Slow news day

As all attention is focused on Euro 2008 qualifiers, Barcelona news is very thin on the ground. The major news is that fcbarcelona.cat has undergone a complete and long overdue redesign. Considering the squad list on the old site included Patrick Kluivert and Marc Overmars and that you were as likely to seem some asp or sql error as a news story it was about bloody time. The new site is very good, lots of flash and video, more info on Barça B and the youth teams, ticketing, club history etc. A marked step up.

So what else? Barcelona have drawn Getafe in the Copa Del Rey. The first leg is mid-April at the Camp Nou. What else? Some movement on the Saviola front. After Javier's comments about not having recieved any offer of a contract from the club, Txiki Begiristain yesterday evening said that the club will put an offer on the table and seemed to indicate that the blaugrana wanted Saviola to stay. I still reckon it's all bluster and that they'll low-ball him and that he'll leave in the summer. We shall see. And that folks, is that. More later in the week as the Depor game (9:00pm on Saturday night) approaches.
