The season-end marathon

The season-end marathon

Well folks, we’re finally here. The year began with Barcelona and Atlético Madrid tied on 38 points with Real Madrid ahead by a point and a game in hand. What seemed like a crisis then seems like a golden opportunity now. Barça lead the Primera division with 68 points, four points ahead of their eternal rivals, eight points ahead of third place Valencia, and nine points separating them from title holders Atlético Madrid. The boys have stopped the RojiBlancos, knocked them out of the Copa del Rey, destroyed the Premier League champions and clinched a victory against the European champions. But while everything seems nice and rosy, all of this would be for nothing if Barça doesn’t keep up the pace in their final tests.

It’s time for the business-end of the season marathon!

Clásico preview: A tale of two cities

Clásico preview: A tale of two cities

No names, but here’s a sample of what this here website’s readers had to say about Luis Enrique following the 1-0 defeat against Real Sociedad on January 4th – “This dude Get to go. Period”; “Lucho..,you fool”; “No strategy, No urgency, No direction”; “He is a clueless idiot with 0 tactical knowledge and he is arrogant on top of that”; “He is such a clueless coach”; “FRAUD”; “He has no desire to win matches.” That was the overwhelming consensus, with frequent accusations of incompetence and arrogance and one solemn vow to never watch Barça until Lucho was shoved out the exit door. Well, that pious soul has missed some sumptuous football since and the tune being sung by culé nation sounds significantly different. Would Barça win the clásico on Sunday, that tune will turn into a symphony of jubilation.

Lucho wary of Madrid threat

With FC Barcelona labelled as clear favorites for tomorrow’s clásico, Luis Enrique was quick to dismiss that notion although admitting that Camp Nou serves as an advantage.  “There are no clear favorites in games like these. These are two top quality teams with a lot at stake. But we do have home advantage and playing in front of our own fans always gives us that extra boost. We won’t fall into the trap of thinking it will be easy.”

Match Preview: SD Eibar vs. FC Barcelona

For a team that was in a crisis a couple of months back, being on top of the table in La Liga, in the Copa del Rey final, and on the verge of qualifying to the Champions League quarterfinals seems fairly magnificent now, no? When FC Barcelona take the pitch tomorrow to face SD Eibar, the stakes will be higher than ever. Ivan Rakitić summarized the situation in his press conference yesterday, saying that “beating Real Madrid won’t matter if we lose the games that follow.” From this moment on no game is more important than the other, just harder.

Back where they belong

Back where they belong

It’s been a while since we last saw FC Barcelona sitting atop the league table, and we’ve missed it greatly. What hurt most about the loss against Real Sociedad was not the fact that we again lost at the Anoeta, but rather that the team had wasted a rare chance to close the gap on then leaders Real Madrid. But ever since that loss, the response has been nothing but emphatic. And now, after two months of hard work, Barcelona are back where they belong – top of the league.

A match as entertaining as predictable

A match as entertaining as predictable

Barcelona host Rayo Vallecano at midday tomorrow, in a game that will be as entertaining as it is predictable. Paco Jeméz is near-universally admired for his uncompromising approach to football—he recently gave an interview in which he declared, “I became a coach to see my team play well…winning for the sake of winning doesn’t interest me.” While Rayo’s attacking approach is admirable —indeed, some have even suggested Jeméz as a candidate for future Barça manager—it rarely yields results against FC Barcelona. The blaugrana have won all seven games since Rayo returned to La Liga in 2011, with an aggregate score of 31-1!

The Lucho-Jémez bromance

Rayo Vallecano are one of the few sides that have the courage to attack and pressure FC Barcelona, and Luis Enrique is very fond of what his opponents, although limited financially, bring to the table. “Rayo are one of the teams with most personality in the league. They are one of the few teams who will be challenging for possession. We are really looking forward to this game.”

Rule #71: No excuses, play like a “champion”

Rule #71: No excuses, play like a “champion”

There’s no need to get complicated looking at this afternoon’s game in Andalusia. Granada are sitting one point from rock bottom, have lost to Barça in every occasion since 2011 bar last year’s 1-0 defeat in this same fixture, and will undoubtedly try to pull a Málaga. Luis Enrique knows it’s coming and he and his blaugrana players are implored to find a way past the bus. Victory will not be given, it must still be earned but the resource gap between FC Barcelona and Granada CF creates clear expectations.
