Traditionally it is always Brazil.

Who do you think it will be this time around???

Well, after us, i think the Argies will have an equally strong bench. France also.

Who else???:confused: ;)

But, who's fault is that? Brazil have some very talented players, but even so, if some of the more talented players were selected there is no guarantee that the players would even gel. The bench must come together as well as the starting eleven.

i'm thinking brazil or argentina- maybe france and maybe italy
brazil has alot of good forwards off the bench
the same goes with argentina with a couple good middies
as for france they are all around and the same with italy

Yeah i agree with you all, Argrntina as a magnificent bench, france to. But you should not forget Portugal. We have players like Simao, hugo viana, quaresma, Nuno Gomes, Capucho in the bench.






FORÇA PORTUGAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think Brazil wins this one in terms of names. France's bench doesn't look all that juicy to me, and argentina has built there team around 15-18 players so they won't have the most amazing bench but it will be nice.

Czar,
we are talking about the bench.....not the team!;)

Sam thing applies for you guys. Your excellent bench drew with Wales and Cameroon!
Hey man those were friendlies, they don´t mean anything... or beating Iceland 6-1 makes you the WC winner?

The best bench is not going to be at the world cup;)

Louis Van Gaal was able to perform a miracle... he was able to make a very talented team NOT qualify for the worldcup...

That my friends takes Genius

When ever you think your coach is terrible, thank God you didn't have Van Gaal... or else you too will be saying "we would have gone far had we qualified":mad:


Ze da Fiel, I will trade you Van Gaal for Filapao... Deal!!!

Goaless draw,


I'll do a deal. van Gaal and Felipao and we have no manager.....the people would vote on the 11 and they would play what they know.;)

As Romario says: "The good manager is the one that does not get in the way".;)

Well some teams bench players are good enough to play on the starting line.
Its all stratagy at world cup you match and study your apponante.
And they got alot more to prove then the starters.

Dont for get what the Portuguese Bench did to the German starters at Euro 2000.
Some weak team are going to turn faces.

Poland, Slovenia, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Ecuador maybe even the States .
