Would you just have a butcher’s at Andres Iniesta’s opening goal in their 2-0 win over Viktoria Plzen last night? Depressingly, it’s just the latest in Barcelona’s ever-lengthening canon of exquisitely effortless team goals…

While we’re on the subject, here’s Lionel Messi’s ‘ball on a string’ cabaret act from the same game thrown in for good measure…

I’m fairly sure that isn’t actually possible.

    You wouldn’t catch Stoke playing that ‘light on your feet’ style of football

    You wouldn’t find Stoke winning the Champion’s League either! Lol!

  3. Krsta says:

    Aye, but could Barcelona be so dominant on a cold evening in Stoke? :P

  4. Stewart says:

    Barca have somehow managed to translate that no pressure, training ground casual excellence into match day execution.

    I suspect some kind of mass team hypnosis where the Spanish equivalent of Derren Brown makes them all believe that there’s no one watching so anything goes. And then when they come off the pitch he says, back in the room and is this your watch sir?

    Iniesta is SO underrated. The pass from Messi wasn’t as spectacular as it normally is but Iniesta was able to make a masterpiece out of it. Love that guy!

    Hahaha, I bet EA Sports frequently refers to “the lovely game of football.”
