Hmmm...Llamosa vs. Agoos in a foot race. That would be ugly! :tongue:mathiaslg said:What the U.S. needs, IMO, is the best man-marker possible. We need to mark Olisadebe out of the game, and that will greatly help in neutralizing Poland's offense. Carlos Llamosa is much better in this regard, and also has more pace than Agoos. As such, I would place Llamosa in the U.S.'s starting 11 at the expense of Agoos. However, I know Arena won't, so this is all academic.
In a rare moment of insight, I think Ty K. correctly noted that Donovan was whistled because it was a tackly from behind, even though he did get the ball.Oldsocfan said:The tying goal today was a result of yet another questionable call from the ref as Donovan got the ball first and then his feet tangled up with a Korean afterwards. We've seen something like that a thousand times with no calls but Herr Mier of course thought otherwise!
Sorry my friend but I must disagree.Oldplayer said:IMHO, Llamosa is an even biger liability than Goose. He is cut from the same cloth as Regis. Speedy but prone to brain fade. He got long-balled to death as I remember in the Dutch game. (Help me here. I think that was the game I was concerned with)
I really hate this guy, he fucked with the Dutch NT and Barcelona on several occasions. He's a really lousy referee if you ask me :yuck:Oldsocfan said:We've seen something like that a thousand times with no calls but Herr Mier of course thought otherwise!
A central defender needs to be mentally sharp as well as physically gifted. Agoos has over a decade of international experience compared to less than one year for Mastroeni. He and Pope have played side-by-side for the better part of 6 years so their understanding is excellent. And Agoos is an intelligent player with good anticipation.lilphenom said:What can agoos do that masterouni cant do ???Sure agoos has 120 + caps , but he only has one more world cup cap then pablo.
