Maicon worked a lot in attack and had Zanetti often taking up his place from RDM when he would go further upfield. He had backup most of the time. Also IIRC, Mou would always have three players back even if Zanetti would not cover for Maicon, meaning that other fullback would tuck in with CBs.

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree.

Indeed he wasn't as important as their 3 CB (and Buffon), but he played 84 games, and could play as CM, RW, RM and has discipline and tactical abilities. Nothing fancy but he did what the coach told him.

Exactly was D'ambrosio can be for us.

I don't doubt he played a lot of games, but I'm sure lots were late sub appearances. You're right that he covered a lot of positions, but at the end of the day I don't think he was particularly great at any of them. He was useful in the sense that he had low wage, never complained, and could be put into any position since he does what the coach asks. But in no way was he integral. In fact, when he did have to be a started (beginning of last season when they had lots of injuries), he was shown to be inadequate especially in the match against Roma they lost 2-1.

I agree with you that the word "integral" could be substituted.

But I think that he is an example, of a player that in the right system can contribute, in a way, to the team.

Why can't we make such videos? Our social media presence is so laughable. Just hire a guy who is the English version of Scarpini. The club calls itself Internazionale yet fails miserably to satisfy its English-speaking fanbase :palm:

Here's the link for those with buggy browsers:

Same here on Win10, Chrome. It's been like that the whole day, so something broke recently.

I'm excited to see how we play tomorrow. I know he hasn't had much time to implement a system, but I'd like to get an idea of how well play.

16 pages in less than a week. That feels like some sort of record.

Y'all know there's a thread just for this kind of thing, right? Flag it for the admins there :)

Icardi
You can see a hand of a good coach quite quickly (look Sarri at Napoli, Garcia at Roma when he took charge, Spalletti at Roma last season, Conte at Juve 11-12), so if de Boer has something interesting to implement (I strongly believe he does) we will see that sooner than later. Maybe we won't suddenly become Barcelona or Ajax 96' but the flashes of general idea of play - something what was missing through the whole time with Mancini - should be seen soon.

Fingers crossed Frank!

I missed the first 30 minutes of the game, but saw enough to know that we are already playing better under FDB than Mancini. We might be able to make a season of it after all. This is after a few days of training only. We got 8 days till the season opener. Well done today Frank, like a boss!

[h=1]De Boer: "Joao Mario has quality. Also Banega in front of the defense, Medel serves. Proud of Icardi"[/h]14.08.2016 00:33 of Drafting FcInterNews.it

Frank de Boer was also the protagonist of the post-Celtic press conference. Here are his most important words from Limerick: "Some guys tonight I liked the intensity and desire to put pressure on their opponents. With good organization we can improve the quality of what we do on the pitch. Joao Mario? He is a European champion and a player who is followed by many big European clubs, this means that he has quality. our goal is to get back in the Champions League, we will fight with other teams to do that. I think that Banega could/will play in front of the defense. Medel? Need a player like him that recovers many balls. I liked how Icardi has worked for the team. I am very proud of his will to do well and how he fought for every ball. "

Nope. That would probably be CSKA Sofia....and we lost to them :)
