The Ultimate Game: Get Inside Guardiola's head


We're back... This is your chance to prove not only your knowledge about the game of football but also your psychological insight by cracking the code of Josep Guardiola's master brain:

PREDICT BARCELONA'S STARTING LINE-UP


This is not (as in: N-O-T) a place for discussion on team tactics or personal player preferences. You just give the system and the eleven names you think will start the game against Athletic on Sunday.

You put them in the right position, so using the 4-3-3 (or whatever you think they will play) and putting the players from the right to the left, so the right back defender is your first name after the goalkeeper. If your line-up isn't clear, our interpretation counts.

Don't forget to add your (nick)name by clicking Name/URL under the comment box and fill it in, otherwise your after-game claim to glory will be dismissed.

You can give your starting line-up until four hours before the start of the game, in this case: until 6:00 pm barcelona time. Unless we decide otherwise.

If you give your line-up before Guardiola announes his match list (or if at least 20 players are included in the match list or if we decide so), you get one point for the correct line-up. If you do it after that announcement, you get half a point.

Your last line-up counts, injured players can be replaced at any time without losing your original points.

Who will have the most points at the end of the season, can call himself the winner.

This is the 2nd time this game is organized this season.





Last season, the game was won by "vj" with 8,5 out of 52 possible points:

Hey, I hate to do this but if it's possible can I change my front line of Messi, Bojan and henry to messi, Ibra and Henry. Pep sounded like he meant business in the conference earlier.
