in my entity i would rather sack the lazy employees over the hard working ones

the guy is taking classes to know italian from the first day he arrived

if the managment decide to sack him for the sake of the players who are lazy

then i would say FDB got sacked because he is actually too good for inter .

Exactly. People who deserve the big sharp axe are Mancini and whoever planned the summer's bad campaign which appears to be a tourism tour more than a training one. Its preparation and management was so bad that the team is still suffering from it until this day. Those people should be fired for being lazy and incompetent.

There are also those mediocre players who are still in this club for years. Those should be sacked too. Add the so called captain who has failed miserably as one. All of those should be sacked before De Boer.

For once Thohir is the wisest man in Inter. I believe Zanetti shares the same thoughts.

It's probably just Suning being impatient and wanting to see their Gabigol. Football isn't retails you know. Italian media is also taking advantage of this.

I hope it's true and Thohir keeps FdB. However, I'm not bothered by Suning's impatient. Their impatient could mean they spend more money on transfers so it's a win-win situation.

Inter legend Mazzola: "De Boer has good ideas, he needs a communicator"

Inter legend Sandro Mazzola has come out in defence of beleaguered Coach Frank De Boer.

“I know him, he has the right ideas but doesn’t manage to communicate them,” the Grande Inter talisman told Radio CRC.

“The players don’t know what he wants”.

Mazzola, who won two European Cups with Helenio Herrera's Nerazzurri in the 1960s, had a very useful suggestion, however: “He needs to talk face-to-face with the club about this, perhaps add a middleman between the squad and himself, someone who can explain his technical concepts to the team.

“It’d be a pity to lose him”.

Source: Calciomercato.com

It's riddiculous that Mazzola understands FdB's ideas, but our players don't.

If you can connect the dots from recent article, particularly the bolded part:

Chinese retailer Suning Corp. approved of Bolingbroke’s vision enough to pay 270 million euros for a majority stake in the team in July. The new owners told the CEO, “‘I want you to be consistently in the Champions League. And I want you to make money,”’ Bolingbroke recalled. “‘And your business plan says that within three years of my purchase, you will be profit positive? Great. Off you go.

New fans, new sponsorships, new revenue -- it all depends on winning games, Bolingbroke said, something the team’s been struggling to do. “We fail if we don’t win trophies,” he said.

Source: Bloomberg.com

Suning would like to have profit from the start of their purchase immediately.
So, basically, we're into the same cycles as the previous owners,
no patience over many coaches, who can't deliver immediate results.

IMHO, there's nothing wrong about it.
But it's definitely wrong if they haven't seen it those past few years,
we failed for the same reason.

Do we want to win now?
Or do we want to play with style?
Or do we want to develop for the future, when we can play with style AND win?

Right now the team is top heavy. The likes of Candreva, Perisic, Joao Mario are great talents, but the likes of Nagatomo, D'Ambrosio, Santon are meeting the minimum requirements (and I like Santon). There are questions if Murillo and Miranda are really on the same level as the likes of Materazzi, Samuel and Lucio (of course they aren't).

Medel is no Cambiasso. Banega is close to Sneijder's level, but I still give Sneijder the edge. Icardi vs Milito... Don't insult El Principe like that. Icardi is not even as good as Julio Cruz (who I thought was great, but hey).

Can Medel and Motta even be compared, for all of Medel's running and tackling? No. No they can't.

So either the team plays more defensive, to make up for this comparative weakness, or we try to win 'shoot outs' (3-2, 4-3, 2-1 if we defend exceptionally for 90 minutes, etc).

Its quite the opposite - Thohir inherited his wealth, while Zhang Jindong build his (far bigger) empire from scratch.

But I do agree that Thohir is a sharp guy, his business decisions for Inter have generally been good. If he is indeed supporting FDB through this poor phase, then he is demonstrating his level head. It would be silly to sack FDB after 9 league games.

Forget Milito and Cruz for a moment. Imagine that you build Inter around Gampaolo Pazzini as a lone striker, and just kept on delivering countless balls into the penalty area.

This is what you're watching this season.

Stop trying to make Icardi a scapegoat. As the record stands its his goals that have kept FDBs job so far.

Do or die for him tomorrow. Another flat performence and anything but a win and he is gone i feel.

After looking at Frank's squad for tomorrow, I've decided to recommit my support to Frank. He's made for his mistakes.

I'm blaming a considerable part of Inter's bad recent results on an extremely limited player who hasn't been doing his job at all. I'm curious to know how you got the idea that I'm scapegoating Icardi.

I know he hasnt performed as he should recently but not many have. And because your blaming Icardi for our poor run of form. You're not alone a few people are in a number of threads. Icardi isnt the reason FDB is failing and if anything with how poor he's been lately you have to question why FDB keeps playing him so much.

Icardi is a good reason why we're failing lately, and I am heavily blaming De Boer for not benching him.

Thohir is probably just trying to save face after appointing De Boer. Thohir is a fucking loser, can't wait for the day Suning buy his shares

Blaming De Boer for our issues is like trying to cure a disease by stopping a symptom.

I was willing to give de boer the benefit of the doubt.. but after losing so many matches with he's stupid mistakes, I changed my mind about him he's not for us anymore, whoever becomes coach will only be a caretaker until management find the appropriate coach and it all points to Diego Simeone.

Sorry but that's b.s. De Boer's tactics are cross, cross, cross, cross. It's Mazzari and Mancini all over again.
