Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Camp Nou goes down the curtain until 2021 and the feelings that has left the FC Barcelona in this end of year have been disappointing and worrisome. In front of the Eibar was the last chapter of a year that finished as it began: with doubts a sportive crisis of which will be very difficult to go out. The 2020 had of all the negative that could imagine the barcelonismo: dismissals (of two trainers), defeats, humiliations in the field and the almost gone out of Lionel Messi of the Camp Nou that, to follow like this the team the next year, will be unavoidable to keep to the captain in the team, win the one who win the presidential elections.

The year began and finished with storms, but without titles. From the month of January, the FC Barcelona gave the first signals that confirmed the problem that dragged from Rome: the staff could not more. After the elimination in the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain, the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde and the back arrival of Quique Setién, everything in less than a week, the barcelonismo believed in the illusion that, with new trainer, the things went to change, or at least, to improve. At all more far of the reality.

The FC Barcelona showed that, without mattering the man that lead the bench, the problems of the team are much deeper and, definitely, the consequence of the bad management and planning of previous years. The critical situation of the culés saw stressed when in February fell deleted of the Glass of Rey, in front of the Athletic Bilbao, after a goal in the last minutes. It was the second of a sinfín of failures in the year.

The world paralysed in the month of March by the pandemia of the coronavirus, but no without before a new disappointment of the Barça. In the beginning of the month, the culés remained portrayed in Santiago Bernabéu after a defeat in the Classical by 2-0. The situation changing room-bench-managerial found in his point of break and, somehow, the confinement served to reduce the uncertainties, by some months, of the team. For hope of the club, finished of first in the classification after a 'prick' of the Madrid.

After several institutional problems and of some clashes between the bench and the directive (by the reduction salarial), the football returned in June, but far to improve the situation of the culés, continued the nightmare. The Barça left win the league by the Real Madrid, by own errors and the consequences were grave. In the Champions League, the last bullet that remained him to the Barcelona not to close the season in zero, went still worse. After winning 'in extremis' to the Napoli, fell the goleada in Lisbon in front of the Bayern, 2-8, the back dismissal of Quique Setién and the burofax of Messi...

The Barça found in his more critical situation when, after finishing the season, the Barcelona directive received a communiqué of Lionel Messi in which it said that had the intention to abandon the club. Josep María Bartomeu, that finished resigning in October, did malabares so that the Argentinian remained and, with the arrival of Ronald Koeman (the third trainer of the culés in 2020), recover to a team that lived his worst crisis.

At the end, there was not revolution

All the hopes were put in Ronald Koeman, a man that had dressed the T-shirt blaugrana and that it is a legend for the club. His intention, in paper, was to revolutionise to the equipor but, almost six months after his arrival, the situation that lives the FC Barcelona is so worrisome as it was it in August and, to this point, the culés are not thinking in the titles, but taking out accounts to remain in 'zone Champions' of face to the next season.

The Barça of Koeman has been a Russian mountain of feelings and results. A day the team convinces in the field and to the another disappoints: there is not the one who follow him the rhythm. In front of the Eibar, in the tie 1-1, went the last proof that it needs a lot of magic to recover to the team and that, for the moment, the situation is him escaping of the hands to the Dutch technician.
