Gracias Mourinho, winning at the Bernabeu has never been easier >> Read My Mind


Pique: 'It is very hard to win at the Bernabéu, even though you guys have got used to it, it is much harder to win than you think. We have implanted our style for several years and we always apply it. It doesn't matter where or who we play. I'm proud and happy to belong to this team. Very few teams can go to the Bernabéu and win like we have done. That makes us different'

Very few teams can go to the Bernabéu and win like we have done. That makes us different'

Schuster, former Real Madrid coach: 'Since the day of the incident with Casquero, I do not know what has happened with Pepe. It is something rare, something you cannot explain if you know him'

Schuster: 'When Pepe puts on the shirt, he is a different guy. Jose Mourinho knows how to take advantage of these things, but sometimes he goes too far'

Schuster: 'I do not need to say how good Pepe is, how a great person and professional he is, or that he has to be at Madrid. What he did was ugly, but this is all because we can watch everything that happens on the pitch. Migueli, Hierro, Ayala were players who hit hard in the past, but now we can watch everything'

Schuster: 'As for El Clasico in general, there are some things that are hard to understand. Carvalho had not been playing in a long time, Altintop perhaps does not improve the team's level and Pepe played again in midfield'

Schuster: 'Barca have been playing in the exact same way since I left Madrid, but Madrid try to change things in every Clasico. There is one team which plays always the same every year and another who tries the impossible to win. When you change so many things everytime, you are taking too many risks'

- Getting home after a hard week at work, then reading how the Madrid-based press is starting to doubt Mou55555inho's coward approach to football fills me with joy. I couldn't be happier.

Florentino Perez signed The Portuguese Whiner last season with one very clear objective: Break Barça's winning streak, whatever it took. Mr 5555pecial was given total control over new signings, staffing, training and even Madrid's sporting structure. He was even allowed to trash Madrid's history, betraying the club's very principles of direct attacking football in search for trophies.

The truth is, not much has changed since. Barça are current Spanish La Liga champions. And Champions League champions. And Club World Cup champions. And Spanish SuperCopa champions. And European Champions. Barça, our Barça, the best team in football history, have beaten Mourinho's gangsters 0-2, 1-3 and 1-2 at the Bernabeu in the process. Oopsy!!!

At this point, it seems clear Guardiola and his team have a clear psychological advantage. Whenever he faces Barça, Mou55inho The Whiner seems to suffer from mental Blaugrana diarrhea: A rare illness which forces the Portuguese manager to abuse defensive tactics, filthy tackles and vanish any shade of professionalism from his slaves - sorry, I meant players. This condition is specially evident in semi-human beings such as Pepe or Coentrao.

Fact: Since Guardiola took over as FCB coach back in 2008, he remains unbeaten at the Bernabeu with five wins and two draws. In your face. Kapoow.

Personally, I wish Florentino and his Portuguese Crybaby stay at Real Madrid for as long as possible. Beating Los Blancos has always been sweet but, since the Portuguese and Turkish invasion began at the Bernabeu, victory's taste is even sweeter.

GRACIAS MOURINHO: WINNING AT THE BERNABEU HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY, YOU COWARD!!!!!

Why Sergio Busquets' criticism of the Barcelona board is fully justified

Sergio Busquets is a player who prefers to stay away from the spotlight and do his talking on the pitch, ensuring Barca's engine continues to tick with his vision, positioning and charisma. However, in the rare occasions in which he decides to speak to the world's media, his words are loud and clear.

Following Barca's frustrating home defeat (1-3) against Real Madrid in the first leg of the SuperCopa, Busquets did not hesitate to demand much-needed new signings in order to reinforce the Blaugrana squad after the unexpected departure of Neymar:

"We try to improve the team regardless of the result of the Super Cup match. Those who come will be welcome. After Neymar's departure, we know that we need mostly offensive players, but we need to improve in all positions and aspects. With Neymar's departure evidently the team lost an attacking level, because you realise the footballer that is Neymar, there everyone will agree. About that we have Messi-dependence, in the…

Why the Barcelona board should be concerned about the #BartomeuOut Twitter campaign

Josep Maria Bartomeu is under huge scrutiny in recent times, and deservedly so. The humiliating 5-1 aggregate defeat against Real Madrid in the Spanish Supercopa was a terrible blow for Barca's morale but to think the club's problems are all a direct result of a poor result during preseason is far too simplistic.

Bartomeu, together with his predecessor and close friend Sandro Rosell, has brought Barcelona into a disheartening situation which not even the most pessimistic fans could have possibly predicted five years ago. Years of neglecting La Masia, countless signings that have struggled to make the starting lineup and the inability to connect with club members are only some of the reasons why the social media campaigns #BartomeuOut and #BartomeuDimiteYa have become a worldwide trend that show how concerning the current situation is.

We talked about the Bartomeu situation in much more depth, as well as El Clasico, Luis Suarez, Paulinho, Samper and Betis in our Episode 25 of …

Signing Paulinho for €40M is utter madness from Barcelona

Barcelona have signed Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande after paying €40 million for his transfer, as speculated in his release clause, according to multiple sources.

The Brazilian international midfielder, who would sign a four-year deal worth a reported €5M per season, would have completed a very unusual career path after being rejected by Tottenham Hotspurs in the English Premier League, then coming back to form in the Chinese Super League before landing at the Camp Nou at 29 years of age.

To say the signing of Paulinho is puzzling is a huge understatement. While it is disappointing to see the current Barcelona board struggling to bring world-class talent such as Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele to the Camp Nou, it is in fact much worse to see them having to pay the release clause of a player that has not been linked with any other major club in recent times.

Sure, it is clear that Paulinho has been a major contributor to the current leaders of the Chinese Super League but, h…

Philippe Coutinho's transfer request brings him closer to Barcelona

Philippe Coutinho has reportedly issued Liverpool with a transfer request, a move that can only be understood as the next step in his ongoing battle to join FC Barcelona during the current transfer window.

The Catalans are believed to have offered up to €100M for Coutinho but, given his importance within the Reds' squad, his current club has refused to allow his to leave for the current La Liga runners-up.

Both Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and club owners Fenway Sports Group have publicly explained that Coutinho will be part of the Liverpool squad for the upcoming season regardless of how much money Barcelona decide to offer to secure the Brazilian's services.

Coutinho, clearly unhappy about the latest developments, has decided to take matters a step further in a desperate attempt to agitate the current situation and force a transfer to the Camp Nou.

Personally, I believe that Coutinho would be a great addition to Barcelona given his undeniable quality, experience in a huge…
