Tevez has to be on the first team or else.....

Tevez is still waiting to know his status with MANU. It's not enough that he helped them win last years Premiership & Champions league. It is as if Fergie is trying to purposely depress his worth by keeping him on the reserve list. Fortunately for Tevez, this will not work since he always creates opportunities every second he’s on the field. Plus he has already proven himself on all the teams (Boca Juniors, Corinthians, West Ham, MANU) he has played for. I hope where ever he ends they just let him do his thing and let him play his heart out.

Tevez's Major Titles
Team - Cup Title
Boca Juniors - Copa Libertadores - 2003
Boca Juniors - Copa Intercontinental - 2003
Boca Juniors - Argentine Apertura - 2003
Boca Juniors - Copa Sudamericana - 2004
National Team - Athens Olympic Gold - 2004
Corinthians - Campeonato Brasileiro - 2005
Manchester United - Premiership - 2008
Manchester United - Champions League - 2008

Maradona - Hail to the Chief

Argentina 2 - France 0

Maradona is off to an awesome start as head coach. The team was off to a shakey start with unusually low ball possesion but after the sniper shot by Jonás Gutiérrez (23) the team managed to settle down. Messi did his thing with his magical abilities and Carlos Tevez had an immidiate impact after he subed for Aguero setting up Messi for his awesome goal. When Maxi Rodriguez & El Kun Aguero came off the field to be subed Maradona kissed them as a father would - So inspirational. I think Maradona is going to keep tweaking his formula but the main cast is set. However, Riquelme and maybe Veron will definitley get their chance. There is also exciting talent like Ezequiel Lavezzi and German Denis that need to get their shot. I also can't leave out the new goalie Juan Carrizo. He was a solid rock with magnets as hands.

What an exiting time to be an Argentine Soccer Fan...........
