Today we’re talking to Simon Kuper about his new book, Barca: The Inside Story of the World’s Greatest Football Club.
Simon talks to us about the Cruyff revolution, the history of Barca’s Messi strategy, and what the path out of crisis might be.
Plus there’s Eoin McSegue, geese, sulks and control freaks.
