jesus! some of you lot are cynical bastards.
I for one love to watch really great football and barca serve that up in spades.
Having played and watched football, the thing that has always struck me is that, for the most part, I can associate with footballers ability. I feel that but for a few twists of fate I could be one, I can pick a pass, beat a man, put in a tackle and read a game pretty well etc. I know it delusional but the truth is that a lot of us think the same and the truth is that in england the pro's are essentially much better versions of ourselves.
The thing about barca is that when i see them play well, like against real in la liga or the first half against the gunners, i cant even imagine what it would be like to play football like that. Its not just the way they move and control the ball, its also the way they close the opposition down in the rare occasions they have it. Its really quite amazing, the closest thing to total football i have ever seen.
I know that they dive and that they were put together with money, but that is the modern game. They have money to spend but the ethos of the team is more important, and they serve as a reminder that success is more than throwing money at players.
Don't get me wrong, If we were playing them I'd be willing ljw to rip messi in half, but when they annihilated us I'd clap them off of the ER pitch (like I did against real madrid when they bettered us in the CL).
Seeing as they are are playing scum... I'd be quite happy for them to show them up for the average cunts they are and tear them a couple of new arseholes.
