17 and counting

A slightly laboured win at home over Athletic Bilbao (and a sending off for the brainless Deco) makes it 17 wins on the run - a 7 point lead in la liga at the half way stage.

Ben and I didnt fancy getting soaked for a second week on the run so we saved our Euros and watched the game from our English local pub, Dirty Dick's Tavern. Like the best English pubs abroad, this one had not an English soul in (apart from us) but was packed with Barca fans who have developed a taste for Guinness or cold Bass at some stage in their lives. The darts club noticeboard had around 17 names on it, just one of them Anglo-Saxon sounding.
