Best coach ever. People just hate him cause he is a juventino. Give him a 10 mil per year salary and bring him here. He is worth it.

Default Open Letter To Conte

Quote:

Dear Mr. Antonio Conte,

As you awaken this morning, I can hardly imagine what you are feeling. I could not imagine you have awoken with a smile on your face, as anything less than total victory suffices in your eyes. But, perhaps you’ve achieved something far greater and far more meaningful in the grande scheme of things. You turned arguably the most pessimistic group of people in the world, the Italians, into a unified and believing fan base in such a manner that we may never again see.

I, myself, was a member of the doubters, at one point I had even said that you should resign. In retrospect, the underwhelming performances against teams like Malta, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria or England. Maybe it was the squad selection that left everybody from the peninsula scratching their heads. But in the end, after two years of work, the final product was there. You chose and crafted 23 men who would run through a brick wall or storm the gates of hell without question – and probably do it with a smile.

You personify grinta. I don’t believe there is a way you can translate that word into another language other than by showing somebody a 30 second video of you on the touchline. I could hardly imagine what it was like in training. You have your ways, and with three Scudetti, a Coppa Italia, and a heroic European Championship to show for it, very few now will be able to question it with merit.

Throughout this tournament, your men used key words in the interviews such as “unity, spirit, passion, brothers, faith,” the list goes on. We haven’t seen an Italy side this bonded together in a very long time. We witnessed the transformation of several players into gladiators. More so, astounding, is the fact that you did all of this in only a few weeks.

In the end, we conceded two goals in five matches and beat the champions of Europe and took the champions of the world deep into penalties. There’s no question, you turned water into fine wine and won the hearts of every Azzurri fan from across the globe. You did it all your way, through all the doubt, disgust and utter confusion of the media and fans alike. The best compliment I could give you is, you proved everybody wrong.

The future for the Nazionale is at a bit of a crossroads. Many new players are needed to bring back the quality needed to beat the best, and a new era is incoming for the Azzurri. The one thing I hope that is not lost or forgotten from this arduous march that you led for two years is the sacrifice and unity you bred into this side. Perhaps in two years time, with the same attitude and new players, we can say in the end, ‘you were victorious’.

Best italian manager out there after Carlo and Sarri. Takes a massive dump on the fraud from livorno.

We need another top quality winger. İnsigne on the left, D.Costa/Coman on the right, Robbery on the bench would be good.

İnsigne is better finisher than D.Costa.

Considering bundesliga is Bayern's feeder league , the best winger u could think of was insigne?

Please. Draxler or Reus would be way better.

The point is moot, however. Carlo doesn't play with wingers and I doubt bayern will.

The day bayern start raiding players from Napoli is the day they have given up on ambition.

I agree. But can't mask it as some sort of spectacle.

This is why l said l want İnsigne, not Bayern wants him.

Draxler is inconsistent, Reus is counter attack player. Sane is German Robinho. They are not good enough for us.

A full strength Germany would include Khedira, Lahm and Reus/Götze. Also Höwedes wouldn't be in a full strength Germany, and the same might go for Kimmich, Hector. However these last two might be great potentials for the future, along with Draxler and some other youngsters.

Lolno. He got knocked out by Germany. Not Wales. History aside, he was expected to get knocked out. He was expected to get knocked out vs Spain as well. You don't get blamed for losing to a superior team. He was never in a winning position either that some judgement in tactics cost him the game.




Because he isn't playing for Napoli to score 12 goals and 10 assists for starters.

But the main point is they didn't have to do anything last season. Deschamps said it best when dropping Nasri for the world cup , "a national team isn't made of the best 23 players but the most functioning 23 players".

Germany was going to have the bulk of the possession today. That meant Italy's pressing would have to be top notch in both attack and defense. No way was insigne going to play an up tempo pressing game.

He was brought on late because Germany were tired and hummels was on a yellow. That was the best time insigne could make a difference - running at tired German legs. Tired because they were kept on their toes by some good pressing from eder, giach and pelle.


Khedira and gomes getting injured that early in the game was unexpected, and conte didn't take advantage of it. You saw how germany were under control when they took the tempo up and scored the goal , luckily for italy gomez got injured. So really he was in a position to do some tactical changes, if he didn't settle for penalties the moment they equalised.

He played exactly the same way even against the likes of irland and sweden. Are swedens midfield that much better than italys, lol.
I give him that he tactically outplayed the belgium coach (one of the worst coach in the tournament). Though It was easier to play against spain as their off the ball movements were almost nonexistent. It was like watching the post barca team without messi.

Anyway this discussion is turning out to be pointless. We simply don't agree..
The only thing i have to say is, congrats to him for getting the best out of eder, giaccherini and pelle.

Lottery in a shootout.
Surprising to see a couple of poor German penalties.
Germany better go on and win it now.
