    He will fail miserably in EURO 2016 and Italy will be in the same position again over 2 years. They need a proper coach, Mancini isn't fit for the job. He had the best players at City and only got 1 title and 1 FA Cup.

    yeah, we talked about Capello and the others on the previous page:
    I'd have expected a group stage exit in the World Cup before they themselves are set to host would be cause for alarm in Russia; I'd have expected a customary firing of the manager to follow ... I'm guessing Capello's severance package is preventatively large ... :bwtf:

    thanks for the link ... and there we see it: reportedly £15m severance ... they wouldn't have bothered with all this parliament bullsh!t if they could have viably got rid of him ... looks like they're trying to intimidate him into handing in his resignation ...

    Youre becoming pathetic. Now you rely on our training facilities and youth development to find talents.

    Steal back? His dad is German, he is German. I'm not sure if the kid would qualify for an Italian passport.

    But speaking of Gaudino, I'm really excited about this kid. Love that this club continues to produce youth and give them a chance.

    I'm not as familiar with Italian immigration law, nor the distant ancestry of 17 year olds as you seem to be.

    He's a 17 year old who I had never heard of until this summer. So yeah, knowing the nationality of his grandparents, when he doesn't even have a Wikipedia page, is pretty crazy.

    not just players, managers too:
    ~5 mil salary, 1.9 from the Italian FA, and 3 from Puma ...

    anyway, really not happy with this ... Conte brings 3-5-2, ineptitude in the European competitions, and several bridges burnt or damaged with non-Juve players ... :kader:

    Since the quote is in Italian, I can only guess at what it actually says but a player or manager's wages being subsidised by the team's sponsor isn't the same as what you (in typical dickish format) quoted yourself as saying.
