Milan will buy a quality striker for that money. Jon David maybe if EPL moneybags Chelsea won't interrupt.
Jonathan David is worth about three times as much as the transfer fee for De Ketelaere

great referee in the Roma-Frosinone game, not a single mistake so far, talks with the players, explains them, no bullshit yellow cards. Abisso take lessons you fuck.

And it's been this way since Man Utd. Love Jose but football changed and he didn't.
Man Utd has been that way since Van Gaal and hasn't changed since :lol:
If anything, Mourinho spanked them 6-1 with another team in the meantime...

Yeah , but they have loan options for 20M€ too for few players after getting 30M€ back from Ketelaere . Saele, Messias, Origi, then Daniel Maldini, Colombo and Gabbia are free loans, but can be moneytized. Also they could sell one starter again after rebuilding with Tonali. They have brains now in management. Moncada is a competent scout. David is light Lautaro if you will. Not WC, but he could fluorish next to Leao who knows. They will need a WC CB and RB too imo.

Okafor could also flourish. Really hard to say with such a young squad, they just keep winning in Serie A

Kostic benched by Cambiaso? Is Cambiaso that good or Kostic that bad?
Kostic is more static and a worse dribbler. He also doesn’t really do the inverted fullback thing as well. Cambiaso just more versatile.

Just checked line-ups from Atalanta-Gobbi match, and lack of quality in both teams is crazy.

Wouldn't surprise me at all if the match finishes with a goalless draw.

Juventus need to sack Allegri and start over
Allegri is mediocre but looking at their squad these days, I’m not seeing an abundance of talent compared to what Allegri had to choose from during his first stint with the old cunt.

Moise Kean? Cambiaso? Weston Mckennie? These players wouldn’t even have gotten into their B squad years ago.

I still think they’ll hover around the top spots though. They have no European obligations and Allegri will eventually grind out miserable 1-0 performances as other sides wear down over the course of the next 8 months.

I honestly don't think Allegri is the problem in gobbi. Their squad is pretty damn average and I actually think if there is one person that can keep them competitive with this side, it has to be Allegri. Every other coach would make them more or less worse, unless they go for a new project. Coach takes the blame when things aren't working in the pitch, but I mean, their management has done terrible job in the transfer market and look at their situation now. Quality in their team has gone down the hill.

We keep saying that every season and we mostly get spanked by these B-listers. Allegri will make them play like badasses against us.

Allegri is a great coach.. he judt manages a wrong club at a wrong time
If he had our Team or Napoli he would win easily scudetto

Allegri's biggest problem is he doesn't have a system. Instead he relies on individuals. He keeps it tight in defence and counts on individual brilliance in attack to win him games. When he won the title at Milan, he mostly counted on Ibra. When Berlusca sold Thiago Silva and Ibra he went from a title challenge to barely qualifying for CL.

Similar story at Juve. When he was winning he counted on BBC to keep the clean sheet while moments of individual brilliance in attack won him games. It also helped there was no real competition in the league. Only Napoli (and to a lesser extent Roma) posed a threat to Juve. But in his second stint there's no BBC to keep things tight in the back and they lack the quality in attack to win games. Vlahovic is a quality forward but he's inconsistent and most importantly he can't win games on his own. He needs feeding. Pre injury Chiesa could be that player but he looked lost in Allegri's constant formation changes and post injury he's inconsistent and nowhere near his best. Rest of the squad doesn't have the quality. And that's why Juve are struggling so much to create chances. You either need chances to come out of a system or you need to have the indvidual quality to create them on your own. Juve has neither. Allegri and current Juve side are just a bad fit.

Allegri would do better at Inter or Napoli in terms of results (while playing horribly) but that would be due to the players. If anything it exposes Allegri's limitations as a coach who's good only at specific circumstances.

I'm sorry but I never knew Big Black Cock was keeping things tight in the back. Quite the opposite, I'd say.

Imagine if we commited to Dybala, brought Thuram the next season and also maybe kept one of our promising strikers as the fourth option. Now that sounds like a Scudetto worthy side to me.

I watched only the first half, but Di Gregorio was great. Gagliardini gifted the ball once, which almost caused a goal for Sassuolo.
