Only problem : how the BarÃ§a can play like the real BarÃ§a (70% ball possession, high pressing...) ?
it works easily if you practise it a bid and are able to play the style generally... to me it works perfectly well

why? Dani Alves and Abidal move up to penetrate the wings, the CM and AM move around the box and Xavi's the backbone to pass to if things get complicated...
Giff wrote:What happens when I pass around with the ball is that Mess, Henry and sometimes EtoÂ´o get stuck in the penalty area. At the same level as the goal area and the penalty spot. They donÂ´t back out like they do on real, so I dont know if the offensive arrows are right.
I disagree there... you will rarely if ever find all 3 of them inside the box... its usually Henry moving towards the center, Eto'o somewhere waiting for his chance and Messi a bid outside the box offering himself up for a one-two

Sometimes I can dribble quite good with Messi, but as soon he come in some sort of contact with a defender does he fall over. Often when I get passed a defender does he stretch out his leg and Messi falls to the ground, I get a free kick but if he just staid on his feet would I have a better oppertunity.
its true that its very difficult with Messi but you need to use him wisely and really study his play on the game... it does work but nobody said that it has to be easy to play with him, he's still the most lethal weapon there and I got used to him too and its very enjoyable

the tactic mentioned above with that A/A, auto-attack, Pressing, Offside-Trap and try to pressure as much as you can, don't try to attack but keep the ball... that style is only recommanded if you really know how to defend and play games that last atleast 15 minutes, you shouldn't rush things playing with Barcelona but enjoy it and be tactically aware of what happens...
oh... and if Puyol doesn't play CB take care because he's the key and at the same time the biggest weakness in your defence
