‘Inter Milan’

2010-11 Recap After the euphoria of the previous season’s treble, the Nerazzurri had to settle for just the Coppa Italia last term as their cross city rivals AC Milan were crowned kings of Italy. Following in the footsteps of Jose Mourinho was never going to be easy but when President Massimo Morratti appointed former Liverpool tactician Rafael Benitez to take over from the self titled “Special One”, even the most fervent fan of the Milan giants must have feared the [...]

Cliché’s are, well, clichéd, and even that might be a cliché. They stand as the writing equivalent of using training wheels, working well enough to “fall back on” and “get the job done” but preventing any sort of creativity from shining through along the way. Football is full of such terms, and the 24th Supercoppa Italiana helped to reinforce some of the most popular ones. Football is a game of two halves One only need ask Gian Piero Gasperini. In [...]

Down goes Thiago Motta but check out the special event jersey. At least Inter fans in the Far East were given something to remember their heroes by as it was not the final scoreline that caused them to jump for joy. Hopefully for Nerazzurri tifosi this image won’t mirror the Italian Serie A season ahead. Inter dominated the first 45 minutes with the opening goal coming from their capable playmaker Wesley Sneijder at the Bird’s Nest in Beijing. Sneijder is [...]

The Serie A season begins in a little over three weeks, yet the curtain raiser for Italy’s top flight takes place this Saturday.  While Inter have been a constant in the Supercoppa over the last six years, this year’s matchup holds special significance.  Not only is it once again being held in Beijing’s historic Bird’s Nest Stadium, Inter’s opponents are city rivals and last season’s Scudetto holders, AC Milan. Unfortunately for the Nerazzurri, the last seven days leading up to [...]

The new season is still a month away yet Inter are already feeling the wrath of the injury bug.  This past weekend saw two of the Nerazzurri goalkeepers go down with freak injuries. Emiliano Viviano tore his ACL in his left knee during training on Saturday, while sliding to reach a ball in a practice match.  There was no one around him at that moment and the moment the tear happened, it was apparent it was very serious.  Viviano underwent [...]

Inter’s preseason is well underway, with three friendlies and three wins under their belt. Ritiro in the idyllic setting of Pinzolo has come and gone and after ten days, the squad has returned to Milan with training to resume at Appiano Gentile. While the pitch and training grounds have been quite busy with double training sessions and matches, they are not the only place seeing action.  Late last week, news started circulating that the FIGC were not going to revoke [...]

The last seven days for Inter were supposed to be a dawning of a new season.  A new coach was officially presented on Tuesday, a new player welcomed on Thursday, the new shirt unveiled Friday.  Unfortunately, all the good news this week has been overshadowed by the news that was announced last Monday. But let us start with the positives. Tuesday brought forth Gian Piero Gasperini’s first press conference as Inter manager, where he was asked about his formations, players [...]

Truth in football is dead. The internet killed it. Well, perhaps maybe not dead. But “truth” as it was once known is seemingly disappearing. It should be a rather simple, black-and-white concept: X is true, therefore Y isn’t. Circumstances can change but what is simply is, simply should be. However, this week in football saw quite a few challenges to such a rigid definition. Take, for example, the case of Erik Lamela. The Argentine is hotly sought at in the [...]

As the official start of another transfer window draws near (for those unaware, in Italy it doesn’t officially until July 1) the time has come to examine Inter’s summer 2011 calciomercato. The first and most important move of the close season has been announcing Gian Piero Gasperini as the new head coach.  With a manager now in place, the club can now concentrate on making moves that will strengthen the squad to compete in both the domestic and European fronts [...]

Signed, sealed and delivered it may have been, but Bologna’s bid for Emiliano Viviano was fatally flawed. Stefano Pedrelli - the Rossoblu General Director - contrived to make a mess of his club’s blind bid, allowing Inter to claim the Azzurri stopper as their own despite tabling an inferior offer. But while the formalities are complete, the ripples from Pedrelli’s mistake will be felt across the peninsula as Viviano at the Giuseppe Meazza raises more questions than it answers. Had [...]
