What kind of line-up would you do if you were coach and all the players were fit?

If I had to play against an agressive team, I would play with this;
Code:
           Valdes

Belletti Puyol Marquez Sylvinho

     Edmilson    Motta

            Deco 
                  Ronaldinho
      Giuly
           Larsson
Sylvinho's brilliant crosses, 2 defensive midfielders, more room for Deco as a playmaker and NO OLEGUER :jester: Also no Xavi because this is meant as an agressive line-up. I choose Larsson over Eto'o here because I think Larsson suits this line-up better.


If I had to play against a very defensive team, I would play with this;

Code:
           Valdes

        Puyol Marquez
Belletti                Gio
          Edmilson

            Deco 
   Giuly        Ronaldinho

       Eto'o  Larsson
Gio's powerfull shots on goal and an extra man (Eto'o) instead of Motta to torment the opponents defensive. Xavi could be used to give accurate passes to the attackers, but there's no room for him in this line-up, maybe I underrate him, but I think all players in front of Edmilson in this line-up are better then Xavi, so sorry :hangover:


Now what kind of line-ups would you do? (This is just fantasy, but against teams like Villarreal I'd like to play with a different line-up :) )

Yes it seems that we are always playing the same formation no matter what. I guess you can blame all the injuries for part of that since at the moment there isn't really much room for flexibility

Given the available players, how about this:
Code:
                Valdes

Belletti   Puyol    Oleguer   Sylvinho 

       Xavi    Marquez     Gio

           Deco   Ronaldinho 

              Eto'o

Hmm, it would strenghten us defensive.. No Giuly but well, he isn't play up to par recently.. I would do that if Giuly wasn't fit, but if he was I would put him in place of Deco, put Deco where Gio is, put Gio where Marquez is and put Marquez where Oleguer is, then we get rid of f*cking Oleguer!!!1

I wouldn't be so sure about that. The rules for latin-americans is that they have lived at least 2 years in Spain to be eligable for an EU-passport. You do the math. Would've been sweet to see Roman and Ronaldinho combining. Something like this:

---------------Valdes----------
Belletti----Marquez--Puyol---Gio
------Xavi---Edmilson--Deco---
--------Roman----Ronaldinho---
--------------Eto'o------------

I wonder how that would've worked out. The Energizer bunnies Belletti and Gio gives ample width. Similar to Milan's 4-3-2-1 formation...Oh well, just a thought, a little dream, in the formation thread. :)

Fargo, it takes 1 year after you applied for that passport to actually get it. Riquelme as far as I know hasn't applied and Ronnie, Eto'o and Marquez can apply this summer. You do the math. :tongue:

Get the FU(KIN Oleguer and Guily out of the team, Get Luis Garcia back and bring bojinov

unfortunatly we dont have anyone in the place of Oleguer because marquez is our DM right now. we need a strong DM , fielding xavi or gio at DM wont do us any good :nono:


-------------------Valdes----------------------
-belletti-----Puyol---------Oleguer-----Sylvinho-
------------------Marquez---------------------
-----------Xavi------------Gio-----------------

How do you know how long each process takes? Is this set in stone? Do you know if Riquelme has applied or do you just assume? If you don't know, why bother? I read the other day in Marca that Daniel Alves was going to apply for the passport in february and expected to have the passport before next season. When did Belletti apply? Or Sylvinho? I'm sure things can be worked out, just like things got worked out for us right at the deadline for this season.

Neither you or I know what's going to happen with the EU-passports status, so we can leave it with that. In the meantime, Riquelme is in my team if I were the manager. :)

I would be glad if Riquelme came to Barcelona for next season, but I just don't see it happening. Why I think its 1 year? Because I've read it several times in articles on EMD website. There was talk about letting our 3 non-EU players apply for a Spanish passport this summer and then they would get it by the summer after that so we could buy 3 more non-EU players.

I'm no Barca fan, but this would be my formation:

----------------------Valdes----------------------
---Belletti------Puyol---------Marquez----Sylvinho-
----------------------Edmilson--------------------
--------------Xavi-------------Deco---------------
-------Giuly------------------------Ronaldinho-----
----------------------Pichichi----------------------

As a rival fan, this would be the most intimidating Barcelona line-up for me to face, in my opinion of course.

I've always liked a 3 man CB defense. I think that would be a great lineup because we need stability in the back, and that doesn't occur when Gio, Belletti, Damia or whoever is at the full back position like to wander deep into attack. With 3 CBs, you have 3 committed defenders, AND you have Gio and Belletti who can track back and help also in that lineup. This will also give Ronnie the freedom that he needs to be more effective. Getting Adriano is a pipe-dream though.
