Barça B-Recreativo: Light at the end of the tunnel (0-1)

Barça B-Recreativo: Light at the end of the tunnel (0-1)

A new match means a new loss for FC Barcelona’s B team. These are not new airs for Eusebio’s squad who, after today’s match, only managed one victory along with five losses in the last six matches. Even at the home in the Mini Estadi and against a ten man Osasuna, the youngsters couldn’t find a way. Things continue to look bleak and desperate in Barça B´s fight to stay in Segunda A, whatever individual brilliance has helped them survive recently is now gone and collective play is a rarity. It is time (or has been for a while now) for big changes to happen. Read more…

Context and clean sheets: a look at Elche-Barcelona

Context and clean sheets: a look at Elche-Barcelona

As the final whistle blew on Barcelona’s 0-6 thrashing of Elche, several people noted that the scoreline was misleading out of context. Indeed, Elche attacked decently and defended well, while Barcelona were lackluster for 50 minutes and only broke the game open with goals off a set piece and a penalty. The goals only started to flow once Fayçal Fajr received his second yellow in the 57th minute, allowing Messi and Neymar to run rampant against 10 men. All of which is true, of course. But two things stand out to me in that line of thinking. First, if you were unable to enjoy the show of samba and smiles put on by Barça’s brilliant duo in the last half hour in Elche, you should stop reading this piece and go back to kicking puppies and pissing in flower beds. Second, and more seriously, is this tricky notion of context, the idea that some numbers are misleading and others aren’t, which I think bears more exploration.

Barça B – Osasuna: Round two, FIGHT!

Barça B – Osasuna: Round two, FIGHT!

FC Barcelona B got a breath of fresh air last week when they managed to snatch three points from visitors Recreativo Huelva in a 3-1 win. Both teams were standing in the relegation zone and desperately needed the win; fortunately it was the blaugrana who earned it. This surge of events came after a turbulent time with coach Eusebio going all out against his players in press conferences with the team being on a run of five consecutive losses. This week, Eusebio’s young men must seek to build upon last week’s victory with another win to get further away from the relegation zone and try to secure continuity in Liga Adelante as they face a tougher opponent in the Riojan men of Osasuna.

Happy Birthday, Suárez!

Happy Birthday, Suárez!

Luis Suárez is a man who is loved by some cúles, hated by others, and in between several love-hate relationships at the moment. But today, the Uruguayan gets a break from all the mixed emotions. So calm down, relax, and celebrate your 28th birthday while wearing the blaugrana shirt, and hopefully you’ll be the one bearing gifts with a goal or two against Elche CF.

Happy birthday, Suárez! Continue reading »
