Just get SMS this summer and we will be champions for the coming years.
Sorry to say, the only chance we get SMS is when his contract expired, and his will to stay at Italy.

EPL clubs are 10 times richer than us, PSG, Barca, Madrid, Munchen, so many clubs richer than us, why he join Inter.

This is a last year for SMS in Lazio. Look at them. 0 investments, squad weaker every passing year.

There will be a line for him. I think Lotito will sell him for similar amount to Vlahovic( maybe similar pay structure too) 3x20M€ and 10M€ bonuses.

Rube will be after him , also for Ruiz if they'll see us being interested. Its how it is. They are pushing players out Rabiot, Arthur and can easily afford SMS with postponed payments.

I know but a man can dream right? I'm afraid if he goes to Juve we really have a problem for the coming years. SMS is one of the best if not the best midfielder at the moment imo.

Juve would have struggled to get to top4 without this mercato. That's why Agnelli and co did it, they had legitimate fear they fuck up this season. Would have been a catastrophe for the club.

Title chances? Fuck that guys. Really. There is no chance.
With chokers Napoli, Bbilan, Atalanta and of course champions of choking Inter as their competition? Everything is still possible my man, unfortunately it is.

I wouldn't call it choking if you lose EL final to a club which have won the said competition 4 times in less than 10 years. First final for Inter since the treble?

Also how Copa semifinal is choking? Was it expected from Inter to win it? No.

Failing to reach CL knockouts have been the only choking moments though I'd call only the last 2 ones such. The first time is always the first time (Spalletti season) and we started from pot 4?

Losing to Napoli and to Pirlos rube in Coppa is choking,we were favorites in those matches,sorry but it is what it is.
Sevilla ok,they won it,but when we compare ours and their players,we should win that,its a fkn final,we failed in that final big time,its a choke.
Its nothing new,Inter's history is full of full chokes.

just forget about this Scamaca or Frattesi thing. pour all the money on SMS and we are set for the next season.
how would we be set if Sanchez and Džeko are almost finished? Rather get Scamacca and Frattesi to try to outscore everybody

Every team still have the chances to win the title until we lift the cup.
even if we win the derby, we still have a long way to go, forza ragazzi

That's not really how maths works tbf.

This is why we have the fuck up thread. We are the only team, reasonably, with the budget left to win the title. We would have to fuck up basically to a once every 5 or 10 years level to not win it now.

Juventus are out for me. Napoli and Milan have a small chance. It's like 90% Inter, we just need to not fuck it up.

For me the next two matches are crucial for title race. If we get at least 4 points we are in very good position. If we get less than 4 race is still open. If we get 6, it's over.

Something like this, 4 points means we're in great position still, 3, 0 or 1 means that we have allowed a direct rival to gain on us. Two points aren't terrible but not ideal. It beats the other three scenarios though.

Sometimes momentum is more important than maths.

Am I the only one who would prefer Fabian Ruiz to SMS? I feel like he brings more balance and is really good in possession, also a better long range shot.
