Revisiting an Old Friend: Tie-Breakers
In my fantasy life, I’m a Barca-crazed contributor over at Barcelona Football Blog. In my real life, I’m a full-time journalist at the Chicago Tribune, based in Chicago, Illinois.
Y.E.S! Peanuts!!! >:D 😀
But seriously, has it been snowing like that in other parts of the world where people from this blog live? Certainly not here 😯
Well, in Germany we’ve had snow for about 2 months, then it stopped for 2 weeks, but since last friday, everything’s covered in white again 🙂
Villa just missed 2 sitters and Canales is not really impressing me. Have fun with him, Real Madrid.
I know someone who is a lot hotter than Canales, Romelo Lukaku. He’s 16, but wouldn’t it be nice to have him as a replacement for Ibra in 3 or 4 years? He’s destined to be the new Didier Drogba. I really wish he could stay some more years @ RSC Anderlecht and then, if he keeps developing so positively, join us.
I commented in the Almeria review with a question: Is Barcelona only a great team at home this season? And I kind of got panned–but I want to put it out there again because I think there could be a lot of opinions on this, and I think that it would be a fair point to say that right now, we are a home-team.
2-1 Getafe, in a great performance with ten men.
Then Atletico 2-1, with two soft goals, some great play, but also some pretty bad play.
Then 4-0 Racing, in a hammering that came way too easy for the quality of the play.
Then Stuttgart 1-1, where we looked terrible in the first half and only sturdy in the second.
Then 2-1 Malaga in a great display that deserved 10 goals for us, but was damn near a draw.
Then Almeria 2-2 in a quite mediocre performance?
I think it’s legitimate to say that recently we’ve been good or even great at home, but mediocre away. Not a good development, but far from the worst thing in the world.
Not a bad question. I have to think about it more.
I think it has as much to do with the quality and width of the Camp Nou.
David Navarro from Valencia has just been sent off. Anybody knows for how many matches the other 2 red-carded players from last match have been banned?
Chaos In Barcelona Right Now, I just Talked To My Sister, She Works Right Outside The City And It took Her 5 Hours To get Home(She lives in Born) and said that all the trains were shut down, and took an hour to go 3 miles by car. She said that no one knows what to do bc they havent had a snow storm this heavy in almost 50 years. Everyone just looked puzzled and the city shut down. Pretty funny stuff. Good to see our guys out there in shorts practicing.
Are bloggers really defending Ibrahimovic? C’mon! He had a meltdown in that match. I have seen the video in the last post, and he attacked the almeria player. No way that red card is rescinded.
Oh yeah, barca needs to improve quickly 🙁
From my perspective, the Almeria player sold the hell out of some contact in the box. I just didn’t see a “meltdown.” I saw a player who was pissed about getting fouled every time he touched the ball. Those are the breaks of the game, though. But I didn’t see anything that warranted a straight red.
the definition of getting pissed to the point of getting a red card is a meltdown….I think
No meltdown, shouldn’t have been a red. Get a grip.
missed the match.was in Aussie( bloody expensive internet), watched the apparent foul on youtube, was watching it over 10 times, still didn’t see anything worthy of a red card.
last match ibra had a goal disallowed and now a red card. im not an ibra fan but i feel for him atm.
oh wait, the red is for kicking out. i was focusing on his arm movement.
