Canadian, cule, corporate wage slave. Came late to the beautiful game, but fell under FCB's spell in 2006 and never looked back.


  1. in as much i’d hate to say it,i would say it nevertheless,I wish we were among those clubs bidding farewell to their managers at this season’s end,i mean,having in mind that a new manager awaits and anticipating the new revolution in the team especially when the anticipated manager is more proven than the to-be-replaced one,its such a relief feeling.makes me wonder if tito is good enough or is he a puppet to rosell just like mou enslaved perez and the whole madrid board,jorge.v wasn’t in to lick mou’s ass to be rewarded with a woeful three sick trophies in three seasons for a ‘high profiled manager’ like mou,NO,he left,though he was forced out by perez,coutersy of mou-ron’s toxic injections,it doesn’t erase the that valdano was a proffessional hypocrite,wont forget a bitter gesture he made on messi sometime ago when the going was good between him and real.To tito now,he’s hasn’t convinced me or anyone of his capabilities,i have never seen him make those game changing substitution yet,i’ll prefer Bielsa anyday

    1. He has convinced me that he needs an illness free season before I can judge but has made a pretty good start.. The only doubt I have is over his health and I trust him to make that decision.

    2. Sure. Bielsa did such a fabulous job at Athletic this season, after all.

      With the pretty much same squad that Guardiola just won a Copa last season, Vilanova won the Liga in record-setting style. During the season hr also jad to deal with cancer, treatments and an astounding rash of injuries, including to Messi, at the worst time of the season.

      And he is on thin ice? Really?

    1. what do you xpect,gate fee’s pretty high.but stadium should be full,its final day of the tje season

    2. Actually, in spain, there’s still two games.
      Espanyol vs barca
      barca vs malaga

  2. Wow EE is really getting whipped from every corner of the football world,this one’s so embarassing,MADRID EMPTY BUS HAHA

    mourinho is such a poison,he destroyed a once respected club,suits them well though,seems the EVIL EMPIRE IS COMING TO AN END!

    1. Haha. That bus was meant for the celebration. Can happen to any club that loses in a final. Same with t-shirts. Every club will prepare a t-shirt beforehand.

  3. OT:

    I have a question that’s worrying me a as fan.

    One a physical/health standpoint, how truly ready is Tito to handle the physical/mental/emotional demands that are going to be placed upon him next season?

    I know they are different characters but if Pep aged so much in four season while physical healthy, what then of Tito?

    On one hand i’m happy for him to show that victory can be achieved through the willingness of the human spirit to dig deep an overcome adversity, however on the same token he could be putting his health in more danger by doing so.

    Would i like him to continue next season? by all means.

    1. Guardiola and Vilanova have different styles. By all accounts, Vilanova is less all-out and intense than Guardiola. We will see what the summer brings.
