Gilly, Kidulthood.

I first became a fan of Inter in 1998. It was a World Cup year and at the time Simeone was captain of both Argentina & Inter. I've loved Inter ever since.

I do believe Moratti not having control of the team has to do with some of our losses but it is much more than that. Inter are going through big changes at every aspect of the club. Erik Thohir now runs the club, for the first time since 1995 Zanetti will not be in the squad, though he is still with the club as Vice President. The time for Milito, Cambiasso & Samuel to leave the club has come in most people's opinion. In my eyes I would have held onto Cambiasso for another year or two.

Inter have always had a rich history of Argentinos in the club and it always will. At the beginning of preseason we had 6 Argentinos (8 if you include Silvestre & Schelotto). Now, we are down to 4.

Silvestre (voiced his desire for an Italy call up rather than Argentina) - loaned to Sampdoria

Schelotto (Buenos Aires born but capped by Italy) - loaned to Chievo Verona

Ruben Botta - loaned to Chievo Verona

Ricardo Alvarez - loaned to Sunderland with obligation to buy

That leaves Inter with 4 Argentinos... Palacio, Icardi, Campagnaro & Carrizo. Palacio is a key player for Inter. Icardi has been great the short time he has been with the club. His services are desired elsewhere but I expect him to stay. Campagnaro is rumoured to leave but time is running out. He isn't a starter but a depth player anyhow. Carrizo is a solid number 2 GK for the club.

Lavezzi is a name that has been linked with Inter for the last few transfer windows. It is highly unlikely we will see him in an Inter shirt this window or even in January but the idea is there. It is a dream of mine to be honest. They did bring in Pablo Osvaldo (another Argentino capped by Italy) but that doesn't count for me.

I agree that it isn't the same as it once was but the club is going through many changes. I fully expect Inter to keep bringing in Argentinos and keep the history going. The last time there wasn't an Argentino in the squad was 1994. Then Moratti signed Zanetti and we all know the rest from there.

I have a twitter account dedicated to the Argentinos of Internazionale: @Argentalia90

Gilly: Thanks..It seems like the new owner is going into a different direction with the club.Unfortunately we are likely to see less of our players at Inter Milan.

@elpipita: you're right, we just have to wait and see what the future holds for Inter Milan..

@Messicrew Lamela excels most when he's playing his natural role i.e. an enganche, that's how he plied his trade at River so I can easily see him behind messi or besides him in a 4-4-1-1 or a 4-4-2 respectively. And don't forget that Coco has excelled as a forward so he may very well replace either kun or pipita in the future or even act as a backup for Messi.
With a player that talented the sky is the limit really.

I really hope that Vietto, Icardi and particularly Ferryera (played along side Lamela and Iturbe in the U20 WC so they already have an established chemistry) do well because I'm with the rest of you in thinking that pipita and particularly kun need to be benched and would have to regain their starting status by working their butts off.

@Kid don't be too harsh on Inter because after all they are a business organization like any other and they need to do what they see fit to succeed.
The previous Argentine group and Inter have benefited each other greatly but that group's time is up and now it's up to the next gen (Icardi and Botta) to prove that Argentina still has plenty of talent to give.

Kid, there is Juan Pablo Carizzo (reserve GK who'll rather never play ahead of Handanovic) apart from the names u took - Icardi, Palacio and Campanagro. Wall has already left and joined Basel, Cambiasso was unceremoniously "released" after 10 faithful years - he has joined Leicester (??!!) , Botta is loaned to Chievo, Milito free transfer to Racing and ofcourse JZ4 retired.

Now, this means there is a complete mind shift Inter are experiencing in terms of Argentineans in their team. This is hard to accept for a fan like me who has been following them for more than 15 years purely because they have been "pro Argentina" always. I believe it has got to do with the ownership change at Inter with Moratti family giving up the ownership to Indonesia based Erik Thohir who believes in Europeans more , may be ... But whatever it is , Inter is definitely going down too much on Argentina flavor for my liking as well.

Inter Milan is becoming far less pro Argentinian for my liking...They sign Hernandez when they already had Ricky Alvarez..Cambiasso left, Campagrano is likely out too, Samuel will be on his way out, and last but not least, Zanetti retired..So what's left?Palacio, Icardi and Botta? Palacio is probably on his last season with Inter Milan..

Can someone please tell me who are the other active Argentinian players at Inter besides Palacio, Icardi and Botta?

With Icardi up front, I think we would need Messi + any 2 of Pastore, Di maria, Gaitan & Lamela to be playing behind him, because he needs to be fed constantly to score. If he can maintain a good strike rate, hecan even start ahead of Higuain in future.

If Icardi & Vietto can keep their form going with Zarate & Ferreyra doing well too, we will be able to create serious competition for Higuain & Kun and Palacio's slot has to be taken by someone anyways!

I am also waiting for Angel Correa to come back from his surgery. But after a heart surgery, he may not be the same player. I think we can't really consider him for Copa 2015.

Italian league is definitely at a low point...but not for Argentines.

We throw around these media generated phrases...EPL is the BEST..."La Liga is a 2 team league" "German League is a One team league"

Its sadly a very generalized and inaccurate assessment. Italy and Italians are in crisis but Italian league also lost its Financial power. Italian League is like that cool kid everybody in school used to really like until another cool kid came along lol

I was never into this silly "which league is the best" nonsense that the current generation of media pushes.

Outside the financial aspect if you look past the hype etc if EPL is judged the same way Italian League is judged by their national team and players performance (Which is also wrong).

I saw someone say the EPL tends to bulk up our players...this is another area which I think is also harmful. Augero etc becomes "Stronger" but loses the Argentine traits among others.....this is just my humble opinion and I am SURE ppl will disagree.

Majority of the people here where the same people that said Di Maria was ..."a headless chicken" for Argentina and now shower him with praise. We must not be so black and white in our assessment of players.
Alvarez style of play is more suited to La Liga or Serie A but....like most Argentines he will adapt to what in MY opinion is a very one dimensional league in terms of style of play. I think he will struggle and if the english media doesn't tear him apart (Argentines are not given much room for error in EPL) he will be fine.

Everton or Totenham? As far as I can tell, these teams are not much better than Sunderland..Most of the BPL teams are on the same level except maybe for Man City and Chelsea, who are a cut above the other 18 teams in the league..Everton and Spurs have not won anything significant like forever to be consider as option if Ricky decides to move on from Sunderland..

If Ricky is that good, he will be a stand out performer at Sunderland and will be picked up by at least a team like Everton or Tottenham. Let him play at Sunderland, lets see if he is bigger than Sunderland. Tevez played like crazy for West Ham and got picked by Man Utd. So lets see what Ricky can offer to Sunderland.

Tevez and Mascherano two of Argentina biggest players coming out of the country at the time, ended up at West Ham of all places..If anyone had said to me during that time that West Ham would sign both Masche and Tevez, I would have laugh at them..Sometimes we have to be humble in life in order to reach great heights..

Speaking of Argentine league... I think Maxi Rodriguez will last a bit longer than most people think considering how well he plays currently with Newell's. He's basically their best striker...

Vlaar an Aston Villa player who represent the Netherlands at this summer world cup is a prime example that it's not what club you play for, its the heart you show for your national team..Vlaar was one of the world cup better defenders..Guzman was a Swansea player at the time he was playing for Netherlands at the world cup.

I like these moves, everyone can't play for so call ''BIG'' clubs..This is where it goes bad for a national team when everyone thinks they're bigger than their national team set up due to their club prominence in world football.

Majority of Real, Barca, Chelsea, Man City etc players struggled at this summer world cup..In fact, most of these players from these clubs performed the worse at this year summer world cup, even our own Aguero..For me, Diego Costa and Fred were the worse strikers at the world cup.

Guys we tend to get stuck up too much with the Barca and Real of this world..And Atlety is no BIG club..Just look what will happen as soon as Simeone leaves the club..I agree Atlety have been hot under Simeone, but they're not regarded as one of Europe prestige clubs..Even Ajax FC is a bigger club than Atlety historically speaking..Better yet, Valencia is a bigger club than Atlety..

This is how I look at things. I would love for all Argentinian players in Europe to come home and play in the Argentina Premier division.

KidultHood.. agreed with you on this. While the EPL doesn't suit a lot of our players, Poyet is a good enough to expand Alvarez's skill sets and hopefully will put him in position to succeed; and is a definite step up from Italy. Like Lamela, he'll be challenged.

I only dislike it when our strikers go to the EPL. B/c like Tevez and now Aguero, they add so much bulk to their wirey frames that they lose what makes them Argentinean.

Am really interested to see how Fazio does. If he holds his own, he can grab the open slot next to Garay for the NT.

Gus Poyet (who is Sunderland coach)is Uruguayan so I doubt Ricky will have problem working under him..Vergini is already at Sunderland and he's holding his own thus far...

Italian league is in poor shape, and if folks here can't see that then they're in denial..First the Italian national team has now gone out in the group stage in back to back world cups..Serie A teams have been struggling in the UCL for several season now..Serie A is now below the Portuguese league according to the UEFA league rankings..So yes, Serie A is on a down ward spiral..I'm not saying Inter, Juve and Roma etc are not good teams, its just that Serie A is not a good look at this point...With the poor stadiums, lack of money, corruption, racism etc, haven't help Serie A over the years..

Look I was never a fan of the BPL, I only got interested in the league with the influx of Argentinian players moving there..I want to see our players go to England and dominate the league no matter the club they represent.

Awesome news. I have started to watch more EPL thanks to the NBC deal, and I could only enjoy Man City thanks to El Kun and Zabaleta. I watched Tottenham only to see Lamela. I was impressed with their lineup.

Alavez to BPL is ....not a move I wanted
I really like him as a player and I think Inter getting rid of him is a BAAAD idea.

With the new plans for Inter Ricky would be perfect.
Saying Italian league is dead is something I strongly disagree with....It is definitely NOT as powerful as it used to be...but it serves Argentine players well.

Unless its Under Pochettino, Pellegrini, Wenger maybe Jose they would just try to turn him into an English styled player which as wel all know is such a wonderful thing (sarcasm)

In all honesty I was hoping that the rumours of him going to Atletico were true because he's just the type of player that Simeone likes, skillful yet hardworking.
The EPL can be quite destructive for South American midfielders as we've seen with Paulino, Yacob and even Oscar whose form dropped considerably even before the WC started.
I just hope that Sunderland take advantage of Ricky's skills and play him where he's most effective (no.10) unlike Mazzari who inexplicably placed him in central midfield position, which pretty much killed his game.
