Talks on future Gudjohnsen in the summer

Asked about his statements that he's considering to leave in the summer (read more here), Barcelona attacker and Iceland international Eidur Gudjohnsen (30) has said to journalists that he has been misquoted:

"My words have been exaggerated and misunderstood. What I've said is that I'm very happy about this season but that, like every player, I would of course like to play more minutes.

But that doesn't really mean anything. I don't necessarily want to leave Barcelona, because I'm feeling very good here. There will be time to talk about my future during the summer, now some quotes have just been misunderstood. I made a comment that every other player could have made."

...please,please...do me a favour and send him away...can't take him anymore...it huuuurts,godamnit!!!!!...and let sylvinho,caceres and hleb go with him...sorry,but i never was a fan of all of them...they should free the places for some new,who at least have a little,some,must be not much,i know it's not xmas and time for wishes,but with players who at least can stop the ball and pass it,i would be fully satisfied...

@LeónDragón : Why Caceres? He's still young and hadn't much chance to prove himself. But I still believe, he has talent. A loan deal to club, that play football (not some "bunker" type of team like Recreativo) would be good for him.

I would also stick with Hleb, if we can't include him in deal with Ribery. However, I agree about Guddy and Sylvinho. They are all great profesionals, but don't have a quality to be here.

Great guy but he should go to make some space for a youth player. I mean: if for example thiago is promoted to the first team, would he add less than Gudjohnsen? I don't think so and the salary will be less and we'll have some fee for Gudjohnsen.

i think, if thiago is ready for the first team next season we can sell guddy!

...at anony...that thing for me about caceres is,that he seems very nervous and makes too many mistakes...sure,if we give him anywhere on loan he could develop and get experiance...but,there are sometimes characters that show their good enough even from the start...caceres could be talented,but when i see him how technical and easy and with fully care he's wetting his hair,style it and gives him full attention,i wish he would do care more on the pitch...btw to let him go now would also make us lose money...loan could be best...would be cool,if he proves me wrong,but don't believe he gets a big player for barca...

The funny thing with caceres is that he was out on loan last year. Villareal bought him and loaned him out. He looked good so barca bought him and now after another season we want to loan him out again.

Look guys Caceres could be amazing given the chance in my opinion we should start him in ever non major game to prove his woth. When he is on form there is no one like him no one. We just need to give him confidence and i think he will be a starter in no time seriously. I have seen something reslly special in him and i think so have barca hes justs needs more of a chance. Lets be honest he's not really had a fair chance.

Anony is totaly correct!!

I would say that Caceres is a great player with lots of potential but he just couldn't beat Pique in the competition. If you guys think back at the beginning of the season, Pique was very shaky, but he is now one of the most improved player in Barca. Just give Caceres more chance to play and he will bloom for sure !! :)

It's not like thiago is competing for the same place as Gudjohnsen. Their roles are nowhere similar. Thiago is a playmaker.

If Guddy leaves i would still like to see someone else of his and Keitas type.

HouseMD said...

Don't hesitate, just sell him.

Caceres is the great potential for the future. He just need some time to get better. How could you expect some great performances when he didn't get much playing chances. It's unfair. I don't regard Pique better than him.

get the heck out of here you so called barca fans!!!
what is wrong with guddy?? if he played his real position(striker) he would have scored as much goals as etoo,but he is playing in midfield an he is never complaining,so why would you sell him

Anonymous said...

Maxi is write he just needs a chance n he will be sick. also totallu agree with house md i dont think pique is better either. I recon caceres could be way better

@peter: thiago is a central midfielder and also guddy played this season as a central midfielder!
so when pep thinks thiago is ready we have 6 midfielders with iniesta, xavi and thiago as the offensive part, and keita, busquets and toure as the defensive ones !!! and also hleb can eventually play the part of iniesta! that is why i thought before that we can sell guddy

@anonymous 3rd above:

...look mate, you can't say things like that just because you don't like someone's opinion. Everyone has right to say what they think about some issues. Most important, all of us want the best for Barca, so you must appreciate everyone's opinion.

He has been average the last 2 seasons. He is a weak link in the team and should be playing at a time like Newcastle or Totenham. He doesn't offer us anything.

I agree with etoto about Caceres. But Pique is Barca's youth product after all. He has been playing with ball since he was a kid and is very confident with ball at his feet (just like Puyol; ofcourse I don't even have to mention the likes of Xavi, Iniesta or Messi :) ). Sometimes even too confident for a defender. That's the diference between them IMO.

Caceres was playing last season at Recre, where he just put balon of the pitch, when he was in trouble. But in Barca we expect more from centrebacks. They must build our attacking play from the backline. I'm sure, he'd have a lot more self-confidence, if he play last season at Villarreal, because they play some nice attacking football too and he would learn alot of skils with ball. Other than that he has good defending skills without ball.

About Guddy: I don't think he was ever a striker. If I remember correctly, he played as attacking midfielder or winger at Chelsea. But I doubt Guddy would score half the goals Eto'o did, if he were our striker. I respect him, but would rather give a chance to our young prodigy like Thiago or even buy-back Crosas from Celtic.
