Any idea why he wasn't included in the squad for the Pescara game? He seems fit enough to play. Know he's barely been with the squad for a day or so but Gargano and Cassano haven't been here much longer and they are set to play. Hopefully we get to see him in action in the EL next week.

He has been talked everywhere since the AVB days in Porto when AVB won the Europa League with Porto. Him together with Fernando, Hulk, Guarin, and Falcao. Perhaps, it's time to update yourself :D

He is clearly a left back and not a midfielder. Good game until his cramping up.

Doesn't really matter if he's a LB or a LCM. Him and Nagatomo switch play the entire first half. He provides a lot of speed and a wide coverage. I wouldn't mind seeing more of Alvaro-Gargano-Guarin.

Give the dude a break, especially on san siro pitch that he's not familiar with.

Beast of a player and in short time, he will be in Porto form which means Naga will not be on left for sure.

Obviously he wasnt. most of his crosses were too strong, which says that he used to play on a more rough pitch in Porto. he`ll need time to adapt to the Meazza pitch. I think he`s gona get it right next time cause it wont take much effort to softin the touch. he`ll get it more accurate too.

junkie
03 Sep 12, 12:21
I like him yesterday...actually I like him and naga on the left they comunicated well for the first game together, they just need to do a bit better on the defensive tasks...like the fact that we dont need to play just on the right side...

Ed.
03 Sep 12, 13:38
It's not only the crossing part he has to correct next game but he has to improve teamwork as well. Well, ofc it was his 1st game and I didn't expect him much last night but as a LCM he played too out wide. Hopefully he will improve. He showed a good character, good stamina, and some possible threats for opponents. The problem is we only have 1 player who can actually head the ball in the box. So, probably he needs to try not to cross the ball high too much.

IRR26
03 Sep 12, 13:51
I was surprised that Strama put him on starting 11. High tempo game against Roma is not the best possible game to make a deput.

He was lost but everyone would have been in his situation. Still he manage to perform ok. And have Pereira even played in LCM before.

Edward
03 Sep 12, 13:55
it was obvious he looks like a decent enough player. great determination and energy. first appearance, nothing to complain about. difference between nailing those crosses and not isn't very big

The real problem was we didn't have Obi to sub on for him. Cambiasso was just to slow for this type of game and was immediately overrun.

Lets all remember this was only his second game in 3 months and he played quite well.

Pajo
03 Sep 12, 15:26
I think he had good debut. I mean, we weren't playing bad at all till he was on the pitch. Once he came off, all the dynamism we had was lost. We were even mroe vulnerable on the counter, we were worse in the attacking side of the game, and so on.

I just hope it was preventive sub, he looked like injured. He can, and i believe he WILL be huge for us.

Very excited about Pereira. For me, he was one of our best players against Roma. What I liked about him was he bossed the left side of defence and midfield, can defend and switch to attack with ease, and has really good physical presence. A great buy at a really good price! Looking forward to him being an Inter leader.

Besnik
04 Sep 12, 11:21
Gotta appreciate his efforts. Although his crossing was not good, he still did nice work in overall. Had some nice runs and also won few balls, though he's defensively solid as hell. Could easily say that it was a solid debut.

He is a awesome player and his defense all of Uruguay sucked the last 2 games. I can't believe they tied Ecuador a team who can't do anything outside of Quito. I am pissed Uruguay didn't win. Guy needs to get match fitness and confidence. Porto f'd him over by waiting till the last minute to let him leave. I still think buying him for $10 million euro was a steal tho. He just play'd very very bad.

Gargano isn't a starter for Uruguay. I was surprised as their MF kind of sucked. Uruguay really needs to stop playing Forlan and play for Cavani.

MVD
12 Sep 12, 14:43
It was Forlán, who made the assist for Cavani´s goal. And apart from Muslera and Cebolla, who were the best on the pitch against Ecuador in my eyes, Forlán had a decent game.
Cavani has been criticised a lot in the last couple of weeks for mostly not shining for La Celeste in important games.
And Suárez - who people tend to regard as saviour of it all - didn´t help either against Ecuador, plus he is collecting way too many stupid yellow cards.

So who would be in your line-up for Uruguay?

Palito may have had 2 games to forget now for La Celeste- but nevertheless he can be absolutely fine for Inter.

Guarin, gargano, pereira

This seems massive. The only our problem is that we have too many offensive options (cassano, Palacio, coutinho, obi, alvarez, sneijder) with too little on the defense.

We will be fine up front, because Strama will eventually find working offensive formula. But if 1 of Rano, silvestre will fail, then we are in a huge trouble. Who knows, maybe strama will choose one of the CBs to play on the left like Mou did with Chivu. That could work.

Toninu
13 Sep 12, 13:05
I don't want Pereira to play in midfield because against Roma we always ended up outnumbered in midfield since Pereira goes up down the flank and then Guarin and Gargano end up a little isolated and we suffered because of it.

I don't get the disappointment with Pereira. He's played two games and he's played well in both of them. Pretty good defensively and also a creative force going forward from the leftback position which we haven't had on this team since Maxwell. Not to mention he's been played out of position for both of those games.

Wait...what? Maxwell was never a "creative force". He just ran forward until he could pass the ball to his buddy Zlatan a lot. I sure hope Pereira adds a lot more to our offensive game than Maxwell ever did.

It's because he is being played in LCM position. When Ricky gets his form back and Obi back from injury, hopefully he will be played @ LB and we will see the real Pereira.

But with Naga doing more and more to own the LB position it's not so easy for Pereira to just go into LB.......

thatdude
21 Sep 12, 11:44
Naga has been doing more to own the position. But in my opinion Naga should be switched to right back since he is right footed anyways and we seem to be having problems with that position. That will allow Pereira to play left back full time. I think this team is missing Obi more then we know.

wera
21 Sep 12, 13:37
I'd like Pereira to play LB, but without really going forward a lot, and Nagatomo on RB, attacking all the time, like Maicon. That would mean Zanetti is on RM, covering Naga, but we could try this. I know Naga could do a lot better than Jonathan there, at least right now. I would love Mbaye to play a game or two until Pereira gets his balls back :pokerface:

He's an athlete, he'll have to do for now. Seems to me a player who will take a long time to adapt to Serie A if he ever does. Would fit right in at an EPL club. I'm honestly not that disappointed by him though. He's not disastrous and will only get better.

William
23 Sep 12, 22:13
He is great at tackling, might be a more defensive lb than we wanted as defensively I can't really complain about his performances, as he tackles well, gets the ball and is physical, but going forward he seems weak and just does random crosses with no specific player targeted, so he has to improve that or we might have to look back into getting a more attacking rb

But I have faith that he will develop his attacking abilities and settle into serie a more

Pajo
23 Sep 12, 22:35
I can only say, it's obvious he is a LB, not midfielder. It's his nature.

The rest will come. I've seen a lot of him in Porto, in their treble season and i loved him. This Pereira you see is not him, and neither is Guarin. They will both get better with time.

If we play 3-4-2-1,then RM and LM will be Zanetti and one of Pereira and Naga.But knowing that Pereira has huge performances like a wing or LM I think is better Strama to choose him instead Nagatomo,but I'm not saying that Naga isn't good for the offensive tasks too.

25 Sep 12, 00:27
I said it when he first arrived at Inter. He needs time to grow up, to learn about Serie A, to gel with the team. He is not a superstar who can go straight into the team and deliver. He will be good with time, but for the sake of the team, he should play for 1 fixed position and role first until he becomes part of the team play. He often plays on his own.

Toninu

1 thing I notice from him, he takes all times and spaces to make a delivery. He needs to work on this. Serie A is not really forgiving. Once you wait, tackles are flying in. He needs to learn to deliver good balls in a very limited timing.

I'm not really worried about Pereira. He's a solid player and even with his early struggles and adapting to a new team/league, he hasn't been truly dreadful at any point. What I am worried about is Guarin. His play has been horrific this season. It's obviously a mental thing right now because he looks lost out there.

IRR26
09 Dec 12, 21:46
OMG that clearance. It looked like an own goal but reality was it pounched to his hand and went over the line for a corner. It should have been a penalty for Napoli but lucky for us even the Napoli players didnt see it.

He had maybe his best game but for me that clearance incident ruined big part of it. To begin with It was just horrible how carelessly he went in that situation. Pereira should stay away penalty area if he cannot understand that there can't be taken any risks.

Toninu
09 Dec 12, 22:43
He's been improving slowly and Strama is going to get a big headache considering that Yuto and JZ are pretty important players for us. But I'm happy with Alvaro his solo run with a cross to Cassano was part of the build up of the second goal. Hats off he did well.

rockball
10 Dec 12, 07:02
He showed why he is better suited to a 4 man defence than playing as a wingback. Also his attacking qualities are mainly getting on the byline and crossing instead of getting in and more involved. Those qualities are wasted since most of the time we don't have anyone in the box to receive his crosses. I don't doubt his quality but Strama has to find a way to make him more useful.

You should watch the replay, because our CBs were badly out of position and if Pereira hadn't filled up the hole, the situation would have cost us an equalizer.

It's not his involvement in the penalty area, but it's his refusal to use his freakin right foot that's pissing me off.
Ricky Alvarez and Pereira better start using their right foot more often or just trade off their real limbs with the artificial ones that Pistorius guy use.

He has improved lately. And crosses is not that simple as you make to be, he doesn't only need to send the ball into the box, but he also needs the forward to understand it. He needs more understanding with the teams.

Besides, not like our forwards are good at reading crosses or head the ball.

anyway, the best scenario would be Naga on the right, Pereira on the left. Two energetic players that can only improve and run non-stop for 90 minutes. I am sorry about Zanetti, but he has been one of our worst players this season. He should be the first option for few roles, wing back, CM and RCB. Still valuable player, but imo, not for sure starter anymore.

Inter defender Alvaro Pereira has revealed his childhood hero was Roberto Carlos.

The 27-year-old joined the Nerazzurri from Portuguese giants Porto in August and though many have likened him to another Brazilian full-back - Maicon - Pereira revealed it was the former Real Madrid man who caught his eye growing up.
Don't Miss

"Roberto Carlos was my role model. He has always been a player I've liked watching," he told Inter Channel.

"I'm the next Maicon? I don't like to make such comparisons. All I can say is I'm glad I had the chance to train with him."

The Uruguay international has made 22 appearances in all competitions so far this season, but despite that impressive tally he remains convinced he can perform even better in the second half of the campaign.

"I'm my own biggest critic. I've only shown a six out of 10 in terms of what I can do. I can do much better," he continued.

"But I always give everything I have for the shirt when I'm on the pitch. Every touch I have on the ball is the most important.
Pereira also commented on the racism storm involving Kevin-Prince Boateng and his decision to leave the field of play after suffering racist abuse at the hands of Pro Patria fans in a recent friendly.

"I don't know what I would do if I was in the same position, it's hard to say," he added.

"I've never had anything like that happen to me. You hear lots of things at the stadium, I just try to ignore them."

I'm sure he will show his value when he plays at LB and not LWB. That's his position.

This year, the 3 man defence is in a way good since it lets Samuel mentor Rano and Juan. Once they are experienced, they can play as the two CBs.

Is the difference between LB and LWB so much that it will turn him from shit to being great? I highly doubt that.

There is big difference. As a LB, you have space in front of you to run into. A LB usually builds up pace much deeper and has some momentum to take on players, this happens much later for a LWB. Not to mention that a LB will have some overlapping options with a midfielder or winger ahead of him. The LWB doesn't have too many options to combine with.

IMO, left back, left wing back, left midfield, left winger all require different characteristics. While some players can function in multiple such roles, not all can.

There is big difference. As a LB, you have space in front of you to run into. A LB usually builds up pace much deeper and has some momentum to take on players, this happens much later for a LWB. Not to mention that a LB will have some overlapping options with a midfielder or winger ahead of him. The LWB doesn't have too many options to combine with.

IMO, left back, left wing back, left midfield, left winger all require different characteristics. While some players can function in multiple such roles, not all can.

Bingo, you saved me some time to type :D


I have yet to see Pereira to function in any role.

he has had few decent games. He hasn;t been nowhere near as good for the money we spend, but he hasn't been as bad as some claim too.

I haven't seen those amazing crosses of his which people were drooling over in the summer.

I understand the difference and agree that there is one. But to me his problems won't be fixed by playing as a left back and that was the point I was trying to make. Poor decision making, poor crossing, dominated by Piris. I don't think change of position will fix all that.

The crossing is imo Stramas idea, he always tries low crosses. We dont have jumpers in the team anyway :D

Pereira is a good player, but at Inter we cannot use the players at their best.
Obi could be a hell of a LCM, Coutinho a super winger or SS, Naga a brilliant RB, Cambiasso a great DM. But Strama doesn't use them right, and so it seems all this players are shit.

Really don't know what did you see in Pereira and Gargano, not only at their clubs but I've seen almost every Uruguay NT match for years and I've always though they were average to decent, the problem is not even that they've flopped because that happens and they've even played a little below my expectations but I just have never seem anything of what you see in them, I don't really get it it's like we've seem completely different players.

I mean the way you've suggested that Gargano's passing was good, it has never been and it'll never be, his passing has always been average worst than Cambiasso and a little better than Zanetti, he has never had any composure on the ball and his defensive skill has always been at most decent. What he adds is workrate, pressing and speed, that has always what I've seen of him and it's waht his showing at Inter.

Pereira offers physicality, workrate and speed, not much else. He has never been more than a average crosser, basically non-existent technical skills, crappy passer, not that good at getting at dangerous positions, zero creativity and vision, terrible dribbler and absolutely horrible at tight spaces. Another thing he had going for him is he was solid defensively but he hasn't showed that at Inter.

If Management was seeing something else in them like what you seem to have, then I've no fucking idea why, because I've never seem anything remotely like that.

I've seen them only in cups, south american and world cups. Not in friendlies and qualification. Pereira at Porto offered pretty much everything, great crosses for Falcao, great off the ball movement, and so on.

Gargano at Napoli too, he was great, rarely losing balls, and rarely misplacing passes.

Our players don't need to jump, it's not like there is anyone besides our opposition in the penalty area when we are attacking anyway.

he isnt cut out to be a wingback. he is however solid as a defender and as defensive lb in a backfour he would imo be a loot better.
the way we use him or how strama wants to use him is ineffective and doesnt bring out his full potential.

he is being played out of position.
