That Barca team was different, but a lot of it had to do with the system. Busquets-Xavi-Iniesta was a better trio for how Pep wanted to play, they just mauled teams.
Real Madrid although even more successful than that Barca team in Europe never made me go “wow, I’ve never seen anything like that before”, which is what I felt when I saw that Barca team.
Real Madrid reminded me a bit of our treble team although better, it wasn’t always easy or pretty but they’ve won the lot through sheer determination and obviously quality across the board, Barca was just miles better than everyone else.
At their best they’ve made every team they faced, week in week out, to look like amateurs, they dominated teams on a scale I've never seen before or since, top teams.
Having said that, the impact that Casemiro made here, prime Busquets couldn’t have made in a million years. Casemiro is a far more adaptable player, whilst Busquets would’ve needed a higher calibre of players around him to thrive, plus all these important goals that Casemiro scored this season…
What a player we got ourselves, unbelievable signing, in 3 or 4 years we could be speaking of him in Cantona terms as a signing that was the catalyst to a huge period of success to the club.
