Andrea Stramaccioni is hoping Inter Milan's recent resurgence proves president Massimo Moratti "didn't do something crazy" when he appointed him in March.

Inter won their seventh successive game in all competitions and their eighth on the trot away from the San Siro, a 3-1 victory at Bologna which moved them up to third in the Serie A table.

And Stramaccioni believes Moratti's decision to promote him from youth team boss to first team coach is now paying off.

He told inter.it: "I'm trying to do my part. I'm proud of being the Inter coach. When a team wins eight away matches it's a sign of unity. It means that we're focused and motivated.

"I'm trying to show that the president didn't do something completely crazy."

Andrea Ranocchia gave the visitors the lead in the 27th minute at Bologna before Diego Milito added a second just after the half-time break.

Nicolo Cherubin replied immediately, but Esteban Cambiasso scored his first goal of the season minutes later to seal the points and keep Inter four points behind table-toppers Juventus.

"We struggled at the start of both halves and Bologna showed a lot of spirit, but I liked what I saw from Inter," added Stramaccioni.

"We were solid and organised and gave little away from open play. We got surprised only on that one corner when they scored.

"We're moving forward and I'm pleased with this progress."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
