7 (4.3.17) La Liga returns


(This was not posted on time, but for the sake of consistency I’m posting it now —BH)

In this episode of Barça Talk, we check in with FCB femení in their Champions League campaign, clue you in to Barça B’s historic 12-goal win over Eldense, review the first team’s match against Granada, and look ahead to Sevilla and Malaga.


El Clásico in Miami, FL

Surely, you’ve heard by now that a friendly El Clásico will be played in Miami, FL this summer. The match is set for July 29. Tickets go on sale Monday, March 20 at 10am (not sure which time zone that’s for). The video on the sight is pretty fun. The narration is the voice of Rivalry, and there’s one line in it that gave me gooseflesh!

“This game, this confrontation: Barcelona and Real Madrid. It is my crowning achievement.” —Rivalry

Coming up in Episode 3 (3.6.17)


I’m still processing the news that Luis Enrique has announced he will not be returning to manage Barça next year. No doubt, this will feature heavily in the News segment of Monday’s episode. It might even be the only news item I talk about.

But also in this next episode: GOALS, GOALS, GOALS!!!!!!!

Match Reviews

Since I’m not an expert, but just a devoted fan with a microphone, I don’t like to get into highlight commentary or play-by-play descriptions of events in the games. I prefer to focus on one area of the team. In episode 2, it was the midfield. In this next episode I’ll review the two matches against Sporting and Celta, looking closely at the forwards.

Culer Stories

An Unlikely Culer, Part Two—This is my own personal, confessional story of how Barça changed my life. I’ve been assembling the story week by week—it wasn’t fully formed prior to recording it—and I’ve finally figured out its proper title: An Unlikely Culer. This is part two of my story—Part One was in Episode 2 (2.27.17).
