Lets just hope they stop dicking around and put some in the back of the net. At least Pirlo is back tomorrow. Unfortunately, Buffon isnt. :(
Though Buffon is exceptional, we can't know for sure if he would have had the presence of mind to exit the net and stop the shot (that was offsides in the first place) that Marchetti let in.
Marchetti himself didn't do anything wrong. He didn't go above and beyond his duty as a goaltender, which Buffon MIGHT have done in his stead, but he can't be blamed for the tie.
We need to put guys like Pazzini and Di Natale in the game from the start. We need Pirlo to pull of some of his fancy, perfect passes. We need Cannavaro to either shape up or get off the goddamned field.
We also need for De Rossi to move farther up the pitch. The poor bastard keeps hanging back out of sheer terror that the shit-tastic defense will fall to pieces unless he lends a hand, but we need him MORE on offense. He's got good ball control, experience, and brains, and most of the guys like Montolivo and Camoranesi and the other jerks currently further up the field than he is have NONE of those qualities. Except experience for Camoranesi, I guess, but it doesn't seem to count for jack-shit since he's simply embarassing to watch.
Having Buffon back in net would be awesome, and it would probably even serve to boos the team's confidence a bit. But he's not THAT important, considering the level of game we're currently at, and the level we want to move towards. IF and when we manage to wake the fuck up and start playing decent soccer, THEN we can start worrying about getting the world's greatest goalie back in net.
