Barcelona, Messi and the anti-Assad Movement- Telegraph

You can’t make this up.

Barcelona accused of being part of an anti-Assad plot by Syrian TV with the clue, apparently, in their formations

But unlike other fields of forensic over-analysis such as Beatles lyrics, the moon landings and the queen’s similarity to a lizard, in-depth tactical pontificating has until now been kept from the clutches of the world’s lovably bonkers conspiracy theorists. Not any more.

A state-owned Syrian TV channel has claimed that analysis of Barcelona’s formation “represents arms smuggling routes”.

Al Dunya TV believes that infinitely more reputable media outlet Al-Jazeera Sport was “distorting the facts” in their post-match breakdown of Real Madrid v Barcelona last December.
