Imagine if baggio was given the 2 balls given to delpiero in the final..
NO Problem , the Italian team showed a good performance that could mean something at the world cup 2002
We missed Vieri.. Inzaghi is not a good striker
If u noticed the formation of the euro2000 team
Toldo/ Maldini/ Nesta /Cannavaro
no midfieldrs from Italy,,,No attckers
these areweak lines for the azzuri.
I remember Baggio as a midfielder and as a forward
Bye Baggio, welcome Totti,Fiore...
HARD LUCK ITALY !!GREAT CHAMPIONSHIP

Baggio indeed would have added alot:no question about that;
Vieri would have done the same:

Look for WC2002 Vieri and Totti/Fiore

Agree. Baggio would definitely turn those 2 chances del Piero had into something. Anyway, Alex del Piero hasn't really been up to his old self since the injury. Pity Vieri wasn't there. We would've won. Oh well... Better geared the boys up for 2002.

baggio is the best italian player today
i don t care how old he is . he should start for inter
such a shame
he knows what to do with the ball
he has a shot skill and everything else
especially knowledge cause he has been there before(world cup 94) he single handedly lead italia to the final

such a shame no one believes in him

WOW!Robby sei sempre il magnifico codigno!
WITH BAGGIO ITALY WOULD HAVE WON, EURO 96, WC 98 AND EURO 2000!
The real problem of the italian coaches is that they don't have the balls to win!I mean they've had the best players in the last 5 years but each time one or 2 major players were left out...and the team went back home with nothing!

Why does Italian coaches have to be SO STUPID and brain-less
as Berlusconi said about Zoff????

Just burn Del Piero and Inzaghi!They're hopeless!

Even the good old Marco Simone is BETTER than these 2 hugely
overrated and divers...

Anyways, lets hope Italy gets intelligent coaches FINALLY!
so you guys can win something....

MERCI LES MECS!VOUS ETES FABULEUX!
THE WORLD IS OURS...ONCE AGAIN!
THE WORLD WILL BE...BLEU BLANC ROUGE...AGAIN...AND AGAIN!

SYMPLY THE BEST OF THE UNIVERSE!

LA VICTOIRE EST EN NOUS...POUR TOUJOURS!

Get real, Baggio would not turn the result back, and the only different that he would make for Azzurri is that he would turn me to a Italy fan.
One thing to say about the final...the fate flowed around, and this time, god preferred France...anyway, Italy was lucky enough to enter the final!

I agree with what San Siro is saying, piss those two weak juve ****s of Del Piero and Inzaghi of they are no where near as good as other Italian attackers, with Baggio and Vieri we would have taken the Euro2000 no problem. They must never play for the Azzuri again.
Pirlo/Totti/Fiore are all worthy Baggio subs as Del Piero has failed miserably.
However I do disagree with two things you have said:
1. About Italy winning wc 98 with Baggio, he was there man he almost scored a great goal aginst the french.

2. Zoff is not stupid he is the best coach we have had for ages. Maldini was ok but not a tournament winning coach and Sacchi was a ****.

I cannot see why people even compare Maldini with Zoff.

Maldini was probably amore human person but Zoff although he is personally probably as evil as Marcello Lippi he is top coach.

Zoff's play was much more structured than Maldini's you could easily understand what was going on on the pitch and he didn't waste time man marking every decent player Italy faced.

At times man marking is apporpriate but at times it is not.

Sure in the W.C. Pesotto beat the crap out of Zidane but in the final Zidane didn't have akick.

I would have to say that Italy have improved to teh back 3 an da more attacking style. Italy are much better now with Zoff.....i just hope Trap doesn't screw it all up.

Maldini played a ridiculous 1-4-3-2 like this

__________________Costacurta______________________
__DiLivio____Nesta__________Canavarro______Maldini
________D. Baggio__DiBiagio__Albertini____________
___________________Del Piero______________________
____________________Vieri_________________________

This formation is an insult to Italian ability. Ridiculous.

Does Italy need 5 defenders? Italy only improved when Moriero was introduced and he played more attacking on the wing.

Anyway my point is that Italy is best served with 3 defenders and Zoff was the first to try it.

That is why although i think Zoff is personaly an pompus fool i respect his coaching.

Yes we need to stay with 3 deffenders, Maldini was a fool.

a 3-4-1-2 solution is perfect, we all wish that Baggio could come back and be great , but we all know that it's very difficult that it would happen.

I see italys future attack line like this:


Montella----------------------Vieri
----------------Totti------------

I wouldn't say Maldini was a fool but Zoff was better.

Also i would have to say that I don't see Totti as playmaker because i don't thik he carries the ball well enough.

i would make Totti the striker and Pirlo the playmaker. This is how i would line it up if all the players were healthy.

.......Pirlo........
....Totti..Vieri...
