Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread
DiMatteo made one fuckup so far, one game vs QPR where he got the tactics wrong. Otherwise he is one of the most awesome managerial minds ive seen. He ALWAYS gets it right perfectly asides from QPR. I think we should have faith in him.
Drogba was monumental, but it was also a team effort. Ramires was the one who scored the mother of all goals vs Barca in Camp Nou. Lampard, Bran, and terry were all on the score sheet vs Napoli. The team isnt as pathetic as it appeared to be when unified by Dimatteo
That being said, I think Juve and their midfield are really got to fuck us up. Only hope, go classical. 4-2-3-1. Hazard, Mata and Ramires on the break are some of the most dangerous players on earth, and Dimatteo is very familiar with Italians. Personally Id go with
Bran- Terry- Luiz- cole
mata- hazard- bertrand
Lampard needs to be out, im sorry but that guy is the definition of our weak link. Pirlo would just make him look like a school child. Wish we still had MRLSH in CM but you cant always be that lucky. So bertrand is gonna have to work his ass off to shut Pirlo down. We've got good subs too, Moses is slotting in well, Sturridge is hungry, Marin should be back and Oscar oozes potential.
It'd be stupid to even try and match them in midfield, I say just get the ball to hazard, mata and ramires and let them try and slice their way through the team. Unfortunately, Lampard will be starting. And Torres will always be a liability
Luckily, Torres and Mata have some fond european memories scoring on Buffon for fun
Though honestly, I cant see us winning anything this year. Team is too beat up or young. Oscar, Bertand, Lukaku, Moses, Sturridge, McEacrahn, hazard are all gonna be awesome in the future, but right now we're stuck between gears. Its too early
