Argentina Line-Up

    Draw with MExico at home looks like good result.

    But, they have not a one action with clue. It’s real problem.
    Espinoza, Calleri non exist. Correa only as clown with no.10 on his back. (I was hope before for other dribbler type player instead but with brain – Franco Cervi)

    Yes, Correa is only 21 but some youthful habits never changed. Look at Di Maria. Some players at any age will always dribble instead of passing. It’s addict.
    Correa is extremaly talented and so far extremally non-collective player. Now I understand why he isn’t starter under Simeone.
    SOme names looks dangerous: Espinoza, Simeone, Correa. Aren’t the same as last U-20 World Cup?

    Espinoza isn’t surprise for me. I was never impressed by him. He shouldn’t be there.
    Calleri? Remember my first intuition about this guy when he was in Boca. I thought “he is good but not as much good as people thinking”. Then was all the hype about him… Now I’m backing to my first intuition. I know he is better than in that 3 friendlies but probably not enough good for olimpic games. So slooow, static. Like Aguero on NT tournaments.

    Pluses:

    it’s only one goal conceeded in 3 games

    1. Gomez – matter of course
    2. Rulli – matter of course
    3. Martinez – really reminds Enzo Perez in best moments
    4. Ascacibar – still not the Ascacibar from Estu but he is the youngest and always keep some good level
    5. Soto – against Mexico was very precise in defence
    6. Cuesta – still has some reserves and can do better

    Gianetti – I believe still in the player. I saw his every single minute in last season in Velez. He need more experience and composure. But despite the red card he still had a lot of interceptions. Always want to anticipate a forward receiving a ball. I like his aggresive style.

    My team:

    …………Rulli
    …..Gianetti…Cuesta
    Gomez……………….Vega
    ……Ascacibar..Arzura
    …Martinez……..Lo Celso
    ……Pavon….Simeone

    I don’t get why people panic after a couple friendlies. In typical Mundo fashion(For the 10 years I have been here, but it really started 3-4 years ago) people begin to hit the panic button almost right away. All you hear are complaints and optimism is virtually an endangered specie. There is a reason why some of the original posters have vanished or limited their posting.

    Shessh.

      Jack, I agree.

      I’m not sure why everyone is this negative about it. For one, these are only friendly matches. Two, we’re lucky we even have a team. Three, several players, a lot of them would have been vital to this team, are not playing due to the AFA and clubs not allowing them. Four, the coach took the job as a last resort. Five, no preparation.

      It’s a good thing we are even going to the Olympics.

      1. pablo dennison

        agreed, we have some good players their but some fantastic ones are not like icardi, dybala etc this team has had no time together and its no real surprise they are not destroying the world in friendlie no 2

    Dear Olarticoechea,
    Your team sucks, Calleri,Espinoza and Correa suck, how the heck is Correa wearing the number 10 jersey a jersey worn by Maradona, Messi, Riquelme etc, the only satisfying thing with ur team is the defense and goallie and ascacibar, martinez, Thank you
    Sincerely Stevens

    WHat for Gomez and Arzura in 88 minutes. Olarticoechea you idiot.

    1. miskan

      All 86 exponents are idiot manager

  5. Istiaque

    you know what, correa is a carbon copy of di maria in every bad way imaginable. dribble unnecessarily, hesitate to pass, ignore obvious and better passing options and being a show poney. another bad thing is he is slower than di maria.

    1. Gonzalo

      exactly

    2. Jack!

      Correa is only 21, lets relax a little bit before we start discounting players, yeah?

  6. Istiaque

    another cb in fullback position. no link up play in midfield and non existent forwards. all 3 forwards are crap.

    1. Gonzalo

      Why our 1st game was best? They were good. Now it’s worthless to watch. Of course Mexico is one of the best U-23 teams I think (they will defend the title) but our team so poor.

      Lo Celso in, Arzura in, Pavon in, Gomez in

  7. Gonzalo

    It seems like we going to RIo without forwards. Pavon is the last hope

  8. Gonzalo

    This team has idiots instead forwards

  9. Gonzalo

    Calleri and Espinoza are horrible again. Correa too

    1. miskan

      Magallan post as fb..typecal Argentina coach..

      1. Gonzalo

        Formations 3:4:3 is shitty if CB Magallan plays offensive like Gomez

        1. Gonzalo

          I mean 442 with Magallan as FB

  10. Ghostdeini

    Strong words from Sampaoli that he wants to honor his Sevilla contract. Perez Sampaoli doesn’t convince him as Simeone and Bielsa. Fernando Marin said the government will nor pay the release clause. My only hope remains Berizzo but he looks like an outsider, he said they should talk to Celta first. the other candidates don’t impress. I am really worried and this circus will go another week at least because Perez said hopes to present the coach on next Thursday or Friday. Interim coach is also an option.

    1. guled

      Interim is the best solution at this moment.their choice is russo but they want messi to return(for income reasons) so they are trying to seduce him with high profile offensive coach. At this point they don’t have a choice they either have to go with interim or choose russo and forget about messi.

  11. Gonzalo

    Lo Celso and Arzura should play

  12. Gonzalo

    Are the Mexico boys that wwere finalist of U-20 World Cup?
