Get Your Ta Tas Out, Vol. I: The Man in the Pistachio Polo

24 October 2013

While BFB readers are the most informed, insightful, and (surely) attractive in the whole World Wide Web, Gerardo Martino’s appointment as FCB’s new coach this August took many of us by surprise. However, your humble SoMa, who successfully led the Cheeseburg Lil’ Kickers to a 1-5 season this Fall (ba-bam!), is uniquely qualified to appraise […]

Evolution and our beloved football club, aka “Martino is going to need a hug … soon!”

22 October 2013

Yikes. It isn’t often that an opinion piece sparks a post outta me, but this one has done it. But it hasn’t done it out of sheer boneheadedness, which I think the post has in spades. It’s also a question of right questions, wrong conclusions that have their roots in devotion to a player, rather […]

Osasuna 0 – Barça 0: Spots of Sunshine vs Rumors of Rain

20 October 2013

1. This match really doesn’t deserve a full-fledged review, but I will offer up my thoughts anyway. Numbered for easy consumption, you should beware that some might be of the knee-jerk variety. 2. A draw at Osasuna is not the end of the world. It is not even the end of the season. Winning streaks […]

Everybody cheer up!

14 October 2013

[ NOTE:  This post was drafted prior to Barça's October 5th victory over Real Valladolid, when the boards were rather grumpy 'cause we were all ... well, winning, and stuff. So if you're bucked up rather than (what rhymes with "bucked up"?) lately, bookmark this and come back when we lose, or tie, or win again […]

Diving, embellishing, tactics and cheating, aka “This is a man’s world, until it isn’t”

08 October 2013

Neymar is a diver. Come on, right? We all know it, and we knew it when we bought him. Diver. Shameful. Right? Wrong. Further, the campaign to label him one is disgusting. It’s an effort to cover a player with crap before he even has a chance to develop ANY sort of image or reputation […]

Celtic 0, Barça 1, aka “Another day, another test”

01 October 2013

Another day, another moving target for our wee ones. Levante wasn’t fit to be in the Liga. Wait til Malaga. Malaga was down on its luck. Wait til Rayo. Rayo had more possession, we got lucky. Wait til La Real. Yeah, whatever. La Real are playing like crap. Wait to see what happens against Celtic. […]

blitzen awards, the “Where have you been?” edition

26 September 2013

I admit, I’ve been off to a slow start this season. But then I heard that Rio Ferdinand was planning his own awards, the “Footies”, and I was spurred to action! Make no mistake, the blitzens are the premier football awards going. Accept no substitutes! Falling Up Award: Neymar is a diver. Even his biggest […]
