I think when we judge sabella as a coach we sometimes become one-sided. some becomes over-supportive and some criticize him like like he is maradona version 2. the truth is IMO is that test of his temperament and judgement as a coach is yet to come . yes he is good and we topped the toughest world cup qualification group but aren't we supposed to be be first with messi ,higuen , aguero , dimaria ?? the problem is when people compare him with batista and maradona he appears to be the greatest Argentine coach of current generation and i agree with them from that point of view . What I like about him is that he knows defense is out Achilles heel . what i don't like him is like most previous coaches he is arrogant . he likes to give his preferred player chances after chances and he does not bother for the others who are at least as good or better. perfect example is rojo .... though i will happily admit he introduced some players in the later stage and . the problem is if rojo makes some mistakes and we lose for that the villain would be sabella although he might have set his tactics right .The benefit of using the best or close to best player possibly in every position is that you know you have tried for the best . I also yet to see how he motivates the player for the big stage. the individual players quality in the later stage of the game is so close that tiny difference can make huge impact upon players . But I have my trust on sabella I hope he makes the best possible teams and best possible decisions before and during the game respectively.

Kudos, Mafioso. The Uruguay match actually proved a few things beyond doubt. First, Maxi Rodriguez would be more than just 1 among 23 members for us in Brazil. We can actually trust him in big matches as well and hope when time comes, he can win us a match or two. Second, Lucas Biglia is a fighter with class and grit. Provided he has a fine season ahead and arrives in Brazil fit, we can finally have a good replacement for Mascherano if need be.

We wouldn't know these if Sabella hadn't tried them in the first place!!

Is it about bashing Sabella anyhow? -_-

Everybody wanted to see the alternative players in action.Sabella did that,our bench players put a great fight and we only lost due to a very poor decision from the Brazilian ref.We got the assurance that Maxi and Biglia is very capable player and ready for the big event...And all for this now Sabella is a villain?

Who cares that our subs played against Uruguay? We almost beat them in Uruguay were it not for a couple of bad ref decisions. It literally did not change the table at all, no reason why people should blame Sabella for that.

Tony Montana, it was a great decision by Sabella. I am sure the subs who played that game were very happy with that decision.
It was a good gesture for the clubs and it is good for the national team to have a good relationship and understanding with the clubs.

Finally, it was a meaningless game for Argentina, our top place and seeding in the world cup was guaranteed, why shouldn't we have tried new possibilities and new players? I am even for playing with our B team against Nigeria if our first position is guaranteed by then.

Tony Montana I got you, but when you look at the big picture that win for Uruguay shake up the entire FIFA seeding..If Uruguay had lost we wouldn't have a Holland and Spain in the same group because Holland would have been the seeded team instead of Uruguay..We did not draw with Venezuela at home we did beat them 3 - 0.

Goes to show you that Sabella isnt respected by his peers...i guess everyone thinks that Argentina finish exactly where they should have given their talent...1st place...honestly i think Argentina should have done better with three straight draws against Bolivia! venezuela! and colombia at home plus a weak defeat against Uruguay which showed no HEART or HUEVOS by letting aguero, DiMaria, higuain, Zabaleta all go back to Europe.... i have played professional baseball and no manager would ever let unhurt player leave the team to avoid injury... thats BULLSHIT...makes those players appear above the rest of the team! the B team was fighting their balls off against Uruguay and the STARS left them to fight alone...BAD coaching move Sabella...

A few years back, People were even thinking Argentina should be managed by a foreign manager! It had everything to do with Diego and Batista regime I believe! Nowadays it seems like there are endless world-class Argentine managers out there. 2 Argentine managing the top 2 sides of spain, 1 in EPL, 3 national teams are managed by the Argentinians! Bravo!

Happy new year from Bangladesh everyone!! May this year brings peace to everyone, and a world cup to Argentina!

Apart from the early bump at the beginning of the 2014 WCQ campaign, Argentina pretty much sail through the qualifiers..But on the other hand Chile and Colombia were struggling to qualify then Pekerman was given Colombia job, same too for Sampaoli with Chile.. I don't mind Sabella not winning because he was clearly the better coach out of the 3, but I'm fine as long as no Brazilian made the top 3.

Agree with pablo.d. Very weird that Sabella didn't even make the top three. I guess whoever votes for this award was looking at the big progress made with Colombia and Chile, but even so...
