Last summer, when he was presented, Luis Enrique explained his Barça would be an "attacking team". He really wanted to play attacking. Not even daring to determine what this meant. "Attacking". Period.

Nowadays, after 7 months of competition, I'm certainly sure that they play "attacking". With no control on the midfield, with Xavi on the bench and solving the matches with long passes and direct football, there's no doubt they play "attacking"!

It's not that predictable and boring game anymore that was used to slow down and take control of the match when necessary... that static attack that prevented to penetrate closed defenses... that team that hypnotized the world...

Memories from El Clásico are excellent

After Martino's accidental brake —who we didn't forgive, for example, losing possession versus Rayo Vallecano,— now things are different. Now direct, spectacular and exciting. Memories from El Clásico are excellent.

Mathieu's header covered first half tachycardia. Cristiano's offside —before Bale's shot— made us forget that we could have reached half time losing 1-2. And Suárez's masterpiece hid Benzema's in the tying goal. At that point, the playmakers on the field.

Anyway and whatever they do, I think we have never known how to play box-to-box. Fantastic, then we will be able to play "attacking"...
