Ah I would be happy with it. Then again I am not a world class little Argentinian.

It looks like Madrid ain't going to win any major trophies this year the way they're playing.

Barcelona - Real 1-3 in yesterday's Copa Del Rey semi-final return.

It's been already last season that I found Barça less brilliant. Admittedly, in the Primera Division, they're still nearly invincible - but I think it also has something to do with the diminuishing quality of the opponents (except for Real and maybe Atlético Madrid).

Also, appearantly they do need a trainer after all. It's been said more than once that Barcelona didn't really need a trainer because they were so good. But since Vilanova's been out of the picture, their perfomance has lessened a lot.

I'm curious how they'll go about this...

Every ''best team in the world'' goes through bad days. This Barcelona are the greatest team ever to grace the pitch. They will be fine.

El Classico again on Saturday. I can see Barcelona smashing them in Madrid. Messi will play well.

Last few years Barca team was the best ever, they have noticeably declined, but still brilliant since they have been amazing these past few years. Real Madrid can beat Barcelona regularly now, when Barca beat Real Madrid 5-0, that was the best team ever.

That was in the season 2010-2011, right? That was a fantastic performance indeed.
Still, for me, one of the best football perfomances I've ever witnessed was the 2011 UEFA Champions League final between Barcelona and Manchester United. I don't think I've ever seen a team play such phenomenal football as that evening .

Ever since, I held Barça to that standard (which is probably unfair, because nearly impossible to reach again).

Varane's header was a thing of beauty.

Terrific young man with TONS of potential. Zidane is a genius for bringing this kid to R.M.
