Match Review: Athletic Bilbao vs. Barcelona (Paco and Aleix!)

A match between Barcelona and the opposition from the north is always sure to be a good one.

The defense included Aleix Vidal, Gerard Piqué, Samuel Umtiti and Jeremy Mathieu. With Marc-André ter Stegen in goal, the match was off.

New Year, New problems, New hope?

The wonderful thing about the beginning of a New Year is that it offers one a very real chance to reflect on past events and work towards improving oneself, both in character and behaviour. In fact, the start of a new year has proved to be so synonymous with self-reflection and betterment that the first question on everyone’s lips post the customary midnight firework display is always one and the same: “What are your resolutions for this year?”. In other words, through what means  are you aiming to advance yourself in terms of both characteristics and personality.

Match Review: FC Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao

And so 2017 has begun. What was meant to be a promising start to the season has now become a rather interesting start to the season.

Not only is he a magician on the field, but he also has the ability to be the ultimate decider of games- more so than any player in other player in the world.

Review: Two points lost or one point gained?

Let’s make one thing clear from the get-go: Yes, dropping two points when we had the chance to gain ground on Real Madrid is a disappointment, without a shadow of a doubt. A quick look at the way Atletico scored makes you want to pull out your hair even more; a completely avoidable goal that was the result of a momentary lapse in concentration from two players (Pique and Mascherano) who were absolute beasts otherwise.
