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 13

Totti was a star in the 3-1 win over Bari For Italian soccer fans, the international break was excruciating.  The national team had two friendlies (which Arsenal fans would not consider too friendly) and watched to see who else would qualify from Europe.  Thankfully, the action from this weekend was […]

The Fate of Antonio Cassano

If he were an opera star, he would be il divo.  If he were an American sports star, he would be called a prima dona (yes, Americans don’t speak other languages well) and be compared to Terrell Owens or various NBA figures.  If he was a politician, he would rise […]

Lessons Learned from Giornata 11

After Napoli’s disappointing start to the season, president Aurelio De Laurentis has decided to “dismiss” Roberto Donadoni as head coach, and has now hired Walter Mazzarri. Napoli were looking forward to a successful season, with new signings such as Quagliarella, De Sanctis, and Cigarini. Napoli looked ready to shine with […]

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 […]

Lessons Learned from Giornata 5

It’s crunch time in Serie A, as clubs must play three games in the span of 8 days this week, and even more over the next eleven days if they are playing in international competitions. It’s a Bad Month to Be a Milan Fan: Not only is rival Inter atop […]

Keegan Staying?

Newcastle United have just released a statement saying that they wish for Kevin Keegan “to continue to play an instrumental role as manager of the club”. This announcement further confuses the matter of whether Keegan will be staying at St James’ Park, or not. To see a full copy of […]
