Recency bias I'm sure, but the way we've been playing lately is better than we ever did under conte IMO and I don't mean one game, I mean run of games
That's what having multiple gameplans actually does.

To be honest, I think we should delete the video from the thread. It's disrespectful. Since when was watching someone slip on stairs funny? He could have hurt his back and also took a moment to lean against the wall and gain his bearings.

People today are fucked: have a giggle at someone's expense and post a video for posterity.

Someone falling will always be funny. Don't care. Even he found the funny side

Truly amazed at what he’s doing.

I hope he sees how much better we are when we play with a real second striker.

The dzeko, Toro pairing has been good but there has been way more mobility with Correa and Sanchez slick plays like in the napoli, Roma and this game.

Inzaghi is really doing a great job. The freeflowing football we do is devastating against poorer sides, they can't do fucking anything. If we want to make waves in Europe we need better players to play this freeflowing football better, simple as that. As of now, it doesn't look club's financial situation allows for such investments but Italy should be ours.

Inzaghi took what Conte built and took a step or two forward from that. Conte brought the winning mentality and the rigid playing style. This group knows what it takes to win, they know how to suffer if necessary. But Inzaghi lets them to attack.

We've really improved in attack in terms of ability to keep possession. We don't have those reckless giveaways in attack the same way we had at the start of the season. And if we give away the ball when attacking, we fucking swarm on that player who took the ball, we foul him, we do anything to stop the counter from starting. I fucking love that. That has been IMO our biggest flaw in this short Inzaghi era and I think we've somewhat managed to fix this. Of course we haven't fixed it per se, since for example Real had some counters against us but it's clear we've focused on this one (and Real is a better team than anyone we've faced this season, maybe apart from Napol?).

Only thing what is missing is the tempo, but that's something Inter cannot do anything about as long as the rest of the Serie A plays like Serie A has always played. You cannot really train the tempo football without playing it and it's hard to play it when all the opponents really don't do it. Though I think with better players we could force it but that's for the future, hopefully.

Ive not seen the last few games, so my view might be out of date, but we need to stress the tactical discipline that allows us to take the risks, as well. I know we've conceeded far fewer goals in recent games than the start of the season, but I feel like we're missing the clockwork in Conteball that allowed us to be so defensively well set up. Clearly combining that with Inzaghiball is a bit of a contradiction, but if he can pull that off, that's where a great coach will truly be made - striking the right balance between rigidity and freeflow

I’m sold for life. I’ve never enjoyed watching Inter play football as much as I do now. Give him the Ferguson/Wenger treatment and hold on to him for the next decade.

If we somehow can get out of the financial problems, this team can only get better. I would like to see Inzaghi for many years here, as long as possibile. Because he's stil young and can still improve from he's mistakes. And there are anyway not much alternatives we could get.

Yeah, there is no clockwork Conteball in defending. If there was, we wouldn't be seeing this freeflowing Inzaghiball. It can't be both, at least not with these players but I'd seriously doubt getting both is realistic.

Good balance is possible and IMO we are almost there. We are 11 goals scored 0 conceded in the past 4 Serie A games. Napoli match was one where we weren't too good at defending against a good team, so there is still work to do.

Yeah, I think we can improve a bit more towards the Conteball clock work, but managing transitions from attack to defense (IMHO, maybe wrong) is one of the biggest parts of being a top tier coach - like how Guardiola does/did a really good execution at City, for example.

There's so much attacking potential at Inter (obviously), if we can instil a more confident/rigid defensive system and then do good transition management it could really be lethal

Contenoball with Inzaghiball would be amazing - it might just be that, for example, we expect higher stamina from Skriniar/Bastoni and use them more fluidly, but they have to get their asses back ASAP when we lose the ball (for example).

Dunno.

He managed making the newly signed players fit in his tactics, though our best players from last year were/are kinda floundering (Lautaro, Bastoni, Barella, De Vrij). It's a matter of time they get used to Inzaghiball, I noticed they have improved lately and I hope they fully master the tactics before Liverpool match.
