Bluenine thread openings are now a sure thing! 3pts confirmato.

Seriously, Cagliari is still one of the worst teams result wise( not by team's quality, they have good players) , they will 100% bunker down, I see they have 4 draws straight. It ain't gonna help vs champs. At the end of the 90 minute Nahitan Nandez prolly will say to his coach

" I ain't coming to no damn plane, u can leave without me"

Dumfries got injured against Real and is doubtful for Cagliari.
I thought this and I said it a few times too, hence why our RWB situation was strange v Real but we just got pages of hate v Inzaghi's subs. Thank you for clarifying.

Anyway, we obviously don't take Cagliari lightly but we should expect 3 games, perfect game for Toro to get on the scoresheet and gain some confidence, there have been murmurs of Toro having a niggling injury but I feel this is just to take pressure off him from media/fans.

Let's sail this one away to 3-0 or 4-0.

I wonder if Inzaghi will try one from the Primavera? D’Ambrosio is too slow for that position.

Maybe Inzaghi should switch Dimarco to RWB for this game, and use D'Ambrosio as RCB if De Vrij is still not fit.

When is Darmian getting better?

Lord Darmian
remember that the main taks of our rigth wingback in the upcoming match will be to stop Dalbert, so we need someone reliable.

If it comes to starting both Perisic and Dimarco, then i think we should bring Perisic on the right who can use both legs.

De Vrij is fit. I haven't read any updates about Darmian recently.

It'll definitely be Dambrosio. Shouldn't make a difference. 3-0.

IRRC, he will miss all games this month.

We can play without the RWB, as there is no way Dalberto Carlos does anything good in this game.

Barella has 4 yellows, going into this match. Salernitana and Torino are the next two opponents, just saying......

Cagliari is always one of those really annoying fixtures. I can see us mucking this up somehow.
This game has banana skin written all over it.

- risk of complacency
- continental hangover
- former coach Mazzarri
- former players Keita, Dalbert, Godin and Zappa
- former transfer target Nandez

Not huge, but not insignificant slip up potential here IMO. The bookies are paying a pathetic 1.16 for us to win but I'd put us at a 1.4.
