Villarreal B- Barca B at the Sports City on Saturday

Too bad it's not when we are hosting Barca's first team, but this should still be a cracker.

Villarreal B host Barcelona B in a Segunda B (is that enough Bs for you?) match in Vila-real at the Mini Estadi on Saturday.  This will be a homecoming of sorts for Juan Camara and Adrian Ortola, two Villarreal prospects whom Barcelona lured away who are now with Barca's B team.

Barca B have nine points from eight matches, Villarreal 19, but Barca is still Barca and there is a bit of mystique about La Masia players, even when they haven't been terribly well coached (as our friends at barca Blaugranes tell us has been the case during the past year or so).

I have not yet seen our team selection for the match, but I do want to encourage you to watch it--it starts at 12 noon Eastern Daylight time in the US, 9AM Pacific.  You can see it on Villarreal's official site--go to and click on the "Villarreal TV Live" box in the top right, immediately under the "Pamesa Ceramica' logo. If, like me, you were stupid enough to schedule something during that time, you may be able to watch the replay via youtube; look for it.

This would be a great win for us, so try to watch, comment below if you do, and cheer the MiniSubmarine on to victory.  Endavant Villarreal B!
