Cryuff would be turning over in his grave with the recently announced plan of Barcelona and another 11 clubs to form a European Super League. The idea itself runs against the core belief which the Club has held dearly over the years. Is there anyone who could get Barcelona out of this Self-Destructing path?

In one stroke of the pen, Barcelona once again erased everything they ever stood for in its amazing history of all these years. Those beliefs and ideals saw their Club presidents being tortured, their fan base ridiculed and also all those unfair treatments from the ones with power and money. It was as if none of them matter, if anything genuinely was left out of that motto 'Mès Que un club', then it was the time to erase that too. It was unfortunately the time of the European Super League.

For all those fans, who genuinely believed that Barcelona will at least attempt to get back to its roots after Laporta victory, the hopes were mercilessly squashed. Laporta who before the election preached against the concept of Super League, joyfully accepted and dragged Barcelona into the messy setup. This is not the Barcelona we Know.

Lionel Messi was in sensational form against Heusca at home, something which has been a regularity in 2021. His two goals and one assiste helped Barcelona closed the gap at top to 4 points. With only four points adrift, we could all say 'There is a League'!

Enjoy this beutiful video of Lionel Messi in action against Huesca below:

Despite Bartomeu's attempt to distance himself from the leaking of Messi's contract to El Mundo journalist, everyone knows that he and Tusquets are behind it. The Catalan People don't want Messi around and it may be time for Messi to move away from Barcelona, the Club and the City.


Lionel Messi did what he does the best, answer his critics on the pitch. So it was natural to see Messi making the statement with a brilliant free kick on the Camp Nou pitch. That free-kick was some kind of a legend's stuff, there was one person lying on the ground, a fully packed wall, and a man on the line; in case he breaches all those defences. Breach he did, he had to.

But the build-up to the game was some of the toughest he had to face so far this season. He was hurt more or less about the manner in which the leak was made and the way it was portrayed, rather than the leak itself. The financials were never supposed to be fully secret, it will leak at some point. Especially if he leaves.

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.

Ungrateful Barcelona fans have been questioning Messi's performance so far this season. If what we saw against Real Madrid is an indication, he is all set to kick these doubters behind in coming weeks!


Is Lionel Messi back to his Best?

The more you listen to those half-informed Barcelona fans and Messi doubters on Twitter, you get convinced with every single post that these fans don't deserve him. They can't even see the impact he brings into the team as they can't think straight anything other than some random stats.

So we are told that Messi had a poor night against Real Madrid as he once again failed to get into the goal-scoring chart. And to make matters worse, he was neither in those assist charts. One cannot argue with dim-witted fools because they don't understand the beautiful games. How can you make these fools understand that without Messi's ball there was no equalizer? What Fati and Alba did from then was a mere formality. But they never understand!

Sevilla exposed the folly of limiting Lionel Messi in a false-9 role! Is practically possible to use the false-9 role in the 4-2-3-1 formation, Koeman's preferred choice?

Why Messi as False-9 Experiment should Stop Immediately!

So it all went back to square one for Barcelona, once again! The Euphoria of the Koeman fanboys on the social media lasted two matches, exactly two matches. Now it's been replaced by self-doubts across the internet. The match at times resembled how Barcelona played under Valverde, and that's making a lot of people nervous.

Still, the Koeman fanboys are full out in support. They understand that the match presented serious questions about the Dutchman's tactical acumen, but none of it matters. Right now, they are going after their favourite scapegoat - Lionel Messi. As I explained earlier, even if Messi was the one creating any kind of move, he will be always be blamed this season.

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.

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.

Sep 2, 2020

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!

Lionel Messi's impending departure has made the already chaotic situation of the Club even worse. Even if he is forced to stay, this will indefinitely damage the Club beyond repair.



A great love story which started with a Paper napkin, is ending more bizarrely, with another piece of paper - burofax. It appears that the term will be added soon to the famous English dictionaries! The burofax which Messi sent to express his desire to leave the club for free, has hurled Chaos in Barcelona. The Socios and their leaders appear to be unmoved, but fans across the World are terrified even thinking about it.

As we stand we are hearing too many versions leaked from the Club. One version says, that the Club has reminded him of his release clause of 700 Million and he is still a Barcelona fan. Another version says that the Club sent a reply saying that they want him to continue, and complete the career in Barcelona!

Lionel Messi Gifs against Bayern Munich

With the Bayern encounter just around the corner, this will definitely calm down a lot of nerves and instill hope among Barcelona fans. The situations could be different, but Messi remains the same and will be a handful come Friday.

Lionel Messi single-handedly destroyed Bayern that night, and if they come with full-on arrogance, he could make them pay again!

After a waiting period which threatened to extend to infinity, we finally saw the much anticipated Messi-Saurez-Griezmann trident clicking together. Is this the start of something beautiful?


Messi, Saurez, and Griezmann started to Click

Finally, the much-awaited, much-anticipated trident clicked together - Messi, Saurez, and Griezmann, popularly known as the MSG. Is this the start of something new or just another false hope? Only time will tell. How Barcelona's season will end will depend heavily on the answer to this!

There were glimpses of hope in some of the earlier matches. But it's fair to say, those were mere aberrations. This was in contrast looked like the real deal. The difference was the way they were linking and how easily they fit into the system.

The World in Barcelona has started once again spinning out of control following the break down of the latest Messi contract talks. Some say it's the usual bargaining tactic going on. But is that all in this? Is this just the tip of the iceberg?



Lionel Messi Exit Rumours! Is there More than that Meet the Eyes?

More than 24 hours have passed since the breaking of the news about the possibility of a Messi exit at end of 2021 season. As expected none from the Club nor anyone connected with the player had issued any statement to calm down the fans. Remember if this is not fixed up, he may leave this season!

But Is there more to the story than what is being reported. Are there some big shots behind Messi's move? You never know. In this article, we will look into what is behind Messi's latest move!

Jun 26, 2020

There will surely come a time when he breaks, but the Club and Management are willing to take that risk! Then do they have any other Choice?



With almost seven matches left to play in the League and then the coming Champions League campaign, it is clear that Barcelona's resources will be stretched to its physical limit. An ever-shrinking squad, which may sound death of all of Barcelona's ambition, long before the battle takes place.

In all these permutations and combination, there is a factor which will remain supreme - Lionel Messi. Even if the squad manages to stay fully fit and in top form, if he is unavailable, Barcelona's season will end there and then.

The constant veiled attack on Lionel Messi via Batromeu stooges suggest a complete breakdown of relationship between the President and the Captain. Is he trying to force Lionel Messi out of Barcelona.





The fight right now is between 'The President' and 'The Captain, and it seems Bartomeu has got the memo. His hurried statement following Lionel Messi's mindblowing Instagram post, suggest that. More worryingly it is now clear that there is an ongoing pitch battle between the Barcelona Board and the Players. Whichever way it ends, Barcelona could suffer heavily here!


The constant wielded attacks, the targetted campaigns which were exposed by 'BarcaGate' reveals a targetted campaign against players, especially the Captain. But what is Bartomeu's ulterior motive here? At this moment it appears to get Lionel Messi to leave the Club. It's all about power struggle; Bartomeu realizes that with Messi around he will never have absolute power!


Mar 31, 2020


Once again Bartomeu's horrible attempt to destroy Messi's cridibility fall flat on its face. Messi destroyed the management and they have no place to hide!





Every opportunity, it appears for the Board is a hail-mary opportunity to defame Lionel Messi in front of the whole world; and they are not ready to let go of any! So for the last few days, when the majority of the world was busy fighting the Corona scare, Bartomeu and his boys were out in open (through their media stooges) trying to defame the players.


The captain was their prime target! And all those Ronaldo fan-boys and the Messi-haters latched on to purposeful leaked done by the Board to defame Lionel Messi. Lest they forgot, they were dealing with a different Messi. 'A Messi who treats Instagram as a Sword'. And outcome the next Messi Instagram post and all his haters have been put to shame. That includes the current Board!

Despite all the stupid criticism leveled against him, one cannot blame Messi for not ever being ready for a fight with Real Madrid. But there was no fight on display at the Santiago Bernabeu. What is the Inside story on this?




If one thing which Lionel Messi is accused of stands the test of time, is his reluctance to put up a fight when things are going not going so well for his team. We have seen these many times him struggling to lift his team, as a Captain should do when the team is showing no spirit for a fight. We never saw his egging his teammates, like Puyol shouting at them and charging at the opposition; that's always been his fault line.


But when it comes to meeting Barcelona's arch-rival Real Madrid, we always see a different Lionel Messi. One who is ready for the fight from word go, one who lifts his team along with his performances. And most importantly, one who will scare his opposition to submission. That Messi was missing on Sunday Night. Why?
