THE GRASS JUST GOT LONGER ON THE OTHER SIDE

Or was it taller? whichever one Xavi says. Xavi s now confirmed as Barca’s head-coach after Real Madrid general Koeman was brutally betrayed by his comrades in failure and ousted from his post.

TODAY WE’RE GOING TO BE LEARNING ABOUT GRASS

Here are some interesting facts about grass that you may not know of:

Grass is Green.

Grass can be found on the ground. Don’t be surprised if barca players dive.

Grasses are also used in the making of paper products. Expect barca’s defense under Xavi to be made of grass.

Grass is Used to Make Alcohol. Expect barca’s players to be hitting the bar like alcoholics during games with Xavi as head coach.

Grass is the Oldest Living Organism. So nothing’s going to change for barca with Xavi. Expect same old problems to continue.

Grasses clone themselves each year as the seasons change. Expect the same variation of tiki-taka/barca DNA with xavi. Nothing new. New coach same playing style.

Over 10,000 Different Types of Grass Exist. There are many different ways to play football but Barca still gone barca and use tiki-taka.

Grasslands depend on a very delicate ecosystem for their survival. Never forget that barca players will go down easily at the slightest of touches. Very delicate team, even more so now with Xavi.

That’s all for today folks, hope you enjoyed this class. Tomorrow, we’ll be learning some interesting facts about Toni Kroos.
