Haven't watched much of Barcelona this season but based on this game, how on earth have they lost only once all season? Unimaginative in possession, everything was going through Messi and so many aging as well as slow players in the side. Not beating them tonight is a big opportunity missed.

I have said it multiple times before this game, this is not the same barca. I was shocked watching them against eibar n madrid. They looked so poor yet they won both games. Having said that, they have Coutinho  and Dembele on the bench.

That is not because spurs and us are from london but because we got decent opposition whilst the other english team drew some bunches of clowns that have no business playing cl

Probably because, unlike us, everyone they play in La Liga other than Real Madrid and Atleti are scared shitless of them. They go behind and Barca just blow them away. We showed balls and character today and didn't let their best players take over the game.

Nope, Eibar dominated them last week but one magic pass by Messi to Suarez. They were up 1-0

Coutinho is cup tied and there is a reason why they left dembe out - he is not up to speed like morata

Why are people so disheartened, before this game I didn't even think that Chelsea could have gone through, we were by far the better team, making a team with Suarez, Messi, Iniesta look clueless in attack, all to play for at the Camp Nou really and I really think Chelsea will go through after seeing today's performance

Let's be honest though, Barcelona were really poor. They're lucky they weren't playing Liverpool/Man City tonight or it could have been ugly.

They really were. They still got the quality to play it perfectly when it counts and they got the space but if we had been more attentative in that one situation where christensen makes that blunder adn also azpi goes to ground to early we would have won this game quite comfortably. If they repeat this performacne at City they will get hammered.

Yea I know. I mentioned it more in general sense rather than UCL. They have two really good young player to replace their older guard

It hurts more this way. Would've been easier to accept if we just got played off the park. Barca have been very fluky this season, can't see them winning it.

There is still a narrow chance we quality in the return leg via the away goals. that would be sweet albeit improbable. The thing is in the away leg we are the ones who have to score now so it will be really dangerous not to allow them too much space. However if Messi has a day off even worse than today or picks up an injury, we are favourites. They are an absolute shadow of their glory days, only that badly aged front 3 other than that Paulinho, Rakitic, Umtit, Aleix Vidal etc are no better than our very own Moses, Fabregas, Alonso horror show.There is no doubt our vintage sides would have wiped the floor with this lot but it might also be a valid point that we did not quite achieve the same as our similarly weak 2012 side managed against their vintage class of 2012

That is true but even with them, still think Barcelona are average in general with their play. They are still relatively successful because they have Messi but their overall quality has dipped a lot since the Guardiola days.

It was the manner in which we drew. Dominated the game and should have won by a bigger margin, but it was undone by one moment of our own doing.

I certainly still have faith in getting a score draw

Yeah do know that lol just how it's fallen.. Northen lot all through.. Us Southeners got the crapppy end/draw.. Especially spurs seeing they topped the group. 

We could be been in the same position had we not lost to Roma..drew with Roma.. Athletico... Though I'd rather go out to Barcalona then the likes of another English team. 

Just gotta go for it next round.. Nothing to lose.. And if we lose hopefully can do with pride. Tonight we did.. Need to do it again.

Incredible. Who would after THOSE two loses think that we could pull this off? Proud to the sky, game was so great to watch.

I told you Willian will be great in this game. :D

And Conte... Well, haters will hate. Bravo, maestro!

It is true but with dembele they will have more width and pace on the wing and Coutinho will have more impact compare to iniesta who is clearly on the back end of his career.

Dembele Suarez Messi

Coutinho Rakitic

Busquet

The Camp Nou doesn't make the Barcelona players perform better, I don't understand why people talk of it like it instills some kind of magic, and this certainly wasn't an off day for Barcelona, this is just how good they are, Iniesta and Busquets made no mistakes in passing and Suarez was good with dribbling and creating chances, they had almost 80 percent possession as well, by no means an off day and yet we dominated and they never even looked like scoring, If we play with more attacking intent and with Giroud I think, Morata looked like such a kid up front. We have a good chance of winning it.

Coutinho is just a long range shooter merchant.

After watching Barca today i think City are way better team ...They are a machine with more pace and Relentless pressing
