2-0 at home over Werder, and 3-1, 5-1 over Anderlecht, Valencia, these are excellent, excellent results where Inter did not let up. Why then, is there such a problem finishing matches in Serie A? Out of the 7 draws in Serie A, Inter led by a goal at one point in 5 of them, and led by 2 goals in 2 of them. 3 of the draws came at home to teams in the bottom half of the tables. I can't seem to put a finger on it, there is so much talent up front and you would think 17 goals in 9 matches would lead to a higher spot in the standings. Obviously though, the problem lies in defense, where only 2 teams have yielded more goals than Inter. Our defense was very solid under Cuper 2 years ago, how have we slipped so far, so fast? Are Toldo, Zanetti, and Cordoba that much off their games? I think the focus has been on bringing in attacking players to the detriment of the defense. Our backline keeps getting older, without adding much quality new blood. Sadly, I think a Real Madrid type mindset is really hurting our club. Attacking soccer will work well in the UCL, but in Italy, defense is at a premium.
