  1. It’s a joke that Brazil… puts out their 23 man roster for the Copa on May 17th and Argentina have a 36 man list…
    why?
    Because this doesn’t allow the Argentinian players to have peace of mind knowing that they are ON THE TEAM! Which doesn’t allow them to relax and get mentally ready to play in a month.
    It sounds little but makes a BIG difference with the players anxiety and a difference will be noticed on the pitch.
    It’s a coaches job to create confidence for their players not worry!!! The little things add up

  2. In form Lamela could be very handy to the team. I have stated numerous times here, he is a complete midfield player. He can attack , score, create and defend. Next season he needs to leave Spurs for any Spanish or Italian club.
