5-1 Barcelona versus Real Socieodad
Puyol - Messi (2x) - Pedro - Villa
Barca announced to the world that they want to reclaim the Primera Division title (following the 1-1 draw of Real Madrid and Valencia) by demolishing Real Sociedad. David Villa did a cameo by replacing Pedro and ultimately scored the final goal for Barca.
Sana they will be more consistent this year especially on crucial away games.
What a first game.
First goal of the season from a set piece by Puyi. Messi being Messi. Pedro goal. Tello with 3 assists. Jordi Alba fitting in like a glove. Pique looking mostly like his old self.
And David freaking Villa. I'm so proud and happy for him. You could tell the team wanted him to have a goal, they kept giving him the ball. It was a beautiful goal, an excellent finish with the injured leg. I'm so glad he's back.
Song's in, and some are going out. Maybe JDS, Fontas and Afellay?
afellay should be a candidate to be sold or loaned.
tello probably realized that he was on the block too many times last offseason, and he came out to play earlier.

Wonderful from Barca, hope the kid get's to live out his dreams
Brave Brazilian wonderkid who was born without feet is invited to train with Barcelona
When your dream is to become a footballer and play for Barcelona, nothing should get in your way - even if you have no feet.
An 11-year-old wonderkid from Brazil has been invited to meet his idol Lionel Messi and train with the Spanish club after his talents were spotted by scouts.
Schoolboy Gabriel Muniz, who was born without feet, will fly from his home in Brazil to take part in the Spanish club's summer training camp after impressing at their training academy in Saquarema, Rio de Janeiro.
Despite his disability, Muniz is one of the best players at the school and captain of his gym class.
He can run, dribble, pass and strike the ball as well as any of his able-bodied teammates.
His best friend Lucas Santos spoke about his abilities on a video for The Sun: 'He is skillful, he goes after it [the ball], he is fearless and he knows how to organise plays. He also makes good passes.'
Mum Sandra was thrilled that her son will achieve his ambitions - especially since the family were too poor to pay for treatment after he was born.
She said: 'He started walking before he was one. We would go after him, expecting him to keep falling, but he never fell.'
Gabriel's gym teacher Jose Lopes added: 'He is challenging the social norms. When he arrived there [at the Barcelona academy], no one believed in him.
'But he proved to everyone there he can go head to head with any other boy. So much so that he was invited to go to Spain next month, in September, to showcase his talent.'
Gabriel and his family hail from Campos dos Goytacazes, a city located 170 miles north-east of Rio.
Muniz shares a bed in a tiny house with his elder brother Mateus, and they get up at 6.30 every morning to bike to school. Like every child his age, he hates homework and household chores, instead spending all his spare time on the football pitch.
Gabriel wears a prosthetic ankle and foot to help him get around in rainy weather.
He knows that his disability means he'll never be able to play for a professional football team and so Gabriel is hoping that football will one day become a Paralympic sport.
iniesta, best european player of 2011-2012!
I didn't think we'd get a 100% start prior to internationals. I certainly hoped for it and I'm glad we have it.
our defense is still very prone to counter-attacking. alex song has been a nice addition to the team, and will certainly challenge sergio busquets to do better.
