Part of me wishes he'd return because I bought my mom a Neymar Barcelona jersey back when I was in Spain few years ago. She loves him. It would have a little more sense and value if he got back with you guys rather than staying in PSG or worse, signing for Real Madrid.I was optimistic at one point, and for the first 11 matches we were the best team in the Champions League. But at the end of the day, we didn't deserve to win it for that collapse alone. Lesson still not learned.
Barcelona have been linked with Neymar again. I don't know what we are thinking if there is truth to that. It's a massive risk considering his recent injury record and how much he would cost, and it would be such a stacked attack that I am not sure how would all the four stars would fit in. Dembele, another huge investment, would suffer from that too.
More significantly, from an older fan's point of view, his departure to Paris and recent actions is why I am against his return. But money talks these days and Barcelona seem ready to swallow their pride. That was already on display when Griezmann joined. Actions like these are the reason everyone will demand perfection, and I am not sure some of the players and especially the manager are up to that task.
Here is hoping. I am already glad we guaranteed ourselves European football one way or another.I think this was even crazier. Now let's get to the champions league
