I haven't been that active sharing my opinions of the past three months, so here's my nickel...
At last our coach situation has been confirmed and Mancio replaced Zaccheroni, who turned out to be nothing but disappointment. He wasn't given that good chance in the first place, signed during the season after Cuper's strong influence (I still think we should've kept Don Hector), but giving another season to Zac would've been a waste.
I really don't think Mancio is a rainmaker, in fact I'm not sure he was the best possible choice, but at least he has potential and I'm sure we'll be playing entertaining football (so at least we get something, even if we don't win). It's just that only recently I've been bothered by Mancini's effect on our transfers.
The transfers right... I don't know what Moratti has been eating or has he only now found the paradise of the Bosman ruling. To me the only sensible transfers has been buying Burdisso. And in fact I would've signed Ferrari instead of him in a blink of an eye. He's a proven defender in Serie A and even an ex-nerazzurro.
I've always disliked Davids and furthermore hated Mihajlovic and actually getting Sinisa has made Mancio look bad in my eyes. Ever since I've started supporting Inter over 15 years ago, Mihajlovic is by far the most disgusting player we've signed. I truly hope he doesn't play a single minute. Every now and then we've bought players that I have disliked, but this summer has been extraordinary Miha, Davids and Veron... Well getting Veron the good thing is that it's a loan deal and we can get rid of him. It was just a sign of distrust towards Emre to get Veron.
In other buyings Cambiasso can turn out to be a good signing, though we are extremely well covered in that department. Favalli is a good player, whom we actually didn't need unless we are going to send Pasquale on loan or even worse selling Coco, without actually giving him a proper chance. Ze Maria is really a player we didn't need at all and I only feel sorry for him, because he's gonna waste next season on our bench, when instead he could've been ruling in Perugia's right flank. He's a great player, way too good to be a backup. Signing Choutos was just waste of time and I hope we send him somewhere ASAP.
All in all, I envy Roma, not because they had major names leaving the side, but because they signed fantastic players. I mean Ferrari, Perrotta and Mexes. Juve has signed great players too Emerson (though he turned out to be an a$$hole) and Mutu (if it's true, one great ex-nerazzurro more...). At the same time Moratti's Flying Circus has managed to provide another disappointment during the summer. I guess some things just never change.
We still have an enormous squad and we should diminsh it to 25 players to get a better team harmony and more chances for everyone to play. I guess Farinos, Lamouchi and Adani are the first to leave. I'm not gonna miss the midfielders, but Adani has turned out to be a real hero and his dedication to the team has been exceptional. I hate to see him leave, especially when he was the 3rd choice in my pecking order in our central defenders. I think he's better than Matrix, don't get me wrong Matrix is a true nerazzurro too, but for some reason I've started to think that he's not that good on the pitch.
The expectations for the next season are to get this squad to play like a true team, I really think we're not gonna win scudetto next spring. Let's give this team time, let's finally stop the circus and start to act like a real football team, at least after we've signed yet another Laziale (Cesar, another player we don't need). Then when the team is ready they will bring the glory to us, I just don't know anymore whether to shout "Forza Inter" or "Forza Lazio"...
