I'll be happy once Diarra doesn't play... if Guti plays that's a bonus.
You misunderstood me. Of course it's going to be Mellberg. It's actually a given with Salihamidzic and Zebina still out. By 'questionmark' and 'fill for Grygera', I meant to say that the Czech missing in action is a big, understated blow to our chances to contain Real Madrid's offences, particularly Robben's. It was just a little tribute to one of our unsung heroes whom IMO has easily been top 3 performers for us this season. That, and the fact that Mellberg isn't one whose presence on the pitch reassures me one bit.And Steph, Grygera's replacement isnt a question mark, its clearly Mellberg. Nothing of who is going to play is a question mark really, it will be Mahnigguh;Mellberg, Legro, Chiellini, Molinaro;Marchionni, Tiago, Momo, Pavel;Ale, Amauri. Writes itself basically.
Yes, how fantastic it'd be for you if last season's La Liga assist champion plays. :doh:I'll be happy once Diarra doesn't play... if Guti plays that's a bonus.
I must've been watching the wrong games then for I've never seen Guti justifying the widespread belief that when all else fails, he could be the messiah. If anything, he's always been letting you guys down on big nights.Yes, how fantastic it'd be for you if last season's La Liga assist champion plays. :doh:
I'm pretty sure some of the Real Madrid forum residents did. I was just taking the piss anyway, JoshBottom line, he had 17 assists in the league last year. 24 in all competitions. He's an outstanding playmaker and can rip any backline apart.
Nobody said Guti saves us when everything else fails, did we Steph? I simply refute the notion that it's a bonus if Guti plays since he is miles better in distribution than all of our midfielders from Sneijder to Van der Vaart to Gago, etc.
No, I dont know YOU anymore! :scream: :thmbdown:Osman.. You don't know Schuster..
PS.. I decided to go with FIFA
I think the big deal has pretty much died down. pIf I've to single out a Real midfielder I've never started to understand what the big deal is about, it has to be Gago. Obviously, the second-last sentence still stands.
