    The club is a complete mess, and needs to shed £200m off its wage bill before it can register any new players including Messi. To add further woes, Rakutan have made an official complaint for the actions of Griezmann and Dembele.
    Other than Pedri is there anyone else you would sign?

    No ones going to leave on low wages. Umiti and Miriam P(Who the fuck names their boy Miriam?) have said they're not going anywhere as they're on stupid wages that won't be matched if they move

    Pedri, he's gonna be fucking immense.

    Other than that anybody worth buying would destroy our wage structure

    In reality Barca are going to want rid of the older expensive stars, but because they need rid they're really over a barrell.

    Teams could do to Barca what everybody did to Leeds back in the day and have Barca paying a portion of the wages for a player no longer on their team.

    Pedri on the bench to slowly take over from Thiago/Hendo.
    Other than that not sure who else could break into our starting XI.

    They're in the shit even if Messi doesn't re-sign.

    They're not going to sell Pedri and Fati - they're the future.

    Yeah, plus Messi boosts their income and brings in more than they pay him, according to the books. So they're not getting rid of him.

    Griezmann could probably be good for us.

    If it's a choice of keep Messi or Sell Pedri and Fati, they'd probably do the latter.

    Coutinho deserves a gold coated statue outside of Anny Road.
    With a plaque reading:
    “Forever grateful to his services for funding of various investements through 2018-2020 paving the way for Klopp’s red dominance”

    We could take the Nou Camp and use it for warm weather training

    Reading between the lines it seems as if there are so many sponsorship deals whereby Barca directly or indirectly profit from Messi's presence. Without him they are just another club with a set of very good players but none on the same level of marketability.  Maybe Messi leaving will force them to get back to basics and building a TEAM rather than current FC Messi and friends. I personally don't think they're good enough and need a manager that can evolve the titka taka into the modern age, most teams have moved on to the pressing style game even Peps City have.

    I don't drink, but if I ever meet Bartomeu, I am taking him to the nearest bar/pub of his choice and telling him to order anything he wants, how much ever he wants on my tab.

    All the sanctimonious holier than thou, footballing high horse "More than a club" bullshit we had to endure. Particularly during the Mascherano, Suarez transfer - as if it is our duty to release the players so that they have the honor of playing for them.
