Sergio Busquets before Cesc Fabregas for Barça 2011/12


I totally understand the hype about signing Cesc Fabregas: The Catalan playmaker has taken THREE summers to get Grandpa Wenger's permission to come FC Barcelona and fans couldn't be more excited. But don't forget that, even WITHOUT Cesc, we have the best midfield in the world.

I asked the question: 'With Cesc Fàbregas coming to Barça, we now have him plus Xavi Hernandez, Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Thiago, Keita and Mascherano in midfield. Which THREE should play?' and was surprised to see how most fans forgot to include Sergio Busquets in their selection.

Sergio Busquets, speaking in April 2011: 'I am 22 years old and have loads to improve on. At this age, you can't rest on the titles you've won or think your a superstar. My long passes can get better, or my shots from far distances. I need to be a much more complete player to help the team even more'

La Masia has produced many creative playmakers over the years (Xavi, Guardiola, Amor, Iniesta) but Sergio also has a rare defensive flare, which is unusual. Plus, learning from Mascherano, Yaya Toure and training next to world superstars on a daily basis can't be a bad thing.

Despite the arrival of Cesc Fabregas to the Camp Nou, Guardiola's preferred attacking midfield must be Commander Xavi, Blanquito Genius Iniesta but safeguarded by Skinny Octopus Sergio Busquets. They have already brought success to FC Barcelona, starting in many High Five 5-0 wins last season.

One of the main football rules is: 'If it works, don't touch it!'

SERGIO BUSQUETS IS NOW THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF BARçA!!!!!!
