    Thank you Albiceleste2010 for the very, very kind words. You are such a good man.

    And thank you rest of the posters for your discussion and posts. I keep reading them every day; at the very least they help to distract my mind and bring some joy/relief.

    I so desperately want that we win the Copa and the World Cup, more than ever.

    My father had been sick for 1.5 years, and three months ago when he could barely talk he said that he wanted to see Messi lift that World Cup with me, like we saw Maradona lift it all those years ago together.

    I know now that even if Messi lifts that World Cup, I won’t get to share it with my father. This thought leaves me so heartbroken.

    I can definitely appreciate the sentiment and yes of course it hurts. It will hurt even more if let's say Argentina do win it all in Qatar 2022 and Messi finally lifts that trophy, yeah your father will be still there with you but he will be there in spirit. He will always be a part of you in your heart.

    FCB are apparently desperate to sign Lautaro. Inter is not budging on the price-tag of 111ME. Barcelona doesn’t have the money and are trying to sell the mediocre players they have to raise funds. I understand they want to replace Suarez sooner than later but they’ll probably have to sell Griezmann.

    I think for the short term it is good for us if Lautaro and Messi play together week in and week out but in 3-4 years FCB is going to be a very mediocre side(Even though that’s what they are now and rely on Messi). I think a deal will eventually get done but Inter will make FCB pay for it and as they should.


    If Messi can hold on for another 2 years at this level and if Lautaro can improve his IQ, I think we’ll have a great partnership. That aspect will take care of itself and Scaloni will have time to get the midfield and defense together by then.


    Personally, I’m glad Scaloni has been hard on players who don’t get minutes for their club teams. No more guarantee spots and no more free rides of the gravy train. It was seriously embarrassing having bench warmers starting for us.

    Perfect approach to take as a manager and honestly I am starting to love the fact that he is in charge

    Marcos Rojo caught violating the quarantine in Argentina to go out and have "fun" with friends for like the 500th time... how many brain cells does this guy have? Hopefully our coaching staff learns now to never call him up again.

    Personally, I don’t believe that Barcelona is the perfect environment for Lartoro Martinaz.
    Looking back to the history we can find, Barcelona club doesn’t know how to get the benefits of availability of the classic players specially, when it comes to classic strikers. That’s why many players like Ibrahimovitch, Suariz as strikers & Riquelme as a play maker didn’t find themselves there. In Barcelona, they always consider playing in pace as their first priority despite the player’s qualities and that’s why you find a low level player like Pidro became a brilliant in Camp-no. If Lartoro wana evolve, it’s better for him to stay in Inter for one more season or let him move to Juvi, Chelsea or Tottenham where his brilliantly can be insured.

    I would rather Lautaro go to Premier League and he plays for either Tottenham, Manchester United or Chelsea

    Suarez? Hes had a brilliant career with barca. That example doesnt make any sense. When ibra was at barca Messi was the false 9 and ibra became useless on the wing. Both examples are not good. Lautaro with barca should work, since Messi and him are great together the only issue would be his passing and build up play which he could improve upon.

    spurs/united would be awful answers since theyre trash teams. With trash cosches. Chelsea just bought werner so thats not happening

    Alario scores against Bayern 9 minutes into the match off a throw in. Was ruled offside at first but it counts!

    Scaloni mentioned that Icardi is still in his plans. If he is, then I'm guessing it is between him and Alario that will get into the NT squad.

    Not really national team news(anymore that is) but Pastore will probably end up in the MLS. Roma are trying to offload him and he could end up here in the US. I think within the last 10 years or so, I don’t think we’ve had more of a disappointment than Pastore. There was so much promise there but he just never put it together. His last season at El Globo and Palermo were very memorable and gave us hope. Even his first year in Paris, he was quite good, this is before PSG went Hollywood. But It turned out Pastore was never a player that never had the drive or dedication to become world class. He had flashes of brilliance here and there but it never penned out. Quite sad.

    Well, I’m still sure he’ll be better than 99% of the MLS.

    Well, Hopfully you are correct. I'm not saying it will be impossible for Larotro to have a brilliant career in Barcelona. Yeah it can be happening but if the suitable circumstances will be provided & the team mentality to be changed.

    About Suaraz, yeah he's doing not bad, helped the team to get all of the achievements specially in 2014 - 2015. But I'm still convinced he could've done better if he was in different team and I could say he was better in Premium league.

    About Ibra,
    I'm Pretty sure that Guardialla had invented the Position of false 9 in the middle of season of 2009- 2010 to overcome the weakness of adaption as Ibra was lost & he couldn't prove himself which I believe it's mental issues of Barcelona as a team when it comes to dealing with Classic Positions.

    Lautaro going to Barcelona...then who goes to Inter to replace Lautaro because Inter won't just let him go for free

    I believe its just that typical situation where a club denied their star playing will be going anywhere, but they'd eventually sold. This happens all the time:laugh:

    Yeah it does but because of COVID 19 I think that this sale probably won't happen

    Cavani going to Inter makes sense especially if it means Lautaro going to Barcelona unless a next team like Juventus decide to throw their name into the Lautaro sweepstakes

    It is still a bit early to know who will go where. Cavani to Atletico is another possibility but Inter have also been linked to Gaich. Not sure how that partnership with Lukaku would work but who knows. Speaking of Gaich, it is paramount he doesn’t go to Russia, or some middle of the table English side. He’s developing nicely and he knows to go somewhere he can continue to develop. Spain and Italy would be ideal.
