    Primavera Report Card 2012-2013

    Hopefully this will give people an idea of where our youth team stands, what expectations we have of players, and how people performed. Where to look for potential future stars, and also how we shape up for next season.

    Raffaele Dalle Vedove
    Expectations - 3/5
    Final score - 2/5

    He played alot at the start of the season, but quickly lost his place - and hasn't retaken it since - to Di Gennaro after his return from injury. Future is unclear - expect a free release or a loan out next season.

    Dawid Smug
    Expectations - 4/5
    Final Score - 1/5

    Brought in under great fanfare, he has failed to impose himself in anything barring a couple of games (Coppa Italia for example). Very disappointing considering what we were hoping to see him achieve. I naively expect him to be an overage player for our Primavera next season, but more possibly he will be released.

    Andrea Bandini
    Expectations - 3/5
    Final Score - 4/5

    The Primavera captain - who has been at Inter since he was 9 - has been solid if unspectacular at RB for us this season. He's a decent act, and solid defensively - much like Pasa - but dont expect him to be the next Maicon. He has a reasonable shot, and stands to have some time at Inter, especially with his first team debut this year. A loan out is guaranteed next season.

    Isaac Donkor
    Expectations - 3/5
    Final Score - 4/5

    Donkor - a CB of class '95 - is a longer term shout for us. He comes in with no real competition at CB, and claimed it reasonably well. He features less and less towards the end of the season - presumably missing through a serious injury, though this is unclear - he is one of the stars of next year's Primavera almost certainly. One of the youngest first team debuts ever at Inter, as well, with his Europa League appearance. Expect great things from him next season.

    Fabio Eugelfi
    Expectations - 2/5
    Final Score - 2/5

    As one of the '95 kids, he is one to look out for next year. Barely played, and little chance to demonstrate his skills, he will either be released or important for next year. Which, is currently ambigious.

    Marco Ferrara
    Expectations - 2/5
    Final Score - 3/5

    I did not expect much from Ferrara - who started the year behind MBaye in the Primavera. But after the latter's temperment issues, he quickly found space. At LWB/LB/LW, he seems to be doing alright for himself. The kid who has been at Inter since he was 9 has also been an edge in on the first team quite a few times - albeit out of necessity rather than merit - but he should hopefully be on loan next year with the chance to develop his skills at a low Serie B team.

    Davide Guglielmotti
    Expectations - 1/5
    Final Score - 1/5

    Who? Is ultimately the only question to ask here. Anonymous player, who made little to no impact on the Primavera, and few appearances. One for being released I expect.


    Leonardo Longo
    Expectations - 2/5
    Final Score - 1/5

    One of only a very few number of players we brought in this season, Leonardo Longo seems an odd choice. On loan as a CB - though albeit '95 so perhaps he is for next year more than anything - he has not featured for us and I do not expect anything from him.


    Giovanni Zaro
    Expectations - 1/5
    Final Score - 2/5

    An anonymous player in the bottom of the list, he has occassionally been given chances to impose himself especially in the latter half of this season, and he's done reasonably in them. I still expect a release for him, but do not be too surprised if he is loaned out.


    Gennaro Acampora
    Expectations - 4/5
    Final Score - 3.5/5

    Acampora is an interesting case. He clearly has a lot of talent on the ball - indeed he looks silky and is easily in the same competition as Benassi/Tassi/Olsen - but he was plagued by one red card which took him out at a crucial time, and also a serious injury. He lacks end product - infact I believe he only has 1 assist to his name - but he clearly is a good midfielder in the making. With the right to purchase set at something like 300k, it is unclear if we will take up this option or not, but I do hope we do.


    Gian Marco Gabbianelli
    Expectations - 1/5
    Final Score - 2/5

    As summarizes this season perfectly, another one of many anonymous players for the youth team. He's been given a bit more time and space in the latter part of this season as injuries kick in, but nonetheless is unspectacular in the extreme. I would personally expect him to be released next year.


    Patrick Olsen
    Expectations - 4/5
    Final Score - 4/5

    Olsen has been a really class act for the Primavera this year, despite the oft-employed long-ball tactics he's capable of delivering alot more. Only not given a debut because of some utterly retarded economical reason, he's clearly one for the future. I look forward to his first team chances next year, if not on loan.


    Simone Pasa
    Expectations - 4/5
    Final Score - 4.5/5

    Pasa completes his conversion to a CB with several appearances for Inter first team this year - he really does have it all. He's not a spectacular CB - in the sense of Thiago Silva for example - but he is consistent and solid. Demonstrated this well in his two latter Serie A starts, where he was arguably MOTM in the first, and the 2nd or 3rd best player in the 2nd. A loan is almost certain for him this coming season.


    Lorenzo Tassi
    Expectations - 5/5
    Final Score - 4/5

    Tassi has been converted into a deep lying playmaker this season, and it is interesting to see him take up this role. He still lacks a lot of end product for me, and is quite far from the complete product, but we have to remember he is of the class '95 and will be a key player for the Primavera next year. One thing which makes it a bit less apparent is that his co-ownership is up this year, and we will have to spend 2-3m to sign him outright. It will probably happen, however. But I would have liked to have seen more contribution from him this year, he needs to impose himself better.


    Niccolo Belloni
    Expectations - 2/5
    Final Score - 3.5/5

    Belloni has done well in the latter stages of this season. He's not in the league of someone like Longo or Livaja, but he's a reasonably decent counter attacker and might have something to contribute in the long term. He needs to improve his goalscoring, and all-round play elements of his game, but there is a jewel under there somewhere. A loan next season is almost certain.


    Matteo Colombi
    Expectations - 3/5
    Final Score - 3/5

    Colombi is part of the typical "not quite great" youth strikers we have - of which we have many. He's contributed a few goals this season, but his strike rate is nowhere near high enough to be useful as a classic striker - which is what he tries to be. He needs a lot more work, and expect him to be loaned out next year.


    Bocar Djumo
    Expectations - 4/5
    Final Score - 2/5

    Djumo has been poor this season. Rarely played, rarely scoring, this is a disappointing year for the man Barca nearly signed in the summer. He needs a loan and some experience to even hope of continuing anything like a top end professional career.


    Francesco Forte
    Expectations - 3/5
    Final Score - 3/5

    Forte - as our other strikers - has had an unspectacular year. He's scored at various times, but doesnt have enough to him yet. As someone of the '93 year, and in co-ownership, I wouldnt be surprised if we let him go. At least, though, expect a loan.


    Luca Garritano
    Expectations - 4/5
    Final Score - 3.5/5

    Garritano has had a reasonable impact in the primavera this year, but doesnt come close to what Livaja/Longo achieved last year. He's clearly got talent, but is so far away from being ready yet. He needs a loanm, which will definitely happen next year.


    Giovanni Terrani
    Expectations - 1/5
    Final Score - 2/5

    Terrani has played a few games, scored a couple of goals, but again, summarizes nicely the anonymous youth sector strikers this year. Release almost inevitably.


    Vicenzo Tommasone
    Expectations - 1/5
    Final Score - 1/5

    A class of '95 striker for next year, he's barely played this year.


    Lukas Spendlhofer
    Expectations - 4/5
    Final Score - 4/5

    After his contractual issues, he was brought back into the fray and looks decent. He's scored a couple of goals for the youth team as well as making the defense look more solid, he deserves the first team chance he's had, and looks to grow next year.


    Ibrahim MBaye
    Expectations - 5/5
    Final Score - 3.5/5

    MBaye's youth season hasn't been great. He's had injury issues, as well as (I believe) two straight red cards. The temperment I've so often talked about seems to still be there, and he should not be happy with himself this season. Needs a loan.


    Marco Benassi
    Expectations - 4/5
    Final Score - 3.5/5

    Benassi's looked good for the Primavera, but has barely played in the last few months as he is fully integrated into the first team. He shores up the team nicely, but lacks overall final third impact still - though one can argue that's not his job. Needs a first team spot next year, or a loan.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'll follow up with some stars for next year + expected formations.

    Sergio Zanetti will be the coach, I believe, so that'll be interesting

    Well done Browha. I think Benassi's score should be higher though. Anyone who was to busy helping the first team to make an impact at primavera should be a 4.5 IMO.

    I assessed that primarily on what he's done at Primavera level when he played

    Do you expect our Primavera to continue with the longball football next season?

    Some corrections need to be made i think.

    1) Smug -> I'm not sure where do u get the 4/5 expectation for him . Yes we signed him from abroad , which could lead u think that he is good but still 4/5 needs much more marketing (think those 2 sporting players we could sign, or the one from Salzburg) and anyway both him and dalle vedove couldn't have chances this year with Di Gennaro being fit. It's like saying Belec has failed because Handanovic was the 1st keeper.
    2)Leonardo Longo -> I've not seen him play but from what i read he seems to perform quite good with Beretti along side Donkor , so probably he will get his chance in primavera next season.
    3)Tassi -> That 4/5 in his final score is probably still yours and my desire . He hasn't delivered at all for what is expected from him . Completely shadowed by Olsen and only managed to find space in the 2nd part of the season after some midfielders were released in Jaunary to free up space from him. Anyway still keeping hopes up for this kid , because he clearly doesn't lack the talent.
    4)Benassi -> Well if a player wins his place in the first team he clearly has done enough in primavera to get more then 3.5

    1 - Smug was brought in with quite a lot of fanfare. You dont sign Primavera keepers as "backups" - you only bring them in to compete for the first team. Indeed, you dont sign any primavera players as backups, signing people at 16/17/18 means you expect them to make it. I agree his chances have been limited because of Di Gennaro, but I expected him to at least be ahead of Dalle Vedove, to be honest.
    2 - Perhaps, but he's not a Beretti player as such. He's a Primavera player, and he's not played a single game (afaik) for us. Because he's brought in on loan, it's not clear to me that we will sign him outright.
    3 - I think he looks good as a deep lying regista. Letting Del Piero go in the winter had nothing to do with making space for Tassi, to be honest, as Del Piero wasnt even close to competing for a primavera spot. Acampora's injury, and Benassi's promotion, is what got him time. He's in the same boat as Benassi (Being a year ahead), and Benassi barely played for us last season, so I'm already impressed with what Tassi has done really.
    4 - Benassi's assessment is, as I said, based on what I've seen him do on the pitch. He was actually more impressive for me in the first team when he started than he was at any time in the Primavera, but thats mainly because the Primavera long ball means he rarely is on the ball rather than just running, pressuring, and defending. I think my rating is pretty fair, to be honest. The most impressive thing he's done this year was that long range goal in the NextGen, which was awesome.
