Football Focus, this Saturday. Barcelona’s 3-0 defeat to Sevilla (in Uefa’s meaningless Super Cup) comes up, and Lawro spouts some nonsense about how Barcelona’s second team are good enough to finish in the top four in the Premier League.
For the record, a Barcelona second team could line-up something like this:
Jorquera; Gio Van Bronckhorst, Lilian Thuram, Oleguer, Sylvinho; Edmilson, Mark Van Bommel, Eidur Gudjohnsen; Ludovic Giuly, Javier Saviola, Santiago Ezquerro
Top six maybe, but top four is pushing it, I think. What say you, Pies readers – is Lawro talking arse? It wouldn’t be the first time.
