Still not sure should I go to a concert or watch this live. Both options seems wrong somehow. Or right. Not sure.

My father was in Italy and he brought me this. Almost the whole La Gazzetta dello Sport dedicated to Game 1 Milano derby in UCL

I would love to see GDS write about Inter winning CL

Just woke up from a dream where Haaland scored a 35 yard first time volley, and they went on to batter us 4-0.

Dream me took it particularly well, can’t say it’d be the same in real life.

obviously the press dont really know whats going on in inzaghi's head, but the rumours are dzeko over lukaku atm. If that's what happens, this guy doesnt deserve a renewal tbh.

dzeko has scored 5 goals since december, total. Lukaku has scored that many in May alone.

It could be a tactical choice though. With the current form of Lukaku, he should be undoubtedly a starter. Anyway if we win at the end, I don't care too much.

You should put money on the same result.

He can do whatever he wants, he brought us here in a first place.

well, yes, I'm not suggesting he literally cant play Dzeko over Lukaku, but I dont think it'd be a rational choice.

I agree that Lukaku should start, but if he doesnt I wont demand Limone's head cause of that. Lukaku is not prime Messi or Cr7.

hmm, I think I misphrased

Starting Dzeko doesnt mean FIRE INZAGHI NOW, but rather, I'd be questioning his sanity. Obviously the result of the match is what matters, and if Dzeko pulls it out the bag somehow, then fair play, genius 200 IQ play, but everything I see at te moment suggests Lukaku should absolutely be the starter, not Dzeko

The only rationale to starting Dzeko is that neither he nor Lukaku have 90 minutes in their legs, and subbing in Lukaku with his pace and strength against tired defenders is a much bigger game changer than subbing on the striker formerly known as Dzeko. But with that said, playing 60 minutes of Dzeko and 30 minutes of Lukaku based on their current forms would be straight sabotage.

I also don't have problems with Džeko starting. But no more than like 55 minutes max. Whatever the choice is in the end can't complain too much really. I'm not even exactly sure what I would do If I'm the coach,both moves make sense to me on some level. It's maybe 55% Lukaku - 45% Džeko right now.

I would start LuLa upfront and try to repeat same formula like against Atalanta and beelan. Try to fuck em early in the game. Go 150% from start. Full attack. If we start defending from start we are definitely fucked.

Would City defenders really be that tired out by playing against Dzeko? I kinda doubt it.
