    If he starts Dembele and we attack and we go out because Chelsea got lucky or something I will back Valverde 100%. But if we play conservative and lose like Mourinho did last night, Valverde for me is done.

    He would never play defensively at home and why would he? Chelski are just going to play 5 at the back, defend for their lives and try and hit on the counter or a set piece. Tonight is about patience, concentration and discipline. We must not get frustrated if we have a lot of possession and are not creating many chances, that is going to be Conte's game-plan. Remember that we go through if it is a 0-0 draw. If Chelski want to come and defend, then let them. They are the one's that have to score, not us.

    You never know with Valverde. He may be pragmatic but he threw Dembélé in vs Juve after having played just 2 or 3 games for Barça. If you can compare an opponent we faced with Chelsea it definitely is Allegri's Juve. Not the formation, but the tactical approach. Okay, it was just a group game , but still.

    Have mixed feelings about the game. Chelsea is always a tough tie and they did a pretty good job in London. However, Barça at Camp Nou is a different beast in CL and I feel the team has left those extra % they didn't give in the last games in easier games. They needed the GOAT to score a freekick to win vs Atléti though.

    Dont trust EV at all, prepping for a slow game with sterile possesion and a whole lot of drama at the end.

    W/o iniesta we'll turtle up like against atletico..which to some was an amazing tactical play by ev...to me it was bullshit on a bad day for atleti..

    My trust is in messi and him alone...but playing the workhorse and getting eliminated will be agonizing to watch..

    How anyone can possibly criticise Ernesto after the records he has set this season is a absolute joke.

    Trust me, if we play boring football he will be sacked no matter the records, because an empty Camp Nou is not an option.

    Comments how barca shoukd trash chelsea because they are bad in PL, city and united won against them...


    Short reminder 2012, they sacked coach after group stages, they had old squad, di mateo as a coach, far from top 4 in PL, and they kicked barca out and they did it with 10 players on camp nou, and barca with superior squad back then

    that was good lesson for me, chelsea just doesnt suit barca, and position in domestic legaue doesnt matter, so It will probably be though match again until the end and not many goals

    People just looking for excuses to criticize Valverde. Even if we win 2-1 people can say it was a disappointing performance and another coach would have won 4-0 here.

    Performances this season have been a bit underwhelming and I bet you vast majority of fans would agree.

    Barca will be on the front foot tonight, it's a home game and the team has more rest than last time. I also expect Dembele to feature as he is more ready than last time.

    What records?

    Points comparison by the 28th match week:

    17-18:72 points
    16-17:63 points
    15-16:72 points
    14-15:68 points
    13-14:66 points
    12-13:74 points
    11-12:63 points
    10-11:75 points
    09-10:71 points
    08-09:69 points

    In other words,by the 28th match week,Barca has 69.3 points on average te last 10 years.Which means that this year’s team has 3 more points than the average.Wow,what an achievement.
    The official Barcaforum 2016/17 MotM thread

    "At Barcelona, you’ll hear about this kid on the youth team. He wears number 10 like you. He’s small like you. He plays with the ball like you.[...]His name is Leo Messi.[...]I want you to give him one piece of advice.

    Tell him, “Play with happiness. Play free. Just play with the ball.”

    Even when you are gone, the free style will live on in Barcelona through Messi."

    We cant expect very good performances yet(especially in CL), but we can hope next season we are attacking team, at least most of the times.
