    SPAL is on the same level as Brescia. And we beat them only 2-1 at the Meazza while we were first on the table this season.

    Napoli, who I think are in a good form at the moment, beat them 3-1 after an equalizer for 1-1 by Spal just a few days ago. Serie A is not an easy league to play in.

    Point is, there is no need to downplay the meaning of this victory. Especially after we struggled a lot for a long time now, even before the break, and in recent games too.

    They have 6 victories:
    2-1 vs Lazio
    1-0 vs Parma
    1-2 vs Torino away
    1-2 vs Atalanta (!!!) away
    0-1 vs Parma away

    and now they are leading against bbilan 2-0 at home... there is something weird as to why they are at the bottom of the table
    I have weakened bolts that fastened a brain, and have relaxed. A technical break...

    I don't want to downplay this victory but every factor needs to be considered: today's sparring partner was a team that has already given up, and after our first goal did little to resist us.

    That said, we played an overall good match, no doubt about it.

    Seen the game but I was very tired and didn't really pay attention to mistakes and tactics, just tried to enjoy it. This was almost a pre-season game against some Serie C club and should be considered like a sparring match instead of an actual challenge. Random thoughts:

    Really glad that Sanchez scored and also assisted again.
    I didn't agree with subbing Eriksen in because I thought he would only get tired but then he both scored and assisted too and that made me happy because he is building his confidence and that can only be good.
    3 italians scoring, and also 3 ex-EPL players scoring. Lautaro had some nice chances (that pirouette spin with a shot that went too high) but again couldn't score. I hope he doesn't fall in a rut mentally, you could tell he was visibly upset with himself. Conte yelled at him and cursed a lot.
    Bastoni fucking boss. He can defend, he can attack, he isn't afraid to drift forward and to get involved in an attack, love this kid.
    Barella invisible as hell. I don't know why or how, I don't know if he was a problem or Gags, didn't pay that much attention, but also didn't notice him until really late into the game.
    Valero with another solid match... he ran, he was everywhere, he did his everything. Can't complain about his part, he did well.
    D'ambrosio didn't get challenged but he scored and that makes me happy because he spent a lot of time on the bench this season and he deserved this.
    Moses with probably his best match in our shirt so far. Keep it coming. Young decent. The problem with Young is that he gives a solid performance but then fucks it up with a hard blunder and that really dilutes the impression. Generally speaking I have no issues if we keep both of these players.

    Brescia fell apart but Tonali had some really nice moments. Stole possession a bunch of times, guarded the ball decently. Botched some passes but not a suprise given what he has to work with.
    Hopefully the boys get some much needed confidence after this, I especially loved that we didn't ease up in the second half (which would've been understandable given that we play again in a few days). Instead we kept attacking and Conte deserves respect for that if anything.

    Agree but the late changes make no sense. We are up 4-0 against a team that has given up.

    Why not put Esposito and Pirola in. fine 2 of the subs both scored but game was over. If a player can’t handle the pressure against the worst team in the league and being up 4-0 then probably shouldn’t be part of the 1st team
    VAR is some serious Bullshit!

    Yesterday the team played a great match! All players have played one of their better match in the season!

    The defence is much better with Bastoni on the left and also D'Ambrosio played very well!

    Moses and Young are our best wings at the moment and yesterday we saw that!

    Sanchez was a monster yesterday, man of the match! Goal, assists and a lot a magic skills!

    The only one that didn't played well was Lautaro... Too much nervous, currently he is not able to score in any way...

    Agreed and especially for our wingbacks. Dont hope too much of Young/Candreva/Moses because they played a great game today.

    Great win from all even though it is Brescia on the other side, but scoring six goal never comes easy it may just look easy.

    The one goal I was not excited about was 4th by our mistake of a player Gags, he just reminded me of Sassuolo miss .

    What are you watching?He is obviously trying hard to contribute.

    But I love to hype italian players like Candreva.

    I know that it is a bit late, but I wanted to share my thoughts on our game against Brescia.

    Perhaps the starting point for this post is to acknowledge the special performances of three players: Valero, Sanchez and Moses. I am not a fan of Borja. For a long time, I have been calling for him to be shipped out and for Inter to find a replacement. It is hard for me to say this but Borja was awesome against Brescia. On countless occassions, he was leading the charge in midfield and was well up to speed with our game. I lost count of the amount of times he was pressing and pushing forward, leading the line and wanting to be involved in our game. One thought I had while watching is that he shoudl not be scared to have a crack. There were a few times when he had the chance to shoot but elected to pass it off. The other thought i had in relation to Valero was when he was running forward and I found myself thinking “Valero’s turned back the sands of time and is actually playing with pace and urgency!”

    I thought the match against Brescia was Moses best game for Inter. When he is in full flight, he is great to watch. His overlapping play and the manner in which he made himself available for his teammates was fantastic. And most of his crosses caused problems for Brescia’s defence. There were a couple of occasions when he slowed down the play and delayed in putting in a cross but he was great to watch and crucial to our result.

    And then there is Sanchez. I have kind of been caught in two minds in relation to Sanchez. In one way, I feel he has not been very convincing and that he should simply be allowed to return to Manchester United. But in another way, I feel that he has had limited opportunities due to injury and should be given a real chance to show what he can do. Sanchez played a full game and did not stop. He understood that he was leading our attack and played accordingly. More than anything, I was impressed with his work rate and effort and some of the short passes and interplay between our players around the box was breathtaking.

    What do all of the abovementioned players have in common? They are playing for their respective Inter futures and perhaps have realised that they really need to step up if they are to have any hope of staying of the club. For Valero, I think it is probably too late. He is too old for a contract extension and Inter need to find a replacement that can offer something more. Having said that, I would not be complaining if he continued in this vain until the end of the season.

    Sanchez and Moses are in a different boat. I have read rumours in recent days that Manchester United are not keen to extend Sanchez beyond the end of Serie A because they want him to be available for the Europa League. They firmly believe that they are going to advance and might cross paths with Inter and if that is the case, they want Sanchez playing for them rather than Inter. As for him staying for a further season on loan or a permanent move, his wages are the major stumbling block. If he continues as he did against Brescia, I would be happy for his loan to be extended or for him to stay. I guess the other issue is how much he will play given that the only reason he played was because Lukaku was being rested.

    As for Moses, I am not sure how things are going to turn out for him and where Chelsea stand. With Hakimi coming in next season, Moses’ playing time would be limited and we would also have Candreva. Moses biggest issue is consistency. In some games, his performances have been pedestrian or his impact has been limited. In other games, he has entered the field and made a real difference. Ideally, I would like for him to start in front of Candreva for the remainder of the season but I am not sure how realistic that is.

    A few other thoughts: I thought Bastoni was awesome on the left. He anticipated the game well and I felt he got more forward and went deeper than usual. His composure and the way he anticipated the game against Brescia were great and I absolutely loved his crosses on the left. The goal he scored against Parma appears to have given him greater confidence and he has been one of the stories of season 2020.

    I am not sure if Conte ripped into the team following our performances against Sassuolo and Parma or whether the manner in which we played was down to Brescia being so poor. I think it may be a combination of both. But the best thing about the result against Brescia was the intensity, desire and interplay. In terms of play, this is the ideal to which we all want our team to play: determined, controlling and relentless until the final whistle.

    And right now, the only questions that remain following the result against Brescia are what version of the team are we going to against Bologna? And are we consistent enough to try and keep it going?
