I want him to shot more or do anything what it takes to get himself into the shoting opportunities. Don't know anyone else who has a better shooting power and accuracy at the same time, but of course you cannot expect him to deliver one out of once.

Other than that, he has been great. Eriksen could never be as good as him defensively, and besides of that he's way more aggressive.

Unpopular opinion, i think he's better regista than Brozo. His passing and long shoot much better also he's consistent not moody like Brozo.

Never. Brozo isn't as aggressive as Hakan maybe but his ability to receive the ball under pressure and drag it forward or turn around is superior. Besides he's more intelligent and has a better vision of the game. Actually Brozo's shooting is great but not as potent as Hakan's, but still good enough for that position. That was a way too premmature statement IMO, but of course Hakan's performances as regista were fantastic.

Besides of Dzeko, I don't think any other player in our team copes better under pressure than Brozo.

We should definitely move to some dual regista situation like we had with Eriksen and keep Bare further up the pitch. I feel like playing deeper also helps open up the shot for Hakan since he’s often receiving the ball with more space on the edge of the box.

To me, it seems we keep possession better with Brozovic there, but move the ball forward quicker with Calhanoglu.

Hakan takes more risk and is a more progressive passer. Brozo is more like a metronome he kind of goes side to side but gives us some fluidity.

I think Mkhi is also giving our midfield a different dimension. He runs a lot like Barella and plays some nice one touch passes sometimes. Hakan doesn’t penetrate as much.

I never really understood Brozo as a regista. If he's a classic DM, sure. He's good defensively.

But his nature is a box-to-box CM like Vidal, not some great passer.

Is there a place where we can see amount of forward passes, in middle third, attacking third etc...

I think people are jumping to conclusions too fast with these Brozovic vs Hakan comparisons. Sample for regista Hakan is too small and let's not forget his fuckup against Roma. Also Brozovic is far more consistent than Hakan and it isn't even close. Hakan is the definition of inconsistency. It wasn't long ago that Inter's midfield couldn't function without Brozovic and he was crucial in our game.

But the reality has shown differently. He was used a lot as a box to box at the start of his career at Inter and he was never that good. Instead he turned into a top player only when Spalletti started using him as a regista. That's his position. You can argue you prefer a more traditional DM in front of defence but that's a different discussion.

We are playing faster when Hakan is regista, I love Brozo but he is too fkn slow. We won 5 games and play one draw since Brozo injury.

Imagine Inzaghi put him as regista instead of Barella and Vidal last season when Brozovic got injured and we fucked up against Sassuolo (0-2) and Fiorentina (1-1) at Meazza.

Inzaghi tried him as regista against Torino last season and tbh the result wasn't that good. Hakan wasn't good against Roma either but now he's bossing it in the position. That's why you need to give time to a player to adjust. If Inzaghi had instantly dropped Hakan regista experiment after Roma we wouldn't be watching this transformation. The whole organization (coach, management, fans) needs to be patient with players.

Didn't he play Vecino as a regista against Torino last season? I remember everyone thinking it was a crazy decision.

Also, against Roma, I believe Asllani was the regista, unless you are referring to a different Roma game.

I had the impression it was Hakan playing in the away game against Torino but i won't insist. Maybe i don't remember it well. As for the Roma game, i messed it up with Sassuolo game. So yeah. Scratch that argument.

Eriksen would be phenomenal under Limonade, he is playing like a boss right now. Hakan is a joke compared to him.
This is of course "1 goal, 1 assist in 245 minutes of game time and a 6.95 rating on Whoscored" Hakan Calhanoglu who is a joke compared to "zero assists, zero goals in 353 minutes of game time and an average rating of 6.38 on Whoscored" Christian Eriksen, yes?
Read better my posts next time okey? Limonade is not Cunte you get it? Eriksen proved long time ago how great he is while Hakan still is a so so player.
But Eriksen is 'bossing' right now, is what you're saying, while simultaneously fundamentally being statistically outplayed by Calhanoglu (playing under a coach you think is woeful).

How does that make sense?
Did you watch Eriksen against Liverpool? Obviously not. I know you hate Eriksen so there is no reason to continue with you. Eriksen is considered by his peers, managers and football pundits as one of the best midfielders in history of PL, meanwhile Hakan is not even best player in his team. Sapienti sat.
What the fuck does his reputation have to do with his current level? By all measurable accounts he’s worse than Calhanoglu right now, and you having seen the one United match they won doesn’t change that.

You’re talking out of your ass - like always - in order to belittle something Inter related - like always.
Worse then Hakan right now?!? LMAO! You are total football ignoramus. I'll leave you with that.
2 months on, and this doesn't look quite bad for the "total football ignoramus".
We all pretty much thought the season would implode with Brozo out, but now Hakan has 2 goals and 4 assists in 1172 minutes and an average league rating of 7.09 as a deep laying playmaker, and was down-right instrumental in pulling us out of the slump. Eriksen has 5 assists, 2 of them in Europa League, zero goals, and a league rating of 6.53 in 1204 minutes.


Kudos to Hakan - I didn't think he had it in him, but he's been absolutely integral to us. No way a step down to Eriksen, in any case.
