So you don't watch the games but you say you know how many points teams are going to make and how good they are.
No one can predict the future, but those who don't watch definitely
Sorry, I could not watch all serie A games even if I wanted. And yeah, it might happen that people who don't watch ALL the games might have a clue while people who pretend they watch every game have none, the way there are people who need one minute to learn a thing and people who would not learn it in one century.
I don't have anything against your boy Giampaolo, just call it as I see it -- so far this is the worst Milan I've ever seen. By a distance. I've watched almost every game, every season for the past 30 years.
It is not "my boy", dear community manager, he is just a former coach of Sampdoria. I won't enter the "it has been the worst Milan..." thing, a supporter thing, a hyperbole. Bad? Ok. So far it is just 6 games anyway. I understand it could be more than enough in football, but I also know it ISN'T really enough to judge the work of "my boy" or anyone else, dear community manager. After 6 games you might have the feeling it is not going to work forever and prefer to change the coach, fair enough.
Milan so far are much, much worse than last season in all aspects of the game, with a similar or better squad. This is not just fans' impressions. Look at the stats from the games. Look at the formations in some of the games. Look at the things the managers says when he talks to the press. Look at the results and against who they were. It's all objectively shit.
I don't understand the reason why you go on repeating this when I have never written anything which might suggest the opposite. Actually I have written Giampaolo had similar problems at Sampdoria in the first 6 games of his first season. You want him sacked? Let's hope together that he will be sacked! Hopefully he will also come back to Sampdoria at the beginning of the next season.
You can repeat the amount of points and the Roma teams spiel, but the reality is that what matters is how you do relative to other teams.
It matters the amount of points you gain at the end of the season because 68 points is not enough for the CL spot most of times. I'm not sure I get your argument anyway. Is Milan really any better if Roma and Lazio choke? I was talking about points and using Roma and Lazio just to tell you that almost reaching a target thanks to the other clubs choking doesn't mean that in the following seasons the situation might be similar.... unless "my boy" affects the performances of Lazio and Roma too.
You mention Juve and Allegri, but this is a poor Milan, not a brilliant up-and-coming Juve, and Giampaolo has the CV of a mediocre manager, whereas Allegri had already won the league and generally performed above expectations for Milan.
I'm pretty sure I have explained before that I don't think Giampaolo(or anyone else) had a real chance to enter the top 4 of serie A. The one with Juventus was just a huge example of a club having a very poor start of the season in terms of points and turning things for the better (much better indeed!). I was not going to compare Milan to Juventus for sure! There are many examples, Ahmed mentioned another, a better one indeed, because I remember the supporters of Atalanta saying that Gasperini was an idiot.
Giampaolo's career is divided between good spells at Ascoli and Empoli (i.e. midtable finishes), a bunch of failures at teams like Cesena, and more mid table finishes at Sampdoria. People may say very nice things about him, but I see no reason to believe that he can take this Milan to anything higher than midtable, and a lot to believe that the longer he stays, the more likely a catastrophic outcome.
Your opinion. It is as good or as bad as any other opinion.
If Milan keep playing like a Serie B team, as anyone who actually watches the games will agree, things won't look great.
I'm not sure I find that line in which I wrote Milan played great football up to now, maybe you can help me with your super community manager powers... I believe I just wrote that I think Giampaolo can turn things for the better, if he is given the chance (which I doubt). At Sampdoria he was one goal of Bruno Fernandes in the loss time away from being sacked, before things turned good, so you understand episodes are crucial.... but I'm talking to a guy who watched almost all the games in the last 30 season so I don't need to tell him that episodes are crucial in changing the fate of players, teams... and coaches!
