A draw, combined with a Milan win, would send them through to the CL!We have nothing to play for and our friends in Firenze need to win this to be sure of CL qualification. I want Milan and Fiorentina for different reasons in the CL, so I'm really not feeling strongly about this match. It would be nice to end the season on a positive note. Perhaps a draw would be fair then?
Playing schedule. Whilst our performances havent been the best, for the future of ITALIAN football (aka Montolivo, Donadel, Pasqual, Pazzini, Osvaldo, Gamberini, Lupoli, Cacia, Semioli), it's better that we do play that round of CL football.Its not like Fiorentina have not gifted us the chance to reach 4th, so its not like you have earned the right to be there either so far.
It is fair that it comes down to the last game. And again, it is likely that fiorentina (about 66% chance) will make it to the Champions League next year, even if only for the first round.
This year you were Italy's finest representation in Europe,and congratulations for that.Playing schedule.

I mean lets face it - we eliminated 2 Champions League teams out of Europe this season (PSV and Rosenborg)...what did Milan do p?
It reflects upon the nature of our 'top' teams -This year you were Italy's finest representation in Europe,and congratulations for that.
The fact that it was a UEFA Cup semifinal, shows the state of our football:
Ormai un campionato provinciale.
It's ok, you won't!I dont agree with you guys about something tho. Saying that Torino should play the primavera team and take it easy. That is not cool and Fiorentina is supposedly the best team in serie a concering fair play so Torino should go out and give it their all in front of their fans.
And Di Michele will put every shot from six yards on target.Now that there's nothing for Torino to accomplish, expect a huge game from Recoba. I predict a hat-trick. :howler:
and rubin's returnWe won't field all our primavera team. We will probably give some of our better youth playeers a chance. As chinaren said we will probably see Nitride, Asamoah, and Malonga at some point. Also wouldn't be surprised to see Lys Gomis in goal.
Somehow I think we will field something a bit weaker than that. I expect to see the Malonga, Asamoah, Rubin, Nitride, and Gomis on the field at some point or another.
Flattered Don't worry, we won't roll over for Fiorentina, in fact I think we'll start strong with Rubin and perhaps Malonga and depending on how the game is going we'll introduce some other players. We don't want to throw this game away, but I don't want to pass up the opportunity to test some of our younger potential stars either.An italian giant should never do that :stuckup:
