  2. Nat Lucas says:

    All we need is for Barca to be back to its former self, to be feared by other big clubs. Bring back our Neymar!

    Trust You guys make good decisions that will bring the team Glory days back! Make the team fearful and deadly to other teams!


    We need to bring Neymar and haalan

    1. Winstone Kawala says:

      In my opinion Neymar is more money power than club concern. He will still disappoint us when we need him most. His pride and temperamental causes him to frustrate most of the funs. We can try to get Haalan I think he do better than Neymar. Koeman is a principled manager who can end up differing with Neyman. He wants fresh blood than old guys on the field. Barc. Is a force to recon with in the next season.


    We need to bring Neymar and two or three players. Like alaba, haland, kimich
