And he was also proabably the only attacker that didn't engage in all that play acting crap. My respect for him has actually gone way up after that tie.
He took going behind so well.

Classico's can bring out the diver in players who usually don't, but Busquets is just as bad in every match he plays.

I think Pepe was going down ridiculously easy to make some sort of statement about how he felt victimised by Barca's thatrics in previous encounters. He's a rough and tumble guy who, in general, doesn't hit the deck all that often.
Will he get the Busquets treatment now too ?

Uefa need to stamp out this cheating that is tarnishing the game,its gone on far too long and isnt tolerated in any other sport.
Anyone found simulating or feigning injury should get an immediate 3 match ban .
Anyone harassing a ref or seeking a booking for an opponent should receive a red card.
Players wont be long getting the message .

Credit to Barcelona for finding a way to win the tie on a night when they really never got going. That is now just 1 win in 14 games for Real Madrid against Barcelona since Guardiola took over. An amazing stat. It will be interesting to see how Real Madrid do in their next few games as they really could not have played much better yesterday and yet they still get knocked out.

Pepe once again at it at the end as well going after the ref as if he cost them the game. He and his team mates should look a bit closer in the mirror first. If Higuain had not held him back I think he probably would have got himelf a red card after the final whistle.

I actually think Madrid came out of that with a lot of credit, they battled hard, were very unlucky not to win on the night and showed that they're well able to go into the Camp Nou and get a result. If anything, last night's match showed to me why i think Madrid will win the league, they could well go into the clasico in April with Barca needing a win to stay in the title race and be able to get a draw. I also liked that they threw the old antifootball gameplan out for the match and took Barca on at their own game.

Really it is a sad indictment of the man. The sooner he leaves Spain the better. Off with him back to England I say.

Jesus Barcelona fans really are truning into the new United fans, so blind to your own team its all you can see.

Crying like a litle girl, yeh he showed anger when his team when went behind would you rather he shrugged his shoulders and said so what to himself?

A player showing anger at going behind shows to me hes cares if his team win or loose, thats bad thing now?

Now im not Ronaldos biggest fan in general but in this instance youre talking about you are talking out of your one eyed barcelona hole.

And yet it shows his passion, his ruthlessness and his forward thinking that he is willing to wait there for a ref to come out so he can speak to him.

Maybe thats a big part of the reason he is so successful.

True. After that game last night, Madrid must surely feel like they could beat Barca if they meet again.

It's a bit like the City-Utd game in the FA cup. Even though City and Madrid were both knocked out, their performances will possibly give them belief down the home stretch of the season.
