  1. Enigmatic has been a consistent embarrassment with his description of Italy's run. Just ignore it. You'd think we stumbled through the knockouts and won by luck.
  2. Hate stupid videos for lineups. Just give us a graphic. Donnarumma; Walker, Bonucci, Maguire, Spinazzola; Højbjerg, Jorginho, Pedri; Chiesa, Lukaku, Sterling ^^^ UEFA team
  3. Nor did I. Mainly thanks to his reaction. I was waiting for our next taker
  4. Well if you mean Denmark, they had an easy group, and then knockouts of Wales and Czech Republic. I'd expect Denmark to beat Wales. Czech Republic is a 50-50 given how the Czechs played. But I certainly don't look at their run and think 'wow, didn't they go further than they should'. They went as far as their draw allowed them and progressed from their group with a massive 3 points
  5. Bastoni and Romagnoli should be enough. Bastoni struggled in some of his games because Mancini plays high and front foot and he's from a club that doesn't play that way at all. And he's slow so he needs to learn to defend in those teams, like Chiellini has
  6. Kind of how I see it. If England win the shootout nobody says a word about the game. We'd be told how Southgate planned it all perfectly and got everything right, anyone saying Italy were the better team would just get told to 'suck it up' or something like that. But they lost and so there's a few complaints about the approach and how they should've been braver. You either accept the approach and hope it works out, like it did for France, or get someone in who will be more expansive
  7. 'He was good' should be what matters though. Donnarumma; Walker, Bonucci, Chiellini, Shaw; Pedri, Jorginho, Pogba; Sterling, Schick, Forsberg Think Schick has to be the striker. He played five games and scored in four of them. Not like he bagged them all against Scotland and then did nothing. Scored in both the knockout games he played in.
  8. Wasn't this for covid reasons though, to make sure it was all covid secure etc.
  9. Juve definitely the best place because he'll play and they're in the Champions League. We need more players playing at that level really. The improvement in Barella over the last two seasons since he started playing Champions League is amazing. He didn't have a good tournament but he's becoming a top player. Also 23 isn't young. Not for a forward nowadays anyway. Now is the age he needs to kick on and become a fuoriclasse. He turns 24 next season - in the season Sterling turned 24, he scored 18 league goals, four in the Champions League. That's the standard.
  10. You kind of worry what would have happened if the stadium was meant to be full, as in all 90,000 ticketed and not 60,000. I know Hillsborough is difficult to repeat with no fencing, but you'd be heading for a situation that's similar at the very least I guess the argument is that people might not have tried, but some of the stuff going on was so bad. To have such poor stewarding and policing for an event like that is criminal.
  11. What we really need is Chiesa to take the next step. He's good, but we need consistent product if he's going to reach the category of Sterling/Gnabry/Salah/Mané, and he's not there yet.
  12. Tonali. Bastoni, although he needs to get used to playing for a team that plays football. Hopefully Luca Pellegrini because we need fullbacks. Zaniolo would have been in this squad if not for injury - need to see if he's the same player because he's had two ACL injuries. I'm hoping Kean can settle down and become consistently good because we need a forward They're all players you've probably heard of. Rovella is probably the best one that people won't have heard of. But he's not got much Serie A experience as yet and unless he makes an incredible jump he's unlikely to get called given the competition in midfield
  13. I didn't either. Saka missed and I was waiting for the next Italian taker. I don't think Donnarumma strolling off to the side with no celebration after saving it helped
