Fergie needed to park the bus Madrid copa del rey style pressure the sh*t out of the player and try to pollute and clusterfuck the midfield so Xavi-Iniesta-Messi don't do work _
We already know Messi is the best in the world by miles, and if you give him so much fu**in space and time like you did today you're gonna get raped -
You can't play vs this team like equals, u need to park the bus, see what happened to madrid in november? 5-0! Today could have been more, there is no team in the world capable of playing like equals to barcelona, because they pass to much and move the ball around too well, a part of me hates them because they just beat my team, but another more romantic side of me admires them deeply, play too beautiful, attractive, offensive, and pass too well, like art -
Anyway, they are the best team in a long while possibly in the world, but they are beatable, u need to park the fukin bus, pressure the sh*t out of them, don't let them breathe then counterattack them and finished them up-
They expect every team to do that because that's the best way to play against them. I swear they must do a session at least once a week where it's just about overcoming such defenses. Valencia and Real have had a good go.
Two left backs against Alves and Pedro. A proper destroyer in midfield. Not a fouler, someone like Diarra, with more tactical discipline, like Pepe, a little less hot headed. Pressure the defence, high line. If it goes into midfield, drop and try to keep them in their half by pressing as soon as they cross the half way life. Play offside trap, this is where the destoryer comes in, an unpress Xavi/Ini/messi/ defenders can pick a ball for PEdro or Villa to run onto. Last but not least, pray they have an off day. Barca at 80% is enough to beat any team. Barca at 60% you have a chance but more often than not Messi is at 90 or higher, and he will drag Barca to glory when they get tired.
