That voting is completely recency biasm. There is no way Smalling should be that close to Manolas in voting, just because he been decent of half a season for them. Manolas was a genuine top CB for several years for them.
Let me enlighten you. Mike Smallish is an absolutely awful football player. He can't pass or read attacks, he always loses out when he goes to ground (tackle) and his first touch is worse than Romelu's. We had him from Fulham who just recently took him from non league Maidstone United.

He's rivalling NESTA ffs. Don't you see how bad Serie A is? You know these player are awful before they joined (see your posts about Young) but they end up being legends of the decade. Manolas is a seriously bad defender and you're putting him above a warrior like Mike.

I been over this with you already, you have litterally zero clue about Serie A, and have this childish and retarded pride to invent and irrationally shit on Serie A for no reason whatsoever.


Stick with what you know, not a single thing of anything you say about anything Italian football has made sense. Stop wasting our times.


I mean, its not even funny, its just useless. You litterally said in another thread the French League is the better league.

You know who doesnt even say that? The French.

He had a great game against Cagliari, I have to admit.

Solid defensively (Cagliari did nothing down his side) and a brilliant assist.

Let's hope he keeps this up because Candreva has gone off the boil in a big, big way recently.

Watching Young makes you realize how awful our wingbacks actually are. Asamoah excluded, but he seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth.

Biraghi is the most frustrating player to watch, I can't put my finger on it but it seems like he's always one step off the pace of the game.

So are there any other washed up wingbacks we can pick up from Man U? Is that Antonio Valencia fella still around?

I'm with you on Biraghi. When he gets the ball, my faith drops a bit.

Asamoah was amazing at the start of the season...and then, boom - injured. I think giving Lazaro more games in that position would have been a better option, tbh.

Big Tony plays in Ecuador now.

What about Gary Neville for manager?

The assist aside, Young should have also won a penalty on his debut, he was amazed it was not given but it's Serie A and Inter are close to juve… so this shit happens.

YOUNG: "I'VE RECEIVED A FANTASTIC WELCOME, THIS IS A GREAT TEAM"

The English wideman was interviewed by Sky Sport: "The Nerazzurri fans are wonderful"

MILAN – His adventure in Italian football has only just begun, but he’s already been thrown into the thick of things out on the pitch. Ashley Young has already played two full games as a starter, once on the right flank against Cagliari (during which he provided an assist for Lautaro) and once on the left wing against Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia. The Englishman has made a great impact and had the following to say when interviewed by Sky Sport after Inter’s win against Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia: “It’s been a very positive start, I like it here. I’ve really enjoyed it so far, also because I’ve had a fantastic welcome from everybody, from both my teammates and the staff. It’s been a really smooth transition for me. The only disappointing thing was the draw against Cagliari: it was a match which we needed to win. However, things have begun well for me.”

Young provided an assist on his league debut: “It’s always great to provide your teammates with opportunities to score, let’s hope more assists are around the corner.” From the very start, his name has been sung all around San Siro: “The Inter fans are incredible, their support is impressive and lasts throughout. They constantly sing, they support you, push you on and dedicate chants to you. It’s wonderful.”

On the differences between the Premier League and Italian football: “Serie A is definitely more of a tactical league. I don’t have any preferences: left or right, I’ll play wherever the Coach decides to put me.” Young also spoke about his relationship with Conte: “He wanted me when he was at Chelsea. He’s fantastic, ambitious and spurs you on in the quest to achieve set objectives. I joined Inter from Manchester United because I knew that I’d have the opportunity to play on a regular basis. I’m really happy to have been given this opportunity.

“Inter have a great side: I followed them before I arrived, now that I’m here I’ve become more aware of this after every training session. There’s a desire to win, this is a historic and prestigious Club. By fighting together we can aim for big things. Right now, however, we need to take it one game and competition at a time. Then there will be time to look back and see what we’ve achieved.”
