Are you saying Lautoro on purpose? Its really bugging me :ROFLMAO:

Listen he's 24 and in Serie A he is scoring 1 every 2 games (6 in 12 I think so far) he's still learning, Icardi (i realise he was mainly solo), playing off Lukaku, now Dzeko will only help him grow as a player, learn from the experienced players, same with Argentina playing with Messi, he will grow into his own and still has everything it takes to be "our guy" also can't be easy adapting to different strike partners as he is on his 3rd now..

No one here knows the behind closed doors politics on why Hakan took the penalty, it could be a number of reasons. He doesn't seem low on confidence but well could be, its again a learning experience for him.

Toro has to be 1 of 6 players immediately on teamsheet (defence + Brozo + Barella) without question.

Some rumours that Conte wants him. I don't see Tottenham bid 90mln for Lautaro, unless if they sell Kane somewhere.
I can't imagine Lautaro running in his arms, for some reason I never saw any special bond between Lautaro and Conte. I remember the "fenomeno del cazzo" from last year.
I'm fairly certain Conte would rather spend all his money on Lukaku.

Absolutely no credible rumors of this. He just signed a new contract, there is no reasons for him to leave Milano behind him. Let alone switch from Inter to Spurs.

He deserved that goal he scored and the foul was nonexistant. In my eyes the refs totally fucked him over.

I think he had a better game than Dzeko before the goals but again a lot of confusion from our two strikers yesterday, against a better opponent it could have been fatal. Great pressing and activity though.

Actually thought he was pretty good yesterday. Just a really shit touch in the first half when he could have been through.

He also absolutely got screwed yesterday. Either the push/trip on him was a penalty, or his goal should have stood.

Yeah that was quite shithousery from the ref. It's either or, not the one we saw. Both were relatively weak cases but the policy should stay the same.

Btw, nice penalty yesterday. So important for this guy to have confidence in his penalties.

The more I think about it, the more I laugh at the fact that Lautaro was in the Balon D'or top30. I understand people don't have the time to regulary watch ALL the players, but how National successes impact Balon D'or votes is silly. Same thing every time. Sometimes it's fair, often not.

Ofc, because his Argentina wasn't doing good and he wasn't their main striker anyways. NT success is so more important for Balon D'or placements, it's unreal

I know it's none of my business, but why don't you guys just be happy for the fact that an Inter player is being mentioned among the nominees?

Although this trophy lost its meaning in 2010, I am genuinely happy for our boys. Inter is getting more recognition, popularization which means more fans, more money from marketing and etc are incoming.

Higauin was the main striker for Argentina back then. Milito didn’t even get off the bench in the World Cup till the final group game if I’m not mistaken. That probably played a huge role.

True but messi won that year and it was his argentina that sucked atleast milito was not seeing the field...
I mean in 2010 messi sucked in both the CL and the WC jet he somehow won it. Both robben and sneijder had amazing seasons with club and NT and should have finished above messi, not a fan of mueller but the dude won the golden boot in 2010 won The BL and was in the CL final. Somehow messi had a better season by winning laliga....

Edit lol i m an idiot ofcourse muller did not win the WC in 2010, i still think my point stads

It's laughable because it discredits our better players including Brozo, Skrinair, DeFry who had bigger impacts and were more crucial to our scudetto success, a hattrick versus Crotone won't make me blind to that fact. But the publicity is welcome.

Don't try to make sense with Ballon d'Or awards. It's pointless. There are no fixed criteria. International football matters only when it fits them. It didn't matter in 2010 when other players had a much better tournament than Messi. It didn't matter in 2012 when Spain won it with an outstanding Iniesta. It didn't matter in 2014 when Germany won World Cup with a phenomenal Neuer. But it matters now. Suddenly Copa America became a prestigious trophy but no one cared about it when Alexis and Vidal won it twice with Chile.

If it's gonna help Lautaro play better, sure. Otherwise I don't care, it's a popularity contest

Were they good for their national teams though?

And I would disagree they outperformed him in even serie A. LuLa duo were highly regarded in the last two seasons in Europe. Yeah, Lautaro isn't faultless, but it's not like Brozo, Skriniar and DeVrij don't make mistakes. They all had howlers at some points. I clearly remember how Skriniar allowed Lazovic and Vlahovic scoring goals against us which led to losing points.

Lautaro has more value because he scored some fancy goals, and he is tricky player, which is rated. I won't mind if we sell him for 80-90mln, provided whole sum is invested in new players.
