Lessons Learned From Giornata 15

The Derby d’Italia Is a Match Not to Miss The goals were impressive.  The fans were incredibly creative with their chanting and thankfully not offensive.  The players were obviously emotional invested in the match, as it was stopped briefly late in the second half for a scuffle among the players.  […]

The best way to sum up the action this past weekend is more of the same.  The top 4 remain the top 4 (with one switch) and those looking in danger of relegation still look in danger of relegation.  However, a few major lessons were learned this week on (and […]

Two words to describe this weekend’s action: low scoring.  No team scored more than 2 goals during their match, and the highest combined goal total was 3 (Napoli’s 2-1 win over Siena).  However, a more appropriate word may be clarity, as we now can begin to see more clearly the […]
