Finally a good performance by Hernanes. The guy has been disapointing at best lately which is unexplainable given his great skills. I think the investment will pay off in the end (and I hope, since our average quality is 0 except for him and Kovacic)
I think its just hunger and drive. I've seen teams with less talent and quality then Inter pulling off some good performance because of it. Inter need to show that kind of hunger and drive every single game. Not only that but having a game plan coming into the games against teams with lesser quality that give Inter a hard time.

What's your opinion on Obi playing RWB yesterday?
Thought he did a good job. Brought on lots of energy to the field and was cover a large distance with pace. He was ready to close players down and was showing lots of confidence with the ball. His not a true RWB or a long term RWB but I was pleased with the energy and presence he brought to the game.
He did what he could. Mazzarri fielded two players out of position on that side, Obi and Mbaye. To me Obi is a very average player but he couldn-t do much more vs Napoli. No comment about Mbaye's crossing skills
A draw is pretty decent, then I remembered that this was at home. I hope we bounce back against Cesena.
It was a good way to end a game especially when Inter was behind in injury time. Love the grit the team pulled out to the very end, did not accept defeat and kept fighting till the end, gotta give the team props. One of the most entertaining ways to end a game for Inter that I've seen for a while. I want the team fighting for goals like that every single game!

Although both goals that were conceded by Inter were preventable. Fact that no one decides to stick on Callejon and instead decided to start ball watching was just disappointing. First goal Inter failed to clear the ball out of the box and Callejon was wide open with the team reacting to little to late. The second goal once again Ranocchia failed too stick to his man and he was wide open to make a run on goal. The team needs to get tighter especially during closing minutes when a single goal can change the outcome of the game.
it was an exciting game! couldn't believe it when Gua scored and then Herna popped out with that header, the icing on the cake would've been if Icardi grabbed a hattrick in the first half and the game was played out the same way in the second half... but i'm not gonna fault Icardi as I thought him and Herna were the best on the field that night!

napoli allowed us to attack them in the first half and exposed how Inter stutter when Kova isn't pushing forward for goal, as we kept much of the possession but no end result, and it wasn't until the 65 they decided to push forward... too bad Osvaldo was injured and Palacio not 100%, Dodo did well in trying and his work rate was good but his movement and challenging opponents didn't pay off much and instead held up play too often, if only his attacking was intellectually as good as Palacio as physically he is on pair with JJ... besides that i thought he was our third best player on the field!

Medel, Kova and Herna did well in midfield and i thought they worked well with each other, looked like Palacio was the only one with cramps towards the end and with Medel subbed perhaps giving him some rest, inter getting that draw, we should do well in our next game., if the team doesn't fall back on bad habits and over do with mistakes in their next game..
Hows Icardi Doin?
so so...mostly posting after sex selfies with his wife...
Average...he is the kind of striker who doesn't create, he must be put in the position to finish off but poor assistance has come from our wingers during the past few matches. He only had a chance against Napoli
That why the team needs a real RWB and I want to see more accurate crosses from Dodo, his got potential but he needs to improve on his crosses and taking players on 1v1. Icardi although does a poor job of getting in the right position to be serviced, his still got to learn how to make good runs and constantly keep doing it because if your not scoring you have to keep running.

Would be the worst 11mil every spend. Useless of a player, surely their are better strikers in the market. I would push for Joel Campbell from Arsenal, hell his got so much quality and only 22 years old. Quicker then Icardi and a better finisher, even on a loan deal would be nice. I've loved seeing this guy play for a long time, his made an impact
+1
the one thing i actually rate about Icardi is his finishing, that and the fact there aren't that many players that have the potential to be the type of striker he can be... a Giroud type... Costa would be the most ideal and I rate his aggressive style which I think makes him a level better than Giroud and Dzeko and Campbell lacks that, yes he is different to Icardi, Giroud and Costa but it's the same reason i think Wenger went out and bought Welbeck, a player similar to him and perhaps 20 was a steal but if you weight it up with the return Soldado can give you... then i think 11 is another steal for a player like Soldado... the only downside would be that Icardi would find it hard for a spot in the team, enough for him to sit on the bench more than he'd like and could inhibit his growth... but considering we were once targeting Biabiany and Lavezzi still seems to be of interest to Inter, then perhaps he is type of player Maz is looking for and could fit in with his tactics out of a choice between Soldado and Campbell... but i think if Maz can get hold of a good RWB, a RCB and a player that can close the gape between midfield and Icardi then we could see a different Inter side, i'm not sure if Soldado or Campbell could be the answer, then again, Osvaldo and Palacio haven't yet been the answer and they're no joke either... it would have to be a special player or playerS...
Soldado adds nothing to this squad, trust me. I've seen the guy play and its just nothing impressive that would make you go out and buy him. I'd rather see Icardi start every week rather then see Soldado. His not even worth 11mil in my book and I don't see him as an answer to our problems. 29 year old going to 30 I just don't see it.

If Inter manages to get a CB/RWB or even either one in Janaury the gap can be closed. I want to see a fix in the defense first, because Inter needs another CB and a good RWB to replace Johnathan. A Matteo Darmian type of player would be nice, hell I wish Inter had Matteo Darmian, he would fit right in and he prefers playing in the RWB position. Fabian Schar would be the man to do get, I don't know if his free during the winter or next summer window but either way he would be a great young CB signing.

Whomever is going to replace Palacio is going to come in during the summer but a loan move for a possible attacking threat like Campbell with speed and can provide as well for me wouldn't be a bad move especially if the team switches to 4-4-3/3-4-3 formation he would be a great outside forward. I think getting Biabiany from a struggling Parma would be more difficult then getting Campbell but I won't understand if this team signs Soldado for 11mil when Inter has Osvaldo and can sign him for as little as 7.5mil in the summer.
the most ideal would've been Balo and Destro coming back to the team but i doubt thohir would've invested 40 mil for that to be happen, or even Gabbi and Berardi as alternatives... well with a strong defence, Icardi, Osvaldo and surprisingly Kova scoring goals... you'd hope the wingbacks and Palacio would ship in more and we could end up with a decent amount of points during the season... I can see how Campbell would be an ideal player with his pace but he is no Adriano, lacks strength for my liking and he isn't exactly known for his goalscoring record... i even thought Enner Valencia looked more exciting in the WC... but if they can land him on loan, he could be a viable solution out of all the players linked to Inter in january transfer market under the budget Ausi is using... well let's see what happens in the napoli game, perhaps we'll be able to see the team in a new light then us fans don't have to worry about the market or long for new players as we already have all these new players to get to know and be excited about...
Balo&Destro would be so nice although looking at Balotelli now I've really noticed he doesn't get into the 18 yard box as much as a deadly striker would, he can assist and play one touch passes to set players up but his not a hunger goalscorer.

I still think the players the team landed haven't shown up yet and time is needed. Dodo on the other hand is just getting better and better. My biggest problem now would have to be to get RWB and CB and hope Palacio can be fit soon so he can contribute some goals. Fixing the defensive first would be top, top priority, the space between MF and defensive has to be closed. D'Ambro is a questions mark and as much as leadership Vidic brings his has really struggled with pace. Bringing in someone like Fabian Schar who's young, quick and strong with great composure and plays well beyond his years would be the best option to bring to Inter. I've seen a few of his UCL games and he just loves to make those long passes from the back almost like Bonucci. Very good asset to have.
well that's why we'd have Icardi plus Destro available to the team, I wouldn't mind having him as a supplier, the kid must have taken some huge knocks to his confidence whilst at Milan, too much responsibility for a kid of his age and the type of press and attention he recieved, also taking into account his personality... if he could be allowed freedom to roam just behind the strikers he could flourish with the main responsibiliity of scoring goals down to Icardi and Destro and if it comes down to it, you could take Balo off and play instead Destro with Icardi and have one of the mdifield players push up higher to support them...

I was hoping for a player similar to Juan, just like Richard, a right-footed player that has pace and strength and is familiar with the FB position, otherwise it'll be a waste to have Schär or a great CB that struggles with his position as with Ranoch when he plays as a RCB in the three man defence... but Richard hasn't had a great start to his serie adventure and perhaps we dodged a bullet there with his injury problems... with Samuel, Cordoba and Matrix gone, Vidic must be great to have around and the only downside being his wage demands and the type of return Inter gets...

too bad we lost out on Blind, he is turning out some fine games for Man U so far in the season, also if Rafael wasn't getting any playing time then perhaps he could've been an interesting player to have on the field along with Dodo... but we have D'Ambro who could be a great back-up that can play on both sides, with Nago and Jonathan still at the club... the club really shouldn't be desperate for a new RWB and you'd hope that they don't get just about anyone or make hasty decisions and instead invest wisely... i mean with Dodo/Juan-D'Ambro-X/X, the new players should compliment each other at least as good as Dodo and Juan does with D'Ambro as back-up, plus keeping in mind a chance of return for Biraghi...
I guess you make a good point. I want to see an upgrade of Juan Jesus, someone bigger, stronger and fast with better anticipation. Juan hasn't played as well as I hoped and Richards would have been in a nice signing but his been out of form for a long time and injury prone. My top target for me if Inter would invest in a CB would be Dede from Brazil. I don't think Inter would spend much on a CB alone but I've seen the dude play and his athleticism and height is just insane. At 26 his going into his prime years and if Inter would to have a strong back-line his the man for the future, a leader on the field. I can see him being the back-bone of the team for years to come and would be my ideal CB target. Although realistically bringing in a CB cover would be nice in the winter with quality, just depends on what's out their in the market.

On the RWB I wouldn't mind someone like Rafael or Danilo type of player who is going to explode forward and make good cross and have enough in the engine to track back. On the other hand wouldn't mind seeing someone from Inter youth set-up like Biraghi or Mbaye get a crack at that position and see how things are by the summer.
a brazilian talent and a porto player? inter would count themselves lucky if they managed to still have their shirts on when they leave those meetings lol! and it doesn't help that there are eastern european and portugues teams willing to take a gamble on them with those fairly high prices... talking about defence, looking really forward to the napoli game, been much talk about it... i hope the team doesn't display a lackluster side of them, even if they lose that they put up a good fight and work on their defensive side... didn't Maz used to say that was the most important thing before anything else?...
Hopefully a better performance. Problem is the gaps between DF-MF-FW and the team needs to be more tighter defensively and the MF needs to get the ball up the field in order to play against Napoli and take the game to them and finally the striker/s needs to finish thier chances because Napoli might not hand us a lot of chances to work with. This game is big for the players and Mazz. I wanna see a 3-4-3 formation with the Icardi up top and Osvaldo and Kovacic right on his of his sides. The MF would consistent of both FB Dodo/D'Ambro with Hernanes or Guarin next to Medel. Medel is probably going to be playing a big role in supporting the CB and I don't know if M'Vila can pull of what Medel can do. Then with Juan/Vidic/Rano as CBs.

If the team sticks together on counter attacks and can break well on counters then Inter could go for a win but guys like Hernanes/Kova/Medel have to step up big time. The battle in the MF is going to be tough.
that would be my ideal playing style for inter! but the problem is Medel and Ranoch... non of them can cover the RCB position and it's needless to have both of them on the field with Vidic there, either you but Medel where Vidic is and have M'Vila take Medels spot in midfield and bench Herna and instead play with two power houses in the form of Guarin and M'Vila... this would allow Kova-Osvaldo to put pressure on Napolis half and even push their midfield further back or their backline to play a bit higher but with just Medel as the strong man in midfield, it's asking too much, specially when Napoli have 3 quick strikers and it'll give their midfield plenty of time to set them up when you only have Medel pressing them also it's too tiring for Kova, Herna and Medel to put in a consistent performance...

if there was greater defensive covering from the RCB and RWB, then perhaps... it could work with a 3-4-3...

but as this moment the most ideal way to close the gap between DF-MF-FW, would be using Herna and Kova... think about it, by dividing responsibility and putting DF-HERNA-MF-KOVA-FW, but then you'd have to give up on the 3-4-3 because of obviously the lack of midfield support to the team and that we don't have 3 great attackers that could afford us to play with Herna-Medel in midfield, Mou at Chelsea plays with Fabregas and Matic but he has 3 quality attacking players that can also help out in midfield and put pressure on opposing team so that even Fabregas has time to get up and score goals or set up ones and 1 pure striker that can deliver goals even if those 3 that support him are busy helping out defensively... and for good measure he even sometimes puts Ivanovic as RB!, having his team technically playing at times the 3-4-3 formation!

maybe a christmas tree formation suits this team the best? with a 4-1-2-1-2 formation, Medel can play behind Kova-Herna in midfield or Herna behind M'Vila-Guarin with Kova in AM... or even M'Vila behind Kova-Guarin? and a trio of Osvaldo-Palacio-Icardi upfront? sadly I can understand why Maz is desperate for a RWB and RCB or even a striker that can close the gap between the MF-FW as he could easily work with the defensive side of the team with the players currently at his disposal...

also i think D'Ambro is out 6 weeks with an injury and Osvaldo is out 3 weeks, maybe we'll see Mbaye on the field with a bit more maturity this time as he could help the team a bit more defensively but it's more likely Nago and Palacio will take on the field, with question marks on whether Kova has recovered or if Maz will field Guarin alongside Herna-Medel in midfield...

we're always bound to lose out in midfield battles if we play with Herna-Kova in midfield and Icardi upfront without a solid DM and an exceptionally good SS in 3-5-2 formation... are Medel & M'Vila and Osvaldo & Palacio the answer? i'd say they're good players but no Vidal & Pogba or De Rossi & Strootman and Tevez & Gervinho...
Didn't know D'Ambro and Osvaldo were out. Damn that sucks. I guess its to pre-mature to play a 3-4-3 formation when Inter don't yet have that quality and depth in the squad to pull it off but it is one formation I'd like to see in the future if Mazz is still around since he so fondly loves playing back 3. Its difficult to try come up with a line-up that might give you an edge but its not happening with Inter when their are flaws and players that aren't as good.

Although with the winter window the defense needs to strengthen up if anything. I do want to see RWB/RCB to come in, D'Ambro hasn't progressed as well as Dodo has and I don't know if his going to get any better and Jonathan needs to head out the door. I'd rather see Inter go out facing big teams and putting on a fight to the finish rather then losing in a poor fashion based on certain positions. I still believe the defensive is the weakest position for Inter.
well with 3-4-3 you don't have to have a solid defence, besides i think Ranoch, Vidic and JJ are pretty solid and they should be able to do their bit, for now, if they can get help which D'Ambro is pretty good at... later in the summer you could go after a quality RCB and if you do get one in january, then who will sit on the bench out of Vidic and Ranoch? I rather the club went after a AM and RWB... i mean my favorite formation 4-2-3-1 could easily be adapted by Inter in a 3-4-3 formation... for instance

Icardi

AM/SS - AM - AM/SS

Kova/Herna - M'Vila/Guarin

Juan - Vidic - Ranoch - D'Ambro

so instead of a MC-DM-MC as in a 3-5-2 you'd play with MC-AM-MC in a 3-4-3 and that's why I'm not a big fan of Medel, if Inter were to get 1 AM then you could easily push the AM/SS back to midfield and allow Dodo to play that role as a wingback and push D'Ambro further up... and have Herna or Kova play alongside M'Vila or another DM... depending on the opposition you could play with two DM's or two MC's in midfield and have Osvaldo or Palacio play alongside the AM or one of Kova or Herna and in the summer invest in a replacement for Palacio and a RCB if Jonathan, Campagnaro are released and Nago is sold... and with a bit of luck if Kuz, Obi, Khrin are sold then another talented MC, with Crisetig, Biraghi, Longo and Laxalt or Benassi given a chance?
I like the sound of that but wish Inter would pull the plug on Alvarez loan deal and bring him back would save a lot of money on an AM and his only made a single appearance since his loan deal. I just think he would be better of here playing as that AM/SS role. Sucks that he decided his best option in his career was to go to Sunderland.

On the other hand hopefully Campagnaro/Andreolli can cover for both CB if injuries take place but for me I want to see a confident AM/SS coming into the team in January not another striker like I've been hearing. Someone with confidence, flash, goals and assists. Lets see what happens.
I want Strama back. With a garbage team much worse than what we have now, he made a record with that winning streak and also beat undefeated Juve at home. Then injury added to the whole problem. That and Branca selling all the good players we had and signing players like Rocchi and some other guy who was retired but failed his medical exam.

I think with this new management and a better squad, strama can excel with Inter.
+1
Lets wait and see until the summer. At this point in time their no reason to get rid of Mazz and we have to wait and see how all the new signings do, who stays and who goes. Then comes the bigger question of how much Thohir is willing to invest. I don't want to see massive changes in players, just quality replaced in WBs/CBs/ST. We have some quality attacking youngsters coming through the ranks like Bonazzoli and Longo. Hell I don't mind seeing Taider come back, I thought he deserves a shot.

I didn't want to see Strama go either, he didn't get a fair shot will all the injuries and aging squad he had. Now with Udinese in their last 6 games his only lost to Juve.
well so far they've managed to land Dodo, M'Vila and kept Icardi, Kova and Handa plus the addition of Hernanes from january, so far so good, perhaps still question marks over D'Ambro... and Vidic, Medel with Osvaldo, would be unfair to judge too soon... i guess the team is a work in progress but if the results don't come in it'll give the impression of that it's too much of a gap between Inter and other giants of Serie A, that the gap can't be closed or that any work hasn't been done...

and if we're rooting for coaches, i'd go for Miha... been impressed with how he has worked with youngster like romag and gabbi, also the type of mentality he has given to the team... but i'd hate for Maz to crash and burn so early in the season...
I don't want to see Mazz crash early either, its never really smart to sack a manager early in the season after he acquired new players of his choosing, it would just mess things up, summer would be the right time to assess things.

Dodo out of any of the signings has stepped up and has been looking impressive. Even earned a call up to Brazil.

I don't know what a person/coach should do to be sacked.

After six matches we are fifth, we got scored 7 times against Cagliari and Fiorentina and after 1,5 years our team,one of the most renowned worldwide, cannot make three passages in a row. Almost all new signings seem to have 0 quality and have been disappointing at best so far (except Osvaldo).

I guess your employers would sack you if you didn't perform for 1,5 years...what should I think about a professional who is paid millions and can't even put up a decent match?
+6
was surprised to read italian newspapers talking about Maz being sacked, just days after Thohir confirming him... somehow i can understand with the club willing to give him a pass for last year, only giving him a 1 year extension, he has had an oversight over the changes, is one of the highest earners at the club... however, it's always easy to pass the bucket to the coach... we've seen it with Gasp, Ranieri, Benitez and Strama and it hasn't helped changing coaches... was hoping it was a administrative problem and it would've resolved itself with changes made by Thohir but... last year it was called a 'transitional' this year... well, what do you call it? that's why the jury on Maz is still out for me, I could understand if we had better players at the club however after Maz took over he said this team was capable of more than a finish at 9th and he managed to get the team to 5th albeit we dropped the ball and could've done better, this year he has not had the desired start to the season but with 2 wins in EL and enough time to get back in the race for 3rd spot, untill the january window... I'd wait a bit more...

the only thing that has confused me about Maz is that his staff are highly rated and his Napoli team were one of the fittest teams in Serie A yet this season the Inter players look exhausted even with a full pre-season behind them, although Maz has complained about the commitments getting in the way and some players arriving late and with injuries...

also, Maz who is berated for working with youngsters has done a good job with playing consistently Dodo, Icardi, now that he is finally injury free, playing great at times, Kova finding the mark and Juan looking more polished... they do still have a long way to go but Maz hasn't shied away from giving them playing time... this year we have Vidic, Herna, Osvaldo, M'Vila and Medel but it isn't enough and we're still missing valid alternatives for Icardi/Osvaldo, Dodo/D'Ambro, Herna/Kova... instead of Jonathan/Nago/Campo, Kuz/Obi and Palacio...
Personally I find it hard to throw it on Mazz. Its not like he got top quality major stars who joined Inter last summer to work with. Its even harder when some of your best players are under-performing and you don't have quality replacements on the bench to change things up. The Napoli squad he had was a 2-3 levels above what his working with now, no comparison whatsoever. Their literally is no point in sacking Mazz, what difference is another manager going to make? because your only as good as what your working with.

Thohir has talked for a while its time he gets more serious about taking Inter to the next level in terms of quality if he wants to please the fans.
fans are quick to turn in serie a, we've seen it with adl, berlusconi, lotito and even Moratti wasn't excluded as he came under some harsh criticism before he decided to sell the club...

he could throw Maz under the bus and keep saying that he is willing to confirm him untill things go so bad that he brings in a new coach or a short-term replacement untill we're at it again in the summer with speculations... or do it sneakly, like Galli is doing in Milan, making purchases and signing Coaches that don't make sense and are only there to make headlines...

therefore, i appreciate that inter has been cautious, which is good but it's also true that he'll have to continue making brave decisions as he did with letting go of the senators and changing directors... perhaps, investing in Ausi isn't so bad, as so far he has managed to land 3-4 great signings out of 5, which isn't so bad considering what he had to work with... and it's one thing making good management decisions that'll benefit the club in the long run but us inter fans have been spoiled and aren't used to this type of long-term measurements... at least, if he is not going to make big signings, then it's time that he makes plans for the changing of fringe players as he did with the senators... that way he could buy himself sometime and make handsome profits when he sells his finished products... much like the arsenal and dortmunt model he likes but the teams needs to be able to compete for a CL spot inorder to sell the kind of inter he wants the inter fans to buy...
He needs to invest in Ausi, other players won't want to sign for a team not competing in CL, fans won't want to buy this Inter unless its playing good football and competing for the title/CL spot. I just don't see anything happening unless he invests in quality players. I like his cautiousness and its smart because he doesn't want to throw money away but Ausi has made some nice purchases with not a lot resources and I'm surprised in some of the moves he pulled off. To be honest I want to see what Ausi can do with just more resources. I bet some sweet deals can take place.
he'll probably wait and see what kind of return he is getting from inters investments during the summer...

read somewhere that he was glad with the purchase of herna and credited him for inter finishing in a EL spot in serie a... also he did fork out when called upon... and ausi just signed a new contract until 2017... so... if things continue to go bad, it'll be hard for Maz, Fas and Ausi to convince thohir... with claims about Maz being under pressure already in the Napoli game, I won't hold my breath until Feb, i'll instead wait until the derby d'madonna and see where we are in the table and take account of the games we've played and the performance of the players before i hope for any kind of investments from thohir...
Well Medel is going to stay considering he bought him, Vidic is a good player but hopefully another quality CB that can rotate can come in and have Vidic and him switch off. His getting older Vidic. Osvaldo is not a bad option considering his only 7mil and if his wages can be negotiate I don't mind buying him but I want to see more from him and M'Vila. M'Vila especially, since his move to Russia after he left Rennes and was banned from the French national team he ability dropped and he needs to regain that and be the top quality player that many teams where chasing a few years back.

I want to see lots of positive from the players and better performance in the near future, crossing my fingers, hopefully a little support from lady luck as well might go long way!
I agreed with what VDA said, but I strongly believe that even the best coach in the world can't do anything with these mediocre players. We are happy that we got Vidic, whose expiration date passed 2 years ago. We are happy that got Medel, who is no better than Gargano and we signed Osvaldo who was left over of Southampton and Juventus.
to be fair, there haven't been that many games but at his best, Medel looked like a good player, obviously I was hoping for a player like Song or Mikel and even now after reading that Khedira will be free in the summer, you can't help but glance at those type of players without taking anything away from Medel, just hope he proves us wrong, also another player we've been linked with, Schär, will be on a free! could perhaps be the cheap solution to the missing CB in our backline... anyways Vidic is great to have around, old yes, but I think he is still reliable, not to mention the type of impact he has had in the dressing room with talk of him being captain but could perhaps be used more efficiently... as for Osvaldo, he is an italian national player, regardless if he is a starter or not, he'd be great to have available to the squad and if he can get back to his usual self, he could be an added bonus in Inters attack, at Juve they had Llorente and Tevez, along with a host of other players similar to Osvaldo and he did cost at that time a bit more and could've demanded a higher salary than he is now and we've read about his history with South... along with Pusca, Bonz and Longo (or Borini) we'd only need to find a replacement for Palacio and we'd be set up front...
I am hoping that DC united can with the MLS this year, so finally we will see some attention from Tohir to Inter...many of you guys said he did a lot by paying off the debts we have had for years, but for me as an Inter fan its not enough. There are so many teams out there who got tones of loans and debts (such as Real Madrid, Barca, MU, Juve and ect.) and they still manage to buy world class players.
Mazz said "We will turn around things"...my question is how ???
How are you going to change things when you use the same old exposed tactics with bunch of useless players..At least half of our players must be replaced if we want to get something in the future, otherwise we are screwed...
+1
there is still time to change things around... it's always hard to start off in a good pace but also very hard to maintain it, it'll have to be a complete break down of communication between the players and the coach as it was with Gasp but all the senators have gone and the management have been speaking well about Maz so i'm not entirely sure they'll be cutting him lose anytime soon... also just before the game we were at 5th spot now we're at 10th so the table can lie much about how good the team is and had we won our last 2 games we would've been in third spot and a lot of people would've rated Maz and Inter highly...
Not half of our players, I think some are just not stepping up and some are still trying to get used to the league and Mazz's tactical system. Until the season ends, then we can judge.
The way you guys put things together is like we are playing pre-seasons and whatever happens is fine, forgetting about how important every single missed points are.Just try to look at the reality how it is...!!
+2
You have to patient. You can't possibly expect results to happen right away. Some big leaders left this team last season in Samuel, Cambiasso and Zanetti and now Inter's goalscoring talisman from last season isn't 100% and has been absent so far in the season. What do you expect? The team to suddenly start wining more games? Fact is Medel, M'Vila and Osvaldo are still new to the team and will need more time to adjust. Kova and Icardi aren't consistent performers and the teams defense isn't rock solid even with the addition of Vidic. The whole team is struggling and still needs time, that's the reality here.

On the other hand you can't possibly get rid of half of the players, who are you going to replace them with? The only additions I want to see in January is possibly a quality CB/WB or one of each to replace Campo/Johnthan/Nagatomo because my issue with this is I don't think starting Vidic every week is going to work especially with a team that has speed, his found trouble in them and Rano/Juan aren't the best dealing with them either. I want to see a quality CB that can rotate with Vidic, who younger, quicker and stronger with good potential. Then Naga/Johnathan really need a good replacement because both aren't good enough and are just a liability at this point and by that time Palacio will be 100% and ready to lead the team in attack. Hopefully then the team will be playing better but for now you just have to be patient.
I agree with Blackstyle. I see it hard to turn things around especially because we do not have the players to do that. Just look at our bench: we don't have a single quality player
+6
Mustafi doesn't sound so bad right now, too bad we missed out on him and also Brozovic, he'd be useful right now and could rotate with Herna/Kova and wouldn't mind being used in rotation... best business would be landing Kono and Rabiot on free or cheap in January but i can't see that happening when there are more prestigious teams after them and their demand for first team spot could be difficult to accommodate with Herna/Kova and Medel/M'Vila in midfield and Inter not playing with widemen but i can see Kono replicating what Totti is doing for Roma right now and why they'll be interested in him if instead of going wide he'd learn to play as a false nr 9, with his pace, ball control and having Iturbe/Florenzi and Gervinho on each side... Rabiot could be a better alternative then Kuz/Obi and a better bet for the future but so too can Baselli and L. Silva... just hope inter use that last non-eu spot for Firmino if they can't land Kono...
We still have the January window coming so hopefully Inter can land some good talented players to rotate. Here is the problem because we all want quality players but how do you attract them? You can't just sign one top quality player he has to see that his future is in good hands, his probably wants to see more quality players come in or else he ain't signing for Inter. Its going to come down to Thohir and how much is willing to give the team for transfers and let Ausi do some magic because this team doesn't have enough quality to sell for big money or anything.

Firmino would be a dream landing, that kid is just so talented, his goalscoring tally and assists are just crazy and what's even crazier is his yet to receive a call up from Brazil. Robiot would be another quality signing. I've seen him play and I know why Roma want to seal the deal for another top young talent. His passing, through balls, dribbling, Ariel duels, tackling, interceptions are just excellent for a 19 year old.

I know a lot of you guys don't think this teams form will change but lets just hope things can work out and maybe Thohir will open his wallet and help in the transfers.
