|Man in a Desert||
Wow! What a masterly performance by Barcelona who absolutely crushed Real Madrid. It was a privilege to watch this Barcelona team play football which such class, determination and consummate skill.
On paper the two titans of Spanish football are evenly matched. What should have been an evenly matched game turned into a rout. At one point Barcelona put together a sequence of 30 consecutive, unchallenged passes!
As usual Lionel Messi was his brilliant self. Cristiano Ronaldo on the other hand was virtually a ghost on the pitch and showed yet again that distasteful unsporting side of his character. Actually, the Madrid club as a whole showed a vengeful character once it was obvious they were being outclassed.
The Spanish capital's club have a big job on their hands. They are now only 2 points behind Barcelona in La Liga and strong contenders for the Champions League title. But their manager, Jose Mourinho, who calls himself the "Special One" needs salvage the shattered pride of his devastated players and lift them from the humiliation that's just been inflicted upon them by the classy Barcelona.
A man on a long journey through a perpetual desert.
