Alexis, a marvel


The Chilean has given this year the definitive jump of quality when giving almost so many goals like he scored.

Progression and evolution.Two words that define it as being the career of Alexis Sanchez, fewer 'Child' and 'Wonder'.At 22 (Tocopilla, December 19, 1988), Alexis is now a better player and especially much more complete than that landed in Italy in the 2008-2009 season.Then, its electricity and natural talent for Dodge no one doubted.In contrast, many more shades offered its place in the tactical discipline of European football, even more rigid style of the 'calcium'.But his innate nonconformity and have interbred with the right influences laid the foundations of the current Alexis, who is on the verge of signing for the club, the best team in the world.At its inception in Chile, was struck by his indomitable individualism.Today, Alexis has captivated Barca because he has been generous with his football.As in any business accounting in the business of the ball sing the numbers: 12 goals, 11 assists.

This sums up the great season of Alexis, his consecration of the elite.In that growth toward a more eclectic player had to see the board Marcelo Bielsa, Chilean coach until recently and one of the permanent references Pep Guardiola, who could talk at length with him on a trip to Argentina when he was preparing for benches.

Today, the Barcelona coach has the good opinion of Bielsa margin of tranquility with Alexis.Neither their technical Cobreloa, where he played as a point, neither of Colo Colo, neither of River, Daniel Passarella Diego Pablo Simeone and were able to model Alexis.Paradoxically, this free spirit was what most dazzled the fans 'millionaire'.Once the 'Cholo' once said of him that "even if it gives 55 asked."So when you bought the Chilean Udinese after being champion River, Simeone almost seemed relieved."Now we have more team players, I like the path we are taking," said 'Cholo'.Coincidence or not, three years later, "the way you are taking River" may be the decline for the first time in its history.Alexis, meanwhile, has been elected the best player in Serie A and the highest projection in the world by FIFA.

The risk for Barca is that Alexis has only one year curriculum in splendor.Basically, it's not so strange when barely turned 22.For his partner at Udinese and 'capocanonniere' with 28 goals, Antonio di Natale, there is no doubt possible with him."Alexis is tremendous, you can hold in a big team," he says.It's easy to talk and the veteran Italian international, much benefited from Alexis racing across the front of the attack friuliano.

With 31 games, 27 as a starter, Alexis has divided the 12 goals in Serie grown to be dispensed one at a time, unless they more universal poker at Palermo he endorsed the 'Skinny' Pastore.Strong to the Tarascan rival rebel to retrieve the ball and each time with less artifice weakness for free, I would sign this even Simeone Alexis.

Although José Angel has uncovered one of the most promising side of Spanish football, Sporting defender began as interior."Until we finished the stage of youth, Jose Angel always acted within, and is therefore capable of reaching the sidelines and focus very well," argues Abelard.As a result of his past, Pitu also believes that football can be set to always look for multipurpose Guardiola, "it can act as both interior side lefty."

From the first day he had his orders, Abelardo was clear that Jose Angel was meant to be a diamond in the rough school of dizziness, which so many good players has given the Spanish football.In fact, two years ago and recommended it to Luis Enrique to affiliate the club."I spoke with 'Lucho' to explain that Sporting had a kid with very good condition and promised a great future."That recommendation was not on deaf ears and was Emilio Gutierrez, Barca scout in Asturias, who was commissioned to follow the footsteps of Jose Angel to have a day of sports management evolution to Barca.


Technical qualities aside, another aspect that fascinates Abelardo Jose Angel is its simplicity."It's a super humble guy, do not have anything believed. And if he comes to Pep, is also a sign in this direction," said

Technical Tuilla David Villa
Since half a year ago and had just his time at Sporting Gijon's youth as a coach, signed with the Pitu Abelardo Candas CF, group II of the Third Division in Spain, who was crowned champions of the regional phase of the Fed Cup.Last week was introduced as coach of Tuilla CD, Third, equipment for children of David Villa and which also played Luis Enrique.

Cesc secret pact


He promised last summer.Cesc output and the player approaches would be fulfilled the dream of returning to FC Barcelona.

The arrival of Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona this summer is an open secret.This time, it seems that all the pieces will fit and the player finally put on Barca.Her dream.I had always wanted eight years ago when he emigrated 'London To grow as a person and player at Arsenal.
Arsène Wenger and the player are now on vacation.Cesc is spending a few days in Bali (Indonesia), while the technician is one of the luxury resorts in the town of Merano (Italy).

Both of them spoke last weekend in London and Madrid, respectively to the media, and then by phone.They did before leaving for their destinations and to agreeing the strategy would continue until return to work.

The technician came to tell him to go quiet holiday, that enjoy and unwind, that would be all right to return.Cesc should be back on July 5, the date on which the 'Gunners', with a preview of Champions on the horizon, back to work.

Wenger, after commenting parties of France to Belarus, Ukraine and Poland, went on vacation to recharge.The choice of resort Merano, in northern Italy, was not accidental.

Stay there until later this month to become physically fit, as always used to do, and to strengthen ties with your partner.

The experienced French coach, before leaving for Italy, told his inner circle that "I, the subject Cesc lasts me one day."A statement can be interpreted in several ways.
On the one hand, only give an order, Wenger would give the green light to leaders Arsenal to start negotiations with FC Barcelona.The agreement between the player and the Catalan club is already well spoken and would only have to endorse it.

Everything is in the hands of the technician.When he wants, the transaction closes.Hence, his statement is a declaration of intent.And after what he promised the player last season: that he would leave the agency to move to FC Barcelona.Of course, the operation will seek to maximize economic benefits for the Arsenal.
Wenger and Cesc was agreed to, before starting the holiday, they would not press any to the media.`That would not have crossfire ¿.The player, as was seen, kept his word, and in Madrid, held a speech restrained and elegant with Arsenal.The coach, meanwhile, closed in either band as on other occasions.

It seems, therefore, that things run their course, which this time will be different.The player has said it actively and passively, like to play on a championship team and is called FC Barcelona, ​​a team you want and where they are, precisely, his childhood friends and the Spanish team.


Moreover, this weekend Wenger has been in Provence to meet with Jean Pierre Vernes, Nasri agent, Gallic team player.The coach made a stop on your vacation to meet with the representative to make that play football from next season will be the flag of the Arsenal.

Just as intended by Cesc, Nasri wants it now.The coach knows that the young French talent also longs to fly ¿of the Emirates' but asked to have the same patience that has had the Catalan.

Manchester United is very close to the player and now that the future of Alexis Sanchez is increasingly Barca, Sir Alex Ferguson will try to take the rest by Nasri, a player who is very familiar with the Premier League and in this sense, adaptation would have no problem whatsoever.

After years of insistence by the player and FC Barcelona, ​​Cesc's future is close to Camp Nou.This time, gather all the ingredients for the operation to crystallize.

The offer could reach 30 million more variable very high

Sandro Rosell and advanced on Thursday that in no case would the offer Cesc Fabregas this summer would exceed 40 million euros reached last year because Arsenal had already written off a year player and he had a years under contract to play in the English entity.Within the Barcelona speculation that supply could reach 30 million, but that would end any more, since it would include a clause objectives such as titles and games that could be achieved with relative ease.

Víctor Valdés prefer not to comment on the tensions experienced with Real Madrid after a season full of tension with the white team ...

"I do not speak of Madrid. I only speak the club. We know that we expect another tough season, tough. But we'll be ready. I do not care what you do or say in Madrid. You know what my philosophy I have is the ball, avoid trying to win games or goals, "said Barca goalkeeper in an extensive interview in 'El Periodico de Catalunya'.

The goal Barca Barca reviews today and reveals previously unpublished issues.Like, for example, the fact of having met a longstanding goal with his friend Andres Iniesta: win three European Cups.

"Years ago, Andrew and I said we had to achieve something. It was a challenge, our dream. That was the first league win when Rijkaard was still the coach. Frank was a very important person for me. So when we won the first League, Andrew and I set ourselves to conquer a series of titles. That challenge we had ever present, he, like me. We can not forget that we share many things in La Masia. And when we won the first league, we said that we continue to make history at the club. We could not stop ever, "he says.

For this reason, won the Champions League at Wembley last month "was the greatest day. The greatest thing I've ever lived."

Valdes has words of appreciation for one of his predecessors at the door of Camp Nou, the area now director of football Andoni Zubizarreta: "For me it was very special. I wanted to share that title with him. I gave him my shirt. Actually , that shirt was already his. Because I played with the green of Zubi. As in Paris. Rome did not let me out with that color, I had to play with the black shirt. But at Wembley could not play another color.'s shirt which led in 1992. played the final in the spirit of Zubi. It was his shirt color. It was Wembley. He deserved it. "

The goal of L'Hospitalet, also explains why he uses both feet to play, as well as hands: "The coach (Pep Guardiola) has always told me I should take part in team play. That must be one. There are times when I should play me as a libero. And that's my role. I always say that Guardiola has helped me to play football. " (via SPORT)

Cesc, July 5 limit


The start of the season Arsenal set the timing of the operation key for Barca.

As is consumed, the signing of Cesc Fabregas will go down in history as the longest transaction in the time that FC Barcelona has been negotiated.The arrival of midfielder is serious since 2009.We are about to officially open the summer of 2011 and all players involved in this complex plot begin to be clear that the outcome can not be delayed much longer.In fact, the July 5 looks like a date of great importance in the symbolic and pragmatic, to the arrival of Cesc to Pass Camp Nou hypothesis to reality.The explanation is obvious: that day the season begins 2011-2012 Arsenal and Cesc should be normal and do not start working with those who have been his companions.Not because the player is going to take a rebellious attitude, but because the negotiations should be ready by then.

In fact, they are co-tailed Cesc Emirates in the locker room that have already made public that the future of their captain is not there with them, but is in Barcelona.The start of the season at Arsenal should not be taken as a minor issue: just remember that last year, August 5, 2010, Cesc joined the job template 'gunner' 'the day of lovers' became the official photo with the staff and adjourned the way out.It was after a summer that started with him airing if Arsenal would go "only to Barca."This time, Cesc has changed tactics: public discourse remains extremely cautious, behind closed doors and has told his coach.Arsène Wenger, who deprived him of his dream again.Media pressure in England also sweeps for Cesc.The prestigious 'The Times' has come to publish this week "Cesc is not their fault that Arsenal will not win anything, he can leave without fear."

It seems, therefore, that Cesc requires a blow, at least for now.In the coming days, announce the arrival of a high delegation FC Barcelona to London.Barca that it should not reach 40 million euros it offered last year.The key is whether this is a starting point or an end.

Mascherano as Liverpool overcame the resistance of
It is not easy for anyone to reach the level of effort demonstrated Javier Mascherano to sign for Barca, but from the Nou Camp has always put the Argentine midfielder as the example to imitate all the players who want to wear blue and red.Liverpool Mascherano long pushed to accept the offer from Barça.So much came 'The little chief' who gave up part of their income that had already agreed with Barca to make the operation was.

[Selection Under-21 Euro GL] Ukraine 0 - 3 Spain


A brilliant Spain broke with sufficiency of Ukraine, led by the talent and skill Thiago Mata striker, scorer of two goals in a win (0-3) used to pass as the first semi-finals and qualified for the rub London Games

Spain continued where he left four days ago against the Czech Republic and again showed an undeniable authority with Thiago, who is growing in every game that passes, as the driver of the game.

The '19 'of Spain has an inexhaustible technical repertoire and moves through the field as a dance floor, playing, bartering, offering long and increasingly attentive to profit from their actions, without getting lost in unnecessary baroque.

The second goal was all a show of its kind.He broke several opponents with a bankruptcy and a change of pace and took a pass good for Montoya admitted.The center is nearly finished off the network on the line Adrian definitely become the scorer that the team needed.

Spain already had advanced earlier in a pass inside to Anderson Herrera.Kryvtsov slipped.And Mata, alone, on low to beat Kanibolotskiy.A goal that helped to unclog the game and make way for the Spanish race.

-Anderson Thiago Mata: the perfect connection that was based on the superiority of Spain.His constant movement and position changes that broke the web with Ukraine had tried to disrupt his game to find success.Was unsuccessful.

Because Spain was accumulating opportunities without flinching.Three of them in combinations and Didac Muniain, who crashed the ball around the post on a pass from the baseline at minute 4.

They feared the Ukrainian ends, but almost never able to activate.Yakovenko's team barely had the ball and could not go on the counterattack, his favorite weapon.Only a few centers left in the first part dangerous increases in its two sides, Butka and Selin, and a shot Konoplyanka harmless.

Much of the credit was also the opponent.Spain does not only indoor soccer.It is also a supportive team, you press up, choking and steals, led by Javi Martinez, always impeccable in court.That makes life easier for the defense, again safe.

Ukraine must win to advance to the semifinals, went up after the break.But without much conviction.Never came close to threatening De Gea, who returned to live another day alone.

Spain got a point and began to think more in the semifinals in a match where he did not feel threatened.The only risk seemed to be a key man apperceived could receive a card.Something did not happen.Although Luis Milla changes should have done before.Also to give confidence to Bojan, who needed minutes.

Thiago appeared again to give a pass to the hole to Laudrup Mata, shot down by Garmash in a move without discussion: penalty and expulsion.Valencia striker himself transformed it into a goal, the second for him tonight.

An unusual error in an assignment Javi Martinez left sold to De Gea, who had to knock Zozulya.Evil was the lowest, because the Ukraine striker was cut out and stayed in the yellow card.And goalkeeper Atletico Madrid looked after the penalty to Konoplyanka stopping him.

With one more, Spain was able to increase the score and round the party, watery late comeback by the Czech Republic against England (2-1), which postponed qualifying for 2012.Spain will now have two chances to seal it.The first, on Wednesday against Bierrolusia.
