Choosing foreign coaches is for small countries (like England )
The problem with Brazil right now is that they suck (Adriano can't f***ing move for god's sake! He weighs like 100 kg!), but so do we. Man, tying in the last minute against Ecuador, that's just embarassing. The problem with our team is basically that the guy sitting in the bench and his drinking buddies knowing shit about how to make a team(the name's Alfio Basile, a good friend of Julio Grondona, who runs the AFA. Hmmm, no, nothing suspicious there...). Put Riquelme, Gago, Veron and Mascherano all at the same time in the pitch and the result is Guerron having a picnic in the right band. I won't deny that Ecuador's defence was in good shape the entire game, but also Argentina's lack of offensive attitude had a dessicive influence in the final score.
My prediction for the match against Brazil: It will be either a boring 0-0 or Brazil will miracolously recover their form and beat us 3-0(or worse). Pretty pesimistic, huh? Well, check the last results between Brazil and Argentina and you'll see.

anyone saw the turkey vs. czech game, that was the game of the tournament. Also Germany won, so it going to be portugal vs. Germany in the qauterfinal. I hope Portugal wins.
^so far that was the game of the tournament, but theres a lot more games to come. I can't wait to get home to watch Italy vs France, hopefully it is a good game
You dont see that often... an Argentinian expecting a defeat against Brazil, and a Brazilian expecting a defeat against Argentina.
Well, I wouldnt bet on this match, that's for sure...
Rumours say Zico is well-reputed to be next Portugal's coach.
What do you think about it, Mendes?
I dunno. I'm used to have the press rumor alot. We'll most likely be appointed a new coach every day if it comes to the press. But I like Zico (at least as a player) and the work he developed in Fenerbahce. My favorite would be Carlos Queiroz, but I honestly doubt he'll leave United. There's still a bunch of renowned coaches around without contract. We'll see.
Italy won 2-0 against France. Italy has that lucky star on this competitions, as France was too soft in that game and Romenia couldnt step up to a powerful Holland 'B'. We'll have a pleasant Spain vs Italy for the Quarter-finals and an interesting Holland vs Sweden or Russia. Portugal-Germany will be a major dish and Croatia will face Turkey.
when do argentina and Brasil play
I'll be at class -_____- I hope the teacher wants to watch the game too. xD
Wasnt tevez or messi playing?Originally Posted by sk.nite
Btw, the match is going to clash with the euro's. I might still watch it, if the other matches get boring.
It wont clash. In GTM:
Brazil x Argentina 19/06 01h50
Portugal x Germany 19/06 19h45
Its kinda late in the night, but I may be able to watch it. If Dunga gets defeated I think he'll be fired for sure
So why doesn't he play with all three attackers in order to let them form the attack on their own? So Aguero is on the adult team now? grats to him, I thought he was still in the under 21
Argentina's midfield is getting old... I havent been hearing of any young attacking midfield talent from Argentina. Some years ago, it was that generation where Aimar, Veron and Riquelme were in their prime. Is Banega a good player, sk.nite?
He is under 21, but he's a prodigy and since Saviola rarely plays in Real and Crespo, Cruz cant keep up with the attacking dynamism of Argentina's forwards (specially Messi's), he's the best man for the job. I look forward to see if Aguero lives up to the expectations placed on him. It must be tough the battle for center forward position in Argentina. Crespo, Aguero, Tevez, Delgado, Saviola, Cruz, Trejo and watch out for Lisandro
