International break might help us to sober up a bit, or might even prolong the gap that's already here.

This is probably the match that can decide our path for rest of the season. If we can't win this we can easily count off Napoli,Atalanta,Fiorentina games as we're not capable of winning against any team in top 6-7 tier. Won't count Juve as it's probably going to be a shitty useless 0-0 draw.

This is the first time I can ever remember being glad of an international break.

Sky report Lukaku still won't be ready to start this game but he may be on the bench. Calha will be available.

Sky also says it's starting to look like a Barella - Mkhi - Gagliardini midfield.

If that's the case I want Inzaghi actually out. Some of us here have more sense than that.

Absolutely zero surprises there, but still laughable and pathetic nonetheless.

→ We sign a talented young player to deputise for Brozovic and add midfield depth
→ Despite an impressive preseason and promising cameos, Limone decides he will not consider Asllani for the CM roles
→ Instead, Limone decides to designate him purely as a dedicated Brozovic sub
→ Now that Brozovic is injured, Limone will not use his designated Brozovic replacement
→ Instead he will use a 33 attacking midfielder / winger as a DM
→ this also forces (or allows) him to play Gagliardini, who has been disastrous

Did I miss anything?

I mean i had warned you about this. :lol:

Too early to talk about this as we first need to see how players return from international break but it will be interesting to see how Inzaghi chooses to replace Brozovic. The obvious choice would be Asllani but he has barely played. Would Inzaghi really start him for the first time in a big game? I am not so sure. I wouldn't be surprised if Inzaghi went with Hakan as a regista and Mhki/Gagliardini alongside Barella.

If the above purported lineup is true, that "tactical meeting" a few days ago was all for naught. Incredible :palm:

Yeah, you really thought Inzaghi is gonna throw Asllani in front of the fierce lions of Roma all of a sudden?! Inter is not a place to nurture youngsters. The fans will kill him after making a mistake. Gagliardini is experienced enough to make dozens of that and still given multiple chances to repeat this pattern again. Asllani should sit and learn. I'm sure he will get 10 minutes against some teams soon.

Poor Barella. He probably gonna drink poison a day before matchday or headbutt the referee's face during the match so he could miss some game next few weeks instead of playing with donkeys

Probably will miss this one, due to Hurricane Ian which is purported to be a Cat 4 or Cat 5 at landfall near my residence. Grande. I knew it was tough being an Inter fan, but this piling on IMO.
