FDB is a different story.
His body has completed it's growth, but his mind/technique needs to catch up.
Whether or not he can do so is down to himself.
FBT needs a lot of work, but I still believe in him. Many of the new guys we get take a while to get going. Bennacer looked lost. Tonali needed a season. Dalot last year only looked reasonable at the end of the year. Brahim took almost a season.

All that list did is make me miss Borini. Every match day I wondered which position Borinho would start at. The guy played his heart out no matter which position.
Finally! someone who appreaciate Borini

Disclaimer:
Borini versatility makes him a decent back-up, ideal for any coaches.
he's the swiss army knife of football

Btw what happened to Olzer in Brescia? I expected from him to explode in B, like Colombo. He was the best in the last 2 years primavera, but doesn't now seem to get enough playing time.

I think they will qualify. They should win in N Ireland and I dont think Switzerland is able to score too many goals vs Bulgaria
I think you are up for a surprise :lol: A few days ago Ukraine had 40 shots towards our goal. They had some ridiculous misses. If it was their day they would've easily scored 6-7 goals. Switzerland need to win with 2 more goals than Italy. I expect them to attack non stop till the very last minute and score A LOT.

LooL (the cartoon)

I think his answer came in a post match interview, so it was a spur of the moment thing. There's no way Raiola would have allowed him to say something like that on purpose. Donnarumma is really stupid, and he keeps confirming how stupid he is all the time.

17/18 Milan roster was very promising tho.

it went the wrong direction, but it was kinda promising

The Portuguese golden boy, Italy NT ace CB, Ivorian promising B2B, who wouldnt sold by that?

Yeah Milan 17/18 was pretty hyped. It also came after a promising 16/17 season under Montella. Milan also won its first silverware (Supercoppa) in years. Much of the media thought that the Bonucci-coup was a power shift from Juve to Milan. Even the 17/18 kit was nice. There was a lot to look forward to... until the season started. False dawn.

I gave that summer mercato a 10. Thought Montella could build a great 352/433 hybrid like did at Fiorentina. We ended up with more Susoball.

Raiola was disrespectful towards Navas just as well: “The competition with Keylor Navas in Paris? There is absolutely no doubt that Donnarumma will be PSG’s starting goalkeeper.”
They are the same, no respect to anyone or anything except money

Yeah true... but he seems more established defensively would is amazing considering his age.

Difference is Kerkez is at the point in his development where his body needs to fill out first, like Pato back in the day.
Wouldn't want to burn out the kid before he even gets good, would ya?
You play him like you did with Pato when he was 18, and you start screwing up his body by the time he's 21/22.
Admittedly partying with R9 and 'Dinho didn't help, but that's besides the point.

FDB is a different story.

Whether or not he can do so is down to himself.
Pato’s issue wasn’t playing time, but it’s whatever they did to he’s body at Milan labs or what happened to he’s body naturally. Some people just have the bad luck of having unbalanced bodies. Mbappe has been playing since he was 17 and he’s fine, he’s gotten bigger too.

Thinking about it, the 2019 summer transfer window really changed the face of the club. We started cutting the wage bill and upgraded by signing:

A. Silva and Borini ---> A.Rebic
Cutrone ---> Leao
Biglia ---> Bennacer
R.Rodriguez --> Theo

Only blemish was the managerial appointment and an adventurous signing in Duarte from another continent. Luckily they fixed those issues pretty quickly.

It was Elliott and Maldini's first transfer window where they actually had a coherent plan, in contrast to the preceding transfer window where we signed players like Higuain, Samu and Caldara for big fees.

Yeah summer 2019 was where Maldini had a lot of influence and Elliott realized they had to trust themselves and not give someone like Leonardo full autonomy.
