    3 Points but Not Much Else: FC Barcelona Defeat La Real

    3 Points but Not Much Else: FC Barcelona Defeat La Real

    Thanks to a late Leo Messi penalty, FC Barcelona were able to beat Real Sociedad at Camp Nou. Unfortunately Arthur's injury pregame leaves the already thin squad even thinner. The team did not show up with the fire and passion we expected after a rather embarassing Clasico loss. Hopefully Setien can continue to try and bring the team together to perform as the season hits the critical stage in La Liga and Champions League.

    Real Madrid Wanted It More: FC Barcelona Lose El Clasico

    Real Madrid Wanted It More: FC Barcelona Lose El Clasico

    We discuss the 2-0 loss at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid. Unfortunately, our players had a horrendous second half and were outperformed by a Madrid team that showed a higher level of passion and intensity. The continued trend of a lacking midfield and weak attack showed themselves again as Barca scored 0 goals across the two Clasicos in La Liga this season. Though it seems gloomy, we have 12 games left in the league and we are only 1 point behind Madrid. Hopefully, Setien will continue to make his mark on the team and fight for the two remaining trophies.

    Champions League: Griezmann's Away Goal Helps Barca Secure a Draw in Naples

    Champions League: Griezmann's Away Goal Helps Barca Secure a Draw in Naples

    Barca began the Round of 16 in the Champions League with a 1-1 draw at Napoli. Though Napoli was able to score in the first half, Barca came out energized in the second half as Griezmann slotted home a goal from an assist by Semedo. Vidal was a highlight during the game until he picked up an unfortunate (and deserved) red card near the end of the game. While an away goal is huge, having Busquets/Vidal miss the next game due to card suspensions and Pique's injury certainly do leave the team with some issues for the next game.

    Magnificent Messi Scores Four as Barca Beat Eibar!

    Magnificent Messi Scores Four as Barca Beat Eibar!

    MESSI! After his longest goal drought in 7 years, four games, Messi comes back with 4 wonderful goals against Eibar. As we have the Champions League match against Napoli as well as El Clasico in the next 8 days, it was wonderful to see FC Barcelona keep a clean sheet and score 5 goals at the Camp Nou. We hope to see a continued trend of improvement in the coming months. Though the team has defensive and midfield (and finishing) issues, Setien overall has created an atmosphere where Barca fans can be hopeful about the direction the team is going (on the field, the Board is a whole different story.....)

    Barca-Betis Clash: First League Away Victory since December for FC Barcelona

    Barca-Betis Clash: First League Away Victory since December for FC Barcelona

    This week we discuss the Barca clash against Betis in Seville. The game was highly entertaining as 2 red cards and 5 overall goals were involved with Messi providing 3 unreal assists. Led by Frenkie De Jong seeming to return to his best form, the team appears to be continuously improving under Setien. Hopefully the string of good play will help us forget the interpersonal clash between players/staff and the Copa loss to Bilbao.

    Déjà vu: Bilbao Strike Late at San Mames to End Barca's Copa Hopes

    Déjà vu: Bilbao Strike Late at San Mames to End Barca's Copa Hopes

    Again Bilbao were able to beat FC Barcelona at San Mames as they knocked Barca out of the Copa Del Rey today. We discuss whether the big issue was with Setien's lineup or the Barca players performance. Piling on top of the game, issues between Sporting Director Abidal and Messi as well as issues with Messi and Ter Stegen have added to the stress. Hopefully Setien will prove that he is the man who can help us get through these issues and challenge for a trophy this season.
