Dest: best player in the Barcelona side today? (Liked Messi and Alba for an hour).

There’s an idea that this year has been a really, uniquely exciting Champions League, which vindicates (and is because of the format). Let’s accept that for a minute (although it’s debatable) but, erm, did no one watch last year’s?

And so the destruction is complete.

Top story on Barcelona's website: Coutinho joins preseason training.

The “no one cares” (but I cared enough to tweet that) tweeters... strange people

Brilliant. Valencia fans hire a Mariachi band to follow directors and let their complaints be known. #ProtestSong 

For no particular reason except that I like the photo (a recent version of many similar ones). There’s something sort of magical about going up a stadium stairs and that moment the pitch first comes into view, all bright and green and almost overwhelming.

In seven days, Real Madrid lost it all. And all at home. Amazing.

16 goals in 15 games for Messi against English teams. You know, I reckon he might just about be able to do it in Stoke.

Wenger won three Premier Leagues, didn’t he? Specialist in failure. Respect, respect, respect.
