Video shows Pepe did not touch Alves, plus a collection of Barca's disgraceful antics during last night's El Classico.
I like barca but that was pathetic
... but it seems that in all the BIG matches they lower themselfs to these cheap tactics to get opponents sent off.
It's disgraceful and it's unworthy of the legacy of Cruyff.
barca shines only against low class teams yes i get it people like barcelona but more of the new fans only do cz they are obsessed with messi or because when they beat the low class teams they win by a lot of goals or just cz its the friggen name to like nowadays... but this is how they act every time they play a team that has a great chance to win, like real madrid, and trust me they will act the same against man u Real Madrid beat them the game before so they had to resort to this? They are cheaters Honestly, yes the second goal by messi was excellent, but i think people can realize that if someone touched messi, while on that run, it wouldve been a definite red card... more acting and diving wouldve occured... oh and not only were they diving but whenever someone dived everyone on the team would surround the referee, including the goalie, asking him to give out cards... seriously?! I love real madrid! i think they got cheated out... but we will come back, we have a young team! we have class! i love liverpool so i would never cheer for man u in a final, but i really hope they win... because i can appreciate real football and in this past games one can see man u is playing real football, not any of this diving shit... ....so cant believe i'm saying this... united we stand... EDIT: OH AND I'M EXPECTING A BUNCH OF DISAGREES FROM BARCELONA FANS... YOU GUYS PROBABLY THINK ITS FUNNY THAT YOU WON BY DOING THIS BUT IT DISGRACES FOOTBALL, AND GIVES MORE PEOPLE REASON TO BELIEVE SOCCER IS FOR SISSIES/GIRLYMEN ETC
Really HxCgamer. Ronaldo used to be my favorite player in the world untill he starterd using these same kind of tactics. Diving and complaining at balls he would lose. Get a life. Real plays hard but over do it. Regardless of pepe not touching alves he still had his cleets up in the air which according to the rules. The ref can give a red if he deems proper. Stop pretending like your team don't do the same. believe u are just upset over your team getting out played in 2 of the 3 matches. I am a man u supporter. So I hope they win. But if you think the game got ruined by the refs u a are dillusional. U lost because your team didn't play Real Madrids football. end of stroy.
busquets should get a ban or at the least a fine for that.
Thats not the only time he did something pathetic like this. For some reason Busquets face looks like you just want to smack your fist into his eyeballs.
Disgusting to football, Jose is right, I would be ashamed if i won like that. I can't believe im saying this, but I hope united win.
If they were the greatest team in the world they would not need to resort to cheating tactics. Perhaps the greatest team... at cheating.
To be fair, pictures also showed that Nani had a huge gash on his shin after Carragher's tackle - http://www.manutd24.com/wp-... Which turned out to be just blood stains from the small puncture at the top - http://www.visa2tour.com/wp... Pictures can be used for or against any situation depending on how the person wants you to see it.
how does it explain the 2 weeks he had to take off.
You're right, doctor. Huge muscle gashes 4-inch wide and an inch deep only need 2 weeks to heal. (BTW, I want whatever super-medicine they're using at United.)
Barca is all crap.....they have no honour and does not deserve to win with all the cheating.....
Mourinho is right......! Barca needs to play football and stop the show of shame.......
"Barca needs to play football"? Stuffing 11 men in your own penalty box for a majority of the match is "playing football"? By that logic, Arsenal were the best football players in the history of the Champions League and they totally deserved to win 50-0 against Barca at Camp Nou.
Yeah but Arsenal dont have Messi, when Barca can't find a way through, they turn to Messi to break the deadlock. His 52 goals this season is an incredible achievement especially considering most of them are wonder goals. He's single handedly carrying them this season, and when Barca nor Messi can get passed a good defence, they have to resort to getting a player sent off from the opposition, then the game opens up for them. You might not have noticed it but it's a pathetic tactic they have been using in the past few years and I'm getting sick of it.
I'm so sick of Sergio Busquets. Someone needs to actually stomp on his face so he can actually feel pain. I still remember this disgraceful behaviour against Inter last year to get Motta sent off. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Motta missed the Champions League Final thanks to this cheat, thankfully justice was done in the end.
lmao i like his little peak to see if his dive was working. it was like a little peek-a-boo look. lmao
Well, now it seems that maybe the video has some tricks in it. Some people say that the video of pepe was manipulated. I'll just leave this here: http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... They already did it before with images... you don't even know what to believe...
I am sorry but thats a sad accuse for a video analysis, yes I can speak Spanish. This guy had no clue what he was talking about.
this is not just with barca, this entire sport is made up of these cheap childish,anti sportsmenship tactics
Messi is a great player and barca are a great team, but some of the things that go their way is madness, united get the same treatment in premier league tbh.
Rooney gets away with elbowing people in the back of the head, kicking people.
Ruins the game tbh.
even if he didn't touch it( something i don't believe ) ..since when leaping your 2 foot in the air at an opponent is acceptable ?
pepe was aiming for the ball... the play doesnt even look threatening to me... im tired of these actors... i wanna see real footballers
"the play doesnt even look threatening to me" the reason it was in the field was to be treatening .. i mean did you see the first two matches ? pepe was obviously there to play rough and hard
You call this a sport??? I call it acting.
This video is manipulated.
lets have it right who set there team up to spoil and foul ? who loves all the attention? thats right Mourinho if the result had gone his way he would be all smiles. he trired to wind things up to spoil the game he got his wish but it backfired.
