10 Great Carles Puyol Moments

Carles Puyol i Saforcada - FC Barcelona's Greatest Captain



  1. My take on Puyol leaving. I just don’t get it. Like I said when the rumors first came out, there is no need for him to leave (I assume he is leaving, not retiring as he can definitely play a couple more years).

    He is in my eyes still good enough to play once a week. Sol Capmbell who was a rock back in the days, used to play once a week to because of his knee issues.

    We have many weeks where we only have one match a week, I’d play him over Mascherano. When we do have mid week matches, then of course rotate him.

    It will hurt to see him in another jersey but if he does, I wouldn't want to see him in a Middle-Eastern or Chinese league. I would prefer him to go to MLS or Japan or Australian league then. But I really wish that he would go to AC Milan because I really think that he still can play in Europe in one of the top leagues with Serie A being the most suitable for his age and AC Milan the best destination for him. A great club deserves a great player.

    So in 2 seasons we lost 2 of our best defenders in Puyol and Abidal. Will we ever be as good defensively as when these 2 were still playing? I really doubt it.

    Now that Puyol is leaving, we will need to sign 2 CB’s. How much money will the club have to spend this summer as we also need a striker and another midfielder.

    Thank you for everything Puyol. I am glad to have watched you play from the beginning of your career when you were a young reckless and quite wild but very talented RB to the best CB the club has had for the past decade. Thank you and good luck!

  2. Thanks for putting this up Allas! Btw, are these videos put up in a chronological order (10-1 or 1-10) or randomly?
