can't believe what i'm hearing... this the same Chivu was assigned to man-mark T. Rocchi in vs Lazio in the Coppa? man has an attention span of a goldfish (note he doesn't have marking*). Cordoba is just unlucky with his height and weight and disadvantage, otherwise he monster defender.
now for the formation, I suggest we give Eto'o and Milito forward (up) and outside (right for Milito, and left for Eto'o) to represent their off the ball movement. I'm not certain JZ will be LB for long (he wasn't vs Milan) especially with both Santon and Chivu available. Its impossible to figure out the midfield with Cambiasso out for 4/5 months. And seeing how Mou throw on Sneijder immediately after he signed with us, I'm certain he should start in place of Stanko. And I guess bench Muntari, put Motta in LCMF, Stanko/Zanetti in RCMF, Cambiasso/Stanko in DMF, and Chivu/Zanetti at LSB. its the best we can do for now.
