@signore_pogsy – MY INTER STARTING ELEVEN FOR 2012/2013 SEASON

The transfer market is here again, the time known for clubs to make possible additions and subtractions to and from their teams, some teams also use this time to make changes in management as well as coaching staff but that can be done at any time.  Buying and selling of players for the upcoming season already started as far back as January but officially, the transfer window for the new season does not open until the 1st of July.

After a terrible campaign last season that not only saw Inter finish the season trophyless, but also saw the team finish in sixth position, it’s lowest league position in many years, the Inter management towards the end of last season showed signs of wanting to start a long-term project with the appointment of Andrea Stramaccioni, a young and talented coach who had recently won the Next Gen series and had also done some good work with the Inter Primavera.  Stramaccioni was also the guy who guided the team to a sixth place finish in the league which qualified them for next season’s Europa League.

Now to the real reason for this writeup, Inter and the transfer market.  Since the appointment of Stramaccioni, Inter’s targets in the transfer market have been somewhat defined clearly and the coach has been carried along by the management during transfer operations.  For those that have been following Strama from the Primavera, it is clear that he favours the 4-2-3-1 formation mostly but switches to the 4-3-3 and 4-3-2-1 as the need may be, he likes his teams to attack and also keep possession of the ball and it is clear that it is with this formation in mind that the transfer market men would base their targets on.

Another important factor that should also be considered is finances.  The team is low on finances especially for transfers and it is no secret that our president, Massimo Moratti has stated that the team needs to sell before purchases can be made.  This means that players with high market values and the high earners in the team are going to make way for cheaper options.  So many names ranging from Handanovic to Leandro Damiao have been mentioned by the media as possible targets for the club but I am not going to dwell on that, in this piece I’ll focus on the players that I believe are suitable for the team on the field and off the field (financially).

My 1st year as an Interista by @Robert_Iadanza

“Daddy, can I play soccer?” An innocent enough question posed by my four-year old last year. “Of course,” I answered. I mean, what parent wants to deny their child’s interest in athletic activity?

I thought I was just being a good parent. What I didn’t realize was that moment changed my life in a way I never expected – it became even better and even more meaningful.

Then a funny thing happened. I fell in love. At 41, I fell in love with calcio. I was proud of Isabella as she was getting great joy out of playing. She was improving and scored her first goal! As an avid sports fan, I have to root for a player and a team. My daughter will always be my favorite player. So what team would I fall in love with? Being an Italian-American, I knew my love was waiting for me in Serie A. My team had to have tradition, a loyal fan base…and a jersey I would love wearing!

For me personally, our colors are everything.  A friend of mine say this is a religion.  There are only two colors in this world to me it is BLACK and BLUE.As a hotelier and my hierarchy as a Concierge, I loves to have some chit-chat or maybe just a simply share a laugh with people.One day 2 guys approached me and asked me about local food.  I gave them the information they asked for then the conversation continued and I found out they were from ITALY.  The first thing came up in my mind is of course about FC INTERNAZIONALE MILANO.  The only one Italian club who won Treble, the Only one Italian club who never have Serie B in the tradition.In the middle of conversation i dared to ask one of ’em “Signor, I believed you are following Serie A?  Which club do you support?”  Then Luca (one of the 2 guys who approached me) answered “Serie A? Yes I do, I’m an INTERISTA!”  I spontaneously popped-up and said with cheer “Oh my God, I’m an Interista too! It’s really good to see an original Italian Interista”  In one step he took his wallet and showed me his official Inter fans club ID and me too, I show him my ICI Bandung (Inter Club Indonesia) ID and we both laughing loud just like 2 old friends that separated then meet up. What a feeling…

SerieA: Inter 2-1 Cesena Match Report by @siamak_j

Inter – Cesena Match Report by Siamak J.

 On a sunny and pleasant Sunday afternoon in Milan, Inter scored two and conceded one as Cesena lost the battle on the Giuseppe Meazza. After having won in Udine in the mid-week fixture, the highly desirable third place in the Serie A was still reachable for Inter as Lazio surprisingly lost away to Novara. Before Sunday’s game, the Nerazzurri were on a string of five consecutive games without losing. A string of games that began when the up-and-coming Andrea Stramaccioni took over as the replacement for Claudio Ranieri on the Inter bench. Following the 2-2 draw in Rome between AS Roma and Napoli in the Saturday night fixture, Inter were fifth with 52 points earned, while Napoli were fourth with 55 points after 35 games – on the same tally as third placed Lazio, who played Udinese on Sunday night.
