I can't think of any team I have ever seen that would have been able to live with Barcelona yesterday. They were better than the Spain side that won the World Cup (Messi lifts them to a different level and makes them far sharper in the last quarter of the field). I couldn't fall in love with their football like I could the Cruyff Dutch or the Platini/Giresse/Tigana French or the Socrates Brazilians, but what a team! Scary how they made Man U. (Rooney excepted) look old, slow and technically inadequate. When they needed to, they just pulled them out of shape. If you're the Manchester coach there's nothing you can say to your players except that they were well beaten by a better side. They're probably the second best team in Europe, but the best is out of sight.
