He looked fast last night. Something that our teams needs: explosion.

Thumbs up for the performance!

Keep it up kid!

I read thet Leo wants to convert him into a RB and I don't think it would be a bad idea since the full backs we have now are crap. I doubt he is worse than Marek when it comes to defending.

So Zambro on the left, Abate seems like a good option to me.

This shit better stop with gettin players then changing their position.
It worked once with Pirlo for 1-2 season & it failed with the rest.
U want a full back then get 1.
The kid seems promising so play him in his best position which is RM specially that he tracks back quiet well.

maybe isn't in midfield enough space for abate for his run, maybe he will have on RB much more.

I'd like to see Abate at RB. He may prove to be a valuable addition. Only concern is his aerial ability + physical strength. Zambro cleared a few balls with his head last night.

did he play RB at torino? it seems like every time i saw them play he was further forward... i think it would be worth a try to play him at FB if we arent going to sign another FB... its probably his best chance to get into the first team and who knows it could be another sergi...

sergi and cafu were both converted midfielders... probably converted around the same age as abate is now...

zZZz said that he played pretty much in every position down the right. Right forward, midfielder and defender. Anyway, its not like Janku's been stellar in defense ... since thats who he'd be basically replacing, with Zambro moving to the left. Its worth a shot, I say. Certainly more promise than Antonini.

Speaking of Cafu ... if anyone watched the 1992 Toyota (Club World) Cup between San Paolo (not sure) and Barca, Cafu features as a right forward ... and a pretty good one at that.

Cafu's team beat Barca, much in the same way Pato's team beat them in 06. This so-called greatest team and benchmark, etc. has never won a club world cup. Now that is pathetic

Zambro was also converted from a right/left winger to a fullback by Cappelo. The ideal would be to buy a quality fullback but since that ain't gonna happen it's worth trying Abate on the right.

The point is about having a sure bet 4 the full back & the transfer window is still open.
Tryin Abate as a FB should b our last resort.

Of course ... in an ideal world we'd bring in Aly, Clichy, bosingwa, etc.. But who have we been linked with? I don't think Bale or Di Silvestri would be a massive improvement to our current fullbacks. Although I wouldn't mind either, Abate at RB doesn't seem that worse than those two names. At least try him out there. If Antonini deserves a chance there, Abate should be a starter

We will always have Abate + the mega plan 2 make him the new Cafu & gettin + gambling on a promising FB wont affect it.
Get DiS or Bale.

Of course we should get a fullback. But that doesn't rule out the possibility of Abate being a good RB. Leo should give him a shot.

obviously getting a FB and using abate elsewhere would be ideal but there's a very strong possibility that wont happen so we need to work with what we have...

no... Leo clearly signed that he doesn't need him, Oddo is a bit too picky, there are clubs like panathinaikos that want's him, maybe we should off load him to EPL or other German side..
