Just wanted to discuss how will barca be playing next year, pls feel free to merge with any other thread...

Till now its not really clear what formation will Pep be using, most probably it will be 4-3-3, but u might have a lot of changes from the way we were playing last year..

So below are my thoughts:

---------------GK--------------------
-RB------CB----------CB----------LB-
---------DM---------DM-------------
--------------AM--------------------
------RW------------------LW-------
--------------CF---------------------

And below is the most probable line-up:

---------------Valdes-----------------
-Alves---Puyol-------Caceres---Abidal-
---------Toure------Keita-------------
---------------Xavi-------------------
---Messiah--------------Iniesta-------
--------------Henry-------------------

Subs:

GK: Pinto
RB: Caceres, puyol
CB: Maruquez, Pique
LB: Sylvinho
DM: Marquez
AM: Iniesta
RW: Bojan "Not the best option as he is more a striker than a winger"
LW: Bojan "Not the best option as he is more a striker than a winger"
CF: Bojan

I am assuming that Roni, Etoo, Deco, Gudy are leaving....

Areas needing reinforcement:

DM / CM: Moutinho -> rotating with Keita and Toure
LW + RW: Mancini?? "Assuming Henry will be playing upfront"

So I guess we still have two players to add, I wont mind Moutinho and Mancini, although I wish Sam stays :moan:

You're having the best summer of any top club in Europe so far.

Do you think Caceres will start straight away, though? When is Milito due back?

Imo Caceres will bench one of Milito or Puyol later on, Puyol's form been a bit worrying in the past season.

Moutinho and Villa should be next.

No doubt.

Barca got several wanted players like Eto'o (30m?), Deco (10m), Ronaldinho (20-30m), Eidur (6-10m).. Those players got very high salaries too

Off their wages list already Thuram (high salary), Edmilson and Zambrotta (9m and high salary), GdS (6m)..

Aye, just I think they need to get rid of them before reinvesting the money.

I don't think GDS will have had a salary worth noting.

I think Caceres will start especially if Marquez is sold.

I also doubt Moutinho will join just to warm the bench.

If you guys really feel that Henry is good enough to start upfront alone then I feel you are misplacing your trust. The guy is over the hill and I feel he will only get worse. At best I would play him along another striker like Eto'o, Berbatov, Drogba, etc... However I think it would be best if you used him as a sub.

It feels good to write down Dani on the right, now huh? :D

Think it's a good team but I've never been very sold on Cáceres, he had a couple of really good showings, but still has to become a lot more consistent in my oppinion.

Not saying he's a finished product, it's still a long way to go though and he does have a great fighting spirit, good technically and stable in the air.

-----------Henry------------
Hleb--------------------Messi
-----------------------------
----Keita------Iniesta/Xavi---
------------Yaya------------
-----------------------------
Abidal------------------Alves
------Márquez----Puyol------
-----------------------------
------------Valdés-----------

I dont think Cáceres will be a starter right away, when you have Márquez in the squad, and from what I heard, Guardiola rates Márquez.

Looks like a 4-4-2 which looks more balanced than franks 4-3-3

looking at the first post in this thread it seems the players would fit better in a 4-4-2 than the 4-3-3 listed
