    Effectively you are telling me that you would expect Inter not to lose to Genoa/Brescia/SPAL if our lineup was:
    Berni;
    Asamoah (on the right)
    Ranocchia
    De Vrij
    Biraghi;
    Barella
    Gagliardini
    Vecino;
    Candreva
    Vergnani
    Mulattieri's sub

    And your only first team sub is Politano.

    When our players had 2 weeks rest while the others had 6 months to prepare for the opening.

    We have had much worse expectations with better lineups

    Be realistic please. There's nothing surprising here.

    Ofc it is. If you spend so much on players but can't manage to not lose against Lens, you failed in life.

    Tuchel will lose his job this season.

    Tuchel had no business having that job to begin with, he's not a coach for that kind of a team.

    I'm pretty sure this randomness you are instilling here comes from your naivety in believing that French teams are part of a "farmer's league" and that PSG is forced to just beat everyone because they have Neymar and Mbappe and a bunch of others.

    It's actually a rather difficult league as it is, well, random itself. Lens had like 20% possession but ended up winning.

    If we had Gueye, you'd want him benched for Vecino or Gagliardini. If we had Kurzawa, we'd be thrilled if we got Darmian. Jese is average and makes Politano seem world class. Kimpembe is clumsy as fuck.

    Their team is not that great aside from their attack (including Di Maria, Draxler and Sarabia) and Verratti. The rest, apart from Bernat because we do not have a real player there, wouldn't be starting at Inter and most would fall behind our existing players in the pecking order.

    PSG is all flash, there's no substance. That's why they need Mbappe or Neymar (and sometimes Di Maria) to pull a rabbit out of the hat. And yes, they "should" have won, but you don't always get to win. And playing against a team that had 6 months to prepare and several official games under their legs while you have half your squad away and just 2 weeks of training makes a big difference.

    I don't disagree with anything you said. I don't think you understood my point, so let's leave it at that

    Kinda off topic but i know you are one of the few members who watch Ligue 1 a lot so you're the best person to ask. What's your opinion on the Rennes GK Chelsea are signing?

    Honestly, no clue. He wasn't relevant for years and I don't think he even played much until a couple of seasons ago.

    According to Jules (the French journalist) he's a late bloomer who's 197cm IIRC. He doesn't think he'll be a starter but given chances he will impress in England, and he most likely will get them since they have approximetly 313 cups over there.

    Another loss for PSG, now with more first team players on the pitch. I'm loving this, also no Neymar for them next game they are playing Di Maria as a striker

    Hopefully we get them in CL

    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?
    "With Milan, without doubt. And I don't like the Rossoneri fans either because they have a way of behaving, particularly when they win, that I don't appreciate."
