    Cruz's Inter future

    Ok, after Cannavaro, it's Cruz's thread. And may be, I won't start a new thread for other players beyond this, coz these two players' situation is a bit different from others', who are rumoured to leave.

    What do you guys think of Cruz ??

    Do we really need Cruz ??

    I was kinda thinking abt this for sometime, and I guess it won't be a bad decision by the management if we sell Cruz for good $$. Why ?

    Vieri
    Adriano
    Recoba
    Martins
    Ventola

    And not to forget Zicu ?? What about Choutos (?)

    Isn't that enough ?? Cruz has showed us what he can do if he gets to play regularly. Sadly, that might not be the case, coz I very much doubt he wud get to play regularly. And don't forget that Choutos injury in the friendly match cud mean that it wud be difficult to loan/trade him. When Kallon was sold, I had thought that Cruz wud definitely be staying in Inter, but things seem to be different now. The most surprising was the decision not to play Cruz in Champs League qualifier as a sub, whereas Ventola was played instead. I think that, there's atleast slight chance that Cruz might not figure in Mancini's plan, especially coz Cruz might not be a player to be kept in bench regularly.

    Usually, every team has 3/4 good strikers, and without Cruz, we already have 4 quality strikers. Ventola/Choutos cud be our 5/6th striker. May be that shud be enough.

    Well, that's how I think.

    Adriano - Ronaldo - Shevchenko - D.Piero - Totti - Eto
    Vieri - Raul - Crespo - Trezeguet - Cassano - Ronaldinho
    Martins - Owen - Inzaghi - Miccoli - Monetella - Larsson
    Recoba - Morientes - Tomasson - ????? - Gilar/? - Saviola/?

    Isn't 4 quality strikers + 5th striker like Ventola enough ?? And even Choutos - 6th striker ??

    I'm one of those who prefer Cruz over Ventola. I think Cruz will act as a good backup, when we don't have enough strikers, maybe due to injury or suspension or whatever. I would rather Ventola leave, then Cruz.

    I would prefer Ventola because

    1. he is younger
    2. he really loves the black and blue shirt
    3. and he gives absolutely everything when he plays for us, he is very determined not that cruz isnt but with Ventola its something special, he is like a son for us!

    I like Cruz ass wel but my preference would go to Ventola

    "He is one of the best forwards I have met this year. In my opinion he can become one of the world's greatest players. He already has enormous qualities."

    We are discussing abt Cruz, not if we need 6 strikers or not.

    Just simple question : Do we need Cruz, or could we sell him ?

    Sell him, of course. In no particular order; Adriano, Recoba, Martins & Vieri should be our forwards. May I ask, is there a deadlier left-footer gang?

    Nope I do not think we should offload Cruz. Since I want him to be our fifth striker in the pecking order.

    Adriano
    Martins or Vieri
    Martins or Vieri
    Recoba
    Cruz
    Eliakwu

    I believe 5 strikers is enough for Inter. Eliakwu should be the fifth striker. It't not as if he's totally unproven since he took the Primavera world by storm last season. I'm confident that he will have the same effect to Inter like Martins. Hence, I believe Cruz should be sold because all he is doing is to hinder Eliakwu's growth.

    And besides, Mancini used 4-3-3 in some of the pre-season training. That kind of formation only requires one striker. We can always use this in case of emergency.

    Hm... I shall not feel content about playing 4-3-3 against Milan or Juve. Also we have 3 games a week pretty often.

    And I do not believe Cruz will hinder Eliakwu at all. If Aly proves better than Cruz Mancini will field him. If not Cruz will play. Inter win.

    I favor Cruz over both Ventola and Choutos. Plus I consider Zicu a midfielder.

    C.R.U.Z =====> OUT!!!!!

    I've said enough of him being very lucky to even be wearing an Inter jersey. Well, it doesn't mean so much now cos it seems as though anyone can play for Inter now that Miha has joined us yet i want to see Cruz leave for our sake and for his sake. I believe he can get regular first team action for "lower" clubs rather than rot on Inter's bench
    Its been a pleasure,

    Depth. We have 38 Serie A games + CL/UEFA + Coppa Italia. Add that to the fact that Serie A has been destined to start in September.

    Because we are Inter. Injury nightmares is our trademark. Plus I did not imply that we need 8 strikers. I will quote myself!

    Adriano
    Martins or Vieri
    Martins or Vieri
    Recoba
    Cruz
    Eliakwu
    That is six strikers.

    But the point is, what's Cruz's opinion on this one ?? Is he ready to be 5th striker in Inter or wud he prefer to be 2nd/? striker in Roma or ??

    You never know. It all depends on Cruz and the offer we get for Cruz.

    I do not care what Cruz thinks of being 5th choice! If we cannot convince him to accept it we will simply keep Ventola instead, and hence sell Cruz to the highest bidder.
