Already knew, don't like watching Barca's pre-season games though, they are painful to watch, especially if they play in the U.S. I remember when they were beat by Chivas or some crappy team like that here in the states, I think the coaches stress the importance of not getting injured to the players, so they play like crap.

True, but for Chivas it was an honor to play against Barca, they wanted to win because they had not much to lose.

Chivas is the team your Chicharito was in before arriving to Man U.
People usually dont Guadalajara is Chivas
