No i would just ask the coach : Hey coach do you think we should play 10 men at the back and just kick the ball the hardest we can?
Do you think jumping into the air and flopping to the floor without getting touched, and then being awarded penalties like Cesc Fabregas does is the right way to play football?

Do you think diving to the floor faking injury when you havent even been touched to get opposing players sent off, like Dani Alvez did against Pepe to give him a bullshit redcard is the right way to play football?

Things like these happen all the time. But you are too blinded to see that. You only notice it when it happens for Barca.

Yes I'm new, am no alt account, but I saw you calling others bandwagoners already and it's hypocritical if you don't support your local team. I got no problem with bandwagoning, if your local league sucks. Due to the overexposure of CL football alot of football fans choose to follow a football team of a bigger league, but if you do don't call out others.

btw I called you gloryhunter not bandwagoner last time. That's a better term imo.

That red card was totally warranted. Injury or no injury, he tackled him with a stiff leg from behind. Textbook red card by fifa rules.

Do you think its the right way to play football? That's barca plan B. Plan A is pass the ball around. If that doesnt work, Plan B seems to be diving and cheating for free penalties. Is that how football is supposed to be played?

Aside from you describing how they play in stupid terms that are wrong, you would basically be told to go home. You are basically saying that you want every team to play like Barcelona as if there aren't different styles, and that making tactical decisions against better teams is not necessary. And winning is the point. You clearly are not a person who plays sports. Playing a tight gameplan perfectly like that and beating a better team is hugely exciting.

You sound more like the American soccer fan that me, you think defense isn't important.

gloryhunter is someone who starts to follow a team who just started winning titles. someone who is mainstream in football. someone like barca in 2008/09 when they won everything. well im a fan of this team way earlier than that. but if u feel like calling someone u dont know a gloryhunter on an internet forum, feel free to...

as for bandwagoner i think i got that when i said that i cheer for spain and not macedonia ( or maybe even before that when i said that i like some of madrid's players )


If that is bandwagoner than what is someone who cheers for 2-3 or more teams? There are many of those in this forum. So yeah i find it ironic when someone like that calls me bandwagoner.

Not sure if we're talking about the same foul. Will look it up. Might be in the wrong.

There is absolutely nothing Barca does that you hate. You are basically arguing that Chelsea should have played a style that allowed Barca to win in order to gain the respect of fans around the world. Literally you are saying that. WHY DIDN'T THEY PLAY THE STYLE BARCA WANTED THEM TO?

You've told me like 97 times i don't know what i'm talking about and you are arguing today that defensive play is wrong, tactical play is wrong, and that winning in that style is below losing.
