    Is Iraq goals still going?

    I like the way we’ve played, although Getafe has not made it that hard for us. What I dont like is that once again he have missed more chances than we have taken. This should be 4 or 5 goals to the good. Its not that i am greedy (well maybe a little) but I just hate to see chances being wasted, especially when the play leading to them is so good. Lets hope for a more clinical second half!

    Pique looks a little lumbering

    VV! Nice!

    Don’t like this attacking Getafe, but it’s better this way. I think we’ve toned down a bit.

    Messi’s trying to score a header now. It’s been too easy for him, so he’s trying to make it more difficult 😀

    Harsh tackle on Messi by Dexter Boateng.

    Pique doesn’t look so good.

    That was a scissor tackle and it wasn’t pretty. Boateng’s been owned so often, I hope Messi doesn’t get injured 🙁

    Fuck I hope Messi is okay.

    Can we please agree that Alves should be kept at least 50 metres from any free kick we’re given in the future?

  13. Kari
    November 7, 2010

    Alves should not be allowed take our free kicks.

    Messi, Xavi, or Villa all the way.

    • November 7, 2010

      Maxwell is good FK taker as well.

  14. November 7, 2010

    Keita for Xavi will be a good sub.

    sMasch is learning, but he needs to be less obvious when looking for FKs…but that’s why Busi is there to show him the ropes 😀

    Yeah, Xavi’s having to work a little harder chasing now.

    Thiago and Bojan both need to come in, and soon.

    These Brazilians seem to think their great at the free kicks when in fact they score abouy 2% of them at best.

    If he can’t score by himself, Getafe’s defense thinks Christmas is early so they’ll give him a pass 😀

    You just have to drool over the control Xavi and Iniesta give us in any game where they play together.

    lol, this English commentator on ESPN3 really has it in for Cronaldo.

    Earlier in the match “Messi doesn’t take the dive where most players would! I won’t name any names though… I mean we all saw Cristiano Ronaldo this weekend against Milan and…”

    Then he brings up Pinto, “Pinto still suspended for whistling against Copenhagen. Curious to note that Pinto is suspended for two games for cheating, but a player like, say, Cristiano Ronaldo is not reprimanded for blatantly cheating against Milan, pretending to be hit in the face when he wasn’t…”

    Pedro GOL!

    Pique red?! WTF!

  27. Auld Super

    Pique off !

    The trident of Alves, Messi and Villa worked together well in the first 35 min, its like the ‘big 3′ in Miami, once they start gelling its over. Alves must feel like a kid in a candy shop now that he has not only his RF (Messi) making dynamic runs, but Villa at CF is doin’ work too. In fact Villa made 4-5 diagonal runs in the first 35 min, Alves passed up on all of them, opting to feed Messi instead. I hope Villa does not get discouraged.

    What the fuck was that second yellow for

  31. Kari

    Keita warming up.

    Umm… what?! Pique red.

  32. Jim
    November 7, 2010

    Bugger !

    does he miss the Classico ?

  33. BA
    November 7, 2010

    that was fuckin stupid.

    It’s for a handball, but I think it’s harsh…

  35. Jim
    November 7, 2010

    It was hand ball – avoidable.

  36. Jose
    November 7, 2010

    Well ummmm… I think this means that Pique will be out for Villareal and for Almeria he will STILL be on the four yellow card count. So he might not even play the next two La Liga matches in order to make the Clasico.

    I hope we murder them now. UNLEASE THE KRKIC!

      i would *love* for someone to photoshop Bojan’s face onto the Kraken’s body from Clash of the Titans.

    Pep should have subbed him. i don’t know why Pep waits so long to make changes when we’re clearing coasting.

    and then he takes off Villa instead of Xavi. i don’t get it.

    • Dave
      November 7, 2010

      One fault I have against Guardiola, he has a tendency to be slow making changes

  39. Dave

    Xavi on Parejo. class

  40. Nav
    November 7, 2010

    Damn, no more clean sheet 🙁

  41. Kari
    November 7, 2010

    F*ck. Iniesta should have scored, brilliant save though.

  42. Auld Super
    November 7, 2010

    Silly Pique. Leo’s on fire I see a bright future in the game for this kid.

    • Clue(less)
      November 7, 2010

      yeah I tend to agree, I think Leo will be a good, if not great player one day. That is if he can fit into our system lol.

    November 7, 2010


    At least it’s a game now. We had to become complacent and 10 men for it to happen.

    Dani dummying the ball in our box. *facedesk*

    Busquets comes on. waited too long to bring Xavi off and it’s a negative substitution. what’s the aversion to Thiago?

  46. Nav
    November 7, 2010

    Busi coming in.

  47. Kari
    November 7, 2010

    Busi for Xavi

    Good call.

  48. BA
    November 7, 2010

    this 2nd half is retarded. we’re playing stupidly, bad subs, and Getafe are getting closer and closer.

    as Maxwell clears 1 off the line. we’re losing focus and looking very poor.

    • jordi(TM)
      November 7, 2010

      Bad subs? who else if not busi? keita?
