yeah, I remember that. Hansson totally owned him!Jimmy said:I'm starting to get more and more into this Champions League system. Usually always prioritise the Scudetto, but since that seem more or less wrapped up, I want us to succeed in the Champions League too. It's pretty obvious that we won't receive any credit for our Scudetto, so if we can go real far in the CL, we can prove everyone wrong.
Losing Vieira for this game was horrendous. I just hope that Mancini aren't toying with the idea of replacing him with Figo. Would be a gigantic mistake. Figo is thesedays a bench player for the big games. He was even outmarked by Biondini against Cagliari for freak sake. Dacourt is the way to go.
Have a feeling that Mancini will chicken out in this match and lose the plot. First step would be to play Burdisso as a left-back. That would immediately put ourselves in a position where we won't play our game, but just try and destroy their game-plan. And it will backfire. Players like Miguel need to stay at his side of the pitch, and you can only do that by playing possessional football and have attacking full-backs. It's time for Mancini to prove that he is as good as he has shown this year. Time for the big match.
Their biggest threat is of course Villa. However, after seeing Sweden-Spain a half a year ago, I know that we he can get outmarked by any player. We put Petter Hansson on him, whom uptil that point was a mediocre defender. He even started his career at a local club in my area.
So Burdisso (!!!) can definitely take him out of the game if he stays focused.
