Feel like the team has played better with the pressure off.

It's whether it can handle it when it starts to mean something.


True that.

Yet I strongly believe the team has found the right mix and core, which is ready to be tested in a packed stadium.

Now it is yet to be seen if a packed stadium is possible next month when Serie A resumes.

I hope this special situation wasn't the key factor in our successful campaign with Pioli.

But I do fear it had a lasting impact. Not only the fact that we played with nothing to lose and no pressure at all. We played without fans and I think this also helped.

Such great optimism.

I think the team has found its footing. It has developed a system, an identity, the players know what to do. They're not clueless chicken running around aimlessly anymore. They want to prove themselves. You don't get wins against Roma, Lazio and Juventus, and draws against Napoli and Atalanta just out of circumstance.

I'm optimistic. I think with the right signings we can strengthen our side even further and finally challenge for those top spots.

I agree.

I certainly think that an element of what Danny et al are saying has been a factor, as the fans were getting on their backs a lot in these past few years, understandable but imo it was always a mistake by the curva to go that way with such a young team.

But the way we've played these games imo has more to do with finding the right balance and system. We were already seeing a bit of that before the stop, for example in the Coppa game against Juve at home I thought we played immensely that night. I really do think Pioli has found a way to get this team working.

What matters most now is that Paolo finds the right players to upgrade the positions we were weak in this season. And I am really relieved as well that we're not going to be starting from zero again this coming season. Sticking with Pioli was the right call and will give us some much needed continuity
