What a joy to see Barca play fierce football again!

It's been years since I enjoyed seeing the Blaugranas put up a true fight, years since we played with this much panache. What a pleasure it was to see Barca compete like a new dream team. The tenacity and cohesion were there, and there was a clear tactical intelligence sparkling on the field. And talent, talent, and talent. Yes, we often looked green behind our ears, because that's what we are, but in exchange we can have a rare glimpse of future promise. We are bound to see setbacks and defeats but the rebound is much faster than anyone could have expected. What a lovely surprise!
