He is the perfect player for Contes system. Just lacks experience to be a starter at LWB.

Honestly is he any worse than Biraghi or Dalbert? He also has the added benefit of being a good set piece taker

He definitely needs to be considered. Should start in final preseason match for a longer look at least.

He got a very good left foot. When he made those decisive and a bit curling cross, I felt satisfactory. But seriously, everyone gets better, must be Conte’s method no doubt.

Dalbert should be sold.
Dimarco starter. Asamoah sub for LB.

I would be more inclined to have Asamoah starting at the moment.

Dimarco can wait for his chance.

Took me a while to recognise him because I missed the announcement when he subbed on, his interception was quite good and the way he played gave a lively play on the left flank than a monotonous Dalbert.

Stepped up to the penalty spot as well. Some very refined left foot that is. I also remember him celebrating like crazy after scoring against us. This guy has the mentality and potential to succeed here. Now it's up to Conte.

Id like to have him, Biraghi and Asamoah as LWBs next season. Asamoah can cover the midfield as well.

For some reason, the guy has always come across as a bit of a hot head to me. Even last night, every time he went to challenge for the ball, I kept thinking he was gonna lunge in wildly :lol: Kid has always had a good left foot though. Scored some nice free kicks for the Italy youth teams and obviously that screamer against us.

There's always an argument over keeping young players as backups vs letting them go out on loan in the hope that they'll be a first team player elsewhere. The latter is preferable IMO, and more beneficial for their development. But there's always the risk they'll just warm the bench at some relegation club who prefer to play 38 year olds for their 'experience' - exactly what happened to Dimarco at Parma last season.

Not advocating him, but Biraghi by comparison is 5 years older and has played 4 consecutive seasons in the top flight (La Liga and Serie A) as a first choice starting player, playing in 139 of 152 league matches in that time. What does Dimarco have? A golazo against us, some nice flashes in a preseason match and 2 shit years of injuries and bench time. Point is, that's not a player whose track record I want to rely on.

It would be a massive risk to place any expectations on Dimarco at Inter at this time. The good thing is, he's only 21 and has a contract until 2023 so we can actually afford to be patient with him. If it were up to me he would go out on loan every season until he can actually find some regularity, like Biraghi did. Whether that's 1 season, 3 seasons or until his contract runs out and we let him go, at least we can monitor his progress before depending on him to deliver. Unless Conte has seen some hidden prodigious skill in training, Dimarco simply doesn't have the body of work to convince yet.

Maybe we can keep him until he's 30 and has never played a game for us, like Longo :einstein:

Dimarco couldn't start at Parma ahead of grandpa Gobbi and Gagliolo who is a natural CB. Even if he was decent against Spurs (i didn't watch the match) it doesn't mean he's ready to be one of our two options in left wingback position. I am ok with Dimarco staying only if he's going to be our third option in that position. If Biraghi can join Inter on a loan swap deal with Valero, i certainly prefer him over Dimarco.

He was injured for most of last season if I recall.

I liked his impact on the game when he came on, seemed very confident. Why not keep him as a rotation option and make some money off Dalberto Carlos?

While Dimarco lost many games due to injury, injuries weren't the only reason he wasn't starting for Parma. Out of the 24 games he was in the squad, he started 10 of them, he was a sub in 3 of them and he remained on the bench in 11 of them.

But 8 of those 10 starts came in the final 12 matches of the season, so after the injury he slowly worked his way into the starting lineup.

Never underestimate the determination of Italian managers to play aging, terrible veterans over promising youth players.

Ok so this guy buried his penalty kicks into the bottom right corner twice.. and then the camera switched to Conte clapping/smiling in both scenarios. A big Deja Vu moment for me.

VS Tottenam

VS Valencia:

I smell something is going on here... really hope Conte sees something in him.

yeah i was thinking the same thing in both matches :lol: but he also clapped his hands for the other players..

I saw him anyway playing on the right side today. Can he play with both foot? i though he is only left footed, he can't play on the other side..
