  1. Antonio Montana

    No maroni from boca?

  2. Gonzalo

    I don’t think Conechny is player for No.10. This is not the same player as he was in Argentina U-17. He is fat.

  3. Gonzalo

    No Cristian Romero, no RB Molina (2 assists on Sudamericano).

  4. Gonzalo

    I think Palacios is partner for Ascacibar. He is quite tall and stronger phisically than Colombatto. But I agree about Cagliari player. We need creative player in the middle and hope in Palacios or Colombatto.

    The most important inclusion isn’t Ponce… who did virtually nothing since he’s in Europe, but Santiago COLOMBATTO (Cagliari, Italy). Assuming Ubeda does the right thing… basically starting him as s starter, the midfield is bound to be hugely upgraded with Colombatto. A very promising prospect.

    1. Gonzalo

      Colombatto is very good passer.
