I love like how always someone will try to make this a larger-than-life type of problem.

"Something is wrong inside the club"
"Zhang minus X plus Y"
"Locker room is unstable at this moment"
"The problems started after the mercato news came for..."
"This formation requires this and that, but more of that and we miss this and especially THAT"


Inzaghi needs to leave. That's the truth. Maybe he needs another club to reach that level of knowledge (and with that comes confidence) that will make him look outside his bubble. As is, he sucks.

He is a nagatomo bitch type. 4 meh games, followed by 10 loser games, followed by a win, followed by another 4 meh games that now look like a gold after the terror we've witnessed.

Loop this.
There are always reasons behind why coach fails.

There's been speculation over here about those reasons. I don't get this "larger-than-life" nagging.

It's as if you claim there is nothing behind this downturn, but just that Inzaghi needs to leave. That he just sucks or something. He also collected 84 points last season so wouldn't say it's only that he sucks (quite oxymoron coach sucks but he's been able to collect 84 points in a season and win 2 finals).

He's 46, this is his second club, has got much to learn. Dude is not bad but we're never winning anything with him for now, doesn't matter what player you give him.
My question had nothing to do with this. I know he's still a young coach and can improve and I don't want him sacked (yet). But he needs to learn from his mistakes and not just hold himself responsible without correcting himself.

The way this team is playing is not even Inzaghiball. Last season we were watching a different brand of football, specially in the first part of season. But everything looks terrible this season and yesterday match was the worst of them all; most of all the way Inzaghi himself managed the match. I believe it was his worst match as the Inter coach so far and that's alarming.

There are also reasons behind coach wins. I'm more and more convinced that behind his success last season was the good job done by the Conte's team. Inzaghi just gave some freedom to the players, and that had some short term positive effect. Sadly there are only ruins left this season. We cannot move the ball under pressure, cannot make a fast counter attack, and even our possession based attacks become somehow dull. Inzaghi reminds me of EDF, who inherited a fine team from Sabatini-Spalletti and was even able to drive Roma till semi final of CL. Next season they were total shit though.
I'm afraid that Inter's situation is pretty similar. We can confine the damage if Inzaghi gets fired immediately.

Don't have one.

Yep, that's my feeling as well, he rode the wave of conte and his staff last season and probably most importantly he rode the wave of the mentality conte staff instilled in players. Now, as the time passes and he needs to put his own ideas and energy on the table, he is lost. That's the only way you can explain this drastic level of drop in quality this season, compared to last. If last year we played nice football and won two trophies solely on his merits and methods, then you surely wouldn't see this level of shithousery in this season.

And that's not to say he is a bad coach like de boer, strama etc., he is just way over his depth for the level he needs to be when it comes to a club like inter. His absolute top is the team like lazio imo.

Yeah I agree, I think this is a pretty good analysis actually!

But why everything is so dull is the question to be answered. Players not putting the needed effort is definitely one thing which needs to be fixed, because of course everything is dull if players don't try like professionals. But why they don't put the effort and try to their best ability, that is the question. And that's where a coach needs to step in and should have step in. And there's the thing with possible reasons, why players aren't trying, what are the reasons for that.

Remains to be seen can this be figured out with Inzaghi or not.

October needs to be very good result-wise even if we played like shit because results bring calmness and it's easier for everyone to work.

I was thinking about that. One of the reasons is our WBs are nowhere to be seen in counter attack. I remember during Conte's stint here, the wingbacks gave us depth in almost every attack, and the player with the ball always had an option to pass wide. Last season we also used this weapon, mainly with Dumbfries stalking on the last defender. This season is completely different - we just don't have wide options, especially on counter attack.
The other thing is our inability to survive high press. We cannot make more than 3 passes before to lose the ball. Bad passing, poor positioning and insufficient off ball movement looks like reasons for me, but I have no idea about the root of the problem.

Fabrizio Biasin:

Inter’s were out of the match after Barella’s free-kick and this can’t happen,” he said. “It’s the same Barella and the same team as last season, but they lack Perisic, and they don’t fight like they used to.”

“And then I have to put the blame for a lot of what went on the coach,” he continued, “when you make two thirtieth-minute substitutions, take off Dzeko who was their best player and Acerbi who was the best defender for de Vrij who was a disaster, it shows a lack of understanding of the game.”

“Three defeats are a lot, that’s how many matches a team with Scudetto ambitions should lose in an entire season,” Biasin suggested.

“I thought maybe they weren’t running as much anymore,” he continued, “but actually Inter have been running as many kilometers as last season, but what’s it been good for?”

“I think there’s a locker room problem to be solved even if it has to be done the hard way,” Biasin said, “the coach had a disastrous match, but the players now play for themselves individually, which can’t happen.”

“Mkhitaryan has huge experience,” he noted, “if he makes a mistake and gets a yellow card, you can’t sacrifice him after half an hour, you can lose touch with him that way.”

I think Inzaghi recognizes the shortcoming of the squad but lacks the assertiveness to do what needs to be done.

This is also due to criticism he receives when he tries to tinker and be reactive. It was against Lazio where he received criticism for starting Gagliardini.

So against Udinese, he knew that he needed to field a different lineup than the one he played in CL but instead hesitated.

So after 30 min and Udinese ´s equalizer he made the changes.

He is second quessing himself. But at least he is taking ownership of his mistakes.

Biasin is on spot, but we already know that. I'm sure that some of the team's leaders are not agree with Inzaghi's methods, and there is some split in the locker room. I hope Marotta will use the break to find a replacement, because I don't see how Inzaghi will turn the tables.

We are 5 points from the top, not 15. For fuck sake. :D

You stick to the table and you refuse to see everything else around it. Out of the 4 wins two came in the 90th minute. Inter have one of the worst defences of the league. Only Verona, Sampdoria, Monza and Cremonese have conceded more. And most importantly there are signs Inzaghi has lost the dressing room and most of the players look in terrible form.

There are reasons for concern.

Yeah, reasons for concern for sure.

I wouldn't do anything before the World Cup break. It's not like the market is full of experienced coaches ready to take the reins and lead Inter to glory.

Can he turn around? I fucking hope so but my doubt is greater. He had his warning after Bayern match, problems are still there. Another thing is that he has never been under pressure like this before, not at Lazio, very hard for him.

Not to mention 3 of our 4 wins have come against relegation teams, 4 out of 5 if you count Plzen.

So basically we've only managed to win the absolute, most easy games of the season, and even then we've looked dismal. Anyone who is above relegation tier has beaten us comfortably - with the exception of Torino who still outplayed us.
