Denco,you say that you'll only play a 3 man attack if someone like Rivaldo comes. Is Salas not good enough for you? If he isn't then what about Zalayeta? Zala impressed me in the Coppa Italia and didn't play badly in Serie A when he got a chance.
As for what you said about Tacchi. Alessio is a talented guy and deserves to play. I don't think he's going to leave so why not try to accomodate him?
Okay last season, in the league ,take away Trez and Del P, goal scoring by our team was thus, Salas 1 goal (penalty), Amoruso no goal, Zalayeta 0 goal, Zambrotta 1 goal, Maresca 1 goal, Nedved 4 goals, so for our attacking options without DP and Trez, our grand total is 7 goals. Some will say they didn't have much time to impress but if you are given a chance for me you should take it.
Salas was injured, true, but he was hardly prolific at Lazio, and the main reason we loved Nedved and Salas is because, who will you cheer for, we don't buy ppl that excite us, thats why anybody remotely resembling a super star, we jump for joy about. Because we hardly have any exciting stars.
Now Rivaldo is not only a great player but he will excite the fans and they will come and watch us more.
Don't know about you, but i get ashamed when i hear just 300 fans come and watch a competitive game involving Juve, but can you blame them, if they know Dp and Trez are not playing why waste hard earned money to watch players who are just equipped to give their all but with little style.
I am sorry its not enough just to win, you have to entertain as well and we haven't been doing that for a while now.
Tacchinardi, me not a fan, thats all, i prefered him as a defender, because to me he lacks pace, aggression, and his passing ability is not great, as he gives the ball away too much, he is okay but not my cup of tea in the midfield
