1:0 win over Verona is fine, just to understand that the rotation is still short, yet we manage to make several shootings. Liverani sure has some idea, especially the rhythm, even the 1st half against Napoli and the starting of game against Bologna, attacking part is nice.
Several teams are having trouble during current situation, Sampdoria Udinese Verona and newly promoted. So 3 points are really precious, while direct competing against those teams.

All i can say is pragmatism, pragmatism, PRAGMATISM. Liverani FINALLY understood that it was more efficent to play a counter attacking type of play than trying to play like barcelona! We took an early lead, we dropped low and controlled the game. Yes, they were awful, but we made them awful. They had nothing. Now if Liverani can use 4-3-1-2 to his advantage, by for example choosing to defend in 4-5-1 and play in a hybrid 4-3-1-2 / 4-3-3 formation. D'aversa wouldve been proud.

Let's see how/if any of the new arrivals fit in as well, we can't do another season of counter attack, better teams will get the lead and rip us apart, worse teams will play us at our game and settle for draws which will not get us enough points....

All the new arrivals hopefully will provide that depth we haven't had the last couple of seasons. One of advantage of relatively unknown players - teams won't know how to play against them. Everyone has figured out what Gervinho does for example and set up their tactics accordingly.

Just read after a result of all testing negative now another player has tested positive - so the squad is "light" for the Udinese game.

It's insane - players are testing positive all over the place and even Genoa talked of using their youth squad it was so bad. The powers that be in football are making a big mistake IMO.

Udinese - Parma 1-1 HT

We scored first against the run of play but Udinese strikes back immediately from a corner.

Udinese is more promising for scoring. Their keeper Nicolas looked suspect, though, if only we could test him more.

We're counting on counter attack chances and longshots to break down their crowded defense. I guess it is hard to have alternative if we don't have a centravanti. We're playing short pass from the back to a fault, a few times got caught getting counter attacked instead. Brugman isn't having a good game, done some miss passes and dwells on the ball too much. He was even the marker who failed to mark Samir, Udinese's goalscorer.

Lots of really poor performance in the Udinese game. Iacaponi (who scored an own goal) and Gagliolo were awful.

2-3 FT

Kurtic didn't have a good game, his mispass led to Udinese's goal. We equalized after a stretching and switch of play ended in Pezzella crossing for Karamoh. Udinese's winner came from hold up play from Okaka, enabling Pusetto to shot from outside. Iacoponi failed to block and Sepe rooted in the spot.

Liverani doesn't know what he got. Should've pack up and defend the draw.
