    The importance of Italians...

    Looking over at the Inter first team, there is only about 9 Italians. The rest are foreigners. One of the guys at a forum i regularly visit is a Juventini, however, he has a view that i found quite intreguing. He says that the reason Inter (and in part, the Azzurri) fail so much is due to too many foreign talent in the Serie A.

    So, for example, all the talk of when Valencia played Inter in the CL group rounds, there was talk that Valencia were probably gonig to start more Italians than Inter would've (they had one Italian player less, i think, in the starting XI, however, that's irrelevant at this time). So looking at the sqaud, does he have a point? Is Inter's continue failure due to too many foreigners in the squad? We can look at the likes of Esposito, Toni, Bazani(on last years form) and even Ambrosini, and we see quality players that aren't at the big three clubs, and if they are, they don't start. So, the question i want to ask is, if Inter changed their policy and started signing Italian players more rather than going for overseas talents, would that help, somewhat, in changing their fortunes?

    We had alot of debate regarding this issue in the italian players debate.

    In the past, I was a proponent of having many italians in the team to increase our character.

    However, a quick look at some facts changed my minds. A quick look at whom we consider now to be true interista reveal something. For me, the true interista at the club are JZ, Cordoba and Cambiasso. Three foreigners who are carrying the team, and three that display love for this club.

    There are many views on this subject, so check out that thread.

    In fact,although not some of our best players I do believe that Toldo, Materazzi and Vieri support Inter...

    Ambrosini is a Milan player.

    Again I would like to say that I don't really give a vuck whether it's Gilardino or ET himself who delivers glory to us!

    If they take him away from us, then I'd be thankful for Lazio and I will welcome Cesar and the Filipini's with open arms.

    Also, not long ago his father was linked with the Lazio coaching vacancy.
