Den Schepanskyi Nothing more to say about Spanish referees.

Athletic Bilbao striker Asier Villalibre pulled out his trumpet after winning the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday night, as far as Barcelona supporters are concerned he might as well have played The Last Post. It was Villalibre who was punched by Lionel Messi in injury time with the Argentine sent off for the first time in his entire Barcelona career.

Catalan Government vote to allow postal votes in Barcelona presidential elections

Barcelona should’ve been gearing up for their presidential elections which were due to take place this coming Sunday. However, the inability for club members to leave their municipality to vote, because of coronavirus protocols, meant that the original date had to be scrapped.

Milan preparing to test Barcelona’s resolve with bids for two stars in January

The last seven days was a week of ups and downs for Barcelona.

That certainly appears to be the case for both Samuel Umtiti and Junior Firpo. According to Gazzetta dello
