Just a quick post to let you all know I have joined the new social network Tsu. I first read about the site just over a week ago when I came across this article from the New York Times which explains the idea of the site to pay users for the content they post. It doesn’t look like anybody is going to get rich from this but it may be possible to make a little extra cash, especially if the site takes off.
I will be posting Barça stuff regularly and hopefully I can build up an active audience and create some lively debate. If you’d like to join (it costs nothing and there are no obligations) you need to sign up through a friend’s invitation (see below). If you would like to know more I suggest you read this overview of Tsu.
To sign up just click on this link – https://www.tsu.co/Barcacentral - and fill in your profile and send me a friend request. If you like you can post your username/profile tag in the comments below then we can all follow each other. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. I hope to see you there.
Former Barça president Josep Lluis Nuñez spent his first night at the Quatre Camins prison last night. The 83-year-old Nuñez and his son were found guilty of tax fraud and even though his lawyers managed to get a reduction from six years to 26 months the attempts to postpone the sentence with appeals has run its course. Nuñez was Barça’s president from 1978 to 2000.
Leo Messi will achieve an exceptional feat if he scores in Barça’s league game at Almeria tomorrow (Saturday 4 pm).

Barça beat Espanyol 4-2 on penalties to take the first edition of the renamed Supercopa de Catalunya in Girona tonight.

This year the tournament has been renamed as La Supercopa de Catalunya and Barça take on Espanyol at the Montilivi stadium in Girona tonight in the first edition under the new name (kick-off 9.30 pm). Luis Enrique has named thirteen first team players and seven of the best of Barça B’s youngsters for the game. Luis Suarez looks likely to start which should certainly make the match more interesting than usual, and Adriano Correira has received medical clearance and is also included in the squad.
