what you think
Someone from abroad, although its not Juve way. I would take Descahmps back, or lets say Jardim.Honest question, what coach would you hire?
Have to agree in general here. That midfield is actually pretty damn good, and at any rate on paper it's better than Ajax's, even if they have promising players. Pjanic- Matuidi - Emre is rock solid, and most managers would definitely pick that over De Jong - Schöne - Van de Beek. The same is true for every line really.I'm sorry, but while our midfield is not great it's hardly awful either. These guys are all internationals, we lack something more to have an elite midfield, but it's hardly piss poor.
That's no reason to deflect blame from Allegri for not preparing us at all for this game and for other big games in the CL.
I knew when we lost that game at home to Man Utd in the group stage that nothing had changed and we would underachieve again.
He does not know how to set up to win important games like this one on a consistent basis.
Deschamps has contract with France till euro 2020 and latest reports say extended when they qualify.Someone from abroad, although its not Juve way. I would take Descahmps back, or lets say Jardim.
Allegri is great at reacting and adapting at different circumstance, but at the same time, we have some amazing dip of form with him in charge, when he seems unable to react at whats happening - against Atletico away this season we could have conceded 5 goals in the second half, yesterday we were lucky Ajax didnt score 4 goals for 30 minutes, there was Tottenham at home since the 30th minutes last year, the cl final against real and so on and so on. The players change, the coach remains the same, his explanations - too.
I like Allegri a lot, but yesterday result was exceptionally bad and his excuses (bad luck, injuries) were bad too.
Cancelo was reason we conseeded in the first leg. The guy who played on his side terrorised him all game.Have to agree in general here. That midfield is actually pretty damn good, and at any rate on paper it's better than Ajax's, even if they have promising players. Pjanic- Matuidi - Emre is rock solid, and most managers would definitely pick that over De Jong - Schöne - Van de Beek. The same is true for every line really.
The problem is more that they couldn't even remotely dominate that second half when they needed to put pressure, that someone like Dybala can be this poor in such a big game, and as someone just wrote before you perhaps lacked key leaders (but it's as if guys like Can or Ronaldo are not also very strong personalities). Also playing De Sciglio over Cancelo is just baffling to me. All that is on Allegri.
I have to say though,moe than anything this Ajax team just looks brilliant, and was particularly good last night. It's hard not to focus on your own team but they have been looking just unstoppable. And still, I'd add that, in rather typical fashion, against the run of play, you were not that far from giving them a good scare.
