Argentina have been dismissed as a one-man team, but that does an ignorant disservice to the contributions of Javier Mascherano. He's been absolutely superb...

I'm sure Daniel Storey doesn't decide on the headlines, but it was another of 365's writers that (lazily) simply put 'Messi' under 'why they'll win it', in Football365's Guide To The Final Eight piece? ( Is it Watson then that we're referring to as 'bloody foolish'?

"He made more passes per game in the group stage than Andrea Pirlo" --------- Not a valid comparison, I wouldn't say. Mascherano's role is to win the ball and play it to players like Pirlo, who is almost certainly playing balls over a longer distance, and that carry a significantly increased risk to them as well. Would be nice to see ovber what distances those balls are played and into which areas as well.

I'm not giving out about the article, but the criticism of Argentina at the world cup is, from my reading of things, more about the fact that any one of Higuain, De Maria, Aguero, Lavezzi etc should be potential match winners yet Messi has been the one who delivers when it matters, the rest seem to defer to him instead of imposing themselves (in fairness, Aguero is injured but didn't do a whole lot before that, De maria has been okay in flashes and Higuain scored a nice finish against Belgium). Higuain's goal still came from Messi setting things up, a mishit pass from De Maria falling into Higuain's path, and a good finish. Argentina's defending against Belgium was their best performance, in that regard, I've seen at the tournament.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
