    Let us pray Bartomeu does the right thing tomorrow

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Messi does want out but could also see him using this as a power play to force Bartomeu out.

    Maybe early on his career but I think over the last 3-4 years he’s started throwing his weight around.

    Other than the 6 counts of tax fraud and using close to $1M of club money to run social media campaigns against his opponents he’s got a track record of doing the right thing so I’m sure it’ll all go down pretty smoothly.

    But honestly, who fucking cares? If Bartomeu stays, any coach is just another sacrifice.

    It's a joke and a clown show. All respect to him as a player, but what exactly has he done as a manager that is noteworthy? And like you said, it doesn't matter. News needs to break on elections or it's all bullshit band aids on bullet holes.

    should be good for frenkie at the very least

    nothing matters until the board is gone, but i think its a good thing that koeman has enough juice at the club to not automatically be replaced. having 4 managers in 3 years isnt going to be helpful even with a trainwreck board gone

    plus i would rather have pimienta continue doing his positive work with the b team instead of being a lame duck for a year

    Koeman does this thing where he just arbitrarily decides that he doesn’t like a certain player and pretty much freezes them out from the team. If I had I had to guess who that might be, I would say it will be either Ansu Fati or Trincao.

    I may be mis-remembering but didn’t Thiago want to come back a few years ago? Why we ever sold him in the first place makes no damn sense.

    he was 5th in the midfield pecking order and pep came calling

    and its not like rakitic was a scrub as a replacement

    plenty of things higher on the pecking order in terms of mismanagement than the thiago move in 2013

    For real, despite his last two seasons, what a fucking legend. 2 Golden Boots won while Leo and Ronaldo we're but in their prime. #3 scorer in Barca history.

    Because his managerial career has been mediocre at best and is outright underwhelming for a position like this. Does anyone seriously see this hire as anything more than a bridge until Xavi is ready or they’re able to get Pep to return? I get his history as a player but how much slack will that get him?

    idk id rather have an outsider with fresh eyes come in to try to fix things instead of leaving it in the hands of the people that fucked it up in the first place

    even if that outsider isnt the absolute most qualified person to take care of it

    Would an Everton fan sharing their experience suffice? Just because he's a Madrid fan doesn't mean he's wrong.

    I honestly could not give a fuck about his one year at Everton, or his time at Ajax, or Valencia or any of his other stops. I car that he's coming in and cutting all the dead weight that needs cutting. I don't care if he's only here a year or two, as long as the rebuild starts.

    I don't really think Xavi could come in and have the balls to cut all his friends.

    Mentally preparing for the worst (Messi leaves, Bartomeu stays), hoping for the best (Bartomeu out, Messi stays)

    Even Messi leaves and the socis revolt and force Bartomeu out might be ok

    The club is broken tbh. Even the way they’ve been cleaning house is disgraceful. Bartomeu hiding behind Koeman who is just a part-time lackey.
