  1. I am really fed up with Pioli’s obsession with Krunic who is a Seria B level player. I don’t really get what he sees in him!

  2. I dont know if anyone has ever brought it up but, why not try Rebic as a right winger?? It’s crazy to think that both pur best wingers are Left wingers and we never tried playing both of them
