Lionel Messi shines for Barca, in ‘the scandal of the Bernabeu’…

Forget the Old Firm between Glasgow Celtic and Rangers – on the field ‘El Clasico’ is just as bad – if not worse. On Wednesday night, Real Madrid hosted Barcelona in a massive UEFA Champions League Semi-Final 1st Leg tie at the Bernabeu. Sir Alex Ferguson, in attendance along with 78,000 others, watched fights, brawls, dives, ect. litter the biggest derby in Spanish football from start to finish, and even after the full-time whistle… 
Barca reserve goalkeeper, Jose Manuel Pinto, was shown red by referee Wolfgang Stark when his actions erupted a melee before both sides dispersed down the tunnels at the interval. In the second half, Madrid defender Pepe was astonishingly sent-off, despite winning the ball in a one-footed challenge. The Catalan team had disgracefully surrounded the referee, forcing the German official into sending-off Pepe, gie Barca the upper-hand.
José in trouble
José Mourinho sarcastically applauded the decision, landing him a spot in the stands. But then the football took over, as Lionel Messi scored twice in 11 minutes. Ibrahim Affelay’s cross was met by the little Argentinian forward, who flicked the ball past Iker Casillas and into the back of the net. 

Just before the final whistle, Messi fantastically dribbled through 4 Real defenders, managing to get the ball bast Casillas just before he hit the ground to make it two.
Pep Guardiola’s side take a highly-controversial 2-0 advantage into the 2nd Leg at Camp Nou, but there’s little to suggest that the men in white will overturn the deficit. So, can United make it to Wembley for revenge ?…

Barcelona are a complete disgrace to the beatiful game, pedro and sergio both went down clutching their faces when not even touched.

Messi went down like he was shot after losing the ball while dani alves doesnt even know whats its like to stay on his feet, 3 times he dived, the most disgusting was the one where he was untouched and rolled about like pepe broke his leg, the shameless barce players then surrounded the ref and bullied him into sending off an innocent man, lets not forget the two attempts to con pen by barcelona as well…cheats.

Barcelona couldnt handle 11 man Madrid and had one game plan, dive, dive, dive and get a madrid lad sent off,…..simple a massively over-rated football club who are due a beaten some time soon, dont deserve to be in the final.

United v barcelona in the final……we will rip them to shreds, the past week has seen Barcelona crash back down to earth and now they are there for the taking, not only do we have the better players, but we play the better football and come wembley, we will prove to the world that we are still the biggest club on the planet and there’s nothing the cheats of spain can do about it.

Barca are Cheats wankers .all the players standing around the ref to get Pepe send of what a joke gone COME on United lets beat this ugly team from Spain people are being fooled thinking Barca play good football the dont they play in a shite league . it is time the prove to people that a are not a great team then what people think there



Thu, 28 Apr 2011 12:25:27 pm

It may not be very sporting but diving and shirt pulling is part of the game now. Ronaldo often went over easily but it still held in high regard by us , Barca are a great team still and will be different again with Iniesta as we were without Rooney against City

Good way 2 avenge defeat of d Spanish King’s Cup…. Barca is a good team of swimmers like Michael Phelps who taught them how 2 dive n get away till d finish line in tis was d final whistle…. Well done Messi & co.

Fink he was bein sarcastic

Barce over-reacted to every single foul (sometimes not even a foul or contact) what a shame! All they did was trying to get players send off or suspended for next game. I hope the ref in the final has a clear head and not get fooled by them.

I am sending my dossier on how to beat Barcelona to my good friend Sir Alex Ferguson.

I pray to God there will be no shenanigans in the final. I will brief my good friend Sir Alex on this.

United players must be careful not to get into a position where the referee can make one of these “strange” decisions.

Be careful Red Devils.

Yours sincerely, Jose.

Barca should be turn out of the Champions league .it is being fixed mark my words . Jose will see you in a few years

C’on guys, being united fans doesn’t mean you can’t praise a good team or good players for that matter.

@Derek: I totally agree with you. Ronaldo was still the same diving all the time and hoping to get penalty or free kicks. Shirt pulling, diving are all part of the modern games so there is no point in running away from reality.

Well, good luck to ManU for the Wembley. I guess they need more than just luck to go past Barca though.

Dickhead, we stopped you in 1984, 1991, 1998 and 2008; scooping the Cup Winners’ Cup and two European Cups in the process.

You beat us in 1994 and 2009, picking up the European Cup for the latter.

Piss off!

Spanish football is full of fucking cunts!!



Thu, 28 Apr 2011 10:07:18 pm

Barcelona was a disgrace to millions of fans watching. How many kids out they who look up to those players watched that match? They are paid lots of money because of the millions of fans supporting the game and to spoil the beautiful game like that is just disgusting. Try explaining those actions to your 7year old boy I’m actually gutted and feel UNICEF should take away their emblem off the Barcelona shirt. Barcelona is supposed to be the pinnacle of everything that’s beautiful about soccer.

not that i like madrid but hate barca, thought i was gonna see a beautiful game otherwise it turned into a dirty shiz. UNITED ALL THE WAY !



Fri, 29 Apr 2011 7:14:27 am

Barca’s players will do more of the same vs United in the final, I’ll bet my arse on that. They can play great football but when things aren’t going their way, cheating’s the Barca way.
