Inter breeze past Parma
Parma 1-3 Inter....'Dzagoev, 'Welliton x2
At this stage of the season every point is vital, and Inter took another 3 after a convincing win in Parma. A goal from Alan Dzagoev and a brace from Welliton was enough to see the Nerrazzurri over the line and Inter manager D4N can take a lot of positives from his sides performance. Parma on the other hand will want to forget all about Inter now until next season after conceding 6 goals over the two games. The first half was stop start and the game didn't get going really until just before half time. Nico Gatian picked up possession of the ball out wide and ran towards goal. The Argentine was fouled by Gobbi who had tried his best to win back the ball, but gave away the penalty. Alan Dzagoev was the obvious choice to take it, he hasn't missed from the spot since his move to the club. The Russian converted as expected, driving the ball down the middle of the goal to put his side ahead, 1-0 Inter at half time. The second half started and on the 48th minute Inter had doubled there lead. Serie A top scorer, Welliton getting his 25th goal of the season after picking the ball up in a wide position on the right, the Brazil International cut inside and hammered the ball past the keeper just on the edge of the half circle. Fantastic finish, unstoppable. Inter in cruise control now 2 up and Parma hadn't looked like threatening Ruffier's goal. Gareth Bale went close, hitting the cross bar with a looping effort and the rebound hacked away by Zacardo at the last second as Pasquato was waiting to poke home. It did get worse before it got better for Parma. Welliton grabbed his second with an astonishing bicycle kick. Nico Gatain was picked out by Pirlo on the right. Gobbi was jockeying his man but the number 11 was too clever as he worked the ball onto his left foot and fired a cross in that was behind everyone, but Welliton adjusted his body and hit a over head kick into the bottom corner. Brilliant sight and the Brazilian has a contender for goal of the season there, Inter have produced some magnificent goals over the campaign and that one was up there with Dzagoev's and Douglas'. Parma managed to claw one back, Palladino striking in off the post. But the points wer Inter's and D4N will be pleased with his side's dominance today.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Welliton
Inter 1-1 Bari....'Welliton
Follwoing a convincing victory at Parma, Inter welcomed promoted side Bari to the San Siro and D4N will be disappointed with the result. Bari have lots of pace when attacking and some of Inter's more senior players did struggle to keep up with the pace. Cristian Galano put Bari ahead to silence the home crowd and surprise them at the same time. The Italian knocked the ball round Lucio and tricked Ruffier then tapped it over the line. Good goal and Inter wer behind at the San Siro. Prior to this fixture Inter wer yet to loose in Serie A at the San Siro this season. Star striker Welliton saved his sides blushes in the 75th minute with a trademark finish to rescue a point for his side. D4N will expect better from his players if they are to mount a serious challenge on Napoli and Juventus.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Cristian Galano
Galano silenced the San Siro with his goal
Arsenal take 2 goal advantage to Milan
Arsenal look to be on their way to the semi-finals after beating Inter Milan 2-0 at the Emirates in the Quater final first leg. Goals from Theo Walcott and Yaya Toure wer enough to see out the win with the Italian giants needing to win 3-0 at the San Siro in 90 minutes. Inter fell at this stage last season to Arsenal's North London rivals, Tottenham so it will be a tough ask for D4N's men.
"It's a disappointing result. We came here with the intention of containing Arsenal and trying to break away on the counter but some of their football tonight was outstanding. All we can do now is work hard on the training ground and try our best to turn it round next week at home. We do need to be more clinical in the final third i think, goals have not been a problem in the League this season so we need to try to bring that back to our game in this competition, i think tonight we didn't create anywhere near enough chances and in the end it cost us." - Inter boss D4N speaking after the game.
Europa League - Quater-Finals - First leg
Arsenal 2-0 Inter
Inter have it all to do in the second leg next week after suffering defeat at the Emirates. Inter recorded just 4 shots at goal through out the game in which was dominated by a very assured Arsenal side. Theo Walcott opened the scoring on the half hour mark, after taking advantage of his blistering pace and a beautiful 1-2 with Gervinho. The England International hit the ball with the outside of his right foot beating Ruffier at his far post, great finish. The second came in the second half and it virtually killed Inter off. Former Man City midfielder, Yaya Toure escaping the clutches of Airton and smashing the ball into the top corner form 25 yards. Great strike and Inter wer deflated but managed to defend well for the remaining minutes.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Walcott
Roma 1-2 Inter....'Welliton, 'van Persie
Inter wer back to winning ways this week in Serie A beating AS. Roma 2-1 at the Stadio Olympico. Welliton found the net for the 28th time this season to put his side into the lead after taking the ball off Juan when Mexes fed his defensive partner short with a weak pass. The Brazillian found himself 1 on 1 with Stekelenburg and made no mistake in finishing the goal off. Roma hit back less than 10 minutes later, Ricardo Montilivo finding Giusepepe Rossi on the shoulder of the last man, the ball was perfectly timed and the little forward hit it first time passed Ruffier to equalise for Roma. Robin van Persie found the net in the second half to win his side the points. The Dutchman received the ball from Cabaye with his back to goal. A clever turn enabled him to get away from Juan and a first time strike with his left foot into the bottom corner. 2-1 was the final score.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Cabaye
Cabaye bossed the game against Roma today.
Inter demolish Arsenal at the San Siro to advance to the semis
Inter overcame Arsenal's 2 goal advantage to progress to the semi-finals of the Europa League in a scintillating 6-3 win progressing 6-5 on aggregate. A brace from former Arsenal star Andrey Arshavin, a hat-trick from Diego Milito and a goal from former Spurs player Gareth Bale was what it took for Inter to get through. Arsenal tho did fight back and managed to get three of their own from, Yaya Toure, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mertersacker, but it wasn't enough. Inter are now in the draw for the semis along with FC Shalke 04, Manchester City and Liverpool FC.
"Fantastic performance, i'm so proud of my players tonight. They never gave up and we are deservedly through to the semi-finals. I couldn't pick an individual, but both strikers wer top draw. We took a gamble on resting Welliton for tonights game and i asked Andrey (Arshavin) to do a job up top. He certainly did that and so did Diego (Milito). All we can do now is wait and see who is up next and go and do our best to get to the final, but first we need to keep our feet on the ground as we have a very important game against Napoli the weekend that must be our priority now." - Inter boss, D4N speaking after the game.
Europa League - Quater-Finals - Second Leg (0-2 from 1st leg)
Inter 6-3 Arsenal....'Arshavin x2, 'Milito x3, 'Bale....(Inter advance 6-5 on aggregate)
Inter Milan are in the semi-final draw for the Europa League after beating Arsenal 6-3 at the San Siro. SIx of the best it was for D4N's men who wer 4-0 up inside 25 minutes. Former Arsenal man, Andrey Arshavin opened the scoring after just 3 minutes. Alan Dzagoev slotting the ball through to his fellow countryman to knock past Victor Mannoe. The second came from a Gareth Bale cross when Diego Milito latched onto the end of it to head past the keeper. 2-0 now and 2-2 on aggregate with just 8 minutes played. D4N could not have wished for a better start. It stayed at 2-0 for just 6 minutes when two came in quick succession. Arshavin beat the offside trap after Debuchy lofted the ball over, all 4 Arsenal defenders wer static, as if they wer waiting for the flag but it didn't come and Arshavin was 1 on 1 with the keeper the number 7 took it past the keeper to tap in. He ran infront of the Arsenal fans with his finger against his lips 3-0 on the night and incredibally Arsenal are now chasing the game. The next came 2 minutes later when Milito hit an ambitious effort through a wall of Arsenal shirts and Mannoe could do nothing as he didn't see it. Both Inter strikers had hit 2 and just 25 minutes had past. Arsenal did get one back before thr break through, Yaya Toure but at the break it was 4-1 Inter. The second half was cagey for the first 10 minutes, Arsenal got another back though when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got to a loose ball from a mis placed pass by Pirlo. The young winger broke into the box and slotted the ball home all square on aggregate now at 4-4 and Arsenal would go through should the score stay the same. Inter hit back though, Gareth Bale recieved the ball in space from Davide Santon. The Welshman ran at Sagna and hit the ball across the keeper with his right foot. Great strike and Inter wer back in the driving seat. After the goal D4N shouted orders from the touch line to stay organised and compact, Inter did just that and they wer defending well. 5 minutes wer left on the clock when Milito put the tie to bed and grabbed his hat-trick. The number 22 took the ball down on his chest from a mis timed lofted ball by Vermalen. As soon as he entered the box he opened up his body and curled the ball into the far corner with his left foot. Great goal. Arsenal hit back with a Per Mertasacker header but it was too late Inter had won and are in the pot for the semis.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Milito
Milito's hat-trick destroyed Arsenal tonight.
Europa League Semi-Final Draw
The draw for the semi-finals of the Europa League have taken place and we have a clash between German side FC Schalke 04 and Italian giants, FC Internazionle. And in the other semi-final an all English meeting of Liverpool FC and Manchester City.
FC Schalke 04
Inter Milan will travel to Gelsenkirchen, Germany for the first leg at the Veltins-Arena a week on Thursday while, Manchester City will make the short trip to Anfield for the first leg of their tie. The final will be played in Bucharest, Romania at the Arena Națională where the winner of Semi-Final 1 will play the winner of Semi-Final 2, the winner of Semi-Final 1 being the home side.
The managers of each team where at the draw, held in Paris, France and wer able to give their take on the outcome,
"It will be tough. Inter are a very resilant side as we saw in the last round against Arsenal. We maybe would have liked to play the away leg first but we understood the posibility before the draw was made. It's the semi-final there is no such thing as an easy game at this stage and we aim to give it our best and try to make it to the final." - Schalke boss, Huub Stevens
"Schalke are a very good side, with some top players, Farfan, Papadopoulos, Holtby to name a few. Sneijder we know from his days here. It will be difficult. We have come a long way in this competiton and there is one last giant step to the final. We are a good side but as ive said so are Schalke. We are thankful that the second leg is at home as that is how we always prefer it, but we have a real chance here it's upto the players to take it." - Inter boss, D4N
"We know all about Man City. It's a bonus that we don't have to travel far and it's almost like another Premier League game. Liverpool Football Club has a rich history in European football and we will make if difficult for City at their place. Hopefully we will have what it takes to get to the final but i believe in my players." - Liverpool boss, Brenden Rodgers
"This competiton is a must win for us. We dropped out of the Champions League and we need to show our strength by winning this trophy. Liverpool will make it difficult and if we go through it will be even more difficult so we will wait and see." - Man City boss, Roberto Mancini
FSG currently own both Liverpool FC and FC Internazionale so the American business group may well be seeing dollar signs tonight, with the prospect of both clubs competing in the Final it would be win win for FSG. What ever happens we will be there in Bucharest to see who will be the 2014 Europa League Champions.
Inter 2-3 Napoli....'Roderick,'Welliton
Inter today slipped to their first home defeat of the season, in a game that was perhaps the most important in terms of the title. Inter's fate was sealed early on when the referee awarded a dubious penalty to Napoli after Lucio was deemed to have fouled Huntelaar. Replays show there was minimal contact and that if there was any at all it was outside the penalty area. Edinson Cavani spotted the ball and smashed it down the middle, The visitors took the lead. The Inter players did loose concentration again as they wer still arguing with the referee about the penalty desicion, resulting in Balzaretti and Ben Arfa being cautioned. Klass Jan Huntelaar sprung the offside trap as Debuchy played him on and smashed home a second. Napoli 2 up in the first half. It wasn't until after the break that Inter gave a response. Roderick Miranda getting on the scoresheet for the first time for his new club, leaping up to head in Pirlo's corner. 2-1 now and the team talk at half time from D4N seemed to galvanise his players. Welliton was the man who got the equaliser and his 29th league goal this season, an easy tap in after a goal mouth scramble from another Pirlo corner. One time Inter target, Edinson Cavani would break Inter hearts though. In the 89th minute the Uraguayan escpaed the clutches of Debucy and forced the ball in off the angle. 3-2 was the final score and D4N and Inter will feel agreaved with the referee's performance today.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Roderick
Lucio can't believe it as Napoli celebrate Cavani's penalty.
Welliton Blow for Inter
Inter Milan have been dealt a huge blow as star striker, Welliton has been ruled out for up to 3 weeks with a sprained ankle. The Brazilian suffered the injury at home sfter slipping down some stairs. Chief of Medical staff at Inter, Franco Combi has ruled the striker out for at least 3 weeks. This means that Welliton who has scored 29 league goals so far this season is unavailable for selection against Schalke in both legs of the Europa League semi-final, the game away to Chievo Verona and the Milan derby at least.
"Welliton has been our best player all season again, obviously it's a huge blow. This is his first real injury since he arrived here so it will be tough to have to cope without such an infulential player. He's been prolfic infront of goal ever since he joined and has scored 85 league goals in 2 and a half years for us thats an astonishing record so obviously a big player will be missing from the team. We have a strong enough squad to cope though and we hope he will be fit and ready to play in the Europa League Final, should we get there." - Inter boss, D4N

Sometimes I just hate this game!
Shaqiri just left my Bayern München side for Barcelona for only £27m even though they didn't offer any money for him and I didn't accept anything, I just got a message saying that Barcelona bought him for £27m
Shit game tbh!
Had to replace him with the monkey called Gareth Bale who cost alot more than Shaqiri was sold for!

No message about him wanting to leave and I always look very carefully in my inbox to see if there's something important, thats why this reaction.

Pasquato Breaks Chievo Hearts
Chievo 1-2 Inter....'Dzagoev, 'Pasquato
In the absence of star striker Welliton, Robin van Persie and Cristian Pasquato led the line for Inter today against Chievo Verona, as Inter got back to winning ways following their defeat at home to Napoli last week. The home side took the lead early on when Cruzado found the head of Di Michele after 15 minutes, much to the annoyance of D4N who's side have shipped far to many goals for a team right near the top of the table. With the title seemingly out of reach after last weeks defeat, Inter wer still playing to win despite being a goal down, the Nerrazzurri had Chievo penned back into their own half for much of the first 45. The half time score was 1-0 but Inter's dominance was evident and goals would surely be coming if they kept the pressure up. Straight from the whistle D4N's men wer on the front foot, Hatem Ben Arfa rattling the post from 25 yards, would have been a magnificent goal. A goal was coming and it wasn't long before it did, Alan Dzagoev linking up with van Persie, the Dutchmans return flick was sublime and all Dzagoev had left to do was strike the ball past the keeper. He did just that and the score was level once again. Federico Balzaretti picked up a caution for a rash challenge on Davide Moscardelli. Inter's number 3 was lucky not to get his marching orders there, he needs to discipline himself and control emotions as he has already seen red against Juventus this season. The score was still 1-1 going into stoppage time, the 4th official signalled 3 minutes of added time and Inter made the most of it. Robin van Persie played a part again as Pasquato made a run in behind. Andrea Pirlo fresh off the bench lofted a ball up field and van Persie knocked it into the path of Pasquato off his chest. The Italalian number 77 got the ball under control and guided it past the keeper at the near post. Inter take all 3 points with seconds remaining.
MAN OF THE MATCH: van Persie
RVP made both goals in his sides win at Chievo
Inter loose in Germany
An 83rd minute strike from Jefferson Farfán gave FC Schalke 04 a goal advantage to take to the San Siro next week. D4N's men seemed in control and had contained the Germans well but a lapse in concentration saw Farfán get in and nick a goal. The tie is by no means over and Inter will be chomping at the bit come the start of the second leg.
"Disappointed with the goal to be honest. We had been so organised defensively and that slight lapse let the lad in. At this level that's all it takes. In an ideal world a goal here would have been a bonus but they wer equally as organised as us and proved tough to break down. Make no mistake we are still right in this semi final, but we will need to be at our best next week." - Inter boss, D4N speaking after the game.
Europa League - Semi-Final - First Leg
Schalke 1-0 Inter
Schalke travel to Milan next week with a 1 goal advantage, and will be looking to see out another 90 minutes with out conceding. Inter will be expected to produce more opportunities than they did tonight with Jefferson Farfán's goal really one of the rare chances at goal for either team. Not much to talk about through out the 90, both teams wer very organised and compact. Andrea Pirlo was doing his best to find the killer passes in the final 3rd but the defence was too organised and the forwards wer caught offside on a few occasions. The goal came when Inter tried to play the offside trap. Former Inter midfielder, Wesley Sneijder unlocked the defense with a through ball to winger, Jefferson Farfán. Roderick and Astori both stepped up in time but both full backs, Santon and Debuchy played Farfán onside. Ruffier came out and did his best to put the player off but it wasn't to be and he struck the ball into the bottom corner. 1-0 was the final score going into the second leg.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Pirlo
Pirlo played a big part in midfield against Schalke
In the other semi-final, Manchester City beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield. The reds did take the lead, Steven Gerrard played in Luis Suarez after taking the ball off Samir Nasri the Uraguyan chipped an advancing Joe Hart to take the lead. Man City responded with a goal from Sergio Aguero and a goal in the 79th minute from Edin Dzeko. 2 away goals for Man City leaving Liverpool with a mountain to climb at the Eitihad next week.
Semi-Final - First leg results
FC Schalke 04 1 - 0 FC Internazionale
Liverpool FC 1 - 2 Manchester City
Lucio Testimonial Confirmed
A Testimonial will take place at the San Siro on July 27th against former club, Bayern Munich to celebrate the career of our retiring skipper, Lucio. The game will involve some current players and a few old ones. Lucio announced his retirement shortly after the start of the current season. When D4N was appointed manager of Inter in July 2011 one of his first moves was to install Lucio as skipper. The Brazillian has been captain ever since.

CHELTENHAM TOWN FC
2014-15 Season Review
Following a successful 2013-14 campaign saw Cheltenham take the nPower League Two title by storm, the step up to League One was met by the players with a surprising enthusiasm following a bold prediction by the media that the Robins had all the ingredients required to mount a back-to-back promotion challenge.
Manager Gary Kinnock played down any talk of a sudden change in the side's fortunes. Kinnock's first two seasons in charge met with playoff failure before the inspired signing of Danny Hollands stepped the side up a level. Whether the captain would be enough to bring the side forwards in League One remained to be seen.
A key to Cheltenham's success was the variety of goalscorers on offer in the side, and while this often meant no one striker would threaten the golden boot, 5 Robins players finished the season with a scoring tally in double figures. 22 year old Sergio Araujo continued to mature into a striker who, on his day, was far too good for this league, and finished the season with 18 goals, followed by Victor Parrela and Joe Ralls on 13, Asad Siham on 12 and Kaid Mohamed on 10.
Cheltenham suffered once more at the hands of late injury crisis. £1.3m signing Andros Townsend suffered a nasty broken leg in February that ended his season, captain Stephen Harney sustained knee ligament damage and Joe Ralls succumbed again to his recurring cruciate problem. As such, Cheltenham's healthy lead in the title race slipped away from them, leading to a tense final day as they found themselves in a 3 way fight for the title.
Anything less than a win for Cheltenham would leave them to the lottery of the playoffs, while they also relied on results going against their competitors. Wednesday faced the away fixture of the Sheffield derby, a match they could very easily lose, while Barnsley made the trip away to midtable Exeter, Cheltenham hosted already relegated Bradford at Whaddon Road.
Exeter City 1-1 Barnsley
As the whistle blew at Whaddon Road, fans didn't celebrate, turning straight to their phones and the electronic scoreboards for the results from the other matches. Some were celebrating a likely promotion, as neither Barnsley nor Sheffield Wednesday had been winning at half time, but when the realisation hit that the title was theirs, the crowd went wild.
They were back to back title winners, and Cheltenham Town were into the Championship.
"Lana, look! He thinks he's people!"

FC Internazionale vs. A.C Milan
It's that time again, derby della Madonnina is upon us and all around the City of Milan the talk of the town is this football game. In the reverse fixture earlier on in the season Inter came out on top with a 2-1 win, goals from Welliton and Diego Milito won the points that day. Both Milan clubs have had a different contrast of seasons this year, with Inter challenging at the top and Milan having slipped down as far as 8th but their current league position is 6th. Whatever happens, League position and past results have virtually no effect on this tie with both sides battling it out for the bragging rights of the city.
Milito scored the winner in the first derby of the season last October
Both teams are going into this fixture off the back of a win in Serie A, Inter went to Chievo in the last match and won 2-1 whereas Milan hosted Sampdoria and cruised to a 3-0 victory. One things for sure both sides will be fighting from the 1st minute to the last as is always the case in the della Madonnina. Both managers had their say on the season so far and tomorrows game earlier on in the week.
"The season has been mixed so far for us. We wer particularly disappointed with our premature involvement in the Coppa Nazionale. To go out at the stage we did was dis heartening but by no means any disrespect to Reggina. They wer the better side and deserved to go through. The league season has been a roller-coaster, we have had some good results, in particular at Juventus and in the corresponding fixture with Milan. And we've had some bad ones, the game against Napoli was the toughest for me since Ive been in the job, the importance of that game, in terms of the title race was astronomical and yet one silly decision cost us. We are still well with in a chance at a European final though and we are still chasing Napoli for the runner up spot so the season has to be considered a success if we achieve those goals. Up next it's the Milan derby. Always a momentous occasion with the ground packed to the rafters and the atmosphere is indescribable. You can never predict the out come of a football match, but you certainly can't predict the out come of a Milan derby." - Inter boss, D4N
"Ive already gone on record as saying that this season has been a disappointing one to say the least. Last season we finished high up the table but this season we have lost quality and slipped up a bit. After doing so well in the Milan derbies last season we have lost 1 this time and we are going to put that right tomorrow. The players are determined to go out and win the points against Inter tomorrow, it's up to them to go and show it." - AC Milan boss, Massimiliano Allegri
A hint of arrogance detected in the words from Massimiliano Allegri will only spice up what is already set to be a fiery derby. Heres how we think both sides will line up.
Inter will be at full strength tomorrow other than the absense of Welliton, Cristian Pasquato and Robin van Persie are expected to lead the line. 4-4-2 is expected to be the formation tomorrow, somthing that has served D4N well this season.
Milan are more than likley to adopt a 4-3-3 against Inter in a bid to out number them upfield. Niang has been in particular good form and has covered for the injured Carlos Tevez well so he will be a threat.
Alan Hansen's view
Everyone has now had their say, its time for the football to do the talking and the eagerly anticipated encounter will kick off tomorrow afternoon at 4pm a match update will follow the final whistle.

D4N to Return for Zárate
Inter Milan boss, D4N plans to challenge Genoa's resolve with a huge bid for striker Mauro Zárate in the summer. D4N had a bid rejected for the Argenitine last summer and turned his attentions to van Persie after the deal with Edinson Cavani (Napoli) fell through.
It's thought that D4N will not be taking up the option of a permanent transfer on van Persie as he has suffered with injury and hasn't really found the net as much as D4N thought he would. Mauro Zárate spent D4N's first season in charge, at Inter on loan from then parent club Lazio. Zárate scored 22 goals in 35 appearances for Inter that season, but a deal could not be struck at the end of the loan. Zárate has since moved to Genoa and is rumored to be unhappy at the club. Prompting D4N to piece together an escape route for the player.

Bale relishing the prospect of playing in the della Madonnina
Gareth Bale flew back to London during the International break, to do some promotion work for Adidas (his main sponsor). Our number 14 was at Adidas HQ where he answered Questions from fans that had been posted on Twitter. Here we have selected our 10 favorites.
@_Sam_Lansbury (Spurs Fan)
Gareth, do you miss Spurs Lodge? and how are you finding Serie A?
"I do miss Spurs, i made some great friends there but in football you always have to be aware that circumstances change and i'm loving life in Milan at the moment. Serie A is a competitive league, i have to be honest i didn't expect it to be as quick as it is but i'm really enjoying my football as well."
@_Fiona10Carlise (Spurs Fan)
How did it feel to score against Arsenal in the Europa League? I celebrated that goal like you where wearing a Spurs shirt again.
"(laughs) It was special, it always is when you score but that goal was my best moment yet in an Inter shirt. We wer winning the game comfortably but my goal put us back in front on aggregate i think, and what made it extra special was it was knocking Arsenal out as a former Spurs player that always feels good."
@_1nt3r_mafia (Inter Fan)
How are you looking forward to the upcoming, della Madonnina? (Milan derby)
"I cannot wait to play against AC Milan. I loved playing Arsenal whilst at Spurs and this will be no different in terms of my passion for the result. Obviously the fixture is draped in history and with both clubs sharing a stadium it will be different in that respect as really there is no home or away side. If im picked ill give my all as i always do to help the team to 3 points."
derby della Madonnina is always a momentous occasion.

Is there any possibility you may return to Premier League in the future?
"Anythings possible in football, but for now i'm an Inter player and i'm really enjoying it there. The manager is top class and the players work for one and other. But who knows what the future holds."
@_Intersupporters (Inter Fan Group)
Does the transfer fee Inter paid to Spurs, sometimes way heavy on your shoulders?
"No not really. The manager has shown his faith in me and believes I'm good enough, that's all i think about to be honest. The money exchanged between the two clubs is never really in my mind, I just go out and perform to the best of my ability."
@_Kane_Spurs4Life (Spurs Fan)
I have been watching Inter closely since you joined them and you already have 4 goals, Do you think it's easier to score in Italy than it was in England?
"I have scored 4 that's right but i perhaps would not have scored them if not for my team mates. When i look around whilst waiting for the whistle, sometimes i think, what a team we have. There are world beaters all over the pitch at this club and as a wide man if you look across at the midfield and you see the likes of Pirlo, Cabaye and Dzagoev with Gatain or Ben Arfa over the other side then upfront we have Welliton, Milito, van Persie and Pasquato it makes your life easier and you get more opportunities in front of goal. Couple that with who we have behind us, really there is not a lot you have to worry about."
@_NoelGallagher (Man CIty Fan)
I heard you turned down a move to City, how come?
"Haha putting me on the spot now. Yeah Man City did give me an offer as did a few other clubs across Europe but at Inter, the manager made me feel wanted and he really sold the club to me. The chance to play at Inter doesn't come round very often as a professional. So my mind was made up, and i'm glad i made the right decision."
@_Jack_Livermore (Spurs Player)
Gazza, we miss whooping you on FIFA get your backside down here once you've finished this?
"(laughs) He's a wind up merchant isn't he. (laughs) Yeah Jack ill be down to teach you all a lesson."
@_Amedeo-Welliton-Magnifico (Inter Fan)
What has been your proudest moment so far since joining Inter? Forza Inter!
"My proudest moment has to be my first goal against Juventus. It was a relief to score then to ad a second against last seasons Champions as well, It was a fantastic result and i was immensely proud to have played a part that day."
@_Nerazzurri-till-death (Inter Fan)
How do you see your Inter future mapped out?
"Hopefully my future will be decorated with lots of winners medals. I have a 4 year contract at Inter and for those 4 years at least, i hope to have won many trophies."
Thanks for taking the time to answer those questions Gareth from everyone at Adidas.com
Inter, the season so far
We are heading into the business end of the season now and with only 8 games remaining in Serie A and going into the second leg of a Europa League semi-final we take a look at how the season has progressed to this stage.
We have a few new faces in the team since last season with the likes of, Debuchy, Roderick, Douglas, Balzaretti, Thorgan Hazard, Cabaye, Bale, van Persie, Airton & Pasquato all joining in the summer and in January. We have also seen some youth players come up through the academy, Erik van de Laak and Daniel Borghese. So the manager and staff behind the scenes have worked extremely hard to achieve their targets.
Since D4N's appointment in July 2011, silverware has seemed elusive but with each season their has been improvement. Following the sacking of former Manager, Claudio Ranieri in May 2011, after failing to finish in a European spot. Then Inter, President, Massimo Moratti appointed the inexperienced D4N. In his first campaign in charge D4N took Inter back up to 5th in Serie A and back into European competition. The 2012/2013 season had significant improvement with Inter finishing 4th in Serie A and wer beaten semi-finalists in both the Europa League and the Coppa Italia. This season (2013/2014) however, D4N has taken Inter back where they belong in the Hunt for the title. Although it may seem gone at this stage, mathematically Inter can still finish 1st so D4N will want his side to be picking up all the points available.
Serie A ,top 4 as it stands:
Inter's most recognised win this season would be the 4-2 win over Juventus at the San Siro. The Champions had an almighty shock that day with D4N's Inter playing at their best.
Maico has a go against Juve.
Inter have been prolific in front of goal this term with star striker, Welliton hitting 29 goals in Serie A so far. The Brazillian is out injured at the moment but has ran away with the golden boot award in the goal standings.
Serie A Leader Board (Top Goal Scorer)
1. Welliton - 29 goals(Inter)
2. Quagliarella - 19 goals (Juve)
3. Gomez - 18 goals (Catania)
4. Pasquato - 15 goals (Inter)
5. Cavani - 15 goals (Napoli)
Welliton has ran away with the gong this year with still a few games left. When the Brazilian returns from injury I'm sure he'll be back to finding the net again on a regular basis.
"First name on the team sheet for me. He's been prolific since he joined. He's scored 85 league goals already, that's just in the league. Welly cost us £30,000,000 from Spartak Mosow and he's more than proved his worth. He's ripped opposing defences apart all season and I'm sure other managers dread seeing him on the team sheet." - Inter boss, D4N
Serie A Leader Board (Most Assists)
1. Marchisio - 17 assists (Juve)
2. Dzagoev - 15 assists (Inter)
3. Pirlo - 14 assists (Inter)
4. Modric - 12 assists (Juve)
5. Robinhio - 10 assists (Milan)
Claudio Marchisio leads the list for most assists this season with Inter's Alan Dzagoev and Andrea Pirlo breathing down his kneck. Pirlo stands out for me as he is not a fixture in the squad for D4N but his rate for creating chances is second to none and always healthy to have in your armoury.
"All the midfielders have contributed to goals this season. Obviously Dzagoev and Pirlo stand out but the creation of chances has been superb this year, just hope the lads keep it up." - Inter boss, D4N
