OKay, i'm not gonna reply to the long ass post, but it seems to me, that your telling me that Barca was the big victim here, never hit, never cheated, never dived, never surrounded the ref, never did anything, and that Real Madrid abused them and it was THEN and only THEN, that Barca adopted these nasty diving tactics - I don't believe it was completely like this, Barca did dive, did pressure the ref, did exagerrate, in all 4 games, and same can be said about Madrid - i'm not buying the we were here to play football and when they started bullying us around we reacted card, because both teams were nasty and theres evidence on video about it ...
If you think about it, It was the exact same way in the CL final. Man united actually kept up with Barcelona in the first half, but when the second half started, it was obvious Barcelona wanted it more.
I'm wondering what game you watch man
No offense, but Man Utd never kept up with Barca, in the first, or in the second half, our first and only shot in the first half was Rooney's goal, that he pulled out of his ass, in an individual demonstration of heart and desire... before, and after that, it was all tiki-taka and Barca could have had 3 goals in because they where passing the sh*t out of Manchester United and doing exactly what they wanted - Man Utd never kept up-
Second, how did you figure out Barca wanted it more? Did they tell you this personally? or through a text message?
im pretty sure they Man United players wanted it way to much because thats the type of team they are, warrriors, desire, etc -
another day, maybe when i have 5 free hours i'll read your post and double check with video everything you're saying is for real-
cause, really its
Barca played football, a humble decent team that never ever cheats dives pressures ref's
Madrid are mean, they treated us wrong, and harmed us emotionally and phyiscially, they hurt our feelings
Barca reacted and in one day learnt how to dive, cheat, surround the ref, create non existing fouls, they NEVER had done this in their lives, but instantaniously became ARTISTS at doing this - from one day to another -
We outplayed them , always, the red card in semi's never affected them, infact they where better with 10 men, and we should have won 5-0
PS: My insecurity argument wasn't directed at you, do you know how many barca fan's are out there? I have many close friends from Barcelona that go to the Camp Nou often, and also am part of a few forums, and many where pulling the :
"With such a rich squad, with so many millions invested, with so much history, and Madrid is gonna play ultra deffensive and with 8 defensive players?"
That is definetly insecurity, because they are right about the squad, but they are also insecure, because in the first 2 games, League and Copa del Rey Madrid didn't let Barca run their usual game, and created more chances than Barcelona
one coming back with 10 players, and the first half of the copa del rey, could have been 0-2 for madrid - so all they had left to say was "i don't understand how the team who has won 9 champions league has to play so defensively" .....
Mourinho's response will be considering Guardiola told him whats up and actually did it too
Then again, he Mourinho told him whats up in the first two clasico's, and the only time Pep could tell him "what was up" was against 10, for a suposedly unixestant foul, so i don't know what you're celebrating and rejoicing about - even in camp nou higuian's goal was called off, so i don't know how only being able to win against 10, and looking for a way to get Pepe a red to be able to play your football, is telling anybody "whats up" or doing it on the field
Even though it stings man you have to admit no body saw Messi on the field when Pepe was on, not on the first league game, or the Copa del Rey final, Messi started doing his thing when Pepe got his red -
I can't wait to see the clasico's next year, now that Real Madrid played 4 matches against Barcelona, won 1, tied 2, and lost 1 with a red that obviously afected them he seems to have figured out the way to beat fcb
