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.

One eye on La Liga, one on La Copa

One eye on La Liga, one on La Copa

FC Barcelona travel to Alicante Saturday for the season’s fourth encounter with Elche CF. The Catalans have dominated heavily in the previous three matches across La Liga and the Copa del Rey, but will undoubtedly have Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid in the backs of their minds. Luis Enrique’s men need a victory to keep pace with Real, who sit in the top spot with a one-point advantage. But one eye must be kept on midweek, when a decisive clash at the Vicente Calderón will see either Atléti or Barça crashing out of the Copa del Rey.Click for more

Calma Luis, calma

Calma Luis, calma

Tug away, pull with all your might, try by force and you’ll never be free. The harder you try, the tighter the bamboo grips – on this simple principle the age old Chinese handcuffs have imprisoned many an index finger. As soon as the prisoner relaxes, so does the snare and voilà, freedom. We human beings so often get in our own way. We want something so badly that our attempts become desperate, frantic and ultimately counterproductive. Whether it’s Dee gripping the rat trap (for any of my Always Sunny brethren out there) or Luis Suárez in blaugrana, often when one stops trying so hard nature takes its course.

Intensity makes everything easier

Luis Enrique spoke to the press ahead of the clash against Elche and stressed that the team should not underestimate the danger Elche poses and made it clear that the league is still wide open The league is full of surprises, there is no such thing as an easy game. We’ve prepared with that in mind. Without intensity, anyone can make your life difficult. It will be difficult for sure. There will be little space and they’ll try to counter. That happens in every game.” The boss was full of praise for Luis Suárez, who is yet to reach his peak with the Catalan club, saying, “It seems that he’s a bit far away from the goal, but that happens to all forwards. He still provides a lot on offense.” He added, “There are few players who move into the area better than Suárez. I’m not worried. Scoring is natural, he’ll get there.

Tie yet to be settled

In his post-match declarations, FC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique made it clear he believes the Copa del Rey tie between his side and Atlético Madrid is far from being settled. “This was a very positive result, but I never settle for future results. Atlético still have a lot to say. It looks like it’ll be an attractive game because we’re up against a team that will also be out for a win.

Regarding the 1-0 win at Camp Nou, the Asturian commented that “it means we can feel optimistic about the second leg. But we have to go out to win at the Vicente Calderón. Defensively, they’re one of the best teams in the world,” he highlighted. “We expected them to make things difficult for our attacker. We knew that to hurt Atlético we would need to be compact in both phases of the match.

Piqué and Barça keep Atlético on short leash

Piqué and Barça keep Atlético on short leash

Today was the day that could have landed FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique once again into the hot seat after a lackluster performance replete with confusing tactics and ineffectual individual performances. But as all good narratives and soldiers of perseverance go, a very positive result came from a scrappy and entertaining fight. Some tactics worked well, while others less so. Some players were absolutely, nostalgically brilliant, and yet one in particular continues to baffle and frustrate. But culés can take at least some solace in a one-goal advantage ahead of next week’s return leg at the Vicente Calderón in Madrid.

Atlético Madrid entered the match with a fierce desire to play their own style, and prevent Barcelona from occupying the middle of the park, where Koke and Arda Turan are at their most dangerous. Los Colchoneros had the near impossible task however, of coming out of this match with all four players on yellow cards able to participate in the home leg. They were mere minutes from succeeding until Diego Godín earned a yellow for protesting in the 85th minute. Antoine Griezmann, Mario Mandžukić and Raúl García all escaped suspension from the second leg.Click for more
