    People were unsure about Sensi before he came. When he started playing, everyone fell in love with him. Then his injuries happened and now he's rusty af and most of us said that if he doesn't improve his performance or keeps getting injured, there's no point in redeeming him.

    All of our opinions follow a pretty normal line of thoughts. There's nothing to suggest we don't like Italian players. Barella has been well liked by the majority before & after he came here. It's fine for people to be critical of a shitty performance (like vs Napoli), but that doesn't mean we hate him and think he's shit.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    I didn't actually imply that all Italian players are disliked, that was a question after I made this point on some players.

    Barella is a core player, Bastoni is a kid who's getting into the first team and Sensi was a crucial part of our initial success. Sensi is the only outlier here actually.

    With Gagliardini, Ranocchia, Biraghi, D'Ambrosio, Candreva it's mostly blind hate. They have a role to fulfill, they're not supposed to be the greatest in their position or even top 10. They're good enough and they are playing that way. Same applied with Politano as well.

    People seem to be allergic to these guys and want them gone at every opportunity. And replace them with what? Ashley Young? Karamoh? Dalbert? Victor Moses? Agoume? Come on man, people are being irrational all the time here to express their dislike towards our rotation & backup Italian players. And it's not just because we need to have at least 8/25 Italians on our team, it's because they get super high on fringe players that don't do much more than the afformentioned.

    Ashley Young has been doing okay but so was Biraghi until he ended up being the only choice. Both are limited players and as Cafe said, Young has the luxury of having an actual backup that Conte will trust. Dimarco hardly ever played despite Biraghi being our only other left sided player.

    The biggest problem is that Asamoah has been sidelined for a contract dispute. We wouldn't be having a discussion here if it wasn't for that extension that his agent kept asking for. I wouldn't extend his contract myself, but at least play the guy and stop pretending that he's injured. He stopped being injured almost 1 month ago for fuck's sake! They're leaking out to the press that Asamoah's knee is bust so we will have to sell him. Now please tell me how is that an actual strategy when you have a player earning over 3m annually with a bust knee is available for sale with anyone willing to take him on

    It's hilarious that under Marotta any player who has asked for a contract during winter has ended up with some sort of knee problem to sideline him

    That is unequivocally what you implied you chalk-faced goon.

    This is what I initially said.

    Why would that include Barella? Or Sensi in the start of the season?

    Let's talk about Biraghi in this thread. You can take these fights to somewhere else.
