Barça 4 – Málaga 1, as twenty-two beats one hundred

02 June 2013

This review was supposed to be about the game. About how Lord Tito sent out eleven knights, namely Pinto, Montoya, Piqué, Mascherano, Jordi Alba, Busquets, Xavi, Cesc, Iniesta, Villa and Pedro to fend off the Andalusian invaders. About how we dismembered the enemy at our doorstep with three quick goals before they could even raise […]

Going Gently Into that Good Night, Smiling

30 May 2013

I began writing regularly about FC Barcelona in 2007. The 6 years since have been a learning experience that has enriched my life. Besides the daily interactions with “real life” friends I have met through this blog and its prior incarnation at The Offside, I have been exposed to a wide variety of information, cultural […]

Merci, Abidal …. aka “Don’t let the door hit you where God split you”

30 May 2013

The club has taken a great many decisions in its long, storied history, but none that I find more detestable than the decision to say goodbye today to Eric Abidal. This is a club that bills itself as “mes que un club.” That phrase has nothing to do with any footballing aspirations. It is socio-political, […]

The Neymar deal is done, so now what, aka “Give hair a chance”

27 May 2013

22 May 2013

Since it’s silly season (almost), and we’ve got no serious posts lined up right now, let’s play a little game! I posed this question a couple of years ago, but we’ve got a lot of new people around the blog since then, so I think this would be a good time to ask again: What […]

Barça 2 – Valladolid 1, as if we only had three midfielders

20 May 2013

One down, two to go. Instead of enjoying our last games of football most fans, myself included, spend more time thinking/worrying/wondering/talking/arguing about how we need to improve our squad for next year. Never mind that in this new age, where draws are losses and what were previously called losses are better known as the end of […]
