Inter hit statistics and point tallies not seen since the Treble campaign, but Antonio Conte and the fans were still frustrated at second place, writes Richard Hall.
Inter's great expectations
Inter didn’t just improve, they amassed as many points as Jose Mourinho’s Treble-winning team of 2010 and climbed from fourth place to second. To understand expectations, one has to look back and in this case that was to the season preview, written by myself. This way one can truly comprehend just how the feeling was back in September, what was hoped for and just what Conte said he would do. This was to improve on last year, finish in the top three, show signs of good football and offering consistency. One would have to say he achieved that.
