Damn. Too many goals from us ... Means we will lose our next game.

First thought that came to me. And there's uncertainty about Lukaku featuring there.

If Darmian can cross like that, I see Young`s starting position in danger on the left.

Finally a proper way to start January! Let`s lift silverware this year bros

Nice comfortable win, those two goals conceded were meh as we woke up right away. No complaint about Conte as we've pretty much been comfortable today,albeit against a serie B side, plus hfe rightfully took out his fellow rubentino in the second half. It was worth waking up at 630 in the morning.

Happy new year,boys.

The only person expressing hate here is you towards Icardi. And it is tiring. Nobody cares about Icardi, but as long as you mention him, perhaps once every five times someone will remind you of why he was a better player at Inter than Lukaku is.

Either way, I don't see you calling everyone who criticize Lukaku an "Icardi fanboy". You're present during matches in the threads, why don't you respond to everyone who says shit about him? I'm not even one of the people writing shit about him during games...

I don't hate Icardi, and I had always been praising him for his performance. Show me a post where I am coming up with something ridiculous just to belittle his contributions on the pitch like you always do with regards to Lukaku.

I don't respond to other one-time haters cuse they write shit when he is really shit and credit him when he deserves credits. You on the other hand blindly hate Lukaku no matter how he performs.

Brehme has some deep rooted psychological issues with Lukaku..

nothing wrong with Lukaku's game today, done his bit for the team, held up the ball well, played great with his back to the goal and scored. Wtf else do you want from him

I wouldn't say there should be no complaints about the first half of the game. We were quite chaotic defensively at the start, and while we were good at converting our chances and ended up netting 6 goals, it wouldn't have been that easy against a bigger team. One could argue that we are fresh out of Christmas break and our defense has not woken up yet, but I would counter that our defense on the whole has been a bit unreliable this season.

And thats nothing new. Conte as is a reactive coach, or at least more so than proactive. So he saw something wrong with Vidal and changed him with Sensi and I'm happy with that.

Second half was good. We are so much better with Sensi, he makes Broz and Barella much better. Please no more Vidal, 5Gag and Young in first 11. Just stop it with that bullshit. It would be great to bring Papu cause we cant depend on injury prone Sensi. Imagine having Sensi and Papu in our roster, it would be great. Hope Lukaku is ok.

This is the first time we have won 8 games in a row since Mourinho. Great performance by the team, especially the attackers Lukaku, Martinez & Hakimi.

Hope Lukaku is ok. Our tactics depend a lot on him.

Nice way to start the New Year. Shaking in the beginning but then solid the rest of the way especially in the 2nd half albeit against a team that will struggle to remain up. Can only play the team that's in front of you, so good job all round.

Didn't Strama win 10 in a row? Or was it just away games? Including Europe of course, something we don't rate nowadays.

Disappointing first half -> Sensi on -> Turn it around and win the game, on repeat for the last 3 games.

Just do it for another 23 games and we win the league :D

I mentioned it in the whatsapp chat but did anyone hear what Conte said to Vidal after Crotone's penalty? I heard him scream "Arturo" and I definitely heard a "cazzo" in there but couldn't make out anything else.

Just saw this, and unsure if anybody answered.

Conte said 'Arturo, gioca e non rompere il cazzo!' twice, which loosely translates to 'shut the fuck up, don't moan and play football'.

Seems fairly apt, especially followed by hauling him off.
