Not a shit club. Shit owner.

I don't really think he's shit, he's really passionate but his methods are shit.

I got a funny story for ya segunda. It also explains why I dislike Spain so much (the bandwagon fans)

I was in uni with some friends pre euros, some guys, and we were discussing what teams we enjoy watching and who we hope wins. I said Im a fan of the germans and their guys, others were like lifelong italian fanatics dating back to 1994, then a guy popped up, this douche i cant stand and said hes a spain fan

When asked who his favourite player is, he said the striker, aston villa

Media are ruthless in most major football countries though. What major teams are there in Europe where the media isn't ruthless if you don't do well? There's no such thing as a stress free managerial job at a top team in Europe but I'd imagine Barca internally is a much better culture to work in than somewhere like Madrid or Chelsea. External factors will always drive top managers to the brink of insanity with stress but that's just the culture we live in right now.

Just checked, and it was March he took over, so it would only have been the quarter-final against Benfica.

Still a proper good achievement, don't get me wrong.

After Rijkaard though I cant imagine it was easy for a guy with practically no track record like Pep to try and have his way in the club

Who was it that was considered a cancer in the club again? xavi or iniesta?

It seems like Chelsea's improvement was more of AVB leaving and not RDM taking over.

He took over after the 1st leg defeat to Napoli. Came in and turned that 2nd leg around, beat Benfica, overcame Barca somehow and beat Bayern in the Final. That Champions League win was down to him. AVB had them on the brink of elimination after the Napolo defeat.

they bag you when you're doing well too. at least the madrid based papers do. you don't really get that in ungurlund.

when pep started out barca were an absolute rabble. shit egos, shit board members, conflicts etc. obviously he got the on pitch part sorted out, but im not too sure how rosy peachy it was behind the scenes, especially near the end there.

xavi. well he considers that rijkaard made him the cancer due to how he played a physical game that limited xavi's natural abilities.
