    Griezmann Double Pushes Barca through in the Copa Del Rey

    Griezmann Double Pushes Barca through in the Copa Del Rey

    We discuss the Copa game against Ibiza. Unfortunately, the state of the pitch, the opposing players constantly fouling, and the refs inability to give yellow cards led to a poor game. Barca gave up a goal early in the first half that really set the team back and allowed Ibiza to foul and waste time. However, two clinical strikes by Griezmann won the game from an assist by Frenkie and Jordi. Hopefully Griezmann can take this positive game and turn it into motivation as the team will need him firing on all cylinders to beat Valencia this weekend.

    A New Hope: Barca Win First Game under Setien

    A New Hope: Barca Win First Game under Setien

    We have a new coach! After the draw against Espanyol and failure in the SuperCopa semifinal, the board finally realized it was time for Ernesto Valverde to leave the club. We are appreciative of everything he offered and the 2 league and 1 Copa Del Rey titles he brought us. But clearly we needed a new coach. Setien seems to have really increased training intensity, while also deploying a much more cohesive offensive style than we had under Valverde. As a huge Cruyff fan, we all hope he can match a tiki-taka style we mastered under Pep. The game against Granada was a good start, with Messi ultimately scoring the game winner. It was only one game, but it does feel like we can see a positive change so far! Lets hope the team continues to grow and learn under new leadership.

    Watershed Moment? SuperCopa Failure Leaves Valverde's Job in Limbo

    Watershed Moment? SuperCopa Failure Leaves Valverde's Job in Limbo

    This week we discuss another semifinal loss in the SuperCopa against Atletico Madrid. Though Var did take away two goals and the team played very well for most of the first 75 minutes of the game, the continuing trend of Barca's defense failing showed itself again. Unfortunately, Atletico scored two goals after the 80th minute, costing us a chance at the final. The new element of this loss was the reports that the board had finally lost confidence in Valverde and that Xavi may be in line to take over as manager immediately.

    Barca A-Team Fail To Overcome Espanyol In Derby

    Barca A-Team Fail To Overcome Espanyol In Derby

    Happy 2020! Hopefully this will be a great year for FC Barcelona. Unfortunately, we began the year on a rocky start with a 2-2 draw at Espanyol. Frenkie De Jong had his worst game as a Barca player, getting the red card that dropped us to 10 men and helped Espanyol tie the game. Our defense continues to allow too many goals and unfortunately it has not gotten better as the season has progressed.

    Barca Back on Top: El Clasico and Victory Against Alaves

    Barca Back on Top: El Clasico and Victory Against Alaves

    This week we discuss the Clasico and win over Alaves. Unfortunately, technical difficulties caused us to miss the post-Clasico discussion, but we are back! We lacked a midfield in the 0-0 draw versus Madrid but were back to decent form in the 4-1 win against Alaves. With Madrid dropping points to Bilbao today, Barca are back to top of the table.

    FC Barcelona Relapse at Anoeta: Midfield Issues Persist

    FC Barcelona Relapse at Anoeta: Midfield Issues Persist

    We discuss the 2-2 draw at Anoeta versus Real Sociedad. Though it was certainly unfair that the referee called the penalty for La Real and not FC Barcelona, it is also true the FCB played poorly today. An uncharacteristically bad performance by Messi and a poor midfield lineup by Valverde helped La Real win the posession battle and look more dangerous than Barca today. Though we couldn't get the win, we hope the team can get back together and show up in El Clasico on Wednesday against Real Madrid.
