Mostly to Evan:
No doubt, but again, why are we talking about it? What has it to do with the world cup? Do you just have to constantly criticize him, we spent 4 months bitching about Maradona and why he should have taken such and such. Its irrelevant right now, he has a plan for the team, and it obviously didn't include em. I also agree it would have been better with Cambiasso, Zanetti, and Roman, but we have what we have. Lastly I didn't see any errors in the midfields or any notable mistakes that you could say "Zanetti would have stopped that from happening" or "cambiasso would have made Higuian finish better" .. .
I'm done imagining what would have happened if maradona would have taken anybody, i'm looking at the glass half full and its that you have a brilliant squad, and that outplayed and tore Nigeria to pieces, if you still wanna look at "what would have happened if he would have taken zanetti" thats your choice, but i'm sure as hell moving on, and I trust in this team, and I have all the reasons to do so.
Also, I still don't know how Higuian missed so many sitters, holy smokes! It could have been 3, 4-0 and everybody would have been" OMG Argentina played so well!"
Messi had a lot that he created on his own.
Again, did Nigeria not do anything in attack? Or did the argentina game style not let them do anything?
Every team could know how to play against Argentina? Can they execute it ? Can they keep up the pace? Same could be said about Netherlands, Barca, Italy, SPAIN, any great team has a style that works best against them, if it where that easy we would all be coaching pro teams, their's a difference between knowing and doing. Also, what where they suppose to do? Sit back with 5 defenders + mascherano and couterattack, so the tournament gets more ugly, and then "nobody knows how to play against them" . You say "you just score more goals than you let them score on you". Easy to say my man, almost impossible to do ..
They just need to finish, they just to finish, they just need to finish and everybody will be talking about them. But their playing is gorgeous and they made the tuffest team in the group play their most stressing 90minutes of their lives.
