Bad mentality and a bunch of bad players. I really think we need to cross of Rodriguez and Kessie, both are simply too lacking to be considered as starters or quality players. Then there is Donnarumma who never shines in such occasions but survives mostly... And of course Suso who was a bit better in the second half with Conti there to help, but he's still miles away from being useful at this moment.

Both strikers were pretty much inefficient. As was Kessie and Rodriguez, terrible game by both.

Strange move making Kessie a FB...

Penalty kick, great...

We're not ready yet.

Ready for what? And when will be ready? In 2022?

Rino needs to shake up the team quickly.

Martial will be staying at Man Utd, that ship has sailed. Carrasco and Depay... hmh. Good but...

Icardi? Who knows what mental state he is in... I'm not sure if it's better for us that he's unavailable or playing to be honest.

Also, you talk about next year needing to rebuild the midfield. What about Bonaventura? Bench player? It's a open question for me IMO. Kessie, Hakan and Bona are all alike - good but not good enough. So maybe I'd sacrifice one of them and sell him for the right prize to get a quality winger we so dearly need.

What makes you so sure Juve were "completely" against selling him? Because of some old Juventini geezers like Di Livio who said Caldara is a top talent and Juve future? I think they were just playing hardball and wanted to raise Caldara's prize.

With Silva we knew it all along. His fantastic score for Portugal masked the fact that he scored mostly against the likes of Andorra and Hungary.

We'll see about Caldara. Sure, one nice season with Atalanta. But now with this long injury and with the pressure at Milan and much higher stakes, we'll see what he can manage... I don't have high hopes, but maybe he'll surprise.

One season cannot make him a pretender for the Azzuri spot. We've seen countless times that good or even great individuals simply do not work in a CB pairing. And there's that injury that's been dragging for months. So there are more then a few question marks regarding Caldara. Maybe he'll turn into a good purchase, but so far this cannot be said.

And the hype was specifically boosted by ex-Juventini players who immensely rated Caldara as a big defender just because he played one season good at Atalanta. That's also fishy for me...

You make it sound like Caldara has been a huge success for us thus far.

Yeah really, that Caldara hype isn't really getting to me...

Awful match, good result. I hope Rino actually sees the problems we inflict ourselves.

And sorry X-O, but Han is completely right. Suso just checked off right now. Samu is the better pick until Suso regains form or whatever he needs when he reaches his second part of the season slumber party.

Good one Han (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Inter lost to Cagliari last night. Hopefully we show character and seal the win tonight.

Yes I am, and let me think.... The last decade or so fits that bill, only we weren't even getting half decent results then, which we are now.

You know, you can criticize Rino as much as you'd like but facts are facts, we're in 4th after 20 games played all while having some serious injury issues and a relatively small squad especially in terms of quality off the bench which is pretty much non-existent

Add to that he had to deal with his marquee player being mentally checked out since November

All in all, he's done a damn fine job if you ask me. What do you guys really expect? That's we'd be on par with Napoli? We knew the problems we had going into the season. The only real disappointment so far was the EL exit, but in the long run it could prove helpful for us

As for the football in general, I think we've played much worse stuff under Allegri, Montella and Pippo. We still manage to create nice plays in the majority of the games but generally lack the quality on the final ball. hat being said, Rino might not have made us beautiful to watch, but he's definitely made us difficult to beat, if Leonardo and Maldini can give him the 2 players we need in the attack that can give us that extra spark and added quality than the nice looking football will follow from there

On another note, I'm really impressed with Paqueta, this kid approaches the game with such style and quality, I'm really looking forward to seeing more of him

Perhaps. I do understand that the situation Rino got himself into isn't easy to deal with. But we had injury crisis like this under Allegri as well. Only our expectations were higher, and granted, our team better. Yet who said anything about being on pair with Napoli? But we are unable to be on pair with Lazio or Roma as well.

Yes, results are momentarily good. But we had a golden opportunity in December when Lazio and Roma were in crisis and Inter also started shaking to take a grittier approach and win points against the likes of Torino, Bologna, etc. But we never found an ounce of strength to show some face. Just like last season when the team simply disappeared on the first real European test against Arsenal, or like we hit numerous times self-destruct in important games - we caved. I really do not believe Rino can stir us to 4th place and the temporarily good position is just that - temporal. Soon we'll find ourselves back in 6th or 7th.


QUOTE (han2503 @ Jan 22 2019, 08:25 PM) *
With that all being said, we have a ridiculous schedule coming up, Napoli, Napoli, Roma within a span of a few days, thankfully we're recovering some of our injured players, but we might not still be in 4th after these game are played

Conti will also be a major boost for us, already 2 assists in around 120 minutes of football played since coming back

Conti has been very good I must admit, just what we needed. Hopefully he can maintain this form.

Are you watching Han? Tell me, when was the last time Milan played so dull and consistently bad football?

You know who's a player I would have gone after? Duvan Zapata. I've always liked the guy, and this season he's on a rampage. Scored 4 goals today against Frosinone.

Inter is after him... We're set to sign Piatek.

Not at all. Kessie is an outdated and limited player who would be virtually useless for any big team. He's simply too unintelligent and clumsy in the attacking phase and adds just a few good segments to the game overall. Just compare him with Bakayoko, who's far superior yet still not that great.
