First Hosts Last: Barcelona vs Depor

08 March 2013

You could say that FC Barcelona has been going through a rough patch. The team has lost 3 of its last 4 matches in all competitions by a combined 8-3 and hasn’t kept a clean sheet since January 6. It sounds pretty bad. But Deportivo La Coruña fans would probably kill to be in the position that […]

Knowns, Unknowns, Supporters Sections, and Ultras

07 March 2013

Today has been an interesting day in club news, and not because of anything on the pitch. Reports came out today from Catalunya Radio, that were expanded upon by ARA.cat, linking club president Sandro Rosell with a released 2010 document that alleges to be evidence of a pact between the club and various supporters’ groups, […]

The Third Method

04 March 2013

It’s incredible. It’s appalling. We won’t know what to do until we understand what’s really going down. Everyone seems to be involved … is everyone to blame? It’s a real scandal. I know everyone is feeling a little bummed lately. But there’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned Spanish scandal to buck you right up. Bad […]

RM 2, Barça 1, aka “It has to come from the players”

02 March 2013

For years, Barça has had all the answers, for pretty much every question. But now, after having lost three of its last four matches, we are left with more questions than answers. Feels kinda weird, doesn’t it? I didn’t care whether we won or lost this match, and even predicted a 2-1 loss. But I […]

Another Clasico, Another Day: Real Madrid – Barcelona

01 March 2013

You’re all a bunch of suckers. You’ll be glued to your TVs tomorrow, breathlessly, possibly nervously, finger beer bottles and/or lucky rabbits feet. You’ll don your scarves and jerseys, finagle a few hours of freedom from eye-rolling significant others. And I’ll be laughing. I’m going on vacation. I’m getting away from it. I’m not checking […]

Barça 1, RM 3, aka “Inches make all the difference”

26 February 2013

The Chicago area, and the county in which I live, is having a winter storm. And I’m pretty sure that it’s Jordi Roura’s fault. Almost positive. I ordered some cycling shorts, and the order is delayed. I can guaranTEE that is Roura’s fault. Curse him. And now that the humor is out of the way, […]

Barça 2, Sevilla 1, aka “I wanna be on Tellovision!”

23 February 2013

There is something funny in the reality that the two Liga giants both went into Saturday’s match day as a favorite, only to go down a goal, then rally for a narrow, one-goal victory. Could both colossi have had the same thing on the brain? Maybe, just maybe. And it must have been contagious, because […]

Preview: Ave Sevi-i-lla

23 February 2013

The AVE (Alta Velocidad Española) high-speed trains are a great way in which to travel.  Ave is also a Spanish word for “bird” so the name has a double entendre.  The Sevilla team flew low to Barcelona on Friday night. Six hours instead of 90 minutes in a plane.
