I saw the headline 'Lazio to play Arsenal' and thought it was likely to be away from Rome so would be in London. Great. But sadly no. Still, good for the Swedish Laziali, although two unfortunately missing already.

Wow! I dont visit the forum for more than 24 hours n there comes crazy rumors. :supsmile:

Basically, I dont like this Pedro's signing. I mean, dont we learn something with Nani? Players that rely in speed on their game are useless when they are getting older. I'm just a bit surprised reading the probability of us spending more than 20mil for a player n we're just not sure where we can field him! I'm so used to with cheap ass Lotito who always try to spend as little money as he can for a player. :razz:

Evesto, KDB played all over the place in the WC, but wing back?

He actually did against France.  De Bruyne and Hazard were leftwing as Dembele took his place centrally.  A tactic to trouble the young Pavard and it almost worked but didn't succeed because KDB had an off day.  He moved inside a lot of course.

Lazio (3-5-2): Strakosha; Wallace, Acerbi, Radu; Marusic, Lucas, Parolo, Sergej. Lulic; Luis Alberto, Ciro

This is probably our strongest line up right?

But the forum has spent so much of the last couple of months talking about depth, talking about the need to replace Felipe Anderson, about the need for a vice-Ciro, some competition with Marusic.

Pedro solves all those problems.

And what do we read? Too old. Too expensive. Doesn't fit in the team. Etc.

This would be the major point in signing him.  Inzaghi likes versatile players and not a big fan of rotating much in Serie A.
I'm not a Pedro fan but i can certainly see the reason why he'd arrive.

Felipe and Nani replaced by 1 player.  Possibly able to also sub Ciro (meaning no Caicedo).  Possibly able to play wingback (meaning no Basta or Patric on the wing).  4 spots for one experienced and capable player. 

We should not be pinning down starting positions.   No player can play our amount of games.  Alberto is still struggling with something since April.  Felipe missed half a season last time because of an injury.  When having the ambition the club has spoken out one needs quality backup ready.

Felipe and Alberto are valued higher then Pedro in prices yet they had to share last season, and we still had to bring in Nani to handle all the games.  I don't see why Pedro would have to be the only choice for a certain position because of his previous career and being known.

To buy Ciro one would have to pay Lotito 70mil or more, for Alberto probably 50mil.  For me Pedro does not push them aside.

If Pedro arrives and has to rotate with both Alberto and Marusic or maybe even Ciro he will not complain about getting minutes.  He'll be exhausted.

But i wouldn't be fond in this situation to get both Pedro and Gomez.  That could actually give problems, that's why i don't believe that might happen.  A young talent like Wesley if Caicedo moves, that would fit.

Eto'o played in a 433, not really a wing back.

In my thinking RWB is everything about the work rate. And Pedro who is  30 years old is no match to Marusic.

If it's about work-rate, Pedro most certainly wins over Marusic in my opinion.

Pedro's career has been built on his willingness to run. Marusic isn't lazy by any means, but he's not scoring highly in our fitness tests and he was having serious issues playing more than one game a week last season.

The rest of your point I understood - Pedro is not a classic wing-back and would have a lot to learn - but I'd count on him putting in the effort at least.
I made that conclusion only because Marusic is 5 years younger and that this is his natural position. I don't think that a former Barcelona and Chelsea AM and LW will want to play on RWB especially in Italy.

Just to argue some about that.  Marusic was just like Pedro an attacking winger for 90% of his years in Belgium.  He filled in as fullback because of absentees in the rosters because he was good at holding the ball, disciplined and fast.

Salvio has been attacking winger his entire career but played fullback for Argentina.  For thesame reasons.

De Bruyne, Chadli, Carrasco, Thorgan Hazard played wingback roles for Belgium during the WC.
These are strikers, attacking wingers,  central midfielders.

Don't get me wrong i still favour a more oldfashioned type wingback like Durmisi but it seems to be more modern now to insert other types.
:bravo: Don't forget Eto'o's wingback transition by Mou' in Inters Treble season in CL... :twinkle:

Bursaspor interested in Caicedo and Lazio is willing to let him on annual loan, but Turkish club doesn't want to pay full wage for player but rather third quarter of reported 1.2 million that he earns per year.

An indication for another attacker coming in besides Felipe's replacement (Pedro).

Wait so where is everyone getting this info about Pedro, I can't find anything

Inside info  :beer:

Wich means it has actuel truth.  :twinkle:
