Dimarco has a primavera level player mentality unfortunately.

Tried alot especially in the 2nd half, then the dramatics kicked in and cost Inter. Needs support from his team mates and fans, but really needs to give himself a good talking to while looking in the mirror.

He does a lot of things good but man his mistakes so far this year have directly costed us probably 5 points. That’s massive.

Apart from that sleeping on the field letting his mates do the job while Lazio scored I actually thought he was good. Sometimes it feels too obvious that we try to put the ball to him so he can cross. But I guess that is what happens when the next guy is Gagliardini.

Agreed, I thought he was man of the match until that point.
Saying that, he's fucked us now against atalanta and today.

You are being too harsh on him. The missed penalty is unlucky and today it was idiotic for him to stay on the floor for that long but still. On the other hand he was everywhere today fighting, and was being reliable both in offense and defense.

Not LCB in my book, why Inzaghi keep bothering DiMarco as LCB, not LWB.

I don't know why Inzaghi expose our left side everytime.

I beg to differ. He was everywhere and did well today. Covered lots of ground and got his defence positioning right most of the time.

When Darmian went to Bastoni’s post, he was trying to do a bit of overlap with Dimarco. That’s when both of them got confused and ended up exposing us on the flank twice. It didn’t help when Perisic was also gone and we basically reconstructed the left flank with Correa-Vecino-Darmian. That must have been very confusing for Dimarco.

For a guy, who messed up big time, in the last match, he did alright, his corners were better too!

Would have costed us some points (again!) but I really like his performance. Dimarco offers a lot of possibility for us on the left flank. Like Ethor said his corners were better too.

But not sure what to make of Inzaghi starting him as a LCB. I'd definitely prefer having Bastoni there. Keeping him as AN OPTION in the 70th minute would be great. But I'd rather have him deputise for Perisic than to constantly start as a LCB.

I was wondering about the Bastoni thing too. Maybe it was an Inzaghi coaching thing:.give Bastoni some bench time because he has been underwhelming a lesson. Additionally start Dimarco, despite his bone headed play last outing, a confidence boost "that your still an important part of this team".

Probably my bs, but it worked.

Maybe he got a knock?

That's not usual opponent keeps playing if you get a knock. Usually you get a freekick (as that was a foul).

I've turned my opinion over that whole play. It was a freekick but the ref gave the advantage. We used the advantage but then our player keeps on the ground. The normal thing normal players would do is put the ball out like numerous Lazio players suggested Reina would do. Our advantage for the foul we suffered was we got to try one attack, we lose the ball (quite normal) and then the OPPONENT gets advantage to play 10v11 because they fouled our player. I think even the ref acted wrong there.

I disagree. We lost any moral high ground on this situation the moment Lautaro continued to play. You can't expect from the opponents to throw the ball out when your own player has tried to use the advantage and score a goal. It's totally hypocritical. I put all the blame on the ref. He should have definitely intervened as the player had stayed down for way too long.

I was with that sentiment first but then I thought it through and decided that no. Why would the team who gets the advantage stop playing? Their player can be down, he might get up during the use of advantage. If not, play is whistled off. The key point here is that foul was made in the first place which resulted in Dimarco being down.

And in almost EVERY match, the opposing team puts the ball out if opponent's player is down. It's not about any moral high ground, it's just normal sportsmanship. You don't play if opponent's player is down. Several Lazio players waved their hands for Reina to put the ball out.

Ref made the biggest mistake of course because he has the control. But it's not immoral to try to use the advantage if your team is fouled and you get the ball, man down or not. If the man keeps being down, opponent GOALKEEPER should fucking throw the ball out. It's not like Lazio was in an immediate position to score, the ball is on the other side of the pitch and Lazio played the ball within 5 meters from Dimarco, directly using his injury in their benefit. That's fucking immoral if anything.

Not really. You can't compare the two situations. When Lautaro received the ball he wasn't aware that dimarco was still on the ground, even IF he noticed that Dimarco fell. In these situations nobody turn back and watch who is down 20 meters behind him. But when Lazio players saw he's still on the ground they had all the time in the world to decide. I think the ref had to intervene there, but you can't really compare Lautaro's reaction to what Lazio players could do.

Had Lazio had Klose, I know for sure he would have stopped playing. What a great personality he has.

Total different situations. Dimarco’s pass straight to Lautaro, who is in an attacking situation already, as he received the ball he dribbled a little and shot the ball. Dimarco went went to the ground right when he passed to Lautaro, no sane player would kick the ball out in as little time and situation like that, not to mention he might not know what happened to Dimarcos as he’s behind him, not to mention its actually an advantage.

Meanwhile Lazio continued to play from the goalkeeper to the goal they scored, all this time Dimarco is on the ground. Even some of their cunt players were captured instructing Reina to kick the ball out.

And yes Referee was poor in this situation. Our players’s reaction was a little bit extra especially Dumfries, but at least they showed some passion to mask their shitty defending, although they might have slowed down expecting the ball to go out but still, poor reaction from our side.
