So, the injury of Correa was a blessing in disguise actually. Now, if Gags get injured somehow, it will be even better.

I have no doubts that Inzaghi deserves one more year in the same way that i have no doubt that us losing the title last season was on him.
At the end guys you need experience to win the league title not everyone is born a natural winner.

Will all the difficulties we have been through and basically 0 mercato Inzaghi is actually doing great by delivering cups, solid CL performance and solid league performance. Spalleti needed all these years before he is actually close to winning his 1st Serie A title and Guintoli ( his DS) unlike ours did a great job on the transfer market finding gems even in a year where they lost all their core. I have a surprisingly great confidence on the CL too , it couldn't come in a better moment for us so lets hope we get a decent shaped Lukaku until then .

I've been saying this, HE IS GREAT FOR US atm. Except for the Correa gamble, not liking Sanchez and not bringing Dybala, "his" buys Džeko, Acerbi and Mhiki kinda delivered. With this weird squad he is doing good enough, so obviously I'm wondering what would happen if he actually had his own Eriksen, Hakimi and "the real" Lukaku. I believe in him, but he is getting fucked by our own president and to an extent, Marotta.

He hardly make any of those decisions and you know it.

Sanchez is probably the only one where he was influential.

Result aside.. Insaghi's team is most offensive (interesting) Inter since 199x.. even with the financial trouble
Others are all defensive minded or relying on certain players..
This might be true.
Inzaghi won the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana in his debut campaign after replacing Antonio Conte and fought to the end with Milan for the Scudetto.
Unlike Conte, Inzaghi has been able to twice qualify for the Champions League Round of 16 and the upcoming clash is with FC Porto.

Inzaghi’s record on the Inter bench is of 54 victories, 13 draws and only 15 defeats, his team scoring 164 goals and conceding 78.
In comparison, Conte oversaw 65 wins, 23 draws and 15 defeats, scoring 214 goals and conceding 102.

I personally think Inzaghi deserves better funding to put his ideas into practice. I can imagine him winning Scudettos with the kind of funding Mancini and Conte have enjoyed. Given the recent transfer campaigns AND key players injury, I think he is doing an acceptable job.

» What I don`t like:
  • playing Gagliardinho ahead of Asllani. G5 has no future in this club
  • lack of consistency in preparing league matches: (fuckups like the one against Empoli) where players did not feel the pressure and were not driven enough. They need to have a 2 goals lead before relaxing like that. This costed us last year`s Scudetto and seems that we`ll have the same result this season
  • rotation: not playing enough certain valuable players, like Gosens. This costs us in the long run (championship)
  • Correa obsession: the fact that he wanted him puts him on a dangerous cycle where he keeps playing hopingt that Correa gains confidence/form/justifies his value. Obviously this will never happen at Inter
  • not developing players/helping them reach top form: we could all witness the Conte + Pintus effect on certain players. How many players levels have been elevated by Inzaghi and his staff? I can only think of DiMarco, all the rest seem to have regressed
  • young players: not much playtime, but we could argue that we have a very limited number of talented young players in the current squad. Just like you, I would rather prefer we allow 10-15 minutes for likes of Carboni instead of Gagliardinho - especially when we are leading, as we are already out of the Scudetto race

It will be interesting to see what Inzaghi is going to do now that Brozovic is back? Returning to previous status quo of Brozovic regista and Hakan mezzala? Sticking with Hakan as a regista and Brozovic in a more advanced role?

Whatever he chooses to go for, at least we won't have to see Mkhi starting every single game.

Last season, Inzaghi tried to rotate the squad and would make his subs early. After the loss to Milan, he was criticized for taking off Perisic and Hakan around the 60-65th minute ( can’t recall exactly. He changed this policy, after what appears to be some internal criticism. See Hakan’s comments regarding his substitution, where h publicly mentioned this.

Also, after internal criticism, and the media, he also changed his policy regarding subbing off players on a yellow. What’s funny is that if he followed through with his way, Skriniar’s would have been subbed and that loss to Empoli would likely not have materialized.

What? Skriniar got his double yellow in the first half. He hasn't been taking players off in first halves apart from Udinese match which was about getting a reaction than because they had yellows (surely picked those guys who had yellows but it wasn't the reason)

I don’t think Inzaghi really had or has a rule that a player on yellow should be subbed off. I think he tries to play it by ear but this was incorrectly interpreted as a blanket policy.

Now I think he thinks twice about it because he probably received criticism for it.

In this way he is the opposite of Conte, who suffers from being too stubborn in his ways. Inzaghi is maybe too open to change.

Inzaghi has said countless times he has taken off players because they got yellow cards.

Acerbi even said recently he had to convince his coach to leave him on the pitch after getting a yellow.

In an interview with Italian television broadcaster DAZN after the match, and as reported by FCInterNews.it, Acerbi admitted that he had to speak to Inzaghi and reassure him that he would remain disciplined, with the coach deciding to leave his defender on for the remainder of the game.

“He’s afraid of being left with 10 men due to those random chances that happen on the pitch. Today I didn’t know if he’d take me off or throw me down, but I told him to stay calm,” the Italy international claimed.

“A defender’s skill is knowing how to play with the yellow card. Attention is the main quality of a defender, with a yellow card you usually play with more care.”

I read this morning that Inter recently held talks with Diego Simeone as a replacement for Inzaghi in the Summer.

I can't see it happening though due to Simeone's wages and the fact that he would in all likelihood not be keen on building a free agent team.

Didn't he also say right after Empoli game that Skriniar's case was exactly why he takes off players after their first yellow?

Nah. I thought so as well but it was just a FIF argument. :D

The only thing he said was he never had a player getting two yellows so fast.

True.. I think we are in the right direction with him as a coach..

To fix our problem.. got to start with the owner's pocket (Zhang is a decent owner, problem is his pocket when COVID hits).. I don't mind he stays if he gets his pocket fix (very unlikely tho) else we need a similar owner with a bigger budget.. coz inter, in fact 70%-80% of top clubs are not making money..

For me Inzaghi's coaching team is on a good path to be like Arsene Wenger.. if he can fix his petty² issues like what you stated.. I think he can be Alex Ferguson if given the time and chances..

Wack me

I really don't think coach could do anything tonight. We have more then enough chances, but simply we don't have players who can finish the action with the goal.

20+ shots. The coach isn't the problem.

he had 8 days to figure out how to beat the 19th team in the league and he failed

also that was some weird defensive trio and even though they weren't problem by themselves, dropping Bastoni who offers something in attack doesn't make sense
