Ballon d or stats February,

Messi: 7 games,8 goals,4 assists.
Ronaldo:4 games,2 goals,2 assists
And robben:7 games,7 goals,4 assists

When pep was taking over,everybody thought robben days at bayern were numbered,but under pep, he turned to be one of world best from world class player and most importantly,unselfish player.This year messi could face a real test from robben for ballon d or..
I think Suarez will be key to our title hopes this year, he has such desire to win trophies and such passion. With Liverpool last year he stepped up and almost brought them the premiership, I think today he proved he can step when messi and neymar arent on fire. As for rakitic, the guy is such a classy player, his range of passing and vision is on another level.

2 assists and 3 goals in the last two matches (4days)? wow he is a flop....
+4
He's averaged a goal/assist per game in the last 10 games. And it's his first season and he's still needs a little bit of time to get the ball rolling. Once he starts finishing his chances, he will be unstoppable.
As much as Messi has rescued Barca every game, today he was just not giving his 100%. Several times he was just not bothering to make a run. Towards the end when Neymar made a run and made a bicycle kick cross, Messi was walking at the edge of the box instead of rushing in much earlier. By the time he started off running to meet the cross the defender covered him and he shot wide. Twice towards the end he just completely missed a pass. He always gives us his best but I cannot say that about him today.

Neymar is slowly becoming toothless. He tries the same dribble again and again. He holds on to the ball for way too long instead of what he was doing early in the season. Last season he had a good start and slowed down in the 2nd half of the season. I hope it isn't repeating again. We can't have the ghost of Cesc linger around at Barca anymore.

Suarez and Rakitic were outstanding today. Rakitic was just bossing around like nobody's business. He was doing the same vs City. Its good to see him play like he really can. Suarez is looking more confident now.

Bartra and Mathieu were just not partnering each other well. Mathieu has been off his usual game after his injury.

Xavi's positioning was messing up our defense. I'm not sure why he was running up the field to score especially when Rakitic was doing a great job offensively. To allow a team like Granada to over run your midfield is truly embarrassing. Because of Xavi, Mascherano was all over the place.

We play Villareal in our next game. I'm sure Pique and Mascherano will partner in defense with Iniesta back along with Rakitic and Busi. Neymar needs to step up to the plate and stop making reactionary tackles. We are in a decent position from the 1st leg. Villareal need to come out and score so they can't really park the bus. If they play an open attacking game it will be easier for MSN to find a way.

By the way, we haven't conceded a goal from an aerial cross or set piece for a while now but we look much more awful now defending crosses than we did 3 months ago.

I'm still scratching my head over our midfield. Notice how when we got the ball we were playing 3-4-3 with Masche, Mathieu and Bartra at the back. Alba and Alves out wide and Xavi and Rakitic as AM. Our defenders had no one to pass to except go out wide to our full backs.

Was this Lucho's plan so Granada comes out and attacks us? As soon as Rafinha came on, we started playing well because he was doing what our midfielders couldn't do. And that's to drop, pick the ball up and start the play.
the pitch is awful in short .
I agree with everything being said but I also justify it with the pitch being awful. Neymar's form lately is a bit worrisome tho..
Ahh, yes. The Messi conundrum. He probably should have been rested so that he could be 100% for the CDR match against Villareal. But we all know what happened last time Lucho rotated Messi. So what does Lucho do? Play Messi in every single match for the rest of the season? I don't think that is wise considering how burnt out Messi was by the end of last season, which showed in the World Cup.
I see Granada fans booing messi towards end n I didn surprised..
Alfrodo, that is the problem. If Lucho rests Messi, everybody calls for his head. If he plays him everyday, Messi won't be as sharp. But I think we needed Messi today. If we manage to score first in Villarreal then Messi can get subbed off at half time.
Suarez is getting better by the day. I am very happy we got him. Unselfish, and he is a game changer
rakitic MOTM easy
+6
Messi's finishing has been off today
+4
thats because i have him in dreamfooty. everytime i choose either messi or ronaldo, their form drops. so i suggest you pay me some money so i can be pro member in this site and change him.
+1
Is there a bet where they'll win 3-1??!
He who is selfless deserves a selfless gift! I'm glad Suarez recognizes that! I Salute you Suarez. Mad Respect...
+3
I'll have to see the replay but technically messi was offside for his goal.
A man was behind him,so which means it should be two men behind if goal keeper up in the box?
The keeper's shoulder was actually level. Come on guys this is simple. The keeper's shoulder is a body part a player can touch the ball with. The goal was good.
he was..... but its very very close so you could understand why the ref missed it
I saw it and it was very close but definitely offside. By offside rules, he was between the last and 2nd last defender (goal keeper) which means it was offside. But since the goal keeper was rushing towards the goal it would be difficult to figure out if the gk somehow played him onside. In such cases refs usually make a mistake because the gk isn't the last defender and that confuses everybody.
