I think it's great that Lippi is even considering Zola into the team. Well not only because he's Zola, but I really like the way he's so open to everything. A coach's worst sin is being prejudiced and closed.. at least Lippi is showing minimal signs of this and giving everyone a chance as long as he is Italian and playing well. I think this is great for the development of the NT in general.
By the way I don't think it's personal that Lippi has so far ignored the Udinese players.. it's a matter of time.
i personally don't think he's the best man in the country to lead the NT but the team's play has been encouraging so far, well at least to me. I would say give him a chance.. at least he's not doing all the things that Trap used to do, and that's a good enough sign.
But then again I know I tend to be overly-optimistic about things.. I famously backed Trap up just before the Euros, remember. Man do I feel embarassed I did that.
