Ace wrote:Toldo seriously injured?? when?? J.Cesar came to Inter to be the first choice, he was loaned to Chievo because of burocratic problems but next season he became the first choice just because Mancini preferred him to Toldo...this is what wikipedia says:
"until the summer of 2005, when Brazilian keeper Júlio César relegated Toldo to the bench after Toldo elected to sit out Inter's summer friendly match tour of England."
About Inter defence, I don't think Inter have a perfect defence, Samuel and Chivu (and I wish Lucio) can be good but Cordoba, Burdisso and Rivas make a lot of mistake. To judge Julio Cesar take a look at Inter-Manchester match of some months ago. First match ended 0-0 just because of Julio Cesar , in second match ended 0-2 because of defence mistakes, but Julio saved a lot of goals.
If someday Ochoa will go in Europe, we will surely upgrade his stats, but just because it's harder to play in PL or Liga or Serie A, than Mexican League....It's harder to save a goal from Rooney/Ibra/Eto'o or a mexican striker?
Was not Toldo recent years many times injured?
Anyway for me is Julio Cesar only a good gk noting near to world class.
I would not really say its harder to make saves VS Rooney,Zlatan or Eto`o then the strikers in Mexican league strikers. Mexican league is really offensive and there is more shots to the box especially then in Italian league. It depends in which team u play and which defence ur team got.
But just cause Ochoa plays in Mexican league dont means Julio Cesar or any other gks who plays in European giants is better. As i think in many great European teams the gks are just avarage.
