    • 😁 😁 😁 😁 hell yeah Crespo! One of my favorites of all time. Also I read what u posted about what batistuta said about Lauturo. Both these guys were clinical strikers of their times, experts at attack….and both have good things to say about Toro.
      I personally think that Lauturo is going to get better from here on. When u lose a champions league and have competition for your striker position it add hunger. And I think he’s the type that will train harder.

  1. Transfer rumors: Xavi is intrested in bringing Dybala to Barcelona and PSG has offered Icardi to Roma!

    Dybala will be perfect for Barcelona and a great quality addition to their mediocre attack! Xavi’s tight defense and Madrid, Atletico and Sevilla’s poor start to last season helped Barca win the league but they can’t depend on average players like Rafinha and Dembele again. If Dybala can stay fit for 70% of the season, Barca will be heads and shoulders better in attack. Mbappe is rumored to go to Madrid and Barca need a cheap but reliable and proven attacking player to defend their title and end their poor champions league run. Dybala’s release clause is 12 million for non Italian teams. He deserves a elite team and could easily be their star player if he can stay fit.

    • Dybala is impossible to stay fit not even 50% of a season and this is the reason he will not have the career according his talent. There is not exist club in highest level that will intend to risk their season for Dybala. Only mid level teams will make good offers to him unfortunately.

    • The thing about Dybala at Barcelona, in addition to his poor injury record, is that he won’t be able to play as an inverted winger in a classic Barcelona 4-3-3. He does not do well there. So Xavi would have to tweak the formation to be able to accommodate him. So it has to be some sort of formation that either involves two strikers, e.g. 4-4-2, 3-5-2 or that allows Dybala to play through the middle: 4-2-3-1, 3-4-1-2/3-4-2-1. Would Xavi do that? Not sure.

      He is loved and respected at Roma, I think he is fine there

    • Just because he didn’t have the best WC doesn’t mean he hasn’t been great for us. Some Trolls just like to talk shit. His pressing and off the ball work is outstanding

      • Also people quickly forgot that he had to play with injected ancle, if i remember right…anyhow he was not fully fit, though some sitters should had been scored, but who care’s in the end as ARG won the WC and we all know TORO’s quality and what he is capable as anyone who watches football too, right…

        Stay well chejose
