Nerazzurri4life Dalbert has started how many games? Can't judge him fairly this way.

Tbh I would loan him in Serie A for a year. Him and Karamoh on loan for a year in Calcio then we decide whether they are kept or sold.

Did you watch the first half? We missed 2-3 chances but Dragowski made 4 world class saves as well on Perisic, Brozovic, de Vrij and Asamoah. All in the first half.

The save on de Vrij in particular was one of the best saves I recall seeing.

There are two such examples in a row about 30 seconds into this "highlight" reel.
Sure, he made some mistakes. Not nearly as often as he's done at Inter though. And he's rarely shown the sort of conviction you see in that video.

This would be the point where I list big mistakes from our full-backs but as a famous conservative once said, "when they go low, we go high".

Over the 90+ minutes Inter did more than Empoli.

It's definitely his confidence. You only see the rare glimpse of those things in the video. On most other occasions, it's as if he considers the right action then decides against it out of fear of screwing up. There's unnecessary hesitation for simple things he could do in his sleep in France. When he does take a risk, he still seems to lack conviction on many occasions.

I'm guessing that the underlying causes include communication problems.

Whatever it is, it looks like his time at Inter is over. We'll see how he does in a different set-up. Real shame.

No idea how Empoli didn't get a point. Well, OK, I do. Handa . Gargantuan Empoli misses in the 92nd and then 98th minute. Bad finishing, amazing goalkeeper and A LOT of luck.

The laws of physics were bent tonight to stop Empoli drawing.

Horrible Gobbi-esque penalty as well

I still love Inter as much as ever, and watch matches whenever it is not inconvenient. Although ive settled down since my younger days and it hurts much less when we lose, but matches like this and the lazio one from last season bring all the emotions back.

Good to see you guys are still around. I wont be posting much, so for all times sake, pazza inter amala!
How did you know I would bring this thread up?

Glad to see you post mate. Try to do so more frequently.

red Amazing how the defense completely capitulated as soon as that clown Dilberto took the field

Surely one of Sabatini's worst ever signings....

He probably halved his transfer value with that performance.

He did have a bad patch; there's no question. Saying he's finished at the time would of course be over the top though.

And he had to have known he was in a rut and he had to have been pissed about it. Why? Look at the way he snapped out of it and went not only back to his old form but maintaining a very consistent world class form. He knew the run of form was unacceptable at that time for his standards and, instead of pretending everything was okay and sweeping things under the rug, he dealt with it in the best way possible.

Handa the saviour? [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.xtratime.org/forum/images/smilies/originals/biggrin.gif[/IMG] Good that you finally see that. He was finished and Standanovic not too long ago...

Icardi has scored over 100 goals for Inter. Being a brat for a month or 2 does not erase it. Naturally if he joins juve I wish him the worst. But calling Icardi rubbish is... Rubbish. Perisic has cost 15mill, I think he produced quite well overall and for the past 3-4 seasons one of the best wide players in the league.

Spalletti, well he is no Mourinho but at least he is better than Pioli, de Boer, Strammacioni, Ranieri, Mazzarri etc..
Handa was incredible this year, no question. By far the player of the season.

As for Icardi: he and his wife coordinated attacks on the club for the sake of an extra 1 million a year. Wanda made a mockery of the club claiming Inter wanted an Icardi-Higuain swap, and she brought the dressing room dynamics on to live television. They were willing to sacrifice Inter's whole season for the sake of an extra 1 mil. Fk them.

Icardi has done this damage himself with a total lack of professionalism. I have NEVER seen a player go on strike at Inter before. Do you REALLY think he will go down as some sort of legend now after trying to sabotage the entire season?? He clearly thinks he's bigger and better than Inter. So fk him.

Perisic is similar. Has been mostly a passenger for 2 years and handed in a transfer request mid-season. Horrible behaviour.

The symbols of one of the poorest Inter eras. Thanks for your goals against Juve and BBilan but fk you for thinking you are bigger and better than Inter.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out....

Sure it wasn't the most difficult of goals but someone had to be there to score it.

Nainggolan ended the season with 6 goals and 3 assists, despite the injuries.

Think he will get a second chance with Conte as he wanted him before.

Let's see if he gets less injuries. Should rest now and try to go easy on the booze and smoking. He needs to remember that he is in his 30s and won nothing. Conte should remind him of that in case he forgot. Then he can have all the booze and cigarettes he wants post retirement.
Nope, no apology. He scored an open goal. And announced he wanted to go to Roma back in December.

6 goals and 3 assists is not much of a return for a 38 million euro attacking / two-way midfield signing who was supposed to transform Inter in the attacking 3rd.

He had a poor season, simple as that.

And players in his position do not get better with age.... I would personally sell him to China for 20 million this summer , as he will have almost no value at 32.

He still has ability and moments of quality, but he has deteriorated physically and will continue to do so.

Should definitely not be a starter next season.

red Positives:

1) A horrible season is over. One of my least favourite in recent memory and for me the most disappointing since at least Mazzarri but probably longer.... So many huge disappointments from the Bare Minimum Boys

2) Last game for Spalletti, Perisic, Icardi and surely Keita and Dalbert. I feel a bit bad for Spalletti. You could see today that he is dealing with a lot of mentally weak players. But his team was worse than last season and he has to take his share of the blame. The disgraceful run of San Siro draws were to blame in the end.

3) CL

Now time to try and forget about this clusterfk of a season as soon as possible...

You have seen worse. Not too long ago Inter finished 6th, finished 9th, 8th, 7th..in case you have forgotten.

Enjoy the moment, don't be an old whiney nagg

The thread bump proved magic.

Just like 2004, Inter make CL (and Empoli down)
Several of the Anti-Atalanta boys seemed determined to put Milan in the CL yesterday.

Icardi and Dalbert did their level-best to lose ... Keita with a 1 on 1 miss followed by a foul on a keeper 25 yards from the ball where there was an automatic Inter goal.....
