Fucking hell, stop whining before we even got to sign any big names yet.
If we won't, then u have rights to and ofcourse I will, but for fucks sake It's still May and ppl are alrady bitching..

If rumors are true, we invested 6m in him which is as much as freaking unproven Poli costed us.
Who cares about his age if he can perform well for maybe a few seasons to come? 34 year old Drogba won chelsea the UCL and Palacio is 4 years younger. Not comparing, but have some fucking common sense and judge him after he plays and not at the day he signed for us.

And yes we do need him since Pazzo, Forlan and Zarate are going, we'd have no forwards left but Milito and some youngsters if we didn't sign him.

& once again, we're still going after Lavezzi, Destro, and Isla, is that money coming out of your pocket that some of you crying that much? :palm:
Our management being stupid is nothing new, so don't expect for anything else for that 6-10m invested on him, so I rather see another good PROVEN Serie A striker, rather than buy some unknown guy from Brazil with that money and loan him the next season :palm:

Solfice
25 May 12, 19:19
Let's see what he can do for Inter before we start complaining. He scored 19 goals during 32 games in Genoa who got almost relegated. :notbad: Pazzini, Forland and Zarate scored 9 goals together. Milito is 33 but still scored 24. Let's just wait and see. Also glad that he cut off his stupid rat tail.

Yeah right. Preziosi has that after every recent transfer we have made with him. And more than that when we signed Gasperini he praised how good coach we have signed. He only just had fired him.

So dont believe anything Preziosi says. He just a businessman who knows and cares very little about football.

Well his contract is not that bad actually..

Fingers crossed that he will repeat his season at Genoa..

FORZA PALACIO!

Il Maestro
25 May 12, 21:20
He's a man that has scored 19 goals for an almost relegated teams and he was coached by four different coaches in ONE year. Only quality players does that. Hugely underestimated.

He also fits perfectly in Stramaccioni's team. He can play as a centre forward and behind Milito, besides Sneijder. A quality player who can handle all our attacking positions.

I also mean that this proves that we're thinking about spending a significant amount of money. This signing isn't like any other signing we have done since after summer '09. That proves we have a different mentality going into this mercato.

And please judge him by what he does on the field. Not by his haircut or what team he played for previously or his fucking age.

I'll never stop amusing myself with some of the comments over here.

Well i could understand that people get worried if a certain player has always scored 15+ goals and suddenly in the last season before we sign him he scores under 10 , but i can't understand at all why people get concerned why a player who usualy scores under 10 suddenly scores 19.

The problem people have, including myself, is that we claimed we were going to rebuild this team and go young, but the first signing we make is a 30 year old player. Not exactly the young prospects we all were looking for :)

Hmm.. yes, that's true.. but if we sign Destro, and put Longo, Bessa in the first team, and than use Coutinho, Alvarez, Guarin, Obi(or Poli), Jonathan, Juan Jesus.. in our starting line-up, our team won't be old anymore..

Don't be ridiculous, please find my one post which says he will score 30 goals next season or he will join la grande...

Only on FiF do you find people who say the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Edison Cavani "are not good enough for Inter" no one is nostradamus so to hate on the guy before he has even played for us is just as stupid as overhyping him. Let him be judged by his on field actions not by the preconceived opinions of the armchair experts here.

Forlan is making 3,5m€-4m€ (depending on the source) + bonuses.

If we still bring in someone like Lavezzi/Giovinco etc this is a good signing.

But if he's our main forward signing then it's not. It looks like we're still going after Lavezzi, so I won't complain.

Yup. Obviously no one would be happy with only Palacio signing in attack department but looks like we're desperately after Lavezzi which is good.

If it's true that Lavezzi truly wants to join Inter, then I wouldn't be too surprised if he eventually signs for us.

+1 Good explanation

We don't have enough cash, and for sure Stramaccioni asked specific kind of players to Branca so he could do his magic... In the end, it turns out to be Palacio, someone that our management decided not to buy last year.

People in this forum should start realizing this is not a game, and complaining about all new players that aren't from your top 5 won't help you accept them as part of the team

So the 2,6 was after taxes.

Maybe the reported 3 million is also gross salary, so it's about 1,5-1,7 net. That is much more believable than the 3 million net.

Dunno, so far all the numbers in Italian media are net when it comes to salaries. At least in England media they talk about gross salaries.

Anyway, hopefully 3m€ annually is not true.

----Principe---

is just awesome. His awesome tail doesnt make it any worse either.

if thats our case we would have the best attack in serie a. I hope i wont have to look at

We don't have enough cash, and for sure Stramaccioni asked specific kind of players to Branca so he could do his magic... In the end, it turns out to be Palacio, someone that our management decided not to buy last year.


Talking about what happened last year, we offered 10m for Palacio, Genoa rejected, we ended up with 2.7m for 1 year loaning... Zarate...

PALACIO: “MILITO, LAVEZZI AND THE SCUDETTO.”

“My Inter will be without limit.”
“Il Principe and I are very similar.”
“The team would be stellar if Pocho arrives.”
“I’m not thinking about scoring goals but only at winning.”

Milan – “I am Rodrigo.” In just two days in Milan, Palacio signed his future with Inter and immediately departed for vacation in Argentina. At the Linate airport, however, was his first emotion as an Interista. A welcome that he alsmost did not expect.

What has struck you at these early hours?
“The handshake with president Massimo Moratti, first and foremost. He has welcomed me here but especially he’s made me feel at ease immediately.”

Did he reveal the reason why he did not take you last summer?
“He doesn’t have to give explanation. It was destined to be like this. I think there were problems between the two clubs but I wanted to remain at Genoa for another year. The important thing is that I am here now.”

Have you spoken with Stramaccioni?
“Sure. It was very nice of him to call from Indonesia. Even Zanetti who sent me a few text messages while Diego Milito phoned me to wish me luck. It is a great feeling to hear from everybody to make me feel at home. It seems like a family here: a simple environment that I like very much.”

A 30 year-old you must enjoy an opportunity like this.
“I could not ask for anything more. This is a great occasion to be even more mature. Thank goodness that the deal was closed immediately so that I could go on vacation feeling more comfortable and when I return I would be ready to go and have a great season, perhaps one that could get us the Scudetto. I do not limit myself but do not ask me how many goals I will score. I would rather do anything to conquer a spot here and be at the service of this club by making only assists.”

Il Principle was 30 years old when he arrived at Inter…
“I will ask Diego what is his secret. Seriously though, it is unthinkable to score many goals like he has but surely I will give him a hand. In Genoa I equaled by record of 19 goals and 21 with the Italian Cup included. However, it is better to not make many calculations.”

Was the feeling between you to born with the Argentinian national team?
“Unfortunately for me because I was always used as an alternative to him. In training, however, we often played together. Apart from our position on the field, Diego and I are very similar in character: quiet and reserved. That’s why we will get along.”

And if Lavezzi arrives?
“Inter would have a stellar attack. For me it would be fantastic to play with il Pocho. I also met him with the Seleccion and our relationship is excellent. Let’s hope that he is coming here in Milan and not to Paris. I am curious to know more about my new teammates: there are many good players here including Pazzini who at Genoa, I saw up close and personal.”

Inter are also in negotiations with Palermo for Silvestre.
“I played with Matias at Boca. He is a very strong defender and I think it would be a very good acquisition.”

Speaking of Boca Juniors: you triumphed everywhere.
“Yes, it was a really good period. We were lucky enough to win a lot.”

You also scored some important goals there.
“Precisely. In the 2007 Libertadores, I scored a goal against Gremio in the final. Then at the Club World Cup in Japan, I scored the 1-1 goal against Milan who were with Nesta and Maldini: but unfortunately that was not enough to win.”

Are you booking one for the next derby?
“We’ll see. I certainly have the experience because in Buenos Aires, I played against River and in Genoa against Samp, both very heated challenges. And in Argentina, I also got a hat-trick.”

Explain one thing: the tail.
“What I said to Zanetti was obviously a joke (“If he cuts off my tail, I would kill him”). I have already paid my debt to the fans of Genoa and now I will not cut it like that anymore.”

But what was the story behind that?
“It was just a casual thing. When I was 18 years old, I decided to cut my hair short leaving only the tail. Then over time, it became my trademark. Now to many people, I am ‘Trenzo’ but I am really Rodrigo and I prefer to be called that way.”

What is the secret of the “gambeta”?
“People say that I pretend to be like Messi but that is an exaggeration. I try to be as fast as possible in dribbling and doing everything in a natural way. Certainly I always try to have fun and make my fans happy.”

Talk about leaving Genoa.
“Everybody behaved well with me. It was three wonderful years, very useful to settle down in Italy and in a difficult league like the Italian league. Now I am curisou to learn more about Milan. I would live in the center of the city but I will decide it together with Wendy to find the best solution for our child Juana.”

So now you are going on vacation, in Bahia Blanca?
“Yes. I always return there like always to meet my childhood friends and especially to embrace my father, Jose Ramon. He is now the coach of Olimpo di Bahia Blanca, coaching the youngsters there and that has always been his club. To also tell him about my arrival at Inter.”

When is your first asado (barbeque) with your new teammates.
“As soon as possible. For us Argentinian it is a ritual and with Cuchu, we have a long friendship. They (barbeque sessions) are the best to build a great team.”

06 Jun 12, 17:21
What random people talk around the internet is completely irrelevant to hard cold facts.

Milito doubters(including myself at the time) failed big time not because Milto suddenly turned into class player over night but because they didn't look into facts well enough.

Before joining Inter Milito scored more than 20 goals in 4 of 5 of his European seasons scoring 17 in that one. Including goals against Barcelona, Real Madrid, Milan, Juventus and Roma.

He scored +20 goals in 6 of his last 8 seasons.

Palacio has managed to score more than 20 goals twice in his whole career.

Also, I don't recall many people being pesimistic about Inter chances after Eto'o-Ibra swap once Sneijder joined the team.

Pajo
06 Jun 12, 17:28
ONCE Sneijder joined the team. Do we know who will join us till the end of mercato? 3 more months to go... I'm talking about individual transfers.

Another thing, of course Militos stats will be better, he is stiker, Palacio is utility player, is natural winger, but has also played as AM and CF.

The point is, we shouldn't judge the player till we see him play. Im not saying he will be better than Milito, or worse. Im not saying he will score 20+, or will score 2. All im saying is that we should just wait! At this moment it looks bad indeed, but there is still much time to improve the team, and Palacio at least deserves to be given a chance.

If you don't believe we will get decent players that will perform, than that's totally another issue :)

The Wall
06 Jun 12, 17:44
ONCE Sneijder joined the team. Do we know who will join us till the end of mercato? 3 more months to go... I'm talking about individual transfers.

And what's the problem with that exactly? They won in the last round with Sneijder! Why was it so wrong to think that team would be worse with Eto'o in Ibra's place without knowing Sneijder will come?

I also fail to see the logic behind connecting the Milto-Palacio comparasion with us not knowing who is going to join Inter untill the end of mercato.


Another thing, of course Militos stats will be better, he is stiker, Palacio is utility player, is natural winger, but has also played as AM and CF.

But when it comes to pointing out Palacio's 19 goals then the stats are a great argument.:okay:

Those stats shows you that Milito has always been elite or close to it in what he does. A scoring machine pretty much every since he layed his foot onto the European soil.

Palacio's other ''qualities'' are obviously not even close to being elite. No, I don't have any stat to back that up but I highly doubt we are looking at some world class dribble machine/creative force that nobody knew nothing of so far.


The point is, we shouldn't judge the player till we see him play. Im not saying he will be better than Milito, or worse. Im not saying he will score 20+, or will score 2. All im saying is that we should just wait! At this moment it looks bad indeed, but there is still much time to improve the team, and Palacio at least deserves to be given a chance.


And again, players do not not turn into beasts and become a class or two better over night. Palacio has been playing football for a long time, I don't see anything wrong with using his lame background to help us predict his perfomances with Inter. I don't really need to see him play(for Inter) before saying stuff about him. He has been around for a while, everyone is aware of his qualities.

Milito, on the other hand has always been a class player but people failed to see the facts supporting that. And I as already said, comparing the two is a blasphemy(just like saying you don't know if Palacio will be better than Milito).

Dude, seriously:rollani:.

It's pretty safe to say he will not even get close to what Milito did for our club. They are just not in the same league. It's like comparing prime Cambiasso and Thomas Gravesen.

MANTA
06 Jun 12, 19:57
This is getting repetitive.

Some people think he is good, others think he sucks.

The bottom line is he is our player, like him or not.

If you really can't find yourself liking Palacio, just think that given the salary difference and close transfer fees, he is a free upgrade over Pandev.

Holy shit. That is mad hilarious. I remember his days at Everton and particularly at Real :palm:

Anyways, point taken. Palacio may be a decent player, but paying 10mil for a decent player WHO IS 30 is simply not smart/good business at all. And comparing him to Milito and Eto'o is just plain old stupid. Those are world class players. Palacio is not. Should compare him to Suazo :troll:

Suneet
06 Jun 12, 20:14
I dont really think we will pay them 10mil cash.... I mean we'll give them half of Kucka, half of some other player, few youth player loans etc and settle the amount. Maybe a few million cash. If we can get a few good performances out of him, then it would be worth it. Its fine if he isnt the only wing forward we sign.

I'm very happy with this signing. Suazo has everything we want: Serie A experience, speed, finishing and dribbling. From what I know of he is a great person as well and I think he'll love his time at Inter.

Before we signed him, Suazo was one of the more prolific goal scorers in Serie A. So, just because Palacio was very good last season doesn't mean people aren't right to be suspicious that he'll be able to replicate that here.

Well Palacio before his 19 goal season was playing as more of a supporting striker, this season he was a CF and had one hell of a season.

Suazo was an exception to the rule and plus injuries pretty much hampered him. And I didn't see anyone complain about him back then. But apparently most of you have the power to see into the future and instead of being fans and supporting OUR players they want them to fail. But I'm not surprised about this since one of you thinks the 06 scudetto was a joke.

Gasperini finally gets his man. Ooops.

I am cautiously optimistic of this signing. Watching some of his games last year for Genoa, he stood out, whether he was scoring or not. I thought he gave Inter enough headaches. I think he can be a versatile player who can support Milito and has a chance to be compatible with him and give some width to the forward line. Pazzo, Zarate, Pandev and Forlan were clearly lost along side Milito.

yeah, I thought Suazo would do better as well, my point was just that sometimes players move to a bigger club and are unable to replicate the same level of performances, whether it be due to pressure, style of play or whatever. I think anyone expecting Palacio to repeat last season's form will be in for a rude awakening. I think we'll see something more along the lines of what he was the 2 years prior which was a decent player, and still an upgrade over anyone else we have out wide.

Palacio has been playing football for a long time, I don't see anything wrong with using his lame background to help us predict his perfomances with Inter. I don't really need to see him play(for Inter) before saying stuff about him. He has been around for a while, everyone is aware of his qualities.

Milito, on the other hand has always been a class player but people failed to see the facts supporting that. And I as already said, comparing the two is a blasphemy(just like saying you don't know if Palacio will be better than Milito).

Dude, seriously:rollani:.

It's pretty safe to say he will not even get close to what Milito did for our club. They are just not in the same league. It's like comparing prime Cambiasso and Thomas Gravesen.

Oh, your posts make me cringe :( They really do. It's clear you have zero idea of what sort of player Palacio is. I'd question whether you have any sort of idea any player outside of Inters squad is too.

If you had any idea what sort of player Palacio was you'd know he was an incredible talent, one of Boca's best in the last two decades. He moved to a mediocre serie A side and had been decent. Obviously he needed time to transition to the league. He is a right wing forward, these sorts of players aren't usually successful l in this league, and as I previously stated, hes been in a mediocre side.. playing in a position that most serie A sides could care less about. It's easy for him to stay under the radar when you have people such as yourself in positions of power, by people like you.. I mean people who think goals = good player. As I said, RWF.. not gonna get many goals, especially playing for a side like Genoa.

But this season hes played mostly in a more central role, and hes shown just how lethal he is. He is the exact type of player inter need. He is decently fast, agile, good on the ball, excellent finisher, good passer, can play on either wing and can play up front. Inter don't have any player like him. And Stramas preferred formation means we've seen Ricky Alvarez and Zarate playing in these positions. Zarate is good, but he doesn't have the brain yet to play the role effectivly, far too selfsih. Alvarez is slow on the ball, slow to think, and not suited for the role at all. Not to mention Forlan, hes not designed for this role at all.

And then you people want to pay 30m for Lavezzi? Okay, Lavezzi is stronger, faster, younger, far more energetic than Palacio. But hes not a good passer, hes not a good finisher, he offers no variety to the team.. he can play his role and thats it, hes a very poor crosser too. Palacio is a better passer and finisher, a better team player, smarter, far more experienced and he can play up front. Milito can't be relied on for an entire season by himself, the fact that Palacio is more than capable of taking over that role is a massive bonus. And he cost 10m? And people are still crying for Lavezzi?

Please... this is one of Brancas smarter transfers.

You made it sound like Lavezzi is downright mediocre in playing his "role". Dude, he's like one of the best in the role he plays, it's the quality of difference between the two players.

If you'd like to talk up Palacio's transfer by talking down Lavezzi's ability, fine.

But for me, Palacio is just a less costly solution to our wide position, and that's it.

There's no doubt Palacio will score goals, and loads of it, perhaps 30 goals, or 50 goals. However, he'll never provide the flair and creativity Lavezzi is able to provide, especially on a bigger stage.

LOL incredible talent.....You are completely deluded if you really believe Palacio is an ''incredible'' talent. He just isn't(and he never was), there is really no discussion here. No matter what do you pin it on, flying under the radar, transition to the league blah blah....He has never shown a level of football to merit being called an incredible talent. And he is 30 already.


by people like you.. I mean people who think goals = good player. As I said, RWF.. not gonna get many goals, especially playing for a side like Genoa.

Reported for stupidity and trolling.

Way to sugar coat Palacio's mediocrity/ trying to deceive people by pointing out his strenghts without putting it into context of his actual quality. It's not like you are the only one that has watched him play so everybody else just missed the genius of Palacio(including the rest of the clubs since there was no competition for him) Can you name me just one wing forward, ONE(1) that is considered elite or even a difference maker without great stats to go along with it? I just want one guy. Nobody sane buys that your eye test of his game is an valid enough argument. If you are a difference maker and a quality player you are going to produce no matter what.

And again, being better and producing better than Alvarez, Zarate, Forlan and the rest of our shit is really not making Palacio a player we need. It doesn't work like that at all. Also, Palacio theoretically being able to play all over the place in our positions of need doesn't mean he can do it good enough. Inter needs a difference maker and Palacio is not one. But how would you know what terms ''quality'' or ''difference maker'' actually mean in team sports anyways, right?

And the whole ''19 goals for Genoa playing a CF'' argument has already been shattered into pieces multiple times. Also, didn't you point out that goals isn't=good players but you still use the last Genoa season and his goals as argument?:pokerface:

And people are still crying for Lavezzi?

This tells me everything I need to know you hopeless Palacio dick rider. And you are the one calling people out for not knowing stuff about players outside of Inter?

FACTS:
Lavezzi is by far a superior player and a difference maker which Palacio isn't

Lavezzi is a proven Serie A performer who played great for Napoli in the CL as well

Lavezzi did that playing for a great team while Palacio had one fluke season playing for one of the worst teams in the league. Happened with many players before(you should check Vito's post concerning that)

Lavezzi is rated close to 30m and wanted by many for a reason. Only Inter wanted Palacio. There is a reason to it you know? A significant difference in terms of quality that is. When you pay Lavezzi you get a great player capable of bringing you closer to winning things(and earn more money by doing it). When you pay Palacio you just get an average squad player who can't make a differece to save his life.

Lavezzi for 27m>Palacio for 10m


And how exactly is he capable of taking over Milito's role? By not sucking as much as Forlan, Pazzini, Alvarez, Zarate lol? Because YOU say he is capable of playing anywhere up front in our formation?

The only other team that wanted Lavezzi is PSG. Rewind a couple of seasons back, Lavezzi was not even wanted by De La.

Lavezzi had a great support cast thereby making it a little easier. He would have been worth almost nothing in 3 years and we would be paying him Wesley Sneijder level wages at 30 and The Wall would then complain about that too... I'm not saying Palacio is better, I'm saying STOP THE FUCKING COMPLAINTS!

He's never played at a club where you have to win all the matches. I think these are fair points..

03 Jul 12, 15:47
So many options to choose from.....This one is really tough. I have watched Palacio ever since he was a youngster playing for Boca and always wondered why he did not make his way to Europe earlier. He played like a pitbull and had the skill to match it too. He is one Argentine player I wished would come to Inter for ages.

But now he has finally arrived at 30 years old, about 5 years too late. I just hope that he still has the legs in him to make the step up. Since I am a huge fan of his I will go with my heart and say that he will be an important player for Inter in the next few seasons scoring almost as many goals as he did with Boca and providing many assists.

Forza Rodrigo.....May that rats tail bring you good fortune in your time at Internazionale.

While I don't expect him to set the pitch on fire, I think he can be a decent addition. This is among the more sensible of Branca's dealings (of which there aren't many).

Zarate's performances last season meant Inter wouldn't exercise the option to take him, while Forlan was a waste space. Pazzini and Milito can only play as Prima punta, we needed someone to support. And given our general financial condition there weren't any better candidates I can see for 10 odd million who will take a salary of ~2m. In a year or two we would need to replace Milito and it would cost us big bucks. Maybe the money would be better saved for then, with the hope that we might make the CL and will have some cash to spend.
