    In international tournaments? I disagree. Greece 2004, Italy 2006, Portugal 2016 show that is not necessarily the case.

    That team was the luckiest I've seen until Portugal 2016. Made up for all their bad luck in the 2000's.

    did he watch di Natale play at Udinese every week? Totti at Roma? Pirlo at Milan? the only time(s) hes seen them that we know for sure was the few weeks a year at the NT, which Di Natale wasnt even part of that often, so to say he has seen anyone much more than us is speculation.

    also, this is only his opinion, a quite stupid one i have to say, which is why i hate that he had to say it

    it's Camoranesi, he's impulsive, it's what made him such a great and lovable player

    “Staggering” and “bewildering” were two of the other words the livid Northern Ireland manager used to describe Hategan’s decision to penalise Corry Evans for a perceived handball, when in fact the ball had hit his back, and award the Swiss a penalty that Ricardo Rodriguez converted.
    Furious Jonny Evans says penalty decision was 'even worse than the Thierry Henry v Ireland handball'
    Northern Ireland star Corry Evans slams 'disgraceful' penalty

    This is what I mean, @. It's the Northern Irish in this case, I know, but it's similar. Everyone will like them, their fans and say how great is that they are simply able to enjoy themselves and never bitch about the opposition or the ref, unlike those nasty Italians.

    And it's just not $#@!ing true. They bitch too. With the difference being that they actually suck and really don't deserve anything anyway. Forza Switzerland, I hope they beat them 10-0 at home.

    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.

    So now that the dust has settled, I was just thinking, how many of our players are going to be in the starting XI's in the world cup, off the top of my head

    lichsteiner, benatia, mandzukic, cuadrado - that's about it really

    bench - dybala, sandro, bentancur, matuidi, khedira, costa

    Says a lot about the actual raw material that allegri has to work with, especially when you see how many players teams like real, barcelona, bayern, psg, man city will be sending to the world cup

    we are not on the same level as these teams. we are like 10th club in eu, so what? we are punching above our weight, and so what?

    we can win CL, and italian nt should be at world cup.

    I agree we are punching above our weight..so what? well that is not a sustainable model

    And as a fan I'd like to see us considered the elite top 4 in europe consistently as that would mean more exciting matches and trophies and the network effect that comes along with it

    Looking back, I fondly remember the 2006 world cup final where there were so many juve players on both the teams (buffon, zambrotta, cannavaro, camoranesi, iaquinta, del piero, zidane(well sorta) , thuram, trezeguet)

    Could be blessing in disguise for 2018/19. All those other major CL contenders will have their stars back tired and overplayed.

    Denmark, Iceland, Croatia: these are the teams I'll be rooting for at the World Cup. The rest can go pound sand up their ass.

    Who cares dude.
    All the teams you mention have a lot of players because their NT's qualified (so they have 5-6 players guaranteed).
    We'd have Buffon, Chellini, Barzagli, Sturaro, Bernardeschi, Rugani and maybe Marchisio going there had Ventura done his $#@!ing job properly.
