This.

This is the one that annoys me to no end.

Not Gabigol, a player playing in a position where we're pretty stacked, and whose purchase is clearly a doing from upstairs.
Not Pinamonti, who has to battle it out with (dare I say it?) the best forward in Serie A.
Not Gnoukouri, who plays in midfield, and has/had to battle it out with Brozovic, Kondogbia, Banega, Joao Mario and the likes - all clearly superior players.

But Miangue.

The few times he's played, he's been our best left-back. Full stop. And that's not an overestimation based on his age or me wanting to see more of him.
Better than Nagatomo, who's been a great servant for this club for a lot of years, but is clearly past it.
Better than Ansaldi, who's a complete dud (I called it, by the way).
Better than D'Ambrosio, who's better on the right.
And better than the walking injury Santon.

So why is Pioli preferring experience and conservatism for the sake of conservatism, instead of giving this kid the chance to hit the ground running? I'm not going to blame the coach completely, since, what's the point of tinkering with a winning squad? But this exactly has been one of the major shortcomings of this club for....all the time that I have supported it, basically.

Suning have publicly said, that one of their goals during their ownership, was for Primavera players to rise through the ranks, join the first team squad and then hopefully do something meaningful.

So why is it when someone impresses like Miangue has done (at the very least you can argue, that he hasn't looked out of sorts - and even then he has so much more upside than any other leftback in our squad), we don't insist on letting them keep impressing? This happened with Benassi, it happened with Gnoukouri, it happened to an extent with Duncan, and it's happening with Miangue now.
But no - if we do buy young players, they have to be foreign (Brozovic, Kovacic, Barbosa, and everyone else you can name) or from another club (Gagliardini) - and then they get a lot of chances to impress. Why don't we maintain that policy, for our own players, who have come up through our own ranks? Why didn't we give Puscas or Bonazzolli the leeway we've given Kondgbia, for instance?


It's mindboggling and especially infuriating, when Miangue plays in a position which is clear for all to see is our weakest link. Tell me: if we're not going to buy a proven, quality fullback in this window anyway, where's the downside in selling one of Ansaldi and Nagatomo, and have Miangue be the first reserve for the position? I have a feeling, if we gave him chances, he'd make the position his in a heartbeat - and who knows?- maybe we'd then save the 20 odd million euros we're planning to spend on Rodriguez come summer.

Instead, a week from now, we'll hastily send him on a boat on route to Sardinia, and we'll never hear from him again. It's the Inter way.

Ansaldi a complete dud eh?! Wow
He is our best attacking FB,he is better as a WB matter of fact.He has good dribbling skills but he isn't rly a good defender.He is way better than Dumbrosio for example tho.

Well...I can understand that people have their own way of seeing things...some can't see that tho
Their way or the high way...

If theres any of our youngster to get shot at that pos is no other than Dimarco, he is way above Miangue.

Well it`s quite simple, club staff and management decided they were simply not good enough to play here. At least not at that time. And so far, it's all true (Puscas, Bonazzolli).
Benassi could still develop further, while Duncan remains to be seen.

I also liked his performance for us and would like to see more of him, but with Nagatomo and D`ambrosio still here, there are unfortunately low chances for that to happen. We are pushing for the Champions League spot and maybe it's too much pressure for Miangue, or even better, they don`t want to risk losing points because of personal errors. I know, I know, D`ambrosio made much more mistakes so far, but hey, even people on FIF say he`s improving. :yao:

Miangue saving us for paying 20m+ for a top quality full back is just wishful thinking, it rarely actually happens in real life. Maybe one day he will reach a good level, but today he is not regarded like that. Even if we do sell him, I`m sure INTER will include a buy-back option on him.

I also have been more impressed by Dimarco but Miangue's physicality is hard to find in a fullback.

So, he again seems close to join Cagliari:

19-year-old Inter left-back Senna Miangue is reportedly close to finalising a loan move to Cagliari.

The Belgian has made two starting appearances in the Europa League for the Nerazzurri, in addition to one outing in the league.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, there was an initial stalemate between the two sides, but now it seems like an agreement can be reached.

The Antwerp-native has represented Belgium at all international levels and moved to Italy with Inter in 2013 after spending time in the youth academies of Beerschot FC and Royal Antwerp.

His performances rewarded with a contract until 2020 with the Nerazzurri, Miangue should complete the move to the Sardinian side within the next 2-3 days

Inter, Miangue off to Cagliari: Transfer details

The agreement between Inter and Cagliari regarding the young defender class of 1997, Senna Miangue, is almost official. While the end of negotiations should come between tonight and tomorrow, the deal should be of a loan with option to buy, and counter option to buy back for Inter. The youngster has chosen to play for Cagliari also thanks to fellow Belgian Radja Nainggolan, who spoke very highly of Cagliari.

So he won't become Club Trained will he? Kinda defeats half the point in the loan if we sell them at the end

It's a good move for him. If he isn't going to get any chances here, then it's best to get some minutes elsewhere. The option to buy (and buy back) gives Cagliari motivation to actually play and develop him.

Better than D'Ambrosio, who's better on the right.
And better than the walking injury Santon.

I was about to agree with everything you just said, then I noticed your flag. You're wrong.

But seriously, Miangue is solid but probably Pioli is looking for someone who pushes forward. Would really like to see him getting more chances, but in Italy it's tough for kids to break through don't kid yourselves, Milan are doing it because they're broke. Also if I recall correctly Juve are the oldest on average.

Miangue is not even that bad going forward. Even his crosses is way better than Assladi (JJM mode on).

Of course we're getting rid of our youngest and best LB performer this season. I didn't expect anything different.

Btw saying that he's our best LB isn't a compliment because the other two have been garbage, but still considering his age and experience..
