De Zerbi masterclass in Turin, the best young, progressive coach in Italy and hopefully next big thing :drool: ...on the opposite, we just seem..... old?

That Boga chip was a beauty

Juve a comedy of errors for the second goal. They will still take at least a point somehow i imagine

Juventus - Sassuolo 2-2.. Now Inter against SPAL for the top of the table, would be important given that they have some tough fixtures then (Roma, Barcelona, Fiorentina away, Napoli and Atalanta)

Cant believe some people think Inter are not contenders. Was obvious since the first 3 weeks in the season.

Sarri is such a fraud. Just another failed 'build from the back' manager.

Lukaku has showed some not.inconsiderable skill.so far. That pass to.martinez which he missed was awesome.

Juve-Sassuolo xG 3.4(+1 penalty) vs 0.8

I mean...you can blame Sarri if you want, but the truth is juve just keep missing chances(and in this game, gifted a ridiculous goal)

This Juve team has regressed with Sarri on the wheel. They will loose every competition playing like this.

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.

Yeah his goal return has always been brilliant in Serie A but struggled at Dortmund and probably more surprisingly at Sevilla. Feel that's why no one has really gone after Belotti and why he's still slumming it at Torino in mid table. Italian strikers don't usually travel abroad that well.

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.

Ranieri working the oracle at Samp. 2-0 up at Cagliari who have been a bit flat tonight. For most of this season they've been one of the most entertaining teams to watch in europe.

still there is an urge for a change at the top of serie A and a more pinballistic style to appease the casual fans :annoyed:

Cagliari warming up now, 2-3.

They'll probably still win this with a Radja 95th minute 30 yarder. :lol:

Oh my 3-3...Joao Pedro is so good this season.

VAR may have a look though...Cracking cross from Radja regardless.

Such a Cellino move, he did this all the time at Palermo (pretty sure Corini was manager there at one stage).

Cellino, Zamparini, De Laurentiis, Lotito, Ferrero and many more... self-styled artisans of life, half buffoon half mobster, these days posing as popular heroes against the elites born with a silver spoon in the mouth.

There’s a blast from the past, he’s taken to the Italian league really well.
I bet no one even remembers him being at Liverpool! Or Barcelona for that matter. :D

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.

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.
I believe he and Inzaghi had a falling out earlier on in the season, but they seem to have buried the hatchet now.

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.
