WELCOME TO SON MOIX!!! The cozy home of Mallorca is the site of the team’s first match of 2022 and it is a big one as they welcome Barcelona for some Sunday Night Fútbol. Barça come into this one looking to start the new year with three points to climb the La Liga table, but with 16 players missing for tonight they will certainly not have it easy even against a team in and around the relegation places. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!

(Note: the comments will be open only when the team news come out, because our commenter people love commenting and sometimes there are too many comments in the comments section)

Matchday Thread Rules

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.

Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
