Lukaku would have won them that game if he had played but then people here would say those goals don't matter because it was against an easy team like Parma.

Or maybe miss? Last season he had a stinker against them.
Also Parma haven't lost a match at San Siro for 5 years

They only made it to the first division a couple years ago and they were better than they are this season.

Anyway, point is that Lukaku clearly makes Inter a whole lot better despite all the unwarranted hate he gets

Inter are so dumb sometimes.

Gervinho seems to score pretty regularly in Serie A, was at Arsenal nearly a decade ago now. :eek:

Every time I see Parma get a good result I wonder what ever happened to Santi Alexis or whatever his name was. Used to slag Parma off repeatedly because they weren't as good as they were in the 90s.:D

Santi had too many major meltdowns in the F1 thread and was banned for his own good iirc

And yes, Lukaku has been great for inter and started the season in great form, big miss for them today. They also somehow didn't get a penalty when perisic was rugby tackled in the box :lol:

4 ex or current Watford players starting for Udinese today, another two on the bench.

Think Deulofeu has been parked there for the season in case Watford come straight back up. Interested to see how he does in Serie A again.

Ibra to the rescue.

The athleticism at 39 for this goal is a bit special

Juve struggling to beat Spezia now, looking like 1-1 going into half time.

Tommaso "Paul" Pobega with the Spezia goal. :)

Need to get Ronaldo on second half for that psychological boost. And he'll probably score to make it 1-2.

Dybala is out of form and Juve’s defense looks really bad

They’re creating chances at least and Morata is looking sharp

Ronaldo comes in, scores a goal in about 2 minutes and suddenly Juventus looks like a proper team again.

Everyone always feels more confident in their game when you know one of the greats of last 20 years is back doing his thing in the final third.

Imagine being out 1 month coming back and scoring 2x like it was nothing. This man at 37 looks like he's 30 out on the pitch.

Milan looking very good as well.

Juve look god awful defensively. They let a weak side like spezia create far too many chances. 3 atb does not work. When you have one of the top 3 players in the world to come in and save the day it covers a lot of clear blemishes in this side.

Morata at Juve is a different player. This is his home.

What on earth happened to Torino, 3-2 up and they concede 95th minute penalty and Lazio then score a winner in 97th minute.

Torino blew a 3-1 lead against Sassuolo last week aswell late on.

Juve still looks very shaky defensively, at least the result was great. Two good things are that Ronaldo is back and that Rabiot has been looking great.

Father Time can't get a hold of him at the moment. He looks the same player as he was 5 years ago. I don't think there is a more lethal player on the planet. If he played for a better attacking side like Bayern or something I would wager he still hits 50 goals.

Ya I think 3 atb does not work. Pirlo said it would look like 4 defensively but if you watch them play it looks nothing like that. They give away way too many chances that better teams would have made them pay for.

Yes, also that the 2 best cb, de ligt and chiellini, are injured, doesn't help.

He is”only” 35 though! I have no doubts he will be doing the same thing in two years at 37!

He will be around for a while yet.

Offensively Juve have everything to be a lot better this season with Chiesa and Kulusevski in the team to make things happen instead of being just Dybala and Ronaldo. Morata has been great so far too so he should be an upgrade on Higuain.

Defensively they've been awful though, really need Chiellini, De Ligt and Alex Sandro to make an impact. I think Alex Sandro playing where Danilo played today will be a big success. There is a lot of potential for improvement in this team imo, it's all down to Pirlo to figure things out.
