2016-2017 Season

After 9 games Torino are 5th with 15 points as a result of 4 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats and have the 2nd best attack of serie A (19 goals) after Roma (23 goals). Andrea Belotti and Iago Falque have scored 5 goals each.
The next game will be tomorrow night at San Siro vs Inter. Mihajlovic will miss just the left back Molinaro (ACL lesion for him and return in March) but will surely change a few players respect to the starting lineup of the game vs Lazio.
Possible lineup: Hart - Zappacosta, Bovo (or Rossettini), Ajeti (or Castan), Barreca - Benassi, Valdifiori, Baselli (or Acquah) - Iago Falque (or Martinez), Belotti, Ljajic (or Boye)

The defeat to Inter (2-1 Icardi 2 and Belotti) caused the anger of Mihajlovic, now blaming Obi for being 25 years old and having cramps "if a 25 yo player has cramps after 60 minutes then he should not be football player, but, rather, an accountant"

Tonight Udinese - Torino.
Mihajlovic: "Beware of Delneri's teams. They have a precise identity".
As regards the team: "I still have doubts but I will surely change something. Boyé will play for sure. De Silvestri could be back. I count on Maxi Lopez, but he is a bit overweight. Ljajic is ok. Belotti and him speak the same language". Castan (inured) will likely be replaced by Moretti.

Entertaining game between Udinese and Torino at Friuli. The final tie is substantially fair if we consider what the two teams did during the 90 minutes.

Cairo is ready to prolong Belotti's contract till 2021 (now the contract expires in 2020), increase the wages and above all set a rescission clause of 90 million euros.

Third defeat in a row for Torino at San Paolo, a pretty bad performance in particular for Torino's defenders, who couldn't prevent Mertens from scoring 4 (!). Mihajlovic once more could just blame his players, rather than his own tactics. This time Sinisa's reprimand was for Ljajic ("a desaster, if Ljajic plays like that then it's better if he doesn't play at all"). I'm not sure blaming his players publicly will improve their performances. More likely, a fringe of players (and maybe not just a fringe) at some point could decide to play like shit until he is fired. For now Urbano Cairo supports the coach "Sinisa knows Ljajic very well and knows how to deal with him".
