Simply amazing....about 75-80 days after Baggio damaged his ligaments, he made a dramatic return to first-team
action, appearing as a substitute (on 70 minutes) and
scoring twice!!! How can someone do that? He is unbelievable.:drool:

Baggio's performance is set to fuel an already big
media campaign to persuade Trapattoni to reconsider
the fate of Baggio who is hugely popular in Italy.
But the player played it cool after his two goals,
saying: "Trapattoni does not need to feel embarrased,
all I can do is give it my maximum but I have little
time left."

...must see Baggio at WC.:hopefull:

it is evident now that if baggio keeps up his scoring, and gets fit, he will be in the squad, if he isnt, traps should be shot.

however, its only one game so far, hopefully he keeps it up and plays in the WC.

Not sure why Del Piero should be sacrificed, he has done what baggio did for most of the season. however, one would think that both should be at the WC.

why can't baggio make it by not bringing inzaghi or del vecchio. or even better, why do we need so many defending midfielders??? we have more defending midfielders than bloody strikers.

Forza roby

If I have to hear that we should add Baggio in the expense of other players again, I'm gonna go berserk!!!!
Drop it, even Baggio already said that it's not gonna be fair for other players if they have to be dropped for him.
So just let it go!

Everyone has their own opinion but right now mdelpiero10 you're out of place and your post is laughable. I have to show a lot of respect to pirri who was always saying that Baggio shouldn't go and now he decided that Roby Baggio has too much passion to be denied from Italian squad, if you can't see it man then you are not Azzuri fan. Don't take it personal but you're the only to say such a thing today.

COME ON!!! Italians are putting their emotions and affections above logic. R. Baggio apparantly just had to slot those goals in. Secondly, he came on as a sub. I doubt whether he will play a full 90 minutes before the World Cup.

R. Baggio was and in some ways still is one of the greats. But he won't be ready for the World Cup like the others.

For once, I agree with you totally !!!

ADP should go, too. Keep Delvecchio home !!! And Pippo? He just came back from injury, and hasn't impressed me, why should he go?????

I posted a little while ago, saying he shouldn't go after this latest injury. At first I thought he should, then after considering his age and latest injury thought for sure 'no'.

But this guy...I don't know man. He could make a believer out of the biggest cynic in the world. What heart! The guy should be called Rocky Baggio.

My head says he should not go. I still believe he has rushed himself back to try and use these last few games to show he's ready. He cannot be fully healed. He admits himself that he's still in pain, but ignores it because of his love of the game. My heart says he not only deserves to go, but could be a decisive factor at the W.C. Truly amazing human being.

What a story it will be if he makes it. I would not want to be in Trapp's shoes.

I guess your post is the one that is laughable!!!
Do you even know what Baggio said????
And do you see both his goals???
I think Luca Toni deserved more credit than Baggio today!
Sure Baggio made a perfect comeback but he already said even next week against Juve he's not going to play more than one half.
How can he endured in the WC games?
What if he get seriously injured again becos he's not fully fit?
For sure I don't want to risk his well being!

If he didn't get injured in the last 3-4 months, I surely want to see him in the WC.

Besides, I think you're the one who's not the real azzuri fan!
You're just a real Baggio fan!
You don't care a bit about the azzurri, as you just care about one thing is for Baggio to be in the WC no matter what it takes.
Even sacrificing other players who had given their all in the Azzurri campaign.

Who needs 90 minutes?

You don't run around 90 minutes and HOPE to score. Its about effectiveness.

Someone says 'easy slot goals'....It doesnt happen without positioning sense. Baggio knows where he needs to move and get the goal.

I'd rather have goals than to have young-fit-promising-goaless-90 min-showpieces.

Why sacrificing Del Piero??? He has his best season since 1998, he dragged Juventus to the second phase of the CL, he is part of the most productive strikers-duo of Italy. Since he's back from injury he has played amazingly too (and he scored two goals against Perugia). It's great to have Baggio back but it has nothing to do with Del Piero. If you're still blaming Del Piero for his missed chances in Euro2000, than blame Baggio for his missed penalty at the wC94.

mdelpiero

I saw the live interview on Rai and as far as italian is my language i can tell u that u have misunderstood some details...

Baggio never said that he will not play more then 30 minutes against juve, he said that he will not take "rush decision" if he feels good he will play the full match, if not the half, etc...

And Baggio himself didnt said that it will not fair to sacrifice someone else, he only said that trap is right to take the most fit players and that for his part he will do his best to be fit...logical no??

So please dont talk in the name of Baggio with false arguments this make me realy BERSERK!!!

Pirri, Baggio will cop a bullet to get a chance to play in the Nazionale again!!
I was doubting that he would make such a comeback before but now unless he gets injured in these last remaining games I am all for him playing in the WC. I saw the goals and the first one was very good, 100% Robigol trademark overhead kick. I almost cried after seeing this goal. The second was a tap in from a ball heading in the goal already. His reaction, the team-mates reactions and the fans reactions show how much he wants to play in the coming world cup. So what if it won't be for 90 minutes, how many times did he play a full game in WC98? Baggio can play for 5 seconds and make something out of absolutely nothing!

There is only 1 Roberto Baggio!!! :proud:

I have no problem taking Delpi to the Cup because he's earned it. I don't think he should start as a striker, maybe a winger, but bring him. Delvecchio, on the other hand, played perhaps the worst match of his career vs. Milan yesterday. The guy is awful. Height or not, he shouldn't be considered.
If Maldini is going to the cup, Baggio should. Neither have to start, but I believe both should go. There's 20 spots to pick from after the 3 GKs, and that to, me, means there's space for them - due to their leadership and skills and effectiveness. Each week, Baggio will become stronger. If he doesn't snap it again in Serie A, which is a real possibility if he rushed back, than he should be fine by late May judging on his lively form of yesterday.
The advantages of bringing Roby are obvious, but there's one unmentioned here: His presence in Asia, where he has so many fans, could give Italia a type of "home field advantage" with the fans. :D :cool:

One thing is for certain, just one game back after a serious injury that was suppose to rule Baggio out of the WC, and he scores 2 goals. Now, I know DP has been playing better these days, and afterall I am a Juve fan, but, how freaken long has it taken DP to get back in form ? Even then, he's still not scoring on a regular basis. If he's going to be a striker, he's got to score goals. Bottom line. I don't mean penalty goals either :rolleyes:
