All over for Barcelona

April 29, 2008

The 1-0 result against Manchester United means that Barcelona is certain to remain with put a trophy this season. Despite playing well for much of the match, the team simply didn’t have the stamina to put the goal in the back of the net, as a 1-1 draw was all they needed.

Manchester played well too, and there is no doubt that they deserve to go through, but this will come as a further blow to Barça which must be planning some big changes over the summer.

    Samuel Eto´o spends more time talking junk than playing soccer. He said some harsh things against his club, when he is the #1 responsible for Barca´s exit. See, he gets paid a handsome sum of money to do score goals. End of story. He missed 3 important chances to score at Nou Camp. Yes, I know scoring is no easy task, but the man´s a professional. Let´s assume it´s ok for him to miss those opportunities… fine, but SHUT UP and do your job!!

    Certainly Eto’o has been variable during his time at the club, but to blame everything on him seems a bit harsh.

    Yes, that’s what he is paid for and if I had 10 percent of what he is paid I’d have more money than I could spend.

    But the fact is that there is something rotten at the core of Barça. Why is it that their morale is so low.

    Personally I trace it back to Henk Ten Cate departing, I think that Frank Rijkaard replied on him much more than anyone has admitted.
