...i could vomit when i think about sylvinho replacing him...one of the worsest in our squad...

It's gonna be Puyol to replace him, so no problem here.
But I'd like to see Sylvinho in some games, he's still a good player and gives us more power on the left side.

this season's getting tougher by th day... defeat yesterday plus the injury to the only proper left back we have... Guardiola has to start weaving some magic atleast wit the players he has...

In my opinion one of the worst injuries we could get. Why? Because we don't have a backup for him. Sylvinho is too old, too bad and too offensive to play that position. Puyol is not very good out there either.

All you Abidal-haters out there, now we will see if he is a vital part of this team or not. Im convinced he is. Only injuries that would be worse would be Alves/Puyol/Xavi/Messi.

Agree with SimonP, but in his list must be Iniesta to. I'm shure that if we would have him in yesterday game the result would have been diferent, even with injured Abidal!

Puyol played very well there the last time Abidal was injured.
In my opionen our capitan was even stronger than Abidal out there, 'cause he's able to do something in the offense, not only in defense.

Well... Sylvinho is not bad. He can strenthen the attack on the left side... But I would prefer playing Pique or Caceres on the left because: 1. During the game, we play with three CBs while Alves pushes up 2. They both can push up 3. Pique keeps the ball pretty well.

Well its obviously one a great loss. in this season his services were satisfactory ..

puyol performance as leftback, although a satisfactory level of what the defensive is concerned but not offensive!

sylvinho isn that bad..he did a satifactory job so far..he is still a part of this team and did helped to win some games...

...the truth is puyol could be an option,but it seems he lost his feeling for that position because of his long-time-center-back-playing,not as in the past when he started as a wingback on the right...but to think about sylvinho is ridiculous...sorry,but when people see anything positive 'bout him,i have to disagree totaly...as a defender his nothing,for the offense too weak...driblings into dead areas to bring bad high or low imprecisely passes...with him,it's like ten vs. twelve and when you also got henry on this side,it's suicide...don't know when he ever brought something good into our squad,except one time he scored just to lose the game afterwards...i'm sure time will tell us and hopefully (but unthinkably) proves me wrong 'bout him...ONE LOVE!!!!!BARCA FOREVER,so or so!!!!!
