Unfortunately seems this may be the story of this Italy generation. Zaniolo was an amazing talent then boom. Now Chiesa. I have more hope of him returning to his level then Zaniolo.

Both of them rely on twist and turn in high speed. Seems to be fine in the beginning but injuries soon to be happened, especially with Zaniolo who gain much more body mass.

I have faith in Napoli. They have good players. Even their bench is pretty good. They are struggling right now, but they will get stronger with season progression.
Juve on the other hand... No, they are on top of their game right now and they look pathetic. They lost Chiesa. They have more problems long term.

Fiorentina are doing everything they can to make sure Juve finish in top 4.

I don't think Fiorentina are even part of the discussion. This will be just like last year, 5 teams for 4 spots with someone inevitably shitting the bed when it matters to allow Juve to sneak in.

Losing Chiesa should significantly lower their chances of Top 4, they're so bad offensively.

The only question is whether Napoli or Atalanta are the ones who blow it.

sucks that on the end of the day Napoli will be the one that'll choke and get them to that 4th spot.
it will be Atalanta probably. Napoli will do well when Koulibaly and Oshimen are back. I don't see them falling to the fifth place, they have a goood team and are still playing decent football, even without the missing players. I don't think Atalanta or even Milan would draw 1-1 in Torino without half squad.

We are more focused on Scamacca because our priorities changed when we sold Lukaku and, most importantly, when we signed Correa for 30m. Coincidentally that was the moment links with Raspadori stopped.

Our priority now is a Dzeko replacement/backup. We already have a Sanchez replacement in Correa. Else what's his purpose in the squad?


It's really entertaining. Milan finished second last season, have the same coach and spent heavily on the market but their target should only be top 4. Juve have the most expensive coach and the most expensive squad but a top 4 finish should be considered a success. On the other hand, Inter lost their coach, 3 starters and spent only a small part of the funds they raised from sales but somehow they're obligated to win Scudetto.
Who did milan spent heavily on? They broke

Tomori and Maignan cost them almost 45m combined. On top of that they bought Tonali, Ballo Toure, Giroud and a guy called Adli, who they sent on loan to a French team. They also got numerous players on loan like Brahim Diaz, Bakayoko, Messias, Florenzi etc.
All of those transfers cost them 70m according to Transfermarkt, whereas their only sale was Diego Laxalt for 3m lol

Exactly. There's the impression Milan don't spend money but that's not true. They don't offer high wages but they spend a lot on transfer market. Last summer they spent 70m. In 2019/20 they spent around 100m. In 2018/19 they had also spent around 100m.

And in 2017/18 they bought a whole new starting lineup for like 200m and every single one of those players ended up being a colossal failure :lol:
