I've started this thread so that we can discuss one of the most colourful and powerful figures at the club. Mr. Gaspart is definately a recognizeable figure at the club and is often in the news. This thread will serve as a forum to discuss his reign past, present and future.

An okay move getting LVG to the club. He know's how to work for the club!

I assume you mean LVG. Yes, he does.

I met some Spanish guys through work once and we began discussing football. They told me that Gaspart is very passionate about Barca and that he really loves the club. I think that point was driven home when I saw the last game of the 2000-2001 season vs Valencia. After Rivaldo scored that brilliant third goal, Gaspart went crazy. The Valencia president was sitting right next to him too. I think it's a bit unprofessional for someone in his position, but he definately was caught up in the moment and you could see his passion.

It's good that Barca has a good president, who doesn't just goes for the power of being in charge of a big club (like in Italy and some places in Spain) And after all, you can't blame the man of going crazy over that goal, it was beautiful!

I don't think he's that great a president though. He worries to much about Real Madrid and it just makes Barca look bad. Also, I think he has too much of a hands on approach to the club. I'd like him more if were more quiet and less visible. He let's his emotions get the best of him.

See your point, but it would also be bad with a president who thought his job was boring.

I know, but I just think he should show a certain level of decorum and be a bit more reserved. I thought it was fine when he celebrated after that Valencia match. I'd have done the same thing. I just don't like the jibes he takes at Real. Some of them are fine, but others are unwarranted and only make us look bad. For example, when Real sold their old training facilities to the city of Madrid for over 200 million to wipe out much of their debt, Gaspart moaned about it and said it was another example of corruption. I agree with Gaspart that it probably was a bit, but I don't think that's something you say in public. If you do, you say it a bit more subtlely.

See your point. FaTeam/fans should support their team, in stead of criticize other teams!
