Deep Thought Of The Day

You know what's worse than taking a lead and then relinquishing it? Doing it twice. And you know what's worse than that? Having one of the leads you give up be a two-goal one. And you know what's worse than that? Giving up a lead with two minutes to go.

Barcelona have now failed to win in four games (two losses, two draws). Four -- incidentally -- also happens be the number of points that now separates Barca from Real. It was twelve two weekends ago.

Gulp.

I am still not worried ..barca will come thru this patch..it was bound to happen, they can't just play sublime football all year long.

I agree that they can't play sublime football for the whole year, so on that bit I'm with you. But I disagree with your sanguine assessment of where this is going: I'm not super-worried but this is a veritable dip in form. You can't just scoff at 4 non-wins in a row, and another 3 games in a week coming up (Mallorca in the Copa del Rey, Bilbao in the League, Lyon in the CL). If they don't pull it together soon, the Copa del Rey could be the only trophy they win this season.

O c'mon bro!..look at REAL ..they were sucking for the whole first half and now they are playing good and barca is going thru just the opossite...I do think they will be ok ..its just a bad streak hopefully...its just my luck...lol...the teams i love the most (barca , lvrpool , arsenal) are sucking these days and the teams i hate from the bottom of my heart (MAN U, REAL MADRID) are resurgent!..talk abt irony...
