Guillem Balague says a trip to Real Sociedad will show us how good Barcelona are right now.Back to story
Hi Guilllem, geat article as always. My question is regarding Del Bosque and he his, what seems like, reluctance to pick Soldado for the National team. In the second half of last year he was one of the, if not the best spanish striker in the league and scored a hatrick against racing on the first day this season. Yet a couple of days later when the national team was picked, not only was he not picked, but players such as monreal, manu del moral and botia all got picked after much less convincing seasons and games than soldado. Why does he constantly overlook him? Many Valencia fans feel there is a bias against valencia players from Del Bosque, is there any truth in this?

Hi Guillem, Why do you think so many players make the progression from La Masia to becoming Barcelona regulars whist the youngsters at Real Madrid tend to fail to do so? It's not like they haven't had talented youngsters in recent years at the Bernabeu - Juan Mata and Alvaro Negredo to name just two. What do you attribute the difference to - mentality, skill level or could it be that they are afforded more time to develop at the Camp Nou? Thanks in advance, Shane Farrington.

Guillem, after Cristiano Ronaldo's recent interview refusing to rule out a return to England, do you believe his destination would be Manchester United again? Or do you think he will spend the rest of his career in Spain?

Hola Guillem i am just wondering what guardiola is thinking not buying or loanining some centre half as only pique and puyol can play there.Selling chygrinsky and caceres and releasing millito could prove costly.Kjaer on loan would have been good.
