2-2 FT

Shocking. I realise that both their goals were lucky, but to be held at a tie against the worst side of the league with one man up for 60 minutes is absolutely appalling.

It's curious, you smear other players for the same thing but suggest they're just rubbish, but in his case you blame his team mates?


Cos I know exactly how good every single one of our players is.

So, Juve got Arthur for Pjanic. Excellent deal I must say. No idea what they were thinking at Barca.

Also, Inter seems to have almost signed Hakimi from Dortmund for around 40M.

Man, I hate it how now Juve and Inter seem to spend large sums at ease nowadays while we keep scraping for unknown youngsters and cheap options.

Latest names we've been linked with have been T. Silva (who would come for free, but 35 yo), Dumfries RB from PSV, Szoboszlai MF from Salzburg, and Jovic CF from Madrid.

Media has also dropped some unknown names mainly linked with Ragnick's arrival.

The Bennacer thing is all I've ever seen. It's why I don't rate him.


Yes, I know. But I think he's very good in that position. However, if your team doesn't support you, then it's difficult to excel for a player of his type. He needs movement and intelligent players around him, not lazyass morons.

A few remarks about some players.

Bennacer - Overall neat performance but I think he suffers a lot from having a bunch of morons around him, which makes him kind of insecure when playing with the ball.

Kessie - Remember when we used to call Rino the least technically gifted player in Ancelotti's Milan? Kessie makes him look like Xavi in comparison. We need to get rid of this guy ASAP. He's just a younger version of Muntari.

Castillejo - I appreciate sometimes his effort, but the guy is just mediocre. He can't be starting games for us.

Calhanoglu - Got on my nerves today. Looked very half-arsed, and wasted a lot of good counterattacks. Sometimes he performs decently like against Lecce, sometimes he plays like belongs in a Serie B team. Undependable.

Rebic - Really like this guy. Not just for the effort, but he also tries difficult things very often and doesn't limit himself to the simple pass. Plus I think he's pretty good with the ball. And he's scoring, a lot.

Leao - Pure garbage. He looks like he's playing street football with his friends every time he comes in. He has very shaky balance and looks like he's made of paper. Doesn't feel the stakes of the game. Niang 2.0.

Second half was better, but I think it was mostly because Roma kind of shut down and let us play. Both goals were kind of fortuitous, we didn't really create that much or play any decent football.

Whether we get that EL spot or not, this season is already over. We need Pioli to leave, and hope that Ragnick has some semblance of an idea of how to make this team play football. And hopefully we make a few decent signings as well.

Cos as we are right now, it's no different from any season of the last 7-8 years.

Such a lazy performance. You can clearly tell the players don't give a f*ck.

What's more evident is how nobody really takes initiative. They all resort to the simple solution which requires less effort. Don't know if it's just laziness or lack of quality. Probably both.

Waaaaaait. You really didn't know you can't be offside in your own half?!

Haha (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Same rule also points out you can't be offside from a throw in. From anywhere on the pitch.


Yeah, I knew about the throw in cos I've seen that many times during games. But honestly I think this is the first time I've seen a counterattack from a long ball starting from your own half while being way ahead of the last defender.

QUOTE (Danny @ Jun 23 2020, 06:39 AM) *
It wasn't used because it was offside. If you're meaning Lecce's disallowed goal.

The point of VAR is the assistent refs review anything contentious and significant, and if they believe the ref's initial call is wrong, or in doubt, they tell him he has the option to review it.

If he gets the signal his call was right, no need to review.


I think he was referring to Lecce's penalty.

I think I just discovered a new rule in football I wasn't aware of. The offside rule is not valid in your own half (referring to Rebic's goal). Can't believe in 20 years of watching this game I never came across it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

That, or I just didn't pay enough attention to it.

What an underwhelming game. Lecce were absolutely terrible yet we looked bad as well despite winning 4-1.

I don't know man, sometimes our players look like absolute amateurs. The mistakes they make are mind boggling.

And now penalty. Gabbia with a lame foul. Great idea was send Caldara away, wasn't it? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

Well, we've known that since December. It's the reason why Boban left. Because Gazidis signed him without consulting neither him nor Maldini.

I really don't know him. I only know that for the last season he was employed by Red Bull as head of sport.

Our players are simply dumb.

Conti raising his elbow like that.

Rebic with an idiotic karate kick.

Calabria stupid by default.

Pretty sure there's only been one 30M offer from PSG? The 50M thing is his release clause. Which no one has met?

I mean fair enough, clearly there's interest, both Manchester clubs and PSG. Apparently.

Ah good to be arguing about this sh*t again (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)


Yeah sorry, 50M was the release clause.

Interesting though you omit Bennacer. 50M offers from City and PSG recently, many outlets calling him the biggest revelation of our season and one of our best players. Which I wholeheartedly agree. Said it from day one, it was a great signing. Hopefully we don't sell him.

I see this place is as lively as always.

League starts next week, tomorrow Juve-Milan for the Coppa semi-final second leg.

Donnarumma
Conti - Kjaer - Romagnoli - Calabria
Kessie - Bennacer
Paqueta - Calhanoglu - Bonaventura
Rebic

Here's a question: has anyone dared re-watching the 2005 CL final? I only saw once the extended highlights. Still to this day I think it is the weirdest, and most unfair final win by any team. Dominating for 112 minutes, wasting so many scoring opportunities, and yet get punished by a 6-minute blackout.

Sheva's 120th minute miss transcends the logic of physics.

I swear, if we hadn't attained our revenge in 2007 that final would have haunted me for life.

No it's not, not strictly. There's a reason Italy's struggling more than any other nation - you have the most number of elderly in Europe - by quite a distance. This is just a horrible flu bug killing the vulnerable as any does - the simple difference here is there's no vaccine. Yet.
§

That's the media using this bug for attention, for traffic to fund their sponsors and adverts.

No one cares when 200 Syrians get blown up or 50 Palestinians die or 60 Isralis - so the news doesn't bother with those stories.

But they do care when there's an apparent new superbug killing folk close to home in Europe and there's no 'cure'. So that's a goldmine for news outlets. It wouldn't even have made the news in Europe had it not been for our people being in Wuhan and needing to be brought home.

All about profit and picking and choosing what stories are worth attention.

And it leads to panic buying. And panic reactions. The sooner this f*cking story fades and people can calm down the better.

I mean we even had our Prime Minister showing folk how to wash their hands. As if that stops you getting the flu. And the masks too, they're useless.

All of these things only stop the infected spreading it further, and by the time you're diagnosed, you already have.


I know people who work in hospitals in Milan. They say the media don't tell the full story. This is much worse than what the general public is aware of. There's a huge number of youngsters in their 20s who have severe pneumonia and need respirators. It's not just the elderly.

WHO just declared it a pandemic, the deaths in Italy only for today 12 March were 196. The prime minister issued a decree that closes everything, and I mean everything in the whole country. Only pharmacies and supermarkets remain open. It's going to be a struggle.
