    Perisic's problem is not about his defensive inadequacy, but his offensive ineffectiveness instead. It is quite acceptable for wingback to not fully excel in defence because his main job is to attack. Most top wingbacks are attacking-minded players with below average defence skill like Hakimi, Reguilon, and Alonso before Chelsea used backfour. However they manage to make up their defensive weakness by their attacking prowess.

    Meanwhile, Perisic offers nothing in both ends. He doesn't take on defender, he doesn't run behind defence, he doesn't deliver dangerous cross, he doesn't cut inside to shoot, he doesn't attack the box when Hakimi crosses. He only runs and passes sideways. That's all. Even 35 years old Young still attempts to cut inside or to get at the end of cross but somehow Perisic cannot.

    Lautaro's goal against Lazio was a rare case when he tried something useful. And look, we still managed to score a goal even if he failed to skip past his defender cleanly. If he still cannot display anything significant in few more matches then we should try to offload this unmotivated deadweight ASAP.

    You can count how many noneffective abilities Perisic has, he is still the best LWB we have.

    Not hard to be best if you have only one competitor But I am still unsure if he is better than Young tbh.

    That's why people here argue about him. Is he better than Young? If you have to ask yourself that question then maybe you shouldn't watch football.

    He's a better player, I'm not sure he's a better wingback. At least he hasn't proved to be. I guess we'll find out.

    We really should have pushed for the Marcos Alonso deal to be completed.

    This team is a LWB and actual DM away from being a top team IMO.

    Games like yesterday would be a lot easier if we had two attacking WBs that could stretch the opposition, instead of having only Hakimi. That way if Hakimi is out we could have had Alonso-Darmian/Young/D'Ambrosio and maintain that 'one attacking, one defensive' WB approach we have, or chuck them both on when we need to unlock a defense.

    Would also highlight Eriksen's passing much more than now with more players making forward runs. For example, he played an absolutely out of this world through ball for Darmian against Genoa.

    At the moment, when Hakimi is out, we're essentially shit out of luck out wide because Perisic has not taken to that role at all. Darmian is a much bigger goal threat than Ivan has been, and Darmian is supposed to be the 'conservative' one .

    TBH, dont get too hopeful for two attacking WBs - even treble era Inter didnt have two attacking WBs. It's unbalanced - though if you're ever going to make it work, 3 at the back is a good formation to make it work in.

    Te quality Hakimi brings in at RWB is notable and impressive, though. I just worry two of him - esp with our current midfield - is asking for trouble. It might be a case where with a proper DM, we could make it work, so you have 3 CBs, a DM covering, then the WBs playing wing-forwards on attack.

    Be interested to get some other thoughts on this. Nonetheless, a GOOD LWB is a must; attacking or not.

    We should try snd get Junior Firpo on loan from Barca in January. He obviously isn’t going to breakthrough there and he played his best football at a wingback at Betis.

    I don't really want to talk to Barca, maybe ever again. I know they just let Vidal go, but I think every time we approach them they're going to ask for Lautaro even though they can't afford him.

    As for two attacking wingbacks, I think we'd only see it when we're behind or when we have all the ball anyway. Unless, like you said, we get a Kante type, we'd be too exposed.

    Imo we need a cb more than a dm. We all saw what happened when Skriniar and Bastoni were out at the same time. Perhaps Vanheusden could be that cb.

    Not only games like yesterday. Like i have said before, you need proper wingbacks to make this system work. They're even more important than midfielders in this formation. Sadly we only have Hakimi and 35-year old Young. Darmian is very limited and Perisic can't play that role.

    I think DM is more important. we need a player to cut the ball before facing our 3 cbs. we often get caught on the counter because all 3 midfielders go so high and can't recover.

    Agree, we give counters way too much, and such counters where opponent wingers/forwards can face our CBs with ball at their feet and going forward.

If Pinamonti stays with the club I will wager that he scores less than five goals this year.

    I completely agree! We definitely need a CB! Maybe get Godin back from Cagliari? He is already familiar with Conte’s tactics so if we sign him in January he won’t need much time to settle in. But man, that would funny
    Ajax just thrashed Juve!! Fuck whoever uses the 'experience' excuse for signing bunch of mediocre 30+ year olds who do nothing other than laying in the treatment room and demanding high wages.

    Thing is this would probably be a good deal compared to what we re going to do. Watch us pick up some scrub just so we can make up the numbers and we re probably gonna pay a transfer fee so that the godin sale was utterly useless cause it did not even save us money.

    I disliked us getting rid of godin from the get go but this fucken deal gets worse with every day that passes (every time kolarov plays LCB).
    It s just grossly incompetent...

    Also still fully blaming conte for it.
