    • Pirlo is getting pretty close to being liked by me due to his trolling move. However, he is just so damn ugly.

        He really is. When he lined up to take that PK, I thought a 55 year old man somehow snuck onto the field.

          My girlfriend who knows nothing about soccer, other than pointing out which guys she thinks are hot, basically said the same thing. Who is that old man?

                You don't agree that a striker when given five decent scoring chances finishes at least one?

                • 2 chances were great saves by hart, the other two were either out of place or blocked by a defender. He couldve made one, but not making them doesnt make him horrible. They were all incredibly hard chances.



                  Defender in the way



                  Ball was behind him, that he actually got it was amazing imo.



                  Only way to take the ball in the situation and was pretty good chance imo.

                  his chip over hart was blocked by John Terry who hustled back.

                  He created a lot of chances by perfectly times runs and passes and helped the teammates. While his finishing could improve, he certainly didnt play bad yesterday.

                    I think he would mostly disagree that they were "decent".

                    Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

                          They actually did that quite well towards the end of the season, but it's only really effective at home against lesser sides. Going all out offense against a good side (especially away from home) is a disaster. The Spurs game last year is a prime example of that.

                            That formation is really narrow, to the point of negating it's own offensiveness. You need someone who'll stay out wide and keep the defense from cramming the middle. If you want to start Carroll you pretty much have to drop Ba from the starting lineup.

                              Carroll would need effective wide play to be worth it. Winning headers from crosses is a huge part of his game and talent(however much anyone thinks he has).

                              Something to read on Carroll for those interested;

                                I agree. Width would be provided from the full backs though. I'm sure you have seen Debuchy and Santon is very offensive minded as well. Also, HBA does whatever the **** he wants basically. I still think it's Carroll or Ba though.
