A Quiet Victory

Found a nice short post about the Champions League outcome.




HELLO 2012! (post via offsidehumor.tumblr.com)

Well it’s a new year and it has been officially named 2012! You know what that means–more matches, rivalries, idiotic decisions, and yup you guessed it–the dreaded winter transfer rumors/window.  To spare you from reading more transfer rumors, like Fernando Torres moving to Barca (as if 2012 really is the year when the world ends…) or Barca making a bid for Fernando Torres…as if 2012 is the year when the world loses their minds, we’d like to present you New Years Resolutions!

Famous football New Years Resolution:

1.)Carlos Tevez- to stay at Man City and continue leeching off their money, or move to another team to leech off their money

2.)Zlatan Ibrohimovic- wants to make his book “I am Zlatan” as an official holy scripture

3.) Cristiano Ronaldo- learn how to spontaneously combust a specific unnamed player so he can finally be the best in the world  (a pretty messi tactic but what can you do…)

4.)David Silva- wants to get a couple of centimeters shorter to finally fit into the “false 9” role in the Spanish NT

5.)Gareth Bale- learn Spanish for his “imminent move” to Barcelona

6.)Alexis Sanchez- wants to become a stand-up comedian so his team can understand his jokes better

7.)Xavi Hernandez-wants to move his head like an owl to truly have 360 degree view of the pitch

8.)Mario Balotelli- promises Mancini he will take Xanax (*fingers crossed*) to keep MCFC’s PR team form quitting

9.)van Persie- to convince himself that loyalty to a team is more important than titles

10.)Lionel Messi- to keep playing football in hopes for more lollipops from Pep

If you *hear* more, please share =)

FC Barcelona: Post International Break

Are you guys ready for the match against Real Zaragoza?! We did some undercover scouting in the Camp Nou.  We’re happy to report that we found our players focused and in tip-top shape (FIFA virus free and everything *knock on wood*).  From these photos we took, it seems like they’re ready and rearing to go for today’s Zaragoza match and the upcoming Champions League on Wednesday against AC Milan.

Messi: "Is stretching a type of rest"

Puyol:"So I do yoga, and Pep does ti-chi...I need to tweet this to Pique.."


"Yeahh...from the looks of it, Pep won't be too happy with Pedro"

Pique:"Jaja so Puyi just tweeted me..."

Mascherano:"and then, AND THEN he made you take our picture!"

Keita: "The ONE thing I can do better than Messi..."

Villa:"Hehe, chance to be offsides"

Well there you have it! Another accomplished training session with Barca. Let’s just hope they’re this motivated come match day!
