Because we won does not mean they worked. Come on dude.
It worked in the way that we won the bet. We dropped in quality with the subs, everyone can agree with this. But with the goal cushion and the 20 mins left, we were in the position to manage fitness and prepare for the next game. We won in the end so it worked, dangerous though I agree.

I would be absolutely livid if he’d made these changes with only 1 goal up and 30 mins on the clock to play.

We won but his subs failed. When his subs came on we conceded one goal and 3 major chances. That's a failure. We were absolutely hanging on at the end. From being in a position of extreme comfort, we totally hung on.

I agree, in retrospect that the subs may have been wrong, but Dzeko's performance was totally unexpected, Vidal played like old Vidal and Gags well... the thinking of the Hakan sub was just for the yellow and looking ahead to the CL. Yet, Inter escaped with 3 pts.

I mean I agree with all of your observations.

But the situations didn’t allow us to be perfect. We had an important game coming up, and all the fitness issues of players coming back from NT. We could be more comfortable today, but if it’s at the expense of the Shakhtar game, would it be really worth it?

Risks vs rewards you know. It’s fine that you disagree, I can see where youre coming from.

Gags better defensively, what did he offer us today defensively??
I said Vecino is worse, but both are trash. What would you have Inzaghi do, you're not offering up any solutions? Did Inzaghi instruct Vidal to get an early yellow and Dzeko to dribble in a dangerous area?

We played a great game for 70 minutes, how about we celebrate that?

It's vidal! Lol you know what you are getting. You cant play both vidal and gags. It should have been one of them and Sensi.

No, we can't. We've played well so many other games and threw it away. We've lost more points this season from winning positions that we did likely all of last season. Inzaghi needs to learn. He nearly threw away a buetiful 70 mins

I also think that his subs were poor. He took out Correa for Dzeko, as the former wes very dangerous in the free space left by Napoli's defense. Basically, he created the 3rd goal alone. Dzeko just dropped deeper, and thus we invited Napoli in our half. He also didn't have the lungs to put some pressure on Napoli's players. Vidal was a bad choice as well. Gagliardini was the last nail in our coffin. He might be good defensively, but with him and VIdal we totally lost any control in the midfield, gifting the ball to the opposition almost immediately. Pero was a bit shaky, but was much solid than Dimarco. The only good thing done by Inzaghi is that he didn't sub Dumbfires for Damrian because that would have cost us the game.
Otherwise, I really like the way how we are playing. Many people are complaining that we are not good under pressure, but i have the opposite opinion. We move very well the ball and very often we are able to break the high press, and to create a good counter-attack. We are also better in creating of chances than Conte's team was. Inzaghi only needs to find a way how to close the matches in last 10-20 minutes.

Inzaghi's game management is at fucking terrible levels. He was known in Lazio for not being able to close the games and nothing has obviously changed.

However this victory was fucking HUGE. Big boost to the morale as we hadn't won top7 (from last season) so far. Now we did against capolista. Scored 3 goals against them while they had conceded 4 goals for the whole season before this match.

We really matched Napoli's ball possession and that was clearly our way of beating them. Problem was when the gas ran out of our tank and we started taking important players out. Like Lautaro, Barella and Calhanoglu. Our possession play died completely and it was just survival.

Inzaghi needs to find medicine for this. Same happened against Milan. We cannot continue like that, it will bite us in the ass eventually. Today we were really saved by some miracle (Rui and Mertens chances). He needs to start using Sensi or something if he wants to take Calhanoglu out etc

Of course it was unfortunate he didn't have bench for strikers, only unfit Dzeko and primavera Satriano. But still, we need to start handling these games better and that's Inzaghi's job to figure it out.

I think ideally Vidal comes on for Hakan around the 70th minute mark, then G5 in the 90th minute for Barella. But Barella has been terrible for weeks now (partially blame for Napoli goal) he desperately needs a or two game off. Vecino should only be used when we need a goal. Forget Sensi, we haven't been able to count on him since 2019.

I don't understand Dzeko's role, he is indeed playing too deep, getting too involved in the defensive phase, recovering balls and initiating attacks. If that's an instruction from Inzaghi then he's an idiot.

But ultimately our bench is poor. 90% of the available options are high risk, more likely to cause problems than provide solutions. Even Napoli had a better options.

I feel like he needs someone to second guess him. His substitutions tendencies are too generic.

We're indeed lucky in this match, Osimhen's accident, Handa's save and Mertens's last chance. There's shade of Milian - Lazio last season. I'm surprised that we play well after international break, we're usually worse than this. Actually we wasted many chance before Lautaro's goal that could call the match off before 60".

All subs are necessary because some of players are out of battery in my opinion but wrong ones and timing. For this match it's better to make sub around 70" or 75", we were leading by 2 goals, Napoli could create and chance and very disorganised after half time. Minimise time for them to have 1 goal or bury them with another goal around this window is crucial.

His first round getting Correa and Hakan out for Vidal and Dzeko, I think, is wrong because Barella goes to left wing and he's dead tired at this point, Napoli leaves whole center and their left side, only attack on right side where Perisic, Bastoni couldn't cover them well tonight. So both subs become useless to get back possession.

Next round both teams make change at same time. Inzaghi fixes mistake from last sub by Dimacro for Barella, Gag for Lautaro, all making sense for play out but not in because of Gag, he doesn't patch our left wing well together with Perisic who is out so late. Napoli continue committing to their way by adding fresh legs Elmas and more centralised Mertens than Insigne. It helps because our defenders and midfielders are gravitated into middle, even Darmian hence most of Napoli chances coming from the field Darmian leaving behind.

I rather keep Hakan and replace Barella with Vidal or even Sensi to keep possession or even Dumbo for Perisic to end all their attacks, they don't have Osimhen for fuck sake, even Rano can handle Petagna. 3 points are 3 points but if this theme continues, we should prepare for Pazza Inter all season.

Calhanoglu sub was because of his yellow card. Inzaghi said this himself, said he would have never taken Calha out otherwise.

IMO this was a retarded reasoning for the sub, Calhanoglu gives us ball possession ability which is crucial in these type of matches. Pretty sure the players know how the handle the game when they are on yellow.

Inzaghi always sub players with a yellow card, pretty retarded imo. Trust your players, they are not kids anymore. We completely gave it away after his subs yesterday so that is something worth watch back and review himself.

If we had Inzaghi during the 19/20 season, Barella would have been on the pitch for about 20 minutes for the whole season with that reasoning :lol:

Strange thing to me is that he went defensive early when taking off barella/Lautaro and after we conceded he threw in satriano for Ivan which seemed weird.
Would have hoped for the earlier sub to be the more offensive one and not the later one.
Was also strange to throw in satirano with 2 mins to go when you need to defend a one goal lead especially when perisic is better at holding the ball and at defending.

And when dzeko probably had fkn concussion. I thought for sure that's who the sub was for

He didnt go defensive. Those subs were fitness related. Perisic Dzeko were our striker duo after Lautaro was out.

Then you can see Perisic signaling for a sub when Dzeko was receiving treatment for the head collision. So yet another fitness related sub.

Such is life after NT break.

I think Perisic was singaling sub for Dzeko because it was his second head hit in his short time on the pitch.

Perisic was taken out because he was tired and probably starts against Shakhtar which is more important game (according to Inzaghi the man himself).

It didnt work, Mertens missed a sitter, the game ended 3-3.
