Quote of the day: Hiddink

Barcelona are a very advanced team, very skilful who know how to handle the pace. I like their football philosophy. They're a team that likes to play attacking football. They are top, so it'll be difficult to play them.

Guus Hiddink, Chelsea manager

"Barcelona have this approach of attractive football which is required by the whole region. And they stick to that. This is a philosophy that will pay off in terms of results - it's not guaranteed every season of course, but it's a general philosophy of how football should be played and I share that. You need to look at how young kids love to play football - everybody likes to see beautiful football."

Hiddink started to plot his Head-ink on papers.

Mind games.

Total crap.
The team which wins is the best team.
Through my experince,Barca always have played for the crowd.they are top class entertainers,never the best team.
I think this team would also go the same way as their Ancestors.
Attractive football but no trophies

all that comes to mind...


They came into Liverpool and showed them who was boss. They def. looked better than us on the 2nd leg.

Drogba went down at 88min and Lampard looked brilliantly unmarked in his center role.

Not to mention Terry sat out the whole match because I think of yellow cards.

Hi pep, I just want to ask you a question.In the official site says: Three Barça players will have to be very careful not to be shown a yellow card in the semi-finals. Puyol, Alves and Sergio Busquets are all one card away from a suspension.

Why they didn't mention Messi?
He is one card away to a suspension, right?

Ramzi said...

Durimmi, Messi was booked only once. So he is two cards far from suspension.

I agree that we would be foolish to take Chelsea lightly. However, they did not look better than us in the 2nd leg. Because we both came in with huge 1st leg advantages, Chelsea and Barca both had the same objective in the second leg: don't give up goals. Chelsea gave up four goals, AT HOME, to Liverpool, and came very close to losing the tie. Barca, on the other hand, went to Munich and only gave up one goal, winning the tie easily. Chelsea's game was more exciting than ours, but given the situation, they did not play better than we did.
