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




    Random Conclusions:





    Chasing Cesena:



    After the draw with Cesena at home, the race for a top 3 finish, regardless of its probability, withered away on a dreadful Sunday night. Hell, you could even say that it was Cesena who lost two points and not the other way around as they stood their ground against an unimaginative and soulless Inter. On the standings front, the victories of Lazio and Fiorentina certainly did not help but this observation should come from someone who genuinely believed that we were in this Champions League ticket race in the first place…

    After the draw, a new tone emerged by some of the supporters here against Roberto Manicni, ironically from a portion of his avid supporters, that laments the disappointment on his (and the team’s) inability to withhold the constant public promises of a 3rd spot finish. Not to mention his bold claims on a scudetto hunt next season when the squad’s only sign of consistency is the persisting new flaws we uncover on a weekly basis, be it defensive gaffes, neutered attack, exposed midfield, players limitations… etc.

    In the end, he brought it on himself but more on him later...

    Whether it was an emotional outburst in the match thread or an undisclosed private thought, I suppose most of us conceded that the season is practically over. Unless you’re part of the devoted yet deluded mass, you need to readjust your expectations, mainly to avoid another letdown. Hence my indifferent reaction to the Cesena draw. Don’t get me wrong, I was infuriated with those two hours of boredom that reaffirmed my doubt in this team’s lack of cohesion, as Universe pointed out in his post-match comment. It was more of a final blow to our goals, a notion that Mancini himself admitted in the post-match presser:


    "This was a game that, had we won it, would have taken us to within seven points of Napoli with 11 games to go. I'm naturally an optimistic person and I had hoped we might have been able to do a little bit more than this.

    "With 39 points, anything could have happened -- it would only have been seven points to make up in 11 games -- but it's pretty difficult now. Unfortunately we're alternating good games with bad ones and I can't be happy tonight."

    Forget the 10 points gap with Napoli prior to Sunday, there were 3 in-form teams ahead of us in the standings table that some of us selectively chose to forget about or wished they’d drop points. It was a naive thought especially when one of those 3 teams, Fiornetina, taught us a tactical lesson a week earlier even though they’re suffocating in this month’s ‘death’ fixtures run. Even as I write this preview, highlights from the capital show Viola thrashing Roma 0-3 in the Europa League second leg. So, in three weeks, they have defeated Inter, Juve (coppa), Milan, Roma (Europa), and only lost to Lazio, another in-form team that lacks continental duties. And people expect us, a team that was trailing at home to Cesena, to replicate such achievements?

    On a side note, can you imagine the experience Montella gained in this hectic period?


    Zero Year #6:



    As tedious and repetitive as it is, the focus should be on next season… for the sixth year in a row. However, that feat requires a reliable structure that we sadly don’t possess. The game against Wolfsburg in the Meazza proved that. Think about it, who on this squad is a safe bet to build the team around from the back? I specified the rebuilding phase to the defense because in any general assessment, the unanimous vote would definitely go to Icardi after his recent progress. When we look at the available options on our CBs roster however, the fragility resurfaces between a captain whose commitment to the club is merely a verbal reassurance despite his good form, a youngster who has been regressing for a while now, a disturbed senior, and a good backup in Andreolli. Does that sound like a title-challenging core, Mister Mancini?

    What about the midfield? Clearly the double pivot of Medel-Guarin against Wolfsburg was outstretched numerous times as Kevin De Bryune escaped the clear instructions of double marking to assist the first goal. What about Kovacic? The kid that brought a substantial depth to our offensive game tonight, why was he on the bench these past few weeks? Wouldn't playing him be more beneficial for his and our development? The lack of depth was also alarming once Mateo was subbed for an injury in the second half.

    That being said, Mancini did join the project in the last four months which requires patience and an equal chance like the one Mazzarri had. Even though I still question the decision to build our transfer policy on the now abandoned 4231 formation. Regardless of our evaluation to Mancini tenure so far, we can’t deny the man’s ability to assess a squad’s shortcomings. At least that’s what the recent comments by Micah Richards indicate. For those of you who didn't read them, it seems that Roberto contacted Micah (on loan at Viola) during the winter mercato and expressed his desire to build a team for the future. The man knew at the time that his freedom with experiments was short and despite that he made those irrational claims, which is the most vivid flaw in his man management since December.



    We Are Inter:



    Most of you know that I follow Cagliari as much as Inter this season, and if there’s one thing I learned from this experience is that we are not different physiologically from the rossoblu despite the contrasting positions on the table. Let me try to explain what I mean through the form list of the league’s last five games. (Latest result starts from the right)





    I’d like you to shift your attention away from the positions of Lazio, Firorentina, and Sampdoria for a minute and focus on the two teams directly above us; Verona and Chievo. Now, look at the last 3 results and readjust the rankings once more, you will see that the likes of Cesena have 1 win and 2 draws while Empoli came back to earn 3 draws. That’s four relegation candidates leapfrogging us these past 3 weeks, which says a lot about their will to collect scattered points from the big clubs (Inter, Roma, Milan, and Napoli) before the ‘drop verdict’ on May 17th.

    This situation drove Cagliari's realistic (and not defeatist, I hate that word) supporters at unionesarda to concede their relegation in what was a failed campaign as they set their sights on returning to Serie A one day. The lack of resilience has been the bane of Cagliari’s season, a team that has produced decent football but lacked the urgency to defend a lead and the hunger to seal a win. What about Inter you say? Well, replace "Caglairi" with Inter, "relegation" with Champions League, and reread the earlier sentence..





    Look at the top ten...

    There was a time, ironically not long ago, where the importance of the derby della Capitale revolved solely around the city’s dominance as Roma and Lazio battled it out for a top five finish. Today, we along with Milan find ourselves in the same spot the capital clubs were living as the significance of the derby della madonnina no longer holds a direct value on the title race or the Champions League battle. How times have changed. It should also be a reality check for Manicni that the "proud Inter" he speaks of no longer exists as the foundations laid eight years ago have long gone. What we're left with now are the patches that were brought in at various transfer stops to fix a rapidly declining squad after the treble.

    Black Jesus said (dear God, you don't say that everyday) that there's nothing to get excited for anymore, and even though I'm inclined to agree with him, it's hard to stay away, isn't it? Well anyway, if Mancini is serious about ushering a new dawn for Inter, then he'd better change his starting eleven preferences, enlist an tenacious attitude in the players or at least make them fight for the colors of the shirt, let them send a message to the other 19 teams that they got a pass this time and we're ready next year for a real rumble. And for pete's sake Mancio, stay quiet like Montella and Pioli instead of making hollow promises every week.



    FORZA INTER!

    We are bad team, in bad form with a bad coach.

    Add their great form, fantastic atmosphere and our tiredness from Europa league and we're getting one direction game.

    We should let them borrow Bonazzoli early for this match, maybe he can gain some confidence.

    You see people from Colombia, Oceania, Ireland(i think) pretending that at least ONCE in their life they saw a young wc talent arriving and becoming a world star.

    Just a idea: if you want a serious debate about football, you should block everybody from countries that NEVER will win nothing and NEVER will have a balon d'or, for example.
    Whats the point about those guys opinions??? Can i go to some New Zealand chat and start to teach them how to recognize the better wc prospects among young Rugby players?
    Again, if you NEVER saw a young wc prospect struggling in his first years, like Kaka or Ronaldinho who were booed by they local supporters here, how could you judge????

    I found this on his wikipedia page.



    His record for us back then is great but remember the circumstances with Rube in Serie B, Roma being shit and Milan with there problems already back then. Considering the amount of cash he had in City and the fact he never made them go through the group stage in the CL does not really make me think he is superior as some tends to make him.

    It feels like we don't have any philosophy when we are playing and our players are therefore running around like chickens without heads. It was the same feeling I got when I saw a couple of the games he was in charge for in Manchester and the same I read back in different articles when he was fired in Galatasaray.

    I'm not saying we should get rid of him. We have had 8 coaches in the last 5 years without it has had a possitive outcome. Mancini needs time and I think we will give him two years to prove what he can do. It takes time to build up a winning team and I think two years from now on would be a fair amount of time for him to make the necessary changes both when it comes to adapting a philosophy, a tactic and getting the right players for it. However I'm sadly not sure this will be the case when it comes to Thohirs patience and Mancinis coaching skills.

    With his domestic success with City you have to understand that what he overcame before you can really judge. Sure, City weren't great in Europe, but judging by them scraping through again this year it appears no manager so far has been able to get the best out of those players. But in the league, Mancini beat a superb United team to the title with a City side that hadn't experienced any recent success. They arguably have a better squad now and they are still quite far behind.

    He is a good manager. I'm not able to pinpoint his philosophy, but I hope we give him the time he deserves to carve his squad and leave his mark on the team.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also, only having three years out of 13 without a trophy is a pretty good managerial record. Winning 6 in three years is pretty good too. His credential is success.

    You can't say he had this and that when he's won everywhere he's been.

    Roma's Spalletti was a great side btw and also Milan still had a side that won the Champions League so in 2006/07 there was more competition than Juve had.

    Tough game this one. Everything points to a home win. Our fatigue from tonight, them being on a roll and playing some great football this year, a packed Luigi Ferraris, a Lacey and dangerous front three against our Swiss cheese defence...

    1-1 draw.

    Please play Anreolli instead of JJ he is having a bad time and should be benched while Andreolli has always been solid. I would start Kova and bench Hernanes. We need this one and we need to show some fire. 33 points till the end lets just give it a go.

    I'd be tempted to give Icardi a rest (not because I'm an Icardi hater), but because if we want to get an EL spot we'll need him to be fresh and in top form for the rest of the season. Although, he probably really wants to play against his former club. Seems like that type of guy.

    Alnyway, I can't help but think that not qualifying for the EL might do us a lot of favours next season if the financial handicap isn't that severe.
