    Apparently he's gone balls to the well and is playing with 3 creative midfielders and is advocating a young forward line, it's kind of like him playing himself (since he had that no10 role) which is usually frowned upon in Italy. Kudos to him for trying something new, will it work? Who knows but his philosophy seems to be fuck balance just field the best 11 and hope things go wrong.

    This observation is completely off the seat of my pants since I haven't seen a single Italy game (I really dont care about international football until a tournament rolls along).

    He's at a bit of an advantage being that the team just hit rock bottom; he has more freedom to be experimental with less consequences. If he was taking over a WC winner, this wouldn't fly.

    True, but since 2008 other coaches like Lippi, Prandelli and Conte had a similar opportunity i.e. they inherited disasters. Apart from Prandelli to some extent, they still largely ignored youth and focussed on results.

    Credit where its due, Mancini has shown balls with his attacking, inexperienced line up which is largely focussed on talent and potential. We have been crying out for such a revolution for a long time now. Azzurri need this, coz even if the results don't come initially, at long last Italy are starting to build something for the future.

    He became a symbol for non watchable football.
