Sheva was already on the decline before he left Milan.
Though stats may not show it, his sharpness was dropping, and his performances were generally less impressive.
Also, Milan's medical lab is renowned for being one of the best, and most accurate in the world.
Perhaps they saw what Chelsea...
That's because of their movement in the roles though.
If you were to show how they would be generically, it's a simple 4-3-3, like this;
Zarate was terrible for the time he was on the pitch.
Looked completely unfit (or injured), and couldn't control the bloody ball!
Sneijder played a weird role, but one that he plays well in.
By the end of the match, our formation was something like this...
Napoli are in the hardest group, which is a shame, because I was looking forward to seeing them do quite well.
Milan also have a pretty tough group.
And imo Inter's group is a fair bit harder than what people are making it out to be!
I wouldn't be making huge predictions yet...
I wouldn't mind having a crack...
But I can't guarantee I'll be available for all my picks.
Time difference might be a problem as well.
If someone else wants it, and is more likely to be around for it all, they can have it.
For those of us that aren't actually in the comp., could you guys post a list of who picks which players in the OP, or as the picks are made?
Would have liked to been part of this, but I don't post here very much...
And to think Kluiv was born on the same day as RvN, who is still playing at the moment, and conversely, Kluivert has been retired for a few years and is coaching now.
He's still the record goalscorer for the Dutch national team though...
Not necessarily Wollongong, but a South Coast club.
The area has been tried and tested in the NSL, and it is a rich footballing area, where, unlike North Queensland, we already know they will have a good following.
Alvarez is quality, and has shown so much already in the preseason matches...
Kaka's problems at Madrid weren't entirely his fault, as he missed a lot through injury, and during that period the playing style and personnel changed quite a lot.
Anyway, back to the original question, I highly...
