Not a fan of Barcelona tbh, it's boring football and they really struggle to get forward momentum without Messi. Yes they can pass it backwards or sideways a lot but it isn't fun to watch.
This season Borussia Dortmund have been playing some incredible football, really entertaining to watch and their passing is much more attacking focused. They should have beaten Real in the Group stages and absolutely dominated Man City
You're in a very small minority with that opinion. You may have your own personal opinion, nothing wrong with that but most experts, players, and coaches will tell you that they are the most exciting team to watch since Sacchi's Milan.
I can definitely appreciate that I might be in a minority, but from an entirely subjective study – friends, people I come in contact with day to day - I find there is an increasing feeling that they play a "boring" style of football.
I know that from a technical point of view it is incredible, but I find the small sideways passing boring. I also think that they are getting found out, teams are learning how to combat it and there are several ways - Chelsea's sit back and defend or Madrid's speedy wide play to name a few that have been successful recently. Most of their big scores rely on getting an early goal and teams having to chase the game, which plays into their hands. Their inability to change their style of play has cost them.
