Yesterday, against the Gobbi, We played EXACTLY the same formation as Mancini strongest Inter less than 2 years ago. Of course Mancini might have chossen Muntari instead of Vieira as well, but he didn't have him.

So all them oney invested in Mourinho project just so that Mourinho would find out that Mancinis' formation is the best one?

One must say that even with a given formation, one can play somewhat differently.

And you wonder why Johan ignores you.

he does have a point though. Jose banged on about 433, bought in his 2 wide players and then had revert back to our mancio system.

oh yea.. Coaches are for formations only. :howler:

I actually appreciate Mourinho's Trial and Error process... from 433 to 424 ro 4312.

He adjusts till he gets there.

He is still yet to play 4231...... or from a back 3.

yep that is why i didnt say i agree with him, only he has a point. I like that jose realised that 433 didnt work and went back to a system that suits us, rather than playing mancini and quaresma in his more prefered 433 even though they are clearly not in sync with the team, yet. If he can make the 433 work great, if not stick to this formation which has been good for us

Some people say 433 doesnt suit Italian Football.

Arent Lazio playing that. They are Fine.

Amantino is Serie A proven. He is adapting. Quaresma, understandably is one that either you hit it off Straight away or it takes a bit of time. Formations had been tried to accomodate those 2., they have yet to repond well.

So its bench time till familarize.

That being said, JM too, is adapting.

You have so many shit comments in this forum, together with good replies, so you better respond in a reasonable way instead of wasting our time reading your comments.

I know a coach was brought in just for the formation, as I even mentioned

But Mourinho still caused Inter to invest a lot of money to suit his 4-3-3 system and didn't invest in a attacking midlefield, for example, so my point stands. "Mourinho project" is not just the coach itself, but all the other changes he brought as well.

JM said it in the interviews right?

He likes a system with wingers, but they aren't playing well. So he needed another system and as the team is used to 4312 it's the best decision.

It won us the match yesterday. JM has the balls to change his players and tactics when things aren't going well. Mancini would've probably stayed with the same players & system even when things would go bad.

THAT is why we changed Mancini to Mourinho.

Mancini was a very pure 4-4-2 coach in Lazio and Fiorentina(Also Lester).
When he arrived at Inter, he also pushed clearly to the 4-4-2.
It was him than in summer 2006 opted to the successful 4-3-1-2, putting Maicon as a RB while switching the eternal defender Capitano Zanetti to the midfield.
So Mancini did switch the system and even with 4-4-2 he played with plain 4-4-2 and with a diamond one.

Mourinho is a better coach than Mancini, but he also was given much more money to invest; money which seems very unwise nowadays. Mancini has never received as much money.

You say it yourself Mourinho is a better coach than Mancini. That's why we changed coaches during the summer.

Who cares with which tactic or how much money he can spend.

Exactly.

So what, because Mourinho decided to start off with his own 4-3-3, he can't change it just because the 4-3-1-2 all of the sudden belongs to Mancini?
So he should rather badly persist with a 4-3-3 than move to a more suitable 4-3-1-2 simply because the sacked coach used that formation?

The thing is that Mourinho was very arrogant and didn't make HW. Mourinho was so stick to the 4-3-3, so called without looking at Inters' current material, but rather opted to spend so much money, instead of adapting the play to the current material and invest the money smarter(attacking midlefielder).

He was like "I don't care what Inter has and how it's working in Serie A, as I'm going to play my 4-3-3 and Italy won't change my ideas!".

Maybe it's too early, but buying players in 45M and then not using them is a terrible move in every sense; imagine such move in a club where there is no Moratti or Abramovic but a club who is running based on his own income. In Gazzetta they calculated that Mourinho got in one summer more than Mancini got in 4 summers together(they included Martins' sale and Mourinhos' salary).

When Mourinho sticks to Mancinis' formation, cutting off the players he brought, it's like admitting a mistake. In a regular normal club it's a terrible mistake as it costs huge amount of money.

In my opinion, Mourinho is a better coach but Moratti never gave Mancini the same financial support.

How about this:-

Just because two coaches use the formation with more or less the same players doesn't mean it's the same system. The formation is not the be-all and end-all. Different tactics can be employed within the same formation and of course coaches will differ in man-management skills. They may also have completely different training philosophies too which impact on how the game is played.

And yet, you make a completely half-witted post saying it's exactly the same system as Mancini.

And somehow, I'm supposed to respond "responsibly" when you post like a clueless simpleton.

That means Ibrahimovic, Vieira, Stankovic, Adriano, ACesar, Mihajlovic were ALL FREE...?

Never mind, even Choutos gets a salary

Quit exaggerating. Mourinho spoilt your day... ? Goooooooood !

Yesterday the strongest team of Milan beat the weakest team of Turin. Hopefully today the strongest team of Turin will now beat the weakest team of Milan.

That will be a weekend not to forget quickly for Inter 'Fan' 07

Firdaus, you are weak in English? You wrote what I have already written and you make it look as if it's something else.

A10, Stankovic and Adriano was brough in in Zacs' era. But why should I expect an Inter fan to know such details? A10 is better in writing pointless posts. And yes, Sinisa and Cezar were practically in free.

G. Facchetti, no doubt about that.

All this doesn't contradict my point that Mourinho probably made a terrible mistake in his market management. Most coaches in the world don't have such freedom to make such mistakes. If Inter was bound to real economical management, ie running the club from the profits, such thing would have cost dearly.
Mancini wasn't given so much money, not to mention in one summer.

InterFan7, isn't it time to start worrying about Torino? In stead of talking about Mourinho, you should first take on the problems in your own squad...
