    Do You Ever Give Up?

    I was reading the Lazio v Inter thread last night and finding it very depressing. I would like to see which of you feel the same way about Inter and being a fan. Therefore I made up this test.

    This is not about who's the better fan, it's just about what kind of fan you are. Are you a die-hard fan? Do you ever give up? Do you have a more distant and analytical approach?

    Questions:

    1) If Inter lose, do you feel angry instead of disappointed/sad? YES = 1 point NO = 0 points

    2) If Inter lose, is your first reaction to find somebody to blame? YES = 1pt NO = 0 pts

    3) Do you ever switch off the TV/Internet during an Inter game because 'you had enough'? YES = 1 pt NO = 0 pts

    4) Do you ever start watching a game with a negative attitude because you don't agree with the line-up? YES = 1 pt NO = 0 pts

    5) Do you feel affection for our players and would you try to defend them against critics if at all possible? YES = 0 pts NO = 1 pt

    6) Do you believe in the Mancini project? YES = 0 pts NO = 1 pt

    7) Do you criticise Inter more often than you support them? YES = 1pt NO = 0 pts

    8) Will you always give Inter a chance even if you strongly disagree with the line-up/tactics and support them with all you've got from the 1st to the 90th minute? YES = 0 pts NO = 2 pts


    I would get 0 points on this test, I'd like to know what would you get.

    Im probably one of the ones like Frisko, but at times a little more aggressive.

    Just because a player like Martins fu%ked up easy chacnes againt lazio, everybody will blame those misses on Miha.

    "Damn u Miha and Mancini for those misses"

    Re: Do You Ever Give Up?

    1) If Inter lose, do you feel angry instead of disappointed/sad?
    It depends, obviously. If we lost a match we could and should easily have won, for example the Lecce 2-2 Inter debacle in 04/05 Serie A, then I'm angry. If we lose because Mancini's crazy experiment, for example; 4-3-3 in 2nd leg of EuroDerby II, Pizarro & Veron together in Renzo Barbera, benching Samuel & J.Zanetti to allow Matrix & Miha to play; then I'm furious. If we really deserve to lose despite playing our best, then yes, I'm sad, disappointed & can't wait to cheer the team for the next match.

    2) If Inter lose, is your first reaction to find somebody to blame?
    Unless it's Mancini's decision, which we usually find before the kickoff, then no, I don't.

    3) Do you ever switch off the TV/Internet during an Inter game because 'you had enough'?
    Once. Our first Derby Della Madoninna in 03/04 when we lost 1-3. When Shevchenko scored Milan's 3rd goal, I just switched off the TV and jump into a chasm of sadness, despair & anger.

    4) Do you ever start watching a game with a negative attitude because you don't agree with the line-up?
    If by negative attitude you mean pessimism, then yes. If you mean by not wishing the team to win, then of course not!

    5) Do you feel affection for our players and would you try to defend them against critics if at all possible?
    It depends on whether the degree of the criticism and whether the player/team really deserve it.

    6) Do you believe in the Mancini project?
    Currently, after the draw against Lazio, honestly no. But in a few days, I am optimistic that I will believe in it again.

    7) Do you criticise Inter more often than you support them?
    No.

    8) Will you always give Inter a chance even if you strongly disagree with the line-up/tactics and support them with all you've got from the 1st to the 90th minute?
    Well of course. I don't support just the coach, tactics or players, but most importantly, I support the club that is Inter.


    I don't know how many points should I get, Frisko. Be the judge.

    No offense Frisko, but your test is kinda bs. As a fan, I'm a die-hard fan, still I won't accept anything. I support the club, but I don't have to like every player, coach, member of staff if they are/might be bad for Inter.

    Getting 0 points from your test, means to me, that you have to be one of those "blind fans" that accept anything without critisism. Even if someone loves Inter more than life, you have to be able to critisize if something is wrong.

    Re: Do You Ever Give Up?

    1) If Inter lose, do you feel angry instead of disappointed/sad?
    It depends on the occassion. It is difficult to sum up my feelings of lost matches based on 2 extreme modes of emotions. However, i'm more often sad than angry. Therefore, this should be a NO.

    2) If Inter lose, is your first reaction to find somebody to blame?
    NO. My first reaction is to question how on earth i ended up supporting this team.

    3) Do you ever switch off the TV/Internet during an Inter game because 'you had enough'?
    I've only done this once in my life - the 6-0 defeat by Milan. However, i switched off the TV because i was too distraught to carry on watching the team. If what i understand by 'having had enough' meaning to be completely frustrated with the result, then my answer is NO.

    4) Do you ever start watching a game with a negative attitude because you don't agree with the line-up?
    NO. Hope springs eternal.

    5) Do you feel affection for our players and would you try to defend them against critics if at all possible?
    YES of course. Although i try to rationalize and comprehend all points of an argument, my emotional attachment to my favorite players often leads me to take their side in debates.

    6) Do you believe in the Mancini project?
    YES. Or more accurately - i still do.

    7) Do you criticise Inter more often than you support them?
    NO. My critical thoughts are often jokes about the team. However, i am more supportive of them than negatively critical.

    8) Will you always give Inter a chance even if you strongly disagree with the line-up/tactics and support them with all you've got from the 1st to the 90th minute?
    YES. If i disagree with the lineup, even strongly so, those feelings would dissipate within the first few minutes of the game. Once Inter kick off, the team is all that matters, not my thoughts.


    I've got 3 points. What's the census for anyway?
