Rafinha hauled off for Bartra deservedly.

Meh, Masche did the right thing once Rodrigues got ahead.

It's Alves who is complitely oblivious to the run behind him:

that opportunity he had was ruined by trying to switch his feet.


Again, I hate to bring it up but it makes no sense for us to be THIS thin up front. we literally gave out for free a bunch of young, hungry wingers with experience (Tello, Deulofeu, Bojan, Afellay, Cuenca). Now we have Rafinha out there looking uncomftrable

2nd half starts, Bartra on for Rafinha and then Rakitic sets up Munir with a wonderful lob pass and Munir scores!

@Donuts wrote:I think your kinda wrong, Messi many times tracked back to defend for example the corner that we messed up he fouled a player at half line.

if we compare him to munir or rafinha sure he hasn't done as much as them but then again these players are trying their best with the limited minutes they know they'll get.

Munir's first instinct is pass it to Messi. He has a bright future ahead of him at this club.
that pass was to rafinha from the looks of things.


1) There were more examples of him losing the ball and just walking in response while he lets someone else do the running for him.

2) Which one are you talking about? Either way I was making a tongue in cheek comment, wasn't really being serious.

How good was Munir last season at Barca B? Was he as good and lethal a finisher as Soriano was with the B team the season before he left? Kid looks awesome out there, especially considering he's only 18

btw, apparently we signed Douglas from Sao Paolo for 4.8M and will loan him back to Sao Paolo for the remainder of the season.

apparently everyone who has watched him play say this kid is absolute trash.

Iniesta had Bartra and Messi for his left foot to play, and he passes to Bartra. Dat intelligence.

Kinda harsh there, Messi work rate is fine this game. He did track back or press the defense/ goalie

Mulnir is mixed bag, nervous but got the touch. Think he will come better the more he plays.

Messi has looked motivated since he returned from the World Cup. I am happy with this amount of work from him, now lets see if he can keep it up all season

Not going to lie Rakitić is not a tiki taka player at all. Not sure how Barça will cope with him in midfield when pressed.

Rakitic, Sergi, Rafinha and Iniesta all seem to be better suited to be attacking players. We have yet to find a real Xavi, holding mid type of player. That said, Rakitic adds a different flow to the game with his attacking as oppose to looking to hold possession

Pedro has looked pretty shit to be honest lol

Take Pedro back off. We have looked a step below since Munir left the pitch ffs.

Doesn't matter, who cares if we score 3 or 5, Munir will start the next one with more stamina.
