    Juve starting Matuidi and Bentancur so it will be another low scoring game

    Juve hardly impress against the weaker sides, but still seem to get the wins.

    So pathetic. Ronnie padded him gently and he goes down crying. Embarrassing.

    I know you watch Juve loads because of Ronaldo but do you genuinely enjoy watching their matches? To me watching them week in week out would be like watching Atletico Madrid or Barca, yes teams full of great players but their matches are rarely thrillers simply because they're so well structured the opposition can rarely get that many shots at their goals.

    On the contrary I like watching Atalanta, Roma and to a lesser extent Lazio. Always some chaos in their games and loads of goals. Milan for different reasons are must watch aswell just to see how bad they are this week.

    It's getting more ridiculous than ever though.

    At this rate they will break Serie A's points record while being the 6th or 7th best attack in the league :lol:

    Contes turned Inter into title challengers pretty much straight away. Lukaku scoring goals. No wonder he wanted out from United. United should have got Conte in and kept Lukaku. Could have got us challenging at the top instead of languishing in midtable shit field.

    One of Smalling or Lukaku are going to win the league. Fair play

    No it's not

    They'll start converting their chances better and score in the region of 70-80 goals, as usual. They've been the best attack in the league twice in 8 years

    Good pick to watch Roma. If Paulo Fonseca succeeds he will turn them into a high pressure attacking team. He's a very talented manager.

    Feels like the Napoli cycle is at the end now btw. Done well over the last few years and probably overachieved but could drop to 4th this year. Guess Ancelotti is under pressure now, they're more back to the level they were under Rafa Benitez.

    Important win for Juve. I did not see the game today so I can't really comment on much nor have I seen highlights yet.

    At least with Barca, you can witness some Messi magic and at times it can influence his attacking partners. There is nothing enjoyable about watching Juventus and nothing exciting about Cristiano anymore. You're either a Juve fan or a fanboi of Ronaldo if you watch Juve on a regular basis

    Last year he had Ronaldo and still they went out at QF level in spite of leading 1-0 both legs, which really hurt his reputation as the ultimate pragmatist, his demeanour in public and his five-years cycle due to natural extenuation.

    Sarri does not need to reinvent the wheel, just add his spice? He is on par with the early season targets, so more time to work their style. It is good for Serie A to have Inter back as a serious contender, Atalanta and Roma too. Napoli seems lost right now because Ancelotti lacks the fire you can see in the eyes of Conte day in day out.

    The new rule in Seria A this season- De Ligt can play with his hands whenever he wants- no repercussions.

    If that's handball by De Ligt we can shut down the sport

    He clearly tried to put his arm away and was close to his body to begin with, it was even deflected. Never a pen

    They're unlucky with the schedule right now. They played lazio even and are clearly getting better. Unfortunately they keep playing better teams

    I think it was him that set it up for Correa, inch perfect timing and pace as in so many situations players put too much pace on it and it just runs through to the keeper or goes out for a goal kick.

    Edit: Just seen a match report and seems it was Luiz Alberto.

    Can someone explain what the heck is going on in Napoli between di Laurentis and the team? Is he being reasonable or just his typical megalomaniacal self?

    DeLa feels hard done by Ancelotti and the squad for not being as competitive as assumed in the pre-season, hence the increasing bad sentiment and interference with his coach’s job... reality is the geezer really wanted to sell Koulibaly, Allan and Insigne at upmarket value last Summer and is now thinking of a firesale in January before it’s too late to monetise properly.

    If the prices that were mentioned for Koulibaly are true, they really should have sold. Bad move from him.

    An hour in and Inter still losing at home to Verona. I don't think I've ever seen such an awful two teams chasing a title. They outdo each others rubbish performances every week.
