    Juventus - Inter (8 Mar 20) [2-0]

    Tonight's defeat marks the end to our Scudetto ambitions. Not because we basically lost the second season-defining game in a row, but rather because of how we completely collapsed after juve took the lead. We played a decent game for the first hour or so, occupying the field in an orderly manner...

    Juventus - Inter (8 Mar 20) [2-0]

    Today's ludicrous decision proves we should focus exclusively on the Europa League from now on. With no available dates to fit our two postponed games into, the Italian authorities (read: Agnelli) are now banking on us getting eliminated from Europa League and Coppa Italia so that a window may...

    Inter - Ludogorets (27 Feb 20) [2-1]

    The game already presented very few elements of interest due to the general mediocrity displayed by Ludogorets in the first leg and was turned into a glorified Thursday friendly by the absence of crowd in the stands. There was very little of note to record aside Alexis' performance, whose...

    Romelu Lukaku

    Another brace for Big Rom? :pazzini:

    Ludogorets - Inter (20 Feb 20) [Europa League] [0-2]

    Not a particularly convincing performance, but in the end we got the job done with minimum effort. Whatever we were trying to do in the first half, it was yet again too slow and predictable to really trouble the well-meaning but ultimately modest Bulgarians. Only Godin and Moses seemed to grasp...

    Lazio - Inter (16 Feb 20) [2-1]

    Irregardless of the result, I was satisfied with our first half, mainly because we had managed to remain compact on the field and not to give Lazio spaces to attack in transition. As a consequence, most of their plays had resulted in shots from outside the box or crosses from the flanks. Sure...

    Inter - Napoli (12 Feb 20) [Coppa Italia] [0-1]

    Napoli's tactic was keeping eleven players behind the ball at all times, congesting their final third, and then breaking forward whenever they recovered it. One may call it basic or say they were a bit lucky (Ruiz' shot would have gone wide had it not been deflected by Barella), but at least...

    Inter - Milan (9 Feb 20) [4-2]

    What a derby! We sent the milan fans back to where they belong (the sewer) with a comeback they will never forget. Tonight's first half was awful, probably the worst we've played so far this season. Conte was completely outwitted by Pioli and didn't seem to have an answer to milan's free-flowing...

    Udinese - Inter (2 Feb 20) [0-2]

    Precious win, even more so because it came after a poor performance. It's clear by now that most mid to low table Serie A coaches have come to the conclusion that the best way to play against Conte's 3-5-2 is mirroring it. Which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing for us, as oftentimes a game...

    Inter - Fiorentina (29 Jan 20) [Coppa Italia] [2-1]

    A few random considerations about yesterday's game. First of all, I'd say the trequartista experiment failed miserably. In his post-match interview, Conte explained that he basically had to come up with it because there were only two midfielders available. But even so, the lack of coordinated...

    Christian Eriksen

    Welcome, maestro. Not only is this a brilliant signing, but it also represents a statement from the club about its renewed ambitions. After years of hardship and constraint, Inter are once again able to sign a top talent in his prime years. And that's because we finally have the means and the...

    Inter - Cagliari (26 Jan 20) [1-1]

    I really don't get you guys. We were extremely disappointing today, showing the same issues that had been put on display in the Lecce game. That is, lack of intensity, lethargic and uninspired build-up, and horrible decision-making in the final third (Sensi being the main culprit today). Add to...

    Victor Moses

    "Young Moses" sounds more like the title of a cartoon you could find on some Christian tv channel than the names of the wingbacks destined to bring Inter back to its former glory. But it is what it is. Anyway, considering he has already ruptured his thigh muscle twice in the current season and...

    Lecce - Inter (19 Jan 20) [1-1]

    Very poor performance. It's true we had the ball for large parts of the game, but the lack of compactness, intensity and general quality prevented us from really taking advantage of it. With Barella and Sensi still needing time to get back in shape after their respective injuries, our team...

    Ashley Young

    Welcome, I guess. Honestly, I'm not enthused by any of the wingbacks we've been linked to in this mercato, and Young makes no exception. I realise you can't be picky in January - especially when you're on a tight budged - but all these rumours for the WBs positions (both in and out) give me the...

    Inter - Cagliari (14 Jan 20) [Coppa Italia] [4-1]

    Cagliari have been in dire straits lately, and the early goal they gifted us certainly compounded their problems. That being said, we controlled the game with ease (with the sole exception of 10-15 minutes in the second half when we slowed down our rhythm, allowing them to move further into our...

    Inter - Atalanta (11 Jan 20) [1-1]

    Disappointing performance. We started off the right foot, pressing high and taking the game to them, and were rewarded with an early goal. Unfortunately, we pretty much ran out of gas around the 40th minute and ended up merely defending the result for the rest of the game. With our midfield...

    Napoli - Inter (6 Jan 20) [1-3]

    Great win. The only thing I didn't like about today's game was the fact that we let ourselves get caught on the counter by Napoli a few too many times, especially in the first half. I realise we went there to take the game to them, but we should have done a better job at keeping the right...

    Inter - Genoa (21 Dec 19) [4-0]

    Good performance to wrap up a second half of 2019 during which Inter have shown undeniable signs of improvement, despite all the setbacks and teething problems we went through. Today's Genoa were hands down the worst team we've played so far, but considering our current circumstances, winning so...

    Fiorentina - Inter (15 Dec 19) [1-1]

    Well, we can say we flushed 2 points down the toilet today. We didn't play well, which is understandable considering our depleted midfield and the general tiredness of the team, but still you just can't concede a goal on the counter when you're one up in stoppage time and away from home. Conte...
