CL Last 16

Post by Liam on Tue 18 Feb 2014, 1:01 pm

First topic message reminder :

Some cracking games this week, Barca/City and Bayern/Arsenal. Can't see past Bayern and Barca wins. Pellegrini has said he'll attack Barca and I say do so at your peril. This may not be the Barca side from 2010-2012 but its still a very very good side with players in form currently, namely Fabregas, Sanchez and with a returning Messi back in the goals. There's a chance that if they go in with two strikers that they could get torn to pieces. I think against Barca you have to play a 5 man midfield. They keep the ball too well and will just pass their way through you.

Alves & Negredo booked so far.

Usual tippy tappy from Barca don't look threatening though.

1-0 PSG to those that care

City look absolutely rock solid at the back (as I type that Kolarov nearly kills a guy).

He's not as bad as he's made out to be but he's pretty poor compared to the goalkeepers at other top clubs.

Is there a worse team to play 11 on 10 than Barca, I can't think of one.

I just saw the replay and it was just outside the box by inches, in fairness to the ref it was a bang bang play and we are talking inches out the box. My initial reaction was penalty. Either way the red was justified and Barca would most likely win with 11 on 10 either way.

No doubt it was red but it wasn't a penalty ud fancy your chances better at a FK on the edge hard to get ball up and down then a pen.. Id fancy a defensive movement against Barca if stayed at 0-0 from the FK.

I disagree, I think he is a very good keeper. I would take him over Joe Hart. Nasri should have done better with that half chance.

Agreed. It is a bit harsh on City. It seems their luck with the calls ran out on that one.

Game of opinions. I'd take Chesney, Cech, Hart, De Gea, Lloris over him every day of the week.

Chelsea did OK the last time they went down to ten men against Barcelona Whistle

Too many of the Man City players are lazy at winning the ball back. Case in point, that half chance for Nasri, who after having his shot block sort of strolls back, and allows Barca to play a simple one-two down his side to get out of danger. Negredo equally culpable after a cross goes just over his head, he doesn't even make a move to pressure the defender who picks up the ball near his corner flag and is allowed a simple route out.

This is really a disappointing performance from Man City, Barca look there for the taking but haven't been pressured enough.

IMO this result is on Pellegrini. He had to pick between Demichelis and Lescott and made the wrong choice.

I agree MFC, even before they were down to 10 men Barca looked to be bossing the match and I don't mean just in possession terms. As much as I loathe Jose he does get his teams playing hard when they don't have the ball. Although in fairness City haven't done that bad since going down to 10. AT 1-0 they still got a chance in this tie.

This was so obvious. Knew Barca would hammer them tonight, even if the scoreline doesn't suggest that. Dominated possession, like usual, bossed the game, like usual, and won the game, like usual. Everyone hyped up City, look what happened...

Agree with everyone on that list except Hart, I think Hart in a couple of years maybe better than Victor Valdes. Lets remember that Valdes doesn't exactly have the greatest pair of Center Halves in front of him, and his fullbacks basically play like wingers. Pique is having a terrible year this year by his standards.

I was just thinking that. Surely he must be injured/suspended, otherwise you'd definitely start him over either of those two?

Really unprofessional by City to not lock up shop with 10 men in the 90th minute. At 1-0 at home you are not out of it, at 2-0 this tie is pretty much dead. What is Clichy doing?
