Thanks, trying to make these a little more interesting, especially since it's only Serie A this season

Yeah, the Coppa too, maybe we can finally put in some decent displays in that competition


I think this is the game where we can finally talk about how the new players will be fitting in. I'm curious to see how Pippo will use Bonaventura, whether he'll use Van Ginkel from the start and how Torres will fit into the attacking line.

Also curious who he'll choose between Menez and Honda

I'd pick Honda to be honest, and Menez as a bench sub for the last half an hour.

Lazio was a good game, but I hope we won't underestimate Parma. It must be said that Lazio isn't the same as in recent years, they've simply lost too many good players, while others are old and shabby.

I would always play Menez. He's the exact kind of player we need upfront.

Hm, I actually thought Lazio got stronger this season.

Really? How exactly?

Pioli is a bad coach IMO and I cannot see how he was selected as Lazio coach in the first place. By getting Bologna relegated?

Playing Lulić in the middle for example didn't help, on the contrary. They've lost defensive stability without Biava and Dias (who I don't rate that high, but they did a solid job) and looked too many times totally out of sync (even for the first league match). Klose and Radu seem too old and out of shape, while the team lacks a true midfielder in Hernanes. Only Mauri showed the necessary spark.

Well Parma did beat us twice over last season, so yeah, we should approach it with caution

Well, they got Basta, De Vrij and Parolo (whom I consider a mediocre player, but for a team like Lazio he's appropriate). Plus they managed to keep Candreva. Maybe I made a mistake in saying they got stronger, but they certainly aren't as weak as you portray them compared to previous seasons.

I think their squad got stronger, just maybe not their first XI. I like Basta as a player, great work rate.

Is their any doubt Biabiany is going to score against us after this summers pursuit of him?

Basta is a good player. Undecided on de Vrij. His debut was abysmal. Yes, Parolo will find his place in the team. But without a real good coach, a solid defense and someone who can start the actions, I don't see how it's gonna work. I'd prefer all the previous Lazio selection to this one. There's just too many question marks.

Ditto.

Or a front line of Torres, El-Sha & Niang?

PS I echo your sentiments about the match threads - excellent work Han, they're looking good.

Last season we were Milanotelli. Now we're a team.
