ladies win the league or something, also very important tournament with silly hats

APPARENTLY OUR GIRLS WON THE LEAGUE AND I FORGOT TO SPAM YOU ALL WITH CELEBRATORY PHOTOS. RECTIFYING THIS POSTHASTE.

To set the scene: Barça Femenino went into the final match of the season, at home against mid-table Sporting Huelva, three points ahead of Athletic Bilbao, but with a negative head-to-head against the Basques (who lost only to Barcelona, and that away, all season long, so they weren't likely to do any favors to Barça and drop points in their last match), so they had to get at least a point to win the league. And you would think this would not be very difficult, considering that Barcelona have never even drawn, let alone lost, at home all season long, but these things have a way of complicating themselves (ask any Manchester City fan, amirite). So thank god for Marta Corredera, who scored just after halftime to give everybody's nerves a rest. The scoreline remained 1-0 until the end of the match, when the party began! There's a bunch of links about the match/league win, including to an English match report, over at Futfem in English, so I'm going to skip all that and go straight to the fun part: PICSPAM TIME!!!

You know who else won the league and deserve some congratulatory picspamming up in here? Barcelona Femenino Juvenil-Cadete!


especially my girl Alba Moreno, because goalie captains are fierce <3

And then, because there is no rest for the flawless, the ladies were off to the Basque Country to compete in the Torneo de Getxo, which is an exhibition tournament mainly significant for the fact that Basque berets are involved in the trophy ceremony. Very serious business! Which totally explains why most of the weekend's twitpics involved booze, tapas or both.

BY THE WAY, DID YOU KNOW THE COPA DE LA REINA IS THIS WEEKEND? WE'RE PLAYING ATHLETIC IN THE SEMIFINALS. STAY TUNED IF YOU ENJOY HEARING A WOMAN ATTEMPT TO CONVEY EMOTIONS VIA THE INTERNET WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY CHEWING OFF ALL HER FINGERNAILS AND PULLING OUT ALL HER HAIR.




ETA: if you have any questions at all about our ladies, don't be shy to ask! after all the time I spend stalking them on twitter and trying to read articles in Spanish, I would be overjoyed to be able to put my newfound knowledge to good use. XD

The MAESTRO hath spoken

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.

Our 10 Men of 2010 - Man of the Moment, Andres Iniesta (Football+)

Another Football+ article! \o/
According to the introduction of this feature, Our 10 Men of 2010, they cornered got 9 acclaimed football writers to choose "the player who captivated them the most over the past year". And then they fanboyed over them.
Of the 10, there were Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Samuel Eto'o, Didier Drogba, Brett Holman (don't you give me that "Who's Holman?", missy, he is our flawless Aussie son ok :< ♥), Honda Keisuke, Neymar, and, of course, our very own Iniesta and Messi.

So here is Iniesta's article, AKA Sid Lowe fanboying (a lot) over Iniesta, and proof I was not joking about the Star Wars thing. For many of you, there's probably not a lot that is Brand New Information, but I think it is still worth a read. :')
When I finish copying down Messi's article, I'll post that one up, because my back is killing me atm.
