It is more than obvious that the team is only waiting for the derby and Scudetto. Despite the lack of momentum, we winning the games and that is important.

Forza:interscarf2:!

I had the luck of sitting on the side where all 3 goals were created. Even have the penalty recorded. Udinese fans were fun, but I did think it was 50-50 as far fan representation goes. When Inter scored the second goal, it really felt like half of the stadium was roaring.
It's nice to see other stadiums in Italy besides Meazza.
I have been 3 times in Meazza and next time i go to see an Inter game i'm thinking of going to another city better in the south. My concern is communication, as sometimes you hv to get plane(from my country)+a bus, maybe a cab sometime and another bus. How was Udine anyway..?

Udine is a small town, got a nice, old school shopping mall that is huge, which is the best place for parking and for spending time before the game (the stadium is like 10 minutes walk away). Other than that, not really one of the "have to see" cities and towns of Italy, like Verona or Firenze. I'm biased and I don't like Rome, but I guess Rome is also nice to see.

we dominated 90 minutes and extra time.
Agree with you. But, that our domination could cost us 2 points. That was usseles domination. Anyway, we must play much better and more agresive.

Overall we play like chiken. Why we can not play at least 60 minute, like we played last 10 minutes? To many usseles pass back, no creativity, no intensity... Yes, we will be champions, but with these players, we must play much, much better. No excusess!

Absolutely do not agree with that, we were dominating in every aspect of the game but without unnecessary risk because we believed enough in our ability and concept, that if we kept on playing the ball around, pressuring and pushing this way the chances would eventually come when Udinese was worn tired and so the chances did. Unfortunately we were not cynical enough and their goalie had one of a kind performance, so it required a late push with more offensive minded players. It can happen especially this late in the season. So we were not playing badly we were playing controlled football with focus on energy preservation and letting the ball do the work and letting them burn themselves out by constantly running after the ball and pressing.

Yes certain players had a little too sloppy ball handling and that should be addressed but still then it doesn’t change the overall picture

We learned our lesson in the previous games we run the battery down after 60min, but changed from about the last game, it is less thrilling to watch as it’s more of a slower grinding the opponent down

Mkhitaryan was very good today, but I agree that he needs to get more rotational role next season.
The biggest problem is that Sima doesn’t change him even he is already dead. Now in other games, except the derby, it’s time to use our young players such as Frattesi, Aslani, Tajon. Why the coach doesn’t want to prepare them for the next season is a big question for me.

Coach is here to win the Scudetto. He's not doing anything other than that right now. When that is in the bag, we can probably see some heavier rotation than what we've used to so far.

We're nearly out of gas.

But the finish line is close. 3 points is 3 points.

You're weird
The only time I was there, trash/smell was everywhere and except for the Vatican there aren't particular things that interested me there.

If I had to choose between Capital Cities in Europe, Madrid is the one for me.

Ok that's less weird now.

Not the place to discuss this but I think top 5 European capitals are Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam, Madrid and Rome.
Prague and Budapest come close.

As long as you're not falling for the tourist traps and generally know what you're doing.

I used to go to Udine quite often when I was younger so I’m a bit biased and I quite like its vibe, but absolutely no need to see it when visiting Italy

Honestly I don’t think he is, Roma is only interesting if you care about the two historical periods where it mainly shone, but besides that it’s a dreadful city. I take several other Italian cities over it any day of the week. It’s also completely overrun by American tourists, Firenze would be nicer if not for the fact it feels like visiting the Vatican in rush hour.

Basically capital cities in Europe is generally best avoided, overrun by tourists and generally not the prettiest, nicest of the respective countries the cities are located in, although there few exceptions.
