barcelonitah:


Filled with flaws and yet feeling like perfection; this team is a dream come true. It’s never going to be about what the team won, lost, or tied. It’s not about the awards, trophies, or the way the jerseys look this season. It’s going to be how they fight, how they keep their modesty, and how they supply hope time after time. My support and adoration for every present and past (Luis Enrique included) player and coach is unwavering. When I’m old and senile, I’ll wake up the street with our beautiful himne, I’ll quote Pep Guardiola to my grandchildren, and I’ll never forget the good and the bad times. It’s these times that made me realize how much a human can truly love and keep on loving.

Sergio Ramos: Skills, Slides, Tackles - Real Madrid 2012HD

What can I say? I appreciate the simple things in life, like the duty of defenders. Great Sergio Ramos compilation, showcases some of the right-back’s finest moments for Los Merengues this season. Real Madrid seems to be chugging along quite nicely this season. Under Mourinho, they’re nestled nicely in Barcelona’s shadow, but are still top of La Liga.

Sergio Ramos is one of the best defenders in the world for both club & country. He’s got speed, skill, and the ability to play out of the back which makes highly rated throughout all of football. He’s still a young defender who could have another decade in him for Madrid.

This might be another compilation where mute is recommended. 

Real Madrid take on Malaga later today in the Copa Del Rey

Cesc Fabregas: All Goals for FC Barcelona 2011/2012

Cesc Fabregas has slipped into the squad at Barcelona like only a La Masia product could. While Barcelona fans at the start of the season had asked “Why do we need Cesc Fabregas?” They now ask, “Why not?” 

Fabregas great chemistry with the rest of the squad, especially with Lionel Messi. Their budding partnership formed almost instantly. There is a little bit of everything to Fabregas game, at times he looks like Xavi or Iniesta, but is more of an attacking option than both.

The goals Cesc has scored for the blaugrana have featured far more flare than was seen from him in England, although there is less pressure to score than there was at Arsenal, and far more ways to have fun. It must be nice winning knowing your club can score 4 or more goals in every match whether you’re on the pitch or not.

Let’s face it: Fabregas is living the dream, playing professional football surrounded by his childhood friends, and family. Let’s just watch, learn, and be proud we have been able to see him in his prime, enjoying the game and being grateful for so much. It’s nice to see peoples dreams come true, and it’s hard to be sour about the recent rise of Barcelona because of all they have been through. Not to mention, there is hardly any news of any of the Barca squad putting a boot out of line off the pitch, unless you count shamelessly making out with Shakira.

Cesc Fabregas tacked on two more goals to his tally to 13 on the season.

Not bad for the new boy

UPDATE: ALEXIS SANCHEZ SIGNS FOR BARCELONA

DEAL IS DONE, BARCA SIGN SANCHEZ for £32 million. Udinese profit £30.3m for player. Sanchez signed for Udinese for £1.7m in 2006.

After making a splash at the 2010 World Cup with the Chilean national team, the 22 year old has continued his stellar form with club Udinese and has proven to be a top transfer target for many of the World’s top clubs this summer including Barcelona, Inter Milan, and newcomers Man City whose pockets are bulging with cash from their rich Arab based owners Abu Dhabi Group. Sanchez shows touch, skill, pace, poise on the ball, the vision to pass and the strike to score a goal at such a young age. In today’s football, this is the most valuable kind of player around.

Sanchez is a player that shows up for both club and country, which proves he doesn’t let different circumstances affect his style of play. The trend of South American ‘bull’ type players continues with Sanchez, alongside the likes of Tevez, Aguero, Messi, and even Liverpool’s Luis Suarez who play blast, and bulldoze through opponents defense. Along with Tevez, Aguero, and Messi - Sanchez is the type of player that causes defenders to make mistakes, he’s got fast footwork and an incredible mind, forcing those who play against him to have the utmost concentration or simply catch his dust.

Sanchez is an example of the power of YouTube in creating influence & buzz regarding real time transfers in today’s world. His talent would be the same, but there is no doubt that Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez wouldn’t be front page news without the army of fans searching him on YouTube, Tumblr, Twitter and other online platforms, scouting a potential recruit to their team; and the scores of amateur highlight film aficionados feeding the frenzy. I’m sure his Agent and PR team really don’t mind.

FC BARCELONA SIGN SANCHEZ
