Anyways, we should beat Bolivia and I'm expecting a loss vs Ecuador. It would be nice to gather the 6 points for once, but I doubt it.

Hopefully Paolo Guerrero makes it back in time for the game in Quito. Got injured for Flamengo the other day.

Instead of creating a thread for each match day just create one thread for all the remaining qualifiers from every confederation  expect Europe

Our squad should be up today or tomorrow. Jefferson Farfan is supposedly coming back, which I hope is just whitesmoke. He's had too many chances and his ego will just disrupt what is a very good dressing room.

If Ruidiaz can't make it vs Bolivia, then let it be Irven Avila. Not the best player but against Bolivia he's good enough.

In seriousness, and this is a general reply and not to Teso as I can't take him seriously, but I can see a 3-5 goals to 0 win for us. It's a bit confident especially given how much of shithouses they are, but with our attacking game I can see our match being similar to theirs in Venezuela. 

I just don't want Farfán to be called up. Aside from his possible ego, he's shite these days.

Leao Butron rumoured to not be called up, which will upset a lot of people. I'm not. I'm sure the man isn't even bothered anymore. He's over 40 years old, he's been brilliant but I still prefer Pedro Gallese.

Although I'd like Alejandro Duarte to get called up over Caceda. Carlos Caceda might play for my club Universitario but I really don't rate him all that much.

 

Cueva just got a last minute injury. If he's out for these 2 games, I think Hurtado should step in again. As I said in the other thread, he's been great for La Blanquiroja everytime he's played, so there's really no risk in putting him on. The driver for his team in Portugal and rips it up over there.

Chile can lose points away to Bolivia as it is always difficult to beat Bolivia at home.

Ecuador was terrific at the start of the qualifiers, they won four out four opening games and looking at the table right now they have won just one game after that.

6 of their regulars are going to be missing the game against us due to lack of playing time at their clubs. Don't know if thats a good or a bad thing as they have been playing over better players like Ramirez and Cazares who should be starting.

The only one I'm terrified of in our game though is Antonio Valencia. No idea how he plays for Manchester United, but he's a terrific player for Ecuador.

Cueva back to training today, good news. He'll be around for the games.

Now to see if Paolo makes it back in time for Ecuador.

Despite his character, I'd like to see how Icardi would do with Dybala and Messi.

Peru squad for the qualifiers.

I really didn't want to see Farfan, but he's here. He better take this chance as if he messes it up, he won't get another one. Bulos I'm not sure what he's doing there. Very limited player who works in a good system but he should only be put on if the game is finished. Wilder Cartagena the other new one.

Four games left, and Argentina are only two points safe.  Interesting times...

Peru probably need 10 points from their run-in to feel safe about their odds.  I'm not sure if that's possible, though.

I mean, if we had better away fixtures then yes it would have been possible, but Ecuador and Argentina away are just too much for us. No matter how well we are playing right now its a bit much. We shot ourselves in the foot by drawing Argentina 2-2 in a game where we dominated. 

I don't think we will qualify but I think we will finish 6th and get 7 points and then if Gareca stays we'll qualify for 2022. We may have started off terribly, but its been extremely promising after the Copa America Centenario.

What do you call the last 16 matches?

Let me guess, a lucky run.

We'll qualify for 2022 but Gareca MUST stay.

Also on Mildem backing you up, I'm sure he would. Why don't you log out and go laugh with him instead of doing it here? I'm sure it would be good fun. 

AFF is the only forum where people defend you after all, and the only one where you can be defended as the majority on there are about as bad as you.

 

And just a note, I just want you to know that no one cares about your views on Peru because they are completely delusional and everyone knows it. People want to listen to me, not you. They also don't care about some shit I said in the past, so you're wasting your efforts.

Good point. Someone who thinks Mexico, Costa Rica and USA would top CONMEBOL is delusional.

Mexico would finish 9th or 8th in CONMEBOL. 

Shock horror, Teso disappeared. Its only a matter of time before he shows up and asks me to leave him alone, very ironically.

Banning him from here will be the greatest thing that's happened in forum history.

So Miguel Araujo has been injured. Who does Gareca call up? Callens? NOOOOO Luis Abram. 

Gareca needs to sign a new contract immediately, but even some of his decisions are questionable. Why call up someone who is having a horrid season in the Peruvian league over a player who has started every game in the MLS for New York City and having a good season... I'd even take Benincasa over Luis Abram.

The MLS.... all someone has to do is look at the concacaf champion's league to see the level of that league... ffs, even teams from costa Rica make it farther then mls teams. im ready to see its level go up cause it gets boring seeing two mexican teams in the final every time. but then again, the peruvian ametaur league is not any better so gareca doesnt have many options. 

I can name 5 players in the Peruvian league that are better options than Abram... probably even more but 5 that come to mind.

Benincasa, Balta, S. Lojas, M. Quina, Garces

Not the best 5 players in the world but they are better than Luis Abram, who is shocking.

Although your comment is ironic because it seems the top Mexican players prefer the MLS over the Liga MX...

(although I agree its inferior to the Liga MX in every way)

Luis Suarez out for Uruguay: Great news for Peru. I can see them losing vs Argentina now and possibly vs Paraguay.

Argentina has suffered on away fixtures with or without Messi. I still see Uruguay winning or at least getting a draw.

The USA would be 5th/6th based on recent results.  We've gotten wins vs. the bottom half, but nothing but losses vs. the top half.  It would be a 50/50 proposition for the USA to sneak into a WC.  

Mexico would also be on the bubble (American phrase).  Costa Rica would probably sit around 7th/8th.

CONMEBOL is deep at the top.  However, the bottom teams are not minnows like the bottom UEFA teams - you get no matches off.  The USA can be in a daze for a portion of WCQ and still get in with games to spare.

Icardi

Dybala------------Messi

Di Maria--------Fernandez------Banega--------Mercado

Fazio-----Mascherano----Otamendi

Massive game for Argentina midweek against Uruguay. What I would lineup given the options available.
