It's football, not an Alien Invasion!!! >> Read My Mind


Guardiola: 'The truth is that we were slower than we normally are in moving the ball around, which is our strong point, but we did try to take control, which is something that happens when you are playing so many games'

Guardiola: 'FC Barcelona were lacking fluidity against Granada'

Guardiola: 'The truth is that we were slower than we normally are in moving the ball around, which is our strong point, but we did try to take control, which is something that happens when you are playing so many games'

Guardiola: 'With the score at just 0-1 anything could have happened. With a single goal and playing 11 against 10 and you still can’t get the second, you play with a bit of fear because you feel you have to get that second. It’s not that we played badly, but we were lacking fluidity – that happens sometimes'

Guardiola: 'I want to congratulate Granada on their return to the top flight after so long. It was nice to be here at this stadium with the atmosphere there was here. They played at a good level and have some very good players. I’ve been studying them a lot over the last few days and it’s true that they have stood up to every team they’ve played'

- Every top team or sportsman around the world has dips in form, regardless of the sport. Look at the current LA Lakers, Rafa Nadal or Fernando Alonso. They undoubtedly have the class to win it all but there are many factors that can affect the outcome of a sporting season.

In Barça's case, I feel it's a matter of extraordinarily high fan expectation which is directly caused by our recent success. If Messi doesn't score for 3 matches, it seems worse than a bloody Alien Invasion - Give the guy a break!

Let's take things one step at a time: Teams play football to win matches. As far as I know, we WON the game against Granada. Maybe not in the normal impressive fashion, but it doesn't matter that much - nobody will remember how our 99 (or however many we get) points were won if we lift the La Liga trophy.

KEEP CALM AND TRUST THE PEP TEAM!!!!!!!!
