[Barça B] Jonathan Dos Santos: "I hope it's my time"

Mexican midfielder of Barca B expects this year to prove he is ready to make the jump to the first team.


Mexican midfielder of Barça B , Jonathan Dos Santos , has said he hopes this year will reach the "moment" to show he is ready to jump into the first team, especially because the Malian Seydou Keita will be absent about a month by the African Nations Cup dispute.

"Since the beginning of the season this year I had to be mine. I am excited and I hope my time," said in an interview with EFE Barca player, who this season has been called repeatedly by Pep Guardiola .

Indeed, Guardiola hinted this week that given the low Keita by the dispute African team championship, could possibly have a player squad for the vacancy, but neither said a hundred percent and he added that his assistant had to study it technical support.

That is why although Dos Santos knows that this season is making "merit" in the subsidiary to respond to a possible call from the first team coach, admits he is not the only one who could choose to earn that position.

"There are many players who can replace, as Sergi Roberto . I will be here taking advantage of every day with my team and working to the max ", explained:" I have to show much yet. "

"Proving", repeated several times the Mexican. And is that despite being the senior international for his country and a permanent fixture in the midfield in the second division Eusebio Sacristan, the younger brother of former Barca player Giovani Dos Santos has an obsession.

After being on the line last summer to participate in a debate party with prostitutes during the concentration of the America's Cup for his country, Jonathan has focused this season to regain the confidence of his club, technicians and the fans, after being sanctioned by the federation of their country and apologize to Mexican fans and Barca.

"I know I'm working fine, I'm doing a good season with my team and I know Guardiola can count on us anytime, "he explains. "And merits" to regain that trust, she adds cautiously, "I think there is some."

More mature and settled in the subsidiary, which is one of the pillars, the club rewarded his channeling with a renewal until 2015. Guardiola also has been involved in several meetings with the first team, as a few minutes in a win over the Milan in the Champions League in selfsame San Siro..

"What I can contribute to the first team? If you already have everything up to have! Jokes, but not their ability to add" a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of teamwork and a little touch. "

In any case, his head is now in the reserves, who yesterday escaped him two points against Numancia in the Miniestadi, which have only managed ten of thirty points to be seasonal.

"We were not at our best. It was a tough game and although we knew we had to win in the end the draw is not such a bad result," he noted. "But maybe he adds self-miss by a little more forcefully earlier. We always have a goal lead and we draw, take more of firepower both back and front. We must also put them up." (via MD)

Guardiola: "Espanyol can play a bit"

The Barça manager warned the fans on Saturday that the team managed by Pochettino "isn’t only a young, strong team that fights and comes looking for you” but also “they bring the ball out well from defence".

Speaking at a Camp Nou press conference, Guardiola admitted that 2012 is certain to be even more of a challenge than the year just finished: “The team will be tested again and it’s getting harder and harder".


For Josep Guardiola, this Sunday's derby against Espanyol is "yet more proof" of how competitive La Liga is. And he is convinced that every match between the Barcelona rivals reveals one common denominator – both teams exercise intense pressure. "We're playing in a difficult stadium. It's one of our most difficult games of the year and this year won't be an exception. We've up against a very tough test – let's see if we're good enough to pass."

A difficult stadium

Guardiola believes the derby "could be a match that sets the tone for the month." "Previous experience gives us a good idea of what we'll find. Espanyol isn't only a young, strong team that fights and comes looking for you but they can play a bit. What's more their ground has always been tricky for us. It was like that when they were at Sarrià and at Montjuïc, and it's the same in Cornellà. It's one of those away games that you always mark down as difficult when you look at the fixture list."

Iniesta fit for action

Without a doubt one of the best bits of news of the day was the medical all clear for Andrés Iniesta: "He's been declared fit by the doctors and he'll almost certainly be in the squad. It's very good news. It wasn't much and now he's fine again. The team is always decided on the day of the match. Tomorrow we'll see what shape we're in and depending on that I'll decide."

Asked whether the Club was considering some kind of replacement for David Villa, Guardiola made it very clear that this isn't on the table: "We're attacking pretty well, creating a lot of moves and quite a few chances. If a few things are changed about then that's adjusting to the opponent. We're not going to the transfer market. These are the players we've got and depending on them we'll play one way or another."

Welcome to Márquez

The ex-Barça player worked out with the youngsters of Barça B on Thursdayand and on Sunday it was the turn of his former team-mates to welcome back the Mexican international. Rafa Márquez, who currently plays for the New York Red Bulls, is keeping in shape during the MLS break at the training grounds of FC Barcelona. Guardiola told us: "I'm pleased to have seen him. He's a wonderful person and helped me a lot at the beginning. He's happy. People who have given so much for this Club are always welcome here."

A replacement for Keita?

Guardiola admitted that he's not sure yet if he will bring in a player from the reserves to cover for Keita, who leaves for the Africa Cup of Nations on Monday. However, he pointed out that Mascherano can also play in midfield. (via FCBarcelona.cat)

Busquets and Romaric, warning of sanction


Pep Guardiola , who has provided 30 different lineups in 30 official matches played, will be without Sergio Busquets in the league match this Sunday (21.30h) to play at home to Betis midfielder if Badia del Vallès is now his fifth yellow card. In parrots, only the Ivorian Romaric is in danger of facing the Sevilla-Espanyol on Saturday (18.00h). (via MD)

The meeting doesn't discard that Maxwell leaves


Maxwell Scherrer (30 years, contract up to 2013) is having this season a residual protagonism inside the fourth project of Pep Guardiola to the front of FC Barcelona. The Brazilian left-back just goes into technical plans in part because there are colleagues who are showing a much higher level (Abidal, Adriano) and also in part by Pep's bid in matches behind by three men. The conclusion is that 'Max' hardly account for Guardiola and less on the games with some substance. In fact, a regular at the bench and, when they have been available almost all partners has gone into the stands.

In this situation, the Brazilian and his agent are aware of the market and a willingness if an attractive offer comes in sporting and economical change of pace in today's winter signings. Within the policy stance is clear: do not sign now, nor will anyone in the market, but if a player is not comfortable, ask away, has a good deal and Guardiola does not prevent it, you open the exit door.

In the case of Maxwell , in the club is known that there is some interest from several clubs (Milan, PSG, Marseille, Benfica). An interest that has come to the offices of FC Barcelona in an indirect way but everyone knows who has promoted: Mino Raiola. And the controversial agent Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also the representative of Maxwell Scherrer. With Raiola, say from the club, anything can happen.

In any case, Raiola is trying to seek the best for his client, who is tired of sucking bench. Within the directive Barça footballer understands this concern and respect. Nor spurn the opportunity to enter a million if it wants most Maxwell is going, which also entail that the club will save a tab that, although not the highest in the team, has many zeros. (via MD)

Espanyol-Barça derby championship

"To win in Cornellà is key for the League", the message that has given Pep Barça.
Pochettino waits that, with the help of the tier, Espanyol thinks that "can win."


The derby is traditionally the main event of the season for Espanyol and Barça although there are many more, when Pep Guardiola said that "of all parties of the year is always special and it certainly is" sounds with a singular sincerity. And the evidence that there was a phrase for what the press is Barca coach told his players yesterday: "This derby is vital to winning the league."

Guardiola usually speaks with great respect of any of its rivals, but there are times when his speech shows more feeling. As culé crib, knows the desire of Espanyol when playing against Barca . The Espanyol have not won the derby since it premiered Cornellà-El Prat, a motivation evident to them that is offset by the need for Barca to not give more points to Real Madrid in the fight for the lead and the presence of many homegrown living the rivalry with the same intensity as their colleagues parrots and also the ever-present memory 'Tamudazo' which, not long ago, took a great title to Barca. If, besides all that, the derby is used to release the League in 2012, passion is assured.

The crowd-white, which sets the stage for today's derby usual, is eager to take revenge from 1-5 last season, including the tie that in the first Espanyol-Barça played at the new stadium 'parrot' Guardiola was subsequently assessed as "a key point to win" one of his three consecutive league. The last victory Espanya l in a local derby and there was even in his old house, in Montjuïc, in the 2006-2007 season. The aspiration to enter zone 'Europa League' is a further incentive for Espanyol in a derby between two clubs which today look more than ever, their quarries.

The Barcelona is drawing a great track record. His last loss was against Getafe and has since been all joy for the fans of the Camp Nou, and joys of truth. Took the lead at the Bernabeu and was proclaimed world champion continued in Japan. From Real Madrid 1-3 in the four games played by the Barcelona -two World Cup and two-marker has been 21-0.

The moment it reaches the derby is strategic in terms of recognition for Barca Guardiola aims for win number 100 in the League to celebrate his election as sung best coach in the world, an award that will be delivered in Zurich tomorrow at a gala Leo Messi that will crown his third straight Gold Ball and Xavi Hernandez will put back on the podium of the largest.

With low and assumed to David Villa and Ibrahim Afellay , the Barça had the great news yesterday of discharge from Andres Iniesta, recovered from the hamstring injury in his left leg. The Return of the '8 'gives Guardiola the opportunity to face the derby with a gala lineup, except for low annotated Villa . Be seen whether the coach bet again by a defense of three or four retrieves. Espanyol Javi Lopez recovered, but still without Raúl Baena, Walter Pandiani and Javi Marquez.

If Barcelona is virtually confirm their presence in the quarterfinals of the Cup, the memory coolest Espanyol is in the same tournament, a 2-1 in Cordoba, which will force you to take very seriously back at Cornellà. If Guardiola almost always choose to moderate euphoria culé environment, fellow Espanyol, Mauricio Pochettino , turned to the opposite mood, appealing to blue and white pride.

"You cannot go to the game thinking that you cannot win Barça... We will go to for them from the first minute." To Guardiola it won't plunder him of surprise. "The field of Espanyol was historically complicated for us. It was Sarrià, it was Montjuïc and it is Cornellà." For that reason you go key to win the League to win today the derby. (via MD)

Cesc-Alexis: Premiere at the derby

Hardened in similar games in other countries, the two reinforcements of Barça debut before the civic rival.


The two arrived in the summer to further strengthen Barça, scored in both the classic and the two live Bernabeu today its first derby against Espanyol. Alexis Sanchez and Cesc Fabregas suggest Cornellà ownership in a particularly hostile area, the style of the Santiago Bernabeu, where they signed a big game. Guardiola wants to have today with the explosiveness of the Chilean and the arrival of Catalan and they added another notch to their record of derbies.

Alexis and lived as a player clashes with River Plate and Boca Juniors before, at age 17, wearing the shirt of Colo Colo in his country, the historic rivalry with the University of Chile. That day, the young Alexis was allowed the luxury of scoring a goal in his team's victory 4-2 and celebrate her hands to her ears. The Chilean premiere of the Barça shirt also took place in one of the greatest rivalry game, against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu in the Supercopa of Spain.

For Cesc, Barcelona derby is not new, played dozens of them in the youth ranks at Barca, but never had the chance in the first team. In return, enjoyed the intensity of the clashes between Arsenal and Tottenham, the old North London derby, and also in the games against Chelsea.

Thiago Alcántara today could also enjoy their first few minutes of derby 'senior'. The youth has experienced the clash city from the lower grades, but has not yet had the opportunity to be measured at Espanyol in the Primera Division or the Copa del Rey. Fontàs, one of the last homegrown officially to join the first team, and played the derby last year at the Camp Nou (2-0) as a starter.

Cornella's party will also mean the return of Andres Iniesta Barça. Injured in the last game of the year, manchego took the Christmas holidays to speed their recovery and will return today to a state that last year I cheered for their Jarque remember the World Cup final.

The derby will be the last game of Keita before joining to his selection to play the African Nations Cup. The Malian player could have Cornellà minutes before getting to the orders of his coach, Alain Giresse.

Guardiola would not confirm who may be his temporary replacement in the first team and, indeed, said he has not yet decided whether he will go to a player's subsidiary. "Mascherano can play midfield and I think it should go up because someone in the branch itself, which is two months with us to then finish playing a game. We will be seeing little by little, "said Barca coach.

The two most fertile quarries League

For several seasons, the derby derby city is synonymous with the quarrying and every season that passes, the tendency is further accentuated. No other Premier League team can boast players from both home and Barca and Espanyol, now face in Cornellà homegrown twelve each in its workforce, excluding Verdú and Sergio Garcia, trained at La Masia although members Mauricio Pochettino team. In total, 26 home grown players for a derby that has combined local roots with the intensity of the great rivalries in football world citizens. The rivalry between La Masia Sant Adrià and now live a special match in which Barca won the school's first assault for having trained two of the mainstays of Espanyol, Joan Verdú and Sergio Garcia, who came to make his debut for the club's first team official game. (via SPORT)

The objective of Espanyol is to win the center of the field

Javi López is the great novelty and could play in the double pivote while Romaric will go up its position to have superiority in the wide area.


Pochettino is clear from last season that Barca can not play one on one. Their pressure approaches have always gone well, so the coachc will tighten objective from the very top and try to have superiority in the wide area. Therefore, the coach will use a 4-2-3-1, but it will be a 4-3-3, as will the double pivot Romaric to upload your position. Behind him, the coach could place Javi Lopez, who has recovered, along with area Forlín destruction. It's something that has been meditating to give more stability to the team.

Espanyol may suffer without the ball, but it will come with his usual defense, which is fast. No changes other in the back and midfield dominated containment. Up there a line of three players with Weiss and Verdú by bands and absolute freedom of movement, while the pivots Romaric help and seek to exploit a rebound to try his powerful shot. Above, except surprises, is Sergio Garcia, who is giving a great performance up front.

The alignment passes through Esrei logic scheme, although some names may vary. Rui Fonte Thievy or have options for their work, although the team lost offensive capability clearly on the wings. Espanyol will come to bite and leave little space. No markings to man, although many aid. The solidarity of this team is great and that is its football. Hold and go to the counter to do harm.

[Barça B; Liga Adelante; Week19] FC Barcelona B 1 - 1 CD Numancia


Barcelona B and Numancia were gave today a tie (1-1) at the start of the year, a result that did not satisfy either of the two sets, as did so many merits both for losing the match to tie the victory.

Year opened the branch in his feud challenged by the long Christmas break Eusebio Sacristan that the technician had given to his own, no more and no less than sixteen days holiday deemed appropriate for his team to regain energy.

Something seemed to have succeeded when, after a somewhat hesitant fifteen minutes, Barça injected the pace needed to refine the game to your taste and enjoyment.

The key Eusebio had it when he changed sides and Deulofeu Tello, who had started from the bands left and right respectively, and immediately noticed the team in their game. Significantly improved its presence in the grass and sometimes even to a trickle, began to sprout from the boots of Soriano.

The clearest after a pass Rafinha measured, the striker sent the crossbar after chopping above adamant goal. He liked the club for a while, but managed to stifle that momentum Numancia near the break.

Special thanks to the inmates of Cedric, who took advantage of defensive mismatches culés. A center of '10 'as took Montoya the sticks, when Lake Junior was about to head for goal.

The schedule of afternoon siesta more inviting sofa and blanket and that led to the film. No clear owner, with a more direct game, about Juanjo was surprising when, unmarked in the area, sent a header just inches from the post.

The restart did not seem to change the script, although in this case was Sergi Roberto who blew a face to face. The azulgranas pressed, but they knew that something was missing. Maybe a little touch, some accuracy may certainly quite calm and greater presence of their brains.

Only when they realized it and neurons of Dos Santos, Rafinha and Sergi Roberto began to connect, the party plunger. And in those, Deulofeu let out a meta Closed center pad Eduardo Soriano is horrible and always Soriano, did not spare the gift of kings, marking both pleasure.

But, as in the first half, some endured the rule of Barça B. Was half time and the exchange of blows broke. Repelled spreaders auctions and Tello Junior Lake and counterattacks for both sides were continuing.

The Numancia got his reward. Del Pino headed without opposition, something that is repeated too often, a corner kick and tied the score at the local defensive parsimony.

The referee annulled a goal to Soriano and the game went crazy in a final that anyone could win, so the deadlock seemed so unfair as deserved for both. (via MD)

[Former player] Reduced to five games Cameroon's Eto'o penalty

"We want to revive this team that has lost its soul," justifies a federal member of Cameroon.


Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafut) reduced from fifteen to five the-match ban imposed on Samuel Eto'o by a strike last November led to the cancellation of a friendly match between Cameroon and Algeria.

Following a meeting of eleven hours began Friday and ended this morning in Yaounde, the executive committee of the Fecafut announced that decision, which is equivalent to the striker and captain of the national team will be eight months without playing for his country.

"We want to revive this team that has lost its soul," said Antoine Essomba Eyenga, executive committee member.

"We want discipline in this team. To this end, we need all the players because they are all useful," said Essomba

The Federation revised Cameroon striker's penalty after this week the country's president, Paul Biya, called the head of the agency requesting "a solution to the suspension of Eto'o," the sources said Fecafut.

The Federation also held a two-game sanction for the second captain, Enoh Eyong, but set aside the fine of 1,500 euros Assou Ekotto imposed on the player Benoit.

The discipline committee Fecafut Eto'o accused of encouraging his colleagues to boycott the friendly match to claim the payment of bonuses to the players, so the Cameroon federation must pay $ 500,000 fine on the Algerian Federation.

Eto'o, who is active now in the Russian Anzhi accepted at the time the measure and said he would not appeal the penalty, but called on the leaders of the Fecafut as "corrupt." (via Marca.com)
