The NEXT Barça President...

Força Barça2010-05-09 02:20:15 +0000 #1
I don't live in Catalonia so I have all these questions about the upcoming election, for those who know please give us your thoughts...

- Will the situation of the club become "definitely better" just because there's an election? I mean these club members voted-in Gaspart 3 yrs ago wanting "a change of air" from Nunez (don't know much on what all that was about), and it proved disastrous in hindsight.

I just saw a football documentary called "Height of Passion: Real Madrid and Barcelona". Towards the end of the show, I didn't know to laugh or cry when there was Gaspart, just after he'd won the election in July 2000, saying "There'll be a new and better Barcelona, I will do this, I will do that... bla bla bla.."

The last time I heard, there are 7 to 8 candidates going for the club president throne this time. That is staggering !!! Isn't that a distraction somewhat? How do voting club members sort out the wheats from the chaffs...

Do they look at the candidates' social status? appearance? financial backing? sugarcoated promises? Who he'll sell or buy? Gaspart likely had all those criteria well-rated back then, and still turned out to be an idiot... So how can voters this time prevent themselves from making the same mistakes of picking an imcompetant president who, for argument sake, could be in it just to be famous by pushing his luck and raise his own profile?

And what if there aren't many voters turning out to vote? Hell, look no further than the example of how George W Bush got voted in, very marginally, by only half the US population.... OK I won't digress any further with silly US politics but... dare I ask.... isn't this democratic system flawed to some extent...

- Will voters know which sporting technical director / scouting personnel will be hired under certain president-candidates?

The club badly needs a Valdano-equivalent, a figure that arguably could be more important than the club president himself, considering the current state of the 1st team squad. We're talking about urgent need of a specialist who knows football matters inside-out, possessing BOTH contract-negotiation skills + talent-evaluation skills.

- there're talks of a major overhaul towards player-personnel. GKs, MFs, bench players etc..... yet there's NO MONEY as the club is in major debt. How's the new president gonna solve this problem? Has the current situation become so bad that even with a second-coming of Florentino running Barca, the football team still won't be sportingly and financially competitive enough until the season-after-next (04-05) ?

Sorry for painting a doom and gloom picture but I thought these are realistically worth thinking about, important enough to decide Barca's fortune for the next 4-5 years..

So many questions, so little time...

All of you who read the daily sports paper or watch the local bulletins, please fill us in...
