2. The Barcelona 2006/2007 player by player season review. It’s an excellent read, so go check it out.

3. Barcelona played a friendly match against South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns, beating them 2-1. Get the match report here.

4. Barcelona’s pre-season includes trips to Scotland and Asia. For the full itinerary, catch the Barca 2007/2008 pre-season fixture list.
