Happy 116th Birthday Barça!
Barcelona is 116 years old today, and there is no reason why culés shouldn’t feel proud, with the club finding itself in one of the best moments in its history. On the 29th of November 1899, Joan Gamper and a group of 11 other young people met at the Gimnasio Solé in Barcelona and laid the cornerstone of what would become one of the greatest clubs in the world.
Barcelona leaves Madrid 9 points adrift after a new festival of goals
Luis Enrique: “Until all three of the trident score, the party is not complete.”
THE 3 AMIGOS (4-0)
Neymar (2) and Suarez scored and then they looked for Messi to join the goal fest
New exhibition of power and play by Barcelona, who have scored 14 goals in the last three games
THOSE WHO MAKE US HORNY 4 THOSE OF EUSEBIO 0
“They have put four past us, like Madrid. But, at least, they did not ridicule us.”
For the third time in eight days, FC Barcelona fans were once again reminded just how lucky they are to be witnessing this generation of football. Luis Enrique’s side has scored 14(!) goals in three games, and 11 of those were scored by what is unarguably the best attacking trident in the world. Tonight, Real Sociedad fell victim to a red hot Barcelona and the gap between el blaugrana and Real Madrid has, for now, increased to nine points until the latter faces SD Eibar tomorrow.
Eusebio Sacristán, the ex-Barça B coach, returned today to Barcelona in charge of Sociedad following the departure of David Moyes. His return, however, wasn’t nearly as joyful as he had hoped it would be. Following in the footsteps of Madrid and AS Roma, Sociedad opted to play with a high-line and pressure Barcelona to keep them in their half and away from goal as possible. And to no one’s surprise, giving such space to the MSN trident proved suicidal.
Luis Enrique talks before the Real Sociedad match
Luis Enrique gave a press conference ahead of the match at the Camp Nou against Real Sociedad. Lucho started off by praising Leo Messi, saying that, “He looked good to me, as they all did. He isn’t 100%, he still needs to get match fit. He doesn’t have to be at the top of his game to make a difference. He needs playing time right now in order to get back to his very best.”
How often is it that a team comes into a game with absolutely no concerns whatsoever? Arguably, every manager in world football would kill to be in Luis Enrique’s shoes right now, perhaps even more so than the moment he secured the club’s second treble. That in itself speaks more than anything I could say about the level of Barça‘s recent performances.
