Nah, Im saying they are just as bad...WC defense might have a very slight edge b/c of Ribo's grit but this could be countered by Yobo's aerial presence in the ANC Defence... Go and look @ the Argentine game and you will see how many headers Batistuta missed before he scored his goals. Don't let the ...

The WC team would wipe the ANC team. 1) Playing only 1 DM would have been a nightmare. England, sweden and Argentina would have walked through that midfield just like a walk in the park. Interesting....against Argentina how many DM's did we use? I remember our midfield being composed of a Defender ...

I don't know about the WC '02 defence being far more organized. Especially after watching the Nigeria vs. Sweden match were the commentators were just calling us naive with the way we would leave Okoronkwo and West isolated with 3 or more swedish players running at them. If it wasn't for that Okoron...

Let me just make one point to you....at PSG JJ was tried in such a deep role as you have suggested and he was highly ineffective, at Bolton, JJ has a free role and can assist in defending/attacking as he chooses and we can obviously see how he has upped his game.... The formation may not look so goo...

I am sure you will agree with me that whenever you have a playmaker like JJ Okocha in team, you only have two options. You either play a 4-5-1 or a 3-5-2. This is where you are SO wrong....how can these be the only options? Have you heard of 4-3-1-2 Or 4-2-1-3??? These can all accomodate Seyi, Obod...

Of course you can play that, but Naija always has this notion of wing-play so if u r going to have 2 DM's you have to forgo a winger to bring in an attacking MF or if u have Figo you get a 2-in-one discount (and Okocha aint no Figo)... i was hesitant contributing to this thread but now i must yarn. ...

I don't think Ayo ever said this is not possible in 4-4-2 b/c as he mentioned in his above response, finjana and obodo combined to this effect, however Okocha is not a holding midfielder so if we play him, we have to play obodo or some other holding midfielder in there... Ayo even though we have our...
