I think the Vieri have palyed 2 matches,and he wasnt good enough,but he is still one of the best St. in the world and he still can score a least 30 goals this seasson,so Vieri and Adriano should be our firs choise.I am sure that he will paly better in next games.FORZA INTER

I agree that he could score about even 30 goals in one season but not in partnership with Adriano.He needs to play with support striker.With Adriano he will score about 10 goals.10 goals for 7 mln euro.Nice :yuck:

i really don't understand people who says vieri gave his all for the team he deserve to play bla bla bla

our midfield is working hard to create chances and vieri is wasting them he couldn't score sitters for god sake even pipa inzaghi would score them

poor recoba he plays so little yet people says he is inconsistent
but when it comes to vieri the poor soul is having a drought give me a break :frustrat:

I disagree with you, 2T. I think the majority of the fans here admire Bobo for what he's done in the past for us, he's saved our side many times and has then become one of the world's best strikers for years but there comes a time when one's performance just isn't as good as it used to be. For most Interisti, Vieri isn't the same tritolone that just couldn't stop putting the ball in the back of the net in the 01-02 season. However, one thing I know us Interisti are is we don't favor one player over the other. It's a well known fact that Chino is a very inconsistent player but we acknowledge that he performed when given a chance last season but unfortunately kept getting hit by the injury bug. I'd say we're cursed with Recoba if I didn't know any better, really.

Competition is growing, and as Bobo keeps playing at such a low level he'll be put on asside on the bench in no time. This isn't the issue with me, as I know Mancio will eventually either put Martins or Recoba as Adriano's partner if Tritolone can't get his act together. Sadly, as the days go by I am starting to believe that the great Vieri era might be coming to an end but I still have this little belief in me that he's just going through a rough patch and he'll atleast be able to be a quality striker.

Basically, I just think it's much too early to be calling for Vieri's head and stuff. He's in our line-up based on past performances and because of his name, of course that's not right but what can you do about it? absolutely nothing, zip, nada. As a Vieri fan, I hope he'll score this weekend and gain some respect and praise amongst the Interisti - if he can't score soon enough, he'll be on the bench and I don't think he'll cope with that too well either.

It's great to see Bobo back. It's not just the fact that he's scoring. He looks like a new, regenerated man.

Last year he looked bored, sloppy and the expression on his face was telling us that he didn't give a shit about Inter.

Look at him now. Concentrated, committed. Working hard for the team, coming back to help the midfield and the defence. Celebrating the goals whit real joy.

Welcome back Bobo, we missed you :proud:

well, his trouble scoring certainly gives a new perspective on Vieri, now he realizes that even he can have problems.. :)
and now he seems more of team player than before...

with this, I am optimistic that vieri can reach a better form..

J zanetti
22 Oct 04, 13:36
I dont want to sound too negative or anything. But in all fairness Bobo's performance wasnt anything to brag about. The only difference this time around as that he scored!
Whether his shot was a miss hit or not is open for debate ;)

anyways, im glad he scored and also managed to celebrate :D

It's funny what You say in this moment. All of You during last months were reapiting that Vieri is unuseful any more etc. And now when he scored two goals .. You changed Your opinion with 180 degrees.

22 Oct 04, 14:58
Vieri..Vieri.. Vieri,,

I think its time to think of the matter as business ,if Inter has any intention to offload him then we should put him in the best form cause otherwise we wont get a good deal, the question if we put him in the best form would we still want to offload him??!!!

We are paying this guy a huge salary so it’s a waste of resources to put him on the bench which will make his situation worse, now he scored again in the last 2 games, he said he hit the ball wrongly in Valencia but what matters that he scored. and along Adriano, who is MILAN’s king, Vieri getting back especially to his aerial lethal.

Honestly I don’t care much about the names on the pitch but what I want is an entertaining style with results.

SB9Dragon
22 Oct 04, 20:19
Score or don't score I'd still like to see Vieri shipped out now so that the side can get some cash from his deal. I'm happy that he scored and everything but it's pretty obvious that he is past his best and I seriously can not see him getting any better than he currently is.

Bobo has done a lot for the club and I truly respect that. But we need to look towards the future and perhaps by selling Vieri we could grab Tevez or Morientes (who I still think would be a wonderful partner for Adriano)

I knew it, I was just waiting for someone to make a comment like that.

Nobody's saying things like "Vieri is the best striker in the world again". We're just happy that he scored, and most of all, that his attitude has changed. He's celebrating instead of spitting, and he looks committed and concentrated.

That's all sinisza.

Christian Vieri has been certainly our most important and valuable player for the last six years. I know there are lots of critics, but no one can deny that this guy is already an Inter legend. There is a splendid video clip of all of his Serie A goals for Inter. Here's the link: http://www.inter.it/aas/news/reader?N=17557&L=en#

Watch it and weep, oh those memories..

Yeah, we definitely should pay a tribute to Bobo, he just scored his 100 goal for Inter. The guy went through a very difficult period but he's still there.

I love him and I always will. I guess that the fact that he wasn't celebrating his goals last year, plus all the rumours of him joining gobbi, made me get a bit distant from him.

But Bobo scored such a huge goal against gobbi, right under my eyes, I will never forget that.

Grazie Tritolone, we love you :heart:

The end of Vieri-ano?
Thursday 10 February, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Christian Vieri, whose strike-partner Adriano is today being linked with Chelsea, almost quit Inter in the summer.

The Italian international made the revelation on Thursday during an interview with the Radio Italia Network.

"I did think about leaving," said the forward. "Who wanted me out of the club? That is a long story, I’d need hours to explain."

Many believed that Vieri’s time at Inter was coming to an end after Juventus started transfer talks with the Nerazzurri.

But the move collapsed which resulted in Juve extending the contract of David Trezeguet instead, who was already set for a move to Barcelona.

It’s unclear exactly why or who wanted Vieri to leave the San Siro, but the Azzurri ace has ruled out boss Roberto Mancini. "He was good to me," explained Vieri.

One of the possible reasons behind Bobo’s proposed sale revolved around whether he could co-exist with Adriano – a player very similar to the 31-year-old.

However, it now seems that the Brazilian could be heading out of the door instead at the end of this season.

Reports in Spain today claim that the South American is a realistic target for not only Real Madrid but also Chelsea.

"Adriano wants to stay at Inter but there are some great clubs after him," agent Gilmar Rinaldi told the Marca newspaper.

"The last club to make an enquiry was Chelsea, that was why Roman Abramovich called Massimo Moratti.

"I’ll insist on saying that Adriano is content where he is but we’ll have to see what happens if the clubs we are talking about can convince him otherwise."

Adriano, who recently claimed that he dreams of a Madrid switch, is contracted to the Italian outfit until 2008.

The Count of Anti-Milan
10 Feb 05, 17:36
I posted this on Xtratime...

Well,first of all I must admit I do have a soft spot for Vieri even before he came to play for Lazio. I was over the moon when Cragnotti bought him and devastated when he sold him. Still, we won Lo Scudetto after that so Cragnotti was right :proud: But back to the point...

His numbers speak for him, more then 120 goals for an Inter team that was absolutely attrocious play-wise(long balls, zero creativity, players out of position, right Cuper?) if not always result-wise(right Tardelli, Zac :yuck: ). And that while having to suffer tons of muscle injuries due to over-training, especially during Cuper's reign. In spite of all this he was single-handidly keeping Inter not only on top, but also away from the abyss of mediocricy(sp?). That is not just my opinion, it is a statement of fact.

A lot has been said about him and how his attitude is suspect or how he is a disruptive influence in the locker-room. But I ask, where is proof of this? I am yet to find any statement from any former team-mate or coach of his that speaks badly of him. And don't give me Zaccheronni :yuck: as an example, please! He's a mercenary, looking only for money? True, he is not professing eternal love towards Inter left, right and center. He lets his deeds speak in his stead. Over the past 6 years many a player went looking for grass greener then that in Inter's back yard and many have succedeed in doing so. He stayed, not because Moratti pays him tons of money or because nobody wants him any more, but because he believes in Inter and believes he can win with them.

You may point out some of his statements to the media and how he used to get mad at his team-mates(namely Conceisao and Guly) after schoolboy mistakes they make on the pitch(in all honesty, the two I mentioned deserved worse). I do agree up to a point, he should sometimes pause to think about the consequences of what he says, because obviously he did not do it in the past. But hey, let he who is without sin cast the first stone. I'm sure he regretted many of the things he said and did but true to himself, he was not around the papers and TV stations apologising but let his deeds speak for him. Result: he made peace with the ultras and as of recently curva sings again "Bobogol". And another thing: at least Vieri means what he says and says what he means. In a football world ever more full of falsities, it is a commodity truly precious.

And finally, there is one short story about him that speaks of him as a person. When once asked what he would wish for if he got three wishes from a goldfish Vieri replied:"I'd wish myself good health. The other two wishes I'd give to someone less fortunate then myself." This speaks more of a man then thousands of rash statements or vaffanculos to team-mates.

Zaccheroni is an Interista. He did his duty in a moment of difficulty and made the ultimate sacrifice by stepping aside when he felt he was no longer wanted after we went to see Capello behind his back. His only flaw was Helveg.

And that while having to suffer tons of muscle injuries due to over-training, especially during Cuper's reign.

I enjoyed your article, but this point i couldn't digest. Vieri's injuries are because of either his style or his body. He was alway injured with us, either under Lippi, Tradelli or Cuper. Other players that did the same training didn't miss half his games, you can't blame it on the coaches.

Well, I could write pages and pages about Vieri. I can say how much I used to love him and how much I wished we'd release him. I got alot of mixed emotions on him, i'll express them with a poem :D :

Against Verona it all started,
and 100 goals later, you are still here

You seem to go, but then you stay
again and again, year after year

You are hard and we misunderstand
you are always far, even if you are near

We miss it when you score and tell them
'Shut up!' or put your hand to your ear

Bobo, We're sorry, no, we are not
let's just enjoy it while you are hear

But know that when the day comes
we'll say farewell with a tear

Vieri is always prone to injury. Let's just hope he's better than Beckham though.

Vieri Turns Into A Detective…
3/16/2005 4:24:00 PM
…But only for a television commercial for a renowned car model.
Christian Vieri will interpret the role of Starsky (from the famous 70s show ‘Starsky and Hutch’) in a commercial for the new Peugeot 206.

The Inter striker-turned-‘actor’ will try to catch all the thieves who are stealing the footballs. For this commercial, Vieri has changed his look as he will be seen with a moustache and sideburns in typical 70s style.

For the Italian international player, this will be his 4th television commercial and might continue on this path even after he retires from his main job.

================================================== =============

I'm just picturing that look...

Vieri Turns Into A Detective…
3/16/2005 4:24:00 PM
…But only for a television commercial for a renowned car model.
Christian Vieri will interpret the role of Starsky (from the famous 70s show ‘Starsky and Hutch’) in a commercial for the new Peugeot 206.

The Inter striker-turned-‘actor’ will try to catch all the thieves who are stealing the footballs. For this commercial, Vieri has changed his look as he will be seen with a moustache and sideburns in typical 70s style.

For the Italian international player, this will be his 4th television commercial and might continue on this path even after he retires from his main job.

================================================== =============

I'm just picturing that look...


We need to get him out of the club as soon as possible. Its obvious that he is not interested in playing anymore. I don't want another expensive sub like Recoba warming up the bench.

I said that last year after those "I wish I got paid the same for cricket so I'd quit soccer" comments, however, I think he's different this year.

I don't agree that this kind of activity will distract him. A lot of soccer players do commercials, what I don't like is his shared business with Maldini. But that's his own business, it's just the way I think.

Vieri can't be put in the same category as recoba..

Veri has proven to be the next after adriano - martins..
selling vieri right now is madness.... He is still a very good striker and it's like selling canna to juve.. he made the new team very strong...

recoba , on the other hand, has too many injuries that prevents him showing his best football here..

Vieri can reach his peak here, but recoba can't...
they're not the same.

anyway vieri has alot to give still and if inter get rid of him it will be a big mistake One of the biggest but hey i have seen worse from moratti and his crew so i dont know what to expect i hope he stays cuz he is a hell of a player an he could help develop and teach what he knows to the other strikers with all his expierence

I move your post here Los Hamedos...

But if Vieri is sold, there won't be clashes with you and it'd be boring. Hell, keep Vieri.
You might be right and i liked those debates as well. It´s fun to have good debates occasionally.

I feel passionate about Inter, but sadly i dont feel as passionate towards any other current Inter player as i do with Vieri. Sure players like Cordoba, J. Zanetti are great to have around, but i dont know. To me they lack the kind of character Vieri has and i love his character. He´s kinda guy that you either love him or you hate him. There´s not many fans out there who feel neutral about him. I love Cordoba´s attitude/devotion though. *Cough* He should be our captain! *cough*.

Some "new" players i´m fond of also are Martins and Cambiasso. Whatever we do, we should keep those four...five if Vieri stays. I used to like Emre quite much, but after his comments....it´s sayonara Emre! We should use few young players (Potenza and Marino) and they might become my favourites as well. Still, if Vieri leaves, then he will be deeply missed and he leaves huge void to my Inter heart.

Anyway, i dont even know what i´m talking about. Guess i´m too tired (3.13 am here).

I get your point Don T, Vieri has a charisma that no other player in our team has. It's kind of hard to explain, I don't know whether it's the flamboyance or what, it's just his style.

I often say this, but I will never forget when he joined us. The buzz was on, and then that hattrick against Verona :proud: . I had tears in my eyes when I saw it again in that 100 goals compilation at inter.it. Those were the days man... :cry2:

And Don T, great to have one more member in the "Cordoba for Captain" secret society. :scared: He is the next charismatic figure in our team, please don't misunderstand me people, I love JZ to death, but there are something he lacks.

Vieri was the main reason that I became an Inter fan. Not because he was banging in goals in Serie A. But it was because he was banging in goals for me in WE, when it was still in PS1. Seriously. :dielaugh:

I hope Vieri can stay in Inter, for at least another season. I still believe he has something in him that can help Inter. Be it on, or off the pitch. He can be Martins's mentor. :D

16 Apr 05, 04:04
I became an Inter fan when Matthaus was in the team, but after he left I turned into a Man Utd fan for a couple years. Then there was Ronaldo who made me an Interista again. When Ronaldo left, it's Bobo who keeps me at Inter.

So personally I would like to have Bobo remained in the team. I actually don't think Martins is better than him. True, Martins has speed...but I think he lacks the finishing that Bobo and Adriano have.

I hope Bobo can regain his top form soon. I believe Bobo and Adriano can play together and they are the most intimidating partners in Serie A

16 Apr 05, 11:35
first i'll present myself ... im from Kosova ... and i love INTER the most ... for Bobo ... i think he's getting old ... he has no speed ... i think Inter should change him with another striker ... like Makinwa or ... but if Inter want a player with same characteristics with Vieri ... Inter should take Ferrnando Tores from Athletico Madrid ... i like this man ... when he shots with head ... 99% it's goal ... Martins is better than him now :D ... even Recoba ... because they have the speed ...

KOSOVA IN THE HOUSE, HOLLA. . .

Vieri is the shi* man, he might have lacked form in the recent couple of games but seeing him go really would be like selling cannavaro, in any tactic he can fit in even if some people say that Adriano and Vieri cannot co-exist(you all saw how that was disproved this season) the point is that he is one of the main images of inter and one of the main goalsorers over the last few years(until Adriano came) i mean hell he's lasted and fit in at inter more than n e other club and he outlasted ronaldo... besides he's one of the reasons i liked inter in the first place and his presence has influenced a lot of ppl... having said that , i think what we do need is somebody like Kaka that can drop back and help with a 4-3-1-2 formation, let's face it our wingers haven't done much this season even though we have amazing heading ability(even when they have been succesful, they havn't shown consistency) so i say either we get a free-role distribuiter of the Ronaldinho/Kaka/Zizou kind of style , which we could get from Recoba(on his good days, and if he's not on the bench) or we need two good, young wingers like Cristiano Ronaldo or something of the fast technical type. That will help out the attack (even though thats no what we've lacked this season)

Good post IP! I agree that it would b a mistake to sell Vieri, he still has goals in him and hopefully he will stay.

It is true that our wingers have not been consistant, but they haven't always had many chances. I think there is more to come from players like VDM, just depends if Mancini wants to use them.

Vieri's World Cup aim
by Nadia Carminati - created on 19 May 2005
------------------------------------------------------

Internazionale striker Christian Vieri is desperate to perform well next season in order to play in the World Cup.

Vieri has struggled with injuries this term and has not been able to play a full part in Inter's season.

However, the powerful Italian marksman returned to action with great effect as his double secured Inter's place in the Coppa Italia final after beating Cagliari.

Vieri now wants to stay injury-free next season in order to ensure he is part of Marcelo Lippi's Italy squad for the remainder of their World Cup qualifiers.

"Now I feel good and should Lippi call me I'm happy because I'm really keen on the national team," said Vieri.

"I want to play in the World Cup and the only way to reach it is by playing a big season next year."

Vieri has recently been linked with a surprise move to city rivals Milan, but he calmed the situation by insisting he will be at Inter next season.

"Let's not talk about these things," said Vieri. "Unless some strange things happen, I'll stay here."

Vieri's current contract expires next summer and the fact Inter have not yet opened discussions on a fresh contract have led to speculation about his departure.

[Skysports]
-------------------------------

I really hope I will be able to see Vieri don the Azzurri jersey again and watch him play in the World Cup 2006. He is still a very good striker despite his age, and will undoubtedly be of great help to the Italia NT. Imagine Vieri-Gilardino in the WC. Or maybe even Vieri-Cassano.

Handoyo
20 May 05, 16:30
If he is called up for next year's World Cup, he will have the chance to shatter the 9 World Cup goals scored by any Italian, a record which he himself held, alongside legends like Roberto Baggio. I think Luigi Riva also holds the record. Nonetheless, I am quite sure that neither manage to do it in just 2 World Cup, like Bobo!

Along with Christian Vieri, 2 other Italians have scored 9 gols in World Cup tournaments and they are Roberto Baggio and Paolo Rossi.

Paolo Rossi scored his 9 gols in the space of 2 World Cups as well - he finished the 1982 World Cup tournament as top scorer with 5 gols.

Anyway, if Vieri scores just 1 more gol, he will be amongst legends.. but he already is one anyway. ;)

MoH, do these stats again, but instead of comparing total goals, compare goals against 'big' teams. If Vieri isn't last in that category, I will do anything!

Are you sure? It's not going to be pretty :angel: (Allah ye'nik ;) )

Starting from 1995 and onwards, I’m going to count their entire Serie A careers, including their previous clubs (It won’t be fair for Adriano, seeing as he’s only been here for two years…Three if you can’t his brief spell, but I don’t)

Starting from 1995 and onwards, I’m going to count their entire Serie A careers, including their previous clubs (It won’t be fair for Adriano, seeing as he’s only been here for two years…Three if you can’t his brief spell, but I don’t)

Vieri– 14 Goals (1995-1996 and then 1998-2005) By the way, I just realized something, Vieri has continuously scored against Roma each season since joining the Nerazzuri, and regretfully he wasn’t unleashed against them this season!

Inter – 0
Roma – 8
Juve – 4
Milan 2

I fact checked those stats and you actually had missed some goals. :)

I counted Vieri´s Serie A stats only. Bolded parts are the teams he played with...

Against Roma = 10 goals

10/09/1995 Roma - Atalanta 0-1 Vieri
16/03/1997 Juventus - Roma 3-0 Vieri x 2
11/04/1999 Roma - Lazio 3-1 Vieri
30/01/2000 Inter - Roma 2-1 Vieri
04/03/2001 Roma - Inter 3-2 Vieri x 2
24/03/2002 Inter - Roma 3-1 Vieri
06-04-2003 Inter - Roma 3-3 Vieri
07-03-2004 Roma - Inter 4-1 Vieri

Against Juventus = 4 goals

14-04-2001 Juventus - Inter 3-1 Vieri
19-10-2002 Inter - Juventus 1-1 Vieri
04-04-2004 Inter - Juventus 3-2 Vieri
28.10-2004 Inter - Juventus 2-2 Vieri

Against Milan = 3 goals

06/04/1997 Milan - Juventus 1-6 Vieri x 2
03-03-2002 Milan - Inter 0-1 Vieri

Not awesome, but not bad either...

Only one season at Juve [when he was young prospect and got limited playing time] he scored two against Roma and two against Milan [and won the Scudetto and European SuperCup btw]. If he had stayed there i bet he would´ve scored many many goals more against the better teams.

Look dude, Vieri was italys highest scorer both in worldcup 98 and 2002, how can u sat something abt like this abt a living legend. Every where i go, people r saying he had a horrible season!!. Since when does 13 goals in 27 apperances become horrible???????, espacially considering the fact that he was brought on as a substitue in 8 of these games, 13 goals in 1831 minutes, that is 140 min per goal, which is perfectly reasonable, maybe not high class. how can we ever forget the great comeback which vieri led us to against juve, when he came on as a sub, and in just 24 mins, changed the whole game. And as for ur point, that he dosent work against the big team, that is pure rubbish, Scuedetto is not won on performing agaisnt the big teams, There r 20 teams in it and performance against each one is important in winning the league. This guy is a living legend, Inter would have been nowhere if it hadnt been for this guy, true we didnt win anything with him, But all along we were always known as mighty Powers, all b/c if him, i really really hope he dosent leave, he deserves the starts ahead of martins, or rather y cant mancini go with 3 forwards??. As for his transfer to Milan, i just dont think that is possible, eventhough i think they may give a starting place alongside sheva, ahead of zaghi and crespo(if he is still there). A month ago i heared rumors abt him being transferred to atletico madrid, thank god that rumor has died down now, it would have been an insult to this legend to go to a side like atletico madrid.

Before you go on and on, when did I say Vieri was horrible? People should understand first and then talk. I had to repeat it 1000 times because I knew people like you won't get it, I love Vieri and I just said his salary isn't justified. Does that mean he is horrible? For some people, saying the truth about their favourite player is like a taboo!!!

29 Jun 05, 23:44
**** it, I had enought of this BS. I just want to say that every freaking goal counts and to be honest Serie A has always been decided in the away games against little teams.

If Vieri hasn't scored that much against Milan and Juve then you need to look at how much we've actually managed to scored against them as a team. We've been pretty lousy against them if you ask me. Last season is probably the best benchmark and Oba, Bobo and Adriano we're pretty equal against Milan and Juve. I rest my case.

What are you talking about? How can you equate between all goals? Is a 2nd, 3rd and 4th goals against Como in a 4-0 game the same as the only goal in a 1-0 game against your direct rivals?

So now the blame shifted from Vieri for not scoring against big teams to us not playing good? All right, fair enough, we used to suck against big teams. But that doesn't put the blame 100% on us, the star players should shoulder some blame.



Technically last? That would be Adriano, with 5 goals...

Trust me, the last thing I had in mind was turning you into a slave ;) I'm not that evil, not to a fellow Arab and Inter fan :flirt: (masar ila-5aar, mohelwa miniii....bas samihnaaa :P )


Ma3lay ;) And you are right man, I lose :depress:

[Edit] I recall Adriano scoring a cracking goal once against Milan while with Parma, so he is not last after all. I didn't know where to get his exact stats while with Parma and Fiorentina, there could be more.

I know you didn´t directly ask these questions from me, but i´ll answer anyway... :P

Is a 2nd, 3rd and 4th goals against Como in a 4-0 game the same as the only goal in a 1-0 game against your direct rivals?
Not the same of course...

But imagine that the Como match is on, we´re only leading 1-0 ´cause you said 2rd, 3rd and 4th goals aren´t really important. What if it´s 1-0 until the 88th minute and all of the sudden Como scores one or two? Then we draw or lose, that match only could cost us championship. I mean how can anyone say a goal is not important? None knows if it´s important until the match is over.

So now the blame shifted from Vieri for not scoring against big teams to us not playing good?
Still saying Vieri doesnt score against better/bigger teams?

You said something that Adriano scored against Milan when he was in Parma. I have no time to check that, but i´ll give you that one. Now i use all those facts MoH posted earlier...

Inter
Adriano – 7 Goals (2001-2005)

Vieri is second in that list? Second and he still isn´t a player who scores against better/bigger teams Hamed? Also, like i said earlier. One season at Juve and four [4] goals against better/bigger teams. Quite good, no? Dont you think he would be leading that list if he had stayed in Juve for example?

Tommi
30 Jun 05, 11:04
Milos, you mean Lazio right?

This is what MoH said when he did that list...

Anywhoooo, Roma is a big club (Not a lot of trophies) but still a big player in Serie, I should have included Lazio and Parma, but seeing as they both fell from grace during the last two seasons, I voted otherwise.
I could count/check few of of those players stats against Lazio and Parma, but i dont think i have interest to check all of them.

Then there could/should also be teams like Udinese, Sampdoria, Palermo as well ´cause they´re tough opponents. :)

Hammoudi
30 Jun 05, 13:31
Yes Tommi, I made a mistake again. I kept thinking that Adriano scored a goal for us in that 3-2 match against Milan when it was only CZ and Stan and he missed an incredible chance, so he is last, conceded!

About that example, I still consider scoring one goal against your direct opponents much better than a useless hattrick against the lesser teams. We almost beat all of them in 01/02, but our failure to win against the big teams killed us. A champion rarely wins a leauge by only beating the lesser teams.

Frisko
30 Jun 05, 17:11
I've been reading on Yahoo Sports that Bobo will cancel his contract in a matter of days. Apparently he wants to play every week so that he can get a ticket to the World Cup next year.

If he goes, I'll be sad, but if he goes to Everton or Newcastle, as rumours suggest, then it's ok, it'll be good for him, we'll lose a high wage player and everyone will be happy.

Tommi
30 Jun 05, 17:45

Last match, defending our lead and not really the goal scoring killed us in 01/02. 0-1 Vieri, 1-2 Di Biagio and then the mistakes in defence and it was goodbye to Scudetto.

About that example, I still consider scoring one goal against your direct opponents much better than a useless hattrick against the lesser teams.
How do you know in advance which goals are useless? You really dont know that until the match is over. After the matches are over, speculation is so easy dont you think...why did he score three against Como and didn´t save that one "useless" goal against Milan. :P

Accordin to italian media we will pay Vieri for canceling his contract 3,5 mln (50%of his last year at Inter), + 1 mln for the publicity rights,and 4,5 mln for the past years with us.

I can't bellive that.In last year we could just exchange him for Di Vaio.Now he could go to Juve for free and we will pay for it 9 mln !

MILAN - Inter and Christian Vieri have reached a mutual agreement to rescind his contract with the club, due to expire on 30 June 2006.

Negotiations between the player and the club progressed smoothly at every stage, and the documents related to the contractual issue were registered at the Lega Calcio offices this morning.

FC Internazionale thanks Christian Vieri for his contribution to the history of the club over the past six years.

Christian Vieri thanks Inter and its fans for the professional respect and affection which characterised the relationship.

Gosh I feel so sad, almost empty. As much as I understand this was the right choice for Inter and Bobo, it just hurts, he's not going to play for us ever again.

Why the right choice? Inter had to pay lots of money for his wages (apparently something like 12 millions), and if he goes to Everton or Spurs, he'll have the chance to play regularly, and get a ticket for the World Cup, as a bench player minimum.

I miss you already Bobo, I'll always be your fan, you gave so much to Inter and we'll never forget you. Grazie Tritolone :star: :cry: :proud:

01 Jul 05, 23:45
I think this is a mistake ,even in a season full of injurieis as a 3rd striker after Adriano and Martins ,two strikers he taught a lot ,he scored 17 goals ,which is better than Ibrahimovic ,Cassano and some other guys who are hailed all the time ,while when people talk about Vieri they call him a "has been" or "over it".

Basicly ,we gave him 9,000,000$ , 4,500,000$ of these are only for the wage-cut he took a few years ago ,now we're paying it back ,that's what I read anyway ,and I belive Vieri's contract said he earns 12,000,000$ a year ,wouldn't it be good to spend 3,000,000$ to keep a striker who has been with us for 6 seasons and would surely score at least 15 goals ?

Thank you Bobo ,the man who made finishing and heading look like art ,the man who can head the ball into the top-corner even if three Koreans are holding his shirt ,thanks for everything.

I had hoped that Vieri would stay as I still felt he had more to give and could provide another attacking option. However, assuming he is trying to make the World cup squad I totally understand his reasons for leaving and wish him lots of luck.

It is just really sad when players who have been with Inter for a long time leave, especially players who I like as much as Vieri. I hope he finds a good club and makes it to Germany.

You all probably think I am very happy for this, or that I hated Vieri. I am really sad, and it's purely sentimental. I think it makes sense finacially and in soccer levels.

Good luck to you Vieri, and I hope you succeed. I'd love for him to go to EPL and be top-scorer. I think he will be the first player ever to win top scoere awards in 3 major competitions.

I just hope he joins neither Milan or Juventus, but it's up to him and this is his own business.

As for our management, they again prove to be stupid in finacial terms. How the hell do you offer a player the most wage in his last year when he is well into his 30's and with less trade-possibilities is beyond me?

We manage to get rid of 4 good players for free in the past year. DiBiaggo, Conceicao, Adani and now Vieri. The first two had good seasons, and we could've got something for them. I still believe in Adani, and Vieri will be good wherever he goes.

Good question Tim,

Though I appreciate all he did for us, yet I was never a fan of his style of play or his personality. However it will be strange to see him playing for Milan or Gobbi! I think just to show some respect to us fans players with his caliber/history should not join a rival club – specially as at this stage of his career money is not a big issue to him.

As Hamed alreay said earlier, it is his buisness to join whatever club he wishes to.
Does he owe us fans anything? IMO no, because many fans last season IMO where jackasses to him.
I would not hate him, I still would be a big fan of him.
But in all honesty I do not believe he will go Merda, nor Gobbi.
He wants playing time, Gobbi nor Merda can promise that to him.
He needs to play regulary, he can do that at smaller clubs.

Good question, but I really care less. One of the things I never liked about Vieri was his 'too-close' relationship to alot of Milan players. That's his own business, but I like our players not to be be publically close buddies with direct rivals.

I like Moratti, Facchetti, and everything about Inter. But it's not wrong to criticize them when they did a mistake. If there is no voice of dissention how do you want us to progress? We clearly can't manage our club as it should be, and changes have to happen.

Good question, but I really care less. One of the things I never liked about Vieri was his 'too-close' relationship to alot of Milan players. That's his own business, but I like our players not to be be publically close buddies with direct rivals.

And Facade, our fans weren't the only jackasses in the Vieri-fans saga. I found it absolutely disrespectful for him not to celebrate goals in that period.

Def agree with you on that one.

As for our management, they again prove to be stupid in finacial terms. How the hell do you offer a player the most wage in his last year when he is well into his 30's and with less trade-possibilities is beyond me?

That's quite funny Hamed. You just criticised them because they offered Bobo the most wages on his last year, and they actually got away with it by not paying any of that. Don't you think they might have had a calendar back then, and said: he'll be 32 in 2005, we can let him go, we won't have to pay all that money?

I'm nobody's poster boy, and I have to deal with many people here who just love to throw shit in Moratti's, Facchetti's, Branca's and Oriali's direction. They do that even because of shit they read on stupid sites.

I'm reading everywhere that we signed Solari and Samuel, that would be Solari for free and Samuel on loan with the option to buy him next year. I'm dying to receive confirmation by inter.it and gazzetta.it, even if Yahoo Sports quotes gazzetta the newspaper confirming this.

If we did, that would be an amazing deal. We not only would sign a world class CB, we would even have the option of sending him back if he proves not to be the player he was at Roma.

The ass-kissers will come out and start hailing Moratti. Poster boy? I think you can use your name-calling with people that deserve it much more Hamed.

Frisko, yes they got away with not paying Vieri. However, they released a great player for no return, how much did Vieri cost us when he came? Did we even recover 1% of that from any team? NO.

That's how teams operate, you don't just think short-term. They buy players for a fee, then pay them their wages annualy. Then, they either renew with them, or sell them for a value that is at least half or 1/4 of how much they got him for. I know that players age with time and all, but you have to be wise in how you structrue the finances so that you won't find yourself stuck with a player you can't sell.

Vieri cost us alot of money. His fee from Lazio was a world-record, and his wage was really high. I thank him for the 122 goals, but I believe we gave him much much than what we got in return.

No point in crying over spilled milk, I just hope our management learn something from the last two years with Canna and Vieri. Don't overpay players when they are approaching their 30's!

This just doesn't make sense to me. We paid good money for Bobo, but as you said, he was 26 back then, he spent 6 years with us scoring 100+ goals.

Now, how much money do you think you can make by selling a players of 32 years of age? The only reason why Vieri can go wherever he likes is that he's a free agent now, after we agreed to cancel his contract. If someone had to actually buy him, that would be much more difficult.

A player who's been your main striker for 6 freakin years isn't worth the price we paid for him? You can't be serious!

And now, we managed to realease him and save big money on his wages. When you put the Vieri deal on the same level of the Cannavaro deal, you totally confuse me.

Hammoudi
03 Jul 05, 19:18
I surely didn't expect us to get the $30M or so it cost us to get him, but I expected something at least. The fact that we saved money by not paying his last year's wage is good, but don't you think it was moronic to structure the deal so that he'd get that much when he is 32 and a year away from being a free agent? That's a turn-off for any potential buyers!

About Canna, what I meant was that we shouldn't overpay our players once they reach their 30's. Why did we give Canna to Juve for practically free? Because his wage was very high and teams were turned off by that. He wanted to go to Juve and take a pay-cut, so that was our only option. Had we paid him modest money, we would've sold him elsewhere and got something more for him.

As for whether we got what we paid for in Vieri, I say NO. I explained my reasons many times.

Canna (for a bargain price): that's a screw up, even if Mihajlovic would be stronger than him in a 10-men-defence Capello style.

and just now Vieri, for Free: he's 32, if he joins Juve or Milan it will hurt us but he won't make them stronger (he's going to play in place of Crespo/Trezeguet).

He was born in Italy (BOLOGNA) to an Italian father and FRENCH mother. Then he moved to Australia at a young age, and amazingly developed into one of the best strikers of our time, and then moved back to Italia and became rich.

How will we finance the money to go and get Gilardino or Cassano?

The only logical thing was to sell Adriano, and bring in Cassano and other important players like A.Cole and Chivu. Selling Vieri will only save his salary which is not enough to buy 'Ambrosini' in this transfer world. I dont know why all you people are happy because we will save his salary? :confused: The next step will be offloading JZ and Matrix, now all my favourite players will be gone. Damn you Inter!

It is just pure stupidity to break the contract of someone you paid for 30M pounds, and is still recognized as one of the best strikers in the world.

When Vieri left Lazio, they started winning. Will this be a re-run and the same story happens with us?

Adriano didnt even accomplish half of Bobo's achievements. Ok, never a league top scorer and is yet to score in the world cup.

I have nothing against Adriano, but he is still no where near the 'penalty-box striker' in Bobo, and I am free to debate really. There is a difference between a striker and a penalty box striker.

The only good thing Pele said in the last decade is that Adriano reminds him of the young Vieri but still he is not up there with him.

For a striker in Bobo's age, Vieri was doing a hell of a good job.

Btw, dont mix your emotions about Adriano, the thing is, people are adding his success with Brazil with the one with Inter. Take C.Ronaldo for example, he is by far the best player with Portugal when they play, but still he didnt live up to the potential with Man U. Adriano has A LOT to do to convince me with Inter. The national team is a different case.

And again, if you are talking about goals and strikers, then sell Adriano and go get Gilardino or Cassano.

If we sell Adriano and bring in Gilardino, I wont be sad at all. Gilardino scored more goals, facts facts facts.

Face it: Vieri was the past, Adriano is the future...

This is what annoys me the most. Somehow everybody have started to think they are experts in finance. If everyone was so worried about Vieri's wage, then how about the total sum of wages we paid last season. With oversized squad we had several players who were actually useless and played only few minutes. How well was the money spent on their salaries?? Not to mention the sums we paid when we released some other players/coaches from their contracts.

But Adriano has indeed achieved quite a lot in his first full term with Inter last season. The latter half was certainly miserable but what he did in the first part of the season smacks of brilliance. You cannot deny that during that period, he was undoubtedly the most important player that Inter had. He was scoring goals from everywhere, even really beautiful ones. Adriano had a breakdown in the second half of the season and that might be a blemish in an otherwise good first full year at Inter. However, he ended pretty well with a couple of goals and that double strike against Roma that simply enhances the belief that Adriano is the man that can make things happen.

I meant about everything. Sure Vieri is not the same he was five years ago, but still he had a very good season now, a lot better than 2003/2004. And he still isn't that old, he could've easily finished his contract with us next year when it was supposed to end. Then again if it was HIS choice then why were we so dumb to pay him 9M€ to leave us. If it was his choice I bet even those dumbasses (Inter management) had been able to negotiate a better agreement with Vieri.

Adriano for sure can't be compared with Vieri yet. But to make an analogy, it is just like in 02/03, we should utilize Martins more rather than using Batistuta. Could Martins be compared with Batistuta? :p No f*cking way but it doesn't mean that Batistuta should be selected ahead of Martins.

Again, I am not implying that Martins is much better than Vieri, currently but I am sure that he is more than able to fill Bobo's boots. Maybe not now but in a couple of years time. And again, I need to remind you that cancelling Vieri's contract is a wonderful gesture by Inter to him because Inter understands Vieri's desperation to be included in next year's World Cup 2006 squad and thus decided to give Vieri more playing time and uncomplicate his negotiation.

A selfish me would have loved to see Bobo stay. But for the good of Inter, Martins & Vieri individually, this transfer is not as bad as what people made it out to be.

04 Jul 05, 12:52
OK, here's the criteria that I use to rate Vieri's transfer: Will we save money from not paying Vieri's full wage?
Will Martins get more playing time?
Will this ease Vieri's negotiation with his new club?
Will Vieri get more playing time in his new club?
Referring to 4 & 5), will this increase Vieri's chance to be included in Marcelo Lippi's squad in World Cup 2006?
Judging from last season's form; will Martins, Cruz, Recoba & most likely, Makinwa be able to fill Vieri's shoe next season?For me, the answer is yes to all the questions. Hence, I put all sentimental feelings aside (As hard as it may be) and I say to myself that the transfer benefits both parties.

Lolol, I can't believe Marco is such a Bobo-lover! I didn't know that!

Jake, we apparently had to pay more than 20ML to Bobo next year, we gave him 9ML this year, saving ourselves a handy 11 ML.

Bobo won't make any of our opponents stronger. Wherever he goes, if he plays, he will do in place of players at least as good as him.

Don't compare Adriano to Vieri? Or Martins to Vieri? Give them 6 years as starters at Inter, and I tell you, we'll all go "Vieri who?". They're so young, still they had such an impact on our team.

I don't know how you can discuss the Vieri move. As I said before, no one is going to spend big money on a 32 year old. It was an agreement to benefit both parts: Inter won't have to pay that truckload of money in wages next year, and Vieri is a free agent, which gives him a chance to move to a big club, keeping a high wage.

You guys love Bobo and react to that, I understand that.

Let 30 years go and Interisti will still remember Bobo.

Most of all I love Inter, sure I love Bobo too, but what worries me the our managements actions and tendency for very bad deals for us. You can be as biased as you want but in the last 10 years we've done so many bad deals and this is just one chapter to a long story.

Again I would like to point out, that why is it so wise to save on a player that has been and could be very useful when we are paying loads of money to players that are totally useless. I'm sure we could've been able to terminate Vieri's contract cheaper, including some kind of clause that if he plays for other club we pay nothing etc. I guess I'm living in a dream world. And how is it possible that after just one year Vieri's price tag went from sky high to the gutter, when he actually had a much better season now. And I do understand his age.

Frisko
04 Jul 05, 18:55
The only way to get a better deal would have been by screwing Vieri, and they didn't want to do that. Obviously we made several bad transfers in the last 10 years (and several great ones), still we should judge what we've done in the recent past and not keeping talking about 10 years ago over and over. Last year we did great, apart from the Cannavaro deal, we did very well. Hopefully we'll do even better this year.

The figures are based on what I've read on several sites, including gazzetta.it.

I don't rate Bobo low at all. Realistic is more like it. He did very well this year, he was awful last year. You can't tell me he's better than Crespo, Trezeguet or Zlatan.

If they rate Gilardino, who's so young, leader striker of the NT, something like 30ML, how much do you think you can sell Vieri for? 10ML? Well guess what, instead of keeping him all summer, giving him grief, and having to deal with a difficult transfer, we gave him the freedom to choose where to go. A sign of respect.

Di Biagio wouldn't have got us much money anyway. Yeah, only sell we can be sorry about is Canna's. Glad he left us now actually, but sad that for nothing.

Concei is playing in Belgium, and apparently good enough that they made him the captain.

Adani had a long injury-layoff, and the fans blamed him and other players unfairly for the results, the team didn't back him up, so he decided to quit. He is still a good player, much better than Materazzi. I hope this answers your questions.

Marco, what was Vieri doing at 23? Who heared of him outside of Italy? A kid in Cambodia knows Adriano now, and he scored GOALS to win the Coppa America and Confed cup, all that with beating stiff competitions for the starting place.

With all due respect to Bobo, even at 32 he didn't achieve what Adriano has already achieved with the NT. Vieri scored many goals, but did any of his goals help win a trophy?

Let's compare Adriano in 9 years time with Vieri, and then see.

I'm very saddened for Vieri has been one of my favourite players. Hamed I think your being too harsh. If you watched the 2002 and 1998 world cups Vieri was the only one who scored for italy and if italy had won the shootout with France or not been screwed by korea he would have won the golden boot. Also i love Adriano to death but the Coppa America and Confederations cup are not the World Cup. He's gotta do it in 06.

Roberto, I saw Vieri play in every major competiton with Italy, but again the point is misundrstood!

As soon as anyone dare and say a thing about Vieri he is misunderstood. I said compare Vieri and Adri achievement with the NT, I didn't belittle what Vieri achieved with the NT, but he won squat. He missed an incredible chance against Korea to lift his team, and sturggled in Euro04.

Adriano almost single-handedly won the Coppa America for Brazil, and a big part in the Confed cup. And oh yes, he won trophies! And I'm sure he will do great in the WC.

I think Adriano's fault is that he isn't Italian!

f-ck Vieri and f-ck AC Milan.

Christian Vieri is reportedly just days away from signing a contract with Milan following his shock Inter exit.

Whispers in the peninsula this evening insist that the striker has agreed a two-year deal after he became a free agent on Friday.

Vieri, who terminated his Nerazzurri terms by mutual consent, will allegedly sign next week once he passes his medical.

The Italian international is currently on holiday in Sardinia but will reportedly swap one San Siro club for another, despite interest from numerous other clubs across Europe.

Vieri could be joined by Alberto Gilardino in the new campaign, whose proposed transfer from Parma may be closer to completion tomorrow.

"The player will return from his holidays on Tuesday," his agent Beppe Bonetto told the Fiorentina.it website.

"That is when we will get a definite answer from Milan regarding their intentions towards him."

Should a Rossoneri switch collapse, the 23-year-old could still be heading to the city of Milan after Inter confirmed they were keen on him too.

"We’ve been chasing Gilardino for some time," owner Massimo Moratti told the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper.

"We admittedly don’t really need to make any big changes to our offensive options but we are talking about a really good player."

A couple of months ago he said 'Milan? let's not even joke about it'. Now it becomes a probability. Slippery prick.

Correcto mundo! :star:

If I recall correctly, the members who oppose this transfers are those who are pro-Italians.

By the way, I will close this topic because first, there are already similar discussions in the Vieri topic in the Transfers & Rumours forum (Here's a direct link to there (http://forza-inter.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1590)) and secondly, Vieri is no longer an Inter player. :)
