He changes our defense dramatically. He also modifies our midfield, giving rest to a few players and he comes up with an unexpected striking partnership.
So...the lineup will look like this...
ABBONDANZIERI; IBARRA, BURDISSO, Cata DIAZ and ZANETTI; GAGO, Lucho GONZALEZ, CAMBIASSO, AIMAR; TEVEZ and PALACIO.
Well...COCO, as much as I love you, I don't agree with this lineup at all.
We are changing our defense entirely, because even if ZANETTI stays, he is being moved to the other side of the field (where he is not as comfortable as on the right).
We agreed, COCO, with our midfielders choices and with Carlitos replacing MESSI.
But why on Earch you pick PALACIO over MILITO?
Where is that sentence of yours, from earlier Today, saying that Diego MILITO is the natural replacement for CRESPO?
Or are you saving MILITO because he will be your main striker in the remainder of the Copa?
I don't think that is a very wise thing to do as he clearly needs more minutes to grow in confidence, and he didn't play that much in order for him to need some rest.
PALACIO is not a big man or a proper reference to use inside the opposing box. So I don't really understand this decision.
A good team, though, but I have a bad taste in my mouth after reading this.
Even though I see AIMAR and TEVEZ from the start, I can't be completely happy as I wanted to see Diego MILITO having his first chance from kick-off in a competitive game.
Will it come in the quarter-finals? Will it be too little, too late?
