The Return of the Copa: Alaves – Barcelona

29 October 2012

I’m blogging from the middle of a hurricane. Or, well, probably more like the outer edge of a hurricane that is buffeting the area with some decent winds and very high storm surges. The lights are flickering and Mrs. The Lady is doing yoga to an online video. Such are storms in the modern era […]

Rayo Vallecano 0, Barca 5, aka “Same as it ever was … NOT!”

27 October 2012

To start. No, this isn’t a review. I have watched the match only once, and have a spare half-hour before bedtime for my sprinter legs. So call this a glorified comment, in post form. Rayo Vallecano didn’t deserve that manita, really. They played their little hearts out at that closet-sized field of theirs, in front […]

27 October 2012

  Back to the awesome little Madrid stadium that is Campo de Fútbol de Vallecas  – the one with the wall behind one goal, apartment balconies crammed with fans and, hopefully, with a full set of operating floodlights.

Mid-Table and Still Mattering: Rayo Vallecano – Barcelona

27 October 2012

Hello. It’s been a little while since we really had a chance to talk. Life has been busy and all of that stuff you’re not interested in. Last week there was some hullabaloo in Galicia that got a lot of people in a tizzy, but all I really remember is that Jordia Alba scored two […]

Barça 2 – Celtic 1, in which we scored one goal too many for the fourth time

26 October 2012

This is a guest post by Lev. I live in South America. One of the many charms of my chosen stomping grounds are the many camionetas clogging our streets, avenues and highways. Taking their cue from this continent and its people they come in a wide assortment of colors, with black fumes blowing out of their tail pipes […]

Champions League Comments Post

23 October 2012

Forget about the league for a moment: winning tonight will ensure that we sleep gently atop a 5 point lead with 3 matches left to play. By no means will qualification be assured, of course, but the trips to Scotland and Russia will become less foreboding. Especially if Spartak and Benfica can manage a draw […]

Deportivo 4-FC Barcelona 5, aka “Bonkers Magazine has its October centerforld!”

21 October 2012

Has anyone’s heart rate returned to normal yet? What. A. Match. If I was a neutral, I’d probably be, as many commenters are, raving about what a match it was. But I ain’t. What I am is somebody who spent way too much time on pins and needles, physically and psychologically trying to will this […]

Return to the Riazor: Depor – Barcelona

19 October 2012

The weekend arrives like a blast of fresh air. Sure, in this part of the world that blast is actually carrying a rainstorm and chilly temperatures, but whatever, I can deal with that for a return of domestic league football. I wasn’t able to catch a single minute of the international matches—this Friday and Monday […]

Adeu, Andreu Fontas. Alas, we hardly knew ye ….

15 October 2012

Players come, and players go. The club announced today that Andreu Fontas, last seen sitting in the stands next to Jonathan dos Santos, giggling, is going on loan to Mallorca until season’s end. As many of you know, in the case of a serious injury, a club can be granted an exception to the normal […]
