David has yet to fill out a bio.
What did you think of the last two games of Spain.
I thought they did not play the best, and it looks like they might have to make many improvements before the WC.
I think it is a bit problematic that there is not clear first choice of eleven. I would say del Bosque should start with:
Ramos, Pique, Puyol, Capdevila/Arbeloa
Xabi Alonso as DMF
Xavi and David Silva as creative central midfielder
Pedro and Navas as wingers
and Villa as lone striker.
Starting with these players and later bringing in Torres, Iniesta and Fabregas would be the best.
From the two games it looks like Spain has too many technical players with good passing, but not to many who will do the defensive task of stealing the balls. None of Xabi Alonso, Busquets and Martinez looks like Marcos Senna in Euro 2008.

BTW Joachim Low has already given a 27 player list. If you want to check it it's here:
A Lesnar-Fedor matchup is tough to really predict because of the various factors going into the fight but I think that if they were to fight today I would lean towards Lesnar.
I know Fedor has defeated all shapes, sizes and skill levels of fighters and he is difficult to pick against but I think that Lesnar has a blend of size, strength, speed, agility, and wrestling that would be tough for Fedor to deal with.
BTW, I read your article and I felt it could have been delivered a little better to get your point across. If you ever what someone you help you refine your stuff let me know and I will do what I can. I am not an editor by any stretch but I have learned a few things here and there that really help with reaching you audience.
It was pretty good none the less.
Thanks for the feedback David but if you would have read the intro to the slideshow you would have seen that the final rankings were based on votes from the MMA community FC's. I am a big Lesnar guy but he is not close to being in my Top-10 P4P.
Everyone has their own view of what P4P is and while you and I may not agree with his inclusion Lesnar got enough votes to make the list.
