We just tied Brescia with a penalty. I'm beyond disappointed with how we have been playing.

Blame the players. Not the manager. :roll: Seriously, Rafa will eventually drive this team into the ground.

When you win, it's the players. When you lose, it's the manager. That's how it usually is, right? :p

I'm just gonna go ahead and blame the whole city. We shouldn't lose to Brescia. Period.

Here here!

Damn Ancellotti. Nothing to do with Torres deciding to show up for a change today...

Did anyone see the Milan derby? Inter were dreadful, even against ten men.

I think Benitez is really being exposed here as the average and unambitious tactician he has always been. At Liverpool he could blame lack of funds or boardroom unrest but he doesn't have that problem now. Inter won the treble last year and frankly they have really been disappointing since Rafa arrived.

We have a lot of injuries. Gattuso should have got sent off in the first half. And we played a lot better in the second half. But yes I'm gonna have to agree we didn't play anything like what i'm used to. I sat there with my head in my hands for most parts of the game. I am a grown man and wanted to cry at times.

Rafa you need to leave sir.

Inter’s performance was best summed up by President Massimo Moratti – “It doesn’t seem to me like we suffered against Milan’s play. The problem is that we actually didn’t play. It’s a different thing entirely and much more grave.”

The "Rafa Benitez" phenomenon can be compared to Nuclear Holocaust or a self destruct button. Ultimately, no one wins, and the process is irreversible.

I don't want him as the coach of Inter. I feel despair when I think of him coaching.

Apparently Benitez is to be fired by Inter. It only took them 6 months. Unlike Liverpool, it seems Inter know when to cut their losses and move on.

Am I the only one who thinks he is a good manager?

People who say something cannot be done are often surprised by others doing it.

You might be :P He's had his moments, that's for sure but he's a very confrontational manager. He's had run ins with owners and opposing managers. Sometimes I think he should worry more about his team than others.
I haven't seen much of Inter this season except for a few games in the Champions League but they look like a different team from last years. It makes you kind of ask yourself: Did Mourinho get Inter to overachieve last year and this is their normal standard? Or is it Rafa that has been the problem?


In related news, apparently some Liverpool fans think he's a good manager. I don't see this happening.
