I hope Pavard breaks into the first eleven by January.

Frattesi on the other hand gonna have to wait for Mkhitaryan to die.

I’m putting money on Klaassen being the first midfield sub. It might be the easiest money I’ll ever make.

Also Nico Gonzales has been in terrific form to start the season. Fede and Bastoni need to be on top of their game for this one.

>signs 13 new players in a window
>plays the same line up except for 2 players
But why should we change just because of the chnage? This mercato was anyway for addressing the depth.

Pavard will of course take his starting spot at some point, let him train with the team more than one day.

From the outside I don't see reasons to change the starting XI. Our game works, no one needs a breather yet. I would see Frattesi starting instead of Mhki if Mhki is not fit to start, other than that no reason to do any changes. Now's the time to just solidify our game and rack up the points. Don't fix it if it ain't broken.

Yeah. The only additional summer signing worth considering giving a start is Frattesi, based on Mkhitaryan's fitness. Why would we ever start Arnautovic, Cuadrado, Augusto, or Bisseck this early in the season? Pavard needs the international break to integrate himself tactically.

I wouldn't worry too much about Fratessi not starting yet. If you look at all the big clubs, the new buys are all starting on the bench, with the exception of ones that are directly replacing the players who left. There is only one game per week hence most coaches do not want to rotate.

Milan: Loftus-Cheek, Reijnders, Pulisic in place of Tonali/Bennacer (injured)/Saelemaekers (or J. Messias). Their most expensive player in Chukwueze has played less than 60 minutes so far.
Us: Thuram/Sommer in place of Onana/Lukaku (or Dzeko)
Napoli: None of their new signings are starting
Lazio: Kamada in place of Sergej
Juventus: Weah in place of Cuadrado, and Cambiaso has been starting in place of Kostic who looks to be a bench player now.
Roma: Parades in place of Matic. Aouar has started a few games, last one in place of L. Pellegrini who had an injury and another one as they sometimes play a midfield 3 instead of midfield 2 for most of last season.
Atalanta: New signing Bakker has 0 starts and Ruggeri has started every game. Scamacca and De Ketelaere just started their first game, but they also sold D. Zapata who was a starter (Hojlund also left). They do play Kolasinac as it looks like Toloi lost his starting spot.

Thats fine and all, but i dont give a fuck what other serie a teams are doing with their players. Frattesi cost 35M and is a better player than a 35 year old Mkhitaryan, so i want him to start. He also performed very good in the preseason, so there is no reason not to start him.

Frattesi is a long-term signing. He will surely get his playing time, and quite a lot actually. There is aboslutely no reason to rush into things and come up with premmature claims.

Mkhi has been essential to our success last season. Frattesi is a hot prospect but he's not a better player than Mkhi yet.

You need to calm down for once.

Had no idea Kolašinac is playing for Atalanta.

Guttingly I'm at work but will make it home for the 2nd half. Hopefully we're 2 up by half time, feeling good about the game.

And of course...

What disrespect to Mkhitaryan. I wonder what are all these accolades that make Frattesi a better player than Mkhi? Being younger?

Trust the fucking process and take a breather. You are panicking on a weekly basis now, even tho we started the season with two clean sheet wins

As wera rightly said - it's game 3 out of 38... Have some patience.

Frattesi will play when the time comes and it will come. Even Pavard will need some time to adjust. If we can't beat Fiorentina without the two of them, then we're fucked.

First, truly competitive match of the season imho. Interested to see how the team is getting it together, and to see if Inter gets the lead then goes into a shell like the last match or goes for the kill. Probably not, that appears to be the way Inter rolls. Forza Inter.

Don't give a flying fuck who starts, just want a convincing performance against the Viola who in recent years play like winning against us will solve cancer. of course I'll settle for 3 points regardless of how.

Big game for Sommer and our defense as we usually concede against them. Clean sheet would be hella nice.

Just pay attention to Nico and Bonaventura, somehow they always get in scoring positions against us.

Time for Sommer to prove himself to the faithful.
