    Great result again!!! Get in Martin Palermo, made up for the fella!!!!

    Bring on Mexico!!!

  2. Chris says:

    I set it once, i’ll say it again, Im scared to play Mexico, not only do they want to always beat us, but they want revenge from the last WC…

    I feel bad for messi, the guy wants to score so bad…

    Ron, Tell me what ur thoughts of the game was, who was the star, and flop of the match? considering the 7 changes…
    I have to admit, Veron wasn’t too bad tonight.. i few mistakes, but not bad..

    Bolatti was ok i guess, i feel he was a bit far back at times, but maybe thats his style…and now he has a yellow… wooooow look at that, our 2 midfielders with one yellow each… hmmmmmm….

  3. Chris says:

    and I still think our defense is bad… whats the deal with that?

    one guy gets close to the goal, and we still lack in defense… i dont understand…

    Mexico will obviously be Argentina’s first big test of the WC and it will be our backline’s first real test.

    But I’m not worried.

    Messi can’t buy a goal but I really believe it is just a matter of time before he explodes.

    How about against Mexico?

    A perfect time.

    Veron gave too many balls away and sent too many balls high in the air in my opinion but he wasn’t a disaster, but he wasn’t the difference maker either.

    Hopefully, he won’t be fit to play on Sunday.

    Bolatti did a good job of distributing the ball but he wasn’t tested defensively.

    Aguero & Milito were not a factor, they might as well go back on the bench.

    and Palermo?


    What can you say?

    I think the issue for Argentina right now is the backline.

    It has not faced a team with a strong attack.

    Argentina’s backline has not been tested.

    We’ll have to wait and see if Jonas or Otamendi will play in the right-back spot.

    BTW, I was happy to see Pastore in the game but bringing him in with 15 minutes left in the game was almost a waste.

    Pastore needs more playing time.

    • Chris says:

      hopefully Pastore gets to play against mexico, i really want to see him link up with messi, i think he’ll do great.

      I watched the first half during lunch break, and I heard when pastore came in, the few times he linked up with messi, was well.

  5. pintadoazulblanco says:

    I agree Chris.

    Pastore should replace Veron or Tevez in the lineup.

    It won’t happen, unfortunately.

    It’s true, the few minutes that Pastore played he showed his talent and class.

    I think he would do a better job than Veron and Tevez of linking up with Messi.

    Messi the messiah!! First captaincy and he won the toss!! Go you little miracle!! Our hearts with you the mos humble and player in the world!!

  7. Fan40mill says:

    I agree with peoples thoughts on how the game went.

    Bolatti is no Mascherano so I’m not entirely comfortable with our replacement number 5, and in addition, as Chris said, they are both on yellow cards now.

    Veron, I felt had a bad game and played well only sporadically. Pastore for me was fantastic when he came on and I feel his Veron’s natural replacement in the first team formation- apparently he completed 17 of his 23 passes.

    The defence in truth had a bad day. Not asked to do much and what they did, they did it poorly. Demichelis is a better player than what he has showed so far and it’s critical he find form.

    Maradona did ok today with his changes, so far as he should have done them after half time.

    MARADONA plays the best role in his ever career!!
    He is mature, he is a soccer thinker not a diplomatic or a press person…. therefore he does not deserve to be judged by the envy and mediocrity of the rest of the world…
    that does not understand WHERE HE COMES FROM AND WHO HE IS ….

  9. Mikey says:

    I agree with the statements about Pastore. They really distributed the ball around more creatively when Pastore came in. He linked really well with Messi and showed some great ball control. Hope he’ll get some more minutes in the upcoming match! Messi just had some bad luck today, but I think if Pastore was playing with him, it could create more chances for sure!

  10. Humbird says:

    I really didn’t want Mexico, for the reasons stated above already, and because I have too many Mexican friends and neighbors. This match always causes alot of stress. We must get a lead early, we cannot count on another extratime miracle from MaxiRod.

  11. pintadoazulblanco says:

    Well, I don’t think any miracles will be needed this time around.

    I think Argentina is well positioned and ready to take off in this world cup.

    It’s time.

  12. Humbird says:

    I hope you are right. We do look to you for leadership! 😉

  13. pintadoazulblanco says:


    I think there are reasons to be confident.

    I have a feeling Messi is going to take off as well against Mexico.

    VAMOS ARGENTINA!!!!!!!!!!!!
