Albiol said today he only knows Adriano of playing Playstation :D

Hopefully that inspires adriano to repeat his performance of last time we faced valencia.

That means he hasn't recovered from his foot problem. Means Oli replaces him.

Big blow for us I'd say, we could have done with a big and strong midfielder like Vieira against Valencia.

Ibrahimovic-Adriano
Stankovic
Zanetti-Dacourt-Cambiasso
Maxwell-Burdisso-Materazzi-Maicon

I disagree. Patrick is a blow. But we can cope without him.

It means jz,cucho and dacourt and deki have to work harder than usual but they are more than capable.

This is a huge blow. I would have included him in the side anyways just to throw Flores off. There was no point in giving away this massive tell to them so that they can adjust adequately. They would have expected to face Vieira and would have prepared accordingly. If Mancini had been smart he would have put him in there just to fool them so that when the line ups come out Flores is left scrambling to adjust.

All the same I see us conceding a lot more space and fouls because of this Vieira is huge at coming out of the defense with the ball. He is a threat on corners and is not bad at getting forward. Dacourt perhaps shades him in his ability to cover the backline a little better but I am still very shaken up by this change in our line up.

Ok. I didn't check exactaly what he did. I know he missed the weekend cause of a foot problem. Either way he is injured.;)

Figo is too lazy to play from the start. We would conceded too much space.

Agreed I would start with Dacourt and see where it goes from there. Albelda would not allow Figo much time on the ball and the strikers would become really isolated with such a congested midfield.

Vieira is very important and its quite a blow for us. Hopefullly he makes it for the 2nd Leg in Mestalla, when both Vicente&Baraja returns for Valencia.

I think we need to some how make sure that Albelda gets a yellow in this game. I just noticed that he is on a caution and Mancini should make that part of his game plan to ensure that he is out of the second leg. He is their star in midfield and without him Valencia have done piss poor.

Plus the guy has a bit of a temper problem anyways so I dont think it would be that hard for someone like Figo or Ibra to get him agitated.

Goalkeepers: 1 Francesco Toldo, 12 Julio Cesar Soares.

Defenders: 2 Ivan Ramiro Cordoba, 4 Javier Zanetti, 6 Maxwell, 11 Fabio Grosso, 13 Maicon, 16 Nicolas Burdisso, 23 Marco Materazzi, 25 Walter Samuel.

Midfielders: 5 Dejan Stankovic, 7 Luis Figo, 15 Olivier Dacourt, 19 Esteban Cambiasso, 21 Santiago Solari, 91 Mariano Gonzalez.

Strikers: 8 Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 9 Julio Ricardo Cruz, 10 Adriano, 18 Hernan Crespo.

OMG Vieira is not there! :eek::depress:

This is a huge blow, considering that we have a tough midfield battle with Albelda. Hopefully, Mancini will not even think of starting Figo in this match but utilizes Dacourt instead. We need steel in this match, not skill.

I have a feeling that tomorrow, either Matrix or Nico will cannon a superheader past Canizares.
