Inter havent been at their best the last month or 2 but they've hardly become a bad team overnight. This match is a great chance to beat a great team and get confidence high again and to start playing good football again. Tough to call but I think Inter will win it but should be alot closer than when Inter won 4-1 at the Olimpico earlier in the season

Remember 4-1.;)

I know we haven't been playing well lately but neither has roma. Totti has been at his best. Mancini has been in great form but with him not being 100% I reckon it's way to close to have the attitude that we will definitely lose.

Maybe I am just blind but don't see how some of you can consider roma as huge favourites for this game. I consider this way too close to call. We will see tomorrow how was right.
Everybody remembers :>

But also, we have to remember the fact that Roma played almost the entire game with a man down, and yet they still were able to level the game at one point.

I don't think I, or anybody else is saying Roma are huge favourites. That's too big word for them. They would be huge favourites if they would play at home with Catania or somethin. Still, Roma are plaing better currently than us, especially when it comes to scoring chances.

I guess, we'll find out in 18 ours.

Of course, a win would give massive confidence and a boost to play well before the liverpool game.

If we play like we have been and lose, then we will be even lower which would certainly say bye bye to CL and possibly even scudetto.

Why is Materazzi starting? He is clearly having a dip in form, and a stint on the bench would do him good.

Also, seems like A Mancini will play and since Roma don't have a target man, there is no need for a Materazzi-type player. Besides, starting him against Roma will make us start with a handicap.

FINALLY, I hope R Mancini knows whom he has in mind for the starting CD duo against Liverpool and he must start them from now. Obviously Materazzi won't start, so what's the point.

I prefer this:

Maicon -- Burdisso -- Chivu/Rivas -- Maxwell

A win will see Roma off and add massive confidence boost ahead of CL clash. I agree with dropping Matrix and putting Chivu partnering with Rivas/Burdisso at the center

If R.Mancini is a bit smart enough and is preparing for Liverpool game, he should have the guts to bench Materazzi for Burdisso or Rivas. Rivas has been playing quite well whenever given the chance and his speed could be very crucial, especially after the injury to Cordoba.

I hope to see Figo for more than 20 minutes or so, coz all my hopes for the Liverpool return lies on him and few other players.:|

Good to see that Zlatan has finally got to rest. Atleast he would be available for the Liverpool game in a better shape, after getting the much needed rest (which he deserves as well).

Last but not the least, I hope not to see Roma attack us and have more possession throughout the game, as it has been happening to us since some matches.

Lets also hope that Maniche would get to play more, coz Stankovic has been totally out of form.

Balotelli ?? He is eligible to play the liverpool game, ain't it Stefan? It wasn't neccessary to name him in the Champions League squad coz, or am I wrong ??

I guess one could argue we have forgotten how to keep the ball as we got used to playing with ten men. Which in turn meant we had to be compact at the back.

Rivas has been our best performing CB recently with the exception of Cordoba, who as we know had a phenomenal game against pool but is not an option. I understand that he isn't as "experienced" as Matrix and or Chivu, but for christ sake Mancini as least he won't make ****ing retarted fouls around the edge of the box and get himself sent off every other game.

In addition, and even though I hate him with a passion, Vieria has to play this game and he better play well otherwise I hope he finally proves to everyone how worthless he is to our team.

Rest Suckovic grab your balls Mancini and play Figo or Jeminez.

I don't see why people are glorifying Roma so much. Our second string squad is better then their starting 11, although they seem to play better as a team from time to time.

This is without a doubt a HUGE match, but we are playing at home with two phenomenal strikers. I think this is the match that we can and will win.

Pravesh did you read the previous page or only the last page??:)

Mario had to be registered either on the main list or the b list for cl. He didn't qualify for the b list since he hasn't been here two seasons and he wasn't included on the main list. So he can't play vs pool.

I don't know what we have to do in order to start firing-up since the first minute, not on the 15th or so.

If we do, only God knows how, & make an early goal, we could probably win.

Otherwise, I'm expecting a draw.

Yea...I don't expect Matrix to play either. I prefer Chivu - Rivas/Nico at the back. But who knows what Mancini is gonna do.

I'm nervous. I really don't want us to lose this one.

Totally with you on this one. There is no point starting Matrix here.
The game tonight could be tricky - best timing for Roma to face us as we are going through some rough time recently. I just hope we can finish the game with 11 men + the fact that we play with our 4-3-1-2 formation.

This is a pretty important game, it should not be used as a practice match for the Liverpool game.
The Liverpool game is 2 weeks away, and we play 2 more games after this, against less threatening opposition. I see no point in benching Matrix for Burdisso in this game.

Nah Stefan, I thought someone had said that there was no need to name him in the B list; therefore was still hoping that you would be wrong in this. But it seems that you are pretty damn sure and your facts seem to be a very valid one. Too bad then, coz he could had been our secret weapon. But then again, with the injuries we were having, we couldn't sacrifice other players.

Getting back to the game, just few hours left and I am not sure if I will be able to watch the game, coz it's at 03:45am and I have to wake up at 06:00am.

Incase I watch it, which I think so; I hope I am not dissappointed by our game. I won't care even if we lose, IF we play a decent game.

But then again, I would be more than happy if we are able to grab a point.

I don’t agree as I want them to play against strong opposition who can and will be a threat to us. Hence I believe it’s better to play them in games with similar atmosphere and tension rather than let’s say v Reggina @ home. The Napoli game in San Paolo will most probably be a good test for them as well.
Anyway, I’m pretty certain Mancini will start with Matrix regardless…

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.

I just want to ask you - Do you really want Inter to fail, because it sounds like that to me from all that you said in recent posts,you are not that realistic,you are just very much negative

Yo wats up guys. Haven't posted in a while cuz i have major A.D.D. (my initiials haha)and posting here and the other forum is too much for me hahahah. IT's one or the other, and the whole rotating the same posts kinda screws me up. :)

Any way, this should be a good game, azzkikr shut your hole di(k.

Ok, figo is probable to play from what mancinis interview says. Thsi game can kill off the season, or make it a bumpy one (we still have fiorentina milan and juve to play). A tie will be a good result, but a win mite turn around our form and possible start winning my nice margins and consistently.

I am gonna have to listen to the game due to damn work, and even though I'm recording it, I can not watch delayed games without knowing who wins.

I hear ya, buddy. On the same boat here. The most I can do is getting my big tasks done, so I can at least hang around here during the game.

1 more hour to go...
