Buffon, David James-esque.
at least they're the only team that literally can't lose this season. all major clubs in Europe lost at least once either in their domestic league, either in CL - except Juve.This Juve team has regressed with Sarri on the wheel. They will loose every competition playing like this.
still there is an urge for a change at the top of serie A and a more pinballistic style to appease the casual fansat least they're the only team that literally can't lose this season. all major clubs in Europe lost at least once either in their domestic league, either in CL - except Juve.
Such a Cellino move, he did this all the time at Palermo (pretty sure Corini was manager there at one stage).3 November- Brescia sack Eugenio Corini
5 November- Brescia hire Fabio Grosso
3 games, 3 defeats, 0 goals and 10 goal conceded
2 December- Brescia sack Fabio Grosso and replace him with.......Eugenio Corini
I bet no one even remembers him being at Liverpool! Or Barcelona for that matter.There’s a blast from the past, he’s taken to the Italian league really well.
I believe he and Inzaghi had a falling out earlier on in the season, but they seem to have buried the hatchet now.Last Lazio match I watched Immobile was a sub for some reason. I actually thought he wasn't as important to Lazio as he used to be although I don't watch them as much as two years ago when they were a must watch team.
The only thing I remember about him was a sub appearance in the Spurs away game we won in the 13/14 season, I remember him timing a through ball to absolute perfection. He never really got the chance here but it looks like he’s thriving over in Italy, being such a brilliant exponent of the through ball is a rare skill given how little it usually results in a chance. Glad to see him and Lazio doing well. Have a soft spot for them because of Lucas.I bet no one even remembers him being at Liverpool! Or Barcelona for that matter.
I've been a fan of his for a few years now. Savic gets all the plaudits, but Alberto is so much better, imo. As far as creative passers go, I think he's one of the best in the world. His through balls are perfection.
As I predicted a couple or so years ago on here, he's transitioned from a 10 behind Immobile (where he was brilliant at creating, being a goal threat, initiating counters when they won the ball back, and providing defensive cover) to a deeper CM very well. He obviously doesn't score as much as a result, but he's still as creative as ever, and provides a nice balance in midfield with Immobile and Correa up top.
