Also a win over Milan if we are still 14p ahead of them at that point, would still have the exact same outcome, that the Scudetto would be mathematically secured, the only difference is as before a draw would have done it.

I forget, in 2021 was there this much hysteria after the draws against Napoli and Spezia?

When we met City we were in a good form, right now we would be completely smashed to pieces by a team like Barca, City and co. We would not stand a single chance… we are not even remotely anywhere the level we played in that final, right now we are rubbish and been rubbish ever since the Genoa game.

You cannot put you beliefs up on something that happened closer to one year ago, it’s the current form that matters and it’s nowhere to be found

Thankfully there is international break it could not possibly have arrived at a better time… because right now we are mentally and physically not where we need to be.

People thought we would get "smashed to pieces" by City last year. I'd argue we've been a superior team this year.

The difference is against City there was no pressure, as no one expected anything. Against Atletico we were slight favourites and choked on a massive dick.

This team has a mental problem more than anything.

Those were both fouls. Ref would have given those to Dimarco tbh.
Bro had both hands wrapped around Buchanan and was applying his body weight through his chest.

Juan Jesus scoring against us is the ultimate dick punch.

Not a great performance but not a bad performance either. A draw is probably the right result. The international break is coming at the right time tbh. We need to recharge and refocus for the final push.

Imo, we were better but again we just switched off last minutes and allowed them to siege us in our penalty area.

Wouldn't be so harsh to this unsatisfactory result. ATM get destroyed 0-3 by Barcelona at their home too. Both teams gassed out after 120+ minutes.

The break can't come at better time.

The goal off the corner was the direct result of us self destructing in our own half.
Self destructing sounds quite a hyperbole, but carry on with this narrative guys. :D

I couldn’t catch it live, but finished watching the full replay.

Broadly speaking, we did okay. Our system is still ticking along smoothly, the only major concern was our finishing and Thuram’s dip in form.

It wasn’t an emphatic performance, but the most part the squad bounced back well.

The fatigue was obvious as Hakan and Miki covered approximately 1km less in 90mins than they usually do, but at least the passing a lot more crisp compared to Athletico.

I'm wondering why some people are so riled up? Because they want to reach Juve's record?

I really can't see how Inter doesn't win this second star in the next 5 matchdays. Milan plays the second leg against Roma 3 days before the derby. I fully expect a good result against Milan, who have to play Juve directly after that game.

TBH i couldn't care less about breaking records. I just want to see that second star on our shirt.

I can't help but feel a little bit insecure about not getting the scudetto, bceause hey, this is Inter, we've literally been witnesses of many things as fans.

But i want to stay positive and not feel this insecure about losing 2 points in a difficult derby match.

Again I talk not about how we played a month ago, but our current form. Focus on how we played a month ago is quite irrelevant if we aren’t playing like that currently, the only thing that matters is the current form.

The main reason we went out in CL was because we had a dip in form leading up to it. We haven’t been playing as well as we did before the Genoa game, hopefully the break helps and we recover more and return to better form…

I want to see more minutes of Asllani, Bissek and Buchanan. Especially Buchanan so we should know how impact he can have next year, does he play better on the right and compete with Dumfries, or better on the left and convert Carlos to LCB?

I don't get it either tbh. I get certain criticism about the coach and some players, some things definitely need to improve on an individual level, but as a team if someone told me a year ago we will be having this type of season, especially regarding our defense and how solid we were there, I would have laughed him off.

It's a huge fuckin privilege to be 14 points clear on the top with nine games to go. It's literally as perfect of a league season as you can realistically hope for in the best case scenarios.

That just rubs salt in the wound of the utter failure on Wednesday. Barca are awful this season and smashed them and we couldn't get a result...

It’s because we had two “poor” results in a row. I think we’re afraid to say it but we’re all secretly a little afraid of a blackout. Just part of being an Inter fan I guess.
