Well, I just sat down a couple of minutes ago and checked out a couple of sites, which to my great suprise announced that Recoba and Zacc have been discussing the possibuility of playing Recoba in a role similar to that of Pirlo. And apparently he has already been tried out in that position..
So I was wondering what you guys think of this idea?
Personally im quite torn.. I actually have quite big difficulties in predicting which formation Zacc is considering... but this would be my guess:
---Cafe - Matrix - Canna
Zanetti - Recoba - Zanetti - Coco
Recoba obviously (IMO...) posses the qualities when it comes to spreading out the game, playing through balls and shooting long shots (i believe that the fact that none of our midfielders are a big thread in long distance shots is one of our biggest problems).
Therefore I have no doubt that he could be a really good thing for our midfield!
However, Recoba also has a tendencie which he will HAVE to leave behind. His dribling will have to stop, because loosing possesion in the position where he will apparently be tried out can/will have disastrous consequences. I believe that the reason why Pirlo has been so succesful is exactly because he has been able not loose the ball in compromising positions. If Recoba is able to force himself to not do risky moves (and as a consequence loose possesion) then im sure he will be as succesful as Pirlo
