Yeah, injuries happen - especially for a team that was in 4 competitions. I think our competitors have had worse issues with injuries. Didn't Milan have all of Thiaw/Tomori/Kalulu out for 2-4 months at the same time? They had to play Theo Hernandez and Simic from primavera as centre-backs.

In addition, with Cuadrado coming back, we have the ability to 'move' Carlos Augusto to a centre-back more regularly if needed.

We've also done fairly well with our previous injuries. I believe we had De Vrij/Bastoni/Pavard injured at the same time and Dumfries/Cuadrado out during that similar period as well, and we did fine.

Not saying it means we'll go out and win every game or win easily, but it's not as if we have half the team out yet. Even in defence, we still have the option of Pavard/Darmian/Bisseck/Bastoni/C. Augusto - that's 5 players for 3 positions.

If we can't win the scudetto by the end of the season, I'll stop watching football seriously. Losing Acerbi, Sommer, and de Vrij almost at the same time is just ridiculous.
Another win coming up this weekend mate.

Calabria: "Second Inter star in the derby?

"It's still early to talk about Inter's second star in the derby, there are games before, but we want to win them all, so it won't happen"

They are already anxious less than 1 month before the game. As they should.

Nobody's gonna to stop the second star. Both Milan and Juve right now are way behind Inter in terms quality so all they have to do is sit and watch that second star happening.

There's less than 1% possibility that Inter bottles it. But I love how they're all of sudden back at it :lol:

I like this fella.

"RUbENTUS is looking for new players to expand its staff for the next season, and one of the options for filling the stopper positions is Riccardo Calafiori, a soccer player from Bologna and a member of the Italian U-21 national team. He is not in the least impressed by the interest shown in him by the famous Italian club.

The player whose value according to Transfermarkt jumped from 5 million euros to 25 million euros since October last year is under contract with Bologna until the summer of 2027. He claims that he would rather respect the agreement he has with the current club than move to the trophy-winning Torino giants.

"For me, Juventus would be a step backwards compared to Bologna, a club that works the right way. I would rather stay here than ever put on a Juventus shirt. My father despises Juventus and I respect my father. There is no money for which I would go there gone," Calafiori stated."

I watched some games of Bologna this season, and I'd say that he is not very good as defender, but he goes in attack every often and it seems that he has good stamina, which allows him to make forward runs even in a late game. 25mln seems to much at this point of his career though. We got Bisseck for 7, and he is doing quite well.

It won't happen mate.

Edit: The heart attack might, but not this year 😁

What tactics! I couldn't imagine dropping points to this edition of Napoli!
Enter the Benny Hill theme, synonymous with our finishing.

Inter is in a bit of slump the last few games, not so much result wise as gameplay wise.

Atalanta is proving this right now, we should've won by a 3 goal margin as well.

Having said that, I reckon we'll pump Empoli.

Gennaro Gattuso: "Pirlo has the face of an angel but he's a real son of bitch. He always makes jokes, always, doesn't stand still. One day I was eating at the training ground and I had the bad idea to forget my phone on the table.

Pirlo took it and sent a text to the AC Milan vice-president: "Dear Galliani, if you give me the salary I want, you can have my sister."

He called me immediately and I had to explain to him that it was another stupid joke by Pirlo."
