Well i think he really doesn't like Depor at all......... he's not the only one........... many people say Depor is old and boring.............
i don't agree with him.

Anyway.... this is very funny...:

The beginning of the game is great. Barca looked surprised and perplexed. A goal by Fran! Cool!
But then Barca started playing her game. And our players couldn't oppose nothing to them.

OK, as a resume I can say that we were good. Much better than in some previous matches I had seen. But Barca was strong and competent. And they gave us no chance to win this game.

So if we play the following matches like this one we'll qualify to European cups next year.

P.S. As to the result it was too expected.

I know he doesn't hate us...I emailed him once and he replied that his favourite team is "the Mighty Real Oviedo" and he liked Depor as he absolutely loved Donato. He's just being critical, and writing what he sees.

I liked Sid's article. And probably he's right in many aspects. He's just critical, as usual, but I couldn't find any "disrespect" for Depor in that text.
Jabo on his first rain jacket? hahaha! It's true!

Not at all. He is taking something that Molina said and working it into a routine. Humour is a very important part of his articles. And anyway, are you saying everything is fine with Depor right now?

Sid Lowe is my favourite writer on Spanish football. He is a million miles better than Marca or AS....did you read that quote from AS at the end of his article. Jeeeesus.

Well I read it again and i agree, it's not a mean criticism, but a realistic point of view. Maybe Jabo could try again to make some changes in the line-up, as the team benefits from this.

I was at the nou camp watching the game and I came to realize these things.

1. Sergio played well as playmaker!
2. Scaloni is a hothead!
3. Diego and luque were performing pretty ok at offence
4. Munitis played SO well!! Exellent!! -best of our boys without a question in that game.
5. Manuel pablo could handle Ronaldinho pretty much alone!!! He usually takes two markers!!
6. Puyol is unfortunately pretty magnificent.
7. Fran silenced the stadium quite effectivley...

-You should have seen their faces!!!
