Michel, how do you know that Jardel isn't coming? Just because there haven't been a Jardel-Lazio link in the press it doesn't mean that it is not going to happen. I believe that he is the most chased attacker nowadays and Lazio is the team that needs goalscorers most among the top teams in serie A, meaning that there will be less competitors for the deal. Parma, Inter, Juve, Milan all have good attackers while Roma even though lacking good attackers will have such an offesive team with Emerson so they will pass the deal. Viola can't afford him.
With Jardel in the team there is finally a target for Conceciao's crosses, I mean Salas and Bokic doesn't seem intrested in heading in the crosses. Maybe they are worried that it will hurt.
Jardel would kick ass in serie A, but I won't cry if we have Rivaldo-Lopez.
I'll say one thing: IF Eriksson manages to include Rivlado,Lopez and Veron in the same team,and score goals,then he will be a mastermind.But he wont...
Lazio needs a heavy goalscoring striker.Lopez is exelent as setting up his partner but he is not a classic goalscorer.Rivaldo is not even a forward but rather an offencive midfielder.Can score but not a classic forward like Vieri,Crespo or Montella.
The sun will rise again...and it will be...GIALLOBLU!
