Guys, I really doubt any Latin American based players will be called for Romania, simply on the basis that they usually avoid doing so to reduce travel for players (given that it is a friendly, not a competitive match).

To get to Romania out of Argentina or Brazil or Mexico would take a full day there and back in a short time frame. I would be surprised to the the likes of Maxi or Basanta called for the match on that basis alone, though I could be wrong.

Realistically, the midfielders called for Romania games are: Masche, Gago, Banega, Biglia, Cambiasso, Di Maria, Maxi, Augusto, and Sosa. At least 8 of them. So the new name will only be Cambiasso only. That's the best guess.

making too much seachanges now is disastrous. I go with deb - Mascherano, Gago, Banega, Biglia, Maxi, Di Maria is the 6 confirmed . the last 7th spot should go to alvarez as he can be a right winger back up & provide decent playmaking capabilities ( atleast as a sub instead of full 90 minutes ) . di maria will be left based for NT & maxi cannot be a full 90min right attacking midfield /winger .... hence a back up there is critical .

Kidult: Botta is only starting in Europe and he looks better than Alvarez (very weak lately) alredy. Although he was injured near one year. Lamela is out of form and injured... Banega whose you are talking about is the player a few years ago. Currently he's shade yourself.

Please don't call the devil, he'd scare the hell out of our opponents!

For god's sake, why do we need Sosa? Are we that poor in producing midfielders or if we take a look at our disposal, aren't we going to find solid names with the ability to make the squad!

Sanchez Mino, Enzo Perez, Cartabia, Yes even Botta could be tried out if he performs well in the upcoming matches, he has a lot to offer and I saw him in the few min's he played with Inter, was very efficient hard working tracking back and defending, let alone his attacking ability, which is a given gift! Note: here you need a side midfielder, where if Alvarez isn't going to make it due to the injury, Sabella has Augusto in his mind, but he should try a new name against Romania!

I haven't seen Sosa play that many games this season to say he's excelling..Sosa have been coming off the bench in most of Atleti games since his arrival at the club..Sosa at this point doesn't deserve to be in the final 23, but I have no problem with him being call up for the friendly game in march.

Correct. So Mascherano, Gago, Banega, Biglia, Maxi, Di Maria - these 6 are confirmed.

In addition to the comments of el pricipe- I'd like analyze our area of weakness:

-Most of the goals conceded, were form a leak in our LB spot, where Rojo had no clue of defending and caused the disposition of the Cbs, Fede or whoever along with the DMs Masch, Biglia or whoever trying to cover his area opining gaps in the mid of our defending lines!

-Set pieces, weakness in Romero's predictions for corner kicks or fouls, hesitating in taking decisions to react or stay between the posts.

-Shaky man marking at times when our CBs get interrupted by the players returning back to the box and don't have the height of proper air defending (short players in the box for set pieces interrupt the twin towers)!

It all needs a bit of concentration from the players along with reorganizing the tasks in corners or fouls! Here comes Sabella's responsibility to clarify his instructions. No more no less!


That was my point of view, you might have more to add!

Thanks to the injury of one (or two) of the fantastic four in the past. It enabled Sabella to train his "plan b". His plan b is still: fantastic four but with different players. Sometimes we would see Di Maria, Aguero, Palacio, and Lavezzi. Another time we saw Di Maria, Palacio, Aguero, and Higuain. So whether the original fantastic four (Di Maria, Messi, Aguero, and Higuain) is available or not, Sabella will keep using the 4 players with very offensive minded tactic, so called the fantastic four.

I was thinking that when one of the fantastic four was unavailable, Sabella would create a more balanced tactic that used only 3 of the fantastic four and added an extra DM or defenside minded midfielder instead, but that was not the case. Sabella seemed to still want to practice the fantastic four tactic with different players.

@Deb

If you ask me, I don't think it is a good idea to maintain high line in midfield because Sabella has successfully fixed our weakness in the last 20 years: counter attack defense. For me Sabella is very similar to Simeone tactic wise (well Simeone is very similar to Sabella actually) in that they both love to LET the opponents attacking them and the more the opponents attack them, the more their main weapon, which is counter attack works! You see Argentina and Atletico are both deadly on counter attack.

Watch again the game of Paraguay vs. Argentina. That was the perfect example. The more Paraguay wanted to score against us badly, the more we scored against them.

Angel Di Maria is a perfect counter attack player. If he ever moves to Atletico coached by Siomeone, I think Atletico would be better than they are now.

If we maintain a high line in midfield, we would do what Barca did. We won't do any counter attack with such tactic. Yes we would dominate, but highly unlikely counter attack. It's Bielsa thing to love to dominate posessions, not Sabella's.

We have changed from:

Bielsa = Pep = Barca = Spain

to

Sabella = Atletico = Mourinho = Ancelotti

That's our new DNA. Now great counter attack teams like Germany or Brazil will face hard time when facing us because we are a lot more disciplined in defending. Their counter attack won't work easily.

Think about this. How amazing is this: we have the best forward line in the world, the best fantastic four, but under Sabella, he only conceded ONCE in counter attack, which was our B team against Uruguay in WCQ. Other than that, we never conceded goals. Think how many times Basile and Maradona especially conceded goals by counter attack? On paper, we look a very attacking team. In reality, we actually love to play counter attack, like Atletico.

@Aslam: I would do your lineup but instead of Biglia put in Cambiasso. Have more cover for Rojo especially as he is still learning to play fullback and gets caught out a lot, relieves pressure off the defense, and allows the fullbacks to make some more runs.

Biglia is getting very good though. I am glad he is on the NT. The move to Lazio was a great one for him.

Deb I like Aslam line up but I believe Sabella will use the 4-3-3 in the group stage then as the tournament progress on, he will then tweak the line up a bit maybe dropping one of the FAB 4.

@Aslam I would switch Biglia for a player like Ricki Alvarez..I rather see Biglia as a sub he will be crucial for us coming off the bench in a long tournament.


Deb

@Aslam: I agree with u always. We have to maintain a high line in our midfield so to expose our backline less. I often wonder why it wouldn't be a good idea to play Mascherano and Biglia together. After all, they kind of ensure the pressure on our defenders are much lesser. That allows the Zabaletas, the Gagos and the Di Marias to venture into the opposition boxes much easily. Besides, it's not that Biglia and Mascherano can't go up with safety and create some good movements either.

What do you guys say? @Johnny, @Kidulthood, @el principe, @Mafioso?

I enjoy watching Argentina like you especially when they play with fab4. But as i told many times before i am against this idea in big games. It would be more balanced to play 4-2-3-1 instead of 4-3-3 but we dont have another player like Dimaria to utilize this sytem.

There will be days there you cant score against well arranged and good defending team. So it is very important to keep clean sheet. We need best GK (Pray for Caballero),top defense and a 'team defending' for this. As we don't posses great defenders unit, i think it is better for us to play with either 2 DM or one DM with 2 CM in big gmaes. We have to cut one of our forwards in those games otherwise we will be exposed easily. When we lose the ball every time they will reach at to your box. I think we have many good players in the center of the pitch to call for, Mascherano,Gago,Banega, Biglia,Cambiasso,Yacob..etc who plays at high level.So it will be very good for Argentina to use them and find a different formation in big games..i would like to see this formation in big games...leaving Messi-Aguero(Higuain) upfront supported by Dimaria and a safe midfield behind.

----------------Caballero-------------------------
Zabaleta------Fede--------Garay--------------LB
----------------Mascherano----------------------
------Gago-------------------------Biglia-------
------------------Dimaria-----------------------

@Outaw, i would have to put Mascherano as our 2nd MVP. Gago is instrumental for us, but withouth Masch we would not have finished 1st in the WCQ. Masch is the rock from which the Fab4 and Gago spring forth from.

1. Alvarez is unfit to NT. From his bustling result nothing. He's ridiculous one-legged player what was showing against Ecuador. Gaitan, Botta... are much better...
2. Gago is most important player our team after Messi.

@haman you're right...i'm not sure if Sabella would call up Caballero, and Cambiasso, and especially Caballero. He sort of gave us the answer about his goalkeepers for WC...seems like no matter what happened to those 3, he will bring them with him to Brazil.

The match against Romania should bring in the final candidates for the squad of the WC. The next couple of matches after that should put the confirmed squad in a test along with being considered as a warmup for the WC.

Some might wonder, why Sabella didn't introduce those names earlier and if better players were called rather than wasting time on Sosa and fellas. The team would've strengthened and it would've eased the task for the sloth. However, don't forget that its still a rumor, where nothing is confirmed until being officially announced!

@moonbear i think Messi is just frustrated, i mean he was the go to guy for Barca for many years, and they achieved absolutely unreal success. Which is why Messi is being pegged as the greatest of all time, now Martino is wanting to make him into a playmaker with almost a "supporting role". I say supporting role because it's absolutely absurd to turn somebody who scored 91 goals in a year to now be the guy giving the assists.

Honestly I liked martino in newells and Paraguay but now? I don't know what the hell the guy is doing, If Barca had players like Aguero, Lewandowski those solid finishers then by all means change Messi into a number 10...But i mean freaking Alexis being the primary target?

@Deb i agree with you , martino pushing messi for playing much deeper than how it was in past.

golden question is is messi happy....?
we can say it is good for NT , but we need happy and more enthusiastic messi too , for that he have to score tons.

Haven't posted in a while. Couple of points:

1) I think there should be a premium on fitness, speed and athleticism in the midfield for the world cup. This is a short tournament (7 games maximum) with lots of quick turnarounds. If given a choice, I would not take players that are artists, read the game well BUT lack speed and fitness in the midfield. With Messi, Gago and Di Maria on the pitch, we have all the creativity we need.

With our defense/goalie being our obvious weakness, there will be games when our midfield will have to track back aggressively and help out our average defense. This is where the lack of pace from someone like Cambiasso or say a Riquelme-type would hurt us. Imagine trying to protect a 1-goal lead against Germany and suddenly we have an unlucky bounce or turnover going the other way. Your midfield better be able to cover those mistakes that happen in ever game so that the opposition speed demons are not running 1:1 against your defenders all day. Not a problem in the 1st few games but by game 4,5,6 fatigue will be a factor.

2) I don't usually pay much attention to the crap on goal.com but this article really worries me:

http://www.goal.com/en/news/12/spain/2014/02/06/4600263/messi-has-lost-his-passion-for-football-former-barcelona

If remotely true, this would be a really bad time for Messi to lose that passion for the game…just a few months before the most important tournament of his life. I don't know much about Angel Cappa but I hope he is saying these things for motivational reasons.

We have all noticed that Messi is the not same as say a year ago at this time. I assumed it was a fitness issue…not a passion issue.

3) Someone else said it below but it bears repeating. For me, on the national team, Messi has always been more special with Gago on the pitch. It is not the most reassuring thing to rely on Gago for 3 weeks+ but if he stays healthy and is on form, this will have the most positive impact on Messi's game…trust me. Go back and watch the games when Gago is not on the pitch. Messi is not at his best and tries to do too much. I'm not saying Gago is a great player, but I am saying the chemistry between him and Messi is unmistakable to the naked eye.

4) Willy…it's time. Enough said.

Had Messi been 33 or 34 years old, then Martino can switch his role to playmaker, but not when Messi is at his golden age. It's too soon.

Martino is an Argentine. Of course he will root for Argentina in the World Cup, but limiting Messi to playmaker could easily cost him his job. If he gets sacked at the end of the season or before the end of the season, I think for a lot of people, he would be not that much better than AVB, one of the worst coaches in EPL this year. Think of Batista. Who wants to hire him now? He made a mistake by calling Tevez and it ruined his career.

@Dinucci: What you just said may actually be true. Messi is no longer the False 9 or even the striker in Martino's Team. He might be doing all this to achieve the Argentinean dream of seeing Messi fit and fine for the world cup.

I would still say he is making a mistake. Lionel Messi in Barcelona will always look for goals. Lots and lots of goals. You better give him his chances so he achieves those goals without much efforts. Just like Pep Guardiola would do. If you do not give him his fair chances, he would be trying anyway. And that would then include more wear and tear of his muscles. Messi wouldn't be happy just assisting his team mates, No Way.

Watch the second goal of Barca-Sociedad last night:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEXhLLcpvww

Under Pep or Tito, the one breaking the offside trap was ALWAYS Messi, never Alexis. Under Martino, it was Alexis. It was extremely rare in the past, but it becomes common now.

I repeat...The first scenario: Alexis must go or Messi will be unhappy. The second scenario: Martino must change his philosophy or he will be out in months.

Banega is more of attacking midfielder than a central/defensive midfielder. He has shown this time and time again. Cambiasso will likely be replacing him. Cambiasso does box to box well....as of now, Banega does not do it well consistently.

Regardless, I'd rather have Cuchu than Lamela or Alvarez. We have enough attacking players in Maxi, DiMaria, Messi, Aguero, Higuain, Lavezzi, Palacio. We need a stable midfield to relieve the pressure on our defense and to make sure the ball gets pushed up some without guys like Leo having to come back tot he defensive line to get it a la 2010.

it should be biglia v/s cambiasso - just one of them as a back up to masherano . I don't think cambiasso can replace gago . banega is a better back up for gago. 7th midfielder slot should go to alvarez. he is versatile as a right winger & can add creativity to midfield
top 4 will be di maria , gago, mascherano, maxi.

It’s just rumors so far, but hopefully they are true. Sabella should rate current achievements above achievements from previous seasons. No player has a subscription to the national team!
Willy is without doubt the best goalkeeper with an Argentinian passport. He should be our number 1.
Romero should not make the final 23. Sure he played many games for us in the past years, but he chose money over playing time. So goodbye.
Lamela was fantastic at Roma, he now warms the bench at Spurs. So out he goes.
Andujar lost his spot between the posts. If he does not returns in the coming weeks, out he goes.
Cambiasso plays almost every game for Inter and stands out. He is in better form than Banega or Biglia. He should be in.
Fingers crossed that Sabella makes the right decisions. If he calls both Romero and Andujar he shows loyalty and stupidity. No sane national coach would call bench sitters. Can you imagine this decision by Löw, Van Gaal, Scolari or Prandelli?

1. Gago isn't still injured. He is healthy and rather in form.
2. End the Tevez in NT. He was our bane in Copa america 2011 an last World Cup and he never coming back to NT. Thank God.
3. Yes, Cambiasso is ideal sub for Gago because he can be perfectly in tackling and engaged in attacking. In second place Yacob. And Kranevitter is also our hoping.
4. Fernandez and Insua wasn't bad yesterday.
5. As travis has pointed out we have many options in setting our backs. I think that arrangement Campagnaro (Roncaglia), Musacchio, G.Rodriguez, Orban would be even better than Zabaleta, Fernendez, Garay, Orban.

@el principe: I know what you mean. But I am not one of those Di Maria haters. In fact, despite being a Barcelona supporter, I constantly watch Real Madrid just because of Di Maria. I enjoy watching him. He has an amazing left foot. If there was a rule that football had to be played only by left foot, Di Maria would be the best player in the world by far.

But some people don't like those negative attitudes he sometimes try to display on the field. Trying to get an opposition player booked by some cheap trick of faking injury. We all love Messi not only because he is the best player in the world but also because of his attitude. I hope you know what I am trying to say here.

This type of attitude may harm Argentina in crucial matches in the world cup, if the referee is smart enough to spot those tricks.

It would be TOO MUCH to ask Sabella play Willy, Gonzalo and Musacchio all of a sudden in the backline. I mean that would be a complete disaster. What is the use of Garay and Fernandez playing together for so many years now then? They played the whole of qualifying together, and now we are going to replace both of them and then to top it all, keep the new centre backs above a keeper who is also new?

All that 4 months before a world cup?

On a side note...
Although still fairly young, I would LOVE to see Angel Correa on the squad in the near future, the kid has some amazing talent, love to watch this kid play!
Bright future!
Cuchu isn't such a bad call I guess, personally I don't think he's as great as he once was, but def smart and experienced player... Shit, if sabe calls hums up, might as well call pupi up too, besides the wasteful rojo (BAAAARF), no business on the NT !!!
Pupi, although much slower and older, still is an amazing player/person, and extremely smart player, aside from messi, pupi has been one of my favorite players of all time...
It would be a dream come true for me to see him play on the nt again for his last wc, but seriously doubt it'll happen...

On another side note...
What do u guys think of _Kranevitter ?? Potential future masche replacement ???
We shall see I guess, although I would die to see yacob called up, at this point I don't see sabe calling him up at all, even if he is killing in in England... Pretty sad..

Banega isn't playing for boca, gago plays for boca, banega was loaned to NOB (the best in arg) .. ;)
I do tend to get a little skeptical when young players come back from Europe to play back in the homeland and then play for our national team. My fear is, arg style of play is completely different compared to some of the euro players, and don't have the monsterous players that are in la liga, Serie A, epl, etc...so I fear they'll tend to lose their touch/form...
all though the difference in Argentina now, is it is no longer boca/river, it is extremely competitive and even across the board, I haven't seen a league like this in years!
So can someone amuse me and tell me, playing in arg league is not such a bad thing !?
At least for shits and giggles ? Thanks!!!

Yeah, hit us with a painkiller. rumors remain rumors until they're proven!

However, it'd be a great reasonable move from Sabella.

It's not too much, our team needs three names at least to be added to the squad, besides Willy, Mussachio and G. Rodriguez should be tried out as a back ups, they could even surplus Fede & Garay!

It's the first time let us say in last decade we have plenty of good names for the CB spot.
Name them: Fede, Garay, Campa, Mussachio, Rodriguez, Otamendi, Lopez y Vergini!
Besides the first three two out of the remaining names should make the final list.

Add willy behind them standing between the posts and you have a close to perfection squad that could be memorable For centuries!

That's how it looks like, the remaining is on the sloth!

That'll be definitely a good news for all Willy's fans here(including myself)! I still hope that he'll be our GK even though I think Sabella won't change his GK 5 months before the WC. I agree with Argentuban, the time that players spent together is very important. For some positions, it's hard to make any change few months before the WC, if it has to be changed, should be done like 1 year before. Cambiasso should be the 2nd backup solution if Gago is still injured. I think Sabella will still use Biglia as number 6 and Cambiasso his sub. Anyway, we need a 3-men midfield which runs for Messi. Aguero and Higuain do the pressing on the defenders so that Messi only focus on passing, dribbling and scoring.

@Dinucci Agreed, call Gonzalo and Masucchio + one more Ansaldi, and our backline is a tough one to break in.

Caballero
Campagnaro//Gonzalo//Masucchio//Ansaldi
or
Caballero
Zabaleta//Fede//Garay//Orban
or
Caballero

or my favorite backline:

Zabaleta

Re: we have a young back line, team ,etc. and they have no World Cup experience:

Yes, but that have a history playing TOGETHER and in this system and understanding what is expected of them and what each other's strengths and weaknesses are. If you called up Fernandez out of the blue and he had never played on the team or with Garay, it would be insanity, for example.

A guy that can fit in and lead right away in goal or in midfield.....someone like Barovero, as talented a she is in goal, or someone like Yacob, as talented as he is.....they aren't those guys who can start and fill in right away with little to no time to be with the team. Guys like Caballero and Cambiasso are.

Yacob is 26 with no tournament or competitive match experience at the NT level and no CL experience. DM/CM is a position that requires lots of experience to be effective in a new setting.

If he were a 30+ year old veteran who had played in high level competition and played before for the NT, it would be a no brainer.

The other players we have his age and with his limited range of experience were already incorporated into the team long ago.
