Did anybody else see the barca v celta vigo game tonight, i honestly think this barca team is better than what guadiola had in his best years there, a truly amazing 6-1 win for barca with suarez getting a hattrick, i’ve never seen a better performance from a team, messy, neymar and suarez are simply un-playable and barca at the very least are gonna win their lge and the CL without a doubt imo. I appreciate what suarez said this week but let’s face it, he ain’t ever leaving barca and why would he, he’ll retire from that club and with any amount of winners medals in his trophy room and i for one wish him many.

I think Suarez has taken to them to another level. It’s taken a while and they tried to play him on the sides and around messi but Luis Enrique moving him to No.9 and Messi and Neymar playing around him has made them move to simply made them irresistible to watch. As you said they are better than Pep’s side because they are much more direct. I hope they win the CL, at the very least they’ll win La Liga. Maybe when Luis is done winning everything he can come back when he’s 31 or 32, heck even at 33 I reckon he’ll still be amazing.

What I find amazing about this Barce side is that you’ve got arguably the best three attackers in the world in Suarez, Messi and Neymar yet there doesn’t seem to be any clash of egos, they’re more interested in winning rather than who scores. That penalty where Messi laid the ball off to Suarez to score (bit cheeky that) is a perfect example. Can you imagine Ronaldo doing that? Me neither.

Apart from a report that said Neymar said the pass was supposed to be for him. I can’t remember where I saw it but it doesn’t sound right, it was Messi setting Suarez up for his hatrick. Unplayable team at the moment. Warrior I will give Suarez the champions League this season but next season is Origi time lol

Real, this is really boring. Whenever will we have a team that can give Barcelona a run for its money? That said, I’m hoping Arsenal can show their true class next week when they take them on. The Gunners HAVE showed they can do it if they get tactics right by beating Bayern 2-0 at home. That was an absolutely amazing game to watch!

I am getting bored of Barcelona. They keep winning without any club giving them a proper! Any other club who let Suarez team up with Messi and Neymar would know that that’s the Champions League out of their hands. Some club should have blocked that move. That said, it IS the world’s best trio and Carra said El Pistolero could be scoring 50 goals before season’s end.
Now I only look at the games that really challenge Barca most of them the CL. I really hope Arsenal really give them a go. They’ve shown they can do it when they beat them 2-0 at Emirates with a defend-and-counter attack game. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN BEAT Barca but your counter attack must be really good (see also Chelsea).
I’m dreamin’ …… WHEN WILL LIVERPOOL EVER TAKE ON BARCA ? AND CAN WE WIN BY CONTROLLING THEIR FRONT THREE?

LFC needs to learn how to handle the likes of West Ham and Watford first before dreaming further..!! 😉

it’s easy to say Barca have those 3 but Madrid have Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema, Rodriguez but the fact is that they don’t play as a team. Barca do and it’s having deadly repercussions.

Oh sorry, no that 2-0 victory was not over Barca but over Pep’s Bayern Munich who gave then a right down 6-1 hiding during the second leg at the Glass Arena. Sorry about that

It was like watching us against Villa lol only kidding I never saw the Barca game but I imagine it was the same. Only our defending was better. 😆

I follow Barca at times, besides the MSN, you must not forget how the entire team plays, there is hardly any bad touches or bad passes, tikki taaka style of play is always at the peak no matter who they are playing against, more than half of the team can read the game better than the opposition, the only way to beat them is to match their standards and beat them using counter attack…

Yes….very good Sandiphulse!

That’s why they are known as the dream team, we can but dream about being like them. But at least we can say we helped Louis on his way up there .

Why is it? Barca win 6-1 and Barca are brilliant, we win 6-0 and Villa are mince.

lol really dude? really?! least I not point out that they beat their nearest title rivals comprehensively Real 4-0 and also Athletico madrid 2-1. This is the 3rd time they hit 6 past a team in a game and have a GD of 44, scoring 62 goals in 23 games! We’ve scored 38 and conceded twice as many as them (36 vs 18)! Celta are 8th on their log with 35 points, we all know where Villa are…

Yes really Man city were classed as our rivals we put 4 past them that is twice we have put 6 past a team this season. They have had their 3 top players fit for the best part of their season we have had no centre backs and no strikers for most of the season. Lol I was only kidding comparing us to Barca btw, it was just a lovely coincidence. Haha.

Well maybe a fully fit front 3 of Coutinho, Sturridge and Firmino can Barca’s defense problems but with our defense and keeper, I’m afraid it’s gonna be a scoreline something to the tune of 8-4 or something like that.

Real, c’mon are you serious?….DB99, they put 6 past a team 3 times…?Maybe that’s a record we can try to beat or equal as we have Southampton 6-1 and Villa 6-0.
That said, I would like to see what our lineup against Villa can do any harm against Barca except I’d put Teixera instead of Hendo with a fit Sturridge. That’d be a good game!

I think that was just in the league. I’m sure they tonked Roma in the CL for 5 or 6 as well.

Ezanih of course I’m not being serious, I did say at the end of my post I was joking. Barca are world class at the moment, but make no mistake we’ll be back.

Real, I like looking at Barca as a challenge to us. If they are the best team in the world, then I relish we play against them so that we can beat them. That’s why we must qualify for the CL (and I’m going to hate it if we just finish 5th this season – just off. I mean its alright if we finished 7th or lower – that is really way off the CL but finish 5th only one ranking off the CL? Hope not!) Otherwise we have to win the Europa to qualify for the CL !!! grrr…can we do that? (I prefer the Europa route really because its much harder than a top 4 PL spot and shows we are really good) That said….we’ll put 2 players on Suarez and 2 players on Messi and cut out Barca! How on earth do they win the ball back everytime they lose possession? Its as if the players know where to be !!! We at Liverpool have got to learn that art from them…including seldom misplacing passes!! That said … I’m relishing the Arsenal – Barca CL encounter. **** have showed it can be done (and Chelsea too) so… Read more »

Other than Suarez hitting the woodwork and just shooting/heading wide a couple times in this game ala his first season here, they’ve been pretty comfortable vs Arsenal.
