I can’t even find the words to express the joy that I feel. This brief post is mostly for the permanent record, so that we can all come back here and remember the joy that we felt when it was announced today that:
–Eric Abidal was training normally with the squad
–Eric Abidal convocado. Dude’s in the squad for the Camp Nou leg in the final edition of a nasty, bitter series of El Clasics.
For the cave-dwellers, Abidal had surgery recently, to remove a tumor on his liver. We never heard if it was malignant or not, but we can safely assume by the fact that His Royal Badness is back, that it wasn’t. Guardiola says that he can help some, but that he isn’t fully match fit and is a little overweight.
Who cares? Our French Greyhound is BACK!!!!
