    Well, players have no control over how their team-mates play so it's the opposite - team performance bonuses are horse shit.

    Why would I care about such bonuses considering there are other 10 people on the pitch that can perform horribly and even if I'm giving 110% I'm still not going to get paid for my extra efforts.
    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.

    That's why you have your base salary. You shouldn't worry about bonuses at the first place! Gives totally wrong incentives if a player even thinks about them. It's all about accountability. When the team does well, it gets more money, players get more money. It's just bullshit to motivate individual players to do extra with money. Those horse shit bonuses also lead to suboptimizations when player tries to score to get more money rather than pick the best solution (for the team) in any given situation.

    We should hire players who want to win. Just tell the agents that we don't give individual bonuses, only based on victories. Then if the team don't achieve results good enough for bonuses, players can complain to the management for getting a better team. And look into mirror why we didn't win, why was I so shit. It also creates accountability for each other when everyone knows that bonuses for all depends on team performance only.

    That works except that sometimes clubs cater to a player they really want and give him some solo bonuses, because they really want him transfered to the club. :/ For the really quality players we can't afford to pass on somebody because of that and let some other club swoop in.

    Yeah I know. That's what started all this in this business most probably.

    So we're interested in loaning Emerson now for our LB position.

    Wouldn’t be a bad move I guess. Crazy he’s gotten just about 0 minutes at Chelsea. What would we do with Dalbert then? Selling him and loaning Emerson so we can make a move this window would be too good to be true.

    Early in the season there were rumours we were willing to send Dalbert to Monaco to lower their demands for Keita so maybe our interest to Emerson is linked with that.

    Once again we're linked with Darmian. Marotta was even willing to spend 13m for him last season so i have a bad feeling we'll end up getting him if Man Utd don't activate their option.

    Emerson played around 800 mins this season, most of them in Europa league. Don't think they have any back up for Alonso apart from Emerson, so doubt they will loan him.

    After everything that's happened in this cycle events of Juve failing to sign Darmian, then us losing Cancelo to Juve and signing Vrsaljko etc. us ending up with Darmian, even on a free, especially if we passed on Vrsaljko, would be the definition of a sick joke.

    I would love that, always rated Emerson very highly. He is exactly the kind of attacking LB that we need. Too good to warm the bench at a club...

    According to Pedulla, there was a meeting earlier today between Inter and Pescara for Gravillon. Inter intend to control the future of ex Inter primavera youngster as there's interest from many clubs (including teams from abroad).

    According to Pedulla, we're bringing Gravillon back from Pescara next summer for 10m. Does anyone remember how much we had got from his sale?

    I will not be surprised if we loan Gravillon back to Pescara immediately afterwards. He plays all minutes for them in Serie B this season Literally full 90' every matches, even 120'+90' in 2 Coppa matches.

    We would hinder his development if we keep him here.

    His contract is expiring this summer, so I expect him to leave. Don`t see how Marotta would approve to extend his contract. Rumour has it he will start against Benevento.

    According to Sport Italia journalist Alfredo Pedulla on his Twitter account, Inter and Pescara have found an agreement for the arrival of 1998-born defender Andrew Gravillon who is having an excellent campaign in Serie B with the Abruzzese. Inter seem to have beaten competition of several clubs, particularly abroad. The basis of this agreement is €10M including bonuses.
    This Gravillon guy, is he considered as Inter youth product for the CL list?!

    Gravillon, Bastoni or Zinho hope one of them will make it. So next 2-3 year when godin out we dont need some major signing in defence.
