    It's just a shame Aquilani isn't a holding midfielder then because with his slender build, he'd be perfect.

    But Spidey, you didn't seem to think along these lines in this very thread, as Dossena has already intimated. Let's look at it again, shall we.

    I don't think his physique is an issue as he is an attacking midfielder, if he were a holding midfielder I'd be concerned. I think yossi is showing a bulky physique is neither here nor there for an attacking midfieder.
    [/quote]


    So here you're saying *you do* need a bulky phisique to be a holding player!! Fucking hell man!!

    [/quote]
    I said it helps but isn't a game changer. Height and pace will help a striker but isn't the be all and end all.
    [/quote]

    *faceplam*

    Spidey, why can't you just admit you've talked a lot of absolute nonesense in this thread and be done with it. You fucking said, and I know because I'm reading it,[size=14pt] if he were a holding midfielder I'd be concerned[/size].

    And why the fuck are you talking about strikers now? What, what the fuck are you talking about?
    [/quote]

    Okay the reason I brought up strikers because I said physique helps but isnt the be all and end all , clear? Exactly the same with holding midfielder having a slender build it isn't the end of the world if they have ability. All this is moot as aqualini is going to play as an attacking midfielder.
    What point do you want me to conceed? I'm not going change my mind in regards to physique being the being the be all and end of a holding midfielder (my main point).

    Neil the obvious choice for your argument was Makelele.

    But you are wrong.

    I think I was talking about aqualini's ability to actually hold rather than his physique as there are plenty of effective holding midfielders who aren't built. If I said I was concerned if aqualini was a holding midfielder because of his build then I hold my hands up and admit is was wrong.

    I can't wait to see this guy in the team. I can visualise what he'll bring. He looks to me like a mobile Xabi and He'll knit our play together well. He'll make our passing game better and add more flair to our general play.

    As to the 'debate' on his physique, these slender players worry me. Yossi is almost an exception in that these type of players seem to suffer from hamstings, groins, knee injuries and all sorts and lets face it, Aquilani has form. I look at him and he's not 'tough'.

    However, I think youre right in that whatever the cause of Aquilanis injury issues, it is less likely that he will get bashed quite as often playing a little further up the pitch
    [/quote]

    Who got 'bashed' more on Sunday... Masher or Torres?

    I was under the assumption that a DM is the one doing the bashing on the opposition's attacking players.
    [/quote]

    an Am plays between the defense and midfield, and there have been a whole lot of tiny number 10s.....so its reasonable to conclude that they get bashed up a little less.

    Neil's point is that as Aqui is not going to play DM, he won't be bashed up as much.

    Neil you agree to above?

    Lets stop this bitching...
    [/quote]

    Well that's like saying Lucas doesn't get bashed as much as Masher. The demand on our midfield two, in terms of workrate/teamwork, is practically the same. Both have to do their fair share of the defensive duties, while one sits and protects more and the other is given a bit more license to attack (not much it seems).

    How many times have teams forced errors by targetting Lucas? His defensive frailties have been highlighted on many occasions this season, so suggesting that one is less likely to be 'bashed' is wrong.

    In even more simplistic terms, the more attacking of the two is likely to come up more against the opposition defensive players, whereas Masher is more likely to be comfronted by attacking players (who are, by virtue of recent points on this thread, more 'lightweight), so none of this point about one being able to be significantly more lightweight than the other, really holds any water.
    [/quote]

    I was trying to paraphrase Neil's argument. This thread is all over the place like a mad cow's piss. I don't know what is going on anymore....

    He'll definitely get a run out and possibly as much as 45 minutes.

    I obviously meant pleased.

    I hope he doesn't break your heart like Alonso broke mine.

    That Spurs game at the end of last season was the worst, I knew that was it. I'm not over it yet.

    Tickets sold out for tomorrow, right?
