    Fernandez has impressed in the last few minutes...covering up for some bad play. Both CBs have been pretty good.

    For those of you who have watched Sosa more than I have, what's his natural position? What are his best attributes?
    By the by, I also like what Fernandez brings in the air on dead balls.

    Fernandez has impressed for sure. Sosa is mainly a RM or RW but does neither effectively.

    Remember this date folks as the one and only day Sosa contributed to the NT.

    To be honest, I think his performance in the 2nd half of the Colombia game was his best contribution. He is still sucks, though.

    Trying to chip the keeper. He usually does that a lot better though.

    You just need to criticize him a bit more during games...That seemed to work this time.

    Congrats on the victory. Nice to see good crisp passing once again.

    Positives: Really good play by Fernandez, to a lesser extent by Garay. Magical at times up front, though I doubt that approach would be successful in the long run.

    Not so goods: The midfield didn't work out so well. Meh performance by Gago, and Masch got worse as the match progressed.

    Bad: Real discouraging play by Zaba...and Clemente almost invisible. I would be really interested to know what the directives from Sabella were for those two guys and Gago. Neither fullback joined in on the attack as much as I would like/expect.

    lol Sosa was messing everything he touched but I ll take his assist to di maria and shut up a bit. How the hell was that not a penalty on kun ?? He is not a diver and had no reason to give up on the ball wtf ?

    Someone tell our midfield to stop passing the ball backward, I swear 80% of those passes end up in turnovers.

    Even though I missed the first 3 goals, as I watched it seemed like something was a bit off. But lets hope Sabella will figure it out as time goes on. I doubt he would be content with just this. But if Messi wants to shine, he needs Kun and Pipita with him to give him freedom.

    I thought Gago was solid today, Masche not so much. Zaba/Clemente, no comment. Garay is playing to his potential, think he will be solid. Fernandez was good as you pointed out. Overall, we got our 3 points, top of the tables(probably will change, we have a game in hand, some teams have to play catch up). But 3 points.

    Turnovers are bad, was it like that before we scored? Because it seemed the team got sloppy in the second half.

    I'm so unimpressed with the defense. I really thought that we would do much better but its just not having. Zabaleta was a shadow of himself, Clemente the same. Gago on the other hand seems to have moved forward and can contribute. Mascherano, another player who was a shadow of himself. I'm glad that he wont play next game.

    Also the Substitution of Aguero was completely off. It really should have been DiMaria at that point and I say this even though he ended up scoring a goal afterwards.

    The team was a little less sloppy in the first half. But it wasn't that much better.
