My point is 'results are good' in Serie A is very relative and like I said before 4th is not that impressive really.
4th is what we need to get. More than that is very hard considering the opposition (Juve, Napoli, Inter). Less is underachieving, even if Roma and Lazio are decent teams.

I don’t think Gattuso should stay if he qualifies to CL, at least unless he truly masterminds a brilliant second half of the season and gives Juve a scare or sonething: fat chance of that happening.

But what would be the point in replacing him with a manager that has shown no sign that he could do better? If it was to solve a mid-season crisis, I get it. Sometimes you need change, shake the team up, in fact just like when Gattuso arrived and saved our season. But sack him if he has a decent campaign (4th) only to get another Gattuso? Rinse and repeat? I mean if it makes you happy, sure, but I don’t see what’s the point other than venting frustration at the current manager, then the next, then the next.

All said and done, for me the issues are three;
1) If we finished 4th, qualified for the CL and there's no top class coach available, then Gattuso should stay on.

2) We finished 4th, qualified for the CL and a top Manager like Conte, Zidane, Wenger, Sarri (it's Chelsea so you never can tell &#128516 become available, we get him and say thank you to Gattuso.

3) Results keep getting worse or stay same. Then in this case we sack Gattuso and get someone in the mould of Jardim, Giampaolo, Gasperini, Donadoni. While not top notch coaches, these are certainly better coaches than Gattuso and will do a better job.

Agreed, except I don't think Wenger belongs with the very elite ones these days, and I really don't rate Donadoni.

Still I'll trust Wenger with a team in the CL than Gattuso 😂.

I agree about Donadoni. I just feel he's a better coach. Meaning if it's a strict choice between the two, I'd pick Donadoni.

No idea what dream world you guys live in.

This make belief fantasy is even funnier than thinking this predicament is the coach's fault.

I hope you do end up with Wenger. That'd be entertainment level 9999.

No 4th for us. Doubt Donadoni gets more from this squad.

We have not scored for 4 consecutive games. Bring back Kalinic.

So who's going to be the next coach?

Pirlo? Kaka? Serginho? Milan might as well sign MARADONA, Dags bets his presence alone will help increase your attendance numbers.

I just don't understand why Gattuso never consider to play 4-4-1-1/4-2-3-1 with Hakan as Trequartista (Hakan's natural role), Gattuso is brave enough to play with 4-4-2 but not with 4-4-1-1.

That Turk guy is hopeless. Hope Leipzig will purchase him in January.

I'm fairly disappointed in Leonardo's & Maldini's approach towards this issue. Maybe hoping they would have fired Gattuso straightaway when they came in was a tad too progressive, but right now that's a no-brainer really! There's an inherent problem with Gattuso's management. If they can't see that for themselves & would still stall for more points against relegation side(s), I give up really... That's the only viable window we will ever have to try & save the season! Ball's in their court.

No expectations..No disappointments

In retrospect, I wished Seedorf had this support and backing of the management then. Who knows, we may not gone through these coaches merry-go-round. I doubt he would do worse than Inzaghi, Brocchi and Gattuso.

After a meeting between Gazidis, Leonardo and Maldini, the club confirms Gattuso in his job and expresses full confidence in him.

The win against SPAL grants him another 3 weeks extension.

If they don’t fire him now they better stick w him till end of season otherwise they will look like total amateurs if they fire him midway through the second part of the season.
