Barcelona are heading to the Europa League for the first time in 21 years. It feels like rock bottom. Usually I try to find the positives and the silver lining, but after another 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich, are there any positives?
A 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich is leading to spiraling among Culers that I find myself a tad surprised by, to be honest. The XI that Ronald Koeman selected was the closest XI he could muster where the greatest majority of players were playing in their natural positions. Sergi Roberto, who was playing as a […]

Culers knew Bayern Munich were better than Barcelona. But there was still hope. Over eight goals, the Bavarians destroyed all hope and sent the Blaugrana home in humiliation. How did Quique Setién get his tactics so wrong?
Let’s go over the bad news first. Ousmane Dembélé last played for FC Barcelona on November 27th against Borussia Dortmund, in the group stage of the Champions League. That was before Culers had ever heard the name Francisco Trincão. That was before Quique Setién was in charge. That was before a global pandemic. It feels […]
When it comes to Philippe Coutinho’s loan to Bayern Munich, there are winners and losers. The winner is Bayern Munich, clearly. They gained a bench player that has played a minor role for the club this season, added depth and creativity off the bench, and they aren’t obligated to purchase him now. Moreover, he’s still […]
