Barca squad news for Depor clash: tragedy strikes

At times like these football seems less important than ever. Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has pulled out of the squad to face Deportivo La Coruna tomorrow following the sudden death of his father in a work-related accident.

R.I.P. Josep Puyol. May you look down upon your son with pride.

I can't imagine what our wonderful captain is feeling right now. This is just awful. Puyol has such a big heart, and he wears it on his sleeve. The condolences already pouring in are proof of the respect he commands all over the world, and of course the heart of all Barca supporters goes out to him.

The squad is also missing Xavi, Gudjohnsen and Eto'o through injury, but this latest news has left me in no mood to comment further.

Hola Linda! First time for me posting on your wonderful blog! Congratulations and keep it up!

I didn't know about PUYOL's father and I send my condolences to him.

Anyway, just wanted to stop by as it was something I wanted to do for a long time now.

And I will say it out loud here: GET IN THERE LENNON! I hate Mourinho and it was great to see Spurs beating Chelsea today!

Great...that's off my chest now.

Hi Seba! Welcome! I have to say, the news about Puyol had me very down for a while, but a string of surprise results has lifted my mood considerably. Get in Lennon indeed!
