I agree,Panucci's best days are long behind him.As for Sinoy,I agree,we need a left winger too,somebody like Taddei.I reckon this should be as much as a priority as filling the Emerson role.AS_Roma83 said:hes done, we need another RB. although i would keep him for a lot less money as a back-up. thats if he wanted to.
Its simple.None of them are as good as Emerson.I remember Emerson and Dacourt,now that was a solid combination.As for Perotta,he has not cut it for me.Remember,you can have as much quantity as you like,at the end of the day,its better to have fewer that possess more quality. :thumbsup:sinoy1 said:why try and fill up the emerson position when we have dacourt and perrota and de rossi and aquilani....we have enuff centre midfielders...just like we have enuff centre backs.
That's a pretty good summary, except given that the club isn't very well off financially, i'd say that there's no big need to improve on Cufre at LB for the moment.xabi said:I think the left side is a major problem. We need to get a left back, a left winger and then a right back. We should also consider a new goalkeeper and alternative forward.
For me Panucci all his career was better going forward than he was in defence. in that way he could at least be a danger to both teams in some sort of an attacking wing back role. Now he's old and has nothing to offer going forward anymore either and yet he remains as much of a soft-touch in defence as ever.GamE_Ove12 said:Cufre is a decent LB.. Panucci is a decent RB too if he plays under a good coach who can provide him with technical stability.. he is a classical right back only.. if you play him in any other rule ex. CB or right MD he'll suck big time.. he was decent in the last Euro and his performance against Sweden was nothing less than great.. i think he still has 2 more years to play..
I can't believe people still underrate Cufre so badly, it just amazes me how anyone can watch us play and still believe him to be just decent, and on par with Panucci. Defensively, he's about a hundred miles ahead of him.GamE_Ove12 said:Cufre is a decent LB.. Panucci is a decent RB too
Your fullbacks don't have to be attacking, who ever told you that? I'm after saying it a million times, Cufre's not an attacking player, he's not even a left back(he's doing a teriffic job there nonetheless), to judge him as one, and as an attacking force, is simply ridiculous. How would Stam, Nesta, Cannavaro, Cordoba, Mexes et al fair as "attacking" full backs? Awful. Why, because they're defenders, they aren't trained to cross and create danger, they're trained to do the opposite. And Lima is nowhere near Cufre as a left back, or as a player, not even close. Lima had stamina and pace, that's all, just because Cufre has those in abundance does not mean that he's on par with Lima, if Lima had Cufre's defensive qualities everyone would of loved the guy to death. Panucci is a good crosser of the ball, and decent at connecting the defence and midfield, but he's a shocking defender.sharp said:Cufre is very good as a CB, though I wouldn´t play him before Mexes or Chivu. As a left back he is on par with Lima, he can´t cross and doesn´t create any danger for the opposition. Panucci on the other hand has been very good the 2 last games and has a mean cross and wins many headers on the miedfield along with many offensive runs.
He shouldn't be one, no. But since we lack any other alternative, he's there, and he's been by far one of our best and most consistent players this season.sharp said:How would Stam, Nesta, Cannavaro, Cordoba, Mexes et al fair as "attacking" full backs?

That´s exactly my point..that´s why he shouldn´t be one..
