A lot of these guys are defensive midfielders but not all of them. I didn't call it a defensive midfield poll for that reason because I'm sure a lot of you would be quick on the draw to state it.

Hopefully a defensive midfielder wins it.

Pirlo (biased). Baraja is a great choice as well.

Vieira... by a canter.

Luigi... what's the point in you (I'm bugging you on this solely because you are now officially a Milan mod. and becuase I want to :)) trying to find the various teams realistic starting 11's.... when you don't want to vote for a realistic team anyway?

Pirlo as the def. mid... with Zidane doing the Gattuso dirty work.. or what?

Nope - Becks (if he wins) is doing that in one team, I reckon, he can do it in one more.
Wait a sec - are you complaining (secretly) that it is not certain Juve player there for teh Italys?

Pipo Baraja, good in attack, good in defense, good in free kicks, great character. By now, the best CM in Europe, IMO.

Along with Helguera... not Zidane.

By no means. I'm complaining that it's the wrong Milan player. Gattuso should obviously be in this poll. Or at least one of the two normal starters... Perrotta or Zanetti... or Ambrosini if it suits you better (Maresca of course isn't an option as long as he's not a Juve starter).

Other folks tried to be realistic when plotting down their supposed NT's, but for the casual observers looking to this forum to get some info on how Italy will line up... they're in for a surprise given the rather non-typical Italy team selected by our flamboyant Rossoneri connoisseur here. No less and in particular the fielding of such 4 man midfield... behind two strikers, with attacking wingbacks.....

----------Cassano----Vieri
Del Piero-----Pirlo---Totti---Camoranesi
Zambro----Nesta----Canna------Oddo
---------------Buffon

These are the players who've been included (save for Cassano who will propably be in the next striker poll?)... and this is obviously far, far, far off base.
If you take away DP and Pirlo and introduce two ball winners- that may be Italy's EURO team, but it makes a hell of a difference wouldn't you say?

Helguera plays as a CD, as far as I have seen real M this year with Becham. Not as a Gatusso. May be I have seen teh wrong games? But I saw him as a CD only. The last time I saw IH in teh middle was quite a long time ago ...

glen i tried not to be biased. the midfield i had in mind was:


ambro pirlo totti gattuso

now if i had gone with that id definately have cries of milan bias. to avoid that i went with this line up although i agree it is unlikely. i even put dp in to appease the people i figured would complain but i see they still complain;-)

theres no way i was gonna put in zanetti or perrotta and maresca is not a likely choice under most circumstances. so tell me if i had gone with my original idea that you wouldnt be all over it?
