galliani wasted 90 million in the summer of 2015, this guy outdid him.

this is what happens when you sign nobodies to lead your project, they should have thrown money at paratici or someone similar who's actually known and well accomplished.

Had senile old Silvio listened to Galliani when he recommended Sarri for the job 2 yrs back, we would have been in a much better position now

...Sarri would've been fired before the takeover.

Much of what Sarri is being credited for or is praised about this Napoli were already there to a great extent when he took over. Their high-intensity game, the high work-rate of every single player, the deadly counterattacks, the cohesive attacking movements, the high success rate and spectacularity of their 1-2s etc. He made some correct adjustments, showed a better judgment on players than Benitez and brought back the enthusiasm which Benitez also brought with him and then threw away.

He would inherit none of that here.
And Silvio would've turned against him as soon as 4-3-1-2 was abandoned.

Don't get me wrong. I would love to see someone like Sarri be given a few seasons and transfer windows to fix the many problems in this team, but it would've for sure not ended well with the previous management(maybe not current one either).
It's a good thing that we haven't burned that bridge yet.

It's already way too much at 117m for this squad at this stage of their careers and with the transfer fees that followed with them, but the real number is going to be at least 30m higher once we know how many bonus clauses got activated...even if they obviously will fail with the main objective, which is to qualify for CL.

This management duo has proven to be just as bad if not much worse at wage management and squad construction as the previous duo in their senile years.

"oh but they'll boost the revenue by 200% by taking advantage of the Asian market"

yeah good luck with that.

So much hyperbole in this thread.

Juve took 3 years to rebuild. Inter took like 4? Liverpool still rebuilding.

And we are judging Milan management 10 weeks into their first season.

I have nothing to blame F&M for.
Montella did well last season and deserved another year.
They've done great to keep Dollarumma.
They signed 10 very good players most of them before the start of preseason.
They got rid of many dead wood players.
They replaced Adidas with a better deal from Puma.

So please cut the crap with your hindsight judgement and let's talk in May.

I'm certain we will not finish top 4, so I don't have to wait till may.

you can convince yourself all you want by saying "2 teams will lose form" yeah because this mighty team is going to go on incredible form starting from next week.

winning the EL is the only chance we have to save this season, otherwise it's nothing but a complete disaster.


juve had 2 off seasons, inter were a circus (could still be) and liverpool are noway an example we should be following.

To be fair Marotta and Paratici failed miserably in their first season at Juve and most fans wanted them to be fired. No one could anticipate what would happen the following years.

So while things look terrible in the moment, the jury on the project is still out.

Exactly, fans have a very short memory.
Juve and Inter wasted money on a lot of players before they started playing anywhere near good.
Same goes for Real, ManCity and virtually any other team in the world.

Someone expected all of our signings to succeed?
Their fault for not knowing how football works.

True.

None of the new signing is doing well.

Because all that is showing me is, we had more games to cover ground on less points then we do today. If anything this is evidence that we might not qualify for top 4

It's a "form" table from the last 6 games.
Our form will definitely improve cause Montella found the formation that works more or less.

While the form of those top 5 teams will definitely drop.

Apologies thought you were showing something else. Thought it was the table from 12/13 before we started making the come back. How many points off were we from qualifying at the worst point of that season? anyone know?

I can't see our form changing to 6 wins in a row anytime soon with Montella, and it's a very unfavorable position to wait on other teams to lose. but that's where we are at I guess
