Yeah Juventus are definitely more of a danger than Milan imo- they’re improving as well imo. Easy win against Parma it looks like.

Feel for him, despite him being a Milan player. Hope he gets better.

The fucker is an absolute legend even at 39. The way he has inspired that team of kids and misfits into a force to be reckoned with, and at 39 is easily their best players and possibly the best player in Serie A sop far this season. 39! To put it in context, grandpa Valero is 35 now. Zlatan is 39. Absolute legend.

Fuck him,hope he rots. He hates Inter since we won treble when he was at Barca.So fuck that mercenary cunt.

Like it or not, after Calciopoli he did same thing for us. He united locker room and helped us to become winners.

In 2007-8. In 2006-7 life was good. The problems started arising when Mancini lost to Valencia in the Champions League in 2007 and then we had a thinner roster. We got Chivu and Suazo, but didn't want to compete with the bigger wallets of Europe at the time. Chivu was a steal obviously at the time, he was a beast.

But this was the summer we got guys like Luis Jimenez, Nelson Rivas and that Pele kid and we let Grosso go. Guys who were expected to have great seasons did not, like Vieira, Figo, Crespo, Solari, Samuel and Suazo. Partly due to Mancini.

Suazo was one of my favorite transfers ever. I think Milan even announced him on their official website :lol:

Yeah it was one of those last transfer battles against Milan and one of the first that we actually won in the 2000s :D

Kaka was also one, but we didn't really pursue him because Cuper didn't want him.

But we had lost Jankulovski, Stam, indirectly Nesta ("not for sale", then handed to Milan for less after Galliani threatened Cragnotti), Bonera... Maybe a few others like Gourcuff and Gilardino were also transfer battles between us but I don't recall if it were at the same time.

And of course we got the short end of the stick with the deals around Pirlo, Seedorf, Davala, Simic, Helveg etc.

So that Suazo transfer was viewed as a clear signal of who's boss in the city and that the tide has changed. Too bad he wasn't that much of a use here, he wasn't a bad player at all.

Atalanta with this confidence is scary. But stopping Roma now was more important tbh. We are on our course for top4 finish like Beppe wants :chan:

Genoa are 100% going down, trash team. Shame considering they're a historic club. That Shomurodov guy they have looks like he'll become a half-decent Serie A player like Duncan, Destro or Lukaku.

And meanwhile the Darian Males kid we loaned there can’t even get an appearance. Incredible how often this happens. Just stop loaning in Serie A, send the kids to Germany or Netherlands where they will actually be given a chance.

They're bringing back Ballardini hoping he can save their asses once again. Unlike Fiorentina and Torino, who have decent squads and are simply underperforming, Genoa have a pretty poor squad. I doubt changing the coach will be enough to save the season. They're going to need a very active winter mercato.

Don't know about Genoa but Giampaolo is destroying Torino as well, after the fine job he's done at Milan.

I feel bad for Torino. They have also had a difficult run of fixtures.

Can't help feeling that this will continue till they face Inter next.

Difficult to feel bad for a club that brought doom upon itself by hiring Giampaolo as a manager...

I've said it before, the club should get some kind of partnership with a club in Holland. The shit players I see during the weekend in Holland is laughable and players like Agoume, Esposito, Males etc would be for sure starters at any club bare the top 3.
