Welcome to USA Cule

This is the first post of USA Cule, the first English language site or blog (at least as far as I've seen) dedicated exclusively to coverage and discussions of all things related to the Futbol Club Barcelona.

Barcelona is the reigning Spanish League and European Club Champions. Most would agree that they're the best club team in the world. The club's motto is "Mes que un club," which is Catalan for "More than a club." The motto is a reflection of the complex socio-political factors that always seem to run concurrently with the club. Catalan Nationalism, liberalism, and anti-facism are just a few of the many deep and power issues that find their expression in this one soccer team.

At the end of the day, though, it's all about the soccer, and Barcelona has been known to play the most beautiful, exhilirating soccer in the world. Ronaldinho, Leo Messi, Samuel Eto'o, Deco, Xavi, Puyol, Zambrotta, Marquez, the talent pool is rich and deep.
