I like how we kept the ball running in the end. Still the lads have to prove themselves against the big clubs. Yes Napoli taken into account though

7 wins in a row. +9 over Rube. Lads, take a bow.

Our players have earned their Christmas break for the first time in a decade. This wasn't an easy opponent, they don't concede much. Inter played well in the 2nd half. I am pleased with the performance, not just the result.

Fuck that, they would have deserved it if they made it past the CL group stage. At best they now don't deserve a whipping.

I find what Achraf is able to do with minimal supporting help from the opposite flank to be really impressive. Can only imagine what he'd be capable of for us if we had someone with better two-way quality at LWB, something that would allow for even more variability and unpredictability in both build up and transitional play. It's no surprise at all that, the more comfortable he's gotten and better he's performed, suddenly we've reeled off seven in a row domestically.

Imagine how good this club would be if it wasn't so dysfunctional on the pitch.

Chill dude. I'm happy that we are at least back on track since the CL disaster.

You kinda have a point there, but honestly, I don't get the supporters who can't seem to enjoy a win.

I'm enjoying the win, sadly I'm also still burning from the CL. That shit will burn well into next year I'm afraid.

I think, with this victory we should enjoy it and be of good cheer through the holidays. We can all start worrying again, the first of the year. I plan on a three day stint of drinking, eating and being merry. Hope you all have a great Christmas time and stay safe. FORZA INTER,

We played standardly like shit,especially first half,but we won and second half was much better. That Bbilan win kinda ruined this night for me.Hate to see that arrogant fuckers still ahead of us. Fkn Lazio. Only us can choke against them.

We improved on and executed our "first half control" much better today. That said, I don't know why we even seem so intent on this recent gameplan anyway. We seemingly refuse to play football for the first half and instead focus on just locking down a game.

It worked today, and our immediate response to conceding was excellent. It won't always go to plan though and I really don't like this tendency to waste or at best, neutralize, such large chunks of the game. Like I always say, it's like walking an hour late into a 2 hour exam. You leave yourself with such little time to perform and such little time to fix any errors should something go wrong.

One thing's for sure, it won't work against better teams. Just see our record against "big" teams this season: in 6 games against Lazio, Milan, Real Madrid x 2, Atalanta and Napoli, we have 1 win, 1 draw and 3 defeats. Utterly disgusting record. This strategy of controlling and neutralizing our opponents simply won't be enough to win the league if we can't raise our game against any team in the top 6.

Nah, I don't really concern with Milan. I am only concern with Jube.

Milan will start slowing soon, if not collapsing. They have too much young players and coach that never compete in top standings. It will get worse when the european competition start.

Hopefully Jube got eliminated in the first knock out stage so Pirlo will be sacked, if not earlier, and their morale will be even lower.

Jube lost six points and we got full 3 points. What a fuckin day!!

I don't know, whole 2020 year they were unstoppable, beat every big team in the league, never defeated, this is like a Leicester thing, plus if they bring Papu this mercato they can surely win it. We on other hand play boring one dimensional football, struggle against every team so we will surely fuck plenty games to come. So I dont know about Bbilan, they beat Lazio without their best players, they just refuse to end the streak.

Lautaro and Skriniar with some nice goals. Big confidence boost for both of them. They needed those goals especially the former. Hakimi is getting better by the game. Friggin guy looked like he could have played another 90 minutes with that run at the end of the game that should have been a goal.

Verona is a tough nut to crack. They defend very well as a squad so I’ll gladly take a rugged 3 points off of them.

Buon natale a tutti!

First half meh, second half perfect. Good defended but still created something. Wining in Verona is not easy but this are the games you need to win if we want that scudetto!


BTW Grande Milano Skriniar!

Taking account seasons from 1929/30 onwards, Inter have equalled their record goal haul in a calendar year across all competitions: 108, a tally they previously achieved in 1961 and 2007.

Because I remember a streak of 7 wins under Ranieri with more impressive performances and I remember a streak of 7 wins under Stramaccioni with more impressive performances.

Conte's run reminds me of Mancini's start into the season 2015/16 - during that time I also warned that this team will crumble.

But hey, in three weeks we will have played against Roma und Juventus. Maybe I'll change my mind about Conte after that games.
