Terrible first half from both teams. The intensity is lower than a preseason friendly.

A cheap penalty indeed.

Not a great deal else to say about that half. Although it was good to see that we were rarely threatened in the last 30 mins.

IMO it's a penalty, moretti's hand prevented a goalscoring opportunity.

Sh*te performance so far

And the suicidal tendencies of January/February have re-surfaced at the perfect time...

Torino should be able to win this now and put any talk of CL qualification to bed once and for all

Brozovic with another mindboggingly poor performance.

I think it would be unfair to single out Brozovic when Nagatomo and Miranda completely sabotage the entire match with pointless, idiotic fouls

Brozovic was garbage even when it was 11 vs 11. I don't see it as unfair.

Bro is one of the players that can't be part of a starting 11 next season. I'd consider keeping him as a squad player, maybe. There are a few other players (like Nagatomo and Melo) who we need to get rid of more urgently.

You form these mad opinions about players that bear very little relation to their actual performance levels, i.e. everyone knows Brozovic has been one of the best performers this season, which isn't really saying much, but singling him out for criticism, when the likes of Nagatomo and Melo have been consistently awful and regularly sabotaged entire matches with their antics, is really quite odd

Anyway, we can finally now start focusing completely on next season

I was personally amazed that CL talk persisted right up until tonight, but that's over and done with now

The main barrier to a successful season next time around is clearly Mancini, whose man-management has become so staggeringly bad it is destroying the team

This should be the last season at Inter for Mancini, Santon and nagatomo.

Massive collapse, Mancini simply can not control his players or fix mistakes. Dropping points at home against clubs with lesser financial capabilities...

Ljajic and Santon to blame for first goal. 2 players were very lazy and failed to match molinaro's run.

When did I single him out? It's not as if I wrote a lengthy summary of the match detailing every single player's performance.

I wrote a oneliner during the match regarding Brozovic's poor outing. That's it.

As for Brozovic being one of Inter's best players this season I'll just admit that he had a short stint where he scored a few nice goals. His overall game has been piss poor for the most part though. It's like he's trying to break Guarin's record of losing possession.
