Allegri (part II)

Okay, I admit it. I may have spoken too soon. This 4-3-3 formation seemed to work quite well today! If he gets us through the group stage in the Champions League and a nice draw in 2nd round, then I’ll give him my support until the end of the season.

Been a Juve fan Since 1978. Still in love with Platini. Was at Heysel with my older brother.

  1. The new module is perfect for our team, because:

    1) this module is more offensive than previous (3-5-2)
    2) we play with our top players, that are midfielders (Pogba, Marchisio, Vidal, Pirlo and Pereyra)
    3) Pirlo has more freedom because the opposite defenders and midfielders are employed in marking
    4) the biggest european teams (Real, Barca, etc) play with 4 defenders
    5) Barzagli (our greatest defender) is out because of injury

    I hope, I enjoy, I love Juventus

  2. Why are or were you not in favour of Allegri though? Why you so against his appointment?

    jucoll10 (Mario), Your number 3 point I thought was going to read…. 3) Pirlo has more freedom because the opposite defenders and midfielders are employed in marketing

    Like I’ve said before we just switch from 3-5-2 to 4-4-3 to whatever formation we need before, during and after the games

    I’ve just finished watching Argentina against Croatia which I think was held where West Ham play Boleyn Ground or Upton Park (any London folk go?)…. was a good game with Tevex and Pereyra coming on in the second half and playing some nice football… A. Halilović looks very good – definite star of the future (he’s 18 in Barcelona II).. reminds me of Rakitić…

    1. I just don’t rate Allegri all that highly as a manager. He only won half of his games with Milan, and only about a third with Cagliari. I think he’s over-dependant on the trequartista. If kaka/cassano/robinho doesn’t play well, the team struggle. In my opinion, there are many better managers out there.

      ps, West Hams stadium is called the Boleyn Ground and it’s built on an area called Upton Park. Same place.

  3. Marking, no marketing!!!

    I’m not opposed to Mister Allegri. I prefer this module because I hope to win in Europe competition. The 3-5-2 isn’t good against Real, Barca, Bayern Munchen, etc.
    The 3-5-2 module is submissive setting and “we aren’t masters of events at 100%, but we wait only”.
    In italy, only low level teams play with this module (example: Mazzarri with Reggina, Napoli, Inter)

  4. Agreed the 3-5-2 isn’t working in Europe. Conte was about to go with a 4-4-2. I don’t mind if Allegri tries the 4-3-3, but whatever plan A is, he needs to have a plan B, which I felt he lacked at Milan if the trequartista was man-marked.
