Hi Guillem, After a stuttering start Athletic Bilbao have started to show real signs of improvement under Marcelo Bielsa. They have core of hugely talented players such as Javi Martinez, IKer Munian and Fernando Llorente, and look capable of building on last season's achievments. Do you think they have what it takes to secure a Champions League spot this season? Thanks in advance.

Hi Guillem. I've e-mailed you before (last year about Thiago Alcantara - you responded Thanks) and I'm wondering who¿ll be the next big player to come out of Barcelona¿s Academy. Is Rafina going to make it in the next two years and who's he similar too, and why does Guardiola not give Fontas any minutes. I'm happy to see Cuenca getting minutes, he's doing well. But ultimately - who from the youths will have a first team contract next year.?.

hi guilleme i would just like to know(its a good thing),,i watched spanish football for 20 years and one thing that strikes me is all the teams are willing to play football.this facinated me because the ball goes from keeper to defender then on,,why do all the english and most other leaugues say they want to emulate barca then play long ball,,in spain this fear of losing doesnt exist,,obviously no one wants to get relegated but why is there no fear...is it training,upbringing,,i dont know ,,its fantastic to watch ,,best league in the world by a very long way...also do you think the foreign money will change the game there and make it more rigid and fearfull like england etc

richard cotter are you even on the same plant as everyone else??? enrique the best left back in the prem, coming from a liverpool fan, baines at the bitters is the highest scoring defender on the planet par dani alves over the past three seasons, hes set up more than dani alves in that period, and only nani set up more than him in any position last season, really need to wobble your head, baines, cole, are both better and possibly kolorov, enrique is a good player yes but no where near a capdevilla in his prime, and jordi alba is better devensivley and going foward than him, and pfffftttt get a grip david villa to us, we have a policy of young future stars at liverpool now, not 30 year old players that have said no to the premier league for two years running because they dont want to leave spain, llorente now thats a target we should look at maybe, but cmon dont overhype our players so much you think mediocre players are world class

Hola Guillem, Keep up the good work on this site and Revista, the best football show on TV. A question regarding the Spanish national team. I know they move their games around the country but when was the last time the they played a game in Barcelona or Bilbao? Also I'm a Barca fan and I was wondering if the defence will be the main area that the club are looking to strengthen next summer, I've noticed Jordi Alba being linked but what about the cenre-back position.

Cem Bilenler (Barcelona fan) says...

Hi Guillem, very exciting and informative article like allways. I just wanted to ask about the situation with Villa and Messi, as you must be aware, there is some media sources claiming that they have had a considerable arguement. Hence the reason for not starting against Ath.Bilbao. How worrying is this speculation for Barcelona fans around the world. Finally it would be much appreciated if you can comment on Barcelona flirting with Gareth Bale. I mean it would be amazing but how and where would he play? Please get back to me. Keep up the good work.

Hello Guillem, I know you're a Spanish football expert and just wanted know what you think of Ignasi Miquel, Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin all at Arsenal? Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin both joined Arsenal in the summer from Barcelona and are going for Arenal U18s team. And Ignasi Miquel who was in the Spanish U19s squad which won the U19s Euros in the summer, is captain for Arsenal reserves. Thanks

HI Guillem,I am a huge fan of your blogs.I follow La Liga and EPL. There is one thing I cannot understand:why does the EPL clubs dont produce outstanding technical players.Even teams like Manchester United and Arsenal where the managers have been at their respective clubs for more than14 years,who it seems are in control of most of the things.

Hi Guillem, Love the blog and also follow you and many other great football writers on Twitter. What I wanted to ask you was what are Bareclona's and even Real Madrid's take on Gareth Bale? It was confirmed by the spanish media that Albert Valentin had been at Craven Cottage to check out Gareth Bale, is there a genuine interest in him? Everyone knew what he was capable of in last seasons Champions League but Barca opted to buy Cesc and Sanchez instead.

Hi Guillem ive been watching spanish football for most of my life im now 18 and for me the past few seasons having been as good but this season im glad that im seeing teams like bilbao , levante etc not lying down when playing madrid or barca which makes for more exciting games do you think this is because these teams have realised players such as pepe , marcelo , adriano , abidal can be got at or do you just think the so called 'lesser sides' are better defensively to stand up and not crumble under pressure? and also do you think Madrid and Barca have what it takes defensively to win the Champions League this season? im very dissapointed with Villareal this season who seem to have lost all the usual spirit.
