Giuly! no way, he won't be benched. I am sure the board figured out that we need a deeper squad, and we need quality backup players, and not some reserve palyers from Barca B. Van Bommel is a quality player, I am sure he will rotate with Xavi and Deco, I am sure that Rijkaard will experiment with him in the defensive midfielder position at first.

Ofcourse, that is if he signs for us!

Mark van Bommel is a physical midfielder, not an attacker like Giuly. I think much will depend on the opponent and the fighting spirit of the squad. He's physical and a leader when it comes to taking on a battle. IMO he'll be more influencial than Davids was last year...

That's what I'd go with if I were Riijkaard.

How cut and dried is this? Last reports I heard made it sound almost certain that Van Bommel was about to sign for Tottenham. They're being linked with Rosicky now though so perhaps this has something to do with it.

I think having Van Bommel in Barca is good, he can rotat with Deco and Xavi, and we also could have a good sub for the CM position.

yet, I want to have Gerrard from Liverpool, I'll feel sick if I see him sign for Madrid :(

man Gerrard is a great leader, and he can play as DM, just watch liverpool games, and you'll know what I'm talking about.


Visca el Barca :strong: :heart:

I don't want Gerrard. He scores a lot of goals, but he can't built the game as Xavi or Deco, he's much more chaotic. I don't care if he signs for Madrid. The "Spanish midfields" are not the English midfields. He would be another Beckham. I would be "afraid", if they signed Lampard, who is extraordinary, but not Gerrard.

It's not like there was big use for real wingers. Barça score most of the goals through the middle, due to Ronaldinho's and Deco's sheer genius ;)
