What another whirlwind 24 hours in the land of Pazza Inter. In a move that shocked some but was expected by many, Claudio Ranieri was relieved of his managerial duties late Monday evening.  It was a decision that had been a long time coming and could be argued that the ax should have been dropped sooner.  While Ranieri was able to pull the Nerazzurri out of the relegation places in the first half of the season, the same blistering form […]

After the summer transfer window shut on August 31, 2011, most Interisti were relieved to see Wesley Sneijder was still an Inter Milan player.  Sneijder’s summer holiday locale of Los Angeles was fitting, as the drama surrounding him was suited for Hollywood.  Everyone needed to know if Inter’s Number 10 was staying or would soon be on his way to Manchester. It was decided that Samuel Eto’o was the one to be sold to Anzhi in Russia and Sneijder would […]

When the Champions League draw of sixteen took place nearly three months ago, Inter were deemed to have the easiest match-up of the three remaining Italian teams.  Napoli drew Chelsea, Milan had Arsenal, and Inter were facing Marseille. Both Napoli and Milan finished second in their group and the showdown between the two remaining powerhouse Premier League teams left everyone salivating.  The two Italian clubs shocked many outside of Italy, beating their opponents quite handily with 3-1 and 4-0 score […]

Eight days ago, Inter were flying high off an extraordinary run of seven straight league wins, including victories against city rivals Milan and fourth place Lazio.  The club had a midweek fixture in the Coppa Italia against Napoli, only to lose in controversial fashion once again to the Partenopei.  Surely, the Nerazzurri would be able to bounce back from the heated loss and respond in a positive manner against relegation threatened Lecce.  Lecce had not won a home game all […]

As the smoke cleared Monday morning in the city of Milan, there was no question who won the latest edition of the Derby della Madonnina the night before.  The sun shone a bit brighter and everything tasted a bit sweeter for those wearing the Nerazzurri colours.  In a hard fought battle over 90 minutes, the warriors wearing the black and blue of Milan were victorious. Inter came into the match against Milan as underdogs, as they had not beaten their […]

All eyes will be on the famed Giuseppe Meazza this weekend as Inter take on Milan in the Derby della Madonnina.  While the atmosphere of derbies in the past have been heightened by the on field personalities, the latest edition of the Milan derby will certainly be white hot due to the psychological warfare that has been waged by both clubs.  Feelings of disgruntlement and displeasure have been intensified with the ongoing Carlos Tevez transfer saga, and the fervor will […]

There is no denying that the Nerazzurri season thus far has been full of trials and tribulations, with the critics out in full force tearing into the former European and reigning World Champions at any given opportunity. Just last week, Inter were barely above the relegation zone, languishing near the bottom of the table after a defeat at home to second place Udinese.  The loss came after two consecutive wins, seemingly killing any momentum the team had hoped to garner.  […]

To say that Inter’s Champions League match Tuesday night against Ligue 1 champions Lille was a “must win” would be a massive understatement.  After a lackluster performance at the weekend that resulted in a loss to Catania, the heat was on and cranked up to the maximum temperature. Yes, one could argue the penalty given against Luca Castellazzi was a soft call and it should never have been given.  The thing is, the Inter squad that took the pitch in […]

Inter versus Napoli was supposed to be a beautiful night of football.  It was supposed to showcase two top sides in Serie A who had represented Italy proudly in Champions League midweek.  It was supposed to be a battle between two teams potentially challenging for the Scudetto.  It was supposed to be a beautiful night of football. The Nerazzurri were in the midst of finding themselves again under Claudio Ranieri and had come into this match with back to back […]

What a rollercoaster week it has been for the Nerazzurri faithful…yet again. As expected, last Wednesday brought about the official end to Gian Piero Gasperini’s reign as Inter head coach, with the damning 3-1 loss to Novara solidifying his fate. After zero wins in the first five competitive matches, a stop plug was needed to halt any more of Inter’s season running down the drain. The stop plug’s name?  Claudio Ranieri. Many have questioned the hiring of Ranieri and his […]

One point.  Zero wins.  Three matches. Welcome to the start of Inter’s 2011-12 Serie A season. What should have been an easy win in celebration of Captain Javier Zanetti’s record breaking night in the Nerazzurri shirt, turned into an embarrassing night at the hands of Serie A newcomers, Novara.  Instead of commemorating the astounding 757 times ‘Pupi’ has worn the black and blue to place him as Inter’s all-time appearance leader, the post-match chatter was filled with criticism towards Inter […]

The Serie A season is finally underway and with it comes the hopes, expectations, and dreams for all clubs in Italy’s top flight.  Everything seems a little brighter with the promises of what can happen but when everything falls apart after the first match, that light is much dimmer than before. Preseason only garnered more questions than answers in regards to Inter manager Gian Piero Gasperini’s formation and tactics, as he has been very insistent in molding the squad to […]
