No, I'm not comparing Barcelona to Italy Just stating that your quote. Italy just shot, where's the excitement. That's how I see Barcelona, a boring game of control in the opponents half, but instead of shooting, it's passing.
In this I leave you alone ...Barca did a looooootttt of goals and defeat every team they have in front...( except sometimes Mou...)
I know you strongly dislike Barça, but I don't really think that anyone with a minimum of impartiality and love for football can be so blind... Barça might bore you, but they surely play one of the biggest and best footballs around. Italy was just defending like mad (and very well!) and attacking without much sense - and failing TONS of easy goals.
the difference between Barcelona and Italy is .. Messi
just defending like mad?? we were the one in blue Sergio
like Pato said .. we left the good strikers at home
Balotelli is a twat. He can be a genious, but most of the time he's just too self-conscious and fails one after another.
And yes, you defended really good (=like mad) when the English approached!
