    It's already pointed out that being a United fan doesn't mean you should not have preferences in other leagues, but even as a United fan, there IS a reason why I hate Real Madrid, but I won't tell you what it is until you pay me 94 million euros.

    Barcelona seem to be playing a 3-4-3

    Valdés, Puyol, Mascherano, Adriano, Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Alexis, Pedro e Cuenca.

    Lets all hope Messi does not pick up a niggling injury tonight.

    That's an amazingly attacking line-up.

    Looks more like a 3-3-4. Pep rocking up 1950s style.

    Given what we saw yesterday, you should pretty much hope the whole squad gets the shits.

    Only Barca can potentially get away with playing one recognised CB.

    To be honest, their 2nd XI would beat our 1st at the moment.

    And I was only kidding about Messi, will be fun to see him scrambling to try to get out of Mikel's pocket.

    Very interesting tactics...Pedro & Cuenca disappointing early out wide...Leo & Alexis, I expect to see a lot more of that in the future

    In shot-stopping anyway.


    Messi's best assists are cursed... either they're wasted by his team-mates or disallowed :lol:

    It looked so judging from the replays, one of those things that will end up becoming a fight between Real Madrid sympathizers on here and Danny & FCBarca.

    messi's missfortune as a goal assistant, is that he is the best scorer, so when he gives an assist many times is wasted

    on the other hand, de maria and ozil have Ronaldo, Higuain and Benzema to chose

    Barcelona don't have strikers at the moment.. Their only true striker is Villa, and he's injured.

    what other strikers? xavi with 10 goals or alexis and cesc with 9 goals? = 28 goals

    on the other hand, ozil and de maria have Ronaldo 37 goals, Higuain 20 goals benzema 17 goals = 74 goals

    That's because of the system they employ. Since Messi plays through the middle and seems immune to any injuries, they can't spend big and have a big name on the bench. See what happened with Zlatan.

    Also likes of Sanchez, Cesc and Iniesta are very good finishers.

    No, he's not. And all 3 of them are hardly consistently prolific...

    It wouldn't be much of a problem if Pedro found his shooting boots again.

    Record breaking one right?

    Well the one about scoring most goals in Europe ever? These days it seems like he breaks a record everytime he touches the ball.

    Getafe, not even attempting to get out of their own final third let alone half...unless they release a counter...Sitting back, not sure what the point is at this juncture to continue to just play 9 behind the ball
