I have got hold of this ground breaking Research from a World Class Institute, it is just hot from the labs and fortunately just in time for the La Liga title race.

Estoy anonadado por este trabajo, Yrsa. Sólo puedo quitarme el sombrero y las orejas.

Muy revelador en líneas generales, especialmente en lo referente al gay factor.

@ja ja ja
Es una investigación hecha por un instituto que de momento no quiere revelar su nombre, pero he pagado una fortuna para un adelantado, pero creo que pronto han hecho sus conclusiones y saldra a la luz.
Gay factor - eso si es bueno, la gente no entiende que Puyol pica altito, pero hay gente que le gusta el morbo animalesco y aun mas en la seccion gay.

I'll never understand these posts. You owe us an explanation.

By the way, Mrs. Gago's gay factor cannot be that low. Neither can Cassano's body be rated lower than Emerson's.

The clearer graphs are those named "unequivocal", but you should't force the bars to have equal sizes.

@terreaga/noreaga (don't take that personally)
It is quite a simple explanation, a study marks these factors on different team and then a graph is created. Nothing has been cheated or manipulated...:)
On the graphs that you "can't understand" anything
don't worry, you are not meant too. Perhaps that is another post, but sometimes statistics are very vague and ambiguous, so I just took it a bit further and made it abstract and being an art sucker I thougth they looked like a lovely abstract painting, not a jackson pollock, but a minimalist abstract painting (not a fan of minimalism in its totality), but you get the feeling.
Mind map:
marks in games
silly factors surrounding the game
the lack of credibility in statistics

oooola here we go (think that explained it perhaps even too well/much)

It is clear now, darling.

Gay factor, sexiness... ;)

I was just kidding. Before reading your explanation, I thought I could understand what you meant. Now I think it's just too fucking complicated.

In fact, I was going to write "what the fuck..." in my first comment, but I didn't mean to be rude.

Oh, yeah, minimalism. I hate that stuff. I'm not too keen on Pollock either.

What is "noreaga"?

forgot to mention
gago is ugly, sold as a pretty boy
cassano is short and fat, at least emerson is slimmer, but not much to hang in the christmas tree either.
but it is all up to the investigation. What do I know? :)

Don't think the bars are forced, they just look slighthly similar.

Noreaga - it just rhymed. some kind of hip hoper from the youth times.

Yrsa, creo es mejor contestarte aquí.

Si tienes razón ... me apasiona cualquier cosa relacionada con la antigua URSS (Rusia o cualquiera de las otras repúblicas)

Ya sabes que hablo ruso (mejor dicho, chapurreo ¿sabes que quiere decir esta palabra? "hablar un poco" y me ha ido bien para practicar. Kiev es una ciudad preciosa, de verdad.

Sí, fuí al museo de Bulgákov pero, como ya suponía, no tiene gran interés. Con Bulgákov pasa como con otros grandes de la cultura y es que en el extranjero se les identifica como rusos cuándo no lo eran. Por ejemplo, Bulgákov que nació en Kiev.

I know that Xavi likes Bryan Adams. What do Puyol and Gio listen to, that their music factor is even worse?

Saviola, giuly and iniesta seem to do best.

What do they listen to? Oasis?

Anyway..I just came across your blog thanks to a link from marcela on Guardian.

I just have to say..aquest blog es la millor pagina sobre el barca.

gracies per tots..visca barca!

ets mols guapa, vols baillar amb mi? :)

@ Jordi
Giuly likes French stuff, so he scores a bit higher than xavi.
Puyol likes these awful Catalan rock bands.
Needs little more to say than that.
and thanks for your kind words about the blog, but I am an awful dancer.

Blogger Jordi Vendetta said...

true...puyi looks like one of those guys who listen to catalan rock.
but still, they are better than Bryan Adams(I would argue..)

No problem about dancing...I can't dance either really. You always have to try..
