Doing Business the Barca Way

By the way, while slagging off Real Madrid earlier, I didn't mention that as Thierry Henry is widely regarded as The Coolest Footballer In The World (c), I would imagine that if he were to move that he would surely choose Barcelona, an infinitely cooler club than Franco's XI.

Okay, they may be sadly getting sponsors on their jerseys for the first time, but they still possess a sense style that Madrid's vulgar, establishment minions could never match.

Then today Barca vice-president Ferran Soriano responded to the speculation concerning Henry in a dignified manner which their opponents this evening would do well do adopt: "There are a lot of rumours in this industry. Everybody would like to have Thierry Henry in their team, but he has a team and a contract, and we respect that. One day if he is available we would talk - but not now. Anyway, we're happy with the players we've got."

Class. You can't buy it.

Yeah, right. Barca showing class on the outside and stuffing the Catalunian papers with rumours from the inside. I don't have anything against them, but they're certainly not completely innocent.

Yeah, I guess no-one's pure in football nowadays, but at as tapping up goes, its a bit more mannerly than clandestine meetings with super agents in top London hotels.
