The Barça B Roundup: Reserves break winless run

Three matches without win were more than enough for high-aiming Barça B. The FC Barcelona reserves managed to rediscover their scoring boots after three goalless matches and after dominating Catalan neighbors Sabadell for the best part of ninety minutes on Saturday afternoon, the Blaugranas got a comfortable win. The win was the first for Gerard

Review: Victory versus vicious Valencia

Games against Valencia at the Mestalla always seem to cause trouble for Luis Enrique’s Barcelona. Since Lucho took charge of the Blaugrana in the 2014/15 season, Barcelona have scraped two wins and drawn once at the 55,000 seater stadium, and every time, despite the frequent change of managers, Los Che have always gone into the games in an aggressive

Preview: Valencia CF v FC Barcelona

La Liga is back in action this weekend as FC Barcelona travel to Valencia on Saturday for a game at Mestalla Stadium. The last match these two teams played was during Barça’s awful April. Valencia walked off Camp Nou as winners with the result 2-1. Barça have come back excellently from the international break with two 4-0

The Barça B Roundup: A dull draw at Buñol

Barcelona B are obviously going through a rough patch. For yet another week, Gerard López’s men have failed to win, extending their winless (and also scoreless) streak to three matches. The Blaugranas at least got a point from their visit to Atlético Levante, after two successive defeats that nobody really saw coming. As Gerard López

Review: Barça put four past Deportivo La Coruña

Luis Enrique’s men took to the field this afternoon to make a point- that they could manage to come back from an international break and still play at the highest level. And that is exactly what they achieved.

Preview: FC Barcelona v Deportivo La Coruña

After two weeks with another international break, Deportivo La Coruña will visit the Camp Nou on Saturday. One might remember the last meeting in April, when FC Barcelona rocked the Riazor and cruised to an easy 8-0 win in a Luis Suárez master show. Or one might remember how the teams have drawn the last two meetings at the

Should Umtiti get more time?

Disclaimer right away: This article is by no means a criticism of Javier Mascherano. He is a living legend at the club and one of my favorite players ever. The six years he’s been a member of the team have been fruitful – 18 trophies – and he’s been a great contributor to winning. He’s

Our Love-Hate relationship with Lucho

I love Luis Enrique. Love is a strong word, but I am sure this is it. How can I not? The man won a treble his first season and followed that up with a double last season. He’s successfully put together possibly the most lethal attack in the history of the game, but that does

Stop blaming Ter Stegen

There has been a lot of finger-pointing going around since our loss to Celta Vigo. A lot of it has come Marc-André Ter Stegen’s way. And sure, he made yet another crucial mistake that cost us points, on a weekend where Real Madrid had dropped points and had presented us an opportunity to make up

The Barça B Roundup: Reserves lose again

Once again, Barcelona B have ended the weekend feeling hard done by their result. This time round, the feeling is that the team managed to lose three points that seemed destined to become theirs. Away at neighbors Gavà, the reserves did everything right, but once again they couldn’t get the goal they needed. The effectiveness
