‘Alarm Bell’s’ Should Go Off At Inter After Lazio Fixture

After yesterday’s 0-0 draw against Lazio, Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport analysed the game and draw their own conclusions.

The Milano based newspaper reports that “the alarm bells are ringing at Inter after the clash against Lazio because it became more than obviuos that Lazio had more alternatives on their bench compared to the Spalletti’s squad. And the Biancocelesti from Rome are in fact one of Inter’s biggest competitors for the Uefa Champions League spot. When evaluating the substitutions from yesterday you find that Simone Inzaghi, during a key moment in the game, could put on three good players, first Lukaku then Anderson and finally Nani. For Inter, the only response to Inzaghi’s substitution was Joao Mario, Dalbert and Brozovic where at least Dalbert gave some encouraging signals in terms of approach and athletic condition. A striking difference between the two teams also from the starting players where the good feet and quick minds of Milinkovic and Luis Alberto do not have any counterparts in Inter.”

    On paper Lukaku, Anderson and Nani. is below par, compare to Joao Mario, Dalbert and Brozovic.
    If we’re talking about mercato, you wouldnt trade the last three to the first mentioned.
    But on the field, the three showed another evidence. Sad.

    couthino goes to barca for 150 mill ???

    HEY AUSILIO, WAKE UP, HE IS BETTER THAN PJACA !!!

    “Luka Menalo Amazing Goal vs Wales U21” — paste this in youtube and tell me
    if you like it… ;-)) just watch that technique and feeling for
    ball… very rare, reminds me of di maria…
    he is 21, a goalscorer and the best player in very tough bosnian league with lots of dangerous
    tackles… young luka modrić also was the best player in the same league, for one season after which he went back to zagreb (he was loaned from dinamo-zagreb to zrinjski), years ago. he always claimed that it made him strong and greatly helped him mature and harden in duels.

    The truth is Lazio have been bouilding a team for years now, focusing on the same type of players. Players with speed and tecnich, not unlike what Roma has been looking after too. But at Inter we´re really in year Zero with Sabatini and Spalletti new on board.
    I´m sure Saba and Ausilio will work something out, sell a couple of players that Mancini who was much more defensive mined wanted, and in this transfer window and the next ones will work on getting us players with tecnich and speed, like Spalla always has prefered.

      hasn’t it been year zero for inter the last 6 years now ?

      • casperv

        Maybe. But now the club is being runner well from the top and down, for the first time since Moratti left…

        • FcInterNj89

          Don’t feed the trolls

        • I Miss Marco Branca too

          it might have something to do with Moratti leaving !

      So far, so good under Spalletti. He’s done a good job with very little at his disposal. As for Sabatini & Ausilio they need to work extra hard and bring quality players. Pastore, Acerbi, Cristante & Barella would be good signings for Inter and in Suning policy of bringing in Italian players. A post Handanovic era would be well filled by Mattia Perin.
      Pazza Inter
      Forza Inter

        Agree we have just started this journey with Sabatini and Spall Spalletti together and that’s why I call this year, our true year zero, and next year with cl football could be our first year one after 2010 because that year could be very important when signing quality players.
        I’d want quality plus players with experience to come in.
        Happy new to you

        Wait until the 7th consecutive defeat.

    Well, I think it would be a great idea to bring in Milinkovic-Savic and start using two (creative) midfielders behind Mauro Icardi so they can create more scoring opportunities over the ground instead of all those crosses that rarely lead to scoring opportunities. In my humble opinion at this moment the best formation to use is 4-3-2-1 instead of 4-2-3-1

    Handanovic

    Cancello, Miranda, Skriniar, Dalbert

    Mario Vecino Perisic

    Valero Brozovic

    Icardi

    • casperv

      We haven’t got the 100 mil for Milinkovic-Savic….

      • I Miss Marco Branca too

        even if you did, throwing money away to fix a psychological problem will never resolve it anyways !

        • casperv

          What do you mean? Inter have never had plus 40 points before the ‘turn’ of the tournament before, or not since 2009/2010 that is

          • I Miss Marco Branca too

            1 goal in the last 6 games…..1 point the last 4 games……a wel known history of this team choking mid-december all through january……these aren’t psychological problems ?

          • casperv

            We choked with Mancini but another squad and coach back then. Plus now we only have the league to focus on. Spalla knows what he’s doing only ‘let’s buy another player and then yet another one if that one doesn’t work out, and then change tactics constantly – Mancini’.

          • I Miss Marco Branca too

            you choked in january with Strama, Mazzarri, Ranieri, mancini……Gasperini got canned before January, Benitez quote before January, FDB got canned before January and Pioli choked for 2 months after taking charge……is that not enough evidence that the problems of Inter are psychological ??

          • Aaron

            Lol u talk about psychology at inter..what’s up with juve? Whenever teams get to a final vs them they already can lift the trophy…weak minded flat track bullies.

          • I Miss Marco Branca too

            last i recall inter has lifted how many trophies the last 6 years ? and in those 6 years how many trophies did Juve lift ? i think before talking about lifting trophies you may want to break the streak of 6 years of NOTHING FOR INTER !!

          I get it you find this funny, overstating the implications of a certain moment in time. I am glad you find or get energy from some places, and I will give you that you can say some funny things, for an old lady that is… Be aware that being the one that try to play with the emotions of people, for the fun of it – your words are telling of a potential inner problem in yourself. And well, as a sport where mind games is socially accepted in some way, I can understand some of the intent of it… But please, hide you self contradicting words a little better…. it would make the challenge of disproving your words inside myself a little more effective, actually making your rivals believing your words… if you did not get the message between my lines; in some cases, a player brought in can be the one that inspire the rest to get the job done… anyhow, if your words came from integrity you should point to certain data or proven words to add to your words and never use never, always and obvious overstated, impossible or words of no certain definition…. hope this can help you to challenge your rivals in words/mind games that actually can be believable..

          • I Miss Marco Branca too

            a player brought in can be the one that inspire the rest to get the job done…LMFAO care to explain the following: Vidic? Perreira ? Gargano ? medel ? Kondogbia ? Gabi-one-gol ?? Jonathan ? Kuzmanovic…..Joao Mario ? Brozovic? Podolski ? i will tell you that these are reasons why inter have finished 6th 9th 5th 8th 4th 7th the last 6 years !!

      almire,
      inter nema kulturu njegovanja tečne i raznovrsne igre za koju su obavezna ne jedan nego dva kreativna igrača kojima nije strano niti učešće u o brani ( kao rakitić i modrić, npr.) . inter uvijek traži trkače bez mašte i super tehnike, kao što je onaj tupson iz zvijezde bio i slični.
