    Wow, not only does it show a monumental fudge up in management, there is probably an awful lot of fraud too.

    Just reading the first paragraph - a working model of veterans on long contracts/young on shorter ones, easy to see why they’re in such a mess.

    ha ha, "players that represent the future of the club", their kit should be orange jump suits, the entire club is a crime scene

    I'd love Pjanic, he's not as good as Lamela, but has a lot of the same traits

    Paratici time

    I think we need to close off 2-3 main buys then I expect priorities will be offloading plus picking up young potential like we used to

    Barca isn't the only one in trouble

    The offloading might be the problem. Think some might be loaned.

    Barca is really taking a fudging bath.

    Just sold Griezmann back to Atleti for (supposedly) €40M after buying him for €125M?

    He's one of Barca's highest paid players and they still at 130% of wage cap.

    Does the wage cap include non playing staff?

    Barca have played the moral card over Real for decades, but clearly they’ve been no better.

    I’ve long felt they were worse as they were knowingly at it in private.

    They were known to be involved with cycling dope peddler Fuentes in the 2000’s too.

    Not the “more than a club” they claim to be.

    Imagine going from an attack of Messi, Griezmann and Suarez to Martin Braithwaite and Luuk de Jong in a couple of seasons.

    Do they still not have Pedri and Fati who are massively rated ?

    The question really is how bad is this implosion going to be?

    Have they finished the selling, or will they be more to come?

    What happens to results? at best they are probably 3rd, but that could easily be worst depending on how they adapt on the seasons other clubs have, Barca not in CL?
