    But the common logic and unbiased approach tells me that either Marotta is an idiot or suffering from dementia (for which I will give around 30% of probability) or he has deals with Dzeko-Lukaku-SMS ready to be announced so getting rid of Icardi and Radja won't compromise our objectives. Still, I am not convinced with Lukaku quality (Dzeko is actually a beast even at 32-33) plus Malcom case taught us (or Rui Costa back in prehistoric times) that you never know that the player is yours before he is in your HQ signing his contract.
    Marotta is a capable guy, idk what his endgame is but I hope there is one.

    Some extracts from the press conference.

    Mourinho: ďI'm not Harry PotterĒ
    July 10, 2009

    SURPLUS ďStarting with 30 players is a problem, it doesnít make things easy. Itís even worse finding players that I donít want here, who know I donít need them.Ē

    ďMaybe players are not as proud as they used to be, it used to be enough just to say that you didnít need them anymore. Nowadays priorities seem to have changed: thereís money and standard of living to worry about, rather than trying something new.Ē

    ďI need to respect the terms of contracts, but as a coach, it doesnít change my mind about who I need and who I donít.Ē

    NO NEW CASH ďAccording to our plans, eight players were supposed to be leaving and four new, very specific signings. At the moment, only 4 have left, three have contracts nearing expiry and on one loan, which equals no new cash. And of the four new players, the team still needs a playmaker and a central defender.Ē

    ďBut I want to make it clear, Iím not criticizing the club: we canít spend too much without having any incoming funds. I am not critical, or angry or disappointed: itís not the roster I dreamed about but itís what Iíve got, and the teamís objectives will change to match this reality.

    ďI canít ask the President for any more: Iíll work harder, but I canít do miracles. Iím no Merlin or Harry Potter.Ē
    EDIT: In part already posted by Dario.

    EDIT 2: My bad, wrong interview (Conte should pay the copyright holder - good try, but naming names wasn't enough to sound original).

    I wasn't, but I'm now for a second . And I don't need 5 paragraphs, I will just do 1. Marotta is not an idiot. But so isn't Conte. It's clear and his words today could be expected. I'm not worried (yet). Way too soon for that.

    Haha are people actually blaming Conte for saying what he said? We should be grateful, we finally have a manager with a pair of balls willing to call our management out on their bullshit and speak in behalf of the fans. Our mercato so far especially as Conte said on selling players has been fucking embarrassing, why are players like Borja and Dalbert still in the squad? Lyon want Dalbert, stop going back and forth for 5 fucking million..just give them him. And Borja wtf are we waiting for? Throw him in a retirement house and leave him there

    What I don’t understand for the life of me is why everything is made public: everyone knows the players we want to buy and the players we want to sell...wtaf?

    That's all fine and neat except Conte isn't the kind of person who after expressing dissatisfaction goes and makes do with what he has. He is more the kind who flips the board with the pieces over and goes home.

    With Eto'o and Sneijder we had a perennial championship squad that needed a quality jump and we had already locked Milito, Motta and Lucio by this day.

    Now we are trying to kick away our two highest earners whilst publicly dissing them, as well as having a top executive and the manager publicly stating that Lukaku is our main target.

    It's not even a comparison between fruits here.

    Where did I say the situation was comparable? Cafe replied to a press conference from Mourinho complaining about the shape of his team and said he performed magic anyways after that. All I said was he also got Eto'o and Sneijder after that press conference, which was the huge boost the team needed.

    Not sure what kind of argument you are trying to conjure up here, but I was just simply stating what happened after that press conference.

    Kudos to Conte for saying what he said. Sabatini and Spaletti to some extent said the same things. It's no secret that this club is infested with incompetent fucks from the highest corporate positions to the person who hired the translator for today's press conference.

    Maybe i'm the only one but i don't like Conte's words. When he got the job he should know very well that Inter have some FFP restrictions and cannot spend billions on every of his demands. In addition it looks like for him Lukaku is the only alive attacker left in the world.

    So if he said "I will only take this job if you get me Lukaku" and Suning agreed, he is in the wrong for demanding Lukaku at any price?

    It's not like we are flat out denying the request...it seems we are only 5-10m away from sealing the deal. Is it really smart for Suning to piss off your new coach over 5-10m?


    And I don't even want to spend that much money on Lukaku. I am just saying they obviously made some promises to him and now they are very close to getting the guy he wants...just get him.

    You got him, now you deal with him, and things you probably agreed before he signed that contract.

    I think we can start worrying if the mercato don't ends like it was expected. Seems like what happend with Sabatini could happen again. I hope not, it's early to say it. Conte made anyway the right thing. He but also every Inter fan is annoyed of this situation, every year the same shit. Now it's time to make things clear and to react.

    FiF is nuts. Coach wants a single player and you back the coach...smh.

    We already have experience with this. Jose came in (much better than Conte), got his players and we lost a ton of money. When the transfer strategy changed to a partnership with options, we had a much better outcome.

    Conte's 2nd season in Chelsea where he got the players he wanted (bar lukaku) is evidence enough NOT to follow and deliver everything Conte wants

    And this notion that it's "obvious" we "promised him" lukaku is silly as hell....maybe it's actually in Conte's contract
    .

    I'm backing the coach in the sense that he was promised something. Now he has no forwards at all in a preseason tour. That's just ridiculous. That's like complete opposite of what was agreed. Management should have settled with this Lukaku bullshit way earlier, concluded the deal or then just went "fuck it, we go with other options". I don't know if it's the management or Suning or both, but some people have been making mistakes because it is surely unbearable situation to go to top friendlies against Man Utd and Juventus etc with strikers like 17y Esposito and bankrupt-Palermo returnee Puscas.
