Its mercato time. We shouldn’t be having logical conversations. We should be getting upset over any player that doesn’t come.

Matchweek 17 and still only fielded a full XI once against Napoli (if you count Rebic as RW over Leao starter). It's really sad.

We *might* get Saele back for tomorrow, but now Theo and Hakan missing. They will be out at least 10 days now. Rebic and Krunic we have no idea on when they return. Bennacer and Gabbia still out for a week or more at least. It's never-ending.

I'd like to see how other teams we compete against would handle such losses week in and week out.
I try to look at it optimistically. Without the injury crisis we wouldn't have had opportunities to consistently field players like Kalulu, Tonali, Brahim, Hauge, etc. They're now firmly part of the squad playing important minutes and greatly improving the team. This really helps team spirit, since everyone feels like they've seriously contributed.

Sometimes easy passes are not available.

True, but it'd also be nice to have our full squad and rotate players to keep others not so fatigued. That, and have a much stronger chance at winning every game than we already do.

For me its not a big deal having two RCD but if i wanted to be picky then its more about tackling than passing.

Yes. Could maybe try Calabria LB and Kalulu as a marauding RB at some point in the game too.

Yes, why doubt that? Very lightweight three behind Ibra but he's back at least.

I'm still not sure many people realize how important Mandzukic can be for us. Imagine that monster with fighting off the scraps that Ibra plays him into, or hounding down defenders with Rebic, or being put on next to Ibra if we need a goal late in the game... So many options.

Yeah, I mentioned that it's easier to pass to the FB. But again, it's all about what you need as a team. Pep values this greatly because he needs his defenders to constantly play under pressure, high, and to play progressive passes without fear. Any advantage he can get to improve this, he'll pay to get that. I'm not saying this applies to everyone since most teams don't need to do this, so they can get away with two right footed CBs.

We play out from the back sometimes so having Romagnoli able to easily pass forward to central areas quickly under pressure, that's important to us. Him being able to quickly play across to Calabria on the other side is also an advantage to break the press. These things weren't as fluid when we played Gabbia LCB. We were constantly under pressure in that zone because teams tried to exploit him. Kessie basically played as a LB when we had Gabbia, all so we have an easy pass for him when needed. Sure Kessie dropped back often all year, but it was extreme when we had Gabbia at LCB.

I'm not worried because we (for now) still have a good option off the bench for every position, besides CF unless Rebic is back suddenly or Mandzukic is rushed in.
