    Nobody seems willing to add in the environment of the Argentine team, not even who should be the main stakeholders in the team that captains Lionel Messi reaches as far as possible in the next World Cup .

    In addition to the sports problems that were evident in the match against Spain, the stones in the road are gradually accumulating. To the overly open communication policy of technician Jorge Sampaoli , who tends to talk to too many people about the decisions he intends to take, the leaks that some leaders began to make through friendly journalists from the high spheres of the AFA are now added .

    Halfway between the rumor and the information, suddenly began to reach the ears of the different media statements such as neither Mascherano , Dybala nor Funes Mori will be on the final list of Russia 2018 ; that there were managers who would have preferred Mauricio Pochettino as coach before Sampaoli ; or that Lautaro Martínez is not in a position to be summoned for having an injury that will require surgery before the June appointment.

    It was precisely this last “news” that raised more dust in the last hours. Racing ruled out that his young striker, who is about to close his transfer to Inter Milan, suffer any type of pubalgia or similar condition. In fact, at the return of the European tour he participated without major problems in the games played against Belgrano de Córdoba and Universidad de Chile .

    The doubt at this point is to know what these secrets pursue in a half voice that arise from the headquarters of national football. Do you want to be good with journalism before the World Cup ? The idea is to open the umbrella in case the prediction of President Claudio Chiqui Tapia that Argentina is going to be world champion does not come true ? Or will it be a simple desire for prominence?

    Something confusing in itself, the message of Sampaoli what less needs is to see itself peppered with opinions of the main managers in relation to who should be and who is not in the definitive list. In a stage in which the selection needs to calm the waters so that the technician can decide with serenity the list of 23 chosen, any debate promoted from within is harmful and causes unnecessary noise.

    Questioned in the whole country and with low self-esteem after the 1-6 against Spain , the squad of the selection would be very good to receive an injection of confidence from the leadership before rumors that increase the concern.

    It does not seem that the current one is the best moment to hold “informal” talks with journalists to release statements of which no one knows exactly their degree of certainty. Speaking today does not add up, does not collaborate with the success that is so much talked about. Keeping your mouth closed when you need it is also an apprenticeship that anyone who pretends to be a leader should do.

  4. • for me the 3 front men should be messi,dimaria/perotti and aguero/icardi.

    • the three midfield players should be dybala as attacking midfield player with biglia and pizarro as two defence midfield players.

    • for the defence should be acuna as left back,otamendi and garay as cb and right back must be ansaldi which are very unlikely I think.

    • for the goalkeeper if he recovers soon,should be romero.

    • I think sampaoli is trying to set Argentina up to play like Barcelona, I might be wrong and I hope I’m wrong because it will not work because Barcelona players have been playing that way for many years.

    • Argentina should have their own way of playing.

    • No offense, but your team is so offensive it would get raped by any strong counter attacking team. You have a 3 man mid wirh dybala who is a forward in there who does very little work defensively. You have 3 forwards. You have two offensive fullbacks, Acuña being a midfielder playing out of position.

      • Like it or not,acuna will be Argentina first choice left back no doubt about that,for ansaldi who is one of Argentina best fullbacks who for some reason doesn’t get the call should and is not as you make out to be buddy,but that’s what you say.

        • and this issue of messi and dybala that that can not play in the same team at the same time,i don’t agree with that. If you look at how dybala are playing for juventus through the middle,and messi on the right to stretch the opposition,i can’t see why the two of them can’t play together.

        • Acuña as our first choice left-back? I think Tagliafico will be preferred as it’s his natural position, plus he is among the few who has done relatively well in the last two friendlies. We’ll see.

          • • who was tagliafico is a good choice but like it or not acuna is far better then him. If you watched the last few world cup qualifying games,can you remember who was Argentina fullbacks? And acuna is the more experienced of them both,right and he is still young right?

    • one thing for sure Messi and Dybla can not play together on the pitch except when we use Dybla as centre forward in place of Augreo.Messi and Dybla gonna to cut each others role and Dybla lacks diffensive attributes.It will make us vulnerable to attack.Lanzini,Meza would be wise option.

      • If you watched the game of sevilla vs Bayern that you would have seen why pizarro? He is more reliable than banega,locelso,paredes and biglia and as for lanzini who is a attacking player,do you want to play lanzini as a defensive midfielde?

    • I think Tagliafico is going to be the starting LB not Acuna but then again with some of Sampa’s odd decisions who knows!

      Your midfield with all due respect is a no go. You have 2 players in Biglia and Pizarro who lack creativity and one player in Dybala who should be no where near the midfield since he’s a creative forward who should be up the field, near the opposing team’s goal post.

        • Relax, try and accept that other people have differing opinions from yours.
          As for football, yeah I watch plenty, enough infact to know not to take a forward like dybala and play him midfield despite the fact that he has NEVER given any indication that he could play there.

          “and yes their are many of your kind on mundo”

          You mean people who have different opinions to yours? I’m sure there are plenty.

    • Sorry to say, but I stopped reading your comment after I read you wanted Dybala in the midfield behind 3 attackers. It’s a joke of a lineup.

      We can only afford two attacking players, Messi + a number 9. Even our wingers should focus on defense first.

  5. There is a lot of in fighting happening right now.
    Players are sabotaging players.
    Sampaoli tried in the beginning to choose the best players possible.
    It seems there was a lot of in fighting and divisions.
    Sampaoli threw his hands up and gave in pleasing one of the groups. Like every other coach he decided to bank on Messi. Listening to Sampaoli and reading what he says is interesting. He rejects any fault saying “it’s not my team, it’s Messi’s”, “Messi wants this” “Messi asked for it”, “Messi chooses his partners” and “I am just here to help him”.
    Soon enough there came rumors that Icardi and Dybala will not be selected with pretty much Sampaoli stating that there a “football differences” “lack of relationship” which confirms that they are not wanted by other players.
    If you make decisions like that you have to win or else. Spain destroyed us and all hell broke lose. Sampaoli is in the defensive.News leaking that certain players will be axed, claiming they know Sampaoli’s list which made him mad. Sampaoli is mad. He was asked about his plan and stated that he never plans anything, he has no plan, everything comes to him at the right time, which if you analyze it means none are sure or safe, could be interpreted as a warning. Like stated Sampaoli knows he is in the defensive. Tapia put pressure on him already thinking about future coaches naming Gallardo, and stating that he first offered the job to Simeone and Pochetino than to Sampaoli. The key word is sabotaging your chances before the World cup. Why would your President come out and state that you were second choice and thinking about other coaches just before the World cup is a mystery to me. Sampaoli wants to select the finals 23 squad on 14th of may while selecting 12 other as reserves. A lot of uncertainty, infighting and sabotaging going on. Sampaoli must know one thing and that is like it seems only the World cup win can save him because he is fighting players, press, fans,Maradona and the Afa. I support him if he does his thing and not if he gives in on the corrupt people like he has been doing lately. Sampaoli must look out for himself or he will end up in MLS. Make or break.

      • Nobody seems willing to add in the environment of the Argentine team, not even those who should be the main interested in reaching far.

      • “Messi’s partner is going to choose Messi. One will determine the other because Messi always plays.”

        “Leo (MESSI) has everything for this to be his team, not mine. I’m obliged to help the best player in the best way. For that reason I feel it’s his team.”

        “Mauro (ICARDI) was the chosen one. There’s a difference between ICARDIi’s partnerships in his club and with the National Team.
        Mauro’s case is similar to that of DYBALA’s. He’s a player we had chosen for something in the National Team but with the National Team, he didn’t have the footballing relationship with his team mates. I’m not counting him out, it gives me pride that he’s Argentine.”

        Tapia “Regarding the coaches , he did not hide his admiration for Marcelo Gallardo, River’s coach, and the President of AFA was a well-known supporter of Boca. “I like Gallardo, yes. I see it with a future of selection. Argentina has many technicians with an important future for the national team. There are many in Europe to praise and consider. Simeone? We talked with him at the time. “

        • My friend what you are posting here is things that everybody read in the media, this is no secret, this was all said out in public, so what are the fuss?

          • but I guess we will all see what is and what is not in the near future. Just for the record what you have posted here is thinks we all ready know.

          • and just for the record, in any sport the captain always has a lot of authority, but may the best men be chosen for the positions available.

      • If you guys wanna sweep the problems under the rug, it’s okay. we don’t need in fighting, we don’t need to banish players, we don’t need to talk about future coaches, or what if coaches. All we need is to work together and leave personal problems aside and do our best. that’s all we need. But sadly people want to be selfish instead of doing their best for the team.

    • Messi do not have anything to do with player selection.He is very shy guy by nature even in one of his interview he said that he fears to say anything about player to Sampoli.He does not take part in player selection it is not his job.But right now we need some new faces like Garay,Ansaldi etc to increase our chances on world cup.Higuain might be the case but Messi said that because during qualifier there were no striker who had deadly finishing quality.Benedetto,Rigoni,Gomez all were waste.

  6. I just saw the report about Icardi not going to the WC because he is at odds with so-called ‘Messi clan’…..is there any definitive, actual and factual evidence to substantiate this claim ANYONE??

    I am so F***ING sick and tired of this BS story. Now, there is no way we could say for sure that Icardi will be better than Idiot Higuian but he is younger, faster, bigger and I would assume, ‘highly motivated’ to prove himself to ARG and the world.

    Did he get a chance to play? sure, but was it enough, NO.
    Do I know better than Sam? I don’t think so, he probably knows more about football than all of us combined x10 and what about Messi’s knowledge?
    then again, nobody wants a player to be on the team and not get a chance to play or be at the very least respected and accepted when team unity is 2nd to none at the WC.

    • As much as I like Icardi, he’s a Crespo or Bati type really suited when we have a very strong midfield like we had in the past with Aimar, Veron, Requelme, Ortega, Simeome, Almeyda, Luis Gonzalez, …

      The current midfield is not that bad but they can’t play two good games in a row!

    • • if higuan is chosen over icardi,than I don’t know what sampaoli is trying to do.

      • for me the three cf should be aguero,icadi and martinez,martinez will be a really good “x” factor for the world cup.

      • when I read sampaoli press conferences than we can clearly see that their are players who we can say they will definitely be at the world cup such as lanzini,dimaria,messi and others.I don’t think higuan is a definite for the world,because he should not be their at all.

      Just my thoughts.

    • Yes, @Johnnyboy10, I watched that. What makes me so sad is that the chances which had in World Cup Final. I don’t know whether It will come again or not for Argentina but I really hope this time Messi and Co will lift the Trophy in Russia.

    • I cried. I remember that miss against Germany and I honestly thought at the time, this guy is an idiot he should have sunk that.

      But I also thought that if he sunk it would have been a cheap way to win, not the highlight reel I was looking for for years to come. So I was somewhat indifferent even though I wanted Argentina to win. Looking back today I would say if Higuain sinks that that world cup game goes down as one of the best in the history of finals. I bet the final result would have been 3-2 or 3-3 with penalties. an early goal in any game opens up and makes it far more exciting.

      Against Chile I thought this guy is a total choke artist, and then he does it the next year again… completely unreliable in big games.

  7. Reports say Sampa wants to deliver the names of the 23-man squad 20 days earlier than the deadline day (May 14th). He has the chance to select 35 players for the WC preliminary squad, but he wants to submit the final list on May 14th instead of June 4th.

    Is that a wise decision? I don’t think so!

    • Not sure what “reports” are, but short of a video interview stating this by Sampaoli I think it’s completely ridiculous. No half intelligent person would pick a team prior to the end of the regular football season. He’d be boxing himself in to quickly and open for such ridicule and judgement.

      What happens if players get injured in their last few games? The coach would basically need to move countries because he would be completely responsible. Even worse, you may not even take 23 players.

      If this ends up to be true the players we are talking about are the least of our worries, the sanity and intelligence of the coach and all senior staff who would let this happen are a bigger question.

      But I think this is where all of the No icardi, No dybala no so and so originates. At this stage does he have 80% of his list, yes. Does it include dybala or icardi, no maybe not but it’s a tentative list. So this gets leaked to the media and they write “stories ‘ linking to gossip about it, but things can change from here. Especially since aguero/messi still battling injuries and I doubt all of his selected players will be 100% at the national training camp.

      I have very high hopes that funes mori comes back, that guy has some real heart and was totally awesome in copa, and the qualifying games. He was on the bench with everton last week so hopefully he plays this week
