Another big game and anything but a loss would make me happy. Good that Cicinho, who's in good form won't be able to play against us coz of suspension.

We should really start playing well, otherwise forget Liverpool; we might even lose the Scudetto very easily. We suck so badly lately and that has been happening since the start of this year I guess (Catania, Parma, Liverpool, Sampdoria,...).

Mancini should find the right tactic and the right players and I hope that happens very soon.

Cicinho in good form. LOL. He is nothing more than a bench player for them. Scored a goal today, and had a good game, but that hardly means you are in good form. Spaletti never uses him in big games, and he wouldn't have played against us anyways.

I wont mind a draw in this game. That will still allow us to keep the 9 points gap. Also considering we are crashing out of CL next month, we will be able to concentrate more fully on the league, while Roma may make it to the next rounds of CL.

I would go with a midfield of.

It's more than I can say for Suckovic.

True, but its a choice between him and Viera. Its like choosing between a turd sandwich and a giant douche.
I prefer the turd sandwich.

We really need to make Roma gets terrified of the Meazza once again. They have not won here over the past 10-20 years before but the last 2 seasons, they beat us 2-3 in 05/06 and 1-3 in 06/07. Let's hope that despite our poor form, we'll still win this. Also, Crespo should start ahead of Cruz. Julio's form hasn't been that good in the past few matches and Hernan's goal yesterday should grant him another chance.

What has happened to Jiminez.
Three weeks ago i checked at Inter's site he was cycling to recuperate and i checked it again today it says he is now doing Aerobics.It seems like Ronaldo will recover before Jiminez.

Figo must play. We need a Picasso-type behind the forwards, not the construction worker who defected in your garden.

JC
Maicon Rivas Matrix Maxwell
JZ Cambiasso Chivu
Figo
Ibra Crespo


Chivu knows Roma well and Crespo always does well against them. Plus, Cruz needs an extended rest to get back to his best. Time to get back on track here.

Agree with Brads' lineup.
I was thinking about giving Maniche a chance..but not in this game I suppose.

I wouldn't play matrix in this game. He is slow and that's asking for disaster vs roma. He also hasn't been playing too well lately.

I won't write a lot about how we should play.

Since couple games back, every game, I'm just waiting for the first 10 minutes of the game, as it shows me lately, what we will play for the entire game, and what can I hope for. It shouldn't be like this, but for some reason it is so I'll do the same on this ocasion.

I'm waiting to see, what formation we'll start, and how we will play as a team, how Mancio will set us up.

Seeing us play, and how Roma is playing, at the moment, our defeat is more probable than our victory, there is no suprise there.

As for the tactic, heh, even if we'll start with 4-3-1-2, which is not so certain, Mancio will switch it again in 20'th minute or so, as he did in the game with Sampdoria, as he thinks it will solve all our problems. Mancio needs to freekin step up, and change things.

As for Crespo, sure he scored a goal, that Julio didn't lately. But I can say the same about Ibra, or our midfield playing bad, or our side backs not showing their potential. If the whole team is playing bad, I am last person to critisize the individuals. Ibra and Cruz had too little in those games to show anything. Cruz is a clinical striker, just like Crespo, but if Dejan wouldn't make this cross, he wouldn't score, and his game would also be not encouraging just like Cruz's.

The last thing I want to say, is that I expect, and I strongly emphasise that, I expect not to see Matrix there, but the pair that will play with Liverpool. But again, knowing Mancio this is 50-50. If he plays everybody before the Valencia away game etc. he can easily field a player who won't play against our most crucial game. Seriously, I'm loosing more and more confidence in him.

Nah mate. I had been reading few match reports of AS Roma and most of them had said that he was finding his attacking form back. I did search for his recent games but found out that he hadn't started those. So, I am not sure now ! :wallbang:

We will be lucky to draw this game in current form.

We all know stankovic and likely vieira will both start this game. So its cambi, zanetti, stankovic and vieira :wallbang:. Talk about a useless one dimensional midfield.

Anyways, likely to be -6 after this game, which means the scudetto is in danger. Would be incredible if we managed to choke there as well, but knowing our usual spring chokes, its probable.

:dielaugh: Now you are making me laugh.

But anyways,back to the topic. Roma are the toughest team we will play, it is here where Mancio should ask the team what they are made off. We need such a game, its a pity that we have soo many injuries that we have to play Vieira.

I dont think even if we lose our Scudetto is in danger, but I dont want to lose to Roma. We can shut them up for this season. Forza Inter!

No Milan player
Inter.it says Cesar, Cruz, & Ibra trained separately. I don't have a good feeling here. Cesar might not be so vital. Cruz needs break & give way to Suazo/Crespo right now. But Ibra...he's a definite must, IMO.
