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 […]

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 […]

Rossi Named to Italian National Team

Marcello Lippi announced the provisional Italian national team roster today on the FIGC website (official website notice here, Goal.com English summary here).  Few controversies were expected, as the Italian squad won the last World Cup and looked to return most of that roster.  There were however a few items of […]

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 […]

Lessons Learned from Giornata 21

A nice quiet weekend in Serie A.  Fortunately, there were no matches of interest and no controversy that came out of the matches.  Nothing unusual or interesting at all. Or not.  In a weekend highlighted by the top two squads facing off, injuries to star players, and an odd mask […]

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 […]

Counting Down To Transfer Madness

It’s only days away from the opening of the transfer window — a time when much cash will be splashed and many sides will be re-shaped and benches re-inforced. Because there can be some major impact signings, I am waiting to analyze the match-ups in the Champions League Round of […]

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 […]

ONE YEAR TO GO: Will World Champs or World Chumps be flying to South Africa?

To fans of Calcio it’s still as vivid as ever: The vision of Fabio Cannavaro lifting the World Cup aloft remains the proudest of Italian memories in a difficult recent history. But with one year to go before the 19th World Cup Final, Cannavaro and his Azzurri have a lot […]

What's Rising

AC Milan = American Club Milan?

As always, it pays to take all off-season transfer rumors with a grain of salt.  But one rumor within the realm of possibility suggest a move of pure genius by the Rossoneri. Yahoo Sports is reporting that Fulham star and American national team member Clint Dempsey has been targeted by […]

UEFA Champions League Gameweek 4, Wednesday: Open Thread

No offense Manchester United or Manchester City supporters, but today’s UEFA Champions League matches are a lot more enticing than yesterday’s affair. Borussia Dortmund against Arsenal promises to be an incredible match to watch, while Barcelona against AC Milan is quite intriguing too. On top of that, there’s plenty more […]
