The amount we are paying our coach to pay like total shit is alarming

I think Zhang Jr will soon start to flex his bossman muscles. He'll give Conte one more full year as it is. Try to bypass the CL group, try to stay in the hunt for Serie A, Coppa. But if he fails. He will clear the office in chinese cold style. And hire a bigger name than Conte.

Focus what, Coppa ends next week, there was no excuse to lose this.

I was quite joking because people always say "good to be out of EL/Coppa because we need to secure third spot" and so on.

That Eriksen miss was the end of the game. Would have been a match winning assist by Sanchez.

IMO Sanchez should have come on much earlier for Lautaro. Sensi should have come on for Barella also early in the 2nd half. And in the last 10 minutes, if we were still needing a goal, perhaps Esposito for De Vrij, not Ranocchia. Conte should have shown more aggression with his subs in the 2nd half.

But we cannot really complain. Both teams today (and both yesterday) looked way short of fitness which is only expected. Cannot judge the team on this game, they will need a few weeks to get into gear.
It isn't the fitness that worries me but the lack of creativity or common sense on the part of Conte. I don't think they can be fixed.

where do you find this creativity if our wingers are Young and Candreva..i don't want to hate on Candreva because he really improved this year and can help us a lot defensive. But offensive? Today he had like 2-3 good chance too score or pass the ball for Eriksen/Lukaku that was in front of the goal
The only thing he does is shoting and trying to make a dificult cross to Lukaku, he has no quality.

Young even worse.

Why do we get Tonali if we don't have a good wingers, that's what i don't understand. The problem is not the midfield...

So disappointed not to be in the final. Not a great performance but Napoli were dreadful, Juve will eat them alive in the final.

I thought the subs could've come a lot sooner than they did, considering there can be 5 now. All that time without calcio & Inter and now that old familiar feeling of disappointment, months of hope killed in 90 mins.

Don't make excuses for Conte, we got him everyone he wanted except for Vidal. He chose to contruct our team based on man utd rejects and thats what he got.

That’s the most disappointing part. I thought this break would actually benefit us. I should have known better

We were bad but I think in Serie A we'll be better.

We have Sampdoria and Sassuolo at home next.

Candreva was awful.

i don't really defend Conte because i would also like to have a new solution where we can play without Candreva and Young. Maybe he will try a 4312 in the league, starting from Sunday against Samp. What do we have to lose? nothing, we are to far from Lazio. If he finds new solutions, we could have a realistic chance for the EL.. but with this shit we played today we can forget everything. Specialy with Lautaro having he's head somewhere else. Lukaku and Eriksen alone can't make the diffrence, specialy not in this formation.


Really, fuck man.. when will we ever see Inter in a final again. It's 8 fucking years ago when we played against Milan in the Supercoppa. And 9 years without a trophy... it's sad.

Conte is not changing to 4-3-1-2 ever. Conte could be coaching U11 girls and he will do 3-5-2.

Since eriksen has come in, the strikers are getting less direct opportunities. There is less interplay between the strikers and less play where the strikers are turning towards goal. There was only ONE TIME kaku-lm10 tried to interplay; that is wholly unacceptable.

Lukaku should never be a playmaker. If he's not fit/fast/motivated enough to drop, lay off, turn, and sprint into the box to finish off chances, then it's useless for him to drop.

LM10 didn't get a single chance all day. He created a shot from a nothing burger on the spin. That is unacceptable also.

You pay strikers to score goals because that is their skillset, not make nice plays and buildup in midfield. Having candreva, young and moses getting the chances is just dumb.

We haven't been able to find an extra gear or create those special moments in most of the crucial games this season and that is very worrying moving from year 0 to year 1.

Its super concerning how we played considering how much money we've spent on players and of course, conte's salary. Like there's not much improvement since spalletti's days. One may argue that its been a while since we played but same can be said about Napoli. Just goes to show how fucked we'd be if we were to go to playoff route.

this is simply not true.. lautaro is doing nothing starting from the first match in 2020. If the passing with Lukaku is not working it's more because of him, not because of the system and Eriksen. You can see it when Sanchez got in. Lukaku was more focused to stay in front of the goal while Sanchez created the space, it was a really diffrent set up. Lautaro was the whole game invisibile which made things hard for he's team mates.

My first worry about playing the cup before the league was that players weren’t gonna be fit and be sloppy. If the guys would of have a couple games more in them, we could have crush them. We created chances and played better that I expected considering the 3 month stop.

Only thing I’m mad about was sensi getting 5 minutes.
Barella should have come out early in the 2nd half.
Eriksen needed sensi to help him create something since lukaku and Lautaro were pretty much useless.

Once Biraghi, Sanchez and Moses came on conte ideas stared working cuz they had fresh legs and weren’t mentally drained like everyone else from the physical effort they were putting on.

Ospina made 2 superb saves. That was the difference.

Conte couldn't out coach Gattuso. Dear me.

Conte's love child Candreva makes the easy things look hard.

LM10's desire to eat bench at Barca is growing. Conte's 'dream killing' set up is detrimental.

Conte said 'we deserved to go to the final, we were better over both legs, we created more chances in this game, we were dominant...' dafaq is wrong with this guy ?!

It's ok, Tonali is coming. He's the missing piece of the puzzle that'll help turn Candreva into Ronaldo and LM10 into Messi.
