters will treat their Legends this way!



The way things are turning out baffles everyone. Bartomeu and Rosell destroyed everything which was held dear to this club. The footballing project was destroyed with impeccable precision, La Masia was demoted to just being cattle shed and a team which entertained football fans across the world with their tiki-taka style of football was reduced a poor imitation of itself.

The one guy who held things together, Lionel Messi is now being held as the guys who are responsible for all this. In reality, it was Lionel Messi's superheroic performance which peppered over all the cracks. Going into the Bayern clash we believed we had a chance because of one man, and that says it all!

With another Cryuff disciple in charge now, will we see a resurrection of Barcelona? Or the curse of 'Cryuff's Tears' will sink the club to further lows!



There is indeed an element of poetic justice with what is going on at the great Sporting Institution named, FC Barcelona. I purposely didn't use the word football club, because it's not the footballing project which remains completely shattered. It was merely the last bastion that was destroyed by the evil King and his kin.

It is safe to say that Barcelona has lost its identity in terms of Footballing ideals and Principles which governed the clubs. Nowadays under the able leadership of Bartomeu and earlier Rosell, Money, Fame, and Success are the only things which matter. That was not the case with the Club for a pretty long time.

Barcelona's first European Cup hero, Ronald Koeman is handled the task of steering a wrecked ship. The Dutch is expected to make some tough decision.



FC Barcelona has officially announced the appointment of Ronald Koeman as the new Firts team Manager. He joins the Club in a 2 year long deal whch will end on 30th June 2022. The former Dutch international has resigned from his current position as the National team manager.

It is believed that Barcelona will be compensating the Dutch federation to the tune of 5 million for his service. The Club also confirmed the appointment of Ramon Planes as technical director, who replaces the now sacked Eric Abidal.

Aug 16, 2020

The current Barcelona President, Josep Maria Bartomeu has revealed that he has no intention to resign from Barcelona power structure anytime soon. It appears that no humiliation is big enough for the crook to leave from a place, which will feel the after-effects of his destruction for ages.


There is no hope for Barcelona with Bartomeu in Charge!


Strangely enough, even an 8-2 humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich may not be good enough to get rid of the crook named Bartomeu from Barcelona. That's a bitter truth which is sinking in slowly in the minds of all those enraged Barcelona fans. Despite the enormity of the humiliation we may have to slowly accept the fact that 'Nothing will Change' in Barcelona!

The players have gone into hiding for now. They won't remain their long. Once they understand that Bartomeu will do everything to cling to his position, they will be out backing their President who will guarantee their enormous paycheck. So wait for that brilliant statement from Jordi Alba about the thankless Barcelona fans.

Barcelona suffered their worst ever European defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich losing 8-2. To be honest the scoreline could have been a lot worse!



There is nothing to say or write after what we saw at display in Portugal tonight. The Barcelona team suffered their worst defeat in living memory. Bayern treated them like schoolboys. May be comparing the display of our boys to schoolboy is a disgrace to the latter!

In the end we all felt relieved that it was only 8-2. It could have been a lot worse. Barcelona deserved to lose by at least a dozen goals today. They should thank their luck that the deficit was only 6 goals.

Barcelona start as only the second favorite in their match against German Champions. Will they be able to create an upset or the nightmare of 7-0 defeat make a comeback visit?


Messi Scoring against Bayern Munich

This year's Champions League tie has moved into its final leg with the Quarter Finals starting from tomorrow night. The Coronavirus impact has created a drastic change in the way the Tournament is organized. Gone are those beautiful home and away trips concept!

Anyways with the Stadium being empty, the home advantage matters very little. There is no intimidation visiting an away stadium. So the decision by UEFA to conduct the entire tournament from now on as a single-legged tie seems perfectly logical.

Off-late Quique Setién's decision making resembles Valverde to a high extent. He remains passive and is afraid to make any changes. Has he already been fired by Barcelona?



Against all the odds, and amongst all the negativity, Barcelona managed to proceed to the next round of Champions League. That's a feat the newly crowned Spanish Champions and Italian Champions failed to do. The failure of Juventus is quite big as everyone expected them to stroll past Lyon.

Barcelona was expected to struggle, and for the fans they did struggle. But still, at the end of the day, they moved past a good Napoli side with an aggregate scoreline of 4-2. That's a positive way of looking at it!

Lionel Messi Inspires Barcelona Victory

FC Barcelona - 3 | Napoli - 1

If there was any doubt regarding whether Barcelona's fate lies in the hand of a single man, this match cleared all that doubt. Barcelona will stay alive so far Messi can create magic like this continuously.

If Barcelona fans were looking for hope in this match, they most probably would have been left with mixed feelings. Barcelona did more than enough to secure the progress but not in a convincing fashion.

There is unanimous agreement among everyone involved in Football about Braithwaite's future at Barcelona. Very few expect him to stay in Barcelona. Maybe he should!

To be in Braithwaite's shoes is a very difficult situation currently. Every day there is news about him, unfortunately for him its always about his departure from Barcelona in the transfer window. None of us is surprised by all these developments!

His was an emergency signing to fill the void in the squad left by Saurez and Dembele's injury. With those players back and many expecting better future signings, Martin Braithwaite may be an excess in the squad. But he still could offer a lot in Barcelona and maybe the club should give him a real chance.

The prospect of a trophyless season is very much on, but Quique Setién ain't going to go down quietly. The entire focus will be shifting to the Champions League very quickly.


Barcelona have never won a Champions League title without lifting the League title before-hand. That's usually something their arch-rival Real Madrid forte to perform. For Barcelona, Champions League is usually a reflection of the exceptional form they show throughout.

With already knocked out of Copa del Rey, and almost at the verge of surrendering the League title to Real Madrid, Barcelona's only hope for saving this season is in Europe.

On the onset, it looks like a decision that has happened in far-away England. But both the clubs have too many connections in recent times, to overlooks!
