    I really want us in the champs league next year. It is good for team morale, you saw how excited the team was when Oba scored yesterday and of course financially we need it, champs league is a must for us.

    Seems fourth spot is all in our hands, we need to win the games against Parma and Lazio and not drop any other silly points. I guess it will probably go right down to the last game of the season.

    Yes the important thing is that we beat Lazio and Parma,that would almost assure us of that elusive spot.....

    Parma is one point ahead but they won't win every match.
    then we have Lazio .... i don't think that they will win against Roma.

    And we have to play against them both in a home match.
    So if we don't get our CL ticket then it's our own fault.

    I still think we can get into the 4th spot though it will take tons of effort especially when we play Lazio and Parma where the points will be worth double

    It's great to see that Lazio will play Derby just 4 days before game with us.

    Good that we have both home games against Lazio and Parma left. We definitely should win these games and grap that fourth spot, no matter what Han says If we fail we only have ourselves to blame.

    U know what i feel Parma really want that spot...They are under the least pressure and are looking to prove a point and they have been doing really well and playing convincingly...But our destiny is within our own hands so achieving that goal or not will either be our own success or failure cause we play those two teams and we have to beat them..Not draw but WIN

    Inter is more likely to advance to CL next season...
    Lazio and Parma will be more weakened team next season, they will fight to prove themselves... but for the shake of CL and italian soccer, UEFA and FIGC will hope inter can qualify....

    imagine a team which represents italia but not worthy of qualifying to the group stage. It's gonna hurt italian league image as much as lowering the quality and reputation of CL

    Don't underestimate Parma and Lazio Yopi

    Even if both sides may not look as good as Inter on paper they can still pack a heavy punch

    Though hopefully the next games we play vs. them we beat the crap out of'em

    Honestly, I don't give a f*ck about how Italia fares in the CL. Well, I'll support Roma/Lazio but not Juve/Milan/Parma. Never. I could care less if those Spanish $hits and English eggheads complain and moan that Serie A is boring and they deserve to be knocked out of the CL. We are Inter, not Italia.

    Although I think we deserve it more,if a team finishes in a certain position (e.g.4th) then you cant they that did not deserve it as the table never lies but hopefully it will be us occupying that 4th place!

    Re: Race for the 4th spot

    4th Parma 50 pts 29 matches played 47 scored 38 against
    5th Inter 49 pts 29 matches played 50 scored 31 against
    6th Lazio* 47 pts 28 matches played 43 scored 30 against

    Remaining matches:

    INTER - BOLOGNA / LAZIO / LECCE / PARMA / EMPOLI

    LAZIO - ROMA / ANCONA / INTER / REGGINA / BRESCIA / MODENA

    PARMA - JUVENTUS / REGGINA / ANCONA / INTER / UDINESE

    won't be easy at all.....
    I don't think Parma will be a problem, even though on paper they definitely are at the moment......

    I do fear Lazio.... Our games against Parma and Lazio will be very crucial...

    Lazio's matches - I hope Roma does us a big favour.... Not to forget Brescia, Udinese. They have to play against Modena, Reggina, Ancona... If they play well, then they shud be able to win those games. Thus, Inter-Lazio will be very very crucial game......

    Parma - They are gonna have three tough games agianst us, Juve and Udinese.

    And INTER - Lecce and Empoli might not be that tough. I very much hope that Chevanton gets suspended against us..
    Telling frankly, we have got tough games then them !! - Parma, Lazio, Bologna, Lecce, Empoli.

    After the superbly bad run we had earlier this year, I fear that no match will be a 'not-so-tough' match. I predicted that we'll start the year with a bang for we were to play Empoli, Modena, Siena, Sampdoria and Udinese in consecutive matches (Serie A). Guess what, we only managed a win, 2 draws and 5 points from 5 games against the supposedly small teams. One thing that I do notice with Zac though, is that we have been very consistent in Serie A. When we win, we win it consistently, but when we lose, we also lose consistently.

    I think our players cant handle the pressure of winning conssitently whether under Cuper or Zac...U see them wininig over 5 games for example without conceding a goal and then the next match they loose by 3 or 5 goals.I dont think thats due completly to form or strategy.
