Everyone can open a thread of his Barca team for next season. After you made your thread the content will have to be approved first before it shows as to check the figures (so be sure to have a copy in word).
Other members can then engage in discussions and ask questions and once we're done we'll have a poll and pick the winner by the end of the month.

Short description: This is where you post a short explanation of your team.
I'm using Conte's Juventus 3-5-2 system which is historically familiar to Barca. Inside forwards are gone as they added little value and we've become too predictable. Alba and Dani are still there to operate the flanks and big forwards Cavani/Drogba are adding another dimension in attack making Messi more comfortable (said himself he liked playing behind a striker).
System can also be transformed easily to Barca's standard 4-3-3 by pulling Dani and Alba back and pushing Masch forward in DM spot.
Messi-Cavani-Iniesta making a forward trident.
