The Barcelona 1st team players that signed fairly young from other youth systems: Busquets(17) Iniesta(12) Jeffern(16) Messi(13) Pinto(19) Pedro(17) Puyol(17) Sanchez(18 ) Valdes(13) To the Fabregas issue, he stated that he wanted to play for Arsenal and he was "one of many" at Barcelona. I wish tha...

Exactly. They play the victim when it suits them but also play the aggressor when it suits their needs. There's a clear double-standard and I'm glad most people see that. All we had to do is ask the kid and the deal was done(completely immoral, I know). You didn't see us tapping up the kid with nume...

damn, you gunners snapped up Jon Toral from Barca's youth system. If this fellow turns out to be another Cesc then I am gonna regard Wenger as a footballing genius. Apparently this Toral kid was considered to be a potential crack of the future, which is a 10x better way of saying star player. :lol:...

Oh yeah, forgot my predictions for tomorrow & wed.

Cop v Chelski ------- 1-1 draw.

RM v Lyon ------ 2-1 for Lyon.

Inter v Bayern ------- I think it'll be a 2-2 draw.

OM v United ------- pains me to say it, but United 3-0. I'd love to see OM 1-0 but I can't imagine United losing right now.

Panch I thought it was a penalty against Messi. That run was phenomenal and he was just smashed off the ball with no attempt from the defender to win the ball. Yeah, it was a pk, thats what I meant to write but maybe i didn't add coma's and its harder to write.. It was gonna be a great goal, and he...

Forgive me if I am incorrect, but I believe that Panch has brought up the point of Messi been too greedy before. It is difficult to come to a conclusion on that sort of debate. When Maradona scored against England in the world cup, no one was saying he was greedy, even though he obviously was, they...

What did set plays have to do with the goals barca conceded? Was your commentator watching the game or did he tune into an old match? Barca got caught on the counter for one of the goals and the keeper got caught out for the other. This. Arsenal had very few set plays in general. Maybe this was a s...

There is a collective short-term memory loss among Barca supporters when it comes to Ibra. To say he doesn't compare to Villa in anyway is well, ludicrous. They are different players. One had the La Liga experience, one didn't. One is a tremendous talent on and off the ball(Villa), and Ibra is a lit...

^ I'm assuming you two are reading what I'm writing, but are you understanding it? I'm basically saying "What team goes into a CL tie thinking they are going to lose? Why would having that mentality be helpful to your situation?" I'm taking the positives from the first leg and comparing them against...

Whatever.. I'm not a barcelona follower, but im not blind either and i love good football, inter was "a winner" and not many jumped on that bandwagon... the thing about barca is they play beautiful football, thats why people love to watch it, but remind me what my team of preference has to do in th...

^ you two....at least be informed all around before passing judgments. JD came off injured while the scoreline was 4-0. The other 4 were Kos+Squa's doing. Go back to spewing your nonsense though, it's funny how little know about Arsenal yet seem to have it all figured out. Hell, I might just know ju...

Personally am kinda glad that Barca are trailing 1-2 at half time. That's like the best result overall for the first leg. If twas 3-0, barca players would go into the second leg thinking meh. And second leg wouldnt be as exciting for the supporters. Drawing 2-2 would mean Barca knowing they hav the...

bla bla bla bla good job, a blooper, offside goal, near misses by barcelona, you guys got fired up, and won 2-1 do you have any idea of how much being home and away weighs in profesional football? If barcelona had 5-6 sitters in emirates, how many do you think they will have in camp nou.. ? 8-9? ma...

Never said they will, did i? Never said you said they will, your just suggestion something that to me is highly, highly unlikely and I would no better than that... Barcelona need a 1-0 and they are through, did you know that? Messi missed a sitter Pedro missed a sitter Messi had an unfair disallowe...
