Well, it looks certain that Davids will join Barcelona very soon. What in your opinion with this new adquisition should be the standard line-up (if there is such a thing with this coach). Please, remember to choose only 11 players :D. Apart from the votes it would be interesting to give a tactical formation.

Davids

Kluivert Saviola


Davids as the single pivot....Iniesta in a withdrawn role helping out Davids in the centre plus getting those clinical passes thru the middle...Overmars as the genuine right winger and Ronaldinho as the drifting left winger cutting in now and then...Kluivert and Saviola doing the finishing :)

Interesting one. The problem is will your team have enough goalscoring ability? (with a normal coach, not this one, obviously).

Bernhard your lineup looks a bit too defensive...weve only got Ronnie, Kluivert and Savi as the offensive players:)

ÉÃMadridistaÉÃ we have a bunch of budding youngsters in the squad...ill jot down their names with their positions for your convenience

Oscar Lopez - Typical left back but was also used as a right back by Rijkaard in the USA tour in the summer. In his first full season in the A team.

Andres Iniesta - Debuted for Barca almost a year back under Van Gaal. Hasnt been able to cement a place on the bench even but supposed to be a great attacking midfielder. One to watch out for in the future.

Victor Valdes - Started out in the A team last season under Van Gaal. Has a bit of a disciplinary record. Acclaimed to be the next big thing in the Spanish GK rows.

Fernando Navarro - Started out in the A team last season under Van Gaal and cemented his place in the first 11 after Sergi's departure. Reliable left back whos major asset is his positioning. Tends to lack a bit in speed. Horrible injury curtailed his season last year. Hasnt made a comeback since then.

Sergio Garcia - Debuted in the A team under Van Gaal last season. Had to train with the B team thou. Excellent performances in the Under 20 WC as a striker led for calls for him to be included in the A team on a permanent basis. Ending up in his calling to the A team.

Sergio Santamaria - Right sided winger who was supposed to be the next big thing in Spain. Hasnt lived upto the expectations going out on loan on numerous occassions in the past. Surprised everyone by being a part of the squad in the beginning of this season.

Oleguer Presas - Central defender who debuted last season under Van Gaal. Hasnt got a decent run in the team yet so difficult to say about his chances in the big team. Recent departure of Pat Andersson resulted in him being counted by Rijkaard as a squad player in the team.

Ramon Ros - Defensive midfielder who toured with the team to the USA in the summer. Hasnt earned enough playing time to earn himself a superkid tag but commentaries and opinions liken him to be quite a decent player. In his first season in the A team.

Albert Joquera - Acting as stand in to Rustu and Valdes as the third GK. Toured the USA with the first team earning himself a spot on team sheet for a match as well. Currently in his first season in the senior team.

Yes, I´m aware of that husain....
I was thinking that if Gabri keeps looking out for Reiziger, then Puyol is released whith the task of constantly waiting for positional mistakes by Reiziger. Puyol on the other hand could concentrate on guarding Marquez.....those were my thoughts. But I´m also not so pleased whith my own lineup...

On paper looks like it would only work on CM. However the idea is that the back 6 cover the arses of the front 4 the whole match. The width on the left would be supplied by Ronaldinho going out wide and the right by either davids or Gabri getting forward.

We have the partnership of Iniesta and Ronaldinho as double playmakers while ronnie can also go forward to support the front two while saviola and kluivert will partner eachother in attack

As we all see,it's obvious we prefer two genuine defenders as our central back duo and no midfielders in that place.

A lot of interesting line-ups,Maz i would like to see your line-up with Riquelme in Iniesta's place
