Costa Rican

2.1 million

Highlights of his career:
El Tico "Luigi" is another recruit that was spotted at "El Amigo" joint on Lansdowne and Bloor.

Striker

Nationality:
Nicaraguan

3.2 million

Highlights of his career:
Better known as "Topoyiyo" or "Pigmy", we can think of a more suitable name for Tyrone: "Mano de Piedra". Tyrone is better known for bear hugging with Porto this summer.

Defender/Mid-fielder
Nationality:
Argentinian
Annual Salary:
2.3 million

Highlights of his career:
Pablito's induction into the brotherhood occurred about 3 summers ago when he was a spotted as spectator of our skirmishes. As we approached him, we never believed this pale-blue-eyed blonde would speak our South-American language, much less did we expect him to be so profficient with a soccer ball between his legs.

Pablito has proven to be a loyal member of our community. He never misses a match, and he is always the first one to arrive. This is the kind of attitude that is required to make our league a success!




PATRICK GUO HUIXIAO
Age:
36
Position:
Defender/Striker
Nationality:
Chinese
Annual Salary:
30 million

Highlights of his career:
Being the only Chinese member of our league, Patrick is by far the highest paid member of the Barcelona team. His track-record of accomplishments in his native China warrant that he only be contracted to the highest bidder:

GONZALO PARRA
Age:
27
Position:
Striker
Nationality:
Venezuelan
Annual Salary:
3.2 million

Highlights of his career:
As the only Venezuelan in our league, Gonzalo is one of the latest Latin-American addition to our team. He has managed to move up the ranks of the Barcelona team by demonstrating his competence as captain and striker of his beloved Barcelona team.

Gonzalo claims the highlight of his achievements took place two years ago when he was invited to play in Barcelona, Spain in a friendly match vs. Europe's Real Madrid. The highlight ot the match was when he invaded the 18-yard line being guarded by the great Brasilian soccer icon, Roberto Carlos. As Gonzalo and Roberto Carlos clashed in a fight for the ball, Gonzalo skillfully and covertly pinched Roberto Carlos's bum. Roberto Carlos, aroused by Gonzalo's tender fingers poking such an intimate spot, Roberto Carlos giggled embarrased, thus allowing Gonzalo to sprint toward the penalty area, where he was challenged by Michel Salgado. Gonzalo kicked the ball between his legs, and as he was running past him he pulled his shorts down (Salgado was wearing no underwear). Gonzalo then blasted the ball into the net. The crowd went wild and Zidane Zidane muttered French obscenities sotto voce.

JOSE GUTIERREZ
Age:
38
Position:
Mid-fielder
Nationality:
El Salvadorean
Annual Salary:
2.2 million

Highlights of his career:

José, like the founder of the Barcelona soccer league, hails from El Salvador, the tiniest nation in Latin America. Common nationality, however, is about the extent that Jose shares in common with soccer-creation prodigy, Alfonso Carcamo. In terms of looks, brilliance, capability to seduce the opposite sex and level of IQ, there is just no comparison.

In terms of soccer accomplishments, José has developed a reputation as the fastest mid-fielder and striker in the league. It has been conclusively established that his presence and history-making goal scores are the sole reason why there are more and more women crowding the sidelines, in addition to the news media hype that now characterizes our field.

Position:
Mid-fielder/Goalie

As a result of his stellar performance in Centro Sur League, he was offered a contract to coach Brazil 2006 in Germany. It has been advised that he needs to improve his vocabulary though. And he also needs to show exemplary conduct by not screaming at his colleagues and assaulting his opponents with such disguised foul plays that have sent several players to the hospital.

Age:
20
Position:
Mid-fielder/Striker
Nationality:
Chilean
Annual Salary:
1.9 million

Highlights of his career:

Word has it that Augusto Pinochet has committed to sponsor him to FIFA 20006 where he will replace Ricardo Rojas.

According to other insider sources, it is rumored that Barcelona co-owners, Francois Lemieux and Jorge Romaña have placed multi-million dollar bids to keep him in the cold-country.
