@ Marc4barca

John Terry is pure Chelsea. Lampard, on the other hand, is from West Ham.

Bayern had four home-grown players in first XI (Lahm, Badstuber, Schweinsteiger and Muller) and O'Shea (ManU) is also a home-grown player.

Last game we even used Jeffrén and Fontás...I like this a lot! And soon Thiago and Dos Santos will be ready! This clubs youth system is incredible! Visca el niños! (or whatever it's supposed to be)

Yeah, youre right! Iniesta is missing. Is this incredible guys? And we wont have to worry because if Xavi leaves the field one day we have the ones that step into his feet: Jonathan Dos Santos and Thiago! To all European Top Clubs: We are coming! Visca Barca!

we could have ten if muniesa plays in that lineup at LB...maybe in a copa del rey game? a full 11 if fontas plays and puyol moves to RB!

No suprise that Barca produces the most players...

How pathetic that the top 4 teams in the EPL can produce a total of 6 players out of the cummulative 44 positions... LOSERS!!!
