Me vs Malaga: Match Comments Post

We take on Malaga at home in what, as always, is a must win game. The league hangs by the tiniest of threads (come on Athletic!), but no matter, to play and play the Barça way. Let’s do it!

Barça: Pinto, Alves, Puyol, Mascherano, Adriano, Keita, Cesc, Iniesta, Cuenca, Messi, Pedro

Malaga: Kameni, Jesús Gámez, Demichelis, Sergio Sánchez, Eliseu, Portillo, Camacho, Cazorla, Duda, Buonanotte, Rondón

This day, this ugly day in NYC, could be a beautiful day for me in my absurd gamble with my friend CJ: Malaga is bound for the Europa league, I tell you! Down with Malaga and boo Weligton! Pellegrini is too scared to play him because he knows Messi would nutmeg him and score a thousand golazos in revenge for his stamp a couple of years ago. BOO WELIGTON. Let that be our battle cry today.

    Ahh I need me a loveblob, If there’s an upside to the league still being mathematically possible, probably means Messi will be getting lots of chances =) as we will have to play strong line-ups at the cost of not giving more minutes to the young uns.

    Hey guys, I just showed up and I missed the first half hour of the match. Just saw the penalty + goal. Can anyone tell me how things have been going so far? And does anyone have links to video of the goals?

    May 2, 2012

    I hear Messi scored a PK. I say I hear it because I can never bear to actually watch him take one. Come to think of it, I even hid my eyes when he scored one against Betis at the Camp Nou and I was in the stands. sad

    • May 2, 2012

      Yeah, I’m always nervous when he takes them too. Always thinking “He’ll miss it, he’ll miss it” but he usually scores to make up for the tension.

    May 2, 2012

    We simply must win. Athletic Club simply must win. Please, no league celebrations at San Mames. Let it happen some other game at some other venue where it won’t hurt as much.

    • hansh
      May 2, 2012

      So, Messi is now 2 ahead in the Pichichi race, meaning the pressure will be on Cristiano tonight, meaning he will be overthinking it and trying to hard to score, which will be Madrid’s downfall, right?

      Probably not. Cristiano could spend 85 minutes picking daisies and still score a hat trick if he put his mind to it.

    Camp Nou singing Guardiola Guardiola a few times now. The mister acknowledged raising his arms, I have never seen him do that. We will all miss him. He’s represents everything this club is and will ever be.

    May 2, 2012

    This games is giving me chills, As Iniesta takes the armband and puts it on Messi as it was lovingly placed by Puyi on his arm a few minutes earlier before he was subbed off. All this in a historic fixture where Messi braks the world record, and the Camp Nou chants for Guadiola in his final games…

    • dean
      May 2, 2012

      One of the most meaningful games in a meaningless fixture.

  13. G6O

    I really hopes he scores 4 more goals and gets 50, I know it is meaningless, the leagues has been lost, but it will still be historic.

      And I hope he scores them on Saturday against Espanyol. 😈

    Has Messi just earned yet another Ballon D’Or?

    • nzm
      May 2, 2012

      I would think so, Gogah.

      The club just has to back him up with a whole lotta press releases to the press and lots of publicity in order to get this out in front of all the voters.

      • dean
        May 2, 2012

        Its contingent on one possibly two players not having stellar performances in the Euro’s also. So basically if Portugal or Germany do not win Euro 2012 Messi should have it, if not it should be a close vote.

    • Gogah
      May 2, 2012

      He definitely deserves it. Leo has ridiculously outrageous numbers this season and has scored in 6 competitions this year (i think).
      His heroics in the club world cup, UCL (this is his best CL campaign + the 5 goals in a knockout tie) and all the other competitions should see him through unless the entire world try very hard to not let an individual receive the honor for 4 consecutive seasons.
      …and just when he missed the penalty against chelsea, I thought to myself, “there goes our champions league and Messi’s ballon d’or”.

    • G6O
      May 2, 2012

      If he keeps scoring like that in the fall, he will deserve it. The problem is that we won’t win much silver this season, and there is an Euro. But even then, the chances of Portugal winning it are very slim so Ronaldo isn’t going to have a much stronger case than him, and even if Germany wins it, there isn’t a German player from Bayern that has had a truly stellar season so that it can be given to him. So basically someone will have to carry their team to the Euro title on his own to make up for the rest of the year.

      Also, the award is global now, so most of the votes come from outside Europe and will probably put less weight on the Euro than the overall performance during the year. So he is the front runner as of now, but let’s see what happens – it would be another historic moment (4 in total and 4 in a row, nobody ever done either), just keep your fingers crossed that we remains healthy; he hasn’t had any injuries for 4 years, that’s a long time (knocks on wood)

      • nzm
        May 2, 2012

        Mario Gomez has done well at Bayern – 41 goals for the season, and 13 for Champions League. I think that places him 1 behind Messi in CL, so if he scores 2 in the final he’ll be the CL leading goal scorer.

        Then, if he does well for Germany, he’d have to be a front runner.

    • mom4

        • nzm

          • May 2, 2012

            As with Messi last season, I suspect that Wrongaldo doesn’t care a whole lot about pichichi.

          • nzm
            May 2, 2012

            Kevin: is that tongue-in-cheek? I can’t tell!

            I’ll answer seriously. 🙂

            Of course it matters to Cristiano – remember the team-mates feeding him the ball to increase his score at the end of last season? He ended up surpassing Messi because Messi sat out a couple of games.

            Messi, himself, said that he was “surprised” that Cristiano managed so many goals at the end.

            If Cristiano doesn’t get Pichichi, then he won’t get the Golden Shoe, and he can kiss goodbye to a chance at Ballon d’Or.

  15. May 2, 2012

    Just because I’m not a fan of any player doesn’t mean that I can’t say 68 goals. Hoooollllleeee crap, that’s pretty amazing. And I can’t think of a player coming along who can even touch that. Wrongaldo closest that I know, but I don’t see him improving in the same way that I see Messi improving. He’s 27 and still has many years left in the game, but Messi has tons of improvement coming still.

  16. mom4
    May 2, 2012

    So we’re left after this game with pride in our hearts and a burning question:

    Who is pregnant?

  17. dean
    May 2, 2012

    Could be, Puyi does not score frequently enough to know if its a recent pregnancy or an older one.

      • dean
        May 2, 2012

        You sly one, did not catch that. But he just quelled the rumours said it was for his best friend Javi.

  18. May 2, 2012

    I wasn’t there, so I can’t speak to the context of this quote but on the surface, not digging it. Yes, we should have had some penalties that we didn’t get. But we also should have scored plenty of goals that we didn’t, which would have more than made up for denied penalties. Anyhow ….

    RT @barcastuff: Guardiola: “Two penalties? Now it’s not really needed anymore…It’s a bit late in the season to start giving us penalties.”

    Guardiola: “Referees decided the league? A league is very long, a lot of things have happened, we’ve kept quiet, the images are there.”

    Guardiola: “Madrid is rightly champion, but many, many things have happened that have been overlooked”. #fcblive

    • G6O
      May 2, 2012

      Had only half of the penalty calls (in both ours and Madrid’s games) have been called correctly, it would have been us up by a 2 or 3 points going into the last classico. And it would have been a very very different game.

      Both penalties today were softer than most of those game-deciding calls that didn’t go our way.

      But all of that is indeed long forgotten and overlooked. Pep is fully within his moral right to say that.

    • jordi™
      May 2, 2012

      At one stage we were 13 points behind them.How ever good they were this season, it hasnt been 13 or 10 points better than us.In that way pep is right because the difference should never have been so brutal,

    • Helge
      May 2, 2012

      Shot of the year, but not goal of the year imo 🙂

      Nonetheless great to see Chelsea miss out on the CL qualification (at least via the Premier League) – they are not even in a EL spot right now.

        • Helge
          May 2, 2012

          Maybe even if they lose because Liverpool is already qualified through Carling Cup ?!?

      • mega_tajh
        May 2, 2012

        If Chelsea wins the Champions League against Bayern Munich and finish outside the top 4 they go through into next years group stage, at the expensive of the finishing 4th placed team.

        Which against all odds can happen.

  19. Helge
    May 2, 2012

    Why is Athletic Bilbao at home, in the Cathredral, renowned for being tough to beat – but Real Madrid won 6 from their last 7 visits there…
    The price for Bilbao is they can watch the Madridista celebrate in their stadium. Well done!

    • Ryan
      May 2, 2012

      I think the hand ball rule only works against them, for one. And they all seem to have the finishing ability of Dani Alves.

    Whatever… congrats to EE for winning the league. They have been the more consistent team over the season.

    I won’t agree with people saying that EE are better than us though. They’ve not won the direct comparison in la Liga, they have lost in the CdR (and Supercup) against us. All in all, pretty equal seasons, a draw between us and them imo. The clear winner would have been determined by the CL title.

    • ciaran

        Atmosphere was a bit quiet at times but the stadium soon picked up whatever chant the Boixos Nois started. Pep’s wave to the fans was emotional & Messi’s 3rd goal will go down in history – and I can say I was there!

    Unreal. Messi still has 4 games to add to the total. It was interesting to see the breakdown of his goals, goals per game, and competitions scored in compared to Gerhard Muller’s on FCB web site. Congrats to the team for breaking the all time goals record for Barca in Liga! Great season! Wonderful regardless of what bandwagoners or think.

      • nzm

        yes – 3. vs. Espanyol and Betis in La Liga, and Bilbao in the CdR.

    May 3, 2012

    I liked what Pep said. Just to let everybody know we’re not stupid.

    Still, congrats’ to Madrid. More often they looked really impressive. Winning here and at San Manes. Totally deserved overall.

    I wonder now how teams will approach the games against them next season, as it seems that in 4 years of Pep a general best approach against us has been identified.

    I wonder if we’ll try to strengthen our squad in numbers too? Does not look necessary on paper as the difference is just of 2 players, but we were ill prepared to deal with so many injuries. I say this because i would like our club to retain most of our players.

    • Laurentiu88
      May 3, 2012

      and, should we offer Javi Martinez a chance to defeat Ronaldo and EE next season now? 🙂

    • Laurentiu88
      May 3, 2012

      weren’t they saying that Pep screams during training all the time 🙂 the man was a perfectionist. that’s why maybe is so hard to imagine him at some other club. where would he find such players again?

      Thanks for the article Blitzen! I love the pics of La Masia days. Have Pep & Tito changed at all? I know their older, but seriously, they look the same. Messi’s youth pic is hilarious. They should find that barber and shoot him on sight! lol

    How awesome is this? On May 27th the club will put on a game of futsal that will be made up of two teams of FCB first-team players, each side coached by Pep or Tito. This is being put on in honour of the Marathon Against Poverty sponsored by TV3 and Catalonia Radio.

        I’m not sure what agreement the club has made with the RFEF on the timing. There won’t be any Barça players in the friendly match on the 26th, that’s for sure. I would like to think they have permission to play the charity match on the 27th & then travel immediately afterwards. Probably not , though. Poo. If I don’t get to see Iniesta playing futsal I will be very angry. 😈

        • G6O
          May 3, 2012

          Will Messi and Alexis play? Seeing at least those would make it worthwhile. But yes, losing Iniesta is a big blow in such a game, he is the most futsaly player of the whole team (must have been a lot of evenings playing in the hallways of La Masia back in the days 🙂 )

    Arbeloa what an utterly useless player. He’s completely flatfooted and lucky to be in a national team that has Xavi and co.

    Looking at Pep’s comments I can’t help but feel that theres a dig towards Rosell- who should of been more outspoken and fought the clubs corner. Thats what I miss about Laporta

    • Jim
      May 3, 2012

      Not sure I understand the digs at Rosell I’ve could have understood the resentment at the start but to me he hasn’t really done a lot wrong ( other than prevent me becoming a Soci which I was seriously thinking about 🙁 ) He has handled Pep’s departure pretty well and made the only decent appointment possible imo.

      Not saying he’s particularly likeable but most of his decisions even if we disagree are close calls.

      • Dave
        May 3, 2012

        The dig may be ‘we were silent for too long’.I respect Rosell as a shrewd business man (imo we needed the Sponsorship deal despite what romantics might say) but I feel he’s too politically correct and should of been more vocal this year in fighting Barca and Pep’s corner.
        Too often imo, Pep was not protected from the Madrid cavern and about ref decisions. This has ultimately contributed to Pep’s departure.

        Furthermore he handled the Cruff situation poorly (despite the fact that Cruff has a reputation for being awkward and stubborn).

        Despite Laporta’s alleged poor financial management, he was a real populist and fought the clubs corner bullishly. I agreed at the time that Laporta was been overly Catalan just to possibly forward a future political campaign but we need a pitbull fighting the clubs corner.

        Taking the moral high ground is all good, but its not working in La Liga.

        I fear that Tito will not be protected sufficiently against the cavern. If you look at Mourinho he has that reptile Elaio whateverhisnameis spouting bile in the direction of everyone.

        The propaganda battle matters imo

    Just want to say that Pelligrini is a class act. His Villareal team with Roman were a breath of fresh air. And admittedly credit must be given to his job at Real, where he made the classico’s and the league very difficult. Such a contrast with that current lizard. Pelligrini’s contribution to Madrid though will be forgotten much like Raneiri’s at Chelsea. Sad

      yes, there is some history between the two 🙂 i wonder how would it be for him to play against us? can you actually ‘want’ to you then?

      not happy to see these sort of questions when the man is not even gone…can you imagine in the future whenever we draw some game or god forbid lose one questions of Pep return will rise instantly. Pep shadow over the club will be immense. Another reason, presumably, why Tito’s appointment is a smart move.

      He needs to stay! He has mastered DM position on top of his natural CM position.

      well i think the question is what are Tito’s plans? which positions he thinks need to be strength, what changes he might bring in terms of players and tactics if any.

      so far the hypothesis is that Tito is even more attack minded than Pep. I wonder what he might try to change? Really exiting.

    I guess now we can identify not signing any defenders last year as a key mistake in our season. 🙁

    it seems that Alexis won’t play in the derby as he is not fit yet. maybe some improvement can be made in regards to him too as it looks that his muscular problems are recurring quite often now.

    FYI–The Barcelona ladies football team (current league leaders) can win the league title today if they beat Athletic Bilbao (currently in second). Barca is losing 2-1 at the half, but the second half just got underway. The game is being live-streamed here: http://www.esport3.cat/directes/esport3/

    Thanks to the ladies at @FutfemEnglish for the info!

    for some, CR brings on comparison’s with Munch’s painting The Scream.

    to me he still resembles a sex doll when celebrating goals. so weird how the guy manages to symbolize (almost) everything that is stupid with our world. like the new kids in clubs these days and everything wrong, from fashion to music to ideas. (thou’ i am sure this is largely a partial image of him,i am sure (hope) there is a more complex CR)

    a couple of things gathered from the official site:

    first, eric cantona visited todays practice. and thierry henry visited a week or two ago. everybody wants a piece.

    second, here is a quote from the website, from pep’s presser:

    Sobre algunos de los comentarios que se han hecho sobre su persona, ha sido muy breve: “Desde hace tiempo se ha intentado hacer ver que soy como no soy. Que me dejen ser como soy”.

    translation:

    Regarding some of the commentaries that have been made regarding his person (i.e., regarding pep), he has been very brief: “For a long time attempts have been made to make it look like I am someone that I am not. Let me be as I am.”

    anyone know what this is about?

      I don’t know about Eric Cantona, but Thierry Henry was in Barcelona to visit his close friend Eric Abidal after his surgery. Of course he was going to drop by a training session to say hello to everyone.

      As for the second question, I don’t know what specific remarks he was referring to today, but both Mourinho and his spokesdog have implied that Pep presents one face to the world when inside he is just as arrogant and manipulative as they are.

      I think Pep’s comment is an acknowledgement/jab at Mourinho’s mouthpiece Paramés.

      “@PuntoPelota: Guardiola:”Nuestro comportamiento siempre ha sido modélico”-Aqui esta la confirmacion de q aun hay angelitos!”

      Translation: Guardiola says Our behavior has always been exemplary. Paramés says: Here’s the confirmation that angels still exist.

      Pep’s full quote is this(in response to a question about Thong Boy giving Javi Martinez the middle finger): “Todo es importante, saber ganar y saber perder. Nosotros lo hemos intentado hacer lo mejor posible, nos habremos equivocado alguna vez, es normal. Pero nuestro comportamiento ha sido modélico y estoy muy orgulloso”

    This Liga season, we have the best goal difference under Guardiola.
    Inspite of pep and a lot here saying that ee are deserved winners, i feel We deserved to win the league and are the best team in Spain. of course Pep is a gracious man in defeat, but there is bound to be the herd that are too much in love with Pep and try to emulate the attitude he projects.
    Barca have played the supposedly deserved champions six times this year alone (enough games to judge who is better) and come out on top with an aggregate score of 13-10, kicking them out of two competitions in the process and still having a better aggregate in the liga, which we eventually conceded to ee.
    they too have a better GD, but if one counts the penalties that were given to both teams against the number of legit penalties that were denied, we could have an accurate picture of the league table.
    Sadly any cries of conspiracy will only alert the herd.
