    If lionel messi wouldn't have scored from the penalty miss rebound then anyways the penalty should've been retaken because cillessen was off his line while making the save...ale can't exactly blame messi for not scoring a penalty which was goin to be retaken

Con todo respeto Alejandro, pero te pagan para basurear a Messi? Hablas con esas "botas de oro" de fondo con una autoridad que te da que? haber metido dos dobletes en toda tu carrera en la competitiva liga de USA allá por 2007? Que sabrás de presión vos? Sos uno más de los que comen alimentando el odio y la envidia a Messi ya que tiene muchos adeptos. La verdad no se como gente como vos trabaja de generar discordia y odio, y no me creo que no seas consciente de ello.

He says we had difficulty braking down Valencia.. we had 3 clear goal chances in the first half and about 2-3 crosses that no one was at the end of.. when we went down in and around minute 50 we had to be patient and look for an opening that was an opening for frenkie that wasa deliberate hand ball for which lato should have been sent off which he wasn't.. also cillassen was off his line it would have been retaken u are just gonna ignore that fact,

      the rules r different now, if the goalkeeper didn't need to do much to make the save or in other words, if the penalty was pre bad, then it doesn't matter if the gk came off his line. Messi's pen was pre horrible, so it wouldn't have been retaken. Phil Schoen mentioned this.

    Barca doesn't need a no 9 they need better defenders... Guess who are the leaders of la Liga in terms of scoring goals? Atletico - 61 Real--58 Barca-80 Sevilla-49 The numbers don't lie we have clearly no problems regarding goalscoring ... And this is without Fati or Coutinho.. Defensively however we concede way too many goals and that's where I call out on the management to sign better defenders first and then look elsewhere. Deep down you and I both know that Dest, Araujo, and Mingueza are the only 3 defenders who have quality and will only get better with time ...all of the remaining get into form for 20 minutes or one or 2 games once in a while, which is not acceptable at least for me. Gerard, Alba, Roberto, Lenglet, Umtiti, Firpo all need to go. Almost 120 to 150 million right there on the table. Not only will this mean more funds for further signings but also for academy players to get more minutes and shine.
