It was how Barca fans blamed the volcano (lol) and Milito offside goal. Or "Inter reach final coz fortunate draws" last year. You do admit "If it wasn't for our own incompetence in front of their goal". Was that ATM fault?

Football works? UEFA was pouring prize money based on each round pass. Not "how many chances one created per match". It was only you who judge based on your feeling.

Yeah I am not saying Inter is not one of the strongest. But I do not claim it now. Wait until quarter then we are 1 of the 8. Or semi then we are one of the 4. That's how it is.

I'm not claiming anything mate. You go ahead and judge based on what's been served to you, I'm gonna judge based on my feelings that I've grown into football for over twenty years. I don't give a shit about records and stats while I can myself watch a game and see where's positives and negatives. Football doesn't always go your way.

Say whatever you want but Inter should be winning Champions Leagues, not being satisfied with high rankings and a few KO successes.

A lot of worse teams have done this and against better opposition. We need results.

Well for that Calhanoglu and Lautaro need to fulfill their potential instead of being kinda meh against big teams in Europe.

Mostly they are awesome, it's just a mixed bag when it comes to teams like Liverpool, Real Madrid, City or Bayern. I need to see these two upping their game against opponents like that. Others usually play well enough. I'm pretty sure that if Lautaro and Calhanoglu have monster games, we are unstoppable.

Just let Inzaghi cook, as long as we keep doing well in CL I am good, cause eventually we will have some results.

Not exactly sure when to write about this but let's try here cause we missed many chances in this game. I had that feeling before that people are actually complaining little too much about us missing too many chances but let's see what numbers are saying.

I found goals per shot on target stat and we are actually third best team in Europe (top 5 leagues only) right now by converting our shots on target:
1. Girona 0.44
2. Roma 0.43
3. Inter 0.42
4. Newcastle 0.39
5. Juventus & West Ham 0.38
...

There is also goal per shot stats:
1. Girona 0.17
2. Atletico 0.15
3. Inter,Frankfurt,Stuttgart,Lorient,Newcastle 0.14
...

While I agree these don’t really take into account quality of the shots. Actual goals to expected goals would be a better comparison. However, to my knowledge we are also out performing that.

We're out-performing in Serie A, under-performing in Champions League.

Per FBRef:
  • Serie A xG is 56.2, actual goals is 67
    • Our overall xG margin is 56.2-20.2 (+36) vs. +55 actual
  • Champions League xG is 14.6, actual goals is 9
    • Overall xG margin is 14.6-5.8 (+8.8) vs. +4 actual

Nobody cares. Inter is on a mission, and Griezmann's or any other players' absence is NONE of Inter's business.
