Most players don't really look at their money management strategies which are handled by others especially the ones who let their families handle their money. The Spanish authorities know this very well because many players get into trouble when their taxes aren't in line with ever changing tax laws. But the public prosecutor is pushing to show messi was involved and send him to jail with his father.
------'

Leaked transcript....


At the beginning, the judge went through the complaint and detailed what was being accused of Messi. Then the first question came. It was direct. "Who is in charge of taxation and financial matters?"

-Messi: My family, my mum, my dad.

-Judge: When you sign a document, do you read its contents?

-M: No.

-J: Why do you sign it? Because they say to?

-M: I trust my dad, who is in charge of my things, and who tells me what I do.

Messi is then asked if he can speak louder. He nods. A number of companies are then listed which were supposedly created to avoid paying taxes in Spain. Messi is asked if he was a director, partner or shareholder in them. The player responds "No".

-J: With respect to the companies, what do you know?

-M: Even though I hear about all of that, I don't understand anything.

-J: I'm going to show you a contract regarding the cession of rights. Do you know about this contract?

-M: To be honest, I don't know. As much as I look [at it]... I don't know. I have signed things, but I never look at the contracts. I don't know what I sign.

not really an excuse to say you signed stuff without knowing. i think if this was the usa he would be in serious trouble as ignorance isnt a defense. not sure what will transpire in spain but this doesnt look good.

also given how much money he makes, why is his advisor trying to avoid taxes in the first place. what percent do they charge him?
We're looking at Florenzi to replace Alves because Bellerin might not be available for a good price. He's 25 and seems to be a good choice being a regular goal scorer including that crazy goal vs Barça.

I think we should look at getting an LB to put some pressure on alba. Wolfsburg's rodriguez might be a good option to have. He is solid at the back and its good in attack.
Ter Stegen just pulled a huge blunder for Germany , recall him have couple of shockers for Germany before too.

Poor guy.
He's prone to making errors every now and then. Some days he plays like he's the best gk on the planet and then there are days when he's below average.
He's definitely one of the best Gk with his feet but god sometimes he makes such horrible mistakes... Im hoping those get drilled out of him in his Future barca years
He complains all the time about not being our #1 keeper for all matches. Then he goes and pulls stunts like these. I wish he had more humility.
In Germany a number of people are wondering why Ter Stegen is number 2 behind Neuer. It realistically should be Kevin Trapp from PSG.

Ter Stegen has never been very convincing in the National team. But I guess this will happen if you do not play every game for Barca. Then again Bravo is clearly far more reliable.
Damn Nolito scored a sexy goal against Bosnia!
Still don't know why the f**k he isn't signed for Barcelona yet,

This one is on our f*****g board , Lucho wanted him and our board wasn't willing to pay his fair value to Celta instead they asked Celta to let him leave on loan in a middle of a season.
So it seems like Messi has a bad back injury and Suarez won't play in the copa until a few games in. I know messi wants to win an international cup for argentina but this might be a good thing for Barça. All our players need a rest considering that we have to win the treble again next year.
+2
So sad if its true.

messi badly wants copa i believe he would even trade one of his ucl medal with it;)

No way messi would want to miss it. i think both will play like cr7 did in 2014 WC

yesterday we saw cr7 jogging around he was also avoiding challenges maybe he was saving himself for upcoming euros. what do you think guys? i maybe wrong though.
I think the fact that his never won a major title with Argentina is what hurts him the most. Its bizarre because Argentina always looked like they had the potential but apart from Sabella, no other manager got the best out of Messi, in fact just Argentina as a whole team.

With Cr7, his 31 and its imo, the last major tournament where he will have the ability to play top football. In 2018 by Russia, weather he makes it or not, i doubt a 33 year old Ronaldo will make a major impact.
I think msn have one more ucl win in them. Maybe next year they'll do it again. I don't see Suarez playing at barca for more than next year. Yes it sounds like blasphemy to even say that Suarez is leaving but I have a feeling next year is their final best year. Barca might not be able to keep up with their wages.

If we are going to chase the treble again msn need to be rested. I'd like messi to be completely rested. I know that messi wants to win an international tournament and I'd love it if he did but for me Barça comes first. If he gets devastated about the copa and then comes back wanting to prove a point again. Boom! Third treble.

Argentina has done the best when they've played around messi. They have aguero and di maria who are superstars and seem to want to play on their own. Higuain has been hot and cold. Argentina's problems are not with offense but defense with players who don't belong on the same field as messi, Aguero and adm. Build a team around messi and let him do his thing. Argentina will win everything.
So two great cups coming up! Copa America and Euro Cup! Who's your favourites to win?

Mine:
Copa America: Argentina or Ecuador
Euro Cup: Croatia or Ukraine
CROATIA YES :D
+2
@C Ukraine and Croatia has had a soft spot in my heart for Europe haha and who can complain about bright yellow jerseys and checkered jerseys (used to love playing with Croatia on FIFA World Cup on my N64)
EURO!!! ENglanddd!!!
Copa América: Colombia!!
Copa : Argentina
Euro : France or Spain
+1
I'm with MesQuUnClub! I'm really hoping Messi experiences some success with Argentina. And I am actually rooting for France for the Euro. I would love to see them go far. There is so much talent at their disposal especially up top.

You have to love the explanations that have already begun to flow. Possession stats don't matter, useless shots matter, you play ugly when you have to, it was hard for the ref to see the offside. haha I suppose Ovrebo not spotting the Pique handball is okay now?

I was driving to work this morning and on the radio during newshour the lady said, "Cristiano Ronaldo led Real Madrid to a victory". I almost spit my coffee. LOL
Casemiro's like, "Yeah sure. He made the difference".
Benzema's like, "Yeah bro. Welcome to Real Madrid!"

Cute. Let it go in less than 24 hours when you guys keep harping about things that happened 3 or 4 or 7 years ago. Haha

You do know that you're going to get this video posted as a reply to anything you or any madrid fans complain about in the future? ;-p

BTW for all those that are planning or coming here to say that we're salty , please stop yourself from that embarrassment.

We won 4 trophies this season , including 2 major trophies which we retained , we made it to the QF of CL and lost to finalists.

We achieved this all while we were getting screwed over by the organization which we usually bribe.

So ya we don't have any reason to be salty as our team already have great season.

+3
i'll use what i always use for when people try to be salty with Arsenal lol

@Cloudst stop posting things that'll turn on the Madrid fans ;)

Nobody was offside. Let's put this to rest.

By the way, you have to love the all round positivity on FT. Imagine if last year, Pique had scored an offside goal against Juventus and Barca had won on penalties. FT would turn into a cesspool of UEFALONA comments from Arsenal to Madrid. haha I remember there was a Davi Alves challenge on Pogba and half of FT thought it was a sure shot penalty for Juve who got robbed by the ref.
+6
Silence on offside goal in FT assure me that we are most hated team in FT,lol.either way,am enjoying that attentions nowadays.
+2
Well, Atletico's goal was offside too. This was just down to another of Clattenburg's lengthy list of mistakes. The thing people should be more outraged is Pepe's antics. Yeah I've seen a few posts but that disgraceful behaviour is just disgusting.
+2
Lmaooo u sound bitter... when Barca won the final last season, our whole forum were in awe of MSN and couldn't stop wishing that we had talent like that...

Now our forum are congratulating Zizous RM cos no one gave them a look in 5 months ago
+6
Was Atlético's goal offside?
^No it wasn't J. He came from behind.
+2
Not even close.

@xgooner,he is saying if it would been barca,whole forums here scrutinized and analysis that offside goal and probably say barca bribes ref as it is the case most of time.
+3
I sound bitter? LOL How long have you been around? Your forum has one of the most active UEFALONA commenters. The moment Barca gets one favorable decision from the ref entire FT explodes. The hate on Barca here is phenomenal.

BTW Atletico's goal was offside? I didn't see that nor did any commentator say anything about that. I thought Carrasco came from behind Vasquez and Danilo.
+2
At least the replay angle i saw was offside. I might have to give it a second look. Griezzman was offside when the cross was made i think. Didnt give it a second look because the ref is that worthless Clattenberg.
Lol at Atletico goal offside. People will write anything for a couple likes, it seems
+1
^I was criticising the ref, not trying to discredit Atletico or Real, I don't care about either team anyway. But the ref, our EPL failure of a ref. I had to criticise him when the chance presents itself.
If it was offside, all FT would bash about it, so take that as it granted and don't bring up things that you are not sure about. LOL
@LGW , I wasn't paying attention and haven't seem the replay but what Griezzman being offside have to do with Atleti goal ? As far as I recall he didn't touch the ball in last moment of that move.
Oh please as if you guys dont bash La Liga refs. Lets face it, refs are worthless these days. I dont have to take a second look to bash one. Considering our season was wrecked by the likes of them.

@Malik
The Fox Soccer replay scene when the cross was made. Looked offside somehow.
Griezmann was 1.5 meters behind the line. I just saw the goal from the side. Carrasco was onside. Ramos, Pep, Danilo were all in front of him.
^I'll check it out in the morning. In the mean time, just leave me to bash Clattenberg for a while. Its going to be a while before i can bash refs.
^Exactly, Cuz We could win the CL if the same ref would give us that handball penatly against Atletico.
+1
Franky , there was huge raw of post about how Barca defeated injured Bayern team , I remember arguing about that for days after they semis but I assure you no one will talk about luck that Real load the end of the season

BTW I am curious if Real offside goal and pep dive two time will be remembered as long as these Busquets playacting against inter or that barca tie against Chelsea.
+2
Believe me, Pepe is a lost cause. Never rated him regardless of his performance. Not since the el classicos years ago. He's a condemned player anyway. Apart from Madrid fans or maybe Portuguese fans, I dont't believe anyone rates him.
LGW , what's the Griezzman connection ? Even if he was offside he never touched the ball so it doesn't matter if he was offside or not.

Juanfran revived the ball when he was onside , he crossed it to carrasco who was onside when he hit that ball.
Malik: Bayern team was injured but Messi wasn't in 2013. After the end of the season he had a prolonged injury because he exerted himself but that wasn't important. Chelsea got robbed but Barca didn't get robbed by the ref in 2010 vs Inter. Arsenal got robbed because of RVP sending off but Barca didn't get robbed by the disallowed Messi goal. LOL

The list is endless mate.
@MAlik, if you are like some jobless lads in your mom's basement that have plenty of free time to cut that portion of the game and make a youtube video and keep spreading it, it will be remembered. But I know you are not, so NO, no one will talk about it tomorrow.
Yeah, I saw Franky's video. Fox Soccer's angle only showed Marcelo, so I thought he was offside. My hate of refs got the better of me. Sorry for the confusion.
The differences here when pepe dove or acted as a clown,it's an individual thing,but if busi did it instead,then it's a team thing that our team filled with divers and actors,see the differences.

We're not being defensive here,been five years in this site and am saying something that I been used with it all these five years.
+1
@Blackstyle , I don't think even that will be enough :D they will first need to reach our level of success last decade and then the hate will start rolling.
Wow, you guys act like Barca is the only team that gets s**t from other FT members.
@M66 because Barca is love! (Go youtube Shrek is love on youtube...you're welcome)
Moe66: Oh come on. Let's not pretend that's its the same. Other teams also get s**t but please give me break if you don't think the internet would break if Barca had won off a bad ref decision.

And I'm loving the pin drop silence on the madrid forum about the offside goal. They're going on and on about how they "deserve" it because they took their chances and atletico didn't. Haha Barca winning their treble is like a man who works hard every day and builds his business to become a billionaire while madrid's ucl win is like that bum who scratches a lottery and becomes a millionaire.
+4
@SG, That's so 2000 and late.
