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.  [...]

Inter Milan took a toothless Fiorentina side apart on Saturday night to claim three valuable points that see them move up to 11th in Serie A. Missing the likes of Javier Zanetti, Dejan Stankovic, Diego Forlan and Wesley Sneijder through injury and suspension, Claudio Ranieri had to shuffle his pack. Maicon, Yuto Nagatomo and Lucio came into the backline while Philippe Coutinho replaced Ricky Alvarez on the left flank. The Jovetic and Montolivo-less Viola, meanwhile, handed Adem Ljajic a rare [...]

Internazionale take on Genoa tomorrow evening looking to gain a crucial win in their quest for European qualification. The match has been rescheduled, after original tie was cancelled due to severe flooding in the region and the tragic loss of several lives. Ranieri wanted to pay his respects to those who lost their lives; he said: “I think a very important thing, more so than the game, is that people don’t forget. It is necessary that those in charge do [...]

It was a mixed week for Serie A clubs competing in Europe’s top competition. An enthralling encounter with the world’s best side ended in disappointment for AC Milan, while city rivals Inter did just enough to earn qualification into the knockout stages with a draw in Turkey. But for calcio fanatics, the highlight of this week’s Champions League action came from a 2-1 contest at the Stadio San Paolo; at the expense of Manchester City no less. With two more [...]

A memorable round for the Italian clubs who took seven points from a possible nine to place themselves in good positions for progression into the knock-out stages. Inter Milan have had a torrid start to their domestic season. Following a shock loss to Turkish minnows Trabzonspor in Champions League and the dismissal of Provincial manager Gian Piero Gasperini, the European Champions of 2010 earned a hard fought victory against CSKA Moskva away and are now on top of Group B [...]

Five goalless draws and an average of just 1.4 goals per game made for Serie A’s quietest round of games yet but there were still a handful of notable performances. Entertaining ties (particularly at the Stadio Olimpico) resulted in big wins for Lazio, Milan, Bologna and Parma, but Inter’s enduring woe is the real story of the week. The Nerazzurri fell to a 2-1 defeat at Catania to leave them just one point above the relegation zone: their worst start [...]

Serie A Weekly guest writer Michael Moruzzi with a few words on an Inter turnaround in the making Inter didn’t lend themselves to stability during the past two decades. The dogmatic approach to accumulating silverware – epitomised by Milan and Juventus in the late 1980’s and 90’s – was not for them. They followed their own path and for a long time there were few in Europe that could rival Inter’s spending, but as numerous immensely talented players came and [...]

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 [...]
