If you are an installer of shelving in the Barcelona area, you’re not worried about the fact that the Euro is collapsing or the Spain’s economy is crumbling because every single person who gets off the plane from Japan, and one who’s laid up in bed, will need new shelves put in for their new silverware.
Pique Dreams of New Trophy Cabinets
Seriously, where on earth do they put all this stuff!
Iniesta and Cesc Celebrate Club World Cup
Not sure if they meant to do this, but Iniesta has two fingers up showing us that this his second Club World Cup as he won it with more or less the same Barca team in 2009. Cesc is pleased to remind us that this his first World Cup victory on the club side. Also, I love his hair this picture.
Any who, FC Barcelona took Brazilian team Santos FC, complete with Neymar, to town beating them 4-0 in the final. Messi opened and closed the scoring on 16 and 82 minutes respectively with Xavi pitching in on the 23rd and Cesc making his presence known on the 44th.
Happy as we are for the boys of blaugrana who were on the pitch and a manager who has now won ah, I think this makes 19 titles but don’t quote it is so easy to lose track with these boys, I’m even more happy that Villa will be able to complete his collection of winning, well everything.
Quote from Villa’s web page before the start of the Club World Cup:
The FIFA Club World Cup is a very special championship for Villa, because it is the only trophy he hasn’t got yet, so till now he has achieved the Liga, Champions League, Spanish King`s Cup, Spanish and European Supercup, UEFA Euro, and the World Cup.
(Not that he’s the only one on the Barca team that can say they’ve won everything now mind you)
But this is despite his only being able to play for 37 minutes of the competition when he broke his left tibia during Barca’s 4-0 rout of Al-Sadd in the semifinal.
Villa Carried off the Pitch
El Guaje, Spain’s leading goal scorer, will have surgery tomorrow on his leg and will then undergo a long recuperation process, 4-6 months depending on who you ask. The man himself will think of Munchen in spring time to get back up to snuff for the Champions League Final in Allianz Arena in May.
Villa on Facebook:
Hola a tod@s! Gracias por vuestros ánimos!!! Esta lesión es un golpe duro, pero estoy convencido de que me voy a recuperar lo antes posible, pensando en jugar la final de Munich (sé que mis compañeros me llevarán a ella) y la Eurocopa. Voy a trabajar duro para ello. Que cuenten conmigo!!! Mañana ya estaré en España. Un abrazo!
I guess this means his Barca teammates better make sure to get there!
Mucha Furerza Gauje! (to steal the words printed on the Barca player’s shirt worn at the final)
I wish you the speediest of speedy recoveries. We all want you back to goal poaching glory by the Euros, well maybe not the Germans or the Dutch, or the Italians…you know what I mean.
In the mean time, I’ll close with this; the words of Xavi Hernandez on Facebook today “Somos campeones del mundo ..!” For me what goes after those three little dots is the word “again” but I don’t think anyone will ever get tired of saying it.
Play it again boys!
