Thuram 2
Arnautovic 6
Darmian 4
Barella 5.5
Calhanoglu 5
Mkhitaryan 4
Augusto 3
Bisseck 5.5
Acerbi 3
Bastoni 4
Sommer 4

Inzaghi 4

...Dragusin 10.

Probably just added 20m to his market value from this game alone. Way to make that cunt look like a fucking world class talent.

Terrible match to end the year but obviously a draw is not the end of the world. I didn't like the holiday vibes from the guys because there is no holiday coming up. We have a game in just a week and a game every week after that for the next few months. Can't start looking dead already.

Inzaghi has his faults but let's get real, our bench has been very disappointing and not even close to what we thought before season started.

Lack of responsibility in our key players like Barella, Mkhi, Hakan lately, and some others has been frustrating to watch. We've been overplayed in midfield even against inferior opponents. I understand that these players are tired, but there was almost no desire to win.

I don't think Lautaro would solve tonight's issues. We've failed as a group. Very very poor display though. Unlike other times we've dropped points but still created chances or looked somewhat competitive, but tonight we've been plain horrible, and players deserve as much blame as coach does, if not more.

You cant win every game, we have many old players who has no rest cause obviously our subs are not that good. We need rwb and another striker in January. Sanchez needs to fuck off.
juve and milan play their 18 year olds, but inter cant play a player under 23?... the problem is not that the players are bad, but that the coach is a pussy.

The way we can turn a full half into a half of nothingness is actually worrying. Just like the match against Juve I saw no urgency to get a win.
This has been an ongoing issue. No push to win matches in the second half of games. Juventus, Benfica, Sociedad, Bologna (both games), and now today.

I get being more pragmatic but it seems like whenever we feel like a team can actually hurt us we kind of cower a bit. Our mentality has been just don’t lose instead of go for the win.

At least against Juve it was acceptable, they don't concede easily with their terrorist football. But we acted like Genoa is real today, fuck that really.

we should win this game without any of our strikers... wtf are these low ass standards? We didnt draw vs a top 5 team. this was fucking Genoa.
That's not how football works. Otherwise, Mourinho's Inter should have had 38 wins in 2009/2010. Same with Pep's Man City this year.

Our whole midfield sucked, not just Mhkitaryan. Too many clowns think they can coach Inter.

Man City has won everything there was to win. I can understand if their players are not as hungry as before... Just as Inter with Mou, when the goal was the Champions league.... But from this team, that has failed to win the Scudetto the last two seasons, I expect more. From the players and the coach.

I‘m curious to read what you would’ve done differently today if you’d like to elaborate.

But Manchester City dropped points even before they won the CL. Last season they lost at home against Brentford for example.

Well, i agree but not completly, there was some chance where Lautaro would have done better then Arnautovic. He's just too bad even as third striker. We lost as team but sometimes you need to make profit of that 1-2 chances you have when the team is having a bad day. We will not get a new striker in January and that's worrying. Inzaghi better starts studying a new way to replace Thuram/Lautaro when theyre injured.

Only Pazzini saved our scudetto in 09/10 dont forget, people. Roma was the winner until :pazzini: scored 2 .

And nobody remembers that. Well, except me , 13.5 years later.

He wouldnt play any player older than 30, except Klaassen who would play instead Mhiki, he would throw Agoume and more primaveras. We would be 15th on a table right now.

Seems to me you didnt saw the match. Arna and Bastoni were the only players that played well.

Don't have one.

In hindsight, he should have change things up in defense and midfield, de vrij, fratessi starting for sure. But that's the thing, bar injury forced rotations, he runs to the ground every single starter until he gets a slap in the face like tonight.
