Paratici really has this guy buttered up, he hasn't a bad word to say about our prospects or transfer strategy. Bit of an Alasdair Gold vibe, in that you can trust what news he'll have about the club to a point, but it will be the message that the club wants you to hear. I think we're one of the few clubs that Romano actually hears some legit noise from, most of his stuff is just aggregation from other reporters.


Interesting Scamacca mentioned as Juve's top target in the summer... Weren't we linked to him too?

Funny how things change.... Strikers were like rocking horse shit in recent years; yet come the summer there's a bucket load in the balance.

Would have been dumb to keep him. Offered nothing in the PL at all, looked every inch a centre back thrown up top IMO

We'd still be in Europe and he could still be used to rest Kane when games are in the bag.....

May well have been better in a more structure/coached attack than Jose-ball too. We actually attempt to feed the box and cater to a more trad. CF positioning than back then

You lost me at still in Europe. Exiting that abortion gives us a chance of 4th

You glad we're out of the LC too?

Should we bin off the FACup tie vs Brighton?



......I bet you're one to complain about no trophies too.

No. LC and FA far less disruptive….

That said I would rather challenge for top 4, PL and CL than win an FA and finish 7th and not compete
 
Paratici needs to step up. Im not impressed at all with his signings so far.

Gollini - why didnt we just keep hart?
Royal - needs replacing after 4 months
Gil - hopelessly lightweight. No where near prem level. Needs a loan
Romero - quality
Papa Saar - Who?

Seriously, that is a piss poor summer.

Vinicius was on 60k a week, could we have not kept him for another year?
When Vinicius is the answer to your problems it shows how far we have sunk. He was fuckin hopeless.

In hindsight, it’s a godsend we are out bearing in mind we already have four PL games to schedule. Agreed?

Only due to squad depth concerns; which Vinicius would have helped address. (I suspect you wouldn't be saying much of this if we were anticipating an away game to ZenitSP tho.)

So, despite chasing some kind of tenuous counter-argument to vindicate your original comment; we come full circle and your OG argument remains null.....


Still; be sure not complain about us not winning the FACup, LC, EL or ECL in the future........ Top 4 trophy is the big one for you (fair enough; but it's good to know where people stand).
