Too bad the guy lost his courage. I know we are conceding a lot of goals but we should behave on the pitch like a big team wanting always to dominate.

Will he survive after this next 4 really tough away matches in the league? i don´t think so cause there are also 4 Champions league matches which will probably not be good for us in the way of results and also the energy and confidence of the players, and also Broz is still out, Lukaku also etc.

At least club have 2-3 months now to think about his successor.

No. I don't support other clubs against Inter just to see the manager I don't like fail. That's what Conter haters did in the past.
That's not true, I'm not going crazy on Conte either, but how can you wish your club to fail when it wins, we were winning back then.

No we are losing, this is the difference and if one more loss is needed to sack him let it be.

Only I'm afraid that won't be enough.

I didn't check the source and don't know if this is correct, but if it is....................


Inter took all the necessary steps for Dybala and received assurances about his physical condition. In the club, however, not all members were in favor, on several occasions, at least twice.
When the possibility of bringing Lukaku to Milano actually opened up, the coaching staff had no doubts and put the return of the Belgian before the arrival of the Argentinean .
On July 5th , Marotta made it clear that Inter were still on Dybala: not only did the CEO want it, but so did Zhang. A sale was needed: Correa was marked as one. However, the brake came from Inzaghi, who strongly defended the purchase of Tucu.

If this is true fucker needs to resign immediately. What an idiot if this is true🤢

Inter President Steven Zhang was ready to give his approval to sign Paulo Dybala on a free transfer in the summer, but coach Simone Inzaghi did not want to give up on Joaquin Correa.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the President’s green light to sign the Argentine was contingent on a forward already in the league leaving, and Inzaghi made clear that he wanted to keep Correa.
Inter prioritized signing Romelu Lukaku above all other moves once it became clear that the Belgian would be an attainable goal.
In this respect, all of Zhang, Inzaghi, and the club directors were of one mind that bringing back the 29-year-old would be prioritized over all other moves, including Dybala.
However, Dybala remained very much within the Nerazzurri’s grasp until at least into early July, and Zhang was keen to get a deal done for the Argentine.
The issue was always making space in the squad for the former Juventus forward, with Correa the likeliest player to be sold to make way.
However, Inzaghi still trusts that the 28-year-old can come good following his move from Lazio last summer.
Accordingly, the coach strongly backed keeping Correa, even if it meant that the Nerazzurri were unable to sign Dybala.

If you were to tell me losing to Sassuolo gets him fired sign me up. The issue is I don’t think it will. He is safe til at least the World Cup break. I hope by then he’s at least able to get us back to looking like a top four side. If he is able to do that then I’m fine keeping him til seasons end.

With that being said I think he’s losing the players. The amount of times we have been beaten because we concede two goals every three shots on target is nauseating. A part of that is Handanovic being a bad GK(That’s what he is, there’s no other way around it) but a lot of it is a poorly structured defense allowing players into dangerous positions. Inzaghi teams have always been poor defensively.

For him to say in his press conference that we played how he wants he wasn’t lying. We created a boatload of chances, scored one, and broke down badly defensively two times, both resulting in goals. My dream is new ownership will get a Pochettino or something if the sort but reality is Inzaghi is the best we’re getting unless ownership changes are made.

As much as it makes sense for Inzaghi to want Correa over Dybala, it's not possible to be real.

We said to Conte (a coach who won the scudetto, 1 month before) say bye bye to Hakimi and Lukaku without blinking an eye, and he had zero power to do something about it... We can literally pay someone to fuck Inzaghis wife, and him and his stupid hair wont do shit about it.

I've been trying to think through why this team is so poor defensively. These are my working theories.
  1. Dimarco is a regular starter. This guy is an outright terrible defender, regardless of whether he's playing CB or LWB. At LWB he doesn't have the speed, stamina, or defensive ability to mark his man and he routinely gets beaten 1 v 1. As a LCB he gets outmuscled by stronger players (all players) and is often caught out of position. However, we've been forced to play Dimarco because he's one of the few players offering anything in attack. This puts a greater burden on both Bastoni and de Vrij, and neither of them have been able to cope with it. It's a lot easier to hide poor individual defenders in the midfield (Calhanoglu) than it is on the wings.
  2. The loss of Perisic. Perisic was an elite defensive wingback. He made multiple goal line clearances, could put strong wingers in his pocket, and could run relentlessly for 90 minutes. We've lost him, which might be the best explanation for why Bastoni can't seem to do anything right.
  3. The high line. Our team is slow, and quite poor at controlling the ball. We haven't executed a successful counterattacking goal in what feels like six months. So unlike under Conte, we don't have the ability to sit back and quickly catch teams out using Hakimi, Lukaku, and Barella. We are pushing further up the pitch and routinely getting burned by teams beating our slow back line. The Udinese game is the obvious example of this, but Lazio and Lecce also created several opportunities this way.
  4. Morale? We tried our best to force both Bastoni and Skriniar out the door this summer. Skriniar and de Vrij are both playing on expiring contracts. I can't explain the multiple concentration lapses this team has had on set pieces, which makes me think maybe they're just checked out after a brutal summer.
I'm open to any other theories.

Just to add on point number 2, Perisic would try to beat his man, we don't have any of that here.

We would’ve had that if our management didn’t drag out Sanchez release til the end of summer just to give him what he wanted anyway. Or if Inzaghi didn’t want to keep a career mediocre player like Correa.

Three points vs a team he should be beating is such a dumb decisive game to decide a coach being let go or not. Roma was the game to decide that and he failed spectacularly again. Idk who our next coach will be but my god I hope it’s a boring, defensive minded coach. Because this team needs structure so badly.

Problem is that our attack also suck cause we miss midfielders or SS who can provide assists for our strikers. Our midfielders are so sluggish in decision making that every solid defence can stop our attack with ease. That problem would be solved if we still have fast flanks who know to assist and score. We had that last season in Perisic. Bottom line if we solve defence problem we'll still have problems upfront. We miss Eriksen and Dybala for that matter. This team is just not good enough for big things. And for that you need either great scouts that can find you Kvaradona like Napoli did for cheap, or rich owner that will spend on top players. Suning and Marotta did good job till fucking covid came in..We had money and we could bring good to great players like Hakimi, Eriksen, Lukaku, Barella.. Now we are poor, our scouts are nonexistential,head coach is mediocre and this is the result you get.

Don't have one.

Spot on with everything, although I would just add for the fourth one, and I mentioned this before, there shouldn't be any excuses for bastoni and skriniar being this bad. If they are truly interistas like everyone think they are, those so-called obstacles should have been forgotten as soon as season started. That's just mine opinion, maybe it's too pragmatical, but if you really love the club then you should be able to differentiate club management wanting to sell because we are in debt and actually respecting the fans and giving your best for inter shirt when you actually end up staying. Having said all of this, I highly doubt that's the reason they play bad, the whole team for some reason regressed, and those two just followed imo.

Also, I would add a fifth reason why we are poor defensively, and it's really simple, complete lack of defensive organization and defensive tactics from inzaghi. You can play a high line, play on counterattacks etc... but you have to have some sort of organization back there, where you can see defensive players are looking where they are, where their defensive teammates are, hand gesturing to hold the line and gesturing this player is mine etc.. all those small things we saw with conte. I didn't see any of those things with inzaghi not only this year but even last year.

Our defensive stability last year if you could call it that, cos we had big problems even back then, was solely a product imo of high morale of players after winning a title and wanting to prove they can win it without conte, perisic contribution and inzaghi tactics being somewhat new and not read like a bad book like this year. Now that most of that is gone, and we actually have to rely on a real defensive system and tactics, we are in deep shit, cos there is nothing even remotely close to a defensive setup and system with inzaghi, at least not on any kind of serious level.

Someone has to explain why Inzaghi is at fault for the following:

- versus Udinese, Skriniar’s own goal and De Vrij conceding an unnecessary corner, which directly lead to Udinese´s winner:

- misplaced passes in midfield, which lead to team conceding equalizers against Roma and Ac Milan;

- Handanovic’s howler v Roma and not coming out of his line for Anderson’s goal in Lazio’s game. Also need to blame Bastoni and Dimarco for that one.

If you take away these individual errors, where would the team be in the table?

Inzaghi is at fault for his selection absolutely (waiting till Roma to start Asllani, overplaying Dzeko) and for not sticking with Onana as a starter but the players are making amateur mistakes.

That GdS report is absolute bullshit :lol:

I'm not exactly hot on Inzaghi right now but to think he has the kind of power to veto a move for Dybala, when even Conte couldn't do that for Eriksen, is batshit.

Inter's points after the first 8 Serie A matches of the season since 2012:

View attachment 7541
strange to imagine that conte had only 3 points more.. this are not much if you think about it. The problems are diffrent probably, but i don't see it impossible to get out of this situation, maybe difficult, not impossible.
