didn’t watch the Milan game. I’m assuming it was a usual opponent giveaway at the end of season or did Milan actually deserve the three points for once?
Fiorentina just played a high line against Leao and Chukwueze even after equalizing. Poor coaching

I'm beginning to think Italiano is one of those Bielsa-like hopeless idealists who has his way of playing and will either live or die with the sword. It makes for more open games, which I guess is what the average person prefers, but it sees Fiorentina with a 5-3-8 record this season against the teams above them in the table, and only one of those wins coming against a team sitting in the top 5 right now.

Bologna well on track to make it a two point deficit from Juventus with a head-to-head remaining. Juve going 1-4-4 in their last nine games will do that but damn.

This is what I wanted.

Heat and pressure on Rube. Bologna only 2pts away, if Roma & Atalanta win their games they will be 5 and 6 pts away with 8 games still to go. Rube still has @Bologna, @Roma to visit.

Also Tudor totally outplayed Allegri, tomorrow there's Coppa semi 1st leg.

They are in deep crisis. For us, really fun to watch.

Lecce looks like they could score 2 or 3 today

Roma are utter trash so far. They're lucky that Lecce couldn't score.

if juve should end with risking to lose 4. place , then i hope we dont get 5 cl spots this season so that they only need to get 5 to get EL. Beucause i don't think they will end sixt, 5. is already hard we need 2 teams to make a lot of points, thats already difficult if you ask me. Bologna Atalanta and Roma, all 3 should win almost every game, it's hard. Bologna + one of Roma-Atalanta is possible maybe.

Poetic justice if Calha is the sole goalscorer against Milan.

Milan has Lecce H, @Sassuolo

We have @Udinese, Cagliari H

We have to win both. Its not certain that we'll celebrate at the derby. But its Calabria's nightmare. He's the captain too. That captain's armband will be passed on before kick off and it arrives back to Calabria lol. Noone will want it on that evening.

They will do anything to not lose against us, I'm sure. Especially after the 5-1 trashing.

With current results, Pioli is likely staying at Milan, it might be good for us actually. Not sure Juve can get rid of Allegri after this season because they also have to deal with others big money bag carrier like Vlahovic, let’s see.

Juve can afford to do what they want
They just broke their "no recapitalisation" promise because things were so dire.

It'd hurt the shareholders but money isn't gonna be a problem for them sorting out short term issues. They won't be able to invest heavily into the squad for example though.

Don't have one.

This is what I was saying a few weeks ago when people were cheering against milan and hoping they completely collapse. I was hoping they could finish the season strong, cos that would be enough for their unambitious owners to confirm pioli lol.

Milan cant find a coach better than Pioli. He won a Scudetto and 8x points this season with a mediocre squad.

Good for us is they sacking him.

I don't understand their hate for Pioli. He's not the best coach in the world but he did a great job at Bbilan in terms of result (even won Scudetto, although mostly because we choke).

Whenever they win, they give all the credits to fucking Ibra, but when they fail, it's Pioli's fault.
