+ Abidal is fit again! Match squad for the Valencia game hasn't been released yet [because Pep likes to keep all of us, including the press and the players, on our toes]. The certain absentees so far: Victor Sanchez, who's been drafted in to help the B team again, Sammy Eto'o who is suspended, and injury victims Andres and Gabi Milito.

+ Speaking of fitness, the first day of training after the Sevilla game saw the players undergo some fitness tests, same as when they first turned up for pre-season. The coaching team wanted to see how everyone was going - apparently things look fine, which is always nice to hear.

+ Feel free to disregard the rumours regarding Yaya Toure, because he's not going anywhere. Yay!

+ The club launched a major initiative this week in conjunction with Nike and UNCHR (the United Nations refugee agency) - the MES campaign, which will see a range of sports goods being put on sale with the proceeds to going towards improving the conditions of refugees. The project was unveiled on Thursday in a big press conference with players and coaches from most of Barca's major sports teams in attendance.

Bit more on the Valencia game: they haven't lost away yet this season, so it's going to be a tough game, especially since David Villa is so very good at scoring against Barca. The good news is that Valencia won't be at full strength - Silva, Edu, Moretti and Alexis are injured, Vicente's a doubt, and Marchena is suspended. The bad news is that they have a coach who knows how to make the most of what he's got.

The tactical battle between Pep and Unai Emery, the two youngest coaches in La Liga, should be a fascinating one.

Kick-off is at 10PM local time. Visca el Barca!
