What do u guys think on how Rikjaard(whatever) will use the new signings in on the team
I think:

---------------------V. Valdes--------------------

Zambrotta----------Thuram-------Marquez---------Gio

---------------------------Xavi------------------------

-------------Deco----------------------Gudjonsson-----

--------Messi---------------------------Ronaldinho----

--------------------------Eto'o---------------------------
a 4-3-3

I'm sorry but this defence line is silly.. Why in hell would you bench the best defender in spain (at least that's what I think)?? alright maybe for the sake of Marquez Puyol can play RB and then Zambrotta on LB and Thuram, Marquez CB's.. like this:

---------------------V. Valdes--------------------

Puyol----------Thuram-------Marquez---------Zambrotta

---------------------------Xavi------------------------

-------------Deco----------------------V. Bommel/Gudjonsson-----

--------Messi---------------------------Ronaldinho----

--------------------------Eto'o---------------------------

Laso Van Bommel has been doing a great job in that position, maybe Rikjaard will keep playing him in that role. or just do this:

Zambrotta----------Thuram-------Puyol---------Gio

---------------------------Marquez------------------------

-------------Deco--------------------------Xavi-----

Thuram----------Puyol-------Marquez---------Zambrotta/Sylvinho

---------------------------Xavi------------------------

-------------Deco----------------------Iniesta----------------

--------Messi---------------------------Ronaldinho----

--------------------------Eto'o---------------------------

bench: Gudjonsson, Van Bommel, Sylvinho, Gio Van Bronkhorst, Jorquera, Oleguer, Giuly


Gudjonsson can be subbed at nearly any place, Iniesta controls the game better then Van Bommel, Sylvinho's good but Zambrotta's better, same as Sylvinho, Jorquera is nowhere near Valdes :), Oleguer is nowhere near Puyol/Marquez and Giuly's good but I prefer Messi.

I like your formation G-Unit-Freestyler. It is a very good one and you are right about oleguer. I like him alot and the fans love him because he is a real catalan, the only problem with him(in my eyes) is that he isnt as good in attack so when he goes up the wing sometimes he cant help as much, but I think Thuram can play as a RB because he has played there before in his career. Giuly is good too but messi dribbles better and is almost as fast as Giuly. You are right about Gudjonsen he is very polyvalent and can play practically in any position so I think thats a very good formation. Now it all depends on some individual qualities and how the coach will want his side to play. The players' fitness will be important too.

Gio might make the starting lineup, but I prefer Thuram/Puyol playing even though their both primarily CB's. It's the same formation as they used to play, just new players. Giuly, Gudjohsson, Gio can be subs.

Obviously it's hard to leave out great players such as Iniesta, Gudjonsson, Olegueur etc but that would be my team. 4-3-3, with ronaldinho and Messi licensed to roam. Will be tough for Barca this year, saw them play against Celta Vigo yesterday and although they won, they weren't entirely convincing.

well messi and ronaldinhos jobs arnt to rme thye are to stay outwide i know this because we play the same formation. The midfield goes like 1 defensive midfielder (xavi) and 2 attacking mostlikly deco and iniesta/van bommel and they r compact in the middle

Messi still has to proved a lot before he would be the starter, So the formation will be varied and the starters would probably be the one that made the starting last season. The new faces would be subtituted and has to proved themselves worthy of starting.
