Not applicable for Juve anymore and I highly doubt there's teams in Italy willing to take on such a problematic figure on astronomical wages and short-sighted transfer policy.

As much as I hate to say it, feel bad for you guys. Must be heartbreaking given how other teams - including yourself, Lazio - dropped stupid points and lost out on the title. 2 points (to account for H2H) behind which was a win vs Bologna or Gagliardini scoring an open goal gives. If anyone beats Juve next season it'll be you guys. Roma and Napoli will get stronger but not much, same with us if we can keep up this form but I don't expect a title challenge. Atalanta and Lazio are questionmarks as to if they can do the same as this season.
Thanks mate, but the way I see it Juve won the Scudetto with 2 games to spare. So the real difference was 8 points. Still those 11 points dropped against Sassuolo, Bologna, Verona, Roma & Fiorentina in the post Covid days did hurt. But we are really behind Juve in terms of squad, our lack of depth got exposed with a game every 3 days, so its understandable. Maybe in a year or two we can catch up. It time there is a new scudetto winner.

Right now, I am just hoping Conte does not do his usual rage quit routine. He will be an idiot to do that, he would only make himself almost unemployable. So hopefully better senses will prevail and we can continue building on this project.

After his speech yesterday, I'd err on the side of him getting sacked soon if he doesn't keep it to himself - but that's not how he works Management must be pissed for him to speak out like that against them.

Why does he give a fuck? He?s got the upper hand.


He leaves and at least 3-4 clubs of significance will grab him

He has Inter by the balls

I am not so sure about that. There aren't many clubs in the world who can afford Conte. And if he rage quits or gets sacked for the 3rd consecutive time after a major public rift with the management, that will not help his employability.

Anyways, its best for everyone at Inter if this gets resolved in a meeting room.

You think Conte can?t get a job? I know you?re a serious poster but this is silly

Plenty of managers have had rifts with clubs and the players. If they show they can win, an Conte can, they will always have a job.

Letting Conte go is the worst thing Inter could do.
They had poor form after Covid break, but I see them as the only side who can usurp Juve next season. Building on this season with Conte would be in their best interest. Starting with a new coach will undo all that.

Fair enough. But the amount of times they failed to take advantage of poor results from Juve still indicates a very disappointing run.

I used to envy how brilliantly Juve and Napoli were run.

But take the worst traits from Mirabelli and Galliani and you'll get Paratici.
To think this guy was the RnB dream signing as Galliani replacement....

He probably is competent at certain things, but there's a reason Marotta was his boss.

12m net and 85m transfer fee for a kid who looked good in a few UCL games for a great team that also made Daley Blind seem like a good defender. The high-profile errors with the Dutch NT should've been a warning sign...but no.

9m net for Rabiot.
7m net for Ramsey.
All the agent and sign-on fees.
Danilo.
3.5m net for Rugani.
3m net for De Sciglio.
And then, of course, the CR disaster.



As for Napoli, they were doing fine until De Laurentiis decided to give Koulibaly a massive raise instead of cashing in on him while he was overvalued in the market, the way they had previously done with Cavani, Higuain, Jorginho, etc.
Koulibaly's raise created jealousy among the likes of Insigne and Allan. The latter basically stopped performing when he realized ADL isn't going to negotiate with an employee who is on a contract for 4 more years.

They decided to keep Koulibaly, pay him 11m gross yearly and he's not even starting material for them anymore. KK-Manolas make a terrible duo.
