Calm down! Remember how many new players we have, they still need to know each other and get used to each other. It's only natural that there is room for improvement. They just need to play TOGETHER as a TEAM. Time will get us that chemistry.

Let us not forget that by choosing Strama as our coach in the first place and keeping him means that we were looking for the future, and this means that we cant rush things out. He is learning and our team is still under-construction.

I have already gave 2-3 years for this team to reach the peak and to have the required mentality and abilities to fight for the top place. These things take time. And I expect that there will be another failures on the road, but it`s all the price we have to take under the main harsh circumstances to rebuild our team and make it stronger like before. and despite having the lot of funancial problems besides losing most of our team`s backbones and important players who had a lot of influence in our playing style. this team however is on the right road, we dont have a mess, we have excellent players in almost every positions, who just need alot of time playing together, and a coach who needs atleast a full season in the top flight to learn from his won mistakes.

Ive been with Strama since day one and I`ll remain on this point of view for years to come, cause I believe in him and in the new players we have now.

Everybody needs to take a chill pill. 3 reasons why we lost IMO:

1) We were just out coached by Zeman. Strama is young and inexperienced and it's normal. Only way he can learn.
2) Silvestre+Castelazzi defending. :palm:
3) A lot of new players who haven't played many games (if all) together.

We are moving from a team with a defensive mentality to one with an attacking one. It is not going to happen in 1 month.

We are building a new team, of course it needs time. And of course we will lose some matches.
I don't expect us to win the scudetto, the only thing I want to see is a progress in the next months and us be in the top 4 positions.
I trust in Strama and I feel he is doing a great job, he is building something totally new and even Mancini could not win the scudetto in his first year, and he had much much more money to build a new team.
Let us all be patient and don't say "everything is bad", "fuck this and that"...

We had 4 coaches in the last 2 years, does anyone here think the coach is the problem?
We are building a NEW team, and the season is only 2 games old. We will improve soon...

Correction. We had 5 coaches in 2 years.

Yeah. Even if we do BADLY need the CL money, it's up to the management to decide what's the best path for the club. And seriously, there might even not be a path to choose which would be sacking Strama and picking another coach who would definitely lead us to the CL spot.

To me, Strama will be with us for AT LEAST this and next season, no matter what.

Are you even capable of making a post that isn't a cheap shot at Zanetti? You seem to have an agenda here tbh.
agenda no i just want what is best for inter. best for inter is we are going to play offensive football is to get attacking right back and put jz on the bench

We have attacking LB. And playing with two offensive full backs is baaaaad idea.

Roma is actually also going through a rebuilding phase, and they had players who were younger than ours. Just a little perspective :)

But I don't think we were outwitted by Zeman; in fact, Roma's defence looked worse than ours. We were, however, up against an inspired Totti and he was simply brilliant. His cross to that new kid was inch perfect, and that through-ball was...breathtaking.

Strama 0 Totti 1

Which is why I simply do not buy the "we are a new team" BS. Every team is a new team. Juve were a new team last year. Roma is new. Fiorentina is CRAZY new with a new coach and a new first team. Atletico were a new team under Simeone last year. As was Bilbao.

The key though is, though these teams are new, imo, the identity is clear. How they WANT TO PLAY is clear. Or more specifically, how they want to defend and attack is clear. They do not have 100% synchronization yet, but it is clear what they are trying to do.

With strama, it is not clear whatsoever. The only thing that is clear is that he likes possession football. Can anybody tell me how strama wants us to defend? High line? Zone? Low press? High press? WE DON'T KNOW. Can anybody tell me how strama wants to attack? Direct? Wing play? Overlap? Quick combinations? Overload + switch? WE DON'T KNOW.

This is not a surprise to me at all though. Football is not a mystery or rocket science. You execute what you train and like I said earlier in this thread, based on my limited viewings of training done this pre-season, I was APPALLED at the content of our training and that is indicative of what we've been doing.

So while some are assuming strama is going to "develop" and whatever other vague terminology that you want to use, I will be looking at our training sessions. If it's the same garbage as pre-season, then I know what's coming for us.

We have some good players on the team, so even with mediocre training content, they can excel and still win games. But in the tight/tough games, I won't be hoping for miracles.

N4L you may be correct, but I'm going to reinforce rockball's post a few lines up. The mentality of the club is shifting in 180 degrees. Would you not agree that last year or for the last few years with the exception of Leonardo and the 3 games of Gasperini, this club has been fairly defensive minded?


I feel like shifting the spectrum to an attack minded play style is the reason this team does not look as fluid as it should. Roma has always been attack minded IMO which is why their "new" team is comfortable adopting these tactics. For us though, it seems to be just a little tougher. Idk maybe its bullshit, but its my 2 cents

BS? If that`s BS then Im a Unicorn.

Roma was so comfortable playing this match even with new players, cause their philosophy didnt change. add to that the new man on the bench who is all his life work was based on the same philosophy of that club. attacking like hell. I see Zeman and Roma are a perfect combination. a perfect match, or brothers of the same mother and father, or like Israel and USA. you get the point.

While on the other hand, we are changing roots, we are making fundaMENTAL changes. As I said it take time to adapt to these new major changes.

@ N4L, Strama might seem to not knowing of what exactly he wants, that`s because, and there is no shame of saying this, he is still testing, and until he finds the perfect combination out of our current squad which will lead of deciding the most suitable playing style and tactical system, it definitely going to take time. But I trust with the help of Mourinho he might get it all figured with the more official games he plays and that he`ll get all of our key players available and 100% fit.

Doesn't excuse the fact that his training methods are apparently unforgivably rudimentary. I'm not saying that n4l's word is law, nor am I dismissing it, but even in my high school football team we practiced set attacking moves and looked to replicate these in matches. If Strama doesn't then..?

Garvin Maye,

Are you still watching the training sessions? I for one hope the early pre-season shows you watched were merely introduction/fitness type training and now we are focussing rigorously on offence.


One other possibility may be that Strama is focussing on defence first before worrying about offence. But seeing our defence on the weekend tells me otherwise...

I still watch whatever ROARInter and INTER post on youtube everyday. During pre-season, the clips were much longer and covered all the components of the sessions. The first week was mostly fitness, but after that, there were tactical exercises. As I said before, those exercises focused mostly on building up possession from the defense.

The clips now are much more condensed and therefore, I don't want to assume that the condensed version encompasses everything that is being done. I know milan tv shows (or at least, used to) their whole training session (full 90min) but I'm not sure if inter channel does the same.

I can't say he's been working on defending/defense in pre-season because during his in-game freezes (very few of them tbh), he focused on the players with possession.

rioma match i was shocked to see Stramaccioni like lost dazed, he wasn't expecting it, he was clueless with substitutions didn't have a game-plan set. after 2-2 draw with FC Vaslui. I had the feeling we was in deepshit in serie a, and wtf happen we got trashed by rioma gays, tottinas titts.
Massimo Moratti is not pleased by strama, if he loses several more games his out the door.
