Yikes!! we are being linked with laurent blanc
Borussia M'gladbach with the greatest comeback in Europa League?
They lost 1-0 at home and were down 2-0 (3-0 on aggregate) in first 29 minutes of the away leg. Then they scored 4 goals in last 46 minutes to win 4-3 on aggregate against Fiorentina.

Liverpool vs Dortmund.
Leicester sacked Ranieri, has to be one of the worse decision in football's history, goes on to show how most likely club owners precious this sport.

Absolute madness. Wth
Absolute madness from the players who let him down this season...they have to take the blame for miserable season so far.

From owners point of view they obviously know its not easy to come back-up if they get relegated. Clubs like Blackburn Rovers , Leeds etc won PL and got relegated are struggling even now to for promotion back to PL
Tough luck on Tinkerman. His a good boss but the PL results have been so bad that I suppose with 3 months left of the league, the ownership needs to do something fast. They players have been a huge let down this season but I can't blame the owners. They spend money in the summer, then spend money in January but nothing changed.

the writing was on the wall with the sale of Kante, what the owners were thinking ? they wanted to make money and keep the team floating, the guy was a beast in the midfield.
its not as mad as it seems.... relegation aint no joke and with Swansea and hull suddenly performing better, Leicester and crystal palace looking likely to drop.

Clubs dropping also has huge effect on them financially and sometimes it takes years for them to actually return.. especially if the players decide to leave. Look at QPR for example.

Its heartbreaking to see Ranieri leave like this but its not really the wrong decision.
They could have at least waited till 2nd leg of Champions league. After everything he's done for them, it's the least he deserves.
Mr. Messi...take a bow!

A MUST !!!
Anybody watch the Sevilla game? Honestly they are a monster under Sampaoli. They have made La Liga proud and were unlucky not to win by 2 or 3 goals.
I did. Sevilla players did seem to get too complacent towards the end. Sevilla look to be in a better shape to play the big guns of Europe.
However, I am glad that Leicester are still alive in this tie.
I do hope Leicester knocks them out somehow in the second leg.
^How come? If they knock Sevilla out, they could get the confidence they had from beating the big english teams last season to win the BPL. I would not want to face either of those teams. Honestly, I don't think there is a point hoping to face a particular team. All the teams that make the QF of the CL are going to be worthy contenders this season.
^ Tbh UCl is actually where they've done well compared to the PL, where they haven't hit the heights (although they did beat City 4-2). I just want another PL team to go through and I wonder if a team can win UCL and get relegated at the same time, lol!
WTF?! Madrid had a match today. I had no idea! Anyway, Valencia beat them. Munir assisted one of the goals :)
And Ramos studded on his foot inside penalty area which ref couldn't able to see !
Barca has given me and many us so many magic moments over the last 30+ years that not qualifying to the CL this year will not the end of the world ( they still have a slight chance ). They've delivered a brand of football we all thought possible only in playstation or Xbox. If they go totally trophy-less this year, I will still be a very happy fan. Come on folks, these guys work their butts off, day in and day out to mesmerize us ( go watch some highlights ), if they screw up one trophy ( I understand it is an prestigious one ), I'm totally ok and the sun will still rise from the east. There are tons of prestigious teams out there that never won CL. We are a team in transition , as someone mentioned, we went from the best midfield in the world to a virtually trying to build one from scratch, new guys are still adjusting and will never ever be like the old guards.
I'm not trying to set the bar low, just trying to look at the big picture, I'm very grateful for all the pure magic moments these guys have enabled us to enjoy, that said, let's see what can be done to make the magic last longer.
I am not a big fan of the word "transition" which basically means rebuilding. That term just triggers something in my mind. I guess being a american football fan as well makes me feel upset when I hear that term as that means there will be trophy drought for few years. But the good thing about barca is that they are a power house so I don't think there will be long draught, if any.
Being fans, it's understandable that we do not want any trophy droughts. But trophy droughts are healthy and necessary for clubs. I mean the standard is ridiculously high at Barca. Too high in my opinion because it is so easy to be disappointed and it's even much easier for people to criticize this team because maintaining the level they have for as many seasons as they have is insane. I think a few seasons without winning some silverware would spark the motivation in some players to conitnue to work hard and show it on the pitch. It would also encourage our board to dish out the money for the necessary players (Thiago *cough cough*) and HOPEFULLY some players from La Masia get called to the first team because the academy is one of the things I love most about this club.
City vs Monaco.

Nobody is defending. Lol
the way the game should be, were you not entertained?

Also Europe now knows how horrible the refs in Spain are...
nah , i disagree , i think the refereeing was great overall,the "bad" decisions were more just 50/50 situations imo
What the hell was that? The man was just insane.
Aguero booking for Dive was wrong...what else was horrible Moe66?
I think the ref went a little yellow card happy. The first two yellows Monaco players got shouldn't have been yellow. They were way too early in the game and it was only their first or second foul.
@Bazinga, I wasn't just speaking about City but Monaco was well. Not to mention, he just pulls a yellow on Zabaleta for no reason.
Well atleast non of the goals were controversial...Referees making mistake only for yellow cards is gold these days.

People tell me, Enrique got us the treble so I should not be ungrateful to him.

But, He was never the reason we got the treble. You could have replaced him with Tata Martino and would still have won a treble.

The reason we won the treble was we had same world class core players but younger. We had influential Xavi and Dani Alves. Xavi used to be a substitution player. Can you believe it? Our players only needed motivation to succeed. And, they found it in that season and the source was not Enrique. With new Suarez in the team and Messi bonding very well with Neymar and Suarez, the front three started playing with fun. And with the goals galore coming from MSN, rest of the team found their mojo back too.

Many people even in the treble season were saying that our midfield has become worst in years. It was simply because of Enrique's clueless tactics. Xavi was influential but more as a leader rather than a player. Opponents did not yet had figured out how to contain MSN and also the midfield was bit better than now. With Dani Alves in the team, MSN found ball quite often. And the goals followed. But, The midfield kept deteriorating and opponents now have plan to isolate MSN and not care about the hopeless midfield which neither can support the defense nor the offense.

Enrique could never motivate the core players because he can provide nothing new to them as they have seen, done and won so much before him. His authoritarian personality doesn't help when he is dealing with intelligent individuals who already know stuff that he knows. He is more suited for being an Army Captain. Unless you display high intelligence on par or above the palyers or are very spirited and loved, they won't follow you. Intelligent people do not like following less intelligent or less charismatic people. In fact, no human follows anyone who he considers lesser.

I am not saying Enrique didn't do anything. He indeed did. But, what he did could have been done by another good manager too. He doesn't have that extra to deal with players like Messi, Busquetes, Pique, Iniesta, Suarez and Neymar. How would you motivate players of such stature? Why would Messi listen to him when he insists in choosing Gomes week in week out when he clearly is unfit. Enrique hardly talks to or even looks at the eyes of many players in the team. He is cold, distant and clueless. All the traits are unhelpful.

He should go ASAP! I would say him 'Thank You' for doing the job he was supposed to do and Bye Bye.

You really think Tata Martino could have won a treble with the same team?...
I never saw any criticisms of Enrique when he started changing tactics to move away from Tiki Taka because other managers figured out how to defend and counter. Under Tata Martino, we had no identity, but under Enrique we had some unpredictability. MSN can attack in any style you wish and Enrique learned how utilize that. Enrique's stubbornness probably stems from the fact that he was actually figuring out how to get the best out of the team the first two seasons, but now we have new players likes Gomes, Denis Suarez, and Umititi that need to be integrated. Combine that with an aging Iniesta that needs to be kept rested and a very inconsistent midfield with Gomes, I think many people would fail to keep up with the likes of the best in Europe. Enrique is a good manager. I think you're assuming a lot when you say "Enrique hardly talks or even looks at the eyes of many players in the team." Yes he is being stubborn and making mistakes. But he is taking credit for all of it which a good manager does. Yes we had a 4-0 asskicking, but to blame Enrique for that entirely, I think, is unfair. These players are self-motivated. They don't show up to practice or matches feeling apathetic and then the manager gives this magic speech that motivates everyone. They should do that for themselves and for each other. No manager in the world should be expected to come to Barcelona and have to motivate players like Messi, Neymar, Suarez, Busquets, Pique, Alba, or anyone else. Players who have won everything at club level several times should WAKE up feeling motivated to kick ass. Without that, there is no player (no matter how talented) that will perform to their best ability.
I hope Enrique leaves, but not because he can't achieve anymore more with this team, but because he has already achieved everything he can. He brought us another treble and a double. Getting a fresh face is healthy especially because we are in a transition as a club. A new midfield is pretty much a new team for Barca and I still believe this team has enough talent to win a treble. Perhaps, what we need is a new face to bring some new tactics to this club that will bring back the unpredictability.
+2
^ Agreed.

Enrique has struggled but this does not entirely fall on him. Replacing the quality this team has lost was always going to be hard and even for the next manager, it won't be an easy task. I really see this coming back into it next season, two new MFs, bring in proper back-ups for the attack and a quality RB. If the MF starts firing, MSN will start firing.
