Quote of the day: Yael Averbuch in NY Times’ Goal

“I used to love the tricky, flashy players, but those whom I’ve come to appreciate more and more (maybe, in part, because it reminds me of my own style) are the simple, consistent playmakers. To me, Xavi and Iniesta are brilliant. They are the maestros leading the show, and they do so with few touches and extremely simple decisions and techniques.”

Ramzi’s Rambles – Sandro Rosell: Mission Possible

Ramzi’s Rambles – Sandro Rosell: Mission Possible

Sandro Rosell has a huge mission to fulfill if he wants to overshadow Laporta’s achievements. It’s important to point out first; I am not his most dedicated fan. Yet, I think he may suffer some unfairness while evaluating his presidential period six years from now. Laporta’s era was flooded by titles. You can only hope that Sandro Rosell’s era will break that record, but at the end of the day there are no certainties in football. Sandro Rosell may do better work in the sporting department without earning back enough titles to crown his effort. That’s why, as long as he lives in peace with the coach, leaves the transfers decisions to be discussed between Pep and Zubi, and makes sure to engineer a sufficient transfer budget – he said there will be 50 M every year, which is much more than enough – if he ticks all the mentioned boxes, then there should be no complaints in that matter.
