    They scored a goal and won the match with that goal so there's that.

    Something have been missing in Interīs game after winter brake. Before that we had no substitutes and still managed to play better than now.

    I think we are good how we play as unit and Conte makes players to give their all. Something like the tactical second gear is missing. Conte doesn't have much variety in tactics even when that is needed. Today he changed and went for a goal with 424. Now it is actually the first time he has the players for it.

    I wonder where he will use Eriksen. If Conte can integrate him well then I think Inter can have good chance to scudetto.

    What's missing is he doesn't have 25 year old Vidal, Marchiso and 20 year old Pogba to run marathons every game.

    The state of his voice says it all really:

    Inter is an artistic venture, almost poetic. It is capable of provoking immense, unreachable joy and bitter disappointment. Itís never done by half-measures.
    For me, Inter is the opening to new worlds and courage. Itís 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.

    If we take a look from his chelsea days, he isn't really a fan of squad rotation. Always forced his main players to play..

    "Milan played in a more attacking mode, with spaces opening up on one side and the other. There were no spaces today, as Napoli played a very tactical game.

    “Gennaro Gattuso was smart to sit back, wait and go on the counter. We had the chances and it would’ve been a fair result if we had played out a draw.

    “When you’re up against defensive teams like this, you have to move the ball around faster and create spaces. Napoli were so clammed up.

    Anti Inter tactic blueprint for others. Free of charge.

    I still can't get over the fact that we're benching Eriksen and Sanchez. Especially after the performance Sanchez put up the other day.

    I've watched only the first half but Napoli looked like a bit more dangerous team. I didn't see neither Lukaku or Lautaro to drop down in order to open spaces in Napoli defense and i'm not sure it was Conte's decision or not. So, since Moses and Biraghi were almost no threat in attack and with our forwards staying too high, for Napoli was piece of cake to close down Sensi and Barella thus to reduce the Inter's attacks to occasional crosses only.
    I hope that shit performance after the winter break is just a temporarily drop of the form but not the upmost limit of Conte's coaching skills.

    I think we have seen enough to know that his system does better against teams that donít hunker down defensively. Please work on faster passes and long shots.

    Guys, stop with this drop down myth. It doesn't work. The defenders won't follow the attackers and the midfield will take care of that. And there's not much your midfield can do once it gets the ball either. You're just crippling your offensive prowess when you do that against parked teams.

    You need width, not length in these situations. And our wide players aren't good enough while our midfielders did not do a good job of dictating the game.

    for me it was clear that Inter doesen't wanted to spend to much energy. If you watched the game you saw that only the first minutes and at the end of the game we decided to make something more to score. The job was holding the ball, avoinding to concede and try to score at last 1 goal. We played very defensive.
    Nel bene e nel male, forza Internazionale!!

    I'm not agree as if both of Laurtaro and Lukakku just waiting to be set up to goalscoring opportunities only we're loosing them as they are not involved in the build up at all. And when one adds our offensively poor wingbacks, one cannot expect from midfielders alone to dictate the tempo and to create chances.

    There's an issue where our attackers are almost always near the opposition box, our midfielders are parked right next to them, hiding behind the wall of opposition's midfield, except for Brozo. So our three defenders have to circulate the ball between them, Brozovic and the wingbacks. There's a wall of separation between the two groups and something needs to be done about it.

    They won't follow them, sure. But there will be more passing opportunities for our players. We score by moving towards their box as a team, not one part of the team waiting for the ball in the final third with no clear path inbetween.
    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.

    It's not about dropping deep. That's irrelevant and biggest horseshit that's being recycled here.

    If the defence has 10 people behind the ball then what you need to do is increase the attacking players and scope.

    You usually force them out wide as that opens them up. You spray the ball left, torture them a bit there, move it centrally, then right and continue doing so until you find a gap.

    If your striker drops, then their central defending position would be relieved and from 5 players marking 2 guys they'll be left with 4 guys marking 1 guy... Best case scenario, it's 3 defenders on 1 forward like we've had in the previous 2 seasons. It changes nothing.
    What needs to be done is to have central midfielders that push higher up. That's the only way you force the defence to be shaken up. A striker going back to simply lay the ball to another guy who's always been an option to begin with doesn't add anything. The attacking player helps by dropping deep when you are ready to pounce on the counter. When the defence is already set, that's the worst possible idea and you're more likely to lose possession.

    Solutions:
    1) Add more people inside the box, force a confusion to the defence over who marks who or which space (typical confusion amongst defenders that leaves a free man usually)
    2) Cross fest, especially from out wide. Yes, it's something you have to try when everything doesn't work as you may end up being lucky with a header or a bad clearance.
    3) Shoot the ball from outside the box at first chance.

    If you want your strikers to help, then make them roam further wide. Lukaku was drifting out to the right for example when Sanchez was introduced and that gave us a different situation from the entire game, but we still lacked personnel up front as ther other forward was also straying out wide. This gave us the same problem we've had with Spalletti's 4-3-3ish system. Then Lukaku moved more centrally again and was some sort of targetman but we didn't do anything from that apart from a D'Ambrosio chance which was mostly due to his tenacity than anything creative we did. But that's the way to break these defences. Add more bodies in. D'Ambrosio coming as a secret forward to pounce on the ball caused alarm in Napoli's defence. We should have had both Barella and Eriksen push further to the box but Brozovic was in no position to deliver the ball there, he lost it twice within 3 minutes just outside their box for example.

    The idea of Conte to switch to some sort of 4-3-3 was okay but he did it with the wrong players. And we don't really have 4-3-3 players anyway. Should have done something else but what he did was better than the usual nothing when it comes to changing the team's setup.

    This is true, but long shots should never be our primary method of breaking down defensive teams, as the original post argued. What a ridiculous idea.

    They don’t need to be the primary method, they just need to be one of the weapons.

    1) There's literally no point in adding more people inside the box when we can't even reach the box. It does absolutely nothing.
    2) The issue is that we can't even pull a cross fest.
    3) Sure, shooting outside of the box is always a good idea to put pressure on the opposition, but we have a hard time to get near the box through the center.

    Also yeah, width is very important, but when you don't have the right players for it, not much you can do.
