-get aguero and zhirkov
-keep eto'o and toure
-sell hleb and guddi
-get a third good goalkeeper who can become even the number 2 or 1

that would be enough. we already have the best squad in the world.

in 1 or 2 years we can go for fabregas when xavi is 31.

loan out bojan, pedro, jeffren and thiago for 2 years. see how they perform with other teams. they need playing time. then get them back or sell them if they are not good enough.

FC BARCA said...

Cesc should be begging to come back to Barça by now. No trophies with Arsenal. And he would learn a lot from Xavi and Iniesta.

krankuba said...

ha ha haa! the catalans will just love loaning and selling bojan (because he's not good enuf). too much championship manager there, sick head?

...that's what i'm talking about...

zuka said...

If Eto'o leaves for 25mil, we can either get Villa for 25-35mil as straight replacement or play Henry up front and get Tevez for 30mil for LW. If eto'o's not leaving, then we don't have to spend on CF. For left back, just keep Abidal and promote Muniesa. And for midfield we should sell Guddy for around 5mil, keep Hleb and maybe get Hamsik for 15-20mil. For RB, we don't need to sign, V.Sanchez is good enough, he is underated, and we also got Puyol. Loan Caceres and sell Milito next season.

next year's squad:
GK: VV, Pinto, Oier
LB: Abidal, Muniesa
RB: Alves, Victor Sanchez
CB: Puyol, Marquez, Milito, Pique, Henrique
DM: Yaya, Busquets
CM: Iniesta, Xavi, Keita, Hamsik, Hleb
LW: Henry(Tevez), Jeffren, Hleb
RW: Messi, Pedro, Hleb
CF: Eto'o(Henry), Bojan

zuka said...

we need better player then Abidal on the LB.

Anonymous said...

Victor Sanchez sucks completely. We can not trust this player. Sartor would be much better, he is also probably the fastest player in Europe, currently.

Anonymous said...

zuka, that is not true. Abidal is one of the best, and Muniesa and a cheap LB backup is good enough. Maybe Anderson Pico, the man with the right foot cannon.

zuka said...

i hope that you are the only person on this blog who thinks that way, his performances should speak for himself

Anonymous said...

abidals performances were good this season, he is a good solid left back und we will for sure buy no left back in the price class of lahm, cole or evra! we will only buy a back up for abidal i think! maxwell would be a good choice und he is not too expensive

Anonymous said...

Not true, zuka, I have many with me in this.

tero said...

Abidal had a weak streak in the end of the season but I think we still need him...we also need to buy one left back because Muniesa is too inexperienced to be a only back-up for Abidal...I should buy Maxwell.Victor Sanchez is our utility player who can play many positions, his contribution will be needed when some of our players go to ANC or get injured (no,I'm not a psychic,but it's unlikely that our best players can play every game of the season)

zuka said...

his performances were not convincing at all, and i am pretty sure that LB is our priority (Zhirkov good choice surely better than Abidal)

Anonymous said...

Zhirkov is a winger, his defending is very shoddy. Abidal is a far better defender than Zhirkov. The Russian coud be an option as a left wing for us though, but his goal scoring record is not the greatest, so maybe Mata or Silva are better options.

Anonymous said...

yes zuka a LB is our priority, but only a back up to abidal! zhirkov is a to offensive player for barca, we can not play with dani alves and zhirkov as full backs, that is why abidal is the best left back for barca system!

zuka said...

i think Barca will sign better player than Abidal at his position but we will see

Anonymous said...

MARCEL JANSEN

sashi said...

i feel we are feeling safe wit Abidal rite now. we only need a back up for Abidal as we had to put Puyol there at times n also uncle has left. Abidal is gud enuf to be the main LB. Zhirkov is a winger turned full back. we dont need such a player. we need a safe player at the back and someone who doesn't go forward much! and tats why Abidal is the best we can get. all other full backs (big names) are Alves-kind-of players and we would be too vulnerable with them.

sashi said...

@ amir : he he :)

Mast said...

1. bojan is no CF so we won't hold him back by buying a young CF, he could replace henry on the wing but he doesn't have the physics to be an in the box-striker.

2. keep eto'o, don't renew him but let him play for a transfer, cause motivation will be of the utmost importance next season! buy benzema and ease him in to the team the next season. He could be the busbreaker we need + you still have eto'o when it doesn't work immediately..

3. just keeping everyone and not buying first teamers "cause we already have the best team" is not an option, look wha happend in season after our previous CL-victory!

sashi said...

Eto has physique??? wat do u think Eto has? Bojan is strong similar to Messi and Rooney. looks short but strong. and Benzema is overrated. really...
and u wanna sell Eto for a free transfer? wat are u talking about man? wat do u mean by play him for a transfer? keep him motivated by letting him dream of some other club when he's playing in Barca? u want us to keep him when both us and Eto knowing tat he wont be here next season? tats not motivation in any language.

Mast said...

didn't say eto'o has physique, but pep is looking for a busbreaking CF, bojan isn't that CF, nor are messi or rooney..

letting eto'o leave on a free transfer is a reward for al he has given us, at the end of the season he can negotiate with whom he wants. He'll be playing good so that there will be team who want him, that's the motivation I'm talking about..

benzema isn't there yet but by giving him time and slowly introducing him I think he could be awesome in our system,

any transfer is a risk, but keeping eto'o (something you know works) reduces that risk and eto'o won't want to compete with a star like ibra, but someone who has everything to prove he might accept..

just my humble view..

Marc4barca said...

i've never seen this forum so active on the topics before the season ended. looks like transfers is going through everyone's mind or is it vacation time for everyone. we shouldn't get to excited cause barcelona's perception of first class players is a little twisted.

Anonymous said...

Marc: little twisted? We all know that Laporta and Pep are geniuses, so give them credit. We will get the necessary players which we all want, so there is no need to pour lots of cod water on the burning fire.

zealot said...

Excuse me Pep, Would you please translate this article and put it here. Look interesting to me :)

2. Riise
3. ? Trezeguet for 20 million ?

Anonymous said...

even if we cant or do not sign any busbreakers, we'll still do it the barca way; around the bus. XD

sashi said...

Iason : where do u get the cash to sign Ibra, Vidic and Ribery??? let alone tat Vidic is next to impossible to leaving Man U, Ribery's 1 leg cost 40 mil and Ibra wont be let for anything less than 50 mil... get real man!
