I'm sure Conte will try and spin the 3-0 in a positive way. Fucking fraud. 

What is wrong with our approach today....you cannot blame coach everytime...this is the level of players at the moment.. Even pep will not advance with our squad today..also we are unlucky with the scoreline...it really flatters them

We didn't have the quality to do anything in attack. We basically lost the game at Stamford Bridge. We should have used the same approach in this game at Stamford Bridge but Conte was in awe of Barcelona and was telling us we're going to have to "suffer". At home. 

I disagree, at home it is important to be conservative especially in the 1st leg.  If we were down 2-0 at home, it is practically over. Our plan in the 1st leg was almost perfect before Christensen mistake.

Look all this anti-Hazard is sh*t talk.
He's the only one who can use the ball and create.
When Moses or Alonso are in possession we pray for a simple straight pass to another blues player.
I don't care if he did not find himself at the end of a scoring chance tonight.

The bridge game was -unhappily- sold by Christensen.
Tonight's was sold by Tibot.
Even if we had held to the secure 1-0 at the bridge, given Tibot's horrible antics tonight we d' be out.
If a youth appeared to the juniors team and conceded one like Barca's first, they 'd send him back to his mum and dad the same hour.

For Morata (and Baka) we 've been through many times. Waste of money of the century.
Sevchenko too was a flop 10 years ago, but he at least was admired all over the continent when he came to us. Morata was the substitute of the substitute.

No one is talking about advancing. Of course ddefensive individual mistakes are not his fault but he has a LOT of the blame. Conte is to blame for the way we approached the game in the 1st leg. He's mostly to blame for our terrrible season. 

In the 1st leg we have 25% possession at home and a couple of speculative long distance shots and so many people have been deluded into believing that was a great performance. Conte even said it was almost perfect. He needs to be sacked for his shit mentality and negative, dour football. He basically deflated the team after the City debacle.

Even with the attacking approach today, we didn't exactly create many clear cut chances, did we? Looked more dangerous yes but think we only had like 1-2 shots inside the box. It's all ifs and buts now but this leg would have been different had we gotten some luck with one of those shots or Christensen didn't press the self destruct button in the first leg.

Sorry? I have to disagree with you my friend. It's 10 times harder to get a positive result against Barcelona at Stamford Bridge than at the Nou Camp. They barely left 2nd gear and beat us 3-0.Let's not forget Barcelona were not really that special at SB but how many times did we commit men to the attack or high press them? Only sparingly.  Sadly you've been decieved by Conte's post match propaganda.

It's 10 times harder to score or look threatening at the Nou Camp than at SB. At Stamford Bridge they started with Paulinho and Iniesta in a 4-4-2 by the wings yet we didn't go for the jugular. It was a very conservative display.

Of course a better wingback could have scored, a better midfielder could have put in better passes, a better striker could have made more chances, we don't have that stuff though, instead of just whining about the result, appreciate the team for putting in everything they had, running for every ball. You can't expect a player to increase his qualities but you can ask them to put in the hard work and the team did exactly that.

By the way, this is our third consecutive Champions League exit in the round of 16. We're becoming Arsenal...

Worse than that because we ain't playing champions league next year.

Thought we'd match their scoreline at one point! 

May not have to worry about it next season...

We are facing multiple problems in the team right now in each and every position

- Tibo is looking shaky and nowhere near the worlds best keeper that we claim him to be, he is not going anywhere near that madrid team after a performance like that

- Rudiger and anreas playing together is disastrous, need someone solid and experienced back there

- Fabregas is gifting goals from the 2 man midfield role whenever he plays

- Both our strikers are not top class

We need a complete squad overhaul if we want even a whiff at pl or the europa league trophy next season

Yes, that takes some doing but if I'm going to be critical, what's the point of looking threatening if we don't even have the end product? It's like watching Arsenal play us years ago - play attacking football but become brain dead in final third and we just pick them off on the counter. Pretty much the same thing happened.

We have n't got but quite undeservedly so.
We are not Aston Villa.
But I stick to the goalie's performance. A match in which Peter Czech became an all time hero, and he performed like a circus clown.

I'm done for the night Jason. This is incredibly frustrating and depressing. Shit shit season. The board and the manager need to take a long long look at themselves. Right now the future of the club looks far from bright. We're a horribly run club.

It is true that getting a result at nou camp is extremely difficult but if we open up too much we will give Messi too much space. Yes, it is just one player but not any player. I watched barca game 5 times this season including 2 against us and they all the same. This barca team look pedestrian but no team dare to open up against them, the moment you do that you give Messi space to play and you can see red flag everywhere.

Average squad. 

Wouldnt have gone any further even if we had managed to pull it off 

RM look great. City also one has to admit. But we are not useless - given as you say we pulled this one through.
