People were shitting on Cambiasso while he was playing here in his last seasons and singing praises to Cambiasso playing for Leicester and when he finally stopped playing. Just the natural way of not making sense

Inzaghi said he's injured but he will travel with the team to Florence.

That would be a great. He deserves to remain here, especially after spending most of his career through the difficult times in this club. At least he won trophies, but he should have won way more considering that he was world class for many years. Him and Icardi were the only class players we had through the banter era, and also the most consistent performers during that time.

He never seemed like a leader in the pitch, but obviously youngsters can learn a lot from him if he eventually joins the coaching staff.

Interisti should only feel blessed that had such a quality goalkeeper for many years.

It would be cool if Samir stuck around as a goalkeeper coach. He could probably still play top level football for someone if he wants to. But he makes too much to be backup for us tbh.

Palacio? Kovačić? Rolando? I guess Brozović also came in the banter era.

I feel it's weird the first 3 are often not mentioned even tho they were huge for us at the time.

Rolando was good, but was only with us for one season. Kova was exciting to watch, with his mazy dribbles, but didn't have much end product. Agreed on Palacio.

Doesn't matter if Rolando was here for only one year. He was brilliant every time I watched him.

In all honesty, Palacio wasn't that good, at least to me. I have always appreciated his contribution here, but he was nothing spectacular or that "wow" impression which Icardi or Handanovic brought in Inter.

Kovacic was nowhere near that level. He was a huge prospect back then. but way too raw. Rolando was also at least decent but then again, he wasn't that good. Though Brozo is also a special player, but it took some time until he become a better version of himself.

he was fine in the first season but rapidly went down hill.

Kovacic was missing a lot of impact.

could make the same video for every single goalkeeper that has been playing 10 or more seasons.

I'm not trying to knock handa
But for the observers who have stated his lack of movement due to his decline with age,

I've noticed in the clip above some of the statue impressions where from a fresh faced handa when he was younger....

Maybe just has a slight issue with placement.
Who knows?

I invite you to watch some of Buffon's moments, who's supposed to be the most acrobatic/reflex goalkeeper of the last 20-25 years.


Third Roma goal.


First Milan goal.


First Lazio goal.


Mexico's goal.


Croatia's winning goal.


And I wasn't even looking...........

Oh, also Korea's first goal here :lol:



Imagine being considered the greatest goalkeeper in the world at the time and you concede 3 goals without moving out of 5 at the World Cup where you're a top 5 favorite to win it. By FIF standards you suck :lol:
