.. and oh so impatient.
it’s mid-february and still no green light for puyi. with his injury vacillating from getting better to not-so-good from day to day, it’s hard to look forward to matches knowing that el capitan won’t be defending. tomorrow, we face gijon, and puyi will not travel with the team. i’m still hoping for a small miracle so that he can be ready when we face arsenal (although reports as of late suggest otherwise)
anyway, the one bright spot in this puyi-less week was xavi’s interview with sid lowe. the full article can be read here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2011/feb/11/xavi-barcelona-spain-interview?CMP=twt_gu
SL: In England do we overrate physical players? You mention Carragher, Terry …
XH: Whoa! Wait! Be careful. They’re fundamental. We’ve got Puyol. Technically he might not be the best but it’s incredible the way he defends.
i can’t wait ’til your next game, puyi!!
