And that's the thing, when he has Tacchinardi and Davids in midfield he may edge it a bit if I don't play Simeone. But once he gets the ball he would have Davids and Tacchinardi on the ball and Pirlo pressed by Zidane and/or Forlán, how good is his build up?
When I get the ball I will have Scholes, Seedorf or Luis Enrique on the ball with either Zidane or Forlán roaming freely.
If it's Davids and Tacchinardi he'll certainly have more ball-winning ability than that three, but less scope to do much with it. There's a decision to be made about starting Valeron or Larsson. Rivaldo and Valeron might be better to beef up the creative aspects of the midfield.
