Sticky: Book Discussion Post.

Just gonna leave this right here...

“I haven’t watched the game [CL Final] back. But on the night we felt we were a million miles away from them. The only thing we did differently [from 2-0 defeat in the 2009 final] was score. Some players might forget about it the day after, but I didn’t. When you’re taught a lesson like that it stays with you. It’s a big task but I’m sure the manager has plans about how to bridge that gap. It’s going to take something special to get anywhere near Barcelona… I think it’s the manager’s biggest challenge now, definitely. He’ll set his sights on Barcelona and trying to get to that level. But I think it’s the biggest challenge for all of us – not just the manager but the players and coaching staff as well. There’s no doubt – that’s where you want to be. Barcelona are the benchmark for everybody to reach. You have to hold your hands up and say they were better, but you don’t like doing it. You don’t like admitting it, but this time they were, as they were two years ago. But you have to work to try to get to that level. All over Europe, people are trying to do what the best team in the world does – which is Barcelona. I think the biggest thing for Barcelona’s players is their unselfishness. I know [Lionel] Messi is the one who scores 50 goals a season, but among the team he’s not the big star. As a group, they’re all stars among the team but there’s not one who stands out who wants to take the credit. They’re just an unselfish team in which not one of them is out for glory.”

— Paul Scholes, Manchester United

XAVI: "BARÇA IS THE BEST CLUB IN THE WORLD"





There are some players who don't need a formal introduction and Xavi Hernández is one of them. He's the best midfielder in the world and the player who played more games in the history of Barcelona.

ALSO, copy+pasta-ing the flawless quote by our flawless Mascherano, because something so flawless should be repeated:

"No matter the opponent, Barça always plays the same. The style isn't up for discussion. If we have to die, we'll die our way."

Current Standings:


 

BACK THE HELL UP CAUSE TITO IS SPEAKING


Tito Vilanova knows Leo Messi well, and knows the striker would play of he could. But the Barça assistant manager advises caution, because if things are rushed, there is a risk of long term injury.

Messi was in the party of 19 that travelled to Kazan on Monday, even though he has not been given medical clearance. Josep Guardiola’s assistant spoke about the situation from the Tartar city, saying “Leo always wants to play and this injury is progressing well each day”.

Before heading to Kazan, Messi trained with the squad for first time since getting injured. Said Vilanova, “we are watching to see how he feels … it is important for him to recover well, with injuries like this, sometimes if you don’t recover properly, there can be long term problems”. So, for him, Messi’s fitness a more important issue tan Wednesday’s result against Kazan. “It is important but not that much, it’s only the second game in the group” he said.

As for Rubin Kazan, Vilanova said that in preparing the match “we have looked back at the games they played against us … they have the same manager as last year”. Rubin stunned Barça last time with a win at the Camp Nou and “they played in a way that didn’t make it at all easy for us.” But on Wednesday, he feels they will have the advantage of knowing more about the side they are facing.


FROM TITO'S MOUTH TO THE MESSIAH'S EARS. I PRAY FOR AT LEAST A DRAW CAUSE EVERYONE HATES PLAYING IN RUSSIA
