Does any body else hope Barca should start the match with all the kids?
We would get to know if they are really that good or if it's just the over-confidence shown by the board in them to, you know, escape from the criticism of not being very active in the transfer market.
I hope Man City comes out all guns open on our kids, kids would show if they are really worth it or not & if not, then the starters get on to the pitch and save our ass and we win just shaded in the end... We will get to know the truth. After all our pre-season was all against mediocre teams

@ the first anony:

The youngsters are good, and it wont matter if play incredible or not. Look at there ages 18-20..they r still young no matter how good they are.

Look at other factors such as experience, strength and power. Sure they have some of these but not all, so it does not matter no matter how amazing they are. look at the arsenal players last yr they were really bullied by other teams even tho they have more experience than our youngsters.

Hey Pep, guys..If anyone wants to know on which channel any game is available on. Go to

Its a very good site where they show you almost every single match in the world and on what channels they are shown on.

Hope it was helpful.

i agree with blaugrana1, it would be good to see how our youngsters respond to a game of high intensity. however, it needs to be taken into context.

us as fans also need to have a bit more patience. like wat wenger said abt cesc, saying he expects him to score goals now that he's 22, cuz players usually start scoring more goals from that age.

also look at how much patience he's put into the horrific bendtner, i think we need that kind of patience to see our youngsters blossom, cuz we kno they hav the potential.

TV4 Sport
Sport 1 NL

I do accept they are good. But it's not a very intelligent idea to have just them as our bench-warmers. Wenger has proved that with his trophy-less spree. Now as they say a wise man would learn from others mistakes. Last year, Arsenal main squad was not that bad, you see. They had Van Persie, Adebayor, Nasri, Fabregas, Song(who had prior top flight experience & had a very good ACN already), Toure, Gallas, Clichy, Almunia, Sagna, Walcott(who's as been around for like 4 years now!?)... But then with all the injuries they had to rely on the 'promising' kids & take a look at what they have delivered.
Now I agree Arsenal were a bit unlucky to be hit with so many injuries, but could you guarantee that we won't have that? We were very lucky for our main team starters not picking a major injury last time, but we can't expect it to be the same case this time around.
I do agree that those kids of Arsenal look matured now, but do you want us to endure similar pain to see all our kids get matured!?

I am really sorry. It was a mistake not to click on name/url instead of a deliberate one. Cheers :)

Hopefully we get to see a 'similar' dramatic end as against Boca last year:D.
That was awesome.

I hope to see a great football festival, where many young players get their chance, and show their critics their skills.

Andréssibraviqué said...

Any way it's not that I don't want them to get playing time... I want us to rely on them only if they are at least half ready to step up to be the Barca squad players. Or else better buy 1 or 2 new players.

TengkuAmir10 said...


They're 18 and still not 'that good' is acceptable for you?

bombastico said...

1 or 2 new player would be awesome pep and vilanova have already made it clear that they wish atleast one or two players so lets wait.

Txiki definitely has started this year way too late so its gonna be his fault for not winning any trophies...

Andréssibraviqué said...

EMD claims Laporta would have said to be keen to sign Robben or Higuain if the Madrid board are willing to sell them to us for a reasonable-market price... If suppose that happens who would you welcome, Robben or higuain? Me, I will go for Higuain. The man is a genuine striker, good poacher. Robben is a selfish mother fucker, don't want him any where near barcelona
