Thread: Tottenham vs Barcelona

    Re: Tottenham vs Barcelona

    I would play either Murphy or Reid to run down the middle at their defence which looks very shaky.

    In was an impossible job to replace their midfield. When they left, so did the Champions League trophies.

    Messi supreme. Any chance of lending him to us for a few games?

    Who said he couldn't , no one doubts he's a great , strange he doesn't deliver on the international stage , and it would be nice to see him in another league , playing week in and out competitively dealing with the rigours of the Premiership .

    65 goals in 128 games isnít too shabby on the international stage.

    Chris Wood can get double figures in the premier league. I think messi would do ok.

    Spurs fan in work was telling me last week he had doubts Messi would be as good in the Premier league. This morning he changed his mind.

    Not sure where people get these ideas from. Like the old could he do it on a wet cold Tuesday night in Stoke? Eh ye but he'd prefer Barcelona.

    I hate Busquets' theatrics but he's so good. He hardly ever gives the ball away.

    Messi last night was on another level, wonder if Barca will let him stay at Wembley for a few days

    Exactly. Add to that a gruelling copa del rey cup which is two legs til the final and for some bizarre reason Valverde opted to play Messi throughout.

    Why he didn't perform in the world cup was down to a number of reasons I believe.

    Firstly Valverde made him play in almost every game last season because not only did they want the double but they were also having an invincible season until the last but one game when Valverde decided to rest Messi altogether and they lost!

    Secondly I think the pressure of the Maradona factor weighed heavy on him.

    Thirdly Argentina were once again mismanaged to the point where it was almost criminal.
    When you see teams like Denmark and even Iran realising that if you set up compact and be hard to beat then you have a chance, and Sampaoli with the best player in the world in his team failing to understand this it beggars belief.

    Finally when are people gonna stop buying the Richard Scudamore and sky tv pedalled myth that the premier league is the best.

    Barcelona have lost to Leganes, and drawn at home to Bilbao amd Girona already this season yet they still sit above the both Madrid clubs so that should tell you how competitive the league is!
