    Inter - Saint Etienne (23 Oct 14) [0-0]

    First match thread so go easy, i am not an artist nor am i tech savy, just saw that there wasn't a thread yet for this fixture and its coming up quite shortly, and I'm curious to everyones thoughts on it and how we should approach it based on the fact that a win will virtually seize a one way entrance to the knockouts. Cheers!

    My "Please sir!! No more!!" list:
    1. Wide formation when most of the players are good with Narrow formation
    2. Forcing to attack from both flanks, these players can attack dynamically.
    3. Blankspots
    4. Dumb backpasses as the result of the Blankspots
    From that day forward, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, until death do us part

    Since our advancement is almost sealed, I just hope we see rotation between our youngsters and benchwarmers.

    Pfttt, Not a chance.. We're gonna see the same shit all over again...
    Even Bona and Puscas won't feature if we have no striker left, always remember, Guarin is our fourth Striker.

    Okay, the template for the game topic titles are pretty simple and easily to follow as there is like a 1000 examples. Just do it in the same style every other game is in. So people, if you're going to make a game thread make the effort to get it right

    Thanks, this is a message from your friendly moderator team.

    This might be one of the few times this season where I genuinely don't care about the result. I'd like to see Mazzarri experiment with some players and formations but its basically taken for granted that he won't actually do anything along those lines. We're practically assurred advancement so I am ok with a tie or loss if we can get a little bit of tinkering going, I REALLY want to see Bonazzoli play (although I doubt it'll happen). If we play our starting 11 and lose I at least expect some ridiculous Mazzarri stunt to appease my anger (red card, broken hand, bottle bite, really anything as long as I can subjugate my misery upon it)

    Nope, coefficient points are important for Italy to get their fourth spot back and for us when it comes to getting put into plots during the group stage draws. Unless you want us to be like Roma and get drawn into a group with Bayern and Man City or something similar if/when we get back into the CL?

    Its not even giving the youngsters a "chance" anymore when you consider just how well they are playing the primavera. Hasn't bonazzoli scored 4 twice this year? Had something like 13 goals in 6 matches. Puscas grabbed a hat trick in the derby against milan this week?
    Sounds like there doing a lot more then some of the cats up here...Let the damn kids play!

    St. Etienne are the toughest team in the group (doesn't say much). I'm looking forward to this one.

    We can seal qualification of we win, meaning much less pressure on us and we could focus a bit more in Serie A. I expect both Guarin and M'Vila to start, and really wish Obi will get a go after his performance against Napoli last night. I don't think Bonazzoli will start, but he might get a chance as a sub. Expect Andreoli to be back in defence a the cost of Vidic.

    In that case you could even argue Dnipro are better. I rate Shaktar and Kiev, or at least I did in previous seasons. I know Shaktar lost a lot of good players this summer.

    Hoping Bonazzoli or Puscas will start instead of Palacio.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    Almost is not good enough. I will be very surprised to see any serious rotation yet - maybe in the 5th and 6th group phase games if we have already qualified by then.

    These two games against St Etienne, Inter will go for a win with our best XI or close to it.

    Hmm I honestly didn't really take that into account at first, I concede. WE NEED TO WIN THIS (although I'd still prefer some rotation from Mazzarri, don't want the team too tired this weekend)
