Adama set to rejoin Barcelona?

Interesting. I love the look of the big guy and enjoy him smashing through his markers but always get frustrated at his lack of end product.

As a Wolves fan I have to say I'm deeply disappointed that this is gonna happen, but I understand it.

Dani Alves with the goal. Guy's a machine!

4-1 for Barcelona early in the 2nd half despite Atletico opening the score early on.

Espanyol Barcelona was a good game in those 30 minutes I watched. 2-2 in the end Barca barely escape defeat.

Seems like you guys are getting it together. If nothing else Xavi at least looks like a good fit and something to build on with such a young team. Auba looked like a weird signing and Traore wasn’t even a sure starter for Wolves but so far they’ve been very good. Sometimes teams just need a shake up to boost the confidence and morale, those guys won’t be there long term if Barca wants to get back to their level but they don’t need to be. They are playing their role in helping the younger kids grow.

I've watched Barca a few times since Xavi has taken over, I like how he has them playing - particularly what he has Dani Alves doing. Traore is also proving a lot of people wrong, he doesn't seem to be the one-trick pony many people call him.

I'm really jealous of what Barcelona and juventus were able to do in the january market.

Will sound like a broken record but I have repeatedly said you have to have many factors working in your favor for a club to win. We have a President who is focused on both the financial & sporting aspects over a crook like Bartomeu with high aspirations for success for both criteria, a coach who understands the club & our playing style and players who buy into it. For me, Laporta was clear as he may be many things but he loves the club and is determined to see it reach those heights again...even without Leo

Xavi is a Cruyff & Pep disciple and I had zero doubts he would be the perfect coach for Barca as he was a coach on the pitch like Guardiola in his day. At Barca, the pivote understands the overall play much like a Point Guard in basketball - they are the orchestrator and Xavi is as addicted to it as Pep

More than goals & winning, cules want to be entertained and for that, we are in great hands for the foreseeable future

Dembele not being injured helps. It's easy to forget what a baller he is.

Of course, he hasn't been the key aspect of the revival under Xavi but he could be an important piece. More than not being injured, he looks to be part of the collective play in a way he wasn't earlier. 4 1/2 seasons into his time at Barca, he has never been consistent either in terms of being healthy or part of team dynamic. It feels different with him atm but he's also on an expiring contract

I whistled him at Camp Nou against Napoli and I contend he has deserved it, best thing he can do to reverse the fans sentiments is to perform like he did last night - so for that I am happy for him & he did look to show vital team spirit

Barragan's arm was in an unnatural position, moving towards the ball. For Alba & Busi, their arms were at their sides - not moving toward the ball

But agree, these handball rules are rarely called consistently/logically
