Was It The Barca Era? Or The Guardiola Era.

  So is it just me or did FCB really just lose 2 classicos and barley tie 1 they were unable to cope with Real Madrid's skill this year which is unusual but why? i remember when Barcelona used to win 5 - 0 with ease against Madrid. and then everybody was blabbing their mouths about the "Barcelona Era" its "Our Time" they would say but is it really? i think it was the effort of one skilled man that created all of FCB's success. . . no I'm not talking about Messi. it was none other than Pep Guardiola their famous manager that left the club in the hands of the assistant Tito Villanova. the assistant wasn't doing such a bad job and then he learns that he has cancer and leaves the club in the hands of the 2nd assistant being Roura.

i mean since when do Barcelona get beat down 1 - 3 in their own fortress the camp Nou?!!

but this isn't 100% about Barcelona missing their manager its also mostly about the skill, Tenacity, and Mastery of Real Madrid who deserved every the two triumphs.

I Started writing this post back then when they lost the classicos and never got to publish it. I chose to finish it now because there has been more proof that it was Guardiola who was the mastermind behind FCB's Success.

So FCB did win the "La Liga" title this year but i'm not sure how challenging that is because all they had to do was survive against or beat 4 teams in their league. i mean what challenge is their in Spanish football? Its nothing compared to the challenges of English Football or Italian football.

i mean just look at FCB when they played in Europe this year:

Goal

After Goal After Goal After Goal

This Pic Says it all

The Team was not potentially ready for change, and then change hit them hard after Guardiola left. This Just comes to show you that the manager is one of the most important parts when it comes to a team's form and tactics. Lets see if next season Neymar Jr. will be the cure to the hangover Barca are living in . .
