I'm not sure about you people, but I just cannot swallow what happened last night, that is seriously the most humiliating result for a long time, im not sure, but for me that 6-0 loss to Ac Milan a few years back doesn't look much worse than this. We almost lost to a 10-Man Siena, I dunno what the hell is going on, we concede two goals from their only two fukkn shots on goal, SOMETHING HAS GOT TO BE DONE !!!!!!

I bet all you guys are going to say im over-reacting, but our form in Serie A is a real disgrace really, the thing which stings more is the fact we are crusing in the Champions League. Our #1 priority is to win the Scudetto, we were never going to win it this season, but we just cannot play like this, its a disgrace to the club,

Our defence needs urgent work, Materazzi and Cordoba have lost it, they simply aren't doing the job, and please don't mention Mihajlovic please, if you dont want to give me a friggin heart-attack then don't mention that hope-less 'Mancini spy in the locker rooms' person. It's the worst humiliation on the planet that he is even considered to be in our line-up, I dont care about his 'out-of-a-blue-moon' goal and assist, his job is to defend and he quite simply isnt doing that job well, if he had played last night/day/afternoon (i dont give a phuck when it was) we would've been phucked 5-2 not 2-2,
I dont care about Cordoba and Materazzi's service to the club in the past, they are not up to it, and FAVALLI !!!!! GEt rid of that a$$hole before i go down to Appiano Gentile and kill him myself...

THIS IS A DISGRACE TO THE CLUB !!!!!!!!!
THIS IS BAAAAAAAAAD, OUR FORM IN SERIE A IS A DISGRACE !!!

Someone cool me down please :nervous:

Its funny how you criticise Mihajlovic and the guy didnt even play against siena. The two wins in a row that you had when he played and u didnt concede any goals, people were praising him. But now you draw again and u take it out on a guy that didnt even play in the game. :rollani:

My friend my friend. Little bumps in the road such as this won't matter when we lift the Scudetto on the 29th of May of 2005. Relax, and have faith. Mancio=GOD and he will do what no man has done since 88.

It might sound as if im trying to start an argument or wat ever but that is not the case, some things i disagree on but thats just my opinion. I still wish your team the best of luck for this season and next season, what ever happens, inter is my favourite of italian teams.

Matrix is a lumbering hacker. He was a hacker even in his Perugia days. No way he should be a starter.

I have no problem with Mihajlovic.

His defensive game if more mental then physical these days, kind of reminds me of a Baresi in his latter years. Mind you he is not near as good a defender as Baresi was but he is really cutting of the angles, anticipating and and marking players like Ibrahimovic without trouble.

I really don't see why people don't like Miha. He's eared us some points, played very well and his set-pieces were a major reason Lazio won the scudetto.

If Mihajlovic/Cordoba had played today we would have won. If you watch them play, they really play well together.

The fact is that Inter have a 5 star 100million dollar attack yet a two pound defence.It will all come good when Mancio gets the men he needs. :)

Now Materazzi is bad, I remember when everyone was saying he was a great defender at the begining of the year, Yesterday Cordoba saved a goal in the line, but noone is saying that, Cordoba slip in the first goal but it wasnt like he got beaten like Matrix, then he came and safe what was a sure goal for Siena, Taddei missed a goal like 2 meters in front of the goal line, and Siena players could Run lik 30 meters in the flank with no opposition when we were attacking and this has repeated itself a lot this year, it´s just ridiculous to blame the players when Teams like Siena and Parma have worst defenders yet we are not able to beat them.

Ok, to get some things straight about Miha:

Mihajlovic is slow. He is old. He is not a natural defender, he was moulded into one by Sven Goran Erickson. The only reason he CAN play defense is because of his amazing technique and the fact that he has size.

When he played for Red Star Belgrade and won the EC (now called CL) in '91 with them, he was nicknamed "Barbika" or barbie doll because of his long blond hair and lightening speed down the left flank. He could run, and boy was he fast (hard to believe now) and was an attacker. He could shoot set pieces but nowhere as well as he did later in Italy; he learned his craft there.

When he came to Italy, he played in Roma, Sampdoria I think, played left wing again, did well, scored a few off set pieces etc... But already then, he was getting slower. He is a big guy and the first thing that goes for a big guy is leg speed.

At Lazio, he came already made as a player: great long ball, pass, technique, set pieces. So Erikson says: phuck this I have better, faster guys in attack, this guy is big, lets try him at Centre Back. Then he suddenly realises that Miha can hit a man at 30 meteres no problem and with one pass start offense, one long ball skip the whole midfield, with one corner or set piece win a game. Phuck Erickson says, I'm a genious; Lazio becomes a set piece specialist team, Miha has two unbelievable seasons and Lazio wins the scudetto.

So, my question is: What do ya all think Mancini thinks about his ex team mate's ability.? He knows he's old, he knows he's slow as shiite, he knows he can get by there at the back just on his technical ability. And he knows that his transfer to Inter was bound to be seen as 'bringing his old mate along'. But he brought him anyway.

IMO, Mancini made the mistake that, while he knew Miha could help him out 'when needed' (especially his offense, FK's etc...) and that's why he called him, he didn't expect that Inter's defense would prove to be so inferior to the other Seria A teams and that he would have to now rely on Mihajlovic.

Now its quite appearant (and to Mancini himself) that until the risk/reward situation improves with NOT having Miha in defense, you just have to play the guy, because you have no other players that are better then him! He is your best alternative. Materazzi is woeful, Miha has game. Simple.

Until you find someone who can defend and that can bring more to your game then Miha does, until Miha is finally over the hill, then you can all start rubbishing him.

That day has not come yet my friends. :nono:

Savršeno! Ni sam ne bih umeo bolje! :thmbup: :cool: :tongue:

And I'd like to add this: why do you think Mihajlović was paired with Cordoba, the fastest defender in Serie A? So that Cordoba can compensate Miha's lack of pace.

Mihajlović has positioning, anticipation, pass, vision and can command the defence. Other Inter defenders lack at least one of those traits.

Of course, only an absolute moron who does not understand football can't see that Mihajlovic should play with Cordoba. They work well together because of the things you said above. As a top-class footballer, you either have game or you don't. Miha has it. He's proved it, he's played top-class for 15 years. He's slow, but he compensates it with his natural gift - technical ability. He has presence, vision. What the phuck do Materazzi, et al... have in comparison.??

And Inter will start winning because he is going to be playing from now on.

Do u really believe you can be Seria A contenders with Burdisso, Cordoba, Matrix and Miha as your centre-backs? The best out of that four is Cordoba and he's not even close to world class, just a hardworker with no brains....

You make it sound like Lazio's scudetto was due only to Mihajlovic when, in reality, Lazio bankrupted themselves buying an incredible lineup for that season. Plus, Mihajlovic had Nesta beside him to clean up all his mistakes. Inter's problem is that they have no Nesta.

I still think Materazzi and Cordoba should be the central duo, with a tough DM in front of them. It's not that Cambiasso isn't looking good, but he seems to spend a lot of time attacking.

Good points made by both JV and Lightoller, some of you Inter fans are really harsh on him.
By the JV it was at Samp that Miha started playing centre back, he may not be the fastest but he is so cool on the ball, he will never play a long ball without thought, it will always be an accurate one. He will play himself out of a poor situation and wil try to relieve the defence of pressure by keeping possession. His sense of positioning is good as is his reading and well how many assists has he got so far in the games that he has played?

Yes I do make it sound like that because that's the way it was. Not only but a very, very big part. I suggest you look at that Lazio's seasons goals and see how many goals came off Miha's assists and/or goals and then we can talk. So I'm talking about Miha's long ball player free, one pass - Goal; long ball and goal, corner and goal, set piece near goal header & goal, FK and goal.

Don't believe me, have a look and then we can talk, you'll be amazed as I was.

Listen, for once I believe that splashing money at our defensive problems and a little use of brains should solve this bloody problem.

We have to use buying-power the same way we used it for our midfield and it has payed off with Inter Milan having arguably one of the best midfields in Europe. We have to go crazy buying players for our defensive problem, we can't sit back for someone to improve, or for someone to pop out of one of our youth teams.

Looking back at it, imagine if our phukkn management wasn't so stupid, we had a REAL chance at Alessandro Nesta, we had a real chance at Lucio, and then we go and sell Cannavaro.

:wallbang:

Btw...what you guys think of Burdisso, whats going on with him anyway?

Our midfield is extremely overrated in my opinion. VDM is an asset who shines once every three games and he can't play defense. Stankovic is an overrated man who only gets into the first team b/c of his name and connections to Mancini. He scores once every ten games and ppl think he's God. He also doesn't play defense. Cristiano Zanetti is a good ball winner but he fouls too much and he hardly ever makes a good pass or initiates any offense. Cambiasso is the one underrated player on our team. Davids is a good palyer, but he is only a shadow of his old self in his ballwinning abilities, and his tendency to runn with teh ball hampers our style of offensive play. Emre is an overrated man who tends to get fouled a lot. He has good defense, and he makes good passes, but he is too inconsistent in my opinion. Though I would say he's the best midfielder behind Cambiasso. Veron is too slow and he is just a name now, even his passing is a little crazy.

And there you have it. Inter's midfield of shit.
