four notes from the party of shame

BarcelonaFourth consecutive victory for Barça after the heavy defeat at the beginning of the month in Montilivi against Girona. In Xavi Hernández’s last commitment as Barcelona coach, two goals from Lewandowski and Fermín neutralized an under-applied Sevilla side. Next, some hot notes.

The bastard party. After Barça-Rayo on the penultimate day, official Blaugrana sources explained that Laporta would wait for the final of the women’s Champions League to decide on Xavi. However, events were rushed on Friday and the warm corpse of the Valaisan had to watch his funeral from the away bench of Sevilla’s pitch. He also had to appear alone in front of the media to say goodbye without a lump in his throat. Xavi expands the list of legends mistreated by Laporta’s board in three years: Messi, Koeman, Jasikevicius, Barrufet… Even Eduard Romeu, the resigned economic vice-president, had a better tribute than all of them. What a pity.

Sincere thanks. In the absence of emotional videos and tears of farewell in auditoriums full of celebrities, we dwell on the detail that Fermín knew how to have with the coach who made his debut in the elite. When he scored his eighth La Liga goal, the intrepid Andalusian midfielder ran to the penalty area to hug Xavi. He, Lamine Yamal and Cubarsí will go down in history as the legacy of the terrasse, who left Raphinha and Araujo without participation in his last match, replaced Lewandowski for the fifth consecutive duel and again waited to have the favorable score to put participate João Félix and Vitor Roque, two signings that he never asked for. Messages recorded in minutes.

Realism à la carte. “Barça women’s is an island within the club and we hope they don’t collapse it.” Watch out for these statements from Xavi Puig, the manager responsible for the European champions. They remember a little the ones that have served to justify, according to the official account, the traumatic termination of the other Xavi, the former coach of the men’s team. But there are differences. If realism killed the eagarenc, Puig is lucky to be a good friend of the president, so he doesn’t have to suffer for his excessive honesty. So much so that he is right and that Giráldez’s team is, in effect, a balm for the disenchantment of the culerada with the uncertain sporting, economic and institutional situation of the club. Champagne and cookies!

What stadium envy. And not because a large sector of the Sevilla fans mobilized to dress in black and boycott until the 10th minute of the game. Nor because the cries of “directive, resignation” piled up with the ball in play. If Sánchez-Pizjuán was envious it was because the stands were full of supporters instead of customers. Seville, like Barcelona, ​​is a very touristic city, but its football clubs retain all the charm that Barça has just lost this season in exile in Montjuïc, where the members have been – voluntarily – a minority and the occasional fans they have made the wave with the marker against. The validity of this drift depends (in part) on Flick and Limak.
