Are Argentina the ugliest team in the tournament?

Not a looker amongst them

"Ponderous" says Shearer. Well, you'd know all about that Alan.

Are Argentina even playing with a midfield?

Think that's the main problem here. The 5 defenders just isn't working at all.

Poor, poor performance so far from Argentina. Bosnia did well defensively. Both teams need to do better with possession. Pretty much no forward thrust from Argentina, their best moment (other than the goal) came from Messi dribbling forward but there was only one player in support. Slow and laboured from there.

Poor half. Messi is dropping too deep, and when he gets on the ball isn't doing well.

Is Lawro clinically depressed? It's either that or he despises football.

They need some more Maradona tactical 'defenders don't cross the half way line' :brock:

Pretty boring first half, lucky Argentina they scored so early.

Don't know if this is how Bosnia usually play, with Misimovic the most advanced midfielder, but Pjanic is too deep IMO. He's great for Roma when he can get further forward, but he's not really done that this half. Too far away from the box to make a difference. Could do with finding a way to get him further up the pitch, particularly as they seem to lack ideas with the ball in the final third.

Have you ever played Grand Theft Auto?

That's just plain wrong.

Shame we were so scared and nervous at the start. The positive thing is we've calmed a bit and regouped ourselves. We still lack movement in attack. Here's hoping we can score in the second half.

Argentina's midfield is ****. Messi having to drop so deep to get involved and then he's just running into a crowd of Bosnians.

I have the feeling Bosnia will continue to play like this, get a few chances but fail to score and they'll get tired around the 70th minute. Some Argentinian player will receive the ball after a fluke long ball and score the 2-0 while cheekily pointing at the name of his shirt.

Argentina can just sit back and play on the counter and wait for more Messi cleverness. He just needs one more moment.

Poor game. No shocking Mascherano fouls either.

I'm liking Bosnia so far, coach must be debating whether to bring on another striker / attacking midfielder - but this could open up possibilities for the Argies.

I don't want to bloody hear about Blind and De Jong's press conference.

They'll analyze the game in a bit, ffs. They do this every day - quick Dutch item and then go on to the match at hand.

Too many defenders. Put Higuain on and we'll have a fun match.

Yeah, we have 4 and they have 5.

Argentina have been quite average. Bosnia are, as expected, a good side.

they need a midfielder, not another striker.

Messi is constantly walking as well, looks a bit desinterested like he did at Barcelona the last couple of weeks/months. Wouldn't surprise me if he's depressed or something like that, he just isn't himself.
