Il Signore, another tricky time for you, so we have only Acerbi, Dimarco, Carlos, Darmian, Bisseck, and Cuadrado left to fill 5 spots.

The personal is so limited, only the tactics can help with energy allocation, at least 2 home games in a role, maybe more possessions less classing, more midfielders moving around; funny enough a Dimarco-Carlos-Acerbi-Bisseck-Darmian is better to play high line than sit tight back, might be a bit harder to play from the back, but given it is Udinese, we should be able to handle it.

Most worry for Dimarco, cause running 90 minutes might be too much. It could possibly go into Darmian-Carlos-Acerbi-Bisseck-Cuadrado in the second half, but then Darmian might be too tired against la Real.

The WB energy is the most delicate here, CB should be fine. Maybe Bastoni will be ready in CL and Darmian and Caudrado can share the mins then.

Hope we get an early goal and we can play it slow and wait for a second goal.

I think Bastoni will be ready for this one - although not sure if he'll start. I think we'll see one of the following options:

Option 1: Darmian - Bisseck - Acerbi - Bastoni - C.Augusto(Dimarco) (this allows to have two wingbacks that can change the match from the bench)

Option 2: Cuadrado - Darmian - Acerbi - Bastoni - C.Augusto(Dimarco)

Option 3 if Bastoni cannot start: Darmian - Bisseck - Acerbi - C. Augusto - Dimarco

I don't see Simone playing Cuadrado and Bisseck at the same time as he'll find it too risky defensively. If Bastoni cannot start, I think Cuadrado will definitely be on the bench, because I don't see Simone starting with all 4 wingbacks that are fit and not having any of them as an option off the bench.

It's not like it was a difficult task to win at home against Udinese, but at least he's making competent decisions lately. A heavy rotation would probably complicate things more than people can imagine. These league matches can be very tricky if you don't have a proper approach. The same Udinese managed to defeat Milan in San Siro. I expected a tougher clash tbh, but we never gave Udinese a chance, which is truly impressive how deadly Limone's Inter has become.

Credit to mister for these results. He owes us a Scudetto, but at the same time, that would put him in Inter's history as one of the best coaches of this club. So glad that he's managed to turn things around.

I'm having flashbacks of December 2021, when we were flying in Serie A and everyone was creaming their pants over our bel giuoco. We all remember what happened in February...

Unfortunately the outcome of this season is already written, but it is not Simone's fault. I wrote him off last season after the halftime subs against Udinese but now, against the same opponent, I see fit to praise him. He's converted me, an avid catenaccio enjoyer, into a fan of the bel giuoco. Watching this Inter play is really pleasing to the eyes and the soul.

I think our team is well aware of what happened earlier, hence there's a different approach these days.

Team looks matured compared to earlier seasons, also there's a couple of matches we've escaped undefeated although we played like shite, which goes to show that mentality of this team is not the same to what has been in past couple of seasons.

This group tasted defeat, so I think it's a learnt lesson. My biggest concern is attacking department. Not having a proper striker as a backup might bite us in the ass. Arnautovic has been pretty poor so far, and Alexis is never consistent. So, entire season depends on Lautaro and Thuram, in case one of them picks up a long term injury, we are fucked. Let's hope management brings a decent striker come January, someone who could be useful in particular occasions.

I think the only job inzaghi have is to keep the players sharp and in good form, we have great players, we play great football, the only thing that can hurt us is mental problems, that season must be ours!!

Sensi as SS to the rescue :lol:

We are so limited with our money and sadly we can't really sell Arna or Sanchez to fund another striker coming. So if we'll have multiple striker injuries, I have a feeling Sensi will play in Serie A.

I'd also like another striker, but it ain't happening.

I cant remember seing Inter playing like this (even in tripleta era when its Seria A) and I follow Inter since 1994. But all of that wont matter if we drop this form and start slipping. Hope he win us scudetto this season. It would be so deserving considering he loses one or two players from starting 11 every mercato.

The brand of football that we are playing with him in charge is simply a joy to watch. If you are introducing somebody to Italian football, better pick an Inter game.

But too bad most people tend to watch a Juventus game as their first Serie A experience. Juventus games are a cure for insomnia.

Are we thinking that other teams will be sniffing around in the summer after his very impressive 2023?

Though, I don’t see many top teams needing a new manager. Maybe Newcastle or United?

Even among EPL fansboys who see Serie A as a very inferior league his name is brought up as an option for Man Utd bench, mostly because of his CL campaign. So there could be rumours in the future, especially if he has another good CL campaign.

But he doesn't seem the type who's searching for a challenge abroad. He looks happy at Inter.

Tbh not so much that but at inter he's boosting his reputation atm. If he wants to make a step up to a bigger name club where he'll grow his reputation further he should at least finish out this season if not one more after. Another decent CL run and a league title under his belt will change perspectives on him significantly, he could walk into a well paid job somewhere else after.

Truly. I detest teams that play too carefully, like crabs sauntering about. Boldness is the way. This side has grown into something magnificent this season and I am enjoying it greatly.

Inter hired Inzaghi in 2021 to replace Antonio Conte and the Italian tactician and has recently extended his contract until June 2025. Therefore, he was asked if he aimed to imitate Guardiola and Klopp and remain at the club for many years.

“This is the target. I think this is true for every coach,” he admitted.

“I spent several years at Lazio, and I hope I can stay here for as long as possible, but the pitch does the talking.

I won’t say it couldn’t happen, but I don’t see Inzaghi going away anytime soon. He’s basically our managements ideal coach— gets on with whatever he’s got and doesn’t make too much of a fuss. Also I don’t think Inzaghi speaks a lick of English or any other foreign language for that matter. I don’t see him wanting to leave Italy unless he really dreams of coaching abroad and wants the exposure, which aren’t really the vibes I get from him but who knows.

Inzaghi: On the day of Eriksen’s problem, I called Marotta and Piero Ausilio because there were reports Calhanoglu would not remain at Milan,” Inzaghi said at a press conference on Monday, as quoted by FcInter1098.



“They told me they had already contacted him, so [his signing] was a common idea for everyone. We signed him to play as a box-to-box midfielder, but I tried him [as a playmaker] in some training sessions after Marcelo Brozovic’s injury. He confirmed he could play there after just a few games. He is an important player with the qualities of a playmaker.”
