Synopsis

Barcelona are the greatest football team in the world, the greatest for a generation and possibly the greatest of all time.This is the untold inside story of how the best and most loved football team in the world came to redefine how the game is played.We start with the 2011 Champions League final at Wembley, the game that ended the debate about whether Barcelona were the greatest team in the world and began a new one: are they the best ever?We are inside the winning dressing room and inside the mind of the team's coach, Pep Guardiola.From there, the focus is on each of the iconic personalities of this team, telling its story through them, from its genesis in the late 1980s to their coronation in London: Guardiola; his mentor, Johan Cruyff; Xavi; Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi, perhaps the greatest footballer of all time.

Barca: The Making of the Greatest Team in the World

Quality read
January 3rd, 2013
I would recommend that any football fan read this quality book which explains why Barca are the best team that I have ever seen in my lifetime. Also if I was a man city fan I would be very excited about their appointment of Txiki Begiristain, as he was instrumental in Barca's success and particularly the appointment of Guardiola rather than Mourinho. I reckon if Mancini goes then Begiristain will bring Pep to Man City and if he is allowed to follow the Barca model then they could dominate particularly as the Man City owners would seem more likely to have the patience to allow Pep / Txiki to build that they would never get at the likes of Chelsea! Again read the book and you'll know what I mean!
