koko=barca said...

This should be a wake up call for Pep. Start making substitutions. Messi should have gone out after 45'. What a stupid game I am so disappointed. Another game + with the best 11. This was Pep's fault only.

blablabla37 said...

This wasnt too surprising really after that second half performance. Anyone else felt the 3-3 would come eventually?

Sid said...

We arenow 8 points ahead with 3 games to go. So Madrid can get 9 points maximum. We need one more point to win mathematically.

So a draw in one of the 3 matches shud do it for us.

Though Iwud have preferred to win it tonight with real loss almost a signal from god

blaugrana_uk said...

am disappointed subs shoudl have been on earlier bojan for messi, busquets for yaya who was awful, puyol looked out of his depth we were so lucky that we dodnt lose a boig wake up call for pep am soo disappointed we should be celebrating but we became too cocky it will be tough in mallorca this was a stupid surrender!!!

hahaha pep was so stupid tonight...
messi was awful so why did substitute etoo not messi?

NouBarca said...

pep has learnt anothe rlesson (I hope). You substitue. Thats why you have them on the bench. He gets carried away someimes. But a great future still.

The most annoying part is tha I place 1 £4 bet on 10 teams across europe to win.
Ajax, Rangers, Bayern, Sevilla, valencia, Chelsea, Anderlect, ManU, Stoke city and Barca. I Predicted them all to win. I was due to collect £1200. But off course my own Barca screwd it. ARRGHHH

NouBarca said...

an yes, B4L, PLEASE NEVER predict a Barca win again..lol...
jst kidding mate

la liga said...

i wish Barca could have clinched the title today for we can rest playres for the Champios league. Barca just need tie in mallorca and the title is finally orus.

"NIKE" goddess of victory said...

...no need to talk bad about our players...everyone is disappointed or angry tonight...that's normal...pep brought our first team to make things clear...but it ain't happened...f*** it,that's football...so we have to wait a little longer...but it's like sid said...1 point of three games is enough...

Ondra said...

Iniesta is injured and in danger of missing Roma.

FCB-Fitz said...

NouBarca, that's why I never place bets on my own team. First, I'm too superstitious. Second, it doubles the pain when your team doesn't win. I had a nice bottle of cava straight from Catalunya waiting in the fridge too; guess I'll have to save it.

INIESTA WILL MISS THE REST OF THE SEASON. EXTRA EXTRA. INIESTA WILL MISS THE WHOLE SEASON.

SHIT SHIT SHIT, I CANT DAMN BELIEVE THIS SHIT

Iniesta, Henry, Marquéz, Abidal and Alves will miss the final. I'm ready to say that we have lost the final for sure.

Ramen said...

omg.....

This is absolutely damn unbelieveable. Can't believe this shit.. Why the hell does this happen in the end of the season?

Congratulations Manchester United for your Champions League title. These damn injures...

Hilal said...

Not sure where you are getting your info Anony but as far as I know Iniesta's injury has yet to be fully assessed and they are not sure yet whether he will be able to play in the final. I certainly have not read anything saying he will be out for the rest of the season. Where did you hear this?

ElovesBarca said...

Iniesta is injured ~ OMG ~ I was ok when we got draw today but now....I 'm truely truely speechless >< ~

I hope he can recover on time b4 final in Rome....OMG~ he seemed active in the match...how did it happen??? I'm feeling abit of sad ...><

Then Henry got to be ready for Rome....

It's when Iniesta gets his injury.

The reason our players are getting injured now in the last weeks is because they have been playing 2-3 games a week and training everyday.

ej said...

stupd guardiola !!!

instead of letting some new players mnutes and rest the Key players that where so tired , he proof again how untaented he is in tactic !!!

he was aweful against chelsea no plan b no plan c and we went throw only because god wanted to watch MU Barca , but pep was aweful .


toight instead of letting some players to est bring the sub players , laliga is over anyway as i said rm wont get 9 points so even if barca lose 3 games 10-0 they will be champion but he is poor .


i hope pep next season will be as a Manager but there wil be a Trainer who decide who play or not abecause pep know nothing about tactic he is good motivator thugh

jester[HUN] said...

where did you guys heard / read that iniesta is injured i cannot find anything about it.
Only now i read that he has some mikrosplit or something and he will miss the copa del rey final but the rest will come on monday

jester: Iniesta injury:

ej said...

i heard he wil miss the cup 100%

maybe he wil ms even rome

thank you pep guardiola

next time let your players who are sotired and broen rest , very tred player can get much eaisly injured .


i like him as a persn but beieve me he has no tactic undestanding , doesnt even know when to sub , when to rest players .

messi is in vey bad fom , he is simply too tired fom every wee 2 games but pep let him play and play what about some rest same for:
niesta messi toure xavi alves pique ...

if we played with subs today we would won since hleb bojan caceres guddi are all fresh and want to play


pep yu may have cost us copa del rey and CL thank you

Amar said...

well am a big fan of guardiola. i have to say he kinda screwed up. it was quite obvious that injury prone iniesta should rest along with messi.

plus it was a good opportunity to put caceres and sylvinho to play.

guardiola has pushed the players tio the limit. it was one match too much.

am not even sure we can win the cup let alone CL.

man even wen i play FIFA 09 i substitute iniesta at 70 min mark.lol..

i hope that inista n henry are back for CL.

Anonymous said...

Iniesta won't miss Rome, neither will Henry.

ej said...

anon dont be so sure.

i have the feeling that pep , although the success he wont last long as a barca Coach .

he just have no idea , the worst was in Chelsea game , players didnt shoot in the goal once in 90 min and he didnt try to change anything !!

he has no nfluence in any game , i never saw him dong a tactical change that win barca a game !!!

very poor decision iniesta messi are to tired , what with hleb , why not giving him some minutes , what with bojan ?

just imagine Rijkard didnt give messi any minute before 3 years and let only the big men play.


If i could decide i would put guardiola as a Trainer and get another Coach who know littlebit about tactic !!!

Amar said...

it takes a whole season to build a reputation...but it takes one match to lose it..

it could b a blessing in disguise actually. if iniesta n henry come back for CL then they will be more than fresh....but there is an "if"...

am worried about the cup.

ej said...

i am sure we will lose its 100%


players are too tired and they have only the cup to wn .

pep just throw the cl and cup only for winning laliga 1 week earlier !!

and even this he didnt manage to do .


relly stupid decisions ...

Marc4barca said...

EJ i fully agree with you, there was no need for our first team considering real lost Saturday and he has no tactics. i heard a comment it takes a season to build a career but a game to end it. he may have very well cost us all hope of winning CL and maybe the copa too good news is that bilboa aren't looking too good. it surprises me he went with the rotation policy at the beginning and then play our first team week after week, it shows he is very much inexperience and fell to the pressure, i hope next season he learns that there is a 22 man squad for a reason and too use all of them to full effect and for the love of god would barcelona plz sell guddy and eto.

I find it very interesting the lack of support from barca fans, (am a big one), at the fact that the Guardiola did what he believed to best. if i do remeber correctly last week he was revered as a god for what he was able to do Madrid and now this bitching like little girls. Yes I know it sucks but thats life we get up and do it better next game and let the chips fall were they may.It shows great hypocracy all those people that praise when we win and bitch when we lose a true fan has faith that the team will come through no matter what the odds and thats why i hope for barca and the three title and i also hope to have to stop reading all this complaining from the so called "fans". I'll be sure to not entrust on you were our team is down on their luck.

FCB! said...

I just wanted to say that I have faith that Barcelona can win it all. Yeah we have some injuries and suspensions to deal with, but if our team REALLY wants the titles they will go out on the pitch and play there hardest and come out the winners. But if we lose, guess what? True Barca fans cheer their team on no matter what the outcome is, I'm one of those fans. FCB!

hawk_barca_4_life said...

ya every buddy was saying good 4 him 4 madrid game now we r bitching abt him like girls....lolzz

just rem he was selected to be a manager f a top club ...he won the title win barca b ..so just dont make a fool f him ....be a true barca fan wht u want is to win every game with 5-0 result but thats not possible....the team and every one is doing for us ..to celebrate at home with d fans ...i think we need to support not only in the good times but rough period also look at liverpool there fans they know the title is gone but they still support them and the team is playing 4 them



act i thaught a draw was good considering the fixtures and fatigue

and we need a break 4m those big win this draw will force the team to upgrade there level so they can be in top gear against manu

La Liga said...

if we mess iniesta,henry,dani alvez, abidal, and marquez in the Champions league for me Barca line up could be

Eto'o

Xavi Gudjonson Messi

Keita Busquets

Sylvinho Toure Pique Puyol

Valdez
Its not that bad anyone else thinks its good for CL Final

La Liga said...

-----------------Eto'o---------------

----Xavi-------Gudjonson---Messi-----

--------Keita-----------Busquets-----

Sylvinho----Toure---Pique----Puyol---

noubarca said...

Its not called bitching like girls. Its called passion. We cant fold arms or clap that our coach had made "an honest mistake". Why didnt Hleb, Bojan, Guddy play? With those fresher and hungrier guys, we have a chance of beating Vilareal and yet preserve our guys for the champions league final. Did u see when SAF took R7 off? R7 wasnt happy but the coach knows alot more. Yet there league victory is not as close as ours cos liberpool is close to them than Madrid can ever be to us. Its called resting players and using ur subs. Imagine Rooney didnt start the game yesterday. SAF has been in the job and I hope Pep learns quick. he has a great future ahead of him.

couldn't said it any better noubarca.
