I mean, cambiasso is sort of a defensive midfielder, and in my opinion we had the best in the world, mascherano.. but zanetti we definetly needed, clearly seen when all 4 goals went down that wing
what i've been talking to shahensa and to afew people on here all week, we need, a freaking center mid, we had no central midfielder with organizational traits - a xavi, a cesc, an alonso, a sneijder, a person in the middle of the field that makes that wonderful striking force play.. Riquelme was ideal, Veron was good enough, but none is just ilogical. You could really see Maradona was lacking tactically by not chosing anyone to do that, and assuming his individualities would take him further.. he was a good motivational, all the argentines loved playing for their hero, he really wanted to win, he really loves football and argentina but, tactically, the most importantt he's fried. Del Bosque, has the shittiest personality, is bornig as hell, little or no motivation, but he has tactical knowledge and knows how to line up his players according to their strengths, and choses strategies and tacticss that will make their playerss shinee... Messi was diminished, Higuian was small, Tevez is warrior but not to potential, and damn, you need a midfielder with vision and passing skills you just do. When have you ever seen a good team, without a center midfielder with assisting and passing skills. thats not mascherano's job, and maxi and di maria are wingers for heavens sake. mascherano, di maria, and maxi in the midfield, sums up the blame and answers clearly why the team didn't perform. player for player they had to be in the semis or further, in spite of leaving out players of the calibre of zanetti and riquelme, but tactically, organizationally and balancedly ...........maybe football evolved and Maradona isn't aware of that, or maybe since he was so talented and just took the ball and ran ge nver learnt sh*t about tactics... either way, the man needs a kick in the ass and to be replaced asap. I was thinking they would replace him when he cussed at the press, but I think nobody had the balls......... to be fair he improved a lot as a manager, but still was lakcing
in the end otamendi was subbed, while it was still 2-0, and thats when germany hurt argentina the most with those dynamic electric counterattacks, and they only had 3 defenders and masche so they got fuckeed with no lubee
