the only thing that Mancini is bothering me with is not playing Adriano upfront as the last striker. I mean he plays the best football when hes the main reference point of the team and thats why he prefeers Recoba rather Martins with him since with Oba he drops back and nearly goes on the wings. Such a player like Adriano desont have to go far from the box.Yes, we dont have a true finisher (trezeguet,gilardino type etc) but Adriano with Brazil is fine in the box or near the box (since he has great shots which can beat goalkeeprs from outside the box). Id wish to see this from Mancini. Even when Adriano plays good and scores he STILL IS WSTED on the wings. I mean hes the type of man which you give the ball to he dribbles or shhots not the player which has to work his way out to pass to other strikers. That is the Zlatan type of work. If we do get Ballack (not because I want him) just to point it out we can play this system
Zanetti----Cordoba---Samuel-----Cesar (if he comes from lazio)
Cambiasso-Pizzarro/or some other new player
I mean this is not a transfer market speculation thread im just pointing out that with ballack or some very high rated midfielder we can use Adriano upfront alone. He has the power to navigate up there..
for example we can do this system now with
or id prefer using Martins speed to keep defenders on him and open up for Adriano whilst Inter r doing it the other way right now.
Id agree with this
vvv Adriano vv
+ martins then he will have the wingers helping him..
