Our magic number is currently 11. If we beat Udinese, it goes down to 8. It can be reduced further to 5 with a win against Cagliari, and in that scenario (independent of what Milan do), we're in position to clinch directly with a derby win against Milan.

If we drop any points in the next two games, then unless Milan drop points against Sassuolo next week (unlikely), the derby clinching scenario is no longer mathematically possible. In the past, a draw and a win would've reduced it to 7, which could've meant a derby win would be enough because win (3) + Milan loss (3) + clinching the tiebreaker (1) would've = 7, but the tiebreaker no longer exists, a tie results in a 39th game being played.

Bologna with an endlessly disappointing draw against Frosinone.

Another year where Juve will sneak into CL spots thanks to the ineptitude around them, rather than their own merit.

Motta to Rube ( Milanista Longo)

This is bad news. I hoped Allegri will stay 1 more year.

Their big gap to the 5th team was too good to stay that way. Their draw makes the fight for the CL spot more exciting now.

Romano reported also that Allegri out after the season.

At the end, he looks much better than Pinamonti. I recall that here was a debate about who is better, and some people believed hard in Pinamonti.

Iirc I was the only one prefer to keep Pinamonti lol. But I never said he was better. I said using him 0$ were better than 30m for Scammacca, totally different points.

Yeah they are having the same goals. Not worth the price difference.

You're missing the nuance of the accounting. Selling Pinamonti for 20M provided an immediate positive impact to Inter's profitability. Signing Scamacca for 30M would impact us over 5 years. Unfortunately, we're always more concerned about the immediate future.

That's without even getting into Scamacca having a world's more technical ability. The players have nothing in common from a gameplay standpoint.

At the time of the debate (2022) Pinamonti was still ours. So 20m for him a year later shouldn't be in the context.

I would have been utterly stupid if I suggested refusing such price for a mediocre player. I only wanna keep Pina coz he costed us nothing.

We scammed Sassuolo as much as they scammed West Ham, that's it.

I don't understand your point. We always had to sell Pinamonti for the capital gain. We had no other choice.

Fiorentina look bad at defense as usual. I don't know why ADL wants to get Italiano for the next season. If the rumours about him are true of course.
