barca mes que un club

Barça 5 - 0 Madrid (I'm still adding stuff keep checking)






I know most of you are asleep / wasted / getting laid but I'm going to post this anyways.
Feel free to add any gifs, macros, and images from last night (this morning) El Clasico.
I'd love to have a great collection of them and save it in my ~memory.
I'm sure there are loads of them :)

waitin' for el clásico...

“WINNING AGAINST REAL MADRID IS LIKE HAVING AN ORGASM”

hey

On Monday (the 29th) another historical clásico will take place at the Camp Nou. With some new entries, like David Villa in the blaugrana ranks and Mourinho on the visitors’ bench, but mostly with historical veterans. One of them, Xavi Hernández, only had a token role in the first two, having been recently promoted to the first division team; but since the year 2000 he has become one of the great protagonists of the clásico. The midfielder has kindly agreed to go over the last ten clásicos with us.

there's also an interview:

Q: A rival’s comment.

A: I was 18 and I remember there was a little argument on the pitch and Raúl came up to me – at the Bernabéu – and he gave me a little slap on the cheek and he told me: “Hey, relax.” I was left stunned. It was like he pulled hierarchy on me,

Q: If it was up to you, which Real Madrid player would you sign for Barça?

A: My two friends Iker and Xabi Alonso, but it would be because of the team feeling, not because either of them is “superior” to the level of quality we have here.

Q: The Real Madrid player you have admired the most.

A: Raúl. Very much. Plus, I have a very good relationship with him. Hierro, too, who was my captain in the selección (NT) and is an incredible person; his image does not reflect his real personality. He was hated a lot here (at Barça).

Xavi is better than anyone.

Xavi Hernández is the first winner of the "Premi Catalunya de l'Esport" (Catalunya Sport award) given by the Generalitat de Catalunya (the Catalan government) with the support of TV3 and Catalunya Radio. This award honours Xavi as the best Catalan Sportsman of the year.
The award is meant to recognise the sportsmen and sportswomen that give Catalan sports an internationa name.



You can watch him saying thanks this morning in here (sorry the nice people at tv3 won't let me embed) : WEARING CHERRY PINK

Translation of what he says: "I'm very happy, satisfied and pleased. I wanna thank everyone that has made this award possible. It's an honour and a great personal satisfaction. And also thank the club, the teammates and the coaches that have made possible that I've been awarded.

BTW, as much as i am thankful for this video, what is this tacky-ass speech, recorded after training? For God's sake, make a nice award party or something so he has to wear a suit and all the barça players are there and stuff.

EDIT: THERE WILL BE AN AWARD PARTY!!!!!! IT'S GONNA BE ON DECEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
