    A friend and mine's Europe trip coincides with us being in Madrid on the 1st of September. Will get to see Atletico v Eibar :DD.

    Pretty sure it's the only top level game that coincides with the date we'll be in a city.

    Either way, super excited.

    Peter Lim fires Mateu Alemany. Now Marcelino is considering resigning in protest.

    Pique's FC Andorra are quickly ascending in Spanish football lol

    They were in 5th division last year, gained promotion to 4th division, however Reus (3rd div) have been relegated due to financial problems and Andorra have basically bought the right to take Reus' place. So now FC Andorra will play in the Segunda B which features, amongst others, Barca B :D
    They have some former Barça youth players in their team I believe, also they're managed by former Barça midfielder Gabri

    They could also draw Barça in the Copa.

    So Hazard went fat? Would be a bit funny if he had one of his lazy seasons again. Not that losing some kgs before the season starts is all that difficult if he really wants to.

    La Real's stadium remodel looks to be about done. Atmosphere there should improve a ton now that the track is gone. Nice to see another "new" stadium in La Liga.

    I go ahead and assume Messi's injury is bs. Barca coaching complaining how this trip exhausts the players but its good for economic reasons then Messi gets "injured" shortly after.

    I hope you're right, but I suspect your not. While I don't think the injury is that serious, it's a big deal because it means that he misses the entire preseason.

    Not a problem at all imo. He quietly trains in Barcelona then comes off the bench against Athletic.

    Yup, makes sense to me. They should use him smartly this year more than ever. No CD-R games until the semis. No pointlessly keeping him on when the game is over. He needs to be ready in may/june

    Oof already can tell this team will be frustrating. What do the players see in VAlverde.

    Dembele is a mixed bag as usual.

    De Jong has been the best player in preseason, really hope Valverde trusts him and makes him a starter.

    Suarez looks like the best striker in the world again.

    I honestly have no clue how Valverde's going to start the season. You've got Busquets, Frenkie, Rakitic, Arthur, Vidal, Alena and maybe even Sergi Roberto (will Valverde use him as a midfielder now that Wague has been promoted to the first team?) and Rafinha, all competing for 3 spots.
    I could see him going to a 4-4-2 with Dembele usually often injured and Suarez needing a rest, playing Messi and Griez up front. But then you still have Coutinho, what about him? I think unless he improves drastically, it's going to be a tough season for him.

    Suarez
    Greiz-Messi-Dembele
    De Jong-Busquets
    Alba-Umititi-Pique-Semedo
    GOAT

    That should be the lineup but it won't

    I’d like Frenkie, Arthur and Puig as a trio, with Frenkie playing the 6. Valverde won’t ever do this, though. He’ll likely play with Busquets, Frenkie and Rakitic. Maybe even swap Rakitic for Coutinho at times.

    Busquets is a legend, but Frenkie is better already.
