I just looked at his Instagram and it seems hes been in Western Australia for ages so this move mustve been a long time coming.

Lazio seem to let these unwanted players go where they want if it improves their chances of finding a new club. It strikes me as weird and I'd love to know how it actually works, as in, do they get paid to be elsewhere.

Anyway, I'm sad it didn't work out for Chris at Lazio. I'm no football scout, but there's certain players that you catch in youth systems and you can't really see scope for improvement and Ikonomidis has always struck me as one such player. For what it's worth, Crecco is another, and the club might just be learning to be a little more cutthroat in this regard.

I hope I'm wrong and that we'll see Chris rise through the ranks of the game in time, but I kind of feel has been coming for years given that Simone Inzaghi knows him better than anyone and never really seemed to believe in him as a Lazio first teamer.

Agree. But there's a big gap between Lazio and the A-League.

I would've preferred to see Chris choose to go to a Serie B club personally.

My thoughts exactly. It sounds like he could do better than the A-League and a season with a Serie B club may have been the right platform to move onto bigger and better things.

After Italy has played their friendlies the press is all over Balotelli. Funny how they say he "lacks football intelligence". He lacks intelligence in general but I guess saying that someone "lacks intelligence" and is stupid is not the same thing?!

Mancini and his players...Belotti and Immobile on the bench while Balotelli is playing...good old Mancini, wants to get sacked as soon as possible. As a player he was one of the best, but as a person and a manager he is shit.

Luckily Balotelli is not our problem. He could have been though, Lotare just might be stupid enough to bring 10IQ player to our club.

Easier to be a star in Australia, live a very comfortable life and cement a national team place I guess.

Would NT coaches watch him week in, week out in Serie B? Not a chance. Serie A is barely on the Australian radar, let alone Serie B.

Vicari and SPAL now in second place. Hes a dedicated Laziale, maybe someone the club could consider signing in January?

Cionek & Felipe right & left from him have had real solid games so far, especially that 34y old Felipe.
Lazzari would obviously be the catch from the SPAL team but that would cost big bucks.

Petagna sinking Atalanta with a brace, that had to sting a little especially since he celebrated both goals like crazy.  Still owned by Atalanta and not certain of having to return there next summer ....  :whistle:

Mauricio Pocchettino admitted Spurs were in for Keita a year go, but Lazio chose to sell him to Monaco. That info surely has implications for the Jorge Mendes conspiracy theory.

Thanks to Cathal's info and earlier post in the 'numers we love topic', we are now informed of some correct figures.  Numbers i've now also adjusted in the locked summer & winter mercato posts.

It was reported Lazio paid 6.5mil for Marusic but according to the books we now know it was 5mil.
For Caceres we tought is was 0.6mil but it appears now it was 1.287mil.
For Durmisi it was 7.5mil instead of the reported 6.5mil.
And for Sprocati it wasn't 2.5mil but 3.25mil.

We didn't sell Felipe Anderson for 38mil but for 31mil.
Keita went for 29mil.
Hoedt for 16mil.
Biglia for 17.5mil.

31 for Felipe? Is that all in one installment and is it the final number?
