Juli Marial (1885-1963) took over as president of FC Barcelona on 1 October, 1906, and like his predecessor Josep Soler, had to steer the club through difficult times in both social and sporting terms
His first period in charge of the club coincided with a major restructuring of the team, but just like the previous season, no titles were won, and neither would there be any the season after.
Marial, who was a first team player when he accepted the position of president, continued to combine both roles, and despite his enthusiasm was unable to resolve a situation that was getting more and more critical. At the end of his presidency, on November 11, 1908, the club had lost a third of its members, and there were now only 38 left, the most loyal. The club was in decline, and it looked like its days were numbered.
