Well, this will go the long-haul I imagine. But there are things that don't really make sense regardless. First image: Diego and Bilardo crying together. What? After all that was said in the media? After the burst-ups of Diego threatening to leave if his demands are not met. Later denying it? The press has reported insider info that the actors wanted to make public. Leaked. To place pressure on the opposite side. That Diego was angry at Bilardo and wanted him far away from him. Well, there are only two possible scenarios. That Diego completely loses it when he is under medication or under the influence of ... or that indeed the Doc has made Diego an Oscar winning actor. Well my nightmare inclines to the 2nd. There is no one as cabulero as el Doc. There is even a thought for a friendly game at Ramat Gan against Israel before the WC ... just as right before WC86 and WC90. So ... could the machiavelic brain of the Doc convinced the "sick" brain of Diego to act/make-up/invent a problem inside the NT? For the press to bite for it and now CREATE the enemy in the press? Just as in '85 and beyond? I have commented that it was Bilardo handling the initial "operation erase Roman". His incoherent, telex style responses to it. If this is indeed true, as my nightmare bluepinted, we are coming across one of the brightest brains we could encounter in football. Half a step away from total mental disorder. Unfortunately, regardless of all this speculation, the team played really bad most of the time. This mess dragged some of the atention away from it. Even in victory, as it was last Wedenesday's win in Montevideo. When I woke up I came to realize anything is possible in Bilardo's head. Anything ... even to think that the players will play with much more pride and anger to prove everyone else wrong. Press and public opinion. Just as in 86 ... .
