    Yup, better than Messi internationally. He's a guy nobody can hate no matter who you support.

    I think rooney has a similiar record as messi for their respective coutries, about 35 goals in 80ish appearances. If people think rooney under performs for England imagine what the argentines think of messi- although i think he is improving (probably because Maradona has gone along with the chaos that surrounds him).

    Messi doesn't play as an out and out striker with Argentina his job is to link that midfield and Attack.

    Hes such a poacher, probably has one of the best international records in world football. Cant think of any strikers who score more than 2 in every 3 games for their countries.
    Incredible really. Neymar's had a decent start too, to his international career.

    Exactly Argentina have too many strikers at their disposal so Mess I has to play like a CAM.

    Exactly, they have Higuain, Aguero and Tevez as strikers. They also have lavezzi and Di Maria who can play either side of the strikers.

    Such a good problem to have haha. Unless Maradona is your coach then you play a 1-4-5 :ahee:

    Always reminds me of what me and my housemates used to do in FIFA. When one of us was Argentina, we tended to play with no real defenders and shift the stronger players like Tevez as center backs and the odd wide player as a full back. It worked well tbh.

    A friend of mine used to play Henry as a wing back.

    He was rubbish for stopping attacks, but get the ball to him on a counter and it was devastating.

    So he would be on around 85k a week. So, he would be on the standard tiered contract, where lots of players are on around 90k a week on wages.

    That's all well and good convincing his father but we're trying to convince Thiago.

    Also, Barcelona are holding contract talks with Thiago today and I fear that they may convince him to stay with guaranteed greater playing time next season.

    As Malevolent said, there is nothing they can really tell him anyway. They knew they had the release clause in place, and still let it expire in a season where they walked the league. He didn't get the games at the end of the season when the matches counted for nothing, and even preferring the option of Xavi on painkillers to Thiago. If they can't deliver game time under those circumstances how they can do so next season I don't know. Pressure is going to be on pushing for the CL, another front spot is taken by Neymar meaning Fabregas or Iniesta in the front 3 is going to be harder. Basically there is no logical way he would be getting more game time next season than last bar injuries. Even if Villanova promises more time, he'll go back on his word if things get tight.

    At United, he's going to be the centrepiece of the midfield, as Silva, Fabgregas, Mata, and Cazorla are showing, with the right talent and exposure you can still get into the spain squad outside Madrid or Barca. I can't see a logical reason why he wouldn't move. Hopefully the fact his Dad seems involved, and is Brazillian will negate the Barca DNA bull**** line from being effective.
