      “The ignorance from some of these people is astounding”-Craig Burley. I know what they said about inter is dumb, but cmon, he’s one of the most ignorant pundits on the entire panel

          Check your facts about Gedson regarding his adaptation to a new country. His family lives in UK for some time now, he should have a pretty smooth adaptation

                  F off burley you chejsea Rent boy. I’m sure you’d say chejsea were bigger wouldn’t you. Even though Chelsea were on the level of Fulham in the early 90s

                    Eriksen is likely to stay until end of season.

                    Why would inter pay £20m when they can pay nothing.

                        Oh please steve, Inter dont have an endless money to spend
                        Eriksen already agree to sign in summer with inter, that give leverage for inter to negotiate with spurs
                        Not being cheap but managing the budget so Inter can cover another position that need strengthening
                        Imo spurs will accept 15 - 17 m with some bonus deal (so spurs will get what their want 20 m for eriksen)

                          I do wonder if the Burley and Nicol actually watch 90 mins of a game instead of talking rubbish. Not just talking about this segment but on their usual drivel. Sorry ESPN can you pick some better analysts

                            dude you are the real ignorant, inter its bigger in history but as a club in the present day its weaker than tothenam, the proof of that its that inter cant go trought the group stages of the champions league and another example its Lazio thats is doing a super seasson in Italy and in the europa league is weaker than turkish teams lol Overrated its the word for alot of teams in europe LOL English teams and spanish teams are superior to all

                                Well Inter got knocked out by Spurs in UCL.
                                Inter are relegated to UEL again this year.
                                Inter might be doing better but Spurs are definitely a bigger attraction than Inter

                                            People questioning Inter as they haven't been good for years bar this year and Serie A doesn't get the plaudits because it isn't competitive.. Eriksen will have a good time playing in that league and look good doing so but when Conte leaves Inter in a few years I'm not sure he will be at a very good team at all with maybe zero trophies also

                                                    Skriniar, De Vrij, Godin and Bastoni (Who Is a fantastic young kid, playing Better than Godin and replaced home in the starting 11), I don't see manu Better defences in the world.
                                                    Brozovic Sensi and Barella are fantastic togheter and relatively young, we Need some more for rotatining the starting team and where Eriksen gets in.
                                                    In front we have Lukaku (Who Is playing the right way with Conte) Lautare Martinez, the most talented young striker in the world Alexis Sanchez and probably Olivier Giroud Is coming. We are strungling only on the wings but for dire se are a Better side than Chelsea and Leicester. Third spot in England would be out position in the standings.
                                                    P.s. pur manager really makes the difference

                                                  Inter being “bigger” is irrelevant. United are bigger Than city and still “irrelevant”, inter hasn’t been relevant for years and currently sitting in Europa league and in a title race with a poor Juventus side. Spurs are a better team with a brighter future than inter. But Erik should still go he’s awful now

                                                    WasIst Passiert ? Spurs were named the richest club in London? The 7th highest revenue in the world. They have one of the best stadiums of Europe. and Jose is only here because levy said he will get a big backing which means big spending.

                                                    Inter can’t compete with spurs financially at this point. And at this point I’d say spurs has a better team than inter, Kane, Son, Moura, Alli, Loris, Alder, Ndombele, Celso, would walk into inters 11.

                                                    Also Barca plays in the 2nd best league in the world who just sacked their manager when he’s 1st. SerieA is a farmers league and a title means very little outside of Italy.

                                                    And the season is far from over.

                                                    @Veyron And the 4th one ( Chelsea) can afford to lose 3 games too. Spurs have 14 matches to catch on Chelsea, plus the fact that in that 14 matches they can't afford to slip any further. And they have to play again Liverpool, City so forth and so forth.

                                                    I dont see no bright future for spurs. Probably will get knocked out in champions league in round of 16 if not quarters.

                                                    You say this about europa league but we both know spurs aint getting top 4 this season.

                                                    So, then next season it's no title race & europa league.

                                                    Vs. A title race, competing for europa league & next season champions league.

                                                      The issue is that the municipality of Milan owns San Siro and is both the Milano clubs landlord. The same municipality has the right to grant and decline any building of a new stadium. The efforts Inter has tried latest couple of years both together with AC Milan and themselves to build a own stadium, has not gone forward. That even with a mayor supporting Inter Milan as a fan. Moratti has tried for years from the 90's until he sold the club to build a new stadium, and the new owners has tried as well. They owners are wealthy and want to invest, the club has managed to adapt to UEFA FFP regulations financially. But currently it's the city of Milan stopping any building of a new stadium.

Winning EPL is like winning 4 Champions League now the EPL the 17th place team makes more that about ever team in UCL. EPL is the biggest league unless you sign for a bigger EPL team or Barca, Real or Bayern. History has 0 meaning it is the past means nothing in sport only now does. Thinking any other way removes your own greatness. MJ vs LBJ perfect example one chased greatness the other was greatness. Great player and athletes don't chase history they write their own greatness and do not care for the past they believe they are greater than history. That is how you become MJ or Brady.
