Hakan picked the best time to get injured. We have the luxury to play Asllani somewhat consistently in this part of the season, and consistency is what Asllani needs and deserves. It's game of two halves for Kristjan. As long as he learns from his mistakes, it's absolutely fine.

People also need to remember on what level we were with that version of brozovic. This isn't banter era anymore where we just fight for cl spot and don't have anything to lose giving certain players a chance. This team fights for highest prizes and plays under immense pressure every game. Every single weakness will cost us dearly.
People also needs to remember that we don't have money, and have to work with free agents and low cost deals. We cannot afford to.have Frenkie de Jong for vice Hakan.

People have to remember what Brozovic was like at his age.

Let's also remember that Brozovic was an attacking midfielder or box2box midfielder until Spalletti slotted him as a deep playmaker in the winter of 2018 because his transfer to Sevilla got blocked.

Morale of the story: Brozovic wasn't thrown as a regista before he was ready. And if he did, you'd all be calling for his head because he wouldn't be able to pull it off.



This FIF Asllani fetish isn't helping anyone. Last such player I recall people fantasized over was Karamoh.

Sure, but we’re still on a Banter Budget. All things considered, Asllani is fine for now unless we stubble across an obvious and affordable upgrade.

I can understand all the issues people have with Asllani, and on top of the ones being mentioned, I can add one more thing he can improve on, which is when he is the first go up to the opponent with the ball, the pressure is not enough; but he is also not supposed to be that guy, and that space should not be created in the first place.

Despite I think we all think he is a better player in a different position, I can see why Inzaghi insists on developing him as a regista; cause there are a lot of players out there can do a fine job, but not a spectacular job as a regista, like Lobotka, Ricci who are more natural to that position, but you can also see the ceiling of them. You won't be seeing them doing what Asllani did today (scoring), nor the direct key assists, you might see better progressive plays, and helping his teammates to retain possessions by providing options etc. basic regista stuffs.

Now imagine Asllani finally gets the hang of it, and with his natural good traits. That would be a candidate of being the top midfielder.

The question is is Asllani a guy that can learn, again his improvements had been shown time over time:
  1. He doesn't try every long passes opportunity he gets anymore
  2. He retains possession and progress the team better (Not good enough, like how to open himself up and sometimes dribble at the wrong time but improved nonetheless)
  3. He knows when to run up and when to do direct forward passes better
  4. His interception timing and position
  5. His running distances
  6. How aggressive he is when he is on a physical duel (he actually showed another improvement, is he knows to take up the optimal spot despite knowing he will not be winning the header)
  7. His crossing strength (slightly, but improved)
These all shows he has improved on things he is not naturally good at to begin with; it is not a blind random fetish on some young players. Not all potential players are even Inter material potential, but this one can be one. Showing he can learn and not being the same player again and again is the key difference.

With our budget, having him as a back up and a development project is not bad at all.

I can see Brehme`s point and he is right.
Regista is arguably the msot difficult position to learn as a player. Many great registas started as other type of player and with time they developed in a regista (Pirlo, Modric, de Rossi, Brozo). Motta also. From my memory I remember only Xavi as a regista from day one. Usually it takes years until someone is bossing in this position.

Despite the drama going on, he actually did good overall, at least more good than bad.
The stats does not tell the entire pic, but it tells part of it, it also helps cause Asllani is playing for a strong Inter team.
To only focus on the flaws of Asllani and want him to be replaced is a bit crazy for a 21 year old promising prospect.

He played roughly 500 mins (around 5.5 games) in Serie A, and a lot of them are 10-15 mins before the games, end, got 2 assists and 1 goal.

Just trying to show the brighter side a bit. Doesn't mean I don't agree with the things he needed to improve on.

I like him as a mezzala, as a creator. But in the build up phase, he isn't yet good at finding the right positions to receive the ball and he tries to dribble out of trouble too many times. I've seen him play better in defence, but also, he holds back too much.

He'll get better. The problem is that I don't see him running as much as Barella or Mkhitaryan either, so maybe it's this role or he isn't right for this Inter.

I'm ok with Asllani contribution. Mistakes happen, even to the most experienced players. He's young and can learn from his mistakes. If he doesn't improve in a few years we can let him go.

Even if he makes mistakes, he is still useful. That is what matters. I know some people don't agree, but even Medel, Gagliardini and Vecino also had their uses and played just good enough to contribute in a positive fashion.

While certain players like Vidić, Forlan, Kuzmanović, Pereira, Dalbert were shit 95% of the time.

I can't think of any world class registas who from the get-go started their career out in the position. Asllani needs to play more forward role for his development, and from what I'm seeing so far, he suits there more.

Just hoping that this back-up regista saga ends soon and Inzaghi finds different role for him next year (which I kinda doubt lol)

As a Calha backup, I actually prefer Kuzma over Medel, Gag, Vecino combined :lol:

We had injuries the whole season, you just don't notice it because we won so many matches. I don't want to use injuries as an excuse, because we have shown this season that we can win even when starters are missing. How many games have started with all the starters (that means Pavard-Acerbi-Bastoni with Dumfries and Dimarco on the wings) - I don't know if it's 15 times in the league this season.

I'm not scared of injuries unless if it's a horrible injury... luckily we had no nasty injuries except for Sensi still being made of glass.

I think that the truth lies somewhere in the middle re Asllani. While I cannot deny that I see him becoming a very good, maybe even great player under the right circumstances, I do think that he is our biggest weakness after Audero. He is not experienced enough for the highest of levels.
He should be playing in a team not aspiring to win the Serie A and Champions League as a regular. You need a leader on his position and you just see that there are too many leaders interacting with him, which is why he hides and loses himself at times.

Technically his class cannot be overseen though.

Only one I can think of is Busquets but he did have Xavi and Iniesta next to him, and didn't look nearly as good after their eventual retirement.

Which basically shows Busquets was never world class. Am i right, @brehme1989 ? :D

Weren't people calling for his head for a season or two straight? :lol:

What fetish? All i see is people bashing a 21 year old for our players falling mentally. The whole game we played at 30% of what we have been playing this season.

Like we had that shit game vs verona..

Dude is 21 years old and the Regista role is not easy to play under Inzaghi. He has a lot of potential and will get better in every aspect of his game. Good luck finding a better player with his age in this role for cheap

He needs more experience. Give him trust and time
