    Champions League 2020-21

    yeah thats why we havent won the CL. It's not that the team chokes in every final.

    They bought Thiago and Jota neither of which are bad players at all. Also selling Salah would be really stupid. There is no one they can buy that wouldnt be a big downgrade he is the league's top scorer. Selling Mane would be a mistake too

    Fabio Paratici

    New signings have surprised me thus far. Apart from Morata (thank god we dodged Dzeko) I thought all the new purchases were going to be duds. We are not a CL winning team and are further from it than 2 years ago, but seem to be laying the foundations to a different kind of game plan than what...

    a turd next to that Pirlo and Vidal would have thrived, and Pogba was actually good back then. If he now joins us Pogba would be a turd next to two mediocrities. There is every reason why this wouldnt work.

    Massimiliano Allegri

    Ole looks to be in for a year or two more but otherwise the UTD job is obviously the better one I agree

    Massimiliano Allegri

    I think his first season with us really showed that he changed our psychology in the CL. His greatest impact wasn't the formation change, but rather his undoing of the "we are too poor to compete in Europe" mentality that Conte instilled in his 3rd season. He raised the ceiling for what the...

    [CL] Barcelona 0-3 Juventus [December 8th, 2020]

    Two clubs with a boat load of talent who are struggling but for different reasons. Barca's struggles stem from a lack of motivation from their most important players. They are phoning it in. Juve's struggles stem from a lack of identity and confidence in our playing style not motivation. If...

    Zlatan's influence is not restricted to the goals/assists he provides, its his leadership in the dressing room too that adds to a team's maturity. United was a good example of that. This shouldnt take away from Pioli ofc he is obviously doing something right. Kessie seems to be maturing mentally too

    And if Bale recovers full fitness and form on top of that they'll be really scary upfront. Mourinho is doing a good job this time. The squad looks like a winning Mourinho team. They are a work in progress for sure but definitely moving in the right direction.

    Paulo Dybala

    Yeah his passing is insane. I think he is the best midfielder in the world and I hate that he is spending his career at City. I hope he moves on to a better team even if he doesnt end up here. He is 29 now so its perfect timing for his last big club move.

    Dybala + cash for De Bruyne. Would you do it?

    Serie A 2020-21

    As we have known from previous years, it doesnt take much to win Serie A. Milan doesn't have to be amazing to win the league. We haven't been amazing for a few years now and we won it comfortably. You just have to be the best of the bad bunch.
