Don't worry guys, Paratici is here. No matter how you feel, a pay raise and multi-year extension will be following shortly.

Even more, imagine us renewing/extending Chiellini and then terminating CR7’s contract all in one summer, which realistically speaking ain’t that far off from what might actually happen.

I’m sure of at least one member here whom is already scheduled for a mental breakdown if that ever comes to fruition. :lol:

Good thing it didn't cost us in the end, but yeah, altough i agree it was clumsy i also think it was an rather easy penalty that could just aswell not have been awarded and probably wouldn't have if the same happened at the other end, anyway obviously needs to be more carefull given how everything is under the microscope this days.

he was pretty much flawless until the end. Often times you don’t even see the immediate threats because he sniffs plays out before they happen. If he wants to stay, he should be allowed to, but only if he’s ok being a backup because we can’t rely on him as a starter anymore.

First and foremost Chiellini is clearly struggling to adapt to the new era of VAR.

Those cheap shots that he used to get away with won’t go unpunished any longer. That’s two crucial penalties against Napoli he’s conceded this year.

If he stays, I think it’s too late for him to change his game. We’ll just have to accept it and hope he doesn’t f up too often.

If Pepe, and Silva can still do it at their age, so can Chiellini, with only difference being them guys start week in week out and given simple instructions. Despite the blunders and goals we've conceded I think a good coach at the helm will and can get the best out of every player, even the fully ripe ones.

Theres not many players who have gone injury free, especially at the back, i dont have any stats at hand but i'd like to see something on lhe lines of a a history of who's been the injured the most this season. To me it just feels like we are riding at a cursed time now, players are either out injured, or simply can't perform because of consitency or just the fact they are made to look shit because of the unorganised and careless dynamic style of football we play.

Yep. We need to sell the high earners in defense, Bonucci and Alex Sandro. We can't afford to let Chiello walk yet, plus as a depth option he's more than great. Reminder that just recently we had Rugani and Caceres as backups, Chiellini in 15 years will be better than those

Was solid throughout the game, involved all the way and perhaps among the best on the pitch overall today, proving once again that when fit enough he is still a very reliable option to have when called upon, much needed even.

What is it that, 3 full games in a row now? I honestly wouldn't force our luck but we didn't/don't have much of a choice atm i guess.
