Cavani and Suarez will easily cost more than 30m, and at that price, no way he didn't mention anything about Falcao.

Hi guys, this is Walter Gargano. Thanks for all the welcomes! I am so hyped to be here at Internazionale, wonderful club full of champions like my friend Branca told me. We are currently on vacation in Rio de Janeiro, so I wont be playing against Vaslui today, but hey - a little vacation can't hurt.

And I'll tell you one secret...we are not selling J.Cesar or Maicon. Not even Alvarez. We are actually getting rid of that primadona Wesley, so when I come back with Branca on the 30th of August, Sneijder will be gone. God I hate that guy!

Yeah it really has. A few more sales involving high wage players like JC and Maicon (would like Deki as well but probably not gonna happen) and this mercato will be quite the success considering the restraints placed on us, what with the limited funds and no CL football.

Anyway, welcome Gargano! I'm excited about this move. He was one of Napoli's more interesting and underrated players for awhile now.

Welcome! ;)

Makes me think it was all in Branca's mastermind to not invest in Poli and invest in this guy, Poli might have potential to become one of the best, but it's just that, potential, Gargano's been playing at a really good level through his stint with Napoli, for the same amount the money, we're getting a very more developed player that will surely help us to accomplish the goals we have for this season

This is a translation from google, but I think you can get the point:

Alberti: "Inter will see the true Gargano. As he recovers balls ..."

"Finally, Inter, with the right discipline, we will see the true Gargano." And 'safe explosion of Uruguayan midfielder, Inter buying new, the FIFA agent and expert in South American football Jose Alberti, that the drafting of TMW explains why the median of farewell to Naples: "I think from the point of technical and environmental situation in the Gargano in blue is no longer the best, here in this context has been induced to ask for the sale.'re talking about a player who potentially is a champion, but Napoli have never been able to exploit all its potential, while Inter will be able to regulate it tactically and do diventerare a pin Stramaccioni team. "

The turning point "Gargano recoverable balloons Did not unique in the world, dynamism, determination and stroke player in the front end, but unfortunately in Naples no one has ever made ​​it clear that his job was to be just that, without then trying to set the action or seek personal initiative. Inter, of this I am sure, be able to educate him instead and let him know that once recovered the ball must pass it to teammates more skilled technically. Used in this way can become a great, one that could end up with an assessment of the market even 20 million to 25 million. A regret for Napoli, a big deal for Inter ... "

Sweet signing one I'm much more happy with then De Jong or Fernando, personally I feel the old fashioned CM/DM just sitting deep, passing sidewards/backwards and committing the occasional cynical foul to break up play or act as the "hard man" is extremely dated. Gargano is a central midfielder much more suited to the modern game, he's got decent technique, quick and can run with the ball at his feet. He'll add much more value to team IMO and with him Guarin and Cuchu we would have on of the most dynamic midfields in Serie A.

From what i saw yesterday he is made for this team. Missing link, a pure defensive workhorse in the middle who knows how to press and when needed to go forward and pass the ball. Not even that we must buy him at the end of the year but he would be huge for us. He may be the best buy out since Sneijder.

Dude is quick! He's gotta be one of the fastest guys in the team already, amazing when you think he's primarily a DM/CM. I love his hustle, finally someone with a bit of mongrel in midfield. He's exactly the sort of player we have needed for the last 2 years.

Just imagine we had a player with Alvarez technique but the physical attributes of Gargano he would be a BOSS!

28 Aug 12, 06:38
Very impressive debut, his work rate is just too good and much needed addition to the team.

Just checked his stats, Guarin won more tackles than Gargano but the most impressive stat was Sneijder's. He made 5 or 6 key passes, that is just superb.

Hasan
28 Aug 12, 06:42
I loved one move of him where he takes the ball in our half and trying to go forward. And after he saw that all players infront of him are closed he didn't pass ball back like Motta, Stan ot Cambi. He decided to use his speed and space infront of him and run with a ball. That totally fucked up Pescara zone defence.

Can't agree with you enough. Said it when he first arrived it's good to have a CM who isn't afraid to pick up the ball and run with it at his feet, you don't have to be Kaka and dribble through the entire midfield. I wish we had more midfielders with this sort of mentality. Poli used to try this as well sometimes but Gargano is far better at it due to his speed and agility.

28 Aug 12, 10:39
You guys ain't seen nothing yet. Once he gets comfortable with the tea, we will see a lot more of his passing and dribbling. Players like him make you feel that the team is more than 11 players, maybe 12 or 13.

The midfielder continued by talking about the relationship between Inter and his homeland: "Inter are one of the most popular teams in Uruguay. I'm immensely proud to be wearing this shirt and it's a big thing for me to be able to represent Uruguay in Italian football. Recoba? We spent a bit of time together on holiday in Miami. He was always one of my idols. Him and Ruben Sosa."

Impressive debut, indeed. He looks intelligent on the pitch and does handle well pressure.

We needed this kind of quick midfielder who can not only maintain posession, but also recover it!
I'm sure that his TREBLE lungs will quickly make him a fan-favourite :challenge:

He will definitely be blamed for his performance against Roma. But still, I'm glad to have him (but not Cambiasso) to sit in the hole. He's just so, so fast. Him pushing around is better than Cambiasso pointing his finger and waving his hands every 5 seconds.

We're shit lucky to have Gargano man.

junior55
02 Sep 12, 21:19
Actually you have to look closer to his performance. He makes great forward runs , some good interceptions while pressing high , some great long passes and this create the idea of a good performance but he was absent in the first 2 goals we took tonight.

Florenzi got free in the area in the 1st goal , and it was the dm that is supposed to mark him . In the 2nd goal and in general really Totti was alwasy free to put through balls . When totti was playing in the middle gargano gave him too much freedom. He used to try to press high and left acres of spaces behind .

This 2 components of the game are smth that Dm needs to do , and like it or not Cambiasso does them very well.

CafeCordoba
02 Sep 12, 21:24
But IMO Gargano is not most effective as DM. I mean he can play there too but he leaves too much space between the lines. Roma had a field day today in the midfield. Gargano seriously needs to look a bit where he's running at if he's being played as DM. Obi can probably make his life easier since Pereira isn't a midfielder accustomed of covering space in the middle and Cambiasso is just slow.

Otherway around Cambi/Mudi as DM and Gargano running everywhere as LCM sounds better.

Inter7
03 Sep 12, 00:31
completely disagree with most of you guys i love cambi but there was no way against this fast pace roma he would have done anything gargano was everywhere the first goal i blame on silvestre who is he marking the air???? totti was class gargano tried to put him off no one wins every challenge but this guy was a work horse

Florenzi got free in the area in the 1st goal , and it was the dm that is supposed to mark him . In the 2nd goal and in general really Totti was alwasy free to put through balls . When totti was playing in the middle gargano gave him too much freedom. He used to try to press high and left acres of spaces behind .

This 2 components of the game are smth that Dm needs to do , and like it or not Cambiasso does them very well.
that is how they play in napoli strama didn't explain to him that inter does not play like napoli. napoli is high pressing team maybe or maybe not strama told him press high

He is not a DM and shouldn't be played as one. He does not have the discipline. Very similar to when Inter play deki or Motta there. Yeah, they can pass better than cuchu in the offensive side of things, but on defensive side, they simply cannot keep their composure and have the discipline to sit there and read the game.

Like it or not, that's what cuchu excels at; discipline and reading the game. May not be great in the tackle but reads the games and makes interceptions.

As cafe said, gargano as LCM or RCM is better imo with Cuchu/Mudingayi as DM.

Devious
03 Sep 12, 11:56
I cant blame Strama for not starting Cambiasso, he obviously needed rest, but going with Gargano outright as a DM was quite a risk in such a crucial match vs a strong attacking team.

I hope he gets a more accurate long sighted rotational system next time. but I believe he is still testing, so no pressure.

04 Sep 12, 19:04
I think the problem in midfield was that Pereira ended up playing as pure left midfielder instead of a LCM and he left us unbalanced at times, I'd like to add Pereira was a beast in his debut game. Gazzetta said that Gargano had the most touches on the ball for us and the most successful passes he seems to be man who starts our play.

In the first half the midfield of Cambiasso, Zanetti and Gargano were doing much better I can't see how anyone can say otherwise, plus Cassano was taking alot of the burden off of the team. Then what does Strama do? Take off Cassano, leaves a fatigued Gargano on the field that ran his heart out for us in the first half. Zanetti went to RB to fix the botched Jonathan selection. Milito was a waste of a sub altho he redeemed himself with the cross to a hard working Naga.

The entire second half synergy of the team was botched by one man, and that was Strama.

when he sub in, he play as RCM with guarin as LCM and cambi as DMF
and capitano filled that RWB/RW role,,
its much better and solve our problem, when zanetti play as RCM sometimes he played to wide on flank
and gargano do the job much better than capitano as RCM,,
after cambi left, he played more as DMF with gaby as RCM and guarin as LCM

the crucial point is,, i think strama learn one thing today
he put cambi as pure DMF and doesnt allowed him to move forward
and like torino match, it gives our backline more balanced than before

Gargano is a very likable player but I hope Strama and co. are seeing that he is not a long term solution.

Although he doesn't crumble under heavy pressure/can pass a bit/can protect our D a bit/can run with the ball a bit+plays every game like it's his last he doesn't do anything of that at an elite level. It' basically means you lose on both offense and defense when you play Gargano since he isn't an elite defensive DM and also can not control games well enough in terms of build up play.

Us not getting Mascherano was pretty huge in a bad way since he does pretty much everything better than Gargano and I feel we would be getting even more from Cambiasso if he was playing next to Mascherano. The thing with Cambiasso getting older is that we will absolutely need an elite DM while still craving for getting another more creative and offensively capable CM. I personally don't see an elite DM being available anytime soon for us so we are pretty much stuck with choosing out of those box to box Paulinho/Guarin types.

So realistically, we can probably get a better version of Guarin in terms of protecting our defense and controling the game. Prime Stanković would fit like a glove to this team atm.

All this being said, Gargano is a fucking warrior. That sequence against Marchisio in the second half was fucking epic.

Gargano should never be played as a lone DM.

DM's primary role is staying in position and reading the game, but Gargano has neither ability.
Quoting Edgar Davids, "It's not about hard work and getting back; it's about when you get back."
And I've seen countless times our defense losing shape and therefore being exposed
when Gargano mistimes his run at our opponent w the ball.

Regardless of the quality of the team's CBs,
they should be protected and have minimum exposure- most of the times, with the help from a DM-throughout the game.
In that sense, Gargano isn't the player suited for the job, especially when we have JJ and Silvestre combination in the center.

Gargano's tireless running should occur away from our goal as much as possible, preferably in our opponent's half,
not right in front of our d-line where more discipline is required.

That is why I always scratch my head whenever I see Gargano behind Cuchu in the line up.
It just makes sense the other way around to me. On Strama playing Cuchu a more forward role, I see the idea behind it.
However, it simply seems to have more minuses than pluses, especially when we play 3 forwards.

Gargano the DM behind Cuchu? someone please challenge, but it's a no, no for me.
(Unless it's being done as a counter measure against a certain team or a player)
Seems like Mudingayi is the only one who can pull it off at our current side.

Exactly. Being our pure DM, we lack the passing in our deep midfield. Gargano is very unreliable passer and his touch to the ball is questionable also. He's too much of a headless chicken type of midfielder to be any kind of commanding figure (i.e. deep lying playmaker or last line of midfield defence) in our midfield.

I'm not totally sure if we should acquire him at the end of the season, AT THIS POINT. He has plenty of time to develop during this season but on the other hand he's not in a phase in his career anymore where you typically develop your playing style or develop as a player.

I'm not sure about him either. But for the price we're going to pay for him I'll take him any day.

14 Nov 12, 20:23
He still hasn't settled in the team yet. His understanding with his teammates is far from perfect.

No one expects from him to be the main creative force, even though his passing isn't bad at all. He lacks the vision to create. His first tocuh sucks and has always sucked, but when he gets the ball, he can open great counter with it, can run at full speed while keeping the ball close at his feet.

Not to mention his fighting spirit everyone sees. He does TONS of invisible work. TONS of it. Even tho you are right, he can't play as sole DM, but along with DM in 2 men midfield, or in 3, he would be perfect.

THat's why even in August when Cambi was in shit form, I said that Guarin and Gargano CAN'T play as the two in 4-2-3-1, since everyone assumed we will play that. They both lack tactical discipline to do so, and need more defenisve minded, tactically well aware DM next to them.

For everything below 10, it's a MUST buy. Since he IS below 10, i won't hesitate to get him.

Would be stupid not to keep him.

Get a proper DM behind him, and place him next to in form Guarin plus one other good midfielder like Paulinho and we'd be set.

We won't find another hard working midfielder like him again. Let's be honest. Only reason he perceives to give the ball away so much is because he gets the ball so often and when he does get it none of the other dickheads in our midfield make any runs for him or create any position...so basically he gets bumrushed and blitzed. If we have other hard working midfielders who actually run into space to create more space, he would have more time on the ball.

Oh damn if Gargano could only pass at least a bit better, he would be much more useful player. Now he's a total liability when he's on the ball. No one can predict what the fuck is going to happen next. He can honestly pass the ball 2 meters wide from target standing 3 meters from him.

He started really strong for us but as the season has progressed, he has been going down, hard.

Still don't know whether this guy has certain qualities and if so, what they are.

His qualities are stamina, speed and pressuring. He can pressure the opponents really well and he can recover from bad position really fast. But his ball skills suck. They suck like hell and IMO we can't afford to have such a player in our starting lineup in such a role Gargano is.

Would be good as a defensive sub. Not really starting material though. At least not with this current Inter.

Again, his passing is not the problem, his VISION is. The guy missplaces many passe because his vision is poor, often doesn't see around him and passes to the opposition when under pressure.

He's like Attila, when he decide to go to war in the midfield, he kills both allies and ennemies.

Well, okay. Better said, his vision and decisionmaking leads to horrible passes time to time. He just can't see what will happen in the next second when he's about to make the decision to pass the ball. I'm not expecting Cassano-like vision but a normal one where you can at least pass the ball confidently to a teammate. Now it's like very third ball from Gargano and it's a semi-poor, poor or horrible pass.

That's better :D His passing is decent, IF he manages to see open player. I still remember how he used to open counters at Napoli with great long passes, something he still hasn't done at Inter. Maybe it's the teamplay or something, dunno.

Still, it would be stupid not to buy him for those 5 mils. We won't find better player for that money.

This. We can't expect to be a world class team with Gargano as anything more than a bench player we use for extra reinforcement. I'm fine with buying him since he's so cheap, but we need a real DM and real deep lying playmaker. He is neither and therefore limits us.

-------Guarin
Fernando - Sahin

Now that's a balanced midfield. This is most likely out of the question for us as both would be expensive, however that's the idea. Odds are we end up with something more like this.

Guarin - Paulinho
---Cambiasso

Still lacks creativity, but it's an improvement in dynamism and possession.

Agreed. He has a huge motor that will be useful for us in a few years when Cambiasso starts to fade.

I'm split on Gargano, you can't say he doesn't make an effort for the team, he runs so much and fights for possession but his passing is a liability at times, well we do need another midfielder I think Gargano could be a good squad player.

It's called poor passing syndrome.

Pandev got it, Cambiasso got it, Muntari got it, and now it's Gargano's turn getting it. Heck, we can buy Xabi Alonso, and he'd end up like Muntari in our team.

OK his lack of passing skills are not something new but am I being too suspicious that he looked way too timid
and didn't really go all out for the 50/50 balls that he would normally do yesterday?
There were number of times when he stopped chasing the man and kind of just disappeared out of the play or let the man go past him with too much ease.

Setting these aside, he looked pretty much isolated in terms of fitting into our overall tactics yesterday.
AS probably wanted him to be more patient against Napoli but still... a questionable performance from him.

And someone mentions muntari... but so far, I regard the Ghanaian higher than Gargano.

Gargano is very good all around. He keeps running, pressing, and is usually at the right place at the right time. He also makes good runs forward occasionally.



Unfortunately, everything he does is useless since as soon as he wins the ball he gives it back to opposition.

The problem is, that he can't play the role, he's given in our midfield. He is always the one, who has up to 5-6 contacts building up a play. In my opinion he is only strong (on high level) if he give the Ball away on short passes of about 5m, to next man. And his next stephas to be ricght back to avoid counter. We see what comes out if he tries to pay Mottastyle. Theres nobody behind him and we directly get the 1:0 after another ball losen by him. This is even more obvious in our play, if Cuchu ist playing center back, like in udine. For me, Cuchu is more defensiv-coordinator then allrounder, then deep playmaker. But he is safe in his passing skills, something Gargano isn't at all. Like the mistake in first half, when he played a 15m pass to opposition on 11 o'clock, instead of choosing the 5m ball on 10 o'clock, which was safe.

So Gargano in no way is a Allrounder, and for sure not on a high level. But he can play a good part in midfield, if he gets strict describtion on his role, which is only defensiv, like his strenghts are. This makes the offensiv of three liing on the shoulders of two (Cuchu, Guarin), but is way better then falling behind like yesterday. And since we get another Motta/ Redondo type of player, i like the safe option way more, than see Gargano trying to play sth he can't. And by the way he never did. Same problems at Napoli.

By the way, finally registrated, so Forza Inter.

nice to see you popped your cherry. now the real fun starts.

Anyhoo, I think Gargano's passing has improved, but still not a replacement for a proper regista.
