Captain who?

So, there's all these talks about the captaincy. This had become the new craze among Argies, to guess the next captain.

Does it matter who wears the armband?
Does it matter when your DT is son of god?

In this case, the armband will mean nothing but that the player is allowed to have a word with the ref. When in doubt, I know who I'm going to be looking for, I'm sure you will too.

A captain is a person who is at the head of or in authority over others, the chief, leader, commander, head honcho...

I haven't been around lately, sorry for the lack of updates.
In the last 2 weeks, some important matters took place.

First, we have Roman back with Boca Junior. Villarreal allowed Riquelme to break his contract, and the CAM is already in Japan preparing for club world cup with his beloved team. It's a rare incident where a player is allowed to go free before end of his contract, and this action might have long term consequences for the club. We shall, however, be thankful that the situation had finally resolved.

Then we had Simeone leaving Estudiante to coach River. A promotion for the young DT obviously, a difficult assignment nevertheless. River had been in knee deep of financial troubles, let's hope el Cholo could turn that around.

FIFA club world cup is going on right now. Boca will play its first match on 12th december (early morning here) and AC Milan the day after. This is why Roman wanted Boca. Boca is paying big bucks for the enganche, better get what the money's worth.

Without Tevez, there was only Messi up front.
Let's be honest, our defense is not that good to begin with. When pushing for width and adding help to the front, especially when one of the forwards is missing, it became even wearker... I mean, the best defenders we have playing are probably Zanetti and Demichelis, one is old, one had barely made a name for himself.

I'm not surprised we lost, just disappointed we couldn't even draw when Messi FUCKING SCORED FIRST!

Review when I'm not so emotional...

Download the match here. (Filefront rapid free download, italian commentators...)

Columbia 2:1 Argentina

Not only did we allow goals, we lost.
Red card for Tevez, 2nd Columbian goal also has some offside possibilities.

Torrent & review coming up.

3 : 0 Bolivia

starting lineup:
Ibarra Demichelis Milito Zanetti
Mascherano Cambiasso
Messi Riquelme Tevez

Don't think I'll have to say more. This is pretty much what I always wanted. 4-2-3-1 and it got us a 3-egg without an ideal #9.

International goal #1 for Aguero.
Roman got 2 again.
Gago went on about 70th minute replacing Cambiasso.
5 minutes later, after Roman scored our 3rd goal, Aguero was subbed by Maxi.
Tevez was switched out by Denis in the end.

Next stop, Columbia.
