Coach number 3 since The Special One to struggle with our treble winning squad, Moratti and Branca get defended to death, even after they weakened the squad for a second time in a row, and the coach is once again blamed and is deemed an idiot.. What's new? Ohh!! We have a formation to blame for our short comings! Am I too believe that an experienced team of World Champions, can only play well in ONE formation and under ONE tactic? Is it really FTRMTITBaootw?! (Fuck The Rest Mourinho's Tactic Is The Best and only one that works)
The problem is definitely the coach, forget the lack of sufficient investment, combined with astronomically high expectations.. WE ARE MOTHAFUCKIN' WORLD CHAMPIONS AFTER ALL!!!!!!!ONE!!111!!!ELEVEN!!! <--- Hmmm that sounds familiar does it not? Ohh yeah Berlusconi.. The parallels between us now and Milan then are glaring some of us in the face... Yet, some of you here are so deluded and actually believe that our current squad can compete for the Scudetto, because we still have some of the treble winners remaining... And now, because of that delusion, some of you have interpreted the loss versus Palermo as us being a good -- no GREAT! team, that is just being coached wrongly.. Bielsa rejected us for Bilbao, Mourinho ran far and fast after we won, same goes for Leonardo...
It's okay though, Moratti and Co. are preparing for the FFP! Forget about having a good team, forget about building on anything that Jose created, let's jsut buy tons and tons of players and to make up for that let's sell our best players.. Sneijder's next btw, guys.. I can't wait to be ready for the FFP! Fuck actually being good enough to compete with the best, as long as we're there right? We all enjoyed Inter 2 -5 Schalke at the Meazza right? And in Serie A, let's ignore the fact that we're hypocrites for mocking Milan for being a team of old men a few years ago even though we played a match with a defense which had an average age of 35 years old (and our back up defenders are only a few years younger, save Mr. Froggley)..
Was Carlo Ancelotti, who led Milan to 2 Champions Leagues, and 3 finals, and idiot when he led Milan to a 5th place finish? It was clear that his team was just too old and just not good enough, but what did Galliani and Berlusconi do? What did they say? WE ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS!!!!ONE!!!11!!.. You would think with this happening so soon, that our management would know better, you would think that after seeing how Barcelona or Manchester United, acted after winning Eruope's most illustrious trophy that our management would know better, you would think that it would be common sense, to know what to do after winning a UCL, but apparently, Moratti lost his Copy of Uefa Champions League Winning For Dummies, when he collected that medal on May 22nd, 2010..
And now the fans, well the ones I interact with, you guys have taken an ultimate black and white stance.. If one speaks ill of Moratti, no matter how objectively, they are immediately labelled an ungrateful, gloryhunter. There is no question that Moratti loves this club, and has given his entire life to it, but I'm still in shock at how in less than one-fifth of a decade that he was able to bring a major Italian football club to annual loses of more than the entire budget of about a quarter of the world's countries.. But here's the part which blows my fucking mind!
We don't even owe a dime, or even a penny of debt! Jose once asked and answered, "what is the difference between a dream and an obsession? A dream is more pure than an obsession." Well, Moratti's quest for the Champions League, certainly was not a dream, it was a bloody obsession that has pretty much run this club down to the ground long term, in exchange for short term gratification, and that ends in under 100 days, when we relinquish our title as world champions.
AND THEN WHAT?!
Where do we go from there? We are led to believe that we have a plethora of talented youth, yet they get destroyed 7-1 by Tottenham in the Next Gen Series.. Year after year we insist on purchasing over the hill players -- that just won't depart us when we need them to (that includes Diego Forlan who will be in his mid-30s costing us a net 8 million euros a season when his contract ends), paying them disgustingly high wages, and playing them over our young fresh players who seem promising but are never even given a chance to show that. Obi is skilled in playing in the middle of the pitch, yet we continue to show insistence on first Kharja and now Kucka.. Santon is gone ... Castagios will never see action, until an injury crisis hits, same goes for Fararoni who showed extreme promise in the pre-season. I want to believe that our management knows what it's doing but its hard.. from the sale of Eto'o at that price to the bid for Palacio to the snubbing of Vidal, to the mismanagement of the clubs finances..
There is so much wrong with this team right now, and I fear our immediate and long term future, unless some drastic changes are made! What's for certain though, is that the second installment of Le Grande Inter is over, and by the looks of things, I wouldn't be surprised if it takes another 4 decades for it to come again.. Until it reaches though, I hope you all will continue join me in singing...
