  1. Thanks for the welcome back!
    Yes, correct, you know I have been checking the site even when I wasn’t participating. Where else am I going to get news on my team and hear a whole bunch of stuck up Argentina fans ranting and raving! 😂
    One of the things I want to comment on from the old posts is the new jerseys, and since this is about shirt number…. Here’s my review.
    Just as a preface, I own so many jerseys that I am ashamed to say the number. I think around 55 if you care to know.

    I purchased both the home and away. I love the home, the black touches just make the jersey look more “expensive” and clean. The neck fits well, the team crest feels that it’s a bit off location but that’s just me being picky.
    I bought the away jersey because I have to, but I was worried it would be awful. But It’s the best purple ever! The design is unique and the different hues of purple around the borders look great. Especially the flames, awesome design.
    I have one issue with this away jersey tho….The neck fits wide. Not a fan of how it fits. I thought it was my skinny neck but then I watched our last friendly some weeks back and noticed it fit the players similarly. Both fit true like the older adidas jerseys so if u skinny like me then you should stick to medium. I don’t have a picture of me with the new jerseys yet, I will take some soon. But I will change my profile to the last jersey before I post new Jersey so you guys can see the fit difference.
    Anyways, I will be back tonight, I have some things to say about our midfield and about asado.

  2. For world cup matches….
    De paul…paredes….palacios/ macalester….?
    I’m really confused here, scaoloni know better but i will take macalester / Palacios or even Enzo..
    But big no to papu. What Mrinal said i agree with him. I think papu could just Play Against weak team otherwise no.Even gonzales is better in gio position than papu

  3. Sadio Mané will miss the first match against Netherlands. Big loss for Senegal.

    This means Netherlands will be very likely to top Group A and meet us at quarter final…

    • Equador can also top the group don’t underestimate equador. Netherlands is a strong team and should top their group but funny things have happened in wc.

  4. Good luck Messi & Co. Here is my balanced XI:
    Foyth, Cuti, Lisandro/ota, Acuna
    D Paul Guido Palacios
    Maria. Lautaro

    Sub: Molina/Tagliafico, McAlister, Papu, Dybala, Alvarez

  5. Hard and glad to hear Renato Sanches is omitted from Portugal squad. He’s really a frightening player.

    Playing Papu Messi Lautro Alvarez same time obviously makes us weaker defensively. A lot and lot depends entirely on De Paul. His form is very crucial for us. Another crucial player is Tagliafico. He is more defensive than Acuna. Slowly the nerve is dominating.

      • Apart from Messi everyone need to contribute defensively. Lautaro and Alvarez are fine with pressing but not convincing defensively. Still not clear with Alvarez role. Is he a direct replacement for Lautaro ? Clearly Papu can’t give the same defensive balance like Nico Gonzalez. But Nico’s fitness is still not clear. Another very important player. Fine with any formation except 343. Defense of four gives us a calmness. Hope Scaloni don’t mess with substitutions like a curse all our previous coaches did.

        • Its world cup. Even if you are messi you have to defend you have to press. He has to defend and press in 4 matches that should not be a problem. All 10 players have to defend and press in knockouts

  6. Lionel Scaloni on Lo Celso replacement: “When Lo Celso wasn’t available and other players who were instead of him did very well. We have many variants, it depends on the game and opponent.” from albicelestestalk

    • Our midfield will be decent but everyone praising McAllister but i still don’t find him that good he lacks any creativity atall even forward passing and ball carrying forward is lacklustre but he can shoot well or score

      • Did I talk about macallister? Listen I support Argentina I don’t care who starts or who sit on the Bench as long we win, I don’t have hate or love towards any particular player, I’m hoping those who goes the field make Argentina fans in worldwide proud, no point to stress this player or that player or worry about what will happen in the future
        Just enjoy this Argentina side who are very competitive team and have realistic chance to win the gold think positive too much negative ain’t gonna change nothing.

  7. As per Sofascore, he is one of the Top 10 players of current premier league season.

    As per Whoscored, he’s one of the Top30 players of the current premier league season.

    He’s the best Brighton player of the season both by Whoscored and Sofascore.

    He’s the best Argentine player in the Premier league this season, both by Whoscored and Sofascore.

    He’s still in the Top10 best tacklers in this Premier league season, sitting at 8th, next to Casemiro.

    He’s also top in interceptions in the premier league this season..top20 (sitting 17th).

    He’s one of the best in penalties, free kicks, corner kicks, positioning, recoveries, holding the ball, shooting, etc etc..

    Here in this forum;

    “he’s below average and always will be”,
    “he’s horrible player for NT, just okay player for Brighton”,
    “he should be nowhere near to NT”,
    “another Meza” etc etc.

    Even a Brazilian player doesn’t deserve this much hate here…!

  8. Both Mac allister and papu are weak defensively. I think Palacios is the best option in lo celso’s position. You need player with good work rate in mid field
