so, it's true, Adriano got the axe ... whether it was purely down to his performanceXifio;2585883 said:apparently Adriano is going to get the axe too ... his sheer lack of pace makes him fairly ineffective in the 4-3-3, although he tries to make up for it with his strength ...
I just said it yesterday, and now look who's back in contention ... I've liked Crespo since the late 90s, and he has always been a striker who relied more on positioning and clinical finishing (with either foot or with his head) than anything with quick feet or pace ... that's why I don't believe his quality would have diminished too much with age, and I really hope to see him getting a chance and firing in the goals this team needs ... as I said in my post, a 4-4-1-1 with Zlatan behind Crespo, or even a standard 4-4-2, really would work well ...Xifio;2585883 said:I can't understand the ostracizing of Hernán Crespo ... he's gotten goals wherever he's gone ... I'd play him up top in a 4-4-1-1, and Zlatan supporting behind him ... Mancini would be out wide on the left of midfield, with Zanetti on the right -- that'll allow Big Doug to bomb forward from right back, while Pupi plays a more defensive role ...
so JM's kept him in the squad, like I wanted ... I expect to see him used as an impact player off the bench, with either Balotelli or Obinna getting the start ... but maybe the fact that €30M was shelled out for this maverick means that Quaresma's going to get one more chance before being benched ...Xifio;2585883 said:it would be harsh to drop him from the squad entirely for the Fiorentina game ... but I wouldn't disapprove of using Quaresma in a supersub role for the time being ... I think his best performance so far came when he produced a fairly impressive second-half cameo in the Champions League last week ... using Quaresma in short bursts may be quite effective right now, until he's got a few assists and/or goals under his belt ...
