    Why does being big and black make you think someones a DM?

    What was up with his celebration btw, or lack of it? He was the same when he scored his first goal.
    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.

    Yeah, it felt like something Balotelli would pull out of his sleeve.

    maybe he's pissed off after being shit on for 18 months? He'd be entitled to be, too. But if he keeps playing the way he has been, everyone's gonna love him

    It looked like he wanted to run to the bench for some reason. Teammates tackled him though as they should have because they know how much the goal really meant to him and how much he's been through this season alone.

    My initial explanation was that he didn't quite get he actually scored
    Inter is an artistic venture, almost poetic. It is capable of provoking immense, unreachable joy and bitter disappointment. It’s never done by half-measures.
    For me, Inter is the opening to new worlds and courage. It’s a strong passion, a marvellous illness. You can put up with the weaknesses and admire the courage, the same way you would with a son.

    what? albeit he is not a dm, he is the more defensive midfielder in a 4-2-3-1, so calling him a dm wouldn't be outlandish

    didn't say it was outlandish but implication is that he never ventures forward and is therefore unlikely to score which is not true. Like I said when he joined, at Monaco he was box2box cm, sometimes dm but never sole dm as there was always Fabinho or Toulalan alongside him. Not a fan of this guy but he's done quite well of late. But i hope we look at both sides of the coin when we review his season and not just say he deserves more time to adapt. We've seen once too often with Alvarez, Quaresma and Guarin, it's getting rather frustrating

    I've criticized him a lot, but gotta say, he has been great recently. Love this cunt now.

These are essential traits he's unlikely to improve on, no matter how much confidence or game time he gets. Would trade him for Napoli midfielder Diawara who is more mature and calm on the ball and a precise passer. The kind of quality we need to compete in Europe. Hope he performs this way until the end of the season so we can sell him for at least as much as we bought him.
    Even though I really like Kondogbia, I have to agree with the bolded part. Every time he gets the ball I find myself praying he doesn't lose it in a dangerous position.

    Inter midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia admits it was a “humiliation” when Frank de Boer substituted him after 27 minutes.

    The French midfielder started against Bologna in Week 6, but was hauled off after less than half an hour by the Dutch Coach, who was sacked after 14 games.

    “Being substituted against Bologna after 27 minutes was a bit of a humiliation,” Kondogbia admitted in an interview with BeIn Sport France.

    “But above all I didn’t like De Boer’s words after the game. Something had broken between us. I think it was a lesson for me.

    “If he’d stayed I might have left. When [Stefano] Pioli arrived he told me it was inconceivable that a player like me could end up in a situation like this.

    “He gave me a bit of trust and it paid off, it’s gone much better.”

    Source: FootballItalia
    1. Kondogbia was crap in that match;
    2. Subbing him off before the break looked ballsy from the outside, but exposed him way too much and may have cost Frank the players' trust.
