I'm honestly disgusted, even the commentators in game said they were dives and the referee match rating thing gave him a 3.8, what a way to end my Serie A unbeaten run. I was at 88 unbeaten! :(

Haha I couldn't think of an excuse to switch commentators, so I turned Bono into a murderer :P
Pathetic actions by Robinho. He should be castrated because he is no longer a man after that match! Unlucky on the loss mate especially in the Milan derby but you'll bounce back fine!

You'd think I made up the diving to cover up my loss, but the commentary strip IN GAME said after both the penalty and red card "He went down like he'd been shot! Surely a dive!" :(
That was absolutely class :D Too bad about the derby result, but I'm always the same. I can be top of the league by 20 points but I always seem to buckle under the pressure at derbies :P

The only problem is, I was 2 points clear of Juve going into the game, not 20 XD

Bergomi Strikes Out At Ref, Robinho




After Inter's controversial 2-1 derby loss to bitter rivals AC Milan, the Nerazzurri manager Guiseppe Bergomi had plenty to say after the match. Upon encountering the press after leaving the dressing room, Bergomi started, "I will not take any questions about the referee or Robinho, you will have to settle for what I say now." What followed was a terrific rip into the two subjects he mentioned.

"That was by far the worst diving I have ever seen. What Robinho did was absolutely disgraceful, it's things like this that are ruining the beautiful game. Beyond that, I cannot believe the referee bought both of Robinho's shocking dives. I'm wondering how much extra money he [the referee] has taken home for that. I spoke with Andrea [Poli, recipient of the red card] and Emerson [Luiz, whose tackle led to the penalty] and I told them they were fine and sometimes cheaters get their way, but I can assure you one thing. My lads are absolutely itching to set the record straight, and if we have a half fair match next time, I can guarantee they will."

On the topic of Inter's record-shattering 88 game run in Serie A without defeat coming to an end, the ex-Inter star was much more optimistic. "It was a brilliant run. It was unbelievable when Juventus did it, but I'm ecstatic we could one up them and go two seasons without a loss in Serie A, it's really unbelievable." He joked, "Personally, I wanted us to reach 100, but 88 isn't half bad." 88 games shattered the old Serie A record of 58 games which was set by AC Milan, the team who now end Inter's glorious run.

The most surprising of all, however, has been the action of Italian FA. Despite a minor warning against Bergomi accusing his Milanese counterparts of bribery and absolutely tearing apart the referee's decisions, the FA made no comments, warnings, or fines about those. It is believed that after video replays showed that both of the referee's decisions were blatantly incorrect, the FA allowed Bergomi's rant to go unpunished.
I love it when the FA know they're wrong and just shut up. Unlucky against AC anyway.

THE STREAK HAS ENDED! WHYYYYYYYY?!?!?! :(

The Special one: Haha yes me too, but usually it's in favor of me, not the other way around

Arvind: I know :( I wanted to get to 100, but hey, shattering the old record of 58 by 30 games isn't bad either ;)

November: Part Two

Serie A




We are back atop Serie A after losing the top spot following our loss to AC Milan. We are 1 point ahead with a game in hand, and if we win that game we will be 4 ahead, a good lead. The biggest problem I have now is already being 11 behind Juventus in goal difference. It is clear that this season they will outgun us, but we have to keep picking up points to ensure goal difference isn't a factor.

UEFA Champions League




Qualified as first in the group with a match to spare! The younger lads will appreciate some European game time, and we can rest our players who have to play week in week out in the league and other competitions. Hopefully we can continue this form in the knockout stages.

Player of the Month

Valentino Lazaro is our player of the month, the youngster really stepped up in the last two games, registering two assists against APOEL and both goals in a vital win over rivals Juventus to go top of Serie A.



Monthly Review

It was overall a good month, but it had its disappointments, the main one being the unjust loss to AC Milan. We are gutted as a club to have our 88 match streak in Serie A broken at last, but we are determined to go on and have a successful season. We have qualified from our Champions League group as well, which we want vengeance in after losing the final in penalties. I'm happy Luis Muriel finally scored his first two goals of the season against APOEL, hopefully he will go on a streak much as he did last season at around this time. Gutted to lose Ademilson and Gautier to 5 week injuries, hopefully we can cope without the depth and they return quickly.
Great return to form and you're keeping the lead over Juve. Goal diff doesnt matter as long as you keep winning haha ;) tough loss of Ademilson to injury though :(

Cheers buddy. Losing Addy has affected Destro I think, he hasn't scored in 2 games, his worst run all year xD

Dortmund Express Interest In Juan




Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre has admitted that he is very interested in bringing Internazionale center back Juan Jesus to Germany. The center back has been an important part of Giuseppe Bergomi's Inter set up for the last two seasons, especially since Walter Samuel retired, and will not be a cheap option.

To a reporter who asked about Juan, Favre replied, "He is a very good player, at only 23 years of age. We are always interested in bringing talented young players to Dortmund. We are working toward bringing him here, but nothing is official yet."

The center back is expected to cost around 17.5m euros, not a cheap price for a defender. Juan has been renowned for his ability to mark and tackle, as well his as his strength in aerial duels. Physically, Juan is fast and strong, and has been a very strong partner to Andrea Ranocchia for Inter. He has become a fan favorite, and it will not go down well with fans of the Nerazzurri if he is sold.

Giuseppe Bergomi responded to Favre's comments by saying, "Juan is a top player that we'd like to keep at the San Siro, but if a very good bid comes in, we would have to consider it."

A number of potential replacements for Juan have been guessed at by the media and fans, with the two most likely figures being Kurt Zouma and Giuseppe Bellusci. Bellusci is transfer listed by request at Catania, and it has been said that a price of 5m euros is all that would be necessary to pry him away from the club. He is renowned for his marking and heading, but also his determination and aggression.



Zouma is a far younger talent, only 20 years of age, but already considered the next great defender. The St. Etienne lad is a physical monster and a dominant defender known for his heading and marking, but would cost at least 25m euros. Despite being a far less economically smart option, Zouma is considering far the superior purchase.
