Time for my manager. This guy doesn't have any prior soccer experience but I've read all the very accurate articles about him on kissing Suzy Kolber and I've seen him coach basketball, golf and even help Santa Claus and he did a ****ing good job at all of them.
And if this isn't allowed I'll take Carlo Ancelotti.
If the 24 hour rule is in play I'm going to exercise it as it's probable I won't be in internet touch for 24 hours.
I was looking at several players for this spot - I was going to pick Manure's Valencia - he's had an excellent season and is a really good player and is a right sided winger, someone I need for the bench. Was also thinking Bojan, the youngster from Barca, who is an awesome talent with freakish dribbling skills.
In the end I've gone for Bojan's teammate - Pedro - or Pedro Rodriguez - he's had a fantastic season. Think he scored again today for Barca which takes his season tally to 24, which for a winger (he can play either side or even as a target man, but is predominantly right sided) is just exceptional - scored round about a goal every two games - fabulous return. Then you consider who he's competing for goals with in that Barca line up, it makes it even better.
I've seen games this year where Barca were down and out, no spark from their usual sources, and it's been Pedro who has stepped up to the plate. He was quality against Inter Milan, definitely Barca's best player over the two legs, and that was the team that truly tested Barca this year. He also stepped up in El Classico. He's only 22 and he makes the bench for my squad.
Once that's done I'll put up a Voting thread to see who wins. As for injuries, I personally won't check everyone's line up to see if they're healthy (if someone wants to, be my guest). I'm thinking everyone can check their own lineup.
