    Premier League 2019/20

    We'd still complain that Sarri doesnt have a good full back and cant do more unless an upgrade on Danilo is obtained.

    Premier League 2019/20

    Will City have to cut spending and get players/Pep off the books to get in line with FFP under the ban? I am thinking they were already over-spending which will be curbed and the real part of revenues will take a big hit because of no CL for 2 seasons. So massively reduced revenues will need...

    Maurizio Sarri

    Inzaghi is promising as was Sarri based on what he is doing at a smaller club. Remains to be seen whether he could cut it at the top level or not. I wouldnt be surprised if a big club make a bet on him just like Chelsea and Juve did with Sarri.

    Champions League 2019/20

    Klopp built a record breaking world class team thats having the best run in EPL history thus far in the season. Thats why the points gap is so huge its not because City is in free-fall or is crap. City is still a very good team with a very bright future and every chance of winning titles this...

    Maurizio Sarri

    I'd definitely sign Pep. Huge PR move for neutrals and media coverage. Has a great eye for identifying and developing young talents. His name alone attracts a lot of promising talent. Creates a very strong and effective offensive identity in the team and leaves a solid foundation of a young...

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    This team has no chance to win the CL unless somehow the confidence and hunger suddenly kick in because its the CL. I predict a similar exit to the one we had against Ajax. If we face a confident hungry team that puts 100% every match, we will be over run again. They dont have to be a team of...

    Juventuz LIVE matches 2019/2020

    Bringing in 2 midfielders, and the world's most expensive defender and a highly rated coach with new offensive ideas looks good on paper as something that can reverse the decline and kick start a new cycle to skip the decline part of the previous cycle. I think this is a more challenging job...

    Juventuz LIVE matches 2019/2020

    That started to fall apart last season and we attributed it to the end of Max's cycle. Sarri hasnt curbed the decline.

    Juventuz LIVE matches 2019/2020

    With the exception of last season, since our first title Teams faced us with no hope of winning, and we played with the confidence that we can beat anyone (in Serie A that is). Now they know they have a solid chance of getting something out of it so they are all going for it. While we look...

    Juventuz LIVE matches 2019/2020

    All the teams we are facing are tasting blood. They could sense the vulnerability and they know our scalp is for the taking. The only way turn this tide is to turn around and smash a few teams. Otherwise they'll all have belief that they can take us out. We are the ones playing with fear not them.

    Maurizio Sarri

    his resume isnt bad. He met and almost exceeded expectations at Napoli and Chelsea. He was given a good but not great squad and was asked to finish top 4 and try to win secondary titles if possible and he delivered. No one seriously expected Napoli or Chelsea to win anything important or to...

    Maurizio Sarri

    All we need is Pele and Messi added to the attack, and Zidane, Veron and Pirlo added to the midfield any maybe a Cannavaro and a Maldini. Anything less than that would make criticism of Sarri unfair. He just doesnt have enough good players to play proper football.

    Maurizio Sarri

    A Pogba or an Eriksen would no doubt improve the quality of our football. They would improve any team they join. But without such level of signing I think we should still perform much better. While we might lack a top top tier creative midfielder but we have enough very good midfielders.. they...

    Maurizio Sarri

    I envy Inter fans. They have that belief and excitement that great things are to come and the team has very good grinta and is giving its all. While we have fears that this season will be worse than the last. You'd think they bought Ronaldo & De Ligt and we bought Lukaku. This coach doesn't...

    Sandro Tonali - DM - Brescia

    Its the conclusion of the article. He is a great transition player which suits Brescia but he is also extremely raw as a playmaker and defender. He is at the 52nd percentile of players in terms of % of their total team passes, and 2-5 times lower than Pirlo in betweeness/hubness. And 26th and...

    Sandro Tonali - DM - Brescia

    This was a very good read thank you. The author highlights his key strength as being a transition player and flat out says he is too raw/weak in the other aspects of being a CM, which is not good enough for a top team. His short passing, possession play, tackles and interceptions are no where...
