couldnt find a Pio Esposito thread.
he is playing well at the U19 championship, scored a penalty against Malta.
scored a penalty and then they gave another penalty to another guy, who missed it... Why the fuck do teams do this shit? So fucking retarded.

For anyone who follows the Primavera, who are the biggest current talents that we have? I assume Zanotti is one of them given he made a few first team appearances and is now going on loan.

How are the Stankovic brothers? I believe one of them is a midfielder and had a decent season? He seems really young too, around 17. I think he's also trained with the first team and was on the bench for a few matches. Has anyone followed his season and knows more?

Any other promising players?

Nikola Iliev is very good.Could become great in my opinion. He is bolgarian and played some games for national team. I watched him vs serbia and looked good. Can Use him as left mid or left striker his dreabling and Ball control is something we really need. Another great prospect is Eabenazer A. Who is mead. with great vision,Ball control and tehnic. Looks like Agoume but more agresive

I’m really interested to see how our youth on loan (or the ones we have a buyback right at) will develop this year. I have a feeling a lot of them will make some good minutes.

Stankovic seemingly is the first gk for Samp atm. Zanotti played almost every minute at St. Gallen from Suisse in their first 4 games. Also Fontanarossa starter the first game at Serie B side Cosenza playing the full 90 minutes. Pirola is currently injured, but played a big part for Salernitana past season. Oristanio is currently starting van Cagliari as a striker. We have both Esposito brothers at Samp and Spezia respectively. For Seba it is a ‘do or die’ year at Samp. For Pio, who played 5 minutes last weekend, is it his first senior year at just 18 years old. The Carboni brothers playing at Monza. While Franco maybe can profit from the transfer from Carlos to us. Valentin played a couple of minutes against us past weekend offcourse. And then there is Fabbian at Bologna.

Offcourse not all of them will make it. But I have high hopes for the likes of Fabbian, Pirola, Valentin Carboni and Pio Esposito. Also Oristanio, Stankovic and Zanotti will be interesting to follow. I even didn’t fully give up on Seba Esposito. Really big year ahead for those guys.

Yes it's gonna be interesting follow these guys.

Tho Pirola we sold him to Salernitana. Don't know if there's buyback after this summer anymore (there was one for 13m). I could guess he's not coming back unless he takes clear steps forward.

I like the fact that, for once, these guys have it in their hands and its up to them to make their destiny. Historically it feels like we've been really shit at loaning out youth players to clubs where they will actually play, but your post is a perfect example of why we should be at least a bit more hopeful this year.

I guess the fact we are including options this time around makes it more likely that they will actually get minutes for their club.

Previous cases I remember that failed were usually pure loan deals (Agoume, Esposito in the past, etc.)

Anyone know if Satriano is on loan with option or not?

TBh, I think an option only really helps to incentivise if its a borderline case. If you're 100% sure they will be useful, you'll play them anyway. If you're 100% convinced they're shit, an option doesnt change that


I think we're just finally (a) having better, more capable players, and (b), putting them into teams where they actually have a chance to succeed

I think option plays the part in the squad building and thus in the playing minutes. When the sporting director brings younger player with an option, the player is perhaps given bigger "position" in the squad. Ie. maybe sporting director doesn't bring some more experienced, more expensive player, so that coach is "forced" to use the younger player. Director does this because there's the incentive of the development of the player and then reaping the benefits of the option-buyback-option dynamic.
