Careful guys! The yellow list

To add to the suspension Martín DEMICHELIS is carrying, the following are the NINE players that arrive to the match against Venezuela with a yellow card on their shoulders.

Another yellow card for any of these footballers will mean that they'd miss next Wednesday's match in Bolivia.

Take a look:

Javier ZANETTI (booked against Chile)
Gabriel HEINZE, Carlos TEVEZ, Lionel MESSI and Javier MASCHERANO (all booked against Uruguay, when Juan Roman RIQUELME was also booked but he's not around anymore)
Daniel DIAZ, Sebastián BATTAGLIA and Fernando GAGO (all booked against Peru, where DEMICHELIS got his first yellow -he followed that with a yellow at Chile-)
Jonas GUTIERREZ (booked against Brazil)

An impressive nine players are all in danger and will need to be careful.

As long as they all play in the match against Brazil, I'm happy. I don't want these guys to miss the match against them.

Imagine if Mascherano and/or Messi get a yellow the match PRIOR to Brazil?! It wouldn't be good, at all.

The only ones who dive more than the Argentinians are the Spanish. Heres to Bolivia spoiling the party. I'll still never forgive him for '86

Anonymous...again...we welcome your comments. It's always great to have a rivals' point of view.

It'd be great if you could sign up and share your views with us regularly. I truly mean this.

All I ask is respect and for you to avoid the use of foul language.

For the record...I agree that Argentine players have a tendency to dive (just as much or almost as much as Brazilians).

They also know how to dribble and how to pass and how to shoot and frankly...I rather they dive a little bit every now and then than hoofing the ball every time it comes their way or have no imagination whatsoever when they have the ball at their feet.

It's just a matter of taste, really.
