Great. I hope he is given all the chances he needs, if he has a less than stellar first season don't panic people.

Also for so much crap I've given the management if the 6m for half is true then they deserve kudos. Its less than Destro went for last season I believe.

I don't really understand people's rationale on this. Surely Belfodil's season last year was more impressive because he was firstly forced to play with Amauri, and secondly most of his time was spent on the wing

Belfodil looked a little bit more developed in his all round game. However, that may just be down to the fact Belfodil is a year older (important at this age) and has already had some Serie A experience with Bologna. Icardi looks a class finisher though. I'm hoping to see more of his all round game now that he's signed to a better team.

Welcome Mauro! :star: Good luck and I HOPE YOU STAY & WIN MANY MANY YEARS @ INTER!


Welcome, son! Again I think number 9 would be a big pressure, but let's see how he does.
Naaah, you have to take in consideration the lad`s mentality. He was born under a very lucky constelation, his calmness in front of the goal makes it look easy. He wanted #9 and he's not scared to show off his skills. I believe he is destined for success and he knows it. Actually, his zodiacal sign is all about exhibition - just like his fashionable side (clothes, accessories, modeling, cat walk, etc.). I could perhaps draw a psychological profile report, but I think you all get the idea - boy has confidence, sometimes more than enough (we/he should only worry about sitters, because when he concentrates, he's lethal).

http://24.media.tumblr.com/8701dfa55c6f29f02cdb6311cc842229/tumblr_mg7oyvs84X1qfabydo1_400.jpg

He is a true natural, and he reminds me of Ronaldo (~1998) - and I have to mention that I was never a big fan of Ronaldo (!!!) - unlike many current INTER fans, he was not the reason why I chose these colours.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_B1JtfOpd85I/SSfhhyOU7hI/AAAAAAAAGDs/RPf_oPWbkPU/s400/mauro+icardi+barcelona.jpg
Another coincidence is that they both had spells at Barcelona before landing here, which is obviously a good sign.

http://static.liputan6.com/201301/mauro_icardi_130131gib.jpg
He has that "lazy hand" position - like someone mentioned in the Belfodil thread, that means exceptional SKILL :D


Super excited to see this guy in our colors! Good luck :)
Me too man, me too! I am very optimistic about this and ultra-confident he will be world class. Very good deal by our club if the reported figures are true.

My only hope is that we will be able to keep him until he wins us some important trophies - I am sure it's only a matter of time until big money offers will start to come in for him - and we all know our financial situation.

Hasan

Realy? Only because he had Barca's shirt before ours? This kind a excpectations making me angry, Ronaldo in that age had one golden ball and over 100 goals for Cruzeiro, PSV and Barca.

Icardi have 11 senior goals so far ... he's talented? Very talented but if we get Milito calibar there for couple years we will be super happy.

Hope you succeed here.

And its just abhorrent to hear such big name comparisons like Ronaldo (????) and Batistuta for a 19 year old; this is why players here often flop from the pressure, and we should just give him time to settle in.

He seems to be a top talent, considering he netted more than 10 goals in his first season in Serie A.

espnfc article:

"In ancient Greek literature, the myth of Icarus tells the story of a boy who failed to listen to his father’s advice about flying too close to the sun with his wings made of feathers and wax. His story ends in disaster when he defies his father and the wax melts and he falls to his death. The myth of Icarus is meant to show an example of failed ambition.



Claudio Villa/Getty Images
Mauro Icardi has swapped his Sampdoria kit for one at Inter, where he will wear No. 9 this coming season.
In this new-dawning era for Inter, they too have a youngster who is full of the ambition to aim as high as possible. Mauro Icardi is ready to take up the challenge of playing for a club of Inter's heritage and I hope that unlike Icarus, Icardi will listen to the advice given him and prove high-flying ambition can lead to greatness for both himself as a player and his new club, FC Internazionale.

"I’m happy to have arrived here. I hope to do my best for the team and the fans. I can’t wait to start the new season." These were the 20-year-old’s first words on the Inter website following the club’s announcement of securing 50 percent of the exciting striker's card from Sampdoria, despite increasing interest from some of Europe’s Champions League-qualifying clubs.

It was a gentlemen’s agreement between Inter president Massimo Moratti and Sampdoria supremo Riccardo Garrone that ensured the Nerazzurri signed one of Serie A’s hottest prospects. But the Argentine himself has stated a desire to play alongside legendary compatriots such as Diego Milito, Esteban Cambiasso and Javier Zanetti.

-Moratti: Inter can win Scudetto
-Andreolli happy to be back at Inter

Ever since the rumors of this transfer began, it was considered Icardi would become the apprentice of Milito, whose vast experience will enable the youngster to grow as a player and perfect his trade ready to replace the treble-winning legend as the club's hit man in front of goal.

The pressure of replacing such a potent striker such as Milito is a challenge in itself, but Icardi has also stated his desire to wear the iconic number 9 worn by some of the best strikers in the history of football, Ronaldo and Samuel Eto’o to name just two. This will make Icardi the youngest Inter player to be awarded the important number 9, but I believe he will do the honor justice, just as I'm sure Mateo Kovacic will do wearing number 10.

Why am I so sure Icardi will succeed as Inter’s frontman? Despite his age, Icardi has already proved to be deadly in front of goal at every team he has ever played for. He started playing when he was just 5, and in 2002 the Spanish side Union Deportiva Vecindario signed him to their youth team, where he played six years while scoring a fantastic 384 goals.

It was this eye for goal that attracted the attention of his next destination, Barcelona, where he played in the Blaugrana youth team with a certain Lionel Messi. In two seasons with the Catalan club, he added nearly 40 more goals to his total.

In January 2011 he made his move to Italy -- where his father's family is from -- on loan to Serie B side Sampdoria’s Primavera team, where he carried on his tradition by scoring 13 goals in 19 appearances. This goal rate saw Sampdoria make the move permanent in July 2011 for a bargain price of just 400,000 euros.

In 2011-12, Icardi became the top scorer of the youth league, which earned him his professional debut against Juve Stabia in the Italian second division. Ten minutes after taking the pitch, he scored his first professional goal and secured the win that took Sampdoria to the promotion play-offs.

Last season, he became a regular fixture for newly promoted Sampdoria team and bagged a reasonable 11 goals in 33 appearances, not a bad return for his debut season in the top flight. The tally included a brace at Juventus in a 2-1 upset of the league champions, and another when the Bianconeri traveled to Genova later in the season.

The three goals Icardi scored on Juventus' goalkeeper Gigi Buffon in 2012-13 instantly endeared him to Inter fans, who have struggled to consistently score against their bitter rivals since the days of Julio Cruz -- even Milito has only scored two goals against them. Hopefully this is a tradition Icardi can continue in his new Nerazzurri colours.

Icardi is a clinical finisher, with outstanding off-the-ball movement and an eye for finding dangerous spaces, which will make him an important part of Walter Mazzarri's counterattacking Inter, but he isn't known for his creative abilities. I don't see this being a problem as I imagine his role will be similar to Milito's, where he will rely on the likes of Ishak Belfodil, Rodrigo Palacio and Kovacic to supply him the ball while he concentrates on spearheading Mazzarri's formation.

I have high hopes for Icardi; for me, he is the most exciting young striker the club have purchased since a 21-year-old Ronaldo was pictured alongside Sandro Mazzola signing with the Nerazzurri from Barcelona. Of course, Icardi can’t be compared to 'il Fenomeno' as their styles are completely different. In my opinion, Icardi will become a player more in the mould of the Fiorentina legend and ex-Inter striker Gabriel Batistuta.

I know they are huge boots to fill, but I truly believe Messi's good friend Icardi can become a top striker like 'Batigol'. I just hope he can rewrite the Icarus myth for himself, and his own high-flying ambition won’t see him fail. Instead, it should allow him to become a part of the legendary Inter story for many years to come."

Nero Indigo
11 Jul 13, 10:00
:lol: That article gets progressively ridiculous as you read through :palm:.

Also, Why!? Someone tell me why on Earth are they even bringing the great Batistuta into this!? Batistuta had superb offensive awareness, was great in the air, had a CANNON on both legs, and strong on the ball. A strong finisher in everyway! So far, from what I've seen of Icardi - he has solid offensive awareness and is a good finisher, he is lacking in the other departments (but can hopefully develop over time.) If anything, he is more in the mould of Milito from what I have seen. So WHERE are the R9 and Batistuta similarities coming from!!!??? Ridiculous hype theories to gather more victims to read their column piece or whatever. Either that or some clowns just need to wake up!!

You just hope for the best with signings like Icardi and Belfodil; that they improve and don't crumble from the pressure of being in a big club. Hope they live up to their potential, hope their fighting spirit and mentality is strong, and hope they're able to execute. All this talk is freaking premature, these stupid pundits should stop with the extra pressure, it's just disgusting. Let the boys finish a season without this first before it can be entertained.

EDIT: Also Dario - I knew you were crazy like that but the amount of effort you put into that welcome package sold me. I won't forget this! but you know, in the end, there can ONLY be one WALLACE :lol:

Wallace

This is disgusting.

I post for the likes of Schelotto, Guarin, Rocchi out of good faith and respect for their passion and diligent work for the team.

But you, Dario, are simply a troll.

We are on different levels, and putting me in the same sentence as him is a down right derogatory treatment towards a young, simple, innocent, and pure hearted fan like me.

And plus, Icardi doesnt deserve this, he hasn't even stepped on the pitch yet.

I don't put too much stock in friendlies and this guy is without a doubt talented, but he really needs to be more active and get involved in the play, even if he isn't getting a ton of service from our crap midfield.

Nero Indigo
08 Aug 13, 15:41
Not saying that Icardi doesn't, but I was saying that the comparison to someone who cares about his hair more than goals is wrong when using Ronaldo as a yard stick: that is inaccurate because Ronaldo bangs in a lot of goals and takes care of his hair.

Not saying that Icardi doesn't, but I was saying that the comparison to someone who cares about his hair more than goals is wrong when using Ronaldo as a yard stick: that is inaccurate because Ronaldo bangs in a lot of goals and takes care of his hair.

I want to confess my love and excitement about this guy without sounding gay, and without my post being moved to the adults only thread.

But to put it briefly, he showed a real hunger to be wearing the shirt and his header that hit the crossbar was brilliant. Definitely could go down as one of the best players Inter will have in the next 10 years, if we're lucky enough to keep him that long.

Icardi is a more counter attacking forward. If you look at his 10 goals last season, they were almost all on the counter attack.

I think he'll play better against stronger teams, who we'll counterattack, than weaker teams, who'll park the bus, and he'll be limited to headers.

His pace and movement are his key attributes.

I just wish the rest of the team mates would trust him more with the ball and pass to him.

So desperate to reach page 9, so here's the French Toast recipe


Ingredients:

4 eggs
1 teaspoon sugar, optional
dash salt
1 cup milk
10 to 12 slices white bread
butter
maple syrup or other syrup
Preparation:

Break eggs into a wide, shallow bowl or pie plate; beat lightly with a fork. Stir in sugar, salt, and milk.
Over medium-low heat, heat griddle or skillet coated with a thin layer of butter or margarine.

Place the bread slices, one at a time, into the bowl or plate, letting slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Soak/coat only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time.

Transfer bread slices to griddle or skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Serve French toast hot with butter and syrup.
Recipe for French toast serves 4.

Wait... Overall better but not more complete, sounds like a contradiction to me.

How can you be overall better if you are not better in the majority of attributes? You are just saying Icardi has the nose for goals, but that's just one attribute of a striker out of many.

It's pretty logical, both are strikers. By overall I mean as a player, and Icardi is potentially a better player than Belfodiil, even if he's not as complete as the Algerian. Belfodil is good in almost all areas, while Icardi is great in a couple of ones and thus a better player (potentially).

It's not really logical up to this point until you explain it better.

I don't really know what you're trying to define here with the term 'player'. I simply don't think one can be called a better player if he's only better in a specific area of the game.

He can score more with his attributes, but the things he provide to the team isn't really as broad as someone like Belfodil.

What I'm getting at here is, having a nose for goal isn't everything to the game of strikers.

In fact, I find the term 'better player' even more undefined than the term 'better striker'. The term 'player' really applies for every position on the field.

Icardi's got cold blood. Natural finisher and now he's doing it at the highest level. As long as we keep presenting chances he will be just fine. Belfodil may be more well rounded but Mauro's just got that killer instinct. One chance = one goal. If Belfodil can display the same type of clinical finishing we are in business.

Wallace
15 Sep 13, 23:28
The question is can we always provide him with such chance.

We should look to using Belfodil as a creative force being part of the build up play rather than being a poacher. That fits in more to his set of skills.

as mazzari said, he is still not ready to start he doesn't have the energy, mazzari has played him like a fuckin mastermind, he tires the defenses with alvarez and palacio who move A LOT , than subs in Icardi when they are at their lowest and it all gives results

wambam
16 Sep 13, 15:07
Starting Icardi would ruin his impact, imo. He's a pretty easy player to defend against if you're ready for it, he doesn't try to pull players out of position, he doesn't even really try to get open, he just stands near the last defender and hopes that the ball gets to him.

Now, when the other team has spent all game defending against Palacio (who pretty much always drifts from flank to flank), the shock of Icardi right up in their faces is what unsettles their defence. He's a great supersub, but he never looks good when he starts.

His movement is something that Mazzarri will have to work on with him. I'm not worried though he's only 20 and out and out strikers can be slow developers. We got to remember he's probably 3-4 years away from the player we want him to be. No reason not to keep the faith though.

The 20-year-old joined the Nerazzurri from Sampdoria in the summer and opened his account with a goal in the 1-1 draw with Juventus on Saturday.

“I’m really happy for Mauro,” representative Abian Morano told FC Inter News. “I really believe in his potential and I’m certain that he will be the best attacker on the planet.

“He is still very young and he’ll continue to grow with time. The goal on Saturday was important for Inter, but also for Mauro’s development.”

Icardi held the necessary paperwork to play for Italy, but he’s opted to wait for an international call from Argentina – the country of his birth.

“The Seleccion? Mauro right now is 100 per cent focused on Inter and is not thinking of anything else.”
Told you right from the beginning. I have also voted 10 :)

Ok, if his agent said so, then we are going to win every game from now on. I'm glad, we struck gold!

Really hope he can become great for us.

Judging by his celebration, I get the feeling he's a pretty cocky guy. That is good though, he didn't seem nervous at all that it was a big game.

Ego isn't a bad thing especially for a striker. Sir Alex spoke about it recently, ego stems from pride and that stems from wanting to win and be the best. Therefore those people are more times than not willing to do what it takes to be great.

I feel he'll end up by a Julio Cruz level player.Not just because he likes scoring against Juve, but because of his skill-set. He seems to have good composure infront of goal and makes good runs, but otherwise I'm not seeing too much that makes him a special player.

Of course there is nothing wrong with being a Julio Cruz level player.

I read he almost signed for us when he was 17, according to Bronzetti.

Also, Motta said he'll play for us soon or later. I think he'll retire in Barcelona tbh...

Actually he expressed desire to retire at Newell's Old Boys, so he might play there his final season.

Can never see Messi playing elsewhere. It's too easy to score goals in Spain. And playing with Barca, there's a 50% chance you're gonna win La Liga.

A piss poor performance. He couldn't reach the ball at before the goal. All delivery were wasted because he couldn't touch and hit the ball. He was slow as fuck when he chased that Gagliari RB. Yes, he scored a goal but we need a player that could do much more than that. He needs to learn from Milito before he becomes a Pazzini. The best thing about Milito is that he's shadowed by defenders yet he still manages to sneak and find a space to position himself to score a goal. If the pitch wasn't bad, he would have hit that last ball easily. Milito movement in the game drags defender out of position allowing his team mates to penetrate. Plus, Milito can dribble his ball and even give some assist. HE used to run wide to pull out defender then strike in.

Icardi from today's game is still a million yards away from Milito.

You know Mazzari probably instructed him to stick close to the centerbacks and occupy them, to serve as a focal point of attack. We already had Belfodil moving all around the pitch, that was the reason we weren't scoring. Maybe Icardi wasn't moving all around, because he wasn't instructed to do so?

Actually Milito's movement is pretty poor. Look at Icardi's goal against Rube. He runs left, and goes to the blind side of the defender, and accelerates right in a zigzag before cutting behind defender and scoring.

I've never seen Milito do any of that. When we played with Leonardo, Milito dropped in form severely, simply because he was bad in tight spaces, as we played possession football, and opponents sat back.

Milito used to drift to the left, yes. And Palacio would go in the center. But just because you're a CF who drifts to the side of the field 90% of the game, it doesn't give you better movement.

Milito goal vs Chelsea - CL 2010.
Milito 2nd goal vs Bayern - CL 2010.
Milito goal vs Milan - 2011/12

Watch this and this is how a striker should play. Control, Positioning, Movement off ball. Look how many times Milito waited outside the penalty area then rush in to poach. That's how a striker should play. Icardi has not shown anything like this. He hit the cross bar once, score a brilliant goal vs Juve, and a simple head in vs Cagliari. But, tbh that was all he has done. He has not attempted shots over shots against opponent goalie. A great striker must create his own chance, not by dribbling around defenders but to free himself and to hit at the right moment. Icardi has not impressed me on this part. I see he has got powerful shot, good accuracy, but he is easily surrounded and killed by defenders. He is kinda waiting for the right moment to score. In fact, I said before that his goal vs Juventus was similar to Milito and that's how he should keep learning and playing.

I can't say if he is asked to wait inside penalty box by Mazzarri but as I remember Cavani played in Napoli more like Milito than Pazzini. Icardi is currently playing more like Pazzini than Milito. If he is gonna be a great player then he must learn how to be Milito, not Pazzini.

Yeah, he scored against Rube, and a simply goal against Cagliari. So what? It's his first month, and he hasn't started a single game yet, and gotten 2 goals from scrap minutes. That's nothing.

Those goals show nothing on Milito's movement. Look at Icardi's zigzag run against Rube and tell me that's like Pazzini. When have you seen Pazzini or even Milito for that matter, toy with Rube's defence like that? The only thing Milito has on Icardi is that he can hold the ball hold up, and bring in players. Icardi has better mentality, movement, finishing, and heading.

For today's game, Mazzari instructed him to stick down the middle and occupy the center backs. When a CF occupies the centerbacks, the CBs don't step up and it's easier for your team to build up play. It's not because of his lack of movement. It's a tactical decision, since we already had a forward moving around (Belfodil). We needed a point of reference.

That's why before it becomes his habits, he needs to improve, get more skills set.

Nothing on Milito's movement? :lol: whatever man. That zigzag run you mention is because Alvarez made a movement to pass it wide, so he needed to run wide to pick up the ball while he was already running inside. That is what made it 'zigzag' run. He would be really stupid if he didn't run wide for Alvarez pass. Milito did a lot of those pick up runs either inside or wide. That's why I said during the game that icardi's goal is similar to Milito. If you watch Milito's goal galore, then you know what I meant. Anyway, those movement that Icardi need to improve. I watched some his goals in Sampdoria and he has that skills and I want to see that skills improved and applied with us asap and as much as he can. Icardi has better mentality? When he scores for us in 3 finals then we'll speak about mentality.

Icardi has better movement? It is evident he has the basic skills but to claim he is better, no. definitely no.

Icardi has better finishing? This is yet to be proven. How many goals did Icardi score last season? 10? I doubt 10 goals that Icardi has scored is a proof he is a better finisher.

I agree though he is a better header than Milito, but Milito's killer instinct is undoubtedly brilliant.

Having said that, I hope that Icardi could grow to be as good as Milito or even better, but he needs to improve his skills, he seems very limited atm.

I don't know how you know what Mazzarri told him, but anyway, then Mazzarri made a tactical mistake. Having Icardi inside the penalty box will cramp the box with 2-3 players, creating difficulties for other players to penetrate. Point of reference? For what? He couldn't even moved because he was shadowed by 2 players all the time. Only until Palacio came in he started to free up. And that simple tap in came also from his little movement inside the box to free up himself from the defender and waited Naga's cross. That's how a striker would score lots of goals. He finds the goals himself.

1 thing though.. I think he is fat. He looks heavy while running.

Mauro does look very heavy when running.... no way he could be fat though. Mazzarri wouldn't allow it, certainly not from a 20 year old. He wouldn't be getting any minutes if he weren't in good enough shape, as we've seen with Kovacic and Belfodil. I think he's just a heavier body type that previously expected. I also think he may be hitting the gym in attempts to be able to withstand the physical battle. Something about him reminds me of Osvaldo, but with less tricks and more clinical.

30 Sep 13, 01:08
if you have a player who can score a goal every 2 games, no one gives a fuck about his movement or anything, as long as he can score.

we are crying out for a clinical striker, and while icardi is developing into that role, Im happy with what hes done so far (except for that when he scores, we dont win)

30 Sep 13, 03:24
Yes, because Gilardino, Pazzini, Vieri, and Inzagi like players who do nothing, but score will win you titles...

Actually, for the most part they don't. Especially if they don't have world class attacking players around them

I actually agree and thought that he was asked to play in the middle of the box, with little mobility, simply because the pitch was God awful and we should be throwing long balls directly to Cagliari's penalty area.
