    who are you talkin about
    im just wondering so i can look out
    its just this season i havent watched as much spanish ball as i would of before id a 3 year old
    cummmmmmmmm oonnnnnnnnnnnnnn

  2. joero says:

    Voted Henry..

    If Henry plays he will be up against O’Shea. No offence to O’shea but if Henry has a good game, we will have big problems.

  3. Androo says:

    Iniesta – control the midfield, you control the game.

  4. tel says:

    eto’o……he is lethal, rio will need to hit the ground running tonight
    still think we will win

    1-0 vida 100/1

  5. Stephen says:

    Surly Xavi is the string puller for Barc, was quite surprised not to see him on that list, Eto’o did not turn up against Chelsea, Messi has never performed that well against English clubs bar Chelsea a few seasons back, and we all know Henry is a big game bottler.

  6. wazza says:

    Ando should be in Iniesta’s face all the time. his close control of the ball is terrific. but we should be tight on all of them.

  7. King Eric says:

    fuckin eto’o? Vida or Rio will nail him. O’shea can deal with Henry the arrogant cunt. Like Stephen says he is a big game bottler.

    wazza did you get you giggs chant you asked for
    bit of bad news a man united fan got stabbed in the leg last night in rome


    JUST HEARD : United fan been stabbed in Rome ( No surprise) If the UK had the recent stabbing foreign fans record that Rome has had then we would not be allowed to travel let alone be awarded the final. When will UEFA show some balls as regards the so-called Ultras. Platini should be ashamed and any violence that follows will be a reflection on this idiotic decision to stage the final in Rome. It would be great but you are stupid to ignore the reputation of the Romans and their arse stabbing coward fans.

  10. SULLY says:

    Forget City signing Messi or Eto’o. I’d take Iniesta over them both. A different class who sent Lampard AWOL in the semi-finals. A freightening prospect indeed.

  11. Stephen says:

    Bit suprised to see Pique on that list, with Ronnie and Wazza running at him he could be our match winner.

  12. costas says:

    Xavi first and then Iniesta for me.They are the ones pulling the strings.Lets see how Messi does without Alves making spaces for him.

  13. Nemanja says:

    Nobody should care about eto’o. I’m better than him. FACT. Rio can just go through the gears against him. He is the most overated footballer in the world ever.

  14. Nemanja says:

    It’s not Messi. Patty will do a job on him. Iniesta is a great player. He Is the only Barcelona player that would cut it in the Premiership. He controls the game but let’s hope that Ando doesnt give him an inch.

  15. cherry says:

    Voted Iniesta. He is their Carrick, he ochestrate all their play and free up Henry and Messi, I honestly think he will cause us problems

  16. Dani says:

    The one we should really be carefull with is not on the list. Xavi comands the team, not Iniesta. He the guy that makes me fearful (in the lack of a better word). Then Messi.
    But of course Henry, Eto’o and Iniesta can all decide. What a great match it will be.

  17. wazza says:

    @GHTT : nice video mate. where did you get that Giggsy from ? & his head ?
    sounds sweet when Emily says ‘Come On the Champions’

  18. Patrik says:

    Xavi, he’s the playmaker, or maybe Iniesta. After that Messi and then Eto’o.

  19. KVN says:

    i think there might be some suprises by SAF. Did you see how Wes Brown play against Hull? He looked good, like he never been out for those months. maybe SAF will play him at RB?
    Henry hasn’t got that electric pace like he did with Arsenal, yes he is still fast but not the lightning speed like before. Therefore, O’Shea should be able to handle him along with Carrick’s help.
    I think Iniesta is their real danger followed by Xavi and that means Anderson and Giggs will have to bring their A game. If we stop them, and I think we will, then the midfield is ours. and we can break their defence. Victor Valdes is an average keeper, even Barcelona fans don’t really rate him. and he is susceptible to dropping or missing crosses. i think that as they’re missing so many key players in defence and as a consequence will have to reshuffle their midfield , we should seek to exploit these areas and gain the advantage.which is why we can beat Barcelona.

  20. Giles Oakley says:

    The whole bloody lot!

  21. Sprelligosi says:

    Xavi is the ringleader take him out and the rest will crumble.

  22. King Eric says:

    KVN – I am a huge fan of Wesley but , and I may be wrong, there is no way Sir Alex will risk him tonight after such limited game time. Its one thing playing Hull to marking Henry. Even though I do think Henry is massively over rated these days. As Stephen said on an earlier thread he is “a big game bottler”. JOS will do just fine at right back tonight.
