Personally im angry at everyone. Conte is not the only problem. We had 2 great chances to go 2-3, and it's not the first time that Lautaro and Perisic are missing so many chances.
Even for the goals we are conceding Conte can't make much. Hakimi fail, no one jumping at Ramos goal and the third goal was also ridicolous.

We got from losing to almost wining and then at the end fucking lose it...

Not really looking to put the blame solely on Conte per se but from what I've seen these last few games the boys are just too static. Not enough movement up front mainly; midfield is stretched too apart bc of it. Players misfiring left and right not really helping either.

We'll be ok though, Forza Inter boys

I have been following this team for the past 16 years. After triplete, we have a certain problem: Chickening out.

Every single coach chickened out in important games. From Spalletti to Ranieri, from Benitez to Conte.

We have a world-class playmaker in our squad in Eriksen, yet we fail to utilize him. Conte's persistence to use 3-5-2 blocks him. Instead, we have a perfect squad for a 4-3-1-2, yet we avoid this.

Plus, we RARELY play with a creative, technical attacking midfielder. We always choose physicality over creativity. And I blame this choice for our failures. It is like there is a club policy stating coaches "you must field players who play physical, creativity is BANNED in this club".

I honestly don't get this.

Yesterday, we basically invited Real for the 3rd by substituting Barella with Gags. Class was out, mediocrity was in. If we want to be European protagonists, then we must aim for wins instead of draws as a CLUB. Take Barella out, put Eriksen/Nainggolan in, simple as that. You make a BOLD statement with this substitution; "I want to win". If Conte had put Eriksen/Nainggolan instead of Barella when it was 2-2, then it could have been Real who chickened out.

I couldn't have said more. The three man defense will get us no where. Just look at Atalanta who ended up being thrashed 0-5 at home by Liverpool after using the pathetic 3 man defense system.

It seems its was Inter who chickened out when Modric coming :eek:blivious:

That's obviously why Zidane win CL 3 times and Conte 0.

I'm curious what instructions did Conte give to Gagliarshitni before entering the pitch.

"I want you to give our fans (Juventini) something to cheer for!"

Hope Sensi comes back for the next game.

You're dellusional if you think: (1) Sensi is going to be available for the next game; and (2) that he will stop the spiral.
