If we do not finish second and at least save some face from ANOTHER disappointing season then I think that Mancini will have to go, hopefully no one will be fooled into thinking that if we win the coppa italia that some how it has been a good season.
Juve and Milan would not settle for 3rd and coppa italia, teams like Udinese/Fiorentina/Roma (at the moment) might feel that it has been a good season, but we are Inter, not the all-so-rans. Moratti has to decide where he wants us to be, does he want us to be competing properly at the top for the scudetto or champions league or trying to sneak into the champions league qualifiers (which does not guarantee group stage).
If we do not finish second I think that Juve and Milan will pull further away unfortunately as no real top player is likely to want to sign for a team that sneaks 3rd place and wins a tin pot cup, they will choose a team that will be in the top 2 and with a real chance of winning CL.
We had also better start looking over our shoulders, Fiorentina will be stronger next season as will Roma, CL football may not be guarnateed, and this could see us in the shit as the wages and transfers we pay are based on us qualifying, Moratti will only bail us out for so long.
If we need a new manager, do not get one just because he is friends with the players, get him because he is the best.
As for players, we are allowed to sign players that have not played for Lazio/Argentina/Brazil. Sign players that are champions, not based on where they come from. Sign players with hunger, desire, passion, a belief in Inter, if they come just for the money tell them to **** off back to where they came from, I want players who want to incrase their medals, not their bank balance.
We need 4 great players for every part of the team (keeper, defender, midfielder, striker). Do not sign players like Wome, they are triers but they are for teams like Messina, Chievo, Parma, not Inter.
For the players and manager there next season, whoever you are, please win us the league, do it for yourself, do it for us, do it for Inter and you will be heroes forever.
