    Viola - Inter
    Well I for one found yesterdays mauling to be most enjoyable and entertaining to watch, making amends for last week’s travesty of a performance against, La Vecchia Crapola. Speaking of which, I’d like to apologise to all Interisti, for such a beating should have been forewarned. How? I’m not exactly sure.
    Perhaps a video, sending a prior warning message signalling, ‘Welcome to hell’? Hmm, I’m not so sure that would be an appropriate action, for a classy side such as la Viola, after all, what sort of shoddy team would stoop to such douche like actions? That, I wonder indeed.
    Won’t dissect the match much, the score line tells the story, similar to Fiorentina – Rubentus, where Viviano was hung out to dry, such was the case with Handanovic, who made some terrific saves, by doing so, saving the Nerazzurri from further embarrassment.
    Speaking of Inter’s defence (not that I really was, but whatever), how about that Juan ... like the kid, but his actions, not so Jesus like, JoJo should have returned that swinging elbow with a swift kick to the balls.
    Apart from the 4-1 result, there was one other highlight of the match, when the Curva Fiesole was chanting, “il pallone e' quello giallo, il pallone e' quello giallo!” Love it.
    On some individual Fiorentina performances...
    JoJo – If anything, over the past 2 months he’s been, Mr. Inconsistency. JoJo’s the type of player who sometimes fails to see what he has at his own disposal. This Viola isn’t Sinisa or Delio Rossi’s squad of last season, it’s fundamental he stop taking ridiculous shots from 30 yards out, or trying to take on 4 players, and start entrusting faith in other players, they are more than capable of making things happen too.
    Should JoJo, show the same striking display as yesterday, I’ve no quarrel, but really his clinical being from the start of the season has seemed to have rubbed off, maybe yesterday will recreate some of that JoJoGol magic, or perhaps it was the magic of Diego Della Valle being present ...who knows.
    Pek – It’s a fact Fiorentina are a much better side with Pizarro in the side (grazie Roma, again), much of Fiorentina’s downward spiral since January could be attributed to Pek’s absence. That Power Ranger dynamic I’ve referred to Viola’s midfield being before, is broken to pieces without the main gear. Playing Romulo (who should never play a central role), Migliaccio, who’s a more defensive presence, but surprisingly played OK, just won’t suffice, if anything I’m surprised Montella didn’t even give Capezzi a chance.
    That ball Pek played to JoJo in the early stages of the match, throwing off that uncoordinated clown Ranocchia, leaving JoJo on goal, with Hando, which I still can’t believe he didn’t score, was superb.
    Despite my plaudits, I do have a criticism of Pek, which coincidentally would be one of his strong points, of being that guy, who is clutch in holding the ball and orchestrating passes from deep, I’d say bordering on being mild regista, he’s faltered quite a few times recently, losing the ball with ease, twice which having cost Fiorentina, turning into goals on the counter.
    Ljajic – What does one say about Ljajic. Under performing last year, and topped off with the Delio Rossi saga, leaving his future in Firenze in doubt, looks like it’s been the blessing in disguise. Ever since the pre-season friendlies in the summer he’s been a new player, the club’s decision to not sell Ljajic as a course of action was the right thing to do.
    Yesterday he displayed his tremendous amount of technical ability on the ball, his dribbling, and link-up passes was precision at its best. OK, sure he doesn't have the best shot, which is odd, since he has a wicked shot just outside the ’18, in the box, give him a 1 on 1, or a tap in, he usually skies the ball over the goal. In addition, his decision making, still somewhat questionable, but he’s got a good attitude and great work rate in order to continue to improve.
    Cuadrado – On his day, like JoJo, could perhaps be one of the most dangerous players in Serie A. His superb speed, which can’t be matched by many, used with his ability to cut in, or whip in a decent cross, creates absolute turmoil for the opposition, exactly what he did yesterday. Most definitely one of Prade’s best signings, if only he had more sting in that shot of his, matched with accuracy, he could possibly evolve into Cuadrizard?
    2013 hasn't been the kindest to Fiorentina, thus a performance like this was overdue. All I plead for now is a bit of consistency, both in the results and player performance, especially from JoJo.
    If Della Valle pulls the plug in the summer, which I’m 85% sure he will be, need JoJo’s value to be soaring as high as possible, to bring in the best possible replacement. Andrea Della Valle said he won’t accept anything less than €30m, for the first half of the season of the opinion he could have got more than that, as of right now, I’d say he’s playing more like a €20m player.
    Avanti Viola.

    Re: Reality Check
    Am I the only one who thinks it's time for P/E deals?
    Simply put no one wants to sell for cash. You offer any club cash only for a player even one they dont use and they laugh at you?
    We all know what happens at the moment is just a slow version of P/E.
    Clubs will agree a 2 for 1 deal or straight swap and will just sell the players to each other.
    All it's doing is limiting deals. Which is making the market stagnant aside from forced player sales and even they dont go for just cash!
    Another player goes to the team who are forced to sell the player?
    I know we're trying to be more realistic but until clubs are willing to actually sell players for cash we may aswell just use P/E.
    For example Frozens Real Madrid (sorry to single you out mate it's just an example)
    41 players 3 on loan. 7 players with concerns about being loaned/games yet no one for sale for cash and I don't blame him with 120M in the bank!
    I just think that if so much money is floating about the set up it becomes useless. Let's be honest lads who here actually needs cash? Like has an actual need for it in order to do deals?
    I love this set up but I do think we need to sort this out.

    Re: The Official Serie A Thread
    De Laurentiis has made it pretty clear he's a big fan of Icardi, apparently we were interested in him before christmas and had a massive €12m bid rejected by Sampdoria yesterday. To be honest if they want more than that then they are being greedy, there's no doubting he's an outstanding talent but two fantastic performances don't warrant such a big price. It seems the club are keen to re-open negotiations at the end of the season.

    I think he can too, it will be interesting to see if he follows Perin's footsteps and moves up to a bottom-half Serie A side next season. His reflexes are amazing, some of his reaction saves from that video are top class.

    Quite right which is what makes me even more of the opinion that we don't need another CB. The fact we've got a regular for Argentina in Fernandez who is struggling for game time shows we have plenty of depth; Campagnaro, Britos, Gamberini, Cannavaro, Fernandez and Uvini is a wealth of riches! Adding another player to the equation doesn't make sense IMO, especially an average player like Silvestre who hasn't a single cap to his name for Argentina, where's the logic in that lol?!

    Cavani's contract expires in 2017 and the release clause is set on 62 mil euros (or maybe pounds, not sure) so why on earth would napoli accept 30 mil from arsenal? Plus no offence, but Arsenal recently isnt really very appealing, i mean, in recent years even Napoli has won more trophies than Arsenal... The last time Arsenal won a trophy Napoli was still in Lega Pro 1 (the english equivalent would be League One).

    Most of Inter's changes were warranted.
    I agree that Cavani and Hamsik got the changes they truly deserve. I'm kind of surprised Gargano didnt get a raise tbh, I feel like he is very underrated.

    Thanks Jozua for your brilliant reply too. A big reason why I love this thread, the regular posters here really know their stuff and post good insights.
    I'm taking a huge gamble by selling Ozil for Pato and Muriel in a very very competitive setup for footballing reasons, its a horrible deal but if Muriel can turn out decent I would be elated as my forwards are pretty poor atm.
    Thanks mate.
