If anyone should be dropped it's Xabi Alonso. Del Bosque isn't getting the best out of Xavi - Fabregas is much more suited to the role that he wants Xavi to play.Drop Busquets, play Fabregas instead and play a winger instead of Torres. They can always bring him off the bench if they are desperate for a goal. This formation doesn't really get the best out of Spain but the quality of the players is papering over the cracks.
No, I think the CL tie between Arsenal-Barca proved pretty conclusively that Fabregas has some way to go to match Xavi in dictating the midfield. He plays in a withdrawn forward role for Spain, which suits him best in that team. Busquets seems the odd one out in that midfield. I don't know why he is being shoe-horned in when Xavi and Xabi Alonso are already there to do that job.If anyone should be dropped it's Xabi Alonso.

The way I see it, Xabi Alonso is an inferior version of Xavi, I think the midfield balances better with Busquets playing the role where he breaks up opposition attacks and recycles possession to the likes of Iniesta, Cesc and Xavi.Ah, I see I misread your post and we are pretty much suggesting the same thing - Xavi further back in midfield, Fabregas playing the link-up role between midfleld and the strikers. You prefer Alonso to be dropped, I'd rather Busquets was benched.
