More importantly - or worrying - I see it as we've failed every time we've been up against it in the big, important matches and the pressure's been on. Two of the most lethargic and cowardly displays against Juventus I've ever seen an Inter side produce, Lazio away certainly, not to mention being up 2-0 in Dortmund, losing against a Barca side with nothing to play for and now two times in the Coppa against Napoli. If it happens this often, it's not just down to players not taking their chances.
The above are basically the season defining matches, and we've come up short mostly every time, and now the season, barring a win in Europa League (which, looking at Conte's European pedigree definitely won't happen) will be a disappointment, if not an outright fiasco.
Consider the league was there for the taking; a vulnerable Juventus, Milan being Milan, Roma undergoing a generation shift with a power struggle on a managerial level, Napoli being the worst they've been in a decade - only Atalanta and Lazio from the top teams have been better than they were last season, and considering, say, our record-high transfer window compared to their wage bill, and you can't help but feel we should be second, let alone closer to Juventus.
Only a fool would believe that so many top teams will be as bad next season, with maybe even Fiorentina gunning for top spots as well.
We're paying the coach the fourth most expensive wage in the world, and it seems like people are fine with marginal improvements. I'm not buying it.
