This is yesterday's yellow card for #Messi. He doesn't hit a player and doesn't touch him. Was this tackle dangerous? Was Messi dangerous to the point that he needed a warning? 🤔twitter.com/loreabakero/st…r
OMG! This. Ilaix, we’re all you right now! 😍 The appreciation and gratitude of a player for his coach for giving him a chance. Thank you@RonaldKoemann! For the trust in these young players and for finally building a mentally strong team! �#BarcaAppreciationMomentntwitter.com/crewsmat19/sta…au
Mingueza made 5 tackles today. Among Barça players, only Busquets (35) has more successful tackles in La Liga this season than Mingueza (34).

This is Edgar Badía and #MessiAppreciationMoment Thank you both for being the kind of people you are. 🤩twitter.com/mfkraan/status…N
I have had it big time with the so-called @FCBarcelona fans who offend our players and coach @RonaldKoeman in particular, especially after the incident with his blood nose. He had a heart attack in May 2020 and uses blood thinning medicine. Get lost and be ashamed of yourselves!

The only place that becomes alive for the brief periods of time is the dressing room. When players and staff arrive for a few hours, experience that emptiness of Camp Nou, and then disappear, leaving this concrete and abandoned giant floating in the space of silence...
Those press conferences in empty rooms. No journalists. Just empty chairs and screens. All allowed personnel limit their interactions and keep their distance. Everybody is in masks...
In the offices there is no board, just some ghosts wandering the corridors. No decisions being made. No transfer windows. No calls. No emotions...
The recent months must have been so surreal... Can you imagine? The empty Camp Nou with no fans, no noise, no joy. Just the grass silently growing...
@edgarbadia @TwoFiveGloves @elchecf That was a moment of magic. After a game you’re not rivals, you’re both professional athletes. And for us, being able to see your true personalities, the humility, the respect, the mutual admiration is priceless and inspirational. Thank you for the great game and all the best! 😍

"How many balls has @Pedri recovered today? Another brutal defensive exercise of pure talent. Two of those recoveries have ended in goals..." twitter.com/moillorens/sta…
Pedri played in three different positions today: - Left interior in a 433 - Pivot in a 4231 - Left midfielder in a 4231 — @alexdelmas10

It’s crazy how many tackles and ball recoveries Pedri makes every game. His work off the ball is unbelievable.

The match commentator has just called #Messi a dragon. 🐉�#BarcaElchehe
Right profile. 😍 We're missing it. We're missing it. We're missing it.twitter.com/ManagingBarca/…V
Measuring team spirit and contribution to it is practically impossible. But the players with both professional and personal skills are required to build a strong and unified team. #FCBarcelona Maybe @barcanumbers can add something here, it's very welcome. 🤩
During that 2-months streak of games in Dec-Jan when Araújo started playing as a starter, the team grew in solidarity. For years we didn't have that team spirit, determination and confidence, like in the game against Granada. Watch them on the 87th min while being 2-0 down #FCB
Araújo is a quality defender, no doubt. But I think his contribution is not limited to skills, vision and tactics. Being the person that he is, it's possible that he also greatly contributes to the stability and confidence of the team. #FCB
And the last but not least, in those 16 games with Araújo we lost only once (Supercopa final vs Athletic) and drew 1 time. While in those 19 games without him Barca lost 7 games and drew 1. #barca #stats
The % of Shots on Target is also very interesting because the accuracy with Araújo is 44% and 37% without him. Not a huge difference? Well, take into account that our average this season is 41,5%. So that's exactly the difference between being above-average and below-average #FCB
With Ronald Araújo, the average per game: - Shots: 17,3 - Shots on Target: 7,6 - SoT%: 44% Without Araujo: - Sh: 15,1 - SoT: 6,2 - SoT%: 37% Not only the team attempts more shots, but they are more accurate as well. I wouldn't mind having an additional 26,6 SoT. #Barca #stats
How to convert team confidence into stats? Shots and Shots on Target (SoT) come to mind because they're potentially correlated to the players' self-confidence and confidence in the team. So I decided to look at them. Here are my findings (data from fbref.com): 👇
After Araujo became a starter, Barca had an amazing streak of consistent wins which we didn't have before this season. And it felt as if the team was growing as well. And, all this progress and wins stopped right after he got injured in the game against Betis #FCBarcelona 👇
It's 16 games in total with Araújo vs 19 games without him. The games RA played are highlighted. 👇 He started playing consistently on 12 Dec 2020 after Pique was injured for some time. Right after two losses in a row (Cadiz and Juve at home).#FCBarcelonaa#statsst
Ronald Araújo, a thread 🧵 Recently It felt that Barca played more stable and more confident and it correlated with Araújo being on the field. Feelings are subjective, so I've made a quick analysis of all the matches this season when RA played the majority of the time: >60m#FCBBT
I appreciate the families of the players 😍twitter.com/ManagingBarca/…6
In two weeks we'll have a president 😊�twitter.com/Rivaldoway/sta…bc
I appreciate that RK is backing the players publicly. It's a must-have for a coach who wants to improve a team. I hope that there is more concrete work from his side behind the scenes to help the players. twitter.com/ManagingBarca/…
It feels that every lost game gets them. Every tiny individual mistake gets them. Why? Why do they let these things define them and their play? I watch Barca because they play beautifully when they don't underperform and aren't afraid to do so. And I don't care if they lose #FCB
Is there anyone in the club who is responsible for tracking and managing the individual and collective dynamics and the team's state? Sporting performance highly depends on psychological state. The team right now is not stable. #FCB
I get the idea of starting the same players after PSG. To not destabilize the team. But. The same players did exactly the same with Cadiz: 1 penalty and a defensive mistake when Cadiz started to attack. They are very consistent in underperforming. Why? #BarçaCádiz twitter.com/BarcaUniversal…
