its nice to see lodi at a bigger club he is very underrated
Oh no, no, you are not the only one. That is for sure lol... oop:
As for me I do not find Lodi that interesting to us, as he is to Catania...He is nothing special during active game play - he only excels during set pieces and for that we do have Pjanic and Lamela among others and I am more willing to develop ours than bring in Lodi to fill a space in midfield for dead ball situations...Moreover, until Totti is there it is highly unlikely Lodi will become our set-piece taker...
The only way I would agree to Montella's return is if he bring Gomez with him and not at an inflated price
I dont think Catania will be feeling to generous though lol. Gomez will be at a price for any club and more so Roma if Montella is the manager
Why are we going for Montella? He's a good coach but he hasn't actually done anything in the coaching world yet. When I read the title of this thread it just made me feel like we are taking a step backwards.
Sure we are!
How can we say we are taking a step backwards with a manager when he hasn't even been named or started the season?? Give the guy a chance. One of the things I can't stand about football compared to american sports is the severe lack of support for a new coach.
What's the rush to bring in Montella. Let Montella return in about five years when he has some experience. At this moment in time we'd be better off with AVB or Zeman or Bielsa
I have no rush to bring him back, I actually think the candidates you named are much better suited for the time being. But that does not mean I'm going to bash Montella.
Most of that could be alligned with LE's work at Roma - Boring? Tick. Mediocre? Tick. Underachieving? Tick. Not qualifying for Europe? Tick. Looking for a coach again? Tick.
And LE only excited players from abroad because he was unknown as a manager. Now that they have seen Enrique's work in practise, you can be sure they are no longer excited!
You all had a love-fest for LE when Baldini announced him as our manager and look how that went.
Montella also has a leg up on LE as Roma manager already - he finished a season with us in the European spots and he has a derby win to his name.
I won't bash him either, and if he's given the job I'll thoroughly support, I'm just giving my opinion on the situation.
The best part about this is only about 3 people on this board are excited about this move and think its logical. Yet, were sitting here looking at a thread that has no logical explanation as to why he will help this club at all.
This is such a Sensi Era move it actually pisses me off. 2 steps backward.
I still do.
Someone foreign, exciting, and new was great last season. It still is.
We were trying to get rid of the norm and now were just going back to it.
I don't understand the "Sensi Era" move ideal?
Sure, Montella is an underwhelming choice compared to all the fantacalcio names we have been linked with but he has shown this seaosn to be perhaps the brightest young manager in Serie A (give or take Stramacioni), definitely brighter than LE.
Please explain to me how Montella is the brightest young manager in Serie A. There were 12 new managers in Serie A at the start of last season and 15 coaches lost their jobs this year.
How does being a coach in Serie A say anything? There is a reason that people call Serie A: The Coaching Boneyard.
The way people keep there jobs in this league is by playing boring, cautious football. Which we will now be included.
At this rate just bring back Claudio. He's Italian, experienced, and actually available.
Don't understand all the Montella hate,he has done a fantastic job at Catania leading them to their highest ever finish in their histroy,that itself is very impressive.
15 coaches lost their jobs and Montella was one of the ones who finished the season with certainty in his role. Survival of the fittest.
I said this somewhere else but I'll say it here. Diego Simeone is receiving alot of plaudits as a coach because of his work with Ateltico Madrid this season. Montella finished even higher with Catania than Diego Simeone did with them the previous season. And, unlike Simeone, Montella had to deal with the sale of Matias Silvestre in the summer and then Maxi Lopez in January.
Big Big lie!!! - Highest League Position: 8th, in the 1960–61 and 1964–65 seasons...Even last season they were 11-13th with 46 points, just two points less than this year and much more points for any top team...
So what that doesn't change the fact of what he's done this season.
Held both Milan and Juve to 1-1 draws.
Beat Lazio,Inter and Napoli
And like I said he will continue to coach in a way so he does keep his job. Which doesnt excite me at all why I mentioned Claudio.
Also, as someone else mentioned his record in the second part of the season was crap. So since your a big fan of him and clearly followed him this season, how did he change his team tactically with the loss of Lopez? Did it work?
Simeone just won the Europa league after losing his 2 starting strikers. That is a much bigger loss than losing a defender and then losing someone in January.
Don't care how many strikers he lost. He got Falcao.
And Falcao brought the title, not Simeone...
Luis Enrique also beat Inter and Napoli and he drew Juventus. He lost the Lazio games but he played both of them with a man less. So all in all I'd say he's pretty close in ability.
They finished 3rd back in 1970 ,so shoot me.
I see Zeman is a popular choice on here I personally wouldn't mind seeing him take over but my only concern would be his age,he's no spring chicken.
Anyway what percentage chance is there that Montella will manage us next season? has any negotiations taken place?
