Guardiola's defensive problems are increasing by the minute. Now Chygrynskiy is out for a week with a slight thigh problem. Chygrynskiy noticed some discomfort in his left thigh in training, the scans revealed a 1.5cm tear. Now with that we have almost all of our defensive players in the squad in the injury list. Plus both Marquez and Pique both are suspended. Now the only option left to Guardiola is to use Keita at left back, Puyol and Milito in defense and Maxwell at right. Another option is to have Muniesa or Fontas as Centre defender and use Puyol as Right Back. But against the likes of Forlan and Aguero that could be suicidal.

I like it that u thought about Keita on the left back for this match ... i prefer Puyol in the center back under any condition for this match ... the problem that Guardiola is having the choice to play 3-4-3 ...

Puyol-Milito-Maxwell --> Defence
Bosquets - Keita-Xavi & Iniesta --> Midfiled
Ibra-Messi & Henry "Pedro" --> Offence

That might work but the problem that our players not flixible in tactics under Guardiola's umbrella.

I remember season 2006/2007 seasonj that Richkard used this with Zaragoza & liverpool & it was good for exceptional cases ...

This game with Athlatico de Madrid will be critical & main curve for the whole season .. it will show if we can hold such tough situations .. if we passed this test we will have a good run .. hope that our players will not let us down as they always do ...

with a 3-4-3 formation we might be very much susceptible to counter attacks. With Aguero and Forlan we may not be able to take that risk. If Toure was available we could have tried the 3-4-3 formation with Toure playing slightly behind Busquets.

we can make it with Keita @ Bosquets .. and the three defenders firm at back with Bosquets infront we can make it ...

Iniseta & messi can defend the wings in a good way ...

lets see how Pep will handle this situation this time .. hope to come over this match

I doubt that Ghassan. Both of them are not solid in defense as Toure is and could find themselves exposing the defense.

this is just too much for pep. we should never compromise the defence. there should be 4 in defence and this is the time to call on the youngsters or Keita to fit that hole. we can't allow Aguero and friends any counter-attacks cuz they can hurt us badly. 4 in defence the midfield will keep them safe with their possession.

nana:

agree with you completely. Vicente Calderón is not the place where you experiment with defense. We should have the best available defense and best available offense. Remember A. Madrid is not that great defending so we can hurt them real badly. But the pressure will be on them. I have a serious doubt whether Ibra's lack of form will work against us.

Ibra will score tonight .. I can feel it :)

Ghassan:

He may score tonight in practice, but may not on Sunday. Just Kidding. I know you meant in Sunday, Let's hope so. The last thing we want is our CF not to fire when Forlan and Aguero start running riot.

wrote something about the Laureus award nomination. Check the new posts. Do you think Messi has a chance of winning. In my opinion he may not

Ghassan:
I like the attitude u have towards ibra. we all hope he hits top gear quickly. it'll be better for him and barca. against Athleti i would go for the funniest attack( Messi-Pedro-Jeffren) with these they would just swap positions at will. i know it would never happen.

Unknown said...

U know this would be a great trio as they are all fast &they will keep ,oving aroung ... Hope that Jeffren will be phisiclally ready for this game if Pep used him as full back ..

About Ibra all he need now is some confidence & support from the whole squad we will need him badly in the coming CL games ..
