Arrogant and Ignorant

Alves told The Guardian: "There is no doubt that was the hardest game we have played, with everything that was at stake, the moment and everything that happened.
"People say Chelsea could have won but for the referee but that is not our problem. We do not control the referees. We are there to play football, to compete and to try to reach the final. What can we do about the referee?
"Chelsea did not reach the final because of fear. The team that has got a man more, is playing at home and winning should have attacked us more. But of course, if you don't have that [attacking] concept of football that Barcelona have, you stay back and you get knocked out.
"You have to go forward. Stay back: losers. Go forward: winners. I think Chelsea lacked the courage to take a step forward and attack us. They paid for it."

Above is what Alves said regarding the last time Barca met Chelsea in the Champs league semifinal 2009. I find it distasteful especially when everybody except Barca saw how bad the ref did that night. 4 legitimate penalty was waved away. It was shameful but for Alves to rub mud into it shows how "classy" Barca are. It might be also a provocation/trap to manipulate how Chelsea is going to play. 

It might be Barca way of thinking "Stay back: losers. Go Forward: winners" but every team can do whatever they think will win the game especially when your leading. Very shallow opinion in my way of thinking. And how convenient Alves forgot how Inter Milan (with 10 men) defensive way made Barca lose in the year 2010. Some people are just arrogant and ignorant.

ps.. For the past few years when people are saying Barca the best team ever... all their Champions league title always had a significant controversial incident.
