Well I hope that somewhat disturbing video made its point. Barcelona without Messi are literally a team aimlessly running around like a chicken with its head cutoff. Yes, their passing was still on point, but they could never seem to make any type of breakthrough. It was as though they would get close to the box and then look up and go “Aw shit where is that little bastard?” The team is literally a one man show, so obviously Messi was there to help set up the Pedro goal when he came in off the bench.
Another thing that drives me crazy are the dives that this team takes. I know that might sound hypocritical coming from someone who loves Luis Suarez, but come on, this team is in a league of their own when it comes to flopping and at times, it’s pretty hard to watch. I’m praying for a Real vs Barca, Dortmund vs. Bayern draw so that the final won’t be the 109,372,101st El Classico dive fest that it always seems to be.
