News of the Day: First Manita Of The Season, Shiny Stuff, And More…By: Ade C. | October 29th, 2012
First of all, apologies for the lack of a full match report. Yazan is stuck in an airport, which is not exactly conductive to writing match reviews. But there are so many things happening at Can Barça that you won’t notice one missed chance to argue with us about player ratings!
-Here are the highlights for Barça’s 0-5 trouncing of Rayo Vallecano on Saturday. It wasn’t the best of Barça matches, and Busquets as a CB kept us all on the edge of our seats, but the result was great and there were excellent performances by Villa, Cesc, Alba, Adriano, Pedro… even VV kept a clean sheet!
-Today, Leo Messi was given his second Golden Shoe, because we’re sure he’s running out of golden stuff to put on his shelves. Or because he scored 50 goals last season. Either one.
-And, speaking of golden things… the list for this year’s Ballon D’Or is out, and it has five Barça players: Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets… and Piqué, who apparently did lots of good things this year, though we never saw them. Oh well. We’ll keep our ‘Masche Ballon D’Or’ banners for next season.
-Finally, let’s leave you with our favourite video of the year, every year: Barça Players Fail At Dressing Themselves, featuring Cesc needing help from Villa and Marc Bartra being adorably (and understandably) vain!
-Keep an eye out for our Copa del Rey debut preview, and follow us on Twitter to be kept up to date on all the latest
