As requested by asdfg I just wanted to let you know that this is inspired by two different articles. The post title came from a Twitter hashtag created by SPORT, the reasons came from an article they published. I translated/adapted them a little and added my own comments under each one of them. You can find the link to the original articles at the bottom of this page.
1. Thirteen titles speak of a unique project:
Pep as coach has already won more titles than Johan Cruyff did.
No other team in the world has ever won the sextuple.
2. The challenge of the seven points:
Three times Barça has been behind the 1st of the table with a massive difference in points.
All three of them, Barça won the league that season (1992, 1994 and 1999).
3. Pep Guardiola, the great leader:
No one knows how to handle defeat better than Pep.
He knows that losing is the best fuel to make you win.
4. Pep vs Mou stats:
Ten times they’ve played against each other.
Pep’s only lost once.
5. Mou’s arrogance, the best stimulus for Barça:
Barça players give their best when Mou taunts them.
That fact frightens both Mou as well as Madrid’s players.
6. Camp Nou, the unbeatable fort:
Barça has never lost in Camp Nou whenever the second leg of a match was played there.
Only one team has managed to score in Camp Nou in the current league.
7. Compromise and Quality:
The team has the quality.
They never compromise their fairplay, whatever the weather.
8. Messi, the best player in the world:
The very few people who speak against him say he’s never won a World Cup with Argentina.
They should remember that neither has Cristiano Ronaldo with Portugal.
9. The injured will get better and Keite will be back:
In spite of multiple injuries, our team is still able to keep up its excellency, even our baby-cracks from Barça B.
Imagine what they’ll do when Villa, Afellay, Fontàs and the rest injured players will be in top form.
10. The Dream Team, the next big target:
The side led by Cruyff (with Pep as player) managed to win four consecutive league titles.
Can you imagine a better way for Pep to pay homage to his teacher than to achieve the same feat?
Pep to his players:
If I could do it, so can you!
