I don't get his rotations sometimes.

What was the point of rotating Pavard for this game? I know Darmian has been good for us, but if we pay big money for Pavard, he should be a starter in the same way Barella is considered a starter, meaning he should play the majority of games, and not getting rotated after two starts, especially considering Darmian already played 90 minutes 3 days ago.

Fratessi has only 1 start in 7 games despite being our big signing (alongside Pavard). I know Fratessi wasn't great when he came on, but he was coming into a game where we looked so disjointed. Give him a start against a team where we can use his characteristics and atleticism. Instead, it looks like his first two starts may be against teams that defend in a low block where his skill set may not be as useful.

I would have expected a bit more courageous subs. 3 attackers instead of keeping the exact same formation. Augusto to LCB and so on.

But mostly he needs to keep telling the team they need to pay attention in every match. It wasn't like we didn't do anything in this match, we created a lot of threat. It just didn't got produced to a true goal scoring chances but that's mostly on players.

I'm fine with Inzaghi rotating. In fact I'd even go as far as saying we have not rotated enough. But he needs to stop relying on subbing the defenders to produce magic. The only occasion it'll work is when he creates a Carlos-Dimarco axis. Subbing in De Vrij never changes the game.

I’m sure Inzaghi tells them that. The issue is he’s not getting through. The big games where the team doesn’t need motivation we are almost flawless. The games like today just seem to keep happening under his management.

Starting to think Inzaghi might never win a title. He seems to be a cup coach.

He has no demonstrated ability to compete in multiple competitions at the same time. The minute we have two competitions (Sociedad), our quality of play fell off a cliff.

Maybe the bench isn't as good as we thought.


Or the starters are overperforming for once in our lives, because we have a proper system in place?

I really don't think it is about motivation today, there are at least 4 players that you can see they are tired Dimarco, Mihki, Darmian, Lautaro. (Maybe Hakan too?)

Mind you we had to defend with 10 men for a bit too last game.
Our usual system should work amazing against Sassuolo, and I understand why the hold back for Pavard like they are better at capitalize on that space indirectly, in short, it should be like a game against Forentina, hence the same line up and game plan, trouble is you have at least 4-5 players that are too tired to carry it out.

I am not saying we can start 4-5 different players, given our bench and opponent's style, but I would expect a much better game if Pavard and Frattessi started instead (might drain other players less too with fewer tired ones), and maybe a 60 mins sub for DiMarco and Lautaro if we are still leading at that point.

I still think our bench is good, but how many are injured already? All are impact subs too.

There are things Inzaghi can improve, but I won't pin too much on him for this one, cause if he did the rotation against la Real again today, y'all be wanting his head too..

It is a long season, once the rotation players settle and Inzaghi is more assure of them, we should be like a machine.

Last season our best form came when Inzaghi rotated a lot. He pretty much rotated both forwards every second game, and typically made 5-6 changes almost game to game.

I actually feel he should have changed more this game. We played 9 of the same players that we played against Empoli and some of them looked jaded even in the Empoli match.

I think Augusto should have started this one. Dimarco is terrible against Berardi and was really poor against Empoli, with the exception of his goal.

I also feel Inzaghi is overplaying our midfield again like last season. Our backup midfielders (Frattesi, Asllani, Klaassen) have started a total of 1 Serie A match between them. Asllani started the CL match but that's only due to injury. I'm hoping Inzaghi doesn't end up overplaying Mkhi and Hakan. I mention those two because he's actually been rotating Barella more, whether by taking him off by the 60th minute or resting him against Empoli.

Maybe the bench isn't as good as we thought.

Wait, there's people who thought our bench is good???

We have Frattesi and a few handymen at the back (Darmian, Carlos Augusto + De Vrij/Acerbi)

Anything else is below standards...

The moment either forward isn't playing, we're screwed.
The moment Hakan is out physically or mentally, we're screwed.
The moment Dimarco and/or Barella are out, we're screwed.

I don't get him, first we needed subs around 55 min, you could see a drop in performance, then you are down and need a goal, and you take Thuram out, who was our superior forward, then take out Bastoni who was the only one to move forward with the ball, then I don't get why not sub Darmian with Pavard, I am not trying to be genaral after battle but damn,
Pavard for Darmian, Fratessi for Barella and Sanchez for Calha should be first set of subs

Sensi, Mkhitaryan, Calhanoglu, Asllani, Klassen aren't creative enough?

Sensi doesn't exist, he's a mythical monster that people rumour seeing on the pitch.

Calhanoglu and Asllani are both playing as DM... not sure how impactful and creative a DM can be in a game.

Klaassen I don't know.

Miki is the only guy that has actually played as an AM and was "world-class" for a season in that position. Yet the dude doesn't have the legs for it anymore - hence why he's started playing deeper. Or should I say, he was instructed so.

You gotta love fif from being one of the best teams in europe to being a shit side without depth within 2 games....

While we were not great yesterday if we replay that game we win it 9 out of 10 times...
We created a lot where we were a inch short of scoring which i put down to luck...

Even without the bench our team should be able to beat a team like Sassuolo every day of the week. There's a reason why they are getting paid millions, there's a reason why Inzaghi is paid 5.5M a year. Players got tired, the bench is this the bench is that, fuck those excuses. Just look at the h2h record for the past decade. Only during Conte's helm have we not lost against them.

To be fair management tried and some guys dad ruined it.
Lets be honest, Samardzic would be getting less playing time than Asllani... Inzaghi wants the players to play in a certain way, thats why Vidal said they are all like robots, which is true.
