    Come on Michu, score another goal so Spurs are held to only one point! (And Arsenal can move up)

    Who really likes JT apart from die hard Chelsea supporters????

    And Ashley Cole?

    Even my Chelsea mates hate his guts.

    Sirigu came out for that like a fat kid that just noticed an "all you can eat"-sign. About as graceful as well. Idiot.

    Well Barca will be pissed at letting that happen, but two away goals should provide some consulation.

    How Ibra's goal stood I have no idea, but such is the game at times. We can only imagine if Messi had been on in the second half.

    Back to Camp Nou to see PSG's run end.

    As for Juve....crap, the dream is one leg in the grave I fear. A Barca type comeback is needed and there is a reason it has only happened once.

    I'm a PSG fan but I have huge respect for Barcelona...

    All their antics was a bit difficult to watch tonight..

    When you're the best team in the world ,you do not need that kind of shit to win games...

    Alves,Busquets,Mascherano ...

    What was that shit about???

    I'm fed up with teams expecting the game to stop everytime someone is on the floor...

    If a player's life is in danger, yes....

    When you see the same guy getting up and running like a lunatic , it makes my blood boil..

    100% in agreement, I hate that about the game and Barca does too much of it - and I support Barca, which is probably why I hate it so much.

    Barça threatened, but in all reality looked toothless in the second half without Messi.

    Bayern look like the team to beat right now, after their slaughtering of Hannover this weekend and hitting Juve for two.

    Did they say if Messi was out for the next match?

    Talk of three weeks, which probably means he'll play again this weekend. Masch is out for six weeks, so it's either Song or Bartra in defense.

    Which players are suspended?

    PSG were the better side and squandered 4 great chances. OMG Ibra scored a goal.

    Barca looked as bad as they did v Milan. PSG still needs a goal, which I don't see them getting. Unfortunately we'll be seeing more sideways/backwards play in the next round. And someone please give them an Oscar for all the acting.

    had to avoid thread as i was watching later

    iiiibraaaibrahimovic :slayer:
    (don't care that he was offiside)

    valdes and cesc suck. and i really can't stand mascerano.

    i know everyone will like to pin this on barca's messi-dependence but i feel psg were applying a lot of pressure even in the first half and cesc replacing lio just galvanized the parisians even more.
    they were always playing to attack, rarely do you see teams lineup with two strikers vs barca when they are relying on the counter, but they were always hoping for either set plays (major barca weakness) or the outlet pass with two options rather than just one.

    beckham had a surprisingly ok first half. the strategy worked for his role as a deep-lying outlet passer when they were just trying to defend and beat barca on the counter, he made a handful of nice long-rangers. good for him.

    am still not sure if paris can advance, i mean look what milan did in first leg versus second. the away goals may come into play, hopefully messi is ok.

    Assuming Messi is out, and that Barça's defense is truly ravaged, I can see PSG going through. They just need one and to lock up shop.

    All the millions managers get and someone FINALLY decides to play the strait ball over the top down the center. It worked over and over. All you have to do against Barca is chuck a few taller guys up front and toss them balls. Bypass the midfield and you'll beat them.
