One thing has become clear: We definitely DON'T need another DM or CB. We definitely NEED a creative head if Iniesta and Messi are missing. Therefore get Cesc. If not, let's save the money. Then promote Dos Santos because Hleb as a Backup for Iniesta has been loaned

considering tonight's squad, really good match though some mistake made.
bojan was great at 1st half,pedro scored golasso.
i can't wait messi,ibra,iniesta...on the pitch.

skanjos said...

not a good game by the lads,we had 2 posts thought but generaly we were lacking ball possetion,sth that is really crucial to barca's style.the wingers should had helped the midfield more but i think keita was the missing link in this game,he wasnt on the field today.

anyway good result,the next game is just typical with the stars having returned and in camp nou.

The game shows our lack of squad depth. It is non-existant. One forward, one midfielder and one defender is really needed, but I don't think we will get any, and just play 17 year olds instead.

This game has showed how we need some players like Cesc or Moutinho, and Hulk. Pedro and Bojan were good, but they are not good solution for big games if someone of key players not on the pitch.

Mido said...

Hahaha abidal was too weak!!! Wonder why pep didn't give playtime to maxwell!! Pedro was awesome in second half and bojan in first half! keita wasn't that great either! We need more players: a cb and a dm. Cesc, ribery, arshavin, evra and bruno alves for next year :-D

And we need Houdini to get all of them

keita was great! Are you blind?

xaviniesta said...

i agree, abidal was a mess :( i wanna see maxwell next time. pedro was really good :)

hieifcb said...

shit! i predicted Maxwell in place of Abidal.. otherwise i would have got one point!

abidal was rock solid. Lost the ball a couple of times, but apart from that, he was great. A wall.

Letho said...

I didnt think bojan played that good of a game: he runs too much with the ball. He tries to take on 2-3 defenders which doesnt work, he needs to pass the ball much quicker!

OMG! these glory hunters just don't stop, wat do they expect the team to do?? score 6-7 goals every game or wat?? get a life u glory hunters this is not FIFA or some fantasy game...

Abidal was a rock today and so was Keita and both Bojan(1st half) and Pedro(2nd half) were very good... not every one is a messi for gods sake, we missed 3 of the top 5 players in the world today and still played brilliantly had it not been for a sad own goal(or deflected as u might call it) and a long list of missed chances and shots which unluckily hit the post(both bojan and alves) we would have won it 5-0 or 6-0...

So stop being pessimistic and for gods sake be optimistic for once in ur life u GLORY HUNTERS! im sick of u guys...

So... do we really need to spend like Real Madrid? No! It was far from perfect- but with pppl missing we still won. Not every game will end with 5:0. With Ibra, messi and Iniesta out- that was good enough for me. We probably need 1 or 2 more players. NOTHING MORE! Pedro just showed why it IS worth it to give those younger players a chance. Now- did Hleb have one single game as good as this Pedro's one on the right wing? I thought so...

Of course we are still gonne getr some kids here who played Football Manager one time too many saying that we need to spend every single penny on some Hulks or sth... yeah, whatever... I just hope the new president will not want to appeal to those kind of fans...

well said! so true.
annoy from another annoy.
we missed messi,iniesta,zlatan,marquez(milito) and we won at San mames!
stop too much complainning guyz.

i bet even if we had won this game 5-0 or 6-0 those bosnian, mido, skanjos and those other anony's would still be complaining that this games shows why we need more signings, lol...

wake said...

did not see much of the game, but the outside shooting looks very good especially from some of the young players... definitely an added dimension since barca is known for passing into the net.. I expect this threat to increase even more with the addition of ibra

Anurag said...

couldn't have seen the game, but the result is pleasing. we beat a solid, committed team in their home ground without 3 important attacking players. what more can i want...

p.f.t said...

the team played very well n assuming messi, iniesta, ibra has injury or not wont d others play

skanjos said...

so at 70-80th minute the ball possetion was 53% barca and 47% atletic, and 4 shots on target for us 2 for atletic.....did we watch a different game?just because we won 1-2 and had 2 posts doesnt mean we had a good game.we didnt move the ball well ,we werent a threat infront,the only good thing in this match was our defence.and no i dont say this in order to get more signings or because i am a pessimist,i rated the match m8,my oppinion ,dont like it write yours and @%$@^%&^&*....

we need more squad depth ,even if you are bling you can see that....

Abidal sucks big time . What a waste of roaster space !!

Abidal is a rhythem killer and a total dumb-ass !!

SJP said...

some people seem to just pick a player to criticise, what was so bad about what abidal did? i thought he was solid, even went forward well. to be fair the whole team seemed a bit below par but i was glad how they came out after the half time break, pep obviously had good effect on them, pedro was great.

Rivaldo said...

I agree with Skanjos guys. WE DEFINITELY need another controller in midfield alongside Xavi and iniesta in our squad (not neccessary on the field at the same time but maybe it could work in a match or two). Plus i really thought we were going to be with two prime strikers this season (I Eto'o had stayed we would've still be after Villa) I think we need either a good winger/striker or another striker. I'm all for Bojan improving but not at the cost of a game. That being said i believe in him to an extent but in general our team needs to be more CLINICAL...from last year. Yes, despite all those goals. Guardiola still needs to talk to his defense tho. And it's either we keep Henrique and he improves here or we're getting someone.
I'm out...BARCA starts with a win!!!!!

Rivaldo said...

*If Eto'o.....
and when I say i believe in Bojan to some extent i mean i believe he can play but in a need goal situation i don't like the option if Ibra isn't going to be there....CLARIFICATION!!LOL

~~~~ENJOY~~~~
