    Andy Van der Meyde lashes out at Inter...

    BRANCA ON VAN DER MEYDE

    Tuesday, 30 March 2004 18:56:48
    MILAN - (ANSA) - Totti in Milan to meet Massimo Moratti? "I wasn't there, in the sense that I don't know anything." Inter technical director Marco Branca spoke about rumours of Francesco Totti joining the Nerazzurri as "something which is reported every year", but maintains that also on this occasion there's no truth in the rumour, and for a simple reason. "In the current situation of Italian football such a transfer coup is not possible. I think it would be very difficult to buy Totti. This is my personal opinion, but this is how I think things stand."

    To tell the truth, Inter are one of the few clubs in Italy and abroad that would be able to afford to buy Totti, and Branca recently said that "an important player" would come to Milan. "I was referring to the fact that from the transfer market we will take what we can and what we need."

    Besides the rumours about Totti, the Nerazzurri environment was also animated by the words of Andy van der Meyde, who from Holland said he would "prefer to play in a Mickey Mouse championship rather than stay on the bench at Inter". Branca played down the Dutchman's declarations and explained that no disciplinary measures will be taken.

    "It's a strange year for everybody, him included," explained Branca. "As a club we are aware of this situation and we're also aware of the strength of van der Meyde, a player we're counting on for the future. So what he said in Holland isn't very important."

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    WHAT?!?!?!?!?! I donīt know what to think about this... Maybe Branca is right... But my spontaneous reaction is this:

    We donīt need a player with no dedication... He should be shown the door! It is a waste of talent for VDM to stay!

    Could the fact that nothing is going to be done to VDM by Inter means that they understand comletley what he is going through or is it because they see that there will be some kind of change

    Itīs just obvious that he would eventually complain. Thatīs what you get when you appoint a coach who refuse to use our better players and prefer Helveg.

    Its BS that Helveg is getting starts over Van der Meyde though the prob is our formation. Its not made for a winger like Van der Meyde. If we use the 3-4-3 then Van der Meyde can play upfront but he isn't really the type that can play a RW/B.

    Hopefully he will get more playing time at Helveg's expense

    Inter's disciplinary record is weird. First Toldo gets fined for saying the truth, then Vieri says he will pin Crespo's traders to the wall and gets nothing. It could go either way but i prefer him being fined to show an example to future disgruntlers.

    You want VDM as RWB/RM or RWB/LM??

    VDM hasnīt been used much because Zac has often opted for Cruz and Recoba... + He has had injury/fitness problems...

    After doing some serious thinking Iīve just come to the conclusion that either VDM accepts that he has to fight for his place in the team by fighting for his colours when he gets the chance and impressing Zac or he can go back to Ajax and play regularly there. His call...

    As always we donīt get much wiser by these official statements. But if Brancaīs attitude to Van Der Meyde is the official Inter attitude I think we might have made a mistake. However Inter might prove me wrong and Van der Meyde will be a key player in a Scudetto victory...

    I think you getting it wrong Gismo, he accepts the competition but can’t understand why he is always substituted.

    No. I remember when he complained about that substitute and went straight to bath. I expected him to get a fine for that one too. And what happened? Nothing...

    Doesnīt take a genius to realise that me mentioning Helveg wasnīt pointing on that I wanted him to play his positition.

    There are other formations we can use to fit in our better players at. Not a formation where we use players such as Helveg.

    Even if we played 4-4-2 it wouldnīt make any difference to me. To me it is an attitude problem.

    Letīs say hypothetically Zac fielded this team and you got to decide the "???" who would you pick if you had the whole team available?

    Toldo

    Cordoba - Materazzi - Cannavaro

    J. Zanetti - Stankovic - Emre - Kily

    ??? ??? ???

    When it comes to VDM I do feel a bit sorry for him. He seems a good player yet Zac either doesn’t rate him or just cant fit him in his system. He has suffered from the Zac situation, Mickey Mouse thing made me laugh, I hope he stays but at the mo I can’t see anything changin under Zac. How VDM must long for Cuper or anyone else. Unfortunately for VDM this often happens with new managers.

    It seems this is the lashing out week as Saha criticized VNistelrooy(The nerve on him) and Robert criticized the french coach for not including him while he inbcludes less talent like Cheyrou...To tell u the truth Robert is having an excellent season and should be in that squad or there is something really wrong...So its not just our VDM.

    He is a great player.
    Just let him play more.
    He can do great things for Inter if he gets his chance.
    He can become one off the star s off the team !

    HE is young and talented

    I think CZ comments on VDM were really wise and to the point...The thing is if Zac stays he has to be able to use the best players in a formation that should come first and not the formation before the best available players...He should be able to play 4-4-2 sometimes more effectively and or at least keep a player of VDM's talent somewhat happy in his own formation...

    If I'm a coach, I'd rather risk having an I-can't-defend Van Der Meyde as the right wing-back of my team rather than having He-can't-do-a-d@mn-thing-lveg. Well, other than the RWB position, IMO Van Der Meyde is much better than Cruz if he's used as the support striker. He's been performing well but isn't getting play time, that's the biggest problem. I certainly won't crictisize his attitude.

    The problem here isn't andy is that dumb coach who can't adapt and field his best players. Unless ZAC leaves(please let it be soo) andy will go.

    I am not so sure about Zac's departure and its consequences but i am sure that Andy's departure will be a disaster....I really hope h stays and is used more.

    Zach should be sacked !!

    I hope that inter management tells him that the coach will not be a problem next season (which wud mean that we wud have a new good coach) .... That way he might happily stay with us and ofcourse if he gets to play....

    Even if we would sign Capello, i doubt Van Der Meyde would be a regular. Itīs not that he suck or something, but we just have better players.

    You mean helveg is better than andy? Capello would defenitly have found a formation to include andy instead of that dead weight of helveg.
