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 Now it's been replaced by self-doubts across the internet.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'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!

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!

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.

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.

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?

Why Barcelona should look to move Lionel Messi from the right, and how it could improve their chnaces in Champions League!



 3 Reason Why Barcelona should not Use Messi on the Right!


Majority of the fans, who watched the performance against Bilbao are left wondering whether things have actually improved from our last season's Champions League exit? We felt toothless for most of the game. Even though the second half was a better affair, we failed to break down a resolute defense.


And that's the worry for Barcelona as this season was more or less is about Champions League. Athletic Bilbao gave us a clear glimpse of what awaits us at the later stage of the Champions League rounds. And our performance at San Mames doesn't inspire much confidence in that pursuit.


Feb 4, 2019



Lionel Messi produced a brilliant performance to save Barca from a defeat and with Atletico Madrid losing later, that draw has become extremely important. Barcelona instead of seeing their lead cut to three points, we have the lead increased to six points. And there is only one person to thank, Lionel Messi.

For the first time in his Career, Lionel Messi seems to be enjoying his Captaincy rather than it's burdening him.


Lionel Messi enjoying leading FC Barcelona

Captaincy has been like a "Crown of Thorn" for Lionel Messi for so long. It has given nothing other than pain and suffering to him in his role as National Captain of Argentinian Football Team.
