Not too shabby stats from our attackers thus far:
https://twitter.com/BarcaStat/status/560635214322761728/photo/1

I want to give a shout out to Pedro. It takes a certain amount of humility to accept that you are playing second fiddle to MSN and still be content to play hard the chances he gets. Very respectable professional. He's not the most talented player but he sure works his tail off.
Pedro deserves a lot of respect and in my opinion, he's good enough to start for a top class team. He would do very well in Arsenal, for example.

Just imagine what you, as a player, would have if your club had Messi, Eto, Ibra, Henry, Neymar, Villa, Suarez, etc., as part of your attack and you knew you had to compete with them.
Another one joins the club !!!!!

The second son of Pique and his girlfriend Shakira has been born in Barcelona tonight. Their first son Milan was born two years ago. [md]

Rome !!!!!!!!

Cuadrado's transfer to cfc will be completed within the next 48 hours. How many wingers does mourinho need?
Salah going the other way, Schürrle rumoured on his way out. That leaves us with Hazard. Willian is a CAM playing RW. The rest of our midfield options are Cesc, Oscar, Matic, Ramires, Mikel, Ake, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, none of whom are wingers. Jeremy Boga is also on the squad list for the PL, but not the CL. So in truth we are short on wingers. RW is our weakest position in attack. Jose is trying to strengthen the weakest spot and keep the books balanced. All us CFC fans are elated that all this is happening. Cuadrado isn't cup tied like Reus and Douglas Costa. Best possible move we could make IMO.
+5
I'm relieved someone else is getting him. I never liked the idea of him coming here to play RB.
WIllian is a winger...always has been... since his time in corinthians
+3
^ Did he play on the left or right wing? because at Chelsea, he seems to have problems at RW. He plays better centrally.

Alfrodo, i never understood that rumour because Barca play 4 at the back. He's the type that plays RWB in 3 defence formation, not 4 imo.
+1
Considering the way Alba and Alves play sometimes, Cuadrado isn't all that far off Theo :P
+2
@theo

he has always played on the left...

its interesting actually cause once Willian became the main attraction in Shakhtar he was given the liberty of leaving his position more than often which gave him more goals and assists... he's always been good cutting into his right...however, willian was never really the player with the most freedom in Shakhtar... it was mkhitaryan... despite being a CAM their coach noticed Miki had a lot of goals in him... more than anyone else in the squad... so miki was pretty much like messi.. he played wherever he wanted but many times he was also a false 9... and as a result, he was their top goal scorer for 2 seasons in a row i believe, with willian coming second in stats.

eventually they managed to fit Luiz Adriano, Miki, Willian, Dougals Costa and Alex Texeira in the same squad in attack with Fernandinho right behind them.... they had an amazing squad... it was with this team they knocked chelsea out on group stages and nearly topped Juve for the group.

I do miss seeing Willian play on the left side... he is easily one of Europe's best wingers... but for him to play in his position he will have to somehow bench Hazard... and that not gonna happen... bad for him in both Chelsea and Brazil cause Neymar isn't gonna be pulled outta the left neither.... so basically he plays for 2 different squads and both have two of the best growing talents in the world playing directly in his position
+1
@DaGaza

where exactly does he fall in this category of 'easily one of Europe's best wingers'? Because I can think of 10 players better than him
Neymar is making everything right now. I love this kid. My only concern is Suarez... I wish he got on the scoresheet too. I hope he will score in future and not have the same fate like Alexis Sanchez.
+1
Apart from goals , i think Suarez have already established himself as vital part of the squad , unfortunate :'( Sanchez took almost a season and half to achieve that status .
“He’s got an odd way of playing, particularly when he’s winning,” the former Spain Under-21 man told the media.

“He’s always making gestures on the field, especially when he’s in front. Nobody likes to lose and these things irritate you.”

Gabi about neymar

though i dont like neymar mannerism on field,i would say after all these years,atleti players trying to get into opposition's skin and done it effectively ,but finally someone else got into atleti players skin,lol.

See,tasting your own medicine isnt that tasty,if anyone have doubt,ask Gabi :)
+1
its such a shame w/e happened, it was shaping up to be a fantastic game, although i'll admit i was really impressed with Barca's counters and surprised with how open Atleti were

also, i don't know about you guys but i loved Arda's boot throw (lmao he needs better aim), how he got away with that i don't know but you guys think he'll be investigated by the Spanish FA? great game though. Neymar>Bale for me (although i feel Ronaldo holds back Bale)
+1
Cani : “With the way Neymar is playing - doing nutmegs, talking - he will have a problem one day."

It's ironic because Atletico's best quality is to get under the opposition's skin.
+1
^ lol,those butthurts didn't realise their one day was yesterday.

This is like mourincho talking about fair play football..
Yesterday after messi was fouled by Athleti player , Athleti fans chanted “another, another”

Barcelona fans applauded them for winning the league , even after a legit goal which was ruled offside which would have seen us lifting that laliga trophy .
+2
Knockout competitions can bring out the best in people and the worst.
+1
They were frustrated because they thought their tactics would effective against like forever,They became crazy because they realized they lost the grip against us.Sore losers,lol.

But still i love how they make noise whole 90 minutes,the support they been giving to their players is phenomenal..
+1
I like Atleti as a team... but I think fans don't have to do with the teams attitude. What I loved is that we kept a cool mind and done our work. Let the final come we're ready!
+2
I don't get it, it's ok if Atletico resort to such tactics, but not ok for Madrid or Chelsea (I think it was)? Pick one man, you either like it or you don't. After Stoke City, I guess I don't like such thuggish teams after all.
+5
I only support their style when they play Real Madrid or any English teams. I wanna see them cry muhahaha
+1
Thought it was very close and quiet possibly onside in real time. Here's Neymar's incorrectly ruled offside goal:

https://vid.me/AqM1
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B8eNgP3CcAINRLA.jpg:large
That pass though. Ter just amazes me with his feet.
I love his distribution , but TBH i'm bit disappointed with few of the goals he conceded , it not like he was at fault but i was expecting bit more from him , i was expecting him to pull few courtios and Da gea like saves , some blinders . Although he saves that one bullet of shoot yesterday .

Perhaps with regular start and more shots to face , he will pull that saves .
+1
Completely agree Malik. I really want to see him give us a proper show of his skills, but like you said it will come in time.

That was such a good counter attack goal by Neymar, unfortunate to have a bit of bad luck there.
He is young and has so much space to improve... I see in him the number 1 of Germany!
@Aliko , Neure is only 28 , i think it will take little bit time before ter stegen becomes German Number 1
Why was Gabi sent off? Here his account of what happened:

Gabi explained what happened. "My words were: 'Jesus, it was a penalty and send off and he told me, 'you’re out'." That has been my lack of respect towards him. I think he should have much more personality and more dialogue with the player. There were 50 people in front of us. That’s what happened. I said 'when you see it on TV, you'll see that it was a penalty and send off’ and he shouted 'you’re out'. That’s all that happened. We all make mistakes. You have to be fair, admit your mistakes and that’s it. There’s nothing wrong with making mistakes, but you shouldn’t go any further and want to be the protagonist", he reflected.

http://en.clubatleticodemadrid.com/noticias/gabi-the-referee-should-have-more-dialogue-with-the-player
+1
If this is true, shame on the ref for spoiling what was a great game of football.
I always thought players should be able to talk to the referee respectfully about decisions and calls during the game. In Europe all the referee's basically tell the player I'm hearing none of it, so I agree with Gabi if this is true.
That sucks...I feel for Gabi.
I dunno if it warranted a send-off though. A penalty and yellow card?
Keep in mind this is Gabi's account of what happened, not the referee's. It is very possible, even probable, Gabi toned it down for the interview.
He can't complain much because the dive against Masche was outside the box and they still got the penalty..
Isn't Gabi the captain? I think captains should always be allowed to talk to the ref. I see why the refs don't want to talk to players cause usually they yell and stuff but captains should be able to question the ref's decision in a respectful manner.
Captains ARE allowed to communicate with the officials. That's one of the responsibilities of being a captain, isn't it? But like Alfrodo mentioned, we don't know exactly what was said and how it was said. Context is important.

ROFL, I've contacted Matt to change it to "White" mate, if you have trouble logging in at any time, it's cos the username's been changed.
We don't want you here, and I'm not going to accept your friend request ;)
+1
Welcome back, old friend. I'm glad to hear the Ozil-virus has been fixed. I can only imagine what that must have been like. If Iniesta were sold, I would probably lose my mind.
+1
There is no way thats all he said, almost every player at some point during the game yelled at that ref. Players were very intense and passionate all game. If that is all he said I highly doubt the ref would have done that, did you guys see Mascherano just give it to the guy after that wrongful penalty call?

If that is all that happened though, a great injustice has been done to futbol fans all over the world because that game was going to be of biblical proportions had the second half been like the first.
+1
No one call that number I repeat no one call that number
+2
*proceeds to call number*

Luckily Torres' form rubbed off into Turan. Else he would have joined CR7 in a two match ban.
+1
Remember how Luis Enrique was suppose to be axed? Feels like a long time ago :P
+1
I won't be satisfied with just a CDR trophy this season. Our squad SHOULD challenge for all 3 competitions. We cannot afford to drop any more points in the league as well.
He still got the starting 11 wrong for Real Sociedad. We would have been 2 points ahead of Madrid. Even though I like his rotations, he under estimated Sociedad that time.
We need a good performance against Villareal, Bilbao and City. Maybe we just need results regardless of how we perform? I dunno how should we measure the teams performance.
+2
Really I still believe its down to MSN, and how good of form are they. If we get them all in form, we are simply unstoppable. Hopefully next moth Suarez really gets going, but Im not betting on it
I think Suarez hasn't been that bad as people are putting him to be. I see him as a decoy. He may not be scoring goals but he does help in creating a lot of chances.
+1
What if he becomes more than a decoy??? Imagine :P
+2
Suarez isn't scoring because he is missing chances... People should watch full games.
+1
Thank you for stating the obvious @ThePandavas xD

Still, If Suarez hits that Liverpool form, oh my god I would run riot all over town butt naked! True story :D
Man I do watch full matches thats why I am saying he is more of a decoy.
He has missed some good chances like against Atletico inside the 6 yard box. But some chances were great saves as well.
He is not a Torres 2.0
Enrique is a Barca man through and through like Pep, of course he was going to be given the chance to finish at least the season.

Although I am still very sad that we got rid of Tata.
Che, our first half was like one of Tata's games where we didn't give a damn about the possession and hit them on the counter. It was only the second half where we dominated possession cause they got a red card. I'm just glad Lucho isn't afraid to lose the ball and change our style according to the opponent.
