Villarreal bought Sorloth for 10M last summer (familiar price,eh?). We need to find this players before they had seasons like he had this year. Now it's too late.
Yes, not like some fans here said, strikers better than Arnautovic do exist. Just that we didnt scout good enough to grab him. Similar to Lookman.

When the world know one he is already categorized "too expensive for Inter". Rinse and repeat.

It’s not about scouting in this case, we where not looking for a development prospect but a player with expertise that could go in and deliver when called on.

Sorloth Would not have played even half of what Arna ended up playing because Inzaghi had no wish to develop a new attack if so we would just have kept some of our own talent

Leao would not have played even half of what Correa ended up playing here because Inzaghi had no wish to develop a new attack if so we would just have kept some of our own talent.

We’re in 2024 people still write LOL

Read what I said, signing Zirkzee sounds trash and Zirkzee is trash are two different things. Signing Bruno Fernandes for instance also sounds trash. Why spend money on a position we’re very well equipped in.

Zirkzee is redundant in our line up with Lautaro in it
and I will stand by it
LOL
If the new striker, Lautaro, or Thuram get injured we’re left with the issue of having to start one of Taremi and Arnautovic and honestly I dread that. Suddenly we’re very weak in the attack.

We must have three starting calibre strikers.
Exactly. So are we very well equipped or not? 🤭

According to Marotta and Inzaghi, the goal is to raise the bar. We failed to convert enough vs Man City and Atletico.

Given that we don't use traditional wingers or AM, the logical move is to bring a top forward that adds another dimension to our attack. I believe that's what Inzaghi wants as well.

Having competition for the starters would keep them on their toes and ensure consistent performances. May the most in form play!

Don't have one.
Anyone read latest gudmundson interview? He is backtracking hard from a dream of playing in premier league and said he changed his mind. Someone probably pulled him aside and said you should stop talking about that when your main and most high profile buyers are in italy :lol:

Anyway, I think he is by far our likeliest buy in attack, and rightfully so. Probably the most versatile player we are being linked with, and inzaghi likes those.

Yeah, to me it seems like a confirmation that Inter will sign him and not Zirkzee. Hope the majority of FIF will be happy.

“As a child, I used to dream of the Premier League, but I’ve changed my mind now.

“My preferred position is as a Number 10, as it is important for me to have the freedom to roam and express my creativity.” - Gson

Lifestyle is also important to the forward coming from a footballing family, who admits it has been a revelation to live 10 minutes from the sea, where he can even have a dip in winter.

He had 26-6 this season,how much development he needed?

I get new league,big team,blabla...I'm not even suggesting we should have gone for him cause I don't know his characteristics.

It's just not true that you can't find better option for the same price.

I mean,sometimes you can even buy good option on a first look but he become fail later. Nothing to complain there. But Arnautović was never that in the first place.

I dunno the veracity of this story yet, just something I saw a few minutes ago is all...

Icelandic Albert Gudmundsson is to be accused of sexual assault.

The charge comes after Iceland's attorney general overturned the district attorney's decision made back in February.

- The witness's explanation is extremely credible, says Eva Bryndis Helgadottir, who is the lawyer for the woman who was supposed to be the victim in the case.

- This is of course in line with what my client has said from the very beginning. So it is no surprise that she is now believed. The case must go through the court system now.

- An indictment has not been created, published and confirmed yet, and it is impossible to say how long the case will last, the lawyer tells Visir. However, she believes that Gudmundsson will probably be charged with sexual assault.

Albert Gudmundsson is currently playing for Genoa, and he has previously been part of the Icelandic national team.

However, he has been on break from the Icelandic national team during the entire course of the case, which started last summer - except for the playoff games for the EC in March this year.

Here, Gudmundsson was back, but Iceland failed to qualify.

Gudmundsson has also not been selected for the upcoming test matches for the Icelandic national team, and the lawyer is happy about that.

- This is justified, taking into account her (the victim's) credibility, and justified on the basis that the case is about to end with a verdict, Eva Bryndis Helgadottir tells Ruv.

Guess he can be removed from the list very soon then… I doubt this club will go through with a player having such accusations hanging over their head as he potentially face jail time.

If anything, I instead think people are way better of just totally and utterly disregarding any little thing you might have to say regarding accusations made towards football players.

And Sanchez had 18 goals last season in France. How many he scored for us this season?
Stop comparing some guys which are playing in different leagues.

All 3 players bought in 2023 summer:

Sorloth: 8+2millions - 23 goals
Dovyk: 7.75 millions - 24 goals.
Arnatunovic: 8millions - 3 goals.



The only reason why we Atletico eliminated us.
No, we got eliminated because we didn’t score on our chances in our home game…

Neither of those would be starters here they would be 4th violin, the reason they turned out so well are a combination of being played and playing in a defensively weaker league and having no sort of pressure or expectations on them.

Sørloth and Dovyk had shown nothing of note on a bigger scene before, playing mainly in low rank leagues. Sørloth failed in EPL, failed in Bundesliga, got a limited amount of succes in Socidad and then hit a wonder season this term that I guarantee no one saw coming. Dovyk Came from Ukraine where he had one good season again not many anticipated he actually would replicate it again both largely did so well because there where no expectations and no pressure on them and likely could be a one time performance. Unlikely they gotten into such form as 4th choice here.

We also were looking for something with experience and that has a more proven record in the league.

Sanchez came off a much better season than both of those guys.

Arna had a very similar season to Sørloth by the way…

No he didn't.
In some fifers view La Liga top scorers aren't better than an Inter flop :lol: Let's help Serie A teams buy their trash coz he is a local.
Those guys might or might not succeed in Serie A but they showed their ceiling is as high as 25 goals/season mark. In a TOP league, not French. While Arnau is retiring next season and he still proves shit.

None of those guys scored that tally in a top league before, Sørloth had failed in basically all major league he ever sat foot in, he came from 12 goal season in Socidad the first and only time he showed just a little, the previous he made 4! That’s why Inter and others had no interest in the lad because he had previously not shown much. Dovbyk never sat foot in a major legue at that point, he only showed something at that point in a league in a war plagued country and in the Danish league for 6 months.

Such would go completely unnoticed and be of no interest to teams like Inter

So what did Arnau do better than them? Show me once in his entire career where he scored 25 goals in any league, even Azerbaijan's??

For a cheap 4th striker those profiles are exactly what we should aim for, unproven in lower league. Those two blossom in a top league for now you reject them due to low profile. Arnau flops at Inter again you still see him a better deal. Wft man...what do you expect them to do more to convince you, winning CL with Real or City then get them for cheap?
