    Bastoni certainly needs a rest but i don't know if i am ready to watch Kolarov as LCB again after the disasterclass of the first matches. I don't want Kolarov anywhere near the starting lineup but if he has to play i certainly prefer him on the left wing where he is less dangerous.

    Wait I thought this was the fiorentina thread need to fucking rotate
    Too early for a prediction. We had a match on Sunday and there was no training yesterday. We will know more during the day and especially tomorrow morning.

    Could be a humiliation incoming if we play all these bench eaters.
    I'm sure Fiorentina will play their best line-up possible and their keeper will play the match of his life.

    Expecting Vidal or Barella to play another 90 minutes and then Conte to complain about them being tired after the Juve game.
    Awaiting the start of our youth project.

    What's with all the lousy match threads?

    If I wanted to find out when an Inter game starts I always checked the first post of a match thread. Now I have to look on sites like www.inter.it.

    You can install the FotMob app on your cellphone and turn on Inter's notifications to remind you about the game time, line-ups and all the other aspects of the game.

    Sky says we're seeing:

    Handanovic
    Skriniar-Rano-Kolarov
    Young-Vidal-Eriksen-Sensi-Perisic
    Sanchez-Lautaro

    I meaaan...I'm looking forward to seeing what Eriksen can do there and it'd be nice for Sensi to start a game, but that backline is a horror show. We do need to rotate, so it is what it is.

    Eriksen will play in front of the defense...

    Conte on Eriksen in November:
    - Crede che in futuro Eriksen possa giocare da play basso alla Pirlo?
    - No, credo di no. La miglior dote di Christian è il calcio verso la porta con entrambi i piedi, se lo abbassi gliela togli e rischi di snaturarlo. Questo è il mio giudizio tecnico, da allenatore, e credo che il giudizio dell’allenatore sia più importante di quello dato da chi se lo immagina diversamente”.

    Journalist: Do you believe that in the future Eriksen could play deep like Pirlo?
    Antonio Conte: No, I do not believe so. The best thing about Eriksen is that he can shoot at goal with both feet (), if you take that away you are risking of distorting him. This is my technical opinion, as his coach and I believe that the coach's judgment is far more important than those who imagine different things.


    Conte on Eriksen in January:
    <<Abbiamo avuto tempo per lavorare con lui su una nuova posizione da playmaker, da regista al posto di Brozovic. Mi aspetto grandi risposte da lui in questa posizione.>>

    We had time to work with him in a new playmaking position, the position that Brozovic occupies. I am expecting great response from him in that position.



    Not sure if he's trolling us or if he's trying to pretend he's not stubborn

    It's a win-win for Conte regardless. If Eriksen impresses then it's all good, Conte gets the credit for unlocking him... and if Eriksen fails, then Conte gets the heat off his back because he gave Eriksen a shot and he wasted it.

    I'm sure he still thinks it's a waste of his offensive qualities (and it is). But it's probably the position Eriksen can perform best in our set-up. The less the direct pressure around him and the more space he can operate from, the better. We'll see, I don't expect him to suddenly start benching Brozovic and staying anyway .

    The only other player we'd probably play in that spot (that isn't passe-partout Barella) is Sensi, and he's playing as well. I wouldn't put too much though into it. Doubt it will be something consistent.

    As did Cassano, which Conte did not take well I've always thought Eriksen and Brozo get in each other's way, it's a shame I'll only be able to watch this in snippets at work as I'm really interested to see how this goes.

    Yep, exactly this. After all this time you start him but you play him as DM

    There's no fucking way it'll work in any illuminating manner. That is to say, I'll eat my fucking hat if at the end of the game, our response is "wow, Eriksen at DM, what a revelation! This is the start of something special."

    He'll sit a bit deeper, make tons of short passes to the shitters in his immediate vicinity and maybe attempt some long balls or forward passes if the opportunity arises. Defensively, he has always covered a ton of ground, but it's generally very light lateral screening. He won't be making any Brozovic-like sliding tackles and he's hardly a defensive lynchpin so I hope we can defend better as a unit for a change.

    Ironically, the one time he gets to play in a distributor role, the one guy who can really benefit in Hakimi, is not even playing
