What do you guys think of João Mário?

And do you still regret getting Quaresma several years ago?

Needless to say, I bet you guys like Figo and especially Mourinho a lot...

JM is a very intelligent and highly technical player. However, his natural role (winger) does not fit well with the tactics of our team. We're hoping that with a new coach and (finally!) some clear ideas on how to run the club, he will play a central role in the team and show us his talent.

No we don't. That year Mourinho insisted to have wingers and we bought Quaresma and Amantino Mancini. Both turned out to be extremely inconsistent. Great talent, but not for top level leagues.

Figo was a gentleman who joined us late in his career and still managed to show us amazing things.

Mourinho is a legend, of course. In Inter he found the best possible club to implement his "victim" strategy since Inter historically has always been a minor political power behind Juventus/Milan and has no influence on the media, while Juventus is supported by a Turin newspaper and Milan is backed by Berlusconi's TVs. The result was that Mourinho ended up being the best expression of what Inter represents: a passionate outsider who needs to fight for respect, while others do not have problems to use cheap tricks behind the back to get what they want. The same strategy completely failed in Madrid and also backfired at Chelsea (chelsea is a powerhouse now, not a newcomer like in 2005!). Inter and Mourinho were a perfect match for those two years, but like all great love stories, it was not meant to last. We went "all in" economically for that season and we're still paying the consequences now.

I can't judge him.
I don't know if he's a winger or a simple midfielder.

J. Mario is a promising midfielder who didn't really have an easy championship due to the managerial chaos we had this season, however I think he's a good player and I believe he can do well

Quaresma was a flop, not exactly the best player around, but to be honest in recent years we have spent more money on players who have done much worse than him... like Kondogbia in my opinion. Still, Quaresma was able to do well elsewhere, now at Besiktas he's won a second league medal, so can't say things went bad for him...

And yes - Figo and Mourinho were obviously amazing, and I still support Mourinho to this day

You guys also had an oval shaped one like Milan and Juventus did? Had no idea.

And what's with the snake one? That one stands out significantly.

Do crests get big changes in Italy like they do in England? In Portugal they don't tend to change much.
The snake crest was and still is my absolute favourite

I think João Mário is not a bad player, but he is struggling to justify the amount of money that was paid for him; unfortunately this is something that gets a lot of attention in Italy, particularly at Inter where we are attacked by the media constantly. Nevertheless, I am hoping for a much improved second season for him, and in a more stable environment.

I agree, under Spalletti I think he will do much better.

Does Inter have any special relationship with any other clubs? Benfica are friends with Torino due to the Superga tragedy(we were their very last opponents). Real Madrid also share an historical friendship with us and Santiago Bernebéu in particular was a big friend of ours and would call our club occasionally asking if we needed any help, not to mention Eusébio was friends with Di Stéfano. Eusébio also was godo friends with Bobby Charlton, hence why Man Utd and Real Madrid paid homage Eusébio after he perished. Another club we had some historical affinity with were Hearts from Scotland. Our first ever European Cup opponent, I believe. Barcelona also seem to have respect for us.

And there's also a friendship between the ultra groups of Benfica and Hajduk Split, but that's another story. I don't think both clubs have any sort of relationship on an institutional level.

Our most famous relationship is with Lazio, although it is deemed "useless" by many supporters of both clubs - especially since Roma and Milan no longer get on with one another and particularly since Lazio have appeared to favour Juventus in recent years. We used to be twinned with Fiorentina at one stage, but that fell through when we bought Nicola Berti in the late 80's and we even became bitter rivals when their president fell out publicly with Massimo Moratti some years ago.

Apart form that, we are officially twinned with Nice in France since 2015, because one of our "ultras" signed for them as a striker!

We are also friends with Valencia even though a Champions League match between the 2 teams ended in a brawl 10 years ago. There is also a bond between Inter and local team Varese, mainly to counter the relationship between respective derby rivals Como and Milan.

The relationship we are proudest of the most however is with The Kop at Liverpool. I'm not sure exactly why or how this came about. I think it may have something to do with Benitez and/or the fact that we housed many of their fans in the CL match against Tottenham in 2010, although I am unsure why Liverpool supporters would want to go and watch a game between Inter and Spurs...

And is there any foreign club Inter fans in general dislike due to past games and/or incidents?

I don't think most Benfica fans like Chelsea much. I certainly don't. I personally don't like Manchester United at all either but for different reasons.

I think some Juventus fans began hating Benfica after the 2014 semi-final, not because of the game itself but more because of our friendship with Torino.

Well...I hate Barcelona after the semifinal of the CL 2009/2010 and Porto(I still remember the price for Quaresma and Alvaro Pereira:3wall)

No-one likes Juventus. They are scum.

I don't think there are many international clubs that we dislike, that I am aware of...
Personally, I have a problem with both Real Madrid, because they have a habit of 'poaching' our best players (and managers!), and Barcelona because of the 2010 CL semi when they did not take the defeat very well at all and even turned on the pitch sprinkler at the end of the game in an attempt to ruin our celebrations.

I didn't know Pereira palyed for Inter, to be honest. What about Rolando? What did you think of him?

Come to think of it, not many Portuguese and Portuguese league players have played for the big 3 Italian clubs.

Tbh Juventus were also dicks to us before the 2nd leg. In the 1st leg Cáceres should have gotten a book for obstructing one our players in the box. We should have been awarded a PK at Luz. After the 1st leg Juventus tried to get one of our players suspended and criticised our gesture of paying homage to Torino due to the Superga disaster. I remember lots of benfiquistas being pissed off at Juventus for that and Conte's words at the end of the 2nd leg also reeked of butthurt. Also, before the first game, Pirlo said he felt sorry for us and Llorente said he was happy he was gonna face a Spanish side in the final. After the 2nd leg Pirlo admitted they had underestimated us a bit.

Almost forgot, Benfica and Marseille fans don't see eye to eye much either due to past games. Also, lots of Portuguese immigrants born in France live in the Paris metro are and thus tend to support PSG, Marseille's top rival.

one question, what do you think about juventus? in italy almost everyone hates it for many reasons. Not only calciopoli( however they are still cheaters today), but beacuse their fans are very arrogant and the media praise the club and overstimate every player ( not only journalists but also during the commentary of the matches)

for example in italy a journalist said 2 weeks ago that if Cristano ronaldo played in juventus he would stay on the bench. Another one said that lemina ( one of juventus weakest players) is stronger than modric and many of them said that dybala should win the golden ball and he is stronger than messi ( i swear, i am not joking :ghigno: )

it's ridicolous but many juventus supporters believes it...
I have some foreign friends ( from brazil and england) and they know juventus for calciopoli and being cheaters...

what is the reputation of juventus in portugal? here in italy is the most hated club, they have commited every kind of crimes: cheating, doping, control of the media, mafia association (this year it has been discovered that one of the leaders of Ndrangheta, the second biggest mafia in italy, met Andrea Agnelli, juventus chairman, regularly. Ndrangheta is involved in the tickets sales of Juventus Stadium...)


ps: my english sucks, sorry :ghigno:

Rolando played for Inter just for a season(2013/2014) but he turned out to be a passable defensor,more reliable than Ranocchia and Vidic.
I can't understand why Inter didn't want to buy him...after all they had to spend just 4 millions:strano

First of all, your English isn't bad overall. I understood what you said, fine.

Lots of journalists and fans say ridiculous shit. Not surprised some would say that about Dybala being better than Messi. I don't like watching those weekly TV shows where there's a bunch of guys arguing about this week's game(s) and fighting for who can speak louder. If I wanted to see super biased supporters arguing I'd jut walk to my local café/restaurant and watch the old men there argue.

Juventus' reputation in Portugal? I don't know. Just another big European club, playing in a top 5 European league with lots of tradition, I guess. But it seems to me that AC Milan have a better reputation worldwide than Juventus do. For years I believed AC Milan were the biggest Italian club. 7 ECs/CLs give you a lot of media exposure worldwide.

Of course Calciopoli made the news here in Portugal back when it happened but I dunno if many people still remember it or not. As for bigger football fans who know more about football and consume it everyday following many leagues, etc. some don't like Juventus due to Calciopoli. Several benfiquistas have referred to Juventus as "Italy's FC Porto" before, even. But I believe, generally speaking, Italian football has a reputation for scandals, and people stopped caring about it After the early/mid 2000s. People nowadays only seem to watch the Premier League or La Liga(well... Real Madrid and Barcelona, that is).

The club that has been involved in the mot shady shit here is Porto. They've had the same President, Pinto da Costa, since 1982 or so. Some of his associates and former Porto players refer to him as "the pope" or equate him to a Godfather like figure. Also, he was once the president of the league and FC Porto at the same time. In the 90s Porto had their refs on their side and even paid them trips to Brazil and offered them prostitutes. In 2003-2004 a scandal broke here with Porto being involved in match fixing and the wiretaps are even on tv and even can be found on youtube. They got some points deducted years later(2008), and the only reason they didn't get banned from UEFA competitions or faced relegation here in Portugal was because they used the "you can't wiretap us without informing us first like that!"... and that worked. Even if they were discussing prostitutes for the refs and such through phone calls. If you ever wondered why Portugal is weaker than other EU countries... well stuff like this doesn't help.

Since you asked me what Juventus' reputation is in Portugal lemme ask you: What's the reputation of Portuguese football in Italy? Mainly the big 3 clubs(Benfica, Porto and Sporting)? I'm gonna assume Portuguese teams are viewed as teams that can do respectable European runs despite having lower budgets than teams from England, Spain, Italy, France, Russia, Turkey and Germany. And I suppose Benfica and Porto are known for selling players for large fees as well.

there is another question i want to ask you. What do you think of Andre Silva? Is he worth 38 mln?
it s the new striker of ac milan
I'm not the best person to ask that since I only really watch Benfica games as far as Portuguese league goes nowadays. The general consensus is, he's not gonna be exactly a world class player. Doubt he's gonna be the star of AC Milan, but don't quote me on that.
