Madrid would be great, the Chelsea fans will give JM a rousing reception, it will be emotional...

In their defence they had three players in the penalty arc at times.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Has Messi stopped crying yet?
I HATE Chelsea but hate Barca more, maybe the media will stop making a mess in their trousers whenever they mention them now and the true No1 player in the world will be crowned thus next year!

I think Bayern can pull it off. I hope so anyway because they would have been my first choice of the semi finalists.

+1 Praying for a finale without Real or Barca.
One more to go and yes indeed Bayern can pull it off.

Go FCB!

well i knew messi was just mediocre at taking PKs but he's 76%, 20 in 7 missed. Contrast that with CR (as every stat inevitably is): 23 in, 1missed, 96% lethal

i hope bayern does it, but i have a bad feeling it'll be Jose vs on of his successors. Can abramovic finally have the last laugh ?

Can't help but use the typical quote that comes from the Barca's "fans."

"There's justice in football."

lololol

this, and also, what was on display recently sorta was the plan B

playing 3 in the back
abidal not there (he's massive tactically, keeps the shape, doesnt get lost wondering forward like adriano, solid defender)
no predatory striker (villa has been out since the winter broken leg)
iniesta hsan't been the same since last year , quite sluggish
cesc drop in form
xavi has been carrying an achilles injury for over a year last season he was being given injections to continue playing
no Pique for 2 games, then he comes on but gets concussion early on (he was taken to hospital today)
tello is not very "barca-like" in that he has 0 assists, he is a bit like walcott.
messi very quiet last 3 games

not excusing barca's performances, but just keep in mind this hasn't been Pep's plan from the get-go. they'll be back next season assuming guardiola extends his contract. if not there are a few, namely Basiela who is pep's idol and mentor doing his thing at bilbao

I watched the second half at work. I still have no clue how Torres broke out. With the exception of Messi shooting at the woodwork, Barcelona were taking their jolly sweet time to get that goal in the second half.

Let´s hope  bielsa´s Bilbao does the same in the Copa del Rey final. Sin el pan y sin la torta se quedaron!!!
