    Sometimes I wonder, when people say something, whether their sources are a politician, a lawyer, or a 'journalist'.

    Good thing Inter wore their prison uniforms. They belong to RS now.

    Another poor move from Garcia. Osimhen gets a pass from the opposition and finds himself 1on1 with the goalkeeper, has more time than the universe offers, yet due to Garcia's inability once again we cannot score. What a terrible coach.

    Our coach also has an improved Zambo there, he's just trying to play in the opposite direction now. Seems like Lobotka, Politano, and Zielinski are the only players who have kept the same level in this team.

    Could have been a disastrous half. DiLo saved it. Osi should have had 2 if not 3. Anguissa, not sure what he's doing at times. This D is scary, especially against counters.

    Anguissa is the very definition of terrible in this game, even the English commentators found 4 or 5 very negative words to describe his performance in all directions. They think it's just one of those days, but that is because they have not been following us this season. Today, sadly, there is only one noticeable player in our midfield, and that is Lobo, the one player who shows up consistently, and performs his duties in every game.

    Yeah, we are weak in defence, our midfield is a shadow, and we struggle to score goals; however, we have created more than enough chances. Even if we want to blame the coach terribly, out of sheer hatred of new coaches, we cannot neglect to see the signs of other causes in our little struggle. Seriously, the things that Anguissa has done today, would have been better had he just been trying to hide behind the corner flag the whole game...

    Let's score a couple. I really don't rate Braga. Frosinone have a better team.

    Seems like yous have a pissy attitude among some members of the 11. Is it we're too good for them so we can play half assed or is it because yous won the league and the players just aren't switched on...Either way, its frustrating to see as switched on this game would be out of sight. I was living every minute of that half, got a decent bet up if Napoli see this out but might have to bail and cover it after seeing this performance. :laugh:

    If we don't score this is going to finish 1-1

    Ouch, that's the second worst kind of own goal.

    You can say whatever you want, but the way Ostigard cleared the ball at the end shows that the system is not the only thing that blemishes our defence.

    Juan Jesus and Ostigard is not even a good CB pairing for Serie B. They are awful. I want to blame Rudi, but let's be real - The worst CB's in the game both played for us today.

    What an awful game. Everything is imprecise. Passes, shots on goal everything.

    Ostigard at the end just makes you shake your head. This D cannot keep playing this way. There's nobody even half the quality of Kim out there. Embarrassing effort even with the chances to score. As for Kvara, maybe it's time to concede he cannot sustain what he had going before.
