Match this saturday Barcelona Fc Vs Sporting de Gijon at Camp Nou 20.00.
The players are back for there first training session since they all have been away on International duty. In total 14 first team regulars trained including, Valdes,Pinto,Xavi,Iniesta,Cesc,Pique,Puyol,Mascherano,Cuenca,Pedro,Keita,Alves,Busquets and Adriano also were two Barca B players Tello and Muniesa joined the first team for training at the Ciutat Esportiva.
The four Players that are missing are Messi, Thiago, Alexis and Abidal. Messi has picked up a suspension for getting 5 yellow cards. (That is the last thing we need right now we need to keep the pressure on Madrid and we need are star man) Thiago and Abidal have been added to the very long list of injured Barca players they got injured on International duty (I think that International Friendly’s should not be played when there is very important leagues to be won am I the only one who thinks this )
Abidal will be out for 10 days while Thiago has strained his right Tibia in Training for Spain doctors are hopeful he will be available for upcoming matches. And thank be to God Alexis will be back tomorrow for the training session as Chile did not play there match until this morning.
Fridays training session will start at 18.00 at the ciutat esportiva training ground. Pep will also hold a post training session press conference. Pep looks like he is in need of holiday proto poor man has been under some serious stress being hounded by the Spanish press and that bloody ever-growing injury list which has happened all year, Like I have never seen anything like it one player after the next.
I hope to God everything will go Barcelona’s way this weekend because never mind it giving Pep a headache they have been giving me a nervous breakdown lately and Sporting are not going to make it easy for them.
