Say what you want about inter. They used to throw away leads. They’ve developed this awful habit of getting themselves out of losing/drawing situations with late goals.

I remember when we used to do that but we tend to go the other way these days!!

Inter is on a downward spiral, Torino just beat themselves, I love what Conte is doing.
They're crap but this comeback win and an inevitable win against a decimated Real Madrid (even just missing Sergio Ramos is enough for RM to lose) will give them a morale boost for the next run of games.

But they'll go back to finding ways to drop points, they are specialists at it. Once the going gets tough Inter get flaccid.

As far as I'm concerned the starting point for our season was that Cagliari game.

Agree on all points. So who is the favorite for the 2nd this year? My money is on Roma

I really don't know, it's such a random season anything could happen. I've seen Roma fly at the start of several seasons and then fall away badly, so I don't get too carried away about them. The atmosphere around Roma has always been crippling. But they look good so far.

There look like being 6 teams challenging at this point, but by February we'll be able to exclude probably 3 of the teams, because we'll know that they don't have the spirit and quality to make points up. We just don't know which 3 yet.

how the fuck is the ref meant to judge any contact on hakimi from that angle???
The ref was close enough to see it live that there was contact, I guess.

I'm more troubled about Hakimi's position not being considered offside nowadays. I know that by the book it was a new action because the Torino defender already touched the ball and it's the rule that I have a problem with. This is not one of those situations when an attacker is in passive offside when a pass is made to a teammate and then he's onside for the pass to him. Hakimi was coming back from offside to win the ball when he was fouled. Everything's by the rules, but the rule is dumb.

The ref can't have because he had to review it on VAR.

Did you see what Cunte said about the penalty to lukaku? match fixing piece of shit, there is no way this inda side will win anything this season.
