TMI Tuesday: Andoni Zubizarreta



FC Barcelona sporting director. Go-to guy for news on club signings and contract information. Professional creeper on future talent.

This is how the current generation of culés see Andoni Zubizarreta, as a man behind a desk, or a microphone, speaking about a club so dear to all of us.

But this is only a small portion of the larger portrait of a legend, of a man who has given his everything to two clubs and his country. Zubi is a myth to be cherished and never forgotten.

Flawless man is flawlessCollapse )

DIVER & AGUILAR HAVE DONE IT AGAIN.
Another stunning batch of photos of the boys, this time with a vintage theme.

Diver & Aguilar:
 In 1871 the American company of Allen and Ginter began inserting pieces of card to protect the cigarettes from being damaged. It was not long before tobacco companies had the idea of printing advertisements on these cards, or "stiffeners" as they were called in the trade. In about 1876 companies began producing a series of cards that the smoker could collect. It was believed that this would encourage the smoker to continue using that particular brand.

The tobacco companies discovered that these sporting cards were a great way to obtain brand loyalty. In 1896 the first football set appeared. Footballers & Club Colours was published by Marcus & Company, a small firm in Manchester. These cards are extremely rare and individual cards are valued at £170. This is true of all the early football sets that were issued at this time: Footballers & Club Colours (Kinner, 1898); Footballers (J. F. Bell, 1902); Footballers (F. J. Smith, 1902) and Footballers (Percy E. Cadle, 1904). The cost of individual cards of these sets vary from £40 to £160.

In 1902 W.D. & H.O. Wills published a set of 66 football cards. This included George Clawley (Tottenham Hotspur), Matt Kingsley (Newcastle United), George Hedley (Sheffield United), Jimmy Crabtree (Aston Villa), Ernest Needham (Sheffield United) and Fred Spiksley (Sheffield Wednesday). Interestingly, most of the players were photographed in suits.
For the 2011-2012 La-Liga Season, Diver & Aguilar have recreated these vintage style cards with the first team squad of FC Barcelona,including Lionel Messi, who for the third year running has been voted World Player of the year & Pique,Xavi,Ineista and Puyol European and World Cup & Club Champions of Spain.

Afellay, the man who brought the Berber flag at Camp Nou.


The Dutchman, son of Moroccans, has become a hero among young Berbers after he wore the flag of the Amazigh nation on Sunday for the Champions League celebrations with FC Barcelona .

Afellay, born in Holland and son of Moroccan immigrants, has never kept it a secret that he feels part of the Amazigh nation. The Amazigh, or Berbers, are a people of North Africa who live in parts of the states of Morocco, Egypt, Libya, Algeria or Tunisia. They have traditionally been a nomadic people who lived in the desert, but for decades now they have also started living in a sedentary way in different areas such as in Alhucemas, the north of Morocco, the Ibakuyen region, where the parents of the football player were born. This area, located near Melilla, has always had a great Amazigh presence. The Amazigh are a nation without a state who fights for the recognition for their language and identity in states where they haven't always been given any rights.

PRE-CLASICO GODIOLA SPAM

PRE-CLASICO #3 PEP GODIOLA SPAM


..... Aaaaaand because I'm not on my home computer right now, I don't have access to my Pep Guardiola folder GDAMMIT so I only have the following as offerings, sorry! I'll start:






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."

DAMN FUCKING STRAIGHT. Whether we win or lose WE STAND BY THE BARCA WAY THAT WE TAKE SO MUCH PRIDE IN.


And lastly (hell, even I don't often do this, but fuck it, first time for everything):



Okay. PLEASE TO BE SPAMMING THIS POST WITH PEP PICS, YOU LOVELY CULÉS! VISCA BARCELONA!!
The project promotes dialogue and re-education through football and is going to be applied initially in Manlleu, Salt and Vic. The main beneficiaries will be children and teenagers with risk of social exclusion.



In the picture: the mayor of Manlleu Pere Prat, the grinch FC Barcelona president Sandro Rosell, the mayor of Salt Iolanda Pineda, and the mayor of Vic Jose Maria Vila of Abadal.


The president of FC Barcelona, ​​Sandro Rosell, the mayor of Manlleu Pere Prat, the mayor of Salt, Iolanda Pineda and the mayor of Vic, Jose Maria Vila of Abadal, presented on Thursday the new social project 'Futbol3' . This is a new program led by the FC Barcelona Foundation, which aims to promote human and social development in neighborhoods of Catalan cities identified as priorities for social action and community.
 
més que un club <3Collapse )

This is an amazing project. My mother is a teacher in Salt, one of the towns where this is going to take place and i am super happy they are starting this since it's a very troubled place with so many issues and i am convinced this is going to help many kids.
Apparently there's rules like each team has to have at least one girl and the team can only win the match if the girl has scored a goal.
I will try to keep updated about this and provide further information when it's going on.
With this, once again, we prove that we are indeed more than a club. <3
