Football meme: [1/2] clubs: Fc Barcelona 

 For me, Barca is unconditional. I feel Barca.
Thats the great difference from the people who dont feel it.
I love this club. I feel like its mine.

Steven Gerrard retires from international football

“He played at the highest level over such a long period of time – his longevity and determination will see him remembered by everyone as an England great.”

Football is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. But destiny was fortunate upon the Spanish; immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Power was given to the footballers; great and mighty warriors. And eleven, eleven positions were gifted to FC Barcelona who, above all else, desired t r u e f o o t b a l l.

The most important thing at Barcelona is ‘m é s q u e u n c l u b’ because football has to be more than a game. It has to help change the way we see one another.
