in tactical terms, Dumfries would block fluidity and creativity of the game we try to built. Limiting our attacking choices with his inability to exploite right flank.

Anyway, in my opinion he have to step up, blend his brain into Inzaghi’s total football masterpiece asap. We’ve been too patient to wait him.

Or maybe plot twist is Inzaghi instructs him for deliberately being clumsy to make opponents loose on him so that he could hurt them with his thunderbird power unexpectedly.

He's on 3 goals and 2 assists at the moment, but he could definitely be on about 5+5. He's air balled/had saved a couple of glorious opportunities throughout the season, and Lautaro/Dzeko have missed/had saved some great balls by him.

Massively improved since the start of the season. Gotta admit, I wasn't anywhere near as patient with him as I should have been.

Whaaat?! Actually, the way how Inzaghi is using him, allows Dumfries to exploit the right flank. He attacks good the empty space, and the more he used to his teammates, the more he'll become more dangerous on the right.
For example, in the Lazio's match, in first 6-7 minutes, there were two chances for Lautaro to pass him the ball behind the defenders, but the latter chose a different decision. Which doesn't make Dumbfires availability bad or something.

yes, of course he is allowed to exploit the flank, however, he simply couldn't deliver. How can he exploit if he tend to backpass all the ball he get or being too shy to make attempt to past an opposing player by his dribbling.

I think the tried to beat his man in some matches at the beginning of the season, but with not so good results. He is not Cancelo after all, and i suppose that the way he's playing the last couple of games is purely instructions by Indzagi, who wants to focus on his strengths (pace and physical presence) and to limit his weaknesses (poor ball control and technique).

Somehow I have this strange belief that Dumfries will come good. Inter have the luck of the devil when it comes to RBs (and GKs). We had Zanetti, then Maicon and even during the Suning era we have had Cancelo & Hakimi (both let go due to a combination of financial issues & idiocy) - two of the best RBs/RWBs at present.

Somehow I have a feeling Dumfries will come good. As will Onana. Its destiny.

Agree about that GK part but lets not forget Jonathan.

May I remind you Jonachan, Schelotto, Ansaldi, Wallace, and Montoya? If anything, we are cursed by devil in fullback position. We were swamped by trash fullbacks for 10 years and whenever it seemed we found the solution (Cancelo, Sime, and Hakimi), circumstance would force us to release them.

I don't think that Dumfries will evolve more than what he is delivering right now. Maybe, he might become more clinical in scoring/ assisting, but in overall I don't see it .
He is strong guy, and if he bangs couple of more goals and assist, we could be able to sell him in EPL for good profit, if we can find some proper replacement.

He is suitable for coming off the bench in the last 15 minutes of the second half at Bergamo.
