How The 3-4-3 Beat Milan And Rethroned Barcelona As The World's Most Dangerous Team [Deadspin]

Deadspin writes: Well, this is awkward. Just two weeks ago many outlets, us sheepishly included, were shoveling dirt on top of Barça's reign as the world's best team. But following a string of terrible results—three losses in 11 days, once to Italian upstarts AC Milan and twice to bitter rivals Real Madrid—Barcelona answered. Last year's disappointment, losing to Chelsea in Champions League play and placing second behind Madrid in La Liga, had pundits wondering if their slide began even before this season kicked off. (AC Milan, Barcelona, Italian Serie A, Spanish Primera Division)

I never realized the importance of formation on the field. This really opened my eyes to stratagems involved.

Would be more impressed if it were actually against a worthy team. Yes I know two down is still pretty hard but AC Milan hasn't been anywhere near top class for a while. Lets see what they do next round.

They are sitting 13 points clear at the top of the league. That not impressive enough? The criticism Barcelona receive is hilarious. They only get that criticism because of the standard they have set themselves. Its Barcelona vs Barcelona when it comes to criticizing them.

Hes talking about milan, yes they scored 2-0 at home, but I showed the teams poor quality when they couldn't even score once! Heck arsenal nearly made a come back.

I think if Barca can play the way they did against Milan they will surely get through to the finals. Whether they have permanently left that little dip they were in or not remains to be seen against PSG, but if they have finally awaken, then judging this team by those 2 weeks of 3 losses against two big teams might be irrelevant. Also, Milan is Milan kids, not easy to come back losing 2-0 away and then not concede a single goal against them, surely we all know their history in the Champions League right?

Excuse me but how did this get approved? No offence, Sidology but were the people approving this not paying attention at all?

Anyway, Milan were horrible, used the wrong tactics, they couldn't pull a "Chelsea" and failed miserably and they were way too wasteful unlike Chelsea who were lethal when given the opportunity.
