    Simeone can only do defence the rest do everything by themselves

    I am a die hard Atleti fan but in the future I would love to see him spur on an Inter or Marseille revival...

    I believe that in the Tromsø vs Chelsea game Frank mentioned, that Chelsea were already down 2-0 by the time the snow began to cover the field.

    He's the best manager in the world

  • Swim With Coach Raven

    He wasted money on Alvaro morata, Joao Felix and Suarez. All can score goals but they need their back up to score. Bayern don’t need a backup. Their winger can takeout the whole team

    Simeone is not going anywhere. Why would he?.. He is an Atleti man, he spent years there as a player. Also, he is the best paid manager in football!.. LOL

    Simeone to coach Milan...WHAT!?!?! I can not believe he just said that as a paid analyst!! Simeone is an Interista and will NEVER NEVER NEVER be our coach EVER!! Milan has and always will be attacking team! Defensive past huh??? He is 100% clueless.

    You clearly know nothing about Serie A.. he will never coach Juve or AC Milan they hate him. As a player he had Neymar's acting skills and Pickford tackles, he can only replace the other fraud at Inter.

    I have to commend this extra time - the chairing, the questions (some brilliant ones taking us to football in a past era), the answers, and a background musical beat turned right down (better to turn completely off) so as not to interfere with the voices.

    “The pitch was impossible to play and we lost 2-0” if it was impossible to play how did the other team score 2 goals?

    those who r saying simeone is playing defensive, go and watch his gameplay this season, Atleti has scored maximum goals and still unbeaten at la liga with 2 games in hand. Against bayern they tried to play offensive thats why they conceded 4 goals which they dont usually. Still many games left, dont judge him for 1 bad defeat. if cholo wanted he would parked the bus whole game and just conceded 1 goal or maynot be nothing, but he decided to play different for experiment.

    • I'm Nobody

      He tried Sevilla's blueprint for Bayern,but it turned out to be a bad one. Bayern knew what opposition would do and played 4-3-3 opposed what they usually player (4-2-3-1). But its a shame that they still ended with only 1 shot on target.

    Simeone wants to manage intermilan though,and Milan actually go towards attacking style now,with Rafael leao,Calhanoglu, Castillejo,rebic etc

    He is actually a very good coach. It just that Atletico always sell their top players. Had they kept the squad that won league I believe Atletico would still be competing dor the leagus.

    I have a feeling that if atletico, buy one world class forward like mbappe and find suitable replacement for partey , it would be in that next level. That team there can surely win a ucl for ya.

      @sho2k totally agree which is a shame. Even when these guys are playing much better, mount will always get in to his team as he see's himself in him and he's english. Leeds utd and everton to finish above chelsea and if man utd win by more than 3 goals, frank should be given his marching orders

    • Adeel Chaudhry
      Adeel Chaudhry Month ago +1

      Yep and thats the reason why i've always wanted simone to be chelsea manager. Lampard is a fraud and the sooner he gets the boot the better and hopefully we can get simone and he can sort us out by playing kante in his correct position and stop playing mount/jorginho who we should sell for 30/50 mil. defensive football is equally important as attacking football as the whol nonsense, the right way to play is flawed as you play based on players you have and to get results.
