Bartra: “Barça has given me everything”
FC Barcelona defender Marc Bartra (22) spoke to the press recently about his role in the first team squad, pending contract negotiations and his expected future at the club. Bartra thinks that his contract negotiations are well under way: “I’m certain that everything will work out okay. It’s something between the Club and my agent and I just have to focus on my job.”
Bartra started by expressing his confidence in Martino: “I didn’t get many minutes at the start of the season , but I’ve been getting more. I’m confident and I think the team is too. I am ambitious and want to play all the games I can – not just a few minutes here and there.” When asked about plans to leave Barcelona, Bartra said:“I’ve never considered leaving – I’ve been 12 years here and Barça has given me everything. I hope to be a Barça defender for many more years.”
Bartra states that his contract renewal talks are going positively: “I’m relaxed about it – it’s going fine. I’m certain that everything will work out okay. It’s something between the Club and my agent and I just have to focus on my job. I feel I have an important role in the team and I’m trying to give the boss something to think about when he has to choose the team.” Bartra expressed that the guidance of senior players such as Puyol, Piqué and Mascherano is helping him: “Puyol, for example has helped me a lot – he’s always keeping me on my toes, he’s confident in my abilities and he gives me plenty of advice.” Bartra also advised Sergi Roberto to be patient for minutes and praised his friend: “With the qualities he has, I am sure he will go far.”
Bartra concluded with a positive message for the fans at the end of 2013: “We are all keen to go into these last four games because we want to finish the year on a high. We ourselves have set the bar high and so we have to accept that if we don’t reach the heights we’ve set, we might get some criticism.”
Aah, Thank you very much my friend!!! :))
lipogram \LIP-uh-gram, LAHY-puh-, noun:
a written work composed of words chosen so as to avoid the use of one or more specific alphabetic characters.I suddenly felt possessive of our boat, our game, a travel set with tiny magnetic letters. “Our board is missing a few tiles,” I said. “Just makes it more of a challenge…a lipogram.”
— Gayle Brandeis, Delta Girls: A Novel, 2010So the poet whose hunger is simply to speak—tell truths, right wrongs—what need has he for the lipogram, for colors of rhetoric, antilibrations of phrase on phrase?
— John Gardner, Jason and Medeia, 1973
Lipogram entered English at the turn of the 18th century from the Greek lipográmmatos meaning “missing a letter.”
