Roberto AYALA: "TEVEZ should be given a chance"

Roberto AYALA spoke about Carlos TEVEZ and who he thinks should be the next coach for Argentina.

Roberto AYALA spoke about Carlos TEVEZ not being on the Argentina National Team and he also said who he thinks should be the next coach for Argentina. Here's what he had to say:

"TEVEZ should be on the Argentina National Team. For his quality, which is enormous. Unfortunately, the truth is that it doesn't look like he has a chance."

"I've always respected SABELLA's decisions, but with 3 months to go until the World Cup, if TEVEZ keeps playing like he has been playing with Juventus, he should be given a chance."

AYALA when asked on who he thinks should coach Argentina next:
"No doubt, Diego SIMEONE."

No Tevez. Just like his ex-club mate Riquelme, this guy is a dressing room divider. And our team needs as little of that as possible. I'll take Messi any day over any other Argentine player. I like Tevez, he identifies with so many Argentines but the guy needs to be the center of attention and on this Argentina squad, this simply cannot be the case. Messi is the center of our team and as a player, you either play for him or you are out. It's as simple as that.

So, please, no more of "Messi in tailspin" or "Messi in decline" -- nonsense to those of you who write headlines. If the Messi posse is fine, so is he. If the Messi Posse is messy, it's only natural he will be too. Amen. " Graham Haunter "

When you beginning with faith to Sabella then he take you down a peg or two. Put it mildly - he is so controversial. Stubborn, headstrong or just convinced to his reason. But Romero isn't good goalkeeper...

Higuain didn't had anything with my Girlfriend;) I havn't confident to him never. He hasn't gifts which would make him really go-ahead forward. When Palacio is instead Higuain our team looking better. He also isn't big player but bringing on more flight and lightness in field.

Barcelona has declined a bit, so naturally Messi has not had such good service as when he was the king of the world. He still has a pretty good goal/assist to game ratio, and that's taking into account that his first few games after his injury he was played as a playmaker and got no goals at all. He was pretty good today against Manchester City.

Some feel Messi is not his usual best because a) he is keeping himself reserved for the world cup, and b) he is just back from an injury.

But as things are evident from his new role in Barca and also several articles online like the one posted just below, things are not so simple apparently.

Lionel Messi is no longer the go-to man in Barca. If you watch their matches closely, this is as clear as anything. The game doesn't revolve around him anymore and that's why we see him digging so deep so often so he can collect the ball and create a role for himself. Call it inefficiency of the Sanchezs and the Neymars to locate him perfectly or new Tata tactics to play the game wide, the truth is the no. of passes to Messi has declined drastically.

Barca's tikitaka needs great ball players with great first touch and perfect teamplay. Like Villa had, Thiago had. And Iniesta has. Iniesta is no longer a regular, while the other two are gone.

The one-twos with Alves are also rarity these days. There's no diagonal run for the full backs as the article sayd, and it's true if u have watched their matches recently.

In short, Messi may win the world cup, may not. But those who think he is just calm for that tournament and will be the old self once 2014-15 starts may just be mistaken. Is he past his prime? Most probably NO. Is he unhappy with Tata and this new Barca squad? Most probably YES.

If Simeone was the coach Sosa would start every game, he had the choice to bring in Sosa to Atletico and he did, if Simeone was the coach we would look like Brazil under Dunga. Except better because our quality is a bit nicer, we would have a solid defense with 2 forwards most likely and then 2 5's Di Maria and then a sosa type player. People really need to stop calling for Simeone, right now we have Sabella who is a great coach whether the Tevez fans agree or disagree.

Alejandro Sabella, used 71 players in his three years in charge of the Albiceleste , in which he played 32 games , but none of the calls took account of Carlos Tevez, the striker of Juventus of Italy . 3 of those 32 games were Roca cup games that were played between domestic players of Argentina an Brazil.

In that sense, Javier Mascherano (Barcelona ), Lionel Messi ( Barcelona) and Sergio Romero ( Monaco ) are players with more presence in the Sabella era, with 23 games . 3 of those were Roca cup games that were played between domestic players of Argentina an Brazil.

Tevez , meanwhile , does not figure in the plans of coach , although the "Apache" shines in the Italian league, where he leads the scoring charts with 15 goals (up to the 26th day ) and keeps his team in higher positions .

Sabella took over as national team in August 2011 , replacing Sergio Batista, and almost three years at the helm he played 32 games team, which won 19 , drew nine and lost four with 62 goals scored and 28 against.

The top scorer in the Sabella era is captain Lionel Messi, with 20 goals , followed by Italy Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, with 14 , while the third location Sergio " Kun" Agüero (Manchester City) appears 7.

The 71 players who played Sabella called the South American Qualifiers , which qualified the team to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil , but also many friendly matches in different and remote parts of the world , such as Calcutta and Bangladesh.

Among the players who played more games with " Pachorra " also include Ángel Di María (Real Madrid ) with 22 presences and defenders Federico Fernandez (Napoli ) and Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City) 21 both.

Romero is the biggest matches interrupted , but the arc so Argentinian Mariano occupied Andújar ( Catania Italy ) four times, Agustin Orion (Boca ) on three occasions, and Oscar Ustari (Sunderland England ) twice.

The paradox are those players who played only one game under the command of Sabella and on that list that 's up names 26 players , in some cases striking .

For example we can find Oscar Ahumada (All Boys) , Francisco Cerro (Racing ) , Mauro Icardi ( Inter) , Emanuel Gigliotti (Boca ) , Lucas Orbán ( Girondins Bordeaux ) , Rogelio Funes Mori (Benfica B, Portugal ) Victor Zapata (Independiente ) and Jonas Gutierrez (Norwich , England, and a permanent fixture in the era of Diego Maradona as coach ) , among others.

Sabella In front of the selection cycle the team had three expelled ( Ezequiel Lavezzi , Higuain, Mascherano ) . In addition, he had eight penalties for, converted seven of which being the only one blocked by the German keeper Ter Stegen Messi .

Then had three matches with Venezuela and Ecuador (two of them by Qualifying in both cases ) was measured twice with Chile, Bolivia , Colombia , Paraguay , Peru and Uruguay , all on your way towards the World Cup this year.

We actually missed the try of Gaitan, Pastore, D'Allesandro, WIlly or even Cambiasso

Atletico Vs Milan 4-1.
Sosa with an assist... but it involved him losing control, slipping over and Diego Costa taking the ball off his toes running down the right channel and hitting a diagonal shot. Haha! You can see it was not intentional as his reaction was to raise his knee when on the ground and try to claw the ball back from Costa!

@ elprincipe is correct, the internal politics of the AFA has cost the albicelestes ALOT!
However I am going to make an observation and would like the opinion of all the Argentines on this board. It seems to me that in recent years many people in Argentina have come to regard the NT as a collection of 'sell outs' (i.e. players who play in foreign leagues instead of the primera) and thus they'd rather have the player of the people on a losing team than not have him on a winning one.
This assessment might be unfair or out of place but that's what it seems like it to me.
I also remember reading an article a while back stating how many argentines have stopped going to international home games because they don't care about the NT anymore. This was exemplified by the WCQ against Bolivia, which had a record low attendance.

What do you guys think? Is it possible that we're over relying on 'home support' in the WC?

As for Tevez, well I don't care about his club form because he is RUBBISH when playing for the national team and the stats back that up.
I said this before and I will keep saying it, a players club form should merit them a chance to prove themselves in the national team but if they fail to prove themselves when given the said chance then they should not be on the NT.
Tevez is a NT flop, always has been and not only that but the national team doesn't need him.
Now some of you would say 'yeah but we'd rather have him over lavezzi or palacio' and I have 2 things to say to that:
First, Palacio and Elpocho are warriors who know their place on the team and are happy to come off the bench and give their all at any time; Tevez obviously doesn't.
Second, Lavezzi has played 10 times better for the albicelestes in 2014 WCQ than Tevez did in 2010 WCQ. Don't believe me? well lets look at that way, lavezzi with his limited playing time scored 3 goals (one of which was a vital one against Bolivia) and provided 3 more assists (one of which was a vital one against peru in the away game).
Now what did Tevez manage? well he missed a penalty that cost the albicelestes a game and he got red carded, which ended up costing the team yet another game.

Conclusions
1.Lavezzi >>>>>> Tevez any day of the week and twice on sunday.
2. you're club form means jack if you get your chance for the NT and blow it repeatedly! While conversely your poor or uneventful club form means jack if you get your chance for the national team and prove yourself (i.e. Gago) provided that the said player is getting regular playing time (hence why I still have an issue with Romero starting despite the fact that I've always liked him and has just recently proven himself.

what do you think about messi playing on the right, does he have a tendency to go into the centre where he usually plays?. i think i saw him do this a few times against romania; should he be more disciplined and stay out on the right and let higuain occupy the centre area? or do you think all three should switch and rotate?

-------Aguero-Higuain-Messi

--------DiMaria---Benega
--------------Masch

-----Rojo/Garay/Fede/Zabaleta
--------------Romero
Subs
Lavezzi
Palacio
Maxi
Gago
Biglia
Basanta
Campagnaro
Otamendi
Gino Peruzzi
Andujar
Orion
Lamela

You think this is a good starting line up and sub bench? decided to take a chance with Lamela, left tevez out as he might cause problems and under perform.

I see Maxi, Levezzi and Palacio as good cover which brings options to the attack with Lamela also. I think Maxi or Gago can fill in for di maria if he has any problems. Biglia cover for masch. The rest are four defenders which are an unknown quantity; was thinking about playing masche in defence if fede gets wobbly. I have three concerns, right centre midfiled (Benega) Rojo at left back and fede at centre back.

If higuain gets injured messi or aguero can play there and we have options for right and left.

Yes he's the fourth best striker in the pecking order in the NT but his past behavior and attitude is costing him a place in the WC. This is the same guy who said in a interview that he was not interested in being in the NT that time. Brazil left out an in-form madman Edmundo for a young Ronaldo in 94 and came back home with the bacon. Again in 98 Giovani Elber was a top striker but was left out yet they they won. Maybe the same thing might happen with Argentina if Tevez is left out.

tevez is good, but his time is done for argentina, maybe copa 2015 depending on coach

he was crying to ply in 2006 over saviola, so was picked and he wa too scared to take a penalty. we allknow messi and tevez together dont work vs a good defense an dbrazil/germany saw this.

he cost is with his sending offs.

he cries when subbed off

not just Argentina, did a habit in England too. how can you refuse to come on and play!!!!

he is a world class player but his attitude is wrong and can pi55 people off

And you are right. Carlos Tevez, even though he is down a few pounds in weight and scoring goals a lot, is not the guy we need after so much of hard work and build up for all these years under Sabella. I really doubt Sabella is thinking about him. And I agree, there shouldn't be any political pressure on him just 3 montsh before such a major tourney. Specially when he has worked so diligently to build a team chemistry all this while and this is the time to reap benefits!!

Man I know everyone is entitled to his opinion. That's the beauty of this board when everyone is "colorful". However, I just want you guys to open your eyes and see the reality.

The winner of the World Cup u-20 often times becomes a perfect standard of how successful a country will become in years. For example:
1. Argentina won the WC u-20 in 1979. 8 years later, the same star that brought them the WC youth, named Diego Maradona brought the WC trophy in 1986 for Argentina.
2. West Germany won it in 1981. 9 years later they won the World Cup in 1990.
3. Brazil won it in 1983, 1985, and 1993 and was a runner up in 1991. As a result they won the World Cup in 1994 and 2002 and was a runner up in 1998.
4. Yugoslavia won it in 1987 and as a result their team became a real force in 1990's with the great Stojkovic, Boban, Proscinecki, Suker etc if you guys can still remember.
5. Portugal with Rui Costa, Couto, and Luis Figo won it twice in 1989 and 1991. As a result, Portugal became one of the scariest teams in a couple of European cups where in one of them they reached semi final only to have a huge controversy where Nuno Gomes was sent off (then he gave his shirt to the referee if you still remember).

Now this is the most insane part: Argentina won it 5 times in the next 7 tournaments: 1995 (Ibagaza), 1997 (Riquelme and Aimar), 2001 (Saviola), 2005 (Messi), and 2007 (Aguero) and we got 0 (ZERO) trophy in years up until now!

That's too bad to be true. Other countries just needed one U-20 trophy to become a real force in the future. But us? OK Maradona's 1979 U-20 team did their part in 1986, but how about the 5 trophies we have had from Ibagaza to Riquelme to Messi to Aguero as our stars. Where is the trophy? Not even a Copa America or Confederation cup ever since Ibagaza won it in 1995....

Well not even a World Cup semi finalist!

You know why? The answer is political issues! We have had so much internal problem within AFA. That ruined everything. Talent wise, Argentina can be more proud than even the 5 times World Cup Champion Brazil as the country that produced the most talents of all time with 6 WC u-20 trophies compared to 5 of Brazil, but come on, we've had only two World Cup and the last one came like what? 10.000 years BC ago or something (1986 to be exact)!

I met an Italian friend of mine just weeks ago and another friend of mine who supports Spain. The Italian guy said, "come on man, we've got 4... you've got only ONE!"

That just to show that World Cup is so prestigious that people would talk about it for hundreds of years.

So now please people, open your eyes. There is big political issue in AFA. Sergio Batista admits it: Batista explained then that they never had any differences and praised Tevez. But in October of last year he confessed: “There was external pressure to have him there. I tried to handle it until the end, but it was hard. The pressure came from above, pressure from the AFA and political pressure. And yes, in that moment I felt like quitting." But he didn’t; if he explained the truth, it would be a scandal. He gave in. And the group exploded before his eyes. He lost the respect and the leadership of that squad that was preparing to break the curse of 18 years without a title.

At the time people, including people here at Mundo were cursing Batista. I saw something else. Not that Batista was that great of a coach, he was OK. But the problem was not Batista, but the political issue. Batista was the victim! A couple of years later (today), finally we've got the answer. The problem is the guy named CARLOS TEVEZ!

Folks, I am not saying that Tevez is the only problem, but he is one of those that bring political issues to the team. Yes if you ask me, political issues is our major, number one, most threatening, most disgusting problem that caused us trophy less in 21 years (since Copa America 1993)!

For me all those who cause political issues must stay away from the national team. I know Grondona is responsible for this too, but we can not bring them to the World Cup nor getting rid of him. The one that we can "still" get rid of is Carlos Tevez.

Period.

Don't get me wrong, I think sabella is doing a pretty good job, and is a fantastic coach, but in all honesty, I think Argentina needs to finally forget about the old generation of coaches and start going with younger fresh talented coaches, el cholo simeone should be the next in line in my book.. Guy has amazed me of what he has done with the teams he's coached, especially with A. Madrid, for one of our very own to create and build a team to compete with barca and RM is unbelievable, especially at his age, with not so many years as a coach.. The guy is doin a phenomenal job.. Hands down.. Maybe it's time for a younger coach, with new stragedys and ideas.. Maybe it's time... Perfect example, look at pep, although Bayern was already pretty solid before he came in, but now thy are winning games by a large amount of goal differentials.. Amazing!
I seriously hate to say this, and it kills me to say this, but unfortunately (with the exception of the fab 3, including masche, gago, maxi) I don't think we have wat it takes to win this next wc.. Personally I see Brazil (unfortunately) and possibly Germany...
Sad but true guys, let's face it..
Defense is STILL horrible, lavezzi doesn't cut it, and rojo shouldn't even be allowed to put on a soccer jersey, and still sabella wants these guys on the team, and thinks they have wat it takes, sorry but I highly doubt it..
We can make ALL the damn excuses in the world, oh it's only a friendly, the pitch was in horrible shape, blah blah blah, bullshit guys!!!! The way arg played with Romania was totally unrecognizable p... It didn't even look like our team, we are talking about a team that didn't even qualify for the wc!!
Thank GOD Romero saved the match..
I'm no expert, but I think it's time for a change in coaching..
I'm not getting any hopes up for this wc, just preparing myself mentally, it kills me cus this might be the last wc to see messi play at his peak/prime..
Sorry not trying to be negative, just my own opinion, so don't kill me..
Please feel free to criticize me if need be, I don't get offended easily, at the end of the day, I love our NT, and have a passion for our team and country, only wish them the best..
But I already see us getting extremely upset at his final list for the wc..

Because there is very little time for Tevez to make up for his lack of appearance in the past 2 years, and he has had his chance twice before. Players don't soon forget the attitudes of former teammates, and our offense is the best in the world. I'm not dropping Palacio or Lavezzi for Tevez when I could get Cambiasso.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

why judge a man by his past only and not give him a chance to prove that he have matured as a man in his personal life and on the football pitch.

In my opinion Tevez success in Italy is because he has grown as a man so he truly deserves a chance on his current form.

Sabella may have to answer questions if he picks Tevez and the team fails but he may be asked to answer even more if he doesn't pick him and pick this under rated player from the German league and the team fails

Let tevez play, he must be made to know that his role may be as a sub.

I am tired of hearing Argentina need a tall number 9..I mean, we have had one for the last two world cups; Julio Cruz in 2006, and Martin Parlemo in 2010, they did not make any difference..Argentina should play to their strength, if all the attackers are 5'8 etc then stick with them rather than picking some average tall number 9 that will not help the team in no shape or form at the world cup..Di Santos? come on Sabella, this is a rookie move, you can do way better than this..

If you want good midfielder in NT who with we may to win in World Cup, forget about Banega, Alvarez and Lamela. They will come in usefull to nothing or even lost us. Gaitan is the one who We need. Maybe Cambiasso, Sosa or Maxi Moralez. How hard it is to believe that Sabella called up Gaitan three times when Eliminations starting. But he was playing O minutes. What for he calling up players like that.

Someone on another blog post this comment a month ago...It was really interesting...

''It’s slightly spurious to compare eras because the soccer world of 2014 is a far different Beast to 1958, where players weren't as physically fit, formations weren't as sophisticated and the quality gap between sides, especially in the international arena, was far wider than today. Yes, that can lead to the oft-trotted out cliché of how there are no easy games in international soccer. But recent World Cups have proven that to be true. The likes of Bulgaria, Croatia, Turkey, South Korea and Uruguay have reached the semi-finals in the last five tournaments, knocking out supposedly superior sides along the way. Pele played in Santos and New York cosmos on league level. We all know where those clubs rank in the world from those days to this date. Pelé didn't score 1,283 goals, but 526 goals came in unofficial friendlies and tour games. He even counted games he played for the Sixth Coast Guard in the military competition. He officially scored 757 goals in 812 games. As great as Pelé's goal scoring ratio was, it pales in comparison to Fernando Peyroteo. Pelé needs a reality check regarding his FIFA World Cup achievements. Most World Cup All-Star appearances: Djalma Santos and Franz Beckenbauer, 3 Most World Cup goals: Ronaldo, 15 Most World Cup goals in one final: Geoff Hurst, 3 Most World Cup goals in one tournament : Just Fontaine, 13 Most World Cup goals in one game: Oleg Salenko, 5 Most World Cup games Lothar Matthäus, 25 Most World Cup games won: Cafu, 16 Most World Cup tournaments: Antonio Carbajal and Lothar Matthäus, 5 Where's Pelé? Pelé played in four FIFA World Cup tournaments but was outperformed in every single one of them. For a man that boasts about his goal-scoring prowess, I find it amusing that he never mentions himself as a Silver Boot winner. Year Golden Boot Winner, goals Pelé's goals 1958 Just Fontaine, 13, 6 1962 Six players tied, 4, 1 1966 Eusébio, 9 1 1970 Gerd Müller, 10, 4 To be fair, Pelé was injured during the 1962 and 1966 World Cup. When he was fully fit for the 1958 and 1970 World Cup, he wasn't the top goal scorer. In fact, he wasn't even Brazil's top scorer during the 1970 World Cup. That accolade went to Jairzinho with seven goals. Pele.. People always ask me: "When is the new Pele going to be born?" Never. My father and mother have closed the factory. When Messi's scored 1,283 goals like me, when he's won three World Cups, we'll talk about it." Messi needs to reach 758 goals instead of 1,284 and needs to win two FIFA World Cups instead of three. Pelé was a member of three World Cup-winning teams, but he sat out the large majority of the 1962 World Cup. It was Garrincha who singlehandedly won the World Cup for Brazil, not Pelé. When Pelé compiled his 125 greatest living footballers list, he didn't include many of his teammates. Regarding the teammates that made the cut: There are two of the greatest right-backs ever in Carlos Alberto and Djalma Santos. Then there is one of the greatest left-backs ever in Nílton Santos. Also a marvelous midfielder in Rivelino. Here are Pelé's teammates who were ineligible for his list: Garrincha (inspired Brazil to win the 1962 FIFA World Cup), Vavá (scored three goals in two World Cup finals) and Didi (1958 World Cup Golden Ball winner). Pelé shockingly omitted teammates: Gérson, Jairzinho, Gilmar, Tostão, Zito, Bellini and Zagallo. I read into the omissions as Pelé's way of downplaying his teammate's role in his success. I would have liked to see Pelé symbolically include Santos strike partner Coutinho on the list as a way of saying thank you. After all, they did supposedly combine for over 1,000 goals. I'll never forget what Gérson, who was Pelé's Xavi, said this about his role in that legendary 1970 World Cup team: Now the interesting thing is this, as incredible as it might seem, I prefer a thousand times over to make the pass, rather than to score the goal. For me this was the glory because this is what I was trained for. It was disgraceful that Pelé forgot about the thousands of passes Gérson made. Meanwhile, Lionel Messi dedicated his FIFA Ballon d’Or to Xavi: "I want to share this with my friend, he deserves it." Has anyone ever wondered were Pelé was when Garrincha's life was spiraling out of control? Never forget that Pelé played with historic teammates who made him into the living legend he is. They were that good that they didn't even need Pelé for the 1962 World Cup.

You know thanks for those articles, but you know Tevez attitude is disgusting. Sorry Tevez, I used to be your huge fan, but you are not a god. Read this again.

And something much worse: he appeared with some extra pounds, out of shape and with demands, like sleeping in a room alone or dressing apart in the locker room. Something else? Yes, he had to play. Incredibly, he was among the starters in the first two games as a left wing. In the third he was a sub and he cracked: “I am a 9, I can’t play on the sides”. Not only had he put himself in the national team, he was putting conditions.

The group now also suspects that he has stirred this media operation that, believe it or not, in the last hours added a familiar voice, Daniel Scioli’s: “I want him to be called. I know him very well from the humane and the football sides and he is a great guy. I’d like it that there was a guy like him in the definition or the World Cup. He is a motivator, is really tenacious and has the shirt well put on. That is why I’d wish he was in this great team.” claimed the Buenos Aires’ governor. Scioli had just charged to reanimate, like in 2011, the operation clamour. Close insiders within Grondona's ranks are dutifully disseminating the notion that the Godfather (Grondona) no longer has an issue with a potential Tevez rebirth in the national squad. And several media branches repeat with persistence to install the subject. Sabella is being cornered in an awkward scenario, but as a captain of the group, should be more afraid of the concessions that bounce in the intimacy than of the popular claims and the pressure. Political or commercial. Wherever they may come from.

The situation ejected Batista, who no one no longer backed up. Tevez and the national team distanced to never cross paths again. The Sabella cycle was born and the refoundation arrived with results without Carlitos. Nobody missed him, or needed him, or asked for him. The Fantastic Four took charge. Precisely the forwards. Them, the distinctive seal that fires up the hopes in Brazil 2014. And Messi grew, whom during Tevez’s absence graduated as a leader and a captain, taking that maturity jump that people asked for so much. A stern, generous and determinant leader. Everyone lined up behind him.

So: are Messi and Tevez in bad terms? There was never a punctual discussion, but they are not friends. Today, even without Carlitos’ charisma, Leo is the king of the world. And his teammates revere him, between admiration and gratitude. He is their captain, and he won it inside and outside of the field. He never disappeared nor chose when to be there nor asked the protection of any godfather. Carlos has his ego, large, and convinced himself that he is the player of the people. Any survey backs him up. Respects and even appreciates Messi, but, today a star in Juventus, feels like he can see him as an equal. That he doesn’t have to be a step below.

Tevez returned to a group that had never been consulted and who didn’t look at him with sympathy anymore. There was no specific theme against him, but that high profile capable of unleashing a tsunami in a glass of water did bother. And something much worse: he appeared with some extra pounds, out of shape and with demands, like sleeping in a room alone or dressing apart in the locker room. Something else? Yes, he had to play. Incredibly, he was among the starters in the first two games as a left wing. In the third he was a sub and he cracked: “I am a 9, I can’t play on the sides”. Not only had he put himself in the national team, he was putting conditions. The group was furious. The story ended with the quick elimination in the quarterfinals against Uruguay, in Santa Fe, by penalties, with quite a symbolism: Tevez came in in the second half and kicked the last one, the one that sealed another failure for the white and blue when Muslera saved it.

Tevez, in. Batista explained then that they never had any differences and praised Tevez. But in October of last year he confessed: “There was external pressure to have him there. I tried to handle it until the end, but it was hard. The pressure came from above, pressure from the AFA and political pressure. And yes, in that moment I felt like quitting." But he didn’t; if he explained the truth, it would be a scandal. He gave in. And the group exploded before his eyes. He lost the respect and the leadership of that squad that was preparing to break the curse of 18 years without a title. -Sergio Batista-

Just rewatch Argentina-Peru in WCQ 2014. The tactic is also 4-3-3 but with different players upfront and in midfield due to injuries to Messi and Higuain and some others. Anyway the line up was:
---------------------Romero
---Zabaleta--------Fede---Garay--------Rojo
---------------------Biglia
---------------Banega-------Di Maria
---------------------Aguero
----------------Palacio-----Lavezzi

Also fantastic four tactic but with different players. Well I am impressed by what I saw. Let me comment on some players:
1. Banega: He was way more lively than Gago vs. Romania. He was the playing the Modric role of Madrid. A lot of great killer balls and slick passing. I think he'd better back up Gago and Biglia backing up Masche.

2. Biglia: The reason why I post this is this player. I think when facing weaker teams, Biglia is a lot better than Masche due to Masche one dimensional game lately (just great defensively). Biglia has more offensive tools in him. I know it is not possible to bench Masche whenever he is available, but Masche is good only when facing strong teams because we'll need his defense.

3. Lamela: He played for the last 10 minutes. He was clearly playing as a forward along with Aguero. So folks, don't think Lamela as our attacking midfielder. He's a forward for Sabella. So he was clearly the 6th forward. The issue of Di Santo was only a back up plan in case Lamela can't make it. So don't freak out please.

4. The fantastic four tactic clearly had no problem against any teams but parking the bus teams. So now our issue here is how to break the park the bus teams especially if we fail to score an early goal.

Overall, the 4-3-3 (fantastic four) Sabella's main tactic is awesome. Period.

This argentina team only win this cup if they play as a unit.whether its defending,attacking or midfield control. this team have to deal with huge pressings from opposition teams in the world cup.bayern,atletico,realmadrid play the way we are going to see in the upcoming world cup.the game against romania is the begining the way opposition teams is going to press our team. they havent play like park the bus.as far next coach is concern i would like to see Bianchi/Gareca/Ramon Diaz/Sampaoli(chile)or our own Marcelo Bielsa.
diego pablo simeoni is in the making for our future coach.i really dont want to see him get argentina job after the cup. let simeoni get more cups in club label around europe. i am pissed of this sabella. He have done great work from last 3 years but to become honest with u all i see all these players get thier place granted. this is the biggest reason to worry and the worst thing happened with our beloved albiceleste.

Just eavesdropped into a Germany Football Fans FB group. They are going mad with a number of things. Firstly, no one, barring a few, wants Ozil in the squad. People are rooting for Gotze instead. Secondly, they don't have a quality striker now. Just Klose and Gomez. They themselves don't want Klose to play a lot of games in Brazil. Thirdly, they aren't happy with CB's either. 'Hummels is slow', 'Boateng is shit' and 'Mertesacker is just the only one good' are the comments I could see. :)

Despite my opposition to Tevez's comeback, between Di Santo and El Apache, no doubt there... El Apache anytime.

It's clear Sabella is considering Di Santo because of his size and nothing else. He would like to have the option to play long balls if the opponent's midfield is too difficult to get through.

Removing 1 of the fabulous 4 fm the starting lineup of the team is definitely not a solution... If there is anything any team fears in Argentina it is their attack of messi aguero higuain nd di Maria... So removing 1 of them means weakening Argentinas main strength which is the attack which all teams fear... When the fabulous 4 r playing rest assured teams will fear to attack Argentina nd will be restrained in the back becoz of Argentinas danger in the counter attack when all 4 r playing !!! The fabulous 4 r our main defensive strength. I'm actually happy with the team that played against Romania, definitely the players were playing cautiously nd if it was a World Cup match the display would have been completely different!! To increase our attacking strength in matches were teams park the bus maybe it would be better to start with banega/ Alvarez/ maxi instead of gago; we players with good creativity nd dribbling skills nd shooting in these kind of matches

Agree that Simeone should be the next coach.

I am not sure if Tevez is the answer with Messi lacking form and fitness. The issue is not upfront but in midfield. Given the fact that there are no test matches left and Sabella will probably not call many new names, we have to solve it differently.
How about this line-up to improve and strengthen midfield:
Caballero (I know, Sabella will pick Romero)
Peruzzi - Fernandez - Otamendi - Garay
Zabaleta - Mascherano - Gaitan
Messi
Aguero - Higuain

Garay played LB for Santander and did brilliantly.
Zabaleta to midfield. He makes good forward runs at City and can do in the national team with Peruzzi covering defense. His strength will improve midfield.
Bring Gaitan in for Di Maria, just because of form.
Put Messi in the center of the action in a free role.

If we are sacrificing a striker that shud b for an attacking miffielder, a di maria type, and switch the frmtn to 4-2-3-1.... If we gone for a 3rd DM it will b too defensive.... Mash-gago-banega or masch-gago biglia or masch-gago-camb etc.... wud b too dfnsv.... Will struggle to score goals.... 2 s prfct...

Nevermore Tevez. This guy was our black sheep in World Cup 2010 and Copa America 2011. Lots of losing the ball and under soil holding ball witlessly. Just like stupid Banega.
And please don't collate Higuain with Aguero. Higuain or Aguero, Aguero or Higuain, what a difference? Aguero is one of the best forward in the world, Higuain is average.
What else? I don't want Lamela in NT because he running with the ball alongside half-way line more often than towards the goal. Since Roma offload his they playing way better. He is talented but he can't targeted, give direction his possibilities. So he's useless.

You know when I read this news, I was relieved because it wasn't the our next big thing coach, Simeone who said it but Ayala.

I always thought Ayala had good attributes to be a good coach, but his comment already shows that he won't be a good coach. If he knows Argentina football, he must know how awful Tevez and Messi were when playing together. They might look amazing against Canada or St. Lucia or Faroe Islands or San Marino together, but definitely not in big games against big teams.

Stay away from the national teams Tevez!

I agree with Mafioso, Cambiasso form is excellent. Hope he'll make at least the final 30.

The only new player who should be called up is Cambiasso.He is our best CM/DM.He is in great form,even in better form than 2010 I think.

Many people said he is an insurance for Gago.I say he can be a great alternate for Mashe.We have alternates for Gago,but not for Masche.

Against a team,which loves to attack with pace like Germany,Masche needs to be there to stop them.But against a team like Portugal...No doubt they will park the bus...for this case,Chuchu will be perfect...As he has the attacking ability-distribution,positioning and scoring.As for offensive passes what Masche did against Romania with 1 out of 3 attempts,Chuchu can do it with ease every time.

I didn't watch the game but according to the FOX game report, Messi was the only Barcelona player who played well yesterday!

He vomited before in games but the media is just making a meal out of it.

I don't know what is going on, but there is something going on between him and Barcelona.

Messi link with Man City has been denied and stated as rumour only; pshyco war previous Barca vs City clashes in Wednesday Champion leaque.

Messi did not at his best form now and certainly his freshness is not in good shape, the vomit on Romania games and poor display against Valladolid did worry me.

Anybody hear about ManCity trying to get la Pulga and him seriously considering it?

Some have suggested that he's not putting in the time and effort whenever he plays for Barcelona and how he didn't like how he was treated after the so-called income tax evasion case came to light.

Pic the following: Messi, Kun and El Apache upfront, with El Pipita, El Pocho and possibly Palacio on the bench.
Tevez should have been included years ago but now with 3months to go, I don't know?

Good view ....... Argentina cant rely only On messi , tevez with his form should be in squad. Tevez will be our main sub player. It will be a merit for argentina and nightmare for opponents. Messi,kun,higuain,tevez,lavezzi and palacio make everyone to raise their eye brows.

@kid why do you want tevez to be included our offense is fine aguero is playing in his position who is better player then him now we need to strengthen in other areas like midfield or defense goalkeeper etc but not offense our team is already loaded tevez is not what we need, we need tall striker to come for higuien not tevez who will not except to be benched and will cause problems sabella has done some silly things but I give him credit on this one tevez is the last thing we need he deliberately missed his kick against Uruguay we could have won that cup I didn't forget that what do you think messi and the players they didn't forgive him for that

I agree with @pablo.d. Not a wise words from Ayala, The WC is on the way and Sabella have proved that Arg qualifies on the top, not losing a single games for more than a year.
Tevez will not be called even Julio Grondona or Bilardo asked Sabella. It's Sabella team and and he wants to have a harmony and low profile team rather than a bundle of high profile players.

Argentina defense is fine, we haven't conceded goals in like three straight games, their is nothing wrong with our defense..Holland defense is worse than us and Argentina defense is better than Germany..Cambiasso and Tevez should be in the team..

This is why he isn't on the team:

Do we really need more firepower? We've already got what many would say is the best offense in the world. Our midfield is what we should be focusing on. And then perhaps our defense.

Really sabella, out of all the 100 of thousands of Argentina professional players, Di Santos is the best you can think of...

I agree with Ayala, I was against Tevez being included in the team months ago but I have recently change my mind..We have grown men in the squad not kids, I'm tired of this whole ''Tevez is going to disrupt the squad,'' sorry but Messi is not to be favor here..If we are going to achieve big things at the upcoming world cup we need everyone, Scolari is looking at everyone..Scolari gave Ronaldinho and kaka a look at, and most recently Robinho and Maicon, why cant Sabella do the same..Tevez and Cambiasso should be at the world cup, Period..THis world cup is on Argentina home continent, we are going to need every bit of experience to win it...Cant judge Tevez by the past , this is the present and I am getting upset with these snub by Sabella especially two of Argentina big players..If Sabella don't want to give Tevez, Cambiasso and Willy a spot on the team, then he should step down.. I'm tired of the personal feelings stuff going on with the NT...This is about Argentina not Sabella...Sabella is acting like a stubborn old man, why cant he just relax and let everything fall into place..

Tevez will mess up the whole unity within the squad sabella knows what he is doing. If he calls up di Santo then I will change my mind.

im guess ayala does not get on with sabella with his "stirring" tevez statement and already naming a new manager before the old one is any where near gone.

anyway tavez has been given many many chances with 64 caps but a small return of 13 goals.

when people like this speaks the entire world should listen. I think Sabella needs a hearing aid devise because I cant understand how a striker at that level would be left out of their National team, down right crazy.
Anyhow let the coach do as he pleases because at the end of the world cup he will be looking for a job to coach a club team in Argentina.

Do you want Carlos TEVEZ back?
