Sad to see the decline of Barca.

£130m on Dembele who has played 80 times in 4 years on £350k p/w

£140m on Coutinho who they loaned to Bayern for nothing £400k p/w

£120m Greizmann £400k p/w who they sold back to Madrid for £40m

£30m on a bank loan

 £85m was mortgaged on future incomes. 

£500m on Messi over 5 years who they have lost for £0


Fuck em, with bells on.

Let’s hope Liverpool, City, Man U & Chelsea soon go the same way. 

Man U don't have the same potential issue as the others. Their owners don't exactly pump money in like Roman does. Probably best then that they stick with the glazers. :)

Blimey, I wasn't aware of those wages. Lunacy.

They need this reawakening.

It's all incredibly Political, capital P, of course.

Here's the problem with modern football, throughout my life, Barca have been a great club, always worth watching. Cruyff, Romario, Stoichkov, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho etc. At no point did anyone have a clue what Cruyff was earning, or give a fuck.

I'd say Barcelona are the 2nd most exciting, glamorous and charismatic sports club there has ever been.People expect the best players to be at that stature of club and expect them to be well paid.

Agents for you. Barca are a great club but for the last 8 or so years have been ran by mercenaries. They’ve contributed to the crippling effects of the smaller clubs and are still trying to break away. 
As soon as Ferran Soriano & Txiki Begiristain left the writing was on the wall.

If you were one of the best managers in the world at a club with the best ever club side with arguably the greatest player of all time would you walk if all was good behind the scenes?

FWIW Ronaldo Ronaldinho Xavi Puyol Iniesta & Messi are some of the greatest I’ve ever seen and they made you want to watch Spanish football but it’s been coming for a long time.

If Wonga were still about Barca would have used them to buy a player

That's correct.

Those old players you talk of would have been highly paid ,and whilst we didn't know their wages, would they have been so ridiculously high as they are now, in relative terms?

Money runs out at some point, whoever is paying it out.

It's happened to us, and numerous others, not sure why anyone should feel any differently just because its Barcelona or any other huge club.

Especially if some of that reputation has been gained on the back of paying over the odds for donkeys years.

Fair play rules etc there to help prevent this, but they don't seem to work or aren't implemented properly.

Take away the day trippers from the likes of Barca, united Madrid and they’d have similar attendances to the massives. Hope they all go bust. Fuck them.

We all know such day trippers, hangers-on etc are only there for the good times. Don't suppose they're bothered as long as there are enough to fill the stadium and buy the merchandise.
