I'm wondering if Zebina weren't Bianconeri, would have Juventini praised him for being a good fullback? Or just we're eager to hear some good news after the drought we've been living in since the Calciopoli.

Why do we need Zebina? As a right back, we got Grygera and Salihamdizic who are both way better than him. As a centre back, he is solid and quick, but he is as well so clumsy and his positioning sucks. And don't tell me please that we have to respect him for being one of the players who committed to the club after its demotion. I can't forget that he was dying to follow his only master to Madrid but we blocked such a transfer. Then, he refused to play and we all know what was the reaction of the fans.

Yet, I'm not against extending his contract, at least he is better than nothing.

Jonathan King of Defenders Zebina
Now, I've just realised how serious you're. :D ;)


ahm, Salihamidzic is not a right back! he can play there...but def not better then zebina
Mate, Salihamdizic can play as a right back as well as a right midfielder. Yes, Zebina is better defensively, but defending isn't the only role of a fullback. Salihamdizic dribbles and crosses better than Zebina, besides he is less clumsier. Anyways, I prefer Grygera to both of them. Taken into consideration that we've a defending left back like Chiellini, so we'll have a good balance in our backline.

ahmed, i know what you mean
Good. There is another point here. The balance in our back line will depend greatly on the performance of our future centre backs. For example if we have two competent experienced centre defenders, so one or both of our full backs can attack more, according to the match situation. On the other hand, if we've two average or slightly above average centre backs, Zebina as a right back would be more useful.

Salihamidzic is a midfielder, and as a defender sucks. And I wouldn't go that far and say that Grygera is way better than Zebina.

Zebina has had some good perfromances since the start of 2007. Earlier, the home crowd would whistle at him when he was subbed out. Now, when he comes off he gets much applause and respect and always acknowledges the appreciative fans. I think he is finally starting to grow up. So, good that he extended his K.

He has accepted his role as a special sub-asset, he knows he cant find any better,
we owe him one for be-ing "royal" and staying with us in B'
