No, he was a coach I had always wanted but man, we were so out of ideas that last six months. Thanks, pass.

We had a horrible midfield back in 2018. But also, would he want to play 352? I doubt it

Congrats to the new NT coach of Italy!

Now I'm going to believe that he already knew Mancini was going to the Saudis

Why is he a dumbass? He won Serie A with a team nobody expected to win. Can you explain to me why, apart from choosing certain players that aren't up to par in your opinion, is he a dumbass?

Yes, he won a league with Napoli, a top 4 team. You acting like he wont the league with fucking Sassuolo here. Also i said in the post why he is a dumbass and if you watched Mancini and Cristante play over the years, you would know that they dont even deserve to be in the national team.

Pretty much everyone picked Napoli to finish outside the top four last year.

Pretty sure they still had a great team and it definitely was not a big shock for them to win. I remember in my predictions before the season mentioning them leading the league, until Spalletti chokes and lucky for them that didn't happen. So, for me not a surprise at all.

It was quite impressive how he won the league with Napoli last season despite of many changes in their team. Definitely not something like Ranieri did with Leicester but is still a great achievement considering how difficult is to accomodate new players and tactics once you're doing an overhaul in the team. They even played the best football in Europe that season.

That's completely on Spallo. Credit must be given where it's due. I predicted them as candidates for top4 but no way as potential Scudetto winners.

Also Osimhen plays like possessed ever since. He was good before, but not this good.

I love this part: "You have to come to the Nazionale with your eyes that are laughing and your heart beating and you stay together like a pack of wolves that walk in a single file to push their teammate ahead and not leave anyone behind.

The Italians want a Nazionale that is tough and responsible, solid and brave."

Not sure about the way he is going about it though, people can bond in many ways.
