Tito

I'm sitting in a cab, best friend at my side, on our way to a friend's surprise bachelorette party. My phone pings with a twitter notification and I swipe it. Read the tweet. My heart gives a physical jolt, my hand presses onto it and I can't breathe. "Oh my God." My friend asks what's the matter.

Viva La Vida (or the story of the faraway land of Barca under the reign of RoSell)

One grey-haired Zubiza wipes a tear with the tip of his glove – quite lovely gloves too – and mutters, "If dear Cruyff were only here." The pair of beady eyes at his side turn on him sharply. "What's that Zubiza?"

"Nothing sir, I said if my dead wife were only –"

"Quit moping Zubiza, we've got my personal agenda to attend to.

In Appreciation of David Villa

You're probably going not going to like much of what I'm going say in this piece, but here is my take on things.
To put it plainly, Barca have been callous to Villa since before they signed him. I'm not trying to pick on the club in order to defend the player, and Barca is after all my club that I love and have loved through thick and thin.

Poster Series: Riscone 2012

Barcelista at related • 0 views
These are three of what was supposed to be a five-poster series on Roma's training camp in Riscone di Brunico, a place in the mountains where the team traditionally holds a training camp every summer. Ideally it should have gone up before the team left Riscone but I didn't want to post it before it was complete, and since I never did get around to the last two posters it just never got posted.

On the Barca/Shalit Mess

A quick word on the whole mess about Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit attending the Clasico at Camp Nou. First of all, I would like to clarify that I would not defend Barca, just because they are my club, against something I believe to be wrong, and know that I was quick to sign the petition organized by BDS Catalunya against Barca hosting Shalit at the Camp Nou for the Clasico and also disseminate the petition on twitter.

Who Wants To Win The Franco League?

Many times I've consideredwriting a piece on this and then discarded the idea, deciding it better not toget into something so controversial. But now it's gone beyond the point where Ican take it. I don't even have the time to be writing this but I am so infuriatedright now that I have to do this, to vent everything.

On Thuggery Versus Heart

Barcelista at related • 0 views
This must be the millionth time I've said this, but I can't say it enough, because this team keeps on giving me reason to. I am so fucking proud of them. I love them so fucking much. This team is just something else. Such pride, such heart, it's unmatchable. After the last Clasico, where we beat them 3-1, I was talking to a fellow Culita about how Barca play these games and win them with their hearts.

Soriano Promoted?

Barcelista at related • 0 views
Ever since Pep said this: "Because of the injury of Villa we're thinking about promoting Soriano. Problem is he then can't go back to the B-team" in his press conference today, I've been getting q lot of questions about Soriano and his possible promotion. I'm going to address hopefully everything here, adapted from the transfer piece I wrote last summer.

Zlatan's Back...

... and whinier than ever.

So, Ibrahimovic wrote a book in which he cries about how mean Mr. Pep bullied his existence and shattered his dreams. Because, you know, we can't expect him to be over it over a year later. Well I'm here to pick his whining apart quote by quote... starting from where he begins by pointing fingers at Messi (oh, this is going to be fun):

"Playing at Barca was a childhood dream and I was walking on air.

Cesc Fabregas, That's Who

Barcelista at related • 0 views

Every time Thiago scores, Barca fans start to crow "Cesc who, Cesc who!" I don't quite see the relevance, because it's news to me that we're interested in Cesc as a goal scorer.

Thiago is a phenomenal player and he's been having an incredible preseason, relentlessly netting goal after breathtaking goal, and to have a midfielder dominating the team's scoring is something relatively new to Barca.

Summer Transfer Thoughts

I thought this was needed, after the endless debates over twitter and repeating the same stuff over and over. This will mostly collect and expand on transfer-related things I have already tweeted; but of course not everyone will have seen it all twitter and this way it's easier. It turned out quite long, but it's very relevant and I hope you'll all read and enjoy.
