    Behind the wall: How Ronaldinho's free kicks helped spark trend that's taking soccer by storm

    The practice of forming an extra barricade first became commonplace at the elite level in Brazil, where desperate defenders had to improvise a way to counteract set-piece specialists like Ronaldinho, who had a penchant for hitting free kicks below the wall to catch goalkeepers off guard. Ronaldinho enjoyed plenty of success with his decoyed daisy-cutters, including this impudent effort in the 2006-07 Champions League against Werder Bremen.

    Pretty embarassing how Barca have really mistreated Coutinho. First they mis-utilise him by buying him to play in the wrong system. Then send him out on loan, upon his return, they now refuse to play him due to a payment Liverpool are owed.
    What a s****y farce of a club Barcelona has become.
