I can see us starting:
-----------Bravo
alves--Pique---Masch--Alba
----------Buscuit
------Rakitic---Rafinha
---Pedro---Messi----Neymar

we have a game upcming midweek against PSG so i can see us resting Mathieu, Iniesta, and Suarez whom played wednesday in copa de rey.

but honestly with lucho's inconsistency i cannot really imagine who will start.

my bad my memory is serving my horrible...
but anyways this match is so disguisting..
messi really should leave, everyone just stands still ball watching hoping to get carried by the guy..

suarez is so invisible and someone please explain to me why xavi is receiving more passes in the box FROM messi rather then the other way around...

Not only Xavi, i guess Xavi, Rakitic and Alves all are recieving more.... Also was annoyed with some players lack of movement in mid. we just waiting for passes. still some good movement and through balls from messi that should have been in.
btw, Messi always finding Alba fantasticly not in this game i saw few occasions where alba come in one on one. any decent player should atleast put few of them in.

we are extremely lucky to escape with those ferocious counters that somehow did not end in the net.

Espanyol are always tough to beat tbh

I think your problem is the right wing, I think Messi is supposed to be there but he drifts center and Alves is left there on his own with Rakitic sometimes supporting him. If Messi has a free role and your coach sets you up to play through the wings then he should put somebody else there because it makes your attack abit loopsided with everyone always playing cross field balls to Alba/Neymar

Suarez is being crowded too so he isn't seeing much of the ball and the times he does see the ball, poor touches have let him down

Whenever Espanyol attack there is no coordinations between Pique and Marcherano. I mean on their last attack Pique was so far back he basically invited Sanchez to just run in full velocity not worrying about an offside trap

Dr Jeckll and Miss Hyde this team.

First half and 2nd half, two different teams out there.

Notice Suarez came off and immediately we scored 2 goals

And kudos to Pedro, that pass to Messi's hat trick goal was amazing

and lastly, I wanted to add that I'm not shocked Messi scored a hat trick after Ronaldo got a gifted hat trick yesterday

Our tactics are shit and we're only going to win games based on individual efforts.
lucho apparently yelled at half time probably why our team kicked it up a gear second half.

well.. no worries messi started off covering all the defects in attack..
this season he is covering the midfield + attack...
next season he'll just cover the whole damn field.

Same old story for the past 2-3 years, Messi will saves us, but for how long before we crash.

So where are Messi haters? I dont see them when messi scores hat tricks. Damn 3 hat tricks and 3 records in last 4 games

Also Pedro is one of the best Barca players. I'd say top 3 barca player. His passing and scoring ability is underrated. We only see his work rate. But he would be the star of any team in the world

He fits our system better than Suarez, maybe. But once Suarez (and more importantly Luis Enrique) figure out how to implement Suarez into our system he is going to be lethal (he already is, just isn't finishing)

Dont get the doom regarding the first half.I thought we played well.Circulated the ball well and at a nice tempo.Created a few chances which werent converted.Some nice combinations with just the final pass lacking.Espanyol's goal came from a Busquets error.
Overall very pleased with the performance in both halves.
