What Happen To You Henry ???

His attitude made Guardiola mad......

When instructed to warm up after 60 minutes of the game (Rubin Kazan ) the striker was slow to wear a training vest to limber up on the touchline before finally coming on after 82 minutes.

Besides ,he still has not scored for Barca since lastMmay and it is reported that the 32-year-old striker is focussed more on securing his place at the World Cup in South Africa by guiding France to a play-off victory over Ireland, with the first leg in Dublin .

Robinho Will Play For Us ???

Robinho the replacement for Titi....

The Catalan Giant,Barcelona are reportedly planning to discuss three separate proposals to the City owners for the transfer of a Brazilian.

First- involves a six month loan deal with or without the option to buy the player at the end of the arrangement

Second- They are also willing to discuss the possibility of a straight transfer for a fee believed to be in the region of €30 million, which would go some way to covering the €42.5 million the Citizens paid for Robinho in 2008.

Third -Robinho set to be mulled over is an 18-month loan deal.

Dmytro Chygrynskiy

He is one of the most expensive defenders in the club's history after €25 million transfer in August...... At the age of 20 he captained his side in the Ukrainian Cup final, in which Donetsk beat Dynamo Kiev 2-0. And last season he helped the team to recover from the disappointment of being knocked out of the Champions League by going on to win the UEFA Cup against Werder Bremen. At this stage, the Ukrainian says overcoming the language barrier is the most important thing. "I am trying to integrate into the team as fast as possible," he stated. "I am learning Spanish and everyday I have one hour classes. So it's just a question of time before it becomes better and better. But I also have a lot of people around who help me if I don't understand something." The effort and the adjustment is clearly worth it, as Chygrynskiy admits he is realising a dream come true when he join Barcelona.

Cultural Leonesa 0-2 Barcelona

2 goals from Pedro give a confortable win to Barcelona....

In this game,Guardiola opted for a mixture of youth and experience with Ivan Benitez starting alongside Rafael Marquez, Dmytro Chygrynskiy and Maxwell at the back while Jeffren Suarez and Pedro started up top with Bojan Krkic, who continues his return from injury.Although Barca failed to produce the slick football we are used to seeing from the first eleven they still looked pretty comfortable and the breakthrough came five minutes before the interval .The Blaugrana maintained their dominance of possession until the end to see out a comfortable two goal victory and Guardiola will be pleased to come through this tie with a comfortable victory after resting a number of first team stars. Barca can now redirect their attention to the Primera Liga Saturday's testing trip to Pamplona to take on Osasuna on Saturday.
