Zanetti, Córdob
For any player or coach, the poll should be for those who supported the club during those days. Many of the current fans would not have been Inter fans 8 years back and would not understand the pain and the difficulties that Cuper could have gone through. Easy for them to look back and criticize this coach now looking at handful of our poor results.



But how can we tell who the new and old fans are? I only just joined this forum, which would count against me for the poll, but I have been a dedicated fan for more than 10 years (because i lived in south africa as a kid my first passions were rugby and cricket, it was only when i moved to england that i learnt to play football)

I agree with those that back Cuper, although i am not a fan of him, i totally agree that the team he had to deal with was rubbish when it is compared man-to-man with the likes of Juve (buffon, thuram, cannavaro, del piero, trez, nedved, davids etc. man those guys were good!)...also roma and lazio had far fewer financial problems then and their teams were stronger, as was the whole league (such as ACM not being a team of old age pensioners)
also he was the first manager in years to give us a good european cup run (uefa cups don't count) and it is still pretty harsh that we lost on away goals to ACM in our own damn stadia...and yeah don't even get me started on the 5 may nightmare...

Walter Samuel,
Agree with Beneamata. He made the team competitive domestically and in Europe. Previously we were a bit of a joke under Tardelli, Lippi and Lucescu.

Tell me about it. The guy changed half our team. He got rid of legends like Bergomi, Pagliuca and Simeone and hand picked the players that came in (which is very rare for an Inter coach under Moratti). I remember we were pre-season favourites for the 99/00 season and i was all excited after we beat Verona on the opening day with a Vieri hattrick. From there it was mostly pretty crap stuff from us, though i do remember Vieri and Baggio destroying Roma and also Baggio bailing out Lippi's sorry ass in the end of season play off for the CL spot against Parma. Lippi's time at Inter will always be a huge black mark on his CV.

Cuper wasn't that bad..

I would question Zenga's coaching ability more than Cuper's, Zenga hasn't proven anything yet. If I were to choose between Cuper and Zenga, I would choose Cuper.

Capello is the only resonable replacement for Mou, we can't risk too much.

We had a festival of fringe players around! (Also due to Lippi and incompetent football directors)

He was very good with us in terms of results given the players he had. If we had 4-5 players MUCH better than those we had, we would have won everything.

With Ronaldo, Vieri up front, and Recoba, Ventola(Kallon) as backups
Toldo in goal
Zanetti, Emre and Di Biagio were probably the next best players we had.
Cordoba and Materazzi despite being good, were never world class. Cannavaro was world class but never performed here.

We lacked a decent left back. There weren't many good ones back then, but we could have done better than Gresko and Georgatos!
Sergio Conceicao was decent but not top class.
We had Guly, Buruk Okan, van der Meyde, Kily(after his prime), Dalmat(who was a great dribbler but had loose mind)

If we had Veron back then, along with Nesta maybe we would have been twice as good. Also left back was needed.
If we also had a good left winger as well as a good right one, we would have had the best team in the world. Left winger ie Kily back in 2001. Right winger ie Luis Figo back in 2001.

Instead of reinforcing the team and thinking about changing his 442counter, Cuper passed on a first option on Kaka(who scored against us the first time he met us with Milan), he passed out on Ronaldinho who after 2-3 seasons was regarded the best ever(incorrectly, but he was miles ahead of most players). He prefered a Crespo to Ronaldo because he was more adaptable to a long-ball system. Not that Crespo was not great but we had the best and couldn't utilise him, while with Brazil he scored 8 goals in the World Cup.

He made serious errors, but he was one of the latest errors we made, and actually made us learn from those mistakes.

I feel getting Mihaljovic will be a step backwards as I see him as being of the same 'school' as Mancini, despite him being a defender and Mancini an offensive player. I see Cuper as 10 step backwards...
