Sterling was unhappy last season about his lack of first team chances....always felt some team should've tried to take advantage and lure into a move but I dont know what's going on behind the scenes..

He looked so pissed off with Borini for missing that chance.

Excellent half from Barcelona, only thing missing is a goal.

One of the obvious differences that Vilanova seems to have implemented is the greater use of the sweeping cross field pass (more often to the right than the left due to how high up the pitch Alves is). It was noticeable against Sociedad and it's noticeable again tonight.

He also seems to be giving Pedro the chance to find his form again after a disappointing season last term. It's a good thing, he offers natural width and balance to the side.

Some of the football has been terrific, looks like only a matter of time until Barcelona score.

Anyway that was a game of the highest quality, really top drawer stuff. Barcelona will be a bit disappointed with Messi having had a chance to make it 4-1 but instead a mistake by Valdes allows Di Maria in to make it 3-2. Leaves the tie wide open going into the second leg. I have to say though Barcelona certainly looked like the better side, it will take something exceptional to stop Barcelona from winning La Liga and the Champions League.

My pick for motm is Andres Iniesta, nothing short of superb throughout.

Those who have voted Casillas, Alves, Pique, Marcelo, and Xabi Alonso into the team of the year, should be banned from watching football forever. :angry:

It's no secret that Spanish (mainly Barca and Real) clubs get special treatment when it comes to things like this.

True, but there's special treatment, and then theres ignoring every other league entirely. Some of the names on that list are a joke.
