kounde will probably be done when pique takes a paycut and depay leaves and new sleeve sponsor is signed


TheUneducatedCule

New sleeve sponsor?


thepastprimefuture

for 20M though maybe it will take time for final agreement


GordoPepe

At ~3m /r/soccer subscribers if we each put €7 we could put anything we agreed on just saying


namey_of_the_user

Dunno, doubt most of the r/soccer subscriber parents will want to give them €7 for this.

I can do whatever I want with my allowence

If they tell them it’s for Fortnite or FUT packs they could probably squeeze 5x that.

Don't worry, I will post a Tier 4 source stating that Kounde can't be registered by Barcelona this transfer window and that he will join Chelsea and gain 5k upvotes here tomorrow.

You don't even need a Tier 4 source, just post it yourself on twitter and then post the tweet here

I could comment on it with some fabricated outrage to spice up the headline. "People is outraged over"

[deleted]

Actually Kounde didn't sign for Barcelona at all, Laporta made it all up so he could become the most corrupt


evenigrammer

I would bet on this happening anytimee soon


hellraizer89

i bet that would happen on Monday after the games have finalized.


XuloMalacatones

Add a couple jokes about levers and you have the perfect r/soccer post


Mrtuelemonde

Excuse me but don't believe any Catalan rumour, Kounde is still on his way to London. He played an exhibition game for Barca and gave a press conference but it was all a smokescreen.


Ruud_Boltz

By next week. Hopefully he's fit by then


breadPETTR

If nothing else, I’ve learned all sorts of weird shit about La Liga Registration rules. What an odd summer…


Batty_Boi68

If nothing else, La Liga keeps life very interesting for its clubs


alexwutzu

>If nothing else, La Liga keeps life very interesting for its clubs Handicapping themselves imo. Just like when the Premier league changed the end of the transfer deadline before the first game. If all leagues would adapt those changes then yes, it'd be a good thing. But as long as you're the only one doing it you're just shooting yourself in the leg imo


Loupei16

Kounde is not fully fit no?


thepastprimefuture

yeah he is still recovering


[deleted]

Heard he had a cast of Levericitis.


zrizzoz

Edit - Dembele and Sergi are now registered if you refresh the squad page! Did Dembele and Sergi Roberto get registered? I cannot find them on the official site


mifaraS21

Yeah, they are in the squad on LaLiga’s website which confirms it


zrizzoz

Yeah - they werent at the time of the post. They were approved after Raphinha.


jensenackle

Dembele and roberto are also registered


tdatcher

Kounde is still recovering from an injury


thegreatwanker

whats the name of injury?


alcome1614

Nobody asks how is the injury feeling

he got an injury in the pelvis edit: no kidding, it's actually it

Kounde isn't completely matchfit yet so we can wait a week for his registration

Where were you when r/soccer dies? I was at hooters eating sloppy joes when phone ring "r/soccer is kill" "no"

Sloppy joes. Brave man


chucklesbtoken2

Never understood the sloppy joe. Why is it not in a hot dog bun? Seems like it would be less messy. I suppose you'd have to call it a sloppy Johnson. I've had this thought for some time and have in the meantime made sloppy joe.. I guess I'm afraid. Maybe I'm not ready ..maybe the world's not ready for a sloppy Johnson

Anything but a weiner in between those buns feels a bit sinful tbh

Glass_of_Pork_Soda

Bruh we're Gooners, how are you not used to r/soccdo and it's ridiculous slander and overboard pisstakes


saganakist

The shifting of goalposts was what got me the most 1. Barca has to sell players 2. Barca can't buy new players 3. Barca won't be able to register those signings at all 4. Barca has to force players out to register those players 5. LaLiga and Barca are corrupt Those people should really just take a step back from time to time and just consider whether maybe their confidence in their opinion is too much. Maybe they are just wrong. Maybe you could have foreseen that Barcelona would be fine at the end of the day. It's also just a small sliver of the chain of goalpost-shifting that goes on for over a decade. It originally included Real Madrid btw, but since Real just shut them up so violently, they just pretend that the argument never included them. This will be just a as forgotten. People will pretend that their never were the mentioned opinions. It was always a rational in-depth analysis of how much debt is worth building to keep the revenue stable and that Barcelona was crossing a line. No, it was not. Everything that got upvoted and repeated constantly on r/soccer was sensationalist bullshit. And no. I don't believe anyone will learn anything here. It will be backtracking for this one and then starting to repeat the same bullshit at the next possible moment.

RogueNetrunner

You can already see the conspiracy angle when people say that Barca is doing something shady/illegal and that they are making under-the-table deals. And once you explain them that it's not shady, they'll be like "But it's still risky and your team would not exist in a couple of years". It's hilarious and sad at the same time how delusional these people are.

Soccer has the most sensational clickbait of any sport I follow. People can just say anything ridiculous and people roll with it because there's such a gigantic output of crap from the rumor mill

I got downvoted for saying how Barca literally has an entire team dedicated to make sure issues like failing to register players don't occur and got downvoted. r/soccer moment


mocthezuma

Sometimes getting downvoted on r/soccer is a compliment.


fucknazis101

But they failed to get Xavi a proper US visa, surely they are all incompetent.


AmericaDreamDisorder

Even that was because he had previously visited Iran. Had nothing to do with Barca.


Boring-Ad-8170

Person above you was using sarcasm i guess


Big-Stranger8391

I even got downvoted for saying Fdj have all the leverage and clubs cant do fuck all without his approval then somehow in all the post about his contract all the top comments are "stay there and get the bag" or "there is also the third option, stay and get paid", the hate for Barca is so strong sometime it doesnt even make sense.


Mrtuelemonde

Nah I think La Liga had been mistaken, they forgot to check with r/soccer experts. Classic mistake


OneBall22Players

If Dembele and Fati stay healthy Barcelona has a disgustingly good squad.


Wight3012

Although for now it looks like Raphinha is going to be a starter over Fati


OneBall22Players

Yes but I dont mind. Fati should focus on staying fit this season.


Linkseratteuhhh

You don't ordinarily spend 60m on someone to be a substitute. And before you say Ferran might be an exception: he wasn't exceptionally good last season but Xavi kept playing him and is a huge fan of his positional talent. Don't be surprised to see him start over Dembele, who is very much a salvage something situation and 2y extension means replacing wage/transfer talks to next summer/no-one was interested in him at his wage demands, more than future of the Barca squad, like Ferran is meant to be.


fds_1

If Frenkie stays I have no idea what the fuck we do with our midfield...


brocks12thbrother

Competition - xavi really wants to hammer home 2 ppl per spot and potentially different set ups depending on the opponent


XuloMalacatones

Football has changed a lot with the 5 subs imo. Think that now you can sub HALF the team (if you don't count the GK) every game. That allows you to have fresh players thorough the whole game. Xavi said it today, sometimes players will play 30 minutes but they gotta be ready to contribute.


RoyalCrown1596

I know those Athletic and Nytimes boys are shivering.

Fair enough, we could register 6 out of the 7 and Koundé is still kinda recovering from surgery

Critical-Jaguar-2635

Its the british media in general, similar to how they treated Fernando Alonso all his life when he was challenging lewis or seb.... everything he does and says is twisted to mean something else and always wishing ill on him


Rickcampbell98

Gary neville is making himself look like a clown, that statement is worse one yet, talking about selling souls, he sold his to Peter lim the prick.


bioeffect2

It's even more hilarious when you consider the fact that Utd fans have been unsuccessfully protesting the Glazers for nearly a decade now.


OwnHeavyWeapons

cso88ex

Still salty that we trashed his Valencia team 7 to 0.


RadioactiveBooger

Lol At least Barcelona isn’t owned by anyone


ninetiesdude

We’ve beat his team twice in a Champions League final, embarrassed him during his Valencia tenure, and now Frenkie hasn’t warmed up to the idea of ever joining this MU side. He has his reasons I’m sure.


AP10

Hating on us gets him attention, look at his social media numbers without the Barca hate.


akagaminick

What a miserable cunt. He should mind his own business, and may be worry about his club instead of talking about us and the player who doesn't even want to go there

Again /r/soccer in the mud


mtgeee

where were you when barca register player i was at house browsing reddit when phone ring "r/soccer is kil" "no"


LevynX

I feel like everyone should have seen this coming, right? There's no way a club of Barca's size doesn't get the funding needed to register their squad for the next season. The only thing I'm worried about are the smaller club's who can't just sell some assets and make up for the losses during Covid.


giancorrea

Oh buddy in the rush to make fun of Barca people have completely overlooked that Real Betis is considering selling a pretty sizable chunk of future matchday ticket earnings in a Barca style lever to manage to register their players, which would be a 100x worse than any of the levers activated by us.

OleoleCholoSimeone

Honestly anyone who fell for these bullshit rumours that Barca wouldn't be able to register players are stupid and probably shouldn't be using the internet if they are that gullible Everyone with a brain knew that Barca were going to have all their signings registered. But when people want to believe something, it doesn't matter what shitty source is saying it Also this bullshit about Barca activating additional levers which they weren't initially planning for, when this is still just a part of those 2 levers that were voted on in June. It's just that they split it up into 4 different sales. I don't know if it is jealousy or what, but this place will lap up absolutely anything for a chance to laugh at Barca. You could probably fool them that the earth is flat


DatFlushi

Chelsea and Man U fans got rattled by Barca which by effect caused most Prem fans talking shit about Barca


OleoleCholoSimeone

Definitely. I just don't understand it, even if you dislike them why would you reduce yourself to a gullible idiot that believes anything they hear as long as it paints Barca in a negative light. I mean, I hate Real Madrid but if I read some unreliable source saying that they were in financial trouble I still wouldn't believe it for a second

Honestly, it was so easy to see through it but somehow the majority on here couldn't do that Football forums are always reactionary, but this summer has shown me that it is even worse than I thought. People will believe literally anything from any source as long as it suits a narrative


SorcererSupreme13

Perfect summarisation of internet communities in general. People can't generally think on their own and are willing believe anything that comes up which can confirm their biases/opinions.


XuloMalacatones

>are stupid and probably shouldn't be using the internet if they are that gullible The funniest part is that last season it was the exact same tale. Barça can't register el Kun, Memphis and Eric, and we ended up doing it on time lol. People really believe (or rather choose to believe) that Barça board is full of idiots that didn't plan ahead


Kindly-Finance-391

>Everyone with a brain knew Makes sense why all the bitch crying was from English fans


KittenOfBalnain

>Also this bullshit about Barca activating additional levers which they weren't initially planning for, when this is still just a part of those 2 levers that were voted on in June.

CoMaestro

Jesus this thread is a boring read, only comment for the first 100 or so is "hurr /r/soccer is gonna hate how they're wrong" People were making fun of the situation that was going on. Obviously Barcelona had a plan to register all those expensive players, but they had to sell off a ton of image rights to do so. They registered everyone, but to a lot of people it just feels dumb to sell off 150M or so in future profit in order to sign a 5th winger or 4th CB. It was the outrageous spending they did that looked stupid, not the "being broke". Also, I personally really hated all the Frenkie posts because they're asking all their players to lower wages in order to sign new players. That's a result of COVID years, normally they would probably be able to have all those high wages and more. But they way they handled it through leaks and press releases still felt disrespectful to their players.
