  1. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

    https://www.calciomercato.com/en/news/exclusive-milinkovic-savic-delayed-lazio-return-to-facilitate-ch-48784 So, apparently there might have been an offer of €115m+Musonda. Would it be awesome but I don't believe that for a second. We'll end up with Vecino.
  2. Miralem Pjanic

    Apparently if we do buy Pjanic it means Kante is off. This is what they say in Italy.
  3. Alisson Becker

    Ter Stegen ability with the ball at his feet ideal to Barcelona's style of play + Oblak top class goalkeeper = no bidding war for a keeper with only one year left in his contract. There's only one team interested in Courtois and only one team he's desperate to join.
  4. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    It won't have been easy but the translator did a really poor job. He clearly spoke about a lack of quality in midfield.
  5. Alisson Becker

    Sorry to disappoint you mate but this is totally distant from reality. Oblak is a hell of a goalkeeper though, one I'd gladly spend Alisson kind of money on.
  6. Gianluigi Donnarumma

    Now with Alisson gone Donnarumma is probably the best available option left, and for a reasonable price (approx €40/45m). The problem might be he has a huge salary plus a useless brother who will come with him. From a football point of view he can make unbelievable saves and awful mistakes in the same game. Actually there have been too many mistakes only in his last season, more than Tibo has in his whole short career. Two season ago no one would have chosen Alisson over him, the first one was a bench warmer in Roma while Donnarumma the highest-rated young goalkeeper in the Europe (he could still be up there). Last few things: worse than Tibo with his feet, a real calamity, Sarri called him a sensational goalkeeper when Napoli played AC Milan this season (Donnarumma made a couple of incredible saves that day).
  7. The Conte Thread

    Glad to have Sarri here but Conte deserved more respect from the club. Grazie Antonio.
  8. Jorginho

    As much as I am excited for Sarri, €57m (+8) for Jorginho are ridiculous though.
  9. Next Manager?

    Sorry if already posted. Here you can find an interesting Nat Chalobah's audio interview about his loan spell in Napoli under Sarri. https://audioboom.com/channel/golazzo--the-totally-italian-football-show Don't worry, If appointed we won't just run upfront like headless chickens. Here's the transcription (in Italian) https://www.iamnaples.it/notizie-calcio-napoli/chalobah-gli-schemi-di-sarri-roba-mai-vista-parla-inglese-ma-non-in-allenamento/
  10. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    Great second half for Zap tonight with Italy. Best player on the pitch. We got some player in our hands.
  11. Diego Costa

    Diego will never play for Chelsea again, sad but true. Even Remy was in that 21 players list and left the club 1 hour later
  12. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    What surprised me most is that what happened with Alonso didn't teach anything. The Bolton\Sunderland level player is now regarded around Europe as one of the top 10 LB currently playing the game (yes I'm a big fan of the Spaniard). Zappacosta fits perfectly in our system, much better than in a back four, and has all the attributes to become a Conte's favourites. He's definitely an upgrade to Moses, who is not a proper WB, and he can also play on both flanks. Not a world class player but give him time to settle in and he will come good. Bytheway, he's faster than Alonso.
  13. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    We were after him since last season, or do you believe his name came out after checking for rwb on google? If you like to call him a panic buy feel free to do it but he's not.
  14. Deadline Day!

    Zappacosta. If true, well done to the board and Conte (who obviously is behind this move). Still young, italian international, good crosser and can run down the flank for 90 minutes and more. Don't laugh, we can have pull an "Alonso" with this one, or even better. I pick Zappacosta ahead of Rafinha everyday. Unfortunately it won't be easy cause Torino is a tough club to deal with. Don't call him a panic buy, he has attracted interest from Conte since last season.
