RedEagle said:Nah...Rui Costa will be amazing this WC. Mark my words the injuries he suffered were a blessing. He's not spent, plus right now he's 100%. I look for him to be very menacing.
Is Austria in the World Cup? I don't remember. Can someone refresh my memory.mathiaslg said:Will Figo and Rui Costa be anywhere near 100%? While Rui has rarely played, Figo has been bloody terrible for the last couple of months. Furthermore, how has Couto being playing for Lazio? Jorge Costa hasn't overly impressed me at Charlton, and that could be a major weakness.
Chill out Mathias. You're a bit a of a new cat here so we like to have fun once in a while. No harm. Anyways, just for the information today they stated that Figo is ankle is pretty healed but that his true problem is right now is getting fit. Tis why he has looked like utter crap the past few months. He hasn't been training in order to strengthen his ankle. Del Bosque felt that he could still get minutes out of Figo, albeit not 90 and still feel safe. Figo will now commence on a hard training regiment to get fit since the ankle has strenthened itself.mathiaslg said:I am not a supporter of Austria, so no need to be foolish and make such a jab. I am only curious, since I haven't heard a lot about Couto this year, and I have seen Jorge Costa play a couple of times for Charlton, and while he did fine, it was nothing special--and those two are apparently going to be your two CB's. As for Figo and Rui, I was just curious--and I hope for Figo's sake that he gets healthy, because he is a brilliant player (as in truly top 3 in the world) when fit, but it would be disappointing to see him at anything less than 100%.
...and you can't spell.What can i say im a pescimist!
