I just clarified that: it was too easy last night. They looked good, but it was more because of Milan than themselves, IMO. Again, when they face a tough opponent they play backwards and sideways... then it gets really boring to watch.

That Messi footwork for the first goal was world class, but the lead up was training ground stuff.

I just have a tough time when people blame Barca for playing boring, when others park the bus. What are they supposed to do to entertain you when the opposing team is putting 10 men in the box. They're going to pass around and hope for an opening. Not do dumb passes and give the ball away. The boredom you suffer from this is much more the opposing team's fault.

When a team is winning ,it will become boring watching them after a few years ...

It's humane nature to want more and being disappointed when reality hits home.

Valiant effort by Arsenal, but to no avail. Depending on the draw, feeling a Barça/Bayern final at this point.

I still claim Juve as the dark horse in all of this. Best goalkeeper + defence in the entire tournament. A decent draw for them (ie not Bayern -> Real -> Barca or whatever) and they could win it.

That's boring stuff too. Mou's Chelsea squads were a great insomnia cure, but effective = Barca... effective. People that find tikki taki attractive to watch love 5 hours of foreplay. Shit.... 20 mins, shove it in, 10 mins of pump.... bedtime. Now there is some good football.

You believe its entertaining. '94 Colombia w/ Valderama was heralded as well. Sorry but 340 midfield passes before a strike is just masturbation.

And I call total, absolute bullshit. Defenses will ALWAYS sit back when given time to track back. You're dead wrong. You never seen a stretched game with Barca and stretched games are often most entertaining football. They don't allow it because they waste time building completion %'s in midfield while the educated football fans watch. Xavi reminds me of Hair Band '80's guitarists that just have to get a solo in every song. Anyone else notice how his style stymies runs to the point that forwards just trot around and wait?

NOT TRUE.

Arsenal's 2002 record winning streak w/ Bergkamp and Viera was the best football I've ever seen. Better than '94 Brazil, '98 France, '07/8 Man U, '86 Argentina, '04 Portugal, '90 Cameroon, '06 Barca and 2013 Borussia Dortmund (best team in the world to watch right now).

The only team I have ever seen as pleasant to watch as Arsenal were

Arsenal was great to watch with Henry,Pires,Vieira,Bergkamp and others...

What I meant is long term success in most cases is bringing a neutral watcher's fatigue..

Take Spain ,BARCA, ManU and so many others..

Ya, when the same team wins every year it gets boring, even for the players and fans.

To be exciting, you need to lose. F1 has the same problem, during the Schumacher domination years it was some boring ass shit.

Barca's game is great to watch but after a few games ,it is becoming tiresome...

It is the same problem with ManU winning all the time even when playing rubbish...

In reality ,no team can have that much success without being a great team..

Efficiency is one thing to appreciate , enjoying watching it is a different matter..

Exactly. What fun is it to watch a team dominate possession and sit there dinking the ball between each other in midfield ad nauseum?
