Aimar returns to the national team

The biggest surprise of the latest call up list is of course Pablo Aimar.

Will Aimar be able to step in and lead Argentina’s attack?

Though not a traditional playmaker, Aimar is certainly capable of participating in the play buildup and has good passing skills.

And what about Aimar linking up with the players upfront?

Just on talent alone, I would think that he could do a better job than Veron.

We’ll have to wait and see what plans Maradona has in store.

But at least on paper, an attacking trio of Aimar, Messi and Higuain
is more exciting and potent than what Maradona has used so far upfront.

    Im acuatly pretty excited aout Aimar coming back, i’ve been keeping an eye on him since he’s been in Benfica, and looks like little by little he’s getting his old form back.
    Aimar has always been one of my favorite players, but like you said,we have to wait and see how he links up with the guys up front, hopefully they click !
    I still would’ve left out Heinze (as usual), Coloccini, Tevez, and Jonas, I would’ve have probably called up Zarate or Crespo. Zarate has been tearing it up in Lazio, although he’s going thru a period of not scoring goals lately, but he still is playing great, and Crespo? I would always prefer him over Palermo, Crespo is a promising player, and at any moment he’ll surprise you with a goal from a tough position.
    Lets all cross our fingers we win !!!

    veron will be suspended against peru, so it seems likely that it will be aimar or lucho in that position. ole speculates that romero, zabaleta, schiavi, otamendi, insua, mascherano, di maria, jonas, messi, lavezzi, and higuain or palermo will start. with so much time before the game, its just speculation, but i’d like to see
    ——————Romero
    Zabaleta—–Pareja——–Otamendi——-Insua
    —————–Mascherano
    ———-Aimar————–Di Maria
    ——————–Messi
    ———–Milito—————Higuain
    overall, you can’t be too upset with the call ups. insua and zabaleta are huge steps. the call of higuain is obviously a plus. the addition of aimar is great. hell even having lucho called up is better than datolo and gago.

    I think that against Peru, Argentina should have an offensive minded lineup. I would like to see:

    …………………Andujar………….

    …Zabaleta….Demichelis…..Pareja…..Insua……

    ………………..Mascherano……………..

    ……Lucho……………………Di Maria…….

    …………………….Aimar……………….

    ……….Messi…………..Higuain………..

    Im not sure abt higuain, but aimar is definitely a plus for me. It seems like aimar is messi’s idol and they may bring out the best in each other.

    Also when u have a player thats out of the team for so long wanting to be back, and finally being back, i guess there is alot for him to prove.
