Where's Oli?

This game of spot the difference is fast taking over my blog, but with the football season about to begin in Spain it would be a shame to let this one pass. Here we see some of Barcelona's star players in one of their pre-season training sessions. First of all we see Messi, Eto'o, Henry, Ronaldinho and Oleguer posing proudly for the cameras:

Then in our second shot, play close attention now, we see Messi, Eto'o, Henry, Ronaldinho and....and....but where's Oli?

I would like to suggest that the exclusion of Oleguer from the photo has been because of his tendency to express political opinions that do not please the Barmy Army (pseudonym of the Partido Popular in my sporting posts). However, the reality is probably more prosaic, the people preparing the piece were not prepared to concede him a place in the Fantastic Five. Stalin would have been proud of this work, although he wasn't a big Photoshop user.
