Josep Sunyol: Barcelona's Martyr President

Josep Sunyol: Barcelona's Martyr President

83 years ago the history of FC Barcelona changed in fundamental ways. It wasn't because of a star signing, a new stadium opening or a trophy win. Instead, it was the death of President Josep Sunyol on August 6th, 1936 that reinforced the club's Catalan identity. Today we're talking tragedy, war and a man that shouldn't be forgotten.

What if Antoine Griezmann is the personality Barcelona need?

What if Antoine Griezmann is the personality Barcelona need?

Last year Barcelona were on the verge of the treble. La Liga was wrapped up and only a second leg against Liverpool and wins in both the Champions League and Copa del Rey finals would secure this incarnation of the Blaugrana immortality. It would have given the oft-criticized Ernesto Valverde a level of immunity shared by Luis Enrique after his treble-winning season in 2015. Instead, of that immortality, Gerard Piqué reminded us all of the cloud that currently hangs over the current squad. "I think that on a mental level," the Catalan said, "some people were affected by what happened in Rome because we had it very recently. With the first goal, which was very fast, unconsciously you see the image of Rome." Quotes like that and moments of Anfield remind us that Barcelona players, for all the pressure and fame that come with being at a top club and collecting pay checks that reflect professional value, are still just flesh and blood.

Griezmann signing proves 'Mes Que Un Club' no longer applies

Griezmann signing proves 'Mes Que Un Club' no longer applies

The unthinkable has finally happened, Cules - Antoine Griezmann is now officially a Blaugrana after president Bartomeu decided to pay Atletico Madrid the €120M stipulated on his buyout clause - a deal which not even our friends at Betting Bonus Codes, who now offer a bonus when signing up , would have seen coming this time last year. The French international has dominated the Blaugrana transfer window yet again this summer. Despite Barca’s efforts to bring him to the Camp Nou last season, the French international made the very public decision to stay at Atlético Madrid instead - by airing a farcical documentary in the process. When questioned about the now infamous 'La Decision' documentary during his first press conference at the Camp Nou, Griezmann explained : "I have done various bad things in the past. But I have never regretted anything because they're things I wanted to do at the time. I didn't play with either of the two sides. In the end, Barcelona a

La Masia: Louie Barry

La Masia: Louie Barry

Frenkie de Jong isn't the only signing for Barcelona this summer that the Catalan club stole right out from the under the noses of PSG. Since the player won't be playing in the first team anytime soon, the exact happenings of how 16-year-old Louie Barry got from West Brom to Barcelona may never be known. The third English-born player (behind Gary Lineker and Marcus McGuane) that could play for the Barcelona first team is clearly a player that the Barcelona brass was keen to bring to La Masia. Sources say that Barry was in Paris on Thursday and underwent his PSG medical before heading to Spain on Saturday to sign for Barcelona instead. Many of the major top clubs in Europe were hot on the trail of the youngster after his accolades with the English youth squads. Louie Barry was born in Birmingham on June 21, 2003. Instead of Wolverhampton, Aston Villa or even Birmingham City, 6-year-old Barry started his West Midlands footballing journey at West Brom Albion. Last season, h

Three Finals on a Sunday: Barcelona at the Women's World Cup and Copa América

Three Finals on a Sunday: Barcelona at the Women's World Cup and Copa América

Sunday, July 7th will be a football day for the ages and Culés should have their eye on at least two of three major finals going on that day. Up first is the Women's World Cup final where Lieke Martens and Stefanie van der Gragt will play as underdogs to the United States. This is the first Women's World Cup final for the team that surprised all of Europe by winning the Euros back in 2017 with Martens as the star player. The Dutch squad got to the final by beating Sweden 1-0 in extra time after a goal from Manchester United's Jackie Groenen. The recent history between the two squads heavily favors the U.S. The U.S have defeated the Dutch six consecutive times, though the two haven't met since 2016, before the generation of Martens and van der Gragt broke through. The Netherlands were probably the underdog against Sweden as well, but Sweden's reluctance to attack made their semifinal a slog and if the Dutch learned anything from the affair, it's to be not a

What does a Neymar return say about Barcelona's plan?

What does a Neymar return say about Barcelona's plan?

The sh**show that has been the rumor mill of a Neymar return to Barcelona from PSG presents a number of issues on the surface, but might also be a worrying sign of the current sporting plan over the next few years. Let's start with a contrarian idea; success in modern football takes great players in their peaks, with this season's Ajax being a rare exception to that rule. One of the critiques of the Neymar and Antoine Griezmann transfers is that it seems irrational to pay such huge fees for players in their late 20s. Barcelona only has Lionel Messi for another five years at most, and the idea that a player(s) not even 25 can replace so much production is naive. If Ousmane Dembélé, Riqui Puig, Frenkie de Jong and Arthur are the future of the club, history tells us that Barcelona will still need some talent at peak footballing ages to bridge the gap. All that said, the fatigue of transfer buzz makes a fan base that had the greatest player ever come up through their academy r
