    Offside. Phew. Should never have come to that, though. I saw that goal coming a mile away. Poor defending.

    Barça B’s defense is looking kind of suspect. Alcorcon don’t have much of the ball, but when they attack, they look dangerous.

    • March 26, 2011

      ^ This

      My thoughts exactly.

    What a terrible offside call. Nolito was in his own half when the ball was played. This match should be 2-0 to Barça B.

    • blitzen
      March 26, 2011

      Not in his own half, but definitely onside.

        Looked to me like he was right in front of the line. But yeah, he was on.

    edu oriol’s having a good game. fontas stationed in the back has really freed him up. & i think that’s largely due to alcorcon playing two dudes up top.

    Mueller goal!

    It’s really cold in NJ right now, kind of glad I’m not going to the USA-Argentina game.

    I’m happy with the game so far, but the defense needs to pull their socks up. Alcorcon may only be a Segunda team, but they have a lot of self-belief after what they did to Real Madrid. They will take every chance they get.

    Best players of the half: JDS, Thiago, Fontas, Edu Oriol.

    Worst: Montoya and Armando. Too many lapses of concentration.

    Que golazo de Nolito. Thiago beautiful setup once again. He’s too nice.

    • blitzen
      March 26, 2011

      Yes, Thiago again! He has been great this whole game!

    • blitzen
      March 26, 2011

      LOL, Thiago muscled one of our own players off the ball to set up that goal! He has a lot of self-confidence, that kid. He is going to be a real star. And I love his speed, we can use that.

  12. Jnice

    Thiago and JDS work really hard in midfield. They can pass, but they can also make great tackles.

  13. Miguel
    March 26, 2011

    now they’re just showing off. 🙂

    Do we know yet if Rafinha is being officially promoted to the B team this summer?

    • Jnice
      March 26, 2011

      Not sure, but I think he, Javi Espinosa, and Deulofeu have a good chance of being promoted.

      • blitzen
        March 26, 2011

        I don’t know much about Espinosa, but Deulofeu is a bit of class. Pep likes him too, I think. Hasn’t he called him up to train with the first team a couple of times?

      • Miguel
        March 26, 2011

        recently pep’s called up deulofeu. not sure how many times. i see at as a good sign.

      • Jnice
        March 26, 2011

        Yeah, they both have trained with the first team, but Deulofeu has trained with ’em a few more times.

        If Deulofeu can keep his ego/attitude in check, he can become a great player. Espinosa seems more grounded, so I have no worries.

        By a writer who watched Spain U-17s today:

        Watching Spain U-17’s with my mouth open everytime Deulofeu gets the ball. Barça fans…be very excited.

        re Deulofeu; They put 3 players on him in the 2nd half & he beat them all time & time again. Agility, speed, strength, technique. EL CRACK.

        But how tall is he? 😛

      • Miguel
        March 26, 2011

        el crack? heh. i can’t wait for deulofeo to make the jump to the b-team so i can watch him on a consistent basis.

      • Jnice
        March 26, 2011

        He’s like 5’10, so he’s a giant in Barça terms lol.

    Nolito is offside almost as often as David Villa. 😛

    Sergi Roberto! Yay!

    i like the way luis enrique & pep are managing the youth team & its expectations. this really shows they have a long term vision. or maybe not, luis enrique is taking off, right? i wish him well. i wonder who barcelona has in mind to coach the b-team next year, though? luis enrique was the perfect dude for it.

      is Cocu available?

      • Miguel
        March 26, 2011

        that’s a brilliant idea! i wiki’d him & it says he’s the assistant manager for psv. i totally see it.

    muniesa got flattened. ouch. i’ve fallen like that on my tailbone. not fun.

  19. blitzen

    I missed that. Nolito and Thiago off, Vazquez and ??? on?

    • Jnice
      March 26, 2011

      Carmona, I think.

  20. Jnice
    March 26, 2011

    Great pass by Victor Vazquez. Benja should’ve scored.

    • blitzen
      March 26, 2011

      Benja has long periods where I forget that he on the field, then he will suddenly do something good. Not sure what to think about him.

      • Jnice
        March 26, 2011

        I think he isn’t good at all lol.

  21. jordi™

    Guys,Armando is the official vice captain after Vasquez.Since they hardly start, fontas and Soriano are the on field captains if that makes any sense.

    • Jnice
      March 26, 2011

      I thought that was the case, I remember reading that early in the season. That makes perfect sense, thanks.

      You watch the whole match?

      • jordi™
        March 26, 2011

        Only the 2nd half, my stream was like a year behind till i finally realized >=/

    Klose again! He really steps up his game for the Mannschaft, doesn’t he?

    Portugal-Chile on right now. Great chance for people to see Coentrao and Sanchez play for those of you who haven’t yet.

      March 26, 2011

      i miss bielsa. why isn’t he coaching a team in la liga? or, better yet, barca b?!

    • Para
      March 26, 2011

      I’ve ‘found’ Coentrao, but do you know what number Sanchez is? my stream’s in portuguese, so I’m struggling a little.

      • Jnice
        March 26, 2011

        Umm, he’s number 7 and has colorful boots on.
