and the difference between the USA and Argentina is that the USA was never a favorite. Everyone knows their weak in defense and that not conceding early goals is rare. The USA fans talked about the team but we didn't have anyone as relentless as yourself with stating that they'll win the WC. The USA's goal was to get out of the group, they did that so even though we're disappointed with the exit, its what I'm sure we all really expected.
You can stay on your bandwagon and if they can play against some quality sides and do what you think I'll admit I'm wrong, but I doubt that'll happen.
I never said Argentina was gonna win anything. I said they have strong possiblities, and thats a fair statement, 10 goals in 4 games, the best offense in the world, and solid enough back to support it. By saying shaky, your only implying that they are amongst the 6 worst, when clearly they aren't and statistically amongst the top 5, with more matches played and less goals received than many teams
Brown, when did I say they where gonna win the world cup?? Would you please do me the inmense favor of pointing when I stated that they would?
I never bragged, I just defended what its believe is true. I really think they are championship material, is that a sin? Can I not have faith in the team I'm supporting, one of the best of the world player for player, and technically, one of the 8 best of the world? According to many here, Argentina wasn't gonna be where they are, and many talked bulls**t all the road, how they where gonna loose to such and such, how Maradona was a retard, how Zanetti should have gone, how Lio isn't the same in Argentina, bla bla bla.
I'm on a bandwagon? You're the one that keeps repeating the same exact sh*t over and over again "VS A LARGER DEFENDER THEY WILL BE SHAKY". Cool, good for you, but thats in the future, in the present they are nothing close to that, they aint shaky, 2 goals isn't shaky.
Excuse me if I refuse to believe what people are saying. I don't see any flaws in this defense. There is one defender that makes mistakes, and he is shaky, but the whole defense isn't. Your making it sound like they just can't defend and they let goals through with all teams, obviously not true.
I can think whatever I want. If I post something here, its cause I truely believe it. I'm not on any bandwagon, I don't believe the defense is shaky, it might not be the best in the world, and ill happilly admit it, i'm anything except stuborn, I give credit where it goes. They have flaws, they aint the best, but by no means are they shaky and I've stated time after time why they aren't. The teams haven't been world class either, but they have stood them well, including 60 minutes that Argentina gave the possesion to Mexico and said "hey attack me" we're gonna sit back and let you do that, they only got 1 goal. If 4 good teams each put 2 in the back of the net of argentina, then the defense might be considered shaky. If 4 good teams score 2 goals between all of them, then the defense deserves some credit, and you are the biased one if you don't wanna give it to them.
De Michellis makes mistakes. He doesn't need Klose to finish it, Koreans can. I don't think he'll mess up again that bad in this tournament, and by that bad I mean I think he'll play it safe coming out of the back.
Samuel is champion of europe, italy, and italian cup.
Heinze is a damn warrior that will literally not let you breathe.
Otamendi will run, and will work, he's the best in his club team,and he does the work on his side.
Mascherano does everything, and adds 903513% balls to the defense, he will not stop running, chasing, sliding, and recovering balls.
Simply, a defense that only allows 2 goals, in a world cup, isn't shaky.
If bandwagon is just not admiting something that is a big bag of bulshit lacking any proof, and just a simple guess or prediction then I need a new dictionary. So go ahead and call out again that im on a bandwagon just for not agreeing with your "predictions" that lack proof.
haha argentina has allowed 2 goals, if that is shaky, then the only teams in the world cup with a "non" shaky defense are Paraguay, that has only played 3 games, and Uruguay. Those are the only ones that haven't received 2 goals. Sorry Germany, sorry England, sorry Italy, sorry Netherlands, your defense is shaky, get off the bandwagon
Oh Hugh, that argentina hasn't received more goals because they are lucky is as valid as saying that brazil's 5 world cups have been mere luck. give me facts. i'm 100% sure that your just resenting england's loss.
S11, Messi hasn't performed as well the last 2 games because Veron hasn't played. He needs a midfielder to compliment his game style and make the most out of him. he needs someone to feed him, be it Veron or Pastore. Mascherano is just a warrior in the back, with little offensive traits,
