Match Preview: FC Barcelona vs Levante UD

Here we come, fresh from the beginning in the year 2011 with all the good times of 2010 still lingering in our memories. It is just like this time last year, when Barcelona seemed to be on top of the world, yet Barcelona ended the season with only the La Liga trophy. While the team is indeed relaxed and refreshed with the week off, they need to get back on shape and they need to do it really quick if they want to achieve their potential and improve from their performance last season.

2011-12 Home Jersey Leaked?

Yet another image surfaced recently that may be the shirt our Barca boys are wearing next season. This new design features nine red stripes on a blue background. The sleeves are a solid blue and the collar is red. In a new twist, the stripes appear to change width depending on their location on the shirt. On the wearer’s upper right, the red stripes start out thicker and get progressively thinner. The blue stripes work in the opposite fashion, starting at the widest on the lower left.

This image appears to be a prototype as it still features the UNICEF logo on the front. However, a more updated version appears on the cover of El Mundo Deportivo. More news to follow as we get it.
