re: Napoli vs. Lazio Hype Thread - 5/31, 2:45 EST - wm72
Lazio has a strong team. They had the best form in the league over the 2nd half of the season and were a bit unlucky to not beat Juve in the Coppa final last week. They bought wisely the last two summers and have their hands on some younger players that are playing at the top of their positi...

[quote]A day later Napoli announces a presser for Rafa[/quote] This is a bit odd. It's a joint presser with De Laurentiis and Benitez on the Thursday before Napoli's biggest match of the season: winner take all affair for the last CL spot with Lazio. Seems odd to announce that Rafa is ...

re: Why are european clubs so quick to fire managers? - wm72
Torino was the Italian city traditionally flush with cash due to Fiat and generally being the manufacturing capital, particularly during the post-war economic boom when both Juve and Torino really built their reputations. Not to mention that Juve has always been the most supported Italian c...

re: 2015/2016 Transfer Discussion - wm72
I've certainly been wrong before but if I were a Real fan I would rather have Rafa than Klopp. To me, Klopp's biggest question mark at Dortmund was never figuring out a way to adjust his style to not having a roster full of 20-22 year old players that would sprint 20km a match. He stuck to...

re: 2015/2016 Transfer Discussion - wm72
Rafa is certainly a good manager but he underwhelmed at Napoli more than Carlo at Real the past two seasons. Rafa was ok at Napoli but they had the roster to do better and actually had done better the previous few seasons under Mazzarri. He's certainly a top manager with a strong resum...

re: 2015/2016 Transfer Discussion - wm72
I like Milner but where exactly is he planning on going where he'll figure more prominently than at City and get to play more the #10-ish role? He's certainly good enough to do that for mid-table sides all over Europe but can't see him doing so for many CL caliber sides. No big criticism a...

re: Paris all but clinch 3rd straight Ligue 1 title - wm72
I watched that match yesterday. Verratti was incredibly good. That one play where he had about 5 tackles in a sequence and then the assist to Ibra was one of the plays of the season. If Pogba is worth €80m, Verratti may be worth €90m. Also, seems Cavani is finishing chances a lot bet...
