Week 26 fixture vs Napoli - currently 11th in the table.

I think its time for Mancini to rest Cambiasso - also Maxwell may not be fit for this match - lets see.

JC
Maicon - Burdisso - Rivas - Chivu
JZ - Maniche - Viera
Figo
Crespo - Suazo

Also may be Jiminez to play a few mins in the 2nd half. But lets completely rest Cambi for this match - we dont even need to have him on the bench - we got Pele for that and also probably call up couple of youth team players.

No need to rest any player since that we don't have a Champions League game this week. We already got away with it when we faced Roma, so let's not ruin it in Napoli. ;)

I demand a full squad, and maximum possible minutes for Figo and Jimenez. They will be our key players against Liverpool.

More minutes should be given for Rivas. He's the only defender who'll be on the bench for Liverpool.

Napoli
Disqualified: Domizzi.
Cautioned: Gargano, Garics.

Inter
Disqualified: Burdisso.
Cautioned: Cambiasso, Chivu, Cordoba, Materazzi, Vieira

Burdisso can't play. Too bad coz he was impressive against Roma.
Seems like it's gonna be Chivu-Rivas in CB.

More than a result, I want to see a dominating Inter in this game. We have been poor this year but the Zanetti goal may have just lit the sparks in the team.

On Friday, Ivan, Cesar, Ibra, Chuchu, Cruz, & Suazo trained separately.
Does this mean we won't see Chuchu & Suazo tomorrow?

Napoli is in a disastrous from ATM, anything but a win is a scandal.

And that regardless of our own pathetic form.

Simply a duty win.

Should be a packed house. Neapolitians are a passionate bunch and have one of the most intimidating atmosphere's in Italy/Europe. They played us very well at the Meazza at the beginning of the season, where tbh, we were in much better form than we are now. Napoli hasn't done well either though, with only a couple wins since New Years. They're also missing their top scorer, ex-rubentino, Marco Zalayeta.

I think Cuchu needs a game to rest. He's been looking a little tired the last few games. Give Maniche a chance.

We should watch out for Lavezzi and Hamsik. They are the best players. I just want us to win. Lets keep Roma at bay.

I'm expecting a win from the boys, but more importantly, a decent performance to show that we can play better, and at least give us some confidence before the Liverpool game.

In another way, it's good that there's a chance that we might be able to see as to how the duo of Rivas -- Chivu perform coz we should be open to both Rivas -- Chivu & Burdisso -- Chivu duo for the Liverpool game.

The problem is Mancini has the same idea in his mind. If he doesn't, then we will see Matrix there.;)

I definitely agree. No more excuses. Napoli does have some talented players indeed but if we are to be champions, we have to win most games against sides at the lower half of the table. Napoli's home record is not half bad, it's their away record that's atrocious. They are 6-3-3 at home, 18-13 goal record. But that should never be an excuse for us not getting a full 3 points there.

This game could show if we'll be able to gain our old form before the pool clash.

It would also be great to see Rivas -- Matrix, with Chivu in LB. :)

I thought Mancini said that Ibra would be back for this game? I wouldnt have mind seeing Ibra play in this one, to gain a little bit of match fitness, we could have rested him next week against Reggina. I guess he has not recovered from his injury yet.

Guess not. Probably some good minutes for Balotelli are in the works. We definitely need to crush Napoli and keep the excitement up.

I have a feeling we are heading for our 3rd draw. Napoli are a very strong team, but the atmosphere at San Paolo is so intimidating.
Napoli probably had the most successful transfer season in the league. They have some pretty good players, including the Maradona look alike Lavezzi, that guy is fat, he is short, and well he can score goals, but Sosa, Hamsik, Gargano and Cannavaro all are very good players.
