Neymar who? We got La Masia!!! >> Read My Mind


Neymar: 'I don't know if FC Barcelona are unbeatable, but they are the best team in the world. During the Club World Cup final, we learned what it is to play football'

Neymar: 'I don't know if FC Barcelona are unbeatable, but they are the best team in the world. During the Club World Cup final, we learned what it is to play football'

Neymar: 'What we experienced in this match, we will take as a lesson. Today, FC Barcelona taught us how to play football. Now it doesn't matter what we did or didn't do. What matters is we got here going through many battles and challenges and got to be the second best team in the world'

Neymar: 'Guardiola said that they lost a lot until they started winning. This is what Santos want. We lost the Club World Cup final, but maybe in a year we can come back and be champions'

- Humble words from the young Brazilian striker who was desperate to sign for Real Madrid a couple of months ago. It feels as if the Pineapple Boy has finally realised that, if he wants to come to Europe and win titles, Barça is his best destination. Sorry mate, too late.

The bottom line is: I really don't think that Neymar would improve our current squad. And I'm not just talking about his not-necessary DIVA attitude off the pitch, I'm also considering how he performed against a true football team: He contributed NOTHING to his team in their most important match of the year. Does that remind you of anybody? Cristinita Ronalda, perhaps?

As with every new Brazilian talent, the media is trying to hype the player, as if a new superstar had been born. They've done it many times before and, to be honest, I don't buy it anymore - anyone here remember Robinho??

Do you know what I'm actually excited about? Seeing THIAGO, CUENCA, DEULOFEU, MONTOYA develop into the next La Masia winning generation. Seeing BUSQUETS, PIQUE and PEDRO step up to the challenge when Xavi or Puyol retire.

Not another Brazilian fashion icon who would cost us a fortune.

NEYMAR WHO??? WE HAVE BETTER PROSPECTS AT LA MASIA!!!!!!!!
