I know Fabio Simplicio is allowed to leave for free this summer, and Marco Bresciano has stated he is unhappy with life at Palermo for the last season or so (I remember Lazio and City were both interested in him). Potential targets?

Simplicio is already being talked about.

Marco Bresciano was interviewed last week as he's back in Melbourne for the final WC qualifiers and he stated that he's happy at Palermo and no longer wants a move back to a more northern or English club.

Although as an Italian-Australian, Bresc would be like a massive bandiera to me if he came to Lazio. He was linked with us in the summer of '06 before he went to Sicilia. I'd hand them a Mauri or a Meghni in exchange for him, but purely on footballing terms, Simplicio is the better player.

Ballardini impressed me alot by taking a very poor Cagliari team out of the relegation zone. On the other hand his stint with Palermo has been so-so. They could have done a little better than the players they have.

It remains to be seen if he can do a good job for more than one season and I hope he has good man management skills to keep the dressing room united.

I'm carefully optimistic. Atleast we didn't go for some loser like Mihajlovic.

Oh come on, lets be grateful of Miha, he is a champion and a Laziale.
Sacked as assistant in Inter and sacked after six months in Bologna. Yeah, what a champion.

Stefano Colantuono was there at the beginning of last season but was sacked after 2 games I think it was. They lost in the cup to Ravenna (interestingly, Ballardini's hometown club) and their first game in Serie A (can't remember who it was against)

Does anyone know what his preferred formation is? a more classic 4-4-2?

Yes, two frontmen and a back four but the midfield is difficult to know about as versatile players like Bresciano have always dictated the shape of his midfields.

Probably a good thing if we lose Ledesma.

If Eliseu is on his way, that shows that we are planning to play a more classic game with two fast wingers and with Ledesma leaving, it looks even more so. Add to that the names that have been out there regarding potential attackers and I think it is becoming clearer what kind of a formation Ballardini is looking for..two positions have been left undiscussed (when it comes to media and transfers) and that is the two central midfielders so it is hard to say if we will have a diamond or a more straight mid midfield, or any other option.

Just speculating...

Well, last season he sometimes used Guana or Nocerino as the holding player and moved Bresciano to play in behind the forwards, leaving Simplicio and Liverani to be the creators. Perhaps he intends to use Foggia as a winger and a trequartista. Thus, Matuzalem would be one of the creators, perhaps Dabo or Brocchi could fill that holding role and then someone like Simplicio will be drafted in.

From what I have seen, it's almost as if he likes 5 players doing the defending and another 5 trying to instigate an attack. I can think of 3 very obvious first team attackers, it's a matter of locating the other 2.

A belated welcome to Mr Ballardini.
Palermo were certainly an improved side with him coaching, however they were also capable of the same inconsistencies that plagued our season. We must hope he can get the best out of our squad with his tactical style and that he manages to avoid too many arguments and problems with players. As for Palermo players that I'd like to see here, well Cavani is obviously the main one. I agree that he'd be overpriced at 12mil but then who isn't overpriced these days? Simon Kjaer has been a revelation according to most sources and although very young would be a very good, if unlikely, signing. I hope we don't get linked with the likes of Guana, Simplicio and Bresciano again now, I don't rate them that highly.

Here is an interesting stat about Palermo last season:

At home, Palermo scored more goals in the league with 42. Away, only Reggina scored less.

Their form differed greatly from home to away which concerns me a little. However, it probably shows more than anything, just how entertaining a side they could be last season.

I would settle for 42 goals in front of the Curva Nord this season.

Definitely Caxi, we need to get back to having a good solid home record, last seasons was miserable. If we could score anything like 42 goals at home that would be a real treat! Good home form takes the pressure off the away performances a little bit and obviously helps the fans morale. If we could still manage 6 or 7 away wins, that would really jump us up the table to the Europa spots.

For sure, we weren't good this season away anyway. Imagine if we had won most of the home games we should, we would have top 6 easy.

From what i understand, Ballardini is to appear in a show in Italy at 20.30 tonight, discussing potential transfers and what it is that he is planning as the new coach of Lazio. If anyone is familiar and has the access to Sportitalia please do give us a short summary of what the new Mister is saying...

No problemo, I'll round it up for you Cash as best I can.

Asked if he was ever close to taking charge at Milan, he said he was never contacted and sought to mention that he was happy at Lazio; a great club. He was asked about Kaka leaving Milan and he admitted that it was one offensive option less but the damage of his departure will be determined on the field this season.

The squad size issue was put to him and he admitted it was big but was keen to add that we are not the only club with this issue.

On Pandev, he said he is not sure what the outcome will be but said he has watched a serene Pandev in training over the last few days.

Asked if Rocchi and Zarate would be partners, Davide said Tommaso was a great player with unique characteristics bu formation will be discussed in the near future.

On transfer targets, he said Eliseu was a good winger that he had been following. He said he could not really speak about targets but said Oliveira was not a tarhet and that Simplicio was never requested. When asked about who makes the transfer decisions, he said "Lazio."

All in all, it was a series of clever responses from the new coach, revealing little about himself or our objectives. You can find the dialogue in Italian here: http://www.lalaziosiamonoi.it/?action=read&idnotizia=5930

Thanx Caxi!

Clever responses yes, and a very straight forward interview without any twists and turns. Guess thats a good thing, for now...
He seems to be an honest and modest man..

I can understand why some people are disappointed and want Ballardini to be sacked but really that's silly.

Ballardini needs to stay. Give the man some time. He has a reputation of starting slowly (remember last season with Palermo). After the Super Coppa triumph and the 2 wins in Serie A everyone was praising him saying that Lotito made the right decision. A couple of games into the season and some bad results doesn't mean Mister is doing a bad job. His ever changing formations and tactics do puzzle me at times, but he's still adapting to the players he has and where they would do best so I can't criticise him for that too much - its something which needs to be done especially when several players are out injured, etc. The early part of this season at least seems like a transition period.

I'm more pissed off at 'El Presidente'.

Its not Ballardini's fault Lotito didn't splash out on a central defender (or anyone really - apart from securing Zarate and Matuzalem). He's done the best he can with the current squad, despite a lack of depth and IMO has gotten a lot out of them. The defense looks better than it did last season - despite losing Rozehnal and De Silvestri. Look at Mauri, Baronio, Radu, Diakite, Matuzalem, also Del Nero and Perpetuini - they have all stepped up big time this season. The January mercato will be key once again. If Ballardini and Lotito can find proper reinforcements (especially so if the club qualifies for the next round of the Europa League) then I really do think the second half of the season could be better than the first. The question is, will Lotito open his pocket for the good of Lazio? Wink
