For the first time in over two years, Zhang senior will fly to Europe specifically for Inter.

According to reports, he will meet the new coach and be next to him (along with his son) tomorrow at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium for the Champions League final.

I guess they kind of want to show him off. Which also explains why the announcement was given at 6 a.m. Italian time: more or less lunch time in China.

No I get get it completely. At first it wasn’t and I’m still struggling little bit...but I’m getting over it slowly..the fact that Oriali is coming back is making it easier to swallow this....also, can’t deny the fact that he’s a winner coach, and the best we’ve had after Mou, who if you asked me, would have been the best to hire. But, think about it, after Mou, Conte is best available and also, I see this as a positive signal from Sunning. You know, they must have promised him a good project, which Conte said at Gazzeta today, “the project and the clarity of the management...”, to me that’s saying, we’re getting serious now about getting back where we belong.
That’s the positive spin I see on this. Makes it’s easier ;)

You’re fooling yourself if you don’t think he’s prepared himself for that.

His answer is going to be that he’s not here to talk about the past/Juve, the only scudetti he’s worried about are the ones he’s going to do all he can to win for Inter.

This, and Marrotta, we've literally sold our souls and made a deal with the Devils themselves.

"A new chapter in my life is beginning, I'm really excited," commented Antonio Conte, Inter's new Coach. "Through my work, I'll try to repay all of the trust that the President and directors have placed in me. I have chosen Inter because of the Club it is, because of the project's sound basis and how ambitious it is. Because of Inter's history. I was struck by the Club's transparency and the desire to bring Inter back to where it belongs."

31 May 19, 07:18
So, it is official. Not excited at all for various reasons coz I am still not sure if he is the right coach for us. That being said, Inter needs someone who can gel with the team and at the same time be strict as well. It is good not be very hopeful, so if he proves my initial verdict wrong, I would be glad. Now, I hope that our transfers will be a good one and most importantly on time.

Looking at the options we had, "may be" he is the right coach. Let's see !! Looking forward to next season but we badly need to get the Mercato right !!

Welcome, though not really excited about this. Yet, if there’s anything I know about this hire, is that Conte will throw a fit if he doesn’t get the players he wants. Which puts pressure on Suning more than ever. Paying him so much and then giving him a Vecino level player ain’t going to cut it this time. Also, how safe will he be when he goes away to Juve? :lol: scared for this dude. Best of luck.

I'm slightly concerned about the change of playing style. I hoped that we hire a coach who could continue on what we already have; 4 man defense, possession style of play.

I need one last attempt at reflecting and grasping the magnitude and audacity of Marotta's gamble (or his heresy, from a certain point of view), so I can stomach Antonio Conte as the new Inter coach. I'll push it to the extreme limits, make it or break it:

“Well, there could be worse things than hiring Conte as our coach. For example, hiring Moggi as general director.
Wait, that's what Moratti was tempted to do in his naivety back in the day, after meeting Moggi and using him as consultant for quite a while during Lucky Luciano's time at Juventus (from reliable sources), but it didn't happen in the end. And then Calciopoli happened, thankfully.”

Moggi's soul was killed (quoting his hilarious words), but hopefully our new coach still has one.
It's too soon to tell, despite that first shot of his eyes from the nice presentation video, but let's be optimistic.
I wish Andonio Gonde the best in his complicated "path of redemption", that goes by itself.

And the biggest “Forza Inter” to legitimate this message.

I think many have unrealistic expectations about Conte. He is a good coach but no magician. He needs time, a lot of support and many new players to achieve his targets.
Wish him good luck.

Potential catastrophe in the making. If Perisic has dreamed of EPL for few years, I don't want to keep such player. To me it seemed they made a pact in January that he will act professionally and try to get us to CL and then he will get his transfer. Of course a lot depends on the demand of Perisic's services.

If he stays, I really hope in that case Conte has turned his head regarding EPL and the position! Because Perisic's position needs to be LWB, no pure offensive positions for this guy anymore. I would hate to see Perisic being our LW (in 3-4-3) yet again.

I have my reservations about changing the playing style completely with every coaching change. But apart from that one big issue, Conte is a very competent coach and I hope he does exceedingly well. Conte is someone who can hit the road running, so if we give him some quality players, he can cut the gap significantly vs Juve.

With a new coach at Juve, maybe they will wobble this season. We need to be ready to take advantage. Forza Inter!! And even if it feels a bit weird to say this, Forza Conte!!

if perisic is 100% in the project, then i'm ok with this. i can understand why a coach who plays 3-5-2 wants to keep someone like perisic, who runs for 90+ minutes, helps in defense and provides a decent number of goals and assists.

but he must be 100% in it, no shit like not being in the photos of the team, asking to be sold near the end of january and so on.

The reactions of fans from both sides (Inter & Juventus) are funny though. Some Juventini are shitting their pants, going salty vengeful as fuck, and in a complete denial mode.

Some Interisti go full over dramatic elitists. "Oh his zebra blood is a disgrace to our holy pride! Fuck him, NOT MY COACH! Inter is ruined! The club has no dignity anymore! This is just like Hitler switching sides to join the Jews fighting against the Nazis!"

Statement from the Curva Nord:

Statement by Inter Ultras on Antonio Conte (translated)

[Source in Italian](http://www.fcinter1908.it/primo-piano/inter-la-nord-conte-rispetti-la-storia-non-siamo-la-juve-si-affidi-a-zanetti-e-oriali-perche/)

&#x200B;

The Curva Nord, after the official announcement of Conte as the new coach of Inter, through its Facebook page has issued a statement in which it specifies: "We are not Juve". These are the words of the fans of the second green ring:

&#x200B;

"Announced the arrival of the new coach, we point out firmly and decisively that the Curva Nord can certainly not forget his bianconero and judicial past. As the guarantors we are and will always be, we accept the fact that from certain "judicial suspicions" the new coach has freed himself by expiating the sentences that have affected him, even though the "guilt" for the long militancy in a club from which we consider ourselves light years away in style and values remains indelible. Needless to say, we are very concerned about the choice of a person with Stellini's past in the technical staff, but although we are aware of the technical contribution that Conte's undeniable professional qualities can provide to Inter's future development, our concern is above all about the moral aspect that we would like to see demonstrated in the future".

&#x200B;

\-WE ARE NOT THE JUVE. FOR US WINNING IS NOT THE ONLY THING THAT COUNTS!!!

&#x200B;

Inter, new slogan for Conte "Being interista means winning with respect for the opponent, accepting defeat, verdicts and not looking for alibis. Our message and wish is therefore that Mr. Conte and with him also Marotta, rely on Lele Oriali and Zanetti and soon assimilate the spirit of brotherhood that lies at the heart of being Inter and that has nothing to do with sports results. You can win and you can lose but the dignity must never be lost; the hysteria and the bianconeri frustrations must be buried in Turin. We are Inter and we always walk with our heads held high.

Hopefully he will succeed and improve our game from what it has been in the past few years. We already have made a slight improvement under Spalletti but that wasn't good enough therefore Conte has a lot of work to do. I'm not going any further, other than wishing him best of luck.

It looks (or we are deceiving ourselves) like Both Marotta and Conte came to Inter to prove rube were wrong to kick them out and we win trophies

On the other hand it maybe that Marotta came to destabilize Inter's dressing room just to make sure summer overhaul is needed, makes way for Icardi to get signed by rube, hires Conte under maximum wages. Conte comes to Inter and does some shit related with match fixing then we get busted and sent to serie B :lol:

I have my reservations about changing the playing style completely with every coaching change. But apart from that one big issue, Conte is a very competent coach and I hope he does exceedingly well. Conte is someone who can hit the road running, so if we give him some quality players, he can cut the gap significantly vs Juve.

With a new coach at Juve, maybe they will wobble this season. We need to be ready to take advantage. Forza Inter!! And even if it feels a bit weird to say this, Forza Conte!!


PS: Any clown here who talks about sacking Conte in the next 1-2 years shall face my wrath! :megusta: Now I am off to photoshop some images of Conte in an Inter shirt to post at various Rube forums.



OK, I'm not talking about firing Conte in 1-2 years, I'm hoping we fire him before the season starts.


Just out of curiosity, what would you guys consider success with Conte at the helm, because some people started claiming that Spalletti barely reaching CL spots, playing like crap and never really improving over time was a success while in my view he was a complete failure.

I'll say the bare minimum I would expect from Conte is 85 points next season and the Scudetto the one after, anything else would be a failure in my eyes.

And not it's not because I consider him capable of achieving that, but that's what I would expect from a top coach, and our management and many people here consider him at that level, plus certainly he's getting paid like that.

CafeCordoba
31 May 19, 12:14
Scudetto is a bit of a reach as a requirement, the financial gap is still quite massive between Inter and Juve. But surely the requirement should be to at least contest with the Scudetto for real. I mean that if we fail to win Scudetto in 2021, it shouldn't mean automatic sack for Conte, no matter how the season has gone.

But obviously the goals should be much higher now since we gave Conte a big payday and apparently he's gonna get a considerable war chest for the summer.

I am very uneasy with this guy. I understand that he is a professional and he won a lot of stuff during the last few years. But most of his success came at Juventus , was one of their legend player and so on. He might be successfully at us but his history will haunt him to the last day at Inter. I don't want to think what would happen if this guy lose a few successful matches like Spalletti did during the last 2 years. It will be a complete shit storm.
Not to mention that he has a different playing style than this team had in the last few years. Not sure how most current players fit in his play style. My realistic expectations are that Conte will at least stop giving us heart attack for top 4 in the next years.

Hi guys, long time no see. But this news wake me up from a long sleep. :) I am more than happy to see Conte as a new coach. I wish him all the best and I really hope he will maintain his level of energy and wake up the sleeping giant.

Couple word about predictions and expectations...First of all, Juve will not be the same without Allegri, they will most definitely have less points next season. Second Napoli will be contender this year, that is for sure so with couple of brave moves in the market, good pre-season, injury less season we can be there, right at the mix. I predict tough Scudetto battle between the three clubs and almost sure top 3 finish with Conte at helm. With little bit of luck maybe at least one trophy!

like Piccolo or Vegeta in Dragonball?

I was thinking of Star Wars reverse mode. Skywalker from Dark to Light Side... anyway, juBentini seem pissed AF, they issued a petition to have his star removed from Gobbi`s Hall of Fame.

My biggest concern is the potential disruption we are about to face, once again.

I think we could have gone the way Lucky Luciano > Sarri > Pep/Klopp for posession and beautiful football. Honestly, I think juBentus are still 2 steps ahead of us for daring to move to this, as they need to up their game in Europe. This, while we are stuck chasing juBentus from who knows which season?...

As pointed out by Materazzi_23 and others in his previous thread, the team trained for 2 years to play in a certain way and now Conte might shuffle it all with his 3-5-2/3-4-3. If he is so smart, I expect him to surprise us. Even at Chelsea he trained his system for about 6 months before deploying it! He did not switch at once, from the beginning.

So he could actually start playing 4-2-3-1 until the squad learns his new ways. The biggest surprise would be for him to come up with something new, but that`s unlikely, as he must believe in his own system. Let`s see if that will still work against Sarri & Ancelotti ;)

However, this new tactical system can have huge benefits from my point of view: players will actually LEARN something new and you expect players of this level to be capable to adapt, right? So we are not toothless against parked bus sides, so we don`t look hopeless no more, so we are not stuck in the same formation forever. Luciano had no plan B, I prefer us to have plan B & C learned by heart.

Let the summer torture begin!

Yeah, agree. I am very curious to see what exactly would be his "system". Does he plan to play with 3 at the back, or maybe to adopt his all time favourite 4-4-2 transforming to attacking 4-2-4?!

We are all inpatient, but I hope he will soon make his valuation of the squad and then decide what would be his preferred system and philosophy.

Personally, I would like to see his offensive 4-2-4 here. We will see...

Welcome to the club that will make you lose your hair once again.:interscarf:

For some inexplicable reason (I was six at the time) I still remember the petty quarrel he and Materazzi (the two, incidentally, share the same birthplace) had over the Italian squad call-ups for the 2002 WC. In particular, I remember Matrix teasing Conte about his balding head and inviting him to do something about it. Well, the glorious hair piece that Conte flaunts so proudly nowadays demonstrates at least that he is willing to listen to (good?) advice. Jokes aside, Zanetti often hangs around the Pinetina, and soon Oriali will join the staff as well. These two can certainly tell him a thing or two about Inter's chaotic environment, which Trapattoni (Conte's mentor at juve) used to call "la centrifuga" (= the spin-dryer). His professional choices have more than proved that he certainly doesn't lack confidence, but Inter is no ordinary (#notforeveryone) club and he better brace himself for a bumpy ride.

On a tactical standpoint, his teams don't play the brand of football that I like the most, but at the end of the day, tactics are a mean to achieve a goal and not the goal itself. I expect him to have Inter play with intensity, urgency, tactical discipline and purpose. Most of all, I expect the team to improve under him, both in terms of performance and results, in contrast to this season's stagnation. As for the board, I expect them to live up to little Zhang's words and to improve the roster accordingly.

You are implying that the curva would have liked to prevent Conte's appointment. What I take from their statement is more like a "we know you are a rubentino, and we are Inter, so behave yourself" message. It doesn't seem like they are against the appointment itself.

Well, first of all, welcome. I don't think we should be as much pissed at it as jube fans. They are going bonkers for now, so I kinda smile at it to see how enraged they are. Sure it would be great if he wasn't associated with jube, but I don't buy the conspiracy theories.

Thirdly, what matters the most is the Inter, and how Inter will fair with him at the helm, so I'm way more interested in this. And if you look at opinions of jube fans, they are quiet worried about him at Inter. Why? Because they know how great of a coach is, everybody is. How he transformed mediocre jube side to win Serie A, how he turned worst Italy squad for a long time now into one that can compete against the best, and how he won EPL against managers like Guardiola, Pochetino, Mourinho and Klopp. If nobody is amazed at that, then I'm lost for words.

Fans complain at the way he left his former clubs. But the funny thing? It's not the fans of his former teams. That's the most interesting part. The most fans of jube and chelsea at the time were supporting him in his demands, and were as angry as he was. To me, this is a clear sign of the winning mentality and to not screw with this guy. You expect your employee to deliver? Then you must keep your end of the deal as well. You want a guy like Ancellotti who will sit quiet even though his employer is screwing you over? Fine, then get someone like him or Sarri because they are ok with it upfront.

The best part about Conte is that he is amazing tactician. To me he can compete with Guardiola in this department, easily. The other great part is that he is a winner, and professional and he along with Marotta will finally separate the children at this club from real men. I think the era of Moratti under whom players had enormous say at the club is finally over and thank God for that. You all saw what happened with icardi when he (and his wife) realised their immunity time is over. So many years I was waiting for that.

BTW, many people already spoke doom and gloom when icardi "show" started that Marotta just fucked over our chances to get 4th. Well, apparently that didn't happen and we made it (barelly, but did). And you know what? Even though we will lose a lot with icardi, we will gain many times more from now on, because boy it does send signals to all other players that they either act correctly, or you're next. So consequences, that's what I expect now from Marotta and Conte. So excited about it.

As to expectations, depends a lot on the transfer window, but personally I like to give the coach a 1,5 to 2 years to evaluate what he's worth, and for Spalletti that hit the mark perfectly as it was around 1,5 when he had this psv game and it was for all to see that Spalletti will not lead us to promise land.

I think minimum of 4th place should be good enough of the goal for this year, with scudetto contender for the second year. But that goes along with the progress of the team's play, not in terms of points in first season, but gameplay. You can be unlucky for a while, but not forever and as long as we'll be playing good football, we'll get results eventually. To summarize, I just expect a level up in terms of coaching, so man management, squad selection, substitutions and reactions during the match and approach towards game. Winning approach that is.

I think you'll all be suprised. Conte is great coach and he proved it by winning. He will do better than Spalletti at Inter, I'm sure of it.

Impressed by the level of attention this is getting. Hopefully it continues positively.

Did you read the Gazzetta article? This was the plan. One of the big factors in picking Conte was to broaden our international presence. They are actually talking about Inter on ESPN in the United States...they wouldn't normally give two shits about Inter unless they were commentating a match on their ESPN+ streaming service. BBC, beIN, all these networks want interviews. Now they are bringing him to Madrid to show him off at the Champions League final.

It is all part of the plan.

There's lots of reason a coach might fail...especially at Inter. But their past, in my opinion, is not a reason they might fail.
Mou didnt fail at Man U cuz of his past with Chelsea, did he? Gasperini didnt fail at Inter cuz of his Juve past, did he? etc etc

the host says: "people want to know who you will coach next season. so we prepared this game", where he holds cards, each with a different club's name.

conte says that the most important thing to him is that a club has an important project, so the host discards the first card and says: "we can immediately rule out this one", then adds, to reassure conte: "it's only between you and me, nobody else will see (the names of the teams)".

they later discard another two teams cause the position is already filled with good coaches, then the host adds: "and you already told us the food is not good there" (so i guess those were either teams from uk or germany lol, but that's my assumption).

then conte gets to discard those clubs where he wouldn't go, and picks two (one of which the host considered as a likely employer for conte).

then the host: "no, not here, please", and discards that (they both agree there already is a project there, although they didn't look too convinced of that).

with only three remaining, the host is torn between "heart and reason" (he's an interista, so one of the three cards must have been Inter).

finally, conte confirms that the final three cards were close to his own thoughts.

We can indeed wonder since when “Conte to Inter” was really set and done (for quite a while, we can assume).

Weeks ago, while we were stumbling in a depressing race for a CL spot, Juventus probably started an early campaign of destabilization through the media: “Conte is still waiting for his old team, he's begging to come back but Agnelli doesn't want him, Inter will be Antonio's second choice and fall-back”.
Until, one day, “Conte to Juventus - done deal” suddenly became breaking news.

With “suspect” timing, the guru of calciomercato Gianluca Di Marzio* was the one to immediately deny those rumours and claim that Inter were still ahead of everyone to get him, and nothing had really changed.

And we probably started our own early “Operation Sympathy” for Conte back in April, when he made that appearance as a guest in the JimmyFallon-esque tv program of Alessandro Cattelan: the “game of cards” about his future, but also the way Conte was portrayed, Antonio's nice words about Mourinho and il Triplete...

Cattelan is not only a famous interista and “the nice guy” for a young target, but he's both a point of reference and part of a certain generation, those who grew up during the 90s and can't forget what Conte represented back then. The feedback was positive as expected, based on social media.

And here comes the card revelation, an official and funny “angle” involving the club and the president himself, that adds to the package of presentation videos/interviews already recorded for the media worldwide (BBC and so on).

From a communication point of view (starting with the Social Media House production), regardless of how this Conte epochal gamble turns out, we must admit Suning is taking things to an all new level.

Will Oriali be his assistant, or he'll have another role?

Not quite - Oriali was at Inter in the pre-"triplete" era and basically acted as a sort of glue between the players and the club, a role that cannot be filled by the coach himself (especially since Conte will have his work cut out for him from the get-go - he is tasked with turning a bunch of losers into a respectable team in a matter of months). I expect Oriali to resume his past duties. But I don't see him getting involved in decisions regarding who plays, what formation/tactics to adopt, etc. That will be Conte's job.

Not just any journalist. Di Marzio has been one of the most prominent Serie A journalists for many many years. He already has relationships and trust built up with everyone at that table. There is plenty of mutual respect and professional courtesy. He knows how far he can push and when to excuse himself. He has a reputation to uphold.

It is still a bit funny to see, though.

For the new poll

There should be a 3rd option that says depends on transfers

With our current roster we aren’t better or anywhere near Napoli or Juve

Taking out Icardi and bringing in Dzeko we are still not as good as Roma or Milan. Maybe not even as good as Lazio roster.

I am not going to mention Atalanta because if Zapata doesn’t have the year he had last year they are a midtable club.

But the guys we are linked to which makes me feel like we want to be the LA galaxy of Italy by being Roma’s retirement home

Giaccherini: 'Conte bleeds you dry'
By Football Italia staff

Emanuele Giaccherini gave an insight into Antonio Conte’s training methods and why he believes they can transform Inter. “He bleeds you dry.”

Conte replaced Luciano Spalletti this week with his return to Serie A after the Italy job and Chelsea.

“When I read Conte was coming to Inter, I thought they’ve found the right person to take them back to the top,” former Juventus winger Giaccherini told the Corriere dello Sport.

“It’s not that Spalletti didn’t do well, seeing as he achieved the results that were asked of him over two years, but Conte is a winner who lifted trophies both in Italy and abroad. He can bring a winning mentality to those who haven’t found it yet.

“I can testify with confidence that Conte’s training sessions are shocking. I experienced them both at Juve and on international duty, especially when preparing for the Euros, and I can assure you in the afternoon I just wanted to collapse on to a couch and watch TV.

“Conte bleeds you dry, because it’s the work on the training ground that he builds his success on. His watchwords are culture of hard work, sacrifice, hunger and fighting spirit.

“Juve remain the favourites for the Scudetto and Inter might not manage to bridge the gap straight away, but they will be one of the favourites with Conte in charge.”

It's not something unheard of. It's quite typical actually. It's just quite rare to capture pictures of them chatting in public.

I wish I was as optimistic as you. Too bad I think that Inter is far from winning Scudetto, at least it doesn't look so. We need improve mentally because as a team we are so fragile and we are lacking what it takes to win trophies, then we lack quality and the rumours of transfer moves aren't even exciting and so on.

Giaccherini: 'Conte bleeds you dry'
By Football Italia staff

Emanuele Giaccherini gave an insight into Antonio Conte’s training methods and why he believes they can transform Inter. “He bleeds you dry.”

Conte replaced Luciano Spalletti this week with his return to Serie A after the Italy job and Chelsea.

“When I read Conte was coming to Inter, I thought they’ve found the right person to take them back to the top,” former Juventus winger Giaccherini told the Corriere dello Sport.

“It’s not that Spalletti didn’t do well, seeing as he achieved the results that were asked of him over two years, but Conte is a winner who lifted trophies both in Italy and abroad. He can bring a winning mentality to those who haven’t found it yet.

“I can testify with confidence that Conte’s training sessions are shocking. I experienced them both at Juve and on international duty, especially when preparing for the Euros, and I can assure you in the afternoon I just wanted to collapse on to a couch and watch TV.

“Conte bleeds you dry, because it’s the work on the training ground that he builds his success on. His watchwords are culture of hard work, sacrifice, hunger and fighting spirit.

“Juve remain the favourites for the Scudetto and Inter might not manage to bridge the gap straight away, but they will be one of the favourites with Conte in charge.”

At least we won't have to worry about Lukaku being overweight for very long.

I wish I was as optimistic as you. Too bad I think that Inter is far from winning Scudetto, at least it doesn't look so. We need improve mentally because as a team we are so fragile and we are lacking what it takes to win trophies, then we lack quality and the rumours of transfer moves aren't even exciting and so on.

He said maybe not this season. For me it's definitely not this season but the season after that we should have a really good shot at it and I would not be surprised at all if we won it.

Sure, the transfers don't look super exciting but as long as Conte is getting players that suit his system and the way he wants to play we'll improve immensely over these past two seasons. I'm guessing either second or very comfortable third.Maybe fight for the coppa.
After that season is over we could buy star players and make a real push for the Scudetto.

Right now, a couple of things stand out for me regarding Conte's appointment. The first relates to courtesy and respect. Conte emphasising the importance of courtesy and respect was music to my ears and what has been so badly lacking at Inter: professional courtesy and respect. When I look back to last season and think about the way Icardi, Perisic, and Naingollan conducted themselves, I feel ashamed. Playing for Inter should be an honour and the players should conduct themselves accordingly. Courtesy and respect for the club's management, the coach, his decisions, fellow players, and the fans were all lacking by the players named and I think it is great that Conte will not in any way budge or be flexible on that.

The other thought I have is in relation to training methods. Conte is renowned for being very strict and his training sessions are apparently very demanding. That is exactly what this team needs. In the past, there have been too many players that have been playing half arsed because they know their place in the team is guaranteed as there is no direct replacement in the squad to take their place. It sounds as though no player under Conte will be able to take his position as a starter for granted and there will be no going through the motions. Our players are going to have work hard and with intensity, elements that have been sadly lacking in their game.

Back in March, a Mate I have that supports Manchester United actually asked me "Who's coaching Inter right now?" "Spalletti". "Really I didn't know that". The same Mate said over the weekend said that Conte is a serious manager and knows what he is doing. Another friend said (also a Manchester United supporter) after Conte was announced that Inter might actually win something now. Just hearing someone say that out aloud made me smile. Honestly, I am marveling at the difference in perceptions from having a coach that was at best, a top four finisher to having a coach with a renowned reputation.

Lastly, for Conte to have agreed to come to Inter, assurances would have been made by management regarding transfers. The fact that the likes of Valero, and Mario are being linked with moves away from the club is a good sign. They do not feature in Conte's plans and are already being linked with moves away from the club. That is exactly what I wanted to hear and is cause for optimism. I am not thinking about Scudetti or winning the Champions League but with the right backing by Suning, our fortunes could well and truly change for the better. The truth be told, I am even ready to settle for a development in the way we play football rather than the shit shows that we have been subjected to for the last two years and the numerous years before that. Anything else would be a bonus.

I know tribal footy is a bad source but they say a few Spanish teams want him. Let him leave for free get his wages off our books. Just don’t replace him with some trash player from Roma

Seriously I hate Roma more then Juve and Man United. Seeing us openly trying to raid their whole team for everyone but Zanilo feels like we are openly trying to get Herpes to kamikaze our own team. Did did hire a Juve ceo and coach

Giaccherini: 'Conte bleeds you dry'
By Football Italia staff

“Conte bleeds you dry, because it’s the work on the training ground that he builds his success on. His watchwords are culture of hard work, sacrifice, hunger and fighting spirit"

That is something that Conte brings and Inter sorely need. One of my pet peeves is lack of urgency and desire by players on the pitch. Which is one of the reasons I dislike players like Joao Mario more than most. If anyone can cure this, its Conte. He seems to hate lazy players with a passion, I have a feeling such players will either be sold or benched.

Conte shows more urgency & work rate from the sidelines than Joao Mario does on the pitch!

It's exactly that Euro 2016 celebration that made me like Conte as a manager. I'm a massive fan of the Mourinho/Klopp/Conte animated touchline style, particularly in rejoicing when winning or scoring.

Plus it's good for the memes: "Yellow for Thiago Motta, he'll be disqualified" " SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII" :lol:

Inter Players Set For Strict Training Regime Under New Boss Conte

Antonio Conte is expected to impose strict rules on his new Inter players when he begins preseason training in July, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Conte was officially unveiled as Luciano Spalletti’s replacement on Friday and attended the Champions League final in Madrid alongside the club’s management, before returning to Milan yesterday.

The Italian has been recruited by the Nerazzurri to win trophies and he will leave no stone unturned in his quest to restore Inter to their former glories, with Gazzetta describing his approach as ‘full metal Conte’.

Conte will stress the importance of the group over the individual, telling players ‘anyone who thinks in terms of ‘I’ can go home’, making it unlikely Mauro Icardi will stay at the club given his selfish conduct last season.

He will increase the intensity of Inter’s training sessions, with Giorgio Chiellini’s comments during his spell at Juventus – ‘you’re not tired after a Conte training session, you’re dead’ – providing a taster of what is to come.

Conte will introduce tighter regulations on what Inter’s players are allowed to eat at Appiano Gentile, having banned pizza and soft drinks during his spell at Chelsea, as well as asking them to cut down the time they spend on social media.

And he will request maximum respect for the Inter shirt at all times, reminding players of their responsibilities on a regular basis.

There will be no bonus for qualifying for the Champions League in the contract signed by Antonio Conte according to the Corriere dello Sport. And the reason is very simple: from now on, playing in the Champions League is an obligation.

However, there will be “rich rewards linked to winning the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia as well as doing well in the Champions League (from second round and forward) or in the Europa League if in case the group is eliminated in the Champions League group stage.”


Is there any information about coaching staff? Who will be assistant, Alessio or somebody else?

I think he will try to convince Alessio because he was so important to him in both Juve and Chelsea...
In place of Angelo Alessio, Cristian Stellini will be Conte’s deputy as both have already worked together at Siena and Juventus. His brother Gianluca and Paolo Vanoli as technical assistants. There is going to be match analyst and trainer Julio Tous who has been next to Conte since 2011. A nutritionist is also very important to Conte and so Tiberio Ancora, a magician of sports diet, will occupy this role.

How is a journalist allowed so close to a company brass lunch?!! Now I know why things leak so much at Inter, and now I know what journalist has the inside scoop on everything inter related!!!! Smh
Press will be out there anyway, why not use it in your strategy? Prepare the moves by leaking certain information to them [Conte hard pill to swallow but if you release it 2 month in advance people have time to get used to the idea], or pull smokescreens a la Sabatini, or release names with fake targets just to lower the transfer fee of the actual target. juBentus are of course on a different level, they are doing this to manipulate stock market shares in their favour by linking themselves in the financial press to Pep to inflate stock prices before announcement.


Is Conte the right coach for Inter?

“I hope that the club will achieve great results because it is the dream of all of us Interisti. And I hope that Conte can win their hearts: it will not be easy because the past cannot be forgotten or erased. It is up to him to win everyone’s trust.” - Marco Materazzi


“As an Interista, I want him to have a great season. He is a great coach and will bring his mentality to this club. And I hope that he can have a great season.” - Diego Milito


CdS: Roberto Gagliardini is not going anywhere now that Antonio Conte is sitting on the bench of Inter. :slick:

The former coach of Chelsea really likes the Italian midfielder who just had the best year in his career scoring wise with five goals in Serie A. It is safe to say that Gagliardini will not be part of Chiesa deal as it’s been rumored in recent weeks. :fuckyea:


Before stepping on the pitch for an organized football match by UEFA, Dejan Stankovic talks about the current events of the past few days which saw Inter letting go of Spalletti and replacing him with Conte.


“I’m not here to judge, I don’t work for Inter but I am first a fan. I have black and blue heart and a club can do right and also wrong things. We are talking about two great coaches here, one that hit the target of going to the Champions League. Sinisa once told me that ‘the world of coaches is divided between those who have been sacked and those who will be sacked.’ Conte is a coach of highest level.” - Deki

“Conte? He was the best coach that I had in my playing career.” - Pirlo

Antonio Conte was officially revealed today as the new Inter coach and it didn’t take a long time for Andrea Pirlo to positively recognize the Italian coach: “He did a good job at Chelsea, winning the Premier League and FA Cup. Perhaps he had problems with ownership (Abramovich). If you look at the history of Chelsea over the last 10 years, note that they have changed too many coaches. The problem is not the coach, perhaps it is the club.”

This is what I like about Conte. What I mean is, he doesnt need to act like that as a coach who earns his paycheck. He wont have to scream like that, my throat got hurt just from listening to Conteís screams. Itís painful and he doesnt have to do it, like many coaches. But he does, because he cares for the team and as he said he will be the number 1 fan of whatever club he is coaching. He wants the best and he does the best, his passion is enough motivation for the players to do well.

GdS: Juve fans to Conte in Madrid: "Mercenary"
https://static1.squarespace.com/static/593614a03e00beb2f0d520ad/5936401cb3db2b83532d06b1/5cf3461ee501b80001b62790/1559451648599/60579276_2095500390743632_7736228920271137534_n.jp g?format=500w

Although he is far away from Italy but Antonio Conte still feels the bitterness that Juventus fans have had since his link and appointment as Inter new coach.

Around 6:30 pm local time, when Inter delegation led by Zhang, Conte and Marotta left the Westin Palace hotel in Madrid’s Plaza de Las Cortes to go to the stadium to watch the Champions League final, there was a group of fan waiting for him in front of the hotel entrance chanting: “Juve, Juve, mercenary!”

Soon after, Del Piero appeared and that group of Juve supporters gave him warm greetings.

Alessandro Costacurta sees the return of Antonio Conte to Serie A is not only huge for Italian football but for Inter as well:

“Inter have chosen the best Italian coach who gives aggressiveness and verticality to the way that his team plays. A coach of his caliber returning is a great message for Italian football.”

LOL @ Billy saying that after being trained by Ancelotti for so long...

Luis Figo comments on the appointment of Antonio Conte as Inter coach.

“We all know what life in football is like for a coach, it only depends on the results. But Conte has shown all of his qualities to win at a club. I hope that this Inter chapter for him can be as happy as possible.” - Figo

“I am waiting to see how things are going but I am sure they will be fine because he is a good coach.” - Moratti

Giuseppe Bergomi talks about the new Inter coach Antonio Conte:


“I only think well of Antonio Conte, he is the right man. I am sorry for Luciano Spalletti, he did a good job but if you want to invest in a winner, it seems to be that Conte is the best solution to closer the gap with Juventus.

“In the history of Inter, there was always a good coach at the helm when this club won. Marotta told me that he knew about the economic challenge of this operation but this club wanted to strongly make this bet on Conte.” - Bergomi



In place of Angelo Alessio, Cristian Stellini will be Conte’s deputy as both have already worked together at Siena and Juventus. His brother Gianluca and Paolo Vanoli as technical assistants.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Antonio Conte has chosen Antonio Pintus as head of athletic trainers, the position that is still vacant at Inter.

“Pintus has accepted the Inter coach’s offer who gave it to him in person. Before celebrating this sort of marriage, Real Madrid must give the green light. More than anything else, the decision will have to be taken by Zidane who has created a special feeling with the Sardinian professional. But Pintus wants to return to Italy. Conte’s phone call, with a consequent proposal, has already convinced him and now it is up to Zidane to let him go.”

No, seriously, the takeaway here, at least at this point is, that Suning actually have:


A) Money to spend
Spalletti's golden handshake plus giving the best wage of any coach in the league.

B) Balls
The balls to appoint an ex-juventino scum that they know is the best possible option. Sorry to say but Mourinho wouldn't work back here at this stage.

C) Ambition
Extrapolating from points A and B - they're willing to spend money to get the best talent available, no matter what.

I'll believe this if they put a decent chunk of change into our transfer budget as well. If we're frugal with our transfers then spending all that money on a manager is just bad business.

It would make zero sense for both Suning and Conte to sign up for that. Appointing him is a pretty clear signal... or they totally lost it, all of them.
