couldn't agree with you more guillem, chelsea have very little chance if any. its a poor chelsea team even their fans will admit that. they were fortunate to get past benfica wo in truth well outpassed them (but for mata). with the ever tempremental luiz is the centre of defense there isn't even a solid enoug base to fall back on. over too legs i see barca winning by a margin of atleast 3 goals. as for Real again spot on all the pressure is on them and they have more difficult of the champions league draws. bayern munich outside of the spanish top to are probably the next best team in europe (prem league including). ribery, schweinsteiger, gomez, robben they have some of best players in the world and wud test most. if real lose the el classico thats a 1 point gap. i think madrid are capable, messi maybe the greatest, but what cristiano ronaldo is doing is incredible. they almost deserve to win the league based on his performances alone.

Hi Guillem, Do you think that Jose Mourihno will look to sign a new right back as Sergio Ramos has now been converted to a central defender and Arbeloa is the only natural right back.

Tom Fletcher (Liverpool fan) says...

hi guillem interesting article as usual.....i just wondered what your thoughts on comolli leaving liverpool are, to me it appears as though he has been blamed for alot of daglish's decisions. i believe the bad results have come from his tactics or decision making during games, for example using the straight 4-4-2 at home has enabled teams like norwich, swansea and wigan to come to anfiled and have more possession than us and for me not playing suarez up top with gerrard in the hole behind as used successfully with torres is a cardinal sin especially just to accomidate carroll and 2 old fashioned wingers in average downing and henderson. I was always told if it ain't broke don't fix it and in the 2nd half of last season we were fantastic utilising the 4-2-3-1 with the 3 attacking midfield interchanging and playing between the lines so i just wondered why he would change the system and players IE dropping maxi, kuyt and miereles (at home to sunderland) and cast aside aquilani who has been fantastic the past 2 seasons for juve and ac to accomidate british players?

hi Guillem, nice column. How would the Spanish league look without messi & Rolando? also if you took out their contribution this season, would the table change? My guess is it would..... Aspi

Hi Guillem, Do you think the FIFA fair play rules are a good idea? I watch a lot of world football but I hate to say this, it is only a few rich teams who win everything. Its not fair. In Spain Barcelona and Real Madrid fight for 1st and 2nd place and everyone else fights for third and fourth place; In Itally its Inter and AC; in England its ManU, now City,Chelsea and Arsenal. We need fair competition in football as is the case in business.

Andreas de brito Jonassen (Chelsea fan) says...

Guillem, what do you think about Thibaut Courtois? Does he have the skills to replace Petr Cech at Chelsea when the time comes? Should Chelsea loan Courtois out next season as well for him to get playing time or try to rotate between him and Cech?

Hi Guillem, I like your comments on Liverpool and wish that the club may actually make some footballing decisions for once, but it seems unlikely now that Kenny is a real legend at the club and adored by many fans. Anyway to my question, which team do you think will win in the champions league semifinals between Bayern and Madrid? Thanks.

Hi Guillem, I think this summer will be very intresting with the Euros and with the transfer window. What do you think the big transfers will be in La Liga this summer? I know you said Neymar is going to Barcelona which is obviously a massive transfer. Do you see any premier league players going to to Madrid or Barca?

@guillem, i now barcelona is the best team in the world and chelsea is the same as barca, but barcelona will no win to chelsea in the champions league b/c barcelona is more safer to win to chelsea in there before and so chelsea will win to barcelona~!

Guilleme, as usual, is correct. Barcelona are peaking and Real are looking very shaky recently. To be honest, if you can't win with a 10 point lead then you dont deserve to be champions! As for Chelsea in the CL beating Barca? No chance at all. Won't happen. And I do think that Jose has got it right in this respect... Look back dispassionately and see that when Barca are playing well they are left to play well and they look great. But when they are playing ordinary just look how many times they have a bit of luck when an opposition player sent off! Chelsea, Arsenal, Real Madrid... The list goes on and on. Lastly, and I hate to say it, but the only difference between Real Madrid and Barca is Messi. I think until he has run his course we will just have to accept that Barca will win everything! And is anyone else sick of the MESSIah complex that all commentators seem to have? Even games that have no Barca connection are hijacked by it. Theres no escape! But it'll end when Pep leaves Barca... I think they make each other look good and he wouldn't be anywhere near as sucessful at any other club. Prove me wrong Pep - win with another club like Mourinho has. Until then, like Alex Ferguson winning the league continuously in a one horse league, you will always be a Barca legend only. And what were Barca before Pep? Not much I'm afraid... Congratulations on the Liga and Champions League titles again my Catalan friends.

I am die hard Chelsea fan who believes something vital is missing in the club and players. Do you think the Special One could go back to coach the blues? And will Torres raise the bar next season?

Do you think Liverpool youngster Suso, can make his way into the Spain team in the near future? Will he make career for himself at Liverpool or will he suit the Spanish league more?

Hi,guillem,big fan of your column and revista.After watching athletic bilbao in la liga and the europa league,they are an extremely talented team,i was wondering what you make of players ander herrera and oscar de marcos,they seem to me be of the same caliber as muniain and martinez but dont seem to get the same amount of attention for some reason.
