When Torres scores , Chelsea gets to play in the finals of the champions league.

800+ passes in a match where most of those were either from one wing to another or along the back 4, is just boring football.

We all know messi is the best player in the world right now . We also know he has scored 63 goals this season . What some of us dont know is , Messi Never scored a goal against Chelsea in the 8 matches he played against us. He had a golden chance this time but he bottled it.

If a side could come away from a match with 84% overall possesion and yet not win , then they do not deserve a better fate. The deification of Barcelona encourages us to believe tiki taka is the only truly legitimate style of play - but this is patent nonsense.
Recently, Barcelona's football has been easier on the eye than their results. We should never forget the point of football is to put the ball in the net - there are no prizes for possession.

If defending were easy, every club could leave the Camp Nou with a 0-0 draw - but Barcelona have hit four or more goals in 15 of their 28 home games this season, including hauls of seven, eight and nine.

Keeping Barcelona at bay takes hard work, discipline and tactical awareness.

We should celebrate different styles of play, not berate them.
