Pedro and Thiago prove Barcelona are wasting their funds on big money signings

La Liga in the new year has already produced one of the shocks of all shocks. Barcelona only beating Levante 2-1? Crisis! Crisis!

Anyone who watched Levante getting smashed 8-0 by Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey post-holidays would’ve put their Christmas bonuses on Barcelona waltzing nine past the Valencians in the new year. But Barca are one of those sides who usually suffer from the New Year hangover.

The Catalan juggernauts looked out of ideas at times without their talisman Lionel Messi on the pitch, with Andres Iniesta and Xavi playing predictable through balls into the box and Dani Alves, David Villa and Bojan Krkic still yet to shed those Christmas pounds.

But not Pedro. The Canarian was sharp as a whistle, scoring two well-taken goals, and had several opportunities to bag his very first Barca hat-trick.

The story is too old to be commented.

I sure do hope Barcelona don't waste too much money this summer. We have been running at a loss for several years now. No need for new players. Just promote Thiago, Jonathan Dos Santos and Nolito and we'll be good for another 3-4 years.
