Gabi Mudingayi




Welcome to Internazionale!

Let me see here -


One of the best DMs in past few years
Serie A proven
Requested by our coach
Low transfer fee
Low wages
Knows what's expected of him and won't create a fuss over starting spot or attitude



I know he isn't much appreciated but this would work out well I believe.

Forza Inter!!

I thought Universe was gonna open this thread ? And Lionheart made it clear.

@ Lionheart - Please warn me in advance when you go ape shit about all this, ever since I seen that hulk pic of you i get a little frightened of you now :D



P.S. Welcome to Inter Gaby (if your reading this)

Well... looks like we have a winner!!!

Welcome Gabi, it's not your fault. If I'm in the same situation I would join a club like Inter as well even if I know that I just have to sit on the bench. Rumours says that he won't earn much so I could live with him - but only if Poli comes back :depress:

I suspected that no one wanted to burn his hands with this one. It doesn't happen often that a player signs, is made official, gives interviews and trains with the team but still has no thread here.

If this works out well, then I should be given the right to open all new player threads :oblivious:

Welcome to Inter, Gabi !!
Well... I don't think it's a bad transfer, he's proven and doesn't cost much. Our midfield seriously lacks muscle and it seems he can provide that... at least I hope so.

We like to convince ourselves that he will turn into another Maicon or Cambiasso. Let me remind you of what we have with this type of transfer in the past 5 years.

750k for the loan and another 750k to buy him out

He wasnt good player for Lazio he wasn't that good in Bolonga somehow we think for 750 000 he may be good deal, the quality is what we need right now not old mediocre players. Rejuvination my ass. FFFUUUUCCKKKK

Then again i cant hate the playa he isn't to blame cause Branca has sick love to sign players over 30. FUCK YOU AND GTFO BRANCA!!

:palm:

well, at least it's only loan. I just hope he won't mess up in league games (only in coppa or maybe el) so if he's as useless as I think he is, he'll leave in 6 months without too much harm caused. otherwise, he'll be a strong candidate for the facepalm of the year award 2012. :chan:

interista4
20 Jul 12, 16:40
First time voting 1. Sorry, not the player's fault. Even if he does decent to well we simply don't need him.
By rebuilding you're meant to start playing youngsters at some point but we're only replacing them with 30+y'os.
No point in a backup DM If he's backing up fucking Cuchu who is even older, you don't rebuild this way.

As for now if It's true that those kind of transfers were requested by Strama, I am fairly disappointed.
Thought this guy had balls to not do the exact same mistakes as Ruinieri did last season, hope he proves me wrong still.

You're having a laugh dino. I'm sure we'll see the following sad-ass midfield over the course of the season:

Cambiasso-Mudingayi/Stankovic-Zanetti

Which qualifies as the worst midfield of any "big" club in Europe. Hell even Chievo and Swansea have better ones. Whatever though. Welcome Gaby.

I didn't like the idea at first, but it got me at the moment when Gaby hold our jersey and I was like damn that brother came a long fucking way, so sorry for being sentimental but this guy, Gaby the almighty, plays for something greater than fulfilling his job. Gaby'll bleed for Inter and the pride of all African brothers and sisters. Gaby, the unsung, will spit some blood of a slave... and showing heart of a lion. Every time he steps on the pitch he's like holding down the entire African continent from Egypt across the Kilimandscharo up to Capetown.

He's not here just to play 3 games throughout all season, he's here to play a lot more... and believe it or not, he will start lots of games

when Paulinho was refusing our offer to come to Inter, he knew he was a second dish, yet he kept positive and never stopped saying great things about Inter, that's how much he wanted this club, not like some other bastards who prefer staying in Brazil just so he can dominate a crappy league... fuck Paulinho and welcome Gaby

This guy is clearly a fucken boss. Strong, fast (ish) energetic, determined, relentless. Hes exactly what inter needs in the midfield, he brings such a presence, such determination and passion. Whenevr Cambiasso has his lethargic days, he'll be there ready to tear shit up. Can't understand how people can't like this transfers, for the cost, it's brilliant.

infact, if he was so fucking good, why did bologna let him go for 750k?

Yeah, he has played in Serie A regularly for years. For Bologna, an average team. An average player (Serie A as a whole not just Bologna) in an average team. Gaby Mudingayi is a slightly above average player in Serie A. I'm not calling him a bad player, average =/= shit,bad. I'd call lots of players at Inter average.

Who ranks Gaby as one of the best DM's in Europe ?

Good display by him today, but that hardly says anything. It just underlines the fact that we should withhold our judgement of him until the official games.

Chill the fuck down people. Gaby will be useful since Cuchu needs a a sparring man to give him a breather. Season will be long and many of you might eat their words later on.

Cant you understand the company is out of fucking money. Gobbi singed Asamoah for 30Mil, Gaby is our cheap 'Asamoah' , justlike Boakye is for Bilan.

Current situation cannot deliver us WC stars.

yeah, he was great today, probably our best player, but it's fucking Como, a friendly with C2 team :D We will see how he performs in Serie A, and reserve my opinion for there. So far, it's that he is above average player.

rsz85
24 Jul 12, 20:53

How? How do you think will he perform? He has been playing for 8-10 years in Serie A and he was one of the best DMs in the league in a fucking crappy Bologna side, he will be very good at us. I just say.

So please everyone, dont underrate players because they are not stars.

In price/worth rating he was the best possible option, im sure.

Pajo

I would have supported that deal had it came when we needed it, in January.. we should have used this summer to rebuild our offense to ensure that we could never enter a situation where we'd go a month without scoring.. but instead we simply got a temporary fix.. same goes for this deal.. we don't need physical beasts we need graceful passers.. what's the point of Gaby winning the ball back 100 times if Inter as a team can't convert even 5 of those into decent goal scoring opportunities?

I assume he's talking about the interceptions/tackles stats from whoscored and other such sites. The same sort of stats that rank Lucio as the best Inter player last season.

On that note, these kinds of stats never tell the full story (despite what Vito might say :P).

As those stats show, Lucio made tons of class tackles and interceptions but these were combined by calamitous mistakes as well, thereby balancing his overall contribution to negative.

Likewise, we'll see about Mudingayi. I don't think he'll be bad at all, and people here rightfully praise his performance but no ones mentioning the numerous tackles he made, which in a real match, would have resulted in bookings.

I'm not going to look into it or comment too much because this was just a friendly and both the positives and negatives of his performance can be looked at under two-way scrutiny i.e. Will he be as solid in competitive matches? Who knows. Will he be less reckless in real matches? Again, who knows.

Bill
25 Jul 12, 01:04
I don't think he will ever be as reckless as Muntari but he is going to get his fair share of fouls and yellow cards. He passed the ball better than I had anticipated although almost no pressure was placed on him by Como midfielders.

LOL!


Mudangayi is now one of Europe's best DMs.. I've heard it all now! No wonder Moratti can continue to do the shit he does.. He's got idiots who'll accept it blindly and even say stupidness like this.

Ugh.. I didn't say he is one of Europes best DM's. Thanks for revealing yourself as an ignorant, I'll know now to take your posts with a grain of salt. Hes consistently ranked very highly in multiple respected media outlets. I don't play this game, but I've seen people mention FM on here multiple times, and he is rated very highly in here. You know there is a reason for these things, some truth behind the matter, it's not just a random occurrence.

Gaby doesn't have the technical ability, ball playing skills, of attacking composure to be one of the best DM's as DM as an all round position usually. But he has the strength, energy, tactical awareness, determination and defensive prowess to be one of the best defensive DM's in europe, and having watched him sevral times over the years I'm actually aware of what type of player he is, and know how good he is defensively, his defensive ability goes far beyond many "big name" DM's defensive ability, but of course they supersede him in technical area of the game.. Think a less aggressive prime gattuso, with a little more passing ability, and a little less defensive ability, thats basically Gaby.


Would you like the signing more if he had a big name? Then you might know who he is an approve of it? I'm sorry, but there is a world of football that extends far beyond your limited scope... and there are many, many under-rated gems in football.



Moratti: "The only reason we didn't go for Yaya Toure or Nigel De Jong was because of Gaby Mudingayi"

Exactly what I'm talking about, you clearly have no idea what sort of player these guys are, but just like them because of their names. Yaya is so piss poor defensively, citys midfield gets torn apart constantly by his lack of awareness, luckily city have kompany who can deal with 90% of city's midfield mistakes. But what do inter have... an error prone/slow samuel/rannochia? A lazy, poor midfield... and now you want to add Yaya into the mix? Just because hes a big name? :lol:

When city want a secure midfield, they have to actually bring on De Jong to compensate for Yayas weakness.
Don't get me wrong, Yaya is a wonderful player, but hes not a DM. Hes a ball playing CM, which inter also need, but it was a higher priority to get another player that could hold the midfield and bring some security to the team. Of course it's also a priority to get a player who can pass, unfortunately inter need both. As you can't rely on a 32 year old, often times lethargic Cambiasso to hold the midfield. And now that they have backup for the latter, Inter can focus on a ball playing CM. But who knows if that will even happen...

And De jong? Please... Gaby shits all over De jong defensively. Hes stronger, better attitude, much more energy and determination. Again, there are other players outside of those who have big names, and these players are actually quite good.

And yes he is reckless, and he is very, very likely to get many cards. Hes that sort of player, the sort of player that has a real presence in the midfield, and actually makes the opposition players worry about their physical safety when they come up against him. It's about damn time that Inter got a player like this in the midfield.

I thought it was pretty obvious I was throwing their names in the mix because they were players we were linked to this summer...

Its clear there are two types of players we're after in midfield. Someone like Paulinho/Poli, and someone like Mudingayi/De Jong. I'm not saying these players are directly comparable, but that seems to be the two midfield categories we're after............








I didn't say he is one of Europes best DM's

Yes you did. See my signature:



Hes ranked consistently as one of the best DMF's throughout europe.


And you said it again.



one of the best defensive DM's in europe

Nein
25 Jul 12, 09:43
I said hes ranked, RANKED as one of the best DM's in europe. Not he is one of the best DM's in europe, there is a big difference. Hes ranked as one of the best in the defensive regard, not all round.
You need a more balanced all round game to be one of the best DM's in Europe, something Gaby doesn't have. But doesn't mean that his defensive awareness isn't one of the best in europe. Is that so hard to get into your brain?



And you said it again.


one of the best defensive DM's in europe

If you had the mental capacity to comprehend the text you just quoted, you would see that it says "One of the best DEFENSIVE DM's". Not one of the best DM's. As he is one of the best defensive (note the defensive, can you see it?) DM's in europe.

Again, just because you seem to have trouble with basic comprehension, that means he is one of the best in defensively ability, he has been complimented in many respected media outlets got his defensive contribution. It does not mean he is one of the best DM's in the world, it purely means that he shines in that one aspect of his game, but unfortunately.. lacks in other areas.

At what point does this get ridiculously tautological?

He's not one of the best defensive defensive midfielders in football, but he IS one of the best defensive defensive defensive midfielders


I mean cmon man.




Also

no. There is no fucking difference between someone being RANKED as one of the best DMs in europe, and being one of the best DMs in europe.

You're pulling it apart at the definition of the defensive midfielder. NOT the definition of ranked.

Argument A does not equal Argument B.

I actually completely agree he doesn't have the balance game too be one of the best in Europe. I also agree that not all DMs are the same.


But saying that 'He's ranked as one of the best in Europe does not mean he is one of the best in Europe' is utter tosh, and you know it.


The world ranked is basically superfluous in this sentence, as theres no difference between the opinion of the majority and the overall concept of how good a player is. The vast majority will agree that Ronaldo is a world class player, that's why everyone considers him a world class player.

What you've said is basically:

Gaby Mudingayi is considered by a large number of people to be one of the best DMs in Europe. But he is not generally considered one of the best DMs in europe.



What you've written is completely oxymoronic and nonsensical. It's a tautological oxymoron, basically.



If you feel his defensive awareness was ranked as one of the best, then SAY THAT. Don't say 'He's ranked as one of the best', but suddenly backtrack and say 'oh wait I only meant his defensive awareness'...

I think what you're trying to say is that some of his attributes are well rated, however, as a defensive midfielder, he is not one of the best in Europe.

Because all this 'he's one of the best defensive defensive defensive midfielders in europe, but he's not one of the best defensive midfielders' stuff is ridiculous, and completely inarticulate.

Either you're an idiot, unable to articulate your point correctly, or unaware of basic logic.



Somehow I have a strange feeling I'm arguing with a child...

---------- Post added at 10:08 ---------- Previous post was at 09:52 ----------






Okay

Let me try and restate it in a more concise manner.



Let A = 'Mudingayi is rated as one of the best DMs in Europe'
Let B = 'One of the best DMs in Europe'

You assert A != B

For this to be true, there needs to be some kind of absolute measure of quality. One that transcends opinion, or knowledge of the player, but rather, an absolute quality of them. This would imply some kind of cosmic/trans-Universal 'football manager' database, since ultimately, everything terrestrial requires someone to have formed an opinion of a player at some time.

Therefore, I assert that B is infact a restatement of A.

And ergo, your argument that A!=B is infact a logical fallacy as you are infact stating A!=A, which is clearly bollocks





Where you then go is:
Let C = 'His defensive awareness is one of the best in Europe'.

I'm not going to analyze the facts behind this statement, but rather the statement itself.

You assert, correctly, that C!=B. A person's overall ability is not governed by his ability in one aspect of the game. That is a factually correct statement.

You, however, falsely assert that C=A. We've already established B=A, therefore your assertion that C!=B but C=A cannot be valid.

25 Jul 12, 10:16
At what point does this get ridiculously tautological?

How is it tautological? Football isn't black and white. There is speciality roles, there is players that excel so much in one area of the game, that their lack in other areas, can be over looked. Arebloa/Ivanovic are some of the best DEFENSIVE sidebacks in the world, that doesn't mean they are some of the best sidebacks in the world. It's a real simple concept, basic football really. I'm quite surprised it's lost on you.



There is no fucking difference between someone being RANKED as one of the best DMs in europe, and being one of the best DMs in europe.

Yes there is, when they are ranked as one of the best in their speciality role. I'm so sorry, that I didn't specify this time, exactly what I've said last time. But if you've read through the multiple posts I've made in Gaby's threads, it's pretty fucken evident that I've repeatdly said he is great defensively, but lack lusture in every other aspect of his game.



The world ranked is basically superfluous in this sentence, as theres no difference between the opinion of the majority and the overall concept of how good a player is. The vast majority will agree that Ronaldo is a world class player, that's why everyone considers him a world class player.

It is not superfluous, if you actually read what I've wrote over and over again. Ranked for his defensive ability. Not ranked for his over-all ability. Ronaldo is an all round player, hes ranked as one of the best all round players. You can be ranked very highly in one regard of your game, football isn't black and white.


Gaby Mudingayi is considered by a large number of people to be one of the best DMs in Europe. But he is not generally considered one of the best DMs in europe.

And if you'd read through the posts I've made in Gaby's threads, you'd see I'm saying hes ranked as one of the best in Europe for his defnsive contribution. Not as an all round player. Is this really so hard to get into your head, or are you just a huge troll?


If you feel his defensive awareness was ranked as one of the best, then SAY THAT. Don't say 'He's ranked as one of the best', but suddenly backtrack and say 'oh wait I only meant his defensive awareness'

And if you've read the constant statements I've made in Gabys threads, you'd see I said exactly that. I didn't specify this one time, as it seemed unnecessary giving how many times I've said it in the past. I wasn't expecting a troll to come a long and nitpick and try up his ego, by completly taking away from my original point. My bad.



Somehow I have a strange feeling I'm arguing with a child.

Considering the trolling and ad hominem attacks coming from your end, I find this quite hypocritical.

Since I've made my point crystal clear in the past and explained it over and over again and the one time I didn't specify to the exact my point, and you've made such a big deal out of it. I'm going to assume you are nothing more than a troll, and put you on ignore.

.h.
25 Jul 12, 10:24
I'm not trolling you once. It seemed to me you cant understand the basic logic.




Anyway.


Since this is the biggest recurring theme:


And if you'd read through the posts I've made in Gaby's threads, you'd see I'm saying hes ranked as one of the best in Europe for his defnsive contribution. Not as an all round player. Is this really so hard to get into your head, or are you just a huge troll?



You're assuming I've read a post of yours that is not made in this thread, not quoted anywhere, and certainly doesn't appear in your posts about Mudingayi. Perhaps you should make your posts a bit more articulate/explicit, so as to prevent this confusion in future? Because not just myself, but several other members made the assumption you were talking about his abilities in general.

I'm sorry if I'm not aware of the contents of post 31431234 made 3 months ago in a different thread.


But nowhere in THIS thread (and yes, I checked all 6 pages), did you make the assertion that


hes ranked as one of the best in Europe for his defnsive contribution

Not once.

No where did you quote a post you've previously made to include this assertion.




So when you stated that


Hes ranked consistently as one of the best DMF's throughout europe.



the assumption that you meant:


Hes ranked consistently as one of the best DMF's throughout europe.


rather than:


People generally consider Mudingayi to have one of the best defensive contributions in Europe, but still he's an extremely limited midfielder, who does not stand up to any of his comparable peers in the modern game (such as Mascherano, or Marchisio, etc)



is not entirely an invalid one to have made.




If you're going to make an assumption which doesnt - at the very least - appear in the same THREAD, then you should frigging point it out.

:( Sorry, but thats some seriously dumb shit. So what was Milito in Zaragoza/Genoa... an average player because he was in an average team? Logic.

No, Milito was a good player in an average team. Racking up impressive goal scoring seasons and was in the Argentine NT. That's why we spent like 4 times the amount of money on a similarly aged player.

We took a good player from an average team and put him into a good team and he became better. Much like what will happen to Mudingayi.

Another report just shed some light on why we wanted to sign a cheap alternative like Mudingayi so quickly.

Apparently, Obi-Mariga-Stankovic are all looking at lengthy stays on the injured list. Which means we can neither sell them or use them for the next several month. So without Mudingayi we would have started the season without any substitute midfielders.

Mudi playing CM still does ample defensive work and able to pressure further up the pitch better than Cambi. He's also a solid passer and can add more urgency to his play when required.

I see what you mean but i think it is more a fitness issue.
Every manager who uses a 3 man midfield expects his box to box cm to bang some goals during the season through long shots or insertions in the box and Cambiasso has been always good with the 2nd.
Now he just can't do that back and forward movement probably.

Let me as Belgian tell you why Mudingayi doesn't play in our NT. Simply the fact for he has always sucked when playing for Belgium. He didn't do nothing special, and added nothing as well, But I must say in those times, our National Team sucked. Nowadays we have a great team. With 3 midfielders spots. And when you are able to select Felliaini, Defour, Witsel, Dembélé, De Bruyne even Vertonghen, you have a luxury problem. (Note : none of these midfielders/attackers/Defenders have the DM qualities Mudi has maybe Vertonghen/Felliaini does) We don't even call up Nianggolan, who in Italy is rated better as Mudingayi (I suppose so). Plus the fact now he's 30. He can't offer nothing in our NT for the WQ 2014. Sad but true.
Oh and Junior 55. Those 4 Pajo has named up. Have played every match. The midfield Belgium now uses is for me pure class.

------------------Witsel----------------- (Can be replaced by Defour, Simons, Vertonghen)
--------Felliaini----------Dembélé-------- (De Bruyne, Defour, Witsel, Chadli, Hazard,...)

IMO all the midfielders except for Simons are better then Mudingayi. Nevertheless he plays for the grande Internazionale

With performances like today. I considered him ancillary but I will be watching him closely, he opened my eyes to what he can provide. Literally kept the midfield together by himself when you analyse it.

at least you know what to expect from Gaby... he is consistent so far... not like Guarin... you dont know what you'll get from him if he plays...

i was more genrally bashing the apparent transfer stratgy at that point. more mindless rage at the lack of activity for the first 2/3 of the mercato in which we had only got him, not got Poli and renewed Chivu

when the details about how cheap he was (is) emerged, i bashed no more :P, but sorry for any bashing that occured before hand

He is definitely consistent with his performances.. but he needs to be a lil more careful as well as he is pretty consistent in getting injuries too.

If Mudi does turn out to boss for us this season, I think everyone on this forum owes me a beer in compensation. I must be the only guy here who hasn't doubted him at any time!

Well I supported him since his first day here since I didn't KNOW him. Some people here bash players based on their stats and even their name before watch him play.

What a beast player he is, more than great backup player.

Gabi is better than any midfielder in Milan except Montolivo and De Jong. He is what Muntari should have been for Internazionale F.C. A solid bulldog that kills to win the ball back. Mudingayi has a huge pair of balls and it shows in his play, a mad man, a mad dog, a Chuck Norris, a Bruce Willis... I hope you get my point.

He is like a hoe hungry for the co*k except that he's not a hoe and he's hungry for the ball.

Well, there were plenty of reasonable one's with Mudingayi signing. My post is below. Granted, a bit later in the argument with some people ridiciluing me for believing statistical facts rather than stereotype's of a 30-year old player of Bologna, I also said that it's funny coming from same people who blindly believe in Samuel and Cambiasso. Strama has managed to fix them with the change of system, making us more compact and making their physical level less important and putting more balance on the tactical knowledge and experience of them.




Everybody listen up and read those few(many) lines!

I have no idea how he plays. I've never even properly noticed him. I have no real idea if he is good or bad.

However, I am mighty sure that our scouts don't randomly put on table a name like Gaby Mudingayi.

And as a man who enjoys good football statistics, I decided to check out Mudingayi (via WhoScored.com - one the men behind it is an Inter fan).

He is the player with third most tackles in Serie A. His amount of tackles (4.8 per game) is only behind Arturo Vidal and Valon Behrami, both impressive battlers when I see them. Our highest was Lucio with 3.3, second highest Cambiasso with 3.2. That's an impressive difference actually if you see those things more often.

He made more interceptions (2.4 per game) than Behrami (2.1) and Vidal (2.2). Overall he is around 12th in the central midfield department for interceptions. Cambiasso? 2.2.

Now, what actually sort of impresses me is the fact that he makes 2.4 fouls a game. That's a lot, in comparision Cambiasso makes 1.2. And he has gotten 11 yellow cards over last season. BUT no red. Cambiasso got only one yellow card - in a way, defensive midfielder has to get cards because there are bound to be situations where you have to make a decisive foul. What seems to be the case is that our midfielders, including Cambiasso, cannot get close to players, while Mudingayi can.

The statistics clearly tell, that this guy is actually one of the best "clean-up" guys in the league and he might very well turn out to be worthy of Inter. Either the ball goes past him or the man, but not both - as they say.

Statistics don't tell much about his passing side as you actually need to see in real life to see what kind of passes he makes. Looks like an average player in that department, decent passer and no stupid mistakes (aka bad passes leading to goals for opponent). Decent long balls.

I too question the decision to sign such an old player when we're having a "rejuvenation" process, but when looking at things objectively, Mudingayi for a cheap fee might turn out a very good deal for us and he has done nothing to deserve being thrown to the bin by the fans already.

He made one passing error the entire game and played extremely well, even his yellow I would grant him, because if he didn't we would have been countered badly. I can assure you he was subbed because of the yellow for safety. We were chasing the game and couldn't risk going down to 10 men, not because of his performance. It was decent.

If you didn't watch the game you should say that instead. His ball control was not a problem. Him and Gargano were not creative enough in the midfield to spring the game open.

He is very good for Europa League and also coming off the bench to add extra muscle into midfield.
This is a shame.

If Obi can ever stay healthy, this is pretty big for him though. Possibly even Mariga and Duncan too if they're in Strama's plans. With all due to respect to Mudingayi (who has been solid don't get me wrong) he's not really part of the future here at 31 years old. I'd rather see what some of the more unknowns can offer us going forward. Branca and them always talk about integrating more young players into the first-team. Well now is the time to act on that.
