Alves and Abidal, one defender 100

Only 107 footballers in the history of the club have been able to reach the three digits in the tournament of the regularity.


The figure on the side usually occupies second place in most teams. The bulbs are fixed at the front, midfielders and even the doormen or power, but rarely illuminate defenders occupying the band. Not so in the club, where the figure is as important as any other.

Current Barca not be understood without the presence of two men today, coincidiencias of life, reaching one hundred league matches: Dani Alves and Eric Abidal. In addition, both began the year with 98 games and both have lost one of the first two rounds played. The Brazilian did it for sanction against Villarreal and France because he was on the bench against Real Sociedad. The two may have the opportunity to claim his land and its importance in the team holding an event to which only reached a little over a hundred players (107) in the history of the club.

Both Dani Alves and Eric Abidal to amounts having been important in the success of the team the past three seasons, since Pep Guardiola is heading the group. In fact, Brazil did the same season that coach Guardiola and since then, share each and every one of the titles has been the coach. Among them, the three leagues, which has lost very few minutes. Alves is always play them and show their numbers. In the 99 meetings have played a total of 8404 minutes, so that only 235 lost all those games. His offensive side has also enabled to collaborate with important goals for the team and assists. The Brazilian has scored ten goals in the League in his three seasons and is in the tournament scoring regularly where his outstanding contribution, since in all competitions sum twelve goals, so that only two have come in the league. But Alves offensive contribution is not limited to goals, but above all, the assists. In his three years a total of 33 passes that have ended in a goal of his companions, an average of 11 per season.

Abidal's role is different, since the balance of the equipment required to keep the clothes when his partner up the band. In his 8169 minutes played in 99 games has scored goals, but has worked tirelessly to ensure that they did their peers. French acanzará this figure in its fifth season, because yesterday was the last year of Frank Rijkaard. He struggled to adapt to football Blaugrana, but Pep Guardiola has managed to make the most of the Gaul, who passed through its worst last season, when he was diagnosed with cancer. Reaching the hundred games is a victory for Abidal, which goes beyond the numbers or performance. Being ancient is another title for both. (via SPORT)

Neymar decide on Monday between Barcelona and Madrid

In Brazil it is rumored that the crack will decide shortly between Barcelona and Madrid. It has the two offers. The boat will be waiting. Madrid urges him ...


The future could be closed Neymar next week. Then would the Brazilian international would take a decision thereon: FC Barcelona or Real Madrid, although at the Catalan club is the best positioned. It announced with great fanfare by which club has been decided. Give the necessary orders for that, internally, everything was tied up and stop speculation about his fate.

Sources close to the player who leaked the Player is coming soon and wants to take it without further delay, tired of being the center of all comments, both positive and negative. And the rumor has spread like wildfire. In Sao Paulo and throughout Brazil only talks about the possible impending outcome of the great idol.

FC Barcelona has been working hard in recent weeks to tie up the player and, on paper, would be in a position of advantage over your enemy sport.


Firstly because it would leave the player until January 2013 in Santos, pay for the operation around 60 million euros and would have committed to playing a friendly in Sao Paulo to celebrate the centenary of the Brazilian entity. It is even rumored that the player's contract is already written. And all square with the recent displacement of Raul Sanllehí Brazil.

This movement caused the Madrid into a rage and fight back by raising the amounts for the white player visit during the winter. And this is the juncture of the crack: wait at home to Barca until January 2013 (possibly summer 2012, after the London Olympics, where Brazil, with Neymar figure, search for Olympic gold unpublished) or be adventurous in the coming months with the emergency call at a club must win to end the hegemony of FC Barcelona.

For Neymar environment and the player himself is important for the future to be defined as before and is done by mutual agreement with Santos. And there the club has advantage to have better relationship with the parties involved in the operation.

It has even been known to representatives of the multinational Nike have come into play for the player runs out calling in the ranks Barca. The firm, which equips the FC Barcelona and Brazil, it would save a headache if your destination is a sponsored team and not another that has a contract with the competition. And in this area, for the record that the President of FC Barcelona, ​​Sandro Rosell, the Catalan also has more advantage than the Madrid ...

In any case, the solution no longer looms over time. Quite the contrary. And not an issue in December were in the Club World Cup final for Santos and FC Barcelona in Japan. This would take place in December 2011 and the transfer was made effective in January 2013, so the player does not suspect anything would have to stay another year in the Santos box.

The pulse Barca and Madrid have been kept by the player is coming to an end. The Catalan team is quiet. He has done the right thing. Has followed the regulations, especially in the face and without holding any ace in the hole. It is, therefore, that whatever the decision of the player, Barca will comply because, ultimately will be his decision. The Catalan club has tried to offer what he understands what is best for him, but from there, especially in the economic, Madrid will be worth the weight of the book (and the euro). The crack, of course, has the final word. (via SPORT)

The rotations return to scene before another very intense tract

The depth of the bench should be key to winning the second game in the league this season.


The match against Osasuna as a great opportunity for the players show more unusual to be key to sign another successful season. The crash comes after intense game against Milan and just before face two league games with two opponents who must fight for places in the table nobles such as the Valencia (Wednesday at the Mestalla), and Atletico Madrid (next Saturday at the Camp Nou). Thus, Pep Guardiola could choose again this afternoon by the rotations for Barca pillars are fresh to face the coming commitments.

Input, injuries Alexis Sanchez and Andres Iniesta will condition greatly alignment. In attack, Guardiola has few alternatives. Peter may be the component of the Trident usual to fall from eleven and dragging a slight discomfort in the knee Wednesday's game. In this case, Afellay could get his chance once reappeared against Milan after overcoming the hamstring injury he suffered in the preseason. The other two components, David Villa and Leo Messi, seem fixed. The Spaniard was reunited with the goal in the Champions League and stayed on the bench in Anoeta.

In addition, the 'Guaje' was the author of the goal that entrains the victory against Osasuna last season in a difficult moment, right after losing the final of Copa del Rey. Beside him is Messi, whose hunger subsides and will want to redial after not doing so at the turn of your competition with Argentina. The aftermath of the long trip to Asia weighed in San Sebastian, which he left in the second half, and last Wednesday and was seen with his usual spark, but saw no door. Two games without scoring too many for a player who already has six goals in official competition this season, three in Spain Super Cup, two League and one European Supercup.

In midfield, the absence of Iniesta Thiago can be covered by building on its core of imbalance in one on one. A factor that Andrés habitually contributes and that the Hispanic-Brazilian one can compensate in the area of three rooms with his individual quality. The presence of Thiago also allow Xavi Hernandez and Cesc Fabregas in mind to rest next meetings. Next to them is likely to be the defensive midfielder Busquets and confidence recovers its natural position.

On defense, Adriano Alves and point to the side to open the field more. In the center, Carles Puyol could start his first game as a starter, accompanied by Javier Mascherano, who would provide a clear departure from the ball. In this case, Abidal that ended up on Wednesday 'headdress', would rest. (via SPORT)

This is a reading that we do," he reasoned EFE one responsible for this platform, which has reported that "Qatar Consultation 'has scheduled a news conference at the College Journalists of Catalonia on Monday at 17:00 hours to explain the position of this group.

Barcelona have ruled that an accounting of "Consultation Qatar' to take the stand to explain to the delegates of the group's position. However, it does allow an elector from the audience has time to argue the position. (via SPORT)
