We Were Beaten by a Superb Team!

We Were Beaten by a Superb Team!

There`s little that can be said about last night!

To be brutally honest we were given a football lesson by the Catalan giants and even when we got the game back to 1-1 you were always fearful they`d go up through the gears and that is exactly what they did.

After the game, Sir Alex Ferguson told it exactly a sit was even if the words probably did hurt on the way out, remarking,

"It is obvious we have come up against one of the great sides."

"We planned as best as we could. Our plan and training was very good, they mesmerise you and we never controlled Messi."

"When we got the lifeline I expected us to do better - but it wasn`t to be."

"In my time as manager it is the best team we`ve ever faced. I accept that. It is not easy when you are well beaten but no one has given us a hiding like that before. They deserve it because they play the right way and enjoy their football."


Time to move on, re-assess and learn methinks!

Granted kishaloy, Mourinho's disiplined, cautious and measured approach is the only way, however, that's not even fool proof. Barca can't be beat at their own game and are very rarely beat by the Mourinho way. They leave everyone in awe everytime they play. Guardiola is a brilliant coach and installed perhaps the greatest philosophy football has ever seen into Barcelona. The Barcelona players themselves are just insane, the chemistry is beyond belief, they know where each other are before they even get there. It's not an underperformance from ourselves but the gulf of quality of Barcelona and the rest of the world.

Barca were and are brilliant, but no offence guys, the rags were desparate last night. Chickens coming home to roost, with the ageing Giggs and Turdinand, the laughable Evra, the out of his depth Fabio and the inept Carrick all really better suited to the lower level of the Premier League. Your team is a shambles, how you scraped through to win the PL is a testament to the turmoil experienced by the other teams around you. Fully expect Ferguson to spend an absolute fortune this summer, lord knows you'll need to if you want to make the European places next season.

That comment really shows how much you watch us fcb. Let me guess MOTD highlights? If you've been watching us you'd know the only area of our squad that's even remotely near a shambolic state is the central midfield. The only one who knows how to play football of the lot is Fletcher and it's evident a bit of steel is needed as well as creativity and flair. All other areas of the team are very strong with a variety of good options upfront, outwide and in defense. Whilst we're talking about squads however, how you've got the nerve to call ours weak whilst yours lacks depth, width and creativity shocks me. You're only creative player is Silva and you're only good forward is a seemingly on his way out Tevez. Your RB is suspect due to inconstistency as is your LB due to a lack of speed to keep up with the wingers of the Premier League. Your central midfield is unbelievably defensive with the only attacking outlet being Yaya Toure ... when he can be bothered. Dzeko gets carried and is non-existant despite carrying what could be a hefty presence. Inconsistent Adam Johnson shows flashes of his potential but is only really effective off the bench and there's still massive question mark over whether you've got a big enough squad to compete in the Champions League, Premier League, Carling Cup and FA Cup and whether the current staff have the fitness to handle a 50+ game season. No offense, but from my opinion I believe your current squad is nothing more than a cup team, they can handle a sprint but not a marathon.

If I were UTD, I'd make Fegie retire and bring in Guardiola.
