Fabregas said he preferred playing deeper in midfield, so Barca stick him up front.
They really didn't need him, regardless of how many goals he's scored.

Just because he prefers there does not mean it is his best position. We stuck him behind the striker and he excelled.

Steven gerrard often says he prefers playing deeper, yet when benetiz played him behind torres he was playing the best he ever had in his career.

That's true. But I don't think having him in their team has improved them in any way. It's disrupted the balance. Busquets Xavi Iniesta with Villa Messi Pedro or Sanchez for Villa or Pedro is their most potent line up.

I'm just being bitter, ignore me.
