How is the manager not at fault? We are the only team in the world that makes substitutions and the team plays worse after. And no it’s not a one off thing, it’s constant. He can’t read a game to save his life.

Taking off Lukaku and Barella with the way both of them were playing is criminal. Lautaro and Calha were completely off it from the get go, it’s obvious to see to everybody but this moron.

The issue with him is that he pre plans the game in his head and has all the subs already planned before a ball is kicked. It’s the only possible explanation for the constant nonsense we see. If we’re happy with getting out of the CL group and winning a cup every year then keep keeping going with him. If you want to win a league title then get rid because this guy won’t win the French league with PSG. He’ll fail to win the Bundelsiga with Bayern. Heck he wouldn’t win this league if you gave him a 20 point advantage

If we lose against Porto his time here should be over come the summer
I'd like to agree but we can't afford anyone better AND no one will want to come work in these conditions.

I don't understand him, at all. No Dimarco OR Bastoni against a team where we'll have the ball for 95% of the game? Barella off instead of Mkhi? Lukaku off for Dzeko instead of taking a CB off? It's idiot AND cowardly coaching, all at once.

...and YET, I blame mostly the players. They're petulant morons who need a sergeant type to kick their ass, and if you constantly need that level of input to motivate yourself then maybe you're just not that good of a football player. To be honest, Top 4, Supercup, a CL run and a Coppa Italia is going to start looking like a miracle considering the situation he's in.

(Goes without saying that this is primarily Suning's fault, all of my posts carry that sentiment)

He better win the Coppa.

I care more about CL which brings prestige and money to the club. We have a golden chance to reach at least quarterfinals this year. He better deliver. Only way to save the season.

Well of course. But it's gotta be both.

This guy made Pioli and Spalletti scudetto winners.
I don't think this season's Napoli has anything to do with Inzaghi. Last season's Milan could be attributed to our meltdown, but Napoli has made themselves the Scudetto winners this season by themselves.

This. His games are engraved in a stone unless someone gets a yellow.

This team is just is all over the place in terms of mentality and professionalism.

Obviously I don't expect us to win every match but I don't think it's too much to ask that we stick relatively close to the script of "beat the teams we're supposed to beat and compete against teams that'll give us a match."

Instead, we started the season by losing to every single one of our direct rivals in a pathetic display of beta-ness. At one point, our head-to-head record against Lazio, Milan, Roma and Juventus was Loss, Loss, Loss, Loss.

Now we're doing the exact opposite and performing well in the big games while hemorrhaging points against weaker opponents.

We've had 6 games against weak opponents this calendar year so far - Monza, Parma, Verona, Empoli, Cremonese, Samp. Not a single one of these 6 teams is in the top half of the table. 3 of them are in the relegation zone. 1 of them is in fucking Serie B. And yet, in these 6 games we've kept just 2 clean sheets, scored just 7 goals, conceded 5, and won only 3.

Its revealing that these shit games have directly followed wins against rivals. What should be a motivating, morale-boosting win to build upon, instead becomes a routine marker for an upcoming predictable capitulation. The only conclusion that can possibly be drawn from this is that the players themselves are simply just cunts while Limone himself can not motivate them to approach the small games with the necessary effort.

Getting top four, giving us exciting CL games and avoiding embarrassing results in the Coppa would easily give him another season, as it should. He should find ways to either motivate or replace his players though, or he won't survive the next season.

His inability to keep the team sharp is my only real gripe with him. He sets up the games well enough, the real problem is the constant and inevitable drop in focus and composure we experience on a consistent basis. I’m afraid that’s a thing that’s not so easily changed.

What kills me about Inzaghi is he is very close to being a top level manager. However his ability to motivate and inspire his players is virtually non existent.

He is tactically a phenomenal coach. Very rarely do we play a game where we’re vastly outplayed. However holy shit when we aren’t vs a top side and he actually has to fire the squad up he is atrocious.

Conte was an absolute master at man motivation. Players treated a game vs Cagliari like a derby. With Inzaghi you can physically see the lack of fire and frustration vs lower teams. I still have faith in him to win us the Coppa and potentially reach the QF of UCL. Hopefully he does.

If we miss top 4, he has to leave.

We are lucky that our rivals are worse than us. But in an extreme scenario of us missing out on Champions League football for next season, eventually sacking him would mean that we would bring in even a worse coach.

The only positive scenario which I could predict is that we try to remain competitive under Limone and escape out of this mess with a new ownership, and if Limone fails to deliver at expected results with the eventual new ownership that is willing to take Inter back to success, then we bring in a better coach meanwhile we are still a team that plays in CL.

Are you sure we have better squad than the rest ?
Yes. Jube maybe have better, but they are so behind, and this should be fair enough to compensate. Milan have like 3 players, who made their play, Theo, Girou and Leao + sometimes Tonali and Bennacer. Lazio and Roma are worse no doubt about it. And on the top of that, we need to get one of 3 spots to do it. There are no excuses if he fails.

I think we were plenty fired up in the first half last night. And generally we start the games with the right mindset, even against smaller clubs. The problem is the half time break, by that time the opponents have warmed up and the impression factor of facing a big club has disappeared plus they are employing a contingency plan for whatever we are doing. That's when Simone shits the bed, he doesn't adjust well on the fly, and of course like you said, he doesn't motivate the squad at that point at all. And this is not something you can change, you can't fake charisma and character. He is one of the boys instead of someone the players will yearn to impress like with Conte.

I feel like he has a very "fire and forget" approach to his management style. What he does up to the game start is what we'll get, then during the game itself its all up to the players.
