Where is Argentina’s Long-Term Plan?
We all know that Spain is the reference. To reach historical success between 2008 and 2012, they didn’t fall asleep on Barca’s wonderful midfield. Qualitatively, Del Bosque managed his group of players perfectly, even when his boys were arguing eachother in the clasico, and called the best. Quantitatively, it was excellent.
82% of the players used at Euro 2012 were there at WC 2010 and 61% were already present in 2008 with Aragones, the previous coach.
At Copa 2007, only 61% of the players called in 2006 were kept by Basile. Yes, we junked in 1 year what Spain ignored in 4.
At WC 2010, only 30% of the players called in 2007 were named by Maradona. Señor Pekerman said that the second objective of WC 2006 was to prepare WC 2010. Diego’s answer was clear: he retained only 26% of the Pekerboys.
At Copa 2011, only 52% of the players called in 2010 were selected by Batista.
Against Paraguay with Sabella, only 43% of the players called were there just one year ago.
These are facts. Of course, when you fail you tend to changes things. But Spain doesn’t change their elements all the time… and they don’t fail.
Do you think we can make it by being short-term minded?
