Vranckx and Thiaw I haven't watched. Unless you have, I'm not sure how you can evaluate what sorts of players they are, whether they were good transfers or not.
I have seen Vranckx play and while I didn't see him a lot last season. He seems to have grown from his time in Mechelen. Where he already was strong, even if it was just Belgian competition. I rather like this transfer. Very interested to see what he would do here this season. I don't think he would become a starter. But sub, maybe at some point in some matches.

Then let's see what he can do. I have confidence in Pioli to assess him

Guys who write off ladri are not serious enough. Soon jube will play with di maria, chiesa, vlahovic, pogba, paredes, locatelli, cuadrado, bremer etc. That is a very good team like it or not. Plus, when jube needs help from FIGC they get it.

For me our biggest rival, if merda sells Skriniar, will be juventus. I may be wrong.

Pioli has a lot of work to do. We added kids to a young team and mechanisms are so dar not working completely well. But it's early.

I also hope whoever will play as RW. Whoever. Just not Salad or Messias. Origi, Ante, Adli, Dest, Cdk... Pioli NEEDS to do so coz we can't keep playing with 10 man. It's pointless.

how many of our players have facial hair, and how salty will they be when they have to shave?

Pogba is Instagram star, last good match was for France, 4 years ago. Di Maria is quality but 35 already. Chiesa didn't play almost a year, big question mark above him. Peredes average player. Vlahović is very good.

You saw the names of player and thats it. Watch what and how did they played before Juve. Ofc mybe I am wrong. But Exepct Vlahović and healthy Chiesa a wouldnt take any player from Juve to Milan.

Question: I thought Dest can also play left defender (wing back) position.

Vranckx is a great talent, most likely needs half a year to adjust but will be excellent backup.

Dest is nice addition… why sign Florenzi if we could have loaned Dest from the start…

I don't think it's too much for players to at least know their positions 3 months after joining.

What makes you think they don't know?
Pobega is clearly the more advanced of the midfield duo when he's starting, with similar tasks as Krunic.
He got into some good positions and will probably score a few Nocegoals eventually, but his overall midfield game is weak and that's more on him than tactics. He got benched at times at both Spezia and Torino for this specific reason.

Either way.. if you don't have a team to rotate then don't. Just sub people in as required. If you do have / want a team to be rotational then make sure u know their positions.
He's rotating the likes of Florenzi and Saele/Messias for the sake of rotating - and they have proven to be backup quality.
Pobega is only starting because there were no other options.

This is just very meh.
Huh?
"Meh" means indifference.
Why do most of RnB seem to confuse "meh" for "blegh"(disgust)?

Nobody's writing them off, they do have quite a good squad over there. But Allegri is still Allegri. Soon he'll play Milik at LW and when his back is against the wall, he'll turn to De Sciglio the almighty.

I thak ladri serious but those names have huge downgrade.
di maria is washed player that simple cant play way he wants and he is just to old to constatly play at high level.
Chiesa good player but he is out for almost a year
vlahovic can score 50 freekick goals he isnt wc striker period.
pogba haha
paredes come on Mrki

The next two games will be very insightful. Two pressure fixtures played openly at high intensity. Ideal conditions for CDK to showcase his quality, justifying the big investment.

Is he or is he not kessie's replacement ? If he is kessie replacement and he's never played that role then the problem is with recruitment. If he isn't kessies replacement and he's being expected to play the role anyway then it's on pioli.

He isn't krunic's replacement that's for sure. Krunic plays cm cam and lw. He's a body we put out there when we can't field 11 players.

Pobega definitely has a more defined role.
He's rotating the likes of Florenzi and Saele/Messias for the sake of rotating - and they have proven to be backup quality.
Pobega is only starting because there were no other options.

Saele hasn't proven anything. If last season was to go by , pioli was trying rebic at rw just to avoid playing him. He even avoided every opportunity to sub him in by the end. This game proved that point again.

He had options. Barring kjaer the subs should have been starters.

He tried to rotate a team that isn't ready to be rotated and he paid the price.

It was a draw.

The definition of an indifferent scoreline.

I thought Fifa fixed these sort of things years ago.

Ummm..because his dad is american?

FIFA stopped countries from rushing naturalisation to make foreign exports eligible.

Dest already had American citizenship through his father.

You normally say ridiculous stuff, and this is no different. Last game has made it abundantly clear there is no hope for Saele at Milan. I bet he would do well at a small club tho

I think Serie A will push for better TV deals now. We gonna be flush with cashhhhhhhh
🤣🤦‍♂️🤣🤦‍♂️

Cry more.

In Netherlands we kind of felt betrayed. He got through all youth systems, facilities, etc. Then we wanted to recruit him for the Dutch NT and he chooses USA. Even his Ajax team mates at that time (frenkie de jong, de ligt, van de beek) were disappointed with him. Club also started to exclude him and eventually sold him. Bit of a rat move if you ask me.
