Isn't Messi done for the year? lol
EDIT: As if missing Messi and Ronaldinho for the Man U clash isn't enough, Puyol will be out for the first leg with his yellow cards.
Ronaldinho is the one done for the year, Messi is predicted to be back by next week.
Barcelona will need Messi if they have a chance of beating man united. Defence has been solid thanks to puyol, midfield has been doing its job with the posession game but the finishing third is lack lustre.
Henry is a waste of money, time and space. He pretty much dives around everyday.
Eto'o has lost his spark because Rijkaard had started him on the right for quite a couple of games which didnt really work out for him.
Bojan is money. Gio is showing quality too.
The scoreline would have been really different today if instead of Henry, Rijkaard had started Gio.
Quality over fizzed out superstars anyday. Barcelona are starting to behave like los galacticos with many super egos and stars thinking they are the shit.
Missing Puyol for the first game scares me though. I am not afraid of Milito messing up but i fear Thuram is much too slow for man united. He has the brains and the intelligence to defend efficiently but once he is beaten its over. Unless ofcourse, Marquez can recover in time but even then no one can replace the captain. He is the only consistent performer on the team.
Luckily the fastest player on the team will be the one marking CRonaldo but he has to be careful. He seems to be losing focus recently.
i think barca could be in trouble for the first leg. no puyol. that will be a big miss i could see man u going forward in numbers and getting at milito and thuram (is marquez fit right now cos if he is he'll be in there)
im 100% sure bojan will not start through the middle eto'o will or maybe henry will. The kids somthing else but he wouldnt stand a chance against rio and vidic
i doubt messi will be back for the first leg although i think he might. the barca medical staff have a bad habit of sending players back into full training and games very early so if he plays i wouldnt be surprised if he got hury
anyway down the right hand side (apart from messi) i dont think barca have anyone that can hurt man u with evra at right back so they will have to go down the left (with henry i think) thats where there best chance of scoring comes from
its clear henry is past his best but he's clearly unhappy right know but he's still capable of being one of the best players at the club. rijkaard NEEDS to leave if henry is ever going to settle because barca's style doesnt suit him and his pace. i think if barca play to henrys needs he will be more effective than eto'o
