Also, does anyone else prefer young and unknown talent versus 35+ past their peak players? We need guys that won't think they are better than the team.
I think any real fan of the team prefers young unknown talent to quickly fading old stars. However, Joey is trying to solidify the fanbase and brining in "names" will do just that.. for a while! Of course, the "names" won't keep butts in the seat if they don't win games. That's where Joey and NDS might make their biggest mistake: thinking those guys can put us over the top. They are nice pieces to have, but we also need solid YOUNGER talent that will make us win.

"Names" are great on a marquee, but they don't bring you championships, talent does. These guys aren't finished, but they aren't at a level that can make them win us championships by themselves. We have talent to surround them, but we need some more, especially on the wing. One might argue that we are fine on defense with Camara, Rivas, Ferrari, Valentin, Brovsky and Iapichino next to Nesta and on offense with Wenger next to Di Vaio (and maybe Toni), but we absolutely need wingers that can create opportunities for our strikers. Felipe can create opportunities, but if he is the only playmaking option, other teams will focus on him just like they did when we played a 4-4-2 and take him away. He needs help.
