Intersting question, i know.

We have had a great season thus far, success wise. Yet we have had one of the worst season in terms of injuries.

If everyone was fit what would be out best side to feild? Going by either form or overall abilty (specify if your team is current or overall).

I assume that's a joke, referring to our current squad because you only have 10 players there..

But anyway, here's mine.

-----------------Valdes--------------
Belletti-----Marquez----Puyol----Silvinho
------Deco----Edmilson-----Xavi
---Eto'o-----Larsson-----Ronaldinho

Subs:
Motta
Gio
Giuly
Iniesta
GK(not sure who)
I'd pick Silvinho ahead of Gio, simply because I think he offers us real width and decent crossing ability. Marquez at centre half and Edmilson as a defensive midfielder purely because of Edmilson's passing ability and skill on the ball.. but they're interchangeable really.

I think most of the other positions pick themselves except that I'd start Larsson ahead of Giuly, depending on the opposition. Giuly is not a wide player, and the sooner Rijkaard realises that, the better we'll be able to utilise him. We need a goalpoacher, and if Larsson had been given an extended run in the side, he would have proven to be that man.

Yes, I mean that we don't need 11 players to beat all:)
Of course, Marquez in defence, with Puyol

I don't know why some people are suggesting to replace Gio with Silvinho. Silvinho didn't fail to impress us whenever he got a chance. But Gio is playing some amazing football, always contributing in attack, giving us width, and covering for Ronaldinho. Plus, the guy scores goals!!! So until he plays really bad and has a bad run of form, I wouldn't replace him with Silvinho.

Something we have been suffering from this season, is our sub-par aerial defending, and I believe that Edmilson can help in this aspect, besides Marquez is doing really well in the defensive midfielder position, and we shouldn't alter something that's working.

Regarding Larsson, I think of him of a temporary solution, he will not be here after two seasons, where Eto'o and Giuly on the other hand will. They should be in the starting lineup to help them develop and better understand eachother, where Larsson should be seen as a short term solution. Ofcourse, that doesn't mean that he should start some games, and constantly get some playing time.

Seeing Marquez do so well in midfield, I'd put Edmilson in defence to partner Puyol. He can certainly play there. He's tall, good with headers, and can take the ball out for an attack.

Everything else looks pretty much the same.

That is by far our strongest side, with everyone fit and playing good football i have no doubt we can win titles.. Too bad we've seen so little of all these players playing together..
We need a new DM for Marquez to replace Oleguer at the back, and Edmilson is the best option, up front i would not change anything simply because when Giuly is 100% fit and adapts a little better to his wing postion, he will do wonders.. I just can't wait for all these players to play together (hopefully it will be at a latter stage in the CL :D)
