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!

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 off 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?

With every passing hour, it is becoming clear that the Board's claim of innocence in the I3 Ventures Controversy will not hold water. It is time for Lionel Messi to take revenge on them on behalf of them and all the fans. Will he?




Barcelona as a Club is moving into further chaos with every passing minute following the unprecedented I3 Ventures Controversy. The attempt by the Club management to push things under the carpet with a rather diplomatic statement was kind of 'Dead on Arrival'. The fact that moments after issuing the statement, the entire I34 Ventures team (including the web presence) went to hiding negated anything that was said in the statement.


The current explanation from the Board is that they severed all the ties with the agency the moment they became aware of the issue. Will anyone believe any of this? We may not be such big fools as they imagine us to be! With every passing moment, Bartomeu seems to get into a deeper hole than he earlier was!

Lionel Messi became the first player from a team sport to win the prestigous Laureus Award, often dubbed as the Oscars of the Sporting World.




Lionel Messi, Captain of Barcelona became the first player from a team sport to win the Prestigious Laureus Sportsman of the Year Award. He shared the award with Formula One Champion, Lewis Hamilton. The very fact that he was able to hold his fort along with Hamilton, makes it's quite an achievement.


This is sixth time lucky for Lionel Messi who was nominated five times before this year. Coming from a Team Sport, it becomes extremely difficult to win the award as the individual sports players have an unfair advantage. Laureus has always been considered as being unfair to Team Sports!

The Guy who was scoring for fun, even after missing months of action suddenly is struggling to find the back of the net. Will this hurt Barcelona in the long run?




Lionel Messi has been struggling for goals since the turn of the new year, a stark contrast to how he finished 2019. Gone are those days where every free-kick from the little maestro was heading to the top corner of the goal. He has scored thrice under Setién, which in normal cases is a great feat. But the Lionel Messi is not your normal Super Hero!


Lionel Messi still leads the Pichichi race having scored 14 goals so far. This in itself is an almighty feat as he missed a sizeable part of the season. But if Setién's Barcelona is to achieve greater success, they want their talismanic leader in fine form. Let's look at the factors which are hindering Messi currently.


Feb 10, 2020



Lionel Messi may not have scored last night, but his performance warranted another ten out of ten. It's not a normal thing to have one guy assist all three goals - a hat-trick of assists.

Lionel Messi lashing out on Eric Abidal may have upset some of the fans, but he was within the right to defend himself and the squad. Eric Abidal should be sacked now!




It appears there cannot be any death of news when it comes to the Barcelona's State of Affair this season. We all thought this week will be dominated by the two crucial away matches, that could define the future for Setién's Barcelona.


It didn't happen that way! Now, there is a full-blown battle between the Captain and the Technical director - Messi and Eric Abidal. The former teammates have gone against each other with statements, even though one could argue that Messi took it personally.

Lionel Messi may not have been uopto his usual standard, but was critical in everything Barcelona did. His two assist for Ansu Fati makes him the leading assist maker in the League. So he is the only one who is leading the Goalscorer ranking and Assit maker ranking currently.

Ernesto Valverde himself may have lost count of the number of times Lionel Messi and Ter Stegan have saved him this season. Valverde might be offering secret prayers to these two; nothing else explains him still having this Job!




So, Barcelona won against Atletico; nothing new there. It was a routine victory. Happened exactly the same way we have faced the majority of the top teams this season, especially away from home. We were second best in practically everything, barring two - having the Best Player in the World and also the Best Goal Keeper in the World.


Some of those saves, Ter Stegan has done were literally mind-blowing. It bordered the thin line between fantasy and reality. And then, Messi! What else you could say? He did what he always does, win Barcelona the match!



As all the pre-ceremony rumours indicated, Lionel Messi picked up his Sixth Ballon D'Or Award at Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, France.




Barcelona and Argentinian Captain, Lionel Messi was crowned the 2019 Ballon D'Or Award winner in the Gala Night held at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. With this victory, he has moved one ahead of his arch-rival Ronaldo in the number of Ballon d'Or. He has now won a record sixth Ballon D'Or and is the leader of the pack now.


This Ballon D'Or comes after almost four years. His last victory was in 2015, a year Barcelona won the treble. Liverpool's Vin Dijk came second and Cristiano Ronaldo came third (for reasons unknown).

There is a feeling among many fans that the injury to Lionel Messi could be much worse than what is portrayed. Otherwise why there is so much secrecy around it?



Lionel Messi Rumoured to be Sidelined for Two Months with the Latest Injury? #Barca #Messi

It's strange, Lionel Messi who rarely is out with injury, have failed to complete a single match in this season! He rarely used to miss matches, and now it becoming extremely difficult to be fit for the match. Some see it as a sign of the good things coming to an end!


May be there is a pinch of truth in that. Remember, both Messi and Ronaldo are 32 and 34 respectively. It's been quite fascinating how these two managed to keep them fit so far, but maybe time is taking a toll on both of them.

Lionel Messi won the inaugural FIFPro Best Men's player 2019 beating tough competition from Van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo. This was the first individual award he has won since 2015, something he himself has been upset about.



Lionel Messi crowned FIFPro Best Men's Player

Barcelona's Captain was crowned the inaugural FIFPro Best Male player of the World by FIFA last night in an event in Milan. Messi who has been really unlucky to have missed in last few season's was indeed very happy having it won after a long hiatus of four years.


Lionel Messi was nothing short of sensational in last season and the choice of him seems absolutely perfect. With this award, Messi has now won Six FIFA Best player awards, most by any players.

Many of the players have starte to back valverde and want him as the Boss, but Lionel Messi should understand that it's a plot against him.




What drives a club's ambition going into a new season defines the future of that Club; at least in the short term! For Barcelona a season back, it was all about winning that elusive Champions League trophy, which evaded them after a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Rome. Interesting, that was the same city where Barcelona's Golden team's dream run started.


In a not so distant past, Barcelona was a not so feared opponent when it came to European competition. Before Ronaldinho inspired Barcelona defeated Arsenal in Paris, we only won that competition once. Since then we won it three more times, making a tally of five in total.

The deabte of Messi as GOAT takes a different turn after the 4-0 humiliation by Liverpool. Is he still good to be considered as 'Greatest of All Time'?




Lionel Messi is rightly considered as one of the 'Greatest of All Time' to have played this beautiful game. But in the backdrop of another lackluster performance from his team and himself in Europe, do we need to re-think on considering him as one of the Greatest.


Before Ronaldo fans jump in, this is not a comparison between him and Ronaldo. It is a comparison of Messi to the greatest of the game - Pele, Maradona, Cryuff, Stefano, Platini, Beckenbauer, etc.

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?

Despite the historic blunders which have really hurt Barcelona, the President appears reluctant to fire the Manager, Valverde.




Lionell Messi would be the only person who could save this Barcelona side from the current predicament. A predicament which has been brought upon by the actions of an unimaginative, uninspiring, and an average Manager! Ernesto Valverde has proven in a second season in succession that he is not fit to hold the reins at Barcelona.


Like Arsene Wenger recently said, 'No Manager can win a game for their team, it's the players who have to do that. But he can lose the game for them'. Somehow it appears that Wenger had Valverde in mind when making such a historic footballing statement.

Lionel Messi did what he normally does, scored a hat-trick, created tons of chances and destroyed the opposition. Nothing else needs to be explained!
