Can someone be as kind and set up a poll. Would like to see what the majority thinks.

As you probably know, Amauri got his passport so is ready to be called up.

But do YOU want him to be part of the WC squad.

he's gonna be the last minute 'outsider' into the squad.

just like Theo Walcott, with Sven the last time round.

The expected reason : 'Amauri is a different type of striker'

NO

Its not a position we are weak at, makes no sense to cap him.
Yeah, I think it is a position Italy is weak at. Yet, with the kind of midfield and attackers around him, he would be useless.

When fit, he's better than Quag, Boriello, Pazzini, etc., so he wouldn't exactly be useless.

Anyway, I don't care really.

hardly better than borriello and pazzini is not in the team

quags is our playmaker, completely different positions :pp

Well, I said injury free and Boriello has often been given the benefit of doubt when injured so why shouldn't Amauri.

There's another 2 months before the call-ups, obviously.

Wasn't Pazzini in the latest squad?

Quag is not my playmaker and I was asked to set the team (the poll). :pp

Depends on how many strikers one would call up. I only see Di Natale and possibly Gila ahead of Amauri. Iaq is injured as well. Rossi, idk. :undecide:

i don't think we're desperate enough to call this guy when our other options are borriello, gilardino and iaquinta. he has little on those guys except maybe borriello. I wouldn't call a brazilian of Borriello's level (or anyone not italian)

Exactly, he wouldn't be an improvement over what we have, so if we must play and lose(hope we win) , then might as well play an Italian.

Let's forget that he is Brazilian...
is he having a brilliant season? No, not at all indeed. 5 goals in 1943 serie A minutes, 1 goal every 400 minutes!
The ****ing Calaiò scored 6 goals in 1178 minutes!

It is true that he can ofer something different, but you cannot play a self proclaimed Brazillian in the Italian National Team.

Fvck no.

And the answer was the same when he was in a great form in his first few months with Juve, quality doesnt matter at all in this case, but yeah even those who were "tempted" to say yes back then has to have been set straight by now.

the 1986 team

- Galli- crap
-Bergomi- World class ( 22 years old)
-Vierchowod-world class (26 years old)
Sciera- Past his prime but better then what cannavaro is today ( 33 years old)
Collovati- lost a bit of pace but still a fantastic defender in his own right- 30 years old.
Antonio Cabrini ..slightly past it but not old ( 28 years old)
Antonio Di Gennaro ( Flash in the pan with verona 27 years old)
Carlo Ancelotti- ( good hardman.26 years old)
Salvatore Bagni( never rated him..28 years old)
Bruno Conti ( past his peak but still a great player) 31 years old
Spillo Altobelli ( a unique player i find hard to describe..clever striker but not world class) 31 years old.
Guiseppe Galderesi ( 25 years old) he was quick..but he just couldnt finish to save his life.
Fernando De Napoli ( 22 years old) a workhorse..nothing more nothing less.
Vialli- up and coming..22 years old
G. Baresi- Good player ..not in his brothers class
tardelli- bench player at this point..way past his prime
Paolo rossi- a setinimental pick..giordino or pruzzo should have been here...awful player at this point 29 years old ( but played a lot older)
Nela- Tough but not skilled. ( 27 years old)
Serena- Never rated him.. * 26 years old
Tricella 27 years old..another part of that famous verona side..average defender who over achieved..see nicolas legrottagile.
.still tho better then him.

this is a far better team then the one going to the world cup in 2010 in my view..also younger too.
