I didn't say 2nd place would be a sure thing, but that we'd be aiming for it.

I've made a bet with a friend (Inter fan) that this season we're finishing 3rd, he says we're finishing 5th. 4th place is a stale mate.

Not talking about 2nd place either, I was talking 3rd and 4th places

For me, Juve are undisputed atm. Napoli are shoe ins for 2nd

The other 2 spots will be up for grabs between us, Inter and Roma

Let's also not discount teams like Lazio, who could have another very good season

You just said we're one great striker away from it!


Not exactly. I said one Modric and Zlatan away from it. I took names. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

Zlatan is out of commission until January, and you'd have to assess whether he'd be as much of an impact signing as he was before the knee injury.

No doubt I'd still take him on a single leg, but you have to consider if he will be a bit limited when he returns

I upgrade my 7/10 to 9 if we get Bonucci. THAT would be our marquee signing. That is a game changer.

Agree. And I am sure that Bonucci wont be the last to come.

I'm hard pressed to remember a market that was this good. Granted, the team needed reinforcements desperately. The signings thus far have been solid (not counting the elder Donnarumma. that one bugs me) and have strengthened areas that needed it badly. I think the team could use a trequartista and a CF but I also don't think that Mirabelli and Fassone are quite done.

And then there's the Bonucci thing. If that comes off...yeah. That would be a marquee signing and serious statement of intent.

What if we get both Bonucci and Auba??

Can our fragile Milan hearts handle that kind of action after years of neglect?

No. I'll quite simply pass out and expect to wake up to Paletta and Lapadula.

Let's all pray to whatever god we believe in that this Bonucci deal gets done between today and tomorrow. Then I'd like to see us put all our efforts into signing Auba/Belotti for the rest of the summer

Trequarista? We just signed Calhanoglu.

Treqs are dead. Anyone who thinks football still uses treqs is stuck in 2009.

In the classical sense, yes. But there are still plenty out there who play the role in their own way.

Football doesn't use them any more - instead the Bonaventura is the archetype for that position now. A hard-working quick, pacy attacking midfielder-cum winger who supports the front and links play up - and most formations run with two or even three of them. I've not seen much of Calhanoglu but he seems to fit that vein too.

The Kaka or Rui Costa concept is well and truly finished.

So....

--------------Donnarumma

Conti, Romagnoli, Bonucci, Rodriguez

----------------Biglia,

--------Jack, Kessie Calhanoglu

-------------Silva---Bacca

At the minute that's our strongest team. I can't think of anyone to pair Biglia with. Unless Musacchio is capable in DM. So otherwise it's a 4-1-3-2 right now.
