    Too Many? :D
  1. Funny day yesterday. We had Kondogbia and Martinez. Now we've lost both. I'm not as frustrated as some. Both were going to be very costly and very risky. Inter have paid over 40 mil and have made him their highest paid player. This is the type of player who isn't a game changer. He'll make you more solid and a better team, but he cost more than Fabregas for example! Martinez? That's a little more frustrating because he is top class but at his age, I think he should be cheaper too. Ibra doesn't look a possibility anymore but I'd take him over Martinez. He would offer guarantees. I'm surprised you rate Sinisa, Napolifan. I would've rather had Sarri though Emery was my first choice.

  5. I don't know if anything like this has ever been thought up but I think it'd be fun to join an English Championship in Div 5 and see how long or if it's even possible to eventually end up with 1 Billion in the bank. Could be done so each person is in a different setup or if only a few people are interested, I think it would be fun to compete against each other on the field as well, though the real winner will be whoever reaches 1 Billion first.
  6. Re: Official Serie A Thread I think he'll leave this summer. They'll be signing a replacement' date=' especially if Pogba is sold. They've already admitted they're going after Dybala, who wants to stay in Italy, over going to a team like Arsenal. He'd leave for a Barca or Madrid, but he wouldn't play there. Even at Arsenal, he wouldn't be the main man like he would be at Juve. Napolifan, what do you think of Sinisa? Milan were linked with him too, but I would be nervous if we landed him. Done a good job at Samp but they have a decent squad, lets not forget. Such poor discipline as a player is probably the reason I wouldn't trust him. Probably unfair and stupid of me to think that though. And you want Benitez to go? I expect he will but he'll arguably be the best Napoli manager in the last 20+ years if they win the Europa. I'd understand if it's because you'll question his commitment for next season. [b']Breakthrough XI of the season:[/b] Sportiello Rugani Romagnoli Glik Soriano Valdifiori Mauri Falque Gabbiadini Dybala Anderson Glik and Gabbiadini were both regulars last year but I think they've improved a lot this season. I know players are slightly out of position too.
  7. Re: Official Serie A Thread A very depressing derby to watch. But there was reason to be positive after the game, with "Mr Bee" apparently signing a deal to take 20% of the club and increase that amount to 70% by the 2016/2017 season. It looks like next season will be the first year since the 70's that there has been no Milan club in Europe! Very impressed and happy with Napoli's performance against Wolfsburg. Unexpected. The last 5 or so years has left me questioning whether Italy's finest can beat even the weakest European teams. It was nice to see a team play like a team, something I haven't seen from Milan in years. But I hope Napoli remain focused, it'd be typically Italian of them to screw the second leg up, somehow! Quietly, Italy is getting stronger. Imagine if Inter and Milan return to their old selves and Lazio spend wisely this summer. It'd certainly become the most competitive league. It already probably is the toughest to get 3 points. With the likes of De Vrij and Felipe Anderson, Lazio have players that they can sell on in the future for big amounts too! New stadiums for some clubs in 1/2/3 years will do wonders too. Juve, Roma, Napoli, Fiorentina, Lazio are strong sides now. A solid group after that of Torino, Samp, Genoa, Udinese...plus Inter and Milan hopefully back to their best make up a good league. I like Sassuolo, Palermo and Empoli too.

  9. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions Cazorla has no chance of hitting 93?
  10. Re: Rags To Riches III - Re-emergence of the minnows Torquay Get Their Man! Vietto replaces Kane. Having sold Kane for £10.9M midweek (£8.5 profit), Baldo moved quickly to snap up his replacement, splashing out £6.2M on 21 year old Argentine Luciano Vietto. The club will be hoping the signing will ensure they reach their target of automatic promotion. "It's a lot of money but he's a huge talent. All the players who have netted as much as he has in La Liga at his age, continued to develop and became the best strikers in the world. We'll be happy enough with him just guiding us to a top two finish." Talisca, Falque and Romagnoli are other notable names joining the ambitious seaside club.
  11. Re: Official Serie A Thread Forza Italia! Keep it up. Torino definitely impressed me the most. The first Italian side to win in Bilbao, from 9 attemps. 7 were defeats! Ended a 5 year wait for an Italian to knock out a Spanish side too. I hope the draws are favourable in the next round. But anyone can beat anyone in this. Far more unpredictable than the UCL.
  12. Re: Luck of the Irish Bringing Serie A to Ireland! A few days into the job at Belfast side Linfield and already Baldo looks close to completing his squad. The Anglo-Italian has stuck to what he knows best and brought in players mostly from England and Italy. Brozovic and Rugani are the stand out names, with international experience already, but the real experience should come from the 31 year old Braafheid, who cost just 2.3 mil. Oliver Kirch is another older player, in an otherwise young squad, but his versatility could be even more useful than his vast experience. Empoli have been raided of their top talents. The club have seen Rugani, Verdi and Valdifiori leave. And considering he's already 28 and only making his debut in Italy's top flight this year, Valdifiori's signing must be seen as the shock of the 3. However, statistics do prove he's among the top 3 midfielders in Italy. Can he carry that form over into this new challenge though?
  13. Re: Luck of the Irish Mcnair 78 Rugani 85 Braafheid 84 Masuaku 83 Verdi 83 Valdifiori 84 Brozovic 85 Ibe 82 29.9 mil on this. Overspent so far.
  14. Re: Fluff's Mixed Nations I'm ready. I've posted on here since the teams were announced. IDK if that was enough. 30 managers should be a fun change. Used to 20 max.
  15. Re: Fluff's Mixed Nations Pedro, I'm gonna word this as nicely as I can. Give me VITESSE!!! Thinking about it, Sparta Praha may have a higher valued squad?
