He can play in the centre as well though. Whether he's better out wide or central remains to be seen, but I prefer him to Appiah either way.
Thanks for the fill-in. The last part about appiah goes without saying.

you mean "i cant move from arthritis" chimenti. buffon has kept clean sheets against much better oponents. that something we should not worry about
why shouldn't we worry..?? buffon has kept a clean sheet against tougher opponents, yes.. but that's because of the strength of the midfeild.. not the defence and the keeper alone.. the forwards are the first line of defence.. with players like zlatan, dp, trez.. who rarely or never defend.. the responsibility goes to the midfeilders.. people like camo, nedved then the real defense starts with the two DM.. emerson and Blasi.. after that.. the CB's and SB's take their share..

now, with our recent problem.. we'll miss emerson, blasi, nedved.. which leave more pressure on the defenders.. moreover, it'll let the opponents takes hold of the midfeild and ease their attacking chances..

with all that combined.. buffon won't hold it long..

I think the one Andy posted is the most probable one.

However, i'd like Capello to try something else besides a flat 4-4-2.

-------------------- Buffon ---------------------
- Zebina -- Thuram -- Canna -- Birindelli -
------- Camo -- Tacchinardi -- Appiah -----
--------------- Zlatan --- Del Piero -----------
------------------- Trezeguet ------------------

(2) To rest Ibrahimovic

-------------------- Buffon ---------------------
- Zebina -- Thuram -- Canna -- Birindelli -
--------------- Tacchi -- Appiah ---------------
------ Camo ---- Olivera ---- Kapo -----------
-------------------- Trez --------------------------
I have post the first formation many times before....
But I'm so sure Capello won't use it...
