Inter team looks so strong yet he fail to make full use of it.

Vieri, Crespo, Recoba, Emre, J. Janetti are all pack with forces to go full scale attack. I'm pretty sure if coach with attack in mind lead Inter, Inter will not be the underdog anymore.

But he somehow manage to secure 2nd place in the serie A. So maybe his defensive magic do works. :confused:
Yap I totally agreed with you. Inter need a more attacking minded coach. How about Roberto Mancini, Lazio coach now. He do a very good job and he get along well with players. Now there's rumous if Mancini join Inter, Veron will agree to a swope with Recoba. Isn't Inter need a good midfielder!

Vieri has lost his patient with Inter and if Cuper remains at Inter next season, I don't see why he want to stay at Inter anymore.

I really hope that Inter President Massimo Moratti will sack Cuper after this season. The truth is Cuper is not able to lead Inter to any glory. I pray everyday : sack cuper, sack cuper...

glad to see pple support teams outside the english leagues. anyway i started catching serie a since sec 2 when they use to show the hightlights in channel 12 every weekend. Somehow it caught my eye and when i watch the premerleague i was not impressed by the standard of play there.

i guess when enlish teams were banned from europe their standard dropped tremendously.

i think cuper bought some sort of stability to the team before he came Inter was a difficult team to coach bcause if the coach dont deliver, he will be sacked immediately. just look at the years before cuper came virtually there were new coaches every season.

To me cuper did a great job in bringing INter back to the top 3 of the serie a again. But i guess his abilities are there only. For INTER to go to the next level, i think change of the manager will be much helpful.

I have to agree with you that Cuper is somehow doing a decent job and i dont know how the hell he can do that. But if this continues, Inter is going nowhere. It's like it will be stuck there till the Cuper is changed with a better coach.

One look at the team member and you will know this team is more to the attacking side. Me too hope that Inter will remove Cuper and get a more reputable manager to lead Inter to glory!

BTW, it seems like this thread is slowly turning into a how Inter can improve threads. LOL

We inter fans Hi-Jack hwmook thread. LOL :laugh:

Never say never in football. Coaching a big club is an achieving for him. Even if he's not joining the coming season but it may be a season after.

Coppa Italia Result : Roma 1 - 4 AC Milan

Latest News:

Milan seem to have the Coppa Italia in the bag after Serginho's brace earned a crushing 4-1 first leg victory at Roma's Stadio Olimpico.

The Rossoneri are the only team fighting on three fronts and rested several top stars ahead of the Champions?ELeague Final.

The Giallorossi are already assured of the UEFA Cup qualifying spot given to the winners of this trophy, as Milan will enter the Champions?ELeague next season.

Francesco Totti and Marcos Cafu returned from long injury lay-offs to support the on-form Antonio Cassano upfront, but Vincenzo Montella and Francisco Lima were out of action.

Milan had the first real chance on nine minutes when Tomasson chested down the ball, flipped it over Jonathan Zebina and brought a difficult save out of Ivan Pelizzoli.

Christian Abbiati was also tested with a flying fingertip save on Cassanoís splendid curling effort ?Ea finish usually associated with Juveís Alessandro Del Piero.

Rivaldo showed more enthusiasm than Milan fans have become accustomed to and charged past several defenders, but Zebina out-sprinted him as he reached the box.

Francesco Totti eventually broke the deadlock in spectacular fashion. On the half-hour mark the Roma captain rifled a simply unstoppable free kick into the roof of the net from almost thirty metres. The sheer power on the finish did not stop it curling around the defensive wall.

It was a tense game with a high tempo and there were several yellow cards during the first half. Christian Brocchi, Massimo Ambrosini and Cafu will be suspended for the second leg. Fabio Capelloís men were more energetic and took control after Tottiís goal.

Rivaldo got into a good scoring position on the edge of the box, but somehow fired well wide of the target.

The visitors fought back after the break, but Brocchiís effort was deflected out for a corner kick.

Soon after Pelizzoli made a reaction save on Tomassonís close-range effort, but there were also penalty appeals for a push on Serginho.

Milan poured forward and left Roma space to counter-attack, but Abbiati performed a difficult save on Cafuís angled drive.

The pressure paid off on 62 minutes when Christian Panucci slapped the ball off Tomassonís chest and the referee pointed to the spot.

Milan have missed five penalties in Serie A this season, but Serginho converted successfully to draw level.

The Giallorossi charged back into the game and had a double chance moments later. Emersonís fierce volley was fingertipped onto the post before Abbiati plucked Panucciís header off the line.

The game turned around completely on 70 minutes with a curious piece of luck for the Rossoneri. Massimo Ambrosiniís totally free header took a decisive deflection off Zebina to leave his goalkeeper helpless.

Tomasson was forced off with a shoulder injury, so Andriy Shevchenko made a late appearance.

Roma were clearly in shock and soon after Serginho sprung the offside trap to lift the ball over Pelizzoli.

It was an action-packed second half and Abbiati was again crucial on Tottiís bullet free kick, but was very shaky on another effort from the captain. Daniele De Rossiís free header shaved the near post as Roma kept pushing.

In the final minute substitute Andriy Shevchenko sealed the humiliating scoreline with a wonderful goal. The Ukrainian took the ball past Panucci with his chest before a delicate lob left the Ďkeeper stranded.

The second leg will be played at the San Siro on May 31.


Roma 1-4 Milan

Scorers: Totti 28 (R), Serginho pen 62, 73 (M), Zebina og 70 (M), Shevchenko 89 (M)

AC form is slowly coming back. Kind of slow but good enough. That's why i think in the final, AC might actually hold the cup.

Hehe, i can say i like most Serie A team. Just that i'm a little more to Inter. Just that little more coz somehow i need to settle for 1. LOL

It would be perfect if Inter can buy Totti over! Totti is good and i find that he's been buried by Roma. Inter need a solid attack midfield and i believe Totti can do the job. Come on INTER, spend your CASH ON TOTTI!

So with Coppa Italian cup almost within reach, Final in CL and 3rd place with possible a 2nd place finish in the league is considered bad? I dun think so... In fact so far, I will say Milan has a successful season be it a win or loss in the CL final... The reason y Milan is in 3rd place and not in the first place is because of the inconsistent form against those weaker teams... They have struggled against the weaker team... I still can't believe that they lose to Empoli at home... and failing to beat Brescia and Atalanta... This is wre Inter and Juve gain ground.. They beat these weaker teams with ease... And in each and every game, Milan dominate the proceeding and have a better chances of scoring but the finishing is not up to standard... The 1-0 scoreline is not because Ancelotti deploy a defensive strategy but because the strikers can't put in all the opportunites... This is not an excuse but this is how it is... Ancelotti may not be a coach who opt for an out and out attack but neither is he a very defensive coach as Hector Cuper...

Inter boss Moritti likes Totti very much. He ever said that he wanted Totti wearing Inter shirt. But, but Francesco Totti never want to leave Roma. He ever said that even if Roma relegated to Serie B, he'll still follow.

How about Vieri go to Roma But again Roma boss Sensi is a super stingy boss, no way for him to fork out the money. So we can only enjoy both in Azurri's shirt

Totti damn loyal. Not a fame seeker or anything. I like that kind of personality. He plays good football and his team need some good players to coordinate with him, then we can see Roma back to their previous glory form.

I dunno what u expect. But for me I've a higher expection from AC Milan. Still remember the 80's period the 3 Dutch Musketeers who rip all european teams apart? I think with the players they have now it is not too demanding to ask for more. But with Ancelotti as Milan Coach, one can never expect AC Milan to turn to a team near that.

I never want to compare Ancelotti to Hector Cuper coz Cuper is gone case, he has reach the limit and already beyond our toleration level.

I strongly believe a more agressive and attacking minded coach will help Milan to achieve more, gain more respect and fear others more.

I still bet on Gigi Del Neri, the current Chievo coach.
