I'm sifting trough Barcastuffs twitter, posting tid-bits.

Messi practicing dribbling against traffic cones:

"For the first time in history, Barcelona have started the season with 4 wins and 0 goals conceded #fcblive [via mrchip]"

That's really astonishing considering how terrible Barcas defense has been in the past seasons. Hopefully a sing of things to come.

Busquets Jr. showing how well he knows the sensei:

"Messi was only not directly involved, with goal or assist, in 1 of Barcelona's 7 goals so far this season"
Why df isn't open yet?

Surprise surprise !!!!!!!

That video makes you realize that how lucky messi is been for not picking up a major injury after all those Tie's .

I honestly don't understand how that case wasn't thrown out. Freedom of speech & freedom of press should've protected that unless they said something clearly slanderous. Expressing an opinion that they played like hyenas doesn't count as slander.
@Jraty , Freedom of speech & freedom of press ? Catalans don't consider themselves free in their own country .

Real Madrid's debt is reported at €605m, a rise of 11% since last year despite of making €60m from ucl. Di Maria's sale will not be reported until next year so that more or less nullifies the increase. I'd like to see where our debt stands now after the recent spending. We are definitely not going to add more debt through player transfers through next two seasons. Did barca announce its accounts for this year yet? Last year our debt was at around €330m if I remember correctly. If we have a successful season, it is mostly going to be positive in terms of financial position of the club because of the transfer ban.
What? I thought Real Madrids debt dropped? Weird.


For Barcelona:

"The 2013/14 season also witnessed a reduction in the net debt by 44 million euros, meaning that since the new Board took over, this figure has decreased by 143 million, and as of June 30 of this year now stands at 287 million euros, while four years ago it was 431 million."

http://www.fcbarcelona.com/club/detail/article/club-record-income-of-530-million-euros

Suarez' transfer will add to that debt for the next year, but as you said, the transfer ban will compensate.
Yup franky accounts of last fiscal year is already announced , you're right , our debt in 2012/2013 books was €331m which is reduced by significant 44m and our debts stands 2013/2014 books stand at €287m , this 44m reduction is in line with board strategy of reducing debt by 40m per year .

Positive effect of transfer ban ? though its likely but i doubt that will be significant , especially when you consider we already exceeded our budget of 50m net spending per season and already exhaust half of next season transfer budget , with increase in players valuation we will incur more amortization cost with perhaps a little decrease in wage bill .

I have said this before that this board have done good work managing the finances but at expense of ethics & values , with plan of new stadium we will enter in difficult period financially and i hope we find a stable management team that will work wonders in both finance while not harming club image .

@JRaty , from where you got that Suarez bit ? as far as i understand we didn't borrow any thing on that 75m net spending which we did this season .
Real issue for Madrid is that out of this €605m debt €361m is short term loan which fails due within one year , though they do have short term loan assets ( monies owe's by other clubs and parties ) which currently stands at €267m , which leaves them €94m net which they have to pay within a year .

BTW calm your tits guys , wizard perez have every thing under control , apparently Fly Emirate is close on striking a deal with Madrid over naming rights , Stadium name in considerations are “Fly Emirates Santiago Bernabeu, Fly Emirates Bernabeu or Bernabeu Fly Emirates."

and also don't forget about them shirt sales ;)

BTW any news over camp nou naming right ?
Malik,

So you're saying that Barcelona had that 75m all in assets? Even then, it'll be a 75m expenditure that'll eat in to the operating income for the coming year.
so...anybody getting FIFA 15?
I call it Ultimate Team 15 :p that's the only reason I get it. But I reckon now that they brough the create a tournament mode, me and my friends will be playing lots. And yes, I pre-ordered it.
What console? ?...if its ps4 add me: ARC201 :)
Yep it's ps4 and will do my friend. If you don't mind writing your psn on my wall, there's still about a week left and I don't go on my ps4 unless I'm playing fifa :p.

"Asked specifically whether James suits the 4-3-3 shape favoured by coach Carlo Ancelotti as well as Di Maria did, Perez appeared to not think the question entirely relevant.

"I do not know how James plays," he said. "But he had a great World Cup and we wanted him here.""

http://www.espnfc.com/real-madrid/story/2044070/real-madrid-florentino-perez-james-rodriguez-agenda-angel-di-maria-xabi-alonso

Not sure if joking...

Another snipet:

"A new plan to reduce the number of youth teams Madrid runs was also under consideration, Perez revealed.

"The objective is to reduce the teams in the 'cantera,'" he said. "We are looking into Castilla and Madrid C being merged, to reduce the youth teams by one.""

I know better than to post anything but praise when it comes to Real over at the Real Madrid forum.

Jray I think you could have posted this over there. It is an interesting talking point. I dont like it. reduce our youth acadamy? OKAY PEREZ/board. Maybe he is playing stupid on the James question.

Apart from Kroos, everything that happened this summer was kind of a nightmare for myself and other fans.
+1
Danny,

Maybe, but it's not worth the risk. On the internet it's easy to see what I posted as trolling just because I've got Barcelona next to my name, so I try to stick to the Barca forum so as not to unnecessarily stir trouble.
+3
This is pretty terrible coming from the club President. Even if he doesn't go through with this, not exactly a morale boost for the youth.

@JRaty just remove (Barca) next to your name we all already know you're a Barca fan this will help take away the sterio types when going to other forums. Hope this is helpful ;)
Thought you guys would like this..:)

LOL it's like those video game glitches! :P
So Brandao gets 6 months ban for his premeditated assault on Motta.
He totally deserves it, what a f*****g coward. Deserves worse honestly
So um im deciding to go Pro+ Member...I just have a question and you guys don't have to answer. How much do you guys pay? It says I pick and I have no idea what to pick. What would a fair amount be?
I don't know. Just don't be cheap! ;)
It's all up to you. I myself was given my membership because I helped FT kick off as a mod and co-created dreamfooty. But most PRO+ people donate something like 10€ a year, perhaps even less. I doubt it's a serious source of income for the admins. So, you choose!
^Now I understand how you always finish on the top of everybody on DF no mater what. hahaha.
You just frustrated me J. tsk tsk..lol
When I joined df jeroen was already at 100+ points while everyone else was at 0. Sounds fair enough!;)
Yup Franky,yup...Life is unfair even on FT,sigh...haha
Thanks for your help! And I'm not a big DF player, I just pick players that I like and see where that gets me. The reason I want to go Pro is it's about time I give something back to Footytube besides my amazingly intelligent contribution ;). I have been here long enough and hopefully my contribution helps them keep this site alive!!
Lol, well I love winning at games, but only if I do it fairly. The one time in dreamfooty where I did something some people considered cheating (I was responsible for players' pricing) is where I bought a player shortly before I upped his price for the next transfer window, where I had to re-price all players that needed an increase. I didn't consider that cheating at all though. Because I get stalked when it comes to DF, some people noticed and complained. I then 'honourably' laid down my moderating tasks here, of which I had had enough anyway. The fact something trivial as that caused a bunch of people to brand me a cheater (to phrase it lightly) upset me greatly, and from then on I pretty much gave up on FootyTube. Not that it's on the same scale, but I now really pity politicians, CEOs and all kinds of authoritative people who mean well and then get taken down publicly for some f*****g detail.

That was 2 or 3 years ago though, now I'm just participating with only as much information as you guys. Besides, I've always liked helping people out whenever they have questions. So if you ever want advise in DF, feel free to message me.
LOL Jereon , Don't mean to call you a cheat or something , but what you have described seems like a cheating , I know lots of people stalk your team ( which include me to some extent ) but what you described is somewhat similar of Insider trading , which is strictly illegal .

And i strongly disagree with your sympathy towards Politician and CEO's , 99% of the s**t they get blamed for happens because of their greed and love for money .

P.S - Can we call you " Wolf of DF " ? :p
