      And a nice paragraph from him here on the end of his playing career:

      "Now time has come and tapped me on the shoulder, telling me I have to grow up. He said, from tomorrow, you will be an adult. Take off your shorts and boots, from now you are a man and can no longer smell the grass, feel the sun in your face, the adrenaline that consumes you and the satisfaction of celebrating."

      from:

      Italians - always pragmatic but philosophical with it!

      You could never imagine a British player coming out with something like that could you? It'd be all 'yeah err, yeah I fought it was the right time, I ain't err getting any younger, yeah I err fought I wanted to go out on a high'

      Milan doing great job on the market, Calhanoglu, MUsachio, Andre Silva, Rodriguez and now Bonucci, looks like they will be back in the CL next season.

      Was watching the Juventus match earlier, and f**k me, what a game from start to finish. Juventus awarded a pen when it was 1-2 to Lazio (Lucas played well btw!) in the last seconds, but Lazio keeper saved it!!!!

      I watched that. It would have been a crime had Juventus (or Italy's premier footballing crime syndicate) had equalised as they totally did not deserve anything from that match. Lazio were excellent, well organised and as you note Lucas was superb.

      Delighted Dybala missed the penalty! :D

      The Icardi show (check out his 2nd goal guys, it was a world class finish!). Thoroughly enjoyed the Milan derby!! Started to watch more Serie A games now since being recommended Jorginho by a friend, now I am hooked!

      Enjoyed the match tbh, and was impressed with how Jorginho was in possession as usual, but they, like us lack that #9.

      Very good, he is their main #6, and with De Vrij at the back, they are difficult to beat, especially with Immobile up top. They are at home vs Cagliari on BT sports 19:45 tonight if you want to watch them, i certainty will!

      Icardi is such a clinical striker! I wonder which big club will go for him next summer.

      I wonder if there is a better deep lying playmaker in world football than Jorginho? I swear, I would literally trade Coutinho for Jorginho at this moment.

      Still would ask the question of why he doesn't get more international recognition,  he is good but i wouldn't swap him for couts

      Yeah, I don't get how Montolivo and De Rossi are ahead of him. Jorginho, Verratti and Candreva  would be quite a sickening midfield.

      I just love my #6 specialist players, and perhaps the area I focus on more when watching a match. I still believe the #6 is the most important outfield role, hence the reason why I would be happy with a straight swap for Jorginho.
