Not aligning Silva is a professional fault! And only this make him deserved to be sacked.

Trust me this is no knee jerk, I never saw him as worldclass and i think his signing really messed up our plans both on the market and on the field. Before Bonucci, no one ever thought about playing 3 atb but since we signed Bonucci we now have to adapt to a new formation which doesn't suit our best players from last season

I think what we should have done was build on last season instead of trying to change things just to suit an overhyped player. I think we'd have been fine with Mus - Roma pairing had we not gotten Bonucci. Our major failing on the market was failing to get a good LW for our 4-3-3 formation

I know it's still quite early in the eyes of many but loosing this game has killed our chances of finishing top three cause I see us still dropping 6 points in the next two games

I can't really point out a remedy for the next few games cause the squad is a whole lot disjointed as it is but I'd prefer if we could switch back to a 4-3-3 and field a LW that isn't Borini until we can intervene on the market again
The one that bringing up or have the ball to play youngster was Mihajlovic.

Nah, if you're buying that many strikers, Conti and neglect mezz'ali and winger positions then it's a variation of 3-5-2 or nothing.

3-5-2 didn't ruin Suso and Bona, it exposed them for the seriously flawed players they are. Suso needs to improve his stamina/off-ball game, or be upgraded with a better player even if we revert to 4-3-3. Bona was never great at any position.

Breaking News: Reports are coming in that Bonucci was very angry and frustrated after the game, so much so that he choke-slammed Montella on the massage table in the changing room.

So no one is mentioning that Samp played an incredible game and left absolutely no space at all?

Even though samp played like their life depends on it, we should beat these kind of team however it takes.

They did, they have a good technical midfield with the midfield 3 in their 2nd season together and they have 2 experienced Serie A players upfront.

Also they've only played 6 games with a settled midfield line up and we are on game 11 without knowing out strongest/best line up let alone know what our best midfield is.

Could it be that they're fresher because they only played 6 games and we're not used to playing every three days?

Not saying this as an excuse, but there needs to be more patience and time given for us to train and find our best form.

Patience you say!! If we played a good game and lost even by 3 goals margin I would be with you.

We were nothing in the game.. we played like crotone for fuck sake! If we played more games it would be a positive thing and a negative.

Be we have a mastermind who thinks we should rotate until no player knows how the other play!

Fuck Montella

Crap performance. I feel like I wasted my time watching most of this game. Beating up on small teams is nice but if you can't even be competitive against a half decent team then UCL will be a dream. This team has to improve before the points gap with the top teams becomes bigger.

We were outplayed, in both halves. Odd starting & sub & sub timing choices by Montella, again. Refusing to change tactics/ideas despite being outplayed, rigid.

Did the players ignore the coach or did the coach really do nothing until it was way too late?

“Zapata over Musacchio? I chose Cristian because he was physically more suited to defending against Duvan Zapata [his cousin, to whom he gave an ‘assist’ in the first Sampdoria goal].”

This is some dumb shit right here for real.

Italians have a fear of unbalanced CB's against taller forwards. Musacchio is pretty short. I don't think it's that big a deal to have played Musacchio especially since he was already rested.

As the game played out, Samp were by far the fresher team, with the energy which they played with showed that. But we shouldn't be that tired, considering we've rotated the squad so far and outside of Dolla and Kessie, no one else has played double digit games. Also they played mid week like we did, so it shouldn't be used and seen as much of an excuse.

I don't care if Zapata is 6 foot 5 and the world's strongest man. He keeps making mistake aftet costly mistake, but the manager seems to forget when he puts in a few half decent performances. That's something Montella can not do. Play Zapata against Europa league fodder teams.
