Apparently our plaayers have refused a salary cut. That's really disapapointing if true, if you look at what else is happening at other big clubs.

No one talked with them yet. Our players so far have agreed to anything they had to do to help the club.

Edit: i beg you to not believe CDS. This paper is shit source that's hate every foreign owner in Serie A.

As per Rob Harris of the AP, our sanctions for the ESL are going to be losing out on 5% of our European revenue for 1 season: https://twitter.com/RobHarris/status/1390713222085349376?s=20

We're gonna be so fucking poor :lol:

Also, if we try to join any other breakaway league we'll be fined 100m :thumbsup:

Sky also confirming the news.

Seriously fuck UEFA and it's disappointing that people sided with these cunts. FFP is a fucking joke until UEFA finds a way to stop fake sponsorships or by curbing the amount of revenue from sponsorships.

The sport is just who can launder the most foreign money.

you realise long before FFP existed, we were a club that was only competitive/existed because of HEAVY subsidies through our owners?


The route by which they can subsidise has changed, but Inter was like one of the first culprits. It's a bit hypocritical, really, to complain about FFP when we no longer have owners who can subsidise us, but no blinking back to the Moratti era where we lost well over 1 billion euros aggregate at a time where £100k a week was a high salary.

It is hypocritical and a problem we started, but (1) FFP/fake sponsorships were not a thing back then and (2) spending 20 million on Ronaldo is not the same as spending 60 million or whatever on David Luiz. We had limits back then. We can have moral arguments all day, but all the "classic" teams are dying out in favor of fake sugar daddy teams with 14 fans. If you want to maintain that state of football, by all means have to it.

But if all's fair, then the "classic" teams have 1 thing in their favour: bigger fanbases/markets. If they want to capitalize on those bigger fanbases/markets with a new tournament to combat the influence of fake sponsorships it's their right.

sure, it's their right, as it is the right of UEFA and the football leagues to withdraw them from other european leagues and competitions.

All of the clubs named could still have proceeded with the ESL, but they decided they'd rather play in the leagues and CL.



As more money flows into football, it's inevitable that football clubs become more professional, and investors looking for returns take them ofer. Also prestige assets. Unless someone can create a system that allows clubs to retrofit fan ownership to these clubs worth billions, it's not going to change either, and nor does the ESL help that argument, it makes everything much worse. So I'm confused about your point of view.


Professionally owned clubs arent a bad thing. They let you have the money to invest in the team, infrastructure, etc. Imagine if Inter fans owned Inter - how the fuck would we ever raise £400 million for a stadium? We're gonna do an FIF whip round? Also, what RoI would I get as a private individual? The other option is the club takes a loan, but that'll be high interest as the only security would be the club itself.

I rather buy Spezia think it’s 8 million-20 million

Start a project there than spend what 1 billion on inter.

See if you can make it into what Udinese use to be. Buying teams is a billionaires game. Even then it’s burning your money for the love of the team only to get shit on by the fans for not cloning Messi and Ronaldo.

Do you know what is horribly sad and heartbreaking for Inter as a club, as well as for its supporters?

The fact that every time we win something and should go on to build on our success, we are inevitably held back by ownership/money problems. We waited a decade to win a championship and we are already starting to fray at the edges and come apart. Anyone that thinks there is no issue with Suning’s ownership/management is in serious denial.

cuz presumably suning caused covid?

Barca are fucked. Real rae fucked. Juve are mega-fucked. Liverpool are gonna post huge losses. Dunno about City. Tottenham and Arsenal are out of the CL.

Everyone's fucked. It's hardly a Suning thing.


Could be worse, if we were PSG we'd have Lukaku or Lautaro threatening to leave on a Bosman in 12 months time.



We can still lafford a proper coach (Juve cant), we may have to sell one first teamer, but Juve will probably have to sell Ronaldo, Ramsey, Raabiot as a bare minimum this summer. Barca might get through this by ddelaying wages massively and cutting Messi's salary, but they arent in a great position. Reala might be able to do a signing but, again, they arent gonna be able to invest as heavily as they'd like to into their squad.

Roma, fuck knows - they're probaby gonna have to plusvalenza the shit out of their tema to afford Mourinho, esp when they dont make CL. Milan could be bout to lose two key players FOR FREE, and if they dont make the CL, they're gonna go broke just forcing redemption on Tonali anad perhaaps Tomori. They're in a bad bad situatioh as well.


People need to be less melodramatic.

Question is, with the big clubs crippled or at least handicapped, who's even going to buy the Ronaldo's, Lautaro's, Dybala's to alleviate the financial strain. Can't sell em all to England.

Yep, exactly. It's going to be a major cashflow thing. You might see some plusvalenza/inflated value swaps, but this is exactly why the plaayers should alal taake pay cuts. IMHO every top flight footballer should cut their salary 20% - they're being paid as if it was the boom years of 15-19, not the COVID years of 20-21.

Even when matchday revenues come back, it'll take aa couple of seasaons for everyone to fully recover, they'll need to sort their losses out and it takes time for money to start flowing again.

- - - Updated - - -

the other thing to remember is that, if other teams lower their level, our level doesnt need to be as high to win the league again. I dont think the top competition in the CL will need to take too many hits this window (because their revenues will be less impacted by COVID), but at least within Serie A - if Milan lose Donna and Calhanoglu, spend just to keep Tonali and Tomori, and still get led by Ibra... Roma (say) sell Zaniolo + Dzeko, Juve lose Chiellini, Ramsey, Rabiot, maaybe even Dybala/Ronaldo.... things look much less competitive eh?

And that's ignoring the (albeit I dont believe in it) threat of Juve/CL exclusion for 2 seasons.

Why doesn’t the club just have a donate button and ask the fans for money to support the club? Not too dissimilar to this forum.

Just have a statement saying something like we need you, the fans, to help us and give some jargon that we won the league etc. I’d throw a good 100 quid in easily and I’m sure others would too. They can give us a free supporters pin or some token shit like that but I bet you a good number would send some money in.

I'd buy shares. I'd like them to list the company. Sell maybe 30% of the equity, and then raise another 150-250m from a public listing. I'd buy some shares, tbh. I think aa 750m-850m vlauation for Inter looks pretty decent compared to Juve/Roma.

Club with (usually) hundreds of millions of euros in revenue, owned by a 20 billion euro corporation, asking fans for donations? Fans, who are the very same regular people, who have suffered the most from the pandemic. I know you mean it in a good way but I hope I never live to see such fucking bullshit in my life.

If it saves ‘the project’ then yes I’d donate to our club, our Inter. It’s an exceptional time and hopefully one we’ll never see again with any new virus and in my head the donations would be something to offset the lack of stadium attendances or at least the message would include that.

I’d also buy shares but I think you’d find that a lot of fans will just give money to keep the dream alive.

And obviously some regular people have suffered financially during this but some haven’t and those who haven’t might be willing to give.

It sounds kinda weird...when I donate my money to "improve contract" of the one who earns 100 times more than my salary :pokerface:
