    Messi shouldn’t have touched that ball and leave it for Villa to score… because he WAS offside.

    argh Pique shouldve shot

  4. Nav

    Passing it into the net indeed.

  6. Nav
    October 20, 2010

    It’s actually 3-0!

    if xavi was playing none of these off-sides would have existed he just times his passes to beat the offside trap

  9. October 20, 2010

  10. Nav

    great run by Dani boy

  12. October 20, 2010

  13. Eklavya
    October 20, 2010

    off topic,

    soccernet’s current headline:

    Inter lead ten-man Spurs 4-0 while Man United are beating Bursaspor – but the big news this evening is Wayne Rooney’s statement.

    seriously the BIG NEWS is rooney? come on.

    wow its still dangerous, we need another goal

  19. October 20, 2010

    loving what Maxwell has been doing so far. very versatile, solid and fundamental to the midfield defense. it is also valid to say he attacks a lot better without any defensive worries in his mind.

    Should be 4-0 easily. EASILY. Its all fun and games when Messi gets that pass from Pique and hes offsides, but if Kobenhaven score its going to look terrible.

    I don’t think it’ll happen, but lets get another.

    The story of the half for me is the Copenhagen guy who stopped running (because he thought he was offside)

    I literally LOL’d for like 5 minutes. I still giggle when I think about it (yes, so funny, I giggle

    We should be leading by at least 4. Pique should have shot. Iniesta’s move in the box was so good, he should have got a penalty for it. Genius.

    I stand by my claim that if we had both Ghostface and Abidal, we would have won the Treble again.

      Pique did well with the pass, but he passed it too quickly.

  22. Nav
    October 20, 2010

    The dane striker is really fast…

  23. Jnice
    October 20, 2010

    We are playing well, but this is what I mean… we don’t finish our chances. Frustrating.

    • Ryan
      October 20, 2010

      Well, the two offside goals technically beat the keeper…

  24. October 20, 2010

    I hope the team won’t play 80mins good football and then drew. and yes, we must finish our chances.

  25. Nav
    October 20, 2010

    Yeah… Pique should have slotted that one in.

  26. Josep
    October 20, 2010

    Iniesta tried to do the right thing, he ghosted (:D) through two defenders, one who stuck his leg in… then seconds later decided he wanted to foul to a light shoulder tap.

    Had he fallen immediately like 90% of players, he would’ve gotten the PK.

    ETO’O =O

    • Kari
      October 20, 2010

      Well, he got tugged back, and his ankle was clipped, but yeah, he should have went down sooner. Delayed reaction; or the classic “Damn, no one to pass to. I wonder if I’ll get a pen if I fall now” tactic.

  27. Josep
    October 20, 2010

    Down a man and 4 goals, Spurs have as much possesion as Kobenhaven.

  28. October 20, 2010

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh maxwelllllllllllll

  29. October 20, 2010

    Leo really thought Abidal could fly…

  30. Tajh
    October 20, 2010

    Man I didn’t know all of you where here on this post…Having me commenting by myself on the Isaiah post!!!!! I feel stupid 🙁

  31. Kari
    October 20, 2010

    Alves really needs to work on his crossing. It’s really starting to annoy me…

  32. Tajh
    October 20, 2010

    I just wish all of our future signings have that same attitude SMash has….He truly wanted to come here and is showing his worth by not complaining but learning and playing admirable..

  33. Kari
    October 20, 2010

    Hmm. We’re starting to implode for some reason. And it’s not only because Copenhagen have started the half strong.

  34. Kari
    October 20, 2010

    Visca Barca! Get the second goal!

  35. Louis
    October 20, 2010

    Really missing our maestro so far in the 2nd half. (I didn’t see the 1st)

  36. Kari
    October 20, 2010

    Messi’s starting to wake up… Here’s hoping he stays awake.

  37. October 20, 2010

    Villa should be taken off. Pedro should play if he is fit. or Bojan.

  38. October 20, 2010

    Raul scored 2 for Schalke. why aren’t we up by 2 yet?

  39. Josep
    October 20, 2010

    Raul tied Gerd Muller’s record.

  40. Kari
    October 20, 2010

    It’s frustrating, but this is what “adapting” means. It’s not going to be all well and good.


  41. Josep
    October 20, 2010

    Xavi and P! warming up. That pass from Messi to Villa was amazing. Villa needs to control that.

  42. jordi(TM)
    October 20, 2010

    Twas a foul on villa, anyway id like to see more bodies in the box, get pedro on or something

  43. Josep
    October 20, 2010


  44. Josep
    October 20, 2010

    Thats why we need to finish! This should be 1-1 we are extremely lucky. What a shot!

  45. Kari

    Santin is a fail.


  46. October 20, 2010

    if we really draw this one, i will withdraw myself from barca news for 2 days just to show my anger. #@$^$&*TJY

  47. jordi(TM)
    October 20, 2010

    lol at this santin guy, conspirators would say we’ve paid him out.

  48. Tajh
    October 20, 2010

    Im guessing this Santin guy is a fan of ours!!!!

  49. jordi(TM)
    October 20, 2010

    why are our final passes so casual? ITS ONLY 1-0 guys!

  50. October 20, 2010
