I know that everyone here worships this man but to me he has no respect for Manuel Pellegrini. Couldn't Jose had waited till after the man step down before he started talking about taking over Real Madrid. This is a disgrace. If jose really wanted a real challenge in his career why not coach a club that don't have alot of money like Valencia or villarreal? There is no challenge at Real Madrid when some of the best players are already there and its not like they are really struggling. La Liga is a two horse race and he will have it easy with all the money at his disposal. To me Jose is just full of shit.:rollani:

Are you sad because Jose didn't give Freshwater a chance?

Giancarlo Rinaldi reminds us that Inter had more than a special Coach at their disposal in this season’s Champions League triumph




Somewhere along the line, we all got sucked in. We forgot a vital element of Inter’s Champions League success which deserves to be celebrated as much as any other. One key ingredient has gone almost unheralded in the Nerazzurri’s triumph – namely, the players.

Of course, it is right to laud the Coach concerned. Anyone who oversees a victory in Europe’s most important competition deserves enormous plaudits. But aren’t we in danger of forgetting that it is the 11 players who step out on to the pitch who ultimately win matches?

This Inter side has been driven by a captain which any other side in Italy or beyond would love to have in its ranks. A model professional, a tireless worker and a player with incredible tactical flexibility. Only Diego Maradona seems to believe a side can be improved by leaving out Javier Zanetti.

The Nerazzurri also boast one of the most clinical finishers in the game, currently performing at the peak of his powers. Diego Milito’s cool strikes to defeat Bayern Munich were absolutely typical of an outstanding season. His sense of position and precision in front of goal have made defenders weep all year.

He has clearly thrived with Goran Pandev, Sammy Eto’o and Mario Balotelli operating in the wide positions. In addition he has had the back-up of Wesley Sneijder providing defence-splitting passes or sharing the goalscoring load. The Dutchman’s signing and his integration was a pivotal moment in the development of this team.

Another key acquisition was the bulky Brazilian defender Lucio. Many had their reservations about whether he had much more to give at the top level of the game and questioned if Inter really needed another veteran stopper in their ranks. He made them all think again with a series of imposing displays.

And what about Douglas Maicon? He finally showed Europe what Serie A followers have been raving about for some time. His driving runs and marauding incursions into the penalty box have helped to turn around plenty of games where the Nerazzurri were struggling. In full flight, there are few more impressive players operating on the planet at the moment.

Julio Cesar, too, has been a commanding presence between the posts. There have been some uncharacteristic fumbles but he remains a top-class net-minder. If a great team is built from the back, it could hardly have firmer foundations than the brilliant Brazilian.

Of course, it won’t be easy for this team to adjust if it loses the man in charge. But they are still a strong enough unit to continue winning for some time to come. After all, Chelsea lost the same individual a few years ago and have still managed to collect the odd trophy or two.

The role of the man on the bench overseeing operations remains a vital one, but sometimes it can be overstated. Massimo Moratti’s buying power and the players he purchased have been just as important. So, just like this article, it’s possible to celebrate Inter’s success without even having to name their Coach once.

Please, no Sinisa Mihajlovic. What has this man accomplished? Inter needs a quality coach not this guy. How about Guus Hiddink? I think he would be great.

:rollani: If that's your logic then there is no structure on any team in any sport. Remove Messi from Barca, they get significantly weaker. Ronaldo was removed from Man U, they go from being European finalists and League Winners to Mickey Mouse Cup Champions, Kaka from Milan, and the list goes on and on. What you speak of is not only improbable but also impossible unless we have world class replacements on our bench. No one can replace the best, that's why they're called the best.

Well, true..
Man U is still a very strong team even when Ronaldo or Beckham leaves...
a team can go down a bit, but Man U is always strong...
They don't go down to what we see in current Zebra or Milan...
I think Man U is the most structured team I have ever seen...
The old zebra also was very strong... when zidane left, they are still very strong.

Their managements know what coach to sign and what players to buy, and how to handle their players.

Inter has grown to be very strong at that...

but, I am gonna argue too much with you..
I have to respect you coz you open those threads :D

cheers!

After a year in which Real wins La Liga without losing a single game. Mourinho gets fired because Barca played more entertaining football.

It's inevitable, Real is too unstable.

well, I can't wait till Moratti appoints a new coach..

He make it clear that he has few people in his mind and he doesn't want any mou's puppet


Once the new manager appointed, I surely wanna talk about the man...
Mou is great history, but he is now in the past..

:mad: No if you disagree with me, debate me.

These teams bought world class players to replace those sold. They sold Beckham and soon after got Ronaldo. They sold Ronaldo and got Valencia.


I may have misinterpreted you but what I thought you meant was that with a world class player going they had a player already in the team to replace him. Not that they bought players.

Maybe that's what Mou finds most challenging. He wants to be the Coach whom they want to keep for 3 seasons. One thing Mou is not, is suicidal. He must have figured that with the present squad of players at Real, he could shape them into La Liga champions and even take them to the finals in Europe. Of course, he'll probably need to sign a couple of strong defenders as well to complete the new Galatico team.

Anyway, Real have too many top quality forwards to become a 'defensive" team. Mou will probably keep the good things about Real and improve on their bad.

OK Nyall... I can continue.. :)

You're quite right actually when I rethink about Man U...
at Man U, Ferguson is Man U....
When he let Ronaldo go... he knows who he's supposed to sign or how he will cope with the loss..
We can have that with Mou if he stays.., but he doesn't.. So we have to find something different.

I didn't see before..., but when I remember Zebra many years back.. They were very strong (Of course Moggi's control over italy players help)..

What I didn't understand back then is that we seem to have stars in every area of the field, but we could not win.. While zebra has combination of star and so-so players but dominated serie A... (Calciopoli explains most of it)..
I also see that Milan can keep players better than us.., Seedorf and Pirlo are the examples...

But all these diminish by time.. Branca has made our team compacts..

Yes, most of the times, we have to have ideas which players to buy.. Having great players from our second team are luxury we don't have..

And you're actually quite right,.. If we lost Branca, we will be in trouble, unless Moratti has a good back up..
But if we lost Moratti now, I think we will be in big trouble

Mourinho is not Stupid , just us he said one time in his Interview ” The biggest mistake i made was being loyal to Chelsea ” Yes he always thought he would be at Chelsea for a long time , be his own director and making his own transfer deals , every thing was going fine until Ibrahimovic decided he would buy the players and hired Avran Grant to be a director and a Spy for him . Well he was fired because once again the owner of a club has decided to run the club his way and not the Mourinho way like in Benfica . Before he was fired from Chelsea he was being chased by Madrid and Barce but he couldn’t leave Chelsea because he was loyal to the players and the team us a whole , but when it came to the club turn they didn’t hesitate sending him out on mutual concern because the club wanted the best for the club and so he was sacked , now Mourinho came to Inter was tasked with a job which he didn’t deliver in his first attempt , his star player left , his two first top signing have all flopped , he had no Link between attack and Midfield , he got Sniedger , got Lucio and Eto’o and bought a Midfielder who know one knew the actual role in Motta , plus a 30 year old CF and ship out a young Acqua , while we all thought ‘ What the Hell ‘ . Now he has put Inter on top of the Map again and now he can achieve his dreams by winning the ‘ Grand Slam ‘ us he called it , you want him to be loyal to Inter so that when things start going wrong he would be sacked and his courier could be on hanging again , his Courier is to win the grand slam , he said it at Porto , said it at Chelsea and said it many times at Inter .
He would not remain in Inter because he loves us , he has to be cold blooded this time so he can win the Grand slam to achieve his dreams he would not stay behind and than be fired one day .
There is no guarantee that by him sticking around at Inter he would get another opportunity to manage the only club he would be allowed to manage in Spain which is Madrid this Madrid flight would not come around again . If he wanted money or coach just any team he wouldn’t have accepted Inter and turn down the England job but this man has a plan and he makes decision according to his plans .
A question how many times do a top flight sack their manager for getting 95 points in a league ?
How many times do a club sack a manager who has won back-back-back title because he made one lapse in an interview ? Only Inter does that and that was a lucky job for Mourinho and so is the Madrid job , they know very well they don’t want his style of football but they are desperate for a title and so they contacted him , he has to take this deal for this ship would not return empty again , there is no way he would coach Barce because of us Inter , so whats your problem Inter fans shouldn’t you wish the best for someone who came in your life and made your childhood dreams come true . Or you would be greedy and want to keep him all for your self ?.

50 years before he landed Chelsea their first Title
45 years and he has Landed Inter everything...
How many years for Madrid?.

After Beckham left we were strong but the team weakened badly after we lost out Veron in a months time. Beckham infact was mediocre for us from 2000, gradually on a decline, its good we got rid of him at the right time.

Ronaldo leaving definitely had an impact, not very big thanks to Rooney and Valencia and the subsequent development of Nani.. Without Ronaldo we can win 90% of the matches but only the extra 10% differentiates between a winner and an also ran , it eventually hit us as the season progressed. The biggest mistake from the gaffer initially was benching Tevez in favour of Berbatov and finally replacing that Argie with that useless Owen. Once Rooney got injured our forward line was exposed. In terms of debts United are at a far more shabby state compared to both Juve and Milan.

I would say Juventus were also on a steady decline after Zidane left, Nedved stepped up but lacked the consistency to take over from the Frenchman.

Javier Zanetti,
We want an experienced coach to take over. Mihajlovic is inexperienced and he doesn't have any ideas or plans as to how stop a particular player or to prepare very well for an important match. Only Capello can do this job.

We also need a coach who is very close to his players. Good rapport is very important in our team. Our players have a very special relationship with Mourinho, and the next coach should be the same.

Its not because of one interview he got sacked, he histrionics were too annoying for any one to tolerate. Its started to fume when Roman went after Ronaldinho that was vetoed out by Jose, Roman bought in Shevchenko then Mourinho was completely against the buy and over a period of time Drogba overshadowed the Ukaranian. Same with Ballack, it was a combined buy from Roman and Jose but the player wasnt able to make his mark under Mourinho.

Roman was annoyed with Jose for treating his star players shabbily. He wanted Chelsea to play more attractive football, more marketable footballers but all Mourinho did was picking up fights with every other team that eventually made Chelsea the most hated team in England.

I can foresee the same fate at Real madrid, Perez wants his Real Madrid team to play attractive football and loved by rival fans to compete with Barca on every other front whilst Mourinho for sure would pick up fights with every other team. The problem with Real Madrid they have spent shitloads and won fuck all and ironically this appointment is more due to adversity than a plan for building a new team. They are in need of trophies first to satisfy their bigot fans and sponsors, adn there is no better option than Mourinho who can provide that.

Strange that Mou said Moratti must stay. It's almost impossible to see a Moratti-less Inter...unless something is going on behind the scenes? Could Moratti be planning/thinking to sell the club because of the latest Calciopoli shit? Is this shit causing some disturbance in the club, and could this have also affected Mou somehow?

Javier Zanetti,
How could Moratti leave? It's impossible. He is the number one Inter fan and he has no reasons to leave, unless if he goes bankrupt.
