So I watched their EL match, and I get that it was their B team and all that, but seriously what a disaster.

Let's begin with the kit. Seriously what the hell? Who designed that? Who approved it? My eyes still hurt and it's been hours already.

The defence looked quite shaky, specially down the right side. Ranocchia was mostly good on his tackles but had severe concentration lapses, leaving rival players completely unmarked in dangerous moments, and also evidenced a very serious lack of speed whenever challenged by Hapoel's strikers. His attempts to initiate build-up plays with forward passes were hit and miss, he really has trouble adjusting accuracy and power correctly, most of the time either he passes accurately but without enough power to truly make a difference (the through pass is too slow and the opposition has time to react) or he applies enough power but then misses the pass. D'Ambrosio displayed a very offensive role and consequently was caught out of position many many times, but even when properly defending he coordinated poorly with the rest of the backline and I think at least twice he was caught totally off guard and it would have been a lot of trouble if not for some timely help from Biabiany (out of all people). Murillo and Nagatomo fared much better defensively but at the same time provided little attacking effort.

The mid was terrible for the whole first half, Medel and Melo were equally ineffective at creating any kind of offensive play and Brozovic looked lost on the left side, plus also quite awful with his first touches. Melo was specially terrible throughout the whole match, save for one or two decent aerial passes in the first half he was probably the worst player on the pitch. Banega improved things in the second half but looked very, very alone until Palacio and Eder (to a lesser extent) started dropping to the mid and giving some help. You can't really ask Medel much more than what he does because he's a very limited specialist, but I'd expect much more from someone like Melo.

The attacking trio were more enthusiastic than effective. They weren't specially bad though, and with a bit more luck things could have turned out very differently (Eder's shot at the wood). Palacio provided a few classy sparks although he looks quite spent physically, specially compared to the last time I had seen him play (it's been at least two years). I liked Eder although his decision making was a bit poor (looking at the sets I would have expected a wider gap in ATT between Palacio and him). Biabiany... well he's fast, and it's undeniable he put effort, but he looks quite limited as a whole, considering what Inter has on the team I don't expect to see him much more throughout te season. Finally Candreva offered some needed drive and determination, but was quite ineffective to say the least.

Honestly I hope they fare better next time I watch them, because that was quite a poor performance. The israeli team were winners with absolute justice, and it was a pity that scooping shot near the end from the right SB hit the wood, it would have been an excellent goal.

Just finished watching the Juve match. This one was quite a different tale. Completely dominated Juve for the whole match, the win was well deserved. Allegri must be one of the most mediocre coaches I've ever seen, he's been so so lucky to be given such chances at top teams. Very good performances from Icardi and Banega specially, and the defence looked quite solid unlike against Hapoel, I guess Morinda in for Ranocchia did make a difference. Also gotta say, I've been pleasantly surprised so far by Murillo as well.

Tomorrow I'll drop some more specific ideas and suggestions in the players' threads.

They are better under De Boer but.. they are still with so many problems. They used to have extreme problems with isolating the attackers and being unable to link the mid and attackers to each other. Now they don't have that problem in the same way, they are too focused on the wings, they can get the ball to the sides and go forward through that way but they are very limited in their options from their, they stuggle to go backwards to go into the mid when they go to the sides, the movement is poor for recyling possesion, they get locked on the sides and are forced to shitty attacks or completly losing all momentum and starting all over again in the same way. The focus on the wings is also betting heavily on a largely lazy and physically underwhelming CF to get on the end of a cross. They are better than they were, but still poor.

Yes, great analysis. I add also the embarrassing level of the reserves.. now the starting 11 isn't bad, nothing extraordinary but on the level to fight for the third place at least.

De Boer has completely lost the squad, the yesterday first half was absolutely shocking.. the players don't know what they have to do on the pitch, it's time for a change because with this situation they are not able to do one single point more, the relegation zone isn't far.
The sidebacks were shit as always.. Nagatomo abused by Drame for 90 minutes and the mistake of Santon on the penalty, stupid as fuck. When Kondogbia entered the situation went worse than before. He is the worst CM i've ever seen, don't stop a ball.. when try to run he seems disable, really i'm not joking. Has TS 84 but never shows this and probably Ment value has to go down. Murillo sadly is another Juan Jesus.

Honestly he lost 7/14 games.. already 5 defeats in Serie A, don't know but it's maybe the worst starts of the season ever for the club. I was with him but after the game vs Roma away i understood that he is tactical inadapt, barycenter of the squad so high when all knows that Roma play with long ball on Salah. Almost all the players have argued with him and no one give anything on the pitch, create empathy is important for a coach equally with the tactical things.
Suning has to put a "strong man" deputized to follow the team near, not from Nanchino. The actually management is totally shit, no one know nothing about football and Zanetti is only a poster boy, and we know that he never was a real leader in the dressroom but only a silent and technical leader. Definitevely Suning wants a things, the italian management another one, Thohir another one and even Moratti still another one. There is a confusion that i've never seen before and this has repercussions on the squad, no one do his job well.

Worst defensive phase i've never seen against Napoli. Those players are so stupid if we speaking about football.
Handanovic always less agile, Miranda seems a former player sadly, Ansaldi ridicoulos he simply can't defend, Kondogbia worst signing in our history 40 M for a player that can't do anything shit in all aspects, Banega another shit signing in the passive phase he is non existant .. you play with 10 man with him, Joao Mario 45M for an only one good game since now, the wingers are medium players.. Candreva does a lot but fails a lot and Perisic only runs but with poor Quality, Icardi away is shit despite in the home games he looks very good player. And Gabigol?? 30M for a player thats seems not able to play one single minute is simply ridicoulos.
Terrible situation.

Inter is terrible, fullbacks are so players of the past, no qualities of the modern fullbacks. I disagree bout Miranda, just think that when you play with Murillo or Ranocchia, you are basically playing alone. When we come to te midfielders, we have loads of playmakers, offensive players and Kondodgbia, who is an undefined object. Brozović, Banega, Joao Mario, they all want the ball, there's no real teamwork in the middle, can't really understand and see what is the tactical purpose of any of them, what they are supposed to do. Then we come to Icardi, who's really good finisher, but also not very interested in bringing others into play and doing anything else but shooting. Perišić is a limited but quality player, who can pefrorm really good in well organised side, but he's not the guy who will dribble past 2 defenders and score. Candreva has a big quality in his long range shoots, so basically he can score sometimes even though the team is playing like shit, if you give him just a bit of space, he can score the screamer, bu also, there's no real connection between wingers and fullbacks, the whole offensive influence of D'Ambrosio and Ansaldi are early crosses. Terrible team, awfuly assembled, there are quality players, but there's just a 1 normal CB, no real quality on the fullback positions, too many playmakers in the middle.....Inter is just a pure mess at the moment.

The team is amblessed really bad, good point Relja. Our management is the worst that i've ever seen, know nothing about football..just buy players randomly and not for a true tactical reason. Why Joao Mario when we need badly a top DMF? Banega why? And also another shit fullback signed as every year. Yes the defense situation is a joke, this team needs 8 new defenders .. i don't save not even Miranda.
Honestly i don't like the attack also, no one has the magical touch as we always got in our history except those last 5 years of shit

This was the first full inter match I've seen in a few weeks and just upon looking at the formation, I could tell how this would play out and where the battles would be lost.

First off, you can fault Ranochia for the second goal, as usual he runs to the mid, doesn't get the ball cause out of position and through ball is played into the backline and its a goal, it was his fault, but also Kondogbias, but it was great football on Napolis part. I wouldn't blame inters back line for this loss, they didn't stand a chance right from the start and overall there wasn't much they could do. Everything comes from the horrendous line up of a 2 man mid of Kondogbia/Brozovic. Anyone should know playing a double pivot of two box to box players who are both naive and inexperienced is asking for trouble, this was an absolute disaster though, worse than even expected. Brozovic is taleneted, but lacks experience and hasn't really found his role yet, hes undisciplined. He plays a box to box and a half distributor, but he isn't solid at either one yet, really talented as I said, but atm hes shaky due to this and his defensive shortcomings. Through out the game I would see him close to banegas position hounding the backline after a goal kick, hes supposed to be holding the mid, but hes pressing by himself (uselessly) at the opposition box. Thus his mid position is completely free and Kondogbia is left by himself to hold the mid. It's these little things that add up to making him a shaky and unreliable defensive player, this can be circumvented somewhat through numbers and giving him a midfield which gives him freedom by covering for him. But instead, he was slotted in the mid with Kondogbia as his defensive partner.

Now onto Kondogbia...
Kondogbia is a a box to box. He is not a defensive midfielder. Why is he being deployed as one? He couldn't look more out of place. He is a player with good strength and speed and surprisingly tight and accurate dribbling. When he isn't burdened with holding the mid, he can be a luxury defender, this takes advantage of his physical prowess and compensates for his lack of defensive awareness. If the mid has structure and is being held by a real DM then he can contribute with his speed and power without having to worry as much about leaving his position. At sevilla he was paired with Medel and Rakitic, those are two workhorses that do more than their share of defensive duties. To go from being a box to box who would supplement the defense at Sevilla to the holding mid in a 4/2/1/3 with a physically underwhelming and defensively average player like Brozovic, is it any wonder hes been terrible? Yeah, his defensive ability has been close to abysmal, he doesn't understand where hes supposed to be, how or when hes supposed to press and fails to recognize opposition opportunities and looks lack luster all round. But it doesn't end there, his movement when his team is on the ball is clueless, he moves poorly and leaves brozovic on his own, so brozovic can't keep possession through the mid and needs to play diagonally out to the wings over and over again. This in itself is a complete game changer, you can't have that sort of structual weakness in a 2 man mid. This fundamental flaw in inters mid dictated their play for the first 75 mins. His passing seems to be extremely shy and unconfident too, making his ability to keep possession even when he has the ball far below par. Everytime he gets on the ball you can see hes thinking about going on a run, this is what he does, hes a dribbler and a box to box power house. He was all round, just awful. But what do they expect? Put him in a mid where he has freedom to play offensively and contribute as he sees fit and you can expect a diffent player.Putting him into a completly differnt role and making him the leading defensive man in the mid is not going to bring out good results, pairing him with another poor defensive player....


This midfield was the reason for the absolute disaster. There was no midfield, napoli played through it the entire match like it was non-existant. You can not put that much blame on a backline who has no midfield in front off them, they didn't have a chance from the beginning. Due to Kondogbias role as a pivot, and inability to function as such lead to unsustainable possession in inters mids, brozovic being forced to play wide over and over which seemed to lead to completely rushed offensse. I don't know if this was Piolis instructions or the team felt rushed due to the inability to maintain possession through the mid, but damned near everytime they got the ball it was just go, go, go! Dribbling forward, passing forward, moving the ball to the opposite end as fast as possible, resulting in next to nothing. I can not stand to watch inter play like this, there is nothing wrong with taking time to build up the attack, breaking it down and starting over. I could talk at arms length about what was wrong with the team, but ultimately, it all comes down to the terrible mid pairing of kondogbia/brozovic, the mid is the engine, if the midfield has flaws then the entire team is going to suffer because of it. At the 75th minitue when Kondogbia came off for Mario, inters attack completly changed. Now they had 2 decent movers in the mid in brozo/mario who can both pass, they could find each other and this lead to inters possession being much more fluid and less rushed. Obviously a mid pairing of brozo/mario is defensively weak, but at least you could see the offensive difference it made when you have two players in the mid who can find each other/pass.

What can be done with inters mid to give them real stucture? They are in an awkward position at the moment really. They could have a pretty decent midfield, but it will be far from ideal. Medel is really the only good defensive option they have, but he is very aggressive and a real hounder, often leaving position to chase and with a less than secure defensive pairing, this can lead to some serious trouble. For maintaining possession and movement, he is far better than Kondogbia, but he is very, very far from ideal. Ultimately I feel their only real option is a mid three with Medel holding with any selection of Joao Mario/Banega/brozovic. They need to fucntion as a unit and cover for each other. On paper it can work, but will be far from ideal until they get a DM who is confident maintain possession and distribution. Personaly, I think Pioli should at least experiment with the tried and tested 4/4/2 diaomond. It would have to sacrifice both Candreva and Perisic, but it would allow their mid players who are all lacking in some fundamental areas, more freedom and room for error and would ensure better possession play and put an end to the non stop crossing to try and find a 5 10 striker who isn't physicaly imposing, not to mention the isolated and stunted wing play... I'm sick of watching them run down the wing into a wall and lose possesion, or run down and whip it in to no one.

They needed Joao Mario and Banega. Yes they need a top DMF, but they really needed capable passers to link up the mid too. Brozovic was not ready, and is still naive.
I think Joao was a fantastic buy as was Banega, but they are both being hurt by poor tactics and lack of structure...give them what they need and they will shine.

I think the same, have to try 4-4-2 diamond to give any sense to the team.. but the fullbacks are important for that tactic, definitevely every tactic has a gaps considering the roster. Also the second strikers are unable to score or even play.. don't know i don't blame the coach, is impossibile to put a team with sense at the moment with this squad tbh.

on the players: Ranocchia is incredible that is still in the roster and continues to do disasters since 5 years, Kondogbia is shit sorry isn't a tactic problem he has posture problems, he hasn't the right part of the body practically..fast? i don't think so, looks so damn slow this year..you see the run behind Hamsik or before Bonaventura? simply ridicolous. Brozovic the only i like atm, Joao Mario seems useless and Banega even damaging for the team.

Don't be fooled with Piolis 4 wins in a row, it wasn't down to some rebirth of inter or anything of the like. Individual performances saving them and good luck. Not really any better than under De boer, still suffering from a myraid of problems.


What really bothers me about this inter is this hodge podge of playing styles and no clear direction. You have so many unique, very tactics relient players that are suited to specific styles of football all thrown in togther, it makes such disjointed and awkward football.


1. Icardi. Classic poacher, with none of the physicality. Hes best suited to a team that creates havoc for the opposistion, lots of play in final third, lots of shots, defenders getting draged out of position. In that sort of enviroment icardi will thrive, his movement is deadly and he'll pick up chances left and right.

2. Perisic: Plays like your classic winger, gets the ball goes down the wing, whips in a cross to the target man.

3. Candreva: Limited cross-merchant, always looking to cross into the box at any time.

4. Banega. Brilliant trequartista relient upon his team-mates movement and being able to feed him the ball.

5. Joao-Mario, dynamic and extremly tidy possession orienated player, he can do basically anything, but hes very suited to that quick back and forth football.

6. Kondogbia, donkey of a player, suited to surging runs through the mid and bullying people off the ball, playing holding mid.

7. De Ambrosiso/Ansaldi ???? Supposed to be defensively secure sb's with little offensive contribution, that can help shore up the defense, but because of the limited offensiveness, you really want players like this only if your offense is immenese already, which inters fucking isnt.



So you have, Small stature poacher whos reliant on strong offense from his team, instead he gets a team with terrible movement and wingers going down the by line and whipping it in 24/7, or at least trying to, barely anything going in from the middle, very little over-lapping runs or anything of the like from the wingers/sb's, very stunted offense and wasted possesion. Perisic and candreva don't have sb's to work with because they are both so useless offensively, so even if they wanted to play in a more fluid attacking sense, they have little to work with since their sb's can't work with them. Banega needs the mid to be able to bring him the ball, but because of Kondogbias inability to move for possession football and the sb's being dumb, his play is stunted. He often needs to drop to opposition half to build up the play himself, but thats taking away the whole point of him being deployed behind the strikers, his role is ruined. He also needs good offensive movement from his team for creating danger with his passing, he doesn't get that, still makes good opportunity from what little he has. Joao-Brozo, need a dm and sb/wingers that can work with them, instead they get kondogbia failing to move into position, forcing them outwide, and ansaldi or Perisic/candreva throwing possession away, brilliant. It's a fucking mess.

What is the point of having a brilliant trequartista if you can't give him the ball, and he has no one good to put through on goal? What is the point of Having great possession players like Joao/Brozo when the useless wingers isolate them and just run the ball into the wing? WTF is the point of having a poacher, when you can't create chances for him to poach? Having these awful offense SB's with these, gotta whip the ball in quick wingers, is such a waste of brozo/joao and as long as this contrasting styles are in the starting line up, don't expect much from inter. Let's say, they get Roberto Gagliardini and he becomes the solution in the mid, now joao and brozo can keep play going fluidly and are no longer pigeon holed into the wing time and time again, you still have these senseless wingers giving away the possession everytime they build it up, that has to stop for fucksake. They could do decently even if their wingers insist on playing like that, but all the same problems will keep arising and for a team wanting to get back to the top that is a very hard obstacle to climb, serie a is pretty weak though so they could pull it off, though it'd be unlikely. How they are playing atm, they aren't far away from another humiliating string of loses and another fired coach. Things could change with a real DMF, that would really make an immense difference, some capable side backs and it might even be a good team. Pioli offers nothing better than anyone of the other clueless managers before him, he just has the luck of better players and poor opposition performances.

@jurgens simply the roster was build bad as every year.. no one of coaches can put a formation with sense because with that roster will be always incomplete roles.. with all the tactics that exist and Gagliardini is not the solution imho, i don't see him as DMF but he can learn we hope.

They played a three man mid vs chievo, it was kinda unusal, not really double pivots with gag/kon, something more akin to 3 box to box with kondogbia being the closet to a holder, but not really having any holding duties, he was free mostly. I've been thinking inter should play with a dmf holder who can distubute with any 2 of kon/brozo/joao, i think that is the ideal. But gag is much more akin to a box to box himself, a defensive minded one, but one nonethless. So they were playing basically with 3 b2b type players instead, that can work, surely the offensive transition will be great with it, but its questionable defensively... they were only playing vs chievo last match after. But the important thing is that they played a 3 man, and especially give kondogbia the freedom to do what he did today. Now they have a real problem with who they play in the mid.. 2 or 3 posistions for kondogbia/joao/gag/brozo/banega. Interesting to see how things go from here.

With the 3 in the mid, they absolutely dominated possesion, first time in forever where they actually had good movement all round in possesion.... the differce that makes. Perisic was nowhere near as selfish as last week too. Though I still see him and candreva as weak points, candreva/perisic..... would like to see them benched and eder/gabi played as ss. Not gonna happen though.
