    Lol. You sounded butthurt. I bet it's even worse today!
    When you score the equaliser right before the final whistle you have a good reason to be happy. It felt like trolling.

    We should declare Osimhen covid recovering for the rest of the season so he can't continue devaluing himself

    Bottom feeder teams play the hardest at this time. We went in there like dumb fcks. Spalletti isn’t a winner he is a rich man’s Zeman.

    It's just a shame, we have seen what these players can do, even this season. The frustrations falls on Spalletti and his mismanagement of the team, but it might even be traced back to ADL.

    * Why is Osimhen playing 90 mins every game when he offers almost nothing apart from a goal here and there?
    * why do players like mertens, ounas and elmas not get the chances to play and fail like politano, lozano, insigne, zielinski and osimhen get?
    * a player like ounas has been called selfish and useless based on cameo appearances where he HAD to do something spectacular in limited time to even be considered for the next game. Let me remind people ounas has started 2 games this season and got MOTM in both - politano has 0 motm awards.
    * Elmas is a proper midfielder - zielinski and mertens are not - why do they always start in his position?
    * mertens is better than Osimhen and is actually napolis best forward - why is he being used in midfield?

    This is all without mentioning the tactical decisions spalletti makes, which is a category of dipshit itself

    It all falls on spalletti, especially the obsession with Osimhen is weird - maybe even forced (by adl)

    Spalletti is having a hard time motivating the guys, partly because the football he is having them play is not allowing them to express themselves properly. The players know they can't win the league before this game also. It's been a long season and some already have their mind on the summer.

    Maybe we should play 3-5-2. It's proven to be a winning template in the league. That way they both start up front, but Mertens is no spring chicken like Lautaro and Osimhen has great potential than Lukaku.

    A rich man's Zeman sounds like a dream. If Spalletti was half like Zeman we'd still lose but at least we have more fun. What we've seen in the past 3 games is depressing

    It was revealed this morning that Italiano has a tiny buy out clause window of two weeks in June. The price is 10 million

    The reason this got out is because Napoli inquired with his agent today about his contract details.

    So proof we are already shopping a replacement

    So that settles it. De Zerbi is the next manager.

    I can believe it, but Arsenal will try to sign Domenic Calvert-Lewin first if they can help it. He's a big center-forward, but not quite the classic English hardman:

    I agree to all you say except Ounas. He is useless.

    I am also tired of Rrahmani. Juan Jesus is much better but neither is a top defender.

    For 10 million to get De Zerbi over Italiano is stupid.

    We have to sell.

    Next team starting 11 has to be like this:

    KVARA - NEW - NEW
    NEW - Lobotka - NEW
    OLIVERA - Koulibaly (c) - NEW - Di Lorenzo
    NEW

    If we sell Osimhen, Petagna, Lozano, Ounas, Fabian and Zielinski we can buy a lot of players.

    We need to consider Osimhen; it was an investment that we cannot waste. I also expect far, far more from him, but if you have a team that wins by 2, against Empoli, 10 minutes before the end, only to lose in the end, it is time to just give it up. It is quite safe now to even stop discussing it.

    Based on Spaletti's words, whom I will not defend, but slightly support with analysis, we have two great problems that we simply seem to be incapable of shaking off:

    1st. Mentality. Much has been written on this subject, and I honestly have nothing to say. We need to invent a new word, for ones such as coward, scaredy-cat, chicken, craven, or pussy all seem to fail to convey the meaning when it comes to this team.

    2nd. Complacency. The greatest teams never lose concentration just because it's 2:0 ten minutes before the end, not even in a useless game when they're 15 points ahead, with 3 more games left to play. Even if they do, they don't let them score 2 goals to draw the game, whereas we let 3 in and lose.

    The saddest thing is that I am not even angry with them anymore, for this team has probably realized by now that they are the very definition of what I have just described above. With that in mind, they must already feel like excrement, and a very ugly one at that. According to the articles, Osimhen wanted to argue with fans in anger, while Meret was holding his head in his hands, and Eduardo DL was simultaneously kicking the lockers and screaming.

    No matter what you may think, DL is not the one to blame here. With our budget, we have built a team that has a great ability, or as some here often say, clearly the best team in SA. Who is to blame then? Spal did not oppose Osimhen, and I am quite sure no coach would have done that; therefore, if you cannot make it work, you are to blame.

    And once again, they proved what they had shown right after the game, by not even mustering enough balls to face the media, and try to explain why we always have to be the biggest cowards and fools in the entire football universe. It defies explanation, and we should get it from another perspective, as the coaches can make excuses even while criticizing themselves.

    It is always ugly when you run to the cameras to enjoy praise at the smallest success, yet you shy away from it at the greatest failure.

    A few points.

    1. Osimhen
    Cost 50 million. We have to sell him at 100.

    Note headline was 80 (70 plus 10 bonuses but we gave them three youth players they released a year later and got 20 million for that)

    2. ADL
    He is not to blame but we need new ownership to improve. We need more money.

    I think of we sell Osimhen, Fabian, Zielinski, Lozano, Petagna we will have over 200 million.

    1. Decent keeper
    2. Bremer
    3. Barak
    4. A proper defensive midfielder (a better Anguissa)
    5. Olivera and Kvara
    6. A good striker and right winger

    We need more physical and mentally stringer players.

    @Euphorius Thor

    The team is in ritorno for the rest of the season to address those issues. I see little point for it though. We need a younger manager, more attuned to the latest trends in the game. Spalletti should take a sabbatical before coming back into management.

    Nine points ahead of Roma. If there is a team that can lose this advantage, it is us. Thank God Roma wouldn't win 4 games in a row even in a dream.
