    Was reading SAF's autobio and reminds me of the situation he had with Phil Neville, Phil bled for the club but wasn't good enough, and when SAF wanted to let him go he called him and his wife over to his house, and his wife refused to leave the car and broke down crying. He had to explain to Phil and her that despite being United through and through he had to let him go to do the best for Phil as ultimately he was holding his career back from progressing.

    Winners win and losers lose. It's that simple.

    If you create a culture of losing, if you keep being a victim, if you keep letting losing happen to you, if you keep letting teams treat you any kind of way, it's going to become a culture.

    Interesting that SAF was widely wanted out of the club in 2002.

    My line up for Barca

    Cech, Hector, Mert, Kos, Monreal, Coq, Elneny, Ozil, Welbeck, Alexis, Theo.

    Sit deep, keep a solid defensive shape with emphasis on incisive counter attacking football. Get in their faces at certain periods with high intensity pressing.

    Barca can be got at tbh if we set up right we can get a result

    Barca are not a Pep side. A Guardiola side is easy to beat as you just do what you described above. You can't really do that versus Enrique's Barca.

    Its hard not to see Barcelona not scoring. I think they'll comfortable score more than 2 goals against Arsenal. Reckon the scoreline will probably be 3-1 in favour of Barcelona. But you never know I guess, Arsenal might just produce something.

    This is quite insulting to Wenger tbh. The man deserves more respect and the margin between the two managers is very thin. Fergie would have struggled massively had he been in Wenger's situation at Arsenal without a shadow of a doubt.

    I saw an example of a loyal Arsenal fan yesterday, which in Barnet is not unusual. What was different was that this was a supporter who was visually impaired, and had put tape on his white stick so it was a red and white one.

    I don't think we'll get a result at the Nou either, last time they lost there was one year ago

    Agree with shawn for once. No chance at all we are winning at the Nou Camp. Our best chance is somehow winning at home and trying to squeeze through on away goals in the second leg.

    Absolutely - if we play our cards 100% right, and get really lucky too, I think we may have a chance.

    We can, if we want, beat anyone at home - we've shown it in the past. If we don't concede at home, and go to Nou Camp with a 2-0.. we would need to play extremely defensively, and have Theo, Alexis and Welbz countering.

    Essentially need to do what Chelsea did a few years ago..

    That said, I think we'll win/draw at home and get absolutely ****ed at the Camp Nou :lol:

    Cech
    Bellerin Merta Kosc Monreal
    Coq Elneny
    Welbz Ozil Alexis
    Theo

    Should be how we line up..
