    Man, i feel stupid as a fan with all the circus. Our club is getting quite a rep as one doing stupid deals and i have to say that i don’t have too many points against. Sigh, Rosell has achieved what very few of other could and that is to show our club is worse possible light.

      Regardless of the outcome – sale, no sale, loan, whatever – this just makes the Club look like a circus. It makes it look unprofessional and less than it is.

      And this is all in follow up to the President of the club already telling the world that the club is essentially broke.

      What privately held business ever announces to the world that it is broke? Even if it were true (which it’s not) why even say it?

      And now this nonsense after the Fabergas proceedings.

      And he’s said that it will take “Years! Years!” to sort our finances. So vote for me next time out. Look at all the good I’ve done!

      Being Indian, i know this modus operandi quite well. Our politicians have been following it for years. And they have screwed up the country more thoroughly than even a enemy would have done. I fear that Rosell is going the same route and if he continues, i fear for all those who love what this club is.

    Looool. Hleb and Caceres out first…

  13. August 25, 2010

    lol damn with all this Ibra to Milan bullshit going on I have never cared more about a friendly then now. Meaning it is the first time ever I care about a friendly. Fuck it, Rosell is a genius!!! lol

    Huge roar for Ibra.

  17. Euler

    This is going to be interesting. JDS is probably going to play in the holding position.

    It seems like that may be the position Pep envisions for JDS. Or at least he wants to see how he can play there as a more classic 4.

    Not to be an ass, but couldn’t ibra starting be an audition for Milan as well as his ‘last chance’ for barca? Note: I REALLY want him to stay just offering an alternate possibility.

    Guardiola is such a gentlemen. He did not come out by himself but with Tito.

  24. August 25, 2010


    Puyol still sounds very young to me:))

  25. August 25, 2010

    Wow, this thread seems to have exploded. There are more twists(tweets) in this thread than there were in some of the Hitchcock movies I have seen.
    In any case I’m cheering for our Gangsta Ninja Swede to come good in this season. Go Ibra!!!

    What a reception for Ronnie. Camp Nou has not forgotten him. It felt so nice!

  37. August 25, 2010

    sweet to see Dinho do a tour of the pitch and get a standing ovation all the way round. (though he is probably too tired to play now :p )

    • blitzen
      August 25, 2010

      I’m at work and can’t watch–how does he look? Fat?

    • August 25, 2010

      lol nah i was just kidding. he looks happy

  38. August 25, 2010

    Laporta…Ronaldinho…Those were good times. Feels like ages ago already 🙂

  39. August 25, 2010

      There’s a bunch of different sopcasts there. Just pick the one that works for you (unfortunately I don’t use sopcast, so I can’t post one)

    Hey guys, quick question

    I’m planning on going to the game against Hercules (would be my first in the Camp Nou and a dream come true) but the liga fixtures aren’t sure until one week from kick off..

    So when could the game be? Saterday an sunday right? Not monday cause there’s CL tuesday.
    Spain plays on the 7th, would the Liga take this in to accoutn and not plan the game on friday the 10th considering Spain=barça to some extent?
    Are there any games possible at friday in la liga to start with (not sure and can’t seem to find an answer quickly)?

    thanks in advance!

    Weather Ibra stays or goes, I hope everyone has a good season injury-wise..

    • Ciaran
      August 25, 2010

      Over the past few seasons there hasn’t been Friday matches. You can be safe to assume that it will be on the Saturday.

    • Mast
      August 26, 2010

      thanks Ciaran

    I agree with the other comment:

    You there’s something wrong when Euler, Ramzi comment so much…

  47. Kari
    August 25, 2010

    Madness, Eklavya. Madness.

    That’s why I’ve taken my Hector Pills and stayed away.

    Just enjoy your vacation and ignore it.

  48. Helge
    August 25, 2010

    So, this MIGHT be Zlatan’s last match for Barca. I wish him the very best!

  49. Helge
    August 25, 2010

    What did the Ibra banner which ended on “Pasta … Italiana” say?

  50. August 25, 2010

    I think it said Ibra don’t change tomato ….. (i imagine a catalan dish) for italian pasta
