This is Marcos Senna, he should be on the pitch


  • Barcelona Looks good in a strange version of the 3-4-3. Abidal is all over the place every time I watch him I’m more and more convinced he is as important to the defensive cohesion as anyone else.
  • Thiago Scored his first La Liga goal despite the fact he is playing a less offensive form of a RWB. His greatest attribute may be what he showed on that goal, running down the center of the field and firing outside the box. Unfortunately at RWB that probably won’t happen too often
  • Cesc Scored, of course he did.
  • Christian Zapata looks like a good signing, though he hasn’t made any spectacular defensive saves, his pace and technique look spot on. Udinese could be really hurting this year.
  • Second half is about to start, look to see Rossi press the issue a bit more, I think he is still a bit upset he isn’t playing on the other side of things in this one
  • Well before I could post this, make that all 3 newcomers on the score sheet, Alexis makes it 3-0
