I think Messi and the captain armband are meant to be...
yep. i don't know if it was mourinho who asked for him or valdano (from what i heard mourihno is strongly interested in di maria), but the offer was official. zamparini himself reported it. http://www.corrieredellosport.it/calcio/mondiali_2010/2010/06/22-117290/Zamparini%3A+Cavani+e+Kjaer+lasceranno+PalermoIs this true lo zio ? Would you think that Mourinho would want him ?
yeah i know it's not reciprocal. argentinian fans have all the right to complain about italy "stealing" sivori and angelillo back in the days (afterall the same could be said about camoranesi today).albiceleste said:Obviously a lot of Argentines have Italian blood in them so to speak ie Cuchu hails from Genoa and Messi I think nearby but I don't think this is reciprocated in terms of affection.
There is still a degree of affliction over the loss of certain players ie Sivori, Angelillo and many have not forgotten the anthem being booed in 1990.
yeah i agree with u. one more year in palermo can only do good to him. plus rossi (palermo's coach) is a real teacher. he can really help him improve, while mourinho just couldn't do it.As I reiterate better for him to stay at Palermo and learn his craft further. Playing in serie A has certainly improved his tactical discipline. Even with Mourinho at Real you never know what sort of circus it could descend into.
Too many young players have gone there and been affected adversely.
You're absolutely right lo zio. He did the right thing then.yeah i agree with u. one more year in palermo can only do good to him. plus rossi (palermo's coach) is a real teacher. he can really help him improve, while mourinho just couldn't do it.
however javier is a smart kid. he knows what's best for him. one year ago, he could choose between palermo and man utd. he chose palermo coz he knew here he would have got a better chance to improve himself as a player.
u don't see often a 19 years old kid turning down an offer from a top club like man utd (and giving up to a much bigger paycheck), just to get more playtime and chances to improve himself. it sure takes a lot of confidence and brains to take such a decision
I see. I guess we know what the occupation of his ancestors were as well then.
p.s. Anyone else think he looks a little like Roque Santa Cruz. Like a younger version. I think the hairstyle has a lot to do with it though.
actually i believe that's his very best asset. every generation there are a handful of hugely talented youngsters. but a kid with such composure, such mental strenght and coolness is a gem.Javier likes to learn and seemingly has no fear either. Diego said he has seen many young kids crumble but that Javier is like a seasoned veteran of several world Cups. So the kid is also mentally tough.
i never noticed that. he actually does!PLF said:Anyone else think he looks a little like Roque Santa Cruz
Ah right, so you basically fell in love with the side as a kid?AbouTreika18. No I'm English born and bred. Started following Argentina in 1986 as a seven year old and ever since.
That kind of epitomises the bum-boy relationship the Yanks and L'Anglais have.wow...very common here I see lot of kids here in the US that support England .My boys support England n US even though their mum is Spanish ,but when they go there they wear the espana colors grand pa is a nutter like that.

Well you're similar to me in that you're not much of a patriot.
Surprised Federico Vilar has yet to be capped, he's impressed me whenever I've seen him although at 33 it's unlikely he'll ever be capped, despite being around his peak for a 'keeper.
Yeah, I get ya. I'm guessing there's been many a time where you've been labelled a "glory hunter" by others?Oh I am in that sense I support our armed forces, know this nation's history and traditions inside out and it's acheivements in the arts, sciences and humanities of which I am mightily proud and which I might add many of the fans belting out 'Rule Britannia' would not have a scooby about.
And I support the rugby and cricket sides but no way could I get behind this lot.
As R.W.Emerson wrote 'the appreciation of beauty is art'. Argentina have for the majority of their history played that way save for a few blips 1974/1990 for example.
Hardly mate. Some people cannot fathom me following Argentina so I have to patiently explain. Meanwhle there are plenty of people who don't mnd sporting Brazilian shirts which I find odd in my turn.Yeah, I get ya. I'm guessing there's been many a time where you've been labelled a "glory hunter" by others?
What is the opposite of "glory hunter"? cause I support England Rugby team and they never won.Yeah, I get ya. I'm guessing there's been many a time where you've been labelled a "glory hunter" by others?
