PASSION AND GOOD SENSE

Camp Nou must teach Mourinho and Madrid a [behaviour] lesson

Why?

1 – Because Pep’s Barça plays for the qualification for the Champions final

2 – Because the good football played by the blaugranas must prevail over the manipulation

3 – Because the best revenge is to destroy Madrid

4 – Because indifference is the best answer to Mourinho’s words.

Madrid declares war [on Barça]: They want 6 Barça players to be punished!

Quote of the day: Guus Hiddink

Quote of the day: Guus Hiddink

‘At one point in the match the entire Barca team just stood still in their own half, because 11 Madrid players were just defending in their own half. They did not want to play football. It was obvious this was Mourinho’s choice to play the game like this. Tough. Barcelona did not fall for the trap.’

- Guus Hiddink, Turkey’s National Coach

expressed his views on the first leg of the CL Semifinals.

Video of the Day: Gracies Equip!

To the Team, thank you! That is the video prepared by FC Barcelona as a way of motivating the fans and to show its appreciation to the players ahead of Tuesday’s crucial UCL semi-finals return leg.

It portrays clips taken from the first three Clasicos – the ups and downs felt by the players in the 0-2 win of the UCL first leg and the Copa del Rey defeat, the hard tackles coming from the Real Madrid players, and how they kept on fighting – with the last part of the short video talking about “the final 90 minutes when they will give their all so the fans can continue to dream.”

Post-Match Review: Real Sociedad 2-1 FC Barcelona

Barca Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Glory

Barcelona and Real Madrid had to return to their day jobs again this weekend after the midweek battle at the Bernabeu. Madrid’s shock home defeat to Zaragoza gave even more breathing room to Pep Guardiola who had the luxury of starting only four of his first team tonight, thereby gifting starting berths to cameo starlets such as Fontas, Montoya, Thiago and Jeffren. Pinto minded the goal in place of Valdes and Milito was given a rare opportunity to shine.
