Post by barca 2011 Mon Nov 14, 2011 9:36 pm

Got bored yesterday so I made a little comparison of just a hypothetical match-up here, since it is very unlikely or is it? We all know that the Catalans want to become independent and it got me wondering if an all-catalan XI would have what it takes to take on La Roja, so here is my lineup for a Clasico-like match:

Catalonia (4-3-3):
GK:V.Valdes
RB:Puyol
RCB:J.Amat
LCB:Pique
LB:Didac

RCM:Xavi
CDM:Busquets
LCM:Cesc

RW:S.Garcia
ST:Tamudo
LW:Bojan

Subs:
Casilla,Fontas,Bartra,V.Ruiz,Capdevila/Navarro,O.Serrano,Verdu,Alvaro Vazquez


Spain (3-4-3):
GK:Casillas
RCB:Ramos
CB:Albiol
LCB:Arbeloa

RM:Silva
RCM:Thiago
LCM:Iniesta
LM:Mata

RW:Pedro
ST:Llorente
LW:Villa

Subs:Reina,Marchena,Javi Martinez,Iraola,Alonso,Valero,Torres,Negredo



I wanna go with Catalonia as they have pretty much Barca's DF and MF but I just dont think that the catalan's potential firepower up front would be enough for a still powerful Roja. Im going with Spain.

Dangit I blind voted Catalonia because I'm biased and now I realize the Spain team would wipe the floor with that Catalan team on paper.

Yeah but they rarely field their best possible XI, which u have to admit is still strong on paper.

Shouldn't Thiago count for Catalonia, since he was pretty much made by the Masia?

A better Spanish xi imo

Arbeloa - Ramos - Albiol - Enrique
Alonso
Iniesta - Thiago
Silva - Llorente - Mata

tbh I like this one even better than Catalonias...

Swap Xavi in there and Pique and it's how Spain should play

It is a good one, I was unsure of leaving out alonso, but still a strong team.

Silva, Guiza, Iniesta, and Marchena are all also Catalunian. Villa, Llorente, Navas, and Albiol I thought were too, but im not sure.

While Català is spoken in both the Spanish Government recognizes them as separate Communities/Districts (Balearic Islands & The Valencian Community).

Just saying it's a bit strange to put him in either team if the categories are universal and mutually exclusive.

Lol.. are you making this up as you go??

David Silva is from the Canary Islands and have represented them before against Angola iirc.

Dani Guiza is from Andalusia and has represented them against Zambia.

Andres Iniesta was a guest player.. and has never played for Catalunya ever again, plus he isn't Catalan, he's from Castile-La Mancha.

Carlos Marchena is from Andalusia and has represented them against Zambia.

David Villa is from Asturias, even his nickname is Asturian, El Guaje.

Fernando Llorente is 100% Basque and has represented Euskadi several times.

Jesus Navas is from the region of Seville.

and finally, Raul Albiol is Valencian and has represented them against Palestine.

Well, he's got Spanish in him at least so I guess that qualifies him as Castellan at least.

The Catalonia lineup looked great, up until the abysmal front line.

Pretty much I'm just going off of what the current NT status of these players is. And the fact that Catalonia is a NT, just not officially and Thiago has never represented them.
