I didn't know that would have been so difficult. I have often heard many people saying that Sven Goran isn't a resolute man. Last year 4 of our players engaged in controversy with him. Who are these players? Where they will play next year? In Lazio or in some other team? I hope that now I've been more clear!
Good to have this new index-page in Xtratime. A quick check and you find where the Rollster is. Again, go to Brazil every now and then
Jena, on SvenGo, in my book there is a vast difference between an upfront resolute man and a man who quietly kills troublemakers. Or instead of troublemakers, shall I say players who do not obey to authority automatically and on all occasions. Not everyone can shift into shut-up mode so easily.
Apart from that, the right thing was done. Sergio for me was openly angry (and in a whiny way, which I didn't like), Almeyda and Boksic did the same thing in a more agressive way and Salas clearly played the folk hero card. Throw stones on me, but the constant "I'm the perfect Laziale, this is the best club for me, etc" had tactic elements. He also wanted more than SvenGo had to offer for him. So I think the right thing was done, as you need as little trouble in the team as possible. I said it before, I say it again. I think SvenGo would have had little tears if Veron went too. But Crag said no way.
So I think the changes are good. But to call SvenGo now a resolute man is out of bounds. He's a silent killer.
Jena you have a good point here
Sergio was upset in the beggining of the season, he was on the bench often
Salas did the stupid thing at Chelsea
Boksic was first upset and said things after the famous "Arkan-game". Then he copmlained when the shirt was too small
Almeyda acted like an idiot at the end of the season
they are all gone, except from salas. and he is on his way out
Well really what Salas did was not that bad!! Look at what he did for us, he turned down many games for Chile national team just to play for us and then during that week when he was supposed to play for chile, in 2 matches he played 10 minutes!! If he wasnt going to play he should have been told to go play for Chile and maybe find some form there!!
Also if u are going to make a list of trouble makers incluide Couto and Simeone who must have done something pretty bad to be fined and left in Rome. so what salas did couldnt have been that bad to eriksson since he did not fine him!!
About Salas leaving, I only want him to leave if we buy another striker, and the only replacment i would settle for is Palermo or Lucarelli
The fight between Couto and Simeone had nothing to do with Eriksson ! And they resolved their problem very fast too.
But the other players = those who are leaving now were all unhappy with Eriksson.
You are right that Salas turned down the national team to play for Lazio and then he didn't play more than 10 minutes.
But what Salas did against Chelsea away was one of the worst things I've seen. So immature !! He took his jersey off and said a couple of not nice words to Eriksson. And you do this in a game that mean EVERYTHING for Lazio at the moment. Lazio had to win away against Chelsea, where no foreign team had ever won.
The team comes first, and Salas should have thought about that !
I actually like the nick 'silent killer'. Sounds and ominous
Boksic's problem was the most obvious, while Almeyda's and Salas' were less aparent, IMO. But I thought, as for Conceicao, he became more contented at least towards the end of the season?
But of course we can't see what's going on inside the team, we just know what's going on, on the surface.
Still, I think even if the players who've been having problems have to leave Lazio, they should leave without bitter feelings. I think that is actually possible but so far it hasn't been the case
Here we go again:)
This is the place to post your latest verified news regarding players transfers from/to Lazio:)
The mercatto is just arounf the corner, and we already have some strong suggestions about possible new arrivals.
Like Veron, who spends more time in Rome than Manchester:D...
I had the feeling it could happen since they eliminated Inter after penalties. Lazio have a solid tradition of choking in serie A but the Italian Cup is a completely different matter. Most of neautral supporters would have preferred the fairy tale Atalanta to win the cup, but truth is that...
So, this is it boys and girls, the grand finale that we all wanted to avoid. Two teams who have been trying very hard not to make it to the CL will have to decide which one is better at choking. We all know that Lazio excels at that but Inter is a strong contender too.
Parolo and Immobile might...
So here it is, the chance to make the CL after coming short time after time in the last decade. Win and we are there. Don't win and we will need to get a point against Inter next week. Sassuolo's unlikely victory gives us a huge chance to avoid a nerve-wrecking game next week but this being...
