Hey mate! I was looking for you yesterday. Congrats for the win!

I think you will like this. Enjoy. :D

I swear everytime Macedonia tryed something, my mind was like: yeah it's over now, see... before he was shooting i already was mentaly prepared to get fucked in some second, it was in the air, i knew that it could happend even if they don't had much opportunities...

Im wondering if this ever happend that the Euro cup winner misses the World cup and how many times it happend. Normally it should be like the europa league, if you win the tournament you are qualifed for the CL. But we anyway don't deserve it, loosing to North Macedonia is really ridiciolous, Sweden was not that bad if we compare them with North Macedonia.. in 4 years we will probably miss the WC against Malta or something like that :lol:

"The explanation is very simple. I've been saying for a long time that we've been copying Guardiola's football for 15 years. We play football that uses passes to the side, we're always sending ourselves to the ground, and even a mediocre team like that of Macedonia, at a physical level, was superior in dynamism, strength and determination."

"Everything is clear. Until we understand that the model to copy is the German one, we will not succeed, because if we want to play like the Spaniards, who have superior technique, we will not be able to. We were always at 50%. We have to copy the German model in terms of determination, vertical play and depth."

Don't have one.
This guy is a Gobbi but he is absolutely spot on here. Very interesting thread. Sadly I don't see anything changing. Where has all the exciting youngsters in Italy gone?

Yep, that's the majority of the problem right there. I think people in italian fa are mentally stuck in late 90 early 00 when they were still trying to compete with leagues in spain and england. That's why you have that kind of strange pressure of playing older players instead giving chance to youngsters. Too much of a pragmatical approach without contemplating about future, imo.

In reality that ship sailed long ago, the best thing to do now is to accept the fate and turn to yourself similar to what germany and bundesliga did.
Forget about instant results and competing to be top two or three leagues in europe, just concentrate on giving chances to younger players.

I mean ... Italy is out... .maybe US and Colombia next week... fk... haha don't know who to cheer for in Qatar? Maybe Korea :) (my wife is korean)

Issue with Italy is they don't give Italians a shot in the league. Its the issue with alot of Big euro leagues other than Germany. Until they start giving more Italian players a shot this kind of BS is going to continue to happen.

Inter and Italy in general usually treat players as a senior one after himself got 23 or older....deal with it....

Also Greece failed to qualify to 2006 World Cup after winning 2004 Euro.
thats true.. problem is we are not grece or denmark. For them it's accetable to miss WC, even as EC winner. For Italy no, specialy not 2 in a row, its embrassing.


I still can't believe it honestly. Some week ago i was thinking about that Italy who could not pass the group with New zeeland Paraguay and Slovakia.. can't believe that we are still doing this bad now, and are getting elimnated from fucking Macedonia. The whole world is laughing at us.

As a fan of the Azzurri, keeping Mancini and continuing the project is the best thing for NT. But I honestly believe he will resign.
