He cannot play the position he is currently playing, you have to have a major gas tank to do it, or be very smart with your energy consumption, and he doesn't have either. And you can't play him as a defender cos he is a midget. The Bologna goal we conceded last season should have been a major red flag. His best role is being a sub and coming 20 min before the end when we are chasing the result. That's it, that's his role in a club that fights for something meaningful...

Players make mistakes. It happens every game to every team. What I saw yesterday was how teammates were unwilling to bail out one another. All afraid to make a mistake or be caught in another’s mistake.

Dimarco lost focus but where is Bastoni and Handanovic. Handanovic could have tried to leave his line and not allow a 5’5 forward score a header.

You will have Handanovic supporters saying that he is not at fault but he is the last line of defence. What’s the point of having a keeper who can’t save you a game. And at this point Handanovic is not capable of doing anymore than the minimum.

Handa should've done better with Anderson's goal, he has all the time when the ball is in the air before its reached Anderson's head.

Where they counted 19 shots. Apart of Dumfries header, there was zero clear chances. Lazio could have scored like 3 more goals though.
Yeah, sometimes the official stats are either misleading or given the team a benefit of a doubt. My favorite is the pass accuracy, sure it's a high percentage going back and forth in midfield or recycling back to the defense, but as far as attacks are concerned, Inter by my eyes was woeful at best.

Handanovic is not a GK that goes out, he never was. And i dont think it will change now that he's 38.

I mean, we all comment on individual mistakes cos that's kinda of a quick fix, but when you can mention every single player from your defense and have a convincing argument how they fucked up, then something is wrong with your defensive setup and tactics motherfucker...

Even Anderson admitted Handanovic made it easy for him to score with a header by not coming out.
True but when you have two defenders there that should make it hard, the GK elects not to go out unless it's within the box.

Here is the problem, we won't. So far tactically he is one dimensional as it gets, he will only just shuffle players and that's it. His formation, tactics and approach are the same as day one. Even conte who everyone deemed stubborn and rigid had more flexibility.
Let's sack him then and shit on the next manager

It's very obvious that Inzagi is not on the level of inter class, it's unforgivable what he did last season, a serious club would have sacked him after leading the league on January /February by 7 or 8 points and a match at hand, but he eventually lost it, how on earth can that be explained! This guy has no mental strength and lacks technicality too, his substitutions are always bad, because he can't read games accurately.
Totally agree, but who's next? Sarri?

Dimarco already did this in few matches, nothing new here.
And the interesting thing is that he is not a central defender by nature, he is a good substitute for the left wing-back.

I have lots of respect for your posts and knowledge in this forum, which is why I want to ask you the following:

If Mourinho was currently managing Inter, which keeper do you believe he would start, Onana or Handanovic?

(Expecting neither post, lobbied for another keeper )

I don't think there's a way to know.

The Casillas affair was not standard where he'd get the old guard out.

He'd use the one that he'd trust the most.

Anyone who thinks this team is capable of being a contender for the Scudetto is delusional.

Saying that we competed until the end last season and that squad only needed deeper reserves and more clinical finishing upfront is simply wrong.

All we have done in preparation for this season is add a few pieces to the fringes of our squad in the hope they will make the difference at crunch time. But the bottom line is that we lack players that present real alternatives to our starting eleven. We have zero pace and zero creativity and absolutely no alternative options to address those shortcomings. Making some cosmetic changes by adding and shifting a few minor pieces in the summer will make little to no real difference.

Of course, everything the club has been able to do during the summer is tempered by what Suning can afford. But all the hype that I have read about how we have strengthened and are the most complete squad in Serie A is just bullshit and the result against Lazio proved that.

If inter consult me I can do the searching for free to get a good coach, there are so many hidden good coaches, inter only went for Inzagi because he plays 3-5-2 like conte, not knowing Inzagi approach is different.

I kind of desagree our squad is THAT bad and I'm beginning to think Inzaghi has so far been unable to put them to good use. It's not like we are in a league with Liverpool, City and Spurs.

These teams, at the moment, Roma, Milan, Rube, are jokes in a lot of relevant ways if you look at them clearly.

But, we fucked up our mercato, and now that gap can only be closed by a coach who adds a lot of everything tactically and mentally.

It's unfortunate for Inzaghi in that way. He could have cruised throug Serie A had Suning not imploded, he is good enough for that imo but now he's exposed and every bad result will fall on him, because basically that postion of a coach is the only one atm which can do something, improve something.

Say what you will but Barella is solid, as well as Brozovic, Lautaro, Bastoni, Dumfries, Skriniar, really great players to have and watch play, but without a Messi, the only one who can emply them lethaly is a coach.

because we lost a game? Juve draw already 2 times and didn't really look good. Milan was also a disaster against Udine and Atalanta. It's really early, everything can change from here to June. And honestly we would have won or at least draw against Lazio if Inzaghi would have made the right decisions, im sure. After the 1-1 we were much better.
Its every year the same thing, people will start saying we are the best team if we beat Milan next week. It's like the season get decided after one game, thats not how it works... for me the favourites are still Milan and Inter. Juve changed a lot, too many new players in this 2 years, they need time + with Allegri i don't see them to make great things.
But at the end there is not really a big favorite like in the other leagues, for example City in the Epl or Bayern in Bundesliga. If Inter and Milan should fuck up, Juve and maybe even Napoli could still get a chance to win it.
