quote C0N0RH_AFCI never said that, you must be thinking of someone else.
Inter played him in his wrong position IIRC.
quote thetwilightAiden McGeady: Sure, he's one of the best and most creative wingers in the world, but he's not that good.
quote sheva chenkoI never said that, you must be thinking of someone else."I've watched him since he played for Brescia" Yeah he was good there but how about his spell at Inter? yeah he was average at best. You blatantly haven't been watching him his whole career.
quote C0N0RH_AFCOk then CL final Istanbul. Pirlo bossed the game first half...agreed? rafa figured this out at half time and realised he had to stop him so he brought on Hamann and did a shuffle so Pirlo wouldn't have time to dictate play. What was the result? the game passed him by and they lost the 2nd half 3-0. Fact! On more than 1 occasion Pirlo goes invisible aginst teams with a decent midfield. No plan B once you've stop him.....you have stopped him. Fact!Oh dear. Good in the Euros and a decent season? player of the tournament and led Juve to the title more like. You're forgetting Pirlo has won the World Cup and Champions League(twice) I take it?
Not sure why you're using the final to prove anything, when they were playing with 10 for alot of the game, Cheillini went off after ten minutes and they hadn't had a rest after extra time with England.
May I remind you Italy played Spain in the group stage, did that game pass him by? well?
Bored of the Xavi wankfest, and this PIrlo vs Xavi, wonder ball vs 5 yard square pass, Incredible flowing locks vs greasy chip fat spikes.
quote sheva chenkoOh dear. Good in the Euros and a decent season? player of the tournament and led Juve to the title more like. You're forgetting Pirlo has won the World Cup and Champions League(twice) I take it?Pirlo better than Xavi. Not even in Pirlo's wildest dreams. Put him against a team that know how to stop the way Pirlo plays and he's hopeless. Xavi on the other hand can change his game. I think it was against Racing and a player was man marking Xavi so what did Xavi do? he dropped into his own half and the Racing player followed him leaving Iniesta and Messi(who dropped into midfield) in miles of space. Take the Spain - Italy game for example they were in Pirlo's face and then the game passed him by....how? because he's a 1 trick pony. Get off his dick because he was good in the Euros and decent last season.
Anyways overrated players...the usual suspects.
