the problem with relying on your team to outscore the opponents and having a shit defense, as we know, is our strikers will go missing for a few months of the season. Suddenly, when the goals dry up, the points dry up too. If you're tight at the back and can win 1-0, 2-0 on a regular basis, its a different story.

Milan, Juve, Atalanta, Lazio, Roma, Inter are all reasonable shouts for top 4. If we'd won even two more of our big games this table would be a completely different story. But we didnt.

I'm gonna be bold and say that we are EXTREMELY lucky to be so close to a 4th place. Even some of our wins looked like losses :lol:
Have you watched Milan play?

Same can be said for them. The only difference is that they beat us

and that is why all those 6 before mentioned teams have a real chance to finish in 3 spots of top4 (Napoli will surely be top4 when the season ends)

exciting times for Serie A, not so good for me since we have like 50-50 chance to make a top4 finish and I'm scared what will happen to this team if we don't make it

The only thing that makes me worry about our place in the top 4 is Inzaghi's approach to making suspicious substitutions. Not the absence of key players, not the tight schedules, not anything else. We have been losing points because of that and we almost did so yesterday. He changed Bastoni for absolutely no reason while leaving De Vrij who was making mistakes too often on the pitch. This has been happening many times and you can literally read in Basotni's face how he is unhappy about that. Whenever we lead by 1-2 goals Inzaghi takes the most impactful players out and subs on some invalids like Gaglia or Correa and then the chaos starts. It's as if he does it on purpose "oh wait we are about to win, we have to lose so that other rivals can catch up, let me fix this". Sounds stupid but this is how it looks to me.

Wasn't Bastoni taken out because he was injured?

Which subs were poor in Atalanta match as an example?

We lost at home against Roma (unfortunate loss). Other than that, all the rest were away ie. we have Juve, Lazio and Atalanta at home (Milan too but it's a bit different case). I'm sure we're going to do better in those games result-wise.

We need to also remember this of the 4 matches left

Inter: Napoli
Milan: Roma, Lazio
Juve: Napoli, Atalanta (and Udinese)
Lazio: Milan
Atalanta: Juve
Roma: Milan

So Milan and Juve have maybe a bit trickier schedules before the halfway mark.

Watching the Milan Fiorentina game yesterday made me realize why Madrid got rid of Jovic .. he was awful worse than Correa for us :D:D

You are right, apparently he picked up a small injury during the match, so yeah, that justifies the substitution.
