PUYI SANS PRESI

(no subject)

Can anyone have a look at that : http://furia-roja.livejournal.com/695299.html#cutid1 and give me a grief translation?
And why are Barca called both Azulgrana and Blaugrana? Is this the same or is there a difference? I allways thought that AZUL was that kind of blue you see at Cote d'Azur ... any Barca-blue is nowhere near this kind of blue:(

Can you help?

BTW: can we have a "curious cule" tag?

HD Version of Diver & Aguilar FC Barcelona Football Cards

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.

An Ibi post. This time about a different attribute of his.


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.
