    can anybody got a link or something to tell Mr. Thohir that rano don’t deserved to be captain and need to be sold.

  • urosgr

    guys i have waited five years and then we won 4 scudetto’s in a row and next the year cl. i hope that thohir really has long term abitious plans with inter. never give up! Forza nerazzurri!

    • interd1sia

      lucky you just have to wait for five

  • urosgr

    im really interested in our first team against udine. will hernanes be back? d’ambrosio?

    • kuda

      Our lord jhonny reported might be back. So prepare yourself! Hahaha
      But hernanes should be available.

      • interd1sia

        i would rather have jonny boy back at that right back role. the very least, i can see him doing his infamous body-sliding tackle and being entertained if we failed to win

        • kuda

          Hahahaha

  • Pick

    did you guys saw m vila after sub. my god …

    • urosgr

      angry

      • Pick

        He slammed his hand into the cabin very angry

        • Solberg – Norway

          Its just competitiveness. I personaly love that in a player. With that kind of motivation and soon to be better form and som weight loss, i think he will be a beast

    • kuda

      He subbed because his knee got problem again

      • Pick

        are you sure???

        • kuda

          Im not hehe, just read an article from internews.it about that.

          • Pick

            he was angry like he can break someone on his knee

    • Dani Milekić

      Hope he won’t cause problems, I really have high hopes for him…

      • urosgr

        me too

  • kuda

    I really feel bad for mancio for coaching this team

  • urosgr

    it’ll be way better when mancini finds his first Xl and when players get use to his system. but we still desperately need lb rb and cam, maybe one more striker palacio type

    • interd1sia

      rudi already said the reasons why he let go of dodo, and tonight he exploited it and show us on field why he let go of him. if only someone can provide him more cover and let him doing his attacking thing as maicon-zanetti case several years ago then we won’t really need an lb

      but for other position, fingers cross

      • The Zlatan

        Difference is Zanetti and Maicon could deliver a cross/pass. Having Dodo do that you can be sure the keeper would open his arms and the ball would fall straight into his gloves..

        • interd1sia

          don’t let him cross from deep. it was obvious he can’t cross. let him do his things. dribbling, going forward, take the ball to the byline and took a low cross to the center of the penalty. he is better at that

          • dudd

            Maybe play him more forward???
            Let’s say a 4-3-3 formation with Dodo-Icardi-Osvaldo???
            And JJ LB

  • Pick

    hey it was romaaa scudeto candidates we just changed the coach

    • urosgr

      true

    • frigo

      Nobody said that we must beat them on their own ground. Be we have to point the mistakes and tell each other things that we didn’t like. Do you like Ranocchia, Campagnaro or Guarin performances tonight? Do you like how we’ve played first half defending deep in our half with 11 players behind the ball and kicking it as far, as possible?

      • kuda

        Mm i think that is tactic of mancini in the first place, moving the ball fast vertically. And giving the ball as fast as possible to the box.

        • frigo

          I think that’s good tactic agains fast and dangerous Roma attacking players. But in that case you have to be prepared and knowing how to counter them, i did not see it tonight. If you’ll use that kind of Mourinho’s parking the bus, then put JJ as a left fullback and you’ll need speedy attacking players we dont have.

      • Pick

        we have players that we have and i cant say that they did not give they best but roma are superior team and that is it

  • Ehsan

    Lets hope the January market would shake the team well

    • kuda

      I am too afraid to hope. :l

    • Zoki

      Don’t get your hopes up 🙂

  • urosgr

    roma lost 7-1 from bayern. don’t wish to play in champions league yet

    • Ehsan

      What a good point really

      • urosgr

        with that kind of team i don’t wanna see inter in cl. not yet

    • kuda

      It doesnt matter. The most important thing is we get capital for entering CL haha

  • interfansince98

    On another note when our defenders have the ball and trying to play out of the defense our midfielders need to get open and support them so they can have someone to pass the ball to

    • kuda

      That’s it, otherwise the defenders will give the ball cheaply ro opponent. Problem is inter off-ball movement is extremely poor. Always look tired

      • interfansince98

        Exactly our midfielders aren’t mobile so that’s why we look so poor in possession despite being one of the teams with the most average possession in Italy

  • kuda

    Guys. We are playing against the strongest attack in the league. Even the best defenders in the world cant stop rapid fast attack of roma without strong and compact defense. Our defense system is just not perfect yet, the players leave too much holes everywhere.
    But i dont know why we are ALWAYS tired?
    But i cant argue guarin is so shit

    • interd1sia

      no defenders can stop fast attack. but strong organized defense can. for me, the problem is not really on the defenders. but the midfield was too easy to go through leaving the defense totally exposed. and another note, we all know how roma had fast attack while we had slow defence, so why did we played a rather high defensive line?

      • kuda

        I think tactically we have done right. Our offside trap working well. Only the players cant interpreted it well and too tired to move their ass off…

        • #4

          disagree. we take too much time for closing roma’s player movement. we must press high. the way I see it, our defender often wait until our opponent get into our defensive zone then they react. we need to close their movement fast.

          • interd1sia

            they are not a pacey defenders. if they lost even just a step, then the attacker will face the keeper directly. this team never comfortable playing a high defensive line. it’s better to slow the game and force them to play our pace instead of we playing their’s

          • dudd

            We need a 4-3-3 formation. And when playing teams like Roma, JJ LB and Vidic CB. High pressure and slow speed. And of course Guarin out of the stadium.

          • #4

            exactly. well at least they need to close it with 2 players so they cant go into our box easily

  • interd1sia

    same old story. again and again and again. the coach is not the biggest fucking problem around. but the players are. no matter who the coach is, no matter what the formation is. the players on that field made ridiculous mistakes over and over and over again

    • kuda

      Mentality. Mediocre.

  • InterFin

    My god I miss Zanetti.

    • 1908

      And cambiasso

  • frigo

    We’ve played brave second half, this is the attitude that i wanna see, not thinking how not to lose. Mancini delayed with the substitutions, have to take the risk earlier. Another disappointing performance from Guarin, we have to sell this guy as possible, as can. Capmpagnaro is not good as a central defender, and wors as a full back. Too many mistakes especially in defense, poor game for Juan. Now Roma is better team than us, have to admit that. We can’t now pay money they spend 15 millions for Naingolan, 20 for Strootman, 15 for Iturbe etc. We need to find two quality players this winter one creative midfielder and one wing.

    • kuda

      nainggolan is literally EVERYWHERE. Meanwhile taider………………..

      • dudd

        What a loss…..
        Roma didn’t pay too much to get him.
        He is a hell of a player!!!

  • urosgr

    no coach can get 3rd place with that kind of players

    • john smith

      Our squad is fine, we just need to change some of the players for better/more motivated players. We have a slightly lower average market value than Napoli, and way higher than teams like Fiorentina, Genoa and Sampdoria which are all ahead of us on the table.

      • Zoki

        You can stop looking at market values and look at the players. Holebas is worth 2 million and destroyed us in that solo goal. Ljalič is worth less than Guarin or Ranocchia but did much more.

  • kuda

    We are the lpsing side from the beginning. Our only chances to win is either by luck and determination. We have luck twice, but HAVE NO DETERMINATION AT ALL.

  • TQ

    Someone call ausilio and tell him that ranocchia and guarin needs to be sold!!!! THEY ARE NOT INTER MATERIAL!!!

    FFS!!

  • INTer

    even we lose still overall a good match for us.

  • urosgr

    they look tired from the 1st minute

  • kuda

    IT HAPPENS AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

  • urosgr

    rannochia on the bench.buy cb rb lb cam

        Nah, not GK :).

          hahahah of course not i just continue to order

          • Zoki

            Hehe I know, I was joking, but I mean that I wouldn’t mind good reinforcements on any other position than GK. Either for quality or for depth of the squad.

          • Pick

            especially after this game

  • 1908

    We we scored twice, with WM we would been raped without condoms lol

    • Pick

      exactly

  • john smith

    After watching Ranocchia completely fail as a defender for the millionth time. I have to say, it’s time to not only strip him of the captaincy, but to start looking to offload him, Inter can get a good price for him, he’s overrated.

    He fails as a defender, he doesn’t have a winning mentality, he doesn’t have leadership skills…. I’m tired of hearing him TALK about trying hard and then always watching him fail as a defender and launch useless long balls forward…

    Juan Jesus would be a much better captain. He clearly has a winning mentality and he’s mature. Ranocchia and Guarin need to be sold, we can get good money for them. Neither is essential to the team, Ranocchia had promise as a youngster, when he had that defensive partnership with Bonucci. But clearly Bonucci was the strong link in that chain. Ranocchia was given the captaincy because he showed promise but we have to face facts, he’s just not that good. He’s slow, he’s poor technically, and even his defending is subpar for a club of Inter’s stature.

    I’ll say it again, offload Guarin and Ranocchia before their price drops significantly.

    • Dani Milekić

      Quality comment.

    • Phi Einstein

      Juan Jesus really angry at Rano for Chelovas goal. Strip Rano out of captaincy!!

    • Zoki

      I didn’t agree when they chose Rano for captain and here we have it, what I was predicting. He is not fit to captain the team, not mentally and especially not as a player.

      • john smith

        Exactly, hell he’s 26… The only players that should be captains at age 26 are the best of the best, and those who command respect in the locker room, Ranocchia is neither of those things.

        • Zoki

          I would have given the armband to Handanovič when Zanetti and Cambiasso left. An experienced player? Yes. One of the best at Inter and has been there more than 2 seasons? Check.

          • #4

            you get my vote

    • The Zlatan

      Couldn’t agree more, i am absolutely clueless of how people on this site can say he’s doing a good job or he played well against Roma. His marking and decision making is horrendous, i know Vidic has cost us some goals, but he is experienced and fit well into the 4 man defense. Rano fits better in Bari..

      • InterFin

        I’ve been defending Rano because I thought he’s done a good job in most of the games. But he is slow and inconsistent. JJ to me isn’t any better. He is like soldier without football IQ but he has time on his side. Rano doesn’t.
        Maybe it’s time to give Vidic and Andreolli a chance. I have high hopes for D’ambrosio as a right back when he gets fit.

        • The Zlatan

          Obviously, unless we want to continue having a disastrous defense. Today 3 out of the four man defense had no idea what they were doing, the only one with potential is JJ and he had a bad game too.

      • interfansince98

        Vidic and Juan might be better just simply because Vidic is a more experienced defender and a more natural leader

    • interfansince98

      Too inconsistent to be our captain and it’s time we start to drop these players who are not good enough to be consistently starting such as Dodo, Palacio, Ranocchia and Kuz

      • john smith

        Dodo is fine he’s young and has been playing well for the most part, he’s also versatile, he has the dribbling ability to play on the wing as well.

        Kuzmanovic has been playing well this season I would keep him, he’s become a solid midfielder.

        Ranocchia and Palacio need to go, Ranocchia should be sold and Palacio’s contract will expire soon anyway, no need to sell him unless we can get a quality replacement up front since we only have 5 players that are natural forwards and two of them is are Primavera players.

        • interfansince98

          How many crosses does Dodo get off during a game? how many times does he actually dribble past players. Yes he is young and yes he will make mistakes but he should not be starting especially in Serie A

          • Pick

            then start i dont know carizzo at LB

          • john smith

            Dodo is better than any of the full backs we have when they were his age. Nagatomo gets off about 5 crosses per game but they’re never accurate, Dodo has much more precision with his crossing. He dribbles past players plenty, he does make mistakes because he’s young but so do Kovacic and Icardi. Dodo should be purchased after his loan deal expires.

          • interfansince98

            I am not saying we should not keep him or that he should not play what i am saying is he does not deserve to be our starting left back

        • frigo

          Kuzmanovic never gonna turn in a solid midfielder, believe me. He’s a decent player and can be useful for some midtable team, but he’s not useful for us.

        • The Zlatan

          On regards to Dodo i agree with @interfansince98, i don’t know about him. He is not a left back but he’s not a left midfielder neither. He can’t defend but he can’t cross neither so what do we make of him?

    • ErollG

      Official : Inter new scapegoat is Ranocchia 😡

    • dudd

      Of course Vidic should be a starter on this formation. And like bonucci he can upgrade Ranocchia or JJ.
      What do u say about a 4-3-3 formation with
      d ambrosio-vidic-ranocchia-jj
      medel(mvilla)-kovacic(kuzmanovic)-hernanes(guarin sold to another team)
      osvaldo(bonazzoli)-icardi(osvaldo)-dodo(palacio)
      ???????????????????????????????

  • Recoba – Inter

    too much defense mancini and where’s Handanovic and palacio today and our big weakness point ranocchia and campagnaro they were totally lost on the field i think inter was playing 2 players less today

    • Oliver

      what happen to d’ambrosio man i didnt see him.

      • urosgr

        injured

      • kuda

        Not fit yet

    • Dani Milekić

      Can’t really blame Campagnaro. RB is not his natural position, we are short on players lately.

      • Recoba – Inter

        we are short of players since we depended on half player they can’t play 2 games on a row without an injury we have to get rid of these biscuits dwarfs (jonathan and nagatomo) with true players like Maicon u saw him today was injured but played the game to the fullist

      • frigo

        Give one reason why Campagnaro had to play tonight instead of Mbaye?

        • Dani Milekić

          Because Ljajic would destroy him. Mbaye is a RB but he isn’t good enough; Even Campagnaro can do his job better.

          • frigo

            Campagnaro was ridiculous tonight and we lose, what any worse can happen to Mbaye? Campagnaro is at the end of his career and at least at the end of the season will be out of Inter. On the other hand, Mbaye is 19 and promising, he needs that kind of games to grow. Doesn’t have to mention that Mbaye is way faster than Campagnaro.

    • Zoki

      How is this Handanovič’s fault? Hahahahah, you make me laugh.

    • john smith

      It’s not Handanovic’s fault that Ranocchia can’t tackle or mark players, and Guarin thinks he’s Messi.

      • Recoba – Inter

        i didn’t say it was his fault i just say he wasn’t that amazing Handanovic we used to see in the last matches that’s all

        • Zoki

          Man, Neuer wouldn’t save us if our defenders give them such opportunities.

        • john smith

          I didn’t mean to sound like I was attacking you if I came across like that. I was just saying that Handanovic could have only done so much today, the main fault belongs with our defense.

  • InterFin

    Defense sucks. That’s about it. JJ, Rano, Campa. We need W.Samuel alike!! Gotta hand it to Roma though. They have a really good team. I know I’ve been defending Rano but today… blaah. And Guarin is so useless!!!

    • kuda

      Even samuel cant stop it man. Our defense is so fucking weak.

      • InterFin

        Vidic should be given a chance now that we are using 4-backline. I’m starting to question Rano’s capabilities. Maybe I saw something what Mazzarri saw in him.. I don’t know. We need better defenders.. so pissed right now

    • interfansince98

      Actually it was all Dodo’s fault to many times Roma got past him and left our defense exposed because then JJ had to come back and cover

      • InterFin

        And JJ is a soldier without any real intelligence. He’s trying and running and tackling but that’s about it. So where does that leave us.

        • Zoki

          Atleast he has dedication, winning mentality, actually gives a crap. Ranocchia is without intelligence to, but can’t even do running and tackling.

          • InterFin

            Still definitely not a captain material. At least not yet.

          • Zoki

            I know defenders develop later but man, Ranocchia has had enough time to develop both mentally and as a defender. I would be glad if we managed to offload him for a nice sum. And I never agreed with him being a captain. He gave 0 reasons for deserving a captain’s armband.

          • InterFin

            You might be right. I always just wished that Rano could have fulfilled his potential. Fabian Schär would be solid addition btw.

          • #4

            another reason why we keep questioning about WM decisions

        • interfansince98

          Ranocchia is too slow to play in our defense he would do well in Juventus’ defense because he would not be exposed as much

  • CN69

    im so moments i wish me cambiasso and samuel back! players who know how to defend, players who are leaders and has charakter the full 90 minutes! ranocchia is a shame! i cant repeat it enough!
    name me a slowier player than crapnocchia! CANT STAND THIS GUY AND THE WHOLE DEFEND

    • Dani Milekić

      Not a captain material,lacks leadership. In a club like Inter Ranocchia should be a substitute defender not a team captain.

    • Pick

      imagine samuel vs totti not to mention ljajic gervinho he is fast as mancini walking down the stairs

  • Oliver

    thanks to lord guarin

    • Pick

      it was faul

  • Ehsan

    What the heck is going on?!

  • Gure

    Dodo and JJ not doing right guarin shitty player

    • dudd

      I have said, Dodo has defending problems. When playing with teams like Roma, JJ must play LB and Vidic CB. Guarin is by far the worst Inter player. He keeps the ball to much, giving the opposition some time to defend better, then loses the ball and we get counter attacked… Shit

  • The Zlatan

    Rannocchia is apparently hungry since he left to get lunch on the third goal…

  • CN69

    slow slowler ranocchia
    crap crapper ranocchia
    shit shitter ranocchia
    cant stand this guy!!!

    • kuda

      All of inter players are in slow motion. ALWAYS

  • frigo

    Dodo can’t defend at all, Roma made around 15 attacks trough his area, but he needs more help from the others. Good game for now for the captain after some terrible preferences. The result is positive, but i don’t like this kind of attitude and mindset to defend deep in your half with 11 players behind the ball and always kicking the ball forward, like relegation team.

  • urosgr

    this is crazy man

  • urosgr

    rannochia ”Il capitano” has withdrawn my statement.
    luckily 🙂

  • kuda

    Why didnt anybody say anything about captain’s goal and brilliant tackle to gervinho? 😀

    • Dani Milekić

      He is incredibly inconsistent but when he plays good, he plays GOOD.

      • The Zlatan

        Well he scored a goal but besides that he is utterly useless. Nowhere near neither ball or man on their goal and same thing again on the offside goal. He only looks at the ball and not to check if any attackers need marking. Should be first one out the door this transfer window.

        • Dani Milekić

          Holebas just murdered him, you might be right.

    • urosgr

      he plays real good today. let’s hope he’ll also prove himself in 2nd half

  • kuda

    We are less organized compare to mazzarri’s inter because the lad still need time to adapt to mancini’s formation. But we seem gain more luck with Mancini I dont know why. This is the match where we wont have any shot on goal with mazzarri. But we scored a goal with a corner. Strange haha. I dont see gung ho in this match either in inter or roma… strange match
    I hope kova on for mvila. He just let the player gone pass him -_-

    • Dani Milekić

      Do you actually believe that Kovacic can defend better than M’Vila? 🙂

      • kuda

        Well yeaa for the sake of more amusement on the field hehe
        Roma is not playing as fast as usual, kova might bring something entertaining to our midfiled.

  • Pick

    we are warriors

  • INTer

    beware on the left side dodo and jj got crush by maicon and gervinho. overall the team patience paid off. waiting for amazing 2nd half.

  • Oneal Barkho

    Sub Dodo with D’ Ambrosio

  • FCINTER

    Palacio is the one i would have subbed for the second half. He lost nearly all of his touches to the defenders. But come to think of that, I don’t want to see icardi just standing on the field, so keeping palacio might not be a bad idea. Osvaldo is doing fine.

    • Pick

      rodrigo is doing so much defensive dutys

    • CN69

      better than the tree icardi!
      sub yann mvila. we are playing with 10 whit him in the squad

      • Dani Milekić

        M’Vila keeps his ground well, give him a chance.

        • CN69

          not really. he dont get any ball. not more than 5 contacts in first half.

          • Dani Milekić

            Hard to stop a Roma counter-attack and we don’t have a better holder in the subs.

  • Branavan

    Lets get real guys. Roma are way better than us. Chances are we are going to loose…its too easy for them to open our defense…sad as it is

    • Dani Milekić

      Not really, we are very solid actually. Our offside trap is working well and our players are far more physical than Roma’s. They have the technique on their side though…

    • CN69

      barca lose against eibar and as we know barca is better team!
      believe in your club! football is all about passion and great emotions!

      • Branavan

        I want to have faith but one has to be a realist. Roma’s players are better in pretty much every department. Technical teams destroy us cuz half he time we run around clueless chucking balls up the field…

  • CN69

    sry to say this but im absolutely behind mancinis decision! no one should have a safe start position. if icardi might he is untouchable, he will always be clumsy! mancini always said everyone should feel like part of this team! FORZA MANCINI!

    • CN69

      p.s. Roma has an great anthem! great song and the whole stadium sing it! this is why i love calcio in good and bad times!

  • Eric91

    easy guys.. kovacic got a little bit of knock on his toe during the practice.. Mancini said that during the press confrence..

  • Dani Milekić

    Stable link anyone?

  • Ehsan

    Kova on the bench is a little bit strange, Anyway Forza Inter

  • frigo

    Campagnado??? Ranocchia, after terable performance against Milan? Where the hell is Kovacic? Why Mancini decided to play without real finisher like Icardi? If we will play with idea to not lose i don’t like this at all.

    • Pick

      because of cheese

    • urosgr

      campagnaro will play rb today instead of nagatomo who has a injured shoulder. idk why he still insist with rannochia though

      • Pick

        because he would score

          yes i just said that he has luckily withdrawn my statement 😉

  • TQ

    why kovacic is not in line up??

    • urosgr

      kovacic keeps the ball too long in the midlle. like mancini said he need to get used to play with less touches

  • Ridwan

    Where’s Kovacic?

  • Jose Mourinho

    medel mvilla kuzmanovic … hmmmm mancini want to draw and he will play for counter attack and try to get a narrow win

    • urosgr

      i think we’ll change it to 4-3-3 sometime during 2nd half
