Barcelona made a brilliant come back against Inter Milan at the Camp Nou courtesy of two goals from Saurez and some inspiring plays involving both Messi and Vidal.



Vidal, Saurez and Messi Inspires a Sensational Barcelona Come Back against Inter

FC Barcelona - 2 | Inter Milan - 1


When all hopes are lost, we desperately pray for some divine intervention. And that's what happened at the Camp Nou last evening. It will still be a mystery how we remained in the match at the end of the first half. Inter Milan deserved to be three or four goals ahead, but they failed to convert. The entire episode came back to haunt them in the second half.


The end result appeared a bit unfair for the visitors, especially considering that they were 'Miles Ahead' of us in the first half. A draw would have been a fair result in that sense considering that we had better of the second half. But then when the balance is so tight, the impact of those world-class players shows and Barcelona had a couple of them in their team.

Valverde got all things wrong against Granada from tactics, to formation , to line-up. It's not much of a surprise that he appears clueless, but his biggest three mistakes has to be these.



 These 3 Big Mistakes by Barcelona's Valverde against Granada that Cost Them Dearly?

So Barcelona's 2019-20 Season is unraveling at a rapid pace, it seems like the season has already encountered a rapid tailspin. At the moment, we resemble like Arsenal who actually performs so well at home but looks like an average team on the road. May be Gunner fans would feel very agitated! To be honest, they have a point - at least they look brilliant at home.


Barcelona's away form has to be one of the worst among all teams in Europe. I guess we haven't won in the last seven matches away from home. That involves those humiliating losses against Liverpool and Valencia which lost a sure shot Champions League title and a record-breaking sixth Copa del Rey title.


Ernesto Valverde, has been a disaster for Barcelona so far. The back to back titles doesn't hide the fact that he is destroying what used to be Barcelona's playing style slowly but surely!



Will Barcelona's Footballing Identity Survive the Valverde Era? Or will it be History!

The Legend, Johan Cruyff would be turning in his grave seeing what has happened to his beloved club. The possession football, the Total football he instilled in the team with the 'La Masia' youth academy and the Golden Generation of the Club is nowhere to be seen. Valverde's team plays a style which is unrecognizable for many of the fans and most of the legendary players.


Barcelona's identity was based on the 'Total Football'. That's what the kids are drilled down from the moment they step into the academy. That's what we look in for players when we splash huge sum at them. Unfortunately, Valverde is chipping away every trace of that identity from this team. His mission of turning Barcelona into an average La Liga side is very much in progress.

Valverde appears to have run out of ways he could make this teamwork. He is not capable to solve the defensive crisis nor the offensive ones. He appears totally clueless and with this continuing encouragement of an equally clueless Board, he may finally succeed in destroying Barcelona's football identity for once and for all!



Will Valverde Really be able to Solve Barcelona's Latest Footballing Crisis? #Barca #Messi #ValverdeOUT

It may appear too dramatic to term what's going on in and around the team as a 'Footballing Crisis'. But for those who have been following the team for years, this has been nothing short of a 'Crisis of Identity'. For many, it has become so difficult even to understand the kind of football we are playing. It has no resemblance to what we knew and what we were known for.


Gone are those days of 'Tiki-Taka'! Forget 'tiki-taka', these are the days when we are forced to applause if the team is about to place four or more passes in the attacking third. The immense pressing game in not be seen, in fact, that's what opposition regularly employs against us and we just self-destruct. That's a tale of 'A Taste of Your Own medicine'.

Barcelona's Early season jitters shows that they may be depended on Messi more than ever, especially with the Clown Valverde in Charge!



 With Valverde in Charge, Barcelona's Hopes all will Depend on Lionel Messi!

Barcelona's early-season jitter establish one fact - with Valverde in Charge nothing is going to change. This is regardless of the new season's acquisition De Jong and Griezmann. With a loss, victory and a draw in their first three matches, Barcelona is in kind of a semi crisis at the very start of the season. The impact of this quadruple when you consider how we ended last season.


That means from last season end onwards, we have been quite uninspiring in the field and Valverde looks clueless to make any meaningful changes. Despite these, Barcelona is still rated as the top contender to win La Liga this season and the top contender for UEFA Champions League as per the bookmakers (Make sure to enjoy these Sign Up Bonuses). And the only reason for it is 'Lionel Messi'.

It's just a matter of days before the French Striker joins Barcelona, and the latest information confimrs it to be done by Saturday



Antoine Griezmann to Complete Signing with Barcelona by Saturday?

Antoine Griezmann signing is becoming a reality by every passing day. The latest information emerging is that the signing would be completed by the end of this week. There has been a lot of rumors regarding this, but looking at what's happening around Barcelona and the French star, this seems pretty authentic.


Griezmann made his intention clear by not joining Atletico Madrid squad for pre-season training. It was clear that the Frenchman is not going to return to Madrid. Now it needs to see how Atletico Madrid will react. They will definitely lodge a complaint against Barcelona for poaching their player. But Barcelona may not be that much worried about that!

Gerard Pique has been the corner stone of Barcelona's defense for some time. But is his presence actually destabilizing Barcelona? Should Barcelona look past him?




Gerard Pique has been the cornerstone of Barcelona's defense for some time. His performance in most of the matches this season showed how important he is to the team. Maybe we have lost the count of the number of times Pique has saved us with that last minute tackle or the crucial interventions.


Pique is the closest we have as a leader in the pack. Messi might be the captain, but Pique is the one players look up to in times of a crisis. And that's been his problem also, in the spectacular debacles of recent times, Pique remained a mere spectator. Is it time to seek a replacement for him? In this artcile, I will detail the reasons why Barcelona should look to replace Pique.

Some of the fans have started to seriously doubt whether Valverde and his Boss (Partner in Crime), Bartomeu is actually planted by the Club's enemies to destroy Barcelona's Legacy.




Most of us fans are one of the most blessed people in the history of FC Barcelona. We were lucky to witness Barca's 'Golden Generation' in action and also even more lucky to see an era of unparalleled success. Without a doubt, Barcelona redefined how Football was played in the past two decades.


But has that success gone to our head? We expect this team to win all the trophies in the season. is it a fair demand? Os it like some believes, there have been moles implanted in the Club to destroy Club's legacy from within. Bartomeu's and Valverde's action makes one think so!

Josep María Bartomeu, Barcelona Club President rebuked those fans who are angry with the Club and Management for the Anfield Collapse!




Josep Maria Bartomeu, the current incumbent in the President's throne at Barcelona have once again nacked the current Club Manager and the season's performance. In an event where he addressed the Oldest Season ticket holders and the club members, he played out to the gallery by calling the season an incredible season.


Quite surprising to hear Bartomeu having the courage to call a season, where we were treated and squashed like schoolboys in one of the biggest tournament in Europe. But then it doesn't come as a surprise?


May 20, 2019


So Barcelona ended the La Liga season witha 2-2 draw away from home at Eibar. The inept leadership of Valverde was in full display in this match too.




May be it's too much to ask! Barcelona churned out another disappointing performance aagainst Eibar drawing their last match of the La Liag 2018-19 season. I know we have already been crowned Champions and that may have resulted in a relaxed attitude. But this wasn't a relaxed attitude at work, but another totally inept performance.


If you expected Barcelona to rise like a hurt lion after the 4-0 drubbing at Anfield, you were absolutely wrong. The following results have shown us that the 4-0 wasn't the aberration, but actually, the 3-0 at Camp Nou Was!.

With Board and Players backing Valverde, Barcelona fans have been praying for a pretty bad defeat in Copa Final to get the sack the manager.




Some times it is not that bad to wish for self harm, if it achieve the ultimate good for them. That's what's going on in many of Barcelona fans ind and hearts right now. especially after Bartomeu came out and made a statement of Valverde having the backing of the players and management.


With Bartomeu backing, Valverde will most probably remain at Barcelona for at least a year. That means we get one more chance to experience Barcelona getting humiliated in Europe. Now most of us don't want that to happen and will be paying dearly for his sacking without any delay.



With Bartomeu confirming the continuation of Valverde, Barcelona is looking for more humiliation in Europe. What is behind this sinister move, is it done to drive away non-catalan fans?




A 4-0 drubbing at the hads of Liverpool at Anfield constitutes a great season as per Barcelona's current President, Josep Maria Bartomeu. This happens to all clubs who are governed by mediocre people like ours. In any other scenario, even if he wants to retain Valverde, he would have put it in some polished way. But this guy has the audacity to call this season a 'magnificent season’


Just to remind us all, we did win the League courtesy of one guy and the main rival playing like shit. And we failed in spectacular fashion in Champions League, a competition which was the No.1 priority for the Club (maybe only the Club Captain). How badly we wish that Real Madrid somehow reached the final and win it! Had that the case, the reaction would have been different.

With the impending arrival of Griezemann, Barcelona board is planning to give Valverde one more chance. Is that the right move?




Antoine Griezmann's impending arrival at Barcelona is the hottest topic in footballing circles now. His signing is pretty much expected and will be completed in the first week of the transfer windo itself. Barcelona is expected to trigger the release clause, and Atletico also confirmed that the paleyr will leave.


The only thing to know is whether some club like Real Madrid or PSG intent to hijack the deal. As per the latest reports emerging from France and Madrid, the player has set his sight on joining Barcelona. He is eager to play alongside Lionel Messi and try to win that elusive Champions League.


May 13, 2019


Despite all the heroics he has performed over the years, it may be time for Barcelona to make the toughest of decision regarding their Marquee player.




Barcelona Football Club is going through a crisis by it's own standards. The emphasize here is on 'Crisis by it's Standard'. In any othre club winning a domestic double would mean an extremely successful campaign, but not at Barcelona, especially this season.


If we win the Copa del Rey on 25th, how should we judge this season? Will it be considered a success or a failure based on Barca's humiliating Champions League exit?


May 12, 2019


All the indication coming out of Barcelona points to the possibility of Valverde continuing at helm at Barcelona, at least for one more year.




Ernesto Valverde has been receiving a fair share of stick from Barcelona fans, esepcially in the social media. The immediate reaction after the 4-0 at Anfield was a war cry to sack him. But situations have subsided now heavily and there seems to be a bit of calm in the club despite the social media going bunkers still!


There is a lot of people who believe that he will be fired by the club at the end of the season. But their wishes may not be granted and here is the reason why Valverde could remain as the manager, come next season.



Ivan Rakitic's Presence in the midfield of Barcelona, when it got overrun raises questions about the Croatians ability to control the game.




Ivan Rakitic is in the middle of the storm at Barcelona following the spectacular, but a humiliating loss at Anfield. To an extent, the fans are justified to raise fingers at the Croatian. He was literally 'Missing in Action' on the pitch of Anfield.


With him and Coutinho literally going invisible, Barcelona was reduced to a two-man midfield when the initial needs were for four men. Is there more to the presence of Rakitic in midfield and all those spectacular collapses in midfield?

Barcelona should ideally look to reinforce their rooster following the pathetic showing at Anfield.




Barcelona managed to be the laughing stock of the entire footballing world with a spineless display at the Anfield. There have been far greater collapses in football history, but the way we collapsed made us the worst of all. The side which had the 'Best Player in the World' looked worse than a second division side.


No side other than us would have given up a sizeable lead like that, especially when the opposition was missing key players. The Manager takes the majority of the blame, but there is a sizeable amount of players who have to take the blame too. Maybe the time for them at the club is over.

Lionel Messi and Saurez gave Barcelona a valuable 3-0 victory, which has put them in a great position to play the Champions League final in Madrid. In a very tight match, Barcelona's attacking players quality proved crucial, with Messi scoring twice and Saurez scoring the opener.


Enjoy the highlights below:

The Unexpected Exits of both Real Madrid and PSG shows why Barcelona's progress to next round is not a a foregone conclusion.




At the end of the first round of the first knockout stage of this year's UEFA Champions League tournament, Real Madrid's and PSG's progress was more or less a foregone conclusion. Many considered Barcelona's chances as a tricky one, but one the current Spanish Champions was expected to go through.


But all those Foregone conclusions were torn apart by a combination of extreme complacency and a determined opponent. In this background, it is safe to say that Barcelona's progress to the next round may not seem simple as I have thought earlier.
