Last season we used to apply pressure to our opponents in their half and it worked well for us. This season we're letting them take the initiative and it's led us into this situation. Why change tactics? As soon as the opponent gets the ball we go into a 4-5-1 with all of our team behind the half line.

If players can finish sitters and not make "individual mistakes" and score against superman then at that point would we even need Gattuso as a coach?

Imagine your entire board of directors decided to come and watch your team play against a low-tier club like Empoli, and you have nothing to field except Borini as a CF. If the pressure wasn't on before, it most likely is now.

I really do think Gattuso has had a positive effect on the team and our play but I think he needs to introduce more dynamism in the team. At the moment the 4-3-3 is very predictable, our attack comes from the wings because we don't have the passing quality to cut through. The CF is either dropping to dictate play toward the wings, or picking up scraps from the attacks coming from the wing.

I can understand the principles of playing from the back, but you really need to build a team that has the swagger and confidence to pull that off. Just don't think we have that.

Individual errors have cost the team, thats not on Gattuso. Wot is on him is the team selection and general strategy... poor selection, play has no rhythm, no on-field cohesion even the sub choices and timings are awful.

He's not entirely responsible for the individual errors because he has no total control over the players on the pitch. He is 100% responsible for his failfish macro management though. If not him then IDK who is.

Suso: "It is true that we are a young team, but we must grow as fast as possible. Gattuso has no responsibility, however, these things depend on us. We need to be more careful and focused, without being afraid."
Suso to Sky: "I agree with Mister Gattuso. We have the play style of a big team, but not the mentality. We have to be able to take care of a lead and be more of a unit on the pitch, in that sense. It's only a matter of time and a bit of fortune."
Forza Rino

Just shows how close the team is to Mister

We need to score 2 or 3 before we shut up shop, and we can’t expect to keep the door closed for 45 minutes...

Inzaghi also used to have us try & just defend after going 1 - 0 up, even if we scored in the 5th minute, it never worked then & he tried it a whole season, please Rino, hope we are not going down that road again... also that makes for boring football...

we are trying to get the second goal though and creating at least 4-5 good chances per game. we're just not clinical enough which in turn makes us tired and then we concede. all the games this season, we were better than opponents for at least for 60-70% of game. hakan, suso, kessie, samu needs to find their shooting boots or else we will struggle to maintain our lead.

90% of our games this season:
- play very well and dominate first half, but somehow we don't capitalize on this domination and get only a small lead
- the opponent adjusts in 2nd half and we struggle for 25 mins, sometimes even crumbling
- the opponent scores and has the upper hand
- we/Rino adjusts and we end up dominating the last 20-30 mins, but are unlucky or not clinical enough

Why this is isn't so bad and I'm still behind Rino? Because we have showed that we can play really well. We just need:
1. To be more clinical and not waste so many chances. Even if you have a 3-0 lead, you still can't throw away good chances, because anything can happen.
2. Need to improve our depth, because the subs still suck. I think we should have invested Castillejo + Bakayoko money in a better midfielder, because we have Bona who can also play as winger and we have the necessary players to switch to a 3-5-2 or 4-4-2 formation. But, we really lack an additional good midfielder. If one of Bona, Biglia or Kessie are injured or in bad form - we are pretty much fucked.

sarri won nothing because:
- he is shit coach
- he didnt have players good enough
?

no matter who is coaching acm if we need to play 2 games per week with
hakan, suso, bona as our creative department with subs in samuel+bako+borini (mauri+ berto players without any value as rotation for biglia and kessie)

ps. conte was winning easy in serieA when there was no capable teams to fight back, today serieA looks different (strong juve, okeish napoli, lazio, roma and inter able to win easily many games if coaches not failing with squad). so conte and this squad = nobody knows.
sure experienced coach is usually better than one without experince.
