Credit should be given where credit is due: Gagliardini did well to contain SMS against Lazio tonight. There were some close calls and times when it was not pretty but Gagliardini did what he was put on the field to do. He can't pass a ball and only knows how to score against Ligurian teams but he definitely knows how to mark, foul and spoil.He should be rewarded when he stops starting Gagliardini
I think we will end up with Frattesi. He is more similar to Barella but I could also see him also playing in tandem with Barella. Basically it would give us 4 starting quality midfielders.Inzaghi showing the management how bad his midfield choices are. Vidal is okay, but will leave soon, Gags is meh, the starting 3 are great and we can't count on Vecino and Sensi, so two new players at least are clearly needed. I say another player that would fight for first team (Aouar?) and one of our younglings out on loan (Agoume?)
clearly that would make us more competitive overall
A bit of a gamble too, but I agree.A recurring feature of Inzaghi is that he will TAILOR MAKE a game plan for each opponent. Sometimes it's extremely complex, like shifting even Brozovic to the left. Sometimes it's just guided by principle: free-flow everyone, but pass back to Dzeko/Brozovic when you run out of ideas. Today it shows that he has the guts to have Gags on for just one purpose - given that he understands SMS is the biggest if not the only threat of Lazio. Tough win after the farce in Bologna, but another tactical masterpiece.
Personally, I think Agoume is too green and Brozovuc’s role is too crucial to the team to sub in Agoume who is much too inexperienced.Would a Brozo back up be...Agoume?
I also think that Agoume is too green for Brozo's spot, but I won't mind him returning back and being introduced patiently in the team. In the rare occasions where Brozovic was missing, I saw that Barella occupies that role and I don't mind it, despite this is not his natural position. If we can get Frattesi, it would be awesome, as he can be great rotation player. Considering that 5G will stay, I want some experienced replacement of Vidal.Would a Brozo back up be...Agoume?
