Probably the right call. If Napoli didn't do it this season, I think that's their window slamming shut

Napoli has a depth problem in nearly every area of the pitch. De Laurentiis is just too cheap. I am also convinced that Sarri would have gone for the CL and EL had he not received instructions to do otherwise from ADL. After he leaves, which may be to the EPL at the end of this year, he might just let us know why he neglected Europe this year.

Agreed, I think a signing like Verdi would've helped them with their Scudetto push. I thought it was kind of strange that he refused the move to stay with Bologna, he's having a great season though.

In midfield though, they are stacked: Hamsik, Jorginho, Allan, Zielinski, Diawara. Very good midfield in my opinion

Do you think that midfield is stronger than Naingolan, Strootman, De Rossi, Perrotti, Pellegrini, Gerson and Under?

It's comparable. Perotti/Under are forwards for me

In any case, both Roma and Napoli have the best midfields in Serie A

Anyway every good GL user should support Inter on this CL race IMO
It'd be nicer to follow football on GL next year
Take Robes on that large table of Champions League with you pls.
Imagine Surag that opens Inter - Manchester United thread and he can finally join sincerely to Manchester United wagon led by Frenzy
Europe asks this , not just Robes
Love must always win. The loves can win every battle and overcome adversities.
I mean , why shouldn't Juve fans want to do it ?
We are not gonna win  if we play it, but we are going to offer you some good and sure banter.
It's not even hilarious to make laugh of Lazio.
Since I am on GL I've never faced someone in Europe. At least Milan fans had that epic battle against Arsenal fanbase.
I 'm the Italian Mole

Napoli's problem is that they have no depth up front. Outside of Mertens, Insigne, and Callejon... theres nothing. Milik missed a sitter yesterday, although Donnarumma came up high.

Mertens has been in shocking form in 2018 as well. If he hadn't declined so much these few months Napoli would be ahead currently. Verdi and a for Milik would do wonders for them.

Mertens has been really bad. This is true. Don't know why... he hasn't lost his pace or anything... he's not finishing and getting in behind like he normally does.

Anyhow, this is what happens when you have a great XI but a terrible bench.

Pressure and maybe feeling the strain of playing so many games

For me, the biggest regression has been Hamsik

Hamsik looked finished at the start of the season but then recovered form. Now he is worse than he used but is till fine. Mertens just fell off a cliff in January. He was doing well in the first half and then disappeared

Why does Roma have to play 3 league games before the CL match up while Liverpool just plays 1?

Leagues are different. The schedule in the PL is usually ahead of other leagues because they play with less breaks in winter.

Kit names replace by Twitter handles. This league will have 4 teams in the CL next season :facepalm:

How is this allowed?

That is because of Cagliari imo
Worst team seen in San Siro this year
Samp match was more relevant for me

Anyway I haven't words to describe how much we are bottlers. It is frustrating to support this team.
We had to be 4-0 and Karamoh missed a goal that even Handanovic would have done

Expecting to bottle it definitely even this time

Karamoh is looking like Simone Pepe out there. Trying harder than anyone else but missing everything.

I think yes
Exactly now that we was playing good, very unlucky
Bad loss for Inter , not just because he was going to be important but also because Vecino is injured and Borja Valero well.. he is really finished

it can be an advantage to play against a team that fight for the relegation battle during midweek. I mean  , Cagliari play against Bologna on Sunday and it is decisive for them. they were thinkin' especially on that match imo.
Same for Napoli-Udinese tomorow.
I've listened that Oddo is going to rotate some players , also because he has a good number of players to miss next match if they get a yellow card ( how hell do you say " diffidato" in English ? lol )
Even if I don't know he is right with this reasoning , if he loses even tomorrow Udinese get 10 losses in a row and it means they can have a new manager in place of him..
Yes, today it was extremely easy.
MOTM was the trumpeter that transformed Milano in Skopje.
Magic atmosphere that marked the definitive victory of multicultarism

What's the odd of Inter making top-four? Lazio and Roma can overtake them (both have a game in hand) and Lazio have a better GD.
