He's still proven to be a warrior throughout his career.

I haven't seen evidence that the likes of Messi, Xavi or Iniesta have a warriors spirit and sometimes that kind of gusto is needed when you're having an off day.

The thing with warriors is that they don't care when the team is being outplayed or outmatched. They step up and do something about it. Roy Keane vs Juventus in 99 (the match that should have won him world player of the year) being an obvious example.

Haven't seen him have a good all round game this calendar year despite him still getting goals. Surely Villa and/or Pedro start at the weekend and/or vs Milan. Fair play to Madrid though. Clear strategy that they executed very well. Great to see Pepe still get his moment on his birthday. Never has an off day. What a trooper.

WOOLCOCK, the lasers thing happens all the time in Spain, especially at Barca. Amazes me that none of the players ever complain about it. Amazed that flare thrown down a whole tier didn't hit someone.
Iniesta was excellent and by a mile Barca's best player.

Ronaldo is incredible. He caught Messi last year IMO after being well behind him and now it's looking like he's surpassed him. The guy's obsessiveness with being the best is paying off.

Players could learn a lot from his dedication. It's embarassing when you see someone like Nasri content to waste away the talent handed to him. I'm not saying their natural skill is in the same league but it's still rare to see a player match work ethic to their god given ability like Ronaldo has.

Come on now, even if Roura had played the team that you wanted, Madrid would still have handled Barca. Too many players out of touch, Ronaldo is red hot and Di Maria was way too much to handle.

Can't agree with that, especially before the third goal. Iniesta looked like the only guy capable of creating something and had absolutely no help from anybody else in midfield. Xavi in particular was absolutely garbage, though. Looked like a tired, beaten man.

They seem to have built up a tolerance to them. Pretty sure Messi and Penaldo have both scored set pieces with laser beams in their eyes.

I really hope the flare was meant to land on the pitch and the fan just threw it like a bitch, rather than meaning to throw it in with the Barca lot below.

Adriano comes to mind, at one point I though he'd be the next Ronaldo but instead he turned to drinking. Was great at PES aswell

Horrible flashbacks. I used to boss PES5 & 6 online with Roda JC & WE United. 99.95% of the jackasses online rushed straight to Inter for 'dat Adriano/ Ibra combo.

Fuck Seabass/Konami for making Adriano literally unstoppable. Totally unwarranted.

Re: 2012-2013 Discussion Thread for La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, etc

Went to the gym, lifted some weights. Cleared my head. Feelsgoodandbadman.

After tonight I only have one question:

Do we even GOAT anymore?

Eliminated from two competitions in the course of a week. Yes, the CL is pretty much out of question, Milan WILL SCORE and the tie will be over (There is not clean sheet with this defence).

First off, congrats to Madrid. Can't complain about anything, they played clean and fair and were far better than Barca.

I can't help but wonder, where did the winning mentality go? What happened? Out there was a team of losers, a group of players who didn't give a shit about performing tonight. Where was the desire? the initiative? the leadership?. NOTHING.

The lunacy of Barca management to put that team out there was a disgrace. I mean half of those guys didn't deserve to start after the Milan game, yet they all get a starting place in the next big game not to mention using the same tactics? LOL. Dani was the ONLY player out there that actually deserved to wear a Barca shirt today. He gave 100% through the entire game, and deserves an applause. Iniesta was only good for the first half, then again I don't really blame Andres since he's te best fucking midfielder in the world and being used as a winger. What a joke.

But who was leadership? Xavi and Puyol should be the ones commanding the team if Tito isn't there. These guys have been here long enough to know how things should work, these guys are supposed to be the future coaches of Barca. Where was it tonight? Puyol can't carry this team at 35 years of age anymore, he is still a good player but we can't rely on him to. Xavi should be the most ashamed out of all players imo, no leadership in the midfield, no desire he's just been terrible and I cannot remember the last time he's had a good game. Horrid, absolutely horror show from Xavi. He doesn't deserve to start in the next weeks clasico. Thiago should get the green light over him.

And then there is the GOAT (who was WOAT today) Messi. I can't help but feel like he feels he's above the hierarchy of player selection, that he feels he can just do whatever he wants and automatically get a start. This is bullshit, Two terrible performances with both Milan and Madrid where he was invisible for the entire match. Truth is, any attacking player in the world would likely get benched if he performed like that in two back to back big games. Awful. This has been the worst I've ever seen Messi by far.

I really really feel bad for Villa and Tello. Now before you all jump at me and say how bad Villa was when he came on, realize that starting a player when the game is 0-0 is completely different than bringing him on when the team is down 2-0 and completely demoralized. Two players who could literally address every issue that exist in the Barca attack, rot on the bench while Pedro and Iniesta somehow get a call up. The media, every supporter around the world, the entire fucking Nou Camp was crying for Villa to start after the disaster that was Milan. Terrible, terrible, terrible management.

Killed on the counter, expected. That's what happens when you play 2 highly attacking fullbacks and two centerbacks who just don't click as well as they used to. Puyol because of age and Pique because the guy is just an idiot. Attack was non-existant, rely on Messi, that will work right? Every team in Europe knows how to overcome these one-dimensional tactics now.

This is by far the worst defeat in the past 5 years. Not just because we lost, but because we got fucking killed, smashed into oblivion by our main rivals at the Nou Camp. Next weeks Clasico doesn't even matter, it wont change anything big in the overall scheme of things. This is the one players should have turned up to. Disgusting.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." -Einstein

inb4 TLDR.

This video sums up my thoughts on Barca these days.


Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.
