Speaks volumes as to the quality of players available for Italy. Reminising on the 2006 team that went to Germany.

I don't even think it had anything to do with the quality of the players. Horrible coaching. No tactical identity. Daniel De Rossi's rant says it all at the end.

Ventura was a disastrous choice. Itís all on Tavecchio.

Football Italia is running a report saying Tavecchio won't be held to task. It has to do with him having managed finances really well, the introduction of VAR and the hugely improved performance of the U-21s.

I sort of see the point. Ventura had won 4 out of 5 games till the disasters against Macedonia and then Sweden. I'm not sure if firing the coach would have helped by that point.

But some really basic disasters in his play. I think Low hit upon the best method. Which is to take the best players from the best playing clubs and give them the system they're most comfortable playing in.

And here we had Insigne being played in centre midfield. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

Italy should have been a 3-4-3 or a 4-3-3 - No question. And Jorginho should have been a part of it.

I've been in mourning since the first leg tbh. It was clear they were never going to turn it around. To watch guys like Candreva, a head down, kick and rush player be given so much trust yet the best winger in the league is sitting on the bench just epitomizes Ventura's tenure.

Jorginho was another casualty, one of Napoli's best players and he's only given a chance in a do a or die.

Actually I think the talent pool is pretty good atm. Insigne, Belotti, Immobile and SES are all having amazing seasons and scoring for their clubs, yet they're not being fruitful for the NT, in the midfield and on the wings Ventura has so much talent to choose from yet he goes for Candreva and Parolo. Darmian as a WB is also a huge WTF. I mean is there seriously no one better to play the WB position than a pseudo RB who is clearly not comfortable attacking so much or using his left foot?

We could have used him this season. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sleep.gif) Shame he was such a cokehead when he was with us.
