It's about striking the right balance between the proper dose of catch and release with underachievers, and having the patience to give players with potential time to develop.
Now, Molinaro is 24. To me, with the amount of time he's had to play and consequently suck this season, his cut off period is this summer. If you don't agree, then it's basically because we have an irreconcilable difference on the time line. I have said previously that he would probably be decent cover, but that's really resigning him to a Birindelli level of mediocrity, i.e. replaceable at best at really any point in his career.
Nocerino, okay he's young and showed some potential, but he shouldn't be going backward after a strong start. That's not how you prove you should be playing at a club like Juve. And we already have CZ and Sissoko, with Marchisio showing promise at Empoli and very likely to return. The fact that Nocerino can hussle doesn't make him better than your average Serie B destroyer, let alone a mid-table Serie A club. So how is that good enough for us?
Criscito, sure. Give him another season at Genoa, give him two. But i don't want us to be in the situation where we have to rely on someone like him when we're going up against Roma. And that's just being honest about the quality of depth we need after this shambolic edition of our defence.
I know i'm being a bit harsh on them, but this whole generation has gotten a golden opportunity to make their mark, something many others before them didn't have. If the best they can come up with is a half-assed advocacy to be squad players, then we can do better surely.
