Luis Figo makes Judas look like a saint >> Read My Mind


Figo: 'I feel priviledged to have played for both Barça and Madrid'

Figo: 'The rivalry between Barça and Madrid is very intense, which gives football its unique flavour. I felt passionate about both teams'

Figo: 'At this moment in time, it's hard to tell whether Barça is better than Madrid or not. All I can say is that it's a pleasure to the current FC Barcelona team play. They have lots of individual talent and are a brilliant, talented team as a whole'

Figo: 'Cristiano Ronaldo or Leo Messi? Well, I'd have both in my team. They are two great, very different players'


- Man, I hate this Figo guy with a passion. Just hearing his name sends shivers up my spine. What an absolute, terrible *&$p;*%^$% (You can fill in the gap yourself here, because I don't particularly like swearing!)

For those of you who have been following Barçablog from the very beginning, you already know my personal story in regards to The Portuguese Pig, explained in my 'No respect for players who leave Barça for Real Madrid' article.

Long story cut short:

My younger brother had a Figo 7 Barça top that we had to burn after he left us for Madrid's dirty cash despite being our captain. He clearly didn't understand what the Catalan flag in his armband meant. When you play for FC Barcelona, you don't just join a team to score goals and win. As you know, 'Barça es mes que un club'. It is a feeling, a love for a country, a respect for your supporters and many more aspects that can't be measured with goal-scoring or assists stats. Figo's move to Madrid has to be the biggest betrayal in football history. I have no respect for him.

And there you have it, in a nutshell. Since that shameful betrayal back in the year 2000, whenever Figo The Pig appears on TV, I feel like throwing bricks at it. If he's on the radio, I kick it. If I saw him walking down the street... I hope we will never know, as I wouldn't like to be locked up in jail!

What makes it even more frustrating is the fact that, a whole 12 years later, the guy is still not getting what made Culés so annoyed with him in the first place. Figo The Pig is still using the terms 'Barça' and 'Madrid' in the same sentence, putting them both at the same level, talking about both clubs as equals, unable to decide which one he actually prefers. STOP playing one against the other and make your mind up!



The Portuguese Judas is so blind that he can not even see how Leo Messi is miles ahead of Cristinita Ronaldo in virtually every aspect of the game. Yes, of course I am aware both players are extraordinary in terms of goalscoring abilities but, when you look at their individual perfomances in big matches, the fact there is even a comparison between them is laughable: Messi is A MILLION miles ahead of Madrid's Calvin Klein's supermodel. For me, the debate is pointless.

I am fully aware years have passed and those who weren't born Blaugrana may interpret this hatred as an extremely alien, maybe even unjustified feeling. Many have tried to use the 'Come on man, get over it, it's only a game' argument to play down the importance. 

To those trying to convince me, I can answer with just THREE words:


LUIS FIGO: THE BIGGEST TRAITOR IN SPORTS HISTORY!!!!!!!

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…

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…
