loool Barca. Outside of the Messi era, they've been poverty in Europe for a club of their size.

They couldn't win the European Cup with Luis Suarez and Laszlo Kubala in the late '50s and could only get into the European Cup once with Cruyff. It took until the 1991-92 season with players like Stoichkov, Koeman, Guardiola, and Zubizarreta to finally win, and even then, they only managed it once. The Messi era is responsible for 80% of their European Cups/Champions Leagues.

However, Laporta has already rebuilt them once, and they'll eventually be back to being respectable. Will need a new manager first though. Wonder what superstars Laporta will go after once he gets their finances in order.

^ Came across a stat on Twitter that Barca's leading goal-scorer in the UCL since 16/17 is Messi with 37 goals. Their second top scorer in that competition? Own Goal with 8 goals. :lol:

UEFA corruption in Bruges?

Paredes lost the ball, then took out De Ketelaere who was clean through on goal Marquinhos was never going to catch CDK, yet Paredes remains on the field.

PSG should be down to 10 men, but certain teams have to progress to the knockout stages for commercial reasons, it seems.

As I type this, PSG score. Controversial to say the least.

Salah penalty saved

They've had chances galore. Proper chances. Not 30 chances v Norwich type ones
