Chivu is having a pretty shitty season with Primavera, he is 10th or so. As much as I like the guy and I know him quite well, he is nowhere near ready. Would probably end up around Stramaccioni level at best. He is definitely a manager for the future though as he is taking it quite serious.
We do not have a realistic alternative to Inzaghi at the moment but there is absolutely zero chance he continues next season.

You don't get it.

The target is to get to top 4, no matter how.

I'm gonna claim despite lose to Porto and Juve, Inzaghi is still our best bet for that. No Serie A coach is available (as per rules) and as I said, we won't get some well-known foreigner. Chivu is a total lottery ticket compared to us banking on Inzaghi to get decent results + our rivals fucking up at the same rate as us.

There is no meltdown inside the locker room anywhere to be seen.
I do get it, but if our plan to make top 4 is 'hopefully everyone fails harder than we fail', that's a pretty poor plan. I'd rather have a plan with some degree of affirmative action - because, after all, if it goes wrong, it can pretty much only go wrong as badly as the current plan is anyway. The plan we're articulating here of everyone failing harder than Inter is basically relying on everyone else, something we have no control over, we should aim for the things we have some control over to succeed.

Hell, you could interim Conte if he gets fired by Tottenham.

If we lose to Juventus, there's serious risk of us dropping out of the top 4. If that happens, we need to intervene, leaving it until after a potential bad result against Fiorentina is too late.

Okay, you just don't get it.

You are projecting us to keep the same inconsistency level but expecting our rivals to start winning consistently. And then you expect that this new guy would suddenly make us win consistently.

Conte as interim coach? Come on.

Inzaghi getting fired becomes relevant only in the case there is some serious rift in the locker room and he simply cannot work there anymore. I consider this kind of scenario extremely unlikely. Last time the coach lost the locker room was 4 years ago with Spalletti. He still stayed and made the top 4.

If Juventus get their points deduction removed, if Milan win tonight then suddenly we're only just 4th, and Lazio are in better form that us too.

Based on the last 5 games of form, Juve, Milan and Lazio could all easily go above us by the end of the season if things dont improve for us. That's ignoring head to head matches, too - which is why I say, if Juve goes wrong next weekend, we have big fucking problems.

I don't expect necessarily too much from the new guy, but, if we're admitting defeat basically with Inzaghi, then I'd rather try something a bit riskier to see if we can do somewhat better than losing most of the rest of the season and going out of the league because our coach has unimaginative subs, doesn't know how to motivate the team, cant put any faith in trying something new even when things are failing.

Not making the CL for next season means we probably sell Brozovic, Bastoni, and dont have any real cash for replacing anyone properly. We will lose our ability to stay in the top 4, and it'll be banter era again before you know it.

Did you watch the Spezia match? We play that match 20 times and we win 17/20. We draw maybe two, we lose one. That one loss happened but it's not like our season is done because one extremely unlikely event occurred.

Our rivals can't play much better than us. Juve might get better results than us and it matters if they get their points back. But Milan, Lazio, Roma, come on man. It would require 2/3 them to beat us. Have you watched those teams play? They are not great. Their results are inconsistent and their game is not great, it's inconsistent. Just like us.

You are just frustrated to Inzaghi so you want to bet on something totally unreliable thinking it's a better bet than going with Inzaghi, who STILL after all the shithousery, is second in the league after this MD (Milan won't overtake us on equal points).

Honestly, I hope not, but in this league, lets not bet on it

Lazio last 5 games - 3 W 1 D 1 L
Inter last 5 games - 2 W 1 D 2 L

Its not just about the Spezia game. It's the lack of creativity. It's that we werent particularly strong against Lecce, its losing to Bologna, it's the lack of inspiration from the bench and the decisions made by Inzaghi.

It's also the tough schedule coming up - Juve (in not bad form), Fiorentina after (won 3 in a row now), Salernitana after (ok, that should be a win, but if anyone can throw it right now its Inzaghi with this team), Monza after that (we all remember what happened in the first match


I'm not saying we use Chivu as an interim, but I think we need to start exploring options. We pretty much cant afford even a single week where we drop points vs our rivals right now otherwise CL looks very unlikely.

We dominated Sampdoria too, but lost two points there. So, it's two unlikely events that happened. With the late equalizer by Monza, they are already three.
We almost dropped points against Udinese as well, but the incompetence of Success saved us.

If there's one thing I believe about this inter, without Conte, it's that you put us in a do-or-die situation, and we'll crumble like nothing. It's not a team with the resilience or atitude to succeed in challenging situations, at the moment.

Do you remember Conte's Inter in do-or-die situation in CL?

Sure, we were ass in the CL but in the league we were pretty good. We wouldn't have thrown so many points vs shit teams under conte.

But our Cl performance still does not bode well with your theorie of us folding in big moments....
Same goes for most big matches in serie a yes we lost to many of them but we never looked like shit..... Unlike we do against the small teams

like the game against barca in barcelona has been our biggest do or die challenge in years and we looked pretty good

I'm not talking about throughout the season, I'm talking about now. Maybe it's fatigue. Maybe it's skriniars announcement. Maybe it's the lack of bench. But right now I see a broken Inter that is going to really struggle, has been struggling for a while, and isn't able to do what it needs to.

I think gutting it out with Inzaghi for the rest of the season is the only way forward. Our only interim option is Chivu, who isn’t really doing well with Primavera, and doesn’t seem ready at all for that sort of gig. Who else are we going to go for, Iachini and Ballardini?

We just need to back him fully till the end of the season, hunker down, and hope for the best.

Inter plays best in UCL because we play competent teams who force us to play more counter attacking. Which has always been how we play best because the 3-5-2 is a counter attacking formation. He’s trying to play possession ball with a team built for the counter.

I hope no matter who’s coach next year we get rid of this fucking formation and get some legit wingers. Inter needs to do better because right now it seems like the entire club is trying to shove a square peg in a round hole.

When the next club comes to ask Inzaghi what happened, he can say so many things to make himself look better. Now Inzaghi fucked up royally with Correa, but otherwise he deserved more leeway from the management since it's not his fault we are so much in debt.
