D'Agostino is needed more than Diego in the team I believe. It would be nice signing for us to replace ineffective Poulsen. He will cost a lot cheaper than Players like Alonso, Toure etc.
Obviously Diego is a great player...I don't think anyone here is disputing that. And I'm not suggesting we don't need any creative reinforcements. I think we should sign either a creative CM or RM to take some of the pressure off Gio and Camo.
Id go with flat 4 in the middle,Diego on the left,cutting in and making one more...he did that against Dinamo ZG few years ago and he bamboozeld us so....
D'Agostino and Sissoko in the middle dictating pace and camo as pure winger on the right.
That kind of play we played before only with 2 strict DM's that can't create. This kind of formation is used in Croatia NT too,but requires fast and technically gifted left back that we have in Pranjic and Juve doesn't have....for now.
Both Rakitic and Krancar are pure terqratista's,classic no10 while Modric can be deployed on any mid position but he's also no10 that played on the left most of his career. STH like D'Ago....
I know Mark, but still, a guy who can't defend or defends worse than Tiago can not be the best tackler in the league and if he's too slow he can't intercept so many passes (well, unless he's too lucky and the opponents gift the ball to him).
I did think that he's a Tiago or a Liverani, and i don't know why. Maybe because he was indeed like that prior to this season. But this year the guy exploded. Finally the super talented u21 youngster and the hope of the azzurri shows something worthy of the atributes he was getting as a youngster.
Might easily be a one season wonder and he might easily never play this way again, though.
