    Barella
    Old name
    the dude

    Sweden

    1) Where will we finish

    Scudetto

    2)Who will be our best player

    1. Barella
    2. Lukaku
    3. De Vrij
    4. Sanchez

    3) Will Conte survive the season?

    He will, but after all the drama this summer i doubt he will want to stay for another year.

    4) Who will be the most disappointing player?

    Depending on expectations, but i think with the formation Conte is pushing Skriniar will never live up to the standards of De Vrij and more surprisingly Bastoni.

    Brozo will be brozo, good but never really reassuringly good enough for several games in a row.

    Martinez cant handle pressure and i think we can forget him being in the form he was the first part of the last season.

    Eriksen for the sole purpose of never getting a chance and always criticized for the 10 minites he will get to play here and there...

    5) Where will our Champions League Group go?

    We will probably survive the group stage... then its all lottery

    6) Our failings and successes

    Failings: not being able to play 2/3/4 different formations, thus limiting players and player options. Players like Asamoah getting to play some cup games, etc. Not being able to get rid of unnecessary players.

    Successes: When technically gifted players will start to gel with eachother, we might witness some insane badassery. Somewhat good mixture of young and some really experienced players with champion mentality.

    7) Who will get more bench time than you’d expect

    Skriniar, Eriksen, Hakimi

    8) Who will get less bench time than you’d expect

    Sensi

    9) Best U23 Player

    Bastoni by far.

    10) Best Over 30 Player

    I think all the older guys have insane respect for Conte, and they will all deliver big time for him. So most probably all of them will have great season. Talking about Young, Sanchez, Kolarov, Radja if he stays, Perisic as well, Vidal if he joins.

    11) How will we perform against our main rivals

    Beat Milan twice.
    Beat Juve once for sure.
    Roma win and draw.
    Lazio win/win.

    12) Any other major league prediction

    Milan will sack Pioli much sooner than expected. Not even top 4 finish.

    Juve will struggle for the second place.

    Napoli will have a good season, easily top3.

    Immobile wont score more than 14 goals. With 5 goals from the penalty spot.

    Lukaku will be the leading goalscorer, 23-27 goals.

    Skriniar

    Italy

    1 - Where will we finish?

    Fuck it, we win it this year.

    2 - Who will be our best player?

    Barella is going to tear the league apart this season.

    3 - Will Conte survive the season?

    Absolutely, but he won't extend and will be gone by the end of the 21/22 season.

    4 - Who will be the most disappointing player?

    Brozovic will likely struggle next year, particularly if he doesn't feel he's first choice anymore.

    5 - Where will our CL campaign go?

    Even if we get past the group we'll be out in the Ro16.

    6 - Our failings and successes (e.g. defense sucks, attack is really good, Hakimi-Lukaku link up play is world class, etc).

    We'll probably outrun most teams quite easily. The Pintus preparation that killed Sensi for half a year should hopefully start showing some results, it definitely showed against Leverkusen and Shaktar already.

    The right half of our team (Skriniar-Barella-Hakimi-Lukaku) will have an unbelievable season. Likewise our defense will probably confirm itself as the best in the league again. However, the lack of a quality 4th striker and starting LWB will kill us somewhere along the way, probably in some kind of cup game.

    Handanovic is a mystery to me, I think he was sub-par last season but hopefully he has a brilliant year in what will probably be his final season as a certified starter.

    7 - Who will get more bench time than you'd expect?

    We all know Conte loves his boys but I expect Candreva to be relegated to the bench for the majority of the season, particularly if Darmian comes in. Eriksen will also be on the bench more than we'd hope but hopefully it's because he's being rotated with an out of this world Sensi again.

    8 - Who will get less bench time than you'd expect?

    D'Ambrosio will be the first choice rotation for Skriniar IMO, and if he stays, Nainggolan will see the pitch a lot.

    9 - Best U-23 player?

    I can't believe we have both Bastoni and Hakimi in this team . I'll say Bastoni, no sophomore slump for that guy.

    10 - Best O-30 player?

    Provided injuries give him a break, Sanchez.

    11 - How will we perform against our main rivals (Milan, Juve, Roma, Napoli, Atalanta, Lazio)

    We'll win both against Lazio. Draw one and win one against Milan, Atalanta and Roma. Draw both to Napoli, and lose one and win one against Juve.

    12 - Any other major league predictions (e.g. Will Pirlo survive the season? How will he perform? Who will be the top goalscorer?)

    Pirlo will come 2nd through the sheer quality of the squad he's got, but I don't imagine it will be pretty. Milan will do surprisingly well, but I think will slump and just miss out on CL again. Napoli and Atalanta in the CL, Roma and Milan in the EL and Lazio to have an absolute disaster of a season and come 9th. Sassuolo and Fiorentina will have good season, maybe even make a cup run.

    Ronaldo for the capocannoniere, with roundabout 11 penalties.
