    I’m really surprised the tv channel wrote the “despacito, despacito les rompimos el cul*to”!!!

    Hectored in last post, but on phone so cant copy submitted comments anyway + more related to subject of previous thread than to celebration, so wont repost it here again.

    Also I still think Barca got the short end of the stick celebrations-wise compared to what Shakhtar are getting.. πŸ™

    barcastuff:

    Barcelona withdraw the appeal in the Pinto case and accept the 3-game ban. This means he won’t take part in the CL final. #fcblive [md]

    Good. I’m glad. It’s a shame Pinto will miss the final, but the punishment is fair IMO.

    You guys post this yet?

    If you’d have stuck Pep Guardiola in front of a time-lapse camera over the past three years then the alarming ageing process the BarΓ§a boss has suffered would resemble the shriveling and shrinking of a recently staked vampire.

    Guardiola’s short black hair has retreated to the top of his skull and turned grey. The former fresh-faced, zest-filled manager now appears gaunt and exhausted. The air of a footballing Freddie Mercury with a very different kind of firm tackle has been replaced by a permanently fretting, frowning figure who suffers bouts of chronic back pain – a harsh reminder of the manager’s days as a player.

    Avles and Valdes just referenced the Chut del bol video!!!!

      May 13, 2011

      What did they say? I can’t play the sound because I’m at work.

    • May 13, 2011

      Alves was speaking English and I couldn’t tell what he was saying and then Alves said “and you choot the ball to me” referencing Valdes’ part. Valdes was beside him laughing.

      This was said to the camera as they were getting on the bus. I hope someone recorded it!

    • Jnice
      May 13, 2011

      Hahaha they did. Alves just said “pass the ball to me” or something like that. I didn’t really hear what Valdes said, but he was laughing.

      Yeah, maybe someone from rojadirecta will have it. Or the dude at masiablaugrana.com

    Waka waka playing πŸ˜€

    And Masch, Bojan, Messi and Afellay are all sitting in the back. Messi is already drinking something πŸ˜›

    I haven’t spotted Iniesta yet.

    • May 13, 2011

      He’s donned in full Barca wear, and probably texting Valeria πŸ˜†

    I hope the xavi girl is watching

  13. May 13, 2011

    Pique is such a party animal. πŸ˜€

    I can imagine him performing “(s)he’s a maniac” with the sitting on the chair and the water and everything.

    • blitzen
      May 13, 2011

      Xavi is pretty low-key, though. Been there, done that. 8)

      May 13, 2011

      does that mean you read it and thought “mwehhh there’s not much to it” or do you simply not believe the author?

      The thought of Messi letting the fame and accolades get to him at one point or another is not so far-fetched, is it?

    • May 13, 2011

      First one (I think it’s BS. Being introverted =/= being arrogant). I don’t wanna rain on the parade of this post. If it seems like I’m dismissing your comment, I’m not. I’ll just hold up on commenting on until later.

    • Lev
      May 13, 2011

      cool thnx for your reply. i didn’t mean to interrupt the parade it’s just that I’m at work and can’t watch it πŸ™

      visca barça!!!!

  14. May 13, 2011

    Hey that band that has Juanjo Brau’s son on it, Suite and the one Messi and Puyol have advertised are performing now.

  15. May 13, 2011

    Villa is so cute. This is a first for him and he’s recording it on his phone.

    Came back long enough to say Yay, us!.

    Is there anything more endearing than seeing our guys this goofy for their club?

    Is there gonna be anyone who won’t be hung over too badly to play this weekend?

    Is there anything more annoying than TV3 cutting to a Ramos interview in the middle of this?

    • soccermomof4
      May 13, 2011

      oops- inexperienced bold command user says sorry πŸ™

  19. May 13, 2011

    At the very least, Pinto, Geri and Alves are drunk. πŸ˜‰

      I’m just waiting for Pique to fall off the bus.

    Awwww Jeffren. Kind of bittersweet for him I guess, considering he only played for about 5 minutes all season.

    May 13, 2011

    Geez, Pep, you could smile a little!

  23. May 13, 2011

    Heh, Pep’s just in a corner taking it in. At least Tito’s letting loose!

    Mosh pit! πŸ˜†

  25. May 13, 2011

    Goodness, someone’s gonna get pushed off that bus. All that jumping and shoving. πŸ˜†

  26. May 13, 2011

    I swear me and blitzen are two different people! πŸ˜†

  27. May 13, 2011

    Messi’s relaxing now at the back of the bus. Villa has the silly hat now.

  28. Helge

    btw, anybody knows why there are two peppers on the back of the “Campions” shirts?

    • pilar
      May 13, 2011

      Hi. Catalan speaker stepping in for this one πŸ™‚
      Peppers (“pebrots” in catalan) means balls (in the male anatomic sense of the word). So, two peppers means…. well, you can guess πŸ˜‰

  29. soccermomof4
    May 13, 2011

    They are all completely $h*tfaced πŸ˜† These should be some funny comments they make at the stadium if they can still stand up by then. I hope there’s a potty on the bus at the rate they’re drinkin’.

  30. just listenin
    May 13, 2011

    We should give player ratings on drunkenness…
    I’ll start by bracketing;
    Pique 10
    Iniesta 1 (Good example for Valeria)

    I hope the recover by the weekend, it’s hard enough when you’re playing against 10 behind the ball let alone 20 from double vision

    • Helge
      May 13, 2011

      The match is in 48 hours, they surely will be sober by then πŸ™‚

    • just listenin
      May 13, 2011

      One can only hope, provided the party ends promptly. It took them a while to come out, one can only assume cold showers and coffee before microphones.

    • May 13, 2011

      Messi: 10 (he likes his Estrella Damm it seems πŸ˜€ )
      Pinto: 10
      Alves: N/A (hard to tell if he’s drunk on alcohol, on Red Bull or Dani just being Dani)


      Puyi: 2 (alcohol can’t handle him)
      Xavi: 2 (doesn’t seem the type to over-drink)
      Bojan: 1 (too young to drink… XD)

    • soccermomof4
      May 13, 2011

      We can also assume that Keita and The King are not drinking because their faith forbids it. So they don’t get a rating; they get gold stars for good behavior.

      Also ewwww beer, Secondly, double-ewwwww canned beer. Somebody make those men a manita!

    • May 13, 2011

      Afellay as well.

      I’m under the impression those red cans are some kind of juice/soda. I may be naive in that sense, but I saw Messi with what looked like a clear glass of…something dark brown-ish (I assume that is the Estrella Damm stuff, but I dunno. Me no drink).

    • Jnice
      May 13, 2011

      The cans are Estrella Damm as well.

    • blitzen
      May 13, 2011

      Puyol 1 (captain has to make a speech)

  31. May 13, 2011

    They are replaying la manita in the Camp Nou. “Madrid, cabron, saluda el campeon” ring out in unison.

    I SAW PEP CRACK A SMILE. And then it went back to his neutral face. BUT I SAW IT. 8)

    • blitzen

      He looked like he was actually avoiding the camera there!

    Is it just me, or is one of the windsock guys black? πŸ˜† That’s so….appropriate! Has it always been like that?

    • May 13, 2011

      Holy moly I was justabout to mention that!

      I don’t think it’s always been like that. Heheheh 8)

    • just listenin
      May 13, 2011

      It appears that the windsock guy on the far right was drinking too, he kept kind of wavering and all most tumbling over.

    Xaviiiiii!!!! When’s Xavi getting off the bus?????

  35. May 13, 2011

    Ahaha! XAVI AND PUYI ARE RUNNING AROUND THE STADIUM WITH THE SENYERA!

  36. May 13, 2011

    Why was that all in caps? Ah well. Xavi and his arm waving/flapping πŸ˜†

    Can give you a rough translation if you want. Speech about the long hard road, but with a happy ending. See you in Wembley and blah, blah, blah. Then then motto of the t-shirt: the value of having values
