Inter - a club with big ideas but never achieves them?

Hey,

1st comment here...

Okay, on yesterday's result the title has basically gone to Juve..there's pretty much no chance of them slipping up and conceding it.

I don't think Inter will win anything in the near future. The reason why..we have big ambitions, but don't know how to achieve them.

Firstly, look at our team compared to the other giants in the European game.. Chelsea, Barcelona, Juventus, AC Milan, Man Utd + Real Madrid(this season excluded)..etc. We can't honestly compare to these teams with our own squad. If we want ot build a world class team, we need worlse class players. Signing left overs from other big teams...Figo..etc, is just not the way to go. Real madrid got rid of him because he's past his best, and Inter too need to get rid of players who are past it.

Look at our squad, and then question which players would make it into those other big teams? Sure, Adriano, maybe samuel stankovic and cambiasso(who is constantly improving), maybe martins? The rest of the side are just slightly above average players.

I think the coach has done OK with the players at his disposal, however, if next season passes without winning..or at least achieving better, it may be time to change. Trailing the league leaders by 10 points at this stage of the season is ridiculous and unacceptable.

I think also, before we want to win in europe we should at least concentrate on the SeireA title.

I say that before next season, Inter invest in some youthful hot prospect players who are willing to put in the effort and play for the club. Right now much of the team are over paid and just playing as if nothing matters. Recoba is one player that bugs me, he's paid one of the highest salaries in the game..and for what? That Inter hopes he'll one day find consistancy and play great? no chance...he's an average player that on rare occasions can perform.

Any thoughts?

Figo is no leftover. He didn't fit with Lux's 4-2-2-2 or whatever formation at Real. Now I bet Real wish they still had him. I can't believe you included Real and Man Utd as teams we should aspire to be like...

And I think you're basically just proposing that Inter do what they already did in years past and pull out the wallet and spend big money. That didn't exactly lead to trophies either.

Hey..

Figo is past his prime. There's no denying he was a great player and what not, but the fact is that he's older now. I think also, his defensive play leaves a lot to be desired.

As for the spending money side of things, I don't recommend we waste money, but rather spend it properly. Instead of getting veterans or older playrs we should get younger players with potential. I believe the scouting and those involved in researching new players within Inter could do with a change. Inter's money and transfer deals always seem to be foolish with inter getting the worst end of the deal.

As for Real and Man Utd..true at the moment they are going through poor times, but honestly I don't think we can compare to them. Performance by both over the last 5-10 years speaks for itself. League titles, cups, champions league titles.

Can we compare to that? Inter have a uefa cup and that's all worth mentioning.

No, I definitely agree. I was just pointing out that Inter used to invest in lots of younger players and the results weren't any better. Today they get most of these veterans on free transfers. In a way I can understand Moratti's thinking, since why spend all the money and not win, when he could just get pick up out of contract stars (or ex stars) and do the same thing? Cambiasso, though he isn't really one of the over-the-hill vets we're referring to, was a great free transfer pickup. If it were up to me, Tevez and Kompany would be the primary targets and half the veterans would never have been signed. But its not my money, and Moratti has already spent so much for Inter that it is hard to complain (in this one regard).

btw, welcome to the forum.
