after reading this:



QUESTION: Are you a bit disappointed that a slightly saddened Alvaro Recoba returned to the dressing room after you made your third substitution against Porto?

MANCINI: "I honestly didn't even notice it. Apparently it happened twenty minutes from the end and I was concentrating on the match we were losing 1-0. I was told about it in the press conference. I don't know if it's true and in any case I didn't notice it."

QUESTION: However, you are giving Recoba several chances to play, but perhaps not as many as other players...

MANCINI: "I don't think this is true. Recoba has played a lot more and a lot more often in this start to the season than last year."


Recoba is one of the best in the world.. he can make alot.. he can change things, he was doing great when Mancini used him many games in a row untill Rome game.. then he keeped ignoring him like he was the reason of our lose that day though Recoba always gives Rome the pain in the ass.

Mancini is saying that Recoba is playing more than he used to than last year!! what kind of a joke is this? I realy cant take this anymore,, he have to play or to leave, this all make no sense to keep him on pench.. sorry but he is the only leader I belive he can manage to make the team play in the current situation(JZ absence (untill now!!!!!!!), and Materazzi-Favalli are our defenders(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)) sorry but players like Adriano all he cares about now is to score goals, he dont care about the team, for sure he only thinks about himself first, a player like Oba is so young to count on him, he is good but he needs assistnat from a bigger player and a true leader.. he cant just take the ball and run like an asshole and then give it to the opponent`s defenders!

I just dont know what to say! Im so pissed off! so pissed off!!

I'm feeling ya devious! I think the same. Recoba should be a key player. No doubt! He should play anytime he's fit, and he is super fit this season. I don't know why Moratti, who has always loved Alvaro, doesn't put more pressure on Mancini to play him?? I mean it's his club isn't it? Mancini is just passing through! Remember when Berlusconi told Ancelotti to play with two strikers or else...? Moratti should do the same. Play Recoba already you fool!

APPIANO GENTILE - He's the only Inter player currently away on international duty with a competitive fixture to think about. Separating Alvaro Recoba's Uruguay from a place at Germany '06 is a two-legged play-off tie with Australia, with the South Americans at home in Saturday's first leg. "We will have to give our all in these two matches," Recoba said to Inter Channel. "We're a bit sorry because with the team we have we could have qualified for the World Cup without going to the play-offs. We made mistakes in too many matches, but we still finished fifth in the South American group, and now we have this chance in the play-off. It will be difficult because we'll play two matches in just four days, with the trip between Uruguay and Australia in between. We'll have to try and get a good result at home so we can play away to them with more tranquillity. And in these matches it's important not to let in any goals when you're playing at home."

Uruguay and Australia faced off four years ago in the play-offs before the Korea/Japan World Cup. But that time Australia were at home in the first leg, and there was no lack of controversy although Uruguay made it through. "Everything started from the fact that we played the first match in Australia, and to come back there was only one plane and we asked to let at least eleven of our players who played travel first class," El Chino recalled. "But they wouldn't listen and only Australia travelled first class, while we had to make a twenty-hour trip in different conditions after playing a tough match. Our bad moods started from that and there were arguments. Many things happened, but in the end it was us who deserved qualification on the pitch. My country lives for football, our opponents won't find an easy environment, but only as far as the fans are concerned. Ninety thousand tickets have already been sold."

Recoba continued: "There was a time when I wasn't doing very well in the national team, then I fractured my ankle. I had put myself to one side for a while. Now I'm expecting us to qualify. I'd really like to get to play my second World Cup, also because the first took place in strange countries like Japan and Korea. And I think that me and several of my team-mates didn't get the best out of it. To give you an example, we were a three-hour flight away from the stadium we were playing in - really difficult conditions. So I would like to play another World Cup, and also become the most-present Uruguayan national team player."

I hope Recoba will make Mancini looks very bad , though I hope good luck for Australia

It's not really ethical

...but I wouldn't mind if Moratti did it anyway.

it reminds me of Denzel Washington from Man on Fire, when he says that mexican captain with a bomb in his ass:

'I wish you had more time'

this applies to Recoba... or maybe Mancini or Moratti... perhaps to everyone at Inter...

I understand what you mean about ethics, but Inter is still Moratti's club! He's the boss, isn't he? I know a coach should benefit from maximum authonomy, but sometimes, when enough is enough, a little authority and pressure from a president is justified.
