The end of an era?

Aaaaand the game is over. FC Bayern has qualified to the Champions League final after smashing FC Barcelona with 3-0 and an aggregate victory of 7-0.

Arjen Robben opened the scoring with a perfect left-footed effort past Valdés. 2-0 was an own goal from Gerard Piqué and then Thomas Müller´s strike made it 3-0.

Tito Vilanova, FC Barcelona manager said following after the game:

I´m very upset about the game. We din´t play good and I´m really disappointed. I want to apologize to all the Barca supporters for this terrible result.

But now we have to focus on the league. I´m sure that we can win it.

Of course Barca can win the league. But after this big loss, many people will ask the same question. Is this the end of an era?

Barca are the champions of Spain

La Liga is over for this year. And FC Barcelona are the winners! They secured it after Real Madrid´s draw against Espanyol on 11 May at the Cornellà-El Prat. That result gave FC Barcelona an 8 point lead with two matches remaining.

Barcelonas last game was against Malaga. The game ended with a 4-1 victory for Barca. Goalscorers were David Villa, Iniesta, Fabregas and Montoya for Barca and Morales for Malaga.
Barcelona has been at the top of the league table for the whole season, and they´ve only lost two matches. This is the first title as a head coach for Tito Vilanova.

After the game Vilanova speaked to the press.

I´m very happy to win the league. This is the first title for me as a head coach and I´m very proud over the team. I hope that we´ll do this well next season too and then we can hopefully go further in the Champions League, Copa del Rey and the Super Cup aswell.
But we´ve talked to some Barca supporters and they doesn´t seems to be satisfied despite the La Liga title. Here´s what some of them said:

- "Of course it´s good to win the league title but I think that it´s just a cover to the terrible loss against Bayern."
- "We need to rebuild the team for next season and give more play time to players like Thiago, Bartra, Rafinha and keep some experienced players like Xavi, Puyol and Abidal."
- "The board is a joke they´ve failed to sign a centre back for three years now. And Zubizarreta is a joke as sports director. We´re playing with Mascherano and Song as centre backs, it´s a fucking joke."

The supporters doesn´t seems to be satisfied. Can we expect big changes in Barcelona this summer?

I´m sad to leave Barca, but I have to think about my carrer. I don´t think that the manager believes in me and I need to play matches to develop and I think that I can do that at Bayern.

The Barca board has also taken the decision to not renew the contract of the leftback and fans favourite Eric Abidal. Eric has also talked to the press.

I´m very sad that the Barca board doesn´t believe in me and that I have to leave the club. I´ll miss all my teammates. But I won´t end my carrer, I´ll continue somewhere else.

Many Barca supporters has criticized the sellings of the great talented Thiago and the club legend Abidal.

FC Barcelona has confirmed and released their new kits for the 2013-14 season. The main sponsor is Qatar Airways and their logo is on the front of the shirt. On the back there´s a Unicef logo and on the inside of the shirt there´s a Intel logo.

Both the fans and the players seems to be very pleased with the new kits.

The home kit is in the classic blue and red colors and the third kit is black, just like last year. The big change is the away kit, it´s red and yellow. That´s the colors of the catalan flag and that´s a reason to why it´s very popular among the fans.

A great start to the story and an interesting choice of manager. He simply couldn't turn down the opportunity!
