This is how you beat Barcelona

Everyone salivated at that wonderful second half performance by Barcelona last night, and rightly so.

A few thoughts though - Ryan Giggs finally achieved the anonymity he craved all week. The number 19 also corresponded with the number of touches United players had on the ball in the last 45 minutes.

But it also brought back a memory of how Barcelona can be beaten. The report is here.

That was probably the last Rovers match I attended before emigrating given that I moved from London to Dublin one month later. Interesting how the memory fades - I would have sworn we drew 3.3 until I read the full article. Nostalgia - thing of the past!
