camelface The other thing is that EPL current level of economic dominance is sustainable too, so will continue to hurt other leagues

ToniSamp Is it a coincidence that a very bad serie A season coincides with an excellent EPL season? No. You reap what you saw.

Andy Christ OP is right

it's one team league

Yashimi Nakitu You couldn't have been worse than Milan. I am shocked we are/were still fighting for 4th.

Demandred I've only watched Roma games this season (and not all of them) and I am downright amazed we have a decent chance to reach Top 4 given how atrocious we have been. Not a good sign for the league quality.

Primo i would vote no, though it's bad

Thanks for officially coming out as the utter trash you are. Both figuratively and litterally in Napoli's case.

And Allegri put out a team with 2 youth players and Cuadrado in central midfield. That is asking for trouble.

Anyway, Juve losing is never a bad thing. Here's to many more before the season's out

Remove Nainggolan from that

dr hackenbush Benatia, Marquinhos, Lamela, Paredes. Probably forgot some.

You forgot a little detail, they only got Zaniolo due to selling Nainggolan. Plus that midfield doesn't have a DM.

Could add Emerson there from a few years back, I rated him highly.

Costa---------------Kean------------------Cuadrado

Spinazzola---------Barzagli-----Rugani------------De Sciglio


-------------------Perin--------------------------------------

This team would prob finish 2nd or 3rd in Serie A.

Until Inter, Milan and Napoli address that by buying or discovering players of the highest quality, Serie A will basically be as competitive as the Scottish Premier League...
Spal disagree..

Last season Napoli competed well til juve were given a push by the refs against Inter, tbf.

I think Serie A needs Conte or Mourinho at Inter

I'd easily take the Napoli team over the above team. Its just that with signing Ancelotti Napoli killed all chances of competing in the league.

This is quite striking indeed. Take away the current starters, upgrade on de Sciglio and Khedira and it's likely to win Scudetto on its own.

5- Lazio can't profit of the general mediocrity either
6- out of Atalanta no minor club looks able to profit of the general mediocrity

Reza The quality of the league is some of the poorest I remember seeing. Even third is not a huge accomplishment in this season. Defensive quality has been on a downward curve in all the leagues imo and only a handful of teams in a league like Serie A having less than 1 goal allowed per game is not a good indicator.
