Can somebody stop Inter?

Posted on | August 28, 2008 | No Comments

In the last 4 years Inter have won three scudetti, two italian cups and three super cups.

All this trophys except the last super cup were won under Roberto Mancini mandate.

Of course we must take in consideration that Inter profited from the Calciopoli scandal two years ago when Juventus was relegated and Fiorentina and Milan started the next year with some points deduction.

Anyway they manage perfectly the situation and they succeed to finish 22 points in front of the runners Roma.

Last year they started very good again and it looked like they will repeat same performances and finish champions before the end of the season.

But after the second leg with Liverpool the problems began maybe not only because of the loose but also because of the injuries.

Even if they had the biggest squad in Seria A they were forced some times to use some players on different position that were used to play.

Inter manage somehow to win the third consecutive scudetto in the last Serie A match against Parma.

At the end of the season he was sacked by Massimo Moratti, just because of the weak results that Inter had in European Champions League. Last year they lost in the second round of the competition in front of Liverpool.

Jose Mourinho was brought and there are voices that sustain that he signed a precontract just after the european elimination.

Also like we were used, Inter moved on transfer market and the arrival of Mancini from Roma, Muntari from Portsmouth and Adriano who was loaned at Sao Paolo to the delighted the fans.

Quaresma from Porto is also expected to sign for Inter, so that Mourinho can apply his 4-3-3 tactic with two wingers to sustain the striker.

The expectations are bigger this season and the main objective this season will be European succes.

Also the competitors were active on transfer market mostly Fiorentina and Milan who made importants signing like Ronaldinho, Flamini, Senderos, Boriello, Schevcenko for Milan and Gilardino, Vargas, Melo, Jovetic, Almiron.

Roma had signed only two important players Julio Baptista from Real Madrid, Riise from Liverpool and is still looking to for another attacher who will be one of Suazo, Menez or Malouda.

Juventus had signed Amauri from Palermo, Sevilla’s Poulsen, Mellberg on a free transfer. The others are not so notable.

Considering the perfect start, the returning of Chivu, Materazzi , Cordoba, Viera, most notable, and the mentality that Mourinho transmits to the players is hard to believe that other team will manage to steal the glory from Inter side.
