Only positive note here is Benjamin Pavard looks rock solid defensively.


Asllani is being a total liability and this shows why some of us were screaming for an actual DLP to be signed.

He's never available in the right spot, keeps hiding behind defending players, shies away from his role and just tries to dictate the play by pointing out to his teammates where the ball should go (which is actually one of the good things about him as he has awareness, just not self-awareness) and the worse thing is that he makes his teammates shaky, both defenders and central midfielders.
Whole team is dysfunctional because our most crucial player is absent and his replacement is not really present.


I am not very fond of how we're shaped either when we have the ball but I think that's a side effect from what I said above.


It's amazing that we're just 1-0 down...

With Hakan injured, not playing Thuram seems an odd choice now. Desperately missing someone to link the play.

Barella wake up.
Also benchin Dimarco didnt make sense at all.

He is 21 years old, don’t be so harsh on him, Inzaghi made a blunder putting in such an inexperience player against a very aggressive team, it was always going to spell problems… I honestly don’t understand why he thought it a good idea to field him and Arnautovic, it was an idiotic call

tbh, at some point we need to stop defending young players and they actually need to perform. Yes, there should always be leeway, but you also need them to actually step up. I cant think of anything Assclowni has actually shown at Inter so far tbh

Pavard is the only one who hasn't shat his pants. Embarrassing team performance :lol:

As long as we don't concede again, I believe in our players to step up in the second half

We are clearly too slow

I can only assume the plan is to bore Real Sociedad to sleep and then strike

The whole side looks shell shocked. We’re lucky it isn’t 3-0. Sociedad are running circles around us.

I don't know why everyones blaming the strikers? There's literally no link up play whatsoever happening in midfield

I don't.

I would if some of those were replaced by the bench guys, though.

Exactly. He should hone his skills as a starter against mid and bottom table Serie A skills, not against a team that kept Real Madrid at bay last weekend.

Although, you could say the same thing for the whole team so far :lol:
