QUOTE (Fillipo Simone @ Oct 26 2021, 10:12 PM) *
But worst game of the season? Oh come on man, it's a classic 1-0 game Juve for example just to do all the time during their heyday. No, Porto was perhaps the worst so far. Bologna also goes in as a contender.

Han I do not feel your way about Tatarusanu. Saving Sanabria's strike wasn't that hard, while his reactions and positioning leaves me terrified almost every time. He's a terrible, terrible second choice keeper.


Juve never won games 1-0 by being squashed in their own half. We displayed the mentality of a Serie B team for the most part. So yes, it was the worst game of the season in Serie A thus far.

Agreed about Tatarusanu.

Btw, we sh!t on him a lot but Tata came up big on that Sanabria chance. I'm getting great vibes off this team right now. I don't want to get excited but we're pulling rabbits out of the hat in each game even when we're not playing well.

Our best start since the 1950s. Praying that we're on the path to 19


I'm not. These last 3-4 games have shown a very ugly side of this team. The next week will be crucial. Roma-Porto-Inter, need a top team to play them. If we play like we've been playing g recently we'll lose all three.

1-0 FT

I hope us playing like this was a choice by Pioli to preserve energies, or fatigue, because it was unbearable to watch.

Terrible first half. We lack everything from from advanced midfield onwards. Zero ideas, zero creativity.

Lucky to be one up.

Brahim negative to Covid.

Hopefully we'll him for Roma alongside Rebic.

Good. The comment by Pioli tells you all. The mere fact that he has the need to state that Mirante (a semi-retired keeper) still isn't in form and therefore the "growing" Tatarusanu will start means he's not blind and will consider starting Antonio as soon as he regains form.


I believe it was the interviewer who might have brought up Mirante.

Probable line-up vs Torino: Tatarusanu; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Ballo-Toure; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Leao; Giroud.

Well, not to bust your balls or anything, but fresh out of today's press conference:

QUOTE
Pioli on Tatarusanu
"He is growing, he has played little but he is making good performances. Mirante is a little behind in condition, tomorrow will play Tatarusanu"


Also:

QUOTE
Pioli on Tonali or Kessie as AM
At the beginning of the game no, because we have Krunic and Maldini who know how to play in that role. It is important to have all 4 CMs available.


Enough with Krunic! Can't believe we're back to this. We had an entire summer to fix the AM problem and we're still playing fucking Krunic there. A useless, useless player who does nothing and offers nothing!

And I'm even sicker of those fans who say "Oh, but he provides equilibrium". What equilibrium??? The one who provides equilibrium is Brahim, someone who tracks back a lot, pressures the opponent like crazy, steals balls, initiates counter attacks etc. Krunic is just a bowling pin, a waste of space. We're playing with 10 men with him on the pitch. Please just play Maldini at this point...

Rumors of a Belotti/Pobega swap in January. At this point, I would even ask for cash for Pobega in that swap. What's up with Belotti this season with Torino? He hasn't played much?


Peroneus tendon injury.

It was a foul. Dumfries made an insanely stupid tackle. It didn't change anything in the flow of the attack, but by the regulation handbook at hand it's nothing else but a foul.

Atalanta's draw means we have a 10 point cushion on 5th. All the points we're taking now will be huge in terms of CL football, especially if we go through bad spells

Atalanta 1-1 Udinese

Let's just hope Roma-Napoli and Inter-Juve also end up in draws (even though I would fancy very much a Roma win).

Buy what? What Kessie goal are you talking about?

ManUtd won on experience. Experienced and well rounded teams tend to do so. Half of the knockout games Milan won during Carletto's reign or even with Capello were such performances, decided by episodes, games were we had nothing on our opposition yet managed to hold onto the brilliance of Kaka, Pippo, Sheva, Serginho or whoever was in the right mood.

So you say the details, the real treasure of football is luck and episodes? This you call details? Man, I really don't follow you. I acknowledge all your interpretations. But in the end, you tend to choose one episode and use it as a pars pro toto argument, which is false. Milan got robbed by Cakir, there's not denial there. But this is something you cannot influence, this goes down to what you say - luck. But could have Kessie used his brain and avoid fouling with already a yellow card on his shoulders? Could Milan have defended like Bologna against us for the better part of the game and not like some shaky scared bunch of players who stopped doing anything but defending their box? Yes. More could have been done. Experience is what we needed. The botttom line to this CL campaign will be "experience needed, experience gained" and not "we should have won bot got robbed every time".


This was my initial comment after the Porto game:

QUOTE (X-Offender @ Oct 19 2021, 10:01 PM) *
Yeah, it's clear as day we're just out of our depth in this competition. As long as Maldini will continue with his string of cheap signings we'll always be out of our depth.


I AM acknowledging everything you say. That this team is not ready for the Champions League just yet. I'm not pointing my finger at episodes and luck as the main reason why we have zero points.

I am claiming however that they are part of the issue. That's it. Tough group, injuries, bad refereeing, these are all factors that cannot simply be ignored. Greece won the Euros in 2004 because everything went their way, not because they had a great and experienced team.

Football is not an exact science, but an amalgamation of many, many factors. That's why the strongest team doesn't always win.

QUOTE (han2503 @ Oct 24 2021, 12:08 PM) *
Some good news today

Kessie, Pellegri and Theo all trained with the rest of the team today

Hopefully we'll have Rebic as well for Toro. Fingers crossed


I read Rebic didn't train with the team today, and is in doubt for Toro.

If Rebic becomes available, we need to play him behind Giroud. Otherwise play Tonali or Bennacer as AM. Enough with Krunic!

Hopefully Brahim gets negative as well soon.

After Torino on Tuesday we have Roma away, Porto at home and Inter at home. We really need to get back as many players as possible. Rebic, Theo and Brahim in primis.

Leao invisible in the second half against Porto, Leao invisible in the second half against Bologna as well. This guy completely switches off after a certain moment, it's ridiculous.

One last point. We absolutely have to go out and buy an attacking player in January. Not getting Faivre was a huge mistake on management's part. He's absolutely balling atm in League 1. The asking price is only going to increase now all this because we cheaped out for a few mill


We need a striker as well. Ibra is trash, Giroud is mediocre, Pellegri is not even worth commenting. Right flank is even worse with Saelemediocre and Castillejo. Hopefully Messias gets back for good.

Shameful performance. Nothing more to add. Alright first half, disastrous second half. If we didn't have those two extra men we would have never won this.

Attitude was the biggest problem tonight. A focus team would have never conceded those two goals, and it wouldn't have had such difficulty in securing the win. But the sheer mediocrity in some of our players is too great to ignore.
