Yeah, I'm not sure why all of a sudden he was considered Dalbert level before this match.

I think the difference between Interisti and Bbilanisti is perfectly encapsulated in the difference of treatment between Dimarco and Calabria. They're both above average fullbacks, similar in quality, if anything Dimarco is slightly better, but he gets massacred while Calabria gets hailed as a fusion of Maldini and Nesta by Bbilanisti. They're completely delusional while we're a pessimistic, overly critical bunch (I include myself in this).
No one said he's a Dalbert. He's a decent squad player and he can be very useful in certain games. But it's a fact defence isn't one of his strengths.

His defense is atleast on same level as De Vrij.

He had a great game. Perhaps Politano’s injury helped a bit but I think he actually looked pretty comfortable against Napoli’s attack. I feel like he looked pretty comfortable against Madrid as well, maybe we’re not giving him enough credit.

Yeah, he was very good in such a high-tension match. Kept his composure which is not automation with these "younger" players who haven't actually had years at Inter level in their belt (Barella, Lautaro etc).

We should really try to use his ability to bring the ball forward with the ball on his feet. His acceleration is great.

Like other's I was worried about his defense, but he held his own pretty much today. Good for him. Surprised he got subbed maybe Inter's 2 corners late would have been better.

Surprisingly steady. Didn't make any egregious mistakes in defence and has a few good runs forward. Maybe he's a capable LCB backup after all.

My man of the match last night beside handa, hardly put a foot wrong,
On the other note, our counter attack was awful last night, and bit dissapointed with the amount of miss place pass

Inter should have invest on 1 more starting mid, another creative mid

Very worried if suning still at helm next season, cause at the moment they dont have the financial power to buy great players, while we severely need new reliable players

Last two games showed why Gosens was so necessary. DiMarco is definitely a better LCB than LWB. His last season he also played LCB under Juric.

Despite my fears he had a good game against Napoli and deserves another go at LCB against Liverpool assuming Bastoni is not yet 100%.

I liked his enthusiasm and speed going forward. That said, he had very little defensive work to do as Napoli mainly attacked through the middle and their left flank, so he wasn't really tested.

I’m a Dimarco fan and I like what he can bring to the table but he was really helped out with the Politano injury. We all know Poli doesn’t have a great end product but his pace and agility would have given Dimarco fits IMO

Tbh, I still remain very sceptical of the boy, just don't think he's proven enough yet, plus he didn't exactly shine the last time he was playing against a top European club like Real, nah I'd say keep him on the bench let him play games that hold less pressure.

Please no more LCB wannabe. Kolarov is enough. No more Kolarov v.2
