    How to improve the squad in January

    I don't recall saying that we should make any purchases in the January transfer market. All I said was that we need more creativity and a top-class defender, I never specified when, and that's because I think that we can hold out until next summer. If we drop points against Parma and Lecce...

    How to improve the squad in January

    Creativity. All we need is a top-class defender and some more creativity. Look at what Maresca and Miccoli did to Olympiakos yesterday. They expressed their creativity and we scored goals. These two players, Enzo in particular, need to be granted more playing time.

    How to improve the squad in January

    I don't really see the sense in getting Lazio players because they won't be able to contribute to our CL season.

    I wouldn't say no to that, but I'm sure that Lippi and Moggi will :wallbang:

    How to improve the squad in January

    Stankovic is a brilliant player, but I can't see us getting him unless Tacchinardi or Maresca or Appiah leave :down:

    How to improve the squad in January

    We can get someone like Heinze, or Jankulovski, who not only play left back, but other positions that we lack in, therefore they wouldn't be on the bench 90% of the time.

    How to improve the squad in January

    I think what Lac is trying to say is that we don't have any reliable back-ups for Zambrotta and that we lose ALOT when he's missing.

    Darn, that's right. Oddo and co are cup-tied :wallbang:

    How to improve the squad in January

    You're not going to convince me that Maresca for Oddo is a good move, and I'm clearly not going to convince you that it's a bad one, so let's just leave it like that. We each have our own opinion, and I respect yours. Hopefully you respect mine too. Anyways, I've got to wake up early...

    How to improve the squad in January

    You're laughing, but why not offer Brighi? Lazio want a midfielder, and Brighi is continually doing well for the Azzurrini and puts in honest shifts for Brescia when he gets the chance. I know that if I were Lazio I'd take Brighi and 3-6 million euros for Oddo.

    How to improve the squad in January

    Obviously I don't know what Maresca does in training, but hey, Di Vaio is on the form of his life and he's still on the bench. From what I've seen of Maresca this season, he has great potential. His passing is better than that of any of our other midfielders, he has a good eye for goal, great...

    How to improve the squad in January

    We definitely need defenders, there's no denying it, but losing Maresca will be a major blow in the long term, especially if Davids is on his way out. I know that you must be thinking, 'in the long term? Who gives a bad word about the long term? We need something done now!' and I agree with...

    How to improve the squad in January

    I disagree. As good as Oddo is, I think that Maresca will eventually lead our midfield and supply the needed creative spark.

    How to improve the squad in January

    That would be a very good move as Oddo will offer us the same thing that Zambrotta does, except on the right side, and despite his age, Thuram will add more pace to our central defence. I like the idea.

    How to improve the squad in January

    GK: No problems here. We have the best in the business and when Chimenti retires we can recruit Carini. DEF: Lippi has Thuram and Zambrotta flanking his central defenders, and this doesn't need to be changed. In central defense I want a big, tall, strong defender and a quick, classy one. ie...

    How to improve the squad in January

    :thumb: You're absolutely right as far as I'm concerned. In my estimation, getting Lucio would be taking a step backwards because even Legrottaglie is better. I'm sure that Legro will improve and cut out some of the mistakes that he's making, but having Montero next to him doesn't help the...
