Not sure if he'll be a top player. He misses too many chances which also cost Poland at the Euros, especially in the Germany game.

Seems like you are judging a 22 year old player based solely on one tournament. Milik didn't have great Euro's but his finishing usually is top notch.

What a disappointment Napoli is in serie A. Inter too, but especially Napoli.

So easy for Juve this Serie A

Btw, what a game between Milan vs Sassuolo.

Didn't imagine we would be that high on the league table..Montella effect I guess. Also proud we had 8 Italians in the first team and 5 of them under 23 in the first squad against Chievo. 8-)

The Milik jury in international duty really was the worst thing that could happen to Napoli.

also, earlier today in the Genoa-Samp derby, the ref had his watch tell him a goal was scored, when in reality it was not. He didn't call it a goal, but not good that the technology is messing up

If they hold on, this would probably be Milan's biggest win in a while.

Was a nice goal by Locatelli.

"Lucky" right, haha. We played very good, amazing goal by an 18-year old!! LOCAtelli my man, not to mention the legend of Donnarumma. Proud of this team atm, they are hustling. Forza Milan.

Was it not a bad decision to take away Pjanic's goal? That decision is what I was calling lucky for Milan

Milan lost 3-0 vs Genoa yesterday...

Sassuolo-Roma
Inter-Torino
should both be good games today. De Boer is on the hot seat for Inter and Torino have been playing quite well. Roma are only 2 pts behind Juve but Sassuolo are never easy.

Meanwhile, Juve are at Sampdoria and should certainly get a result.

They should sell Icardi. I'm sure his teammates don't like him

Rumor is Inter will buy James. That team is a mess, but I'll take it

Looks like Inter will be going after Simeone, James, and Veratti. Good stuff
