Pretty sure this guy is done, with his physique and that type of injury we will be lucky if we get a handful of games out of him untill his contract is up.

Golden era Barcelona was always one Iniesta/Xavi/Messi injury away from being the golden era Barcelona.

This is how football works - every team has key first team players that they heavily rely on and without whom they are much less likely to win.

The whole “we are one key player awaya from being a title contender” is the stupidest narrative one can bring up in football. Like, no shit, really? As if our competition is not in the same position.
This. Pretty much every team has two players in every role (3 for goalkeeper). We actually have two extra players as I believe our squad has 25 first team players instead of 23. We have 6 defenders, 4 wingbacks, 8 midfielders, and 4 strikers, in addition to the 3 goalkeepers. The two additional players being Sensi and Agoume essentially. Pretty much every team needs to use a youth player as part of the squad when injuries come into play. Last season we had Carboni coming in when we had a striker shortage.

Obviously a lot of us felt that having two older players in Arnautovic/Sanchez would be risky in terms of injuries, but last season we had the same issue with Lukaku who had the biggest injury in his career I believe.

So the "Stoke City Superman" is out for a couple months, sensisational! Then Sanchez will get injured over the next international break, Inter will have only two strikers with Mkhitaryan and Klaassen as back ups. Probably best to experiment with a single striker during training and unveil the concept if Inter is comfortably ahead in the Salernitana this weekend.

What’s worrying is how off the pace he’s looked thus far. A player of his age and physique is going to take a while to get back in form after this injury. Remember how long it took Lukaku to get back in form last year? And he is younger and fitter. This guy is basically going to need another preseason before he’s useful.

So far this looks like the first big miss from Marotta/Ausilio when it comes to the “cheap” veteran signings.

Lautaro
Lol, I thought he had Albanian roots, cause in turkish Arnavut means Albanian. Anyway, in heated moments everyone may lose their mind. He doesn't look like a racist to me. A thug? Maybe...

Any word on when this idiot will be back? We desperately need him, sadly.

Rumor is that he might return in early November. Not sure about the source, but I've seen it on Twitter.

Yeah, we desperately need him back. And he needs to take advantage of his physicality. We need some authority up front.

Yesterday's and today's reports say that he will be back about 20 days earlier than expected, for the Atalanta game. Original estimate was Juventus game on November 26th. Reports now say Atalanta game on November 4th. Some say even a week earlier for the Roma match, but most likely the Atalanta match.

Important to have him back asap. Whether people think he was a good signing or not, we need him just to have Lautaro/Thuram fresh.

Well, him being here is still better than not having a bench option for one of Thuram or Lautaro. Yung Sarr is not going to get 1 minute, for sure.

Bringing in a striker in January is a must

Di Marzio: “Arnautovic suffered an injury against Austria and his condition needs to be checked. The Austrian striker was left down after a tackle and had come on as a substitute at the start of the second half. He got hurt around the 86th minute and in the end he still didn't come out of the match
