Liga Liveblog: Osasuna – Barça

Hey all: I may or may not be around for the match because of the personal life, so if you’re up for running this liveblog, let me know at team[at]barcelonafootballblog[dot]com and I’ll get you set up, even if you’ve never done it before. If you have, well, then we’re in business.

    Has anyone read this article? It’s one of the funniest in goal.com! 😀

    So this is a gallery of some pretty girls trying out to be Barça cheerleaders. What’s noteworthy is not actually the women, but the fact that on the side there’s a typo: Casting cheesleaders? Haha.

    There’s also a typo on EMD’s article about RM: Pellegini (missing the R).

      damn. so i’m either that doll from saw tonight(i have his cheeks but not his cleft chin, i’ll have to shadow that in), teen wolf in his basketball outfit w/a hint of multiple sclerosis, or now a barca cheesleader. decisions. decisions.

      poor inginiero. he never shoulda left villarreal. aragones next? rafa benitez? real needs to start playing mahamadou over lass.

    hey i can run the liveblog if you like, also RM down to 10 men against getafe. albiol sent off for shirt pulling.

    i almost feel sdorry for rm. almost.

    • Boat Forever
      October 31, 2009

      Looks like nothing good is going to happen for EE, feel sorry for Albiol… Would definitely helped Valencia to a better position this time because all they lack is defense! At the same time I remember Perez face & seems like every thing’s all right, after all this is justice to football 🙂

    Albiol gets a stright red card at minute 28!

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      The best part is that now their backline is:

      Arbeloa-Pepe-SergioRamos-Marcelo

  5. SoccerMom
    October 31, 2009

    What is up with these crazy tarjetas? Albiol and Marcelo and Xabi?

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      To be fair, the ref hasn’t given a yellow to any of the Madrid players that have dove in the box.

    Some body has good stream for Juventus match?!? Wanna watch the match for Luca Cigarini 🙂

    I want me some Albin in this game.

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      Woot… commentators just said he was warming up…

  8. October 31, 2009

    LOLz. RM is playing like 10 times better after the Albiol red card. 😀

    • lovelymofo
      October 31, 2009

      They always play better after getting a player sent off. I remember last year it would happen and then they would go on to win. But hey, this is a brand new season, so you never know.

      Getafe would go a long way in making people forget about their obnoxious BURGER KING sponsor if they could pull out a win today.

      • ElShowDeJason
        October 31, 2009

        Say what you will about it… But I REALLY wan’t me a whopper right now.

        I’m so easily influenced 🙁

            I just saw pictures of the Getafe shirts…oh my GOD! HAHAHA!

            You can pull the shirt over the head and suddenly you’re THE KING!!!!!

    • October 31, 2009

      Hey, HEY!!! Leave the Burger King shirts alone! Those things are awesome. 😀

      Kaka is seeing acres of open field now that they are playing for the counter. This is when he is at his best.

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      word. Thats what i was saying a while ago.
      commentators said he was warming up around the 40th minute mark, so he might start the half…

  9. Vj
    October 31, 2009

    Damn you Albiol.. why did I put you in my Fantasy League team? x)

    Is this game as exciting as last season?

      Wrong place to ask ? Are you kidding me ? Mwahahah , barcelona fans are obsessed with real madrid so no my friend this is very much the right place to ask

  11. ElShowDeJason
    October 31, 2009

    They say Albin is getting ready to enter.

    Raul, Van Nistelrooy, and Gago warming up.

    yup, albin is on for Boateng.

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      I love Nistelrooy. But can’t cheer for him 🙁

      FUCK! Higuain just scored.

      • lovelymofo
        October 31, 2009

        Ugh. Just saw that. Dumb Getafe. That’s what they get for being all flopsy on the edge of their own box.

      • ElShowDeJason
        October 31, 2009

        that was some terrible marking. Just Terrible.

  12. Helge
    October 31, 2009

    Getafe plays really bad since the sent-off. I have only watched since minute 30, but I have seen several chances for Real and the lead is actually deserved…

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      Blasphemy!

      just kidding, Madrid always play better with 10 damn them… fuck… another onee!

  13. ElShowDeJason
    October 31, 2009

    I expect Madrid to play defensive now. Probably Gago will come on, and they will play three DMs Alonso-Lass-Gago.

  14. ElShowDeJason
    October 31, 2009

    WTF… Higuain again… 2-0 with 10 men

    • Alexinho
      October 31, 2009

      Concede two goals with a man-advantage that started in minute 28? Solo en La Liga…

  15. jordi
    October 31, 2009

    hell didn albin start in the 1st place. never trust michel.. 2-0

  16. October 31, 2009

    Hahahaha! Higuain definitely gets super powers when a red card is shown to RM! It is clear what Maradona should do to win the world cup. He should just have somebody get sent off at which point Pipita’s superpowers will kick in.

    • Miguel
      October 31, 2009

      i thought maradona shooting himself in the head was the only way for argentina to win the world cup?

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      How about starting Henize and Higuain together 🙂

  17. eklavya
    October 31, 2009

    albin is freakin’ great for Getafe and the mighty Burger King jerseys 😀

  18. ElShowDeJason
    October 31, 2009

    I love how Getafe always tease us with their “feisty” starts to the games, but in the end, they always bend over and take it. 🙁

  19. Helge
    October 31, 2009

    Wow, Getafe kicks ass^^ It’ a derby, they are one man more but they play absolutely crappy…

  20. Vj
    October 31, 2009

    So, if we lose today, the leadership would change hands?

  21. October 31, 2009

    Pipita is going like “you really want to keep starting the Frenchman with the shitty hair cut over ME!?!?”

      • eklavya
        October 31, 2009

        well its true higuain is x10 better than benzema

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      shitty hair cut?
      how about shitty soccer player.

  22. ElShowDeJason
    October 31, 2009

    Oh, common Soldado, at least pretend like you want to score!

    He “passed it lazily past the outside of the post”

  23. Kxevin
    October 31, 2009

    Getafe sucks. Tried to watch some, but couldn’t stand it when I saw them playing as if they were a man down. And that’s the 8th-place side?

  24. Boat Forever
    October 31, 2009

    Okay now that Benzema is taken out, if Madrid drop points today they sure are gonna sack Pellegrini no waiting even until CL mid week match!!

    • Miguel
      October 31, 2009

      these are exigent circumstances. i think a tie and he still gets to keep his job, atleast til midweek.

  25. October 31, 2009

    Iker in St. Iker mode, Higuain in Super Pipita Clutch mode….

    Yup. Getafe are fucked.

  26. ElShowDeJason
    October 31, 2009

    40 minutes til game time, are the line-ups out?

  27. October 31, 2009

    Can we please get Pipita a cape?

    I hate RM but damn, I LOVE Pipita as a player. Dude is the shit.

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      Dude, i hate MAdrid and Argentina, and still love Higuain!

    Getafe’s defense looks terrible against the break.

  32. October 31, 2009

    Valdés; Puyol, Piqué, Chygrynskiy, Abidal; Busquets, Xavi, Keita; Iniesta, Messi e Ibra

    Omg Getafe are so shit. Why do teams always do this against Madrid. I guarantee Getafe dont play like this when they play us. They could have won this game!

    • jordi
      October 31, 2009

      they didnt, remember how fortunat we were to not be 2-0 down before ibra and messi scored.

      • Miguel
        October 31, 2009

        no. because stupid goltv’s satellite feed went down.

  34. Miguel
    October 31, 2009

    nice pass, almost, by the coach’s son.

  35. ElShowDeJason
    October 31, 2009

    We may bitch about having payed 12 million Euros for Hleb, and getting nothing out of him…

    But Real payed 60something million Euros for Kaka, and he hasn’t been that much more productive than Hleb. He just takes up space really.
    Same goes for Benzema. 35 million Euros, and they would have been better off keeping Negredo.

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      This reminds me. Why is Kaka starting over Diego for Brazil? At some point performances have to count more than one’s name.

    • Boat Forever
      October 31, 2009

      True… The thought os that Negredo bitch returning to EE sens few shivers down my spine, I know I’m exaggerating but he’s sure better than Benzema for them! And I thought Benzema is an Ibra in making for EE looking at his pre-season form!!

    Put cascuero on and lets see if pepe hasanoter episode

  37. ElShowDeJason

    Raul comes on, Higuain gets his deserved applause.

  38. ElShowDeJason
    October 31, 2009

    since Osasuna wears Red Jerseys, do we get to use our Yellow ones?

    • Miguel
      October 31, 2009

      that’s a good question. they brought good luck last year.

      • Boat Forever
        October 31, 2009

        Do we even have any yellows left? I’m ashamed not to remember our third kit 🙁

        • ElShowDeJason
          October 31, 2009

          Last year’s 2nd is always our 3rd for the current year.

          Yellow, with red and blue stripe going down left side through crest. Very nice..

    • Alexinho
      October 31, 2009

      That’d be most excellent, but I imagine we’ll see our home colors, away.

  39. Khairallah
    October 31, 2009

    Did Getafe vote against using fullbacks for defense?
    It’s always 2 on 2 :S

  40. Kxevin
    October 31, 2009

    Hey, hell of a goal this morning by He Who Is Not Coming in the Arsenal match.

    I want us to destroy Osasuna. I do. An early goal will open the floodgates, I think.

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      As do all of us Kxevin, as do all of us.

      watching Getafe and this shit performance puts me in the mood to watch good footy.

    • Miguel
      October 31, 2009

      he who’s rumors sell mad newspapers for sport & emd, yup. i still think he can play the iniesta role.

    • Alexinho
      October 31, 2009

      I even named it: “that goal against spurs that made me so happy”

      • Alexinho
        October 31, 2009

        Things are looking up in Gunnerworld, indeed…a great performance from everyone, all errors early on were fixed by the second. Even Bendtner played well while he was on.

  41. Corrine

    October 31, 2009

    Napoli hits back from being 2-0 down to lading 3-2!! Juventus, what’s up!? That’s why I said Barca & Sevilla have this huge burden of trying to curb the media-favorite, overrated EPL dominance! Two clubs representing 2 countries vs 4 clubs representing the vilan 🙁

    • Miguel

  46. Jose34
    October 31, 2009

    I am not surprised that Getafe eventually layed down and showed their bellies. The Getafe management is heavily permeated by Madridistas (no kidding, their president is actually a Real Madrid member), and many of the Real Madrid reserves are actually signed for Getafe.

  47. ElShowDeJason

    • ElShowDeJason
      October 31, 2009

      i forget who asked, if we lose tonight, will we still be 1st place.

      it depends on the score. Since we are currently tied on points with Madrid, but have the game to play.

      if we lose 1-0 to osasuna, we will still be 1st.

      but we are going to win. so… yeah…

  52. Ramzi
    October 31, 2009

    Aranda + Pandiani, a big challenge for the two center backs we started. Hopefully we will always have either Puyol or Abidal as a third CB.

    Resting Yaya is good, he will play a deciding role in the CL.

  53. Alexinho
