  1. 1. Romero should benched next match, any goalkeeper with regular match fitness would have stopped the shot.
    2. Aguero, what I should say! not only missed the penalty but also missed a great oppurtunity.
    3. I have been starting to think,even Tata may be little bit better than this Dinosore!

  2. The entire team sucks…first, get rid of masche. He is a one way player who brings nothing offensively. With him out there you cannot attack up the middle..you need someone like an Aimar in the middle. The wingers need to be creative. DiMaria is not creative. And Banega is too slow. What we do is we have Banega play on the side, and masche gives you nothing but defense in the middle. Awful spacing all around. Any of those forwards can score if you have creative midfielders. We basically play with 5 forwards, 5 defenders and 0 midfielders.

  3. Remove#Card eater ROJO
    A total joke of LB
    .
    Masches time is over .
    Demichelis is a living fossil .

    Sack the coach first

  4. Remove Bauza and his 0-mentality.
    Remove bench warmers of clubs.

    Mascherano Romero

  5. No way Bauza will be able to win over Colombia and especially Brazil, not in his wet dreams of Diva Maria. nil points for November.
    Bauza needs to get fired and sent to the zoo.

  6. I cant even see Higuains face …he is so disgusting..so is Kun..Diva maria..Romero…mascherano…Rojo, Brazil is wining away match against same Venezuela and without Neymer..Marcello and Cassimero.Gabriel Jesus 8′, Willian 53′..these guys are not even star!! Kill these motherfakats. Kun will go to england and will score for that Petro money club M. city.. Higuain will score a hat trick ..and Di mari will give blowjob to CR7

  7. Oo Bauza u only can sent striker in place of everything & goalkeeper maybe.

    Aguero Higuain Pratto Dybala Di maria
    All players are attackers….
    You don’t know football needs midfield to make offence & defense .Mascherano is not the midfield player.
    Banega and Gaitan off
    Why snake Aguero plays all the game?

    Don’t you have midfield players in bench.

    How many subs can be made in a game? Don’t u know it

    Sentiment of Every Argentines and fans from abroad are chocked and destroyed by u Bauza.

    How a coach doesn’t have the idea of midfield?
    @#/&*@$^**

    Downward movement of performance curve.
    Venezuela Peru Paraguay
    Getting worser
    Next Brazil Colombia

    Is it acceptable that Argentina is in verge of not qualifying.
    Many Love birds were playing in that NT lineup. They makes this team their paternal property.

  8. It is time to rebuild the whole team! The problem is not our forwards. The problem is that we have no midfield and no wingbacks. Rojo can’t cross or defend useless left back. Banega is the only ball passing Midfielder we have. I’m sure we have other players we can add. DemiCareless why is he here? Di maria should be benched. Agureo should only play as a lone striker. These players have had chances over and over again. We can’t depend on messi for every game. Bauza it is time to shake things up and build a winning team. With all the talented Argentine players u can pick choose and refuse.

  9. it is useless team. If you can not score a goal playing home. As i said it feels like boys vs men. pathetic. Argentina playing like this unbelievable, I am intering depression,

  10. congratulations on a new low bauza.

    i gave you a chance and said id wait until you have had a few games in charge-and all i can say is what a complete shambles from you and the teams you selected so far.

    i and a select few others on here said we urgently needed changes as soon as you took over the job, their are no longer any excuses for changes and the next selection we need a to make massive changes, most of the old guard out…now…not later.

  11. Bauza just needs to stop calling di maria aguero rojo and higuain. If only things werent so damn political. I feel sorry for the players that arent being given a shot because these guys are on the team. Everything is toooo political. Messi and Mascherano shouldnt be given equity to choose who is on the squad. Very disappointed

  12. 1 faking goal..we concede beginning of the match..and all those so called stars cudn’t eeven score a one single goal…not even from Penalty!!!! Sack that Bauza now!!! make a team for WC 2014 cos we are not gonna be there in Russia!!

  13. I looked into the whole schedule, all the matches left. I do not see us qualifying if we lose this game. We are not going to win in Brazil, Uruguay, Bolivia, Ecuador.

    Best we can win 2 games and draw 1.

  14. Agureo is not a playmaker!! It’s time for macherano to play at CB and how much times will DemiCareless have to retire.
    What the starting lineup should of been with the players there.

    Romero

    Mercado mushacio macherano Mas

    Di maria pizzaro banega correa

    Dybala Higuain

  15. Wholesale changes needed. Which is not going to happen. Unless there is got up to have Messi in Russia or Messi comes back wins remaining 6 games single handedly, we are not not going to Russia.

  16. Hello everybody, to be honest, I did not like Mascherano at all .. many mistakes .. I think Banega is ok .. Rojo including other defenders all are bad .. Gaitan is ok … de maria is too selfish ….no services to Aguero and Higuain

  17. Guys,
    By the end of this year, there will be only 6 games left and we will be in 7th or 8th position. I don’t see this team winning against Brazil and Colombia. If Messi misses some of those 6 games, we don’t have to worry about Russia world cup at all.

  18. This is not Argentinian futbol.. everything is just kick the ball up, no creativity, di maria ball hog, and our defense out of sync, no midfield, forwards static, how are we that Messi dependent, I hope bauza makes changes quick

  19. It is painful to watch this team now. Does not look like we have a plan, players look uninspired, ideas are pale.

    We need something from somewhere.

  20. I think Bauza has to go. I am watching England. Pass to the wide and then try to cross. I have never seen Argentina score like that. Next 2 games we will surely lose against Brazil and Colombia.

    • Musacchio was always slow. He is pathetic. Its only here we speak as if these players are world class. Remember half of the team does not even play for their clubs.

    • Thats the problem with team formation and Bauza. When Mascherano or Banega gets the ball, only option is to go wide as Aguero and Higuain are too far. Too easy to defend.

  21. wow, this is so easy. And Romero pretty much does not save anything. You can understand now. and horrible team by Bauza. I do not understand Gaitan.
