Teams: Sampdoria, Italian NT, Crystal Palace
He has started with the usual arrogance. "I already have clear ideas. You will see".
This is an annoying thing he has learnt at Sampdoria in the last one year and a half, when the team was far from brilliant and blames poured in on him from everywhere.
Truth is that Novellino does not do miracles, he can obtain good results if the team is not too bad, but the way of playing of his teams is boring to say the least. If he has the right players he will surely adopt a 4-4-2, with two wingers running down the flanks, two center midfielders hardly leaving the center of the midfield and just working as a connection between the two flanks and as a barrier for the opponents, one forward who has to be strong in the air, work hard... and mark the playmaker of the opponents! and another forward who has some more freedom.
If things won't go the way he likes he will surely blame the players and those who bought them.
