This is the real No pazza Inter

4 wins and 1 draw sound totally doable

Makes sense to pull Sensi out in order not to risk another injury. But not Eriksen and Sensi at the same time.

Kept Young & Sanchez on way too long. Simultaneously subbing in Gagliardini & Vecino had entirely predictable results.

Despite all that, good on him for starting Sensi & Eriksen. Starting Darmian was also a good call.

33 points out of 33 is no joke. He’s really instilled magic into the squad.

Have not watched the game (superstition reasons) but looking at the goal, it's something that Conte has always impressed me ever since his Juve days.

The way his team attack at times is just so organized/skirmished. It looks like a goal straight out of a training ground sessions. It's not just some random football improvisation/brilliance but something that the team worked on and grinded for many many times.

Sure it may blunt our attack and creativity but as I have said numerous times in this thread, this ain't the time to swag. This is the time to win.

Things should be balance.

Hakimi + Lautaro = Two good subs

Vecino + Gagliardini = Two bad subs

Everything should be balance, Conte know that.

Inter are the first side to have won each of the first 11 Serie A games played in the second half of a season, overtaking the record of AC Milan, 10 in 1989/90.

Vecino + 5G was awful idea indeed. Hakimi and Lautaro + shifting Darmian on the left was great move and won us the game.

Excellent game preparation and horrendous game management for today.

Conte is blameless at the first half. It is not his fault if most of our players do not turn up for the match. Darmian seems hasn't playing football for 2 years, Young is mediocre at best, Lukaku cannot find space, and Alexis is closer to become their defender than to our attacker. Our strategy largely overwhelms Cagliari, see how our players understand their role and movement leading to the goal. We only suffer little trouble when we approach final third and Pavoletti wins individual physical duel against Bastoni but that's it.

The second half should incense every Interista. It is clear Alexis and Darmian are not in the game at all while we have superior Lautaro and Hakimi sitting on the bench. Then we choose to hunker down in the last 10 minutes with Gags and Vecino double subbed on. At least Conte can sub on Vidal instead of Gagscino because the former is much better defensively.

When Vecino and RG5 entered, I simply knew he wants the team to suffer for scoring only once in 77 mins.

Otherwise, he set the team up well.

The guys have been playing every 3 days for the last 3 weeks or something so I wasn’t expecting another great game today and Conte needs to manage the players to avoid injuries. Hopefully he’ll give the guys a day or two off and give the players some rest ahead of napoli.

First the "Ti amo!" and now this. If I were Hakimi's gf I'd start worrying.

Broke Sacchis Grande Milan record of 89/90 who had 10 wins in return matches. Some of the absolute legendary players were in that team.

Conte took this record with Darmian goal .

As far as I'm concerned Conte has won the Scudetto.


Juventus turned out to be much worse than expected this year but this has nothing to do with Conte. Its clear he knows how to win the hard-fought gritty games that win league titles.

Having an absent ownership proved helpful in the Scudetto run. A serious management would have reprimanded Conte for failing in Europe, but instead they just let everything be and in the long run, this allowed the team to focus on the Scudetto. A lot of frustration, but results have gone mostly our way, so he deserves credit for handling the Europe disaster well.
