    That last paragraph. :giggle1:
    “The general opinion of this team that was once respectable and no longer is has plummeted. It’s an unattractive, fearful team, rich in resources but lamentable in its play,” he added. “Mourinho is starting to look like a washed-up rock star, one of those guys that goes around holiday hotels for pensioners playing old hits on an organ with the base and the percussion playing on a tape recorder.”

    Think Mourinho will find himself in international management sooner rather than later, think his tactics are more suited these days to international football.

    Hope it's England. If he did go International it would be so funny seeing his squad, probably none of the players in the country's top 20 cause skillful players let their imaginations run away with them and don't follow his less is more philosophy of possession. Probably win the Euros with Greece again.

    I think that's his nickname for Ibra. Suspiciously the only player I've heard saying they loved him. Where is the big man anyway? Bad injury?

    I'm really nervous about tonight. Unlike the dumb pundits last night I know it's very possible Chelsea could put Barca out because even though they're not having the best season they still have players who could score a couple against any team in the world. That * Willian is too good for Chelsea and is giving me the fear cause he makes chances and goals out of nothing. I mean they're a £bn team, a lot of dangerous players who have nothing to lose as Barca are favourites and the headhunters wouldn't criticise them for getting beat in a stadium very few teams win in. But Alaves wasn't that long ago.

    Plus another omen is I heard Messi's Mrs just gave birth a few days ago and everyone is saying he'll be in such a good mood he's going to play brilliant. But I remember him arriving at Celtic Park a few days after the birth of his first son and he had a dummy * down his socks fully expecting to celebrate his son by sucking on it when he scored. But by the time he scored he was sucking his thumb.

    The good news is Iniesta is fully fit and in the squad. I would start him, no use trying to play catch up as a sub. Coutino is cup tied obviously? Big test for Dembele maybe. That would be good because he'll be full on trying to make an impression against the Champions of the best league in the world.

    Suarez must be dying to pump them too after that disastrous day when Stevie G slipped and the blue wall went up.

    The reason I want Barca to win so much is because I quite simple hate Chelsea winning any game. Just something about them, they've always been like wee neds.

    Mostly though it's because Barca play much more attractive football and I like watching the CL but I don't watch Chelsea games. Barca are entertaining. That PSG turnaround was incredible. Plus it's Tims vs huns.

    Mind you one of the worst weeks in my life was when Alba scored that last kick winner in the nou camp. I was grieving. Our lads played so well that night and we were 2 seconds away from a famous point against the odds. Luckily * is a Tim and we got payback 2 weeks later in Paradise. But aye the only team I like beating Barca is us and the only team I don't like them pumping is when we're in the same Group. Which seems like every year. They love our fans and Celtic Park though. Of course they normally win but it's the atmosphere, possibly the best they've played in a couple have said and Xavi says he's never seen fans cheer on their team with such passion even when getting beaten by a large margin. Most fans have already left after the 4th goal. Mind you we've got the best songbook in football so it's maybe a little bit of an illusion, we just love singing :56::ynwacelti

    I really hope they're in the mood but Conte is a clever * and he'll be defensively strong. Plus Pedro and Fabregas know the place well. But if Suarez and Messi et al are clicking no defence is stopping them, maybe ours next season.

    Vamos Barca!!! Dar a los putas un bombeo!!!

    Mourinhos tactics last night made absolutely no sense, starting Fellaini when he’s hardly kicked a ball in months was beyond stupid never mind the the fact he’s dung unless he using his chest but Jose has to take full responsibility for that result.When it’s nil nil in the first leg away from home who the * sets their team out to defend at home in those circumstances and his comments after the game were disgraceful.

    Jamesy, you can see why he always ends up falling out with players because he must be a cheeky * all the time. He probably wants sacked cause there was a manager who kept doing that and made a fortune in pay offs. Was it him? Or was it the other Portuguese guy?
    Utd have to get rid of him though, look how much money he's wasting and he doesn't give a *!

    Oh I hope you're right Paul and Keano, I'll be doing the Broony if that's the score.
