10 - Will be one of the absolutely best players in the history of the game (think Meazza, Matheus)
9 - Will be one of the club legends, and become one of the best players in the world of their era
8 - A player of very good quality, who will add much to the team, one of the best nationalwise
7 - Good player, a valuble asset of a team, one of the 10-15 best on his position in the country
6 - Above average player, who will be usefull, but will never be a key player for a team
5 - Completely average player
4 - Below average, not a disaster, but would be better if we didn't sign him in the first place
3 - Anonymous player who will never be remembered through the fact nobody expected anything from him
2 - Close to a useless player, who will add nothing to the team besides filling the CL quota
1 - Crap, shit, useless player, worst buisness ever, Mancini, Quaresma and Gresko combined
Not gonna cry a river cos he has never really lived up to his expectation
Doesn't mean I won't go bonkers that we are selling him while keeping farking deadweights in the team
We've sold a large piece of our recent past in Sneijder and are now selling our potential future in Coutinho...all throughout this one Winter transfer window. Like was mentioned above what this represents is the truth in our management's lack of a true plan for the future. Its fucking tragically poetic and sad and most of all pathetic.

Trying to look at this from a Coutinho perspective. Can anyone think of a player like Coutinho who has thrived in England?
Look at the former players thread right now. But anyway let's make a fifth one as well
- former players ( Crespo, Veron, ...)
- crap players ( Muntari, Quaresma, Mancini, ...)

Nevermind my sarcastic idea of 4 threads for former players

I have a feeling Stramaccioni won't be coaching Inter for much longer. Given how we play bad football and his results not being spectacular at all I don't see him sticking around for a long time, maybe another season or two at most.
Pro-management members were always fast to point out that Moratti has finally started to listen to his coaches wishes for once with Stramaccioni. In theory that's a great thing but I ask myself when exactly did earn the right to make huge calls and not be questioned about it. Seriously, what the fuck has he done so far in his career to be trusted like this?
Can Coutinho make it at the highest level remains to be seen but the club is basically making a choice between a potentially great player for the next 10 years and the -soon to out- coach who is craving for cl spot.
Very short sighted but also completely expected and completely Inter-like.
Oh please Cou proves me wrong.

Liverpool FC agree £8.5m deal to sign Brazilian Philippe Coutinho from Internazionale
Jan 26 2013Comments (11)
LIVERPOOL FC have agreed a fee of just under 10million Euros (£8.5million) with Inter Milan to sign midfielder Philippe Coutinho.
The breakthrough follows a week of lengthy negotiations with the Serie A outfit after the Reds' initial offer of 6million Euros (£5million) was rejected.
Liverpool are confident their application for a work permit for the 20-year-old Brazil international will be granted and he's expected to arrive on Merseyside for a medical early next week.
Southampton, whose new boss Mauricio Pochettino worked with Coutinho during his loan spell at Espanyol last season, were also in the hunt for his signature and had a 12million Euros (£10million) offer accepted.
However, Liverpool's hand was strengthened when Coutinho informed Inter he had no interest in joining Saints and that his heart was set on a move to Anfield.
The Reds' improved bid of 9million Euros (£7.6million) on Wednesday was turned down but further talks over the past 24 hours after reached a successful conclusion.
Blessed with pace and technically gifted, the versatile youngster can play in central midfield, out wide or in the No 10 role as a second striker.
Boss Brendan Rodgers has been keen to add to the £12million signing of striker Daniel Sturridge earlier this month and believes Coutinho fits the bill.
The Brazilian, who began his career at Vasco da Gama in his homeland, was sold to Inter for 4million euros at the age of 16 in 2008.
He remained at Vasco on loan for a further two years and made his full international debut in 2010 in a friendly against Iran. That remains his only cap.
Coutinho finally moved to Inter in July 2010 and made his debut a month later in the UEFA Super Cup final against Atletico Madrid.
After finding his opportunities limited, he spent the second half of last season on loan at Espanyol and he impressed in Spain, scoring five goals in 16 league appearances.
This season Coutinho has grown frustrated at once again being on the fringes of the Inter squad and he's ready to make a fresh start at Anfield.
Inter Management. Just resign
