It looks to be a training top so it's natural it's going to be more tight fitting

Transfermarkt provides a way to check all foreign players by country:
https://www.transfermarkt.com/inter-mailand/gastarbeiter/verein/46

There was one polish player in Inter, Dawid Smug in Inter's Primavera few years ago.

Exactly, I used data from transfermarkt.

But anyway I can't see Poland on the list. For example Bulgaria and Czechia are on the list even with those 1 Primavera player, or Finland with 1 player without any minute played for Inter.

Webcam porn website make £20million offer to become Inter Milan sponsors

Inter Milan have been made an official shirt-sponsorship offer of £20m from adult webcam company Stripchat as they approach the end of their 26-year deal with Pirelli.

The tyre manufacturer, who have provided one of the most iconic sponsors in Italian football history, announced earlier in the month that although the shirt deal would end, their association would go on.

That has attracted the interest of Max Bennett, the Vice President of New Media at Stripchat, who has put forward a bumper fee in return for the promotion of the brand.

While asking the club to consider the offer as they look for new income, Bennett has promised that the crossover represents a ‘fantastic opportunity’ to ‘raise awareness’ of Stripchat.

A sperm for a logo, a porn site for a sponsor, and being raped emotionally as a supporter.

While we are dreaming about winning the scudetto lets go back to the season where we last won it.


Didn't think I would get this emotional watching it. God damn it's a long time ago. Watching Zanetti lift that trophy, fucking hell it felt good

Will continue this here as we're drifting way off topic

yeah, Emre was always a fan favourite but he never really did 'that' much for us imho (hazy memory).


Adriano should have been the future, to be fair, but for circumstances outside of control. Imagine 2006-209 Inter being led by Ibrahimovic+Adriano. Hard to know what we would have done in 2010 if Adriano was peak form though - I'd guess probably no Milito?

I suppose, if everything else remains the same by 2009 and we have Mourinho, even with Adriano in top shape, we would have gone for Diego Milito as a 3rd choice as Cruz and Crespo were gone and under Moratti we always prioritized having lots of strikers. And we do not know if Zlatan would still want out (perhaps in 2009 we win the thing with Adriano in peak form, but let's assume we do not). So maybe we still go through with the Zlatan-Eto'o swap. Cannot complain much there :D

I think next season shows what our young-ish core is about. I have confidence it will keep doing well.

When it comes to our financial situation, if we just can get out of this current liquidity crisis, I think it will be better. Our wage bill goes up with the renewals of Lautaro, Bastoni, De Vrij, Barella, Brozovic. But also the amortization bill goes down a bit with the renewals of Barella and Bastoni (big annual amortization cost). Any sale of unwanted players will reduce amortization bill even more.

IMO we are in a bit different situation compared to 05 because we're just rising to be a force in CL. In 05 we were a team which advanced to knockouts on a regular basis (we were in semifinals only in two years ago in 03). Now we're only a rising club, with a young core mixed with experience.

I think times are vastly different now and a young core can be more noisy in this decade than the 2000s. The 2010s showed the way, since that's our new norm.

When you have guys like Zanetti, Maldini, Puyol, Cannavaro etc as veterans on the team, you're bound to have an effect during those times. They're still relevant in the modern game, probably more so in some leagues/competitions than others, but it's a game where high pressing is more important now (we were having similar playing style in the 70s actually) and top teams gather a lot of young talented players so at some point it just depends on quantity and not as much on quality. Having more players above a standard threshold of quality is more important than having extremely high quality players.

Yeah I agree with that sentiment.

The point is however that we are in a good spot to go forward if the immediate financial worries will be handled by the owners (and match day revenues will be back starting next season). We don't need massive overhauls to be competitive in Europe (if Conte just finds a way for us to play there competitively)

I don't care about the age of the players, it's a question of status and power. Big teams always keep the coach/player they want.

Why fucking Madrid are in the semis again with a 40-year-old Modric?

edit. Took the liberty to move this post here as it seemed to relate to the discussion in Conte thread - CafeCordoba

Cause Modrić is one of a kind,something like Zanetti. If you have one or two players like that in your club every three decades,you are fortunate son of a bitch :D

one thing I would say - I dont think this midfield as it stands is a top end CL one. It's good for our purposes right now, but I think its too lightweight for good CL progress. I dont want to speculate on names to 'fix it', as such, nor who should leave for us to get there. Really, we should be able to combine Eriksen + brozovic into one player IMHO, Barella's fine as he is but needs to continue his development as a creative player and get a bit more 200 iq on some of his plays, then you need a more physical midfielder.

100% agreed. Also a proper LWB is also needed.

ah yeah LWB was implicit since its likely to change this summer anyway tbh.

I think the defense is up to it for the most part, maybe more experience at the top level would help but they're all top defenders. Attack, Lukaku will be polarising until he delivers more consistently, and same is true for Lautaro, but i think on their current track with a successful next season, they should be good for competing at least.

we got more problems on attack

we have like TWO, TWO attacking players, one is lautaro and for today he isnt top,
he is here for 3 years and was playing in every fail game in CL in last 3 years

second is lukaku, belgian league champion, guy playing for very good NT, main attacker there and won nothing, everton/manutd same


just compare our attack to any top4 in CL this year, psg, city, real, chelsea its just LOL

how many top teams got only 2 attacking players?

well, Lautaro was pretty epic in the CL LAST year to be fair. This year not really. And remember, he's on a growth trajectory. 2 seasons ago he scored 9 goals in 35 games. Last season 21 in 49. This season 17 in 40.

On Lukaku as well, he's playing better than he's ever played before (AFAIK). He's in overall good form and if he continues to develop under Conte he could be pretty damn good.

From here, it's probably 30% individual talent development, 70% team development. For the most part we're playing like 100 IQ football, the objective next season should be to get that up to 150 IQ and really exploit the characteristics of our players more. Hakimi is a great example (And, imho, another attacker on your list) as well as whoever the new LWB is. We should be able to exploit their skills far better than we currently do, and if we do, there's a great chance of much more intelligent attacking play

Not really that jealous of City's situation. Or Real Madrid's.

We also have Sanchez and Pinamonti. And Perisic would qualify as an attacking player. If we played with Chelsea's formation for example perhaps we'd be set in terms of depth.

There is a shortage of central attacking talent. PSG is stacked but only Icardi and to an extent Mbappe can play centrally, Barcelona was stacked but not anymore with Suarez gone. Is there another team that actually has more than 2 quality strikers? Bayern barely has the one and then it's Choupo-Moting.
Most of the talent drifts out wide nowadays or cuts in from wide, anyway.
