    It would be good if we could finish the game in the 1st half.

    When was the last time we did that away from Camp Nou? Clasico? We generally struggle away and in 1st halves.

    I guess Lucho will go all in here and rest some players on weekend before team travels to London.

    Winning this would be a huge step towards the title. Sporting is in good form, 2 draws and 2 wins in the last 4 matches. Can't be complacent.

    Nervous about this match... One of those games we sleep walk through. Like someone else said... huge step towards the title if we win this as we will be able to afford to lose 2 matches.
    "I pass and I move, I help you, I look for you, I stop, I raise my head, I look and, above all, I open up the pitch...The one who has the ball, is the master of the game...That's the school of Joan Vilà, of Albert Benaiges, of Johan Cruijff, of Pep Guardiola" - Xavi Hernandez

    !!Visca Barça!! !!Visca Catalunya!!

    Need a convincing away game before our trip to the Emirates next week. Would be nice if Busi, Masche and Neymar could all just get that YC and suspension too. Would save them the long trip to Las Palmas where we just have to hope for the best without them.

    Need to play good. Besides Bernaleo we didn't put good performances in away matches. Gonna be tough game.

    I have a feeling Arda and Rakitic will start this game, they are well rested. We might have some trouble, but I am convinced we'll win this anyway.

    Must win to get back where we blong, 7 points ahead of Madrid
    The Internet is full of tribute videos with some version of the title "Messi doesn't dive" a trait rare in a sport where players roll around on the ground like gunshot victims when an opponent so much as breathes on them.

    Theories abound about why Messi won't fall, about his character or his respect for the game, but I think it's much simpler. If he dives, he loses the ball.

    I'd like to see some rotation these next two games, it is not realistic to expect the stars to be able to play twice every week for months on end. Especially with three away games in a row now, two outside of Europe.

    I'd like to see Messi left home for one of the next two road games, Neymar left home for the other one. Suarez is so hot right now, he has to keep on playing.
