I'm gonna push you on this because I think De Vrij's resurgence helped us a lot. How many goals have we conceded with De Vrij on the pitch? He isn't at his best, but he is clearly a lot better than last 2 seasons and I would call that a decisive improvement for us.

We've conceided 2 goals but it's not like we conceide many goals anyways both in UCL and in Serie A. Also De Vrij is not a clear starter.
Dumfries has been nothing short of amazing since the UCL semi finals imo, showing the best form he's ever shown since joining the club.

That I do agree. I'm just saying, I would add De Vrij next to Dumfries, Hakan and Lautaro as the players in best form right now. I think he deserves it. Lots of others are good too, like Pavard, Thuram, Mkhitaryan, C.A., Darmian,..

So after a season of fucking around and now finally playing decent football, you think you deserve to be paid more. Nuh-uh. Win the Scudetto and get that pay raise or fuck off to EPL as soon as possible.

Well he didn't deserve a new contract by the way he was playing last season, that much I can tell you. Keep playing good and you'll get your big payday either way.

This guy lacks intelligence like big time. Don't wanna take away his impact in this season, as I think he was very good in overall, but games like this will remind us that he's just not good enough for a tittle winning team.

He needs to be sold as soon as we get a proper offer in the summer (if we get one).

He's constantly ruining our momentum, whether it is offensively or defensively. This Inter has leveled up, that we cannot afford to have player who are prone to brainfarts in almost every crucial match.

Nah, i'd say in defence he does enough work to make it work. But his first touch and some of his decisions are horrible

Well he's improved a lot tactically in defensive aspect, but he's still a loophole which gets too obvious in such games.

It's not like gobbi has attacked a lot. Their game was based on a defensive approach, but yet again he was caught off guard against either Chiesa or Kostic.

I'm not making a big deal out of it, since Chiesa is very tricky and tough to mark, but Dumfries' decision making either on ball possession or positioning has been terrible. One of the biggest reasons that we couldn't perform our usual game.

Don't have one.

Yep, this is a crucial part here, even darmian looks more fluid when he plays that position.

He isn't useless imo, especially against smaller teams that can't deal with his physicality, but he just can't be a first option in a team with our ambitions. He would be acceptable as an impact sub though.

He's definitely our biggest weakness on the ball. Him and Acerbi today made it so difficult to play fluid. I know Bastoni has had some criticism on some of his defending this season, but the guy is so consistent and important in our attacking game and I think that was obvious today.

With Dumfries, you really do see his limitations in the biggest games - weakness on the ball and decision making. We saw it in the CL final as well. That position is definitely one that we can improve on. It's a shame both Augusto and Dimarco are LWBs - we need to find a RWB that is good on the ball, given Cuadardo is old and a short-term solution.

Very disappointing performance today, if this continues should be relieved of starting duties.

Eaten by Vlahovic on Juve's goal, let Darmian taking care of Chiesa alone, if only Pavard was available, we could play Darmian at his spot.

Inzaghi confessed Dumfries was not at his best coming back from the NT break.

It's a bit tough for us in the right flank as Pavard is out for a long time, Dumfries struggling with over usage and Cuadrado still not 100% as Inzaghi also confessed Cuadrado played through some pain and thanked him for that. So I'm going to give it a pass to Dumfries, he probably played the most he could (and obviously wasn't at his A game).

He has blame for the goal, but SDV had too. There was only two options available for Chiesa to pass, and the other player was covered. De Vrij was too far away from Vlahovic.

De Vrij did not even know that Vlahovic was there.

I would blame Hakan and Mikhi that were jogging behind Vlahovic as if we were leading 3-0 and it was 89th minute.
