This league has never been easier to win in the two years he have been here, he bottled it last year but got close. This season is just an embarrassment.

Next three games we have cremonese, Atalanta and Milan. He should have to win all three to keep his job.

Very well said in the first point.

But however, I wouldn't sack him in the mid-season even if he fails to deliver in these matches because things look damn broken and a change of coach in this situation would have been suicidal. Yes, he's done an awful job in the league, but unless we fix the greater issues like head management situation, and what the club is aiming in the future then it makes no sense sacking him at this point.

Let's end this season. We will get into the top4 despite everything. But then, we will need a huge refresh in the summer transfer market if we wanna remain competitive. BUT again, nothing good will happen unless we sort it out with the head management and their objective.

Don't have one.
"This is why I substitute players with yellow card"

Actual quote from tonight's press conference from the moron himself commenting on skriniar red card. And I have to call him that, coz even mentioning that stupid rule of his and trying to justify it tonight out of all nights makes my blood boil...

The biggest issue I have is the approach to the game. We looked so slow and tedious and Empoli were the better team even before the red card. We also played a very slow and tedious match against Verona, who are one of the worst teams in the league.

It feels like he is trying to 'conserve' energy, but why is he constantly playing the same players? Since the Sassuolo match, I believe we've played the same midfield 3 in every game, with the exception of Gagliardini starting against Verona due to Barella's injury.

Gosens has started one match in the league (matchday 1)
Asllani is supposed to be Brozo's backup, but has started 2 matches despite Brozo's last start being against Udinese (matchday 7). That means Asllani has started 2 out of 12 matches.
Mkhitaryan has started all 10 of the last league games, in addition to even starting the Coppa game against Parma and the Supercoppa. He's looked out of energy for quite a while, yet is still starting every game.
I have no idea what's going on with Dumfries.
Bellanova looked horrible, although I don't think Inzaghi's management of him has really been all that great. He has 0 starts in the league and couldn't even start the Coppa Italia game against Parma. He looked way too nervous today.

It feel like Inzaghi is going to run Barella, Calhanoglu, and Mkhitaryan into the ground at this point.

This is another reason why he is better at Cup games, like energy management is less of a problem.
His man management isn't bad though.
I am not sure if I agree it is the approach we had that was the exact problem, cause the players looked tired and had been missing simple passes, since the basics weren't even well carried out, it is rather hard to see if there is an obvious tactical error.

The set up I think we can blame on him is Asllani is very suitable for this game, and he didn't start, especially if Inzaghi was intending to have more control and slow build up. I am actually super impressed by Asllani that even we were 1 down and played with 3 forwards, he was able to link and retain possession, and it wasn't like Empoli entirely gave up pressing.

However I am curious why people are pinning on Inzaghi when the red card was clearly one of the most important elements that lost us the game.
Like I know we weren't playing well before the red card, but it was like one of those win by a small margin games, not like we were losing like crazy already.

For me, it's a few things:

- culmination of the entire season. We've lost so many games that we can't afford to lost to a team like Empoli at home.
- continuation of the game against Verona. I thought we were terrible against Verona. Scored an early goal and tried to 'manage' the game for the other 87 minutes. Similarly, we started this game as if we wanted to manage it, thinking we'll get the goal at some point over the 90 minutes.
- Rotation. I think Inzaghi is really poor at rotating. There are some disappointing players, but I think he also needs to take the blame. How does Gosens have only one start in the league? Going back to the game at Camp Nou - Gosens came on and scored a huge goal for us. It was a good time to give him some continuation especially with the next game being at home against Salernitana. In fact, our next 4 games after Camp Nou, included 3 home games against Salernitana/Sampdoria/Viktoria Plzen. Gosens didn't start a single one of those games, and that's with Dimarco almost costing us one of those 4 games, which was the away game against Fiorentina with his penalty and (potential) red card. Same goes with Asllani. He started two games against Roma and Sassuolo. He did show some weaknesses defensively, but he also showed a decent passing range and ability imo. He hasn't started a single Serie A game since then, despite the fact we've had home games against Salernitana, Sampdoria, Bologna, Verona, and Empoli during that time. Those 5 teams area all in the bottom 10 in the league and all of a sudden Asllani can't start even one of them. He did get booked in both of his starts and knowing Inzaghi, that might be the reason.

Cannot blame Inzaghi so much, the only Inzaghi weakness is his sub, sometimes weird when we already win, then we lost the match.

The reaseon is our squad is not big anymore like Conte season, so many player not available, Lukaku and Brozovic injured so much this season.

Many player still raw, like Bellanova or Asslani . In the end we really burden old guy like Dzeko and Mkhi.

I'm grateful for three cups, but I really doubt that Inzaghi is the right man for current Inter. If we had money enough, to provide him solid players, he would be able to win even the scudetto, I guess. But right now, he cannot develop even a single young player like Asllani, who looks ready to step up. He relies only on veterans like Mkhiky, Darmian etc. His obsession with Correa is also cancerous. Correa deserves to be the first one to leave, but most probably we'll keep him, because he is licking Inzaghi's balls.
I'm surprised how Pioli, Allegri, even Mourinho have the courage to put in some young boys if their teams do not have enough finances or if the things don't go well, but our mister is over relying on the same people again and again, till the point when everyone turns to a shit.

Pioli, Allegri and Mourinho still get more money than us, they don't have financial problem. In simple way, our youth player will become plusvalenza every transfer window to fuel our team.

But this is the only way to survive. Otherwise, we gonna sell Barella and Lautaro and replace them with Bonaventura and Caputo. This path leads nowhere. We have to sell, but to invest smart not in the likes of Correas. The only player developed under Inzaghi is Dimarco, and that happened because we didn't have money for another player. Gosens looks like amateur player under him, and all three from the defense significantly lowered their quality. I have my doubt that we'll make it in top 4 this year, but if we continue this way and with this coach, I'm pretty sure that next season we gonna finish 5-8 place.

His Inter is totally disjointed when any of the starting midfielders are subbed and when Džeko doesn't play. Time to go back to the drawing board.

I agree with everything but there is no one better available right now within our budget. Sticking with Inzaghi is the right move, for now. I'd love to see Simeone here but I would love a lot of other things too.

Inzaghi is not the right man for Inter as he does not know how to win ugly. And winning ugly always wins you the Scudetto, history proves that.

Like in a marathon, "just-enough" wins would distribute your gas for the rest of the whole long season. You don't need to crush Milan 3-0 and get outrun by Empoli the day after. You need two 1-2/0 wins (which is so-called "pussy football" by fifers). You must know how to control the tempo of the match, circulate the ball to force the opponent to run for you, before kill him with a knife. Which was and is never in Inzaghi's notebook.

His football and Suning cannot co-exist. Even Pep needs a sick squad depth to play Pep's football. But our owner cannot buy a popcorn without trading his half-full Cola. At least one of them needs to leave otherwise Inter will turn into another Lazio or Atalanta i.e. collecting a few cup matches here and there but suck in the long run and top4 is NOT a guarantee, but considered an "achievement".

Once we miss out CL, you know what's coming... yeah right, "banter era" with an Europa League quality squad.

At this point, 4th + Coppa Italia + CL QFs is kinda required. If you’re gonna be a cup manager, then at least do it right.

Give him an ultimatum. Win Cremonese, at least draw Milan and then continue to win the Sampdoria away and Udine at home before the Porto game. Not unreasonable at all. We'll retain top4 before the CL game and who knows maybe pick up some good playing form eventually that will generate better results till the end.

There was talk he was under pressure to win Bologna and Atalanta and he did and plus he beat Napoli after New Year. As soon as the pressure was off he sucks and Inter play like shit.

I'm still of the opinion that we should keep him by the way. Not because I love what's going on here, but because there are literally no better (realistic) options.

Although if I see Correa or Gagliardini on that field again I might change my mind. With Barella suspended, it's very, very obvious who should play against Cremonese. Let's see.

I’ve also had enough of the 3 cbs bullshit. With Conte, fine, he’s a winner. Inzaghi is lost
