    I don't think Kaka got your sarcasm. But realistically speaking, I can play those positions too, and am uncapped.

    Costa yes, but Thiago? Come on. He's Luiz Gustavo.

    Thiago from Bayern? He certainly distributes the ball better than LG.

    Yeah I was thinking about his daughter's shirts too...Dunga now looks crisp and clean like a "Mad Men" actor instead of an extra in a 1983 J Giles Band video with splotches all over the shirt.

    I preferred his sweater "game" tbh. He needed complete confidence to rock those things. Swag :D

    It just takes me back to when Luxemburgo wouldn't be caught dead without a suit and now he hardly wears one anymore!!:x3:

    Ah, sorry, I thought you meant Motta. Alcantara is always injured anyway. Can't build a side around a player like that.

    True, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Judas also has been hurt all of the time lately. Just ask Spain. :p

    He could play for them if absolutely necessary, they just don't need him.

    all the credit in the world to Neymar in that play, he receives the ball in the left wing then moves past 3-4 players back to the midfield, then makes a run to the box to receive the cross and score. Hard to track a player who's all over the field.

    Someone's gonna look at that picture, completely misunderstand it and claim Douglas Costa was offside. I mean look at where he is!

    That pass, man... that pass.

    I actually saw someone claim that he was offsides when watching in real time, but retracted their statement and said "it was close" after seeing the replay. :rolleyes:

    Oh, don't get me wrong, it's a good play by Neymar, but come on - it's not like he's the first player on the planet to rove all over the place. Someone should be picking him up - it's a free header I might be able to convert. Good offense doesn't preclude bad defense.

    Right when the pass was made I was honestly just waiting for the play to be stopped. Well on-sides though.
