what kind of formation do u think they will use now that they have milito?
Will they play 2 strikers or 1 and Murinho says he will give Quaresma another chance.

I think they have to go to 2 strikers imo, espescially if they want to use Eto'o strengths properly.

But who knows with Murinho. I forgot, he considers himself a genius.

The problem with Etoo is that he is an attention whore, he cant stand that Messi, Xavi and Iniesta are the fan favourites and him thats scores all the goals is not the most popular.

I like his character, but he can be a cancer in the bench and thats why Guardiola doesnt want him.

I like the move, nobody knows how much Henry has left in the tank so Ibra con get some time in his spot too and also gives Bojan timen to develop. The deal is not 100% sure though.

They are scary.

Belsius, one of the main reasons why i will be rooting for Barca is just to watch them take down Madrid from now on.

Henry's age and his health will catch up to him.

Bojan is a damn fine player and even they just insert him into the line up they'll be fine.

For me it's exactly the other way around. I hate that little Argentinian Diego-wannabe. Go Real!

Ironically I didn't like Real with all my fellow countrymen in the team. Just don't like 'm.

hehe, If Real gets Xabi Alonso, and apparently its almost a done deal, not even Barsa will stop us.

Casillas, Albiol, Ramos, Pepe, new wing, Xabi, Lass, Kaka, Ronaldo, one of Higuain/Sneijder/Robben, Benzema.

I fucking love the Xabi/Lass midfield.

On a side note, my cousin will come from the US to watch the Champions League Finals in Bernabeu and theres a good chance he will pay for my ticket too.

Thats awesome. I would love to go to the champions league finals....and root for Barca.

But yeah, a midfield of Xabi and Lass does kick ass.

Barca also got Maxwell, dont know if thats been posted. Got him for less than 5 million euros.

If Real Madrid can mesh and develop nice chemistry, I think they are better than Barcelona. Barcelona has great strikers and I don't think they should get rid of Eto. Let him gel with Messi. Madrid FTW.

I think thats what makes xabi alonso such a big factor. Hes the perfect piece that will make everything work. Such an offensive team needs a midfield that brings a lot of stability. That being not turning the ball over, making easy and intelligent passes and defending. The duo of Lass and xabi is perfect for that job. They are not the most flashy but I can count with one hand the times I have seeing Lass lose the ball, he is Makelele but with better quality. Those two guys passing the ball to Kaka to be the creator of the last pass before the goal will (could) be sick.

Xabi will provide stability. He will be the Xavi of Madrid. Do you know anymore rumors of players going to Madrid because i would be very dissapointed and surprised if Van Der Vart and Heinze return for next season.

A 4-2-3-1 formation for madrid is perfect. Cassilas - Left back - Pepe- Albiol - Ramos- LAss- Xabi - Robben - Kaka - Cristiano - Benzema/Heinze

Premiership is much better, I agree. Hopefully Arsenal is back in the mix this year.
