Does Barcelona's heavy defeat at Paris Saint-Germain spell the end of an era?

Barcelona have had their most inconsistent season thus far, and the FC crew debate if their dominance is coming to a close.

On Tuesday night, following their 4-0 Parc des Princes hammering at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain, my colleague Michael Yokhin tweeted: "This is Barcelona's most important and resounding defeat since Milan in 1994." He was referring to the 1993-94 Champions League final, when Johan Cruyff's heavily favored "Dream Team" fell at the hands of Fabio Capello's depleted Milan side.

For those who don't remember, here's a bit of context.

Cruyff's Barca had won four straight La Liga titles and the...

Futures of Unai Emery and Luis Enrique in focus as PSG face Barcelona

Gab Marcotti says Paris Saint-Germain have the ability to rise to the occasion against Barcelona in the Champions League.

The FC crew have their say about which sides will survive the round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League.
Mark Donaldson and Craig Burley make their predictions for the first-leg matches of this week's UCL ties.

Mid-February is probably a bit early for it, but the Champions League round-of-16 clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona has a definite Thunderdome feel. Two men enter -- PSG boss Unai Emery and Barca's Luis Enrique -- and one leaves, whether now or at the end of the season.

Never mind that Emery has been in the job for less than nine months or that Luis Enrique has won eight of the 10 competitions he has entered in just over two-and-a-half years. Both men know they are swimming around...

Selling Aguero not as easy as some think, so Guardiola might have to adapt

The FC crew evaluate Sergio Aguero's future at Man City as Gabriel Jesus continues his strong start.
With Sergio Aguero starting on the bench under Pep, the FC panel think it's the final nail in his coffin with the club.
Pep Guardiola insists Sergio Aguero is still one of Man City's key players despite not featuring regularly recently.

With hindsight, nothing Sergio Aguero said, following his benching for Manchester City's game vs. Swansea on Sunday, was unreasonable.

"I have three months to do my best and try to help the team and we'll see what happens in the future," he said. "Sometimes this happens. When you're on the bench, you have to wait for an opportunity."

Asked specifically whether he was thinking of leaving the club, Aguero replied: "No, no. I have to help the team as much as I can in these three months. Afterward we'll...

Arsenal just not good enough to match Chelsea, praise for Juve and Cameroon

Alejandro Moreno calls out Arsenal for a lack of heart after they were dominated by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

From about the 10th minute onward, Chelsea's 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday was a far more substantial beatdown than the score line indicates. A week ago, Antonio Conte's crew felt that a combined two or more points from the trip to Anfield and the visit of the Gunners would be a decent outcome because at worst it would leave Chelsea six points clear. Instead, they're now nine clear at the top, with the lead over Arsenal stretched to 12 points.

Arsene Wenger felt that Marcos Alonso fouled...

Kevin De Bruyne is the best recent January transfer... who is the worst?

Gab Marcotti gives his take on who won and who lost in the January transfer window.

You want evidence that the game is changing? Consider the fact that La Liga and the Premier League (probably the two strongest leagues in the world) each had a positive net transfer spend during the January window that shut on Tuesday. According to data from Transfermarkt, English top-flight clubs sold players for some $15 million more than they bought, while Spain was also in the black.

Or how about this? Of the 10 most expensive transfers this winter, five involved players going to Chinese...

Referee distracts from Barca's awful performance, Klopp's honesty, more

Gab Marcotti responds to your comments from his weekly 'Marcotti's Musings."

In some ways, the fact that referee Alejandro Hernandez Hernandez (who took charge of Real Betis vs. Barcelona) had the officiating day from hell on Sunday, becoming the butt of all criticism and silly jokes of the "so-bad-they-named-him-twice" variety is a boon to the defending Liga champions. Why? Because it distracts from the fact that this was one of their worst performances of the season.

By the way, even worse than the "ghost goal," the official match report compiled by the referee was...
