mancini is testing the players, who cares about this game and the result, it's a training.

J Cesar, Solari, Dacourt and Suzao are now in. Toldone, Maroufi, and Figo are out. Can't see whom Suazo replaced.

exactly,and judging by the starting line up we can conclude that we clearly arent treating this game seriously ,although playing valencia we are in some ways doing things properly and lets say accordingly:rolleyes:

its good to see people already getting hyped up even though we are probably just:stoned: testing folk

Suazo is a gem.
Cesar? Forget about him.
Factic performed better than I had anticipated.
Cruz? He can never perform as a starter, can he?

We lost 0-2.

Valencia derserved the victory, but the result was inevitable seeing as we started so many youth players and Valencia started most of their first eleven.

A very poor performance from us. We created close to nothing in the first half. The second I don't know because my stream died on me.

Game ended 2 – 0 for Valencia. Valencia are now leading the table with 5 points.
It was a better sec half from us mainly because we fielded few more experienced players. That said we didn’t create too many scoring chances. Cruz had our best chances through out the game, however he obviously was lacking the sharpness and the touch to convert them.
Adri as the commentator even said is still looking bulky and needs to lose few more kilos. Further more it is yet again frustrating seeing him acting like a LW player mainly round about mid half left side of the pitch.
Suazo looked pretty decent and dangerous every time he got the ball - though obviously it will take him some time to be able to connect with our other forwards. Shame to see Ibra getting injured as I wanted to see the partnership between the 2 of them.

Crespo will again will be vital to season as he is the only clinical finisher in our squad. None of the rest of forward line-up is capable of what Crespo can do in the penalty box.

I’ll be in the stadium seeing our sec game against Arsenal tomorrow, hoping for a better overall game from our players.

I'm worrying about our stamina and Ibra's injury. Does anyone know when will players like Maicon and Cuchu return?

Well what can u expect when players like J.Zanetti, Crespo, Burdisso, Cambiasso, Maicon, Cordoba, Vieira, Chivu, Stankovic, Samuel all are absent and you start with 4 primavera players plus a Serie D player named Cesar.

Dont blame the players, blame Mancio for fielding a under-strength line-up. Even if it was just a friendly, it hurt me seeing us lose out again against those bitches valencia even if they played a near full strength team.

I am hoping Mancio fields a strong team tommorow, instead of testing out primavera players again. These friendlies are there to test out how strong ur strongest team u have available at the moment of time can be.

We better beat Arsenal tommorow, I want us to leave on a high note.

EDIT: Forgot to mention Suazo and Jimenez both looked promising, especially Suazo. I think we have got our own George Weah here. Also hoping Ibra didnt pick up any serious injury.

from reading all your posts, it is clear u don't like adriano...
they guy played a good game today AND FOLLOWED THE COACHES INSTRUCTIONS...
if you didn't realize, we were playing a 3-4-3 in the 2nd half, with cruz central and suazo and adri both wide....with suazo and cruz not coming back enough to link to the midfield, adri had to be the one to do it..

suazo looked decent?? lol...he was okay....one or tow runs in a game doesn't constitute playing decent....his passes were off and he dived at least 4 times and lost the ball...he had a decent opportunity on his left and blasted it wide...

can't believe people are still blasting adri...he played hard today...fought for balls, passed the ball, looked for teammates e.t.c and it is still not enough...

edit: worst players were cesar A, toldo, figo and jimenez (totally clueless and absent)

I haven’t got anything against him. However the fact remains that when playing where he was playing in the sec half (and no I’m not blind, hence noticed that during long periods we were playing 3-4-3) he is not as half as productive as he used to be years ago. Further the fact still remains that he needs to shed a few kilos. Now if you don’t want to hear fact, then stop reading and blindly defend whatever player in question.
