Let's not forget that Sampdoria beat Napoli. They have a good record this season.

I want this place to keep going. It's a nice forum you have here.

I gotta say, my goodwill towards Gattuso is evaporating. I didn't have any to start, but he came in and did a really great job even though I seriously disagreed with some of his decisions....most notably how he managed Andre Silva.

But now he seems to be rather stubborn about his selections and inflexible to make the right subs in time. He's like a Goodwill version of Allegri an this point

I disagree about him being like Allegri. I think he's actually very open to making certain changes, unlike Allegri. And he's far more adventurous in his decisions

I think atm he's mostly struggling to get the right balance in the team

We all knew it wasn't going to be smooth sailing with a coach with practically no experience. But with all that being said, Rino has been pretty good imo especially considering what we were expecting initially

Samp are a pretty good team. We beat them, but what worries me about this team is that we're so inconsistent and fragile at times.

Rodriguez is slow, Borini stupid, Bakayoko indescribable.

But beyond everything...the level of mentality swings, fragility and moodiness we're constantly demonstrating is terrifying. For this alone Rino should be sacked.

January couldn't come sooner. Aside from Paqueta, we really need a Biglia replacement (Paredes or Barella) and another striker, possibly a left winger. We can't go anywhere like this.

Filippo if we sack Rino who are we going to bring in as a coach? The best name out there is Conte but he always sets his teams up to play the 3-5-2. We simply don't have the players to play that way. It will take at least until the summer transfer market to bring the players in to play that system.

I don't understand Rino's insistence on playing that way makes any sense, to be honest. We should look to bring in a player or two in the winter and ride it out with Gattuso. Give him a year to bring us to the CL. If he doesn't succeed then we go for Conte or a big name coach in the summer when we can bring the players in that the new coach wants.

The problem with Conte isn't his fixation with 3-5-2, but the fact he would hardly sign for us at this moment.

i think Getting rid of Gattuso at this point would be stupid, look, complain all you want, we're in 4th place and on the verge of qualifying from the EL group stage, that's as good as we could have hoped for when we started the season.

We had a few dips, but that's expected when your team is not stacked with stars and winners. But we've managed to right the ship quickly when we were about to start losing course. That's what's important

The current shifts and changes in the formation are coming about because of all the injuries. Now Musacchi is also out for 6 weeks so that's another huge blow, with Romagnoli and Zapata being the only available CBs for the moment

Bona is also out, Hakan and Kessie have niggling injuries that they've been carrying for weeks and Hakan got another knock on Thursday to his foot. Higuain will probably just about make it to the Juve game while Cutrone also suffered another knock to the ankle that has been troubling him since he got injured with the U-21s

So we have a lot of problems currently, Biglia also being a huge factor. We're going to lose the game against Juve tomorrow, but it's ablow we'll have to take given the circumstances and just thank our lucky stars that the international break is upon us so we can recover some of those players

All in all, I think Rino is doing a damn fine job and criticizing him won't help our situation. Conte is a pipe dream at this point, sacking Rino in the hopes of signing him doesn't make much sense since he apparently even made Madrid(!) look for someone else due to his demands
