    Because they're fake fans thats how
    Because NT is equivalent with FA and the whole country, which in case of post 2006 italy, it mean an utterly disgusting entity.

    I want Buffon to break another record (no one has ever played in 6 World Cups).

    Ok I don't get Ventura. Rumor is he is going to start Gabbiadini. This guy has never had a break out year. This year he has scored 3 goals for Southhampton.

    Mark my words, this is the most important match Italy will play for as long as I can remember. Not qualifying for the world cup would be a national disgrace and would mark a new low for Italian football. In such a match, how the hell could you consider starting someone like Gabbiadini.

    Insigne and Immobile should start up front as they are the most in-form forwards.

    All of us were puzzled by the selections Conte made at the Euros, but Conte is an excellent motivator which led to the national team out-performing at that tournament. Ventura is not a great motivator so he should pick the best players - pure and simple.

    I missed the first leg. However, it is fair to say that Italy were unlucky - 2 or shots off the post and a near miss while we conceded with a rickochet. We can still turn this around, but its going to need a near perfect game. I am afraid that I am not too optimistic. I suspect we will win this but by 2-1 and get knocked out on away goals.

    By the way guys, I plan on watching this. Aside from the usual streaming sites, is there a site streaming it on-line where I can use a VPN to get it?

    Is he seriously not starting Insigne again? Is this a sick joke?

    In fact, there are plenty in-form italian players that could decide this game if they play in the formation that suits their tactics , talent is not what's really missing, what this new generation really is missing is the experience of playing games of such pressure/importance...

    I'm gonna say it again that it is only up to Ventura and his staff to mess this up again with their semi-pro coaching decisions by not being able to find a reliable mixture of experience and youth for a default first 11 , in over a year in charge he still seems totally confused of who, what and when to play...

    I can't see this going well. Morale is low. Ventura has no imagination. How can a man that old, who spent his whole life in football, only resolve to play two formations? You should always play the best players.

    Not starting Insigne is bad enough - but he might start Gabbiadini which is even worse!

    Yeah altitude really does play a role. Also, you can't necessarily train for it. Some people just can't cope well. I'm almost certain every European team would lose to Bolivia simply because they have never had to play a game under those conditions.

    He's a businessman. What's to say he wouldn't make the right choice when in office? He's not kept abreast of military intelligence in the Middle East because he doesn't have access to it and perhaps doesn't have the time to be. But that's not to say he wouldn't make an astute decision when he has all the facts in front of him.

    When you think Italy are in deep $#@! and then you see they're predicted to start 3-5-2 with Insigne on the bench.

    Not sure to laugh or cry.
