Just a fantastic snap of wee Andres Iniesta, a ‘slightly less-wee’ Pepe Reina and Sir Bobby Robson running through an acoustic version of ‘Freebird’ at Barca’s La Masia youth academy during the mid-90s – nothing more, nothing less

Amazing to think that there’s only a year between Iniesta and Reina in this photo – Pep looks like he’s only a few years off Bobby!

    …..and so the Meek shall inherit the Earth.

    English International football would never have given Andres a chance.

    We need to rethink our old ‘brut’ hook it up there attitude and choose players on technique and football intelligence

    Oooh,… there’s that volatile combination of catholic priests and the buttholes of prepubescent boys.

    You never know when one of these two groups will try to molest the other.
    mind you, all the adults have the molester look going.
