We need him back, but Suning must sell Inter first to PIF.

he is cautious about getting too connected to any club. I notcied he replies to fans' comments on his instagram page, but never does so when a comment contains black and blue colors.
That is because deep down, no matter what, his first and only love is Juventus. And winning a Championship with Inter was never going to change that.

Maybe, but with conte at least the players had some discipline and more or less everyone knew what they need to do..
Honestly i really like inzaghi, but we can see ther is no discipline and the players just going forward without any attacking plan and also leave huge holes in our defense..

If he didn't leave himself, I'd be nostalgic. But he didn't want a more challenging role.

I can't blame him when the likes of Man United or now Newcastle waving their money

I swing between a strong dislike and sadness when it comes to Antonio Conte.

I feel angry about the empty words and gestures that followed winning the championship and the manner in which Conte left. When it comes to the club, I feel sad when I look at how things were, the solid foundations that were established and how things now stand.

One persistent thought that I had during the opening eight weeks of the season is that the importance of a coach should never be underestimated. Just like the contribution of a player like Lukaku can not be discounted in the role he played for the team.

Yes, Conte decided to leave but Suning's appointment of Simone Inzaghi was a formation hire. Based on what we have seen so far, there is not much substance to Inzaghi's appointment. Our owners were mistaken for thinking that they could lose Conte and continue in the same vain based simply on formation.

They failed to take into consideration that Inzaghi would not be able to motivate the team in the same way Conte did or at least accepted that it would be different. Not to mention the failure to replace players that made a valuable contribution last season.

We are a team that is a shadow of its former self. A team that lacks substance and cohesion that now looks dysfunctional in a 3-5-2. And perhaps the most disheartening part is that some of the frailties and attributes that were a large part of our play for the last decade are starting to reappear, as if last season was an anomaly. All the talk about Inter being strong was media hype. So too was talk from the club about being a main protagonist this season.

At management level, there has probably been a quiet revision of our goals for the season where the club will be happy with fourth place in the championship. Personally, I find it very difficult to accept winning the championship and then simply giving it up the following season.

We have clearly taken a backward step and will remain stuck in reverse until Suning no longer have a say in the management and ownership of the club.

More than anything, I think we need to accept that things are going to be different and not in a positive way or any way that we anticipated.

Think about this: if Conte stayed, Lukaku and Hakimi would still have gone. Inter's limited budget and contraints who besides Dzeko would he have demanded?

We probably would have gotten roughly the same record with a couple of clean sheets and another win instead of a tie maybe. The CL record would probably been the same, given his track record. The only difference would be another level of tension and anxiety cause Inter couldn't bring in replacements he wanted. Conte would eventually blow his stack and the press would be having a field day.

I liked him for the most part, and kinda understand why he left, because he felt betrayed in his mind. Obviously Inter wanted him gone else why pay him a lot of money to leave, rather than hold him to his contract. Sunning made a big mistake not selling the club right after winning the Scudetto if the financial situation was that dire.

I posted about towards the end of last season. I was of the view that it was the best time to sell but many posters felt it was too early due to: (1) Covid; (2) the fact that we would probably have to take a hit on our asking price; (3) finiding a new main sponsor; (4) fans not being in the stadium; and (5) the stadium project not being finalised.

Suning's asking price of a billion dollars is too much. By failing to sell, anmd not being ablke to adeqauately reinfoirce the squad, they will condemn us to a slow death and another decade of living in the shadows.

You are right about the points you raised in your post about Conte.

The cunt is hopeful of a phone call tomorrow morning.

Do we get a refund if he gets a job?

It looks like Conte to Man Utd is going to happen if they decide to part ways with Ole. I can't wait to see Sancho as a wingback :D

This Man Utd squad is incredibly unfit to Conteball.

Even people who don't appreciate Conte as coach would concede, I assume, he would be an upgrade compared to their current "coach". Almost anyone would be.

And they have wasted so much money on dumb stuff like CR7 why not on a 1st proper coach, for this level, post SAF?

I wonder if this current Man U edition may be too much for even him to get a handle on. Certainly not this season, anyway. Maybe he can get them in a europe spot.

They should have went for Conte when they fired Mourinho. That squad was perfect for Conte. But the current Man Utd squad is a bad fit for Conre. It will take time for Conte to mold Man Utd into his style and i don't know if they have the patience for it.

Conte is also a bad fit for Man Utd fans and what they expect to see. Conte's counter attacking style isn't going to be appreciated at Old Trafford and especially his preference towards experienced players.
