Might be good for us, they've both been quite bad / average. Let's give others a chance.

I really wanna see Hauge CAM, but probably won't gonna happen soon. Pioli seems to not trust Lmeao at CF, so I hope this doesn't mean Rebic CF... even Diaz false-9 sounds better

Kessie was overrun vs Inter & Spezia because the entire squad didnt stand their ground.
Yesterday he didnt need to cover for others & he was a beast.

You ask them who Michael Jordan is, and they'll say basketball.

Also in regards to just popularity, David Beckham is one of the most famous football players globally. And currently, Cristiano Ronaldo is more popular than any other player.

Maradonna too.. even my aunts know hes a football player

Tomori transfer just shows how smart Maldini&co are. Instead of going for the overhyped kids who'd cost more than they're worth + demand a big wage, they found a gem in a tough situation (benched) and got a good price +loan deal

Good luck with your Mandzukic.
Leao will shine.

He slowed down last few weeks but was a beast when Ibra was injured first time around. Let's hope for more of the same.

Messi I wouldn't dare to say so.

Jordan is up there because he's been the first megastar from sport who really was promotable outside his sport and in a tremendously commercial way. In the 1990s having a sport figure as prominent and popular like him on every McDonald's or Nike or many other adds just wasn't as common as it may be today. Not even with the likes of Maradona or whoever you might think of. That's why he became so famous all over the world even to those who haven't watched one single minute of NBA or even basketball.

I think Hauge should be playing instead of Castillejo every time. samu doesn't really offer anything in my eyes, he runs around a lot thats about it

I don't think high press means what you think it means.
"High" refers to the position of the press, not it's intensity.

Spezia pressed high - Inter did not.
Teams that look for counters aren't pressing us high - they stay in their own half.

At full strength, the team knows how to deal with high press and low blocks.
Problems appear when several key players are missing or off form and we have a new unsynchronized XI every week due to injuries, COVID, suspensions and rotation. The decimated team ends up not having the quality, fitness or cohesion to deal with fitter, well-organized sides regardless of how far up the pitch the opponents press. Liverpool are experiencing similar difficulties, but they may not even make Top 6 this season.

I think Pioli misjudged some players and he could've dealt with the issues more pragmatically. The team needs to reduce risks when they clearly aren't in a state where they can pull off risky moves.
But there are some players that are simply not good enough(Krunic, Meite, Dalot), not ready(Tonali) or poor fits for high press / high line(Leao, Romagnoli).

Crazy to look at just a few of his endorsement deals. Coke, McDonald's, Nike, Gatorade...I can't even think of bigger or more global brands than these ones in the 90's.

I think my typo maybe ruined what I meant, not "line line" - high line. We push up the pitch with a high line sometimes against a high press (as you've said, they are high up the pitch) and can leave us vulnerable when we lose the ball to it. We get beaten when they press players onto our key carriers i.e. Hakan who wasn't able to contribute much when this occurs. We end up losing the ball, and if we play up the pitch against that press with slow CBs then we just ask for trouble. We had issues against Atalanta and Lille (first game) when pressed and with intensity. It drowns out our play, which yes it certainly isn't helped with all of the injuries and players returning out of form. Problem is, we rarely have that cohesive full strength team to deal with it like they know how, so an alternative is needed. If we look back at the rate of injuries, you can suspect it will not be the end of it, and have to plan accordingly. Can't keep doing the same thing if Spezia can figure us out, and have others do the same.

Agree with your latter point. If you don't have the players with the characteristics needed to pull it off, we need to adapt. Not even a change in formation necessarily but how we dictate play and move the ball.

Imo Messi is not that big a "brand" as he could be because he is frankly quite boring and not that charismatic.

Compare that to Maradona who - despite being a legendary player - I?d say even outgrow his player quality in popularity.

The answer to this question of global popularity can only be found in the deepest jungle of the most remote areas on the planet....so please let?s either go there and find the answer or let?s talk about another subject
