Why February Is the Cruellest Month for Barca

February is usually the worst of months for Barcelona; season after season, they stutter. In 2010-11, their 16-match winning run came to an end in the year’s second month with a draw against Sporting Gijon. They were also beaten by Arsenal in London. A year earlier, 2009-10, they lost for the first time that season, at Atletico Madrid, and were also held by Stuttgart in Europe. Last year, they were defeated at Osasuna in February – only their second loss of the season. And in 2009, the year they won all six trophies, they tripped in February too, with a draw against Betis and a loss to Espanyol. In Europe, they were held by Lyon.
