PLEASE make Xavi talk to Riqui on the phone and convince him not to leave the club and wait for a couple of months until the clown Bartomeu and his clown manager Koeman are kicked out. We do not want Thiago 2.0. @victor_font

Look at the outrage from the whole fanbase, INCLUDING verified pundits. Puig is an extraordinary player. Koeman saying Puig is not in his plans is buIIshit. He's the most impressive player so far. Fück that 4-2-3-1 formation. Nobody gives a fück about that lame formation anyway.

Victor Font was right all along. I can't believe I ever doubted his plan to remove Koeman regardless of what happens this season. https://t.co/U5lcgdxNZ5
