Fully agree with this Napoli fan on Reddit re: latest Roma drama:
Quote:
Unpopular opinion which actually isn’t so unpopular in Italy, in fact the majority of the online comments in the Italian media say what I’ll summarize below.

From an outsiders perspective it’s easy to blame the American ownership. But Roma has been rotten to the core far before they came (Sensi presidency, anyone?). If anything, Pallotta has made it a far more modern club - pushing for a stadium, cleaning up the image of the team, pushing away violent fans, not letting the ultras make the rules. This whole “they’re trying to get rid of Romans” diatribe is a rehashed expression of governing classes in Italy (at every level, from government to micro-organizations) reluctant to cease power and get with the times.

Totti was never cut out to be a director or a company man, he loves the spotlight too much. He was never meant to be more than a PR figure. He can barely speak Italian, let alone English but somehow expected to be the man in charge from the get go. He has no qualifications and took no intermediate steps (like courses or classes) to become a successful ex-player manager, like Nedved for example.

Despite his achievements as a player, he has always caused drama on the team, especially in the last few years. Remember when he held a press conference against Spalletti who was running training at the same time? They put up with his bullshit until he was 40 and still gave him a hero’s goodbye.

Roma just shed some of its most problematic weight.
well, maybe not the last bit. Totti probably caused a lot of damage once again. I wouldn't be surprised to see yet another fan boycott, this time involving more than just ultras.

Giacinti is straight fire, good to see her leading the line for Italy today.

He wants cr7 to break Higsys goalscoring record

Also mentioned how he wants to get more out of Costa

For once in my life i'm envious of juve

This guy got 91 points out of the fodder at Napoli. It's scary thinking what he can do with the juve squad.

Adaption is key. Juventus won't be playing in like Sarri's Napoli did in the first months of the season. Also does he have the Champions League mentality to win it for Juventus?

Will also be interesting to see which regista he will choose (Pjanic?). No Jorginho in Sarri's system for the 1st time since 2015

Sarri will fail in CL.

Allegri will remain their most successful manager of the last 20 years.

My team of last season.. kept forgetting to do this, but here we go:

-------Quagliarella--------Cristiano-----

--------------------Papu-----

-----Krunic---Freuler---Fabian---Hateboer--

------------Izzo---Acerbi---Koulibaly---

-------------------Cragno-----------

An ode to Atalanta's style..

Defense and attack kinda picks themselves I think, with Ilicic and Duvan Zapata the only ones who can justifiably complain.

Midfield/offensive wingback was the most difficult bit, with so many players performing very well, but no truly legendary season by anyone. Pjanic, Bennacer, Veretout, Lazzari, Gosens, Zielinski, Sensi, Lirola.. all had great seasons.

Manager - Since it's Atalanta's style, Gasperini. But I still think what Sinisa accomplished in the last few months is extraordinary, and he should be a close 2nd.

Nice list. I prefer Castagne as a player to Hateboer, although he is a good choice too and Castagne spent a number of games on the left.

Can't argue with Quagliarella to be fair, although I really liked the way Zapata played this season.

Bakayoko had a few great games, he did not have a great season by any yardstick. Only Milan players who come close are Piatek and Donnarumma. Piatek behind Cristiano, Quags and Zapata. Gigio behind Cragno, Dragowski and then in a crowded field with 3-4 good goalkeepers.

I liked Castagne last season, but I wanted an Empoli midfielder without question. That midfield was great to watch.

Genoa and Udinese are building some nice teams. Would be my dark horses to reach Europa League next season.

Genoa have:
- Signed Cristian Zapata on a Bosman deal
- Andrea Pinamonti on a permanent deal
- Antonio Barreca on loan
- Signed Sinan Gumus for free
- Redeemed Andrei Radu (GK)
- Romulo returning from his loan at Lazio
- Polish midfielder Filip Jagiello (Piatek 2.0?)
- Reportedly close to sign Marco Benassi from Fiorentina

On top of this, they appointed manager Aurelio Andreazzoli, who did really well with Empoli during his 2 stints last season.


While, Udinese have:
- Confirmed the stay of manager Igor Tudor
- Signed defender Rodrigo Becao for a bargain fee (€6.2m)
- Signed Mato Jajalo for free (from Palermo)
- Despite a poor season, Jakub Jankto will return from his loan at Samp.
- Signed De Maio from Bologna for €1M.
- Could their 2 best players last year, De Paul and Musso (?)

Also, would like mention Bologna, who confirmed Mihajlovic’s stay last season (after he incredibly took them from relegation zone to 10th place just in some weeks. They have so far:

- Signed Jerdy Schouten for €2.5M
- Signed Stefano Denswil for €7M
- Reedemed Orsolini for €15M
- Reportedly close to Andreas Skov Olsen for €5M
- Looks to retain their best players such as Pulgar, Dijks and Orsolini.
- Close to signing Takehiro Tomiyasu for €7M
- The Mihajlovic effect (as i mentioned).

The battle this year for top 6 between Juventus, Napoli, Inter, Milan, Lazio and Roma (Atalanta too?) will be exciting - as always. But I’m solely recommending you to keep an eye out on those teams, who could/will surprise a few next season.

Keep an eye out for Samp as well. Already signing some unknown young players from other leagues. They have a history of great scouting in recent years. Di Francesco is a perfect appointment to grow young players and build on Giampaolo's work.

I'd have them as early dark horses for top 7.

Definitely Sampdoria, but I feel that they're in the same category as Torino and Fiorentina as they're all almost obligated to fight for Europa League qualification every year.

The teams that I mentioned are teams that heavily struggled during large parts of last season and could make a surprise turn & do well this upcoming season.
