    Offer your services to become the couch. We will see what you would do.
    We lost because to many tired players, for most of the year the front 4 and the 2 mids had no replacements.
    The second half we were dead. That is all it was.

    Yes we need him, are you kidding. Pereyra is nothing else than a good player, not even a great player, for teams like Udinese and Watford

    The season start is right around the corner and we still need a defensive mid and a rightback. Come on Beppe, don't let us down.

    I have a feeling we will panic buy some RB.

    This Cancelo thing is dragging way too long.

    We won't get another right back, Sandro, De Sciglio, Asa/Licht and Spinazzola will be our wing backs.

    Then I REALLY hope De Sciglio will step up for us. We can survive with a weakened RB position though, that midfield position is critical for us.

    A Left sided midfielder is right back now?

    Spinazzola will definitely come in to play one of the wing back spots. I don't think we will see him as a winger.

    That didnt answer my question. A left sided player is suddenly good enough to start for righ back?

    He prefers the left, but can play on the right side too.

    Idolizes Zambrotta. Believe he's being brought in to compete with de Sciglio at RB.

    Will be interesting to see what happens with the Asa/Licht situations.

    He started about 3-4 matches on the right last season, and in previous seasons at Perugia, Vicenza, Siena, it looks like he played on the right quite often.

    However, he's hardly ever played as a left back or a right back.
    It's been a prevalent notion. Fallen sparks. Fragments of vessels broken at the Creation. And someday, somehow, before the end, a gathering back to home. A messenger from the Kingdom, arriving at the last moment. But I tell you there is no such message, no such home -- only the millions of last moments . . . nothing more. Our history is an aggregate of last moments.

    Well he's right footed. And his main asset as a LWB or LM is that he can cut inside because he has pretty decent dribbling. But that's not really a requirement in our current setup so he should be able to play RB.

    He played as a LWB like Salvo said and will have no problems to play on the right. He will follow the path of Zambrotta, who was a LW when he started at Bari like Spina was a RW in our Primavera. There will be no problem on the right for him and there is some quality there.
    We will see if DeSciglio will be revitalized by Allegri or if Spinazzola will take over. I like Spinazzola , he will do well here.
    Asamoah is leaving he has all ready an agreement with Galatasary if I remember well.

    This is how I see the mercato going from here. Only 3 transfers to go.

    IN: Spinazzola, Matuidi, Keita
    OUT: Asamoah.

    I think it will be Asamoah who goes rather than Lichsteiner. The reason I think behind this is that we will start the season with 4 recognized CBs. Lichsteiner can play as a centre back in emergency situations. The management may not see the point in getting a 5th CB at this time.

    - - - Updated - - -

    In that event this would be the squad:

    GK: Buffon, SZCZESNY, PINSOLGIO
    DEF: DE SCIGLIO, Lichsteiner, Barzagli, Rugani, Benatia, Chiellini, Sandro, SPINAZZOLA
    MIDs: Khedira, Pjanic, Marchisio, BENTANCUR, MATUIDI, Sturaro
    FWDs: Cuadrado, COSTA, BERNARDESCHI, Pjaca, Dybala, KEITA, Mandzukic, Higuain

    Squad of 25 (not too big or small). 8 defenders, 6 mids, and 8 forwards. I know that someone said if you have a back 4 you have 8 defenders in your squad so why not 8 forwards....the issue with that argument is that who knows what formation we will have at the end of the season? A back 4 or back 3 is a given and hence you need 8-9 players (including wing backs). However, ONLY if you play 4231 would you make an argument for 8. You revert to a front 3 or have just a front 2 and all of a sudden your squad is too heavily skewed.

    At the beginning of the transfer market I would have thought we would have had 9 defenders, 6-7 mids, and 6-7 forwards.
