The very same. Hope Levy had a hefty sell-on fee clause.
Didn't think I'd see the day a Spurs reject signed for Barcelona. Have they not watched his matches for Spurs? How is a man who struggled against Aston Villa and Burnley playing for Barca?

If we do have a sell-on clause then perhaps we should send Sissoko to China for a year or two.

Very interested to see now his time at Barcelona pans out. I think our fans got on his back very quickly and it obviously knocked his confidence, and when a players confidence is knocked the first thing that disappears is their creativity and individualism.

It's much easier to play well in China than it is in England or Spain though.

presume barca no longer playing tiki taka....I mean isn't simple ball control and passing essential for that style of football

The annoying thing is that Levy probably never imagined anybody else would ever take him so didn't bother adding a sell-on clause.

And he just scored a late goal to put them 2 - 1 up at Getafe
84 mins
GOAL - Getafe 1-2 Barcelona
Paulinho

Barca hit back late on.

Brilliant from Paulinho.

The midfielder, who could not get a game for Tottenham, latches on to Lionel Messi's pass.

The Brazilian bursts into the box, holds off a challenge from Djene and smashes a superb finish across Vicente Guaita and into the far corner of the net.

Pure power by Paulinho.
Fuck me we needed something like that today.
