Here we can discuss about Potezna. He is our future starring left back. Unless Moratti and co screw that up. :rolleyes:

Last week for chievo vs sampdoria.

He got a rating of 6,5 vs sampdoria. Which is the highest any chievo player got.

Thanx Stefan, some fans are forgetting about him. We don't need Dede, Grosso or Parisi when we have him. I didn't rate him highly until I started watching him and seeing how great he is. Please, don't sell him now, learn from your mistakes for once.

It'd be great if you keep posting his stats and ratings Stefan, I want to see how he is progressing.

I have a feeling that his name is spelled wrongly in the thread title. I think it's supposed to be Alessandro Potenza, not Allesandro. :)

Anyway, I have not have the chance to watch him play. But everyone seems very wary of him, and expects a lot from him, which must mean he is quite good. If he can fill the left back role, then I don't think we should buy any left back this summer. Favalli can start there, and Potenza can be the back-up, should anything happen.

Potenza can be the back-up, should anything happen man thank god your not in charge of inter! lol

bringing him to inter to be a backup is terrible. why bring him in and waste him when we can leave him at other places playing reguraly. Favalli should be his back up not the other way around. but im talkin in abotu 2 seasons.

My mistake. :P

What I meant was Favalli can star and Potenza can be the -back-up for next season. That way, Potenza can have hte experience, and improve. Until maybe 2-3 seasons later, when we'll kick Favalli's ass away, and Potenza will be our new left back.

But maybe leaving him on loan to another club, may be a better option. But I still prefer him coming back and train with us and getting to know all the players for a while.

A rating of 6.5 against a team like Sampdoria is good, but the thing is in which position did our potenza play ?? LB or CB ?? I still think that loaning to Chievo was a bad move as they already had Lanna for the LB spot. Anyway, lets hope that he dumps Lanna and gets to play in LB regularly and also does very well. Only then, will we bring him back. Having an Italian youngster in the squad would be good. :)

Well Potenza it is then. Coco could very well be sold while Favalli could also be booted. If he does then perhaps bringing Potenza back and signing Dede would be the best answer to our LB problems.

I rather keep favalli till potenza is ready to be number 1 in 1/2 seasons time. No need to sign a new left back unless he is in his early 30's. I want potenza for the future therefore I am against signing any left back unless he is old.

I don't think anybody will waste their money on Coco. We need to get rid of Materazzi as well...We should get some young Italian defender instead of him.

So you believe foreigners don't care for the club?? I believe jz cares more for the club than any of the italian players currently at the club so that is a very biased opinion.

Well the thing is that we will never have the best side, so since we will always be average, it better be with Italian players.

For your information, after the Euro derby loss, the only players that cried were Cordoba (colombian), Emre (turkish) and JZ (argentinian. ) The so-called italian players didn't shed a tear.

Also, in the last debies, the only players that were enthusiastic and showed hatred to Milan were Cambiass, Kily (Both Argentinians) and Stankovic (From Montenegro.) The italians are just hugging, kissing or not caring about Milan players.

In the past, I wanted us to have italian players. But now, I don't care. Italian players don't show more heart than foreigners and they never speak out against the unfairness. Totti is starting to reverse that trend, but foreigners are braver than italians when it comes to the truth.

But I thought that there is a regulation now that we have to have a certain number of local players who are brought up at the club for at least 2-3 years? Or does that rule onli apply to EPL teams?

I'm proud of Potenza :proud: ,he made an excellent performance against Juve , only a shame he didn't beat the shit out of Olivera :fero: but at least you can't keep saying Inter youngsters are sissies who congratulate rivals after losing , Forza Potenza !

13 Mar 05, 20:57
I heard Potenza was shit in the Juve match . Even got himself sent off for a stupid foul.

Jimmy
13 Mar 05, 21:01
You heard wrong. Potenza played as a right back against Juve and completely shut down that flank. His defensive skills are nothing but impressive to watch. Heīs of course no offensive fullback, since heīs naturally a central defender.

What he got sent off is beyond me. He must have done something which the replays didnīt pick up, because if he got a straight red card based on what the replay showed, itīs ridicolous.

Superb performance from Potenza tonight.

Who told you that ? Moggi ? :D
Potenza was great ,he made Del Piero and Zambrotta look like clowns.

Jimmy from what I've seen in the replay Olivera was kind of teasing him after he scored and Potenza pushed him away and Olivera tried to choke him , I hope Olivera will get a longer suspension , but I also hoped Chievo's perfectly ok goal would count , hope is useless against I Gobbi.

13 Mar 05, 21:49
Ohh okay I see.

Or I mean I heard right, but the pesron was wrong. It seemed from Eurosport to me that he was having a good game, until the red card.

Hammoudi
13 Mar 05, 22:23
That was unfair, they were going for a ball, then Olivieira tried to man handle him. Potenza pushed him away, then Oliveira started choking him. He didn't choke Oliveira back, he just pushed his hands away, the commentators said he didn't derserve the red card.

But his tempers afterwards worry me. He made Olivieira run out of the stadium and the he started kicking the bench with force. He better learn how to control himself, you can get a lengthy suspension for antics like that.

potenza is a great player,its good that inter are giving him experience,he can play cd,rb or lb,he can be our future lb,and he had every right to get frustrated,olivera choked him 2 times and he also got a red card and he didnt do one thing.

Remember hamed he is only 21. I am sure he will learn to controll his temper. Gazetta give him a 5 but I think that is cause he got sent off. Since he was magnificent.

Even thought he got sent off I loved the way he wanted to smash oliviera for getting him sent off.

He must just learn to controll it a bit.

14 Mar 05, 09:53
forget that, what do u want him to be a choir boy? to me i was happy. First, u can tell he hates JUVE :D

2nd, it reminds me a bit of Stankovic, the fire in the belly. We need more players like that, and just for the record.

if that was me, i would of gone absolutly nuts!! we can be happy he didnt attack the umpire, because that FKD up looking De santis was so bloody stupid that game, so i think Potenza did well by not unleashing on him lol cause man i wanted to.

Ari
14 Mar 05, 15:13
Right Helal. Bring him to us... :star: :fero: :star: But how the red card situation actually went? I read somewhere that Sandro would have kicked Olivera first.. :confused:

Hammoudi
14 Mar 05, 15:18

Yeah, why not! I actually like this idea, I will purchase that CD. :D

Jokes aside, if you get sent off, it's not the end of the story. If you chase a player outside the stadium, you risk being further suspended. Also, he could've broken his foot kicking the bench like that.

But he is still young, and it's good that he showed heart. I just hope our management won't screw this time around.

Pravesh
15 Mar 05, 17:11
Potenza got a red card as he reacted to Olivera's foul. Good job Potenza. :D

Olivera started it and Potenza gave him a good reply. :stuckup: :P

By the way, after Inter-Lazio, I had posted saying - "How did the referee see the disallowed goal ?? It wouldn't have been the case if Juve had scored."

And guess what, it happened - the same day. Chievo goal against Juventus wasn't given. It wasn't an easy decision, but still ... :rolleyes:

The clue that came to me

Alessandro Potenza - the angel who will save our central defence problems in the future.

He is a fantastic player. I could see that just from the first game I watched with him (Chievo - Juventus). And that says alot. Only player I can remember who sold me right away was Frey(his talent, not perfomances) Nesta, old Ronaldo, J. Zanetti and Ronaldinho. So basically if you believe in such superstition he will join the absolute creme of football soon.

He is one of the best readers of the game I ever saw. In this aspect he might even become better than Nesta. He is pretty fast and tackles very well. So defencevely he is a true diamond talent. Offencevely I didn't get to see him for obvious reasons. He is playing in Chievo for God's sakes!

I look forward to see that part of his game...

I already consider him on the level of Andrade and he has become one of my favourite players. God knows what future this kid might have. Only the sky is the limit for him if he sets his sight there. I'm already nervous he will get some sort of injury to ruin it all. In maybe 3-4-5 years he will have fully matured.

I like his character because he gave Olivera what he deserved. He could've taken it further but was extremely proffesional for a lad on his age to keep calm. It remains clear if he wanted to Olivera would lie in a hospital bed with Moggi waiting in the cafeteria to anxiously try and drop some doping his medicine when the doctors are away.

I want him back from loan this summer and make him play next to Cordoba right away. No bullshit and bollocks. Direct promotion to second choice in central defence. You may say this is too early and that he needs to mature. Could be true, but my intuition tells me he will be ready after this season to play for a team like Inter.

No need to go out and buy Luisao or Krøldrup in the summer. I would only accept absolute top class star central defender. And that limits my choices to about 10 players. If we can get such a player too, fine. That would be acceptable. Any less class players will only fill up unnecesary space in Burdisso and Potenza's development.

Another thing about this player: How on the blue earth is it possible to be so versatile??? LB, CB, RB and even defensive midfielder. The fact that he can fullfill the first 4 of these roles to perfection is a warrant of class itself. He is a bright hope for Inter and football itself who without bad luck will turn into a star with time. We can be proud to say that we created this player from our factory.

Moratti, take him in the summer and let him stay here. Mancini, make him play next to Cordoba!

That's pretty much all my comments on this guy that I can remember right now. :)

Mikkel
25 Mar 05, 22:56
Gismo it would be a bad idear to get him back from loan if he dosen't get a starting position on the team.

I also wont him back this summer, but as our first choise LB, where he really have his strenght, But as you also mentioned he can also play all the other position in defence which is very good, since we always have had some probs in that department.

Yah thats an enough reason for me to like him :D When he was at parma, i saw just couple of his matches and i think he did well as a youngster. Hopefully he'll get better and more experienced soon. ;) I also liked bovo who plays for lecce, I dont know if wwe still own him. I think we do :confused:

snake
26 Mar 05, 04:08
i dont know Gismo, that good?

where would we want to play him. the centre of defence? leftback, right back? or defensive mid? so many options. but give him at least 2 years out playing more.

we can see how much he will impress.

26 Mar 05, 04:47
we dont wanna have the same problem we did when we handed cirillo and ferarri a massive job which caused a lot of pressure to them. He should again be loaned out and prove himself in a seria a team next season ...

I have no doubt in my mind over this player, Helal. ;)

Where should we play him? Well, Cordoba and J. Zanetti are sure players. We're so greatly covered in central midfield too. He can play either CB or LB depending on what we do on the transfer market in the summer.

28 Jun 05, 08:15
So, what's with Potenza? there has been no talks of him, but there certainly has to be something going on. Has Chievo loaned him out again or what?

Isn't he the one that begged not to return to Inter or is it just my imagination? :rolleyes:

Tommi
28 Jun 05, 08:28
Good point Patrick.

When i saw that co-owned list at Inter.it, i was coming here to ask about Potenza. I think heīs deal with Chievo was only loan deal and thatīs why he wasnīt included in that list.

Allthought, i remember reading that Chievo was trying to sell him to Spain a month or two ago. My guess is that we dont even own him anymore. We probably gave him to Chievo...just like we did with Semioli.

Hmmm, if matrix and gamara leaving and burdisso is still on loan, potenza has a huge chance to play.....

even if we sign another two defenders for next season

Ideally our defense shud look like this next season :

Cordoba
Samuel
Miha
Matrix / Burdisso
Potenza

if Burdisso dont go 2 Boca we sell Matrix & get Potenza back ;)

15 Jul 05, 06:22
u forget our players have d uncanny ability of being injured more than d rest

and Miha is 37, i dont think he will play too many matches this year ... i rather have Potenza than Materazzi

Materazzi is not going to improve unless he gets 2 play for Cuper ...

With Potenza there is d hope ...

hello number 7...

yes I remember there was a certain Potenza playing at LEFT-BACK for Parma in the first half of last season, though in the 2nd half he wasn't there. I don't know why.

Our Potenza was definitely at Chievo for some time last season though. I don't know how long exactly.

enjoy having squad number 7. :)
