It must already be the start of the silly season. As Arsenal fans cross their fingers, again and hope for a top four finish, an FA cup triumph, and a productive and busy summer in the transfer market, FC Barcelona have given us all an early laugh. And not only is the talk of a [...]
Why Arsenal will not buy Fabregas by Blaz Hello fellow Gooners. Let me start this piece with a quick thank you to the staff of Justarsenal.com-my T-shirt came, the one I won for getting the result/striker and minute right (by the way, why dont we play that anymore?). So, Thanks you guys :-)! And now [.
It can't be much fun for Cesc Fabregas. The former Arsenal man finally agreed to a dream return to his boyhood club Barcelona a few years ago, something the Arsenal fans grudgingly understood despite the hole it left in the Gunners team, but it has been anything but a dream since then. The nightmare continues [.
This is a subject close to the hearts of Arsenal fans and one that never seems to quite go away. I am talking about the possible return of the Gunners' former captain and one of the most loved players of recent years, Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish international midfielder was a big loss when he rejoined [.
Latest reports emerging in Catalan media outlets suggest Barca reaching an agreement with Mats Hummels. The Borussia Dortmund defender, Hummels has been in Barca's radar for sometime. He has constantly emerged as the preferred choice for Barca fans in every poll. His lack of pace did worry some, but there is no doubt about his ability.
Barcelona is reported to have shown interest in Newcastle United keeper Tim Krul as a potential replacement for Pinto. It is expected that Barca would not offer Pinto an extension and he will play his last match against Atletico in Camp Nou.

Chelsea's €40m gem to be part of a new look Barcelona next season? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
I personally cannot remember a day when Chelsea's David Luiz wasn't been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, and today is of no exception. Barcelona is again the suitor, with Spanish newspaper 'Sport.
Currently, Pep Guardiola is one of greatest managers on the planet, if not the greatest. He dominated world soccer, taking Barcelona to new heights and possibly turning them into one of the most dominant and greatest teams the world has ever seen. Now, he has left Barcelona and looks to carry on his dominance with Bayern Munich.
Atletico Madrid defeated Elche to take a four-point lead over Barcelona, who ended their losing streak with a win over Athletic Bilbao. Real Madrid trail their city neighbours by six points, but have a game in hand as their match with Valladolid was postponed ahead of their Champions League semi-final with Bayern Munich this Wednesday.
Strange things happen in Football, not one many, many times. So I would say that Barca still have a glimmer hope of retaining their La Liga crown coming next week. But whatever small hope Barca have about La Liga could be decided at the end of next week. As of now, Atletico Madrid stands six point clear of Real Madrid(who have a game in hand) and four point clear of Barcelona.

It has been a season of discontent for both Lionel Messi and Barcelona this season as both have endured on and off the field issues.
Messi is reportedly upset with Barca for not backing him over his tax situation this summer and his camp feel that the reason is picking up so many injuries is because he has been overused in recent years.
Barcelona didn't just lose the Copa Del Rey to rival Real Madrid on Wednesday evening. They also lost yet another one of their starters to injury.
After undergoing tests on Thursday, Barcelona announced on their website that Neymar has been ruled out for four weeks with a foot injury, potentially ruling him out for the rest of the La Liga season.
Images of Barcelona's home and away shirts for the 2014/15 season have been leaked on the Internet.
Barcelona's home shirt for next season is a combination of a retro and modern design. The retro feel is a result of the thicker vertical stripes and rounded collar, while the modern look is due to the unique collar design that incorporates the colors of the Catalan flag.
Man of the match Gareth Bale scored a stunning goal to earn Real Madrid their 19th Copa del Rey title against Barcelona on Wednesday. After Marc Bartra cancelled out Angel Di Maria's opener, Bale stormed out of the left-wing, running half the length of the pitch before poking the ball past Barcelona goalkeeper Jose Pinto in the 85thminute.
Top 5 Gareth Bale Goals For Real Madrid Welsh Saint Earns His Spurs - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Gareth Bale's stunning solo goal late last night won Real Madrid the Copa del Rey, disposing of arch-rivals Barcelona in the most dramatic of fashions.
It was a goal to remind the world of Bale's effortless genius; a goal to add to his growing number of special strikes; and a goal to permanently endear him to the army of Madrid faithful, who may have even begun to doubt him since his move to the Spanish capital.
Every time one watched Messi playing against Bilbao last week, one would left to wonder whether he prefer playing alongside Pedro rather than Neymar. It's not the first time it has happened this season. There were pundits who pointed out why Pedro needs to come ahead of Neymar, especially in order to get the best out of Messi.

It's okay Arsenal fans, I have already given myself a pinch to make sure that I really am awake, and it is not April fools day either. It really is being reported that Lionel Messi could be up for sale this summer. The Barcelona and Argentina forward has been out of sorts in recent weeks [...]
Insospechado. Más allá de la cronología y de que alguna vez el reinado acabaría no podría suponerse que "hinchas" del Barcelona se tomaran la molestia de apostarse de madrugada (3.30) en las puertas del Camp Nou sólo para insultar a su técnico y jugadores. "Messi eres una mierda", "Tata vete ya", "con lo que cobran.

FC Barcelona will be able to buy players in the next transfer window, at least for the time being.
FIFA released a memo on Wednesday saying that Barcelona's transfer ban from FIFA has been temporarily lifted due to an appeal lodged by the club. FIFA had placed the ban on Barcelona for the next two transfer windows due to what they found as irregularities in Barcelona's transfer policies with players under the age of 18.
Futbol Club Barcelona's appeal against the Transfer ban imposed by FIFA has been accepted by the footballing body. FIFA also have released the statement describing that they have suspended the sentence as they didn't see the appeal process(both at FIFA and CAS) to be completed before the commencement of the next tarnsfer and registration window.
Truly shocking news this morning that FIFA have temporarily overturned the heavy, two-window transfer ban they metered out to Barcelona earlier this month, meaning that the clubwill be able to buy players this summer after all, pending an appeal.
The identity of a football club is something many fans and historians hold close to their hearts.
The best example of this would be at Barcelona where they believe they are "Més que un club" (More than a club). A bond between the club and the Catalan people was fortified during the Spanish civil war and in later years a style of play was introduced which became symbolic of the ‘Barcelona Way'.
On Wednesday evening, Gareth Bale was worth every penny of his reported $132 million transfer fee for Real Madrid.
Facing Barcelona in the final of the Copa Del Rey, the supersonic Welshman knocked the ball past Barcelona defender Marc Bartra at the midfield line along the sideline and instantly went into fifth gear.
Spanish police yesterday confiscated a batch ofhallucinogenic drugs at the port in the city of Alicante which were disguised as chocolates moulded into the shape of the Barcelona club crest.
According to Policia Nacional, as well as large amounts of cocaine and cash, approximately 300 grammes of the Barca confectionery was seized in Alicante, with one person being arrested amaster "Turronero" (a confectioner specialising in making the famousTurron nougat), dubbed "Willy Wonka", who had obviously been using his powers for evil by producing chocolates laced with marijuana and magic mushrooms.
With the Club President indicating recently about a massive influx of players this summer, it may be wise for some of the current squad members to look for better options. It's not that the Club would be going in for a massive overhaul, especially considering that this management has always made only noise and has fallen short on their actions.
