Hodgson: “Barca’s offer for Mascherano isn’t enough”

Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has acknowledged that Barcelona have made an offer for Argentinean captain and midfielder Javier Mascherano (26). Hodgson, however, also made it clear that the money offered by the Catalan side for his prized player is below the English club’s expectations. “The fee that the club thinks is the correct fee and one that has been offered are very far apart and unless that can be resolved he [Mascherano] might be unhappy for a long time,” he said.

A journey of a flag

A journey of a flag

To Humanity.

Paulo Martin, Esto es Para Ti

This is a special story about love, compassion and respect. Written by a Madridista for a Madridista, it demonstrates how boundaries collapse when you stand up for a cause.  A totalBarca tribute to humanity affirming our ever lasting support towards the noble goals that made FC Barcelona Més que un club.

When Andres Iniesta got the ball in the six yard box and fired it home with unerring ability for an extra time winner, it was difficult to judge exactly how I felt then. Fuzzed as I was with all those spirits coursing thruugh my veins, nothing had prepared me for Iniesta’s celebration following the goal. While a Higuain may have punched the air or an Ibrahimovich may have shown off supreme attitude, Iniesta removed his jersey and it wasn’t to display his six packs. On a white sleeveless muscle tee were sketched these words: “Dani Jarque, Siempre Con Nosotros”, in memory of fellow friend and embittered rival club Espanyol’s player, Dani Jarque who had died in tragic circumstances the previous year leaving behind a girlfriend with a kid on the way.

Quote of the Day: Pep Guardiola, coach FC Barcelona

“This trophy goes especially to those that did not play today. There are always players left out that deserve to play.”

“We want to have few players and try to give them all games. With the ones we have, more than a hypothetical new signing, we have players from the youth ranks who we can step up.”

FC Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola at the post-match press conference after the winning Super Cup against Sevilla.

Chants: 1899 neix el club que porto al cor

Chants: 1899 neix el club que porto al cor

This week we bring you again a very popular chant both in Camp Nou and in celebrations. Even Piqué livened up the treble celebration in Camp Nou telling the crowd to chant it. The best known part is the ending, so many people only know how to chant this part (the easiest part). Do you know when our club was born? If you didn’t, you’ll know it by heart from now on.
