Neither history nor present should concern Barça

Neither history nor present should concern Barça

The Parisians must wait – today nobody should look beyond el derbì. First of all, it feels FC Barcelona are obligated to keep pace with a runaway Real Madrid freight train. Secondly, whilst Espanyol may be far from the top, los periquitos always save their best for Barça. Still, this is a game Luis Enrique and co are expected to win and anything short of the three points will bring harsh comparisons to Carlo Ancelotti’s gang and a micro-crisis before a semi-clutch match on Wednesday against Paris Saint-Germaine (PSG).

Girona-Barça B: Reserves taking a crack at the leaders

Girona-Barça B: Reserves taking a crack at the leaders

Barcelona B’s last few matches haven’t exactly been the best example of what this team can really do. In fact, Eusebio’s team hasn’t won in the Liga Adelante since October 19th, almost 2 months ago. It has all been a matter of near misses and cheap goals conceded, but it is the league standings that always tell the truth, and on them Barça B is 15th and sliding, with 17 points out of a possible 45. Trying to get back to winning ways has proven to be complicated for the youngest Barça B side ever, and this weekend’s trip to neighbours and league leaders Girona makes things no easier. Read more…

Good things come in threes: How Luis Enrique can strike balance at Barcelona

Good things come in threes: How Luis Enrique can strike balance at Barcelona

They say good things come in threes. “They” being superstitious people, but also culés and Cruyffistas. After all, threes are the basis of the Barcelona style: the midfield trio, the front three, and the all-important triangles formed all over the pitch. With that in mind, I want to look at Barcelona’s first three games after the international break, what could potentially turn out to be the season’s turning point. Under pressure after dreadful performances against Real Madrid, Celta Vigo, and Almería, Luis Enrique managed three important wins against Sevilla, APOEL, and Valencia. As always, there were caveats with each match. Sevilla were surprisingly poor, APOEL were minnows, and the most recent match against Valencia was muddled, confusing and ugly. However, three points from Mestalla is no mean feat – it is, after all, something Pep Guardiola accomplished only once in five trips there – and the victories over Sevilla and APOEL were as stylish as they were crucial to their respective campaigns. Most importantly, Luis Enrique played three different systems in the three games – although the success of these systems was mixed, the contrast with the rigidity and confusion of October is clear. Luis Enrique’s team is still coming together, but there is a logic to his choices now, a hint that he is developing tools for the long haul.

Right-back where we started

Right-back where we started

Seems just like yesterday we were pleading, praying, and shouting for a serious solution – any solution – to FC Barcelona’s defensive malnourishment. With an ailing and literally stapled Carles Puyol just months from retirement, and a shunned and discarded Éric Abidal no longer at the club, sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta finally pulled himself up by the gator straps after a veritable prodding from the media, and somehow completed a set of signings that appeared to have addressed all of the questions surrounding depth and positional frailty–not just defensively, but all over the pitch. Each addition seemed quite effective and logical, except for that last odd signing of Douglas Pereira dos Santos from São Paulo FC.Click for more
