How many goals did Messi score this season?

Barca have at least one advantage, they play in La Liga where you get more time on the ball , and plus they posses so well they make everyone else chase them, something like 70% possesion against ManU.....

yet in america possesion is underrated and we still look for "athletes" who can run up and down the pitch like chickens with their heads cut off

what happened to Juve's fitness coach? I didn't have access to football in the early 90's as I grew up in America

I'm assuming you mean pref. enhancing things...
That's exactly what I asked: How on earth can they possess and recover the ball that fast? They are so quick on and off the ball, once they lose the ball they run so fast the opposite clubs don't have time to pass the ball and they repossess it. It's amazing how they are doing it, there's no other club like that and even by running that much they still look fresh.

As for the Juve's coach (and Juventus team at all) read below:

I'm an arsenal fan and poeple say they play like Barca but Arsenal's work rate off the ball isn't nearly as good.

That's one thing that's often overlooked when talking about FC Barcelona: how good their defensive work is. They chase the ball like maniacs the second they lose it. I think they actually are able to rest a bit when they posséss the ball .
