Why Barcelona MUST celebrate if they win La Liga 0

Posted on May 17, 2014 by admin

I have been reading reports that FC Barcelona are not planning any big celebrations for this season, even though they have their destiny in their own hands and just need to win today to retain the title of champions of Spain. But this is ridiculous.

In fact, the Catalans should possibly view this trophy as the best, because it was the hardest to come by. With all the problems and twists in this landmark season, for Barcelona to finish it as champions, ahead of the two Champions League finalists from Madrid, would be pretty amazing.

Barcelona boosted for cup final by Ronaldo injury 0

FC Barcelona have enough problems on their hands without having to deal with Cristiano Ronaldo, so Tata Martino and his players will have received the injury update from Carlo Ancelotti with open arms. Ronaldo is still out of action with what is being reported as tendonitis or a muscular problem in the thigh.

Andres Iniesta and other Barcelona players have refused, publicly at least, to accept that Real Madrid will be significantly weakened by this, as they have the likes of Isco, Di Mari and Morata who could take his place, but they must be pretty glad of the news really.

Martino NOT leaving Barcelona! No matter what! 0

A lot of the press in Spain was suggesting that the Barcelona boss Tata Martino was on borrowed time and the only thing that would save him was a victory in El Clasico at the Bernabeu on Sunday. Others were saying that it was Tata Martino’s own decision to leave at the end of the season because of the immense pressure of the job, but both manager and club have rubbished these claims today, as reported by Mundo Deportivo.

Barcelona’s last 16 away form has GOT to improve!! 0

Posted on February 18, 2014 by admin

It might surprise you to know that Barcelona have actually got a pretty poor record for this stage of the Champions League. It is not that bad, of course, because we have not failed to reach the semi-final stage since 2007 and have won the competition twice in that time. But in four of the last five years, Barcelona have failed to win their away leg at the last 16 phase.

Barcelona go full strength to ensure place in Copa Del Rey final 0

Posted on February 11, 2014 by admin

The fact that Barcelona have not lost a game by more than one goal all season is a pretty incredible stat and should give Tata Martino and his players a great deal of confidence for tomorrow. But the Barca boss is taking no chances and is set to name his strongest possible starting XI.

The second leg of the Copa Del Rey semi-final against Real Sociedad should see the new manager book a place in the final of a major competition at the first time of asking. I’m not including the Spanish Supercup victory over Atletico Madrid because Martino was not in charge to qualify for that.

Martino insists Barcelona ready to bounce back from defeat 0

Posted on February 04, 2014 by admin

It must be difficult being the manager of FC Barcelona. You do not get a lot of credit for winning, even when your players play brilliantly and score a hatful of goals. But one defeat and the club is in crisis, whether the defeat be a narrow or undeserved one or not.

Tata Martino has faced the Spanish press today ahead of the Copa Del Rey semi-final against Real Sociedad and as well as deflecting more questions about the Neymar transfer, he has had to field questions about the so-called crisis of losing to Valencia at the weekend.

WOW – Barcelona hit by claims of lies over Neymar transfer! 57m or 95m? 0

It seems as if FC Barcelona are under concerted attack at the minute. The latest comes under the guise of a suggestion that the Catalan club has falsified it’s accounts and misled it’s shareholders over the amount of money it cost to bring the Brazilian superstar Neymar to the Camp Nou last summer.

Spanish newspaper El Mundo has published the claims, seemingly gathered from leaked court documents given to the authorities by Barcelona executives. The paper claims that the real cost of Neymar’s transfer could be as high as 95 million euros, with some payments apparently hidden in things like payments for scouting work done by Neymar’s father, payments for friendlies between Santos and Barca and many other things that are not necessarily anything to do with the transfer..

Barcelona injury boost on Neymar ankle and Messi fitness 0

Barcelona traveled to play Getafe in the second leg of the Copa Del Rey clash last night and Tata Martino could have been forgiven for sending out a team of youngsters and fringe players as they were already ahead 4-0 from the first leg at the Nou Camp.

At the end of the game, which Barca won comfortably 2-0, the manager may have wished that he had. Halfway through the first half, the Brazilian superstar Neymar, just back from a spell on the sidelines with illness, went over on his right ankle and slow motion replays did not look good.
