Inzaghi needs to really find solutions to this defending. You can't keep conceding 3 goals per game like this.

I remember having these exact same kind of comments back then two years ago when we had the gung-ho football with Conte at the start of the Scudetto season. Let's see can Inzaghi find something. IMO his job should depend on it.
Problem is that we cant play on counter when we have snails upfront. It can work against Cremonese but against stronger teams no way.

Don’t think we can switch to 4-4-2, too many midfielders.

Too many occasions we couldn’t deliver ball from backline to Brozo or opponents press hard on him. Today there’s no switching when Brozo got lost and left huge gap in front CBs.

Would love to see 4-3-1-2 or even 4-3-2-1, we cannot build up from back line now. We don’t have pace, stamina is also slow. Playing rigorously is most important thing now like other said, players lose focus easily.

Formation won't make much difference. We already build from the back in a way which is not tied to our formation at all. Brozovic is sometimes very low, side CBs are sometimes all the way wide on the flanks.

I refuse to blame him.He is what he is..A Lazio level coach good for few Coppa Italias down the road. Only person to be blamed are the Zhangs.. When we won Scudetto, it was perfect time to build a legacy, win a string of Scudetto and form a legacy,instead what he does, sells his best players and his best asset in Conte.. What Hurts me more is that it was the perfect time to build a legacy of some sort,Milan was mediocre and Juve are having massive problems of their own. Instead he just passed on the baton..

I don't know what to think about him, he did the exact opposite he did playing against Lazio, from playing strange weird tactics to counter Lazio to just be as boring as possible till 3-1.

Saying so, I still think the score didn't truly reflect the coaches' difference, I would say the goals we conceded are from induvial errors, and player brilliancy.
first goal - kinda obvious
second - it wasn't a spectacular play, and our players just decide to move away from Giroud, like wtf??? It also wasn't some attack play that got them to that position, it was a throw in, and everyone was so loose
third - it was a nice long pass, and nice lay down by Giroud, but at the end it was Leao that beated Bastoni and De Virj

Our goals are really from nice attack play.

Not saying Simone is blameless here, the switch up was slow, and also the game prep was not exactly right, like Milan studied us hard on the passing route and obvious the physical preparation is still not good enough etc, also at the end of the day the coach is still responsible for players' mentality and morale, but it goes deeper here, like how Sunning is trying to downsize the team etc.

Milan kinda played the easy way, they didn't do any really build up, they mostly just did pressing and counter on transition, and when they had the ball their attack plan was just crossing the ball mostly or just sprint with it; it is always harder to play the possession side, build from the back etc.

I feel like this one is more on the players that couldn't perform or execute what was planned (leaking defence etc. even you can argue it is Inzaghi's job to prep them well for it), I guess a lesson for Sunning, fucking our players' mind, would affect their performances.

Finally, how much our squad cost in general, we are supposed to still dominate the league, I hope Inzaghi figured out the plan A fast, so far we still haven't a clear frame work.

P.S. Thank you FIF so I can type my long ass thoughts. LOL

There's no way this team survives Bayern without conceding 3 goals, unless the plan is to park the bus for 90 minutes. We've played two of the better attacks in Serie A and allowed six goals. The minute we spring forward Bayern will overwhelm us with their pace and technical ability. Who is capable of man-marking Davies? Does anyone really think de Vrij can track Mane?

Watch Inzaghi lose dressing room soon after lose streak. I wonder why Marotta not angry when Gosens, Onana and Asllani doesnt get minutes.

Darmian or Dimarco as LWB sure worrying. Handanovic already old, we should move on sooner. Asllani sure better than Gags, but he never start.

The encouraging thing is he acknowledged there's a problem with defense and he needs to work on it. Let's see if he makes any adjustments.

It's easy to blame Inzaghi. Of course he made mistakes, but our owner and management keep trying to dismantle the team. Most coaches won't survive our current situation.

Let's not forget Pioli. FIF also made fun of him, called him "loser coach", and now dude won Scudetto with Bbilan's shitty squad and beat us twice this year.

Asllani is better than hakan also, but when we have coach that too scared to change things that what we get, players that play like shit keep getting never ending credit as starters, at this point all my trust for inzaghi is totally gone, this guy is a clown..

Our Pre season are so bad, this is an alarm for us, our management want fix it with some quality Players, but Zhang decided to stop it. This loss cause our owner not coach, if coach have more quality and Zhang give green light such as buy Akanji and renew Perisic. We don't have awful results. Inzaghi cant be blamed so much because the main problem is our owner.

Marotta is already have vision what happen this season, and decided to move for Bremer, Dybala, and Akanji. In the end always green light from Zhang is missing. Fuck Suning, as long they still own Inter, we cant move forward.

We can blame Inzaghi all we want but truth is, when there's so much instability caused by the management with your best players being put on sale, then that will automatically affect the the psychology of your whole squad.

This same squad dominated everyone else in the league last season and played on par with Liverpool. Losing Perisic was a bummer but the lack of vision destroyed the whole team's morale.

I don't think that the defense is the real problem. It's more like inability to string two passes together, when the team is under pressure. We lose the ball in transition defense - midfield, which causes dangerous attacks for the opposition.

Yeah Skriniar also acted differently, he used to cheering teammates or fist bumping with Handa whenever Handa made a great save. Yesterday he looked unmotivated and annoyed.

Defence looks demoralized, Dumfies is always late to go back, so Skriniar in often alone on the right.
Brozo has 3 yellows in 5 games.
Barella only fights with refs.
Amateur level discipline.

These are all his fault. If you look globally it is not his fault because he is mediacore, he is doing his max, he was hired and he is doing his best, the problem is Stivie.

I think more and more teams have us figured out.We look nervous because for 3 years our core whilst building up attacks - Handa,Skriniar,de Vrij,Bastoni,Brozovic and Barella has remained the same and so that build up and that transition from defense to attack is something that more and more teams prepare for.Its not like Limone has some revolutionary new manner of playing that is different from Conte's.And since the opposition is better prepared we are now seeing our players being forced into mistakes and it does not help that some of them like de Vrij are markedly slower.

It may indeed be time for us to consider ditching the 3-5-2 system and going with a new coach in the summer but i am afraid we do not have the money to go for a new project.Giving Limone some better wingbacks can be helpful but with no money we cannot really do that.Marcelo even as a free agent should have been signed but it seems we didn't even have money to pay Acerbi so forget matching Marcelo's wages but i am sure he would have been perfect to attack down the left wing and would have easily cut it in Serie A unless he has no motivation at all.

I feel bad for the guy because he is being given no money to spend and play a system that is now 3 years in play and its only natural our opponents know us thoroughly.It has to be said Correa and Gosens seem like 50m down the drain but whilst Gosens is on Marotta surely Correa is on Limone.He should have known Correa was not worth spending 30m on when money is so hard to come by at Inter.

Honesty not to sure he s to much to blame for the defense yesterday... Those mistakes were not tactical mistakes but individual fuck ups and lack of concentration how the fuck is half our defense ball watching on the 2:1 how the fuck does leao get rid of 2 defenders with a simple litlle move, yes he s good but that cannot happen. Also how the fuck did we lose every header in the first 60mins? Not sure these are things Inzaghi is to blame for.

What he is to blame for is not reacting when we stopped playing after we went ahead, also no reaction when we were struggling to get the ball out of our own half for the rest of the half.... You cannot play the same tactics when you have lautaro/correa upfront as if you had one of dezeko lukaku there. The amount of time we lunched a high/long ball to our strikers who should protect the ball and flick it off and we failed was astonishing. Yet no correction. Also would have hoped us to come out of halftime with more urgency and maybe already a change but no we went out the same way we ended the half.

And for once, the subs actually worked!

But overall we didn't click higher on the concentration bar.
