I think that's smart of Tarpishev. That's how the 5th player rule can be used. He has a lot of good players between who he can choose. That's normal to leave the choice for the last moment after trainings on site etc...

I think Davydenko is right. He's just exagerating a bit (maybe a little pre-match "mind games" aspect to it...) but he's just stating facts and personal opinions. I still think that would be wise of Forget to make his guys read this though and help make them hungry (and angry...)...
