It’s hard to walk tall when you’re small

It’s hard to walk tall when you’re small


It was a very emotional week for all FCB fans, including myself. What can I say, eh? Dani Alves in his interview said that even though Bayern Munich have deserved their place in the final, in his opinion Barcelona is still a better team. Is it?

We got smashed, demolished. Yeah sure, it was 7-0. No one ever got beaten so bad in the semi finals of UCL. True, but does it matter whether we lost 4-3 or 7-0? Defeat is still a defeat, but the question is if the team is willing to bounce back and take it as a lesson, very painful but still a lesson to improve. Despite the UCL I still think that the season ending was relatively good. We have secured our victory in the league before the end of the season. We have lost the chance to win Copa Del Rey to a Real Madrid, and Jose Maurinho who showed us once again that he knows how to play against Barcelona.

It is time for changes. Strong defense, support in the attack which should not be focuses only on Messi. Neymar is coming  Good, let’s make him another Eto’o Ronaldinho or Henry. And for god’s sake, Tito, you have not matured as a manager to be in charge of a team like FCB. You may have a great opportunities waiting for you in another team in Europe, however, it was too early for you to take over  Blaugrana

So, after departing from Málaga Airport we headed to Palma De Mallorca, to spend 4 days on the beach, pretty exhausted from quite active stay in Andalusia.
