My New Year's resolution is communicate amicably with you Ahmed, because the forum is better when you are here.Oops, I was wrong. Gladly so.
Pazzo you beautiful human being.
Now watch us drop points tomorrow - particularly due to shitty refereeing. Refs won't allow us to catch juve.
Although technically if we draw we close the gap to -2, which is not terrible, but ideally we close the gap to 0 as we have Lazio afterwards...
anyhow if the players are not even MORE motivated to win now it's hopeless. They have to be.
But I really don't understand why the ref and VAR would team award that penalty for Verona last night if the league was rigged in Juve's favour? It was pretty damn innocuous.
That is to say nothing of Lautaro's trip against Atalanta or De Ligt's handball in the San Siro. Obviously if the league was rigged against Inter (which it isn't) the refs would have penalsed Lautaro against Atalanta and not awarded handballs against De Ligt (against us and the 3 / 4 others he has been penalised for already this season) or Bonucci's yesterday.
Utterly bizarre logic.
Conte and the players are the ones at fault for playing terribly since the New Year.
Conte's total inflexibility (he should occasionally change something, anything, formation-wise), budget constraints, underperforming players, dud signings (Biraghi and Lazaro) and Juve's far superior squad depth are likely the things that won't allow us to catch Juve in the long-run.
But who knows. They looked awful against Napoli, Fiorentina and Verona and dropped 6 points out of 9. Maybe we can finally get a result against them in Turin this season.
