    Hakimi was very poor, no question. As others have said, he's been in weak form for a while now. I agree 100%.

    That said, he's not being helped out much either. I lost count of the amount of times Barella screwed him over against Bologna. On that note, I don't know what the fuck Nico was doing today in general, seriously bad game from Barella, potentially his worst since joining the club.

    Several times, Barella got the ball and sprinted forward with Hakimi on his right and Lukaku to his left. Every single fucking time he held on to the ball way too long, which caused Hakimi to run out of space. Then, after stopping dead and losing all momentum, he passes to Hakimi who has lost the advantage of his pace, and is stuck 1v1 against a defender in the corner.

    Everyone knows that Hakimi is not a winger who thrives in tight spaces, who beats a man 1v1 with skills and trickery. No, he's a horse who is devastating when played into open space. That's why every single time, he played a short one-two with the nearest player and made a run towards the byline.

    I felt mad sorry for the kid watching him trying to play one-two with fucking Ranocchia of all people

    I won't even discuss the numerous times he made a sprint down the right only for Barella to under-hit or misplace a pass for him like a fucking amateur.




    Don't get me wrong, it's not a huge deal. They're both young players and will have bad games. Barella and Hakimi are two of our precious untouchables so I'm not that upset about their performances.

    But I have a pet peeve about Barella and that is the way he sets up Hakimi, very often, with poor consideration for the best utilization of his skills. Barella ALWAYS either underhits or overhits passes to Hakimi.

    It results in: 1) Hakimi losing his momentum and the ability to exploit his deadly pace, and 2) Hakimi having to sprint his ass off to reach the ball before it goes out for a goal kick, which in turn forces him into a real shit, uncontrolled cross.

    People have to remember that Hakimi is still a bit raw. I've been particularly impressed with how he's adapted to Italian football in his first season. He's going through a bit of a rough patch of form right now, but he's well ahead of schedule in the grand scheme of things.

    Taking his performances this year into consideration, I wouldn't mind selling him for even the smallest of profits this summer, and re-investing in a player like Cancelo, though that is unrealistic.
    Cancelo is great going forward but he hasn't improved the defensive aspect of his game since he left Inter. Conte would have a fit with his poor defending. He even had no qualms benching Hakimi for Darmian till he worked on his defence.

    Totally agree, most of the times, i didnt get why barella scream at hakimi when it was clear it barella pass to ball too fucking late, and hakimi couldnt do shit.
    Yea he in shit form, but big part of this in my opinion is in the way we play, we play too fucking slow, some players hold the ball too fucking much(brozo,barllea) and when he finally get the ball, he out of space and cant use his speed at all and nothing else that make him such a monster, the team need speed up things and then im sure he will look so much at better form..

    Relax, he did it twice in one game. Barella is burned out and the whole team looked like shit yesterday. Blaming ONE person for yesterday's game is not the right way to go.

    In attack, perhaps. But Eriksen-Hakimi combo sounds like suicide defensively down that flank.

    Eriksen-Perisic is just fine, so I don't see why not.

    I actually don’t think Hakimi is all that bad defensively. He works hard and has good recovery speed obviously. It might be more of an issue if he played in a back 4 as a fullback but with 3 very competent CD’s behind him, it’s fine.

    I don’t think people understand the fear this man puts to the opposition. Even if he’s having a bad game he had the ability to put the burners on in one moment and cause serious serious issues. Yes he needs to work on his consistency but with him on the pitch there is always that threat. I remember a game against Roma when we took him off and all of a sudden our threat was gone and it gave Roma the confidence to pin us onto our own half

    It's true. It also reflects the signs of our times when any pacey player is considered extremely dangerous.
    Hakimi had great ball skills, it's not like he's a Walcott or a Biabiany, but I think he'd be struggling a lot more 10 years ago if he was brought to replace Maicon for example. Has a long way to grow and needs to elevate his defensive game because so far it's close to very bad.
    Which is why people expect him to overperform day in and day out offensively, to compensate for the lack of defensive set, so when he has a few bad passes, crosses or shots, people diss his game. But he's far more than someone who contributes to the offensive output. He's also a right back and he needs everyone on his flank to be performing well, that means Skriniar, Barella and Lukaku. Cannot say that they have vs Bologna.

    I think he has to improve his decision making and technique. I mean, against Bologna he had few good chances to deliver a great balls but he failed as he always tried to pass the ball on the feet of his teammates. Sometimes he just needs to launch the pass into perspective. The other thing is his game 1 vs. 1. Defenders have already adapted to his attempts to beat them only with pace and he's obviously struggling often. Hakimi should add 1-2 tricks more to become more unpredictable.

    PS. I've read somewhere that we slapped 50mln price on him with Arsenal interested. I hope to be a fake rumor.

    we gotta remember his age, to be fair, too. He's an extremely raw, but extremely talented, player. I have no doubt another season of Conte will really help to round him out, too. Just gotta keep improving him. He's a long way from Maicon, but he's still not far off Maicon's goalscoring record for a season already. He'll grow as the team grows. We also need to get into the advanced training ground plays to utilise him better.

    The rumours about Arsenal are mostly coming from England and they have been there since January. I am reluctant to believe them for two reasons:

    1) It makes no sense for Inter to sell Hakimi only to make marginal capital gains

    2) I see no reason why Hakimi would be willing to go to Arsenal of all teams. If he leaves Inter, he will go to much better teams than Arsenal.

    Kind of irrelevant in the big picture. We score more, the league scores more, so it's not really a fair comparison. I'm pretty confident Maicon would have double figures in scoring in the last couple of seasons. Even Candreva had 7 goals last season and when he was barely scoring at all for us.

    He is definitely helpful by producing offensive output, but let's not make such comparisons for his sake.

    The player whom Hakimi combines best is Lukaku I think.

    Like how many time Lukaku is holding the ball with the defender on his back, Hakimi speed up and Lukaku launch him on the right side.

    I saw this setpiece way many times and I think it's deadly.

    It's definitely Sanchez, he's the only one who sees his overlapping runs and sends a well weighted pass his way.

    It works that way but not vice-versa.
