Bologna Ruin Ronaldinho Debut

The eyes of the every milanista were set on this date.  It was well over a year in the making.  The speculations, the on again- off again of the entire operation.   From the “Gordinho” headlines to his flashes of brilliance here and there all led up to his triumphant arrival […]

AC Milan’s Prodigal Son Returns

Serie A Talk readers have probably noticed the headline change but I’ve changed more than that. After some deliberation I trashed the first post on ‘Shevchenko’s Triumphant Return’ as Andriy hasn’t been triumphant since leaving Milan and it looked likely he wasn’t going to find an opening to return or showed […]

Transfer Market Update – AC Milan’s Bargain And Manchester United’s Hypocrisy

It’s hard to label any transfer deal that costs 21 million Euros a bargain but considering the numbers that have been thrown around this summer, Ronaldinho’s move to AC Milan looks to be cheap. The former two-time World Player of the Year (2004, 2005) signed a three-year contract at the […]

Phil Scolari Set to Sign…Everyone

Portugal manager Luiz Felipe Scolari stirred the footballing pot when Chelsea announced an agreement with him to become their next manager, at the termination of his Portugal contract after Euro 2008.

He stayed put, delaying his inevitable […]

Fan Diary – 15 August, 2010: Avoiding The Result

It’s been a while since I’ve been unable to watch Liverpool’s opening day match live. The last time was 2007 against Aston Villa. It went like this: George (A Mancunian; a regular at the brewery where I bartended; a City diehard; a Setanta subscriber) plopped the tape of the match on the bar top. I filled his half-gallon […]

Poll: Can Southend Beat Chelsea?

After Chelsea’s nightmare result from Sunday, Luiz Felipe Scolari now has to travel to Roots Hall Stadium tomorrow night for a FA Cup replay against Southend. On a cold night in Essex, the last club Chelsea want to face is a League One side known for pulling off a cup […]

Virgil van Dijk has given Southampton one of the best center back pairings in England

For all his Liverpool deficiencies, Dejan Lovren is actually remembered fondly by Southampton fans as a pacy, reliable, ball-playing defender who surprisingly did very little wrong. Brought to St. Mary’s from French club Lyon for £8.5 million, Lovren’s performances were enough to convince Liverpool to part with £20 million for […]
