Actually when Sensi is not injured and fully fit, he is our best midfielder.
I think best is a bit extreme, but he definitely has skills. I just wonder if his body is up to playing at the intensity needed - professional, Serie A is gonna be a bit different to a random friendly

Don't have one.
the team is the same shit as last seaon. Shit defending and still can't finish... And Thuram won't help with that.
I would say we will have better depth, but It's questionable how much it will affect the overall picture of our season. It may be significant, it may be not, given all other faults we have.

I think we're selling Thuram in January.

Dude is just a hype man.

Lol, where's the guy who told me, after saying Thuram has shown absolutely nothing so far, whether I've watched the same game? It was the one against Al Nassr. Sadly I've been paying attention and this guy literally screams mediocre. Hope I'm delusional, I honestly do.

You're not delusional, he is just taller less technically gifted Politano.

This is the second preseason in a row where we don't look good physically. Last season it beautifully carried into our season and fucked us royally. Let's see if it happens this year...
It will. There are six days until the first game. It's also Inzaghi's teams' regular trait.

And here I am, thinking - that actually doesn't sound that bad. This team and especially this transfer window have finally broke me.

I've just watched the highlights. We created several chances and should've scored at least 7 if we had forwards who can actually hit the target. I honestly think Thuram is a decent player but he was a bit poor today, that sorry excuse for a shot he had after that Lautaro pass disgusted me. He needs to get his act together FAST.

I have a feeling our midfield will carry the team this season which is why I'm hoping we can get Samardzic signed.

And how did Kamada, Retegui and Samardzic play there?

Some people shit on Thuram, but I think his existence gave more shooting chances for the midfield or I should say rest of the team in short; I think his focal point isn't scoring btw. It is more a point for forward passing - providing more than just a target man, like he can run into space to receive and he can also retain possession not in a static way like Lukaku, force movements for the opponents. He is rather very good for the team, especially if we are playing 2 strikers; he is definitely not a world beater right now, but he has potential to play like Kluivert if needed, however, don't think our team is trying to set up like that.

I don't see how this is a problem, cause normally we won't need a striker to score 20+ goals if the goal scoring spreads across the team a bit more even. For Lukaku under Conte, we pretty much create all the chances for the strikers, which is a very different approach, but we can only play like that if the strikers are at a certain caliber, which I have to give some credit to Lukaku here, but in modern days, we don't need a striker like that, and most strikers aren't like that, and it can still work.

Also keep in mind he is still integrating to the team.

Didn't watch a minute of this preaseason. Mildly curious to see how team will look on Saturday. Hope there will be some good streams cause I'm on vacation and watching on my mobile phone is the only option.

We looked average most of the time, and looked really good with Sensi and Frattesi on the pitch. Oh, and Cuadrado looks like somebody Inzaghi will put on every game in the last 25 minutes to destroy opposition.
