    My theory: when we are under intense pressure, Brozovic is the only one capable of receiving the ball, turn and try to work it out. Barella and Gag would pass back or clear the ball away. Therefore Bro always stood out and scapegoated.

    Barella ran hard and tackled a lot to win the ball back so people adore him, so do I, but he simply didn't help enough with resisting opponent's pressure.

    It doesn't matter whether Brozo is our most consistent player or not, if he will not suit our tactic anymore. It's like keeping Hazard in the team if you intend to play 4312.

    Brozo was our best midfielder overall for past couple of years, but there are things that are very irritating with him, one of which is his IQ which seems obviously low, looking also at the stunts he does privately.

    Whatever we think, seems like Conte is shifting from relying on Brozo for our gameplay and moving it to Eriksen/Sensi up front. Perfectly valid proposition.

    Yeah,selling best midfielder seems like a better idea than selling player who was average last two seasons.

    We should just keep them both if we can't get good money for Skriniar (60+M).

    Yeah, this might be a good move if we get more out of Eriksen this way. However this needs changes all over the pitch because we need to get out of our own zone and if we don't have Brozovic to do it in the middle as the "dynamo", pass wall etc. we need something else.

    That won’t be an issue. Based on the predicted lineups and transfer rumors we are going more towards wide CBs that are comfortable on the ball and more importantly supporting the attack. Bastoni, D’Ambrosio, Kolarov, and Pirola should have no issues with build up. What Godin and Skriniar both had in common is that they struggle with that part of the game, which I believe is the number one reason they are expendable in Conte’s eyes.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if at times next year we see an Inter more reminiscent to Atalanta and their approach.

    Exactly that, thank you.

    Like thatdude said Cafe, the idea is different now. Seems like Conte wants to push us forward and move our orchestration to the front where Eriksen and Sensi will be. There is this thing with 2 not so great on the ball midfielders, but with Perisic, Hakimi and 2 better ball playing defenders on the sides, it should compensate for that.

    I think that's what Conte has in mind for that season. The good thing and what you guys (people who were disapointing in Eriksen playing so little) might be happy about is that Conte wants to really give it a go with Eriksen as Sensi can play in 352 as he demonstrated just fine. Eriksen cannot. However in 3412 with 2 hardworking midfielders to cover for him, it might.

    Curious to see how it will look for the next 6 months. I keep fingers crossed.

    I just don't think Brozovic should be considered in this 'playmaker' position. To me, he's a player who plays off his teammates. He's a player who feels comfortable working for his team, but is gifted and can give a bit more.
    Awaiting the start of our youth project.

    There's a play on words with Conte and Kante that I'm surprised hasn't been exploited.

    It’s mostly the media trying to sell Conte Kante love story. Most people are not too positive about it plus Ausilios denied it twice.

    Let's go for Locatelli from Sassuolo. He was mentioned in one rumor weeks back. Around the time we met with Sassuolo DS the first time. We met him second time too later.

    Send Nainggolan back to Cagliari.

    This is the first time in years we get to have a midfield with 4Ds, the good boys D (Barella, Sensi), The Nerd D (Eric) the bad boys D (9G, Brozo and Vidal) and the retards D (gags and Vecino).

    I rate Kante, but this rumour about us offering Brozovic + Skriniar for Kante is a bit too much. Maybe if we get Kante + Alonso or Azpilicueta, I could live with it.

    I would rate Conte growing a second set of hairs on his head alongside his transplant as more likely

    "Con" in Italian means with. GdS ran a headline a few weeks back of "Kante CONte" or "Kante with Conte." Hopefully this quenches your thirst.
