    Maybe we just didn't know how to utilize him based on what he could offer?

    I don't think he'll play against Shaktar and could probably play in the second half in an eventual final.

    Sorry, are you arguing that we should have kept Poli-fuckin-tano? Come on dude. If you want to criticise our mercato last summer, you could say we fucked up not buying a 4th striker (Dzeko/Giroud/etc). Selling Politano made perfect sense, he is no striker. Politano would find it difficult to hit the target if the goal was the size of a rainbow. We are getting 21m for him, its daylight robbery.

    And what was Politano's big contribution you are referring to in Napoli's Coppa win, apart from his impressive 0 goals and 0 assists in the entire competition? He did diddly-squat.

    When did this American frenzy of quantifying football players based on goals and assists arrive? Okay for silly PL club fanbases that need something to enrich the vanilla taste from their clubs, but why on earth is this a thing here?

    As for what was fucked up, I was clear and for some odd reason not sinking the message hard enough. We spent most of our budget on one player, one who isn't capable of making a difference, so there's what was fucked up. Wr could have been more prudent with our budget if we wanted more depth.

    Wasting 25m on Lazaro doesn't help either.

    P.S. Sanchez is not a striker either.

    Politano is a good player, just has been used at the wrong position. He is too one-dimensional and must ONLY be used as an inverted winger. You can't judge him when Conte playing him as wingback or striker. Or even with-winger tactics but relying on cross.

    That being said, him leaving was a correct (and unavoidable) decision.

    He didnít offer all that much as an inverted winger either.

    Dont follow Politano since moving to Napol tbh, but 6 goals and 6 assists + tons of crossbar hits (if you remember those crazily unfortunate times) was by no mean as trashy as you guys describe him.

    Politano. The man just couldn't score, or to do anything else for that matter. He would offer zero contribution in EL now, and Inter in general, like he did when he was here.

    EDIT: Just checked and Politano actually scored at least 6 goals for us Probably the effect of tons of missed chances or the unnecessary additional moves he was making all the time clouded my memory.

    He far from trash and would make an okay backup if we still played with advanced wingers, but he simply had no role in our current team.

    I'm not implying anything, he has proven this.

    He is in form now so you are riding the moment, but we're in the Europa League because he missed a ton of easy chances while he was an obvious liability in our opener vs Slavia which should have been a win.
    He also hasn't shown up in big games. One of his top performances was against Leverkusen but he hasn't shown much continuity. If he can keep it up, lead us to the final and be a catalyst in is winning this trophy, then he fractionally returns some of the investment made. But if he doesn't keep it up in nedt year's CL and Serie A, it's just a phase of good form that cannot be sustained. So far this was it.


    For 80m I want a difference maker. Our difference makers have been Sanchez (virtually free) and Eriksen (20m). Lukaku is just capping some good collective performances being the main striker that gets scoring chances.

    I get that you want to paint him as the next Adriano for whatever reason and think that because Icardi situation was so fucked he has to be loved no matter what (12 months now, shit or great, the love is the same by a group of specific people here and don't accept that he can be criticised).

    Have you seen Lukaku making a difference somewhere that matters, such as big games or CL? Have you seen him be the only one shining while the rest are shit? Lifting the team up? If anything he's mostly been the opposite and only picks up if he gets on the target which shows fragility. He has erased that a little, but that's still on his season's tally.

    Ludogorets and Getafe are Brescia and SPAL type of teams.

    Leverkusen is the first good team we faced by their were out of their normal form.
    Shakhtar is the first on form team we will face in Europe since the group stage. Hopefully all of our guys show up and be committed throughout the duration of the game. Including Lukaku of course and Sanchez if available.

    Getafe was fourth in the league before Covid19. They were really on a roll. Brescia and SPAL are constant relegation type of clubs in Serie A.

    Sure, Ludogorets is a team we should always beat, and usually, in previous seasons, we failed to do that. This season we won both games.

    And we didn't crumble under the pressure that Leverkusen was forcing on us, compared to what happened to Atalanta yesterday.





    Also, I don't believe we need Alexis to beat Shaktar, especially if Sensi and Eriksen are game ready. With Sevilla/United, I do hope he'll be on the bench.
