capod2t is on a distinguished road

I am new here and glad to have found this forum - I love talking Red&Black!

I didn't see a thread on Genaro and wanted to comment on him and hopefully get some of your input as well.

First, let me say that NO ONE in the league dedicates his body more that the Pit Bull. Defensively he is a gem, however I do have some issues with him.

He defends like no one else, especially when he is dispossessed or makes a bad pass - he goes after La Palla like an animal. And he is not afraid to get dirty or physical - maybe toooooooo physical at times. Let's face it - he's a hot head and a yellow card liability all too frequently IMHO. But if I had a team, I would want him in the DM position.

What I don't understand is why he has been in a more forward position this year. What is Allegre thinking? He can't dribble. He can't shoot. He can't control the mid. He can barely pass and his crosses? You never know where they're going.

So maybe somebody here could enlighten me as to why he has been up front more, rather than holding the rear mid where he is best utilized.

Inter - a va fan c#$!
