Not to ruin the parade we played great and it was a great victory but Juan Jesus looked pretty bad at time I thought he was our worst defender launching the ball to absolutely no where countless amount of times.

matrix, bobo
all of us are fucking delighted.

except a certain traffic conductor perhaps? the team scored 2 goals and played so much better after he was subbed off. wonder if he is scared of losing his starting spot? :trollol:

wait a minute. what the fuck am i thinking? he runs the club. of course he will start the next game again. of course he will start every fucking single game. :eek:kay:

Fun Fact is Strama also win againts genoa at his debut with 5-3 win,
and we end up with some massive win or massive lost at the other day

Meanwhile this 2-0 win maybe describing well how we end up at Mazzari hands,
solid win with solid defense but still have somes plenty chances to scored,,
hope this solid perfomance will continue to boost up our confidence first

IL PRINCIPE!
at one point i saw 3 of our midfield players chasing one of genoa player who had the ball...

i was like:

...Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide. No escape from reality. Open your eyes. Look up to the skies and see. I'm just a poor boy.....

:megusta:
Solid performance from the boys! Forza inter!

Alright. Decent win, expected us to win by seeing the first half gameplay. We played very organised but lacked much up front. Second half was so much better, much more aggresivity, more power play, we won more duels, recuperated the ball lots more AND created more chances. The sub of Icardi was the moment the game totally changed. Icardi brought more danger upon the game and gave Palacio/Guarin/Alvarez more space to run with the ball.

Great defense. Solid attack. We need to be more effective though. And seriously need to practice more on crosses. Only Campa's ones were decent. And of course Johhnyboy's assist.

Handanovic : Well did his work. Although he didn't had to do much, he did save the ball. Good.
Campagnaro :Boss debut. Everywhere in the pitch, great addition and helps out on every aspect in defense. Also good crosses
Ranocchia : Decent, won his duels, hadn't much work against Gila, nevertheless promising along Campagnaro
Juan : Boss. Intercepted, didn't randomly fired the ball front except once. Almost no brainfarts. Promising as well.
Jonathan ::datass: Great game by Jonathan. Really fired on his right flank. Worked his ass off, great game! Keep it up!
Guarin :First half bad, second half great. He seems more mature as Box-To-Box. Excellent choice by Mazzarri to keep him on the pitch, and most of all, to tell him to stop shooting everytime and look more for the pass instead. Guaro played mature and had a great assist. Good game overall
Cambiasso :Bad passes, but some nice interceptions. Clearly over the top now. He'd be good as CB now, not as DM.
Kuzmanovic :Also a bad game, didn't do much actually. There was 1 time he went up front and sadly didn't got the ball, he was in scoring position though. His shot on goal was pathetic.
Nagatomo :Very bad first half, Bad second half, but then he scored and suddenly he was on fire. The goal freed him and made him play somehow decent. Nice first goal of Season 2013-2014. But needs to improve drasticaly
Alvarez : Good work, nice moves, always available, trying to force a lot. Played a great game. Love to see him along Kova/Guaro/Icardi. Good game Ricky!
Palacio :Palagoooooool! Nice goal! On first half he was mostly invisible, standing on an island most times. The Icardi sub made him play more open and so he could have more freedom. Good game, lethal striker

Subs

Icardi : The sub that changed the gameplay. Excellent first performance by Icardi, causing instant danger, his aerial work is impressive. Should have scored though. Very promising. [Needs to work on finishing and running though]
Kovacic :Good sub by Mazzarri, Kova ran, created and well he was kind of bossing the midfield. Should play waaay more up front though. Still Kovaaa!
Taider : Promising tackle after his sub. Can't wait to see more of him


Mazzarri :
Excellent debut after weird line-up though. His subs were Boss. Also second half was much better then the first half. Hopefully now he has more of an idea who to start and who not. (Hint Hint Kuz *cough* Cuchu *cough*)
Also kuds for his trust in Jonathan and Alvarez. Many of the posters here would have burnt them in hell already.
Promising debut. Especially the defensive line and pressure he put up :awyeah:



MOTM
Jonathan /Campa

Notable
Icardi, Guarin, Juan

Fucker
First half : Naga

and that's why Mazzari is actually clever. Played Kuz and Cambiasso to hold Genoa until Kova and one of Belfodil/Icardi ready to come as they don't have enough minutes on their legs, plus Icardi got a minor injury. If he played Kova and Icardi/Belfodil from the beginning, we would end with Cambiasso and Kuzmanovic and risk to concede if we didn't score. Bringing Kova and Icardi as fresh legs in the second half was Mazzari tactic to exploit Genoa when they're tired and it was proven. Kova, Icardi, Palacio, Guarin and Taider were running around like in training.

The most important thing is that the fridge is in the kitchen(cucina...Cuchu):trollol::trollol::trollol:

The baldy is DONE!!!

When Kuzmanovic the snail and the fat baldy were subbed with Icardi and Kova we were ...:megusta:

Imagine if we started with

------------Handa
-Hugo--------Frog------JJ
johan--------Kova----Yuto
-----Guarin-----Alvarez
-----Palacio---Icardi

Walt needs to work on that formation...:megusta:

While there is still a lot of work to be done, this was much better than all of the second half of last season.

We look much more fit and actually fight for the ball, pressuring opponents much more. Campagnaro is excellent and a great buy. Juan did well except for a couple of long balls, and one time when instead of clearing to the side, he cleared back to the center.

Nagatomo was pretty bad today, at least he scored. Icardi changed the match and is very good in the air. Kovacic is amazing, the only thing he needs to work on is his shooting.

I also liked that we continued to attack after 1-0, rather than start defending, that was a nice change.
