How in the world can we be talking about a crisis here? The team has played three games in two competitions and has yet to play well, a fact that should make Coach Roberto Mancini somewhat happy, because Inter is none the worse for wear in either competition. A draw away to high-flying Roma tomorrow could be all the defending champion needs to steady the course. Follow that with back-to-back home wins against Chievo Verona and Bayern Munich in the Champions League and all of sudden Inter will be favored for a league and European double. However, if the rumor mill as interpreted by the Guardian's James Richardson is to be believed, Inter boss Mancini could be headed for an early exit from the San Siro.

Now that transfer season is over, Richardson says not to be surprised if Mancini fails to survive another string of sub-par performances. And guess who tops Inter's replacement list?
