Has to be Mancini, he has transformed a team destined for mid-table into a team challenging for a CL spot with Inter, the obstacles which he has ahead of him is tremendous, he doesn't have any money to spend on players which he wants, and with all the ongoing financial problems Lazio has, it is difficult to keep them happy.
But Mancini has motivated them to gear them up for each game, keeping them happy and forget about the problems for the time being, focussing on the match.
Must be Capello, because he hasnt stayed in a promised, he has delivered everywhere he has gone, and he has sensi who doesnt really helps much at Roma.
Lippi failed terribly at Inter, he has the Ref on his side and still if he doesnt have the best possible squad of the season he wont deliver. Juve has a super team but their defense is not outstanding and look how underpar they look.
Ancelotti failed at Juve, but he has improved a lot. Still the best for me by far is Capello. However I love how Del Neri´s team plays.
To me the most overrated ones are Zaccheroni and Mancini.
Yeah, roster which is about two times worse than Inter's and yet we have as many points as you. Really, Mancini has his flaws most of which come from lack of experience. But to say he is as bad as Zac... I can't agree (yes, I am fully aware how biased my view is, flame me! ) - Zac had Nesta, Crespo, Mendieta etc in Lazio and he was barely able to get to the sixth place. Even with his limited squad depth Mancini rotates his players regularly except those who have not any substitution even close to their class (like Stam). He still has a lot to learn before catching up with the light of Capello but I would dare to say he is one of the most promising young coaches in the world right now. Prandelli lso deserves mention for his ability to cope with endless changes in his roster and still having a competitive team.
So i was the only one voting for Del Neri? i like coaches that play attack football. Del Neri was not even a former player but took Chievo to Serie A where he managed to become a mid table team and even beat the big boys. He's done a great job and could hopefully coach a bigger club soon.
These guys should also get a mention, all great coaches.
Cosmi was good the previous few seasons, he's and ass but a charismatic person. I wonder what he would do with a bigger club. Mazzone and Trap are the 2 worst ones. Goo defensive minded and old fashioned.
I think that Mancini in the future will be the best.
Also now he made a great Lazio,inside and outsuide the stadium.
He created the group,he gave an identity to this team.The society stolen him his most rapresentative players,every year,but he continued to win.
He's great,he has just to learn to accept that a team can't win always.
Then for me Novellino is great.Let's consider only that this year he brought to national level 3 players as Bazzani,Volpi and Bettarini,and for me also Diana.Let's consider that the greatness of sampdoria is the total way of playing,the group,the anger,all images of the coach.
Lippi,outside Juventus,without refrees'favours,can't do anything.
Del Neri for me he's just able to choose the right players from lower societies..
Prandelli is really able to work with young players,and this is a great quality.
Mazzone is the best.
He's the image of love for football,even now,that football is terribly ill.
Well since Dean made a point out of saying the best in Serie A, I go for Lippi. His record is unmatched. People say that any coach could win the league at Juventus but Ancelotti tried and failed. Lippi opened with a total knockout, 10 points clear of Lazio in his first season at the club, now that's something.
In his years at Juve Ancellotti reached the best Juve records,really incredible results.
His unluck has been that the first year in Perugia was raining(at the end of the season),the second year that Roma was really greater than that Juve,probably that year Moggi didn't pay the refrees ...I don't know..
28+22+15=65 total participation in serie A for the freshly promoted clubs, who replace Chievo, Empoli and Frosinone who had total 32...
Now that all the coaches are official or almost official let's talk about the players.
- according to La Gazzettadello Sport Luis Muriel, who has returned to Sevilla after the loan spell at Fiorentina, will move to Atalanta. Cost: 18 million euros. Muriel got injured in the game of Copa...
TAR admitted Entella to serie B. Entella might be the first Italian club to play games in serie C and then in serie B in the same season. It's the new episode of a crazy season started with 19 clubs who chose to start the season in contempt of the rules and with the support of the same Lega serie B.
Torino have been kicked out of the Europa League by Wolverhampton, Atalanta look very close to elimination from the CL and probably from EL too as they will likely be fourth in their group after losing two games to Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk. They pretend they can defeat Manchester City...
