Geezzz, I forgot. What did Paulo do yesterday??
OK. If Guy's going to change his selection, it's fine. I guess all the FFT members and most of the French population (and of course, our MTF members
) are forcing him to get rid of Paulo right now
But still, yesterday loss didn't increase a chance to choke in Paulo because he has always had that potential anyway! And Guy knows that! No offense to other guys, but even with a choking potential, Paulo is still a risk worth taken.
It's a risk with Paulo because you don't really know how it's going to turn out. He might win like those ties against Sweden or Moya or he might lose badly.
From my bias point of view, Paulo deserves a chance to play this tie.
As much as I hate him for losing such match, it kills me to know that there were so many people who expected or even rooting for him to fail. He deserves better than that...
It's just that we ask why he has no confidence in himself. But to be fair to Paulo, no one really has confidence in him neither. And I have no idea how sucks that must feel when no one believes in you and eventually he has to doubt himself. This is not an excuse but it's simple as that.
Maybe Guy should take Paulo off the team. If that's what everyone wants, why not? I guess Paulo is fine by that (I certainly do). It's better than getting trash by the fans, the medias and some team members
What's good in bringing him and expecting him to lose/choke?
He did this on purpose. Just to give Russia a wrong impression. It's a strategy
