See like he's trying to get the ref to protect his players against us. Talking like we are reckless tacklers.

Quote:
Let there really be fair play, let the referees understand what the words fair play mean," said the Argentina coach.

The Fifa fair play banner will be carried on to the pitch before every match by a quartet of boys.

"Let's not abandon the little boys," said Maradona, whose side open their campaign against Nigeria on Saturday.

Maradona described the Super Eagles as "rough and hard", adding that his players were "prepared for that".

World Cup 1986 - 'Hand of God' beats England
Maradona, who led Argentina to World Cup glory 24 years ago and to the final four years later, claimed to have experienced the unsporting side of the tournament in the opening game of the 1990 event.

"When the fair play [slogan] was introduced in 1990 I was kicked so hard they almost knocked my head off against Cameroon," Maradona said.

Cameroon beat Argentina 1-0 but had two players sent off in a bruising encounter.

"And we had to swallow the yellow card of [Claudio] Caniggia's hand ball and compared with the kick I got from Cameroon, he was Heidi," said Maradona, alluding to the young girl protagonist of Swiss children's books.

KPOM.

Its plain obvious, he's trying to influence the referee for tomorrow's game and its also a window into the mind set of the Argies for tomorrow's game. I hope Largerback is reading as well as the players and be ready for this shameless play by Argentina.

When he says his team are prepared for our rough tackling, he means they'll be rolling about feigning injury trying to get us cautioned. How is that fair play? I really hope we whoop them tmrw.

The refs should watch out for cheating-hand balls, diving, shirt pulling, elbow nacking etc-. Argentina is known for chaeting. FIFA should watch out for drugs and enhancements. Argentina is well know for that. Now the chief of al these; cheating and drugs is presently the coach of Argentina. Hei refs. Hei FIFA.

I hope so cos I'd be very pissed if we fall to those antics again. This is Africa, most of the 50-50 calls should go our way and no penalty unless it's glaring. Our boy Haruna also has a diving certificate. If we get one over these argies tomorrow, it'll be fine. We should target guys like Mascherano and Heinze, they can concede penalties.

Maradona is playing Nigeria but he keeps quoting Cameroon. :???:

This is the difference between a native coach who can feel the heartbeat of his country and a journey man working on his retirement plan.

In any case, the Super Eagles will deliver tomorrow no shaking! :D :D :D

Alex Ferguson asks for protection for his players in the build-up to any big game, then sends his hatchet men out to butcher any bright, young talent. Wenger refuses to see it, when the red mist descends over his progeny. Benitez preferred to blame it on the budget. And Mourinho, well it was just another installment to his Them and Us escapade. This is mind games from a manager who in the past few weeks is beginning to show maturity. How much of this is Maradona and not the puppet-master Bilardo, who knows.

A good manager would have done what Maradona had done, pointing out in advance the faults of the other team. The 4.1.9 guy we have was just standing there like a mumu.

Call Maradona all the names you want, he is an indigenous manager, and that gives him and his team an advantage any day - as no foreigner need contemplate going beyond the semi-finals.

Karma is truly a beeyotch!
