World Cup Group B Preview: World Cup Buzz Podcast

wc buzz2 World Cup Group B Preview: World Cup Buzz Podcast

Argentina’s turbulent qualifying ride is over, and now they look to be one of the stronger teams at the World Cup. To look at the Albiceleste and their group – which includes Greece, Nigeria, and South Korea – I was joined by Laurence McKenna and Kartik Kishnaiyer to break down each squad and match and determine the two teams best situated to survive Group B. Along the way, we hear views from Tim Vickery, Andy Brassell, Jonathan Wilson and Simon Hill.

Tomorrow, we look at perhaps the deepest group of the tournament, Group D, before turning our attention to Group C on Wednesday.

    ~Mikel’s injury is not a huge deal{for cm/dm:etuhu,ayila,kaita ; cm:lukman}
    lukman is much more dynamic then mikel

  2. flying_eagle says:

    i really don’t understand why pundits who do not watch other Nigerian players overate mikel.

    • Richard says:

      Thanks for the feedback, but I don’t understand why you would assume disagreement tantamount to ignorance. Lukman’s clearly a good prospect, but three caps in two years hardly a solution makes. There is a reason he was cut from the Cup of Nations squad. I don’t think it’s beyond possible to think that the Monaco-man may not be up to the task.

      • flying_eagle says:

        There is a reason Shabiu Amodu the man who cut him from the AFCON squad is no longer coaching for a reason.

        I hope i was not being too critical on the podcast. i greatly appreciate the work you guys at epltalk and worldcupbuzz put in.

        • Richard says:

          Thanks, flying_eagle. I agree that Amodu, while he has given a lot to Nigeria (many times) was not the man for the job anymore.

  3. flying_eagle says:

    i do agree with a lack of creativity
    we are masquerading strikers as wingers

  4. flying_eagle says:

    lack of creativity midfield can be fixed in 4-3-3
    options
    2 midfielders(Etuhu,Kaita) sub;Ayila
    1 central midfielder(Lukman)
    2 wingers/forward right:Obasi,kalu uche left:Nsofor,Osaze)
    1 center forward:Martins,Yakubu,Brown

    peter utaka and kanu are just cheer leaders

  5. 2 midfielders(Etuhu,Kaita) sub;Ayila
    1 central midfielder(Lukman)
    2 wingers/forward right:Obasi,kalu uche left:Nsofor,Osaze)
    1 center forward:Martins,Yakubu,Brown
