i wanted Juve to win this one just to bring inter back to reality....but oh well, that's 120 min in inter's legs...it adds up. hope we don't do the same with Genoa tomorrow
Yes but no. At least for me. The super coppa holds little value. I actually would be alright with Juve winning it. It gives some fake sense of success which may mask a lot of troubles they have.Very happy that Juve is about to loose.

The worst thing actually to happen to Juve is Bonucci and Chiellini to perform well at the euros. Which made Juve think things are alright at defence. Im fairly sure of Bonucci+Chiellini failed at the euros their defensive line would look very different.
Its incredible how many games in a row merda can play at full lineup!I'm not watching super closely, just have the game on while I work, but in general: Juventus are playing sloppy, but they are missing a lot of players. Inter are at full-strength and they are looking good, but nothing incredible. Inter are a good team, no doubt, but they are not this invincible monster.
The fact that they are able to play the same lineup, week-in, week-out, with very little rotation, especially in this covid space where it seems like so many teams have injuries (nothing as bad as us) it's insane to me.Its incredible how many games in a row merda can play at full lineup!
We also picked up Bakayoko and Messias.scrupulous, diligent Scouting + creating an environment/club culture for the young to flourish is not Moneyballing.
Of course there is context - you took the time to see that.Not quite a fair comparison if you compare Chelseas and Citys revenues to Atalantas. Our ours. Our to that of whole Serie A. The problem is well known and documented. Economically, we can't and probably will never compete with the PL clubs.
Then yes, there are Real, Barca, PSG and Bayern. Some of them are struggling. Some not so much. Bayern for example benefits a lot from its privileged status in BL, not so much the league itself tho.
I think compared to Atalanta tho our managements effort to become way more competitive also from an annual revenue POV to all of them mentioned above is evident and under everyone's eyes. Brk just posted some official numbers from 2019 and 2020 season showing we're moving in a very good direction.
Our investments will always be in relation to those revenues. We'll get there, have faith, but not as soon as the fans wished it to be, but it is what it is.
I’ve read Inter have some great fitness trainer, read about him some time back. He’s one of the best apparently. Could be the simplest most logical answer, our fitness team is crap.The fact that they are able to play the same lineup, week-in, week-out, with very little rotation, especially in this covid space where it seems like so many teams have injuries (nothing as bad as us) it's insane to me.
I've heard a lot of commentators say that "Inter has strength in depth," what depth? They don't use it. They trot out the same team, every game.
The injury situation at Milan is unacceptable. Kjaer, that stuff happens (Chiesa, Zaniolo, etc) but the constant muscular injuries? That's about training, that's about overuse, that's about having a medical and training staff that knows how to handle these sorts of things.
They play Atalanta next, they probably play the same starting XI they played today, no injuries. I'm not wishing injuries on anyone, I'm just amazed at what they are able to do. We play Leao too much and he's out for a month. They push Perisic, nothing. How?
