So topic is up. Let the match begin
Go get them Van der Sar!!
Just brillant, a joy to watch.
I didn't watch. I decided F1 on iPlayer was much better
Was an excellent game. Brilliant play from time to time by FCB!
Feel sorry for Edwin though..
question is how do you shutdown barca....
Man utd did nothing wrong in all honesty, they covered and defended well, if they had pressed barca would have had a field day.
The first two goals for Barca came from a lack of marking. No-one followed Pedro into the box for the first and Messi was given 5 yards when he received the ball to score the second. I think if United had closed down quicker and had someone to specifically mark Messi, those goals could have been prevented. Everytime United got the ball, Barca were all over them and most of the time, they only had time for one touch. It was because United were chasing the game that Barca got the 3rd.
United were awful, Park was only on the pitch to close down players - and he didn't do that once. Was a sublime performace by Barca, proving they are in a different league to everyone else.
Not sure what game you were watching then because at one point in the 1st half he closed down and tackled 2 players in the space of 5 seconds, as well as the several other times he done so.
