The source of this question is rather poor - my friend claimed that if Joey Barton were Italian, he would easily be an Azzurro. I disagree. What do you guys and gals think? Which Italian midfielders are better than him?

Dunno if this is a troll or not, but the Italian midfield is good enough if not very good with Pirlo (playmaker) Gattuso (DM) and Camoranesi (another ball winner and excellent crosser) manning the flanks. Options are De Rossi, Diana, Barone and perhaps even Gasbaroni.

There is plenty of depth. With Lippi planning on putting up a trident attack, and the reality that both Zambrotta and Grosso can aid the attack, this will be one of the more attacking Azzurri sides for quite some time....IF Lippi choses these tactics, which all indications seem to suggest he will.
