There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: Ecclesiastes 3:1
It is natural that all good things must come to an end. Though hard to accept, it is an end of a cycle for Barça. It has been days since that traumatising defeat at the Estádio da Luz.
However much painful the loss was, it has to be remembered that the players need our support now more than ever; players who have toiled through a variety of turbulences throughout the season.
None of them deserve to be personally attacked, abused, or insulted. This is something we should bear in our minds while we criticise. They may have hit the rock bottom, but the only way left now is upwards.
We need to fight for what is best for our beloved FC Barcelona. We need to face the trolls and give the players our best in lifting their moods. We should go down together and rise together as well.
This same club we despise today has given us so many memories to cherish and revel in and it is time to pay back our dividends. Our hearts should always shine in the colours of blue and claret red.
It is time we showed the world that we can come back stronger from the ashes. Our loyalty to this club is what makes our fanbase so brilliant and we will never lose faith in the team.
