Haha, 1.14. Amazing, PEP<3!

Damn it, 1.14 is funny indeed. Pep is so charismatic and full of emotions. Look at Keita's run, he is so happy. Barcelona, where happiness happens.

love this video.
and to add to koko,
"barcelona, where passion lives"

Yes, Pep has been great for Barca, but things could have been completely different if he succeed in his plans to let Eto'o and Henry go.....

I have been reluctant to bring this up, because I don't want to turn one of the best football blogs into a music one, but I FUCKING hate how our season is associated with Coldplay music.

I mean, we make our own players, while Coldplay can't make their own music. They steal all their music from Radioheads and R.E.M.s; sounds like a madridista to me! It's antithetical to our philosophy to say the least!

Their music is for American teenagers who listen to the song in the background while buying khaki pants from GAP, before going to a Starbucks to listen to the same song on their jukebox, and that is after driving and listening to their CD in the car! In other words, they are the prototypical corporate musicians, yet their product is associated with a club that has never put advertising for money on their jersey.

I'm sure there are a lot of fans that are happy with the choice, as is our coach who played that in the locker all the time, but I personally wished that the soundtrack associated with our success was on the same quality level as our achievements.

yeah somethin like metallica or iron maiden.. well lotsa people wont agree with me! but thats what i think..
and yes... coldplay actually sucks

ElovesBarca said...

Pep Forever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lol, its true actually, its difficult to find a Pep or Barça compilation video which does not have that Coldplay song. It keeps ringing around in my head all day. I cant get it out. I think Pep Guardiola is resposible for 80% of the Coldplay album sales in Catalunya. Hope he finds some better theme for next season. Something instrumental maybe?

i too dont like coldplay and how it is now so associated with barcelona. BUT, if it is good enough for pep and he likes it, i can give a rat's ass about what others feel. pep can do no wrong in my eyes

Anurag said...

AH YES, I FORGOT. looking at his reaction when messi was fouled againse bayern, its so obvious that he always wants to protect his players and is as passionate about the game as they are. we salute this man

@harshawardhan... megadeth is better than metallica.. and they used the songs that dave mustaine from megadeth made before the chucked him out of metallica... fucking copied what dave mustaine made.. metallica fag sell-out band.

some people most likely from madrid tell that guardiola is gay?, i mean is there any truth behind it, those sons of bit.hes never keep their dirty mouth shut even they get huge thick zero from a season.

Anonymous said...

no he is not, and so what if he were? his sexual life is totally irrelevant, he is a fantastic coach and a great person, thats what matters!

Carrer de Corsega said...

I've heard rumors of him being gay since he played. I never believed them until now because he listens to Coldplay! All jokes aside, who gives a shit?! Except for his wife, of course!!

I'm glad that people here have a decent taste in music, too. If I were to suggest a new and soft English song to the team, it would probably be Reckoner by Radiohead. Pep is the best reckoner on any bench now, and I like the "dedicated to all you; all human beings" line because the way that Barca played this season was a great gift to all who watched!

But again, my opinions and tastes are meaningless!

barca4life said...

Who cares, Coldplay is what pep wants to listen to then that is what people remember about the team. Why dont you go coach the team and then you can play Metallica or whomever the hell you would like too and people will remember that

tero said...

This is a music blog now? I don't say anything about music, don't want angry Coldplay/Metallica fans hunt me down...about the video, it really shows how passionate Pep is as a person...gotta love this guy (but not that way)

barcacanada said...

you know how it is - music is different for everyone.
regardless of the roots or the real intended meaning of any song or album - it's really all about what a person feels or thinks for him/herself when listening or associating to a track.
so if pep relates to this track or relates to the recent coldplay album in some way that motivates him to work hard with his team, hell, have at her.

Ramzi said...

Just correcting a historical Fact:

Pep had no plans to let Henry go, he convinced him to stay.

As for Eto'o he was planning to get a new striker anyway. Nothing prove that his approach wouldn't have succeeded;)

Carrer de Corsega said...

Please, let me finish this music discussion by apologizing to everyone for bringing it up in the first place.

well if you dont like coldplay just mute the video and listen to a song you like and watch the video

Jonathan said...

The best compilation of the year! Suppose to win Grammy award!

Richard said...

I never liked Coldplay but now watching that vid it gave me goosebumps. I agree with sentiments of CARERR DE CORSEGA about the choice but who is to say....if it inspires Guardiola who cares. I don´t care if he is a Coldplay fan or gay. I love him. No Barca fan can ever forget this season and however he did it, whatever make up or inspirational resources he has had...thank you God!
