David Villa will be fit again, that will give us forward line option of Messi, Villa, Sanchez, Pedro, Tello, Cuenca. Following a decent pre-season for Villa, Cesc and Sanchez, the arrival of Jordi Alba and a centre back, (Martinez?), the coming season looks pretty good to me!!
Nowhere near as strong as Real Madrid, though . IMHO
In May 2008 we lost the El Clasico with 4-1 and then Pep arrived with small additions to the team with the likes of Alves, Keita or Pique(I'm not talking about the flops) while removing Ronnie or Deco. Nobody gave Barça a chance. Nobody saw anything good coming from these transfers or from Pep.
Now we lost the El Clasico with 3-1 and Tito's bringing some players which he thinks they're suited and everybody thinks(like you) we're not gonna be as strong as Madrid. History repeating? Have some faith.
p.s.: and I really don't think that the ref job is gonna be the same this season. Too much is too obvious!
