Well Pep was going to shaft Eto'o in the summer, and he would have then played Henry as a striker which would have left room on the left hand side of the attacking 3 for Hleb.Hleb may have been a dribbler but unfortunaley he was just not alert and consistent enough in the final third to provide that killer pass.
Playing well for 1/3 of the season is not good enough. He played very well in the milan game last season..... only that one stands out in the memory.
ps : it's still a mystery to me at least why barca bought him....they are overflowing with midfielders in that position IMO. anyone know or care why?
How many games has he started for Barca this season?
