EL CLASICO 29th NOV 2010 | FC BARCELONA - REAL MADRID | HIGUAIN FALLS ( OR NOT ) & STARTING 11 SPECULATIONS | MIND GAMES
The very latest news may now throw dirt over the post below. All day REAL MADRID has been filtering that GONZALO HIGUAIN had been left out due to a lingering back problem to which he hasn´t recovered in time to play tonights "Clasico" against FC BARCELONA. In fact, media had announced earlier that Mourinho had announced in his tactical meeting with his players this afternoon that Karim Benzema would take the place of Higuain.
The very, very latest is that Gonzalo Higuain has not been discarded 100% & will be tested during the teams warm-up at the "Camp Nou". This last piece of news is being interpreted as a Mourinho tactic to mislead & play on how Barça may line -up tonight. Will Higuain play? Thus will Mascherano play instead of Pedro. Will Benzema play? Thus will Pedro play instead of Mascherano. Will Benzema play & Higuain be on the bench? I THINK IT WILL BE THE LATTER...
Whatever the final decision is we are fully immersed in Football Mind Games! This is contributing "positively" to thicken the "El Clasico" atmosphere & lifting expectations further in this already highly anticipated clash of Giants. With less than 2 hours to go ...who cares just get on with it :O)
With so much guessing, speculation & unknowns I thinks a video is appropriate to calm the nerves of all World Football fans. Whatever happens , Spanish Football Sports will post a full summary with result & scorers ( if not a 0 -0 score) around 23.30 Sp time. Here is John Lennon who perfectly sums it all up:
LATEST (20.20 sp time)...from Camp Nou...BENZEMA in for Higuain. Believe it or not :O)...may the better team win! Tweet
