“I’d like to play for an ltalian club…like Barcelona."

Who says Barca isn't deep? Take away L'il Ron, Eto'o, Deco, Messi and... you've still got a team that can rip through a third-division side like with ease - something Premiership sides seem to have a hard time doing these days. With Larsson on song and Ezquerro providing decent service, there wasn't much doubt. Puyol barely had to make a tackle.

Of course, you could argue that English League 1 sides are better than poor Zamora, who went down 6-0. Indeed, very fewer lower-division sides made it through to the current round of the Copa del Rey. You see many more upsets in the FA Cup, even though the Premiership sides often use more of their better players than Barca did. But still.

Over in Valencia, Miguel's outstanding individual effort, leading to what must be one of the goals of the tournament, gave TDH more reason to rue Sir Bob's unsuccessful bid for the Portuguese antelope. He's the sort of young, mobile defender that, hmm, Milan might want to pick up.... In the meantime, Villareal's poor showing over both legs may show that apart from Riquelme, the best Argentines are playing elsewhere.
