4 games left and nothing to play for but pride.

Iniesta and Milito are both out due to injuries.

Probable line-up:
Valdes
Zambrotta-Marquez-Puyol-Abidal
Touré
Xavi-----Deco
Messi-----------Bojan
Eto'o

there is more to play for than just pride. there is a chance to put valencia in the second division :)

besides we have to be fair to other teams whom we thumped. what i mean is say we've beaten Murcia who are fightin with valencia for relegation.... we have to give our all against Valencia.

but things dont work like that in reality :)

Not only this Barça have to get second place. This is of utmost importance and would avoid a potentially dangerous Euro qualifier with the chance of doing an Inter against Helsingborgs, especially with a new and experimental team.

This is actually wrong. We have a lot to play for. We need 4 more points to secure a CL spot. Racing, just now at 5th place are 8p after us.

4 more points! With our recent form I wouldn't take anything for granted. Forget about 2nd place, not our priority imo, a CL spot is.

Come on! If this was the league title in play we would all be up for it and following Vil.lareal's matches. So let's be realistic, lower our sights (not our support) and go for it.

I wouldn't mind playing CL qualifier if it means the team could skip some of the PR tours that the board certainly has planned.

Don't forget Euro '08 as well as if the players weren't knackered enough...

True. Euro '08 and tours would be even tougher.

I don't know about you guys but I'm really worried. The team has choked all season so far. It's not impossible that we lose points on Sunday against Valencia, they will fight for their lives. Then we have el Clasico on Wednesday. Can we expect points in that match? Hardly.

4 more points!

Beating both Valencia & Madrid?

Anything is possible in football. Hopefully now that Barca are out of the CL this will spur them on to get 2nd spot....

We can lose both matches as well. Hopefully they will be motivated now, but I wouldn't take anything for granted. I'm scared as hell until we get those 4 points. :scared:

Only bright side is that Villarreal seem to bottle it when under real pressure...

Pride is a big reason and there is still a lot left in us.

C'mon Barça, play with our heads held high!

we dont need to look above to villareal, but down to Racing and co....

i personally dont see us get 4 more points, actually i would be surprised if we get 1 win out of our remaining matches... uefa cup is a very real possibility, we have everything to play for!
