Serie A preview – AC Milan will need to fight

AC Milan didn’t exactly have a disappointing season, they just didn’t achieve much. And while the team is full of very old players (remember Oddo?), there is a project in place, this project starts with Allegri, a new, relatively young, and attacking coach. While maybe this upcoming season might not […]

Serie A Preview – Genoa Aims for European Success

Italy’s oldest soccer club finished a disappointing ninth last season, and the management has made it clear this offseason that such a result is unacceptable.  Disappointing play by a number of key players left the club outside the top six, one year after qualifying for the UEFA Cup and two years […]

8 of Serie A’s best prospects

Seeing a young Roberto Baggio, Ronaldinho, or Fabregas is always exciting, but noticing young players which in 5 years can become one of the world’s best is rare. With Serie A’s relative downfall compared to other European leagues, it’s time to find some new stars, starting from these eight prospects: 1. Phillippe Coutinho (Inter […]

Genoa reinforce with Miguel Veloso

Genoa are a club with high ambitions, and it’s been shown this transfer market that they want to contend for a Champions League spot with big name arrivals. It’s Genoa president Enrico Preziosi who continues to revitalize the club with intelligent signings like Diego Milito and Thiago Motta from last […]

Buffon returns in 2011

Buffon has been troubled by his back for just about three years, and when he had to pull out of the World Cup just 45 minutes in the first match, it was time for Buffon to get an operation. Buffon was operated in Milan because of his herniated disc and […]

Genoa have Felipe but think about Eduardo

Genoa have plenty of options for their search for a keeper, while they’ve practically sealed the deal with the Corinthians keeper Felipe, they could be rethinking their plans a little bit. This is thanks to the new rule on player transfers which could hit Serie A teams, reducing the slots […]

Seven Keys to the AS Roma-AC Milan Match

The most anticipated match-up of the weekend is the AS Roma-AC Milan contest to decide which club can challenge Inter for the top spot in Serie A.  While the loser still has an outside shot at the scudetto, an Inter victory over Genoa would make it a tough task. Rather […]

Manchester United's Defensive Solution

One player highly thought of and sought after is Bari defender Andrea Ranocchia, who is one of the hottest defensive prospects currently plying his trade in Europe. Manchester United seen particularly interested along with cross town rivals Manchester City and Chelsea. The 21 year-old, Italy under 21 international has been […]

Lessons Learned from Giornata 20

After this weekend’s action, the eyes of Italy will be on its largest metropolitan city.  The Milan derby could move AC Milan within striking distance of first or could help Inter Milan put some distance between itself and its rival.  And the two clubs are approaching this game from opposite […]

Lessons Learned from Giornata 18

Like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, Italian soccer has returned to our airwaves, and this week’s matches saw the return of David Beckham, the goal of the year, and some good calcio as well.  As reports roll in of players leaving Italy in transfers, the question is […]

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.  […]

Lessons Learned from Giornata 14

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 […]

Lessons Learned From Giornata 6

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 […]

Champions League Play-Off: What's Your Opinion?

The Premier League could soon implement a plan that sees its fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh place finishers contest an end-of-season play-off at Wembley to determine England’s fourth Champions League contestant. At first blush, the plan seems rather appealing as further excitement would be added to season’s end while allowing […]
