transfers to rise by different route

Postby xiaolan Wed Jan 24, 2018 7:00 am

Lazio won at San Siro on Sunday. An impressive feat at any time but all the more so on this occasion because they weren’t playing there. It was their neighbours, Roma, who had travelled to face Inter but a 1-1 draw between those teams was as good as a victory for the http://www.officialnhlhockeyonline.com/CHICAGO_BLACKHAWKS-c-1087_1095.html Biancocelesti, who took advantage of dropped points to climb into joint third.

They had done their part by thrashing Chievo 5-1 in the afternoon. So much for the theory that the winter break might cost Lazio momentum. This was the fourth time in 20 games they had hit five or more goals in a match – including a 5-2 win over Spal immediately before Serie A’s one-weekend pause.
Remarkable stuff, especially when you consider they lost Serie A’s leading scorer to injury on Sunday Martin Maldonado Jersey after only 35 minutes. Ciro Immobile should have exited much sooner – tweaking his thigh soon after kick-off and making little impact on the game thereafter. Instead it was Luis Alberto who opened the scoring with a deflected effort, and then Sergej Milinkovic-Savic who restored Lazio’s advantage after Manuel Pucciarelli had equalised in between. The Serbian added an elegant volleyed finish midway through the second half before Bastos and Nani completed the rout of Chievo.
You could argue the final http://www.officialtimberwolvesshop.com/authentic-8-nemanja-bjelica-jersey.html scoreline was misleading. Chievo were competitive for long stretches and things might have gone differently if the penalty they were awarded with the score 2-1 had not been overturned on a VAR review. Yet there is something compelling about the way this Lazio side finishes games – refusing to let up even after an opponent’s will has been broken.
Their 53 goals are the most of any team in Serie A, despite the fact they have a game in hand on the majority. They have got there by a different route to the other frontrunners, too, eschewing possession in favour of fast breaks and faster finishing: a ruthlessly efficient brand of counterattacking football devised by manager, Simone Inzaghi.
It’s a system that exploits the http://www.officialauthenticknights.com/Adidas-Authentic-Colin-Miller-Jersey talent at his disposal. Immobile divides opinion, a centre-forward who lacks the all-around game of the world’s best at his position and who struggled badly when called upon to become a more complete player at Dortmund and Sevilla. Yet his instincts and timing around the 18-yard box are exceptional. Limit his role to what he does well, and he can John Hannah Jersey be very effective indeed.
Likewise, Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto have flourished in roles behind the attack, empowered to carry the ball forward and assault spaces that open up when an opponent overcommits. With Immobile running on ahead of them, defenders are routinely confronted with the stark choice of backing off and inviting one of those two to take a shot on themselves, or risking the ball in behind.
Inzaghi has, in short order, emerged as one of the most promising young managers on the peninsula – a fact that Clay Buchholz Jersey only looks more impressive when you consider he is going against current tactical trends. Not bad for a man who was initially only intended as a caretaker appointment in the spring of 2016 and who got the job full-time only because Marcelo Bielsa changed his mind about taking it in the summer.
Perhaps Lazio could have avoided that whole saga if they had listened to the players. “As soon as [Inzaghi] arrived, he just brought this positive energy that made us feel right,” Milinkovic-Savic said during a June interview with Serbian media. “He created this atmosphere in which everyone trusts their team-mates. There are no cliques – where I might, say, only speak to [compatriots] Dusan Basta or Filip Djordjevic.”
To focus solely on the manager, though, feels reductive. Lazio owe their success also to the recruitment strategy that brought in such players as Milinkovic-Savic – these days a reported €100m target for Europe’s wealthiest clubs – for barely a tenth of that sum in 2015. wholesale nfl jerseys nfl jerseys china nike nfl jerseys size chart nhl jerseys china cheap hockey jerseys nfl jerseys outlet
